Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta � , THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID ~- TumcIciy, February 27, 1973 Morrison ivins 6 A9 section title Locals one victory away from berth in Dominions Ky PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sporls Editor * Bob Morrison of the Leth-bridge RCMP is one victory away from a berth in the Roth- llllllllllllllllll man's Canadian Policemen's curling championships in Winnipeg. The local foursome put a healthy down payment on tickets to Winnipeg M o n d ay Bowling Banter Calls the shots Bob Morrison of the Lethbridge RCMP won the section "A" title at the Alberta Policemen's curling playdowns. Monday at the Lethbridge Curling Club, Morrison awaits the winner of the "B" section'. Formalities seem all that is left Baseball conflict not over? By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The conflict between major league baseball owners and their players is virtually resolved but it won't be over officially until at least Wednesday. That's when Marvin Miller, outspoken executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, meets with player representatives of the 24 teams to brief them on the agreement achieved with the club owners. Miller and the owners' repre-s e n t a t i v e, John Gaherin, wouldn't disclose any details of the agreement-although plenty of them leaked out anyway. And it still isn't official. Both the owners and players must ratify it. That, however, appears to be merely a formality. For even as the announcement of the settlement was being made, players were already flooding into spring training camps to begin getting in shape for the season that will open-on time this year-barely a month away. The agreement is not only preventing another divisive and costly strike, it is hardly ruffling the spring training schedules. As of now, only four teams-Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, New York Mets and Minnesota Twins-have called off any exhibition games at all. The only other casualty of any consequence was the cancellation by Pittsburgh Pirates of their three-game exhibition series this weekend in Mexico. "It's a fine agreement," said Miller. "I think there is a strong chance for approval." That approval must come before the March 31 expiration of the old contract. Among the reported details of the new pact are: -A minimum salary of $15,-000 for major leaguers. In 1967, for a comparison, the minimum was $7,000. -A maximum cut of 20 per cent of a player's salary after he has a poor year and a maximum decrease of 30 per cent over two years. The old terms pei-mitted a one-year slash of 25 per cent and a two-year cut of 44 per cent. -A month's pay for a player released in spring training, two More sport on page 10 month's pay if he's cut between the April 6 start of the season and May 15, and a full-season's pay if he's released after May 15. Previously, the player got nothing but a handshake if he was cut during spring training, one month's pay if he was cut any time after the start of the regular season. Tom Seaver won't have to worry about such details. The pitching ace of the New York Mets, a six-time All-Star who posted a 21-12 record last year, signed his 1973 contract Monday for a reported $140,000. Other signings included catcher Mike Ryan and pitcher Jim Nash of Philadelphia, outfielder Reggie Smith of Boston, pitcher Mel Stottlemyre and second baseman Horaace Clarke of New York Yankees and infielder Steve Garvey of Los Angeles Dodgers.
