Photo by Chi Petrey Philadelphia a it seems Only appropriate that after 13 months of haggling peace should come to baseball in the City of brotherly love. But like any truce the agreement reached monday Between the major league players association and the player relations committee had its Price. Both sides gave ground to reach the settlement. Although neither management nor the Union would reveal any terms of the pact these key elements of the fou year agreement were Learned a a player will have the right to demand a Trade after having played in the majors for five years. He will have a veto right Over six clubs. If he is not traded he will become a free agent. A players who become free agents including those now governed by the Andy Messersmith decision will be Able to negotiate with a maximum of 12 teams starting with the inverse order of the previous season standings. Each club will be limited in the number of free agents it can sign being permitted one if the free agent Pool totals one to 14. However a club will be Able to sign As Many free agents As it might lose. A the Only compensation for a lost player will be draft choices if one of the 12 lowest teams signs a player it would lose its second Choice in the next draft of College and High school players to the players Scott not Ama s Champion Mold Springfield Ohio Gary Scott does t fit the Mold that one usually shapes for an american motorcycle association Champion. He never dreamed of winning the Camel pro series title As he did last year. He did no to idolize a Joe Leonard or a Bart Martel when he was a youngster he never even thought about racing professionally when he began Riding not Long after he entered Grade school. He even believes a Privateer a a rider without the backing of a factory like Harley Davidson or Yamaha a can win the championship and he plans to prove his Point this season. To show How really unique Scott is. He decided to quit the Harley Davidson team after winning the title last year it was a Lack of communication or something with Harley Davidson a a said Scott in explaining his surprising and agonizing decision a we just could t get together for a couple of weeks it just about drove me nuts a i guess you can say in a More determined to repeat. I m doing what i believe. Nothing is that important that you go against what you believe i will make less Money but i will feel better a the reason that Scott views his profession with a different Outlook May be because when he and brother Hank climbed aboard their first cycles and Rode across the Field behind their Baldwin Park. Calif., Home. Gary looked on Riding a was just a family a i just used it As an adventure. I was different than the usual Driver when i got the National motorcycle magazines. I did t follow pirates get Powers Pittsburgh apr the Pittsburgh pirates have signed Pitcher Steve Powers the most valuable player in the College world series earlier this summer he is due to report wednesday to the pirates Salem farm club in the class a Carolina league. Foreman ticketed Houston a former heavyweight boxing Champion George Foreman has been ticketed for negligent collision after his car was involved in a collision with a police car neither Foreman nor the officer was injured in the monday incident Gary Scott number one planning to keep ranking the National meets. I looked Tor the scrambles trophy races. I didst know the names of the top stars until i got Scott had been Riding in organized scramble races since he was 13 and that s As far As his interest in the sport went even when he moved up the ladder and was awarded an a a expert ranking meaning he could compete in National meets and Chase after the Ama championship Scott did t consider the possibility of tackling the series on a regular basis. A it was just a fun thing to do an adventure a said the 24-year-old who moved to Ohio a year and a half ago because it s Quot More centrally located a but As his first year neared completion the thought that a i could do this for a living suddenly hit with some Force. He had won two National events a a tourist trophy event a race run on tracks normally one half to three quarters of a mile with the presence of both right and left hand turns and a Juirl at Castle Rock was hand a dirt track event at Ascot Park in Gardena Calif. By the end of the year i had made some Money and everything had worked out Well a said Scott who finished second in the Point race in his Rookie Campaign since then the series has developed into a personal Duel Between Scott and Kenny Roberts who won the championship in 1973 and �?T74 with Scott Only a few Points behind in the no. 2 spot each time. Last year Scott reversed the standings. Scott admits a there is a rivalry there for supremacy w e have fought each other for quite a while and still if he s Able to accomplish his goal of winning the title As a Privateer he will have battled Roberts to a standoff in championships during their five year it nomination of the circuit and that will be quite an achievement for a teenager who thought collecting trophies was the Only thing he wanted out of cycling former team. If one of the top 12 teams signs a player it would forfeit its no. I draft Choice. A players can take their salary differences to arbitration As they did before the 1974 season. However if a player is eligible to become a free agent his salary dispute can go to arbitration Only by Mutual consent of the player and the club. The players also had to agree to stay five years with their new teams once they exercised their free agent option. The new contract also called for a 29 per cent increase in pension plan contributions by management. But the pact did not solve baseball so one and one dilemma created when pitchers Andy Messersmith and Dave Mcnally won free agent status last Winter in score mix up in links Golf Coon rapids Minn.

Der an arbitrators decision after completing the 1975 season without signing contracts. The 40 or so unsigned major league players still Are considered to be a playing out their options a and unless they sign by october they will be free agents when the season ends. Other players who signed single or multiyear contacts May still exercise their options at the conclusion of those pacts should they choose to move elsewhere. The difference now however is that with an agreement management has something of a deadline hanging Over the players. Once they exercise or pass up that single option Chance the players will be tied to their teams for various lengths of time. But of course that six year Point could be reached quickly for individual players depending on when they came to the majors. So baseball still faces a situation which could find Many players moving around freely every year. That element and the continued 1-1 Factor apparently has left some owners less than thrilled with the agreement which has the unanimous support of the player relations committee and commissioner Bowie Kuhn. The owners will meet wednesday morning to consider the pact. The committee will recommend approval and the commissioner said he would support that recommendation. A this is a constructive development for baseball a Kuhn said. Approval of the pact would require 13 affirmative votes a simple majority from the 24 owners.
