DALLAS (AP) -- A secret admirer of New York Mets owner Joan Payson now has a baseball team to call her own. Sharon Simons, wife of wealthy Dallas investor-real es- :ate developer Pollard Simons, became a major Texas Ranger shareholder this week. Mrs. Simmons was among Dallas-Fort Worth group :hat purchased 90 per cent of the Rangers from Bob Short for an estimated $9 million. She joins Mrs. Payson of the Mets as the only woman to own a large portion of a major league baseball franchise. "I take it (baseball) very se riously," said Mrs. Simons, whose voice was hoarse Thursday after attending two Ranger games this week. "I get pretty excited and when the players deserve it, I yell and clap." Mrs. Simons said her husband was approached first as a possible partner in the team, and his reply was, "Sharon's the one who's a baseball fan; you should go ask her.". Simons first learned of his wife's love of baseball in 1951. when he asked his new bride what she would like to do more than anything and was surprised when she answered "Let's get to the World Series. She got so excited at the Yankee-Dodger games that she developed an ulcer. Mrs. Simons was not shocked or embarrassed Wednesday when her players emptied the bench for an on-field brawl with the Cleveland Indians. "1 think when you get two teams whose players are loyal to one another and tempers flare, some fights are going in happen," she said. .^^·---- HEAVY DUTY MUFFLER Fint-roond scons Ttvmaxr in On S350. 000 K«m9*r Open G«K TMmwmtnt en the 7,«B.}arcI, par 3W7--TJ Wail HoOoir Country ctub ooun« 0*4eoottf wnatenr) Tom Watson Bruce Grampian Bob Menne Bert Yancey Lanny Wadklos Ray Floyd Kermit Zariey Hubert Green EdSneed John Jacob!
