MUNICH-Dwight Stones of the United States set a world
record in the high jump with a leap of 7-61/ yesterday in a track
meet against West Germany and Switzerland.
Stones, 19, of Glendale, Calif., set the new mark on his third.
and final try bettering the old standard by a quarter inch, for-
merly held by Pat Matsdorf of Wisconsin.
Stones was a bronze medalist in the past Munich Olympics.
Everybody knows about the sad plight of the Pittsburgh
Pirates. Seven games below .500, the.Bucs' woes started last New
Year's Day wit,, the tragic loss of Roberto Clemente. Then the
pitching, especially Steve Blass, gave out. Now Clemente's re-
placement Gene Clines is on the disabled list with torn liga-
ments. The only question left is when manager Bill Virdon seeks
other employment . ." The New York Mets yesterday closed the
book on one of the worst trades in history when shortstop Jim
Fregosi was sent to Texas for the versatile player to be named
later. Fregosi came to the Big Apple in exchange for Nolan
Ryan and needless to say California profitted slightly better . . .
and outfielder Rick Reichardt was signed as a free agent by the
Kansas City Royals yesterday. Reichardt was released last week
by the White Sox in a dispute over unsigned contracts.
The St. Louis footbll Cardinals yesterday traded veteran
defensive back Dale Hackbart to the Denver Broncos for a
future draft choice. Hackbart, 35, is a former Wisconsin quarter-
back and played for Green Bay and Minnesota . . and President
Nixon signed a bill yesterday authorizing ;he addition of 8,000
seats to RFK Memo gal Sta,?ium boosting its capacity to 61,000
for all Redskin games . . . or 61,000 empty.seats for the future
WashingtonWatergates of the National League if and when they
move to D. C. . . . now what about the high prices?
. . . tonight's Tiger game pits Strappin' Mike Strahler
versus California's Smokin' Bill Singer, one of the likely
All-Star starters along with Bill Lee of Boston and the Twins'
Bert Blyleven. Game time is a cool eight p.m. It is an ideal
way to spend a nice summer night at a cheap price.
