Herald Sports LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. low 7tti SlrMt Shopping Mall Alborta Phone 328-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES I have always thought that baseball needed a black manager. my standards for a major league manager may fall somewhat short of what is necessary It has always been my contention that a Hank Aaron or Er- nie Banks or Frank Robinson would make an excellent manager I don't feel any of these and there are many more who enter one s mind when the topic is would be con- sidered a token black Each in his own way has contributed a great deal to the game of baseball But the question are they qualified as big league managers'7 I will go so far as to yes they are as good as some major league managers drawing salaries today But these are the hangers on By the same a black has never been given the chance so how do we rate their talents when it comes to managing a team9 Each and every black player named as a candidate to manage a major league team has been a great player Many of them are super stars Is that all it takes to be a manager in the big leagues9 l used to think so But I am beginning to change my mind. Some of the best managers in the majors today would be listed as bench warmers when pertaining to their baseball careers Earl Weaver is a classical example of a learned manager that couldn t hit his own weight in the minors In Weaver's five full seasons in the Orioles have finished first four times Under Sparky Anderson the Cincinnati Reds have won three times in four years Weaver if vou never plaved an inning in the majors Anderson had one year with the Philadelphia Phillies The list goes on Walter Alston had one time at bat and struck out He has managed the Los Angeles and Brooklyn Dodgers for over 20 years Possibly the best manager of all Joe got no higher than Triple A Casey Al Lopez and John to name a few are names that pop up when discussing ex players who were great managers f It still stands to according to Bill Veeck who is much more baseball learned than you or I that the lesser player the better manager Guys who weren't great says Veeck. to learn more about the game to minimize their small ability The Irmge player has to scheme and connive and study just to hold a job and in the process he learns more about the game and peo pie than the star ever does I said one time that Hank Aaron would be the first black man to manage a major league club I still think so Whv hasn t there been a black manager9 The old tear of the unknown the notion that any deviation from the pattern somehow spells trouble Some baseball owners fear that a black manager may mean reduced attendance It wasn't that way when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier the day of the black what with all the publici- ty it is receiving is not far off The only question will whoever it is be qualified9 f Former Lethbndgeite Gregg Pilling was named as general manager coach of the new Philadelphia entry in the North American Hockej League According to father Washington and Philadelphia Flyers are expected to help stock the club Pilling had previously been at the helm of the Roanoke Rebels Lancers on top Ron far was called out at home Monday and Expo officials didn't like the call. Manager Gene Mauch makes his point with umpire Ed Sudol at right. Tigers set mark with first inning antics Red Sox don't need hits it would seem Sports of sorts PISTONS SOLD DETROIT Detroit Pistons were sold Monday for million to a group of De- troit area businessmen who pledged to keep the National Basketball Association team in Detroit.
