Nolan will remember Willie McCovey for the one pitch he didn't throw past'the San Francisco first baseman—McCovey .hit it out of the park for a three- run homer to tie .the game, '"which the Giants won 4-3 by scoring in the ninth inning off Bob Lee, who relieved Nolan after the one pitch. "It was a good pitch I made to McCovey," the disconsolate 19-year-old rookie said.

The View from Hen ED HAYES Thanks, Thanks, Thanks! THEY DO APPRECIATE THE PEOPLE WHO COMB out to see their games at Southside Park. The people,,in this case, who come inside the fence and pay to se« the plays. Ira Young said: "It doesn't amount to much more than a li'l donation ... but it does help." Ira has some boys in the Tri-County league and they have been doing well. Fans of Harrison High and Junior High are asked to watch for the schedule. * * * SAW AN .OLD FRIEND IN.MEMPHIS A FEW DAYS ago, Don Goodman, former Blytheville High football lineman. He weighs on the light end of 200 pounds now, about 48 pounds less than his playing days. Don said he lost most of it in service. I said: "Hard work or ill-prepared food?" "I was sick," he said. "Homesick." * * * BUDDY CHANDLER IS SOMETHING OF A STOCK car driver now, too. The boxer-wrestler-referee, his first time on a dirt track —a few Sundays ago at Blytheville Speedway—finished fifth In the Class C feature. "I thought that was pretty good," Buddy admitted. The next Sunday wasn't so good. He didn't finish. Buddy had gear trouble. He made the turn in high, thinking he was in second, didn't have the power and was smacked by another jalopy. "He put me on the wall and buckled my frame." Was he hurt? Naw, just a nick on the neck and leg. All part of the game, easier than trying to restore order in the Legion Arena ring. * * * THE ARKANSAS ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HAS DE- cided not to create another classification, stick with those it has but diwy up the leagues more attractively. It will undoubtedly take a good deal of brainwork, and concessions in some quarters, but in any case the Blytheville High football Chickasaws are sure to benefit. Anything would be better than the league they're now stuck in—unless it be a two- team league, Blytheville vs. Jonesboro. Something is cockeyed when Bob Williams has to go out and hustle up seven non-league games. The 1967 schedule has the Chickasaws playing their first game Sept. 1 (Helena here) but no league game until Oct. 20 (here against Jonesboro). * * * THE OLE MISS 1967-68 BASKETBALL BOOK HAS THIS on Larry Martindale: "Operated last winter as the Rebs' sparkplug and play- making boss. One of the year's most underrated performers in the SEC. Fine ball handler and tactician. His free- throw point after the game had ended handed Ole Miss a 58-57 win over Mississippi State closing out the campaign." Martindale, remember, played his senior high school sea. son at Wilsori, * school noted for its swimming, track and ,. football teams. Donnie Kessinger of Forrest City and the Chicago Cubs Is listed as Hie Ole Miss freshman coach for 67-68, so I reckon he won't be playing pro basketball for New Orleans. «' * * ' .

Now just thanks, thanks, thanks. _ 4-3, went the route for the third time in the Pirates last 36 games. No other Pittsburgh pitcher has completed a game in that stretch. Ferguson Jenkins set Philadelphia down on three hits. Adolfo Phillips hit a solo homer and Billy Williams a two- run shot for Chicago. Tony Gonzales homered for the Phillies. * * * A pair of three-run homers paced Atlanta to its victory over Los Angles. Clete Boyer also homered for the Braves, and Lou Johnson hit on for Los Angeles. Huston jumped on five St. Louis pitchers for 23 hits, including five by Bob Aspromonte and four by Ron Brand. Aspromonte, Brand, Rusty Staub and Jim Landis each drove in three runs as Bo Belinsky picked up his first victory, although he was relieved in the sixth when St. Louis scored to make it 3-1. The Astros then broke lose for 14 runs in the last three innings.. 1 f 169 Players Drafted By JACK HAND NEW YORK (AP) - John Michael Adamson, a right-handed pitcher from the University of Southern California, and Ron Bomberg, a high school first baseman from Atlanta, have been singled out as the top amateur prospects in the game as a result of baseball's free agent draft, Adamson, who failed to sign when the Philadelphia Phillies drafted him previously, was the No.l pick by the Baltimore Orioles in the secondary phase of the two-day selection meetings of the major leagues. Blomberg, an, 18-year-cd slugger from Atlanta's Druid Hills High School, was the No 1 pick by the New York Yankees among the record 975 new prospects selected in the regular phase of the draft. When the 20 big league clubs had completed their drafts for themselves and their minor league affiliates, a total of 1,169 players had been selected, in- cluding 194 in the secondary phase of athletes previously picked but not signed. * * * Adamson appears in line for a sizeable bonus from the Baltimore club which is anxious to bolster its pitching staff with young talent. A 6-foot-3, 195- pounder from San Diego, the Southern Cal sophomore is regarded as a red hot prospect. The Yanks, too, are expected to dig down deep for Blomberg, a 6-1, 185-pounder whose lefty swing conforms with the Yankee Stadium architecture. 0£ course, there is nothing that compels a player to sign with the team that drafted .him. However, he can not negotiate with any other team. If he is not signed he goes back into the pool at the next draft in January, or whenever he becomes eligible again. NBA Pension Plan Owners Agree ,. CHICAGO (AP) - Owners of National Basketball Association clubs have reached a pension agreement with the league's players association, settling an issue that nearly triggered a players strike during the NBA playoffs last season. The agreement was announced Wednesday after players from the league's 12 clubs, headed by Under the * * new colege rule, amounts. Kennedy said the program specifies that any player who breaches a contract by jumping to another league will forfeit all benefits. This was obviously aimed at the new American Basketball Association which currently is warring with the NBA for play„ _ . . .er talent. Oscar Robertson, star of the Kennedy said the pension will Cincinnati Royals, met with the - - - - owners for approximately au hour. Commissioner Walt Kennedy, who was awarded a five-year contract with a reported $10,000 annual salary increase to $60,000, said the plan affects all players on the active list as of Feb. 2, 2967. Under the agreement, players with 10 years of active service will get a maximum of $600 monthly at age 65. Coverage will begin with the player's third year in the league, with those from three to nine years of service . getting lesser adopted last December, college players can't be signed until they graduate or are 21. However, players drafted previously and then put back into the pool remain eligible in the secondardy phase as the rule was not made retroactive. The draft, now in its third year of operation, subs for the old system of wild bonus bidding among the 20 club's for the hot shot prospects. A few still get the big money hut only a few.

Ortega was sailing along on two-hit shutout until the eight when two-out singles by Mik Hegan, Mantle and Clark gav the Yankees a run. Baldwin re tired Amaro to escape the inning and then Knowles set New York down in the ninth. Rick Monday slashed a two- run inside-the-park homer, giving the Athletics their victory over Detroit and tagging Mickey Lolich, 5-7, with his fifth straight loss.
