Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 - THE IETHBR1DGE HMAID - Thursday, January 28, 1971- Bobby Wine says fans are great Montreal just loves its Expo club By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer "Super!" That, in a word, is how Bobby Wine of the Montreal Expos described the Montreal fans in their acceptance of major league baseball. "You would have to see it to believe it," said the personable shortstop of the National Baseball League Expos. Wine was in Lethbridge Wednesday for a fastball-baseball coaches clinic co-sponsored by the Expos and O'Keefe Brewery. It has been said that the Montreal Expos have a large responsibility towards the people of Canada as they are the only major league baseball team in the country. If all the Expo shoulders carry the re- sponsibility as well as Wine there will never be any problems. For the best part of two hours Wine fielded questions fired at him by news media and baseball and fastball executives and was never stuck for an answer. He went through another three hour session in the evening. It was Wine's first trip west and to say he was impressed would be an understatement. Wine makes his home in Philadelphia and when told of his trip west to conduct seven clinics he asked if it was in the general vicinity of Montreal. He wanted to know if he could commute back and forth after each clinic. He was quick to find out he would be some 2,000 miles from home. Wine has been in baseball 10 years and at the age of 32 has spent nearly his entire 10 seasons with Gene Mauch. His respect and admiration for the Expo manager was best shown when asked about Mauch. "To me he's the greatest," said Wine. "He has an unbelievable knowledge of the game of baseball. You just ask anyone about Mauch and they'll tell just how brilliant he is." , A story broke from Montreal the first part of the week saying the Expos would be looking for 81 wins this year which would give them a .500 average. When asked about it Wine stated "I guess Gene is plan ning on playing a few games himself." Actually, Wine himself said at the end of last year that the objective should be 81 wins or better. Wine, it appeared, could tell a thousand stories about the Expo fans. Like the night they sat in pouring rain for 2% hours hollering play ball. "We just had to go out and play, they wouldn't leave," quipped Wine. "I remember one day a yonug boy was lost and the public address announcer said, "We have found a little boy wlto has lost his parents. He is in the press box and can be iden< tified by his Expo hat." Wine said "I looked up into the stands and there were about 20,000 people all wearing Expo hats." Expo fever hit Montreal with ah unbelievable force. According to Wine stores were selling everything Expo. Shirts, socks, pants, underwear, buttons, pennants, almost anything imaginable was being sold and advertised as being Expo until the owners of the Expos had to put a stop to it. The stores were doing it without permission because they didn't know any better. "I wasn't sure if I would be able to play anymore baseball in the major leagues after the Philadelphia Phillies no longer seemed to have any use for me," said Wine. "But Mauch and I got together and I headed for Montreal. I couldn't be happier. The people, the club, i everything is just great." I Super! BOBBY WINE WITH BASEBALL HEADS-Bobby Wine, centre, shortstop for the Montreal Expos of the National Baseball League, explains a part of the game of baseball to Jack Kerr, loft, and Larry Smith. Kerr is the manager of the Junior Miners while Smith is the southern representative for the Alberta Baseball Association.

NEW YORK (AP) - Boston's hard-pressed Patriots were expected to put rebuilding hopes ahead of financial hindrances today with the" selection of Heis-man Trophy winner Jim Plunkett as the No. 1 prize in the National Football League draft. Stanford's Plunkett, most prolific passer in major college history, and two other gifted quarterbacks, Archie Manning of Mississippi and Dan Pastorino of Santa Clare, loomed as the likely 1-2-3 picks in the draft, with Boston, New Orleans Saints and Houston Oilers on the receiving end in that order. The Patriots, the NFL's los ingest team last season, have been besieged with trade offers from clubs coveting the No pick, and, presumably, the strapping 23-year-old Stanford ace. But despite a financial bind involving Joe Kapp, their high-salaried holdover quarterback, and a need for short-order help that a multi-player trade might bring, they had made no move as the draft session's kiekoff approached. By drafting Plunkett, who holds the all-time major college records for passing yardage and total offence, Boston would have to take on another six-figure salary. Santa Clara as a passer, punter and placekicker. Most of the 26 NFL clubs, who drafted in reverse order of their won-lost percentages last season with the exception of the Super Bowl finalists', were looking for the best talent available, regardless of position, in the early going. But at least half of them Draft Plunkett NEW YORK (AP) - Quarter back Jim Plunkett, 1970 HeiS' man Trophy winner from Stanford, was selected by Boston Patriots today as No. 1 pick in the National Football League's college draft. The Patriots landed Plunkett, holder of the all-time major college records for passing and total yardage, after spurning numerous offers to swap the top choice in a package deal for established players. Plunkett, 23, passed for 7,544 yards and 52 touchdowns during his three-year college career and totalled 7,887 passing-rushing yards. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Stanford ace completed 53 per cent of his passes last season for 2,715 yards and 18 touchdowns He capped his senior year by leading the Indians to a 27-17 upset victory over Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. Plunkett is reported to be seeking a $250,000 contract. The Patriots, who drafted first because their 1970 won-lost record was the worst in the league, have another high-salaried quarterback in Joe Kapp. were in the market for quarterbacks With Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons Denver Broncos and, possibly, Green Bay Packers among quarterback-shoppers with high first-round choices, it was conceivable that Lynn Dickey of Kansas State, Duke's Leo Hart, Scott Hunter ANDY CAPP of Alabama and ail-American Joe Theismann of Notre Dame all could be tapped early. Baltimore's world champion Colts and Dallas Cowboys, Super Bowl losers, also were angling for quarterback insurance and each made a pitch for the No. 1 pick. The Colts, seeking an eventual successor to Johnny Unitas, 37, and his back-up man, Earl Mor-rall, 36, are reported to have offered Boston tight end John Mackey, among others, for a shot at Plunkett. The Cowboys, somewhat disillusioned with Craig Morton, were rumored to be dangling Bob Hayes and-or Calvin Hill as trade bait.
