EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN MONDAY, JUNE 7,1965. 1 Slumping Tigers Open Series at Los Angeles Tonight Detroit Faces Fight to Stay in First Division LOS ANGELES (AP) — The slumping Detroit Tigers landed m the West Coast today facing a fight to stay in the American League's first division Instead of :hailenglng for the leadership. Loss of the full three • game .-.erles with the Cleveland In- .iians put the Tigers on the spot for a three-game series jpening tonight with tli« Los Angeles Angels. Cleveland's 10-1 drubbing of the Tigers Sunday at Cleveland dropped fifth-place Detroit to lust a game and a half above :he sixth-place Angels. Before the Cleveland series, the Tigers had been riding in third place within gunshot of the leadership. Young Joe Sparma was a kayo victim in Sunday's defeat —from the heat as well as Indian bats. * * * Sparma, first of four Detroit pitchers, had to quit after four innings from a heat-Induced dizzy spell. The game was played In muggy 88-degree weather. Sparma left the ball park to visit a hospital where he said the doctors told him he had suffered a heat stroke. He returned later looking and feeling fit. The Indians, with Rocky Colavito getting two blows and batting in two runs, got 11 hits while Jack Kralick, a twirler from Wyandotte, Mich., and Gary Bell held the Tigers to five. One of Detroit's hits was AL batting leader Willie Horton's llth home run which saved the Tigers from a shutout In the leventh inning. Four singles off Sparm and an error and sacrifice fly gave the Indians four runs in the fourth for Cleveland to win going away. Sparma was overcome afterwards. "It really scared me," he said. "I didn't know what was happening." After collecting two runs off Fred Gladding in the seventh, the Indians mopped up on Phil Regan for five runs in the eighth on five hits and two walks. One Tresh of Yankees Fail in Try For 4 Homers in Single Game By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer * Tom Tresh of the New York Yankees came to the plate in the eighth inning, looking for his fourth homer of the game, and of the hits Max Alvis. was a homer by Kansas Nips MSU In CCC Classic MILWAUKEE (AP) — John Lawson's record of 8:54.3 in the two-mile run powered Kansas ahead of Michigan State and the Jawhawks went on to win the 40th annual Central Collegiate Conference Track Meet here Saturday night. Lawson was named the outstanding performer of the meet. The Jayhawks and Spartans were battling for the team lead and through 12 events the score was knotted 29-29. Kansas notched seven points in the two-mile run, the 13th event, and went ahead to stay. Kansas had firsts in the discus, javelin. two-mile and triple jump. Five conference records were set on a relatively slow track. Kansas scored 50 points to 34 for Michigan State.

Notre Dame won the title the ast two years. Michigan State's 440-relay earn of Clinton Jones, Jim ummers, Eugene Washington nd Daswell Campbell captured irst place in that event, with Western Michigan finishing ourth. MSU's Washington won the 20-yard high hurdles over eammate Jones, who was sec- nd. Campbell was fifth in the 00-yard dash and Tom Herbert was fifth in the shot-put. Wayne State's Bill Colson was ifth in the 440-yard hurdles and Western Michigan's Bruce Burson fifth in the mile. Western's Ralph Stephenson was second in the 880, Paul Seeley fourth in the pole vault, Dennis Holland fifth in the triple jump and Western's team ifth in the mile relay.

Guerrant, Walker Are Likely Draft Choices NEW YORK (AP)— Bill Ouer rant, of Western Michigan and Jerry Walker of Michigan State ire listed among collegians likely to be picked in bfejeebaU's Uri'lree agent draft, beginning among half a doz •n, oiMo mentioned by Assocl atjed Press snorts writer Joe Relchtor as being considered by njajor league clubs In pr^draft decided to play a guessing game against Ted Wills. He guessed right. But he knuckled under. So Tresh settled for the three houers, a single in the sixth inning and that eighth - inning pop-up about two feet in back of the catcher off Wills' knuckler. And Tresh admitted he was disappointed despite the fact that he singled and doubled in the first game, putting together six hits in eight at-bats, driving in five runs and scoring six as the Yankees swept a doubleheader from the Chicgo White i Sox 6-1 and 12-0 Sunday. "I was particularly eager to hit that fourth homer because would have made me the first ever to hit two from each side of the plate in one game," said the switch-hitting Tresh. "I had faced Wills earlier and was guessing that he'd open with a knuckler against me in the eighth. "I guessed right and swung with all I had." And the ball sailed — straight up. The second-place White Sox, meanwhile, fell 3V2 games behind the front-running Minnesota Twins, who walloped Washington 11-2 as Jerry Zimmerman hit the first homer of his five-year major league career and also chipped in with wo singles. Elsewhere, Detroit 10-1, Angers blanked Baltimore 3-0 and Boston split a doubleheader with Kansas City, winning 9-4 before losing 4-3 in 11 innings. Tresh backed Al Downing's hree-hitter in the Yankees- iVhite Sox nightcap by homering ight-handed against southpaw uan Pizarro in the first inning and connecting from the left ide against right-hander Bruce Howard in the third and fifth. "he three homers brought Tresh's season total to nine. In the opener, Whitey Ford checked Chicago on four hits, ncluding a homer by Ron Hanen, before giving way to reliev- T Hal Reniff in the eighth inning. Minnesota's Zimmerman, filing in for injured catcher Ear Battey ; ripped a 400-foot, two- run homer in the fourth inning, jutting the Twins on top 5-0.

Quite literally. Dodgers Unveil New Weapon in Splitting 2 Games With Braves Cleveland crushed the Los Angeles By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer National League catchers, beware! The next time you throw out Maury Wills trying to steal, Jim Gilliam may hit a home run. The Los Angeles Dodgers unveiled that new weapon in maintaining their three-game National League lead over Milwaukee in a doubleheader with the Braves Sunday. The Dodgers won the opener 4-0 before losing 6-4. Wills, straight victory bursts in the eighth. Jack Kralick with three-run seventh and and reliever Gary Bell held Detroit to five hits and Cleveland pulled away "rom the Tigers with five runs n the eighth inning, two on Max Alvis's seventh homer. Both iCralick ,and Detroit starter Joe Sparma tired in humid, 83-degree weather and Sparm was treated for heat exhaustion. Left-hander Rudy May shut out Baltimore on five hits and ;he Angels gave him all the help he needed in the first inning, scoring a walk, a catcher's interference call, an error by Ori oles pitcher Jim Palmer and an infield out. The Red Sox broke a 2-2 tie In the seventh inning of the opener at Kansas City on Felix Mantilla's run-scoring double and pulled out of reach with six runs in the eighth. Dalton Jones drove in three Boston runs with a home run and single. Mike Hershberger's llth - inning single scored Nelson Mathews, breaking up the nightcap and snapping the Athletics' seven-game losing streak. holder of the major league base-stealing record, and Gilliam, less than two weeks removed from his coaching Job, worked their play to perfection once in each game. Wills doubled in the third inning of the opener, then was thrown out by Joe Torre attempting to steal third. Gilliam swung at rookie Dick Kelley's next pitch and lofted it into the left-field bleachers for a homer and a 1-0 Los Angeles lead. In the first inning of the second game, Wills led off with a walk but was out trying to steal second, again on a throw from Tone. Denny Lemaster was the Milwaukee pitcher this time, and his next pitch also wound up in the left-field bleachers — another Gilliam homer and another 1-0 Dodger lead. Torre's unerring tosses cut down Wills for only the 10th and llth times in the shortstop's 45 season, first of 1965. equaled his entire 1964 output. Gilliam collected four hits Sunday while scoring three runs and driving in three, rocketing his average to .360. Elsewhere in the NL. Cincinnati blanked San Francisco 6-0, Pittsburgh swept New York 5-3 and 3-0, Philadelphia took two from Chicago 2-1 and 10-9 and Houston bombed St. Louis 10-1. Don Drysdale became the first pitcher in the majors to win 10 games, checking the Braves on six hits in the first game. Drysdale, who has lost three times, also socked the 22nd homer o] his career and second this season. Milwaukee's Gene Oliver drove in three runs with two homers in the nightcap. The Dodgers, incidentally, had to settle for only a run-scoring sin- gle by Gilliam in the seventh nning. Willis preceded the left ielder with a single but didn't ry to steal second. It was after Gilliam's single, hough, that Braves' Manager Bobby Bragan pulled an unusual move' of his own. He brought in Bob Sadowski to pitch and moved pitcher Billy O'Dell to irst base. After Sadowski gave up a run-scoring single to Lou ohnson, O'Dell returned to the mound and retired the side. Sammy Ellis won his ninth game against two defeats, stop- )ing the Giants on five hits. He allowed only two hits after the irst inning. Don Pavelitch sin- led home two runs in the Reds' hree-run third. Bob Veale posted his second straight shutout and drove in wo runs with a single in the 'irates' second-game victory. He limited the Mets to five hits and extended his scoreless-inning string to 24. Roberto Clemente homered in he nightcap against Warren 3pahn after collecting two doubles and a triple in the first fame, knocking in two runs. >Jew York's Jesse Gonder and Johnny Lewis homered off Don iardwell. Johnny Callison belted three attempted steals this Gilliam's homers, his Baseball Draft Begins Tuesday NEW YORK (AP)—Baseball executives huddle tonight to work out final preparations for the sport's first free-agent draft with college and high school ballplayers across the country awaiting the outcome. The draft, modeled after the one used by professional football and basketball, begins Tuesday morning with the Kansas Athletics making the first selection. The New York Mets get second choice with the remaining 18 teams following in reverse order of their 1964 finish. Designed to give weaker teams a better opportunity at signing players, the draft will eventually assign free - agent players to 122 professional clubs in 15 leagues. Each player selected will be placed on a club's negotiation list for six months. If the player still has not signed with the team which selected him after that, his name returns to the pool of names available for the next draft meeting. Current plans call for three such drafts each year, one in the summer for high school players and college players who have completed their sophomore year, another in September for youngsters playing American Legion ball during the summer, and one in January.

Hail to All Wins Belmont, Moves Into Title Race By ORLO ROBERTSON Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Hail To All's neck victory over Preakness winner Tom Rolfe in the $147,900 Belmont Stakes with lightly regarded First Family a closeup third and favored Dapper Dan a beaten fourth, proved one thing. It is going to take a lot more racing to decide the 1965 3-year-old championship. When Mrs. Ben Cohen's son of Hail To Reason struck from behind last Saturday at Aqueduct under the lash of comeback jockey Johnny Sellers' whip he definitely moved into the title picture. But it nowhere assured him of the coveted title won by Northern Dancer last year and left him sharing Triple Crown honors with Tom Rolfe and Lucky Debonair, winner of the Kentucky Derby. All last year, Hail To All kept knocking at the door in the big ones. It was the same through his first eight races this year. Only in two starts as a 2-year- old and in the Kentucky Derby this year, in" which he finished fifth, was he out of the money. Then last Monday trainer Eddie Yowell placed blinkers on the colt for the first time and he won the Jersey Derby. Sellers, not a howling success since riding to fame aboard Carry Back four years ago and taken off the colt in the Kentucky Derby, timed his stretch run just right. Hail To All was timed in 2:28 2-5 for the 11/2 miles. The stake record of 2:26 3-5 was set by Gallant Man in 1957, when the race was run at Belmont Park. Getting back to the title situation here's how it looks: Hail To All — Won the Jersey Derby and Belmont Stakes. Next major start probably will be in the $100,000 Hollywood Derby at Hollywood Park in mid-July. Lucky Debonair — Won the Santa Anita and Kentucky derbies. Now sidelined with injuries suffered in the Preakness. Tom Rolfe — Winner of the Preakness, third in the Kentucky Derby and runner-up in the Belmont. Will be given a rest and then pointed for rich races at Arlington Park. Native Charger — A disappointment in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness after winning the Flamingo and the Florida Hannu, Leitza Beagles Cop Top Honors in Derby Here Sunday Hounds owned by Eugene Hannu of Ironwood and Domenic Leitza of Hurley copped top honors in the Gogebic Range Beagle Club's annual spring derby Sunday at the club's running grounds six miles north of Ironwood. Only 10 dogs, representing the lowest entry in the event in a number of years, competed i n the derby. Rain held down the number of spectators, but scenting conditions were reported by club officials to be "quite good." Hannu's Spring Creek P a tsy Expansion Seen In Pro Football OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — "Pro football is like air travel," said Joe Foss. "There are still a lot of people who haven't experienced it." Foss, commissioner of the League, the AFL American drew the Football analogy as began a two-day meeting that was expected to result in a two- stage expansion plan that will again give pro football's ever- changing face another going two, and possibly four over. With teams, to be named by the AFL and the rival National League looking toward expansion in the 1967 season, it was expected that new areas would be seeing pro football for the first time while some cities got their initial look at both leagues. Foss set the stage for AFL expansion when he said last week, "It is our hope to add two teams for 1966 and two more in the next couple of years, probably by 1968. We are looking for the big cities, those that can take two teams but where only one team now exists.' Speculation revolved around three cities without pro football franchises — Atlanta, New Orleans and Miami — and five cities where the NFL has the sole entries — Philadelphia Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Detroit. ook first place in the 13-i n c S combined class and Leltza's Spotty II was the winner 1 n the 15-inch division. Both men also had other dog* that placed in the trial. Houndl owned by Leitza came in second n both classes, with Leitza's Babe being second in the 13- nch class and Leitza's Pat the runnerup in the 15-inch competition. Butch's Big Lucky, owned by Hannu, placed fifth (next best qualified) in the 15-inch class. The Hannu and Leitza houndi were the only two dogs entered in the 13-inch class. There were eight entries ill the 15-inch class with Stel- mark's Hillcrest Mike, owned by Joe Stelmark of Bessemer, placing third and John's Skipper VII, owned by John Milakna of Ironwood, finishing fourth. Hounds placing in the derby here are eligible to compete against the winners from the other five clubs of the Northern Michigan Hare Association in the Upper Peninsula championship derby next Sunday at Ish- pemmg. Only club members were eligible to run their derby hounds in yesterday's meet and the hounds, in order to qualify, must have been whelped since Jan. l, 1964. Ribbons were awarded to the winners in each class. Judges were Dick Bennetts, Clarence Cabianca, Reuben Grandahl, Joe Fertile and Lawrence Cabianca. The AFL now the NFL 14. has 8 teams Derby.
