Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE lEIHBRlDGE HERAID Tueldoy, Jun> .13, 197J SULLY SAYS Mets look like ivorst team in baseball Monday n H -By Pat Sullivan jj WHAT was once Known as the Alberta Junior Hockey League lias now become the Southern Alberta Junior League with the withdrawal ot both Edmon- ton teams. Edmonton Movers and Maple Leals, bolh found- in" members the 10-year old league, have asked for a leave of absence for one year. The Movers were granted one season away from the league while the Leafs' request was turned down. U is not to say that the Leafs will play in the league this coming whiter but it is hopeful, by league officials, that at least one team can be salvaged from our capital city. At. present there are five teams in the league, our own Sugar Kings, Calgary Canucks, Drumheller Falcons and Reel Deer Rustlers all back from last year, and the newly formed Crowsnest Pass Red Devils. Calgary Mount Royal College Cougars were forced to leave the league as they are now members of the Alberta College League. What will losing the Edmonton clubs do to the rest of Ihe league? It will definitely hurt. We will see more of the other four teams than in the past and you know what they say about familiarity breeding con- tempt, I would like to see an Edmonton team in tlie league. They have been a major part of the 10-year success of the Alberta Junior League. The Movers, in the late 60's, represented our province in the Al- bcrta-BC finals. The Alberta Junior lias survived despite playing in the shadow of the Western Canada Hockey League and its two provincial powers, the Calgary Centennials and Edmonton Oil Kings. the Alberta Junior League has reached full maturity what with two west- ern Canada championships and a dominion crown in the past two years. I'm afraid of what losing the Edmonton franchises will do to the league, and I am in full agreement with league president Jim Scoular. He said over the weekend that every effort should be made to keep a team alive in Edmonton. If there is no club from Edmonton, the league will lose its provincial identity and will become a glorified southern league. I would be remiss if I did not extend a tip of the hat to Barb Home and Lloyd Kanewischer. Miss Home chalked up her fourth straight city women's golf championship over the weekend while Kanewis- cher renewed my belief that he could be the one to beat for the Henderson Lake men's championship, currenty under way, after copping top spot in the annual Elks tourney.

The play looked good except for one thing. Garrett forgot to catch the ball- Aaron and Jackson both scored, tying the game, and Evans wound up on third base. Next, rookie Dusly Baker lofted a fly ball to centre and Tornmie Agee angled over for it as Lvans tagged up, getting ready to try and score.

Third base ump Nick Co- losi made it a little worse by telling Mets' coach Eddie Yost lhat Evans had left the base too soon. That means if Agee had caught the ball and the Mets ap- pealed at third base, Colosi would have called the runner out. That's called the final turn of the knife and is a classic exam- ple oE how the oldtime Mets used to lose.
