THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, May 3, 1963 "Terry Appreciates Behind Plate ~ This Is*the second of three Stories intended to help young pitchers—The Editor. 2 By RALPH TERRY *• New York Yankees As a pitcher on the Yankees I can fully appreciate what it means to havn a good catcher. I believe that if sandlol. pitchers had more confidence In their catchers they would become better pitchers. Catchers see more of the ball field than any other player and I think the sandlot pitcher should bear this in mind. One big thing that helped Ralph Houk become such a successful manager is that he was a catcher. His first year as a manager was at Denver in 1955. Tt was my second year in pro ball and he caught me several limes because I was a young pitcher and needed help. Having caught me, couched me and managed me, Ralph knows me better than anybody.. He has seen me develop right from n Yankee rookie camp. He knows M>hen I'm tiring or when I'm not mixing my pitches properly. He can tell when I'm not selling up JJie hitlers correctly and when I'm not finishing them off just right. . » So I feel very fortunate in having him on hand. You may think he's counting pebbles when he stands with one foot in the dugout and the other on the steps and reaches out to smooth the soil near the Yankee bench. But he's watching every pilch and how the pilches are being called by Ellio Howard, Yogi Berra or John Blanchard, catchers. You might say I have I w o catchers watching my every move, the one, behind the plate and our manager in the dugout. Ybu'vo got to give a good catcher a lot of credit. If he's calling the game right down the line with your thinking this gives you all the confidence in the world. You feel more relaxed and a little freer out there. Don't ever cross up your catch- If you disagree with him, shake him off unlil he gives you Ihe sign you wanl. Then after the inning is over lell him why you shook him off. You must do everything .with a purpose. Tnkc the last world series game. I had a no-hiller going with two out in the sixth inning. Jack Sanford, the Giants' pitcher, was up. Maybe I forgot for the moment that Ellie Howard was calling a perfect game. Ellie wanted to throw Sanford a curve. I shook him off. Then Ellie signaled for the fust ball. It was the pilch I wanted to throw Sanford. I thought he wouldn't be looking for it. But he was. Sanford singled to center nnd got the first hit of the game. It'll a good idea to pilch to a target, say the catcher's knees, his shoulders or his mill. A lol of times a batter will move around, faking a bunt or jusl generally Irying to distract you. His moves won't bother you one bit if you concentrate on (he catcher's target or the target you picked. When you're hitting your tar- our.get regularly you can ignore a latter who shifts around, Good ontrol enables you to steel your- elf against the batter who stands lose then opens his stance, or be batter who stands back then moves closer to the plate. Sometimes Hie catcher can see hese things belter. Remember, ic works just as hard, if not harder, than the pilcher. I learned nc thing by shaking Howard off; never tiy to improve on icrfection. You just can't. Don't ever fight your catcher. Vou can't pilch good ball unless you both agree. Next: Start slowly to gain control. Fishing Is Fine In Lakes, Ponds PRATT, Kan.

Takes Lots Of Money Run A Ball Club To GOOD CATCHER'S HELP- Yankee pitching ace Ralph Terry believes a young pitcher should work with his catcher. Here Ellie Howard puts out by standing his ground before lagging Boston's Ed Bressoud. Musial Stars For Cards; Held's Blast Chills A's By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-The man in the stands knows the, players and he knows the general scheme of major league baseball competition. But there are many items about the big leagues with which he may not be familiar. The financial end, for example. How many fans know that a rule, in effect since 1887, stipulates that each player must leave a deposit of $30 on his uniform? The deposit is returned to the player at the end of the season. This rule hasn't been adhered to since the early 1920s. How about the money that comes in al the gate? How much does the visiting club get? In the National League, the visitors receive 28 1 /i cents for every paying customer, no matter how much the fan has paid at the box office. The league collects six cents on every admission.

Main CH 2-1522 Musial, 42, hnd jusl clubbed a decisive three-run double in the seventh inning as the St. Louis Cardinals nudged the Chicago Cubs 4-3 Thursday night and pulled two games ahead in the National League. The hit gave Musial 1,356 extra base hits for his career, lying Ruth's major league record. Musial, who holds or shares 42 National League records and 15 major league marks, has 717 doubles, 175 triples and 464 home runs. In Kansas City, the Athletics wilted under an 18-hit Cleveland attack, losing 15-6. The defeat dropped the A's into second place in the American League, six percentage points beliind Ihe Boston Red Sox. The A's and Sox open a 3-game series in Kansas City tonight. Musi al stopped by the Cub dressing room after the game to see former Cardinal Larry Jackson and was asked to pose for the picture with the pitcher. Oddly enough, Jaokson would have preferred to pitch to Musial in the seventh instead of Ken Boyer, his former roommate. "I'd rather pilch to Musial or anybody else on the team," Jackson said, "because Kenny's broken up more games for the Cardinals than anybody else." As it turned out, Jackson didn't finish pitching to Boyer and wasn't around for Musial's hit. With the Cardinals ahead 1-0 Jackson was relieved in the seventh with two on and two out and a 3-0 count on Boyer. Don Elston threw a fourth ball to Boyer. Then Musial crashed a drive off the left field wall for a 4-0 Cardinal lead. The Cubs scored three times in the ninth on Ron Santo's homer. Ray Wnshburn won his fifth game without a defeat, although he was unable to finish for the first time this year. He left after Santo's two-out homer. "I think I got a little chilled sitting on the bench," Washburn said, "and I really felt tired in (lie ninth. "I was really high on the fact I had six innings going without allowing a hit, but they finally got to me." Washburn went 6 2-3 innings against Los Angeles last Saturday jefore giving up a hit. Kansas City blew a 4-1 lead as he Indians teed off on starter and loser Dave Wickersham and reliever Diego Segui. Woodie Held led Cleveland with wo hits, including a grand slam rome run, and five RBI. Tito Vancona got Ihree doubles and a single. The victory went to Barry Latman, who pitched seven innings n relief and held the A's to two ills and two inns. Rookie catcher Bill Bryan hit a home run and a triple for the A's.

The visiting team gets 20 cents for every fan who sits in the bleachers and 30 cents for every grandstand customer. The league collects six cents on every admission. What are some of the incidental expenses connected with running a club? Well, the Cleveland club, for example, spent $75,000 for railroad and plane fares last season. The Indians paid hotel bills totaling $61,625, exclusive of meals. Meal money, at $10 a day per man, came to $27,750. Players get meal money only when on the road. Players receive no salary during spring training. The only recompense other than meal money is $25 a week for laundry and incidentals. The player buys his own glove which he usually gets free by endorsement, but the club pays for his bats. Baseballs cost each club about $15,000 a year and bats come to around $2,500. Bowling Sets New EKL Mark Ottawa High placed third, be- lind Argentine and Turner, in the East Kansas League varsity track meet yesterday at Argentine. But 'the Cyclones made their marks. Charles Bowling, senior, set a new EKL vault record of 12 feet, 1114 inches, beating the old 12- feet, 7Vi-inch mark set in 1959 l>y a Bonner Springs vaulter. Ottawan Wayne Parker won the 880-yard run in 2:04.7, and the Ottawa medley relay team came out on top. Jerry Turley, Roger Ferguson, Rick Jamison and Craig Davis make up the ieam. The final scores of all six par- icipating teams: Argentine, 83%; Turner 65; Dttawa, 42; Bonne Springs, 24; Rosedale, 16%, and Olathe, 9'A Ottawa High athletes will go to Lawrence Tuesday, May 7, to take lart in the Lawrence Relays, formerly known as the Haskell Re- ays. The Lawrence Relays will be at the Haskell Institute stadium. Whirlwinds Win Emporia Invitational It was another complete Ottawa Junior High School victory on the cinders yesterday afternoon at the Emporia Invitational Track- Meet. Coach Don Kornhaus was a broad beam of smiles as he congratulated his top winner, Ron Boyer, who gave the Whirlwinds first place finishes in the 100- yard low hurdles, pole vault and Scoreboard By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League W.

Two new school records were set as Ronnie Lloyd heaved the shot 50 feet 5'/<z inches, bettering his previous mark of 49-1 set in the EKL meet. Boyer also added a new mark in the 100-yard low hurdles as he ripped off a 13.2 time. The amazing fact about Boyer's performance in the hurdles was that he was filling in for injured Dennis Cook and went on to set a new OJHS record and post a winning time over some of the toughest competition in the area, according to his coach Don Kornhaus. Ottawa swept through seven of the 12 events as Whirlwind depth paid a handsome dividend. The Reds placed a man in every event for the sweep. Other first place winners were Larry Williams, 50-yard dash; Madison Stein, high jump (tie), and the 440-relay team of Carter, Williams, Boyer and Gage. With one of the most impressive seasons on record, the Whirlwinds will journey to Lawrence West next week for a dual meet. Coach Don Kornhaus expressed satisfaction with his galloping group and only grinned when he mentioned Lawrence West.

(AP)—Jacl Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, who specialize in destroying par scor- ng in golf, threatened today to make a two-man show of the $0,000 Tournament of Champions. Nicklaus, who has divested Palmer of such valuable crowns as the National Open and the Masters, led the way into the second round with a lead of two strokes over Palmer after shooting a record 8-under-par 64 Thursday. The 23-year-old Nicklaus might even duplicate the wire-to-wire win by Arnold in this same event last year — and incidentally, remove still another gem from Arnie's crown. Palmer had a first round 34-32— 66 for the par 36-36—72 Desert Inn Country Club and at the moment it appeared good enough to lead the round. Nicklaus soon after deflated this thought when he holed a 40-foot putt for an eagle 3 on the 15th. There are 25 other professionals competing here, but as South Africa's Gary Player observed in noting Nicklaus' terrific round: "He is so powerful and so straight there is no telling how good this man will be." Three shots off the pace was Bill Collins, who displayed no evidence of a back ailment which has hampered him all year. The 34-year-old pro from Miami, Fla., shot 34-33—67. Tied al 70 were Bill Casper, Jr., Bo Wininger, Johnny Pott and Doug Sanders, and rounding out those who broke par with 71s were Doug Ford, Jacky Cupit, Lionel Hebert, Gardner Dickinson and Jerry Barber.
