ribson, Palmer duel for Stars

ATLANTA () - Manager
Danny Murtaugh of the Nation-
al League named a somewhat
reluctant Bob Gibson yesterday
to start tonight's 43rd annual
All-Star baseball game and the
pitcher's reported reticence
drew an immediate blast from
Earl Weaver, manager of the
American League.
Weaver, who will open with
Jim Palmer, ace of his own
Baltimore pitching staff, came
up with newspaper clippings
quoting Gibson as saying that
he hoped he would not start the
"This game is important to
me and to every player in it,"
the Orioles' manager said. "I
don't think anybody should say
he doesn't want to play. Ninety-
five per cent of the gate from
this game goes into the pension
fund. This pays for my retire-
ment and his, and he'd better
not forget it." .
Murtaugh seemed surpris-
ed over the furor. "I haven't
,een a.y article," the former
P-ttsr h manager said.
"Wht did. he say?"
Weaver produced the clip-
ptngs and handed them to Mur-
taugh, who glanced at them for
a moment.
"Well, Bob and I have differ-
ent ideas," said Murtaugh. "I
named him as my starter and


I'm going to start him. It's an
honor and I'm sure he'll do a
good job."
"An honor . . . and hard
work, too," said Gibson. The
St. Louis right-hander had been
quoted as saying:
"There's a game Thursday
and that's a lot more impor-
tant. If I pitch Tuesday, I can't
pitch Thursday,"
It's something that
shouldn't have been said,"
snapped Weaver. "I'm sure
he's happy to be here and
he'll go out and do a job,
especially after me popping
The game, which will be tele-
cast by NBC, Channel 4 in De-
troit, is scheduled to begin at
7:30 p.m. EST. The National
League has a 23-18 edge with
one tie in the series which be-.
gan in 1933.
Weaver supplied the only
real surprise in the starting
lineups, inserting Baltimore
shortstop Bobby Grich, who
was added to the American
League team 'only Sunday.
Luis Aparicio, starting short-
stop in the balloting by fans
across the country, will miss
the game because of an in-
jury and Gricl was added
when Texas' Toby Harrah
also was scratched by an in-
"When Harrah called me and
said he couldn't play, I added
Grich. Here's a .290 hitter
doing everything for me and
outhitting all the shortstops in
the American League. He de-
serves to start," said Weaver.
That leaves Oakland's Bert
Campaneris as the backup

Weaver named second base-
man Rod Carew of Minnesota
to lead off; New York center
fielder Bobby Murcer to bat
second; Oakland's Reggie Jack-
son, right field, third; first
baseman Dick Allen of Chicago
fougth; Boston left fielder Carl
Yastrzemski, fifth, and then
Grich, third baseman Brooks
Robinson of Baltimore, Detroit
catcher Bill Freehan and Palm-
Murtaugh came equipped
with two batting orders. One
for a left-hander, the other for
a right-hander. With Palmer
opening for the AL, Murtaugh's
team bats this way: ex-Hous-
ton second baseman Joe Mor-
gan, center fielder Roberto Cle-
mente of Pittsburgh, Atlanta's
Hank Aaron in right field, Will-
ie Stargell of Pittsburgh in left
field, catcher Johnny Bench of
Cincinnati, Houston's Lee May
at first base, third baseman
Joe Torre of St. Louis, Chicago
shortstop Don Kessinger and
"We'll see how good these
National Leaguers are if they
can pull me through," crack-
ed Murtaugh, who retired
after managing the Pirates
to the world championship
last October, beating Weav-
er's Orioles in seven games.
Because he's been away from
the day-to-day games, Mur-
taugh said he would depend
heavily on the advice of his two
coaches, manager Red Schoen-
"That way, if we lose, I'm
just a fellow taking advice
from two other guys," Mur-
taugh quipped.
