Northwest Arkaniai TIMES, Sun., Aug. 11, 1974 FAY«TT»VILL«, AHKAN»»« ' Yankee Glamour Players Included New Hall Of Famers Picked COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -- Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford, the glamour players of New York aYnkee teams in the 1950s and 'GOs, will be enshrined in baseball's Hall of Fame Monday. The quiet surroundings of this upstate village may be foreign to the former stars, svho spent so much time before screaming throngs ut Yankee Stadium. But a crowd of 10,000 strong--four times the population of this village--will cheer as the long-time buddies who rewrote New York's record books will be immortalized in colorful ceremonies outside the historic museum. Umpire Jocko Conlan and James "Cool Papa" Bell, called by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn "the fastest man ever to play New Mexico Golfer Earns U.S. Junior Girls Title PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -New Mexico golfer Nancy Lopez, her game in top form, rolled easily past Lauren Howe Saturday to claim her second championship in three years at the U. S. Junior Girls Tourna mcnl. The 17-year-old from Roswell took command fro mthe outset and shot two under par to win, 7-and-5. She mixed 11 pars with two birdies for the 13-hole match at Columbia-Edgewaler Country Club. Miss Howe, a 15-year-old from Colorado Springs, Colo., appeared nervous at the start and bogied the first three holes. Miss Lopez sank a birdie at the [ifth hole, pushed her lead to [our strokes and never looked back. She was five ahead at the iurn and won the 10th and 13th holes with a birdie and a par to wrap things up. At the tenth, a 449-yard par five, she hit two fine wooc shots and landed her seconc one ten feet from the cup. Then she two-putted for a birdie. Miss Lopez said afterward,"It means a lot to me to win this tournament a secern time. Lauren has two more years to play In It and I hope that she can win it, too. She should have a good chance." baseball," also will be inducted. The two olher stars of yesteryear will be Inducted posthumously. Hard-hitting first baseman "Sunny" Jim Bol- omley played with the SI. Cardinals and Cincinnati ieds in the 1920s and 1930s, and Sam Thompson compiled a career batting average of .336 with pre-1900 clubs. Bottomley vill be represented at the ceremonies by his widow, Thompson by his nephew. Ford, a left-handed pitcher, and Mantle, a long-ball hitting outfielder, set a number of official baseball records and one unofficial standard--they drew two short, coherent sentences of praise from former manager Casey Stengel. Stengel, known for his rambl ing dissertations on any topic at all, paused when asked about two of hi sgreatest all- time players. "I'm tickled to death they're in," the 84-year-old Stengel said. "They were outstanding." Ford won 236 and lost 106 of his regular season games for a .690 per centage and a 2.74 career earned run average. His winning per centage still tops hurlers with over 200 decisions, and his 332-3 consecutive score less innings of World Series pitching also remains -a record The switch-hitting Mantle cracked 536 home runs and drove 1,509 runners home over 8 injury-plagued years in New r'ork. He still holds many of .he regular season and World Series records which brought lim election to the Hall in his Irst year of eligibility. Conlan was playing for the Chicago White Sox in a double- leader against the St. Louis Browns in 1935 when umpire Smmctt Ormsby was overcome jy the heat of a July afternoon. Sidelined at the time by. a sprained thumb, Conlan volun- .cored to lake over for Ormsby. :n those days Iwo umpires--not 'our--officialed games. After that season, umpiring became full-time work for the diminutive Conlan. and 30 years later, Cooperslown beckoned. No real records exist in Bell's case, but his greatness approaches folklore in Negro League history, "They didn't keep that good records then," the 71-year-old former speedster says. But he stole 175 bases during the 200- game 1933 season and hit .480 in another during a 29-year career with clubs in the Negro Leagues, California Winter League, Mexican League, Cu ban League and in the Domini can Republic. Originally a right-handed bat ter. Bell taught himself to be a switch-hitter. Bottomley balled in 12 runs on six hits in six at-bals for the Cardinals to scl a major league record in a 1V-3 triumph over he Brooklyn Dodgers on Sepl 16, 1924. In 1,991 pro games, Bottomley hit .310. He died in 1959. . Thompson's career ended in 1899, although he returned to iction for eight games with the Detroit Tigers at age 46 in 1906 o fill a vacancy on the roster His 128 home runs stood as the major league career record un til Rogers Hotnsby surpassec that mark in 1924; He twice hit .400 for a season patting .406 for the Nationa ^eague Detroit franchise in 1887 and .404 for the Phila delphia Phillies in 1894.
