Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, August 2, 1974 Farmers and Ranchers European Tour Depart Calgary Oct 28. 1974 Return Nov. 22, 1974. Priced per person double occupancy. Airfare. Accommodation, Meals, Many Extras For information and booking details contact: ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Pat Sullivan I have been wanting to say this for sometime now, and this is as good a time as any, the 1974 Alberta Major Baseball 'League leaves a great deal to be desired. I'm not knocking the players or the teams, but the executive of the league have done less than a first class job. When Russ Parker handed in-his resignation it was felt he would be hard to replace. Parker, it can be said, left a tough act to follow. But Bill Mann and his group haven't even been on stage. Lethbridge Lakers have three more home games and a few travel dates left in their 1974 regular season schedule. As I sit here at my Royal keyboard I have not yet received one statistic from the league. It would certainly be nice to know the records of visiting pitchers, some batting averages and overall just who is who. You can't even do a league standing as the results of some northern games remain a secret, much the same as the Super Series was. No. there is something lacking in the league when you can't get any stats. With Parker you knew where you stood. Under Mann a new position concerning statistics has been invented, it's called left out. Mann has a chance to make some amends to the league. All seven teams should be allowed to make the play offs. After allowing Calgary Jimmies to use nine imports in rota- tion when the league says just four Mann owes it to the remaining clubs who were left at the gate. Now that I'm through with that I must say that the Lethbridge Country Club is in excellent condition. I had the pleasure of joining Ed Englehart a round Wednesday afternoon. We had the misfortune of playing Ray Morton of the Canada Winter Games and Don Lymburner manager of the Country Club. Actually the game was enjoyable, we just lost out to our competitors. The annual Country Club Invitational golf tourney goes this weekend. As of Wednesday there were less than 20 entries left in the 144 golfer field. Weekend shotmakers will find the course's greens to be beautiful. Englehart and the fellows told me that the greens held well. I never worry about playing shots to the green. When I'm finished stick handling on the fairway I'm usually close enough to use my putter. All kidding aside however, the course is in the best shape it has been in for many years. It has almost always been in good condition but this time around it is in excellent shape. The weekend tourney will commence Saturday with an 18 hole medal qualifying round and then play moves to a match play form A horse race is planned for Monday with the 10 iow qualifiers taking part. Strike talks hit a snag WASHINGTON (AP) The on-again. off-again contract talks in the National Football League labor dispute are off again. W.J. Usery. chief federal mediator, recessed the negotiations for five days Beaver finals TABER (HNS) The Beaver A provincial tournament will be held here Saturday and Sunday with five teams competing. Teams will be here from Rochester, 70 miles northeast of Edmonton: Amisk, 15 miles south of Wainwright; Indus, east of Calgary; and Peace River. Games will be held both days at 10 a.m., 3 and p.m. The Taber Chiefs defeated Medicine Hat Yankees at Taber 5-2 two weeks ago and whipped them on their home grounds last week 25 to 2. It is for boys 13 years of age and under. Thursday amid charges and counter-charges by the strik- ing players and the owners. The NFL Players Associa- tion holds a news conference today to give what it called a comprehensive statement on the union's position. Bill Curry of Houston Oilers, president of the association, said the NFL management council, the owners' bargaining agent, has not taken the union's demands seriously. Usery said he recessed the negotiations because "an agreement can't be consum- mated at this time." The duration of the strike seemed to be taking its toll in veterans' sentiments, too. Several players expressed wavering opinions on their positions. "I don't think many ball players can afford to go through most of the exhibition season (on strike) and I don't think the owners can afford it said Miami running back Jim Kiick.

Fryman narrowly misses no-hitter Mauch knows what it is all about THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Gene Mauch, veteran man- ager of Montreal Expos, knows what the National League East race is all about. "Each team's best is pretty good." said Mauch. "It's just a case of which team plays its best the most number of games." Thursday night, Philadelphia and St. Louis came up with their best, or at least a reasonable facsimile. The Phillies beat Mauch's Montreal Expos 6-4 while the Cards rallied for three runs in the llth to trip Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2. That left Philadelphia and St. Louis tied for first place in the NL East. Meanwhile, Chicago Cubs, last in the division, swept a twi-night double header from New York Mets, winning the opener 7-4 in 10 innings and taking the nightcap 3-1. Elsewhere, Los Angeles Dodgers pounded San Diego Padres 8-1 and Cincinnati Reds outscored San Francisco Giants 97. Houston and Atlanta were not scheduled. HOMER HELPS PITCHER The Phillies won behind the seven-hit pitching of Wayne Twitchell, who was supported by a three-run homer by Del Unser in a five-run third in- ning. The Expos threatened to tie the game in the ninth, when a single by Bob Bailey and a tri- ple by Ron Fairly made it 64. But Barry Foote, represent- ing the tying run. struck out. The Cards jumped on Dave Giusti, Pittsburgh's normally stingy relief pitchers, for their three runs in the llth as Ken Reitz smacked a two-run dou- ble and scored on Mike Tyson's single. It was the sixth consecutive victory for the Cards and their 10th in il games. Don Kessinger drew a basesloaded walk and Chris Ward followed with a two-run single in the 10th inning of the opener for Chicago, while Dave LaRoche and Oscar Zamora combined to pitch a six-hitter in the nightcap. Home runs by Willie Craw- ford and Dave Lopes helped the Dodgers raise their season record to 10-0 against the Padres. The victory kept Los Angeles 5Vfe games ahead of second-place Cincinnati in the Charity the loser tonight THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Regardless of who wins tonight's National Football League exhibition game be- tween Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns, charity stands to be the big loser. The 29th annual Los Angeles Times charity game is one of three NFL games scheduled tonight that kick off the league's first big exhibition weekend. Officials project an attendance of about as compared to fans who showed up for last year's game with Dallas. Only 15.000 tickets have been sold to date, some fewer than a year ago at this time. The game raised about for charity last season, but that figure will be significantly less this time around. Those fans who do show up won't see many familiar faces on the field as most of the vet- erans are supporting the month-long players' strike. The Rams, for example, ten- tatively list only three return- ing veterans in their starting lineup. Among the less-familiar faces will be both starting quarterbacks. The Ranis plan to go with second-year man Ron Jaworski while the Browns will start Will Cureton, a free agent from East Texas State. The Rams will also unveil their top draft choice, Heisman Trophy-winning running back John Capelletti of Penn State. Green Bay is at Buffalo and Washington entertains New England in tonight's other games. NL West. Al Downing limited San Diego to three hits over the first six innings, then Mike Marshall finished up. The big one got away from Woodie Fryman Thursday night. Fishing for a no-hitter, De- troit's veteran pitcher came close but let it slip away while beating Milwaukee Brewers 2-0.

"I threw that pitch pretty much where I wanted and broke his bat with it, but it was just a little lower than I four said Fryman. Mitchell's two-out hit es- caped the grasp of Detroit shortstop Ed Brinkman and third baseman Aurelio Rodriguez. Fryman had accomplished one other one-hitter, against New York Mets while a Pitts- burgh Pirate rookie in 1966. In other American League games, Cleveland Indians beat New York Yankees 9-2: Boston Red Sox bombed Baltimore Orioles 11-3; Texas Rangers tripped Kansas City Royals 3-1; Minnesota Twins nipped California Angels 6-5 and Chicago White Sox stopped Oakland A's 7-3. CASH HOMERS Norm Cash hit his seventh homer of the season into the right field bleachers leading off Detroit's second inning, then gave Fryman a 2-0 cushion with a single follow- ing Ben Ogilvie's triple in the ninth inning. Fryman struck out 10 batters, including eight oi the first 14 men he faced. He walked three. Where will Kehoe play? TORONTO (CP) The hockey future of Toronto Maple Leafs' Rick Kehoe remains in doubt today as the World Hockey Associa- tion Thursday night re- jected a contract the right winger signed with Michigan Stags. The Globe and Mail said Kehoe had signed a three-year agreement with the Stags, for- merly Los Angeles Sharks, for But Kehoe's lawyer, Alan Eagleson, said the WHA opposed the contract on two points, claiming the Aug. 1 deadline for players jumping between the National Hockey League and the WHA had passed and that there was doubt about Kehoe's status with Toronto Toros, who had him on their negotiation list. Buck Houle, Toros' general manager, was not available for com- ment, but Eagleson said "the WHA is trying to force our position." "We have an agree- ment and intend to see that it is Eagleson said.
