(AP Wirepholo) at Milwaukee BOSTON (AP) Del Cran- dall, an old Milwaukee favorilo during a brilliant playing career with the Braves, is returning "home" as manager- of the American League's Brewers. Crandall. 42. was promoted from Evansville of the Ameri- can Association .Sunday as Dave Bristol was firnd afler 30 games inlo his Ihird season as field boss of (he Brewers. 'It's like going home Crandall told The Associated Pre.ss in a telephone interview from Evansville. "My feeling is beyond description. Imagine be- coming a major league man- ager, and then in Milwaukee." Crandall spent IS years with Uie Brnfcs, two in Boston and 11 in Milwaukee, before winding up m outstanding playing car- eer with one-year slops in San dall played against the Yankees in the 1957 and 1953 World Ser- ies. Wilh a 10-20 record, the poor- est in the major leagues, under Bristol, and averaging fewer than 7.000 a game at home, the Brewers were forced to take action.

Bristol, Tired afler four sea- sons as manager of Cincinnati Reds, was picked np almost im- mediately as the Brewers were in the process of moving from Seatlle lo Milwaukee in 1970. He rejected an offer from Cleve- land Indians last fall, elccling to remain with Milwaukee on a onc-ycnr extension of a (wo-year conlrad. "There was no question thai Dave worked hard, but he may Francisco, Pills burgh and I have worked too hard and possi- Cleveland.

The Astros look a 4-3 lead into the ninth Inning against the Dodgers wilh Larry Dierkcr working on a sivliiller. But Duke Sims opened with a double and Bill Russell singled him to third. That brought on Jim Ray, the Astros' relief ace, and when he walked Wes Parker, it loaded the bases. COLLISION YIELDS RUN Pinch hitter Frank Robinson lofted a sacrifice fly, but when Jesus Alou ran into Cesar Ced- eno, he jarred the ball loose and one run scored with the bases remaining loaded. A Holder's choice grounder by Bill Bnckner brought the tying run home. Two innings later, the Dodg- ers won it. Second baseman Bobby Fenwick threw Russell's leadoff grounder away for au error. Russell moved up on a sacrifice and afler Steve Garvey bounced oul, first base- man Lee May kicked Bobby Valentine's grounder, allowing the winning run to score. Don Kessinger's eighth inning Ihrowing error allowed Mont- real to score its winning run against Chicago but the Cubs had sel the lone way hack In the second when a pah1 of errors by Carmen Fanzone led to two runs for the Expos. Ken Singlelon opened with a walk and wilh one oul, Fanzone kicked Tim Foil's grounder. A sacrifice advanced the runners and then Fanzone fumbled Ron Hunt's bouncer, allowing Single- ton to score and Foli to reach third. The Expos rubbed sail in Ihe wound, working the double steal with Foli swiping home on the front end. With the score tied at 5-5 in the eighth, Foli beat out an in- field hit and then circled the bases on a fielder's choice and Kessinger's wild throw. Vida Blue had a pretty good start Sunday, but George Hend- rick provided an even beller fin- ish. Blue, Oakland Athletics1 cele- brated holdoul, made his firsl 1972 slart and pitched fivo scoreless innings against Chi- cago White Sox, allowing only one hit and fanning five before he left for a pinch hitler. "I think five innings was just about said the 22-year- old southpaw who had an 30- pitch limit and used 77 of them. The American League gamt was scoreless when Blue de parted. The Alhlelics took a 3-0 lead in the sixth inning but the While Sox scored once in the eighth, twice in the ninth and once in the 10th for a 4-3 lead. But with two oul in the last of Ihe lOlh, Mike Hegan singled off Steve Kealcy and Hendrick blasted his first major league home run for a 5-4 Oakland triumph.

Elton White signs with Raiders NEW YORK (AP) .New York Haiders of Ihe World Hockey Association have signed the fledgling league's first black player, it was reported Sunday night by sportscasler Guy LeBow on ths NBC network radio program Monitor. LeBow said the Raiders are expected lo officially announce later this week that Alton White, a native of Amlierst, N.S., has signed a multi-year contract. The live-loot-nine, 174-pound right winger has been playing for Providence Reds of the American Hockey League for the last four years, scoring 84 goals and 90 assists hi 110 games. The 1971-72 season was While's best. He was among the AHL's top 20 scorers with 30 goals and 3-) assists for 64 points, and was named the most valuable player on the Provi- dence team, a farm club o[ New York Rangers. Only one other black has ever played major league hockey. CAN'T GET ON W I DECIMALISATION Something to behold C ge MUNICH, West Germany (Reuter) A new Olympic City, made of tinted glass and steel, lowers like a space-age fantasy over the oulikirls of Munich. And Bavarians preparing to play host next August at West G e r m a n y 's first Olympic Games since Adolf Hitler are still arguing whether the style is right and the price loo high. A huge plexiglass roof soars and swoops over the main sladiums ui a series of eccen- tric curves. Transparent pan- els will protect spectators from glare without affecting color television pictures. They will automatically spring open m case of fire and smoke. The ndvenlurous structure, supported by stout sleel haw- swers from 12 leaning pylons, rises 216 feet at its highest peak above the deep diving pool. Most Bavarians call Prof. Guntcr Behuisch's concept an engineering miracle. Others less complimentary have compared the 92.000 square yards roof to a collapsed cir- cus tent. "Exciting beauli- !ul? Well, that's another said one of the thou- sands of visitors who crowd the Olympic area at week- ends. And it's a hard fact thai the cosl of the roof has jumped from the originally eslimaled S5 million to a staggering S50 million. Steel-hatted construction workers in special suction boots walk like flies over the shimmering roof to complete the main stadium. Some 195 feet below there is already a lush green look about the pitch, healed with subterra- nean water pipes. The airy swimming hall contains two extra, lull-size, practice pools underground.
