U.S. track team awesome

Bythe Associated Press
STUTTGART, West Germany-
Jimmy Carnes, coach of the U.S.
Olympic track and field team, certainly
liked what he saw in his first glimpse of
his squad in action.
"I'm very satisfied," Carnes said
Friday night after the Americans had
won nine of 15 events in an international
meet in mostly empty 80,000-seat
Neckar Stadium in the Stuttgart suburb
of Bad Cannstatt. Rain and cold
weather held the crowd to an estimated
,5,00-6,000 in the first day of the event.
for this weather," continued Carnes.
"This is the first time they (the
athletes) have been together.
"This would have been a tremendous
warmup meet for the Olympics."
That was the original intent of the
meet, which was scheduled several
months ago, long before the United
States decided to boycott the Summer
Olympic Games in Moscow because of
the Soviet Union's military intervention
in Afghanistan.
Instead of going to the Games, the
Americans are participating in seven
international meets. The Stuttgart
meet is kicking off the schedule. The
team later will perform in London on

If the ensuing meets are anything like
the first night's performance, the tour
will be a four-star success. Of course,
international meets do not carry the
same impact as the Olympics.
"NOTING CAN TAKE the place of
the Olympics," said Karin Smith, run-
nerup in the women's javelin with a toss
of 193 feet, 8 inches, behind teammate
Kate Schmidt, 197-1. "They're special
and nothing can replace them."
Some obviously American fans in the
sparse cr wd, however, were doing
their best'a make the Americans forget
the Olympics and feel at home.
A handful of fans raised a banner

The first time they held it aloft was in
celebration win Moses's runaway vic-
tory in the men's 480-meter inter-
mediate hurdles, a race in which the
Americans swept the first four places.
Moses's triumph in a relatively slow
46.62 seconds, but good considering the
track conditions, had more than the
usual significance.
IT WAS HIS 41st in a row in his
specialty and made him the all-time
leder in the intermediate hurdles. He
previously had shared the record of 40
with Gert Potgeter of South Africa.
James Walker followed Moses across
the finish line in 49.15. Then came
David Lee in 49.68, and Bart Williams in

While the Americans overwhelmed
the rest of the competition in the inter-
mediate hurdles, awesome Mac Wilkins
of the United States dominated the
men's discus. The American record
holder, with a toss of 232 feet, 10 inches
earlier this week in Helsinki, Finland,
won at 224-6 and all six of his throws
sailed over 213-feet.
Other American winners included
Larry Myricks in the men's long jump
at 26-10% and men's co-captain Harvey
Glance in the 100-meter dash in 10.24.
The Americans also swept all four
relays-both the men's and women's
400- and 1,600-meter events.

Baltimore 's infield vandalized

BALTIMORE (AP)-Security is
being beefed up at Memorial Stadium
in the wake of vandalism that left an
obscene phrase burned into the infield
The city's Department of Parks and
Recreation, which runs the stadium,
has announced that uniformed police
have started guarding the arena at
InI addition, all but one gate at the
stadium where the baseball Baltimore
Orioles and football Baltimore Colts
play will be locked when events are not
being held there, the agency said Thur-
Those entering through the single
unlocked gatt will be required to sign in
and out, said Steve Crosby, assistait
superintendent of parks. In the past, as
many as four unguarded gates were left
open during the daylight and evening
Vandals defaced the field during
the night of July 2. The Boston Red Sox
and the Orioles opened a four-
game stand the following night, but the
slur could not be disguised prior to the
first game that was televised in Boston.
Additional meetings were held
Friday with officials to discuss other
security measures such as increasing
the height of the center field fence or
wiring it with a burglar alarm to warn
guards that intruders have climbed the
barrier, Crosby said.

Someone has even recommended
guard dogs, but Crosby said the police
"don't have enough guard dogs to send
a detail over, and the dogs can't work
overtime. They get tired and ineffec-
No Giant firstbaseman
Rich Murray, the only first baseman on
the San Francisco Giants' roster after
the recent retirements of Willie Mc-
Covey and Mike Ivie, will probably
miss the rest of the season because of a
finger injury, the National League
team said Friday.
Murray, whosuffered ligament
damage to the ring finger of his right
hand during the Giants' 9-2 victory over
the San Diego Padres Thursday, was
plced on the 60-day disabled list and "is
probably through for the season," said
Giants spokesman Stu Smith. Murray is
scheduled for surgery on the finger,
Smith said.
Regular third baseman Darrell
Evans will temporarily take over at fir-
st, Smith said.
To fill the roster vacancy, the Giants
recalled catcher Dennis Littlejohn from
Phoenix of the Pacific Coast League. In
52 games, this season, Littlejohn has
batted .321.
Grimslgey to Cleveland
MONTREAL (AP)-Montreal Expos

pitcher Ross Grimsley has been sold to
the Cleveland Indiansof the American
League, the National League baseball
team announced Friday.
The Expos, currently in first place in
the NL East Division, will receive an
undisclosed amount of cash and the
contract of infielder Dave Oliver,
assigned from Tacoma of the Triple-A
Pacific Coast League to Memphis of the
Class AA Southern League.
Grimsley, a left-hander, had a 2-4
won-lost record and a 6.37 earned run
average in 411/ innings this season.
Signed by the club as a free agent on
Dec. 5, 1977, Grimsley became the first
Expos pitcher in their 11-year historyto
record 20 victories, posting a 20-11
record in 1978.
Last season, however, he slipped to a
10-9 mark with a 5.36 ERA.
Grimsley has complained frequently
this year about not being used often
enough and had asked to be traded'if
not reinserted into the team's starting
His last appearance with the Ex-
pos-one inning-was last Saturday in
New York against the Mets.
NBC gets out of Moscow
Olympic leaders Friday stepped up a
bid to get an outstanding $15 million out
of NBC, which is not now covering the
Olympic Games in Moscow.
Monique BerIloux, director of the In-
ternational Olympic Committee, said
$10 million of this is due to the Moscow
Organizing Committee and $5 million to
the IOC itself.
NBC bought the television rights to
the Moscow Olympics for $35 million,
plus another $50 million for satellite
equipment. But it pulled out of
televising the games when the United
States decided not to compete in protest
over the Soviet military action in
