8D --August 3,1975 Sundav Gazette-Mail Five Charlies On Star Team ASEIVICIOFMT-STOMMC SCOTTi MUFFLERS By A. L. Hardman The Charleston Charlies, host team, will be represented by five of their players as well as their manager in the 20th International League All-Star game at Watt Powell Park here on Monday, Aug. 18. Only the Tidewater fides, which also placed five, will have as many players in uniform that night when the All-Stars clash with the Pittsburgh Pirates, parent club of the Charlies. Of course, the Charlies have already lost two of their appointees to the parent Pittsburgh Pirates, who called up second baseman Willie Randolph and shortstop Craig Reynolds. Both of them will now play against the All-Stars. Other call-ups by parent clubs could also change the makeup of the All-Star roster. But, for the moment at least, the squad will be listed as selected. Rochester will have four players on the 25-man squad announced Aug. 3 by 1. L. President George Sisler. The Richmond Braves will have three and Memphis, Toledo, Syracuse and Pawtucket two each. MUFFLQ/1ULPIPE BQTHFUUY GUARANTEED THE I. L. PLAYERS cast ballots to determine the starting team -- except for the pitcher. They were not permitted to vote for their 'own players. Randolph, the league's top hitter and star second baseman for the Charleston club, got the most votes with 120 out of a possible 154. Tidewater's Mike Vail, an outfielder, was second in the voting with 95 and Rochester's shortstop, Bob Bailor, was third with 88. Others voted places on the team were (with Votes received in parenthesis): IB -- Brooks Pemberton. Tidewater, and Royle Stillman. Rochester (each 56).

Memphis (69), Rich Kreuger, Pawtucket (45), Preston Hanna, Richmond (78), Rick Sawyer, Syracuse (41), Craig Swan, Tidewater (126), and Wayne Simpson, Toledo (110). * * * AFTER THESE 17 players were voted to the team. Manager Joe Altobelli of Rochester, who automatically became the All-Star pilot when his Red Wings won the 19741. L. championship, named the following eight players to round out the squad: Infielder Alvin Moore of Richmond, infielder Terry Hughes of Pawtucket, infielder Taylor Duncan of Rochester, Charleston's Reynolds, outfielder Terry Whitfield of Syracuse, outfielder Bruce Boisclair of Tidewater, catcher Bill Na- harodny of Toledo and catcher Ed Ott of Charleston.

THE FIRST All-Stars vs. Major League Club game was played against Milwaukee in 1956, the Braves winning. Since the Braves they have played four other games, winning three of them. The Yankees have lost twice to the All- Stars, the Orioles have won one and lost one, the Indians have lost two while the Washington Senators, the Dodgers," the Red Sox and the N. Y. Mets have each won one game. The Astros and Reds have each lost one game to the All-Stars.

Ohio (AP) - The Cincinnati Bengals have more nicknames than a Damon Runyon short story. Nicknames seem to be a passion with the National Football League team as much as they are to Charles 0. Finley and his Oakland baseball team. But the Ben- gals come by theirs naturally, unlike the A's. whereof a player doesn't have one, Finley has been known to find one. Currently in Cincinnati, there is the Rattler. Hercules. Mad Dog, Suki, The Express. Boobie. The Mad Punter, Chico and Big Daddy Dirt Pile. The fascination of Bengals nicknames is fed in some part by the army of newsmen covering the team. It is backed up by headline writers. "Nobody goes by their real name around here." said veteran fullback Doug Dressier, known as Chico. "If you don't come down here with a nickname, you get one fast." Dressier., fair and blond, was not tagged with a Latin name because of his appearance.,It was his college T-shirt. Chico State. Calif. Florida A M's "Rattlers" nickname followed defensive back Ken Riley to the team. Muscular l i n e m a n Pat Matson is "Hercules" or "Herkie." thanks to his dedication to weight lifting which also is his off-season occupation. Bob Maddox is "Mad Dog" because of his aggressive manner as a reserve defensive end. The name fits. Last year, he blocked a punt against Detroit and recovered it for a touchdown without missing a step. O f f e n s i v e tackle Vern Holland is "Suki." and halfback Essex Johnson is "The Express." Fullback Charles Clark will not answer to anything but "Boobie." He got his nickname as a toddler and kept it. "If someone calls me Charles. I don't answer." glowered the 250-pound running back. Kicker Dave Green battles the monotony of long trips by carrying on conversations with truckers via his portable citizens band radio. His code name is: "The Mad Punter." Six-foot-five veteran defensive end Ken Johnson showed up for practice once in gaudy, new clothes that clashed. Ever since, he has had to live with "Big Daddy Dirt Pile." "But I wouldn't call him that if I were you." said Dressier. "He doesn't like Jif block. CECIL COURTS C.D."BUCK"TILMAN Hi there! We are Courts Tilman Hurricane's newest Chrysler-Plymouth dealer.
