Fraley's facts, figures By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer MLAMI (UPI) — Fearless Fraley's facts and figures: In the limburger memory of the Sonny Liston-Cassius Clay thing it has gotten so bad that even the society and saloon reporters are breathlessly spreading the word Rocky Marciano is being sought for a comeback. As reported in tliis comer last week, the Rock has spoken a very definite "no" to two entreaties for his services. While Listen admits "I didn't train hard enough," the forthright ."Marciano says he doesn't have the drive, "and the way I feel it would be a fraud to try to put on the gloves." It's a wise move on tlie 40- year-old Marciano's part. He's balding and has a bread basket which bears honest testimony to his admission that "I love to eat." Remaining retired and undefeated preserves a record of which he is rightfully proud. Gulfstream race track is try­ ing to lure George Pope's Hill Rise and Rex Ellsworth's The Scoundrel out of the West to tangle with Northern Dancer and Calumet's Ky. Pioneer in the April 4 Florida Derby. If they manage it, the contest would take a lot of icing off the Kentucky Derby cake. Meanwhile, WiUie Shoemaker's reason for down - playing Northern Dancer after riding the chunky colt to victory in the Flamingo becomes more apparent. "The Shoe" said he thought the Canadian colt "needs more seasoning" but it may be a case of not boosting the opposition.. .WUlie is committed to Ellsworth and may have to ride The Scoundrel in the big three-year-old stakes.

Baltimore Oriole president Lee MacPhail sees "closer competition" for the New York Yankees from among Haiti more, Minnesota, Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit as end ing the American League's at tendance decline .. .But Yogi Berra might have dented those hopes when he analyzed with his cast-iron philosophy: Sometimes you try harder because you're a Yankee." And try harder with more talent. Baltimore's Boog Powell is kind of a case m pomt as to how frustrating some of the ballplayers find it in spring training. He reported weighing 251 pounds. Manager Hank Bauer wants him to play at at 235, so the six-foot, four-inch Powell spent two days working in a rubber suit and carefully watching his diet. The third day he weighed 253. Wilson retires. Rams look for new fullback LOS ANGELES (UPI) —Tlie Los Angeles Rams began to. day considering a replacement for fullback Ben Wilson who announced Friday he was re tirmg from pro football in order to attend dental school on a fuUtime basis.
