kOEBEOWS OFF STEAM:

NEW YORK (AP) - Joe Di-
Maggio, one of the all-time greats on
the New York Yankees, who was
scheduled;to throw out the first ball
of the first World Series game,
watched the New York-Los Angeles
opener on television - if at all.
Upset by a hassle over tickets, the
Rall of Fame outfielder declined to
go to Yankee Stadium and one friend
quoted him as saying: "I don't care if
I ever go to the Stadium again."
DiMaggio had come to the ball
park early Tuesday to pick up tickets
for friends and, like scores of others,
was left to cool his heels.
He was unable to get through to his

Ci pper
friend, owner George Steinbrenner of
the Yankees.
"I will watch the game from my
room on television," he told a friend
after leaving the park. A Minneapolis
newsman, who ran into DiMaggio at
a midtown restaurant shortly before
the game, quoted the so-called
"Yankee Clipper" as saying:, "I
didn't want the tickets for myself. I
was getting them for some friends."
DiMaggio Was registered at a
midtown hotel but was not available
immediately for comment.
Meanwhile, Steinbrenner was re-
ported to have phoned DiMaggio with
an apology and a request to throw out
the first ball before the second game

c lippe d
Tuesday night. It was not known
whether this offer was accepted.
DiMaggio's absence caused a stir
among Commissioner Bowie Kuhn
and his baseball hierarchy, occupy-
ing a box next to the New York
Yankees' dugout.
"At first, it was thought maybe we
could get Governor Carey in a
hurry," a spokesman said. "Then,
we decided onWhitey Ford."
Ford is another Hall of Famer, one
of the Yankees' great left-handed
pitchers.
