Up Mac Orlov the. N a my a a i j?68, which was one of those my cd a a Best pitch in 1967 and a Vurdak win mints and of Mccormick the Yyoung sometimes you have it and Kos a a a a saturday with Points and in award Winner figures he does no to have to prove himself All Over again but the facts of life says he does. And so the 30-year-old Lethander who has known the ups and Downs of a big league pitchers life is working harder than the wildest eyed Rookie in the san Francisco giants Spring a amp a trying to win myself a a pot in the starting almost As an afterthought he became a starter of the giants in 1967, and before the season was Over Mike had won 22 of 32 decisions while working Over a Span of 262 innings. He posted a fi.85 earned run average to go along with his Fine won lost record and that won him the by Young award As the National leagues top Pitcher. A that was All a part of the past a said Mike the other Day after a 20-minute stint on the Mound pitching batting practice. A a look what happened to me last year although there were times i pitched As Well As i did in 1967 a Mccormick slipped to 12-14 in Louisville by. Up a the reign of King Ferdinand Lewis Alcindor is Over but the dynasty he leaves behind wont crumble in his absence. The towering 7-foot-l 1-2 Inch Alcindor closed out his Colle Ridge Grade school wrestling champs sometimes you done to years. When Mike had his stuff he was As Good As he Ever was. When he did no to some awful things happened. The trouble was though that there were games in which he was very Good and still did t wind up with a Victory. Like his very first Start when he allowed Only one hit in 13 innings left for a Pinch hitter and never got the decision. It sort of set the stage for the rest of the year. By mid july he was 6-11 and Herman Franks manager at the time dropped Mccormick from the rotation. In August Mike picked up two victories in spot starting roles and one in Relief and that sort of buoyed him a i did it without my screwball too a recalled Mccormick. A i had trouble with the pitch almost All year and once they put me in the bullpen i did no to have opportunities to Experiment with it so i forgot the screwball was Mccoy our Best High performance Shock absorbers Guaran Tood for As Long As Yon own your ear Wert 13.7.

A a in be got it Back to where i can control it a said Mccormick. A of course we still have a ways to go before the season starts so i have that much More time to work on Mccormick As All pitchers do says he needs steady work to be effective and he Hopes he gets it from new manager Clyde King. A Ord like to be a starter again a said Mccormick a but if they want me in Effie bullpen 111 go. The Only thing i ask is that they use me regularly in either that a a Promise King will make him once he has the pitching staff lined up the Way he wants it. Trouble is King has six starters now and plans to go with four in rotation when the season begins. The manager lists Juan Marichal Gaylord Perry and Ray Sadecki now As sure starters. That leaves Mccormick Bobby Bolin and Rookie Rich Robertson battling for the fourth spot. The two losers will become Long relievers. King while trying to be impartial says head like two right handers and two left handers in the rotation which Means in a Way he is rooting for Mccormick since Marichal Perry Bolin and Robertson Are right handers and Sadecki and Mccormick Are left handers a a that a the Ideal situation a says King. A what manager want it that Way but sometimes you can to have it the Way you a like. Well just have to wait and see what meanwhile Mccormick plods along working on his screwball and hoping lightening will strike for him a second time. Jones Johnson head or. College basketball stars automotive Center Railroad St. Radford a 623-9031 rebounds that powered Urcla to a 92-72 rout of Purdue and an unprecedented third consecutive Mcaa title. But while the giant Center will never Rule College basketball again the Bruins still appear to have enough Talent coming Back next season to make a respectable run for another title. The Bruins who have won five Mcaa titles in the past six seasons won two crowns before Alcindor got there so there a no underestimating the Powers of coach John wooden. A there Are going to be a lot of Good teams in the Pacific eight conference next year and we re going to be one of them a wooden said saturday following the Bruins Victory. The Bruins will return guard John Vallely and Curtis Rowe from this years Starling team plus three others who contributed a lot to the Bruins 29-1 record Center Steve Patterson Forward Sidney Wicks and guard Terry Schofield.

A the whole team was up. It was very easy for us to get up for this game. Plus we were picked to lose a Alcindor said referring to one Louisville columnist who had picked Purdue to win by seven Points. Quot we realized we play the Way we did against Drake and beat Purdue a Alcindor said. A they shot better and were just As Quick.
