Idaho Free Press CaWweH News-Tribune, Tuesy, July U, 1967-7 National All-Stars Hold Power Edge SPORTS Pitching Rated Factor IN THE RUNNING By Alan Mover SPORT PARADE Bauer, Alston Have Problems By MILTON R1CHMAN ANAHEIM, Calif. Misery loves company, so naturally Hank Bauer and Walt Alston ace getting along beautifully. Bauer's Baltimore Orioles, the world champs, you should excuse the expression, are a spectacular 'seventh in the American League, nine games behind Alston's Los Angeles Dodgers, the defending National League titlist, are in eighth place, 15 games back. This made for some immediate common understanding when the two All-Star managers spotted each other for the first time here. "Hi'ya, Walt," Bauer greeted the man lie beat four straight last fall. "How are things?" "You don't have to ask, do you?" Alston answered. "I know what you mean. How many one run ball games you lose so far?" "I've stopped counting. I lost one Sunday, you'd never believe, 1-0 In Winnings." "Yeah, 1 know what you mean. I've lost 19 one run ball games so far. Nineteen! Can you beat that?" Alston listenedsympathetical- "1 got i stiff neck," he said. "Looking to the bullpen all the time?" Bauer kidded him. "No," replied Alston. "Watch- Ing the ball fly out ot the park." The Dodger manager wasn't trying to be funny. He really had a stiff neck, but it was a minor thing compared to the troubles Bauer has been having. Not physically.' Professionally. ''Everywhere I go, 1 get the same thing," moaned the put your finger on with us. Sometimes it's weak hitting and other times it's slow defense." Bauer couldn't put his finger on it, either. "1 wouldn't even know where to begin," he said. "We've got Robinson out with double vision now . . . Palmer's on the disabled list . . . Watt is one- and-lour . . . Miller is one-and- eight , . . shall 1 keep going?" It hurt even to listen. "1 don't think I'm out of it yet even though we are nine back," said Bauer. "It I can put together a hot streak I think I can gel back in it again. Look at what happened in our league a month ago. The Angels were wiy down, and they were ready to get rid of Rig and now look at 'em. They've won 25 and lost only 8 or whatever it is." Bauer pursed his lips so that his mouth became a tight line. He was thinking. Thinking, it turned out, of something Casey Stengel once told him with the Yankees. "As the old man said, when you don't play well you lose ball games," said Bauer, as if he was discovering America. For all his troubles though, the crewcut Baltimore pilot showed ample patience with all the questions put to him. "Every city 1 go Into they ask me the same question," he repeated. "What happened? What happened?" "At least," someone tried comloiting him, "they don't ask you what you're gonna do about Mike Epstein anymore." "Yeah," Bauer brightened momentarily, "but I still get a few letters." ·. Alston gets mail, too. Muchof it contains suggestions, like why don't the Dodgers go out and ANAHEIM, Calif. (UPI)Juan Marichal and Dean Chance, two of baseball's premier pitchers, were the starters in today's All-Star game, but the big hitters on both sides were expected to apply the finishing touches. Anaheim Stadium, home of the California Angels, was the scene of the 38th Ail-Star game and the compact ballpark is known in the American League as a hitter's paradise. Ths National Leaguers for the mosl part were getting their first Uok at the stadium, and as might he expected loved the layout with its power alleys to right ana 'eft center fields. The Natknals were rated 1310 favorites la score their fifth victory in a row, but American League Manager Hank Bauer announced defiantly he was here to win. And if the game should somehow settle down to a pitching duel as it did last year, a well-vested American League mound staff could have the edge. A sellout crowd of 46,000 was indicated for the game, the first All-star contest to be hosted in this city. The game gets under way at 4:15 p.m., PDT (7:15 p.m., EDT). It was to be carriednationally on television and radio. A bright sun and temperatures in the high 10s were in prospecl with the late starting time expected to cause some difficulties devenslvely on the right side of Ih field because of the tricky slanting rays of the sun at thai lime of day. There was no doubt in National League Manager Walt Alston's mind that Marichal, righthanded ace of the San Francisco Giants, rated the siarting assignment since Sandy Koufax of his own Dodgers had retired. Marichal, 12-7, pitched last Saturday and scored an 8-4 win over the Dodgers. Cyance ^iSj.^ne . ol five the Nationals' staff which also included rookie Tom Seaver of the Mets, Chris Short of the Phils, Bob Gibson of the Cardinals, Mike Cuelto ot the Astros and Don Drysdale and Claude Osteen of the Dodgers. The hitting edge appeared to be with the Nationals led by Orlando Cepeda of the Cards, Hank Aaron of the Braves, Roberto Clemenle of the Pirates a.-.; v'os Tarre of the Braves, Two of the game's brightest stars, Willie Mays of the Giants and Mickey Mantle of the Yankees, were not in the starting lineup although both were added as supplemental choices by Alston andBauer. Two of the American League's top hifters-AI Kaline of the Tigers and Frank Robinson of the Orioles--failed to make the All-Star contest because of injuries. Kallne's spot was taken by Tony Ollva of the Twins and Robinson's by Tony Conf- gliaro of the Red Sox. That left Rod Carew of the Twins and Carl Yastrzemski of the Red Sox as the only 300 hitters in the American League lineup.

Sports Action Inc. (SAC), organizers oi the tournament, had planned to announce the completion of the eight-man field for the tournament Monday by signing former heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson and Jerry Quarry for a quarterfinal bout on Oct. 28. Quarry, however, refused to come to terms. Aileen Eaton of Los Angeles and Don Chargin of Oakland, Calif., are both trying to sign Quarry, and the 22-year- old California^ apparently is holding out for more money. Mrs. Eaton or Chargin will stage the bout in conjunction wllh SAC ii Quarry comes to terms. He is expected to sign this week. Then, Patterson, who fought Quarry to a 10-rbund draw last month, failed to show up because his private plane ran he arrived in a car. Karl Mildenberger, the No. 1 contender for the vacant title who will meet Oscar Bonavena in Frankfurt, Germany, on Aug. 5, made (he meeting on time, but he and his manager Wolfgang Mueller, were served with summonses by a marshal. The summonses alleged that Mildenberger had a prior commitment to meetQuarry. Both Mueller and Mildenberger, who speaks little English and oidn't really understand what the $100,000 damage suit was all about, shrugged off the interruption, and an official of SAC called it "ridiculous." Ernie Terrell of Chicago and Phlladelphian Leotis Martin, two other participants in the tourney, also attended the conference along with WBA President Bob Evans of Louisville, who gave his nodding approval to the proceedings as the tournament plans were outlined by Mike Malitz, pres- Ident of SAC. Terrell will meet Thad American Leaguers who had not worked,. since Friday. An ex- Angel, Chance is 11-7 and was eager to prove to the Anaheim folks that they lost something worthwhile when he was traded to Minnesota last winter. Jim McGlothlin of the Angels more than likely would follow Chance because he comes from the host club and is a crowd favorite. Others rested and available include* Jim Hunter of the Athletics, Gary Peters of the White Sox and Al Downing of the Yankees. Steve Hargan of Cleveland and Joe Horlen of the While Sox completed the AL staff. ,, Ferguson Jenkins of the Cubs ^f was the best rested pitcher on Lentztold United Presslnterna. tlonal today. "We have offered to furnish an airplane to bring Ryun to Minneapolis on the morning of the trials in the 1,500 meter run," Lentz said, "and then fly him home right after the race. "Then we have offered to fly him to Winnipeg' on the morning of his race, and fly him right home again. All we are asking is 48 hours out of his life, and we have never made such a concession to anybody else before." Ryun has become the key man in the campaign of the Olympic Committee to obtain the test athletes in the United States for the Pan American Games. "Why won't our kids compete for their country?" Lenlzasked. "We should not be down-grading the Pan Ameican Games." Lentz said Canada was "very concerned" about the failure ol commme d to compete Greene.

Player, the muscular South African who is a frequent house guest of Nicklaus in the United States, fired a 68, the best practice round on Monday, while Bern an, a rookie pro from Bethesda, Md., who is sharing a house, with Sicklaus here, had a 72, the lowest score of the eight Americans entered. Nicklaus shot a 14, two over par. Yet Nicklaus, who has been virtually conceded the title even before play in the 72-tiole tournament gets underway Wednesday, was more concerned with other matters. "My problems are basically management," said the husky' blond from Columbus, Ohio. "I've got to map out each hole for all conditions, including the expected big winds, and I've got a lot of work to do yet." Nicklaus, the reigning U.S. Open Champion and an 114 · favorite, has already played 72 holes over the barren, 6,995- yard, par-12 Royal Liverpool Club layout hard by the Irish Sea but his intense preparation hasn't changed his pessimistic outlook. "It's going to take a lot of watching," he c o m m e n t e d . "There are four holes out there that can crucify you--the ninth through the 12th--and then there's that big finish to face." Nicklaus, who has been paired with Englishman Guy Wolstea Holme for the first round, played Monday in a foursome with Beman, Bert Yancey of Philadelphia and amateur Joe Carr ot Ireland.
