THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, April 16, 1963 Too Bad Mets Had To Play 9th Inning By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The New York Mets lost again, but there's no PANIC! It's more like CINAP. There's no other way to spell it out for a team that is continually moving backward. , The Mets moved forward for 12-3 innings plus two strikes Monday, then Lee Maye shoved them backward by shoving his bat in front of: a fat pitch for a two-run homer that gave Milwaukee a 4-3 victory in the only game played in the majors. From 72-year-old Casey Stengel, the grizzled, backward-speaking manager, to 18-year-old Ed Kranepool, the rookie outfielder, the loss was a morale-mauler, bringing back the memory of last year's dismal start that never ended. Against the Braves, the Mels mussed their heaviest artillery and boomed out 12 hits, they committed only one error, they led going into the ninth, they were one strike away from victory when Tracy Stallard fired to Maye. The defeat left the Mets with an 0-6 record, dropping them 4% games back of the National League leaders. They are, naturally and uncomfortably, situated in the cellar. Shutout for six innings by Bob Shaw, the Mets struck back in the seventh — and everything worked. In the eighth, the Mets snapped the tie on singles by Kranepool and Duke Snider, a walk to Jim Hickman and a sacrifice fly by Harkness. Unfortunately they had to play the ninth. Stallard, working in relief of starter Al Jackson, got Ed Mathcws and Joe Torre»«to open the inning. One out to go. Stallard got ahead of Maye 1-2. One strike to go. Then Maye struck. The Mets will try again tonight at Cincinnati. National League champion San Francisco finally gets to play its home opener, against Houston, and the Los Angeles Dodgers raise the curtain in their own park against the Chicago Cubs. Pittsburgh will be at St. Louis and Philaclephia at Milwaukee on a full schedule. In the American League, Chicago and Boston hold their home openers, the White Sox meeting K.-msas City and the Red Sox taking on Baltimore. Detroit will be at New York. Los Angeles at Minnesota and Washington at Cleveland. jVame Lettermen At Williamsburg WILLIAMSBURG - P lenty good food and no speeches—that was the program last night for the annual potluck supper honoring Williamsburg high and grade school athletes and cheerleaders.

Mitchell Shifts His Jayhawks LAWRENCE (AP)-Coach Jack Mitchell is experimenting with several lineup changes in spring football practice for his Kansas Jayhawks. There were 84 candidates at the opening session Monday. Dave Crandall was shifted from halfback to quarterback, Tony Leiker from slotback to end, and Armand Baughman from fullback to slotback. With speedster Gale Sayers at tailback and veteran Ken Coleman at fullback, Mitchell says his main problem is developing dependable quarterback. He also plans considerable work this spring on defense, stressing the 6-2 and 5-4 formations as changes from the 6-1 used much of last season. Spring practice will end with a varsity-alumni game May 18. Texans Already Plan Move KANSAS CITY (AP) - Several members of the Dallas Texans are so certain they will be playing football here next fall they are planning to move their families to Kansas City. Supporting them is this statement by Lamar Hunt, owner of the American Football League club: "The move of the Dallas Texans to Kansas City is signed, sealed and delivered with the exception of the advanced ticket sale and the name-the-team contest. From what I have observed I can have no doubt that the ticket sales drive will be anything but a smash success." Hunt told nearly 500 persons at the ticket sales kick-off Monday that even if the 30-day drive falls 5,000 short of the 25,000 goal "There would be plenty of time to sell another 5,000 tickets or so before the opening of the regular season next fall." The ticket drive committee expects to make its first report on sales Thursday. Palmer Out LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - Arnold will miss the Houston Palmer Classic Golf Tournament this week because of work that must be finished on his teeth and on a cyst that was removed from under his left eye, his wife said Tuesday. Hoyt's A Jewel In Sox Bullpen By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)-Probaffly the most comforting feeling a baseball manager can have is to press the alarm for a relief pitcher and have Hoyt Wilhelm trot out rarin' to go like an old fire horse. Al Lopez of the Chicago White Sox is experiencing this glow now. Three times so far he has called on the 39-year-old flutter-ball specialist. And Wilhelm has responded with 10 innings of scoreless relief, yielding only two hits. "I'd say our pitching is nearly 40 per cent stronger with Hoyt in the bull pen to save games," says Lopez. "He's worth more than a 20-game winner, and he works with so little effort that he probably can last as long as Satchel Paige." Wilhelm, who came to the Sox as part of the package deal for Luis Aparicio and Al Smith, is unusual in that he has been throwing a so-called knuckleball all his life. As a kid from a cotton farm, he was baffling batters with it on the Cornelius, N.C., High School team. "I grew up with it so my arm never hurts, and it doesn't take me long to get warmed up—maybe five to seven minutes," says Wilhelm, who was in 52 games for Baltimore last year with an amazing 1.94 earned run average in 93 innings. "It really isn't a knuckle at all. [ keep the nails of my index and middle fingers filed down bluntly. I put resin on them and grip the ball with the tips of them. I grip the ball on the side near the bottom with my thumb and the other side rests against my ring finger." Wilhelm's delivery is halfway between a sidearm and overhand.
