A roundup of the sports information of the week

BASEBALL—The minor league meetings in Rochester triggered a major league swap shop as everybody else's players seemed to look good. Most notably: Boston's AL batting titleist Pete Runnels to Houston for Roman Mejias, as Boston sought right-handed power; Stan Williams of the Dodgers to the pitching-hungry Yankees for First Baseman Moose Skowron; and three-fourths of the Pirate infield—Dick Groat (to St. Louis). Don Hoak (to Philadelphia) and Dick Stuart (to Boston)—for Pitcher Don Schwall and assorted other young talent. More faded names also moved: Joe Adcock (Milwaukee to Cleveland), Gus Triandos (Baltimore to Detroit). Bubba Phillips (Cleveland to Detroit) and Norm Larker (Houston to Milwaukee).
