Roy capture top baseball awards By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Lakers' 1973 baseball season was official- ly closed with an informal team banquet staged Wed- nesday night. Only a handful of ball play- ers along with a full slate of team officials and other digni- taries were in to help cap-off what could be said as the Lakers' most satisfying season. Many of the ball players did not return to Lethbridge after their trip to the Canadian senior baseball championships in Ed- N.B. and therefore missed the year-end celebra- tions. Lakers' Ron along with Paul Sullivan and Bob Brown stayed out east af- ter the finals while others such as Al Rod Taylor and the Maxwell Randy and Bryan had prior commitments. To recap the campaign would be an ardu- ous chore but perhaps a glimpse of the high-lites would suffice. The an all-Canadian opened the eyes of many local pessimists by cap- turing the 1973 southern divi- sion pennant of the Alberta Major Baseball League while only in their second year of op- eration. They continued their bid for recognition by winning the AMBL playoff tournament to determine the league's repre- sentatives in the Alberta per After knocking off the Alber- ta Baseball Association cham- pion Leduc Oilers in the the Lakers carried the province's colors in the Cana- dian finals where they posted a most respectable 8-2 record. Four of the Laker players which included Hob Wayne Sullivan and Brown were selected to the AMBL first all-star team while second team honors went to Howie Heggedal and Marty Maxwell. Roy along with Rod Taylor were also chosen to the All- Canadian team for the world championships to staged in Rome next month. Roy will not make the trip with the Canadian while Taylor is undecid- ed.

AMBL itself has been developing steadily since its in- ception in 1967 and I feel that the Lethbridge franchise has definitely been a key he added. Well the Lakers may have played a key role in'develop- ing the but Parker has been the spark-plug of the en- tire league. When the Commissioner of a league will take off his jacket and pitch in to help prepare a drenched ball then we must say he has done more than his share or work.

The Red Sox scored five runs in the first two in- cluding Tommy Harper's 16th home run of the season. The Tigers scored an unusual pair of runs in the first inning when Aurelio Rodriguez struck out with runners on second and third. But Minnesota catcher Phil Roof let the ball get past allowing both runners to score.

TORONTO In a bid for ammunition in the battle for young hockey a special National Hockey League com- mittee will recommend that the league rewrite a bylaw to allow for drafting 18-year-olds. we are doing is providing ourselves with the machinery to defend if league president Clarence Campbell said Wednesday after announcing the special com- mittee's major recommendation to the league board of gover- nors.

Campbell said the which met also erated its that the NHL won't merge with the World Hockey Association or take part in a common player draft. The NHL president noted that results of the CAHA-WHA meet- ing may make it unnecessary to draft 18-year-olds. Signings of so-called under- age junior hockey players by because the NHL doesn't draft juniors until they graduate from junior ranks at age 20. And the signings of the top junior talent by the WHA brought about Wednesday's meeting at which the special NHL committee argued six hours before coming to an ex- pected conclusion. The committee's recommen- dation brought an expression of disappointment from CAHA president Jack Devine of Belle- who said in an inter- view it could be an all-out war between the two professional leagues for 18-year-olds. Financial implications of the NHL joining contract dealings for juniors played a big part in the discussions Wednesday. we draft players at the age of it means they receive inflated salaries for two addi- tional years.
