...THESE FACES IN THE CROWD...

Jack Tighe, never a major league player but longtime minor leaguer, was named to succeed Bucky Harris as manager of Detroit, promised to be "fiery, aggressive" leader new owners sought to lead Tigers out of second division (see page 28).

Mary Mills, pretty 16-year-old Mississippi champion, toured first 18 holes in 73, continued to apply pressure to beat Mrs. Sam Byrd, wife of onetime Yankee outfielder 7 and 6 for Gulf Coast amateur title at Ocean Springs, Miss.

John D. Hertz, 77, Austrian immigrant who became one of the nation's leading businessmen and horse owners (Reigh Count, triple-crown winner Count Fleet), was honored by TCA at Keeneland for "contributions made to racing."

Mike Fetchick, hefty-swinging Yonkers, N.Y. pro, put together flock of birdies for 66 ("toughest round I ever played"), outstroking Jay Hebert, Doug Ford and Don January in four-way playoff for Western Open at San Francisco.
