Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuriday, April 12, 1973 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan have been promised some improvements in Vie press box at Henderson Lake Ball Park this summer, so there is nothing left to stop us. I thought I would get my dig in first before offering congratulations to the entire board of directors of the Leth- bridge Lakers of the Alberta Major Baseball League, an- chored by Reno Lizzi. By the time the first ball is thrown May 22, at the Lake, the city should be buz- zing in a fashion it has not for a good many years. We're going to have a ball club, and you can bat on that. The announcement that the Lakers will work in close as- Monday's meeting, which brought about all the excit- ing news about the Lakers, also saw the locals brought up to date on some excellent changes in the format of the Alberta league. Russ Parker of Calgary is the president of the league ard enthusiasm simply pours out of him when the topic of conversation is the Alberta Maior Baseball League. The league has been mak- ing progress in leaps and bounds in the last three years and much of the driving force behind the league has been Parker. But Parker is far from greedy when praise is being passed around. "It is because cf the hard work of the directors of team's like Lethbridge Lakers that the AMBL has become so suc- he can be heard to say. Parker is a class guy and wants his league to be the same. "We have instituted a few changes which I think will add to the popularity of the The rule which may be brought in, and one that drew a ripple of excitement from local officials, was a 90-sec- ond rule which would affect both teams. Under this ruling the offen- sive team has just 90 seconds to get onto the fje'd to begin an inning and the same ap- plies to the defence. They must be off the field and ready to have a man at the play in the same tima lapse. Parker also hinted a pos- sible pinch-runner for a "pit- cher or catcher that would not affect the status of the player. I for one, think it may be a good idea. If a catcher is at second base say, with two sociation with the San Diego Padres of the National Base- ball League would have been enough to satisfy a good many supporters. But with an es- tablished major leaguer at the helm, all the superlatives you want to use may not be enough. Ron Taylor (say it over in your minds a few times so you won't forget has major league still fresh in his mind. He had to hang up his spikes last year because of a faulty right wing. But according to reports, the 35- year-old manager of the Lak- ers, is an astute student of the game, a leader, so to speak, of young men. AuJ, he's also a bachelor gals. league.'' he said Monday. He was referring to two chances which will take place this year and another one in the possible future. Changes. I might add, that excite me to no end. Parker wants added in the game. No more three or four hour ball games unless it's extra innings of course in the league. The first change, aimed dir- ectly at the pitcher who naps while on the mound, is the new 15-second delivery rule. A pitcher, when the bases are empty, now has 15 seconds to deliver his next pitch after be receives the ball from the catcher. And according to Parker, "we'll have a watch on them." Secondly, the league has adopted the designated-hitter rule. There has been enough said about it and written about it that further explanation would simply be repetitious. Parker did say, and it makes sense, that one of the main reasons for the change would be to get another man into the game. away, why not allow a run- ner to replace him so that he can return to the dugout and get his gear on and not holdup proceedings? There will be the old die- hard who will cry "leave the game alone. We like it the way it is." All I can say is, you have to pay the admission fee. If you would rather watch a long-drawn out affair, than an all-hustle show, that's fine with me. I would just as soon spend 2% hours at the park and get my fill of continual activity, as spend four. Parker and the Alberta Major Baseball League are thinking. All of their steps are in the right direction. Canucks hot, triumph 5-4 PENTTCTON. B.C.

BUFFALO (CP) Georg (Punch) Imlacb, general man ager of Buffalo Sabres, de- scribes Tim Morton as a 4; year-old defenceman with a 30 year-old body. And Imlach subscribes to the theory that tfce five-foot, 10 inch, 180-pound Horton is on reason the Sabres will entertair Montreal Canadiens her tonight in the sixth game o their best-of-seven Stanley Cuj quarter-final round instead o watching other National Hocke League playoff games. While the now-famed Frencl Connection of centre Gilbert Perreault, left-winger Richarc Martin and Rene Robert, alonj with the superb goalteuding o veteran Roger Crozier havi been widely acclaimed, tb work of Horton on the Buffali blue-line has remained effective if at times unnoticed. He tunned in a strong per formanee in Montreal Tuesdaj night as the Sabres handed th CsEadiens their second straigh setback of the series as Buffal won a 3-2 decision on Robert' overtime goal. The Sabres are hoping for similar display from Hortoi tonight, when the two teams clash here in the sixth game with the Canadiens leading 3- in the series. Tonight's game will be tele- viserl nationally by the CBC be- ginning at 6 p.m. MST. TOOK A REST Horton was one of half-a dozen players given a res Wednesday by Buffalo coach Joe Crozier. Other absentees from the workout held at a sub- urban rink were defencemen Larry Hillman and Tracy Pratt forwards Don Luce and Craig Bamsay, and netminder Cro- zier. Coach Crozier held a free- skating workout for the players to iron out the kinks from the lengthy Tuesday night game He then worked individually with rookie defenceman Jim Schoenfeld, right-winger Larry Mickey and the Perreault line. Crozier refused to discuss Tuesday night's victory and said he wanted his players to concentrate on tonigJit's game. Meanwhile the Canadiens ar rived here late Wednesday night without left-winger Marc Tardif and with defenceman Guy Lapointe on the limp. Tardif required eight stitches to close a cut on his left eyelid after being struck by the stick of team-mate Rejean Houle. loule was bodychecked heavily )y Horton in Tuesday's game and in the crash his stick caught Tardif in the eye. BLOCKED SHOT Lapointe suffered an injury to iis right knee as he blocked a Martin slapsbot during the ivertime period of the same contest. He will skate today pending a decision on his availability for onight's game. Without Tardif and if the latter is unable to play- Montreal coach Scotty Bowman dress rookies Steve Shutt and Larry Robinson as their re- -.lacements. Neither Shutt nor Robinson have dressed for any of the five irevious games. In the meantime Ron Harris lasn't had many opportunities o prove it in his nomadic Na- ional Hockey League career, rat he seems to be an instant layoff hit. "The guy seems to be one of tose players who's just so-so uring the season that reaches peak in the playoffs." says ternie Geoffrion. Harris' coach earlier in the season at Atlanta. We hated to lose him, but we we looking for right wingers at the time." Harris vent to New York Rangers in a trade for Curt Bennett and was a key per- former in the Stanley Cup quar- ter-final against Boston Bruins, rocking and blocking the opposi-! lion as New York prevailed in! the best-of-seven series, 4-1. The 30-year-old native of Ver- dun, Que., labelled a journey- man performer in the NHL since graduating from the jun- ior Hamilton Red Wings in 1962, was used sparingly in his sec- ond stint with Detroit Red Wings in his only previous play- off appearance, in 1970. And until Rod Selling was sidelined for the year late in the season with a fractured collar bone, he was listed as the fifth New York defenceman. Against Boston, Harris was credited with several key hits- one of which knocked high-scor- ing Phil Esposito out with a se- vere knee injury and slowed up Bobby picking up a single minor penalty in the five-game series. Harris, a quiet-spoken and li- keable performer built along the lines of a fire hydrant, is one of the players Chicago Black Hawks will be keying on tonight when they open Sieir semi-final with New York. In Bloomington Philadelphia FJyers have the momentum and the urge to break their quarter-final jinx in the sixth game of their National Hockey League playoff with Minnesota North Stars.

George Hansen of the Cal- gary Stampeders of the West- ern Football Conference in the Canadian Football League and Canadian judo champion Phil lllingwcrth will join Floyd Na- trass, another Olympic team member in trapsnooUrg, Phi Tollestrup, a Canadian colleg all-star in basketball, and Duke Helgerson of the rodeo world Master of ceremonies for the event will be Pat Sullivan of the Lethbridge Herald.

Locals to form nucleus of team Judokans from the University of Lethbridge and the Leth- bridge YMCA captured their share of titles in the Al- berta judo championships recently held in Calgary. Phil Illingworth led the way or the locals as he dominated he middleweight class while fighting in black belt division. lUingworth was also named he grand champion of all the weights for his outstanding per- omiance. Guy Sunada walked away j rith the featherweight class competing in the same division I while Ray Teruya of Ranier Defeated Greg Senda of Leih- j Midge for the lightweight class. Casey Vankooten of Edmon- on went home with the Jighl- eavyweJciht class for the final rfack belt calceorv. In seniors competition, Gary Kay of Lethbridge earned the lightweight title as be bested teammates Tom Greenway and Guy Pomahac, who placed sec- ond and third respectively. Dave Nishi and Bill Strong- eagle grabbed second place standings in the one-day event. Nisbi fought in the lightweight while Strongeagle took on the light-heavyweights. Meanwhile an Alberta team was selected to go to the Na- tional championships slated for WhSteborse June 2. The team will consist of Sun- ada, Senda. Nishi. niingworth.

Each passing year brings to this posi- tion increasing responsibilities, covering many phases of both amateur and professional foot- ball organization. A native Calgarian. George joined the ranks of the "Big Red" team in 1959 as an of- fensive tackle, performing bril- liantly for the next eight years. Prior to his professional debut, j George played Junior Football in Calgary then travelled South to continue his education in Mississippi and Georgia. He earned "All-American" recog- nition as a tackle as Mississippi Delta Jr. College in 1956, and after graduation from the Uni- versity of Georgia returned ho to join the ranks of the Calgary Stampeders. i George is married and has two potential cheerleaders as j a family. i George gives his present job j the same 100 per cent effort he always gave as a player, and the Stampeder Football Club h profited greatly through Geo- rge's dedication and industry. LOTS OF TALENT Illingworth brings a wealth of iido talent to the Milk River Jinner. He is the current Canadian middleweight champion and recent competitions indicate he s headed in the same direc- tion for 1973. Politics hurt Dlingworth's per- 'ormance in the 1972 Olympic in Munich. He was left off the Ca- nadian team while the man he defeated for the Canadian title was named in his place. A petition and pressure from western judo groups reversed :he decision of the Canadian Judo Federation but by that time Illingworth had lost two months of valuable training. This has been a big year al- ready for the personable young man. He was named ath- ete of the year by the Leth- bridge Kinsmen Club and as well earned the same honors at the University of Lethbridge. Tickets tor Saturday's din- ner, set at 86, may still be ch- ained from any member of the Milk River Elks Club and at lie Elks Club in Lethbridge, Doug's.
