Drra, viiiiamRI ICK SUDS ''
for baseball's Star clash NCAA rules athletes ineligible

From Wire Service Reperbt
National League All-Star man-
ager Yogi Berra of the New
York Mets and American Lea-
gue manager Dick Williams of
the Baltimore Orioles both an-
nounced their reserves yester-
day for Tuesday's mid-summer
classic at Pittsburgh's T h r e e
Rivers Stadium.
Aging veteran Al Kaline of
the Detroit Tigers, likely in his
final Major League season was
among Williams' AL choices
along with longtime superstar
Frank Robinson, now with the
California Angels. .
RALPH GARR, the National
League's leading hitter and the
major league leader in hits and
Cesar Cedeno the Beniar cir-
cuit's top run producer topped
Berma's list.
Thurman Munson of the New
York Yankees was also named
as the American League's start-
ing catcher, replacing Bos-on-s
Carlton Fisk who was sidelined
for the remainder of the season
with a knee injury.
For Kaline, it will be the 18th
All-Star appearance of his ca-
reer. Kaline has stated that if
he reaches the revered i)lateau
of 3,000 career base hits he will
retire. The chances for his at-
taining that mark seem rather
good in the remaining weets of
the 1974 campaign.
ROBINSON, the only player
in history to win the Most Val-
uable Player award in 1 a c h
league will be making his 14th
All-Star appearance. He will be
joined by Angel teammate Daoe
Chalk at shortstop.
Lou Brock, another NL re-
serve outfielder, currently
stands 22 games ahead of Maury
Wills' record setting stolen base
mark of 1962. He will be making
his third All-Star trip.
Two more of Brock's St. Louis
Cardinal teammates were also
chosen as reserves, catcher Ted
Simmons and outfielder Reggie
Smith.
OTHER SELECTIONS to the
NL squad are outfielder Johnny
Grubb of San Diego, catcher
Jerry Grote of New York, third
baseman Mike Schmidt and se-
cond baseman Dave Cash of
Phiadelphia, first baseman Tony
Perez of Cincinnati, and short-
stops Don Kessinger of Chicago
and Chris Speier of San Fran-
cisco.
The remainder of the AL Stars
includes first basemen Carl

Yastrzemski o£ Boston and John
Mayberry of Kansas City, se-
cond basemen Cookie Rojas of
KC and Bobby Grich of Balti-
more, third baseman Sal Bando
and outfielder Joe Rudi of Oak-
land, outfielder George Hen-
drick of Cleveland, and catch-
ers Ed Herrmann of Chicago
and Darrell Porter of Milwau-
kee
In a related development,
American League President Lee
MacPhail said yesterday that an
aereement has been reached
with clubs in the league to try
and keep All-Star pitchers from
performing Sunday so that they
would be rested for Tuesday's
clash
"I'VE ALWAYS felt that we
should have some rested pitch-
ers in order to win," said Mac-
Phail, who replaced Joe Cron-
in as AL prexie earlier this
year. "It would be unfair to the
fans to have the pitchers work
Sunday and then not be avail-
able to pitch Tuesday."
The National League has won
10 of the last 11 All-Star meet-
ings and holds the overall series
lead 25-18 with one tie. The
AL last won in the 1971 contest
MacPhail denied reports that
formal directives had been sent
to AL clubs to change rotations
so that All-Stars would not pitch
Sunday.
"It's just an informal agree-
ment," he said.
MACPHAIL also indicated
that AL Manager Dick Williams
would not be using most of his
players if it turns out to be
a close game.
"I've talked with Dick and
we agreed to concentrate on
winning and that it was import-
ant to keep the best team on the
field at all times. I told Dick
that winning comes first, not
keeping the players happy."
