Ma jor League Standings
NEW YORK (A") - Outfielder Henry Aaron of
Atlanta and catcher Johnny Bench of Cincinnati
each received more than 2.5 million votes, and
Steve Garvey of Los Angeles won the first-base
job as a write-in candidate for the National
League All-Star team announced yesterday by
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn.
Aaron led all NL voting with 2,636,200 votes.
Pete Rose of Cincinnati, with 2,084,563, and Jim
Wynn of Los Angeles, 1,625,259, joined Aaron as
starting outfielders. Reggie Smith of St. Louis
was fourth with 1,209,503.
It will be Aaron's 20th All-Star Game, 15th as
Bench collected 2,628,454, easily outdistancing
runnerup Bob Boone of Philadelphia in voting
Garvey, not listed on the printed ballot, edged
Tony Perez of Cincinnati 1,082,489 to 1,059,611
for the first-base berth.
The last write-in candidate before Garvey to
win was outfielder Rico Carty of Atlanta in 1970.
Cincinnati's Joe Morgan won the second-base
spot with 2,153,061 to 1,693,389 for Dave Cash of
Philadelphia. Los Angeles' Ron Coy held off
Philadelphia's Mike Schmidt, another write-in
candidate, 1,593,929 to 1,476,447 to become start-
ing third baseman.
In the fight for No. 1 shortstop, Larry Bowa of
Philadelphia, who trailed Los Angeles' Bill Rus-
sell for most of the voting, overcame Russell
with a closing flurry of votes to win 1,570,033 to
You might call the rise of Buzz Capra to pitch-
ing prominence a Cinderella story. One day, he
was in the bullpen; the next night, he pitched
sensationally in relief and was moved into the
starting rotation. The rest is National League
The emergence of the Atlanta Braves' right-
hander to sudden prominence and his outstand-
ing June performance of six wins (no losses),
three shutouts, four complete games, and a
1.04 ERA earned him the vote of National
League writers and broadcasters as the "Play-
er of the Month" for June. Capra garnered
31 votes with Philadelphia's Mike Schmidt, the
runnerup with 22.
The 5-10, 168-pound righthander relies pri-
marily on the standard stuff most pitchers
throw-fastball, slider, and changeup. "I have
more confidence in my fastball now that I'm
working more regularly. I had always wanted
to start, but the Mets felt that I could relieve."
"Everything that has happened has been a
great thrill for me," Capra says. "The fans have
reacted to me, maybe because I'm small."
Aaron feels Capra is effective because he keeps
the ball low. "But that's because he's built so
close to the ground," Hank quips. As a result
of his great success, which has helped the
Braves' pitching staff second only to the Dodgers.
in the league, Capra is kiddingly called "Sandy"
by his teammates. "Quite an honor," says Buzz,
"to be mentioned in the same breath as Koufax."
