Three homers power Reds' win
WASHINGTON (W) - Willie'

rove in two runs as the Detroit
Tigers whipped the Washington'
Senators 5-0 behind Mickey Lo-
lich's seven-hit pitching yesterday
in the Americafn League's tradi-
tional baseball opener.

Willie Horton drilled a bases-
loaded double down the left line
to thrust the Tigers into a 2-0
lead in tie first inning and De-

runs off Washington's beleagured
relief pitching while Nixon watch-

Nixon missed 'the customary
Presidential pitch because of a
crucial Senate vote on his Su-
preme Court nomination of Judge
G. Harrold Carswell. He came 1%/
hours later after a victory in the
test vote. .
Rookie Cesar Gutierrez backedi
up Lolich by driving in t w o
runs and scoring two others.
The two teams just missed a
major league record for frustra-
tion by leaving 29 runners on base.!
The all-time high is 30.
The Senators loaded the bases
in the sixth with one out, but Lo-
lich stopped the threat by throw-
ing out one runner at the plate
and getting the next hitter to -pop

ilar uprising the next inning.

CINCINNATI (,,P)-Jim Merritt's
three-hit pitching and home runs
in the fourth inning by Lee May,
Bobby Tolan and Bernie Carbo
carried the Cincinnati Reds to a
5-1 victory over the Montreal Ex-
pos yesterday in the traditional
National League baseball opener.
An opening day crowd of 30.124
sat in damp, cold Crosley Field as
Merritt, who had a 17-9 'record
last year when he was the Reds'
top winner, mastered the Expos
while his teammates supported
him with an eight-hit attack that
included three home runs.

fourth inning as Lee May, Bobby
Tolan and Bernie Carbo connected
off Montreal starter Joe Sparma.
May's came with Johnny' Bench.

was the first of his major league
Merritt, meanwhile, had allowed
the Expos only one base runner,
isuing a walk to Bob Bailey in the
second inning. But Bailey was
thrown - out attempting to steal
and as Merritt went into the sev-
enth he had faced the minimum
number of batters.
Gary Sutherland fouled out for
the first 'out, then Rusty Staub
broke up Merritt's no-hit bid by
slamming a triple to right center
field. Staub immediately scored
when Ron Fairly looped a single
The only other hit off Merritt
was a ninth inning bloop single
to center by Sutherland.
The Reds picked up their final
run in the fifth inning on Pete
Rose's tripel and a sacrifice fly.
The Reds had a couple of mild
threats before their fourth inning
Rose had a double in the first
with two out but died on base.
He and Tolan also were left
stranded in the third after a sin-
gle, a force out and a walk.
The Reds' uprising in the fourth
was a combination of hitting
power, with a bit of help from the
Bench's double was a solid blast
and the homer by May boomed
over the scoreboard, across the
street and through a runway,
going under an expressway.
Carbo's homer was helped by
wind. Tolan's blast got some wind
help but it didn't need it.

RO "THE GREAT" AGNEW
on this and that
,and baseball cards
THE DAYS when the whole National League west of Phil-
adelphia could be had for a Mickey Mantle and a Yogi
Berra, and a Willie Mays was worth your choice of any twelve
cards in a packet as thick as two decks of playing cards are
gone forever but, I am happy to report, Topps bubble gum base-
ball cards still exist.
Of course, they've changed a little since I saw them last
about ten years ago, the most notable change being that the
piece of bubble gum is only about three-quarters its size during
the Yankee years of the early Fifties. There are also ten cards
for a dime now, instead of six for a nickel. And every package
comes with a paper fold-out of a major league star, probably to
compensate the consumer for the smaller tiece of bubble gum.
These changes though, haven't diminished the semi-
fanatical zeal of the 12 nd under set who collect the rec-
tangular pieces of cardboard. A lot of fads have come and
gone over the years, but baseball cards have somehow main-
tained their traditional appeal.'
It's easy to see why, too. A hoola hoop, for example, just
doesn't have the same sense of adventure that collecting baseball
cards does. Twirling a hoola hoop around your thighs just isn't
the same as flipping Cleon Jones and Pete Rose. The former
might be tintillating; the latter is more in the heart-stopping
Then, too, baseball cards have always been a good deal
more enlightening than the other fads. Where else can you
learn that Paul Casanova hit .274 with Buffalo of the Inter-
national League in 1968 with 23 hits in 84 at bats, or that
Blue Moon Odom was a four sport star in high school in
Georgia, and get a shrunken stick of bubble gum to boot.
If you're lucky enough to buy a pack with Earl Wilson in
it, you'll find out that Earl's 33 career homers are just four short
of the all-time mark for pitchers. The Paul Cassanova card
(No. 84 on your Topps first series check list) reveals that in '66
and '67, the Washington backstop led the league in doubleplays
for a catcher. That reptesents quite a step up in the world,
seeing as how in 1961, Cassanova was catching for the Indiana-
But collecting baseball cards wasn't all fun and games.
There was always the inevitable frustration in having seven
of the eight regulars in the Dodgers starting line-up, and
then buying about thirty seven packs of cards trying to get
the eighth, and winding up with ten face cards of Humberto
Robinson. It usually turned out that the only guy in the
neighborhood who had the missing card was the guy you
didn't pick in the stickball game the night before.
The kids who collected the cards didn't really mind the
frustration, though. It was all part of the game. In fact, no-one
really finds anything about baseball cards too objectionable. To
my knowledge, the radicals have yet to attack Topps as a cap-
italist enterprise, and the reactionaries have yet to attack base-
bal cards as corrupting the morals of America's youth by en-
couraging them to engage in flipping and matching.
I suppose that some day some sociologist is going to
come along and tell us that the continued appeal and pop-
ularity of baseball cards is related to some sort of under-
lying fantasy. But collectors of baseball cards, past and
present, know better. They know there's nothing fantastic
about trading the American League West for Cleon Jones
and Tom Seaver.
JULIE EISENHOWER looks on in amazement and awe as former
vice-president (and unsuccessful candidate for governor of Cali-
fornia) Nixon's son-in-law, David Nixon Eisenhower, throws out
the first ball of the 1970 baseball season. Showing their good taste,
the fans greeted Davey with a rousing chorus of boos which was
repeated when his semi-famous father-in-law arrived.
