The longtime New York Yankee team-mates are the newest members of baseball's Hall of Fame. Mantle, eligible for the first AMOYCAPP time, and Ford, on the ballot for the second time, both received more than the required 75 per cent of the 365 ballots cast by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Mantle was named on 322 ballots and Ford on 284 with 272 the number necessary for election. They will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, N.Y., this summer. Pitcher Robin Roberts was third in the balloting with 224 votes and slugger Ralph Kiner finished fourth with 215. "I'm just glad we got in together," said Ford, nodding at Vlauch predicts better season MONTREAL (CP) - Gene Mauch, voted baseball's man-ager-of-the-year in 1973 for keeping his Montreal Expos as a pennant contender until the final days of the season, Wednesday predicted even better things for his National League club in 1974.

But Mauch said he had abandoned that practice in favor of a more realistic prediction for the coming year. Laker, Bulldog showdown What could possibly be one of the biggest showdowns of the 1973-74 Southwest Conference Boys' Basketball League will come to pass Friday night. The big showdown will feature the Stirling Lakers and Winston Churchill Bulldogs, who have yet to taste defeat this season. Both clubs currently share top spot in the eight-team conference with identical 6-0 records. The 32-minute tie-breaker will be staged in Stirling. Meanwhile in other conference games, Picture Butte Sugar Kings are at Coaldale, Fort Macleod Flyers are at Taber and Milk River Comets are at Vauxhall. In Southwest Conference Girls' Basketball League action, Coaldale Larks visit Picture Butte and Fort Macleod Meteors travel to Taber. A pair of games will be staged in the Southern Alberta 'A " Boys' Basketball League Friday night. The Raymond Comets will take on the Rams at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and the Catholic Central Cougars face the Cougars in Cardston. The Magrath Zeniths won't be idle as they travel to Calgary for an exhibition game against Sir Winston Churchill High School. Last year the Expos emerged as a full-fledged pennant contender in the East Division of the National League-the first time since joining baseball as an expansion team in 1969. They finished fourth in the six-team division 3^ games behind the pennant-winning New York Mets. The Expos put together a 79-83 won-lost 'record for a .488 average. Mauch said he feels the club is capable of playing .500 ball in 1974 and, more importantly, no longer is labelled an "expansion team" by other teams in the league. "When we go to training camp next month we'll have the best group of players we've ever had," he said.. But while Mauch appeared more set on the player situation this year than ever before, his coaching staff remained partly in limbo. Third-base codch Dave Bristol has been reported as a candidate to succeed Dick Williams as manager with the American League Oakland Athletics and has the Expos blessing to find a manager's position. Also firstbase coach Larry Doby has departed for Cleveland Indians. 'We're still not sure of the Bristol situation," Mauch said. "We're going to have to wait around and see what happens. He's willing to come back and we want him back if he doesn't get a manager's job " Mauch said that Duke Snider, the former Dodger great and now a color man on the �xpos weekly television game, will succeed Doby as batting instructor during spring training and possibly on a part-time basis throughout the season. The manager was asked to what extent his club will miss ace reliever Mike Marshall, traded to Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for centre fielder Willie Davis. Marshall recorded 14 wins and 31 saves for the Expos last season. SPECIAL PURCHASE iil------TOP QUALITY SNOWMORILE CLOTHING  JACKETS 50% BOOTS Off! LIMITED QUANTITY!

Mantle was a country boy from Commerce, Okla., a shy slugger who never felt at home in the big city but achieved stardom with a talent for hitting a baseball farther than most other players. Ford was a product of the city, born and bred in New York and tossing a combination of guile and ability that made him one of the game's best pitchers. They arrived in New York a year apart in the early 1950s and discovered an affinity for each other. It was a partnership that flourished during the Yankee glory years when Mantle and Ford as team-mates and room-mates led the club to repeated American League pennants and world cham- Mantle's awesome power produced 536 career home runs- most ever by a switch-hitter- and Ford's crafty style was good for a 236-106 record and a .690 percentage, best ever among pitchers with more than 200 victories. BROKE BABE'S MARKS Both broke World Series records owned by Babe Ruth- Mantle for home runs and Ford for consecutive scoreless innings. They were an all but unbeatable combination on the field and relished each other's company off it. "We always enjoyed being around each other," said Mantle who was also an outstanding outfielder. As Stars, the two studied each other and shared great admiration for each other's talents. "I don't think I'd have had much luck getting him out," Ford said of Mantle. "I wasn't fast enough to get my stuff past him." Mantle smiled at the compliment and returned one. "I loved to play when Whitey was pitching," he said. "He would break off three or four curves on a hitter and then he'd come in with that fast ball. The batter would jump back and he'd be out of there. Whitey was sneaky fast. He'd sneak the ball by you." "I miss New York," Mantle said. "I miss people yelling out at me when I get into a cab, .saying, 'Hey, Mick, wadda ya know, Mick?' In Dallas, nobody knows I'm there. "Sometimes I catch a plane in Dallas and people will say, 'Hey, Mickey, what are you doing here?' and I'll say, 'I live here-I've lived here 17 years.'" He also misses the thrills of the game. "Baseball was just a series of thrills for me," he said. "There were so many and they came so fast I didn't appreciate them. Now I do. People are always sending me scrapbooks. I must have 29 or 30. I keep one by my bed all the time." Where will Aaron open? CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds, in announcing their 1974 home baseball schedule, said today that the Atlanta Braves and slugger Henry Aaron will open the National League season with a three-game series at Riverfront Stadium. The Reds say the schedule is official, thus conflicting with an earlier National League statement which had the Braves opening in San Francisco. Aaron needs only one home run to tie Babe Ruth's all-time record of 714. "We are going on the assumption that San Diego Padres are staying in San Diego in 1974," said a Reds' spokesman. "We're reasonably sure of that and we couldn't wait any longer." It still hasn't been decided whether the Padres will remain in San Diego or move to Washington. Cincinnati traditionally stages the season opener before other major league clubs. The Reds were baseball �s first professional team and Cincinnati is noted for its avid baseball interest. The opener is set for 2:30 p.m. Thursday. April 4. Aaron has hit more home runs against Cincinnati than against any other National League club. Mickey and Whitey Slugger Mickey Mantle, left, and pitcher Whitey Mantle It was his first year of eligibility.

Goaltending honors will be shared by Larry Hendrick of Edmonton and Garth Malarchuk of Calgary. Calgary Centennials' coach Scotty Munro was selected to lead the western division all-stars. He will choose eight more players to round out his squad of 20. Meanwhile forward Ryan Wecker of Medicine Hat Tigers was suspended Wednesday for three games as a result of a match penalty Jan. 13 in a Western Canada Hockey League game with Saskatoon Blades. League president Ed Chynoweth issued the sentence and said it would have been more severe except Wecker had only seven minutes in penalties before the incident. i ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Minor hockey John Csurka rifled in a hat-trick and led the Totems to a 4-2 victory over the Pintos in a Pee Wee contest Wednesday night. Gary Heathcoat chipped in a solo effort in the win while Gerrald Saccardo and Wayne Parenteau replied for the Pintos. In another Pee Wee match, the Sabres dropped the Blues 5-2. Greg Horon paced the Sabres, with a pair of goals with singles going to Leigh-Aaron Harrison, Ron Terakita and Rick Williams.
