JOHN HALL Yeah! Yeah! f 1 I George Ringo It had to happen. Well, maybe it didn't, but it has. On top of the other phases of the mania. ve'e now also got a wrestling Beatle. Mania, as described br Webster, is madness . . . inordinate craving, abnormal passion ... a craze. Like, you said it. One might better undtM-stand what Xoah had in mind by driving by the Hollywood Bow! anytime between dusk and " dawn Sunday. - It figures? that wrestling 1 -milHnt lo f-jr 1-iAhinrt The Wrestling Beatle is booked to appear at the Olympic Auditorium Wednesday night, and it's not by coincidence. He's been following the Beatles from town to town. The Beatles sing and be grunts, or maybe visa versa. "The big diWenme between me and those other Bailie? is that I've got a BODY,'' says the u restlcr teith a ttraight jnce. And please get that, lie insists his real iianie is George Rmgo. and he was born in Liverpool. Lherpool. New York, that Is. Even Freddie Blaie. Baron Leone. Count Billy Varga and the late Gorgeous George would be embarrassed. Ringo has been groaning for pay since lfif. He started in Chicago, but in those das he figured the name George Ringo was t sissified. He called himself Bob Sabre. " never hit it tun." he admit. "Ami I derided to gait to piny the guitar and sing. Then, nil of a sadden out cf England came the mop-heads. It opened a whole new career for aie. Peojilr started railing me George ilmgo, the Wrestling Beatle." He swears on a stack of guitars (hot it i ail true. One of those moments in history. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Please pass the aspirin. Morton Another Dean Chance? The Angels may not realize it yet. Inn thev've Rot another young right-handed hurling hope with the Dean Chance trade-mark growing up on the farm at San Jose. His name is Lon .Morton, nephew of Mike Morton, co-manager of No. 1 banty contender Jesus Pi-mentel. Lon has a strong arm that is matched only by his confidence. It seem? all youngsters in the Angel organization are asked to fill out a questionnaire at the start of every reason. One of the questions is what, is your ambition. Every Sun Jose player but Morton put down 'heroine o big lecgiie ballplayer." Morton trrote "Ha1! of Fame" Rocky Bridges, the manager, talks about Morton, among other things, in the current Sinrts Illustrated, and it's nice to see that the rest of ire world is beginning to appreciate our old hero. When Rocky Was an All-Star The former Angel coach and pride of lxng Beach repeated a few of his favorite stories, including the one about the year he was a hitler in the majors. That was in 1958, the strange season Rocky made the All-Star team. "1 ir as hitting M)7 at the break." said Hot kg. "Rut then I checked out a Frank Lary fast ball on my jaw. The trouble with having a wired jaw Is that you never can tell when you're sleepy you can't ynn n " Bridges, whose wit has been sorely missed at Dodger Stadium this season, played 11 years in the majors and coached two more. He may have set the record for uniform changes, jumping back and forth between Brooklyn Cincinnati, Washington, Detroit, Cleveland. St. Ijuis and IiOs Angeles. "I've had more immberx on my bark than a bingo heard. My wife had to write me in care of Ford Fnck. He was the only one who knew where I was. It's a good thing I flayed in Cincinnati for four years it took me that long to learn how to spell it." said Rocky. Confessing he finds life in the California League a little different. Bridges describes the San Jose bus with enthusiasm. "Oar bus is uir conditioned " lit said. "IE yon open a window. Every so often we have to tell the driver to throw another log on the air condition r" The hotels also don't exactly match the Shoreham nd the Sheraton Cadillac. "But they're interesting said Rocky. "In one hotel lobby they have an artificial plant, ft wasn't, always ortificial. It's just been there xince the stone age." Rooky's San Jose club is currently battling it. out with Santa Barbara for fifth in the California League, but the pennant race is secondary to his work with the Mortons and such as Cotton Xash, the Angel-Laker from Kentucky. Berra Shows Signs of Strain Things have obviously changed in the American league. The Yankees have cracked. There's no truth to the rumor Y'ogi Berra is going to ship Phil Linz west so that he can play his harmonica down on the pier at Santa Monica, but when the Pinstripes start grumbling among themselves it's time to officially recognize Chicago and Baltimore. However, an old warning from the Commissioner, Rob Cerv, comes lo mind. "S'ever laugh at the Yankees, even when yon bent them." said Cerv dining the days he wore an Angel uniform. Cerv liked to recall the 1 f if U) season and point out how Baltimore swept a key series with New York and led the league by two gaint.s. as laie as Sept. '. But the Orioles made a sad mistake. They ridiculed the Yankees in the papers and started printing World Series tickets. The Yanks brooded silently. They got the Birds back in Yankee Stadium later that month, took four in a row, and once again won going away. But this, of course, is 1964, and Berra is definitely showing signs of strain. Go ahead and allow yourself st least a little chuckle. Magic Number for Phils Is 34 And speaking of flag races, can I be the first to point out that the magic number for the Phillies is 34? Willie Davis, talking about how he feels when he goes up to the plate in a clutch spot, may have said it best or the Dodgers and the grandstand managers of 196M. " give my best." soli Willie. "But I try to stay loose. 1 say to myself 'it's not your wife and it's not your life.' It's not the end. Outside of Sandy Kou fax it's been a disappointing leason. But Willi is right.
