Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDCE HERAID Wodneldoy, June 14, 1972 SULLY SAYS L -By Sullivan S T HOPE I NEVER LIVE to see the day Gordic Howe knocks hockey or Mickey Mantle knocks baseball. I have had my fill of the Denny McLains and Jim Boutons. Aiid now I have had my fill Casey Tibbs and I have never seen him perform or even have met him. It's his altitude that chews at my innards. Bouton, after what baseball talents he had were gone, took to knocking the game in a book called Ball Four. The book was a best-seller. Athletic trash with a cover for my money, but never the less, a best-seller. Now, McLain, who can't even get them out in the minors, says he has a book which will hurt a lot of people. He says, and I quote "I'm writing a he said. "It will tell all and I mean all. Several people will be hurt by it; hut they deserve to be hurt." But what got me started on this column was Casey Tibbs. I picked up a showbeat column, of all things, and here was this story about the illustrious Mr. Tibbs. In his day, from what I can gather, he was one the best in the world. He apparently still spends his time between motion pictures and rodeos. More time, the story points out, on the movie trail than on the cattle trail. Here is Tibbs, with rodeo honors too numerous to mention, and he can't even come across clearly enough to a writer whether rodeo is show business or sports. His idea of a good rodeo performer is Freckles Brown who is in his 50s. He's the George Blanda or Hoyt Wilhelm rodeoing. He tells the writer about the great performers of the sport, but all are from years gone by. Rodeo, today, doesn't do much for Tibbs and it goes without saying he is doing very little for the sport that gave him nearly everything he has. Tibbs points out that there are schools for poten- tial rodeo performers. He's right, rodeoing is getting to be big intercollegiate sport. Some schools in the west and southwest give scholarships to rodeo per- formers. "It's taking the fun out of states Tibbs, "and you're getting guys on the circuit now who are very good mechanically, but they aren't real cowboys put 'em on a ranch and they'd leave the gate open." I never saw Casey Tibbs perform. Maybe I missed something, I'll never, in all likelihood, know for sure. I do know one thing, I have seen Marvin Joyce, Larry Mahan and Shawn Davis. These, just to name three, are the so-called, mechanical cowboys Tibbs referred to. If the rodeo performers of old were that much better than these three I can't imagine how good they really were. Minor baseball Doug Mentanko gave up only four liils and led the Roy- als to a 9-1 victory over the Canucks in Lakeside Little League play Tuesday night- Robert Ogden suffered the loss. Rick Cicon paced the Royals with a double and two singles while Owen Hayward added three singles. At Norerest, the Pirates dumped the Cubs 8-5 behind Greg Fender's three-hit pitch- ing. Ken Burla suffered the loss being tagged for eight hits. Mark Tokariuk and Fender led the Pirates at the plate with a pair o! singles each wliile Burla managed two sin- gles in a losing cause. In Senior Little League ac- tion, the Lions edged the Ath- letics 14-11. Larry Lennox defeated Dale Netting on the mound. Brian Thoriauis paced the Lions with three singles while Barrel Laidiaw aided with two singles. Netting managed a home run and a pair of singles for the losers. The Astros bested the Braves 10 7 in a Norerest extra-inning marathon as Michael Coghlin was the winner. The loss went to Merlin B mining. Coghlin, who won In relief, stroked three singles for the winners wWIe Walter Dyck chipped In wilh two. David Za rooben managed two singles for the Braves. In a rain shortened Lakeside encounter four White Sox pitch ers couldn't stop the Red Sox as the Red Sox won 11-7. Dennis Kaupp aided winning pitcher Ross Malheson with two doubles and a single whili Jim Woolf added a double am two singles. Neal Povey and Jim Kimmitt each stroked a double and single for the White Sox. In Norerest Minor Leagui, action the Wolves came out on the long end of a 19-15 scon with the Cougars.

The Lakers, who after a great start to their first year in the league have lost four straight, had the Jimmies on the hook for six innings but let thorn got away as the Jimmies scored nine limes in the last three innings for a 12-7 victory. Lakers will gel another chance to shake their current tails pin when they visit Cal- gary tonight for an eight o'clock encounter. Neither club were that Im- pressive over the full nine inn- ings.

Bobby Byrnes, whose identity was kept secret until just before the hearing started, made the comments in his appearance be- fore the House of Representa- tives select committee on crime. That committee cur- rently is investigating alleged Mafia Infiltration into organized sports. Flanked by four bodyguards, Byrnes told the committee that he and liis friends had doped horses, swindled bettors out of their money and called in mus- cle on independent bookmakers who wouldn't pay off their fixed races. Byrnes declined to discuss some items in detail, explaining he was to be a witness in a Rhode Island trial involving horse-racing fixes. Byrnes said he is not a mem- ber of organized crime but that his group always informed bookies with connections to or- ganized crime of the fixer! races out of "respect." In return, he said, he some- times received phone calls from "as far away as Miami" telling him to bel on certain races which other groups had fixed. Byrnes said his group never bet its own money. When first starting out, he said, he and his friends would make their bets with other peoples' money. Once they had established they knew what Ihey were doing, Byrnes said, organized crime started funding them. Byrnes said he had fixed races at Suffolk Downs, Mass-; Lincoln Downviand Narragan- sett, R.I.; Pocono Downs, Pa.; Dover Downs, Del.; Bowie and Pimlico, Maryland; Tropical Park and Hialeah, Florida; Aq- ueduct, N.Y.; Scarborough, Maine; Garden State, N.J.; Churchill Downs, Ky.; Shenen- doah, W.Va.; River Downs, Ohio, and Fairmont Park, near St. Louis. He said Hialeah was the least-favored track because "you're dealing with a group of people that money's not going to in it for the Byrnes said he fixed races for about three years. The first few, he said, were fixed by bribing jockeys and trainers, and the later ones were fixed by d nig- ging the horses. Byrnes told the commitlee there were certain bookmakers they could not "take" and cer- tain tracks they were told to avoid. He said he was convinced after his dealings with organ- ized crime that it "is another nation all to itself." Race results EDMONTON (CP) Norrhlanrfs Park race result Tuesday.

In another contest, Silver- wood Dairies edged Lethbridge Glass 3-2 with Dave Speelman beating Ross Jacohson on the mound. Lakers were guilty of eight niscues while the Jimmies ticked the hall around five imcs. But It was mental errors thai nay have led to the eventual downfall of the Lakers. Lakers got out of the gate in a hurry as (hey got to Homme or two runs in each of the first wo innings for a lead. The Jimmies got to Taylor, who las a 3-1 record, for five sin- ;lcs' in the third inning for hree runs and were right back n the ball game- It looked as though tilings vould continue to run smooth- y for the Lakers as they jam- ned the bases with only one out in the fourth. Wayno Commodore, who today must be wondering what he has to do to get a run-batted-in, back- ed Calgary centrefielder Doug Simon to the wall for what look- ed like a certain sacrifice and still leaving the Lakers with runners at second and third. Greg Hamilton, a rookie with he locals, certain there were .wo away bolted for home on :he hit and was lucky only to get back to third when the ball ivas caught. Marty Maxwell grounded out to end the inning leaving the Lakers with their slim one-run lead. Again in the sixth the Lakers brought the Henderson Lake gathering to the edges of their seats as they loaded the bases with one out. This time Lynn ame on to fan Commodore and ;et Maxwell on a grounder to third. It was nil Jimmies after the sixth as they got two in the seventh on two hits and two Lethbridge errors. They picked up two more on three Lakers' errors in the eighth and per- formed .the coup-de-grace with five more in Ihe ninth on four hits and one error. Jimmies batted through the order against a very tired Dennis King. THREE ERUOnS Jimmies were guilty of three errors in the ninth as the Lakers plated three runs but the damage had been done. Catcher lion Johnston paced the 18-hit Calgary attack with a double and three singles in six trips to the plate. John Elick added three singles while John Vandenberg chipped in with a double and a single. Howie Heggedal was three for five for the Lakers with three singles. Hob Boy, before being ejected in Ihe seventh, had two singles. Hamilton pounded out a triple while King and Bob Turner managed doubles. Boy got an early shower after an altercation with Jon- ston at third base. Coach John Vaselenak made It clear Tuesday that there is no panic button being pushed. "We'll be alright, don't you he said. "This is a young ball club and we're bound to make mis- he added. Manager Doug Frier, while not expressing the optimism of Vaselenak, pointed out that the club seemed to be out of Its hitting slump. "If we can just cut down on our errors, especially the men- tal ones, we'll do just Frier stated. EXTRA coach John Eh'ck of the Jim- mies had two altercations with umpire George Yoshinaka The second time he came nose to nose with Yoshinaka Eh'ck made his point by push- ing the umpire on the shoulder He was around to finish the game The Lakers owe the Lethbridge fans a solid per- formance after Tuesday night Heggedal played right field Tuesday as Wayne Com- modore has a sore arm The locals may have lost the services of shortstop Larry Ed- wards as he suffered a pinched nerve in his right shoulder in the first inning Rumor has it that a left-hander from Cali- fornia is due in Lethbridge in the next day or so Good news, considering Rod Taylor has to carry the portside load himself.
