Trio of Young Outfielders Prize Dodger Prospects By JOE REICHLEB Associated ptess Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Of the 16 newcombers on the Los Angeles Dodgers' 1959 roster, it is safe to say that a trio of young outfield hopefuls - Ron Fairly, Frank -Howard and Don Miles - are the prize prospects. Especially Fairly, only 20, who seems destined for a long and fruitful career in the National League. At least, that's what Dodger Manager Walt Alston believes, along with other veteran observers who watched the kid perform last year. Alston is high on this left- handed hitter from Macon, Ga. "Ron played 15 games for the Dodgers last season and 1 didn't see him make a single mistake, the Dodger pilot said. "I like everything about him. After hitting .297 at Des Moines of the Western League, and .298 in' 18 games for St. Paul in the American Assn., Fairly finished Pcrnc/io Plans to Dominate for 5 Years MELBOURNE (AP) - Pancho Gonzales says he is good for another five years as king of professional tennis. His most likely successor? He picks sensational Peruvian Alex Olmedo. "I don't see anybody around who I think can beat me," the tall, swarthy Mexican-American said today while enjoying the fruits of a straight set victory over liis chief rival, Lew Hoad. "I may have slowed up half a step and at times my incentive may not be too keen but when I get hungry and want to win a match, I can still do it." Gonzales proved that Tuesday night before a sellout crowd of «,000 at the Olympic Velodrome. Playing fierce, killer tennis he smashed Hoad 8-6, 6-2, 6-3 to go into the Victorian pro final against Australia's Frank Sedgman tonight Hoad had beaten him in their last meeting in Rome four months ago and was favored by those who iiad seen the young, blond Australian crush Tony Trabert in the quarter-finals.
