19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
Edited by Gay Flood

PROTECTING BOXERSSir:Thank you for a well-written, timely and important special report on boxing (Too Many Punches, Too Little Concern, April 11). The impartiality of the authors, Robert H. Boyle and Wilmer Ames, was refreshing, and the information given was clear and to the point. I have long enjoyed boxing and I don't think it should or ever will be banned, but medical questions such as the ones raised cannot be ignored. While all the evidence may not be in, enough has been found that the sport should consider more seriously how it can better protect its athletes.

?In an interview with Kubek by SI on Feb. 15, 1983 Kubek said, "During the World Series, during the Scully thing, I really didn't know what was going on. I was letting my agent, Joe Jr., find out these things." It was on this, and other statements by Kubek, that SI based its comments. Last week in a letter to SI, however, Kubek confirmed that Joe Garagiola Jr. has not actively represented him since September of 1981 and therefore had "no bearing whatsoever on NBC's decision to pair his dad and Vin Scully, and Bob Costas and me."—ED.
