As told to UPI ,
LOS ANGELES (UPli-Where
the hell's the beer ,
I guess that was the first thing
I said . when I came into the
American League dressing room.
, But 1 felt pretty good anyhow
after hitting that homer. It was
a fast ball, chest-high and the
first one Don Drysdale threw to
me. : .-.
When I caught it I knew it was
a good one and gone. .
It was the first extra base hit
I've made in the 11 All - Star
games I've played in. Nellie Fox
was on base, and we went ahead,
3-1. It went over the right field
fence, but I wasn't trying to hit
it there, I was just trying to hit
the ball anywhere.
A ball's hard to see here
damn hard. The clothing and the
big blank spots in the Coliseum
made it very difficult to follow
the ball. And .(hat guy Drysdale
throws fast. ....
Sometimes there's luck in this
sort of thing. There ma have
been some luck here I don't
know for sure. -
I don't know about how I'd feel
if I had to bat against Drysdale
all the time. He throws hard
enough I know that. I d have to
get used to him.
Sometimes you hit a ball, and
you know you hit it good. Today
I knew I'd hit one, and it felt
In the tirst All Star game at
Pittsburgh, the crowd of 35,277 f
paid a gress $229,636 through the
gates with a net of $194,303.46.
"It was a good game, a well
played game," Stengel commented
in the clubhouse. "And there is
nothing wrong with this park."
To ward o'f possible criticism
of his using three Baltimore hurl
ers, Mengel explained be care
fu'ly asked each pitcher if he felt
he was ready to throw and felt
But nobody felt any better than
Berra who said he caught a chest
high fast ball for his homer in
the third with Nellie Fox of the
White Sox on base. "When I
caught it I knew it was a good
one and gone," the barrel-chested
Yankee catcher explained.
Not Too Unhappy
Tilings were a little quieter in
the National League dressing room
but manager Fred Haney of the
Braves and all the players did not
appear too unhappy about having
lost. Haney called the second All
Star game a "good production."
Johnny Temple's leadoff double
for the National League led to the
game's first run as he was sacri
ficed home Hank Aaron of the
Braves. But the lead did not last
long. Frank Malzone of the Red
Sox tied it up in the second with
th first of five homers in the
game, blasting one of Drysdale's
throws over the notorious left field
screen that started 251-feet from
When Berra homered with one
aboard in the next inning that all
but put the game in the hock shop.
Frank Robinson of Cincinnati
might have been the game's hero
had the National League won. The
Reds' first baseman led off with
a homer In the fifth off Early
Wynn, getting- two more singles
for a three-for-three record.
But the Americans increased
their lead 4-2 In the seventh when
they scored an unearned run as
three National Leaguers i.erred,
with Nellie Fox driving in Tony
Kubek to score.
That was the ball game but
Rocky Colavito of the Indians
frosted the Nationals cake with a
leadoff homer in the eighth off
Pittsburgh's Elroy Face.
Jim Gilliam of the Dodgers
scored the third National League
run with a homer in the seventh
But, In the ninth with two men on
base and two away he grounded
out to end the game.
