IRE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, March 19, IMS Blue Monday For Hurlers; 26 Home Runs In 10 Games rtv SHELDON SAKOWITZ Associated Press Sports Writer It's getting to be that time of the baseball spring training season when the batters start catching up with the pitchers and begin to find that home run range. The sluggers went on a home run barrage in the 10 major league exhibition games along the grapefruit and cactus circuit Mon- day, accounting for 26 round-trippers. . .Catcher Johnny Orsino of Baltimore set the pace with three homers as the unbeaten Orioles rang up their ninth straight victory in nipping the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 in Tampa. Orsino, a husky right handed swinger, drove in all the Birds' runs. Detroit To Try For Olympics By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-The city of Detroit has won the opening skirmish but may lose the battle in its bid to hold the 1968 Olympic Games. Reaffirmed by the U.S. Olympic Committee as the American city most qualified to make the pitch, the world's motor capital was not overly optimistic over its chances of selling itself to the International Olympic Committee. The Detroit delegation, headed by Gov. George Romney of Michigan and Mayor Jerome P. Cavanaugh, was elated when the city was chosen over four others Monday by the USOC board of directors, but the spearhead of the drive added a sobering note. "We will be definite underdogs before the IOC next October," said Fred C. Matthaei, Sr., chairman of the Detroit Olympic Committee. "It's no secret that the IOC is heavily European flavored. Also, our cause has been hurt by our internal battles — first, the AAU-NCAA power war and then this fight between Los Angeles and Detroit for the site." The IOC is expected to pick the 1968 Olympic site at its meeting in Nairobi, Kenya, next October. Besides Detroit, cities bidding include Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Vienna, Lausanne and Lyons, France.

George Halas of the Chicago Bears has a lot of friends in the oil business. The San Francisco Giants may get into the World Series again. These are all factors affecting a high stakes checker game being played these days on the 23rd floor of a building in Rockefeller Center in New York. The checker players are National Football League Commissioner Pete Rozelle and his crew. They are busy drawing up the 1963 schedule for the 14 teams in the NFL, currently the biggest wheel in sports. Stakes include the hopes of coaches, players and fans, more than $15 million in gate receipts, and television contracts worth almost half that much. "An ideal schedule," said Rozelle, "would result in mass confusion in the standings in the first third of the season, a shaking down in the second and the drive for the titles in the third. "We like to start off with weak teams against weak, strong against strong. Pro football isn't like baseball or basketball, with their long seasons, where a team can have a few bad weeks and still win. A few bad weeks in the NFL and title hopes are gone." The basic schudle problem seems simple enough. The teams are divided into two seven-team divisions. Each plays the others in its division twice, making 12 games, plus two with teams in the other group. The season opens Sept. 15 and closes Dec. 15. But when Rozelle opens his big schedule checker board and starts moving around the colored discs that represent the teams, th. problems begin to pop. up. First, the board is liberally sprinkled with "Xs" — meaning that day is out, at that site. Baseball contributes .the most "X's" since ten NFL teams share quarters with baseball clubs, which rules out many dates until that season ends. Then add these factors: Green Bay, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Minnesota. No game the last weekend in October in Minnesota—the pheasant season opens then. A game in Chicago Nov. 10, when the annual National Petroleum Conference meets. But, please, not the champion Packers, because Wrigley Field is already sold out and Bear owner Halas' oil friends will all demand seats for that game. Stay out of World Series towns. But which teams will be in it? The current guess at NFL headquarters is the New York Yankees and the Giants, with a hedge if the Los Angeles Dodgers come through. The checkers get moved here, there, are replaced. "There's one. consolation," Rozelle said, "with the balance in the league, and a surprise team almost every year, it's just about impossible to go very far wrong on the schedule."
