Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12-THE LITHBAIDQI This could be the year of the Red Sox Wil1 Aaron Play By NEIL CAMPBELL The Canadian Prets If there is any truth to the uld saying about pitching being 90 er cent of baseball, Boston Ked Sox should be the most improved team in the major leagues this summer. A'fter watching a good- hitting Boston team finish a distant second in the American League East pennant race in Iffrl because of mediocre pitching, general manager Dick O'Connetl went Specialists in all typos of ENGINE REBUILDING CYLINDER BORING AND RESLEEVING CRANKSHAFT REGRINDING Ask about our Guarantee ENGINES WISCONSIN ENGINE Sales and Service Centre Custom Engine Parts Ltd. 1605 3rd Avenue South Phone 328-8181 shopping in the off-season. When he was finished, out- fieW star Reggie Smith was gone and Rick Wise, Reggie Cleveland, a native of Swift Current, Sask., Juan Marichal and Dick Drago had been added to a starting staff that retained Luis Tiant, a 22-game winner, and Bill Lee from last year. To share up an infield trou- bled by age and injuries. O'Connell added Dick McAuliffe from Detroit Tigers. The Red Sox handed the shortstop job to rookie Mario Guerrero in spring training, letting veteran Luis Aparicio go. Some of the punch is gone from the Red Sox attack, but they are gambling that their pitching will enable them to INSURANCE LIABILITY BONOS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD Established 1911 LotMr Floor 517 4th Aw. S. I 327-1541 catch Baltimore Orioles, who have been winning all along with strong pitching. Age could make the Orioles vulnerable. Brooks Robinson, their superb third baseman, and 18-game winner Mike Cuellar will both be 37 in May. But they still have a formi- dable starting staff in Cy Young Award- winner Jim Palmer, Cuellar, Dave McNally and Doyle Alexander. Defensively, no infield in the majors is better than the Oriole combination of first baseman Boog Powell, second baseman Bobby Grich, third baseman Robinson and shortstop Mark Belanger Milwaukee Brewers feel that an off-season deal with California Angels could move them into contention. The trade brought them Clyde Wright, a solid starting pitcher despite an 11-19 record last year, and Ken Berry, one of the best centre fielders in the game.

Other key men for the Brewers will be first baseman George Scott and outfielder Dave May, two of the league's most dangerous hitters last season, and Don Money, a solid third baseman. A power-laden lineup is un- likely to keep Detroit Tigers from looking their age this summer. Such mainstays as Norm Cash, Bill Freehan and Mickey Lolich must prove their best years are not behind them. New manager Ralph Houk has decided that Al Kaline, once the league's best righthander, will be used exclusively as a designated hitter. Still, Houk may be better off in Detroit than he would have been with his old employers, New York Yankees. .The Yankees have added outfielder Lou Pimella from Kansas City Royals, but nothing much has been done to strengthen the middle of their infield. Gene Michael, 35, and Horace Clarke, 34, aren't likely to become any more spry this summer. The one thing certain about the American League East race is that Cleveland Indians will be out of it shortly after May 1. Acquisition of Jim Perry, brother of Gaylord, should help their pitching. season opener? ASSOCIATED PKEtt With Henry Aaron's btf tat aimed at baseball history, the 1974 season opens today In Cincinnati and Texas. But Aaron, swiitflof for Us record 714th home run, may not be in Atlanta's lineup when the Braves take the field against Cincinnati Reds In the National League opener. The American League season opens with Oakland's defending world champions at Texas for a night game against the Rangers. With nationwide attention glued to Aaron until he hits No. 714 to tie Babe Ruth's all- time record and No. to pass it, there was a chance that he might sit out the opener and play instead on Saturday when the Braves- Reds game is scheduled for national television When and wjhere Aaron plays his first few games this season has been the subject of winterlong debate. It seemed settled a few weeks ago when Commissioner Bowie Kuhn strongly suggested to the Braves that they use Aaron in the same pattern as last year, when he played in two of every three games STORES Corner 3rd Ave. and 8th St. S.

On big names like CGE, Hoover and Sanyo There was to be a meeting between the commissioner. Aaron and'Atlanta manafer Eddie Mathews this spring, but apparently it never took place. "He won't meet with me and he won't meet with Hank." said Mathews. "Hank's the guy who has to play and I'm the guy who has to make out the lineup. What if it's 30 degrees? Does he still have to play? What if he hurts himself playing in weather- liiie "Since I was the one in- volved." said Aaron. "I think that maybe he (Kuhn) should have talked to me. He didn't. The only ones I've talked with is the Braves. I realize the commissioner is thinking of the good of the fans, but I don't think he's thinking of my good." The commissioner is in Cin- cinnati for the opener and scheduled a news conference with Aaron for a few hours be- fore the opening game There were indications, however, that the conference had nothing to do with Aaron's presence in or absence from Atlanta's opening game lineup Jack Billingham is Cincin- nati's starter with Carl Morton set to open for the Braves And Billingham is perfectly aware of what will happen when and if Aaron steps to the plate "Everybody in the place is going to give him a standing ovation when he comes up to the Reds' pitcher said "My stomach is probably going to turn over a couple of times and, I'll swallow hard Then I'll have to get down to business Oakland and Texas will get down to business a few hours later and when they do, the Texas club will be operating with a new set of owners.
