IQ.C—IUBBOCK AVALAKICHE-JOURNAU-. Friday Evening. April 4. 1975 Aaron Near Ruth's RBI Mark, 30 Shy Of Musial's Hit Record By The Associated Press I The start of-.tho 1975 baseball season will J>e like an instant: replay for home run king Himk Aaron, even though he's with a jiaw team in a new league. A year ago, Aaron started his final season with the National league Atlanta Braves gunning for Babe Ruth's 714 home' run record. lie tied that mark in the season's opening game and than shattered it a few days later. Now, playing for the American League Milwaukee Brewers, Aaron is after Ruth again and again, the record could come early in. the season. This time he needs just eight runs batted in tp surpass Ruth's all- time record.of 2,209. :: Aaron drove in .2,202 runs in his 21 seasons with the Braves, ImocMng in 90 or more in 16 of those years. The home run king also holds •a fistful of other records and with 3,600 hits is only 30 short of the No. 2 man, Stan Musial. Ty Cobb's 4,191 is the all-time record. Frank Robinson, baseball's first major league black manager, also has some interesting •targets to shoot for as he doubles as a designator hitter with ,he Cleveland/Indians. ;• Robinson needs 26 home ruijs (o reach 600-^a '"total reached only by Aaron, Ruth and Willie Mays. He also is exactly 100 ills short of ,3,(KX) for his career. If he manages that total; 10 would be the J3th man In history to achieve it. Lou Brock, who established a single season record with 118 stolen bases for St. Louis last season, now has 753 for his career. That's 139 away from Cobb's alltimo record of 892. 81-Year-Old Ranks As ^Super/an 5 CINCINNATI (AP) — When tlie Cincinnati Reds play Los Angeles on Monday, they will be marking the beginning of their 110th year in professional baseball. For half those years, Joe Anderson has been in the stands on opening day. "I've only missed tsvo opening days since 1910—1917 and 1918," Anderson said. "I was in tlic Navy." Although the American game o£ baseball is his first love, Anderson's, romance with sports began when lie was five years old in his native Brandon, in the Canadian province of Manitoba. "My dad took me to a soccer football game," he recalled. "I thought all players were saints." Anderson became a cigar ma- l;cr and moved to Boston where 1\c saw his first baseball game about 1907. Eventually, he settled in Indiana, but spent so many days on trains between Indianapolis .and Cincinnati that a friend said: "IE you're so nuts about the Reds, why don't you move there?" That was in 1910 and Anderson, who took the advice, has roamed no more. Now 83 years old and retired, it gives him more o[ a chance tp be a superfaji. He likes them all—pro football, soccer, hockey and he lias a fondness for high school football and basketball. •"The pros are pretty much tiie same thing." he said. "Too perfect. With the kids in high school, you never know what's going to happen." •Newspapers, radio and television keep him informed on everything he needs to know about his world, his only world. Sports has always come first With him. I" I'm too interested in sports," he said, "I was very close to marriage once. Then she told me she hated sports."

Saturday. 1>e finals'are scheduled for ]ate Saturday. California pitcher Nolan Ryan has a shot at two records. He will be after his fourth career no-hitter, a feafc managed only by hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, and he will be trying to become the first pitcher in history to strike out 300 or more batters in four consecutive seasons. Another pitcher, Torn Seavor of the New York Mets, became the first National League hurler to record seven consecutive 200- strikeout seasons when he reached that total in his final 1974 start/That tied him for the major league record with Walter Johnson and Rube Waddel this year. Bob Gibson, starting what he says will be his final season of pitching for St. Louis, ranks second in career strikeouts with 3,057, trailing, only Johnson's 3,508. With 248 victories, Gibson is the winningest active hurler and his 5G career shutouts give him the lead among active pitchers in that department too. Two American League pitchers, Detroit's Mickey Lolich and Gaylord Perry of Cleveland, are also close to important plateaus. Lolich, with 2,540 strikeouts, ranks seventh on the all-time list and can pass both Bob Feller's 2,581 and Warren Spahn's 2,583 this season. Parry has 198 career victories and with two 'more, lie would join his brother, Jim, as a 200-game winner. No other pair of pitch-; ing brothers have achieved 200| victories each.
