Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta }4 THS LETHMIDGI HERALD FrWay, I, 1973--------------------------------------------- Toronto bid goes by ivayside CFL meetings close fear labor dispute OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Football League's semi-an- nual meeting closed with a rush Thursday night, but not before the executive committee had dealt with a variety of topics. The meeting originally had been scheduled to end today, but a threatened tie-up of air traffic in several Canadian cities because of a labor dis- pute, forced an increased pace on officials of the nine dubs. But before going into session (or their final few decisions, the executive committee concluded that it could not accept a bid by Maple Leaf Gardens Ltd., to es- tablish a second league fran- chise in Toronto. The committee ruled that an application filed by the Gardens could not be processed because vice-president Bill Ballard of the new group had not obtained permission from Toronto Argo- nauts to apply. "It would be necessary for the applicant to first get clear- ance from the team that holds the exclusive CFL rights in that CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur said, adding that the applicants had not done so.

In two five-inning encounters, Highway 23 were dumped 18-2 by the Labor Club Athletics and 13-0 by the Lethbridge Miners. In, the first contest, the Ath- letics used 15 walks to their advantage along with seven hits -to defeat Highway 23 easily. George Jackci went the dis- tance for the mound win while starter Bill Plourd took the loss. Plourd was relieved by Wayne Schnoor in the second .inning.

Meanwhile in the second con- test, the Miners also used bases on balls to their advantage to drop Highway 23. Losing pitcher Ken Munton issued 11 walks and gave up six hits in the five-inning match while starter Richard Mercier earned the win. Mercier, who didn't give up a hit in three innings, was re- lieved by George Santoni. Blair Hurt led the Miners' attack with two singles in three at bats while Larry Tratch add- ed a double. Wayne Shearer managed the lone hit for the losers as he tag- ged a fourth inning single off Santoni. Meanwhile in Commercial Men's Slow Pitch League play last night, BUI Gourk blasted a grand-slam home run to give Lethbridge Glass a slim 11-9 win over Western Truck and Body Sleepers.

PHONE 328-9271 bid, the application by Ballard never reached the voting stage. Lew Hayman, president of the Argos, said neither he nor chairman of the board John Bassett had been approached. Even if approval to apply to the league was granted by the Argonauts, it would still take unanimous consent by the four EFC teams and a favorable vote by three of the five West ern Football Conference clubs for the application to be ac- cepted. The entire situation became almost ludricous when Ralph Sazio, Hamilton Tiger-Cats dele- gate on the executive, said that even if the Argonauts were ap- proached and agreed to allow the re-application, he would vote against it, thus ending all chances of acceptance by the CFL. Gaudaur indicated the deposit that accompanied the application will be returned to the bidder less any expenses the CFL incurred. He said that similar deposit cheques had been returned to previous fran- chise seekers. In other business, ratification of the 1974 schedule was de- layed until June 27, the date of the league all-star game at Hamilton, Ont. The move to an equal 16- game schedule by all teams in both the East and West next year and the adoption of identi- cal sudden-death semi-final and final playoff games in each con- ference, has allowed the league to move the date of the 1974 Grep Cup game in Vancouver ahead one week to Sunday Nov. 24. The 1974 season will see the earliest start ever, with the first game slated for July 24 and the final contest for Nov. 3. This year's Grey Cup game, to be held in Toronto Nov. 25, will be more expensive for the fans. Gaudaur said ticket prices will range to from as compared to last year's figures of and During its closing session the committee moved to eliminate the sometimes suspicious player suspensions that in the past have allowed some teams to circumvent the 32-man roster rule. Previously when a player was suspended he could be placed on a five-day trial without being returned to the team roster. This year the suspended player must be accounted for on the team's list of active players be- fore he can practise with the club. At the same tune a motion by Edmonton Eskimos to increase the number of Canadian players carried by each team to 18 was defeated. The rosters will re- main the same with 17 Cana- dians and 15 Americans on each squad. The league also voted to turn down an appeal for financial as- sistance from the senior Ontario Rugby Football Union. The league has agreed to pay out for computer services in two different areas, Gaudaur said.

Sullivan, who toiled in Triple A baseball within the Monteal Expo chain last year, saw his first action in the six-team lea- gue Thursday and after a shaky start settled down to handcuff Calgary Jimmies in the late stages of a 7-6 Lethbridge Laker victory. Lakers, now 2-1, were aided by a stiff northwest wind and pouring rain as they chalked up the narrow win. Jimmies, defending league champions, led 6-2 after three innings but could not cool the hot bats of the Lakers in the sixth inning as the second-year Lethbridge club erupted for five runs and the winning mar- gin. Sullivan fanned 10 Jimmies, four of the last five men he faced, while yielding just five hits. John Elick, playing-coach of the Jimmies said after the game "we could hit Sullivan, but the cold just wouldn't let us swing at the ball." They hit Sullivan alright. Of the five hits the hard-throwing right-hander gave up, two were broken bat singles and another a wrong-field home run. With the exception of two bad throws Laker outfielders were called on to make a play only three times. BATTLED BACK Lakers, who battled back to tie the game 2-2 in the top of the third after giving up two runs in the second, picked up their five runs against relief pitcher Malcolm Lynn. Starter Harvey Gable was chased af- ter two and two-third innings. Combined, the Calgary hurl- ers gave up eight hits while throwing the third strike past five Lakers. Brian Hogan and Tim Negrel- lo weilded the big wood for the Lakers in their sixth-inning uprising. Negrello chased teammates Howie Heggedal and Wayne Commodore home with a bases- loaded double and then scamp- ered home with the eventual winning run as he followed Rob Roy across home plate after Hogan had stroked a 3-2 pitch up the middle. Heggedal chipped in with two singles. Rookie Ken Grove was behind on Sullivan's fastball in the third inning but managed to slam it over the left-field fence just inside the post. Shortstop Rich Meily had two singles while Groves also had a sin- gle. Lakers will be at home for a weekend pair of games against Edmonton Blockers. The locals meet the northern club at eight o'clock Saturday night and again at Sunday afternoon. It is hoped that the four im- ports Lakers are allowed will be in camp this evening. The foursome, from Gonzaga Uni- versity, include infielders Lenn Sakata. and Tom Foster, catch- er Dave Whiteaker and pitcher Mike Davey. Lethbridge manager Ron Taylor was more than pleased with his charges after Thurs- day's wind-chilled victory. "I like the way they came back after being down he said. "That's always a good sign." "You know, we could be 3-0 right he added. "Oh well, we'll see if we can't get a couple of wins on the weekend. Meanwhile in Edmonton the Edmonton Blockers scored their first victory of the season with a 4-2 win over Edmonton Tig- ers Thursday night. The Blockers scored two runs in the first inning, one in the seventh and one in the eighth as Glen Winder picked up the victory. Winder limited the Tigers to six hits and two unearned runs, both in the eighth inning. The Blockers came up with seven hits in the game, but committed the only two errors. Doug Honne started on the mound for Tigers and took the loss. He was relieved by Mickey Hall in the eighth. As a result of Thursday's win the Lakers move into a sec- ond place tie with Edmonton Tigers each with 2-1 marks. Jimmies, with a 3-2 log are on top by one-half game over the Lakers and Tigers while Cal- gary Giants are 1-1 with Red Deer Generals 1-2 and Edmon- ton Blockers 1-3.

WINGS SIGN COLLINS DETROIT (AP) Veteran right-winger Billy Collins was signed to a three-year contract Thursday by Detroit Red Wings, general manager Ned Harkness said. The 29-year-old Collins had 42 points last season on 21 goals and 21 assists.

NIEKRO OUT ATLANTA (AP) Knuck- leballer Phil Niekro of Atlanta Braves will miss perhaps three starting turns because of a pulled muscle in his rib cage, the National League baseball club announced.

Savard was the Bruins' first choice in the NHL amateur draft last month and also was the top pick of Quebec Les Nor- diques of the World Hockey As- sociation. Savard led the Quebec junior league in scoring in 1972-73 with 67 goals and 94 assists for 151 points. He was expected to be in Bos- ton today to sign a multi-year contract with the Bruins. Jacques Plante, general man- ager and coach of Les Nor- diques, said in an interview one of the reasons the young centre opted for the Bruins was the prestige of the NHL. He said the monetary offers of the two were dmilac.
