That was the only time the crowd of 11,547 had much chance to cheer for the 38-year-old Tiger, a sentimental favorite but a 12-5 underdog in the betting. When he started going for in the fourth round Friday night at Madison Square Garden. The 6 3 2 inch challenger from Washington, D.C., opened the first round by spearing Tiger with his long left, but late in the round, Tiger suddenly made Foster gave a standing ovation as the old warrior left the ring. Now I know how those guys felt that I knocked out, said the squatty Tiger, smiling even in defeat.

His long reach bothered me, but he says hell give me a rematch. If he will, Id like to fight him again. It was the 16th loss against 58 wins and three draws for Tiger, who held the middleweight title twice before losing it the final time to Emile Griffith in 19 6 6. Although many had considered him washed up after the loss, Tiger came back to win the lightheavy crown from Jose Torres and 1 1 defended it against Torres and Roger Rouse. the body, he left himself wide open for those uppercuts that left hook that finished him, said the newly-crowned 29-year-old champion, who ran his record to 30 victories against four losses.

I knew it was only a matter of time. After spearing away contentedly at Tiger for the next two rounds and piling up points on the scorecards, Foster unleashed a combination in the fourth round that staggered Tiger and then finished him off with a snaking left hook. Tiger, knocked down only once before during his career, sat dumbly on the canvas as referee Mark Conn tolled 10. As soon as the count was finished, Fosters well wishers rushed for the ring and Tigers NEW YORK (UPI) Bob Foster is poorer by $21,000 today, but he doesnt mind because that was the price of winning the light heavyweight title from old soldier Dick Tiger. Although Foster was given 60 per cent of the receipts, he lost $21,000 for the evenings work.

The net receipts, in-eluding television revenue, amounted tq $132,000, meaning that Foster was given about $79,000. But to get the bout, he had to guarantee Tiger $100,000, and the difference will have to come out of his financial backers pockets. Foster crashed through the Biafrans crouching defense with a right uppercut and left hook to knock out Tiger for the first time in 77 pro bouts ValleyeTimes Sports Claude Newman, Editor 12 Saturday, May 25, 1968 TJPI Telephoto SIDELINED Kansas world record holder in the mile Jim Ryun, photographed in the recent Big Eight meet, will suspend training for at least two weeks, Kansas officials reported, due to a mild case of Mononucleosis. Major League Linescores Double Penally All the time I thought guys in journalism knew less about more things than anyone, but now comes an assistant professor of the fourth estate with a pretty fair plan to make baseball more exciting and produce higher scores. This profs name is Dr.

Ivan L. Preston of Penn State (I never knew those blue bloods even went to a ball game) who has quite a revolutionary idea that would delight the fans and give the game a shot in the arm It has to do with base running. Under the current rules when a base runner is caught off base, stealing or picked off, he and the team pay TWO penalties he is taken off the base paths and his team is charged with an out This is double penalty according to Preston He proposes the offensive team or the one at bat should be charged with only one penalty. Preston suggests that the offensive manager should have a choice either remove the runner from the base paths without losing an out or take the out and return the runner to the last base he touched safely In other words, for example If Willie Davis is caught stealing second base, Manager Walter Alston could either decide to remove Davis from the base paths without losing the out Or leave Davis on second and take the out This would be good on a two-out attempt. Preston added that the elimination of double penalty would produce more of what the fans come to the ball park to see action and runs With Prestons revolutionary plan the penalty for getting caught stealing would not be as great and runners would try to steal or take extra bases more often.

This naturally would test the fielders more frequently, resulting in a more wide open contest, more wild throws and more runs being scored. Preston didnt make himself quite clear if his plan includes a base runner getting tagged out trying to stretch a single into a double, a double into a triple, etc. Frankly, I dont think it should because after all there must be some reward for the defense that is capable of throwing out a base runner. Leave the Came Alone At any rate the Preston plan for more exciting baseball was tried at Penn State today in an intra tquad game. Really, I feel that if there is any tinkering with baseball, all that should be done is decrease the strike zone and toss out any baseball that bears any scuff mark which will help the pitchers Theres no question early in the season the pitchers are ahead of the hitters which makes for all these low scoring and shutout games.

Now, if the wiseacres go about tinkering with the game, changing the rules, regulations and what have you, just what is baseball going to do with all those records. Leave the game alone, shouted Red Patterson, vice president of the Los Angeles Dodgers You know, he might be right. Stolls Best Shot The Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce-Ottos Pink Pig golf tournament was a marathon event at tough Valencia Golf Course the other day, but Bob Stoll didnt care as he made a hole-in-one on the 146-yard 12th hole during the tourney And whats even better is that his ace came on the hole earmarked closest to the pin, good for a trophy Well, needless to say, Stolls shot couldnt have been bettered, only tied, so, he had first place pretty well clinched. The annual Sherman Oaks C.C.-Pink Pig tee affair was a dandy (thanks to Jim Wilson and Don Ogelsby), although it did take a little too long over Valencia where I think that golf pro and director Jimmy Thompson should Install a Go Go Golf plan Five and a half hours for 18 holes, Jimmy, is a little too much time. Here Comes Chaminade That man Dave Galemeau doesnt let any grass grow under his feet nor his motorbike He finally started a football program at Chaminade High School in Canoga Park and even before his 38 kids know where and what they are going to do, he has lined up five games this fall The five games that Chaminades first football team is going to play so far (he wants to play eight in all) aie Cleveland High junior varsity, Northridge Military, L.A.

Baptist and Penn Military of Hesperia on a home and home basis. Coach Galemeau is starting right from scratch, hasnt had any contact work whatsoever, so, its tough to get a line on a boy, but two youngsters from our newest state in the Union, Hawaii, Mike Yano, a 10th grader and Bill Yonemitso, 11th grader, show promises of being pretty fair gridders Yano is a ball packer while Yonemitso is an end There are only 300 boys at Chaminade, yet, there is a turnout of 38 who report at spring practice these days Thats a remarkable percentage and truly the right spirit by the Chaminade students. OMalley and The Ravine An interested tax paying citizen wanted to know just what the Dodgers and Walter OMalley have done to fulfill their agreement with the city of Los Angeles to provide for the recreation area in Chavez Ravine I learned that the Dodgers and OMalley have constructed four baseball diamonds with four backstops on the 40 acres, pay all the taxes and provide $60,000 a year for the parks maintenance I havent seen the contract (which came in the Chavez Ravine package when OMalley received some 360 acres for his ball park), so I cant tell you if he has or has not fulfilled his agreement to the letter. HOUSTON -Bill Singer will be wishing for two things when he takes the mound against the Astros tonight. Hell be hoping the Dodgers didnt waste all their hits in last nights 9-7 overtime victory, and hell be striving to even his seasons record to 5-5.

The surging Dodgers, in Winning their fourth straight, have leaped into a tie for fourth, only three and one-half lengths behind front-running San Francisco. Bob Bailey was the hero for the second night in a row. His three-run homer featured a five run 10th inning which lifted the Dodgers to a 9-7 victory. Bailey, whose llth-inning single had given the Dodgers a 3-2 victory over St. Louis Thursday, smashed a Don Wilson fast ball over the center field fence with two on and two out and the score tied 4-4.

The Dodgers, in their biggest inning of the year, scored two more on a walk and consecutive singles by Paul Popovich, Tom Haller and Jim Brewer, the winning pitcher. The 19 hits by the Dodgers represented their best production of the year. The Astros had tied the game in the ninth with two runs. Houston made another last-gasp bid in the 10th with four straight hits, scoring three runs on singles by Rusty Staub, Lee Thomas and Jim Wynn and a two-run double by Bob Aspromonte. John Purdin struck out pinch-hitter Byron Browne to end the game.

By BOB CUOMO Prep Sports Editor It was easy to distinguish between Marine League diamond devotees and Western League baseball partisans following the semifinal round of the City Tournament Friday. The Marine Leaguers were the ones proudly sticking out their chests and sporting I told you so looks on their beaming faces. They had good reason to be happy, for Gardena and Carson had just set the stage for an all-Marme circuit finale. The Mark Sogge-led Mohicans blanked Hamilton, 2-0, while Carsons Colts tripped University, 3-1, behind Marty Nunos 12-strikeout hurling. Gardena struck early against the Yankees, pushing across a pair of runs in the first inning when Steve Shaw socked a double to score Sogge and Derry DeGutre.

From that point on the game belonged to Sogge and Hamiltons Dale Morris, as both pitchers allowing nothing but goose eggs the rest of the way. Yankee boss Dave Rebd lauded Morns performance, but felt his lads muffed some scoring opportunities. We beat ourselves. For example, there was a missed signal and PINCAY SAYS BACK SORE AFTER SPILL Jockey Laffit Pincay Jr leading rider at Hollywood Park, was thrown from his mount Friday during the fifth race but escaped with only minor bruises. Pincay was spilled when his mount, Fred W.

Hoopers Wild Jack, suffered an internal hemorrhage, fell and died almost instantly. The Panamanian rider was taken to the track hospital where an examination disclosed no serious injury although Pincay complained of a sore back. He was- removed from his mounts for the balance of the day but was scheduled to ride Dewan in todays $35,550 Argonaut Stakes. Totals 43 9 19 9 LOS ANGELES Houston CALIFORNIA CLEVELAND Versalles.
