APRTL 25, 1952 FAMOUS 5—.Another era passed on to the baseball archives as Joe DlMaggio presented his famed No. 5 uniform lo Rowan Sprakcr, Baseball Hall of Fame vice-president. It will join Babe Ruth's No. 3 and Lou Gehiifi's No. 4 in Coonerstown N.Y. (NBA) * Durocher and Bickford Join Forces in Attacking Ump NEW YORK (XPj—Manager Leo Durocher or the New York Giants and pitcher Vern Bickford of the Boston Braves, rivals on the baseball Held, shared a mutual case of high blood pressure today and for a mutual reason—an umpire. Both Durocher and Bickford bitterly attacked plate umpire Art Gore for thumbing them out of yesterday's ga/ne at the Polo Grounds, won by the Braves in 10 innings 6-3. "If I had a player who didn't follow my signals any better than these umpires follow the rules," stormed Durocher, "I wouldn't keep him five minutes." "Some of these umpires are too complacent." said Bickford. "They've got these Jobs for life and they know they can't lose them unless they break a leg. So they don't hustle. They ought to be like .players—have to work to keep their jobs." "Used Abusive Language" Durocher was ejected at the top of the sixth inning for protesting that Boston Pitcher Warren Spahn threw a "quick pitch" to'Giant outfielder Willie Mays at the bottom of the fifth. — Durocher contended this should have been called a balk and Bobby Thomson, on third, should have been allowed to score. Gore threw him out of the game for what he called abusive language. Durocher said he didn't use abusive language until he had been tossed out and "then I let him have It — I called? him every name I knew." The fiery Giant manager said President Warren Giles recently had asked umpires to watch for quick pitches since "they're as dangerous as tlie bean ball." Bickford On Bench "If you're not going to abide bj the rules you might as well throw them out the window," he added. Bickford 'was ejected from the Boston bench after he protestec that Gore and first base umpire Bill Stewart had failed to see Boston's Earl Torgeson tag the Giants Max Lanier on a hidden ball play "They lost the ball entirely and then .said .time was called," complained Bickford. Gore left town for another assignment immediately after the game and couldn't be reached for comment. Robinson-Maxim Title Fight Squabble Hearing Showdown NWT YORK WV-The Hay Robin•on-Joey Maxim title fight for June 23 will be made tortav or it won't go at all. That's what President Jim Norris of the International Boxing Club and George Galllford, manager of Robinson, said after dickering all through Thursday on the IMvt heavyweight title fight for the Yankee Stadium. A demand by Sugar Ray, the middleweight king, for the lioirs share of the purse held up the signing. Maxim and Norris had expected to arrange Ihe whole deal yesterday. Maxim, who will be risking his 175-pound title, has agreed to a 30-30 split with Robinson. Will Okay Split But Sugar Ray. who had been expected to okay the even split, presented a demand for anythini; from 35 to 45 per cent. Those close to the situation believe (hat if the match is closed, it will be on a 3,1-25 basis with Sugar Ray getting . the heavier cut. "Robinson is the guy they're so- ing to come to see get. knocked o;u ain't he?" said Gainford. "He's the guy that will draw the money." "Robinson is scared of gutting a licking." said Maxim as he fidgetei in the foyer of the IBC's office "What he waiting for I'm getting ulcers chasing Doc (Manager Jack Kearns) and waiting on Robinson. This is tougher thai fighting."
