An airport official said that
he understood the hijackers
were "waiting for a message
from New York" before they
would announce further plans.
An FAA spokesperson said
in New York, "We believe there

media team were wounded i
while warming up. And when
the game began, the newspeo-
ple (representing radio stations
WAAM, WPAG, Cable E-TV and
the Ann Arbor News) were
swamped by a five-run City
blitz in the first inning. ;
"Well," a disgusted onlooker
muttered, "I guess you don't
get much exercise writing news
stories."
Encouraged, some excited
members of the crowd began
calling out to their favorite City
players - screaming, "Strike'
'em out, Wheelie!" to Mayor
Albert Wheeler and "Over the
fence, Wendy!" to Council men-;
ber Wendell Allen (R-First

Conncil member Gerald Bell
(R-Fifth Ward), captain of the

"it was an awful lot of fun,"
he said. "And we raised over,

The British Broadcasting
Corp., in a report from Zagreb,
said Yugoslav authorities took
several air traffic controllers
from the Zagreb tower for ques-
tioning. It added this was a
routine investigative procedure
in Yugoslavia following air
crashes.
