Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, 13, 1972 THE tETHBRIDGB HERALD ft National League's best defenceman may miss series Bobby Orr won't go to Russia if he can't play RECUPERATES FROM KNEE SURGERY Boston Bruins' Bobby Orr, who. underwent left knee surgery last Tues- day, held a news conference at Massachusetts General Hospital Monday in Boston. He announced he doesn't plan to accompany the Canadian team to Russia for a series of games with the Soviet Union's Olympic champ- ions." The doctors have assured me everything Is all right." he said. Orr plans to return to his home in Perry Sound, Ont., for some fishing. (AP Wirepholo) BOSTON (AP) Bobby Orr, generally as the Na- tional Hockey League's most valuable property, said Monday he doesn't plan to accompany the Canadian team to Russia for a series of games with the So- viet Union's Olympic champi- ons. "I don't think I'll go over there if I can't the Bos- ton Bruins' outstanding defence- man said during a news confer- ence at Massachusetts General Hospital. "I'd like to go, but it wouldn't make much Orr said. "I might just as well stay home and work out." Orr, who underwent surgery on his left knee last Tuesday, led the Bruins to their second Stanley Cup championship in three years last month despite the injury. He probably will be discharged from the hospital today and plans to fly to his home in Parry Sound, Ont., Thursday. A fishing enthusiast, Orr said he has rods and reels "all ready" for his return home. SAYS HE 'FEELS GREAT' He spent some uncomfortable days after the surgery, but said he "feels great" now, despite being in a wheelchair. "The doctors have assured me everything is all he said. "I went to Florida for a vacation, feel good and am anx- ious to get going for next sea- son. I may not be able to do too much, but I'll be with Mike Walton at our boys' summer hockey camp." Dr. Carter Howe, who per- formed the surgery on the Bruins' 24-year-old star, said that "spurs on the inside of the knee, pinching a cartilage" were removed in the operation. "We hope we've given Bobby a lot more Dr. Rowe said. "He has been just a won- derful patient. He's so con- cerned with other patients, es- pecially with paralysed people. He's very generous M" time and sits down and talks with other patients." Orr will liave to hobble with splints on Ms leg for the next two or tliree weeks. Then he will wear a brace for the sum- mer, taking special therapy treatment and swimming a lot before donning skates again in September, "He will not be ready for series between Canada and Rus- sia in the two countries in the Dr. Rowe said. "However, the outlook for the 1972-73 sea- son is excellent." High scores are predicted U.S. Open will be tough PEBBLE BEACH, Calif., It's man against the elements this weekend in the 72nd United States Open golf championship. "If the greens bake out hard and the wind blows, I'd take a score of 230 and wait for the one-two-three prize said Art Bell, host pro of the Pebble Beach links where 150 of the world's best golfers tee off Thursday for the game's biggest prize. "This course can be a monster." Pebble Beach's yards snake Uirough statuesque pines with his Denny McLain lives in big league fashion SAVANNAH, Ga. Denny McLain's Birmingham team-mates rumble up to Sa- vannah's decaying baseball park in a bus after killing sev- eral hours at their motel. Denny rolls up in a Cadillac convertible. "How you like my 'learn he says with a grin. McLain has spent the day golfing at the plush Savannagh Inn and Country Club where he is living in a suite with Chuck Dobson, an- other former major leaguer who also has found himself in the bush leagues. A 3L-game winner in Denny has hit the skids as a pitcher. Hit hard early this season with Oakland Athlet- ics, the one-time Detroit Ti- gers wonderboy was shipped to Birmingham, Ala., of the Class AA Southern League to work out his problems. "If I hadn't thought I'd be back in the majors in a few weeks, I'd have says the 23-year-old right-hander. "Anyway, who's going to give, up a job that pays like I'm getting SALARY STILL ST5.080, His salary remains Dobson is simply getting liis arm back in condition in of helping Oakland in its drive for the American League West Division pen- nant. I-'or McLiiin, it's different. His shoulder is inflamed. It Ircgan lo hurt as far back as that golden year of 1963, but h e c a m o worse as Denny struggled through a 10-22 sea- son with Washington Senators in 1971 before being traded to the Athletics. But, despite well-publicized woes that included a three- month suspension in 1970 for alleged association with an underworld figure, McLaia still lives high. HIcLain swallowed his pride long enough to take the back- breaking eight-hour bus jour- ney from Birmingham to Sa- vannah, but he got "lucky" when Ken (Hawk) Harrelson phoned. The colorful former najor league slugger, who quit a job with Cleveland Indians for a career as a professional golfer, lives in Savannah and has McLain and Dobson lined up in big- league style. LIVE IN STYLE While Birmingham un- knowns bed down at the Town Motel, the two former big lea- guers go to the Savannah Inn and live In style.

Dave Creighton picked up the victory fanning eight hitters and allowing six hits while Dale Seaman suffered the loss. Creighfon aided his own cause with a triple and three singles while Kenny Lang ham- mered a home run in a losing cause. In Senior Lillle League play, Shane Hirsche fired one- hitler to pace the Cubs to a 14-1 decision over the Tigers. Ron Thorn took the loss. Jack Price led the Cubs at the plate with a home run and a double while Randy Wat- rnough added a pair of doubles. In Farm League action, the Tigers edged the Bears 10-9 with Kelly Tweeter beating Kevin Wiekeesheim on the mound. In another contest, the Raid- ers dropped the Eagles 17-11 behind winning pitcher Carson Tse. Allan Baker supplied the wood for the Raiders with home run and a triple.

The pills cut his potassium content nearly in "I'm stronger now.. The old zip was coming back the last time I pitched." FIRST 2 DISASTERS His first two Southern League attempts, both against Montgomery Rebels, were disastrous. McLain allowed 16 runs in 11 innings, including six homers. Then came a solid perform- ance, seven innings against Knoxville that saw the de- moted super-star allow only one run and tliree hits. He struck out eight. McLain didn't suspect a re- lapse as he strutted to the mound at Grayson Stadium. A crowd of was in the stands, far above the average 500 drawn in the Southern League. One inning later, however, McLain's world caved, in. A walk, a single, a wild pitch and a double resulted in two runs. Another wild pitch and a sacrifice fly scored an- other. Then, the killing blow three-run de- livered by opposing pitcher Chuck Sprinkle. From that point, Denny's stuff was barely a notch above Little League. Savan- nagh's hitters looked like Murderers' Row and McLain headed for (he showers after seven innings. The toll: 12 runs, 12 hits, four homers, two wild pitches. Birmingham lost 14-0. "My said Birming- ham manager Phil Cavar- retta, "will be exactly what I saw a man pitching with no real velocity, no real con- trol and a man who must be hurting inside."

Several people Mill be brutally hurt by it; but they deserve to be hurt." Meanwhile, there's the busi- ness of playing with the junior Athletics, a team that had lost six straight and 35 of its first 54 games. McLain said he's eager for another mound start, some- thing to heal the wounds from that 14-0 debacle at Savannah. "I'll be he keeps saying.

Seven of the holes play along the ocean. With the wind swirl- ing off the water, it can take as much as a two-iron shot to on the 110-yard par-three seventh. If the wind dies, you are apt to overshoot the green and drop 120 feet into the white-capped waves. The 18th is a 530-yard par-five terror. Hook a ball and you wind up in the bay.

After six straight victories, the Lakers stopped and started to go in the other direction. They have dropped their last three decisions by 14-4, 7-1 and 7-0 scores, due to a lack- of hitting. According to manager, Doug Frier, the Lakers went into a little slump, but are hungry for another victory. They'll get their chance to- night as they host the Calgary Jimmies, who shut them out 7-0 in their first meeting. Action will get under way 8 p.m. at the Henderson ball park tonight.
