Rangers Hire Martin By .VllKK KAIU N UPI Sports Writer ARLINGZON, Tex. (UPI)Texas Ranger- owner' Bob Shor't, who said he would fh'e his own mother to hir'e l^illy Mar-fin, Saturday named the contr-over- sial- former Detr-oit and Minnesota skipper' to lead his own tr-oubled team and .said doing .so ensures the success of the franchise. Short said he had talked Mar-tin, 45, out of waiting until next season to lake over- the Rangers and that the new manager -would he in unifor'm for Texas Satur-day night against Oakland. "Billy Mar-tin is the most exciting and best manager- in baseball," .said Shor't who less than 24 hour-s befor-e had fired While Herzog to make r-oom for- Mar-tin. Short said Her-zog's disnnssal was made almost mandatory because of the poor- cjuality of play, the worst won-lost r-ecor'd in major league baseball and the lack of attenrlance at Ar'lington Stadium. o"This spells at this date, the success of the franchise," said Short. "If I could have anybody 1 wanted to manage this team, it would beBillvMar'tin. Martin was fired by Detr'oit General Manager James Campbell last Sunday after- what Campbell said had been a ser-ies of incidents which wer'c detr-iriiental to the club, including a dispute between Martin and American League President Joe Cronin over- the of .spitballs. Before he was fii-ed, Martin had been suspended for thr-ee days by Cronin for' publicly condoning the of spitballs by member's of his pitching .staff. "I'm not going to make any gr-eat promises," said Martin, dressed in a mar-oon jacket and slacks. "I want to see how muchspride this team has and I will be tr-yrng to win for- the r-est of the season." Mar'tin, who managed both Mir.nesola and Detr'oit to division penn:urts, said he had or'iginally planned to sit out the r'est of the 197.3 .season, birt had l)ee n convinced by Shor't that it was in his best inter-ests to take over- the Rangers immediately. Shorts .said that when he announced llerzog's dismissal Fr-iday night he had not yel convinced Mar-fin to take the job. "He called r7ic in about the seventh or- eighth inning of last night's ballgame," Shor-t said, "and saifl he had talked it over with his wife and was r-eady to take the jiosition."

II I) Cuiii The firing of Hei-zog was a shock to both player-s anrl area fans, and, although Short admitted it would not be a populr'ii' decision, he believed it was one he had to make. "If my mother was managing the Rangers and I had an oppor-tunity to hir-e Billy Mar'­ tin, I'd fire my mother," Shor-t said. Short said Martin would have a multiyear contr'act and Martin said he did not fear' for' his job if, by this time next year, the Ranger-s had not shown r e m a r' k a b 1 e improvement. "I'm a two-trme loisei," Mar-tin said. "So I don't wor'i'y about things like that." Mar'tin said he expected no trouble with any player's on the Ranger-s stiuad who might be consider'ed controversial. "Well, I'm contr'oversial myself, ar-en't r.'" Mar'tin asked. "I've always made this statement; Adolph Hitler'and Benito Mu.s.solini could play for' me if they had talent. What matter-s is the ability they have and not what comes oirt of their- mouth. "That's w4iat a manager- is for' is to handle peoj)le." Martin was fir-ed after- he led Mirmesota to the AL West title in his rookie year- of managing in 1969. He had guided the Tiger-s lo second place in the AL East in 1971 and the Tiger-s won the division last year- under' him. Mar'tin said he finally decided to take the job immediately so that he could evaluate his player's befor'c ne.\t year's spring tr'aining. "We have speed with thisclub and some good ai'nrs," .said Martin. "I'll be wor'king with (pitchirrg coach) Sid Hirdson irr evaluating oui- talent. But I don't want to ' make any comment about anybody on our- team until I have seen them. Ask meagaiirorrSept. 31." Clemson Edges Citadel, 14-12 CLEM.SON, S.C.
