Briggs Miles former general manager of the Winston Salem baseball club met with the Thomasville recreation commission monday to discuss relocating Here the team that was in Burlington last summer. The Burlington team was affiliated with the Washington senators who have since moved to the Dallas fort Worth area to become the Texas rangers. A baseball franchise Hasni to operated at Finch Field since 1969 when the i Toms were affiliated with the Kansas City royals. The City of Thomasville owns Finch Field and the recreation commission and Miles failed to reach an agreement monday.

Their opponents the Carolina cougars merely blew up. The result was a 135-115 Utah Victory which kept the cougars firmly rooted in the Aba Eastern division cellar. The cougars jumped off to a 9-2 Lead but that was the High Guilford solidifies cd spot by the associated press Ciu Ilford has solidified its place in the first division of the Carolinas conference basketball race by scoring 18 straight Points to whip Pfeiffer 92-76.

Virginia Scharlie Scott paced All scorers though hitting for 37 Points. It seems that the major problem at the present time is that nobody knows just How much Money it will take to restore the Ball Park into playing conditions that will meet Carolina league standards. The City of Thomasville made it Clear to Briggs that it in t going to spend any Money on the Park and that if it rents the Park it Isnit going to lose any Money on the Deal. But on the other hand the City Wasny table to put a lease Price on the Park. Meanwhile Briggs did t give the City an exact figure he would rent for. The results of mondays meeting is this Briggs has gone Back to Winston Salem to draw up a proposal which he will present to the recreation commission when the next meeting is held. Meanwhile Clint Ingram recreation director in the chair City is doing research to determine How much Money it will take to restore and operate the Ball Park this summer. Briggs said this morning that he came prepared to offer $4,000 rent monday but that the commission did no to know if that would be enough. The Hall club reportedly pays Winston Salem $6,000 annually in rent but on the other hand the club in Lynchburg va., reportedly pays the City there Only $3,000 in rent. A i plan to get in touch with Carolina league president Wallace Mckenna today a said Briggs a and see what he thinks. We May talk to the Texas rangers and see what the a think a anyway i will have a proposal when i meet with the recreation commission i n Thomasville again and after the meeting we will know something for sure then a added Miles. A after we get the proposal from Miles then we will decide what we Are willing to pointed out Ingram. So. There hangs baseball eve Quot Finch Field today. It could drop on either Side of the line.

While reports will show state losing the hair Raiser when a last second shot by Rick Holdt from the Corner bounced off the rim it May have been a first half Gamble by Sloan that actually turned the game in favor of Maryland and preserved whatever chances the terrapins had of remaining in Contention for the acc regular season championship. Maryland is now 3-3 in the league to 2-3 for the Wolf pack. The loss was states first in the last five games. States Gamble came with 7-4 Sophomore Tommy Burleson. Burleson was to be the equalizer against Maryland a 6-11 Tom Mcmillen and 6-9 Len Elmore and it started out that Way. The Wolf pack incited by the partisan crowd picked up against the terms where Carolina had left off on saturday by running up a 15-Point Lead before the first to minutes was completed. At that Point it certainly did t look like much of a confrontation. State was doing everything a step ahead of the terrapins. Then Burleson picked up his second personal foul. He stayed in for a few More moments. But went to the Bench with 9 16 left and state in front 29-17. In the remainder of the half Maryland outscored the Wolf pack 21-12 and trailed by three at the half. Paul Coder. Burleson a 69 replacement took the Post but could not fight off Mcmillen and Elmore.

For example failure to properly position the Ball within your stance can cause miss hit crooked shots. It sounds like a minor thing but bad Ball positioning creeps up on you like a double bogey. Of you play the Ball too far Forward you probably will hit a High slicing shot. Or you May top the Ball of you play the Ball too far Back you will hit the shot too Low. And you May either slice or Hook. Depending on the positioning of the club face at Impact.

A a we also wanted to protect Tom from getting that third foul before the it was ironic that Burleson never did draw his fifth personal while both Mcmillen and Elmore did foul out. Elmore was the Force to be reckoned with As he got 12 of Maryland a 21 rebounds in the first half. Burleson had six before he sat Down. Once Maryland caught up it tried to strangle state with a freeze. In a five minute period state did not score and Maryland built up what appeared to be an insurmountable 64-58 Lead with just 1 04 left. That set the stage for the hectic Windup. Bob Heuts hit the first of a one and one with 37 seconds to go to make it 64-59 he missed the second on purpose to give Burleson a Chance to rebound which he did and dropped in a Basket for 64-61 As the clock ticked to 26. Maryland a Bob boded hit two pressure tosses at .24 and again it looked As if it was Over. Steve Nuce kept the cover off the pot by connecting from the Corner at 15 while at the same time Mcmillen was drawing his fifth foul waiting for the anticipated rebound Burleson made both of his chances and it was 66-65. Steve smoral had to foul Jim of Brien to Stop the clock. Of Brien must have Felt his ears ringing from the crowd noise and he missed the tap going to state s Joe Cafferky who called timeout in the backcourt. State got the Ball to mid court with six seconds to go and one last play. Holdt was the Only Man open for Cafferky a pass and that was that. A no you done to have a particular play with six seconds left a a Sloan said. A if we could we would have liked to have gotten it to Burleson but that would have required two Quick passes. So we just gave it to Joe to do what he could. He found the Man in the Corner. You Hope for the bests Sloan said he told his players that they could t dwell on this loss. A we had our Chance but the shot did no to go a he said. A this was a big disappointment but it s not the end of the world we have to get ready for some games that will be tougher than Maryland s lefty Driesell who draws paying customers wherever he goes nowadays explained his thoughts in those last seconds. A i Don t know Why Mcmillen fouled a he said. A i thought we had it locked up and i told them not to foul. But i think it s the a k of a Good club when it can win like this. We got in a Hole in the first half by taking bad neither Side did much shooting in the second half. Both Tom Burleson held the key teams hit less than 40 per cent from the Field and made Only 17 Field goals Between them. Mcmillen got 22 Points to Lead both teams but was fairly Well contained by state s Man to Man defense which at times looked More like a three Man zone with two chasing the Maryland guards. In the other acc game last night Barry Parkton of Virginia was held to his lowest total of the season to Points but his rebounding and shooting preserved a 62-58 Victory for the Cavaliers at Clemson s Littlejohn coliseum. Clemson trailing by two missed a shot and the rebound with 23 seconds left. Parkhill rebounded and Clemson fouled him. With four seconds left he made the two free throws for the final score. Virginia is 5-1 in the acc and 14-1 for the season. Clemson is 1-4 in the league and 9-6 Tor the year. Maryland Aai g r n c.
