WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1968 SPRING BASEBALL ROUNDUP T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Frank Howard Reaches 'Record By Associated Press Frank Howard may get a lot of surprises before the 1968 baseball season ends, but none is likely to be more astonishing than seeing his salary dispute with end Record. the Washington Senators up in the Congressional The big left fielder signed for $47,500 early this week a holdout and Tuesday about after John P. Saylor of Pennsylvania rose on the floor of the House of Representatives to take note of the negotiations "for possible future reference." Saylor was talking about statements made by George Selkirk, the Senators' general manager. Selkirk was reported as saying, "It might be pleasant to see someone out there in left who can throw, run and field." Saylor reqlied, "In view of management's enviable position whereby a player, bound by the reserve clause, cannot contract with more than one professional baseball club, it is unfortunate that he should be subjected to insults when he seeks to bargain for a salary raise." Saylor continued that Howard "may not be worth what he is asking, or even what he has been offered, but whether a ball club's exclusive seigniory carries with it the right to public castigation of its vassals is open to a question of ethics." The message is not likely to be lost on other general managers, but, in at least one case, it is probably unnecessary. Baltimore Personnel Director Harry Dalton could certainly have little derogatory to say about Frank Robinson's throwing, running or fielding. Robinson and the Orioles still were some $15,000 apart Tuesday, the 1966 batting champion asking for §125,000. "We did not up our offer and Frank did not come down," Dalton said. "I repeated I felt we had made a very fair, considerate offer and told him I felt it was time he signed and got to work." Another major holdout, Jim Maloney of Cincinnati, was no closer than Robinson to signing Tuesday. Instead, said the pitcher, he was going home to Fresno, Calif., hinting darkly that he hoped the Reds would trade him. General Manager Bob Howsam said the next move was up to Maloney. Howsam is also still trying to get his star outfielder, Vada Pinson, to sign a contract. The Reds did sign two of their holdouts, though, as outfielder Pete Rose and reserve infielder Chico Ruiz agreed to terms. The Pittsburgh Pirates signed up their last player when Matty Alou arrived in camp from the Dominican Republic where he said he had trouble getting a visa. Pitcher Bob Humphreys also signed with the Senators Tuesday.
