ROYALS BOAST HITTING KINGS
Experience andower key

By RICK MADDOCK

The American League play-
off features two first time
teams. The Kansas City Royals,
the third team to represent the'
Western Division since the play-
offs began in 1969, end Oak-
land's five-year domination. The
New York Yankees, the fourth
Eastern Division representative,
are in post season action for
the first time since 1964.
Statistically, the two teams
are very close in the overallj
ERA and batting average de-
I)artments. However, the Yank-
ees may have the advantage
because of more power, and

pitchers with experience under ERA in playoffs, along with a run title with 32. Yankee catch- and Ch

OFFENSIVELY, the Royals
will be counting on third base-
man George Brett and desig-
nated hitter Hal McRae. These
two were the top hitters in the
American League, finishing .333
and .332 respectively. Center
fielder Amos Otis and first
baseman John Mayberry will
be counted on for power.
The playoffs start with two
games in Kansas City on Octo-
ber 9 and 10. Then it moves to
refurbished Yankee Stadium for
the conclusion from October 12-
14.
Most "experts" feel if the
Yankees split in Kansas City,
then the American League flag
will belong to New York.
