Pacific Stars And Stripes (Newspaper) - January 8, 1967, Tokyo, JapanRed Smith Glamor Park Mike Burke like an outfielder playing in the Astrodome. We re keeping so Many balls in the air he said we can t see the vice president of Columbia broadcasting system who now Heads up the network s answer to Peyton place that popular summer replacement entitled the Yankees son of Stengel was at lunch with Lee Macphail whose meteoric baseball career took him in on Short year from the Baltimore orioles champions of the universe to 10th place inthe american league. We be been trying to do something about the fans in right Field reaching out to interfere with balls hit into the Corner Lee said. One of the most exciting plays in the game is a double or triple of the Wall the outfielder playing the carom the runner going full tilt the throw and the one in the right Field Corner in Yankee stadium a fan leans Over the Walland grabs it and there s no play. Best idea we be come up with is to take out the front Row of seats and put a Chain link Fence in front of the second Row. It would Cost us Only about 60 seats and then the second Row would be the front seats. In effect we d bayonets clobber 2d inf. Bascom Downs bulls red Smith be giving up the last Row instead of the slum clearance project the loss of 60 seats would cause no grave overcrowding in the stadium these Days. So what else is new we re trying to beautify the place Mike Burke said. Paint Edall Over for one thing and floodlight the exterior. I keep Reading that it s an obsolete Park in the wrong neighbourhood with no Park ing space. I think it s still the greatest. The Astrodome Shea Busch memorial Chavez Ravine they refine but this is the House that Ruth built. This is the shrine the Home of champions. Maybe i m oversold on the idea but think Yankee stadium has Glamor that no other Ball Park in the world it was Only three or four years ago Macphail said that visitors to new York still had three musts at the top of their sightseeing list the Empire state Tower radio City music. Halland Yankee and a few years farther Back Lee s father personally create another tourist attraction As great As any of them. In Larry Macphail s noisy Days with the dodgers it was practically illegal for a tourist to leave town without joining the Lunatic fringe at ebbets Field at least once. The new Yankees Cince Lee became general manager he has made three deals involving minor deities of the Yankees recent past. He swapped Roger Mads to St. Louis for Charlie Smith who used to play third base and shortstop for the mets. He sent cletis Boyer to atlant for the Young outfielder Bill Robinson. He bundled Pete Ramos in a pure Havana wrapper off to Philadelphia for Joe verbanic. Exactly what was your thinking in these trades he was asked. This was the time to break clean he said. If this Tea had finished third or fourth we might reason that with Good health and a Little help the players could win a Pennant next year. Rut we Aren t going to make it in a year and we d Only be wasting time staying with the older Fellows. We have to play for several years in the future when som of those Fellows will be All finished. We feel that Bill Robinson at 23, was the Best player in the minors last year. Maris May Bea better Ball player than Robinson next summer. Roger could come Back for a couple of Good years. But at his age and with his medical history he s not the fellow you can build around. If we had him we d have to play him and we might not Beable to make proper use of younger men like Robinson and Steven Whitaker. Tomorrow and tomorrow and. A gain with cletis a really Fine player but not the one who la pick up a bad team and carry it. Hell still make plays tha Charlie Smith can to but we think Charlie can play for us. He had fewest errors for a third baseman this year. Ramos same thing. Pete will be 31 in april and he s been pitching 14 years. Verbanic is 23." i Hove about Bobby Murcer Lee was asked. He s a ballplayer. We re not sure yet whether he s a Short Stop. The feeling last Spring was that he was a Fine Batter but perhaps Uncertain in the Field. Then late in the season he played the position Well he has a great Arm but his hitting was t great. I think he s smoother defensively now than Tony Kubek was in his first year at Murcer s Fielding was Beautiful for the first two thirds offspring training Mike Burke said. Then the shortstop Job was his and he played like a Man who knew it. After they started alternating him with Ruben Amaro he began to wonder whether the Job really was his.
