B*«ti, Calif.. Tu«., March 13,19H Ryan's pain ended by bone operation? HOLTVILLE - Nolan R y a n lived a lie last season. The Angels' pilcher couldn'l sleep some nights because his right arm--his pitching arm--throbbed in pain. At times he couldn't raise his hand high enough to comb his hair or brush his teeth. But he told no one, and, although suffering, he pitched well "tcnough to win U games for 3 team (hat had little hitting, He struck out 18fi batters in 198 innings and had a yAfi earned-run average. Using pitching wisdom instead of the overpowering fastball for which he's known, Ryan was also good enough last season to notch his fourth career no-hitter. Ryan, 2fl, had an operation during the winter, the surgeon removing four bone chips from his -right elbow. The pain and the suffering arc wit in the open now, and Ryan knows that if he doesn't have the fastball t h i s year everyone will know why--and his career will most likely be finished. "1 would say if you're going to have an operation." Ryan said, "the best kind lo have is a bone- chip operation. Now I have no reservations at all about my arm. I haven't had any problems so 1 have no reason to be hesitant a b o u t throwing or anything else." R y a n recalls last season as nightmarish. "I knew something was wrong the first trip to Minnesota," he said of an April 15 game. "1 had very mediocre stuff, but I won the game. "The n e x t day 1 c o u l d n ' t straighten my arm out. It was * * Ik- alxiul halfway up and my elbow was swollen. I went out and tried to throw with it, trying In figure out what had happened. It would gel to where I could straighten it out about 85 per cent. 1 thought it was because 1 had rushed it after leg injuries had kept me to only II innings in spring training." By the middle of June, the pnin was constant, and he had little strength in his arm. "I kept on winning because my control was good, 1 was mixing my pitches and 1 was gelling a lot of runs," he said. "But the longer I pitched, the worse it got." The pain, and the mounting losscs--12 of them during the season--finally took their toll. Ryan, known for his mild-mannered congeniality, began to get testy, once Blowing up at reporters. But now he's philosophical about his chances of regaining the flamethrowing form thai made him one of the most feared pitchers in the majors. "If my arm doesn't respond and it doesn't work out," he said, "I've had a good career. Sooner or later, everybody's going to have to leave the game and I don't think anybody's ever ready for it." If signs this spring are indicative, however, he won't have to worry about it for a while. Ryan has thrown well enough in practice to prompt AJigels' manager Dick Williams to say he was "ecstatic" about Ryan's apparent recovery. Ryan wil! probably get hJs first true test Thursday against the Oakland A's in Mesa. Ariz. ANGELS GETTING READY HOLTVILLK - The A n g e l s went through a three-hour workout Mondny readying for their first-and only--intrasquad g a m e of spring training. The Angels had Ihe camp game on tape Tuesday before leaving IloKville, the minor league base where t h e y always open spring drills More moving north to Palm Springs. The Angels play liielr i b s t c-:hi- bilion game Wednesday, facing the Cleveland Indians at Tucson. They play the Oakland A's Thursday in Mesa, Am., where Nolan Ryan is scheduled to give his recuperating arm its first big test. ,-. nv-^-^^J.-J^.^ HOLLINGWORTH-- White (Continued from Page C-l) BUSH PREVIOUSLY had said thai the Olympics were too political and had advocated substituting world championships annually in each sport Schollander countered by saying, "Jim Bush doesn'l grasp the purpose of the Olympic Games one bit. The Olympic Games ARE necessary. · "Schollander hasn't gollen oul of the pool yet!" snapped'Bush. "How does he know I don't grasp the purpose of the Olympics? "I'm not against Ihc Olympic Games' Image, but I nm against the darned politics and fighting surrounding the Olympics. "Loo\ at history. Track is Ihe source of almost all Ihc Olympic problems. So, doesn'l it make sense to have yearly track and field competitions among the world's nations at some outstanding facility, rather than regular four-year buildups for a big Donnybrook? "The original idea of the Olympics was fine, hut we've gone beyond that. If Mr. Schollander would get out of the pool, he'd come to that realization, loo." THE MEET U hours earlier still preyed upon Bush's mind. "II was a cheap win we gol over Tennessee--the Vols deserved a tie," steamed Bush, who dearly is nol cut from Ihc usual coach's mold. "Can you imagine a guy on my learn being disqualified, like our mile relay anchor man was. for throwing rtown Ihe baton? "We didn't lose any points because Tennessee also got disqualified when one of its runners cut in on our man, but our snolalion was disgusting. There's gonna be a few UC1..A people chcwcd-oul Ihis week." Askrd how he would rate Ixmg Beach Slate nationally, the Bruin track coach cracked: "The only place (he ·IDers are weak Is In Ihc high Jump." The remark was made for the benefit of world record holder Dwight Stones, who once worked under Bush at UCLA, bul who now is a Ixjng Bench Stale stttrlenl and alhlele. When Stones look Ihe verbal jab with a smile, Bush reflected: "Dwighl Stones is my friend, lie can go to any school he wants as tang an he gets a degree." Since neither are shrinking violets, Bush and Stones must huve had some happy Iraining sessions at UCLA. IRREPRESSIBLE DWIGHT was nol quite so overpowering as his former coach, but he almost held his own. "I was supposed to make my mile relay debut today (in a triangular meet with Washington and Occidental), but since the meet probably will be close, the coach doesn't wanl to blow it," he said. "HTien I debul In the relay, though, ll'Il give the writers something else (o talk aboul--something like ·Dwight Stones, world's best quartermller.' "I consider the Long Beach Slate season a luneup for the Olympic Games. Oh, I'll try lo win all the time, but when I've exhausted the opposition. I won't tire myself and go any higher." Dwight couldn't let well enough alone. He pointed to Bush and yelled, "Coach, where we gonna have the high jump Sunday ttiic -i?ers contest the Bruins at Westwoodl, on Ihe field or on the track?" "When you gel there, son," replied Bush, "It'll be cnSimscl Boulevard," I may attend a few more track and field writers' luncheons. The cnlree may nol always be steak, bul Ihe conversations are laced with hoi sauce. Dodgers will hold clinics NBA standings NHL standings Euttr* Cwrffrmce AtUrfk Drrhlo* W L Pel.
