THIS DAY IN SPORTS
NEW YORK – Emile Griffith of New York regained the world welterweight boxing championship from Benny (Kid) Paret tonight at Madison Square Garden. Paret was knocked unconscious and underwent brain surgery at Roosevelt Hospital. Griffith stopped Paret after 2 minutes 9 seconds of the twelfth round. Paret was out on his feet. When he failed to regain consciousness in the ring, he was taken to his dressing room on a stretcher and later removed to the hospital by ambulance.At the hospital, Dr. Harry Kleiman reported that the 25-year-old Paret was in serious condition. Dr. Lawrence Schick, a neurosurgeon, then performed surgery to relieve pressure on the brain. Another doctor at the hospital said Paret’s chances to recover were “poor.” In a waiting room downstairs from the operating room, about fifteen fans and friends quietly awaited word of Paret’s condition. This group included Garden officials. Griffith was among those in the waiting room and said: “I’m sorry it happened. I hope everything is being done for him.” Griffith left before the operation began. Before Paret left the Garden, the last rites of the Roman Catholic Church were administered.
Although Griffith had been down for an 8- count in the sixth, his triumph was anything but surprising. He had been in command most of the way, and there had been times when the punishment he inflicted on Paret seemed much more than any normal human could withstand. What finally ended the stubborn Cuban’s reign was a two-handed flurry that started with ten consecutive right uppercuts to the chin. The 23-year-old Griffith punched faster than most observers could count. All told, his winning assault consisted of twenty-five blows. Long before Griffith had completed this cyclonic sortie, many in the crowd of 7,600 were begging Referee Ruby Goldstein to intervene. Goldstein was not moved to pity until one fact became obvious: The only reason Paret still was on his feet was that Griffith’s pile-driving fists were keeping him there, pinned against the post in a neutral corner. Paret’s eyes were closed. His hands dropped at his sides. His head snapped to the left and to the right as Griffith pounded away. The fact that Paret would not fall seemed to arouse the New Yorker to new heights of fury.
Perhaps he was remembering the split decision he lost to Paret here last Sept. 30. That was the bout in which Paret regained the crown he had lost to Emile on April 1, 1960, at Miami Beach. That fight ended in a thirteenth-round knockout. Whatever it was that Griffith was thinking about tonight, it certainly was translated into something akin to savagery. After the ten rights to the face had failed to do the job, he began alternating the rights with left hooks. All these blows were thrown from behind Emile’s back, it seemed. Paret sagged but still would not go down. Goldstein finally made his move but had difficulty restraining Griffith. When the referee finally pulled the attacker away, Paret slid slowly down the ropes and to the canvas. He lay on his back unconscious for about eight minutes while physicians worked on him. He still was unconscious when carted to his dressing room. In a sense, it was something of a miracle that Paret had reached the twelfth round. Had he not possessed more courage than skill, he would have been knocked out in the tenth. Griffith punched faster and harder than his opponent. Paret frequently made the mistake of allowing his foe to bore in under slow-motion jabs and pump both hands hard to the body. And at close quarters, Griffith invariably was the man who managed to work a hand free to throw a stiff uppercut.
Griffith weighed 144 pounds and Paret 146 1/4 for the scheduled fifteen-round bout. Paret was guaranteed $50,000, and Griffith’s purse was about $17,000. Griffith was a heavy favorite. The knockout was the fourth of Paret’s professional career. His record now shows thirty-four victories, twelve losses and three draws. Griffith has won twenty-five bouts and has lost three. Kid Paret remained in a coma until his death in a New York City hospital on April 3. Emile Griffith fought until 1977.

1933 Babe Ruth, who made $75,000 dollars last season, takes a $23,000 pay cut, a decrease which is indicative of the depression era. The 38 year-old Yankee slugger remains productive, batting .301, hitting 34 home runs, and driving in 103 runs for the second-place club that finishes seven games behind the Senators.
1936 Paul Dean, after posting a 19-11 record in his sophomore year, agrees to a $10,000 deal to pitch for the Cardinals. The 23 year-old right-hander, who has compiled 38 victories in his first two seasons, will have his career shorten by arm troubles, retiring after nine-year tenure in the major leagues with a 50-34 mark.
1946 In Birmingham, Alabama, police pull Edward Klep from the lineup of the Buckeyes, a visiting Negro American League team. The first white player in organized black baseball is told to change into his civilian clothes and sit away from his teammates in the “whites only” section of Rickwood Field.
1947 During a four-hour hearing with Commissioner Chandler at the Sarasota Terrace Hotel, Leo Durocher admits to playing occasional card games for money with Kirby Higbe.
1952 During spring training at St. Petersburg, Cardinals pitcher Bob Slaybaugh is hit in the face with a line drive during batting practice that will subsequently result in the loss of his left eye. The 21 year-old southpaw will attempt a comeback in 1953 and again in 1954 before he retires from professional baseball.
1959 Prior to an exhibition game played against the Dodgers in Havana, Cuba, a photo of Pete Whisenant is taken that shows the Reds outfielder toting a machine gun. The weapon for the posed photo is supplied by a rebel from Fidel Castro’s revolutionary army.
1961 The NY State Senate approves $55 million in funding to build a new stadium in Flushing Meadows Park for the new National League’s expansion team. Until the Queens’ ballpark is completed, which will become known as Shea Stadium, the Mets will play in the Polo Grounds during the first two years of their existence.
1982 The Dodgers automatically renew Fernando Valenzuela’s contract when he ends his three week holdout, but the Mexican southpaw refuses to sign it.

2001 During an exhibition game against the Giants, Diamondback hurler Randy Johnson’s fastball hits and instantly kills a dove flying in front of home plate. The bird appears to explode as the National League Cy Young winner’s pitch sends it over catcher Rod Barajas’ head.
2006 At Mickey Mantle’s restaurant in New York City, the U.S. Postal Service unveils the “Baseball Sluggers” postage stamps which will be issued on July 15 at Yankee Stadium prior to the game against the White Sox. The four Hall of Famers featured in the set all have roots in New York with Mickey Mantle (Yankees), Mel Ott (Giants), and Roy Campanella (Dodgers) playing their entire careers in the Big Apple, and the fourth, Hank Greenberg, setting schoolboy records at James Monroe High School in the Bronx.
2008 The Twins agree to a new deal with their All-Star closer, signing Joe Nathan (1.88, 37 saves) to a $47 million, four-year contract, which includes a 2012 club option. The 33 year-old right-hander’s 160 saves over the past four seasons is tied with Mariano Rivera of the Yankees for most in the American League.
2008 On the South Lawn of the White House, the Washington Nationals Presidential character mascots take part in the traditional White House Easter Egg Roll. It is reported Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington all were very comfortable in their surroundings.
