Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta B - THi ICTHBR1D0B HIRAlD - Friday, April 17, 1970 Anderson's Club Off To Flying Start Rookie Leads The Way For Reds By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Don Gullett, a 19-year-old left-hander, was drafted last June by Cincinnati Reds and the rest of the National League is on the receiving end of his meteoric rise to stardom. "In time, he'll be nothing but a star-we're seeing a star being born right before our eyes," said manager Sparky Anderson after Gullett picked up his first major league victory with five scoreless innings of three-hit relief and got the win in Cincinnat's 12-2 romp over Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday night. "He'll have his bad outings in the future, sure, but he can't miss being a great one." Those are strong words of praise for a rookie less than a year out of high school in Kentucky, who made only 11 appearances in the minors before he was added to the Reds' roster just before opening day. But the figures back him up. ANDY CAPP NPtTiONRL BSSiSTRMCE Dislike Board's Decision Canadians Upset TORONTO (CP) - Canadian golf professionals are voicing complaints over the choice of United States golf professional Tommy Aaron to shoot the target score for National Golf Week June 6-14. The Royal Canadian Golf As-'sociation, which sponsors the event to r'aise money, for junior programs, has decided tnat Aaron will create more interest across Canada. A number of Canada's club professionals are upset because Aaron was picked over Bob Cox of Vancouver, defending Canadian professional champion. Normally, the top male and female golfers in Canada play one round and club members across the country, using their handicaps, attempt to beat those gross scores with their net scores. Dawson Calls Special Meeting WINNIPEG (CP) - A special meeting ' of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association's board of directors has been called for this weekend in Montreal, CAHA president Earl Dawson said today. A number of items will be discussed but the major reason for the special session is to formulate policy on possible changes to the CAHA-National Hockey League agreement. The changes were not specified. This policy will be presented April 20 to a, meeting of the NHL ofioials in Montreal. Gordon Juckes, executive director of the CAHA, said "certain ideas were formulated" on changes to the draft and development programs when the CAHA held its regular meeting here in Januray". Those ideas have been circulated among CAHA officials in the past few months to obtain a general concensus. Dawson said that other items to be discussed at the closed meetings include the federal government's policy on amateur sport, the 1971 winter games in Saskatoon and junior hockey in general. Fairey Placed On Expos Roster MONTREAL (CP) - Montreal Expos of baseball's National League announced Thursday that outfielder Jim Fairey has been placed on the team's 25-man active roster. Fairey, has been on the 21-day disabled list since March 25, recovering from surgery for a torn cartilage in his left knee. He will report to the Expos in Chicago, in time for the game against the Cubs today. Win up to $1,000 WITH EXPORT CIGARETTE TOBACCO Jo win you must qualify under whs appttring on uitilicsu. Any club member can play in the competition for a fee of $1. Each club gets 50 per cent of the money, used to promote junior golf. The RCGA gets flie other half to use for junior development at the national level. One Canadian Professional G o 1 f e f s Association member said: ' "Cox beat both Al Balding and George Knudson, both of Toronto. Do you think if Knudson had won it, they'd have shoved him.aside in favor of Aaron? "He won the Saskatchewan, Alberta and Atlantic opens in addition to the tour championship last year." Aaron won the Canadian Open last year and his fee of $2,000 is being split 50-50 between .the Canadian Open committee and the RCGA. The decision to have an American shoot the target score was arrived at between officials BUI Hamilton of the CPGA and L. V. Kavanaugh of the RCGA. Ron Fitch of Vancouver, CPGA president, agrees with the decision. "As far" as I'm concerned, the way the RCGA wants to do it is their own business," Fitch said during a visit to Toronto. "If they feel they can raise more money by bringing in Tommy Aaron, then it's my feeling that it's a very, very good thing for junior golf. A lot of prizes purchased for junior golf tournaments come out of the pro shop, so the pr'os benefit that way." Ed Moir, chairman of Na tional Golf Week, says the choice of Aaron was mainly economic. "We believe that people would rather play against a name player such as Tommy Aaron than against Bob Cox, who is not so well known," said Moir. Cox, who had not yet been in formed of the RCGA's decision, expressed surprise in Vancou ver upon learning he had been bypassed for Aaron. He had been planning to do the tour. "I understood it to be an honor which goes with winning the tournament," he said. He thought it was "pretty well automatic" for the Canadian professional champion to shoot the target score. Gullett has pitched 6 1-3 innings in three big league games, allowing four hits, no runs, four' walks and four strikeouts. GIANTS EDGE ASTROS Elsewhere in the NL, San Francisco Giants outslugged Houston Astros 11-9 in 10 innings, Sar Diego Padres topped Atlanta Braves 5-4 in 10, Pittsburgh Pirates beat New York Mets 7-4 and Chicago Cubs nipped Philadelphia Phillies 6-5, also in 10 innings. St. Louis Cardinals and Montreal Expos were idle. Gullett walked and stole a base to ignite 'a five-run Reds the fifth inning and touched off a three-run rally in the sixth with a triple.. Lee May capped the five-run inning with a grand slam and Tony Perez hit a two-run homer in the eighth. "It was exciting," Gullett said of his first major league victory. "These hitters are a lot better than any I ever faced. "I know I've got to get them out. But one hitter doesn't bother me any more than the next. They're just hitters and they can be gotten out." Gullett's performance was especially welcome because the Reds lost right-hander Jim Ma-loney, who injured the Achilles tendon in his left leg in the third inning and was placed on the 60-day disabled list. M SQUAD LEADS San Francisco's M /Squad powered the Giants, past Houston. Willie Mays tied the game with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, his first of the season and 601st of his career, and Willie McCovey won it with a two-run shot in the 10th. Tito Fuentes also connected for the Giants while Denis Menke and Jim Wynn homered for* the Astros. Meanwhile Baltimore manager Earl Weaver, hours after minor throat surgery, successfully whispered a complaint to reverse an umpiring decision Thursday night. But the effort was not enough as Frank Moh-ward made a loud noise with his bat and Washington Senators gained a 4-2 American League win over Weaver's Orioles. Howard clubbed his second home run of the season and winning pitcher Joe Coleman Jr. helped his own cause with a two-run double. California Angels cut Minnesota's unbeaten streak at five games with a 3-2 win over the Twins, Oakland Athletics stopped Chicago White Sox 3-1, Kansas City Royals outscored Milwaukee Brewers 8-6, Detroit Tigers beat Cleveland Indians 4-2 and Boston Red Sox downed New York Yankees 8-5 in other AL games Thursday. Weaver, who had a cyst removed from his throat, objected to an out call on Don Buford in the third inning, claiming the umpire's view was obstructed when Washington first baseman Mike Epstein hobbled the ball GOT THIRD OPINION _ Weaver appealed to another umpire who had a clear view and the verdict was reversed. The protest was in vain as Coleman, 23, checked the Ori oles on seven hits and the Sena tors recorded their third straight victory. Ken Tatum's clutch relief pitching and a three-run fourth inning enabled the Angels to end Minnesota's streak. Tatum stopped Twins' eighth-inning uprising after Harmon Killebrew had opened with a single and was tripled home by Tony Oliva. After another walk by starter and winner Rudy May, Tatum came on and got Leo Cardenas to hit into a double play and struck out. George Mitterwald. John (Blue Moon) Odom scattered six hits and was backed by Oakland's 10-hit attack. Odom, 2-1, struck out eight and walked two. Chicago's lone run came on a 450-foot homer by Buddy Bradford.
