July 10, 1968

Stan Musial recently tabbed this Cardinal club to be the one to “mold the greatest dynasty in the club’s history.” Who could argue with the Man? St. Louis seems intent on a rematch with Detroit in order to exact revenge for the bitter sweep in last year’s World Series with all of the games decided

The San Francisco Giants dipped into their well-heeled minor league system shortly before the All-Star Break and came up with outfielder Bobby Bonds and infielder Bob Schroder. The Giants made room for Schroder by selling 41-year-old relief pitcher Bill Henry to the Pirates in a straight cash deal believed to be about $25,000. Bonds paid

The American League, searching for another ‘Lucky Seven’ victory, rallied from a four-run first inning deficit to overtake the National League, 5-4.

April 21, 1967

The old vaudeville gag about “Who’s on First?” has a counterpart on the Senators. Three Men on a Horse probably would be a better title for the battle among Bob Chance, Ken Harrleson and Dick Nen for the right to represent the Senators at first base. As C-Day (cutdown) approaches, all three earnest applicants for

Los Angeles – The Dodgers failed to post a victory on their first three-city trip of 1967, then returned home and looked like a different club. The Dodgers celebrated last season’s world championship before the game, and then handed the Cincinnati Reds their first defeat of the season, 4-1, before 17,947 at Dodger Stadium. The
