COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (M) -
'WANTED: two used baseballs
and two used bats, for donation
only. Contact National Baseball
Hall of Fame."
It isn't just any two bats and
balls the Hall of Fame is seek-
ing. They are the ones used
when Atlanta Braves' slugger
Henry Aaron hit his 714th and
7thb hoe runs earlier this
year, thereby tying and surpas-
sing Babe Ruth's immortal
career record.
Although Hall of Fame Direc-
tor Ken Smith wouldn't dream
of placing such an ad, he would
very much like to see those
balls and bats encased forever
in his repository of baseball
memorabilia.
Smith will have to wait a
while, however. As part of a
million dollar contract with
Magnavox, Aaron has author-
ized the company use of the
bats and balls, and others, for
five years.
"This is unusual," Smith
said. "But it's a very unusual
event, too."
The 72-year old former base-
ball writer says he's "not criti-
cal" of Aaron's decision.
"We're very pleased Hank
would get something out of this.
That's his choice. It's all com-
pletely amicable."
Smith said Aaron called him
within 24 hours "to clear it up"
that the Hall would get Aaron's
historic artifacts after his five-
year contract with Magnavox
expired.
The bats Aaron used to hit
his 500th and 600th home runs,
plus his 3,000th hit, already are
in the Hall of Fame. But Mag-
navox has loan rights to each
hat and bal used from No. 700
through Aaron's last major
league homer, a company
spokesman said.
Additionally, the company
has the uniform, gloves and
spikes used by Aaron when he
hit Nos. 714, 715 and 716. "We
are developing a plan to have
them available for the public
Shero eyes
Saints' offer
TORONTO (A) - Coach Fred
Shero of the Philadelphia Flyers
of the National Hockey League
is considering a $100,000-a-year
offer from the Minnesota Fight-
ing Saints of the World Hockey
Association, the Toronto Star
said Tuesday.
Shero, who led the Flyers to
an NHL Stanley Cup champion-
ship victory this year, is quoted
in the report from Philadelphia
as saying that if he makes the
switch, he will do so in the next
few weeks and would become
coach, general manager and
part owner of the Saints.
