Marichal Draws 9-Day Suspension, Heavy $1,750 !PAGE 2 Greensburg (Ind.) Daily News, Tuesday. Aug. 24,1965 Baseball Scoreboard (United Press International) By GENE COSTELLO PITTSBURGH (UPI) - Juan Marichal has publicly apologized for hitting Dodger catcher John Roseboro on the head with his bat, ; but some Los Angeles players feel his $1.750 fine and nine-day suspension were too lenient. The San Francisco Giant pitching ace clubbed Roseboro Sunday when Roseboro' return throw to pitcher Sandy Koufax nicked him on the ear, according to Marichal. Roseboro denied the ball hit the Giant pitcher. It took 14 minutes to quell the brawl that ensued when both benches and bullpens emptied onto the field. Marichal was banished and Roseboro left the game with a cut on his head which was treated by the Dodger trainer. The only apparent effects to Roseboro were a headache and a bump Monday. National League President Warren Giles notified Marichal Monday of the league action. He ordered that Marichal pay the fine and if the club advanced it to him. the sum had to be deducted from the pitcher's salary. To Miss Start The nine-day suspension— which figures out to only eight playing dates — means that Marichal will miss his next start and be one day late for his second. The Dodgers, expecting Giles to really sit down hard on Marichal. were incensed. They were in New York to play the Mets. "I thought it ! \vas a real gutless decision." said Dodger captain Maury Wills. "I think the punishment should have been much more severe." Don Drysdale would not comment on the punishment meted Marichal. but he significantly pointed out that he was once suspended five days because an umpire "thought" he threw at a batter. "They did it backwards." Ron Fairly maintained. "He should have 'been suspended 1.750 days and fined SS. 1 thought -he got off very leniently." Roseboro. by nature a quiet man, said he didn't care what the league did to Marichal. A questioner persisted however, and asked the Dodger backstop what he would have liked the punishment to be. Alone Together "Just him and me in a room nate Aug. for 10 minutes." he said softly. American hander was going to pitch him close. He said Roseboro's toss baok hit his ear. "I felt it." he said. "I never thought he'd throw to hit me." Marichal said he turned and asked Roseboro, "why did you do that?" and received no answer. "He took off his catcher's mask and came at me," he recalled. "I do not know if he tried to hit me with the mask." He suggested he swung the bat as a reflex action. Bowiing News Parkside Lanes Ladies Wednesday Night League Pts.

Tuesday's Games Arkansas at Denver Indianapolis at Oklahoma City Salt Lake City at San Diego Tacoma at Seattle Portland at Vancouver Spokane at Hawaii Lema Wins First Prise Of $35,000 By DICK DEW UPI Sports Writer SUTTON, Mass. (UPI)—Tony Lema used to drink champagne on a beer budget. He still drinks champagne 'but now he can afford it. Lema headed for Akron, Ohio, and the next tournament on the pro golf tour carrying a check for $35,000 for winning the Carling World Tournament. The 31-year-old Lema won the brewery' fat first prize -when he survived a final round comeback charge by Arnold Palmer and his re-enlisted army. Palmer's attack or. Lema's leadership of the $200,000 tournament overcame a five-stroke deficit, reminiscent of some of his greatest comebacks. Took Heart But the 35-year-old all - time professional money - winning champion bogied the 16th and 17th holes at Pleasant Valley Country Club. And Lema, in trouble several times though he capped his championship with a one-under 70, took obvious heart when Palmer's charges ran out of gas. Suave Tony, his celebration champagne on ice in the press tent since his lead reached five strokes, safely matched par on the final seven holes' to run his official tour earnings to §98.016.62. "If anybody ever told me I'd make $98,000 in one year playing golf. . ." he said, shaking his head in disbelief. "I once got a check for $7 in professional goM." He played even par golf for the first two rounds in the rain- postponed tournament, caught fire in his third round with a four-under 67, and caiiia home with a 279. That was two strokes better than Palmer's 69-73-70-69—281. Palmer earned $17,000 to markedly improve his position as 27th on the money list going into the tournament. Campbell Third Rugged Joe Campbell bit hard on his eighth cigar of the day and sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th for third money of 58,500 with a 282 total. Sam Snead, who used a wood on the greens after breaking his putter in disgust halfway through the last round, wound up tied with South Africa's Gary Player, the top foreign finisher, for fourth at 283. Each pocketed $6.850, so Snead can certainly afford a new putter. Homero Blancas, the rookie pro from Texas who had tied with Lema entering the final; round, suffered a virus throughout the last 18 holes and tied PGA champ Dave Marx at 284 for sixth place and S5.5GO. Bobby Nichols, winner of the $35,000 first place prize in last year's inaugural Carling's, wound up tied for 13th place. And Jack Nioklaus, the tour's leading money - winner, earned only $945 with a tie for 38th. Nickiaus had needed $1,730 to match Palmer's all-time tour price record of $128.239 set in 1963.
