COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP)
Longevity landed Carlton Fisk and Tony
Perez in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but
one game defined their careers.
Twenty-five years after the Reds and
Red Sox played in the 1975 World
Series, baseball planned to celebrate
one of its greatest moments with the
induction of two of the series' heroes at
Cooperstown.
"To have it come back full circle to
here, I think it's more than a coinci-
dence," Fisk said Saturday on the eve of
the induction. "To be sitting here with
him here, there must have been some-
thing in the stars. And I'm just glad the
stars were shining on us"
Former Cincinnati manager Sparky
Anderson, who was elected by the
Veterans Committee, and longtime
Reds announcer Marty Brennaman,
who will receive the Ford C. Frick
award, will also be there.
Also expected for the impromptu
reunion are previous inductees Joe
Morgan, Johnny Bench and Carl
Yastrzemski - all of whom played in
the '75 Series and its unforgettable
Game 6, which Fisk won with his body-
bending, game-ending homer in the
12th inning.
"I remember when he hit that homer,

I was pulling foul and he was pulliil
fair," Perez said at the inductees neoo
conference. "I also remember that sw
had another game the next day. But tha
home run ended the best game we evc
played in the World Series."
Also being honored in Sunday's cere
mony are Negro League star Norr
"Turkey" Stearnes and Veteran
Committee selection Bid McPhee,
19th Century defensive specialist fo
Cincinnati who was the last second base
man in baseball to play without a glove
Although best known for his Game t
homer, Fisk earned his Hall credential
game by game, catching 2,226 of then
- more than any catcher in history. I1
also hit a major league record 351 of hi:
376 homers as a catcher.
"I think people will connect me vitl
that home run in the 1975 Series," ht
said. "But after that '75 Series I playe(
20 years after that."
Fisk was elected with 79.56 percen
of the votes after a career in which- h
had 2,356 hits and 1,330 RBIs and wsa
selected to the All-Star team I I times
Although he spent I1 years with thk
Red Sox and 13 with the White Sox, tht
native New Englander will be enshritnec
wearing a Boston cap.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) -
Tiger Woods strolled over tile Swilken
Bridge and into history yesterday vith a
performance never before seen on a
course swhere golf has been played for
more than 500 years.
It was a fitti xav for Woods to win
the British Open at the home of golf,
making him the youngest placer ever to
complete the career Grand Slam.
The game has never seen anything like
this.
Delirious fans tried to leap over the
Siilken Burn to watch Woods finish off'
another masterpiece. Ie didn't disap-
point them, making a par on the 18th
hole for a 69 that set another benchmark
for sears to coie.
He finished at 19-under 269, the low-
est score in relation to par ever at a major
championship.
Woods beat back a brief scare from
David Duval to become only the fiflth
player to win all four majors, the first
since Jack Nicklaus won the 1966 British
Open at 26.
hie 24-year-old Woods seems to be

racing toward the record that matters the
most - the 18 majors Nicklaus won in a
career that remains the standard. For
now.
"Hc is the chosen one. He's the best
player who has played the game rightt
now," said Mark Calcavecchia, who
stuck around St. Andrews to watch histo-
ry in the making. "If Jack was in his
prime today, I don't think he could keep
upl With Tiger"
Comparing eras is never easy, but
Woods' performance in the majors stands
alone.
One month after he demolished the
field in the U.S. Open to win by a record
15 strokes, he won the silver claret jug by
eioht strokes over Ernie Els and Thomas
Bjorn.
It was the largest margin of victory in
the British Open since 1913, when J.H.
aylor won by eight strokes oserTed Ray.
Woods became only the second British
Open champion to win \\ith four rounds
in the (Ils, and he beat by one stroke the
record Nick Faldo set at St. Andrews in
1990.
