Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THI IETHBRIDGE HERAID Joni 7, 1973 SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan TS no secret that the Lethbridge Sugar Kings of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are not the most sta- ble franchise in the province. The proposed sale of the club failed to materialize this past weekend in Calgary. Exactly what is going on with the club is beyond me. Your guess, and that's about all one has, is as good as mine. Two groups are interested in the team. One group is headed by Stan Maxwell, Gord Hoselton, Herb Chris- tie, Harry Cox and a num- Bob Bartlett, Director of Community Services for Leth- bridge, prepared a brief for City Council this past Monday and hit the nail right on the head. Bartlett's brief was for council's attention regarding Junior Tier one and two hock- ey franchises for the city of Lethbridge. I feel the best way to let you know of Bartlett's con- cern is to quote from his brief. "It is evident that the future development of the Sports- plex in the City of Lethbridge has created a great interest in the future development of Junior ''A" hockey in the City of Lethbridge. It is my candid opinion that there is nothing negative in this in- terest, provided the City is willing to take a firm stand ber of others. All are local sportsmen. A second group is also seeking to purchase the club. Abe Berday, of Pro-Am Sports, the parent body of the Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League, was in attendance at the meetings. Also con- nected with Pro-Am is Scotty Munro. Despite the fact the league tabled the sale of the team after Sugar King officials asked for more time, rumors persist that the club is already owned by Pro-Am Sports. in the way that such hockey will be developed in our city. Our Directorate does not wish to inhibit the private en- terprise system. However, I feel the City does have a dir- ect responsibility to ensure that our youth: a) Have the best opportun- ity to participate in our local community at all levels. b) That opportunity is not limited by reason of desire to continue education, career goals, or other healthy social interests." continues Bart- lett, "I feel the City has a direct responsibility in ensur- ing that owners and promot- ers of such hockey franchises do give strong consideration to the youth of our commun- ity, as well as the potential profits to be gained from de- veloping hockey franchises." Bartlett went on to point out he felt he could expand on his philosophy to some ex- tent. But he is certain City Council is well aware of the intent of this discussion. "To best meet the desired goals for the development of junior hockey and local in- volvement, I would strongly recommend that the City of Lethbridge adopt a resolution to the effect that "priority for the development of jun- ior "A" hockey and accom- anying ice arrangements be given to: a) Locally owned and op- erated franchises. b) Organizations willi n g and able to work co-opera- tively with the Minor Hockey Associations in the city. c) Organizations who have a basic philosophy of consid- ering our youth as important individuals rather than as commodities to be bought and sold for profit." Bartlett makes it clear that the Community Services Di- rectorate "would support any local group attempting to obtain franchises with the above goal in mind." In February of 1975 we will have a brand spanking new arena. I would hate to see local interests over-looked. I have to say Bartlett said it like it is.

Elsewhere in the league, Cali- fornia Angels downed Detroit Tigers 7-4, Boston Red Sox edged Kansas City Royals' 5A on Bob Montgomery's second home run of the game in the 10th inning and Oakland Athlet- ics battered Milwaukee Brewers ll-l. THIRD VICTIM If it's any consolation to Har- ris, he's not the only one Mi- chael has victimized. He joined the Yankees in 1968 and nailed Detroit's Tom Matchick that year, Minnesota's Zoilo Ver- salles in 1969 and Oakland's Joe Keough and California's Jarvis Tatum in 1970, which was a very good year. With the Yankees leading 3-0, the Rangers loaded the bases on singles by Rich Billings and Harris and an error. With one out, Toby Harrah hit a sacrifice fly and Michael took the throw from the outfield as Harris re- mained on second. Michael faked a toss to pitcher Steve Kline and wan- dered toward second base, just In time to meet Harris, who had stepped off the bag to peer at third base coach Chuck Hiller for a sign. It was the Yanks' fourth con- secutive victory and lifted them within one half game of Detroit in the AL East. Sandy Alomar keyed a pair of two run rallies with a single in the first inning and a triple in the second while Bill Singer and Dave Sells pitched the Angels to a 7-4 victory over the Tigers and Joe Coleman. Brooks Robinson and Earl Williams each homered and combined to drive in six runs as Baltimore's revived long-ball attack powered the Orioles over the slumping White Sox. The loss was the fifth straight for the Sox. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS That's quite a leadoff hitter San Francisco Giants home runs, 60 runs scored and a .320 batting average. You'd think that Bobby Bonds would bat third or fifth in the order with that kind of power. So does Bobby Bonds. "I don't want to lead off, but I will if that's what everyone said Bonds after pacing the Giants to a 9-7 decision over Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday night. Bonds drilled four hits, in- cluding a leadoff homer in the first inning, drove in two runs and scored four times, to lead the Giants to their seventh straight National League vic- tory. ASKED MANAGER I've asked Manager Charlie Fox about hitting somewhere else, but he doesn't want me to and my team-mates don't want me said Bonds. "I'd like to drive in more runs. A lot of times I come to the plate with two outs and a long fly does nothing; it's not even a sacri- fice fly." In other National League games, Chicago Cubs defeated Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4, At- lanta Braves beat Montreal Expos 5-3, Houston Astros nipped Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 and St. Louis Cardinals scored a 6-3 decision over San Diego Padres. Bonds triggered a three-run rally for the Giants in the sec- ond inning with a two-out single. He did the same tning with one out in the sixth, when the Giants scored three more, and singled and came around with another run in the seventh. Jose Cardenal drove in three runs with a two-run homer and sacrifice fly in Chicago's vic- tory over Los Angeles. Dodger ace Don Sutton lost to the Cubs for the 15th time in 18 career decisions. AKER HELPS OUT Sutton departed after four straight singles during a four- run Chicago sixth. The winner was Burt Hooton, 6-3, who needed ninth inning relief help from Jack Aker after giving up a homer to Willie Davis in a three-run Dodger ninth. The save was Aker's 10th of the sea- Danny Frisella combined on a four-hitter to lead Atlanta past Montreal. Johnson's two-run shot in the eighth snapped a 3-3 tie for the winning runs. Bob Watson's infield single in the 10th inning gave Houston its victory over Philadelphia. Pinch-hitter Jimmy Stewart triggered the Astros' winning rally with a walk off relief pitcher Barry Lersch. After Jimmy Wynn struck out, Roger Metzger singled Stewart to third. Jesus Alou walked to toad the bases before Watson singled home Stewart with the winning run. Ted Simmons' third hit, a three-run homer, climaxed a five-run outburst in the fifth in- ning and red-hot St. Louis went on to beat San Diego behind Bob Gibson's five-hitter. The Cardinals won their fifth straight game and 16th in the last 18. Gibson won his fourth game against six losses while loser Clay Kirby's record dropped to 2-6. Leavitt wins on two-hitter Darrell Leavitt hurled a two- hit ball for seven innings and led the Pincher Creek Alberta Hotel Orphans to a 6-4 victory over the Lethbridge Hotel North Stars in the second game of a scheduled double head- er in Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League action Wednesday night. Leavitt earned the win firing the third strike past seven bat- ters while Ron Zasadny suffer- ed the loss. Terry Lyon and Clare Mor- wood blasted back to baak fourth inning homers for the Orphans while Bruce McKen- zie added three singles. Mitch Mvchasiuk poked a tri- ple and Jim Tratch a single for the lone North Star's hits. Meanwhile in the first game of the evening, wining pitcher Tom Yip gave up six hits and paced the Lethbridge Generals to a 9-3 verdict over the Labor Club Athletics. Starter George Jackci was tagged with the loss after being relieved by Ed Carpenter in the fourth inning. Doug Nakama poked three singles and Dan Christie a tri- ple and a single to lead the winners while Wally Kruchky- wich and Rod Morrice added a oah- of singles. Rick Dietzen hammered a home run and Bob Setoguichi two singles in a losing cause. In tonight's action.
