"I think it's the most scared I've been since I was in a plane which had one engine go bad a few years ago. As a matter o fact, before I threw the firs pitch I asked Al Kaline, 'What the hell am I doing "I feel pretty gocd, but I'm not satisfied because I didn't go nine innings. I'm not thinking like a pitcher I made a cou pie of mistakes." Jerry Kenney, Thurman Mun son and Bobby Murcer hit tin mistakes out of (he park.

John Newcombe of Australia, he 1967 champion, had to play Andres Gimeno of Spain. Fains lined up all night for standing room on the centre court as Taylor hoped to be- come the first Eribon to reach ;he men's finals since Bunny Austin in 1938. But many fans- even British like to see EosewaU win Wimbledon at ast. The 35-y e a r -o 1 Australian st in the finals of 1954 and 1956. Then he turned profes- sional and was lost to Wimble- until open tennis was inau- gurated two years ago. Taylor never has beaten Rose- wall, or even won a set aigaonst lim.

Club Owners Surprised, Concerned TORONTO (CP) Club own- ers in the Ontario Hockey Asso- ciation Junior A series say their teams will not compete with any club in the Canadian Ama- teur Hockey Association which uses over-age players or re- ceives special financial assist- ance through the CAHA. The club owners, in a tele- gram Tuesday to the CAHA, said they are "surprised and concerned that the NHL (Na- tional Hockey League) would endorse an arrangement that places one league on a different basis from another league of the same category." The CAHA, backed by the NHL, made some concessions last month to Western Canada junior clubs to get them back into the CAHA, from which they had been independent for two years. The Western teams were given the right to use four over-age players a team during the first year of their return and two during the second year, after which no over-age players would be permitted. The Western teams were also jiven in travel expense iuncls in addition to for player development also given ;he Ontario and Quebec junior clubs. Ontario, Quebec and the West- ern teams are classified as Tier clubs while all other junior clubs in Canada are classified as Tier 2. The CAHA has not yet decided whether Tier 1 or Tier 2 clubs will compete for .he Memorial Cup, the top prize in Canadian junior hockey. Should the Cup be contested >y Tier 1 teams and Ontario >cat out Quebec, the OHA Jun- or A would not play off against the Western champions. The issues are expected to come up for discussion at a July 7 meeting here originally called to arrange the mechanics if a draft system between the wo tiers. volvement with gamblers.

The Yankees dropped four games behind Baltimore in the East Division when Jim Palmer hurled an eighth-hitter as the Orioles beat the Indians for the eighth straight time this season. Homers are hardly Tommy Helms' thing. But he slugged the Cincinnati Reds' first in their new Riverfront Stadium ballpark Wednesday night as they ripped Atlanta Braves 9-2 in the National B a s e b all League. The homer was Helms' first since the fourth game of the 1969 season and only the 15th of his big league career.

Helms savored his glory after he game. It's about time I hit a he said. Asked how far thought his shot traveled, Helms replied, "It's 330 feet down the left field line and I must have hit it 332." Rookie Wayne Simpson fired six-hitter and won his ninth straight, running his record to 12-1. JENKINS WINS IT The Cubs finally won a game, ending their longest losing streak since 1944 on Ferguson Jenkins' four-hitter over the Cardinals.
