4E July 6,1975- Flanagan Sparks Cross Lanes Win MITCH'S MARINA · " " " Instant Replay For Umps ? Frank Robinson, the new manager of the Cleveland Indians, predicts that major league umpires will someday work with a television screen and instant replay equipment to call close plays, especially those which decide games. And there has been a suggestion that maybe one of these days electronic devices will be used to call pitches to batters although there are some who feel that it would take a lot of the fun out of baseball if the umpires couldn't be heckled at times . . . Robinson, incidentally, feels that the umpiring system should be patterned after the system used for handling player contracts. That is, the umps could be brought up to the majors on trial and if they fail to measure up, they would be returned to the minors. Sounds like a good idea. And it is our guess that there would be a steady flow of traffic between the minors and the majors if this was the rule . . . Nolan Ryan, the great California pitcher, apparently throws a ball harder than any baseball pitcher who ever lived. The speed of his pitch was clocked at something like 100.8 miles per hour when they put the meter on him some time ago. Bob Feller's best speed was timed at 98.6 when he was at his peak as a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians. But Feller, here last week, pointed out that they demanded that he throw strikes when his pitches were clocked. Such was not the case with Ryan. "The name of the game is getting the ball over Robinson Ryan Tim Flanagan rapped a pair of singles and drove in two runs Saturday, leading Cross Lanes to a 10-2 Big League verdict over Sissonville. Steve Gillispie pitched a four-hit, 3-1 FOP victory over Nitro. ~Se*tor Babe Ruth FJlis Reed hurled a two-hitter to spark Mason Construction to an 11-inning 3-2 win over St. Albans Warden's in the first game of a Senior Babe Ruth doubleheader.

"I'd be interested to know what kind of speed Ryan would have if he were timed only on pitches that could be called strikes." Feller said his speed now would be about 60 mph. "And I'd have to go up to home plate and pick up my arm if I threw that hard," he laughed: .. * * From The Mail Bag: About Jack Gocke, the former Clarksburg Victory and West Virginia U. basketball hero, who is now president of the WVU Alumni Assn., Bessie B. Scott of Glenville writes: "I am a frequent reader of your column. When you spoke of , Jack Gocke yesterday (June 26), · you could have mentioned the name of his coach, Farley Bell, my brother, who was at Victory High from 1931 to 1939." Gocke, it will be recalled, was one of the late Coach Bell's top athletes back in the 30s when he coached at Victory. Mrs. Scott wrote further: "Sorry to take your time. Women almost 84 are apt to be garrulous." But not really, Bessie, whose sister was the late Roxie Henderson, widow of the famous Cam Henderson... Another note concerning Gocke came from Bob Altizer of Clarksburg: "All of us here at the Bridgeport Country Club appreciated the comments you made in your column concerning our golfing buddy, Jack Gocke. Jack really is an outstanding guy. I thought you would be interested to know that Jack is leaving Tuesday for the Cleveland Clinic to undergo surgery relative to a heart attack that occurred during the last month. We are all quite concerned but believe his otherwise good physical condition will enable him to rejoin his golfing buddies soon."

Seaver Selected Pitcher of Month · SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Tom Seaver's June record shows he is back to his Cy Young Award winning form, and the National League has recognized it by naming the New York Mets' right-hander as pitcher of the month. In 512-3 innings of work in June, Seaver had a 4-0 record, a 1.04 earned-run average and 49 strikeouts. For this, the baseball writers who travel with the clubs voted him a landslide winner over Pittsburgh's Jerry Reuss. After winning Cy Young Awards in 1969 and 1973, Seaver faltered to an 11-11 record last season. This year he is 11-4 and his 1.83 ERA tops the NL. Tennis, Inc.
