Hogman returns to Arkansas
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Look! There on the basketball floor! Houston may have beaten Arkansas earlier this season, but they didn’t have to contend with anything like this!
“Hog Man” is back.
The guy in the basketball uniform, red cape and plastic hog hat is to make his second appearance ever Thursday when the fifth-ranked Razorbacks take on No. I Houston at Barnhill Arena. Arkansas Coach Eddie Sutton has said the game may be the biggest in Southwest Conference history.
“I’ve just had so many people come up to me and ask if we’d bring him back that I finally said, ‘Okay we’ll do it,’” Jim Robken, who directs the Arkansas Hogwild Band, said Tuesday of Hog Man.
Hog Man’s premier was at last year’s Arkansas-Texas basketball game. Robken said he “got put in a fire” over that; "There were some people who felt like Hog Man was just a little too much.”
But he has no apprehensions about bringing back music major Jose Diaz of Chicago as Hog Man for the Houston game, probably during a first-
half timeout. “I feel like since we haven’t gone overboard with it, this one time it will be fine.”
Other than that, the spirit-boosting activities for the game will be pretty routine, he said, except there may be some extra signs hanging in the band’s corner of Barnhill Arena.
Also, Robken said, 9,000 wallet-size cards with the words to the song, "Hard To Be Humble” will be passed out. The song ends, “Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you’re a Razorback fan.”

By ASSOCIATED PRESS
Owner George Steinbrenner, who has promised to remain silent even if the New York Yankees lose every exhibition game, has indicated it may be different once the season starts.
“If Billy Martin can’t win with ti'is team, we can never win,” Steinbrenner said Tuesday at the Yankees’ spring training camp in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Steinbrenner said he would “have to shoulder some of the blame for our poor showing last season,” referring to the Yankees’ finish one game out of last place in the American League East. “I probably demanded and meddled too much.
“I think from the top down the whole team is embarrassed and disgraced by the performance. I get the feeling that all the guys are eager to redeem themselves. I sense a different attitude out there. Guys like Goose Gossage, John Mayberry and others coming in with their weights down. They’re all businesslike and working hard. Personally I think this team has as much all-around talent as the 1977 (world championship! team, which I have considered our best — maybe even more ” Meanwhile, in West Palm Beach, Fla., Atlanta's Bob Horner passed his first test as a left fielder and showed that no matter what position he plays he can still hit. Horner had only one chance defensively in an intrasquad game and handled it flawlessly. At the plate, he smacked a home run — off Phil Niekro — and triple in twoat-bats.
"I didn't feel bad in left," Horner said. "After I had played two or three innings it wasn't that big a deal. It's just so com
pletely different from third base, which is a razor’s edge on every play. I’m much more relaxed in the outfield.”
At Winter Haven, Fla., the Boston Red Sox welcomed 43-year-old Carl Yastr-zemski to camp for his 23rd major league season. Yastrzemski, who says he will retire after this season, said that move could come sooner if he can’t contribute.
“If I can’t help the ballclub win a pennant, there’s no possible way I’m going to hang on,” he said. “There’s no way I can sit on the bench and pinch hit once in a while, no way. What I’ve done in 22 years I’m not going to tear down in one year or two months or three months.”
Tuesday was second baseman Manny Trillo’s first full day with the Cleveland Indians and he said he could feel the spotlight on him.
“It was strange. I got everybody’s attention,” said Trillo, who was acquired from Philadelphia in an off-season trade. “It’s not like the first day with the Phillies. Everyone was with Pete (Rose) or Mike (Schmidt).”
The trade of five Phillies for outfielder Von Hayes still bothers Trillo, for more than one reason.
"Right now, for us it is really a good deal," he said. "It would have been a good deal, me for him (Hayes), straight up, one on one. I really think I got thrown out with the trash. I still consider myself a good ballplayer. At least four of us should make the team.”
Also, Trillo indicated he is concerned about the Indians’ ability to sign him once he becomes a free agent at the end of the season.
"I would like to play in Cleveland if the
money is there,” he said. "If I don’t sign by the end of spring training, then I won’t be bothered during the season.”
Elsewhere, several teams still had key players missing. Joe Rudi and Carney Lansford were absent from the Oakland A’s camp. Rudi has had an Achilles tendon problem and Lansford was house-hunting. Both were excused by Manager Steve Boros.
At the Sun City, Ariz., training site of the American League champion Milwaukee Brewers, first baseman Cecil Cooper and designated hitter Roy Howell were no-shows. Cooper had permission to be late and Howell’s son was ill.
At the Chicago Cubs’ camp, third baseman Ron Cey, after his first full workout with his new club, issued some parting salvos at his former employers, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Cey, acquired in a Jan.20 trade for two minor leaguers, said the Dodgers would suffer this season for losing veterans like himself and first baseman Steve Garvey, who signed a lucrative free-agent contract with San Diego.
“That was their fault,” Cey said. “They made it plain and clear early that they wanted to make some moves. They were moving in a new direction, changing faces, bringing in new people.
“That tells you right there that the ballclub is going to be in a state of paying the price for losing the players who have been successful and put them on top. We brought the attendance up from 2.2 (million) to 3.6 (million), and when it was our turn to get rewarded they let us out the back door. With the Dodgers, ifs time to move on when you reach a certain salary.-
