By The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA - St. Louuis relief pitcher Al
Hrabosky says he's so rattled over losing half of
his dual personality that he doesn't think he'll be
able to play with the Cardinals next-year.
"I really liked being the 'Mad Hungarian,"'
he said.
"ON THE FIELD I was the 'Mad Hungarian',
who was an insane maniac obsessed with win-
ning and would go to any length to do that,"
he said. "And off the field since I could let off
my frustration and emotions through the 'Mad
Hungarian' I could be a happy person through
Al Hrabosky.
"He was an extension of my personality. I
felt like I was a schizophrenic."
The 'Mad Hungarian' met his end this spring
when Cardinals' Manager Vern Rapp instituted a
grooming code that doomed the fiery relief pitch-
er's Fu Manchu mustache and long hair. Alas,
Al Hrabosky says he couuld no longer be happy
off the field.

"IT'S BEEN one of the most traumatic years
I've ever experienced," he said in the interview.
"It's been total frustration.
"Now the hair and the mustache is not going
to gain velocity on the ball or anything else, but
the psychological warfare I gained through
them - I felt I was a much greater pitcher, a
greater competitor."
tlrabosky had an argument with Rapp over
the directive to shave his mustache and crop his
"UNINTENTIONALLY, Vern Rapp is just kind
of choking me. And it's gotten to be a situation
where I don't think I can play in St. Louis next
"And that has nothing to do with the kind of
person I think Vern Rapp is. I think he's a fine
man. And I think the world of my teammates.
But I have to do what is best for myself.
"It's just that I used to really enjoy myself. I
had so much fun being the 'Mad Huungarian."'

Barnes originally was arrested
for an act of violence, while
King's alleged crimes. involve
no violence.
When King applied for the pro
draft, he seemed to be over his
problems and ready to move
into a prominent role in the
"I enjoyed my years playing
for Coach Mears at Tennessee,"
he claimed. "But I felt I was
ready to move on into the pro-
fessionals. I thought that was
the best thing I could do for
Bernard King."
Bernard's younger brother,
Albert, was the most sought-
after high school player in the
country last year. He will be-
gin attending the University
of Maryland in September.
One would hope that Albert
follows in his brother's footsteps
only on the court.
