High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 2, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 2b High Point Enterprise saturday March 2,1974 major league baseball preview expos swinging for More in 74 Daytona Beach flu. Apr after their Best record in history the Montreal expos Are swinging for a More in �?T74.�?� they might connect if the a old timers come through As expected and the youngsters come around As hoped the most celebrated addition to the expos of course is Willie Davis a longtime National league baseball Star who will give the expansion expos their first Bona tide Center fielder in history. Davis acquisition was expensive for the expos. They had to give the los Angeles dodgers their Best Pitcher Relief Star Mike Marshall. Marshall was by far the expose most valuable player il973 and accounted largely their High finish in the Zany National league East race. The team from Canada was in the race until the last 24 hours and finished with a Terrapin Era comes to end College Park my. A p a the Mcmillen Elmore Era comes to an end saturday but coach lefty Driesell views it As merely the end of the beginning Tor Maryland basketball. A they helped us recruit other players we have Here and hopefully have gotten a winning tradition started at Maryland a Driesell said of Tom Mcmillen and Len Elmore. The two seniors plus Rich Porac and Jap Trimble take the court against Virginia saturday for their final Home game with Mcmillen As Maryland s All time scoring Leader and Elmore As the Terpsy Best rebounded Ever. Maryland achieved National ranking during the past three seasons winning 20 or More games each year and Are currently no. 5 in the nation prior to next week s Atlantic coast conference which determines the boxing meet set tonight eighteen bouts Are scheduled for tonight at City Lake gymnasium where an Amateur invitational boxing program is scheduled fighters from High Point Gastonia.

Richard Allen league s Mcaa playoff representative. A these players could have gone to Urcla North Carolina. Marquette or other schools with winning traditions a Driesell said a and it would have been easier for them physically and Quot i m not saying we re the said Elmore a 6-foot-9 Center from Springfield gardens. . A but we at least started something and ill always get satisfaction out of being a sort of a i Don t know if i go along with Tennte s Daniel Boone idea a Mcmillen cracked a but i would t go to any other school or i would t have gone to any other school a the reference by Mcmillen. A 6-11 Forward from Mansfield. Pa., was to the controversy which followed his change of mind after originally announcing his intention to attend North Carolina. Elmore said recruiters from other schools trying to steer him away from Maryland warned that he could t be a Star on the same team with Mcmillen. A but i think we be complemented each other very Well a Elmore said. A we each had a Job to do. And we went at Mcmillen. Who has been accepted As a Rhodes scholar tops Maryland s scoring list with 1,723 Points and is third in rebounding with 820. Elmore ranks no. I with 999 rebounds and is Lith in sconing with 954 Points. A the real secret Quot Mcmillen said a is that lemme convinced me at a Christmas tournament to come to Maryland and Porac was my Roommate at a postseason game during my High school year. I think that was conveniently arranged. A Driesell said Maryland is recruiting heavily for big men to replace Mcmillen and Elmore and claimed a a we re right in there for some of the Best in the country a we think four or five we have in mind could step right in and make us a contender and if we Don t get at least one we ought to kick ourselves in the rear end because we have a super Selling Point in that we have the 79-83 record for fourth place just 3�?~a games behind the winning new York Meta. Hoping to tighten up their defense Down die Middle the expos traded for the flashy Davis one of the Best Center fielders in the game. In Davis the expos also have one of the Best hitters and Best base runners in the game. Davis says he s anxious to get going obviously setting his gunfights on the fences in Montreal a cozy Jarry Park. The Fleet outfielder will add dash to a team that has an interesting blend of experience and youth. The biggest Long Ball threat in the lineup is Ken Singleton the right fielder who led the team in nine offensive departments in 1973, including Home runs 23 and Obi 103. Veteran left fielder Ron fairly third baseman Bob Bailey and second baseman Hon Hunt give the expos More solid hitting strength. Expected to see limited duty in that Outfield with Davis Singleton and fairly Are Ron Woods boots Day Jimmy Lyttle and Clyde Mashore. The expos Talent also includes people like shortstop Tim Foli and first baseman Mike Jorgensen. John Boccabella is the Catcher with Terry Humphrey waiting on deck. Also the farm system is at last producing for the relatively Young Montreal organization and some pitching help May be forthcoming from two Fine Young players Dale Murphy and John Montague. The system produced two excellent backup infielders last year Pepe Frias and Larry Lintz. Lintz As a matter of fact could take Hunts Job away this year. With Marshall gone manager Gene Mauch is hopeful that Tom Walker Chuck Taylor. Don Demola Earl Stephenson and Montague can take up the Slack. The starting pitchers include phenom Steve Rogers Mike Torrez Bill Stoneman Balor Moore Steve Renko and Ernie Mcanally. Mauch. The Only manager in Montreal s history is optimistic enough to sign up for two More years. A i would t have accepted the Extension on my contract if it Wasny to obvious to me that the future is very Bright and exciting for the expos a says Mauch. Expos at a glance in 1973 finish fourth National league East. Strengths solid hitting led by Power Man Ken Singleton and Willie Davis and improving defense. Weaknesses Mike Marshall a absence considerably weakens the bullpen plus the expos have a lot of question Marks among the starters new faces a Davis obtained from the los Angeles dodgers adds formidable clout and Outfield defense to the team. 1974 forecast third but possibly higher if the pitching comes through pro Cage standings by the associate pres Aba East division w. . .
