The fickle fans of Boston have a new hero this season at Fenway Park. The fans can’t cheer for Tony Conigliaro because he isn’t playing. Jim Lonborg has won only a few games, and Carl Yastrzemski still has his fans. But, Ken Harrelson has taken over the affection of the 1,800,000 who will have watched the Red Sox play in Fenway this season. The colorful Harrelson wears the latest in mod fashion such as Nehru jackets in bright colors. But, as long as he hits, no one criticizes his clothes. Harrelson is hitting .262 and leads the team with 23 home runs and leads the league with 85 RBI. TSN 8/31 p.16
