Paige 65 years' old KANSAS CITY (AP) Satchel Paige's secret is out: He's 65 years old. 01' Satch, whose age has long been a mystery, revealed Sunday night at a testimonial dinner in his honor that he was born July 7, 1906, at Mo- bile, Ala. Satch had the proof: verifi- cation of his birth from the Mobile County Health Depart- ment. Paige could have put a stop to all of the guessing about liis age more than years ago if he had so but the baseball Hall of Fame litchcr liked to keep people wondering. The birth verifica- tion was dated Jan. 7, 19G9. So Gt means that Paige, who played baseball 42 years, was 42 years old when Bill Veeck brought him to the major leagues for the first ime, to pilch for the Cleve- 'and Indians in 1948. Paige won six and lost one n Cleveland's 1948 American League pennant winning drive. Later, he was in the majors with the old S't. Louis ?rowns in 1951-53 and with the Kansas City Athletics in 1905, at age 59. Most of his career was spent in Ihe Negro cagues. MAXWKM, SCORES ONCE NELSON, B.C.

"Miller did a great said Murtaugh. "He hasn't been out- standing lately. But I thought he was outstanding out there for four innings against the Giants." The right-hander had some tough work to do when starter Dock Ellis, the Pirates' 19-game winner, got in hot water in the sixth inning. The first two bat- ters reached base, one hit by a pitch and the other with a base hit, and Miller came in to pro- tect a 4-2 lead. Miller got pinch-hitter Frank Duffy to bunt foul for a third strike, but slipped deeper into quicksand when he walked Ken Henderson to load the bases. Then he struck out Tito Fuentes and got out of the jam when Willie Mays lined to Roberto llemenle in right. "If there was a key play, it when Miller struck out Fuentes in the said Mur- taugh.
