Story Of Cazz/e ftusse/l- From Baseball To The Court MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wis- cansm was expected to begin prosecuting its antitrust suit against baseball today as the trial moved into phase No. 3 following a rapid series of developments that brought the case sharply into focus. • The state planned to begin introducing testimony and questioning witnesses in an attempt to prove that baseball violated Wisconsin's antitrust statues by moving the Braves from Milwaukee to Atlanta. It was not known what witnesses might be called but it was learned that Bill Veeck. a former secretary-treasurer for the Braves, has been subpoenaed to testify. The way was cleared Tuesday for th^ trial to proceed when legal fencing over 1SS documents the move of the Braves was authorized by the National League because of poor fan support, financial losses and a hostile press. Willard Stafford, special counsel for the state, countered in the case." his opening statement that the Braves were moved because "some young men borrowed too much money and had to make money in a hurry to stay in baseball." He said he was asking Circuit Judge Elmer W. Roller to order man Act the Braves returned to Milwaukee "screaming or otherwise," unless or until the National League assigns a new franchise to the city. Stafford also said he would ask the court to find that the antitrust law s have been violated by the National League and had ordered the Braves to play C^ 0 ^n Kramer's tankers catch with a baseball at Ctuca- the ^^eason inAUantaIn ^ve taken fiv e consecutive Dis-!s° s Carver High School when the 1966 season in Atlanta, fa,^ ^^ ^ ^ ^ fa ^jLany Hawkins spotted him. ^ ^ ^ _^^ process of trying for a sixth.!

Mathews can't wait to start swinging. Mantle will have to. The Atlanta Braves welcomed Mathews at their West Palm Beach, Fla., camp Tuesday anc the 34-year-old third baseman promised to be in playing shape before the end of the week. "I just need to run for a few days and get tuned up a little bit, and I'll be ready to go," said the left-hand power hitter, who stands sixth on the all-time home run list with a total of 477. Mantle, seven days younger than Mathews and four homers behind the Braves' veteran, arrived at the New York Yankees' base at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., signed his fourth consecutive 5100.000 contract and then cast a shadow over the homecoming party. "I don't know if I can start the season," he said, explaining that his recent operation was more intricate than had been believed. Mantle said surgery on his right shoulder, performed Jan. 25 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Minn., involved inflamed tendons as well as the removal of a bone chip. "It'll take longer to get in shape than if it were just a bone chip," the injury-plagued star continued. "But, if I hadn't had the operation, I could not have played." He said he hopes to be able to play by the end of the training season. While Mantle's extended absence dampened Yankee pros-, pects for a comeback from last year's sixth-place finish in the American League, Minnesota's AL champions were heartened fay the apparent resurgence of second baseman Bemie Allen. The former Purdue quarterback, who lost his second base job two years ago when sidelined by knee troubles, has been the early surprise of the Twins camp. He credits a winter conditioning program for strength- j ening the knee, which was operated on last year, and hopes to regain his 1962 form, when he hit .269 for Minnesota. The Giants signed first baseman Willie McCovey to an estimated $40,000 contract, leaving Ditchers Juan Marichal and Bob Shaw, and outfielder Jesus Alou outside the fold Ken Harrelson signed with the Athletics and Manager Alvin £>ark set goals of 30 home runs and no R.BI for the big first baseman. The Red Sox announced the signing of four slayers, including outfielder Yastrzemski, while the Orioles were cheered by the arrival of outfielder Boog Powell, who reported at a trim 241 pounds.
