Summer," the work of a sporlswriler and a poet, a man who experienced the golden days of baseball, as an aspiring player, as a young reporter covering the Brooklyn Dodgers in the magic '50s, whose boyhood dream of being the scribe of that team of Reese and Robinson, Labine and Erskine, Cox and Roe -- came true in Ebbcts Field and Vero Beach.

The Present Brooklyn was a giant fan, I joined the underground of Dodger fans. It was the sign of an ineluc'lably romantic flaw. "Dem Bums" were always in the second division. Their games were comic if not ab- the capacity of professional players, the Dodgers committed if. 'Certain Something' But even then, before Durocher and Reese brought victory, before Robinson and Black and Snider transformed Ihe Bums, they had something. Kahn knew' it long before he was assigned by the Herald Tribune lo cover the team. : 'Baseball writers develop a great attachment for the Brooklyn club if long exposed,", said Stanley Woodward of the trans- pontine madness. "This was so in the days of Uncle Wilbevt Robinson and it is so now. We : ountl il advisable to shift Brooklyn writers frequently.

A c c o r d i n g l o G a r y Novinger, vice president of the LI, National Division, some persons working Ihe registration thought a hoy had to ue nine years of age by August I of Ihis year before he could play. "But this is not so. A participant must be al leasl but not more than 13 years by Ihe same date," Novinger said. "We wish to apologize for the misunderstanding." Novinger asked that any child turned away ' lasl Saturday lo come lo this Saturday's registration and Ihe mistakes would be corrected. Registration will be from 9 Heath. noon at je something but the. book is much more -- an autobiogra- ihy, a Plutarch's lives of baseball, and most importantly an account of the laler reality. For he has gone from those boys of summer in Brooklyn, to the men of aulumn and winter they became. And because of this, his book is toughened and deepened beyond nostalgia and sentiment. It is an evocation of game and life, of celebrity and A presentation on the goals cf the program will he given Only a .decade had passed be-! f n | recreation fees will be col- tween the summer of Dodger Jecleu - obscurity, of youth and age.

And Kahn began lo consider the "Dodgers lot as baseball players but as baseball-playing m e n . . . n o t 10 years had passed, but already the boys of summer were Sponsored by the Greeley Recreation Division, the program is for the boys 7-12 years old in the area. The boys will be divided info age groups a n d play in neighborhood parks through the summer months. The program consists of the Rookie League for boys 7-8, the Minor League for boys 9-10, and the Major League for boys 11-12. No league standings nor team records are kepi, since Ihe program is based on the concept that competition al this age level should be limited. The only records kepi arc the scores of the teams playing the game and the amount of time each boy has played in Ihe game. Boys are taught Ihe fundamentals of several positions and are allowed lo play sev- i f , eral positions d u r i n,"g the !. games. The main objective is for boys madness seems lo baseball writers, no mailer how sensible they oul- wardly seem. You must walch a Brooklyn writer for symptoms and, before (hey become virulent shift him io the Yankees or lo tennis or golf." If I have given (he impression that this book simply contrasts past and present, is gentle wjlh the game and charitable wilh those involved, Ihen I have failed to evoke il. It is tough and will make some high in baseball unhappy. It does not spare (he fans, the Greek chorus of Ihis conlinuing drama. Behind sentiment there is toughness. Tells the Story Occasionally, the magic overwhelms. Perhaps Kahn is less than fair in represesling the image of the dying Herald Tribune, in a brief visit years after he had left, perhaps his prejudice against Walter O'Malley, his conlempt for Los Angeles, shows against the memory of games in Brooklyn.
