...and all of the Stars turn out to be pitchers

By The Associated Press
HOUSTON -- "Pitchers dom-
inated the game as they have all
season," said Red Schoendienst.
"There was great pitching on
both sides," said Dick Williams.
"But that's the way it has been
all year."
So the opposing .managers,
Schoendienst of the Nationals and
Williams of the Americans, saw
eye to eye on what made the low-
scoring 1968 All-Star Game turn
out as it did Tuesday night.
There were other factors, too -
a big one being Willie Mays' open-
ing single and skippity hop base
running that brought in the Na-
tionals' only run in their 1-0
But it was mainly a battle in
which the All-Star pitchers had
the All-Star hitters looking like
they belonged on the awkward
It was the Nationals' sixth
straight All-Star victory.
Buckets of champagne were
available in both dressing roomsl

but only the Nationals popped
the corks.
However, the American Leaguers
took the loss in stride. The only
bitter player was Harmon Kille-
brew of the Minnesota Twins -.-
and it wasn't the loss that both-
ered him.
Killebrew, the A m e r i c a n
League's first baseman, suffered a
severe hamstring pull in his left
leg while stretching for a low
throw from shortstop Jim Fre-
gosi in the third inning.
In obvious pain as he dressed,
Killebrew shrugged off most ques-

tions with "I'd rather not talk-- --

WONDROUS WILLIE MAYS is shown swinging the bat. He subsequently scored the winning run.
Nevertheless, it was the pitchers who once again gathered all the marbles of praise as the world of
baseball spent all days-yesterday reflecting on this year's sickly classic, the 1968 All Star Game, won
1-0 by the NL.

Baltimore f ires manager


By The Associated Press '
BALTIMORE - Hank 'Bauer
was fired yesterday as manager
of the Baltimore Orioles less than
two years after he directed them,
to the American League pennant
and victory in the World Series.
The Orioles said Bauer's re-
placement would be named this
morning. Early speculation was
that it would be coach Earl
"Hank Bauer has been relieved
of his duties as manager of the
Orioles," was the way the official
announcement was phrased.
Bauer was informed of the move
at his home in Kansas City by
Harry Dalton, director of player
Bauer is the third manager to
be fired in the majors this season.
The first was Gene Mauch, who
was replaced at Philadelphia by
Bob Skinner. The second was
Grady Hatton, whose Houston
post was given to Harry Walker.
Dalton said that Bauer will be
paid the balance of his contract
which was due to expire this year.
Bauer became manager of the
Orioles in 1964. They finished
third in the American League the
first two seasons and then won
the pennant and the World Series
in four straight games from the
Los Angeles Dodgers in 1966.
The feat earned Bauer, former
New York Yankee and Kansas
City outfielder, election as base-

the second time. The other was

Dn Drysdale, of the Los Angeles
Dodgers; the starting and winning
pitcher for the Nationals, said he
relied mostly on the fast ball and
"It seems like this is the year
of the pitcher," he said. "This
thing seems to run in cycles. I be-
lieve that in the World Series and
in the All-Star Games the pitch-
ers have the advantage."
Juan Marichal of the San Fran-
cisco Giants, another National
League hurler, said, "We had
great pitching and great defense.
That's a combination hard to
Tom Seaver of the New York
Mets said low scoring games have
been the trend all year.
"Good pitching will overcome
good hitting at all times," he said.
"I didn't think there would be
more than five runs scored in the
ball game."
Williams said he wanted to use
all 25 of his players and succeeded
with the exception of Gary Bell,
one of his own Red Sox pitchers.
Bell was scheduled to pitch in the
eighth but an American League
double play ended the inning be-
fore he could appear.
Schoendienst, who predicted a
low score at his pre-game press
conferences said, "In a game like
this, the hitters don't see enough
of the pitchers to get on to them."
Players on both sides said the
1-0 score was not boring.
"If I were a fan it would have
been the kind of game that would
interest me," said St. Louis out-
fielder Curt Flood. "I really be-
lieve all 50,000 really enjoyed the

stands everyone seemed to be on

EUGENE, Ore. UR)'-Ron Strat-
ten, a former linebacker and cen-
ter, was hired yesterday as the
first black football coach at the
University of Oregon.
Athletic Director Len Casanova,
who announced the appointment
to Coach Jerry Fre's staff, said
Stratten probably will be given
a defensive assignment.
"Ron is very sharp, has a good
personality and is a very good
teacher," Casanova said. "He also
is popular - he was student body
president at Lowell High School in
San Francisco.",
Stratten played-under Casanova
as a sophomore in 1961. He was
idle in 1962 because of a broken
ankle and finished his college ca-
reer at Oregon in 1963 and 1964.

in 1964.
The Orioles finished sixth last
season and there was speculation
then that Bauer's job was on the
line. He was retained, but three
of the four coaches were fired.
The Orioles currently are in
third place, but trail leading De-
troit by 1012 games.

fore succeeding Billy Hitchcock in
Baltimore. He was operated on
recently to remove a nodule from
his throat and had been forbidden
to speak for a while.
Bauer kept his family in Kanses
when the Orioles hired him as
manager in 1964, saying "base-
ball is so indefinite, you know."
He was back home today with
the family, having been dismissed
yesterday midway through the
American League season.g.
"It wasn't much of a surprise,"
said Bauer yesterday. "Somebody
had to take the blame and I'm the
guy. Our pitching has been good,
but the hitting has been bad."
Last season, the troubles were
reversed with the pitching falling
off drastically from the 1966 pern-
nant season.
The Oriole team batting aver-
age currently is .218.

his firing. "The Orioles have

DURHAM, N.C. -Al Woodall,
starting quarterback and 1968
captain of the Duke University
football team, has been suspended
from the university after being
convicted of cheating.
The suspension dealt a severe
blow to coach Tom Harp's plans
for his Blue Devils this fall. Only
sophomores are left to replace
Woodall as quarterback on a team
that Harp had intended to be a
passing team. v
Woodall said yesterday he got
a "raw deal" from the faculty-
student board that heard his case
through two appeals. He was con-
victed of allowing a coed to write
a term paper for him.
He was the first star athlete to
become publically connected with
a cheating investigation at Duke
which already has resulted in the
suspension of 13 students. A few,
additional students have convic-
tions under appeal.
Woodall, a 6-5, 200-pounder
from Erwin, N.C., has signed to
play this fall with the Richmond'
Roadrunners of the semi-pro
Atlantic Coast Football League.
The Roadrunners are a farm team
of the New Orleans Saints.
Woodall would have been a
rising senior at Duke, and is not
eligible to sign with a professional
club until his final year of college
eligibility is up. He said he hopes
eventually to play professional
He said he will complete work
on his degree at a school in the
Richmond area.
The investigation at Duke has
been under way for at least six
weeks. The university is making
little information about it public
but it reportedly started when
one athlete's girl friend tattled
on him for letting her write a
term paper for him.
One source at the university,
who asked to remain unidentified,
said none of the other students
suspended or under appeal is an
athlete of star quality. But Peter
Schafer Sr. of Ramsey, N.J., has
acknowledged that his son, tail-
back Pete Schafer, was suspend-
ed until the fall of 1969 because
of the investigation.
Woodall said, "In my case, I
was charged with allowing a coed
tutor to write a paper in educa-
tion for me, which I denied."
He added, "It was a girl's word
against my word and they believed

By The Associated Press
HOUSTON - The National
League has decided to go along
with the American League and
split its 12 teams next season into
two divisions of six teams each.
This was learned by the Asso-
ciated Press as directors met be-
hind closed doors to discuss opera-
tions growing out of the addition
of Montreal and San Diego in the
NL family.'
Originally the National League
had announced that it would op-
erate a 12-team league over a 162-
game schedule. But the American
League, which will be expanding
to Kansas City and Seattle, had
split its 12 teams into two geo-
graphical divisions with a 156-
game schedule.
Commissioner William D. Eckert
and baseball's Executive Council
both urged NL directors to recon-
sider and adopt the AL plan. -
The National League was pre-
pared to do this, directors said,
provided the American League re-
instated a 162-game card. That
proposal was one of many items
on the agenda at the AL meet-
ing, held yesterday simultane-
ously with the NL gathering.
President Warren Giles of the
National League, President Joe
Cronin of the American and
Eckert were to hold a joint news
conference following the meetings.
It was expected that the align-
ment of the two divisions would
be revealed at that time..
,Representatives of the new
Montreal and San Diego franchis-
es in the NL were on hand to
make progress reports to the own-
ers. The more vital of these was
that from Montreal where civic
problems have arisen since the
city was granted a team six weeks
Lucien Saulnier and Gerry
Snyder, representing the Cana-
dian metropolis, disclosed to the
owners a plan for placing a roof
over 'the Autostade, theproposed
temporary home of Montreal's
new team.
Warren Giles, president of the
National League, finally an-
nounced the two divisions as fol-
New York, Philadelphia, Pitts-
burgh, Chicago, St. Louis, and the
expansion team from Montreal
will play in one group while San
Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston,
Cincinnati, Atlanta and San
Diego's new team will compose
the other.
In addition, the American
League agreed to expand its
schedule from the earlier an-
nounced 156 games to 162, the
figure favored by the National
This move was made despite
violent protest from Arthur llyn,
owner of the Chicago White Box.

Allyn said the White Sox would
appeal the 162 game schedule'and
the makeup of their division to
commissioner Eckert. The Sox
have been unhappy with the di-
visional makeup which places
them with Minnesota, Oakland,
Kansas City, California and the
new Seattle team.
Under baseball's master plan
for 1969, teams in' the same divi-
sion will play each other 18 times
a year and will meet teams in the
other division 12 times a year.

after injuiry
The Minnesota Twins learned
yesterday that slugger Harmon
Killebrew suffered a torn muscle
in Tuesday night's baseball All-
Star game and will be lost for six
to eight weeks.
The assessment of Killebrew's
injury and the period of his dis-
ability came from Dr. Harvey
O'Phelan, a club physican who-
examined Killebrew yesterday
afternoon here.
"His disability is relatively se-
vere," O'Phalen said. "He will be
unable to play for six to eight
O'Phalen described Killebrew's
injury as a partial rupture of the
medial hamstring muscle.
- The doctor said treatments will
begin on Killebrew later this week.
The Twins said Killebrew is
being placed on the disabled list 0
immediately. He must remain on
the list at least 21 days, but se-
verity of the injury gave strong
indication that Killebrew would
not be able to return to the
Twins' lineup until September
at the earliest
Club President Calvin; Griffith.1r
will decide today on who to call
up from the Twins' minorleague
farm system as a roster replace-
ment for Killebrew.
Griffith was due to return
from Houston, site of the All-
Star game, late last night.
Manager Cal Ermer said yes-
terday that Rich Reese would
replace Killebrew at first base for
the Twins.
The Twins trail Detroit by 15
games, and the loss of Killebrew
is a critical blow to their hopes
of recovering from a poor first

stretching for a low throw in the
third inning of, the All-Star

field on a stretcher.

DUKE QUARTERBACK and captain of his team for 1968, Al
Woodall has been suspended from school after a coed; claimed
she wrote a term paper for him. Woodall will not attend classes
at Duke next year, but will play with the Richmond Roadrunners,
a farm club for the New Orleans Saints.

twice and I was turned down. The
last appeal was turned down last
Wednesday. I repeat: I was given
a raw deal."
In 1967, Woodall completed 79
of 150 pass attempts for 11,019
yards and a 52.7 per cent comple-

touchdowns. Nine of his passes
were intercepted.

"They are all good young men,"
the coach said. "One of them will
have to do the job."

Rising senior Larry Davis un-
derstudied Woodall last year, but
Harp plans to use him as a de-
fensive back this year. He missed
spring football practice because of
playing baseball.
Harp added, "We regret losing
a young man of Al Woodall's cap-
abilities. . . During spring prac-
tice our basic offense was built
around his ability to throw the
ball. His loss dealt us a very
severe blow at this most impor-
tant position, but we will make
the necessary adjustments. Mean-
while, we wish him the best of
luck in his professional football
