Norffiwesf Arfcansos TIMES, Thurs., July 25, 1974 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS After All-Star Break Baseball Wars To Resume WAL-MART DISCOUNT CITY Now that the All-Star Game is history, all the stars can get back to the business or settling the four division races in the remaining 10 weeks of the baseball season. That's 'just what I hey will start to do today as the major leagues resume where they left off Sunday with two new managers and a whopping 17-game schedule that includes f i v e twilight - night doubleheaclers. Jim Marshall deftuts as manager of the Chicago Cubs when they entertain the Philadelphia Phillies in an afternoon contest. ' Marshall replaces Whitey Lockman, who resigned Wednesday to devote full time to his other duties as ' vice president in charge of player development. Under the lights in Atlanta, Clyde King takes over as manager of the Braves against the San Diego Padres. King once managed the San Francisco Giants and lias been a special assistant to Eddie Hobinson, vice president of the Braves, for two years. Marshall, who managed for six seasons in t h e Cubs' farm system, was a Cub coach this year and Avas Lockman's own ihoice as his successor. Lockman was in his second full season after succeeding Leo Durocher in mid-1972. The Cubs, who traded away a number of veteran stars last winter, have a 41-52 record and arc f i f t h in the National League's East Division, seven games out of first place and just one-half game out of the cellar. Marshall was given a contract until the end of the season. King's contract also is until the end of the season. Robinson said that if a change is made next year, "Hank Aaron would be considered." Aaron, who has often said he tlocsn't want to manage, expressed resentment at the All- Star Game in Pittsburgh Tuesday night that the Braves had summarily ruled him out along with his brother, Tommie Aaron, manager of the Braves' Savannah, Ga., team in the Southern League. The Braves are fourth in the ML West, 14 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have a 5'/2-game lead over Cincinnati. Oakland leads the American League West by five games Johnny Unitas To Quit Football SAN DIEGO (AP) - "I hale to quit playing football," said Johnny Unitas. "I'd like to play for another 30 years. Your mind is willing but your body wears out." With those words Unitas, the quarterback w h o completed more passes and gained more yards through the air than anyone else in pro football history, announced h i s retirement Wednesday. Unitas pulled out of the sport at the age of 41 as he was going into his 19[h season. Playing another season, he told newsmen, would be "too much to ask of a pair of 98year-old legs" suffering from arthritis. "I'm taking up time on the field when it could be used for better purposes for the younger people," said Unilas, who was starting his second year with the San Diego Chargers since he left the Baltimore Colts. The National Football League star said he offered to stay and coach, but Coach Tommy Prolhro declined. The Chargers picked up Unilas a year ago*- when the Colts benched him as a starter after 17 years. San Diego paid $150.000 for the rights to negotiate with him, then signed him to a two-year contract report- edly paying $500,000. Unitas said Chargers owne Eugene Klein "said my con tract will be honored." Klein is sued a statement that made n mention of the contract bu praised Unitas as "the bes quarterback in the history the game." "I tried to workout four o five times . but my . knee swelled up and popped an were sore," he said. "It woul be foolish for me to try to d things I once tried to do." For the things he used to do the NFL, on its 50th anniversa ry in 19C9, named the ex-Un versily of Louisville player ii greatest quarterback ever The records set by Unila which still stand include th most passes attempted by a pr quarterback, 5,186; the mob completed, 2,830; the mos yards gained passing, 40,239 and the most touchdown through the air, 290. V V h e n the Chargers openec their training camp here thi year, Unitas was the only vel eran to cross the picket line o the NFL Players Association ChargeD veterans picketed ou side Hie camp as Unitas an nounced his retirement inside. "Football has given me ever opportunity I've ever had, Unitas said, ·cr the Chicago White Sox. The six teams in the AI.
