BANDO SECOND:
Blue n
NEW YORK (') -- Left-handed
pitcher Vida Blue of the Oakland
A's was named the winner of the
American League Most Valuable
Player award yesterday. At 22,
Blue is the youngest player ever
to win an MVP honor in either
league.
Blue, who won the Cy Young
Award as the AL's outstanding
pitcher last month, earned 14 of a
possible 24 first place votes and
268 points from the Baseball
Writers Association of America
committee. Sal Bando, Blue's Oak-
land teammate, garnered four first
place votes and 182 points to finish
second.
The Robinson boys of the AL-
champion Baltimore Orioles gained
the next two places. Outfielder
Frank Robinson received 170 points
and two first place votes to finish
third, while third baseman Brooks
Robinson collected 163 points and
three first place votes to come in
fourth.
Detroit pitcher Mickey Lolich,
runner-up to Blue in the Cy Young
balloting, got the other first place

amed
vote and finished fifth with 155
points.
A total of 29 players were men-
tioned in the MVP voting. Blue
was the only player to be named
on every ballot.
Until Blue received the honor,
the youngest player to be named
MVP was Cincinnati catcher John-
ny Bench in 1970. Bench was just
a few weeks shy of his 23rd birth-
day when he received his MVP
award, while Blue will not turn 23
until next July 28.
The hard-throwing left-hander, in
his first full season of major league
ball, compiled a 24-8 record, led
the league with a 1.82 earned run
average, completed 24 of his 39
starts and struck out 301 batters.
In addition to his 14 first place
votes, Blue also received four sec-
onds, two thirds and one each for

fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth.i
Blue is the fifth pitcher to win
both the Cy Young and MVP
honors. Don Newcombe did it in
1956, the year the Cy Young Award
was initiated. The others were
Sandy Koufax in 1963, Bob Gibson,
1968, and Denny McLain, also 1968.
He is the fifth pitcher to win
the American League MCP since
the award was first issued 40 years
ago. Hal Newhouser won it twice,
in 1944 and 1945. The other pitchers
to win the MVP were Lefty Grove,
1931; Spud Chandler, 1943; Bobby
Shantz, 1952, and McLain, 1968.
Blue is the first Oakland player
to win the MVP and the first mem-
ber of the A's to receive the honor
since Shantz won it in 1952, when
the twice-transplanted franchise
was in Philadelphia.
Bando, the Oakland third base-

man who hit .271, slammed 24
home runs and drove in 94 runs,
was named on all but one of the
ballots.
Frank Robinson hit .281 with 28
homers and 99 runs batted in, while
Brooks Robinson batted .272 with
20 homers and 92 RBI. Lolich, 25-
14, was the winningest pitcher in
the major leagues.
At the White House last sum-
mer, President Nixon called Blue
"the most underpaid player in
baseball."
Blue observed that the Most
Valuable Player award coming
close on the heels of the Cy Young
Award for being the league's out-
standing pitcher would not hurt
his bargaining position.
"Now that the wage-price freeze
is over, I think it's just a matter
of time," said Blue. "I'm not say-
ing that we're going to sign within
the next day or two, but now that
the freeze is over it makes it legal
for everyone to negotiate to get a
raise or a new contract or what-
ever they're negotiating for."
It was suggested the Federal
Pay Board probably would be will-
ing to exempt Blue from the 5.5
per cent pay raise ceiling.
"They're going to have to," Blue
said with a grin. "Because I'm
going to be begging, man."

Michigan's stalwart defense
y iel d e d more points in last
week's 20-17 win over Purdue
than it has given up on any
weekend this year.
But that's just an indication
of how good it really is. For the
Wolverines' piranha-like defense
is still the strongest among the
nation's major colleges. Accord-
ing to the official statistics re-
leased this week, the Big Blue's
"D" ranks as the top squad in
both rushing and scoring de-
fense.
Michigan's defense has limited
its opponents to a piddling total
of 61.8 rushing yards and 6.3
points per game. Just one notch
below them in scoring defense,
though, are Nebraska and Notre
Dame. Both of these teams have
surrendered only 6.4 points a
game.
It is the Cornhuskers, however,
who lead the nation in total
defense, as they have given up

171.7 yards a contest. Michigan-
ranks third in this category, be-
hind second-place Toledo, with
a figure of 183.7 yards.
On the offensive side of the
coin, Oklahoma r e m a i n s the
pacesetter as they lead the na-
tion's colleges in three different
categories.
The Sooners' rushing offense
(481.4 yard average) is far ahead
of second - place New Mexico's
(385.8' yards) as well as the
NCAA record of 391 yards per
game set by Bud Wilkenson's
1956 Oklahom team. The Wol-
verine running game is the third
best in the country with an av-
erage of 342.5 yards.
Oklahoma is also threatening
to break the NCAA total offense
record. They are currently av-
eraging 563.2 yards a game-1.2
yards more than the Houston
team of 1966. The Blue offense
ranks ninth in this department
with an average of 406.2 yards.
Michigan is the third-highest
scoring team this year with a
39.9 point per game a ve r a g: e.
Ahead of them are Oklahoma
(45.0) and Penn State (43.1).
Turning to some individual
categories, Cornell's Ed Mari-
naro's 206.4 rushing yards a con-
test is good enough .to lead the

nation for the umpteenth week
in a row. Billy Taylor is now
nineteenth in the nationgwith
an average of 109.7 r us h in g
yards.
Among place-kickers, Michi-
gan's Dana Coin is part-owner
of first place along with Penn
State's Italian, soccer-style kick-
er Albert Vitiello. Each is av-
eraging 7.1 points.
Meanwhile, the newly released
Big Ten statistics reveal why
Michigan has clinched its 23rd
conference title, as the Wolver-
ines continue to dominate in vir-
tually every team department.
Defensively, the Big Blue ranks
first in every category but pass-
ing defense, w h e r e they are
seeded third. Likewise, Michi-
gan 's offense leads in every de-
partment except passing.
Individually, Billy Taylor is
second in rushing (1097 yards)
behind Michigan State's E r i c
Allen (1382), and bruising Ed
Shuttlesworth is s i x t h (758
yards). In addition, Taylor needs
only six more yards to break the
Big Ten's all-time three-year
rushing record held by ex-Illini
Jim Grabowski.
In the scoring battle, Billy
Taylor (72 points) and Dana
Coin (71 points) rank third and
fourth. They are, however, far
behind Allen's first-place total
of 104 points.
Finally, Tom Darden and
Bruce Elliott are first and sec-
ond in punt returns with 10.3
yards a punt and 8.8 yards a
p u n t respectively. Meanwhile
Barry Dotzauer is tied for third
in punting with an average of
39.8 yards a punt.
