Chisox Lack All-Star Player;
Kaline, Robinson Lead Picks

End Vote on Pac-8 Bowl Pick


Pacific-8's football champion and
representative in the Rose Bowl

NEW YORK (AP)-Unless Hank
Bauer opens with a Chicago pitch-
er, the league-leading White Sox
won't have a representative in the
starting line-up July 11 when the
American League All-Star team
takes the field against the Na-
tional League at Anaheim, Calif.
DETROIT (JP)-All-Star outfielder
Al Kaline fractured his right hand
last night in Detroit's baseball
game with Cleveland and will be
lost to the team for two or three
weeks. Kaline probably will miss
the All-Star Game July 11.

Detroit, Minnesota, Baltimore
and Boston each placed two start-
ers in the line-up selected by the
273 players, managers and coaches
of the American League.
Manager Bauer of the world
champion Baltimore Orioles, who
will designate the pitchers and the
rest of the 25-man squad, may
very well settle on Joe Horlen,
Gary Peters or Tommy John of
the White Sox as his starter. Each

of the 10 teams must have at least
one player on the squad.
Al Kaline of Detroit was the
top vote getter with 242 of a pos-
sible 247 with the 26 Tigers ex-
cluded because nobody can vote
for his own teammate.
Frank Robinson of the Orioles*
had 239 of a possible 245 with the
28 Orioles eliminated. Teams had
varying number of eligible voters
because of the number of coaches
and therules requiring a player
to have been in the majors at least
30 days to vote.
When the voting was announced
The prices of tickets for 1967
home games of Michigan's football
team have been increased, it was
announced yesterday.
The $5 seats, which make up the
bulk of the 101,000 seat Michigan
Stadium, were boosted to $6. About
1,800 field level box seats and re-
served seats in another area were
hiked from $6.50 to $7.50.

Kaline, Frank Robinson and
Yastrzemski were the three start-
ing outfielders and Bill Freehan
of Detroit the catcher.
The National League's eight
starters will be announced Thurs-
day by Commissioner William
Eckert. The separate league offices;
then will release at different dates
the names of the pitchers and the
rest of the squads selected by the
two managers.

Washington, 6-4 overall and 4-1
in conference play, was voted into
the Bowl in 1963 over USC, 7-3
and 3-1. On a point basis, USC
would have won, 24-22.
Last year, USC was 7-3 and 4-1;
UCLA 9-1 and 3-1, and Oregon
State 7-3 and 3-1. USC went to
the bowl on a member vote. It

As Only Rookie Star


- Rodney Cline Carew cast a
sheepish glance toward a cluster
of players that included Zoilo
Versalles, Tony 'Oliva and Cesar
Tovar a few feet away in the Min-
nesota Twins clubhouse.
"I was pulling for Cesar, Tony,
Zoilo and some of the other guys
on this team," the soft-spoken
21-year-old rookie said. "But the
players on the other teams were
voting on what's happening this
year, I guess."
Carew had just learned Monday
night that he was the only rookie
selected by a vote of American
League players, to start in the
All-Star Game July 11 at Aana-
He and teammate Harmon Kil-
lebrew got the word in congratu-
latory telegrams from American
League headquarters shortly be-
fore Minnesota beat Boston 2-1.
Ironically, an elderly clubhouse
doorkeeper had delivered Carew's
wire to Tovar by mistake.
"I'll tell you," Carew said with
a smile, "it5s a big thrill."
But he was reluctant to talk
loud enough for the others to
hear. Carew, only two full seasons
of minor league ball behind him,
still views Versalles, Oliva 'and
Tovar as heroes.

' "I got the telegram," Carew
said, "and I went up to tell Mr.
Griffith in hi soffice. I wanted
him to be one of the first to
know. He stuck with me."
It was Twins President Calvin
Griffith who ordered former
Manager Sam Mele- to play Carew
at second base when the season
"I just saw so much talent in
the boy, that I thought he should
get a good chance this year,"
Griffith said. "His hitting (.318
through Monday night's game)
has surprised me. I had hoped he
could hit .260 or .270.
"I never went out on a limb for
any player before like this."
Minnesota signed Carew out of
high school in 1964 and sent him
to Melbourne, Fla., where he hit
.325 in 37 games in the abbre-
viated Florida Rookie League. In
full seasons, he hit .303 at Or-
lando, Fla., in 1965 and .292 at
Wilson in the Carolina League
last year.
"I never really thought I could
jump from Class A to the major
leagues," Carew said, "but, still,
I thought that if I got the chance,
I just might be able to do it.
Mr. Griffith game me that
