King was named manager of the National League baseball club Wednesday only hours after Aaron said he woujd take the job if it were offered and expressed disappointment that the Braves' front office had not discussed it with him. "Hank is a man of stature, a Brave through and through after 20 years with the club,'' King said at a news conference called to introduce him as manager. "I know he will help me try to make this club win. He's ' that type person. "... I certainly don't think Hank is going to do or say anything to hurt himself, his team mates or me as mana'ger,' King said. "He has the pride and dedication to contribute ev ery ounce he can to helping us win--arid even get back into the pennant face." King said he would discuss the situation with Aaron, King replaced Eddie Math ews as the Brave pilot and in herited a club in fourth place ii the East Division,'14 games of the pace set by Los Angeles- Mathews was fired Sunda; after the Braves dropped foui straight at home to Pittsburgh and won only, one of their las seven 'games before the All-Sta break. · · King, manager of the San Francisco Giants in 1969 ant part of 1970, said his bigges problem right now is "rightin our club and to win, win, win- certainly not Hank Aaron.
