Williams' Plans Go Awry Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., July 24, 1974 FAYrrHVILH, ARKANSAS ^ 15 Stars Change Tune P1TTSBUHGH (AP) - Yogi Bcrra,' who had little to say about the matter beforehand, observed with his usual wisdom that "we were out to win, too." Dick Williams, who before had a lot to say about the Importance of a victory, 'muttered, "So what." Reggie Jackson said the same thing. Their tune had changed after Berra's National League All- Stars beat Williams' American League All-Stars V-2 Tuesday night. The American League, from President Lee MacPhail to Manager Williams, made a big thing before the 45th All-Star Game of winning at all cost. MacPahil went as far as strorfgly urging that no American League All-Star pitcher work last Sunday to be ready for the Nationals. The National League i Match Sold Out BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Lobsters have sold out their match against the Philadelphia Freedoms. The Lobsters are the first team in World Team Ten nis to sell out 10 days before a match. :onspicuous by its' silence jefore the game. But Berra's ;ang spoke lourfly during it with heir bats, defense and pitching. And when it was over it was he same old story. Three National League wins in a row, 11 of the past 12. Williams had promised to keep his best players in the game, even if some others didn't play. He had a few oroblems keepiirg his word. Two of his brightest offensive stars, first baseman Dick Allen and second baseman Rod Carew, played 2 1-2 innings each. Williams explained that Allen fouled a ball off his ankle and Carew was "banged up a little" in a third inning slide at second. "I'm not going to take a chance on injuring someone else's player." Williams said. Berra made only two substi tutions through the first five innings. "It was still close,' said Berra, whose team led 4-2 after five. "I kept checking on Steve Garvey's ear infection," Berra said, referring to the Los Angeles first basemaivwho was selected the game's Most Valu able Player. "I would like to manage this team," he gloated. 'I could be a push button manager.' . '. ' Reggie Smith, a two-time American League All-Star now with the National League St. Cardinals, said.the Nationals were faster and play m o r e , aggressive baseball. Smith hit the game's only home run. Jackson, who polled 3.5 million votes, the highest ever in All-Star balloting, took the defeat lightly. "We got beat, so what?" said Ihe outfielder, who went O-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts. Williams said the string ol setbacks didn't prove National League superiority, and utterec a so what, too. The 25-year-old Garvey was i starling position on the AM- llar team. He rewarded his .083,489 backers by earning the IVP award. "I can't express in words hem?ejves my thanks to the leople who got me here,' iarvey said. "H's not my trophy,. it's .heirs," said Garvey after accepting the award.

For a busman's son, it was a dream come true. "The seeds were planted when I was four, five and six," ' s a i d Steve Garvey of the Los Angeles Dodgers, named the '. Most Valuable Player in Tuesday night's All-Star Game alter leading the National League to a 7-2 victory over the American ' League. "My father drove 'Â· the team bus for the Dodgers in spring - training and I got to know them all -- Gil Hodges, Carl Furillo, Roy Campanella, Don Drysdale Â· and Sandy Koufax. .. "They all were All-Stars and I always hoped that someday I'd be one. Gil Hodges was my idol and here I was playing his position in the All-Star Game.' Garvey's name didn't even appear on the computer ballot for this 45th All-Star Game, but the nation's fans responded with more than one million write-in votes to make him the starting first baseman. Garvey responded to that by delivering two key hits and a sparkling defensive play during a full nine-inning stint as the National League continued its dominance over the American, winning its llth game in the past 12. The NL now leads the series 26-18-1 after being behind 12-4.- Five NL pitchers held the American to four hits, causing losing Manager Dick Williams to lament: "You can't do much with four hits." G a y 1 o r d Perry, starting pitcher for the AL, retired the first five NL batters before Garvey singled in the second. Dodgers teammate Ron Cey then drove in Garvey with a double- In the third inning .G-arvey made a brilliant hand stab of Bobby Murcer's hot grounder to end the inning. The AL already had two runs in that inning and two runners on base. , ' . In the fourth, with the Americans leading 2-1, Johnny Bench and Jimmy Wynn, another Dodger, singled. Garvey doubled in one run and Wynn later scored on Cey's groundout.

We weren't going to come lere. Instead we were going to Atlanta next weekend so we could see three games. But I told my wife that we only live once, let's go." It was one of the best trips ,he Garveys ever took. In the AL dressing room Williams said: "With a group like that -- Cey, Garvey, Wynn and Mike Marshall -- that's probably why the Dodgers are where they are." Marshall pitched the last two innings, after Messersmith, Ken Brett, Jon Matlack, and Lynn McGlothen. Brett,' the only Pittsburgh Pirate on the squad, was 'credited with the victory after working the fourth and fifth innings. ' Luis Tiant, who allowed two runs in the fourth inning, took the loss. The Nationals added an unearned riyi in the fifth on Joe Morgan's sacrifice fly, scoring Lou . Brock' who had singled; stolen second and moved to third on catcher Tliurman Munson's error. Reggie Smith homered in the seventh to make it 5-2 off Jim Hunter and Don Kessinger's triple in the eighth was the key blow as the NLmade it 7-2. The AL scored twice in the third inning . with Dick Allen driving in one run with a single. The. Chicago White Sox first baseman arrived less than 45 minutes before game time- ' "The game starts at 8:30. And game time is on time," said Allen, .who has a history of 'absences and tardiness and left.here after Z'A innings. So Allen put in little over an hour's work-apparently hating every minute of it. But Steve Garvey, the busman's son who always dreamed of his day in the limelight, was having the time of his life. JCPennev auto center store ** 25%off fiber glass belts.
