PAfcB FOURTEEN ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, JULY 8,1963 NL All-Stars Tabbed Favorites Over AL CLEVELAND (API - Jin O'Toole of the Cincinnati Red was named today as the starling pitcher for the National League ii the Baseball All-Star game? Tuesday. Manager Alvin Dark made the announcement. Ralph Mouk, manager of the American League team, said he was undecided about the Anieri can League starter. He said li would be either Ken McBride o: tx>s Angeles or Jim Sunning oi Detrblt. "I'll talk to McBride and Bun tting as .soon as 1 can," Houk said;- '"ahd if both are ready I'l start Bunning." Houk said he thought it was only fair to talk to the pitchers first before making up his mine between the two. "I have to fine out whether either has developed a kink In his arm or something,' he said. Meanwhile, both line-ups were named. Houk listed Oils batting order for the American League: Nellie Fox, Chicago, 2b Ablie Pearson, Los Angeles, cf Al Kaline, Detroit, rf Frank Malzone, Boston, 3b Leon Wagner, Los Angeles, If Earl Battey, Minnesota, c Joe Fepitone, New York, Ib Zollo Versalles, Minnesota, ss McBride or Bunning, p The National League line-up: Tommy Daws, Los Angeles, If Dick Groat, St. Louis, ss Bill White, St. Louis, Ib Willie Mays, San Francisco, cf Hank Aaron. Milwaukee, rf Ken Boyer, St. Louis, 3b Ed Bailey, San Francisco, c Julian Javier, St. Louis, 2b Jim O'Toole, Cincinnati Houk said he could not decide his pitching rotation after the starter. Bunning, a 31-year-old right- hander won Sunday over Kansas City 5-1, to raise his season mark to a so-so 6-9, but he has been something special in All-Star Games. In the last two years he has pitched brilliantly in previous All-Star games. Bunning, however, pitched nine innings Sunday and Houk has hinted he may go with Boston's Bill Monbouquette. Monboucniette lost in relief Sunday, but piU-hed only four innings and Houk said "it wasn't enough to trouble him." Five of the American League's so.ven All-Star pitchers worked Sunday and only Jim (Mudcat) Grant of Cleveland is fully -pstcd. While both are determined toi win. the rival managers apprwn-hj and was not clue to arrive in per-|this game with different atttt-idcs. has allowed only one hit and no runs in eight innings against the National League. McBride. a 27-year-old right- hander, is 9-6 on the year. O'Toole, a 26-year-old right- hander, is 13-6 witli the Reds this year and has a 2.01 earned run average. Houk made his announcements In person. Dark's announcement was made for him since the San Frnnclco manager had a late doubleheader—one game went 15 innings—with the St. Louis Cards son until 6 p.m.. EST. A crowd of about 50,000 is expected, largest since 55,105 in Los Angeles watched the Americans defeat the Nationals 5-3 in the second of two games in 1959. The game is scheduled to begin at noon (EST) and will be carried by NBC radio and television. The game will mark the return to one All-Star game after four years of doubles. Despite its recent defeats, the American League holds a 17-15-1 edge in HIP series dating back to 1933. Tills will be the first game at Cleveland since 1951 when Ihe Americans won, 11-9, on a bases filled bloop single by Nellie Fox. Hie veteran Infielder will be the American League's starting second baseman again Tuesday. Managers Alvin Dark and Ralph louk, who will be master-mind- ng the rival forces, will not announce their batting orders and starting line-ups until 24 hours be- ore game time. However, it was expected that Dark, mindful of the four left- landed hitters in the American ^ague's starting line-up, would name Jim O'Toole, Cincinnati's 3-game winning southpaw. Houk, also playing the percentages, will select a right-hander to ippose the predominantly right- landed hitting National League quad. The Yankee skipper origi- lally had leaned to Jim Bunning, Detroit's right-handed ace who If they stick to their original Intentions, Dark will keep his barters in the game as long af. possible while Houk will rnak'.' wholesale substitutions as soon as it is legally permissible. The Nationals boast a glittering outfield comprised of Tommy Davis, the league's leading hitter, Hank Aaron, the No. 1 man in homers and runs batted in, and Willie Mays, perhaps baseball's best all around performer. Kd Bailey. San Francisco's left- handed hitting catcher and an all- St. Louis infield of Bill White. Julian Javier, Dick Groat and Ken Boyer, complete the starting lineup. Javier replaces Pittsburgh's Bill "Mazeroski, who had to withdraw because of an injured leg. Also on the NL squad will be Stan Musial, who will be appearing in his 24th consecutive All- Star game. The Americans will open with Los Angeles' Leon vVagner, their No. 1 batter, in the outfield, along with teammate Albie Pears->n and Detroit's Al Kaline, who is hobbling with an injured leg. Pearson replaces Mickey Mantle, the player's No. 1 choice for centerfield, who has been sidelined w'th a foot fracture. Joe Pepitone. another Yankee, opens at first base, with Fox at second. Boston's Frank Malzone at third, Minnesota's Zoilo Versalles at short and the Twins' Earl Battey behind the plate.

(AP)—Two months ago Jack (Doc) Kearns, one of the most fabulous characters oi boxing's golden era in the 1920s, said from a hospital bed: "Tell the mob I'll be back soon. I think I'll beat the count." Sunday the man who manage: Jack Dempsey to the heavyweighl championship and who is credited with bringing the first million dollar gate to boxing by making it possible for women to attend Billie Jean Beaten by Miss Smith WIMBLEDON, England (AP)— Margaret Smith became the first Australian to win the women's tennis title at Wimbledon today when she defeated giant-killer Billie Jean Moffitt of Long Beach, Calif. 6-3, 6-4. The triumph by the large Sydney girl, who was upset in the first round by Miss Moffitt a year ago, foiled a sweep of the singles titles by the resurgent American fights without any social stigma, died at the age of 80. "The last words my father spoke were, 'We have to get ready and get on the ball and go to Nevada,' " said Jack Kearns Jr. at whose home the old promoter died. He explained his father planned to establish a health center in Nevada and promote boxing there. "His body just wore out," the younger Kearns said. "In two months confinement to bed he kept arguing with doctors that he had to be up and doing. He had the active mind and sense of humor of a young man." Funeral services for the fabulous {earns who. in addition to Dempsey managed Mickey Walker, Joey Maxim and Archie Moore to world championships, will be held Wednesday afternoon in the Philbrick Chapel in Coral Gables. "I am .sorry to hear it," Dempsey said in New York when informed of Kearn's death "but we had been expecting it.

(AP) — The comeback with which the girl called Dimples won the Lady Carling Easteni Open Golf Tournament Sunday didn't surprise those who know her. The real comeback for 22-year- old Shirley Englehorn was the one she made two years ago with an assist from Ben Hogan. Miss Englehorn was just getting the hang of professional golf when she suffered head injuries and a broken back in an accident. She spent weeks in St. Joseph's Hospital at Augusta, Ga., unable to walk. When the greats of men's golf began arriving in Augusta for the 1961 Master's Tournament, Hogan was told of the youngster in the hospital. He dropped in for a visit and urged Shirley, with the voice of experience, to fight her way back into the game. Miss Englehorn's recovery from then on was steady. She rejoined the Ladies' PGA tour last year. The feature of her play was the winning of the first Lady Carting last year. To repeat Sunday, she had to come from four strokes behind Kathy Whitworth of Jal, N.M., after losing her first-round lead with a seemingly disasterous 79 Saturday. The girl from Caldwell, Idaho, caught Miss Whitworth on the 10th hole, then outgunned Joanne Gunderson, the Women's National Amateur champion, in a head-to head duel for the rest of the round. Big Weekend hi Racing Chateaugay, Candy Spots, Crimson Satan, Admiral's Voyage and other thoroughbred stars will gallop after more than half a million dollars in purses next Saturday— the richest day of the year for the horses. Six major stakes are on tap, three of them worth $100,000 in added money — the Hollywood Gold Cup at Hollywood Park, the Monmouth Handicap at Monmouth Park, and the American Derby at Arlington Park. Thrown in for good measure are the $7Tv 000 Dwyer Handicap at. Aqueduct, the $50,000 Oak's at Delaware Park, and the $25,000 Detroit Sweepstakes at Detroit. John W. Galbrrath's Chateaugay, for instance, is wavering between the Dwyer and the American Derby. Both arc for 3-year- olds at 1!4 miles. If trainer Jimmy Conway and Galbrealh don't like the Aqueduct pounds, they'll probably fly their Kentucky Derby and Belmont winner to Chit-ago for another crack at Rex Ellsworth's Candy Spots, the Preakness winner. Each gets 126 pounds in the American Derby. A GOLFER NOW NEW YORK (tf)-Lou Little, who coached Columbia football teams for 26 years, still gets around to football games in season but in the summer he spends a go«j deal of time golfing, Washington, coming on under new pilot Gil Hodges, took a doubleheader from the Los Angeles Angels, 7-3 and 6-4. The Angel losing streak stretched to eight, one shy of the team record. The league-leading New York i Yankees split a doubleheader with ; the Cleveland Indians, losing 11-3 and winning 7-4 in 10 innings, on Yogi Berra's double and some sloppy Indian fielding. That left the Yanks five games in front in the American League at the All-Star break. The Chicago White Sox were second, after they scratched out a 4-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox in 12 innings. In other games, Baltimore beat Minnesota 4-3 and Detroit and Kansas City split, the Tigers winning the opener 5-1 and the A'i the second 8-7. The Red Sox, Twins and Orioles were all six games back, in that order on percentage points. The Indians blew the second game against the Yankees, after Jack Kralick breezed to his ninth victory in the first game, backed by homers by Max Alvis, Al Lupow and Joe Azcue. The White Sox wasted a superb pitching effort by Hoyt Wilhelm, the 39-year-old knuckleballer making his first start in two years. He went nine innings, gave up only three hits—two of them dubious—but two errors and a misjudged double allowed the Red Sox to tie the game 1-1 in the ninth. Mike Hershberger singled and Nellie Fox doubled in the 12th for the victory. The hits came off Boston ace Bill Monbouquette and the win went to Juan Pizarro, his llth. The Athletics ruined Frank Lary's return to the big leagues after a spell in the minors working his sore arm into shape. Lary was breezing along until the seventh when Ken Harrelson knocked him out with a homer that cut the Detroit lead to 4-3. The A's went on for seven runs in the inning. Bushy's Wins Own Softball Tourney, 10-6 WOOD RIVER — Bushy's won its own invitational softball tourney Saturday night at the West End Diamond with a 10-6 decision over Rome Roys of Granite City. The hatting of Louie Mormino and Oracly Watkins plus the relief piti'hiii" of Jerry Voloski were Ihe '>-i\v factors in Bushy's victory. Miirmino readied base four times on two doubltis, u single mid n walk and each time he scored as Watkins slummed three homers mid n triple. Voloski relieved Downer in the second frame and held Rome Roys the rest of the way for Bushy's third victory in three games. Brighton captured the consolation game from South Roxana, 1810. Weidner was the winning pitcher as Brighton rocked the Roxana nine for 12 first-inning runs.

The Cards ended a string of eight straight losses by taking the second game at San Francisco 5-0. with 42-year-old Stun Musial supplying the batting fireworks and Bob Gibson the pitching. An error by Ken Boyer enabled the Giants to win the 15-inning open er '1-3. Also in the NL—the Pittsburgh Pirates battered the New York Mets Into their 10th loss In a row. 11-5, and Philadelphia edged the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on a ninth-inning inn produced on Ruben Amaro's triple and Cookie Rojas' pinch single. Koufax continues to rack up Impressive figures with his amazing pitching.

The 42-year-old master has allowed only one run In Ills last 37 innings—In a 16 inning, 1-0 loss at San Francisco last Tuesday night. Musial, who smacked a two-run triple in the opener at San Francisco and collected four hits for the afternoon, broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning of the second game with his 472nd career homer, following Dick Groat's single. Jim Mart, Giant third baseman playing his first day In the ma jors, suffered a fractured left shoulder blade when hit by one of Gibson's pitches in the second game. Marichal drew a reprimand from umpire Al Barlick and an automatic $50 fine when he zipped one near Gibson's head in the next inning. Gibson also clipped Orlando Cepeda with a pitch later in the game.

So on the 17th hole he almly sank a 15-foot putt for a birdie and won the $50,000 Canadian Open Golf Championship Saturday with a 72-hole final of 280, four under par. The 40-year old Yonkers, N.Y. pro heard on the 16th that Al Geiberger of Carlton Oaks, Calif, had finished with a six- tmder-par 65 for a 281. "I knew then what I hac to do," Ford said later. Adding a homey touch to the scene on the Scarboro Club course, Ford walked down the fairway to the 17th green holding the hand of his eight-year-olt daughter. After he curled in the 15-footer for his birdie he played it safe on the last hole. His second shot stopped only four feet from the hole. He made sure of a par 4 by nursing the ball to the edge of the cup and then tapping it in.
