Baseball '68: Heroes, Has-beens Arkansas Basketball Scores By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS State High Schoolaa810n%~-TS ' At Little Rock Class A AA Fort Smith Northslde 58, Jonesboro 48, semifinal By IRA BERKOW NEA Sports Writer NEW YORK-(NEA)-At one time, Detroit's first basemen were two of the most feared batters in baseball. Now, Norm Cash and Eddie Mathews cause concern to pitchers, but not necessarily alarm. Hope that Cash and Mathews can return to some of their past prowess has stimulated a number of experts to pick the Tigers for first place ihis coming season. Until last season, Cash had averaged 32 homers per year for the previous six seasons. Me reached his peak in 1961 with 41 homers, 132 RBIs and a .361 batting'average. Cash, now 33, dropped to 22 homers, 72 RBIs and a .242 batting average. Those totals Were his Bethune lowest since he became a Tiger regular in 1960. Mathews, 36, is a 17-year veteran. He was one of the game's greatest home run hitters as a third baseman for the Braves, He began last season with•••„the. Houston Astros, and was traded to the Tigers. He hit .238 with 10 homers and drove in 38 runs in 101 games. With Detroit, in 36 games, he struck six homers, drove in 19 runs and batted .231. Mathews played a majority of the games last season at first base. And Don Wert is set at third for Detroit. It's up to the two former stars, Fort Smith Southslde 58, Pine Cash and Mathews, to hold up their corner of the infield. If they do, they just might slug Detroit to its first pennant in 23 years. Two other American Leaguers, once prominent in slugging circles, are hanging on with pennant contenders.

For years Howard was the top catcher in the league with the Yankees, Last season he was traded to Boston and provided needed backstop support for the Red Sox' championship drive. But Howard is now 37. He can still handle pitchers well, of course, However, his work at the plate is another matter. In 66 games for New York last year, he hit three homers, drove in 17 runs and had a .196 batting average. He played 42 games for Boston, hitting just one homer, driving in U runs and finished with a 447 average. Allison, after several fine seasons with the Washington Senators and later when the club moved to Minnesota, experienced a bit of a comeback after a dismal year In 1966. He batted .220 that season, and had eight homers and 19 RBIs, the lowest totals of his career. But last season fye performed well in many clutch situations and finished the year with 24 homers, 75 RBIs and a ,258 average. ? Allison, 33, may not be at the end of his line, as some have been predicting for the past few seasons. I Newt paper Inter priie Ann,) ..,', let'* Go »Y BOB BBEWSTKB | OttUnr Milttr. Ttlrnrf HOT STOVE LEAGUE ; Those who think that the "hot stove league" vanished with the general store pert? bellied stove and the cracker barrel just haven't wanderfkj into a local fishing tackle emporium lately. .;.'• '','. ,j- This intititution still I unctions throughout the U.S., My the fishing experts at Mercury outboards. After all, the average red-blooded American has to have a place to hang out and discuss topics of mutual interest with his fellow man. " As a kid, he had a club house on a vacant lot, or n little pl^t- form built in the old apple tree in the backyard. As a teenager the local drug store, soda fountain, or a particular street corner sufficed for a hang-out,. Adults require similar spo'ts to satisfy their togetherness instincts. Women do their gabbing in the beauty parlor, Qr over a card table at the weekly afternoon bridge session. Fishermen, however, have another alternative. Almost any sporting goods store has a spot where a group of men can gather around and compare notes about fish and fishing. Here a man can look, listen and learn. t As a member of the local hoi stove league he can finger a new lure, or flex a new rod without a cent in his pocket; He can listen to the big boys; compare notes with fellow anglers, learn to stretch the truth in telling about his own fishing exploits, and find out where the best fishing holes are, v Membership In this great angling fraternity is not regulated by income, position, or a man's ancestors. All he needs to become initiated into this organization Is to prove that he's as anxious to get out on the water as the others, If he.'s a fisherman, he's welcome to pull up a chair and become a member of the group. So, men, if you're not already a member of your local angler's hot stove league, the Mercury lads suggest you go down to tM tackle store and Join up, Of course, it won't compare with actually being out on the water, but remember, the next • thing to fishing, is talking about $727 FOR CASEY FUND , GRANPI-ORKS, N.D.
