EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRON WOOD, MICHIGAN TUISDAY, JUNE! 5,1965. Iron wood, Bergland Win Western UP. League Openers Red Devils Romp To 20-1 Victory Over Bessemer The Ironwood Red Devils made a highly successful b i d to remain the team to beat in the Western Upper Pen i n s u la High School Baseball L e a g ue as they made their season debut with a 20-1 victory over the Bessemer Speed Boys in a contest played Monday evening at Monarch Field. The Red Devils captured the season title last summer with a 9-1 record and took the field in Monday's game with a we 11 seasoned staff headed by 10 returning lettermen. The Speed Boys were successful in holding the Ironwoo d nine scoreless in only two innings as Ironwood blasted six runs in the first inning to put the Bessemer squad on the defensive side of the fence. The Bessemer pitching had a hard time finding the strike zone and walked four batters in the first stanza and a double b y McDonald and singles by Tafelski and Fertile accounted for the first inning Ironwood advantage. By the third inning the Red Devils had built up a 13-0 lead, scoring seven runs in the second on three hits and five walks. Bessemer scored its lone tally in the third inning on a single by Betlewski, a wild pitch, and a single by Joki but the scoring threat was soon put down by three strikeouts by the Ironwood Pitcher Koivisto. Bessemer also displayed some pitching talent in the third inning by putting the Red Devils down in order on three strikeouts. The single run in the third was the end of Bessemer's scoring as Ironwood went on to tally four more runs in the fourth on four hits, one of them a homer by Tom Eckstrom, and came back to rack up three more runs in their final time at bat in the sixth. Koivisto was the winning pitcher and he allowed three Bessemer hits, walked two and struck out 17 while Ippolite o f Bessemer allowed six hits and 13 runs in the three innings that he pitched. LeGassa took o v er on the mound for Bessemer in the fourth inning and allowed seven hits and seven runs. Hitting strength of the winning squad came from Eckstrom, who hit the game's only round- tripper, Lahtinen who bang e d out a triple and a single, Koivisto with a double and a single, McD o n a 1 d with a double and Tafelski with a pair of singles. Betlewski pounded out two of the three Bessemer hits, both singles, and Joki tallied the other Speed Boy hit, also a single. Bessemer will see action again this week as it travels to Hurley to take on the Midgets. Both teams will enter Thursday's game with 0-1 records. The game is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Rozelle Prepares NFL Forces For Mighty Battle of Atlanta By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Pete Rozelle is marshaling his National Football League forces for the mighty battle of Atlanta against the American Football League.

Aunt Ella and Chief Lee made up the winning combination. In the twin double Rango, Bronzino, Boy Brigand and Cool Parent combined to pay $1,946.40 on 31 winning tickets. AFL, has about two weeks to get the necessary backing from his 14 team owners to award a franchise to the Southern stronghold. Twelve yes votes will swing it, and the trend definitely is yes. An Associated Press survey showed today that seven NFL clubs are on record as favoring the move into Atlanta in 1966. They are the Baltimore Colts, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. Owners of four other clubs — the New York Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams and Washington Senators — were not ready to commit themselves. And bosses of the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers were not available for comment. There were no hints of a dissenting voice in the poll. Should Rozelle be given the go-ahead, the next step would be to award the franchise — most likely to a syndicate headed by Lindsey Hopkins, an affluent Atlantan, and including Texas oilman John Mecom Jr. and Tony Hulman, who runs the Indianapolis Speedway. Then would come the vital development — choosing a pro football tenant for Atlanta's imposing new $18-million stadium. The AFL gave a franchise to the Cox Broadcasting Corp. of Atlanta last week, apparently under the impression the stadium was set. But after a pitch by Rozelle, the stadium authority announced it would not name a pro football tenant before July 1. That gave Rozelle the time he needs to make a crash survey of the prospects, report to his owners, and take a vote. Insiders feel the vote will be for expansion into Atlanta — and that, given the choice, Atlanta will go for the NFL.

NHL Gets Ready to Welcome 6 New Clubs in Expansion Move By BEN OLAN NEW YORK (AP) — The National Hockey League, which has been accused of dragging its feet while fielding the same six clubs for more than two decades, is getting ready to welcome with open arms six new franchises in a swift expansion maneuver. A special meeting of the NHL's Board of Governors, the circuit's ruling body, has been scheduled for June 24-25 in New York and applications from 12 groups seeking franchises will be processed at that time. "I personally do not think that any new cities will be made public at that time," said NHL President Clarence Campbell. However, it Is believed that at least two among those tapped for the projected new-six division will be revealed. Among the cities most prominently mentioned in an expand- ed NHL are Los Angeles, San Francisco, St. Louis, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Vancouver. Each currently has teams in minor professional leagues. Club owners of the six existing clubs — Montreal, Toronto, Boston, New York, Detroit and Chicago — have been pushing expansion in recent months. In setting up the new six-team division, which most NHL people feel will start operating the season after next, the big league also may be seeking to head off the combined efforts of the leagues. These leagues have minor league designation, but several major league cities. The AHL, which has teams in Baltimore and Pittsburgh among nine, and the WHL, with clubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco among its six, an- pounced last week an interlock ing schedule to start next season.

Actually, Clendenon is reacting to a close pitch. Maloney Has No-Hitter for 10 Innings, Then Loses in llth By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Jim Maloney should stick to one-hitters. At least he wins them. The Cincinnati ace finally pitched a no-hitter Monday night — and lost. Maloney, who has won three one-hitters, blazed through 10 innings of no-hit pitching before losing a two-hitter to the New York Mets, 1-0 on Johnny Lewis' leadoff home run in the llth inning. The 25-year-old right-hander thus joined eight other pitchers who went through nine innings of hitless hurling only to give up at least one hit in overtime and lose. Maloney, who also tied a National League record by striking out 18, allowed only two base- runners before Lewis lofted a Bombers, Red Raiders Win The Red Raiders captured their second win of the season Monday in the Iron Farm Baseball League by downing the Hustlers 4-2 in a contest played at Randa Field. In the second game of the morning's doubleheader the Bombers got on the winning trail with a 7-6 won over the Twins. A three-run third inning wrote the winning ticket for the Red Raiders as they came up with a walk, a single by Usitala and a double by Krause to break open the nip and tuck ball- game. The Hustlers came back in their half of the inning t o tally their two runs on a single by Panich and a home run by Pisco but the comeback attempt was soon put down by Mariani, who was the winning pitcher. Mariani struck out 10, walked one and allowed four hits while Heikkila, the losing hurler, struck out seven batters, issued four walks and allowed two hits. The Bombers banged out seven hits to squeeze by the Twins in the morning's nightcap. The losers started the game's scoring with two runs in the first inning on two walks and a single but the Bombers came back in the last of the first to narrow the tally with two walks and a pair of one- base hits and chalk up a single run. A t h r e e-run second inning gave the losers a slight edge but the Bombers kept in c o n - stant persuit and rallied for a pair of runs to bring the score to 5-3. The Twins went scoreless in the third stanza and a four-run push by the Bombers gave them the lead for the first time in the contest and they managed to hold that lead until the final out. Schmidt and Evanstad w ere the winning pitchers for the Bombers and together they struck out 12, issued 12 bases on balls and allowed th r e e hits. Kirkley suffered the loss as he struck out five, walked 10 and allowed the seven Bomber hits. Htadquarttrt in Onionagon County fort ADMIRAL TELEVISION SPEED QUEEN WASHERS "BUY HERE WHERE QUALITY IS KNOWN!" Plutchak Bros. MASS, MICHIGAN 2-1 pitch against the extension on the center-field wall. Roy McMillan later belted a meaningless single. "The ball Lewis hit was a fast ball," Maloney said dejectedly in the Reds' clubhouse. "I tried to jam him but failed. He hit the same kind of pitch for a homer off me the last time the Mets were here." Lewis, who struck out his first three times at bat, said he wasn't even sure it was a homer until he saw the umpires signaling. Last pitcher to take a no-hitter into extra innings only to lose was Harvey Haddix, who hurled 12 innings of perfect ball for Pittsburgh against Milwaukee in 1959. Last year, Ken Johnson became the only pitcher ever to lose a no-hitter in nine innings when the Reds nipped Houston 1-0 on an error. In other NL games Monday night, St. Louis defeated Pittsburgh 5-2 and Chicago stopped Houston 2-0. In the American League, Cleveland edged New York 5-4 while rain washed out Baltimore at Boston. Maloney, now 5-3, tied Warren Spahn's 1952 record of most strikeouts in an extra-inning NL game. The fastballer walked Ed Kranepool in the second inning and allowed Charlie Smith to reach first in the fourth on a wild pitch third strike. The Reds had a chance to score a run in the fourth inning, but Vada Pinson was cut down at the plate, catcher Chris Cannizzaro to pitcher Frank Lary, trying to score from second on a passed-ball third strike. The Cardinals continued their two-season mastery over the Pirates, beating them for the 17th straight time. St. Louis snapped a 2-2 deadlock with two runs on Carl Warwick's grounder in the fifth. Julian Javier came home when the ball got through shortstop Gene Alley, and Bill White raced across as left fielder Bob Bailey bobbled the ball. Larry Jackson ended a personal five-game losing streak while the Astros lost their seventh in a row. An infield out brought in a Chicago run in the first, and Ernie Banks drove in the other with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly. A two-base throwing error by relief pitcher Pete Mikkelsen paved the way for two unearned runs in the eighth inning that boosted Cleveland past the Yankees. Rocky Colavito singled across the tying run and scored the winning run as Joe Azcue singled.

Dial 932-0900 Vikings Trounce Hurley; Gilmer Murls No-Hitter A near-perfect performance on the mound by Bergland's Bob Oilmer led the way for the Vikings to open their 1965 Western Upper Peninsula High School Baseball season with a 9-1 win over the Hurley Midgets in a contest played Monday evening at Bergland. Gilmer highlighted the entire affair by allowing not a single Hurley hit, striking out 13 and walking four. The battle was all knotted in a scoreless deadlock until the Vikings came up with four runs in the third inning to take a lead that the Midgets could never threaten. The losers tallied their single score in the fifth stanza and the Vikings came back in their half of the same inning to match the Hurley performance and take a 5-1 advantage. The next inning was the Bergland rally that put the finishing touches on the final outcome as the Vikings crossed the plate with four runs and brought the score to 9-1. Stone started the pitching chores for the Hurley nine and allowed five runs on eight hits, issuing six walks and striking out a pair of Vikings. Zell took over for the Midgets in the sixth inning and the Vikings belt e d out four runs and three hits while he walked three and struck out none. Each team committed one error. Hill, P. Fruik, Abrams and Borseth were the big guns at the plate for the Vikings as each of them racked out a pair of hits to lead the Bergland 11- hit attack. The Vikings will be involved in another conference affair on Thursday when they meet the White Pine Warriors on Bergland's home diamond. White Pine will open its season with Thursday's contest and the Vikings will be attempting to stay out of the losing column in the tight race for the top in the league standings, a position that they missed by only one game last season. Hurley too will see action on Thursday as it stays on its home field to meet the Bessemer Speed Boys.

(AP) — Lou Klein said it came as a "pleasant surprise" to be named head coach of the Chicago Cubs Monday, replacing Bob Kennedy. "But it made me feel a little bad," Klein continued, explaining that Kennedy was a friend of his. Cub Vice President John Holland made the announcement. Monday at a news conference before a night game between Chicago and Houston in the Astrodome. Klein's debut was successful as Chicago won 2-0. "I knew about it two days ago," Kennedy told The Houston Post. He said he would return to Chicago today to take up a front office job as an aide to Holland, who is also Cub general manager. Klein said the ailing Cubs' biggest problem is pitching. Chicago was in ninth 'place in the National League at the time of Holland's announcement, 12 games out of first place. The Cubs had won only six of their last 22 games. Kennedy had been head coach for 2 1-3 years. In that time, the Cubs won 182 game sand lost 198.

The Tigers and all major league clubs have six months in which to sign the players they drafted. After that, they lose their rights to the unsigned players and their names are returned to the draft lists. "This being the first time this has ever been done, I would guess that if we signed 30 of the players we would be doing real well," Lund said. "But that's just a guess and a figure pulled out of the air. I'd really have to watch the system for a while to give a better answer." Lund said his opinion that the draft will be worthwhile if three or four players make the grade is based on past experience. "Under the old system, if we signed 44 boys, we would expect three or four of them to come up through the ranks and help us," Lund pointed out. "I don't mean be stars, but to help our bench or pitching corps," he concluded. The Tigers, who pooled their scouting reports with that of the Cleveland Indians, Milwaukee Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates, had more than 1,300 such reports. They went to the draft meeting with a list of 611 players. "While we did get better scouting coverage on college and other teams, I want ot point out that the boys were scouted through routine procedures," Lund added. He said the fact that the four teams combined on their scouting efforts gave each team many more names than would be turned in under ordinary circumstances. The Tigers' first draft choice, catcher Gene Lament of Kirkland, 111., was the only one selected for the major league team. The other 43 choices will be signed to minor league contracts. "We're not so different from football, really," Lund observed. "All of the pro grid teams select quite a number of players, sign them, try them out and then maybe two or three make the grade. "You hardly ever hear of the others—the ones released after a brief try—and it's a good bet the majority of the players we picked and will sign will never get out of the minors. "But there's the hope that somewhere along the line — maybe that 25th or 38th choice will develop under a minor league training system and hit the big time," Lund concluded. The Tigers, who were idle Monday, open a three - game series against Boston tonight. Mot/eft Named To NL Post CINCINNATI (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies finished in a second-place tie last season, but their manager, G"ene Mauch, has been placed In charge of the National League All-Star team. League President Warren C. Giles announced Mauch's appointment Monday and said the American League manager will be named later this week. The annual game between the All-Stars will be held July 13 at Minneapolis-St. Paul. It has been baseball tradition that the managers of the two pennant-winning clubs will be in charge of the next year's All- Star teams, but both the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees managers left their jobs after the 1964 World Series. Johnny Keane, who led St. Louis to its first world championship since 1946, is now manager of the Yankees. Yogi Berra, who managed the Yankees last year, is a coach with the New York Mets. Three men who managed in the major leagues in 1953 are still managing. They are Casey Stengel, Al Lopez and Charlie Dressen. SOT A SMOKE? NOPE.
