AL Stars completed
Oakland manager Dick Williams yesterday completed his
American League All-Star team, probably took a look at it,
began to laugh, and busted his guts, resulting in his immediate
and hasty departure to Merritt Hospital in Oakland for an
The operation was scheduled for last night and his
status as pilot of the junior circuit stars is uncertain.
"It was real sudden and took everybody by surprise,"
stated A's public relations director Bob Fulton.
Before his untimely attack, Williams rounded out the All-
Star squad after it was announced that the size of the team
would be increased from 28 to 29. The extra man was Nolan
Ryan, fireballer California hurler and holder of two no-hitters.
Ryan had been left off the original list of pitchers.
The rest of the squad includes three Detroit Tigers, out-
fielder Willie Horton, shortstop Eddie Brinkman, and catcher
Bill Freehan. The other outfielders are Paul Blair of the
Orioles, Milwaukee's Dave May, and Chicago's Pat Kelly,
named as the replacement for the injured Dick Allen.
With the injury to Allen, John Mayberry of Kansas City
moves into the starting lineup and his backup will be Carl Yas-
trzemski of the Red Sox. KC's Cookie Rojas, second sacker Dave
Nelson of Texas, Cleveland Buddy Bell, Sal Bando of the A's,
and Yankee catcher Thurman Munson complete the team.
Absent are any of the league's designated hitters as is the
league's top hitter Ron Blomberg of New York.
The National League annanoces the rest of its contingent
Holdouts and the ending of holdouts made news yesterday
from the various football training camps.
Dallas tackle Bob Lilly apparently changed his mnind about
retirement and reported to the Cowboys' camp on Thousand
Oaks, California. But Lilly must be a person who needs to be
reassured because immediately upon his arrival he began asking
his teammates whether or not he should quit . . . Tight end
Marv Fleming of the World Champion Miami Dolphins ended
his eight-day holdout signing a three-year pact . . . but Wash-
ington star Larry Brown continues his boycott of George Allen's
workouts . - and a House committee in Washington revealed
a survey stating that almost two-thirds of all NFL season tic-
ket holders favor lifting television blackouts for their team's
home games. And what was more important, 69 per cent said
they would continue to be season ticket holders which blasts
holes into the argument that the lifting of TV blackouts would
hurt attendance; an argument often used by the NFL in its at-
tempt to fight it.
DUANE THOMAS works out under the watchful eye of Charger coach Italrand Svare. Thomas de-
cided to return to pro ball after sitting out all of last season.
