LEADER-TIMES, KITTANNING, PA.--WEDNESDAY, AUG. 21, 1957 -13- Little League World Series Opens With Big-time Pomp wniilAMSPORT, Pa. (UP) Monterrey, Mexico, and Bridgeport, Conn, square off today in the opening game of the- Little League World Series with all the pomp and ceremony of its major league counterpart. La Mesa, Calif., and Escanaba, Mich., originally were to have opened the small fry big event but colds ·among some of the Californians forced their first round game to be put off until Thursday. .The consolation game between the first round losers, originally scheduled for Thursday, will be played as a preliminary to the championship, game afternoon. on Friday Everything about the Little League is done in "big league style" except for the siM of the diamond which is scaled down to fit the little fellows. The league it restricted to boys eight to 12 years old, and no earn it allowed to have more han five boys of 12, and each team must have at least three boys 10 or under. The teams,'which are spread across the nation and number about 4,000, are sponsored by industrial firms, civic organizations and service clubs. No admissions are charged for Little League games and managers are unpaid volunteers. Kayo Hoped For Lightweight Champ Regards Foe Highly CHICAGO --«Fi-- Lightweight champion Joe Brown rates his TV opponent tonight, Joey Lopes, as a tough boy, but he thought today he might ring up the 28th knockout of his career. "I won't have to look for him," Brown said. "He'll be there. So if I can nail him, I'll knock him out.;' Brown, who has won 65 battles, lost 14 and drawn, 8, will not risk his title in the 10-round bout, since it is an overweight match. He expected to weigh about 137 and Lopes, 29, expected to weigh 135V:. "They tell me Lopes has never been knocked out," Brown 'said, "and I know he's a good rough tough fighter. But he's a club fighter. When I fought (Orlando) Zulueta, he'd never been knocked off his feet, so tonight I'm going to try to establish another first and finish Lopes." 'Slow Motion' Delivery Credited For No-hitter CHICAGO (UP)--Bob Keegan of the Chicago White Sox said today that a new "slow motion" windup helped him hurl the season's first no-hitter. The 36-year-old right - hander, once considered washed up because of arm trouble, tried out his new delivery Tuesday night for the-first time as he blanked the Washington Senators,. 6-0, walking two -batters and striking out only one. In demonstrating his new windup, Keegan said it is similar to a golfer taking a~ slower back- swing. "In other words, instead of pulling my arm back in a hurry in the preliminary motion, I do it slowly," he said. Keegan said this gives him more control and helps to keep him from tiring. Keegan said he was "confident" that his n«w style was working by the. fourth inning. "I could tell then that the Senators didn't have any aits in them," he said. Keegan said that when he faced Pete Runnels, lead-off batter in the eighth, he was "sure" of a no-hitter. "My new windup took the batters by surprise. I'm sure the Senators weren't prepared for it/ he said. Keegan said he served up mostly fast balk "as always" and gave a lot of credit to catcher Sherm Lollar for calling the shots. Grid Players Open Drills Overstate HARRISBURG. (UP) -shape of things to come today was reflected fh the images of 50,000 Pennsylvania boys working out on sun-baked gridirons in the first practice sessions for the onrushing schoolboy football season. Although the first games are not slated until Sept. 13--almost a week later than usual, regulations of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association permit training sessions to begin this The week.

Sugar Ray Calls Off Rich Fight NEW YORK (UP)--Sugar Ray Robinson formally called off next month's minion-dollar fight with Carmen Basilio today, but he left a loophole for it to go oa again. Robinson said his formal withdrawal from the Yankee Stadium fight Sept. 23 was mailed today to the New York State Athletic Commission: but, nevertheless, he would fight if promoter Jim Norris came to terms Quickly in their dispute over theater-television. "Meanwhile, my attorney, Martin Machat, will start legal proceedings against Norris and his International Boxing Club f o r breach of contract," the middleweight champion said. Basilio Continues Training Admittedly surprised, Norris stated, "The fight's still on as far as we're concerned, and there'll be no change in the theater-television arrangements." Equally confident that the fight would be staged, welterweight champion Basilio continued training at Alexandria Bay, N.Y., for his attempt to wrest the middleweight crown from Robinson. Basilio commented, however, "if Robinson runs out on this fight, I'll know he's afraid of me. He looked petrified at the signing, anyway." The dispute is about who shall handle the theater-TV. Norris has signed a contract with Theater Network Television, Inc., the closed - circuit organization that presented 15 previous D3C fights, starting in June, 1951. Robinson insists that the Tele- prompter Corp., which handles much industrial and convention closed - circuit work, be given the fight because it had guaranteed a minimum of 400,000 theater seats, which would translate into about $250,000 for Robinson's end. That's 150,000 more seats than TNT could guarantee, Robinson says. Permission Not Sought Sugar Ray claims that Norris signed the contract with TNT "without my permission," a n d thereby broke the signed agreement that the theater-TV rights would. no be sold "without my writen consen." When Nathan L. Halpern, president of TNT, first made a survey of prospects for the fight, he said he could guarantee 375,000 theater seats, Robinson explained. "But last week we received a letter and formal contract from Norris, stating that Halpern could guarantee only 250,000 seats. We notified Norris that was not accetp- able and that we had an outfit giving a, much better guarnaee." Johnson's Score Softball Victory Over Atlantic Inn FORD CITY-^Jolmson's Sunoco defeated Atlantic City Inn; 5-3 last night at the Fairgrounds in the only Armstrong County Softball League game played. The victory inoved Johnson's from- sixth to fifth place. Forfeit victories were recorded for Kelly Barbers, Mike Lil's and Davis Motors. Fifth Avenue Hotel failed to muster enough players in their game against Kelly Barbers at Skunk Hollow. Bill Whitlinger and Stewart formed the battery for Johnson's Sunoco while B. Brumbaugh and A. Brumbaugh were pitcher and catcher respectively for Atlantic City Inn. Hitting for Johnson's were Blaney and Montgomery, double and single; Prick, 2 singles; Johnson, double; Cable, McKinney, Conway, WhiUinger, single each. The Atlantic City hitters were Smith and Spang, double and single; Febinger and Mechling, double each; Wolverton and Campbell, single each. The summary; R H E Johnson's Sunoco 5 11 4 Atlantic City Inn 3 * 2 Yank Cast-off Hurls No-hit ChisoxWin By MILTON RICHMAN United Press Sports Writer There was a short pause in the pennant races today to welcome Bob Keegan into the no-hit, no-run fraternity and to let the Yankees ponder why they ever allowed him to get away to the Whie Sox. Keegan, a 36 - year - old right- hander, was cut loose by the Yankees five years ago, written off as a chronic sore-arm case who would never make his mark in the majors. But he did it Tuesday night when he pitched the first no- hitter of the season to beat. Wash- ingon, 6-0, in the nightcap of a twi-night doubleheader. The Senators won the opener, 5-4. Keegan walked only two batters in fashioning his no-hitter, the first in regular major league season competition since Sal Maglie of the Dodgers turned in one against the Phillies last Sept 25. The only no- hitter since then was Don Larsen's perfect game against the Dodgers in the World Series last Oct. 8, Eighth Victory The victory was Keegan's eight of the season and it was made possible by a five-run third inning, during which Larry Doby hit a two-run homer. Ed Fitzgerald's eighth inning homer for the Senators broke up a 4-4 tie in the opener. Ralph Terry, another pitcher the Yankees let get away, came back to haunt them Tuesday night when he beat them, 1-0, for Kansas City. The A's collected only two hits off Bob Turley but those hits resulted in the only run of the game when Woody Held doubled in the fifth inning and scored on Tim Thompson's single. The loss was Turley's first lagainstx the Athletics, whom he had defeated 11 times previously during his career. It was also 'Kansas City's second victory overj j the Yanks this season in 18 meet-1 'ings. . j Cleveland beat Boston, 54, andj Detroit licked Baltimore, 5-1, in| the other American L e a g u e ! games. . .j In the National League, first-1 place Milwaukee rallied for two runs in the ninth to defeat Pittsburgh, 3-1; the Cardinals took two games from the Giants, 4-3 and 3-2; Brooklyn swept a pair from Cincinnati, winning the opener, 115, and the 12-inning nightcap. 6-5, while the Cubs' beat the Phillies, 5-2, in the nightcap after dropping the first game, 2-1, in 10 innings. Early Wynn preserved Cleveland's victory when he halted a three-run rally in. the ninth inning by the Red Sox. Gene Woodling's eighth ining homer proved to be the deciding run. Ted Williams went hitless in two official trips to the plate, his batting average dropping to .389. Jim Bunning of the Tigers struck out 10 batters and limited the Orioles to seven hits in notching his 15th victory. Ray Boone gave Bunning all the margin he needed with a two-run homer in the first inning and the Tigers added three more runs in the third off loser Skinny Brown. Southpaw Warren Spahn of the Braves held the Pirates to seven hits in gaining his 15th triumph. With the score tied 1-1, t h e ] Braves pushed over a pair of runs in the ninth on Red Schoendienst's single, Eddie Mathews' triple and] another single by Hank Aaron. Stan .Musial slammed out five hits, including, a homer in each! game, to help the Cards to their} two victories over the Giants. Sam j Jones scattered 10 hits in the open- j er while 18-year-old Van McDaniel! gave up eight hits in the nightcap, j including a homer by Daryl Spencer. Ken Boyer and Eddie Kasko homered for St. Louis in the opener. Duke Snider's 33rd homer of the] season and second of the night in | the 12th inning decided the night-i cap for Brooklyn after the Dodgers j had capitalized on a fine relief job by Ed Roebuck to top the Redlegs in the first game. Roebuck hurled three-hit relief ball for 5 2-3 innings and slammed his. first major league homer to gain his fifth victory in the first game. Reliever Don Drysdale was the winner in the finale. ! Stan Lopata's 10th inning homer j snapped the Cubs' six-game win-; ning. steak as Curt Simmons and Dick Farrell of the Phils .combined to pitch a three-hitter in the first game. Robin Roberts suffered his 17th setback in the nightcap when he was tagged for back-to- back homers by Ernie Banks and Jerry KiiidaU in a three-run fourth inning. Reliever Don Elston was the winning pitcher. Major League Standings By UNITED PRESS American League W. L. Pet. GB New York 77 41 .653 ...
