High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 23, 1976, High Point, North Carolina A Tou got to do is ask Murray older amp a the Tipoff by the time the season was Over there was almost a state of Mutiny among the new York giants because of the Bridge Between coach Bill Arnsparger and the players. But the giant Bosses Are going to live by their pledge to give Arnsparger a full three years through �?T76 to turn the team around. Q. We Are considerably aware of the offensive ability of Johnny Bench but Don t see statistics about his defensive abilities such As How he ranked in Fielding percentage successful theft of bases and number of runners picked off base a Dick Ehlers. First Bench has won the Golden Glove picked by writers for defensive ability for All seven of his years in the majors. In �?T74, on Fielding percentage he finished in a virtual dead heat with Milt May of Houston May 9932 Bench 9927. There Are no rankings kept on catchers throwing out runners. During last season Only 48 bases were stolen against the reds and 36 runners were thrown out attempting to steal. Not Many Challenge benches right Arm so figures would t mean much. Q. Please Teil it if possible where can i write to Howard Cosell a Stanley Morask. I was going to suggest Abc sports in new York but its unlikely Howard would get to see the letter personally. Instead try 205 East 63rd St., new York n y. 10017. Q. You said Willie Stargell was the Only Man to hit a Home run out of dodger stadium. My Friend says Wally Post was the first to hit one out of that Park clean Over the left Field Wall. Could you please Clear this up for us Paul Hering or. Your Friend is confused. Actually in 1962, the inaugural year of dodger stadium outfielder Post winding Down his career with Cincinnati was the first Man Ever to hit a Home run there. It went Over the Centerfield Fence but stayed in the Park. Stargell remains the Only Man to Clear barriers. Dodger vets can to even remember one Ever going out in batting practice. Q. Horace Stoneham has repeatedly made the worst trades in baseball history. It has been my feeling Over the years he has traded at least two Quality players in every position. Could you list some who have gone on to Good seasons for other teams a Louis Jay Shapiro. Using Only current rosters i could Field the following team of sex Grants la Willie Mccovey 2b, Tito Fuentes is Frank Duffy 3b, Dave Kingman of George Foster Ken Henderson Bobby Bonds Gary Maddox a fran Healy p. Gaylord Perry. Not a bad lineup but owner Stoneham also picked up von Joshua from the dodgers for the waiver Price and got Bobby Murcer for Bonds. I Don t think his record As a swapper is All that bad Over the years. Of the players mentioned. He has Only been burned by peddling Foster and Perry. Q. When the red sons Are in the Field and make an out other than at first base How come they done to throw the Ball to Carl Yastrzemski a Al Young. You noticed that too0 Well Yaz is 36-years-old and lie s better off conserving his Energy instead of getting into that ceremonial ritual of whipping the Ball abound. Also. He s a natural outfielder not a first baseman and not used to such frills. There a no sinister ostracism in his Lack of participation. Q. What is the rationale a your opinion a about not charging errors for wild pitches and or passed balls pitchers and catchers should be held As accountable As other players. A Ben Watson. They Are held accountable a by the team manager. Wild pitches and passed balls Are Battery errors and not logically grouped with Field errors. That a the rationale in fact a run scored off a wild pitch is considered earned on a passed Ball it s unearned. I might be inclined to score an error on a passed Ball. Q. What do we owe our nation s sportswriters for their pick for the 1975 Heisman trophy a fat Christmas Bonus or a Swift kick in the pants. I chose the latter. With the Snow Job Woody Hayes and company did on the country Archie Griffin is the greatest thing since zoot suits and the Lindy hop. Our fabulous Buckeye just did t have the season he had in 74 when he first won the Heisman. A Bruce Tuttle Cookeville Tenn. That s not a question it s an editorial i happen to agree. I think the Heisman should have gone to Chuck Muncie of California for All around contribution in 1975. Q. I would like information on obtaining tickets for the 1976 olympic games in Montreal. The Montgomery wards Auto club informed me they had no tickets available. A Cathy Yanko Ottawa Iii. They informed you wrong because in mid december i Montgomery Ward spokesman announced that there Vas 467.000 tickets for the Montreal games still writable. The catch was they had to be disposed of before the end of the year or turned Back to the Host country Canada. Parting shot too Many football coaches Over emphasize size in As Messing Talent. Fred dryer of the rams is a great defensive end at 225 pounds dripping wet and Jack Ambert was an amazing Middle linebacker for the super bowl Steeles at 208 pounds. And How about Alvin Jones playing Corner Back for Denver at 5�?T7�?�? Lal clothing outlet i men s sport Coats a i men s Leisure shirts i a Wun pocket 9&Quot i yellow building Oil Tnomas Vii re.
