Gaylord's spitter irks
Billy, baffles umps
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - The baseball season wouldn't be official
until someone complained that Gaylord Perry of the Texas
lzangers was doing something illegal to the balls.
The baseball season now is official.
The New York Yankees did the complaining last
night after Perry whipped them 1-0 on six scattered
singles in the second game of a twi-night doubleheader.
"lie threw a lot of greaseballs, no question about it,"
said Manager Billy Martin, who managed Texas and Perry
in 1975. "But he's one heckuva competitor. I'm going to
hire him as a pitching coach when he quits just to teach
that pitch because the umpires never call it . except
once when I had him they called it."
Since Martin managed him, someone wanted to know
if he also knew all of Perry's hiding places for what every-
one claims is a jelly-like substance.
"Sure," Martin replied. "His eyebrows, his side-
burns, the side of his pants, the back of his hair, every-
where. You stand next to him and be smells like a drug-
Stand next to an umpire, though, and Perry comes out
smelling like a rose.
"I must have checked the ball 18 times," said Al Clark,
the plate umpire for Perry's latest pitching masterpiece,
"and I never felt a'iy slippery stuff."
Graig Nettles played with Perry in Cleveland and in-
sists he puts simething on the ball. But, says Nettles, com-
plaining "is like beating your head against the wall."
And what does Perry think about this latest grease-
"I really respect Billy," he says. "But he'd do anything
to beat me . . . and I'd do anything to beat him."
St. Louis Cardinal speedster Lou Brock didn't quite make this one, as Philadelphia third baseman
Mike Schmidt puts the tag on him in the ninth inning of the Cards 4-3 victory. Brock was trying to
move from first to third after teammate Dave Ra dar singled.
