Oliva has won the batting championship two straight years with averages of .323 and .321, respectively and is seeking to become the first Pinch hitter yanks offered Williams Post retirement contract by Milton Richman new York us a now that Ted Williams is in the Hall of Fame it s time to blow the whistle on him by disclosing two of his deepest secrets. They merely prove that Here s one Man who always puts his word and his Pride far above Money or anything else. The Story of How the red sox and Yankees actually traded Williams for Joe Demaggio one night in 1948 and then called the whole thing off next Day is generally known now. But the fact that Williams was offered his same regular contract by the Yankees just to Pinch hit for them in 1961 after he retired from the red sox is not generally known because he did t go around blabbing about it. Nor did he Ever go around talking about the two Bona fide offers he had to manage the Detroit tigers and another american league club whose identity is Best left guessed at because it probably would shake up the incumbent manager. Williams offer from the Yankees came during the fall of 1960 after he had publicly announced he had played his last game with the red sox. One Day Yankee president Dan Topping happened to run into Fred Corcoran Ted s longtime Friend and personal manager and the conversation got around to Williams. Quot you know Quot said Topping Quot i be always admired the Guy and i tried to get him once from Boston in 1948. Do you think he d come with us now just to Pinch hit that s All he d have to do nothing else. And i la pay him the same thing Boston Quot ill have to ask him Quot said Corcoran. So he did and Williams answer was a Quick definite no. Quot i started with Tom Yawkey and finished with him Quot declared the Strong willed left handed slugger. Quot he treated me great. I d never play for anyone else. But the next time you see him i wish you d thank Dan Topping for it was right around that time also that the tigers and that other Al club were looking around for a manager but Williams rejected both bids. Quot thanks a lot Quot he told the people who contacted him Quot but i would t make a Good curiously that was virtually the same thing Dimaggio said when newsmen asked him if he was interested in managing after he quit playing for the Yankees. Quot it s Tough enough trying to manage myself Quot declared Dimaggio. Quot i would want to try managing 25 not so much the pitchers but the other players miss not having Williams around. They always Felt free to go to him and ask for batting tips. Occasionally even the pitchers would come to him for advice. Ralph Terry then with the Yankees and now with the a a once did telling Williams he was having trouble getting the hitters out. Ted told him to try developing a Slider. Shortly thereafter Terry faced Williams in a Ball game and he thought he d fool him with his new Slider. Williams promptly blasted it for a tremendous double against the Center Field Fence. From his Perch on second base Ted cupped his hands and hollered into Terry Quot see what i mean. You gotta perfect player since Tycobb 1917-1919 to win three in a Row. Elsewhere in the Al Detroit beat Chicago 3-1 before the second half of the doubleheader was rained out Cleveland bested Baltimore 7-4, Boston bombed Kansas City 8-5, and Washington downed California 6-2. Dave Boswell pitched seven innings for the twins and fanned nine Yankees to tie Washington s Pete Richert for the leagues strikeout leadership. He left the game in the eighth after being nicked by a pitch on the right shoulder.

Oriole starter Steve Barber left the game in the second inning with a sore Elbow after serving up Colavi to a first inning blast. Willie Horton went four for four and drove in All three Detroit runs. He doubled Home Norm Cash in the fourth and singled in Al Kaline in the sixth and eighth innings. After giving up two runs in the first inning on Cater s fifth Homer of the season and two singles and a double play that scored another run Bennett settled Down. He allowed eight hits but struck out five and walked just one while being backed up by two Boston double plays. Quot i was getting tired in the seventh inning Quot Bennett continued Quot and probably would t have finished even of Billy had planned to let me Bennett who gave up caters blast on a fast Ball said Quot my fast Ball did t have the zip it had in my other two starts. But then my breaking stuff a my curves and especially my Slider a were working Fine. Could put them just about where i wanted them Quot he said. Boston overcame Kansas City s Early runs by jumping starter and loser Lew Krausse for three runs in the first inning and two More in the second. Joe Foy slammed two homers his Lith and 12th, to Pace the win. Bennett stepped aside for former a s Pitcher John Wyatt at the top of the eighth. The fast Balling reliever zipped through the eighth inning with ease but wag rocked for three runs in the ninth before Don Mcmahon got de Charles on a Force out grounder with two runners on base. Tony Conigliaro the defending american league Home run Champ almost triggered an explosion in the second inning when he was hit on the hands by Krausse. He spun away from the plate started toward first but then headed for the Mound Only to be intercepted by Home plate Umpire Emmett Ashford. Both benches emptied but peace prevailed.
