Tiger Owners Have Gold To Build a Club By WHITNEY MARTIN NEW YORK Wi-Wc ran across (wo of the eight owners of the Detroit Tigers, over the weekend. Pieces of cigjil, you might · say, ss these gents obviously were loaded (with gold, with gold). They were unmarked, despite all the rumors we have heard of battling in the crows' nest of the Detroit club, and we were assured that harmony is, and has been, rife in the snug little groap. "All we want is lo bring a pennant to Detroit," said Fred Woolworth, a reformed Yankee fan who at the ripe old age of 25 finds himself with a fractional interest in a major league club. "That's right, none of as need a quick buck," said his father-in- law, George Coleman, a banker and cattleman of Miami, Okla., which is practically a suburb of Mickey Mantle's home town of Commerce. Or maybe it's the other way around. Woolworth, a tall, slim young fellow with a pleasant face, has a farm in Maine to which he corn- males weekends after toiling in .New York. · · ' . "We both have our own planes," he explained. "In fact, I have two." He wondered a little how a man · living in Maine and another ia Oklahoma happened lo be mixed up in a bah" qlub living in Detroit. "Well," lhe affable Coleman said a little hazily, "it's just a case of a group gelling together with one idea--to bay a ball cfab. Kenyon Brown is from Texas, Joe Thomas from New York, Paul O'Brien from Washington, Harvey Hansen from Detroit, and Bing Crosby, from H o l l y w o o d , of course." "George js quite a golfer," Coleman's son-in-law said, "he's one of Ben Hogan's best friends." George beamed modestly. We wondered just how these affluent fans went about parchas- ing the.dab they got together. "By bidding," Woolworth explained, and, as if lo show lhe sole object was to have something to build to .a contender, and not to tarn over for, a fast dollar, he added: "You should have seen us when we found oat our bid had won. We were jast like a banch of Mickey Threat lito .1 Mark »y THE ASSOCIATED 1'BESS AMERICAS' LEAGUE BATTING (150 at baU) - Mamie.

Hamia Weeps After Loss to Bassey PARIS 1/H -- Hogan Bassey, new world featherweight boxing champion of the world, had a frait jaice and champagne celebration in one -^of Paris' fanciest hotels week Tuesday with the Premiers of his native Nigeria -- the country he left live ;ears ago to avoid fislic unemployment. ·Bassey gave away IV, pounds lo the former champion, tipping in at 124H to Hamia's 125%.

He leads the American League in the first two Icpartments, but is one RBI behind Washington's Roy Sievers, lhe paccseller with 52. In as many games last year. Mantle had a balling average of .376, 27 homers and 65 runs batted in. He finished the season with .353, 52 circuit blows and 130 RBIs. P.ogers Hornsby and Ted Williams are the only big leaguers to have won the triple crown twice. Hornsby captured the Ihree titles with lhe St. Louis Cardinals in 1922 and 1925 and Williams with lhe Boston Red Sox in 1942 and 1947. No one, howevtr, has won it two years in 'succession. A 13-point gain by M a n t l e coupled with a J6-point slump by Williams enabled Mickey to take over sole possession of the batting lead. Each had a .379 mark a ago. In last week's games, Mantle collected 13 hits in 30 times at bat while Williams managed onlj six safeties in 24 tries and his average dipped to .363, Baltimore's Bob Boyd moved into third . place at, .338 followed by Nelson Fox of the Chicago While Sox with .335 and Bill Skowron of (he Yanks, .331. In the National League, Stan Cards displaced Hodges at the batting helm. Masial, a six-time batting champ, lost foar points and showed a .361 slate after Sunday's games. Hodges dropped 19 points to third place at .347 on a 6-for-28 showing. Dee Fondy of Pitlsbargh moved into the rannerup position at .353 before he was sidelined with facial injaries last Wednesday night. The Pirates' first baseman was hit by ball in pro-game prac- much now. If we finish second, maybe third, I wouldn't be surprised. Jack Tighe is doing a good job. "There never has been any dis- cention among the owners, although I know there have been rumors that there has." "I was a Yankee fan since I was so high," Woolworth said, indicating the height of a small elumrj. "Of course I switched to Delroit after we made the deal." "The group doesn't meet very i often," Coleman said, "but we all follow the learn closely. We all i love baseball." in the brnlal final 30 seconds of the match, scheduled for 15 rounds. The end was n bloody sight. Hamia, worn down and left defenseless by Bassey's unending pounding wilh light jabs and hooks to the head, stood helpless along the ropes blood spurting from his moalh. He was out on his feet and* Referee Rene Schemann ended it by leading Hamia lo his corner without even going through the formality of a coant. Bassey started fighting professionally in Nigeria in 1949. He had two fights that year and still rates them as the toaghest he's .ever had. He won once and lost once lo Dick Turpin for the Nigerian ban- lamweighi litle. In 1950 and 1951 he had only six fights. tice. Cincinnati's Frank Robinson climbed from ]0th place lo fourth. He increased his average 20 points to .337 with 15 safeties in 31 at bats. Robinson is followed by Hank Aaron of Milwaukee and Gino Cimoii of Brooldyn in a fifth place deadlock at .327. Aaron maintained his home run lead. He hit one last week, giving him 19 for Uie campaign. The Braves' outfielder is lied with Musial for the runs batted in lead. Both have 54. That was when he decided to I Paris. test his talent in England and shoved off for Liverpool. Since then he has had only three fights outside England.
