Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI ICTHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 17, 1973 can beat the heat Stephen Gogo of 1525 20lh Avenue South, found a way to beat cooling than, a good session hockey in a nice cool rink. Stephen is the heat, go to hockey school. Nothing could be more relaxing and currently attending the Games City Hockey School. Many feel he doesn't have enough Do young players have rights? EDMONTON (CP) Willie Crankem is a fictitious hockey player, but the prob- lems he encountered face many amateur players in Al- berta. A report on the rights of in- dividuals in amateur hockey released today uses the case of Willie Crankem to illus- trate some of its criticisms. The report says all of the events in the Crankem case actually happened, but not all to a single individual. Crankem began playing hockey at the age of six and achieved success. "He learned to skate well. He used his stick well. He stood out among his young friends." His troubles began at 13 when he applied for a trans- fer from the local commtmity league, with which he had been associated for five years, to a Knights of Colum- bus Bantam AA league. The Edmonton Metropolitan Hockey Association (EMHA) refused his release on tie grounds that once In a district and affiliated with a club, a player could not be allowed to transfer unless his family moved. Willie's father ob- tained an injunctioii from the Alberta Supreme Court quash- ing the EMHA ruling. Willie moved on through the junior ranks, maintaining his good play. He was admitted to university, but had to with- draw temporarily for finan- cial reasons. Willie's team amalgamated with the only other Junior A team in the city, meaning an increased schedule and more travel which he could not af- ford as either a student or a worker. His alternatives were to: the new status of his team and attempt to cope with his diverse ambitions; a transfer to an- other team where the pace might be less hectic; a release and play for a local Junior B team where he might pursue his multiple ambitions on his own terms. He decided to seek his re- ii's mark seems safe at least for this year By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hank Aaron doesn't think he will equal Babe Ruth's home- run record of 714 this season. "I don't really think it's pos- the Atlanta slugger said Thursday after he had walloped his 702nd as the Braves handed the once-proud Chicago Cubs their llth straight National League defeat 10-2. "I'm just not going to playi that many more games. I'd like to hit five or six more and I think that's possible." The Braves have 38 games left to play, but the Aaron doesn't figure to play in all of them. Aaron's latest homer, his 29th of the season, came with two on off a 2-2 pitch by Cub pitcher Jack Aker and highlighted the Braves' nine-run rally in the CAPRI BOWL WILL START SEPT. 4 Pick A League and Join the Fun LADIES LEAGUES Wednesday and a.m. Tues., Wed., Thurs. p.m. p.m. p.m. MIXED LEAGUES Mon., Wed., Thurs., p.m. Mon., p.m YOUNG ADULTS MEN'S LEAGUE p.m. SENIOR CITIZENS p.m. Mon. and p.m. YOUTH BOWLERS REGISTRATION-SATURDAY, SEPT. 8th MOONLIGHT BOWLING i EVERY SUNDAY 8 p.m.-12 midnits MAKE UP A TEAM PHONE 328-4089 TODAY eighth inning that erased a 2-0 Chicago lead. Cleveland Indians blasted Kansas City out of first place in the American League West 10-4 and Oakland Athletics replaced the Royals in the top spot by defeating Boston Red Sox 6-3. San Francisco Giants shaded Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 in the National League in the only other major league game sched- uled Thursday. Aaron's homer was his first since July 31, which at the time put him 13 behind Ruth's record. "I'm happy to get off that Aaron said. "I was be- ginning to get superstitious about it." Aaron made an error in the seventh. At bat he singled in the first inning, flied out in the third, hit into a force play in the fifth and walked in the eighth before connecting for No. 702 his second time up in the eighth. Aaron's homer also brought him to within one of Stan Mu- sial's extra-base-hit record of For the unhappy Cubs, who only a month ago were leading the National League East with a won-Iost record of 50-42, Man- ager Whitey Lockman said: "There doesn't seem to be any lineup change left to make."

"Finally, last winter, when he was 18, Willie's ambitions to pursue a hockey career and his companion aspirations for certain other things in life shaped into a dilemma which literally overwhelmed him. WANTED OUT "In the fall, he had at- tended the local Major Junior A or Tier 2 training camp but had achieved only third place in the competition for his po- sition. So he had decided to take advantage of an associ- ation regulation permitting Junior B clubs to retain two Junior A players and to re- turn to his former Junior B club." But in January he heard on a radio newscast that he had been sold to another team in the Western Canada Hockey League "This sale came as a shock to Willie, for he was not aware that anyone owned him or had the right to sell him. "In the WCHL there is a subtle control device known as the protected list, or the list of 70, which gives to each team, without the involved player's knowledge, the prior- ity draft rights over 70 junior players in the territory." The report says Willie is still pondering his alterna- tives. He can "accept the trade, thereby keeping his hopes for professional play alive, but leaving home and giving up his educational goals." "Or he can return to his Junior B team, thereby giving up his chance to become a prime draft choice; or seek to re-establish his com- petitiveness through a hockey scholarship at the university, though he fears he may have forfeited this opportunity by playing one game at the Tier 1 level following training camp last fall."

Kuhn, who favors limited in- er-league play, cited but de- clined to explain a challenge by .he National League of his legal powers to cast the vote. How- ever, he said he is "not pre- cluding the possibility of casting t in the if the legal question is resolved. The impasse occurred as ex- >ected when American League owners and officials unani- mously favored inter-league play and the National League voted unanimously against it during the closing session of the major leagues' annual summer meetings. SPECIAL GROUP FORMED Kuhn announced creation of a "special blue ribbon steering committee" of five members, ncluding two owners in each league and himself, which he said will have broad authority to make recommendations on all baseball matters. The committee will report at the majors' meetings in Houston. Its members were not named. Bud Selig, president of the American League's Milwaukee Brewers, was disappointed but not surprised when inter-league pday failed to pass. "I didn't fall away in a dead said Selig, member of a four-man committee that has been studying the issue since January. "But the committee wouldn't have spent all these hours and travel if we didn't sincerely feel we had a he said. "The American League urged that we go ahead and take ac- tion on some form of inter- league play in Kuhn said. "The National League proposed that no action be taken. As a result, the matter was placed before the commissioner. "The National League ad- dressed itself that the commis- sioner had no legal power to vote on Kuhn said. "It was contended here that this was a matter on which only the two leagues can act. At this point I felt there were too many prob- lems with respect to inter- league play to take action at this time." Instead, Kuhn appointed the committee, which he said woulc have "authority unlimited in terms of areas In which it can make recommendations." Charles Bronfman, boarc chairman of the Nationa' League's Montreal Expos, said opposition to inter-league play is not rooted in the National's attendance advantage. "That goes In he said. "I think we already have the ultimate in inter-league piajr in the World Series. I don'i think inter-league play help the series." Bronfman also said that fans can better relate to rivalries when the opponents are famil- iar. "When you're playing a few teams a lot you're building an emotional response to those he said. "I don't know how many teams you can ask >eoiple to respond to." Phil Seghi, general mair.ger >f the American League's Cleveland Indians, took the op- posite view. "They say baseball is the na- .ional pastime, but it really sn't national if all the cities don't see all the he said.

"They do draw more people and they may have more newer parks and probably more name he said. "But the Amer- ican League is beginning to catch up. I think it's true that the closer the competition gets, we'll get rid of some of those things." Lethbridge Hotel North Stars captured the 1973 Southern Al- berta Major Man's Fastball League championship title by scaring a 6-1 victory over the Lethbridge Miners Thursday night. The North Stars, who needed only one game to dispose the pennant-winning Miners in the A-B final, walked away with the title by registering four straight wins in the seven-team double-knockout playoff series. In the final match staged at Dave Elton Park last night, the North Stars jumped to a 2-0 lead on back-to-back second- inning home runs by Mitch My- chasiuk and Tom Seaman, They added three more off losing pitcher George Santoni in the fifth and finished with a single run off reliever Gary Simmons In the sixth. The Miners tallied their only run in the sixth inning when Danny Santoni scored from sec- ond base on Don Dietzen's dou- ble. Ron Zasadny went the dis- tance to earn the win giving up five hits while fanning five. The two Miners' pitchers al- lowed six hits while combining for six strikeouts. Ken Bndzyoski led the North Stars with a pair of singles while Dietzen stroked a double and single and Dan Santoni a pair of singles in a losing cause.
