The hard core fan has been treated roughly of late, Base-
ball, formerly the queen of sports, has been dressed in a form
that an old-time fan can barely recognize. Though the players
are as skilled as ever, the ole game ain't the same.
Baseball, played for the true love of sport; baseball, the
game kids would spend hours and hours memorizing and
playing; baseball, the metaphor for a certain sort of Amer-
ican testiness, is now as bland as the corporations that con-
trol :the teams. Life and vibrancy are gone, banished to a
time not afflicted with industrial anxiety.
When the Giants and Dodgers pulled from the Boroughs
-and heeded Horace Greely's advice, the Game's image became
a little tarnished. And when players were traded solely because
of their high salaries, a new trend emerged: baseball as busi-
A fun business some would argue. But for the guy who
drank his beer in the heart of Flatbush, it was a business that
had eliminated one of his most passionate and harmless fan-
tasies. For the kid with a bottlecap and a stick, who wasn't
quite aware that something was amiss, all that was left was
cold boxscore in. the Daily News.
Roger Kahn, a Dodger fan to the core, has penned a fine
volume about his boyhood and baseball's heyday, a youth spent
on dreams of deification of the Bums. In Boys ofI Summer,
Kahn has recreated a baseball world which old and hard fans
can identify.
Kahn's book, unlike most baseball books which drip
with a sentimentality that would embarass even the most
diehard of soap-opera enthusiasts or which are stock-filled
with moments of vainglory such as first-hand reports of
how single-handedly Babe Zwatski stopped the Yankees
with no hits in thirty-five consecutive innings, is a work
about men. No exalted gods,- carrying their bats as prized
spears, but men who toiled under hot sun in a game that
was a lifetime for them.
Jackie Robinson, whose black body and flashing spikes dom-
inated the fortunes of Flatbush during the fifties, is the pro-
tagonist of this work. Robinson possessed the driving spirit
that was the Dodgers durng that time. Whether glaring down a
pitcher or taking an extra base on a throw, Robinson was a
force to be reckoned with. Here, in Kahn's creation, is also
Robinson, the man whose son fights bravely against a drug
Kahn does not shrink from his reporting duty, follow-
ing each of the Dodger regulars to their present lives. Men,
who once played with what Dodger catching star Cam-
panella termed "a bit of the boy", are found on construction
sites and in bar rooms. Some are embittered against the
sport (Carl Furillo is a hard hat in his fifties. Where is
his pension, Mr. O'Malley?) but none can deny their ties
and deep roots to it-
Roy Campanella, who today lies perilously close to death,
would be one who sensed the difference in style. Campy used
to watch the other team take batting practice, sitting in his
dugout, alone. To Roy just being on a Big League diamond was
fun enough.
The pension strike is a grim reminder that we as a nation
are not as fun-loving as we once were. That we have a national
pastime run as efficiently as General Motors is sad enough, that
we have forgotten our roots seems tragic.
-Dan Borus

NEW YORK-Vic Hadfield, who

nightmares all evening, blasted the.
puck past goalie Ken Dryden mid-
way through the final period to
give the New York Rangers a 3-2
victory in the first game of their
best of seven Eastern Division'
semifinal series.
In addition, the victory broke
the Canadiens' 11 game win streak
over the Rangers in playoff com-

Special To The Daily
Lacrosse Club blitzed Michigan
State's varsity team for the first+
t h r e e quarters of yesterday's'
game, and then hung on to win+
15-13 on the soggy Tartan Turf of
Spartan Stadium.
After State had taken a 2-0 lead,
the W o l v e r i n e s scored seven;
straight goals in the first and sec-
ond periods, but they tired late
in the game, allowing six Spartan
tallies in the final quarter..
Michigan got somewhat balanced;
scoring with four goals by the
attackmen, seven from the first
line midfielders, and three from
the second middles. State, on the
other hand, was paced for the;
most part by Valdemar Washing-
ton, a sophomore from Baltimore.
Washington scored six goals.
Michigan had four players who;
earned the proverbial "hat trick."'
Dick Dean and Dennis Burdziak'
each scored three times, while;

Curt Adkisson and Don Holman
had four goals apiece.
The vital statistics of the game
were pretty even, with Michigan
outshooting State 53-50, and the
Wolverine goalies Jay Johnson and
Charlie Crone making 15 saves to
State's Ron Hebert's 13. But the
most vital stat of all came in the
roughhousing area, where Michi-
gan picked up 1P penalties to the
Spartans' five.
Michigan State opened the game
with two goals in the first 45 sec-
onds, and one wondered if the
artificial turf had something to do
with it, as Michigan played on
nothing but grass for the last three
weeks. But Dean broke the scor-
ing drouth at 3:14, and then Flan-
agan and Holman went to work.
Three of the next four Blue
scores came off this combination,
with Flanagan contributing the
set-up passes from behind the net,
and Holman merely flicking - the
ball behind goalie Hebert almost
at will. In all, Michigan scored

four times in the first quarter andI
five in the second to take a 9-5
lead into the dressing room at
halftime. Four more goals in the
third stanza brought the score to
13-7 with 15 minutes to play in the
