Wednesday Evening, June 20,1982. Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune VKteo Baseballs Sprinkled With Vaudeville Piersal Breaks In New Act for Detroit Fans By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer Ever think you'd see Vaude ville come back? And to baseball, of all places! It did Tuesday, and as they say in show business, it was a gasser. Casey Stengel, that fine old trouper, suddenly did a jig at the Polo Grounds, . .Ralph Houk and Billy Hitchcock were set up foi a boxing glove comedy routine in Baltimore . . . and imaginative Jim Piersal broke in a brand new act in Detroit. Casey did his jig. up the clubhouse steps with the public address system playing "Happy Days Are Here Again" after the last - place New York "Mets snapped' a seven - game losing streak with a 6-5 victory over the Milwaukee Braves. The boxing gloves were presented to Houk and Hitchcock by a department store as a reminder of the fist fight the two managers almost got into the last lime the New York Yankees met the Baltimore Orioles. "Keep Punching" There was a message with the gloves to each manager: "Keep punching." Houk and Hitchcock traded only smiles at home plate, but .then the Orioles handed the Yankees Iheir fifth straight loss, 3-1, with Brooks Robinson doing most of the damage. Picrsall put on the liveliest show of all as Frank Lary won his first game since April 13 by pitching the Detroit Tigers to a 5-0 win over the Washington Senators. Jim singled in the sixth inning but was left stranded. Even so, he solemnly rounded the bases and then cut over as Lary walked off the mound. , Suddenly, Piersall feinted as.if (o bowl Lary over' then dodged around the startled Tiger pitcher. Previously, while waiting his turn in (he on-deck circle, the Senator outfielder walked over to the stands and chatted with a woman fan. Piersall swung at one of Lary's pitches and missed with the bases loaded in the seventh, the bat flying out of his hands and landing near the mound. Lary walked over as if to pick it up but left the bat on the ground. The crowd roared as Piersall was forced to go to the mound to retrieve his bat. Cash Paced Tigers That was the kind of 'night it was. On the more serious side, Lary held the Senators to six hits while Norm Cash paced the Tigers' nine - hit attack with his 17th homer. The Minnesota Twins moved within a half game of the American League lead with a 9-4 decision over the Chicago White Sox as the Boston Red Sox were beating the first-place Cleveland Indians, 4-2. The Los Angeles Angels took over third place with a 7-4 win over Kansas City. In the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers increased .their lead to 2'/£ games by defeating the St. Louis Cardinals, ,1-2. The Houston Colts subdued the San Francisco Giants, 6-4, the Cincinnati Reds edged the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-1, and the Chicago Cubs clipped the Philadelphia Phillies, 9-5.

Rambling At Random We hadn't seen Naf in quite some time when he strolled into the office this week sporting a tan that proved he had spent most of his time during the early summer on the golf course. Mr. Nagol looked around at the vacant seat and inquired, "Where's that witch doctor that brews what you people in the Fourth Estate laughingly call coffee?" "If you're referring to Gleason Kistler," we answreed, "he's on vacation for a couple of weeks." "Well, then," Nat replied, "how bout a cup? drink."

AFL Meeting May Turn Into Wholesale Trading Market By ED FITE UPI Sports Writer DALLAS, Tex. ('UPI) — The 'athering of coaches and general managers of the American Foot- jail League at .Buffalo June 28- W may turn into a, trade mart, a survey of the.various clubs indicated today. : They actually will have, lilfle else to do since the league's owners will have threshed out matters of policy, expansion, rules chan- jes, etc., the previous three days. in the league's usual summer sessions in Boston. The coaches and front office josses set their own meetings in Buffalo to coincide with that week end's college All .'Star, football game sponsored by the American. Football Coaches' '. Association. They •will get an early line 1 on some oi the prize rookies they have drafted.' . : . '. Although there has been an in- crease in trading between AFL teams this off-season—19 trades to date compared with six a year /ago—most A:FL ; officials believe the big,move is yet to come. "There will be a lot of trades made,'' 1 says Dick Gallagher, general manager of the Buffalo Bills! "I think everybody has been -waiting for this; meeting." - , Sid Gillman of the 'San Diego Chargers disagrees. "There will:'be trades, but/they won't be big ones," says Gillman. "Clubs just aren't giving up top players. Those that offer one up want too much i in return. Most coaclies seem to be seeking offensive linemen, particularly guards ' and ; tackles. . Jim Otto, Oakland's-two - time AH-iLeague center, is'one of 'the most sought-after pla'yers;iri trade talk. Virtually every team in the league has tried to -acquire' him; some offering four or more play- ers in return. Another popular figure is Denver defensive tackle Bud McFadin, for whom San Diego reportedly offered six players a year ago. The champion Houston Oil- ers, according to one source, would give up four or five good players for MeFadin. COMING THIS SATURDAY The Logan Bowlmors ! GRAND OPENING Watch Friday's Paper for The Full Details I "How come my name wasn't in the paper the other day," Naf asked, "I broke a 100 for the first time and figured you'd have a big story on it." "Gee whiz! Golly! Gosh!," was the only thing we could manage to sputter. "You must have cheated." "Thanks a lot," said Naf, "The big thing in my life and you've gotta be sarcastic." He then proceeded to give us a strokc-by-strofcc replay while we pretended to listen. * * » Naf related that he had been to Chicago to watch his beloved Cubs play and stated that he thought they'd come out of a slump and could possibly finish as high as sixth place before the season was over. "You dreamer," we said, "they will be lucky to finish ahead of the Mels." "Oh, really," Naf snorted, "I'll have you know ..." and off he went with reason after, reason why the Cubs have a good baseball team but just haven't been getting the breaks. Our only retort .was, "According to you the Cubs haven't had a break since 1945." "That's right," said Naf. We dropped the subject, a u « He then offered one bit of criti cism toward the Cubs ball park. Wrigley Field. "It used to be one of the prettiest in the majors, but thcy'va let it get nut down. Paint's clu'pping, rails are rusting, the drainage system is rundown and it just isn't anywhere as nice as it used to be," Naf related. * » « We asked Naf what he thought of the recently played National Open golf tournament. "Well, I never -thought Nicklaus (Jack) could beat Palmer (Arnold), but he sure deserved it. But I'll take any bets that:the next lime they play hnad-to-head Arnie will win." * * * "They'll be facing each other in thft Western Open in Chicago and tiie British Open the week after," Naf said, "and I'll just bet that Palmer is better in both." We disagreed, "In one, maybe, Naf, but not in both." * » » Naf then related that he'd seen some of the Logansport Country Club golf classic played last week and said he thought the event was a big success. He also passed along the in- ormation he'd gotten from Pro John Carithers at Dykeman Park .hat the local golf association would hold its best ball tournament this Sunday at Dykeman. "I don't know who's playing with who," Naf said, "or who's "avored. I guess they'll announce the pairings at the meeting of the association Saturday night. He then stated, "Why don't you and I play together in the tournament?" We politely declined. * » » Mr. Nagol then got up to leave, looked down at the half empty cup of coffee and said, "When does Kistler get back? Maybe his coffee isn't quite as bad as I thought." DICK WATTS Ridenour to Walkerton WALKERTON-Former Logansport Highi School basketball star Jim Ridciiour will take over here next season as head basketball coach., Ridenoul 1 has been head coach at Boswellfor the past four years where his teams compiled a 55-30 record, induding a 16-5 mark this past season and 184 the year before.
