Twins Coach Typifies Desire Hustle Keys Sports Success Hustle is the key to winning, Billy Martin, third base coach for the Minnesota Twins, told a packed house at the Jaycec sponsored father-son banquet for Little Leaguers in the Elk's Club here Wednesday night. "If you give 100 p«r e*nt, you can be whatever you want to be," Martin »atd. The mild-mannered and soft- spoken coach has mellowed since the days when he was the fiery second-base sparkplug for the New York Yankees and played in seven World Series. Described by the venerable Casey Stengel as "my kind of ball player," Martin typifies the athlete who overcame the handicap of size to reach the heights in professional baseball. "I made up my mind to play professional baseball when I was 14 years old," he said. ''When I graduated from high school in Berkley, Calif. I was CARROLL KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS THANKSGIVING DANCE SATURDAY NIGHT NOVEMBER IB AT THI CLUBROOMS Music by Richard Damstrom and His Orchestra Dancing 1:30-12:30—Lunch Aft«r Admission $1.00 Per Knights, Thtlr L»dl»i and Guests fiiiiuiM\\YY\> 5' 8" and weighed 120 pounds and everybody said 1 was too small and wouldn't make it." Martin broke into professional baseball at the age of 17 under Casey Stengel on t h c west coast. His second professional manager was the late Charley Drcsscn. He reached the pinnacle of lls success with the New York Yankees before he wound up tiis playing career with t h c Twins in 1961. His lifetime batting average was .257 and in 1953 he belted 17 home runs despite his comparatively small stature. "Although I played In seven World Series, my biggest thrill was in 1965 when the Twins won the pennant," he so id. In addition to handling the third base coaching chores for the Minnesota club, Martin is charged with coaching infielders. It takes constant practice and honesty to be a good ball player, Martin told his young listeners. "You must find out your mistakes and work to correct them," he said. "And above all else you must listen no matter who is talking." Pride and desire can make up for lack of size and the competitor who puts out 100 per cent is tough to beat, he emphasized. 2 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Nov. 16, 1967 "Hustle is important even in running out a pop-up or what looks like a sure out because you never know when the opposition will make an error and you can take advantage of their mistakes," he said. Martin looks for another four-team dog fight for the American League crown next year but frankly doesn't expect the Boston Red Sox to repeat. "Each of the three other top teams were stronger all around," he said. The Twins coach listed his own club, Detroit and Chicago as the top threats to Boston. "We played poorly in our last two games or we would have been in the series," he said. "If Jim Kaat could have finished in next to the last game, we would have won." In looking ahead to n»jct season, the Twins are dot* perately seeking a catcher and another relief pitcher. "I don't know where we will find them, or how much we will have to give up to get them," he said. Tom Schapman was master of ceremonies at the banquet and John Bruner and Terry Hyland were co-chairman for the affair. Indiana Home for Grid Stars CHICAGO (AP) - Back home in Indiana, All-America bids are shining bright this football season. You can start with Purdue's remarkable halfback, Lcroy Keyes, and add a few of his standout Boilermaker teammates, plus some glittering performers from amazing Indiana and still-bristling Notre Dame. In a turnabout from last season, when two Midwest powers — Notre Dame and Michigan State — loaded The Associated Press' first two All-America teams with superstar seniors, a youth movement prevails in the Hoosier land surge of talent. Keyes. the fantastic Boilermaker who leads the nation in scoring with 108 points on 18 touchdowns, is only a junior. Even younger sparklers are such sophomores as Mike Phipps, third-ranked Purdue's quarterback who is No. 3 nationally in total offense, and fifth-ranked Indiana's Whiz-Kid trio of quarterback Harry Gonso, flanker Jade Butcher and halfback John Isenbarger. Other juniors putting up big steam for the Boilermakers in- clude fullback Perry Williams, tight end Marion Griffin, linebacker Dick Marvel, and middle guard Chuck Kyle. But also high on the AP's regional screening board All- America list are such senior Purdue stalwarts as offensive guard Bob Sebeck, defensive end George Olion and linebacker Frank Burke. Sebeck, Williams and Kyle were cited especially by Dick Cullum, board member from the Minneapolis Tribune, following Purdue's 41-12 pasting of Minnesota. Notre Dame, gathering momentum after earlier setbacks by Purdue and Southern California, has top All-America candidates.
