Local hero Lolich ;x
could do no wrong

DETROIT IS')-Mickey Lolich
hadn't pitched a moment of re-
lief all season, but, suddenly has
a save under his belt.
He was among the heroes of
the American League's 6-4 vic-
tory over the National League
in the 42nd annual All-Star
baseball game in Detroit Tues-
day night.
Perhaps more important con-
tributors than the Detroit pitch-
er were pinch hitter Reggie
Jackson of Oakland, Frank Rob-
inson of Baltimore and perhaps
Harmon Killebrew of Minnesota,
who each c l u b b e d two-run
homers for the winners in the
slugfest to snap an eight-game
AL losing streak.
But Lolich' was a hero in an-
other respect. He was a home-
towner performing in his first
All-Star game and he could do
no wrong, even when he gave up
a solo homer to Pittsburgh's
Roberto Clemente in the eighth
inning.
The Tiger Stadium crowd of
53,559 had seen, heard or read

about their almost one-man
pitching rotation all year and
this was their chance to cheer
him like he hasn't been cheered
since 1968 when he was their
World Series hero.
The rubber-armed left-hander
who could become the all-time
one season workhorse in recent
AL history this year-was Man-
ager Earl Weaver's choice to
pitch the last two innings. Ex-
cept for Clemente's blast, he re-
tired the other six batters to
pressure the victory for 21-year-
old starter Vida Blue, who was
the hardest hit AL hurler.
"Lolich was the right pitcher
for the last couple innings,"
Baltimore's Weaver s a i d. "He
knows what he's doing and he
knows the park. He beats the
Orioles here all the time and
we've got a good hitting club."
So far this, season the 30-
year-old pot-bellied pitcher has
a 14-6 record in 25 starts. He
has an earned run average of
2.96 with 13 complete games and
207 innings pitched.

He has never won 20 games,
which is his foremost goal, but
this year he should have no
trouble, with some credit be-
longing to first-year Tiger Man-
ager Billy Martin.
"Martin . . . now there's a
real manager," Lolich said.
"He makes me feel like I'm
his No. 1 pitcher. I don't get
any special consideration. He
treats everybody alike. But he's
got some compassion and he's
fair. If you make a mistake,
he'll chew you out and forget
about it.

SPORTS ROUND-UP:
Phil Olsen follows
brother to Rams

By The Associated Press
FULLERTON. Calif. ___.Phil
Olsen, sought by nost profes-
sional football teams, will join
his all-pro brother Merlin as a
defensive tackle with the Los
Angeles Rams, the National
Football League team announced
yesterday.
Phil, 23, became a free agent
after discovering a loophole in
his contract with the New Eng-
land Patriots.
The 6-foot-5, 265-pound All-
American from Utah State re-
ceived a three-year contract
with a bonus-terms otherwise
undisclosed-to join the Rams,
one of 20 teams which he said
sought his services.
Tony C. reconsiders
BOSTON -- Tony Conigliaro
left the question of his baseball
future open yesterday but dis-
closed a medical report which
said it would be "difficult or
impossible" for him to judge a
pitched baseball with his injured
left eye.
Conigliaro said that after be-
coming extremely agitated over
his inability at times to see the
baseball, he had perhaps over-
reacted in announcing his re-
tirement last Saturday in Cali-
fornia.
He said he talked earlier this
week with Gene Autry, owner of
the California Angels, who sug-
gested going on the disabled list
and taking a rest. He said he
favored that, but in view of the
latest examination he was not
sure now of his status.
He said he has not spoken
with Autry since the results be-
came known.

No fooling!

tour, has turned serious this week as lie prepares for the Western
Open. This surprising shift in his character comes about just as
he is the heavy favorite to win the tournament and its $30,000
first prize.
