Robin Roberts tosses blanks, wins 1-0 By United Press IntemiHonel Robin Roberts, who once specialized in throwing bullets, now is tossing blanks — much to the delight of the Baltimore Orioles. Roberts, the 37-year-old workhorse righthander who banked on a fine fastball in his prime with the Philadelphia Phillies, has lost some zip from his arm. But opposing batters hai-dly notice the difference. The onetime Whiz Kid, now in his 17th major league sea son, tossed the 38th shutout of his career at the Boston Red Sox "ttursday night to earn the Orioles a 1-0 victory and a split of their twi-night doubleheader. Boston won the first game, 3-1. Roberts' nine-hit performance now places him in a tie for sec ond place with Billy Pierce ofj the San Francisco Giants for total shutouts among active players. Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee Braves leads with 62. Increases String The victory by Roberts, his first of the season, also increased his string of scoreless innings to 14. The game was scoreless entering the bottom of the eighth when consecutive singles by Jack Brandt, Luis Aparicio and Norm Siebem off! Boston starter Dave Morehead clinched the victory. In the opener. Jack Lamabe, a former relief specialist, won his second straight game in a starting role although he needed help from Dick Radatz in the eighth. Lamabe scattered 11 hits over seven innings. Defending league batting champi on Carl Yastrzemski smashed a solo homer over the centerfield wall and Dick Stuart dou bled home two runs for the Red Sox scoring. In other American League games. Ken McBride hit Wood-j ie Held with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to force in the vanning run and give the Cleveland Indians a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels, and the Washington Senators edged the Jlinnesota Twins, 5-4, in the only games scheduled. NL Action In the National League, Ken Johnson pitched a no-hitter for the Houston Colts, but lost to the Cincinnati Reds, 1-0; the Philadelphia Phillies rallied to nip the Pittsburgh Pirates, 6-5; the Los Angeles Dodgers stung St. Louis, 7-5; and the Chicago Cubs defeated the New York MeU, 5-1. McBride also hit three other batters during the evening to equal the modem American League mark. With nmners on first and second in the mnth, JIcBride plunked catcher John Romano for the second time in the game and then winged Held for the deciding run. Wmning pitcher Dick Donovan accounted for the Tribe's other two runs with a tivo-run single in the fifth. Don Blasingame and Bill Skowron punched run-scoring; singles in the eighth inning to lift the Senators past the Twms after Minnesota had forged from behind to take a 4-3 lead Ron Kline preserved the vie tory for veteran Steve Ridzik, Jim King slammed a three-run homer for Washington. Besides his writing, Jim Brosnan, idle pitcher, has an other talent — cooking. His wife might be away for a few days. "When I come home," she says, "I give the kids com flakes for breakfast. And they wonder where the crepes suzette are, like their father had given them.". . . Larry Morris, the Chicago Bear linebacker who stole the show in the championship game and won a sports car for his efforts, has only one complaint "I just wish," said the Atlanta resident, "I could have avoided driving it from New York (where he was awarded the car) to Georgia. It's mightly hard on your back." . . Gary Player is now a yoga addict. He stands on liis head five times a day. The litUe South African is one of the great faddists of sports. Wheat germ and raisins used to be his kick. Black clothing stiU is. And then there was the time he showed up on the course two-toned — one leg all white, the other all black. "Ridiculous, wasn't it?" winched Gary when reminded of the incident. And who do you think made up the outfit? Fellow golfer Jackie Burke's sports clothes firm. 10 pros tie for first in Texas Open Gai7 Vbtftr five that made Jose wish he had never studied English. Wynn took the accident as a personal affront ... Speaking of getting hit, left hander Jim Kaat of Minnesota still has a ball which struck him in the mouth ott the bat of Bubba Morton, and eventually parted him and seven Al Davis, the AFL coach of the year, was in New York to study the opening of Shea Stadium for a slant on possible improvement for the new Oakland sports palace. The first flaw spotted by Al was lack of storage room, so that when the Mets move out after the season, they have no place to stow their gear. And that may not be bad. ... If a pitcher is going to get hit by a batted ball, make sure it's from a .196 hitter like Washington used to have in Jose Valdivielso. Valdy lined one off the chin of Early Wynn when Old Gus was pitching for Cleve land (he's now the Tribe's mound coach). Early staggered around like a dnmk, slapped a piece of tape on the wound and finished his stint Next day a photographer brought Valdy over to the Indian dugout for a picture with Wynn. Ten feet away, Early spotted the short-, stop and let a flood of invec- teeth. John David Crow, the high' salaried and much-injured run- mng back of the St Louis football Cardinals, was within one defensive back of bemg sent to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cards wanted tackle Riley Gun nels, which was O.K., and comer back Irv Cross, which wasn't And Crow is still a cinch to be dealt to some other club. Dig the British-inspired narration that went with the new release of "The Grand Olympics," a film of the 1960 Rome games:e.g., the reference to decathlon champ Rafer Johnson as "Olympic star and philosopher"; the description of shot- putter Parry O'Brien's bulk as "222 pounds displacement". . . Between you'n'me, the unrest among the Chicago White Sox over contract difficulties was serious enough to force Al Lo pez to call a meeting this spring and advise them not to discuss their dissatisfaction in public. One Chisoxer was cut $6,000 because he didn't produce last year. He was out three months with a broken col lar bone. SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (UPI)Ih most golf tournaments, you cant ten the players without a scorecard. In the Texas Open you need one just to list all the leaders. The golfers—count 'em, ten- share the lead coming into today's second round. And if that's not crowded enough for you, there are a total of 44 within three strokes of the lead —all of them at par or better. The mob at the tip varied from youngsters Gary Gloan of Lewiston, Idaho, playmg his first tournament after his re'- cent discharge from the Army, to veteran E. J. (Dutch) Harri son, who has been on the tour more than 30 years. Other leaders after the first round were Don January of Dallas, Charles Sifford of Los An geles, Bob Rosburg of Portland, Ore., Gene Littler of La Jolla Calif., Jack Rule of Cedar Rapids,.Iowa, and Terry Dill from the town with the intriguing name, Muleshoe, Tex. Rounding out the top 10 are Bob Charles of Christchnrch, New Zealand, the 1963 British Open champion, and Jerry Steelsmith of Glendale, Calif. The Texas Open this year was made even more wide open with the failure of the two big money winners—Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus—to enter. Both took the week off to get ready for next week's Touma- ment of Champions at Las Vegas, Nev. Bunched at 68 and one stroke off the lead were Bob McCallis ter, Richard Crawford, Tommy Aaron, Jerry Pittman, Dean Refram, Rod Runseth and Mason Rudolph. The. field will be cut to the low 70 and ties after today's round. The low 60 and ties will compete in Sunday's finale. Touring pros foment war on golf establishment Jofre to defend title in LA. LOS ANGELES (UPI)—World bantamweight champion Eder Jofre of Brazil Thursday accepted aa offer of $40,000 plus expenses to defend his title here this summer, Leo Miuskoff, president of Civic Boxing Enterprises, announced. Jofrc's opponent in the championship bout will be the winner of the May 4 title elimination fight here between Jesus Pimentel of Mexico and "fighting" Mashihiko Harada of Tokyo. Minskoff said Jofre's manager, Abraham Katzanelson, had accepted the offer for the title fi^t at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in either July or August The World Boxing Association currently rates Pimentel the No. 1 bantamweight contender. Ha-' rada, a former world flyweight' titleholder, has been competing ia the bantamweight di\'ision for the past year. He is rated the No. 2 contender by Ring afagaxJne. 3,000 f o compete in Mt.

By MURRAY OLDERMAN NEW YORK - (NEA) — A cleaver is being aimed at the lucrative world of golf. The 150-odd regular perform ers of the pro tour are in state of acute foment They want to break away from the Professional Golfers Association, which clutters up their private little money carpet stretching across 43 tour naments, with some 5,000 club pros who stay at home and straighten out slices. Bugging them particularly $400,000 in the bludging PGA piggy bank, none of it collect ing any interest, most of it con- tributol by the touring pros in entry fees, all of it controlled by the PGA. Facts Oassified Ads Can Sell Anything CaU 793-3221 Some golf people read significance into Amie Palmer's complamt a month ago that their group needs a strong czar who could appreciate their problems. Nice and conveniently, Amie has an adviser, Mark H. McCormack, who is undoubt edly the strongest figure in the game. McCormack is a young Cleveland lawyer who controls the finances and moves of Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, the two hottest attractions. He also pulls the bit on Gary Player, Bob Charles and Doug Sanders, all of them winners. Without McCormaek's cooperation, there is no tournament worth speaking of. He's the first man any sponsor approaches because it Mark promises one of his boys, the show is made. Nicklaus, saved the show at Houston," admitted Fred Corcoran, who has his own stable of nine pros headed by Tony Lema. "Lema and Palmer weren't there." McCormaek's waiting until he gets 20 top players," a tour regular told me. "Then he'll break away. He already has 10. "The other day I was playing with Gene Littler, and a guy comes up and asks him about some deal. 'You'll have to see McCormack,' he says. "You know what that means." The pro wasn't happy about McCormaek's Big Brother image. Maybe because, although he makes his $35,000 a year, he's not one of Mack's chosen people. A split between the touring pros ajid the PGA appears inevitable, and when it does happen, McCormack, with all the atfractions at the end of his string, will be in the driver's seat. The television possibilities alone whet the imagination. The package deal is the thing in sports. Professional football has it Baseball is working on it The PGA is aware o£ it with a special committee set up to see that the players get their share of the revenue. But think of McCormack offering ills special troupe, containing almost all the prime attractions. It might be atfractive to us," admitted Perry Smith, the sports director at NBC, which beams the Bing Crosby Open, the Tournament of Champions POWERFUL FORCE Redlands Oai// Facts Friday. Apr. 24, 1964 -7 jhS'S AiA*/ Wh/O coNTaoiJS TUB PQ/MB at Las Vegas, the U.S. Open and the World Series of Golf. 'I don't know if people would get tired of seeing the same 20 every week. But then," he reflected, "they see the same 20 anyhow." If he could pull it off," admitted Jack Dolph, the CBS director of sports, "some network would put him on. Especially if he did it right — with starting times tailored for television and other angles to help the medium." Dolph pointed out, however, that televised golf is a fickle thing: "The advertisers buy golf more for prestige than the efficiency of the buy. You've got to look at the ratings. Foot ball is still efficient because it delivers the audience." Imply ing that golf doesn't. The idea of the pro golfers breaking away from the regu lar body of the PGA, in any form, is not new. Corcoran, who was the PGA's first tournament manager back in 1936 when a 54-hoIe tournament was worth $3,000 and 72 holes were cut-rated for $5,000, has his own gimmick to keep everybody happy. The trouble with golf," he said, "is too many players. Break the tour into two divi­ sions — one for the experts one for the young kids starting out "Put 90 to 100 great players in the top group. We need only two tourneys a month. These guys are overgolfed right now, and there aren't enough great golfers to go around. The best tournament in golf is the one the PGA doesn't run — the Masters. "This way, with a Masters list of players, every city would have a Masters. You can eliminate cut-offs and qualifying rounds. Too many people the last two days at Atlanta wanted to know where Sam Snead was. 'Make every tournament worth at least $50,000. For the other tour, it would be $15,000, so the kids could have a chance to make some dough. I sent| two young players on the tour one year at my expense. One of them made $40." Definitely not the kind that would make McCormaek's menage. Presidential Pants James Madison, U. S. president during the War of 1812, was the first American chief executive to wear pants; all his predecessors had wom knee breeches. Yucaipa Little League practice opens next week Formal practice will begin next week for both major and minor teams in the Yucaipa Little League program. Sessions will be confined to one afternoon a week and weekends until the close of schooL Players who have not been assigned to teams will t>e placed on minor league rosters for the practice sessions, Stuart Ramsay, league president said. A number of changes are expected in both the leagues as they do not become final until 15 days before the start of the season. Younger boys and those who lack practice and aptitude will be assigned later to a clinic to be conducted by the Yucaipa Recreation Commission under the direction of George Leja. The commission is a co-sponsor of the league and is of assistance both financially and otherwise. A record crowd of more than 700 people were fed at the annual breakfast of the Yucaipa Rotary-Kiwanis Little League. Stuart Ramsay said it was the largest crowd m the history of the event and it became necessary several times to send out for additional supplies. The league, at its weekly meeting voted thanks to Jean Ramsay and Rusty Bicketts who put in many hours of work in the kitchen. They were voted season passes" to the games. Gratitude to the men and firms who supplied most of the food, Frank Hughes of Food Fair Market, the McAnnaDy Ranches and Col. Joseph Parilla for eggs and the CS'afton Dairy for milk. The next big event on t h e league calendar is the annual rally, which will be held May 15 at Yucaipa Elementary School. There will be a talk on LL and a question and answer period. Feature of the evening will be the showing in sound and color of the 1963 World Series movie, showing the Los Angeles Dodgers down the New York Yankees. Vince Scully, "voice of the Dodgers" is the narrator. The league needs a scorekeeper and anyone interested should contact the league president.
