The 48-year-old coach managed the biggest sports upset since when the New York Mets won the World Series. Fred Shero considered a complex enigma PHILADELPHIA Since he led Philadelphia Flyers to the National Hockey League coach Fred Shero has undergone more analyses than a presidential election. Shero has been referred to as a complex harder to understand than a genius. Whatever he the 48-year-old Shero is understood by his players.

Foyt favored to win Indy 500 INDIANAPOLIS A. J. Foyt will be the favorite and defending champion Gordon Johncock part of the silent majority Sunday when 33 cars compete in the 58th Indianapolis 500-mile race. The race is scheduled to get underway at noon EDT and the forecast is for partly sunny cool temperatures and a very small chance of showers. The 1973 race was plagued by rain and cold. It was postponed twice and had to be delayed for more than five hours on the day it finally was run. Last year's race also was a tragic with driver Swede Savage suffering fatal burns in a crash during his 58th lap. One of the pit Armando was killed when struck by a Speedway emergency vehicle in the pits. Driver Salt Walther was critically along with several in a crash that aborted the start on the original race day. Veteran driver Art Pollard had been killed earlier in a crash during practice. Johncock won when the race was flagged to a halt because of rain after only 133 of the scheduled 200 laps. He had covered miles. The story goes that winning at Indianapolis is worth million to the driver in name commercials and speaking engagements. But .one year Johncock's image is not notably changed from what it was a journeyman driver. guess you could say that last year's race was a tainted victory for he said. somebody's got'to win the tained The starting field also in- cludes four other past Indy champs. sitting in the pole position for the third is going after an unprecedented fourth victory.

SPORT FANS By GARY KIRK Although records are made to be did you ever realize how many baseball records have NOT been broken in this country No big league regular has made a higher season batting average than Hugh Duffy's .438 in 1894 Nobody has stolen more bases than Harry Stovey's 156 in 1888 No pitcher has won more than 60 games in a season as Hoss Radbourn did in 1884 And. no pitcher has struck out as many as 505 batters in one season as Mathew Kilroy did in 1886. Here's a tricky quattion What uniform number did bateball great Ty Cobb during hit .Oddly Cobb never had a number on hit uniform in all the he played in the big leaguM the reason was that Cobb retired in 1928 and the major leagues did not start putting on their players until 1931 .Thus many top stars of the past went through their whole careers without ever having a number on their uniforms. Ever wonder what was the longest tennis match in The record was set in a doubles match in which Mark Cox and Bob Wilson defeated Charlie Pasarell and Rom Holmberg at Salisbury. in 1968 by scores of 26-24. 17-19. 30-28 That match took six hours and 23 minutes to set the all-lime official record.
