He built a clay court and stadium with 7,000 temporary seats on the grounds of a junior high school in suburban Shaker Heights. Every day was a sellout. He raised his $60,000 guarantee to the USLTA and $60,000 television contract, and the temporary seats .were replaced by 6,100 permanent seats. He promoted inter-zone matches in 1961 and 1962 and Wightman Cup matches in 1963 and 1966. For the past six years, when the USLTA came-up with problems, it went to Malaga. Now he has the problems officially. New York's impressive gela- way, a product of Mel Stottlemyre's brilliant two-hit pitching and a 14-hit attack, was marred by the loss of Mantle, whose debut as a first bseman was cut short when he aggravated a spring training injury during the Yankees' seven-run, third- inning explosion. * * * Mantle left the game with a pulled hamstring muscle in his left leg after scoring from first base on Joe Pepitone's triple in the third. He originally had pulled the muscle sliding into second base in a March 22 exhibition against Boston. "We'll just have to wait and see how it comes around," Houk said. "We don't know how serious it is right now." While Stottlemyre, a 20-game loser for the loth-place Yanks last year, was throttling the Senators before a D.C. Stadium crowd of 44.382 that included President Johnson, the Cincinnati Reds got the jump in the National League with a 6-1 vie- tory over Los Angeles' 1966 NL champs. Vada Pinson, Deron Johnson and Dick Simpson homered for the Reds in the traditional Cincinnati opener while right-hand- er Jim Maloney hurled seven strong innings before retiring with a tight pitching shoulder. * * * At Washington, the President added a new twist to pre-game ceremonies by tossing eut the UA, Baylor Tit WACO, Tex, (AP) — The University of Arkansas and Baylor tied a Southwest Conference golf match, 3-3, here Monday.
