Billy Martin .. .
..a managerial genmus
jim kevro
IFEVER YOU'RE strolling down the street and you see Billy
Martin, the manager of the Detroit Tigers, walk up to him,
pat him on the back, shake his hand, and tell him that he's. done
a great job of managing the Tigers.
Because it's true. Billy Martin has done a great job of man-
aging the Tigers. Martin took a team that had finished in fourth
place the year before with a below .500 record, a team which
had quit on themselves the last two months of the season, and
drove them into second place where they'll finish about eight
games behind the champion Baltimore Orioles.
So far, during the month of September, Martin's Bengals
have played over .700 baseball and had cut the Orioles' lead
from a high of 11 games down to five before their tragic
loss last Sunday. A tremendous change from last year's
collapse.
A lot of people have argued that the change in the Tigers
is due more to the Denny McLain trade than to anything
Martin has done.
That's certainly true up to a point. No one (well, hardly any-
one) would dispute that the trade had helped the Tigers. Aurelio
Rodriguez and Eddie Brinkman form a solid defensive left side
of an infield, even if their batting averages leave something
to be desired. And as for Joe Coleman, 18 wins is almost certainly
more than even McLain would have recorded had he stayed with
the Tigers.
But without Martin, it's doubtful that the Tigers would
be as high in the standings as they are now.
Martin is the type of manager ballplayers like. He's a
tough manager in that he expects every player to always
give 100 per cent on the field but his off-the-field tules are
almost non-existent. Martin treats his ballplayers like the
mature adults that they're supposed to be.
And Martin has always been fair with his ballplayers, never
holding a grudge. Two years ago, when Martin was managing
the Minnesota Twins, one of his pitchers, Dave Boswell, had a
little too much to drink one night, and started to insult the coach-
ing staff and some other players. A few of Boswell's teammates
were trying to restrain him when Martin walked into the bar
where the incident was taking place.
Billy listened to Boswell's rantings for a few minutes, and,
after he warned Boswell to stop, put him down for the count
with two quick punches.
Some people might not think too much of a manager who
goes around kayoing his pitchers, but, the important thing in
Martin's favor is that he was able to separate an off-the-field
incident from a player's on-the-field performance.
Boswell was fined by Martin but then was put right back
on the pitching roster and continued playing. This sprtng,
when the Tigers found themselves in desperate need of

pitching, Boswell was one of the players that Martin picked
up (after he had been let go by Minnesota) and Boswell
played part of the season with Detroit before proving inef-
fective and being replaced.
Martin's success with the Tigers this past season can be
broken down into two categories; his excellent job of platooning
and his capable job of handling the pitchers.
By platooning, Martin has been able rest many of his regular
players for a day or two and thus get better performances out
of them. In addition, getting his reserves into the game means
they are going to be readier for action in case of an emergency.
In the pitching department, the Tiger manager has been
particularly effective.
Detroit started the season with only two healthy starters,
Mickey Lolich and Joe Niekro. One of their pitchers, Cole-
man, was in the hospital with a concussion, a second, Les
Cain, had so much arm trouble, it was thought he might
never pitch again. A third pitcher, John Hiller, was in a
Minnesota hospital after suffering a heart attack, and a
fourth starter, Mike Kilkenny, had been so ineffective in
spring training that he thought seriously about quitting
baseball for golf, a la Ken "Hawk" Harrelson.
Martin was forced to go to his bullpen looking for starters
and liberally used his relief pitchers to pull the Tigers through
the early part of the season until Coleman and finally Cain
returned to settle down the staff.
But, for all of Martin's fine managing and the consistently
good performances of many Tigers, the Orioles were just too
strong. After last Sunday's death blow loss, Martin and his
Tigers can only cry, "Wait until next year!"

At the tight end slot, Paul Sey-
mour and Paul Seal will one again
alternate.
But while the offense seemed to
steal the spotlight, the defense
achieved a measure of deserved
satisfaction in holding the opposi-
tion scoreless after losing a shut-
out the previous week because of
a pass interference call. As if tak-
ing out their revenge on the hap-
less Virginia team, they proved
themselves to be among the best
defenses in the nation, consistent-
ly slamming the door in the Cava-
liers' and limiting them to a mea-
ger 13 first downs. The backs
managed to roll up a total of 78

yards on the ground, while the
aerial attack was stopped cold fo:
minus one yard.
Despite the prowess of the de
fense, the likelihood of a secon
straight shutout seems awfully
dim. Although the Bruins com

Terry Vernoy. Echols, a 9.4 speed-

James McAlister.
When the battle is joined on
the Tartan turf this afternoon
more will be at stake than just
one win. For the Bruins there's
'the chance to reestablish their
dominant position in the Pacific-
Eight, to save their season before
it's too late. For the Wolverines
there's the chance for an unde-
feated. season and a national
championship. And for both per-
haps there is the faint odor of
roses at the end of a long trail.
