Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Juna 1, 1974 DID YOU KNOW? That it costs no more to make all your travel arrangements through a travel agent. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Herald- Sports The ump says out Calgary Burns got a split in games Friday but not on this play. Newcomers fit right in for Lakers, Miners open home season Sunday By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A switch of batteries helped out a little, but the big bat of a Lethbridge Laker newcomer proved to be too much for the Junior Miners last night at Henderson Park. Gary Picone blasted two stand-up doubles, and was thrown out trying to stretch another into a triple as he led the Lakers to an 11-4 triumph over their junior counterparts in a six and one half inning exhibition contest. The Laker bats poked out 10 hits against their own pitchers while the Miners managed only two. Les Ohm started the game for the Lakers, and was relieved after four innings by another newcomer, Brian Hamigami. Jon Petrunia, Allan Korth and Harvie Pocza chored two innings each for the Miners. The Miners should find the going a little easier Sunday when they open their Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League home season against the Calgary Junior Giants. Manager Ted Hill has lined up an impressive set of celebrities for the opener. Member of Parliament Ken Hurlburt will be on hand, as will Larry Smith, Commissioner of baseball for Alberta. Representing the City of Lethbridge will be councillor Cam Barnes. Other VIP's include Mike Tanne, Alberta baseball's Southern Zone director, and the executive of the sponsoring Miners' Library Club- Meanwhile, coach Doug Frier is excited about the league and the Miners' chances in it. "It looks like the league is going to be real close. No ROBERTS RATHOU DRILLING DRILLED PILINGS Phone 527-5311 Medicine Hat team is going to run away with it." The Junior Giants have played three league games to date, losing 17-2 to the Calgary Golden Spikes, then splitting a double header with the Vauxhall Jets. Frier's batting order for the p.m. opener at Henderson Park will see 16-year-old Greg Kveder leading off. He will be followed by Dennis Hatt and Terry Pocza. Greg Hamilton will be the clean-up swinger for the Miners. Also starting for the Miners will be John Seaman, Les Sjogren. Jim McLellan. and Ted Stilson. Jon Petrunia is scheduled to start on the mound in the first game, with Allan Korth opening in the p.m. nightcap. The Miners also announced the signing of two more players in preparation for the home-opener. Dan Hall is an 18-year old utility outfielder and infielder. His quickness and versatility are expected to come in handy this year. Gordon Keith is a 16-year old who will handle similar duties to those of Hall. Like Hall, he came up through the Lethbridge minor baseball organization. The Lakers had good news and bad news for local baseball buffs following last night's exhibition tilt. The good news was that newcomers Gary Picone and Brian Hamagami have inked 1974 contracts. Both played on the All Canadian senior team that represented the country last year in the world baseball championships in Nicaragua. Picone is an outfielder who hails from Trail, British Columbia. This winter, he hit .339 as a junior at Idaho State University in Pocatello. Idaho. Hamagami is a relief pitcher who made over 30 appearances for the same Idaho State team as a freshman this winter. He comes from Christian Lake. B.C. The lone sour note of the evening came when Lakers' second baseman Jim Ross suffered a pulled hamstring while rounding third base early in the game. He is expected to miss the Lakers' season opener in Calgary on Tuesday night. GREG KVEDER JON PETRUNIA S.

Shamrocks earned a split in games with the Lethbridge Miners as they took advantage of eight Miners' errors for a 7-0 win after George Santoni had shut them out 3-0 in the opener. Santoni was sharp for the Miners as he limited the heavy hitting Shamrocks to just two singles in the first game. Gordie Repp rapped a single off Santoni in the third inning while Ken Johnson did the same in the fourth. Miners, meanwhile, got to Calgary loser Johnson for two runs in the first inning as Danny Santoni singled, Mitch Michasiuk doubled and Larry Tratch hit a single. Danny Santoni and Mychasiuk hit singles in the second inning to give the Miners a 3-0 bulge. In the second game the Miners looked as though soccer was their claim to fame as they booted the ball with regularity. The eight errors helped chase starter Dennis Hydachuk in the third inning. Three leagues merge TORONTO (CP) In a move for greater autonomy, Canada's three top Junior A hockey leagues decided Friday to merge into the Canadian Major Junior A league. The three Canada Hockey League, Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series and Quebec Major Junior A league common problems, said Ed Chynoweth, president of the WCHL. The leagues are considering nominations for the new posi- tion of commissioner of the national body and once he is elected, a constitution will be written, said Chynoweth. One of the problems facing the three leagues is the drafting of 18-year-old players by the National Hockey League and the World Hockey Association. "If they keep taking the 18- year-olds, we'll just end up with a glorified midget Chynoweth said. He said the pro leagues had abused their privileges in the recent amateur drafts. "They claimed they would take only exceptional under- age players. There's no way there are 28 exceptional 18- year-olds (the number that were All they're doing is cutting the lifeline of their future." The leagues also decided Friday not to raise the junior eligibility one year to 21 as the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association unanimously voted to do earlier this month in Winnipeg. "It isn't the proper time to raise the age said Chynoweth. "It's just too sud- den and too early. We want to stay under the umbrella of the CAHA but we believe their decision was wrong." Hie leagues will not have an interlocking schedule but will continue to compete in their own regions. There is an agreement to hold another Memorial Cup next year under the previous round- robin format "The site for it hasn't been chosen yet but it will probably be somewhere in Chynoweth said. "The main point, however, is that we have a united front now to deal with the present problems that are plaguing us and future ones that will arise." MAYOR APOLOGIZES LONDON (AP) A London mayor apologized to the people of Rotterdam Thursday for hooliganism by Tottenham Hotspur soccer fans. The fans went wild Wednesday night as Tottenham lost 2-0 to Feyenoord in the EUFA Cup final 5T5 Rotterdam. At least 70 persons were reported arrested and 130 taken to hospital. Hydachuk, and his reliever Rich Mercier, deserved a better fate. Hydachuk, in particular, was a victim of his mates' clumsiness. Shamrocks scored their seven runs on the bats of Bill McLean, Dale Helfrick and Joe Lutz, and the miscues. Helfrick stroked a double and a single while Lutz chipped in with a home run and McLean with two singles. In the meantime, the Miners were able to get just three singles off Dale Helfrick, two coming off the bat of Garth Lamb. Dan Santoni managed the other. Tollestrup on national team Former University of Lethbridge star Phil Tollestrup has been selected as one of 12 members of the Canadian national basketball team, the Canadian Amateur Basketball Association announced Friday. Tollestrup, who hails from Raymond, Alberta, played four years with Brigham Young University in Utah before returning to Canada for a one-year stint at the U of L. He won the league scoring championship and attained All-Canadian status while leading the local cagers to a second- place finish in the Canada West Conference. Tollestrup has just returned from a year of basketball in Spain and will be playing his fourth year with the national team. Also named to the team after a four-day tryout at Carleton University in Ottawa were six Ontario and four British Columbia natives. Ontario representatives are Mike Moser, Robert Stewart, Bob Sharp, James Russell, George Rautins, and Romel Raffin. Alex Devlin, Bill Robinson, Lars Hansen and Ken McKenzie are the British Columbia members. Rounding out the team is 19-year-old Martin Riley of the University of Manitoba. The team begins a cross- country series of exhibition games with the Chinese national team on June 15 in preparation for the world basketball championships in Puerto Rico in July.
