But right now Ron Taj lor, manager of the Alberta Major Baseball League Lak- ers, would like to see clear skies and warm weather. Taylor, it can be said, is itching to get to the top of the Alberta League stand- ings and the weatherman is in his way. Tonight's LaKcr B'ockcr game has been cancelled due to wet grounds. A double- header is scheduled for Sun- day. Game times are ten- ativcly set for 1 and 5 p.m. but are subject to change. The locals would like nothing better than to sweep two games from their Ed- monton counterparts. Should that happen Taylor and his second year club would be 4-1 on the season. Taylor didn't say it Friday night at an optional workout, but he must be thinking it, "we could be 3-0 and looking to go 5-0." Lakers, who edg- ed Calgary Jimmies 8-7 in Calgary Thursday, let a 7-3 lead slip away from them last weekend in Red Deer. Taylor uon't let that happen again if he can at all stop it. Who will get the nod to start the Lakers' weekend set? Taylor isn't sure. One thing is almost certain, Paul Sullivan will get a well- deserved rest tonight and to- moirow. Sullivan went the full eight innings against the Jimmies and could quite feasibly meet the Calgary cmb again this coming Thursday when they pay a visit to Henderson. Taylor has Randy Max- well, Jerry Veres, and Al Ferchuk ready to go this weekend as well as import Mike Davey and three team- mates from Gonzaga Uni- versity arrived on the scene Friday night. A welcome sight Davey were infielders Lenn Sakata and Tom Foster along with catcher Mike Whiteaker. All four have just completed their collegiate baseball season and are in playoff shape. Davey could get the nod in one of the weskend games. The hard throwing, left- hander was 9-1 over the year for the Gonzaga club and av- erages better than a strike- out per inning pitched. It may not have been 90 above when the Gonzaga foursome left for Lathbridge but "it was a lot warmer" said Davey Friday night as the Washington players were greeted by the gale that was blowing last evening Davey also wondered ff ft might snow Friday night. Should Taylor see fit to use his latest players he will have a tough decision to make. The club, while shaky in places, has looked good in winning two of its first three starts. Taylor's job, as of to- day, is not an enviable one. Sakata is a hustling short- stop and compliments Foster at second base. The two have been the keystone combina- tion for two seasons at Gon- zaga as well as Community College in Treasure Valley, Wash. Both possess great speed and hit over .300 this past year, which will blend them right into Taylor's way of thinking. Runs win ball games and runs are the re- sult of hits in most instances. Whiteaker could be the ao in the hole for the Lakers. At 6'4" and 200 pounds he has suprisirig speed for a big man and hits with power. But the one fact that up until now was not known, may pitch some. He has a good strong arm and wants to play. Things, regarding the Lethbridge Lakers, are fall- ing nicely into place. And speaking of place, Taylor would like to be fa first place. It may come this weekend. New for the Bruins Andre Savard, left, is welcomed Friday to the Boston Bruins by joking teammates Phil Esposito, who is recover- ing from a knee operation, and Bobby Orr, right. In back- ground is assistant trainer John "Frosty" Foristall. Savard, 20, was a high-scoring centre on the Quebec Ramparts fand the Bruins' first choice in the recent junior amateur draft. The signing of Savard was announced Friday.
