Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THI IITHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 27, 1972 It itm that kind of year for major league eball started two strikes behind New York Times Service NEW YORK It was a year when the supreme court ruled against an out- fielder, a woman umpire quit after one game in the minor leagues, 10 per cent of the players were traded in the big leagues and the World Series was won by a team with 19 mustaches and one mule. A strange year indeed. And, no matter how you looked at it. baseball started 1972 with two strikes on it one call- ed, the other threatened. The season, in fact, was delayed by the first general strike in the game's history and, for the rest of the troubled sum- mer, the action off the field upstaged the action on it. In between the lawsuits, the performers had their inn- ings. The Oakland A's won the American League's western title by five and a half games over the Chicago White Sox, then took the pennant in the fifth and last playoff game against the Detroit Tigers. In the National League, the Cin- cinnati Reds won the west, then edged the Pittsburgh Pirates in the ninth inning of the final playoff game on a wild pitch by Bob Moose. Then the A's, who had mi- Canadiens still riding on lop of heap grated from Philadelphia to Kansas City to Oakland, took the series in seven games from the Reds. Six of the sev- en were decided by one ran; nine of Oakland's 16 runs were batted in by Gene Tenace, who had hit five home runs in 52 games before tying a record with four in the series; and the A's pocketed a record purse of apiece for winning while the earned apiece for not vanning. Oakland even won without much help from Vida Blue, who pitched 13 fewer victor- ies than the year before. But then, the Philadelphia Phillies Minnesota North Stars; St. Louis at Chicago Black] League with a cracked i finished last despite 27 victor- while Toronto Maple Hawks and Philadelphia Flyers j cap that required two oper-, fav steve Cariton, and they are'host to Pittsburgh, i in Oakland against California, jations.
