Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April 18, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 13 Pat Sullivan It has to be the baseball season Jimmy McLaren is limbering up his fingers for another season at the organ at Lethbndge Lakers' home games He tells me he has three blind mice down perfect as well as the familar Laker charge he played so olten last season And then there are the Lakers themselves It looks like another season of feeling as though I'm talking to myself It may sound strange, but when you approach someone else with the same nickname and congratulate him, or rib scorn him a bit, whatever the case may be, you do feel as though you are talking in a mirror 1 had this feeling a number of times last season when talking to Paul Sullivan of Toronto Sullivan was the Lakers' ace righthander and was also nicknamed Sully I've had the nickname Sully since my school days I think I answered manager Ron Taylor as many times last year as Paul did When Taylor hollered Sullivan, and I was close at hand, he received two replies This season could see me talking to myself even more as Sullivan is returning, sometime in the next two weeks, to play and manage the Lakers Word of Sullivan's return was announced Wednesday by Laker president Reno Lizzi Sullivan who felt Montreal Expos had given up on him too soon because of arm troubles, got a whirl with the New York Mets of the National Baseball League, but was released In all likelihood, Sullivan could have caught on with another club, possibly in the minors However, Canada is home and Sullivan and his wife enjoyed Lethbndge and are now headed back to the sunny south Lizzi was beaming as he talked about some of the players the Lakers will have in their 1974 camp, names of which will be announced soon Lakers pennant winners in the Alberta Major Baseball League last season, and Alberta representatives at the Canadian baseball finals, could have as many as six all- Canadian team players on their roster Sullivan, it can safely be said, will have quite a ball club to handle Local players, as well as a couple of out-of-town tryouts, will begin workouts Friday under the watchful guidance of Brian Hogan We have lots of good news for the people of Southern Alberta said Lizzi "We're going to have a whale of a ball club At present, only two players from last year's club, will definitely not be back Wayne Commodore who left the club just before playoffs, and Al Frechuk I would be remiss if I did not comment on the season ticket prices for Laker home games The entire Laker executive makes it very clear that the team is not out to make bundles of money but to border on financial chaos is another thing Season tickets for the Lakers' home games will be for 16 home games In this day of inflation one can still find a bargain, it seems General admission is a buck and a half, and that should be within the reach of most people 'We want to make this a family show 'he said "If we play good entertaining baseball for the people enough will come out at these prices and we 11 do just fine That in a nutshell, is the Lakers goal and, all things being equal they shouldn I

scorers The lone goal for the Czechs was scored by Jiri Hohk on a power play but the penalty probably aided the Russians in the long run Gennadi Tsigankov of the Soviet Union was given five minutes

SPORTS This ween s topic is the Flinch The flinch is an involuntary reaction m anticipation lo the sound and recoil of a gun going otf It you have it your shooting is terrible il for no other reason than yjur snooting eye is likely to be closed at that critical momenl when the gun goes off Target shooters have the biggest problem combating the Flinch This is because they shoot deliberately and not in the excitement of the hunt A great deal of the problem is psycological and related to noise If someone sets a firecracker off under your chair there would be an involuntary tendency to jump Rule one then is to wear the proper ear muffs to keep sound levels to a minimum Another cause is more real and this one has to do with Newton s law which says that for every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction As the bullet speeds forward the heavier gun must move backward even though at a small fraction of the bullets velocity This iS why Magnums are hard to shoot accurately and are best left to the experienced marksman Even the ladies car shoot a 243 with no problems but it takes some experience to handle the hefty recoil of a 338 Winchester Magnum A third factor is not so apparent and that is slock design A properly designed stock built 10 fit the shooter can sub stantially eliminate much of the recoil effect It should be straight with a minimum drop at the heel with a strongly forward sloping comb and a bit of cast off P-operly designed a stock can so minimize recoil thai a 300 Weatherby will be more peasant to shoot than a A final factor in recoil effect the position that the gun is fired from A 12 Guage shoiyun acuially has a lot of recoil but it is customarily fired from the standing position with the body swinging smoothly to track the bird We would certainly advise most strongly against anyone firing a shotgun from the conventional prone position favoured by riflemen The firmer and more solid the position that Ihe gun is fired from the less give that the shoulder has 10 absorb Ihe recoil A good recoil pad nelos and should certainly be fitted to any rifle of Magnum designation With a properly fitted firearm some sound protection and enough experience to concentrate on marksmanship rather than the Flinch there will be no problems On the other hand if you have been cursed with a visitation by the Flinch waste no time in seeking assistance Until it has been excorsized you will never be able to shoot a score fill your bag or enjoy the shoot PLAINSMAN SPORTS Ml WESTERN CANADA'S LEADING SUPPLIER OF QUALITY FIREARMS, TARGET EQUIPMENT,
