Fidrych named to Al-Stars

By The Associated Press
Detroit's rookie sensation
Mark "The Bird" Fidrych and
five-time 20-game- winner Cat-
fish Hunter head the American
League's nine-man All-Star
pitching staff, announced yes-
terday by Boston Red Sox Man-
ager Darrell Johnson.
National League manager
Sparky Anderson also announc-
ed his staff yesterday, which
includes Randy Jones, the win-
ningest pitcher in the major
Johnson, manager of the
American Leaguers for the
47th All-Star game July 13
at Philadelphia, hopes his

staff of five starters and four
relievers can reverse the
trend that has carried the
National Leaguers to victory
in 12 of the last 13 mid-sea-
son games, including last
year's 6-3 triumph.
Besides Fidrych and Hunter,
Johnson named starters Frank
Tanana (California), Luis Tiant
(Boston), Bill Travers (Milwau-
Relievers Rollie Fingers (Oak-
land), Sparky Lyle (New York),
Dave LaRoche (Cleveland) and
Rich Gossage (Chicago) round
out the staff. Fidrych, Tanana,
Travers and LaRoche are new-

comers to the classic.
Fidrych, the exciting, non-con-
formist righthander leads the
regular AL pitchers with a 1.85
ERA and a 9-1 record. He has
caught the imagination of thou-
sands of Tiger fans who pack
the stadium each time he pitch-
es, and impressed almost every-
one he faces.
Hunter has been named to
eight All-Star squads, pitched
in five of the games, and lost'
twice. He is 10-7 so far this
Other starters' records: Tiant,
10-5; Tanana, 10-5; and Trav-
ers, 9-6. Lyle tops the relievers
with 16 saves, while Fingers has

11 and LaRoche has 10. Tanana,
Travers, Lyle and LaRoche are
the squad's lefties.
The left - handed National
Leaguer Jones is 15-3 with a
2.51 ERA this season. Join-
ing him on the NL team are
New York Mets Jon Matlack
and Tom Seaver, Rick Rhoden
(Los Angeles) Andy Messer-
smith (Atlanta), John Monte-
fuso (San Francisco), Woody

Fryman (Montreal), and Ken
Forsch (Houston).
Forsch, with a 1-2record and
1.93 ERA, is the only reliever
on the eight-man squad.
The other records: Rhoden,
8-0, 2.76; Messersmith, 8-6, 2.37;
Montefusco, 7-8, 3.31; Fryman,
8-6, 3.60; Seaver, 8-5, 2.92; Mat-
lack, 10-2, 2.62.
Fryman, Matlack and Jones
are the lefties on the staff.

'Fast, true' course awaits
stellar British Open field

By The Associated Press
SOUTHPORT, England -
The Royal Birkdale links
here today looks like every's
golfers dream of what a course
should be on the opening day,
of the 94th British Open.
The 7,001 yard, par-72 course,
burnished by weeks of hot sun
and fanned by the lightest of
breezes floating in from the
sea, was playing fast and true
and according to Gary Player,
winner of the 1974 Open, "I am
absolutely positive the tourna-
ment record is going to be bro-
That record stands at 276,,
set first by Arnold Palmer in

es will be taken Saturday,

1962 and equalled 11 years
later by Tom Wesikopf. Both
were recorded at Troon.
Neither Weiskopf nor Palmer
has so far ventured any pre-
dictions thout what will happen
to their record, although Jack
Nicklaus - still the bookies' fa-
vorite at 4-1 despite an unevent-
ful year thus far - suggested
things might not be all that
After a weekend practice
round he said the course is
playing so hard that low scores
may not be the rule, especially
for the long hitters who might
be in danger of over-hitting the
Nicklaus heads a 27-man U.
S. contingent that includes
Tom Watson, last year's Open
winner at Carnoustie; Mas-
ters winner Ray Floyd; Hale
Irwin, last year's Piccadilly
World Match Play champion;
Johnny Miller; Weiskopf, the
1973 British Open titlist, and
present U.S. Open champ Jer-
ry Pate.
Pate is the man the gallery
will be mainly interested in
when the tournament begins.
He left Britain last year with
the record of losing all four of
his Walker Cup matches, then
going out in the first round of
the British Amateur and failing
to qualify for the British Open.
Butt, after turning professional
he did a complete about-face
and won the U. S. Open last

Missing this year will be Lee
Trevino, who is suffering from
a strained back muscle. But
three former winners will be
turning out once again - Gene
Sarazen, Sam Snead, and South
African Bobby Locke.
Sarazen won the Open at
Sandwich in 1932, while Snead
won the first post-war Open at
St. Andrews in 1946.
Altogether, 155 golfers will
tee off in pursuit of the $13,500
winner's check.
