Odds against him Sonny Banks fighfing PHILADELPHIA (UPI) — Heavyweight bo.\er Lucian (Sonny) Banks is fighting the most important battle of his career. This one is for keeps. His life is at stake. The odds are against him. Banks, a 24-year-old, 270- pounder from Detroit, is flat on his back at Presbyterian Hospital. His condition is grave despite surgery which removed a blood clot from his brain. A kayo right to the temple put Banks on crisis road Monday night at the arena. Only seconds earlier, Banks had .•staggered his opponent, Leotis Marlin of Philadelphia, with a vicious right in the ninth round i of a tough, bruising fight. The 182-pound llartin hammered home and Banks sank to the canvas, striking his head. Banks, who once had Cassius Clay on the floor, was counted out at 2:59, only one second fi-om the end of the round and only five from the end of the bout. Taken to the dressing room • on a slrelcher, he appeared to regain consciousness and answered several questions rationally. He asked for a drink of water but before he could sip ' from a glass, he lapsed back . into unconsciousness. At the hospital they said Banks suffered "brain stem damage and a sub-dural hema­ toma." The brain stem is located at the skull cavity near the back of the neck. The hemato­ ma was a blood clot which 90-minute emergency operation Tuesday. A hospital spokesman said chances of recovery are slim. Among those praying for Banks is Martin, also 24. Martin, owner of a 15-1 pro record, visited the hospital after spending a "restless night." Near tears, he stood silently for a while at the bedside of his motionless former rival. "I've been praying all day for Banks," Martin said, noting that "It could have been me." Banks, who became a boxer six years ago almost by accident, was making his first ring appearance in 10 months when in Boston' may help fight LEWISTON, Maine (UPI) The Cassius Clay-Sonny Listen heavyweight brawl should be a big success—it's been banned in Boston. And just about everything branded with the "banned in Boston" stigma is a huge success elsewhere. Residents of Maine still haven't noticed any of that "stench" which Dist. Atty. Garrett H. Byrne of Boston's Suffolk County said surrounded the tight. In fact. Gov. John H. Reed, who has acted as a foster parent to the match ever since it was turned out of Massachusetts, By United Press International A new life began at 40 for Yogi Berra today. Yogi was one of those players who were cut Tuesday by the major league teams at they pnmed their rosters to reach the legal limit of 25 players. Berra announced bis retirement as a player Tuesday night. Yogi, who did not play last year when he managed the Yankees, signed as a coach with ihe Mets and was activated as a player less than two weeks ago. But he decided last Saturday his playing days were over and so advised club President George Weiss. The Mets asked waivers on Berra, a technicality necessary to remove him from the list of active players. He will stay on as a coach. The Mels sent pitcher Carlton Willey to Buffalo of the In- Lernational League outright. The Washington Senators asked waivers on Roy Sievcrs. The Nats also sent pitcher Nick Willhite to Spokane of the Pacific Coast League and returned pitcher Dallas Green to Philadelphia. Green had been with llie Senators on a conditional basis. Cleveland optioned pitcher Stan Williams to Seattle and rookie outfielder Richie Schein- blum to Salinas of the Californ-j ia League. The St. Louis Caixiinals sent The Minnesota Twins optioned second baseman Cesar Tovar to Denver of the Pacific Coast League and fu-st baseman Dick Reese to Charlotte of the Southern League. The Baltimore Oriles optioned tv.'o righthanded pitchers, Herm Starrette and Ken Rowe, to Rochester on 24-hour recall. The Pittsburgh Pirates put re- Uef pitcher Ehroy Face on the disabled list for 30 days. Face, who tore a ligament in his right knee, is 1-1 in si.x appearances this season. The Detroit Tigers sent first baseman Bill Roman, catcher Jolm Sullivan and pitcher Julio Navarro to Rochester. The Boston Red Sox sent veteran catcher Russ Ni.xon to Toronto. The Philadelphia Phillies sent pitcher Morrie Stevens catcher Pat Corales to Arkansas on 24-hour recall and released By United Press International Identifying Dave Giusti is simple. Just mention Bob Gibson, tlte only o-ther major leaguer who has something in common with the chunky 25-year-old bonus baby of the Houston Astros. Giusti was the first big bonus baby signed by Houston, and up until this season that was his only claim to fame. Gibson is a World Series hero and a winner of 77 major league games. Tuesday niglit they became the first big league hurlers to win six games this season, and neither has suffered a loss. Giusti four-hit tlie Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 and the St. Louis Cardinals rallied to help Gibson whip the New York Mets 4-3. Rounding out the National League action, Cincmnati toppled Philadelphia 9-1, Pittsburgh edged Milwauke 4-3 and San Francisco blanked Chicago 3-0. A 'k Action In the American League, New York defeated Boston 5-3, Baltimore shaded Cleveland 3-2 in 11 innings, Detroit topped Washington 7-6 and Minnesota beat Los Angeles 3-2. Cliicago and Kansas City were not scheduled. Giusti, who won his first two games in consecutive relief roles before gaining a starting job, spun his second four-hitter of the season and blanked the National League leading Dodgers without a hit over the final six innings. His only trouble came in the second when he gave up tlu-ee of the liits, including John Kennedy's run- scoring infield hit. UtiUty man Joe Gaines walloped a two-run homer in the second inning off loser Claude Osteen (3-3) for all the Astro runs. Gibson trailed 3-0 to the mets before the Cardinals rallied for three in the seventh — two on Lou Brock's home run off loser Warren Spahn. The Cardmals scored the winning tally in the eighth when Dick Groat tripled and scored on an infield out by Tim McCarver. Gibson allowed 10 liits and fanned nine. Ron Hunt, tlie Mets' All-Star second baseman, suffered a shoulder separation in a fifth- inning collision with base-runner Phil Gagliano and was scheduled to be operated on Wednesday. He was placed on the disabled list and the Mets acquired second baseman CO to replace him. Hunt wiU be lost for at least two montlis. Ron Herbel shutout the Cubs on five hits with help from reliever Frank Linzy. who got the final out after Billy Williams and Ron Santo had slammed back-to-back singles after two were out in the ninth. Linzy fanned Ernie Banks. Willie Mays drove in a run and rapped out a double and two singles and Willie McCovey doubled and singled and scored two runs for the Giants. Larry Jackson was the loser. The Cincinnati Reds erupted or six hits and six runs in the eighth inning against four pitchers to rout Philadelphia. Frank Robinson homered for tlie Reds and Pete Rose added a double and three singles to the Cincinnati attack. Chris Short was the loser. Del Crandall's two-run single and three innmgs of relief work by Al McBean carried the Pirates to victory. The Braves scored once in tlie ninth and had the bases loaded with one out when McBean got Eddie Mathews to ground into a game-ending double play. Don Cardwell was the winning pitcher and Wade Blasingame took Chuck Hiller from San Francis-!the loss.
