KtPUBLIC CITY 4& The Arizoim {republic SO Phoenix, Wed., Jtrae 17,1970 out- The maladroit Mel Famee THERE ARE SOME inherent evils in this 1970 method of selecting major league baseball's all-star teams. Today, aid is being solicited to amend a true injustice. If an official 7%-inch by 3^-inch All-Star Ballot is within reach, perhaps you'll help. The ballot totally omits Mel Famee. Perhaps you overlooked Mel's moment. Several did. Small for his size, Mel Famee was 5-10, 155, an outfielder who had never hit well but was poor defensively. Recently, you may recall the Milwaukee Brewers were in severe straits (a small town near Green Bay). They needed pitching help, and summoned bodies from the minors. Cubs bury Salt Lake SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Tacoma burst loose with nine runs in the fifth inning and walloped Salt Lake City, 13-0, before 4,062 Dairy Night fans in a Pacific Coast League game last night. The Cubs sent 14 men to the plate in the fatal fifth. Key blows during the inning were home runs by Jim Saul and Don Wilkinson. Saul's drive was a solo blast leading off the inning, and Wilkinson collected his later with two mates on base.

M. - Arizona State University entrants broke even in four singles matches yesterday and won a doubles set in the Women's National Collegiate Tennis Championships. Barbara Wroten defeated Cathy Beene, Lamar, 7-5, 6-3, and Pam Richmond beat Jan Hasse, California State, 6-4, 6-2. Alice Valentine lost to Vickie Smouse, USC, 6-0, 6-1, and Carol Bailey lost to Mari- caye Christenson, USC, 6-3, 6-0. In doubles, the Bailey-Valentine team beat Nffla Shelton and Sally Ellis, Pine Manor JC, 6-0, 6-1. Famee was among those promoted. The fact he had never pitched and had a history of unruly cuticles deterred neither the Brewers nor Famee. He was immediately thrust into a dangerous situation (created by the fact that EVERY Milwaukee Brewer situation is dangerous, and quitted himself questionably. Milwaukee writers already were hailing him as a potential hero—a sort of majestic cross between a resistable force and a movable object. Famee was in trouble in the opening inning of his first game, but settled down considerably after returning to the dugout to get his glove. Famee walked the first two batters he faced, but threw four consecutive balls to the third one. He called timeout to alert the catcher that the bases were loaded. Then he walked in three rur»s. It .was 0-3 against Milwaukee after an inning, and Famee caused some raised eyebrows when he tripped over the third base line en route to the mound for inning No. 2. His first pitch sailed into centerfield. Working more rapidly, Famee walked one batter on only two pitches. He loaded the bases once again. Then twice again. After scattering a double in the third, Famee yielded a three-base triple and a standup single in the fourth, plus seven walks. Mel Famee decidedly was in trouble. Suddenly he strode purposefully from the mound, made his way to the clubhouse, reached the parking lot and left in a huff (a small Polish sports car). He had issued a total of 19 walks in four innings. Some two hours later, the opposing team was en route to the airport when its bus passed an overturned car in which Mel Famee lay snoring peacefully, his arms cradling a case of Schlitz. The team's manager investigated, then summoned his players to the scene. "Men," he intoned, "this is the beer that made Mel Famee walk us." Mel's abbreviated brush with stardom is often overlooked.
