" Is the Pacific Coast league be-
coming a haven for hitters with
a ''rabbit" look who oye fences
Instead, of batting averages?
Twenty-one home runs were hit
m eight PCL games Sunday. On
Saturday nine fourbaggers were
swatted In six games.
This is what happened yester
day:;; i-Pinchhitter Roeelio Alvarei.

homer to give San Diego a 7-3
win over Portland after the Bea
vers had taken the opener 11-8.

hit for the circuit In tho second
game. In the opener, rookie Padre
outfielder Art Shamsky rocketed
a. 450-foot shot out of the ballpark

day game but the Rainiers cap
tured the night game 6-2 behind
rookie John Boyle's four-hit pitch

belted the other four baggers.
Oddly enough, the only game in
which no homers were hit was
Tacoma's 4-3 victory over Spokane
In 15 Innings. Ricardo Joseph
lashed a two-run single in tlie tup
of the 15th to drive in the win

NEW YORK (UP) Baseball
men regard the no-hitter as they
would a Mona Lisa painted on
Swiss cheese, so you can't blame
Sandy Koufax today for keeping
his fingers tightly crossed.
The no-hitter, such as the one
he threw Saturday night against
the San Francisco Giants, is a
masterpiece. But too often the
man who hurls it falls rapidly on
hard times and of such things
are baseball superstition built.
Koufax, the darkly handsome
young southpaw of the Los An
geles Dodgers, had a previous
Just last June 30 he pitched his
first no-hitter and even the fact
that it was against the New York
Mets removed none of the ac
claim accorded to such a per
formance. Struck On Finger
In bis next start he was struck
on the index finger of his pitch
ing hand and within a month he
was out of action for the balance
of the season.
It could have ended his career.
The blow caused a circulatory
failure, a blood Clot developed
and for a time it was feared that
the finger might have to be amputated.
"It's been a long winter," Kou
fax admitted when he reported
for spring training this season.
"The doctors tell me that the fin
ger will be all right and my hand
and arm feel fine. But you never
know until you give it a stiff

yet an easy humor bubbles un

Losing him undoubtedly had
cost the Dodgers the National

spring they watched Koufax with
all the attention of a hawk hover

DALLAS, Tex. (UPI) The
have-not Oakland Raiders and
New York Jets of tho American
Football League are due to get
some help from the league's six
Milt Woodard, assistant league
commissioners, said here Sunday
that representatives of the other
six teams formed the plan at a
New York meeting.
The plan, which goes into ef
fect June 10, calls for each of tho
other six AFL teams to "freeze"
25 of their regular players. The
Jets and tho Raiders can then
choose one player from the re
maining regulars on each team.
The clubs will then "freeze" 50
per cent of their rookie crop and
the Jets alone will be allowed one
pick from the rest of the rookies.
This same arrangement will be
used on tlie free agents signed by
most teams. These mostly include
rookies who were not drafted, but
were signed Independently.
Tho Jots were unable to sign up
any of their 1963 rookies because
of financial problems and a re
cent shift in ownership. Tlie Raid
ers have never quite recovered
from the fact lliat they were
taken into tlie league a little later
than the other original AFL mem
bers three years ago.
Oakland last year finished with
a 1-13 mark.
