Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta y, July S, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Durocher lodges protest single spoils Seavers' bid By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 1L rained all over Denny Mc- Lain's parade bul the moisture left Leo Durocher a lol more upset lhan it did Atlanta's new- est resident. McLain, making his National League debut, was tied :i-3 in the eighth inning Tuesday night as Atlanta Braves tried to sweep a baseball doubleheader from Durocher's Chicago Cubs. Atlanta had taken the opener 5- 1. Jose Cardenal, who had ho- meral off McLain earlier, and Don Kessinger opened the Chi- cago eighth with singles and suddenly, Denny had runners on first and third with none out. Just as suddenly, the Atlanta skies opened up with an enor- mous downpour. The rain hit so swiftly that the ground crew was unable to get the tarps down over the infield. Soon, it was a swamp and the game had to be called, rescuing McLain from a precarious situation and leaving Durocher rather agi- tated. Leo decided that the Braves' ground crew didn't move quite as fast as it might have it the two runners on base were wear- ing Atlanta uniforms and for- mally protested the rainoul. AND FEENEY WON'T SAY National League president Chub Feeney said he would give careful consideration to the pro- test and ruled that the game could not be rescheduled until he ruled on it.

The Sports Car Club of Amer- ica, sanctioning body for the se- ries, is expected to announce an alternate track for lira race, probably in California. Fox, whose patronage of the financially-ailing track began earlier this year, said money problems are not behind the cancellation. "f imagine people will imme- I dialc gather from tills that we cancelled the race because we thought we'd lose money at he said. "That was the least of our worries. The Trans-Am (which had 14 cars on the start- ing grid) last year did better financially than any other race." The speedway president said the circuit did try to get an ear- lier date for the Trans-Am, but the SCCA was unable to provide one. "You can be sure, however, that we're going to hold a Trans-Am next year." The circuit, as well as run- ning regular regional racing and drag racing on its quarter- mile strip, which is part of the road circuit's main straight, has had two other major events this Continental for For- mula 5000 cars and one of the Player's challenge series which leads to the Canadian Formula B championship. Attendance at the Continental was less than despite an excellent entry list and the For- mula B event was held during a weekend which saw torrential rain during qualfiying runs. At- tendance at Ibis race was less than Attendance at road-racing has been sagging steadily since the circuit opened in the late 1960s anrt management has been un- able to come up with an explan- ation other than that people aren't interested. The track is 20 minutes by car from downtown Edmonton.

A crowd of showed at Atlanta Stadium for a gigantic July 4 fireworks display and McLain's debut. They gave Denny an car-shattering stand- ing ovation as he walked out to the mound to start the second game. "I've never experienced any- thing like said McLain, "not even in Detroit. This to- night was unbelievable. I could have got the saints in heaven in that first inning after that." All he had to do was get the Cubs of Chicago and for three said McLain. "I've got myself in super shape and I think I could pitch forever." The Cubs started nibbling away at McLain in the middle three innings and by the eighth, he had given up nine hits, the last two to Cardenal and Kessin- ger. At that point, Durocher was innings, he did that easily. "I had good rubbing liis har.ds in the dugout, anticipating some runs. Instead, he got some rain. Maybe Mc- Lain has friends among those saints in heaven. The Braves won the first game of the doublcheader, scor- ing four runs in the seventh in- ning on homers by Paul Casa- nova and Mike Lum to crack a 1-1 tie.
