Idaho Free Press 4 Caldwell News-Tribune, Tuesday, June IJJ967- 7 Nats' Casanova Hero in 22nd Inning By United Press a a u u It was baseball's longest tugtt but it was just barely long enough for Paul Casanova's second chance. Casanova caught the entire 22 innings of the Chicago White Soi-Wishington Senators contest that was Die longest nigfcl game in major league history Moad»y night and this morning. But the Washington catcher wasn't too proud of the distinction as he walked back to the dugout for the bottom of the 22nd inning. lie had gone (Wor^ and had hit into a double play with the bases loaded and one out in his last time at bat in the 20th inning. Casanova got another chance, however, in the 22nd when with one out Mike Epstein was intentionally walked to load the bases and bring Casanova up. But this time he stroked a single off John Buzhardt to give the Senators a 6-5 victory over the league - leading Chicago White Sox in the six hour and SB-minute marathon that ended at 2:43 a.m. EOT. It was just 22 minutes short of the seven-hour Yankee-Tiger 22-inning game in 1962 that was the longest American League game ever. The Mets and Giants played the longest game ever in 19G4 when they battled 7 hours and 23 minutes over 23 innings. The game also produced odd records -- for example, the teams played the entire game without an error to mark the longest errorless game. Epstein also tied the mark for putouts by a first baseman with 34. Rudy York handled the same number when the Tigers battled the A.'s for 24 innings in 1945. Both teams used six pitchers and when Buzhardt and Bob Humphreys were dueling at the end, the managers had virtually run out of pitchers. Both had four left but two had started Sunday for each team, one Saturday and the fourth was the starter tonight.

As far as Gary Player Is concerned, the 150 men who tee off Thursday in the first round of the U.S. Open golf championship will be touring "the best conditioned course 1 have ever played on-- anytime, anywhere." Player, Buick Open winner Julius Boros, 1966 Open king Billy Casper, and 1966runner-up Arnold Palmer were among the many stars who tested the since 1920--and he means to do it again. "Mark my words," he said, jabbing with a forefinger to emphasize his point. "I'm going to win the Open again sometime. Maybe right here this year. Maybe next year or another year. But I'm going to win the Open again. walking. Cap Peterson singled him to third, Epstein was intentionally walked and Casanova then ended it.

In the National League, Atlanta topped Philadelphia 7-4, Baylor, Wilt Offered Deal LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Two of the National Basketball League's biggest drawing cards, Elgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain, have been offered a deal whereby they will become part owners of a rival American Basketball Association team in Los Angeles that would begin operating next fall. Baylor's attorney, Fred H. Rosenfeld of Beverly Hills, Calif., disclosed Monday night that he has been carrying on negotiations for the two NBA superstars. Baylor in recent weeks has been known to be unhappy with his current Los Angeles Laker contract, which has a year to run. He reportedly desires a pay boost from $70,000 to the $90,000-level.

In addition, he played three years of baseball at third base and shortstop -- helping Oregon State to the Pacific Athletic Conference title in 1963 and 1964. Hutchinson, who spent part of last summer as a Marine Corps reserve, played two years for Kentucky at third base and in the outfield during 1964 and 1965. Hutchlnson's brother, Jack, 18, is a second base man at North Florida Junior College. Neither Hilliard nor Hutchinson have any specific goals this summer while playing for the Cubs. "I do want a chance to play a lot," said Hutchinson Monday, '£s playing every night Is the big thing. I realize everyone needs to play though so 1 probably won't play as much as I would like." Billiard, who holds a masters' degree in health education from Oregon State, stated, "My only aspiration this summer istodoa good Job. I'm hopeful I'll hit much better than a year ago here." Neither man has any time limit on reaching major league status with the Chicago Cubs. Hutehinson pointed out, '1 signed with the Cubs because 1 always wanted to play ball and they gave me a chance. I had talked to the Yankee and Pirate organizations, but they didn't offer me a contract." Hilliard wants to keeprislngin the Cub chain until "there's a non-«xisting chance of making the big leagues.
