Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta day, July 13, 1971 THE IITHBHIDGE HERALD T All Star encounter set to UIUV VlllV Bobby Murcer Carew .in the leadoft spc (AP) It's I affair like this-just give me the The hard-throwing Blue, talk of the majors with 17 victories halfway through the season hopes to help pitch the crestfal- len American league out o an two innings apiece after Blue goes the first three." Norm Cash of Delx'oit, the starting American League first baseman since top vote-getter Boog Powell of the Orioles is hurt, is one of three replace- ments for the injury-drained junior circuit. Cash said last week he didn't like to play in an All-Star game unless he was the top choice, but relented to play in Detroit since it is his home town. Centre-fielder Bobby Murcer of New York Yankees will sub- stitute for injured Tony Oliva of Minnesota Twins and Detroit's Bill Freehan will be catching for Cle ve 1 and Indians' Ray eight-game losing streak against the Nationals who will start the controversial hot-tem- pered Ellis. Blue and Ellis match up at p.m. MST, before an ex- pected turnout of 5M34. at Tiger Stadium while 50 million more on television. The CBO TV network will carry the game starting at 5 p.m. "I'm really glad to be here, I only hope I can help the Ameri; can League break this streak said Blue, Oakland's 21-year-old touthpaw who never saw an All-Star game in person. While Blue was an obvious choice to start because of his 17-3 record, Ellis wasn't so sure he'd draw the starting assign- ment despite his 14-3 mark. In fact he criticized National League manager Sparky Ander- son last week, saying he wouldn't start because "Ander- son doesn't like me." The Pittsburgh right-hander also said Anderson would never allow two black men to start the since Blue is a Negro "they wouldn't pitch two brothers against each other." BOY' "Ellis is just a young boy, having soms Anderson volleyed back at a news confer- ence Monday. "He doesn't mean to hurt any- body. And I certainly wouldn't stop anyone pitching for me just because of what he says about "Ellis' record speaks for itsell he's the best-restec pitcher on the squad. That's all I'm concerned about." Ellis, the Pirates' power pitchef who helped them estab- lish a ID-game spread in the Na- tional League East Division prior to the all-star break, will be backed by a lineup of fence- busters as the favored senior circuit tries to increase its 23- 17-1 edge in the mid-summer showdown. The first six hitters in the NL batting order have totalled 111 home runs-and 336 runs batted in-cenJre-fielder Willie Mays of San Francisco Giants; right- fielder Hank Aaron of Atlanta Braves; St. Louis Cardinals third baseman, Joe Torre; Pittsburgh leftfielder Willie Stargell; first baseman Willie McCovey of San Francisco and catcher Johnny Bench of Cincin- nati. Chicago Cubs' second base- man Glenn Bcckert, New York Mets' shortstop Bud Harrelson and Ellis round out the starting lineup. With Blue on the mound, and some hard-throwing pitchers in Jim Palmer and Mike Cuellar of Baltimore Ori- oles and Mickey Lolich of De- League man- ager Earl Weaver has a host of strong arms to try to silence the power-stacked Nationals. "I think they can match any- one coming out of a Fosse. Weaver's lineup includes Min- nesota second baseman Rod Carew in the leadoff spot, fol lowed by Murcer; Boston Red Sox' left-fielder, Carl Yastrzem- ski; B a 1U m o r e right-fielder Frank Robinson; Cash; thin baseman Brooks Robinson o Baltimore; Freehan, shortstoi Luis Aparicio of Boston anr1 Blue. Some historic homers have been hit in past By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS lines with a three-run homer VIDA BLUE DOCK ELLIS There have been some his- toric home runs over the years in baseball's All-Star games and tonight's classic in Detroit marks the 30th anni- versary of one of the most dramatic. It was in July, that Ted Williams of Boston Red Sox came up in the ninth in- ning with two on, two out and the Americans trailing the Nationals M. He walloped a 2-1 pitch from Claude Passeau of Chicago Cubs into the up- per-right-field stands at Briggs Stadium for a three- run homer. That one swing his mighty bat turned defeat into a 7-5 victory for the Americans. Williams, now manager of Washington Senators, went on that year to become the last 400 hitter in the major leagues. He finished the 1941 season with a .406 average. Babe Ruth of New York Yankees hit a two-run homer to give the Americans a 4-2 victory in the very first All- Star game-or the Midseason Interleague game, as it was then called. That was in 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago. PULL OUT TON Seventeen years later in the same park, in 1950, home runs by Ralph Kiner of Pittsburgh Pirates and Red Schoendienst of St. Louis Cardinals pulled out a 4-3 victory for the Na- tionals in 14 innings, the first extra inning AU-Staf game. Kiner's homer tied the score at 3-3 in the ninth and Schoendienst's blast won the game in the 14th. Williams suffered a bone fracture in his left elbow bumping into the left-field wall in that game. Stan Musial, famed St. Louis slugger, socked a home run in the 12th inning to give the National a 6-5 victory in the 1955 game at Milwaukee. Johnny Callison of Philadel- phia Phillies made the head- in the ninth inning that gave the Nationals a 7-4 victory m the 1964 game at Shea Stad- ium in New York. It was another homer, thi: one by Cincinnati Reds' Tonj Perez, that gave the National a 2-1 triumph in 15 innings in 1967 at Anaheim, Calif.

"Let's start at the beginning. _ "Why do all cars need a periodic wheel alignment? "As time goes by, the front wheels go out of true. They may toe-in. Or toe-out. Or they may slope in or slope out. (That's called camber and caster.) This happens when you hit potholes or curbs. But it also results from normal vibration. "Why is this a problem? "Because when front wheels are out of align- ment your car won't handle properly. Which can be a safety hazard. You can damage various mechanical components. And most of all, you can wear out your tires too fast. Far too fast. You will develop bald spots and scrapes on tires that are other- wise in pretty good shape. A tire that should go miles could need replacing at "So this could save you the price of a new set of tires Which is a pretty good investment in any language.
