High Point Enterprise, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1976, High Point, North CarolinaHigh Point Enterprise tuesday october 19, 1976 so Ellis vows to pitch reds tight Yankee Pitcher Dock Ellis listens Catfish Hunter left gives some advice a were photo new York a Yankee manager Billy Martin hands Pitcher Dock Ellis the Ball tonight. Ellis says he won t intentionally throw it at the reds this time. I have no reason to throw at them says Ellis a refugee from the National league s Pittsburgh pirates. I m Gonna pitch them tight. If one takes off it s not my fault. There won t be anything intentional. That was 1974 on May 1, 1974, in one of the most bizarre baseball incidents in recent years Ellis said he was going to throw at the Cincinnati batters then went out and hit the reds first three hitters Pete Rose Joe Morgan and Dan Driessen. He then got a Little wild missing Tony Perez who walked to Force in one run. He was taken out of the game after throwing two wild pitches to Johnny Bench the no. 5 Batter. Kubek compares yank clubs new York a the new York Yankees Are no Little league team. After All they re the american league Cham pions. Yet former Yankee Tony Kubek thinks Only one player from new York s 1976 club could have started for the Yankees in 1961. Kubek says that of the present Yankee regulars Only cat fish Hunter would definitely fit into the pinstripes of the Yankee powerhouse which crushed the Cincinnati reds in the world series 15 years ago. Kubek a cog on six Yankee Pennant winning teams in the late 50s and Early 60s, considers himself a somewhat biased historian but he was willing to compare the two clubs that Are separated by much More than 15 years and new double knit knickers. It s really hard to make says Kubek part of Abc s baseball broadcasting team. The game s changed so much with expansion Relief pitching artificial turf and the designated hitter. But the Only Guy i feel certainly would make the 1961 Yankees would be Catfish five time 20-game Winner would then fit nicely into Yankee manager Ralph Houk s rotation which included Whitey Ford Bob Turley and Ralph Terry. The 1961 Yankees brought tape measures wherever they went. They hit a major league record 240 homers that year with Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle combining for 115. They won 109 games second most Ever by a Yankee team winning their second of five straight pennants. The Streak ended in 1964, the last time the Yankees won the Al Pennant until this year s team headed by Hunter and hitters Thurman Munson Mickey Rivers and Chris Chambliss. I wanted to kick their Butts. I tried to Start a fight. That s All it says Ellis who will face the same five batters plus four others tonight in game 3 of the world series. The Yankees Trail 2-0 and Are looking for their 100th Victory in the an Nual october classic. Ellis provided several in sights into the thinking that provoked his hit Parade against the reds two years ago. There was a lot of background to he said. Part of it deals with hitting our hitters part of it deals with intimidation. They the reds come Over to us and talk to us real Friendly then after they beat us they talk about How dumb we in t it dumb to provoke a fight intentionally giving up runs in the process i did what i had to he said monday while the Yankees worked out at Yankee stadium. I was sacrificing one regular season game Jou can t sacrifice a game during the world especially when you Are Down 2-0 to the defending champions who Are gaining support As one of the greatest teams in baseball history. It s just another game that s All it says Ellis. Sure we have a Chance to win it we re supposed to win it. We re in our own it will also help Ellis a sinker Ball Pitcher to be away from Cincinnati s artificial turf the hard surface which acts like a launching pad for ground balls. I live and die with ground said Ellis the Yankees most successful reclamation project. Over nine innings i average about 15-20 ground balls. A lot of ground Ball hits in the no Are outs Over Kannapolis from Page 3b Ellis was 17-8 this season after slipping to 8-9 with Pittsburgh in 1975. Out of the league saying they have already arranged to enter another conference with schools in their own area. Kannapolis because of its 4a size could stay in the pc but would to forfeit any Post season playoffs.
