THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Friday, May Zf. If* PageB-3 Baltimore Is Running Behind On Attendance BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles are threaten* ing to uiake a runaway of the American League's Eastern Division pennant race but local fans aren't storming the gates of Memorial Stadium. So, what else is new in Baltimore? The Orioles open a nine-game road trip against the California Angels Friday night with statistics amazingly similar to 1969, when they won the division ti- toe by 19 games: -Their won-lost record of 32-13 is identical to last season's pace after the same number of games. -The turnstile count after 22 home games is 231,769, or just 698 above last year. The Orioles edged above the one million mark for home attendance last season on the final contest in Memorial Stadium, reaching 1,000,811. "I'm not ciying about the attendance," said Jerold C. Hoffberger, the Orioles' board chairman. "First off, you can't compare two seasons because of different teams in on different dates, a difference in the weather, and other factors. "All I know is that the Orioles are playing great baseball - they're the most exciting team in the majors-- and the people of Baltimore will want to come come out and see them. We'll According To Luby 500 Will Be Close Race INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) I figure 10 or 12 drivers are capable of winning the Indianapolis 500 this race, even though there are 33 guys right now who think they can win the race or else they wouldn't even be in the starting field. ButI really feel there are only 10 or 12 individuals who will be competitive as long as their equipment holds up. In that respect, I think my car is stronger than any car here. The guys I think will be competitive right from the start are Al Unser and his brother Bobby, who won the race in 1968; A. J. Foyt, a three-time winner at Indy and one of the sport's greatest competitors; Mario Andretti, last year's winner; Roger McCluskey; Joe Leonard, who still holds the track qualifying record; Gordon Johncock, Johnny Rutherford, Art Pollard and Dan Gurney. The Unsers, Foyt, Andretti and McCluskey always charge. They like to run up front and always make an effort to get there. I figure these guys will be fighting it out up front while I'm trying to get up there with them from 25th starting position. I'll tell you, I enjoy racing Al, A.J. and Roger any time, especially at Indy. I don't mind running with these three guys side by side flat out all day long. I have a lot of confidence in their ability. I think Leonard will be a factor this year. He has top equipment. Johncock hasn't done anything spectacular so far this month but he always comes on strong in the race. Rutherford is starting on the front row this time, but I really don't know what he'll do. Pollard could be a factor and it's hard to say what Gurney will do with the new equipment he brought this year. The worst problem I can foresee in the race is the guys whose equipment won't be capable of maintaining the pace. There's a tendency to overextend yourself when your equipment isnt up to it. That causes problems. You don't have to ask for trouble here. . . .you automatically get it. Without the experience of running in the oil after the track gets slick, many guys will McCoy Will Play LUBBOCK, Tex. (AP) Mike McCoy, Notre-Dame defensive tackle, will play for the East team in the Coaches All- America football game here June 27. find themselves in trouble real quick. But everybody has to run on the same race track and I dont mean to make bad remarks about rookies or guys with little experience getting in the way. The guys running in their second or third race are the same guys who will be running at the front in a few years. After all, the drivers starting up front Saturday are the same guys who were getting in everybody's way a few years back. I probably did it myself. Naturally, I didn't think so at the time. be ahead of last year's attendance before the year is out" The Orioles last season were the only team in the league to use the turnstile count, rather than the actual number of tickets sold. This season, they are releasing the ticket sale figure at the request of the league, but also continue to provide the turnstile count The ticket sale total is 255,460, or more than 1,000 above the turnstile count per game. Last season's actualy ticket sale was 1,062,094. "·We're certainly not discouraged at this point" said Bob Brown, the club's public relations director. "We have four major promotions next month which will deal in large numbers of people.'' Baltimore has topped the one million mark only six times in 16 years, with the high-water mark a modest 1,203,366 (turn, stile count) when the Orioles won their first pennant in 1966. Last season, with an attendance figure ridiculed by some in other cities, the Orioles showed a profit of $232,000 and paid their third dividend in history. The profit would have been $90,000 higher except for losses incurred by the now defunct Baltimore Bays soccer team, an Oriole subsidiary. The Orioles are making ends meet. Personality Will Run Jersey Race CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) Trainer John Jacobs doesn't feel he's overworking Preakness winner Personality or stable- mate High Echelon. Jacobs has entered the pair in Saturday's $100,000 added Jersey Derby at Garden State Park, the sixth start in eight weeks for the prize 3-year-olds. "They've held up very, very well," Jacobs said Thursday after Personality drew the No. 4 HIS CUP RUNNETH OVER--The winner's of the top athletic awards at the U. S. Naval Academy this year are shown exchanging notes. At left is Daniel L. Pike of DeQueen, Ark., and at right is Bert Freeman of Philadelphia. Pike, co-captain of the Navy football team in 1969, won the Thompson Trophy Cup, awarded to that midshipman "who has done the most during the current year for the promotion of athletics at the Naval Academy." Freeman, an Ail-American fencer, won the Naval Academy Athletic Association award, given "to the midshipman of the graduating class." (AP Wirephoto) Dave Hill Takes Early Lead In Thomas Open MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Brash Dave Hill ripped seven strokes off part in a string of six holes Thursday and charged into the first round lead in the $150,000 Danny Thomas. Memphis Open golf tournament with a stunning 63. The outspoken Hill, who has won here twice in the last three years, was seven under par on the short, 6,46-yard Colonial Country club course, which he calls his favorite on the tour. "Pro going to petition to have 'em play every tournament on the tour on this course," the slim, dark, 33-year«old Hill said. There's been only one lower score on the tour this year, a 61 by John Miller at Phoenix. "It's the greens," said Hill, winner of three tournaments last year. "I just putt these greens so good." He had seven birdies, an eagle and two bogeys, the latter when my favorite club, a six iron, spit at mo a couple of times." Hill, a 12-year veteran of the pro tour who came into his own last year when he won the Vardon Trophy and pulled down more than $150,000 in earnings, held a two-stroke lead over a trio headed by veteran Jack McGowan. McGowan, a dour little 39- year-old veteran, was tied at 65 with rookie Randy Wolff and young Hale Irwin, who lost to Billy Casper in a playoff for the title in the Los Angeles Open earlier (his year. Casper, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Player are not competing. The big group at 66 included Deane Beman, Grier Jones and Homero Blancas while Gene Littler, George Archer and Tom Shaw topped another big bunch at 67. The course, one of the shortest the pros play, took a beating with almost half the field beating par. But it snapped back at some of the top names. Lee Trevino managed only a 73 and must improve greatly to survive the cut when the field is trimmed to the low 70 scorers and ties for the final two rounds Saturday and Sunday. British Open champion Tony Jacklin had a 71, while Frank Beard and U.S. Open title-holder Orville Moody matched par 70. and High Echelon the No. l posts for the I 1 /; mile Jersey. "I haven't had any problems," Jacobs responded to a question on whether Personality and High Echelon weren't going to the post too often. The pair is slated for the Belmont Stakes June 6 in New York if they come out of the Jersey in good health. "I only worry about Saturday," said Jacobs when asked if he wasn't concerned about the Belmont, third jewel in racing's triple crown for 3-year-olds. "There is Sunday or Monday to worry about the Belmont," he said. So many things happen from day-to-day that you don't make any schedule for horses. They (horses) make the schedule. You go from Saturday to Saturday. If they're all right you run them. H not, you don't." Jacobs ran Personality and High Echelon as an entry in the Wood Memorial, Gotham, Kentucky Derby and Preakness. They are paired for the Jersey, and will be for the Belmont. After that, Jacobs plans to split them.- Personality probably will go to Chicago for the Classic and then to Hollywood Park while High Echelon is being pointed for the Leonard Richards at Delaware Park. Others in the field are Hagley, Corn off the Cobb, Silent Screen, Bold Day, Son Excellence and More Princely. Each will carry 126 pounds. If eight start, the gross value is $128,400, with $83,460 to the winner. The Personality - High Echelon entry is the 8-5 pre-race favorite, with Hagley second choice at 7-2, and Silent Screen third at 6-1. SHAMSKY OUT AT FIRST--New York Mets Art Shamsky (24) leaves both his hats behind Thursday as he attempts to beat the ball to first base in fourth inning of game against the St. Louis Cardinals at New York's Shea Stadium. But Cards second baseman Julian Javier scooped up Shamsky's grounder and got it to Cards* Richie Allen, right, in time for the out at first. St. Louis won, 9-2. (AP Wirephoto) On Hickman Home Run Cubs Edge Pirates, 8-7 CHICAGO (AP) - Jim Hickman's two-run homer in the ninth inning, his second of the game, gave the Chicago Cubs an 8-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday. Hickman's first two-run homer into the left field seats had tied the score at 6-6 in the seventh but the Pirates had recaptured the lead in the eighth on Matty Alou's single following a wild throw by Hank Aguirre, third Cub pitcher. Billy Williams singled with one out in the bottom of the ninth off Gene Garber and Hickman followed with his 10th homer of the season into the left field bleachers. Hickman has hit five home runs in the last six games. Cleo James of Chicago hit his first major league homer in the sixth inning of a see-saw game in which the Cubs came from behind three times to win. Bob Robertson homered for the Pirates in the sixth after starter Bill Hands hit Al Oliver with a pitch.

LaRussa, a second baseman recalled from the minors only last week, slammed his key hit to right field after a single by Felipe Alou and an intentional walk to Frank Fernandez, following a sacrifice. Dobson, 5-4, struck out three and didn't walk a batter. his third victory. He has lost twice. The Expos scored all three of their runs in the second inning off Phils' starter Grant Jackson.

Cesar Tovar drove in three more runs with his fifth homer in the third and George Mitter- wald chased in two more with a single and double.
