Ryan Are Added to All- IffsW YORK -QJPI) - the National and American league, with an assist from Commissioner *owie Kuhn, gave the 44th All-Star game back to America 's baseball fans today in moves thtt overrode the naivete of the managers of the two squads. "Yes, fans in Kansas City 's fflyv stadium and on the TV Ttibe, July 24, are likely to see Willie Mays, perhaps the most exciting player of the last 25 jfcars, perform for the Nation*. als and Nolan "Double and Near triple No-Hit" Ryan make an appearance for the Americans. Mays and Ryan were added to the respective squads Thufi* day after Kuhn granted the two leagues permission to increase their squads by one man apiece. The moves by baseball's three top executives came after the rival managers-sparky Anderson of the Cincinnati Reds and Dick Williams of the Oakland A's-had failed to include Mays of Ryan on their squads. Making their selections en the basis of current professional excellence, the managers concluded that Mays and Ryan did not measure up to those standards. What they overlooked—and what Kuhn, National League President Charles Feeney and American League President Joe Cronin realized—is that the All Stir game Is one of the game's ihAwetie event! and hag been popularised over the years since 1IM as "the fans' game/' The desire of the fans to see oW favorites as opposed to young players having better seasons has been evident in .nationwide balloting. Mays' presence on the NL squad is a concession that the fans want to set : M U take one more turn around^rhaps ,his last-with the greats of the game even though his skills may be diminishing, Ryan's presence on the AL squad Iran acknowledgement that the same fans want to see a pitcher who has pitched two no^hitters and come within an Inning of another in the last two months, face the cream of the NL's hitters. Other players named to the NL squad by Anderson are infietders Nate Colbert of San Diego, Dave Concepcion of Cincinnati, Darrtll Evans and ttave Johnson of Atlanta, Joe Torre of St. Louis and infielder- outfielder Willie Stargell of Pittsburgh, catcher ted Simmons of St. Louis, and outfielder Bobby Bonds of San Francisco, Willie Davis and Manny Mota of Los Angeles, Ron Fairly of Montreal and Bob Watson of Houston. Those added to the AL squad by Williams are infielders Pat Kelly of Chicago, John Mayber* ry of K»m:y^ifi-.

Angels' '•mil No-Hit to s Third Baltimore ft ill* bBy United Press International L 'cGood grief—and he lost the gjrtie, too. ,It was frustrating enough that $61jin Ryan came within sijc imite of becoming the first ipitoher ever to throw three no- hitters in one season and the lirst since 1938 to throw "cdHsecutive no-hitters. But the California Angels' fjgijt-hander, who pitched a no- hitter in Detroit Sunday, was eventually charged with the loss as the Baltimore Orioles squeered out a 3-1 triumph in 11 innings. Good grief. A wild pitch and a fluke hit cost him the spot in the history books. But as Ryan said after it was over, "Personally I think I have another shot if I keep my stuff and my luck stays with me," Ryan, who was named to the Ail-Star team by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn Thursday in an unusual move when the squad was increased from 28 to 29 men, didn't give up a hit until lime jor League Leaders ^ United Press International Leading Batters National League . g. ab r. h. 62 207 26 72 99 368 63121 74 236 38 77 95 385 63 125 81 318 88 313 ym, LA $ai£n, Hou Unser, Phil Rose, Cm Maddox, SF 81318 43103 Ccdnl, Chi 88 313 53 101 Mathews, SF 86 297 43 96 Rbnsn, Phil 58 208 29 67 ©oodson, SF 83 316 33100 Cedeno, Hou 78 294 55 93 American League & fl b r. h.

LOUIS (UPI) - While the heat and humidity had caddies bickering, young Rick Massengale kept his cool to claim a share of the lead with veteran Bob Goalfcy going into today's second round of the $210,000 St. Louis Golf Classic. Looking like a model for golfing wear, the 26-year-old Texan fired a five-belaw-par 65 Thursday to keep up with local favorite Goalby, who was among the early finishers spared the afternoon heat. "I'd have to be rated the underdog," said Massengale, who has never finished higher than sixth in three years on the pro tour. Goalby has won tournaments and he's won money every year. Having Won only $9,529 so far this year, Massengale's blue eyes widened and he flashed a toothy grin as he thought of the possibilities. "I'm right below the 100 mark on the money list each week," he said. "I could stand the $42,000 prize for this one."
