(Photo by Sanders) Orioles Still Have Long Way To Go-Richards Sighs Its So By ED COBRIGAN The Associated Press Manager Paul Richards of the Baltimore Orioles must be mellowing or the depths of seventh place in the American League might have made him pull his belt in a notch. No longer is he breathing fire and brimstone, challenging his opponents to lick him. "We're just about the same as last year," he sighed today before Bending his outfit against the New York Giants in an exhibition game In Phoenix. "We have some good boys, but they're pretty young. We tried to operate too much in a hurry with kids last year," Problem No Secret Richard's main problem is no secret around the circuit. He has adequate pitching built around Jim Wilson, a better-than-average defense with shortstop Willie Miranda as the bulwark but no hitting. Richards js the first to admit he is involved in a long-range building program. He has several youngsters in camp who are highly impressive but obviously a season or two away. The most impressive are John Francona, a 22- year-old first baseman, and Brooks Robinson, an 18-year-old third ba§eman. ' The Orioles' lack of power was evident in Scotlsdale, Ariz., yesterday when they took a 9-5 lacing from the unbeaten Giants. Jim Pisoni, a rookie outfielder, got the Orioles' only big blow, a two-run homer off Jim Hearn. Bums Perk Up The world champion Brooklyn Dodgers, who have looked miserable while Manager Walt Alston has been testing his rookie crop, won their first exhibition, a 5-2 decision over Milwaukee in Miami Roger Craig, Stan Williams and Sandy Koufax held the Braves to two hits. The New York Yankees' Whitey Ford tossed four scoreless innings while his mates were whipping; the Chicago White Sox 4-2. Sore-arm Curt Simmons held the Pittsburgh Pirates at bay for three innings as the Philadelphia Phillies whipped the Buccos 5-1. Robin Roberts also chipped in with three scoreless frames. The Kansas City A's stopped the Boston Red Sox 7-4 behind effective elbow work by three rookies- Walt Craddock, Bill Herriage and Bill Harrington. Charley Rabe, Tom Acker and Pat Scantlebury. three more freshmen, tamed the St. Louis Cardinals for the Cincinnati Redlegs 2-1. The Cleveland Indians crushed the Chicago Cubs 7-6 with five ruris in the eighth inning.

(AP) — General Manager Hank Greenberg thinks the Cleveland Indians are taking too much tim* to play a baseball game and he is doing something about it. He promised that .the club would* player's fund lor each game the Indians win in two hours or less during the regular season. The promise will hold good on road games as well as those at home. 1 The players' | fund will be ad- pay $100 into minis tered Manager Al pez. It will be used for any pur- s-ii-ss-^pgS may choose. "Maybe this will make them hustle a little bit," Greenberg said in announcing his plan. "Something has to be done to speed up games. They are dragging more and more every year." The average length of the Indians' games last season was 2 hours and 20 minutes. They were involved in only about six games which consumed two hours or less. Greenberg said, he conceived the idea to speed up games after sitting through the Tribe's first three exhibition games. The first two ;ames with the New York Giants lasted 2:55 and 2:42. Yesterday's contest with the Chicago Cubs .was timed at 2:49.
