Speaking at the induction ceremony Wednesday for the Boston Red Sox new Hall of Fame, Williams said that watching baseball these days has convinced him that todays player is better. Tve- never seen greater physiques or more natural talent Ive never seen greater talent than Ive been seeing, said Williams.' Guys diving 40 feet to make catches, jumping higher than the fences, pitchers Im glad I dont have to look at some of these guys. I think someday theres going to be a hitter so good hell wipe Out all the records, he said. The Red Sox inducted 11 ex-players at the ceremony and honored Roger Clemens 20 strike-out game as die teams memorable moment. Ted Williams drew the biggest applause when he walked onto thp stage with the help of a cane and thanked, the Red Sox fans for all their support Williams, who is recovering from two strokes, said he was humbled when people called him the greatest hitter of all time. To be honest, I want to shrink (when I hear that), Williams said. I would never in my wildest dreams from my heart say I was better than this guy or that guy. I can think of 20 guys if Im in there company I would feel fulfilled. Also inducted was Jean Yawkey the teams late owner. Red Sox players in the National Hall of Fame who were automatically inducted were Williams, Carl Y as-trzemski, Bobby Doerr and Joe Cronin. Babe Ruth, who started his career as a Red Sox pitcher before his infamous sale to the New York Yankees, was also inducted.

However, Heldenbergh contends the penalty took place outside the penalty box, which would have in- stead resulted in a direct l(ick. j The kid wem'down outside penalty box, but the ref said it happened on the inside. So instead of us getting ready to defend against a direct kick, he gets the free kick and scores, said Heldenbergh. Two minutes later Maroney struck again, scoring what proved to be the game- winner. The senior split a pair of NASC defenders, pulling off a close shot that sneaked by Neuger. Scoring opportunities continued to escape the Mohawks, who dominated play in the Judges end. Brandeis goalkeeper Kris Oliver was forced to make 1 1 stops, while numerous Mohawk shots ricocheted off the post and crossbar. We dominated most of the game, concurred McHale. What can you say, Im shocked we didnt catch the breaks. With 23 minutes remaining frustrations got the best of Caruso who drew a red card, leaving the game and the Mohawks to play a man down.

We got more pumped when Phil got .tberd ard and played a -man down, said MacDonald. We really never gave up. Heldenbergh nearly struck gold again. On the return trip down the field following the goal, the striker booted a shot from just inside the 18 that had Oliver coming out to make what proved to be the save of the game. With it possibly being my last game I played the hardest I could, said Heldenbergh, and I know I had to leave it all on the field. All the se--niors, McHale, CJ (Jedrziewski), Tim (Leland) and (Chris) Archam-bault definitely played like it was their last game. Mike Christy added the insurance for Brandeis with just under 10 minutes remaining, quelling any further., intentions of a Mohawk comeback. Its disappointing.

So we were saying hey, youve got to run against everybody, everybody out there is going to matter today." Being home on their own course settled any nerves the Mounties may have felt. "Fran (Spina), Naomi (LaCasse) and Beth (ODonnell) went out really fast and we were just told to run our . own races, start out how we always do and pick it up from there," Beau-dreau said. "We knew wed be'a lot stronger." "It was a; hard course today," Wentwortfiaid. "It was wet and slippery. But you know all the little places where to step its nice because its not really intimidating its easier to concentrate on whats important when youre at your home course." Trio (Continued from Page 12) - I was a little bit tired today, admitted Beattie. Towards the end I got them (Jangrow and Zustra), but they were in a pace where they looked pretty comfortable.

"Defensively we did a great job and Beth Copanas had a (treat game, Melendy said. "If there was any weakness at all, I think we could have been more dangerous in front of the goal. Everywhere else on the field we did what we wanted to do." Walsh, Thompson, Aileen Keenan, Amanda Silva, Comeau and Keller all had near-misses throughout regulation and the overtimes. hi the first sudden death period, Silver fired a shot of the post In the first overtime, Keenan charged the goal with a shot that Hick saved. Silver charged along the end line with the rebound and her shot went off Hick and trickled through the goalmouth before being cleared. "We definitley dominated, we just couldnt finish," Copanas said. "Once it gets down to a shootout, - its a lot of luck. In some ways, its hard to end the game that way both teams battling it out the whole time and it coming, down to chance." The girls also defeated Taconic (21-40), Wahconah (23-36) and Lenox (21-40) to finish the regular season at 13-1.
