WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22,1959 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEIf Norman Booed Detroit Fans Are Fed Up By DAVE DELES DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have had their warning — their fans are fed,up. ' Seven losses in eight games are costing the owners money and will cost them much more unless the club can pull out fast from the early tailspin. There were 12,935 spectators on band Tuesday night as Cleveland walloped Detroit 14-1. Many of them booed manager Bill Norman and starting pitcher Paul Foytack when the Indians routed the Tiger right-hander in the first inning. Norman got the treatment in the seventh when he replaced George Susce, and again in the ninth when the Indians routed Hank Aguirre. When the public address man announced that the brand new Tiger yearbooks are on sale, the hooting of the fans practically drowned out his voice. The crowd booed ex-Tiger Billy Martin, too, but the fiery little second baseman had the last laugh. One spectator near the NATIONAL LEAGUE Pet. G.B.

Martin replied: "It's a good thing I'm not. It's embarrassing enough with all these other guys hitting." This was a belligerent crowd and the attendance — which dropped more than 173,000 last season—is apt to show an even sharper decline. The Tigers' faltering starts are fast Becoming a baseball legend. Only one first division finish in eight seasons has the fans moaning and there is evidence they are going to be a lot slower with the dollar at the box office unless the Tigers do something except say "Wait 'til next year."
