fgsmmsGoslin Honoredzvvzxtmmmzq Pride of Salem Enters the Hall j By HENRY QUINTON Courier-Post Staff COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - South Jersey moved into the national baseball spotlight today as Leon (Goose) Goslin, the pride and joy of Salem and Cumberland Counties, was inducted into the national pastime's Hall of Fame. A plaque honoring the former Detroit Tiger outfielder was one of three dedicated during solemn ceremonies at the hallowed shrine of the game's immortals at the sport's birthplace. The other greats enshrined were Joe (Ducky) Medwick, ex-St. Louis Cardinal outfielder of Carteret, N.J., who was a 1934 World Series rival of the Goose, and Kiki Cuyler, former Chicago Cub infielder who was named posthumously. Goslin and Medwick were greeted on the front porch of the new National Baseball Library where the plaques were dedicated by some of the Hall of Famers they were to join. Included were Bill Terry, Lefty Grove, Bob Feller, Charley Gehringer, Ray Schalk, and Zack Wheat, all of whom could attest to Goslin's greatness through personal encounters; and former teammates Joe Cronin, Heine Manush, and Sam Rice. V Other Hall members present were: Pie Traynor, and Lloyd Waner, who were in the National League with Medwick; Frank Frisch, who managed him in St. Louis, and ex-Yankees Bill Dickey and Red Ruffing, who had their troubles with Goose in World Series and All-Star competition. Hall of Famer Joe McCarthy, who managed the 1929 champion Chicago Cubs of which Cuyler was a member, represented Kiki's teammates of that era. Kiki played against Goslin in the 1925 World Series and opposed all the returning greats mentioned, in addition to Hall member Ed Roush, who also was on hand. Goslin and Medwick were "informally" accepted last night at a party for the returning Hall of Famers in a downtown hotel. Baseball's official family was represented at the ceremonies by Commissioner William D. Eckert, league presidents Warren C. Giles and Cronin; Ford C. Frick, now chairman of the Hall of Fame directors, and Will Harridge, American League chairman of the board. Also honored at the morning exercises were the late Damon Runyon, named recipient of the annual J. G. Taylor Spink citation to a baseball writer; and Ray Larsen, of Illinois, who received the American Legion player of the year plaque. Goslin and Medwick were to be honored later at a luncheon and the day's festivities were to be closed ; by a game between the American League-leading Detroit Tigers and the Pittsburgh Pirates. The two leagues have been pitted against each other here since 1940, except for the war years, with the American League leading the series 11 to 9. 4 :$&c ... i'M A L COURIER-FOST, Camden, N. J Monday, July 22, 1968 27 17 Unsigned Vets , On Eagles9 Roster By RAY W. KELLY Courier-Post Staff LARRY HANEY could be looking for a hole in the ground after Tiger's Tom Matchick, caught Baltimore catcher off second base in -UPI-Courier-Post Telefax third inning and umpire John Rice prepares to signal the out. Orioles had last and best laugh, though, as they won two games from Detroit. Detroit's Lead Cut to 5V2 Games Orioles Whip Tigers Twice The Baltimore Orioles stole a hotel banner in Detroit yesterday and then all but hijacked the league leading Detroit Tigers. The Tigers, who led the American League by games at the All-Star break 10 days ago, had the lead sliced to 5'j games as they were wnippea twice by the Orioles 5-2 and 4-1 before 48,568 disappointed fans in Tiger Stadium. The sweep gave the Orioles three victories in their four-game weekend series and left them tied for second place with Cleveland as they look forward to next weekend's three-game set with Detroit in Baltimore. Steal Series Banner The Orioles plan to have their newly acquired banner displayed In their clubhouse in Baltimore. Ripped from the front of the Sheraton-Cadillac Hotel in Detroit where the Orioles and most of the Ameri can League clubs stay, it reads: Welcome AL teams and Cardi nals in October. The hotel is already planning to host the Cardinals for the World Series. But while the Cardinals, leading by VPA, are a good bet to make it, the Orioles hope the Cardinals have to go to Baltimore for the series. Cleveland blew a chance to move within iVj games of the Tigers when they lost to New York 8-4 in the second game after running their winning streak to six straight with a 4-1 victory in the opener. Elsewhere in the American sota swept a doubleheader from League, Boston beat Washington Oakland 7-5 and 10-0 and Chi-4-3 but lost the second game by cago beat California 5-1 but lost an identical 4-3 margin, Minne-,the second game 7-0. 3 Swim Clubs Stay Unbeaten Gloucester and Square remained unbeaten in the Suburban League and Woodbine won its 21st straight Tri-County. circuit test to highlight swim club meets Saturday. Maureen Littman, swimming in . the 13-14 age bracket,, won three events arid set a loop rec ord with 1:14.8 in the 100 meter freestyle as Gloucester beat Meadowbrook for its fifth victory, 235-120. Teammate Larry Elwell also won three while Meadowbrook's Dog Lockwood posted a triple, including a loop record of 31.9 in the 11-12 50 freestyle. Whitman, Whitman Park jolted Black wood, 242-112, as Jack Wyn-koop, Chip Uhle and Mary Ba-selice turned in circuit standard-topping efforts. Wynkoop did 34.4 in the 13-14 50 butterfly, Uhle swam 1:13.4 in the 15-18 100 backstroke and Baselice did 43.1 in the 15-18 breakstroke as Whitman Square won No. 5.

Contracts, or rather the lack of them, were the main topic of converstion yesterday as the Eagles opened full squad operations at their new Albright College training camp. Seventeen of the 74 players on the roster haven't signed yet, which wouldn't be usual except that the majority of the unsigned are established players. Running backs Izzy Lang and Tom Woodeschick top the list of holdouts which includes Quarterback King Hill defensive backs Joe Scarpati, Al Nelson, Jim Nettles and Ron Medved. plus linebackers Harold Wells, Mike Morgan and Fred Brown. Others include Gary Ballman, John Myers, Jim Skaggs, Lane Howell Fred Hill, Gary Pet-tigrew, and Chuck Hughes. It is expected that many of the players will refuse to go through more than token workouts until they have ageed to terms. Floyd Peters and Mel Tom were the only players signed yesterday, but they didn't draw half as much attention as a trio who dind't show up at all. Hill, Skaggs and lineman Lynn Hoyem aim t report on time. If they don't have ex ceptable excuses when they get here coach general manager Joe Kuharich might levy some kind of punishment. Since three rookies are work' ing out with the college all- astars, the - total number of players on hand has dropped to 68. I he dip in population was helped along by the cutting of five free agents and two players who were with the team last year. The latter two were defensive back Jim Grey and guard Gorson Wright. Turned loose were free agents Bruce Bubnis, a guard from Pitt; Bob Curington, a running back from North Carolina College; Norm Lcgacki, a defensive back from Michigan; Ed Loosll, an end from Colorado College, and Jim Murray, a center form Syracuse. Saiizo Sets U.S. Mark AtAtco Ed Sanzo of Brooklyn, N.Y., drove his Chevy-powered 1933 Willys to a national record in winning the Gas Supercharged Meet at Atco Dragway Saturday night. Sanzo's 9.98 elapsed time (at 140.62 miles per hour) broke the old mark of 10.03. Jersey Engineering finished second in the meet with a 10.50 clocking in a '40 Willys pickup. Norm Fryer of Wuliamstown was the weekend's only double winner as he defeated Herb Richman both Saturday and last night as top super stock. Fryer won Saturday with a 12.40 e.t. at 98.75 mph and last night with a 12.25 clocking at 102.73 mph. Bill Warburton of Chester, Pa. made his debut a smashing success as he drove his fuel dragster to top eliminator victory last night in a time of 9.09 at 140.40 mph. Bruce Thompson drove Nick Bonifante's dragster to victory Saturday night. Bob Valente won street eliminator honors last night in a Chevy-powered '38 Coupe in 11.65 (115.83) while Bill Powell drove his '64 Chevy Malibu to victory Saturday night in 11.88 (115.97). , Gerald Campbell was top stock winner last night in his Pontiac Firebird in 12.99 at 107.91 mph with Saul Walker winning Saturday in 12.22 at 114.94 mph.
