Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta SHELTON DIGGS (ON GROUND) CATCHES GAME WINNING CONVERT FOR USC Contract said to be worth million Hunter becomes a Yankee NEW YORK (AP) New York Yankees pleased pitcher Jim (Catfish) Hunter with the richest contract in baseball history. That was relatively easy compared to the task which now faces the toughest sell in the major leagues, the New York fans and the New York media. If Hunter is successful, New York can be very friendly to a country boy from Hertford, N.C. But if he failure is judged by steeper standards here than anywhere else, particularly when you're paid as much as Hunter will York can be a tough place to live. Even if you have a contract worth million over five years. If Hunter thought he had it rough dealing with his former boss, Oakland A's owner Charles Finley, he might think again after enduring the ever- present media and thousands of victory-hungry fans in New York who won't be kind if he doesn't win fast and often. There is a hidden cost in Hunter's contract, believed to be one of the three or four largest ever negotiated in the kingdom of sport. If Hunter, acknowledged the winningest pitcher in baseball the past five seasons and the American League Cy Young Award winner with a 25-12 record in 1974, is worth million, then how far below fi- nancially should the rest of the team be? It's a good bet that the Yan- kees salary structure might be in for an inflationary push because of their newest player. Gabe Paul, president of the Yankees, who personally en- tered the chase for Hunter with two personal visits to Ahoskie, N.C., doesn't appear worried. He thinks Hunter can per- form and will perform. "We have been looking for a right-handed Paul said after Hunter signed Tues- day night. "In Hunter, we have the winner of the 1974 Cy Young Award. I don't think we can do any better than that. "If he wasn't as competitve as he is and had as much pride as he does, then we couldn't give him a multi-year con- tract." Paul says the players are welcoming Hunter with open arms. "The morale of the club will he improved and increased when you add a player of Hunter's Paul said. "The players I talked to all say signing Hunter would be great since it will enhance their chances for a World Series share." Several high baseball sources close to the negotiations told The Associated Press that Hunter's attorneys were ask- ing for a million bonus, a salary of a year for five years, attorneys' fees of a 10-year retirement plan calling for a year, a million life insurance policy on himself and a insurance policy on each of his two children. Snedden scores two Marilyn Snedden scored just 35 seconds into the game, and picked up another goal in the second period to lead the Labor Club Saints to a 4-1 win over the Hockey Hounds in ex- hibition girls' hockey. Elaine Yip and Elaine King- Brown scored the other goals for the Saints while Diane Boulton replied for the losers. The Saints picked up both of the minor penalties handed out. Next action in the Southern Alberta Girls' Hockey League is Sunday. The Saints face-off against Taber at Henderson Ice Centre beginning at a.m. while the Hockey Hounds take .on Winston Churchill at 11 a.m. at Adams Arena.
