''In my 19 years in this business I've never seen anything like it--and maybe it explain what the Mets really are," s«i Scott before today's third gam of the World Series. "Instead o being individual sells the Met are a team sell.. ''Undoubtedly .that's becaus in those 19 years there neve has'been a.ieani like the Mets --with no real star standing wa above the others.

Mel Render Is Vietnamese Track Coach WASHINGTON -- World rec. ord holder of the 70-yard dash and 1968 Olympic gold medalist. Army track star Capt. Mei Fender is now passing along his sprint knowledge to future tracksters in the Republic 01 Vietnam. Once dubbed "the world's fastest human" (for his 6.8- second, record - shattering sprint), Fender is a youth coordinator with Civil Operations and Revolutionary Developmenl Support (CORDS) near Saigon where one of his Army duties includes coaching a Vietnamese track team. He is preparing the team for the December Southeast Asian Games in Burma. Fender, 32, began his sprint lo fame and glory at 25 when he was invited to a practice meet with the Japanese Olympic track team because he was the fastest, man on a post football team. Following this meet came a long string of wins that spiralled Fender to track stardom. A 14-year veteran, Fender achieved all his track experience and fame while in the Army. Ten of these years were served as an enlisted man. Prior to his latest assignment, Fender was with the 82d Airobrn Division's 3d Brigade. Sports Notes NEW YORK (AP) -- Penn State, unbeaten in 23 straight games, is being pressed by Dartmouth for the lead in bal loting for the Lambert Trophy, symbolic of eastern football su- screaming Mets' fans. premacy. The Nittany Lions drew 79V4 points Monday, while Dartmouth received 08V4 points. the seaton or what his pitching doing normal things" on the record was. "As long as he's a Met--an Amazinj Met--that's all thai seems to count." "Even though Tom won i5 games," Scott continued "the agencies tell you he didn'l win the pennant alone. They say there were a lot of guys just as important who came in for one inning to pitch and they, point to guys like Kranepool and Boswell who don't play, every day. "They tell me they can't single out any guys and they don'l think the average 'fans throughout the country can--so they've been buying groups of Mets because what they really want to say is that they've got the Amazinj Mets." Scott, who has handled Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Sandy Koufax,: Frank Robinson, Car; Yastriemski -after their biggest seasons, estimates that the Mets could, as a group, make as much as $250,000 if they go on to seat the Baltimore Orioles. .·Among those Orioles, as the teams took the field for the 1 j.m., EOT, start of the game may be tangling with the phe- Seaver nomenon--and the mystique--of ally by NBC was Frank Robinson--who has become somewhat of a focal point for what seems D be developing into an intense rivalry. Limping as Monday on a sore left iruised severely when he worked out he slammed a foul on the foot during batting practice Sunday, itobinson's physical condition remained somewhat of a ques tion as the third game began. Robinson did not collect a hit in seven at-bats during the first two "games and also failed to make a hit with New York fans y demeaning the attitude of the rfayers on the Met bench during he weekend split in which the Moles won the opener 4-1 and the Mets the second game 2-1. Citing the Mets' bench as 'looking lifeless" and.question- ng their enthusiasm, the veteran Baltimore outfielder has Irawn the reply from Mets' ilanager Gil Hodges that his ildyers "are normal people bench. But it has been suggested by some people that Robinson also the Mets, a team with few headline stars that has seemed to produce far beyond its capabili- lies on paper.' "I can't say what he's looking for," said Met catcher Jerry Grote. "But if he's watching us --he's worried about us." ·Whether that was the case or not, a different atmosphere prevailed at Shea Stadium than in Baltimore's Memorial Stadium as the Mets sent Gary Gentry, 13-12, out to.pitch against the Orioles' Jim Palmer, 1G-4. The shift in scene put the Mets back in front of their enthusiastic banner-bearing fans, noticeably absent in the quiet crowds at Baltimore, where the biggest stir was created by four Met wives carrying a "Let's Go Mets" banner through the stands. The shift from a left-hander to a right-hander by the Orioles which was being telecast nation- sent the Mets back to their lefty-swinging line-up with Ed Kranepool at first, Ken Boswell at second, Wayne Garrett at third and Art Shamsky in right field. Sitting down were Donn leg Clendenon, Al Weis, Ed Charles and Ron Swoboda. The quartet had a composite batting average of .308 in the first two games and all were vital to the second game triumph, Clendenon with a homer, Weis with the game-winning hit, Charles with i single and a double and Swo- Doda with two good catches., The weatherman predicted a 30 per cent chance of rain during the day with a high temperature in the 70s. Weather permitting, the fourth and fifth games also are scheduled for New York, Wednesday and Thursday. If additional games are necessary in the best-of-seven series, they are scheduled for Baltimore Saturday and Sunday after an off-day for travel Friday. New York Met Fans Won't Bug the Orioles: Weaver By CORDON BEARD Associated Prtss Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Manager Earl Weaver of the Baltimore Orioles is more concerned about he screaming fast ball of New York pitchers than he is about Bad Guys from Baltimore in the third game of the World Series. "I don't think any amount of yelling is going to bother our The chant, "Let's go Mets," is expected to reverberate through Shea Stadiium today as the Amazin' Mets play host to the Martin Says He Did Job That Was Expected of Him By PAT THOMPSON Associated Pn*s Sports Writer MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL (AP) -- Billy Martin acknowledges he stepped on some toes to get his job done. And by doing so, he knows it led partly to his dismissal Monday as manager of the Minnesota Twins despite leading them to the West Division title of the American League in his rookie season. Calvin Griffith, Twins president, announced in New York that he had fired Martin for defying front office "policy and guidelines." Martin's reply from Minnesota was simple. "I did the job at my end. That's all I was asked to do.' Five players reportedly went to Griffith, Martin said, and complained they did not like the way the club was being managed. "Every manager -- as I stated in spring training -- is liked and disliked by his players," said Martin, the 41-year-old former New York Yankee infielder. "Every manager has a job to do -- to.make the team win. Sometimes you step on toes to get the job done. "There were competitors who did the job and some who will tie competitors in the future," Martin said. "They will appreciate it 10 years from now. But I was very proud of all of my players. "Some players are always interested only in having a good year themselves and don't care about the team," Martin said. "In order td have a winning team you must have self-sacrifice. Then your players have good years too." Griffith, who faces widespread jublic criticism because of Marlin's vast popularity with the fans, said in his statement: "Prior to hiring him, realizing »s eiplosive personality and his nexperience as a manager. I lad numerous meetings with lini to set policy and guidelines. " feel he has completely ignored mr understandings." Martin said Griffith informed him of the decision by telephone, starting the conversation, "I'm afraid I've got bad news for you." Griffith said his decision, which he called the hardest he ever had to make about a manager, was not influenced by Minnesota's three straight defeats in the American League playoffs to Baltimore nor by Martin's fist fight with pitcher Dave Boswell. Boswell, who was punched out by Martin after the pitcher had struck outfielder Bob Allison, was 12-9 before the fight outside a Detroit bar Aug. 6. He finished at 20-12. Martin's baseball career spans 23 years as a player, scout, coach and'manager. His major league playing days mostly were with the New York Yankees, and he appeared in the World Series five times, including 1953 when his 12 hits led batters. Martin has been in the Twins organization since 1961. His; future plans are cloudy. Griffith knows what he has to do next, hire his fourth manager in four years. Top candidates reportedly include Hank Bauer, ousted Oakland manager; Dave Bristol, fired Cincinnati manager; Billy Hunter, a coach with Jie Baltimore Orioles, and Bill Rigney, former manager of the California Angels. guys said. one little bit," "They're pros, Weaver and the only thing that might bother them is New York pitching--not the fans. "I wouldn't even care'if the. fans threw things at us, if the New York .pitcher didn't have anything and gave up 15 runs or so." Visiting players haven't been bombarded from the stands at Shea Stadium, but some overzealous rowdies swiped patches of turf, bases and even home plate during the celebrations following New York's division and pennant clinchers. "I understand there are gremlins hanging around this park," Weaver said Monday as the Orioles conducted a workout at Shea Stadium on an off-day following a 1-1 split in Baltimore. What if the 'partisan New York fans try to make off with the Baltimore manager as part of their postgame loot? "If no one stops them," Weaver said, "I guess I'd have to go where they take me." During Monday's workout, several youngsters jumped out of the stands and entered the dugout to chat with Weaver and shake his hand. 'Good luck, Earl," one of them said as someone came to chase the unauthorized visitors. "Thank you, boys," Weaver said. "Here come the police." Baltimore is favored for the third straight time in the Series, but that's the kind of odds the Mets have been battling all sea- on. "We love them because they are challengers who came from behind to beat the odds with a combination of skill, spirit and daring," New York Mayor John V. Lindsay said. "They've united us, brought us together and given us all something to cheer about." ASAKA -- New empty can crushers will be used here soon. EVERYDAY TENSION? SLEEPLESS NIGHTS?
