"Yankee Stadium is beau- tiful," said Manager Billy Martin. "It's great to be back. We had to break the stadium in right." While the renovation was under way, the Yankees shared Shea Stadium with the New York Mets for two years, but they were second-class citizens there, said shortstop Fred Stanley. "It seemed like they were waiting for us to screw up. The clubhouse was cramped and you couldn't put things where you wanted.

"It was depressing," admitted Thompson, whose financially troubled team has fallen far short in an effort to sell 8,000 season tickets for next season. Among those now without Jobs were General Manager Sid Abel and his assistant, Baz Bastien. Abel is on vacation, while Bastien is touring with the team in Japan. Since the Scouts are unable to repay the loan to the NHL, the league is in a position to force them into receivership and sell to the highest bidder. But Clarence Campbell, president of the NHL, said no meeting has been scheduled to discuss the situation. "We are in no position than Ed Thompson to find a potential operator," Campbell said in a telephone interview. "If a local buyer cannot be found, then we are probably in a better position to develop ownership by moving the club, but currently that is not fact. "At present, we have no indication from the Kansas City management whether they have anyone waiting in the wings. It seems certain the team will be offered for sale." Thompson, meanwhile, said he was willing to listen to offers and would welcome a proposal by the Kansas City Kings of the National Basketball Association, who share Kemper Arena with the NHL team. and Noel with 14.

Thursday's throng was all pro- Yankee, except for those folks wearing powder blue visiting uniforms and living in the Minnesota dugout. The paid crowd of 52,613 was the largest for the proud old ballpark on opening day in 30 years. While the Yanks were unveiling their redone park, two other American League games were played. The California Angels downed the Kansas City Royals 5-1 and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 8-4. For 2'i innings the Yankees appeared in awe of their new surroundings. Rudy May's first four pitches were balls, Dan Ford hit the next one well over 400 feet for a two-run homer and then a pig wandered onto the field. May hit a batter and walked three, the Yankees committed two errors, the Twins stole a base in each of the first three innings and suddenly it was 4-0 and the Yanks were probably thinking of signing 85-year-old Bob Shawkey, winner of the first game ever played in the stadium, who threw out the ceremonial first ball. But at 3:44 p.m. there was an explosion, something akin to the old 5 o'clock lightning. A walk, Gamble's triple and singles by Willie Randolph and pinch hitters Lou Pinlella and Otto Velec, along with a stolen base and a wild pitch, and the Yankees led 54. Relievers Dick Tidrow and Sparky Lyle protected the slender edge until the bottom of the eighth - just a little after 5 o'clock — when six more runs poured across. Gamble contributed a run-scoring double and Mickey Rivers and Chris Chambliss added two-run sin- Angels 5, Royals I California's Nolan Ryan, a loser in his first start despite yielding only one hit in seven innings, shackled Kansas City on four hits and nine strikeouts. "It's the same old Ryan," observed Kansas City's John Mayberry. "That man throws harder than anybody I've ever seen in a baseball park." White Sox 8, Red Sox 4 Buddy Bradford keyed Chicago's 13-hit attack with four hits, including a homer and two doubles. He also drove in three runs and scored three. Brian Downing also homered for the White Sox, while reliever Clay Carroll, the winning pitcher for Cincinnati in last year's seventh World Series game, blanked the Red Sox on three hits over the last four innings. powers Mets By BERT ROSENTHAL AP Sports Writer Dave "King Kong" Kingman hasn't leaped over any tall buildings yet, but he has learned to hit baseballs over them.

"I don't think I'd like it because I'm too home-run conscious here," said Kingman, who • also is nicknamed Sky King. • Kingman sent his first homer /rocketing-out of Wrigley Field • Wednesday, a drive that report• edly traveled more than 600 feet. Thursday, he drilled a two-run homer over the left centerfield wall in the second inning off Bill Bonham. Then, with the Mets trailing 8-7 in the ninth, he followed singles by John Milner and Del Unser with a tremendous smash over the left field wall off Tom Dettore, the same pitcher he had victimized Wednesday. "He (Dettore) had given me an inside fast ball the previous day and he came back with the same pitch," said the Mets' muscle man. "Yes, I was surprised because I was looking for something else. I just couldn't let it go by."

(AP) — The "Green Machine" is on the move again. The wheels came off last week in the Masters but Hubert Green — dubbed "the Green Machine" by his fellow pros when he reeled off an unlikely string of three consecutive victories — had it back in gear again Thursday in the first round of the $225,000 Tournament of Champions. But it wasn't easy. And it wasn't pleasant. The skinny guy, easily the outstanding player in the game this year, was almost knocked off his feet by the blustery winds, was drenched and dripping from the fine, driving rain and finished with hands so cold he'd lost his putting touch on the final hole. "That was work," Hubert said after his three-under-par 69 had lifted him two strokes clear in the elite, winners-only field. "Playing out there today was not enjoyable. "I'd been trying to hit the ball Softball league organizes The Neosho Teledyne Softball League held an organizational meeting Wednesday with six teams in the AAA league and seven in the AA league. Tom Higdon said there are still openings for two teams in AAA and ona in AA, and any team interested in joining the league should contact him at 451-1040 by 5 p.m. Monday. Play will begin the first week in May. Higdon also said there will be a work session at 5 p.m. Monday at the Teledyne softball park and urged all players to help fix up the ball field for play. higher, going into the Masters. You have to hit the ball high there. I went back to hitting it low here. With the wind, I think that helped me quite a bit." It was a particular help over the last three holes on the 6,855- yard La Costa Country Club course. They're always among the toughest on the tour and, with the weather the worst the touring golf pros have seen all season, turned into mortal terrors. Green played them one over par and was delighted with the performance. So would most of the others in the elite field of 22 men who have won regular tour titles over the last 12 months. Johnny Miller, for example, played those holes with scores of five-seven-five, four over par. Veteran Don January had a share of the lead until he played them bogey-bogey-bogey. Ben Crenshaw, the youthful runner- up in the Masters last week, was one shot out of the lead before playing the last three two over par. Big J.C. Snead had to use a wood club for his third shot on the 560-yard 17th. In addition to Green, only the 46-year-old January, defending champion Al Geiberger and Australian Bruce Crampton could break par. Those three were at 71, two shots back of Hubert. The group at par 72 was made up of Crenshaw, Snead, British Open champ Tom Watson, Billy Casper and Hale IT win. Ray Floyd, the run-away winner of the Masters, had a letdown and was dead last in the field at 78. Jack Nicklaus declined to compete. Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player didn't win in the United States in the last year and so were not eligible.

By BOB GREENE AP Sports Writer Detroit Pistons Coach Herb Brown knows the score: "There's no tomorrow for either of us now." The Pistons, despite Milwaukee's torrid 63 per cent shooting from the field, defeated the Bucks 126-123 to knot up their best-of-three National Basketball Association qualifying round at one game each. "Now the pressure is on both of us," Brown said after Thursday night's victory. In the other NBA qualifying game, Buffalo defeated Philadelphia 95-89 to take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three series. In the best-of-seven quarter-finals, Cleveland downed Washington 80-79 to even their series at 1-1 and Phoenix stopped Seattle 116111. Bob Lanier's 35 points, including 17 in the third period, and George Trapp's hot final quarter paced the Pistons to victory. Trapp scored 11 of his 13 points in the last 12 minutes while Milwaukee got 33 points from Brian Winters and 29 from Bob Dandridge. But it was the Bucks' team shooting that dazzled the victorious Pistons. , "They were uncanny shooting the ball," said Lanier. "I hope they don't shoot that well again." Free throws by Detroit, particularly in the closing minutes, killed the Bucks' chances of pulling it out. There were 63 fouls called in the game — 25 in the final quarter. "This was a strange game," said Bucks' Coach Larry Costello. "The fouls determined the game. There were some fouls in key situations... It's tough to lose on free throws. I'd rather they didn't call anything." The series returns to Milwaukee Sunday for the deciding game. Braves 95, 76ers 89 Buffalo's Bob McAdoo scored 36 points and grabbed 21 rebounds to lead the Braves over Philadelphia. Not noted for their defense, the Braves, one of the NBA's highest scoring teams, blanked Philadelphia's hot- shooting Fred Carter from the field and held George McGinnis to only one field goal in the final quarter. Carter wound up with 28 points and McGinnis 20. The Braves, who lost the regular season series to Philadelphia 4-3, return to Buffalo with a chance to win the series tonight. Cavaliers 80. Bullets 79 Cleveland edged Washington with a 22 foot jumper with two seconds left. The victory evened the best-of-seven quarter-finals at 1-1 with the series resuming Saturday in Cleveland. Smith paced the Cavs with 17 points, while Dick Snyder added 16, including 10 in the third period when Cleveland came from a 45-32 deficit late in the second period to tie the score at 57-57 with 3:52 left in the third quarter. Washington was paced by Phil Chenier's 19 points, 16 by Dave Bing and 15 by Len Robinson. Suns 116. Sonlcs 111 Five free throws in the final 19, seconds lifted Phoenix over Seattle and evened their best-oi- seven series at one game each. Garfield Heard sank two free throws and Dick Van Arsdale three as the Suns' victory overshadowed a 45-point performance by Sonics guard Fred Brown, who was ejected from the; game in the final seconds. Tommy Burleson added 33 points for Seattle while Adams, a rookie, led the Suns with 23 points, Paul Westphal added 22 and Heard 20.
