Anyone wishing information regarding t h e league may call the Youth Center. The deadline (or registration Is May 15. "I want to meet with Hank on it first and talk about it. but we should have something to say at least within the next 10 days," Bartholomay said. It, has been speculated that Aaron will remain with the club a hitting instructor for young players and in a public relations capacity. Regarding that speculation, Bartholomay said, "You arc in the right area. Of course Hank has some other things going for him, too." The National League baseball star is in the first year of a five-year, $1 million contract with the Magnovox Corporation. Aaron insists that 1974 will be his final season as a player, although he is among the Nation al League home run leaders with seven while playing on a limited basis. "I still like the guessing game between myself, the jitcher and catcher," he said. "I still like to play. But I'm so tired of all the travel, the living out of a suitcase. And. I've got some kids I wants to watch grow up." HILDEBRANDTS \ AT YOU* watt* snte America's mort popular Sinner*. Standard -Sinab t Ooutjte. ' Idaho-suite doubts Jig--Sinifeind Turin.

But to Don Sutton. it must have seemed like a 600-foot home run. "I really wanted to pitch no-hitter." said Sutton. who pitched the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-0 victory over the San Diego Padres Thursday night. "But I can't complain about the hit Grubb got tonight. I threw him a change-up and ht did what a good hitter should do--he hit middle." up the Elsewhere in the major leagues, the Kansas City Royals downed the Texas Rangers 6-1: the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston Astros 4-1; the Chicago Cubs trimmed the Atlanta Braves 3-1. and the Boston Red Sox blanked the New York Yankees 2 0 .

NBA-ABA Players Outraged At Arbitrator's Decision To Prevent All-Star Game League Leaders NEW YORK (AP) -- National Basketball Association players involved have expressed "outrage"' over an arbitrator's decision against permitting them to participate in a scheduled all-star game against the American Basketball Association, says Larry Fleisher executive director of the NBA Players Association. "All of the players involved are shocked by the- callous approach by owners in attempting to stop the game for whatever personal .or presumed business reasons they have," Fleisher said Thursday after arbitrator Peter Seitz ruled that participation by,NBA players would be in violation of their contracts. League Commission Walter Kennedy also announced that Seitz had found that by organizing and planning the game, scheduled for May 18 in Providence, R.I., the NBA Players Association had violated its col- msmmmm lective bargaining with the league. agreement American League BATTING (65 at bats)-Carew.

Fleisher said after the ruling he had called player representatives and players who in turn had made appeals to club owners and to the league, to no .vail. "The players expressed sur- prise that owners would attempt to deprive 15 to 20 million fans from watching the game on TV, second, prevent Providence fans from watching the game. and. most importantly, deprive the benefi ciarics oi the charities involved from Hie benefits Ihe game would provide. "The league said it was up lo Ihe owners and calls to owners told us t h n t it was a league matter," Fleishcr continued. Fleisher said both the Players Association and the N T RA had argued their positions before Seitz and that the decision was binding. The NBA and ABA players had played two /ill-star games in Ihe past, but did not meet last year. This year's game was to be nationally televised from each league, with proceeds going to charity. In Atlanta, Prentiss Yancy, general counsel of the ABA's Players Association; said, his group was disappointed with the NBA decision. "I think it's unfortunate." Yancy said. He added t h a t the ABA players still were prepared to take part in the contest if the NBA managed to resolve its problems. The loss dropped Texas .003 percentage points behind Chicago and into a tie for second with Califortu'a. PIRATES 4. ASTROS 1 Jim Rooker's hitting got in Ihe way of his pitching Thursday night. He doubled in the eighth inning and s c o r e d on Rennie Stennett's single to f i n - ish the Pirates' scoring and bring his record to 2-2. Hooker, who struck out four and walked four before Dave Giusti came on to face the Astros in the bottom of the eighth, said, "I got tired after doing all that running in the eighth inning." CUBS 3, BRAVES 1 Shortstop Craig Robinson's throwing error on a seventh-inning double play enabled the Chicago Cubs to score a pair of runs and defeat Atlanta. Rick Rcuschel pitched a four- hitter. Until the seventh, the game's only run was set up by home run king Hank Aaron's first sto- en base of the season. Aaron, who had a season-high of 31 bases in 1963. totaled only six in the past three years. Lockman said he wouldn't have been embarrassed if the final score were 1-0. "but I'd nave been damned angry. Sure I know he's 40 but he's still a groat ballplayer."
