(AP>—The man who served up Bab* Ruth's last two home nin pitches during the Babe's record-setting 1905 season says the idea (hat modem-day pitchers would willingly help Henry Aaron break Ruth's homer mark "is not much short of a criminal act." Guy Bush, a feisty TO-year-dd. was irritated with weekend stories in which National League pitchers were quoted a* saying they wouldn't mind helping Aaroo break Ruth's 714-honver record, THE PITCHERS spoke of the monetary and publicity value of being the pitcher who threw No. 715 to Aaroo. the Atlanta stagger who LS closing in on Ruth's hallowed borne run mart They spoke of potential "eodorsemenis" and "speaking engagements,." Bush, off whom Ruth slugged homers 713 and 714 on May 25. JS05. says that's nonsense "ITS BEEN over 35 years since Ruth hit th^se homers off me," Bush said, "and t duo's remember being in demand as a speaker Nobody has rushed up giving me endorsements and I haven't seen one dime erf it." "I've never heard anything like what these pitchers are saying li'i jfefohilri) criminal If this happne*. I'll be iiJumed 1 cvw played the game."
