The Plain Dealer from Cleveland, Ohio (2024)

THE PLAIN DEALER, SATURDAY, 'APRIL 7, 1979 4, From First Sports Page of a new Mementoes Room in the recently expanded Hall of Fame in Canton. Rosenbloom has had plenty of on-the-job training to take over the operation of the Los Angeles Rams after the drowning death of his father, Car-, roll. Steve started with the ciub in Baltimore. HONORS Debbie Dugan, who won the Cleveland State trophy as the outstanding female swimmer, is the daughter' of Plain Dealer sports cartoonist Dick Dugan. It was the fourth straight year that Debbie won the Vikings' honors.

She's from Eastlake North High And on the cage front Dani Linn of Lake Ridge Aacdemy is headed for Bucknell University. in the fall. BIRTHDAY Belated best wishes to Christy Harrold, the former top: basketball and football official who turned 75 recently. His family celebrate with a clam bake. Christy, now in the laundry business, keeps the Browns and other area teams looking sharp.

Some Boston writers believe that Larry Bird will get close to a million dollars a year to sign with the Cel- 1. Notes off the cuff tics. His decision should come the pro bowlers summer tour will be on the television for the first time with CBS doing the honors. BOOK DEPARTMENT Out this month will be two tomes on the New York Yankees. One by pitcher Sparkly Lyle with Peter, Golenbock is titled The Bronx and the other by four New York sportswriters is simply The Yankees.

Lyle already has caused some controversary. with his remarks about teammates and owner George Steinbrenner. Also recommended for sports fans is Terry Pluto's Greatest Summer, a book on Jim Bouton's pitching comeback. Pluto, a former Clevelander, now is covering the grand old game for a Baltimore newspaper. JOGGERS' TIP Jesse Bell's mile-and-a-half cinder layout took, a beating from winter storms and year around joggers.

Rehabilitation has begun, however, and the scenic track should be back in top shape long before the roses bloom. With opening assignments on the road against the New York Jets and Kansas City, the Browns would seem to have at least a 50-50 chance of reaching their home opener on Sept. 16 against Baltimore undefeated. Dallas and Miami are new highlights of the home season. 'SCARCE COMMODITY It's nothing new that the Browns are on the prowl for defensive linemen.

A check of the roster for the all-' time Browns team, which will be picked by the fans in the fall, indicates that the club has not been blessed in this area over the years. End Len Ford is in the Hall of Fame posthumously, and Jerry Sherk was close to greatness at tackle before knee surgery. From those two there is a dropoff and the team's followers could have tough time deciding on the other end and tackle. Players will be picked at 25 positions and those selected will be invited to Cleveland for a luncheon and game during the coming season. YOUTH MOVEMENT Kicker Jim Bakken, 38 and a veteran of 17 years with the St.

Louis Cardinals, has been told that he won't be invited to training camp this summer. He's the NFL's second leading all-time scorer with 1,380 The 1980 Pro Bowl game will be played Jan. 27 in Honolulu. THE MASTERS With the Masters a week late this spring some of the flowers may have bloomed and wilted, but that isn't the only change at Augusta. It's just possible that Jack Nicklaus won't tee off as favorite next week.

Golf Digest has made Tom Watson the the pick at 6-1 with Nicklaus the second choice at 7-1. Jack has won this tourney a record five times, but some insiders believe that his game has slacked off at least a shade. And how can a guy like Nicklaus still be hungry? FAUX PAUS Kansas City coach Mary Levy still is red-faced about an incident at a meeting of the AFC West coaches a short time ago. Explaining that one of his his draft priorities would be a speedy, game-breaking type of wide receiver, the coach was asked by a reporter, pointing to a nearby "What about him?" Levy replied, "Who's he?" only to discover that it was the Steelers' Lynn Swann working in the off season at a TV station. And the Chiefs play the Steelers next season.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game is the theme song of this weekend with the Indians against the Red Sox in the Stadium opener today and again tomorrow on the lakefront. Enjoy it.

Cauthen needs 56 more victories to chalk up 1,000 winners in a career marred only by a 110-race losing streak in California last winter, which he snapped before crossing the The 5-foot-2, 112-pound Cauthen, youngest to ride a winner of the Triple Crown, is riding in Britain for millionaire owner Robert Sangster and trainer Barry Hills. Sangster has guaranteed him earnings of $200,000 but he could triple that if he learns to master the ups, downs and twists of English courses.

With former British jockey Jimmy Lindley as his guide, Cauthen has spent much of the week on horseback, getting a crash course on the unpredictability of English riding conditions. The going is usually soft in England's wet climate, the terrain undulating and "straight" courses sometimes require jockeys to negotiate tricky doglegs to the right or left. "Steve is a highly intelligent young man and I don't anticipate him having any difficulty coping with this track," said Washy Hibbert, clerk of the Salisbury course. Cauthen rides first on Marquee Universal, a three-year-old colt and 11-to-4 favorite. Then he switches to a three-year-old filly, Ring Lady, for the 1,000 Guineas Trial Stakes.

His third ride is in the 2,000 Guineas Trial Stakes aboard National Stakes winner Tap On Wood, another three-year-old colt. Britain's legal bookmakers offered 5-to-4 odds against Cauthen winning any of the races.

S.W. (RI. 3) I-77 Fulton Rd. and motors not available Kellogg becoming a Classic question By Hymie, Williams Plain Dealer burcou CANTON There are two practical certainties for tonight's North-South Cage Classic at Memorial Fieldhouse: There will be two basketball games; and there will be a sellout crowd of 5,000. The game department has Ohio's North and South Class A-AA high school all-stars meeting at 7 p.m., a and the AAA North and South at 9.

The AAA Yankees team will be commanded by Coach Bob Straub of Cleveland St. Joseph and the Rebels court chief will be Tom Cuppett of Chillicothe. There are two coaches apiece for the A-AA teams, Don Gacey of Cleveland Latin and Frank Guilbault of St. Henry for the North and Dick Hopkins of Portsmouth and Bill Elsass of Botkins for the South. Some of the luster from the AAA game may be dimmed by the possible absence of the St.

Joseph superstar, 6-foot-8 Clark Kellogg, the Ohio AAA Player of the Year. Kellogg competed last night in the All-American tournament in Akron with Val-Pak, and it advanced to today's semifinals. He planned to play for ValPak final if this his team afternoon gets to and it, and again thus tonight in the pass up Cage Classic here. If Val-Pak loses this afternoon, though, Kellogg plans to make the Canton tourney. Coach Straub has another worry: guard John Davis of Steubenville.

"I've heard nothing from him yet but I hope he shows up for the game," Straub said worriedly. SPORTS FANS! I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW Brought To You by Mike Di Marco Oddly enough, a big league baseball player once actually caught his own home run! How's this possible? It hoppened to Dixie Walker one day in 1946 ot Ebbetts Field, Brooklyn Dixie hit a home run into the screen above the right-field fence The ball stuck there for a homer At the end of the inning, Walker went out to play his position in right field, and as he neared the fence the ball suddenly started to drop out of the screen Walker ran over, made the catch, and became the only man in history who ever caught his own home run! Believe it or not, a complete 1 9-inning big league baseball game was once played in 51 minutes! It was a game between the Giants and Phils in 1919. Has any rookie ever been able to win the batting championship in big league baseball? It's happened only ONCE in history The only rookie I to lead a major league in batting at the end of any season was Tony Oliva, who won the American league batting title in 1964.
