TRICKEY Very interesting Play ball Baseballs Here again 10 teams in each league By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON About the only thing which appears cer tain a few days before the base ball seasons traditional open Ing game Monday is the name of the starting pitcher for the Washington Senators against Detroit Bennie Daniels A winner of 12 games with the hapless second edition of the Senators in 1961 and a strong performer in practice Daniels this year lookstorbe the Nats star pitcher the ternpta tion to use the term mound artist is s o 1 u t e 1 y avoided It is not certain even at this late date that President Ken nedy will throw out the first ball but it is considered more than likely The President goes in more for active sports golf sailboat racing and the much writtenup touch football than for spectator sports but he is not oblivious of the fact that the baseball fan of today is the voter of November Some 18923217 rooters paid their way into big league games in 1961 plus another 233247 who attended the World Series This was by no means a record nor even evidence of progress despite the expansion of the American League to ten teams The record paid atten dance for a regular season was 26972201 in 1948 the 1960 total was 19911489 The attendance record is likely to go unchallenged in 1962 even though the National League with the addition of the Los Angeles Angels and the New York Mets is matching the size of the younger circuit This is in large part because of the inroads of television Close to 1000 games may be telecast this year according to Broad casting magazine All 162 games of each team will be broadcast by radio This is not an unmixed disaster Big League teams will realize just over million this year exclusive of the World Series from radio and televi sion game rights Regular rev enues will be swelled by Games of the Week Attendance totals will be en larged by the opening of two new stadiums The one in Wash ington js expected to do stand ingroom business for a turn put of about 47000 for the open ing game granted good weath er TKe SiSmillionplus Chavez Ravine arena which the Dodg ers will rent out to the Angels
