Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta West race Ten-straight for Brewers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The American League's West Division race is so tight, the New York subway at rush hour would be spacious by com- parison. Chicago White Sox are still in front, but just barely after dropping 11 of their last 16 games, the latest a 9-2 thump- ing at the hands of California Angels Monday night. That victory left the Angels in Jimmy Ellis kayoed NEW YORK (AP) Shaver vaulted into the middle of the heavyweight picture by flooring Jimmy Ellis with a thundering right uppercut and knocking him out in the first round of a scheduled 12-round fight Monday night at Madison Square Garden. The end came at of the round as Ellis gamely struggled to his feet but was unable to beat the count of 10 by referee Harold Valan. Shaver's sensational victory came moments after he was in trouble and appeared on the verge of being knocked down himself. At about the two-minute mark, Ellis jotled Shaver with a short chopping right to the jaw that sent him rubber-legged into the ropes. CLOSER TO TITLE Ellis missed with a right, but landed two lefts to the face and Shaver definitely was in trouble. Shaver spun away into the middle of the ring and sud- denly Shaver unleashed the right uppercut that dropped Ellis flat on his back and put Shaver into the race for a shot a t heavyweight champion George Foreman. Shaver weighed 206V4 for the biggest fight of his four-year career. Shaver winning for the 31st straight time now has 44 knock- outs mostly over unknowns, in 45 pro victories against two losses. Ellis, who once was the World Boxing Association heavyweight champion, was losing for the eighth time against 38 victories. Ellis, from Louisville, Ky., weighed 199% and looked in top shape at the age of 33. fifth games behind the White Sox. Squeezed be- tween those two are Minnesota Twins' Kansas City Royals, both only a half-game behind, and Oakland A's one game back. In Monday's other league games, Oakland slugged Kansas City 9-5, Milwaukee Brewers ripped Boston Red Sox 8-3, De- troit Tigers downed Cleveland Indians 5-1 and Texas Rangers defeated Minnesota 7-4. The Brewers, who now have won 10 in a row, are at home for a doubleheader with Boston tonight while Detroit visits Cleveland, Baltimore is in New York, Oakland at Kansas City, Texas at Minnesota and Califor- nia at Chicago. "I don't care what place we're said Angels' man- ager Bobby Winkles. "What counts is how far we're out of first place." The Angels stung Chicago for four runs in the fourth inning, two of them on Alan Galla- gher's triple. They added five more in the fifth, three of them on two bases-loaded walks and a wild pitch by reliever Jim Geddes. That was enough to tag the White Sox with their fourth straight loss. Kansas City pitchers surren- dered nine bases on balls and A's Joe Rudi cracked two dou- bles that drove in four runs. Jim Mason his first major league home run and Dave Nelson scored three runs, helping Texas past Minnesota. Milwaukee's sizzling streak, longest in the majors this sea- son, was helped by George Scott with a pair of homers. The Brewers won for the 15th time in the last 16 games and opened a lead over Baltimore Orioles in the AL East. Three of the Milwaukee runs came on a trio of bases-loaded walks issued by rookie Mike Carman in the seventh inning. Detroit supported Jim Perry's four hit pitching with homers by Dick Sharon, Bill Freehan and Aurelio Rodriguez to defeat Cleveland. Tutsday, Junt 19, 1973 THI LETHBRIDOE HIRAIO 7 Dodgers rolling BUGS always defeat Cubs Aaron closing in Henry Aaron, right, of the Atlanta Braves, has 691 lifetime tptal of 714 runs. Babe Ruth is shown at home runs in his career total as he closes in on Babe Ruth's left in 1932, Aaron is shown 40 yeors later.____________- Football meeting The annual general meeting of the Lethbridge Minor Foot- ball League is slated for Wed- nesday evening. Set for a start, the meet- ing will be held at 719 22nd Street North. Election of officers is high on the agenda as are plans for the coming season. Fat pitches could prove costly Kuhn unhappy with stories NEW YORK (AP) "I can't believe the commissioner could take this seriously." said pitcher Andy Messersmith of Los Angeles Dodgers. "It's all a big joke. I don't remember exactly what I was said Phil Hennigan, pitcher for New York Mets. "But you know how ballplay- ers are. We horse around in the clubhouse and that's the way it was. Yeah, yeah, I said it; but it was in a joking way." The trouble is, commissioner Bowie Kuhn wasn't laughing. In response to statements by several pitchers who said they would throw a soft pitch to help Aaron achieve his record-break- ing 715th home run, Kuhn came down hard. Kuhn warned that "suspen- sion will follow where anyone intentionally fails to give his best efforts." "I am greatly he said, "by press stories quoting some of our pitchers as saying or implying that they would be willing to groove a pitch to Henry Aaron to help him in his pursuit of the record for total home runs." "While I recognize the possi- bility of misquotation, I must remind you that any such con- duct would violate the require- ments of major league Rule 21 that every player must give his best efforts toward the winning of any baseball game in which he is involved. To do otherwise Three veterans leave Eskimos EDMONTON (CP) Edmon- ton Eskimos today announced the retirements of Howie Schumm, Tim Kelly and Chip Kell, three veterans on the Western Football Conference club. Schumm, a 33-year-old line- backer, came out of retirement last season to help out when in- juries decimated the Esks. The 13-year veteran was a member of the 1960 squad, the last Ed- monton team to play in the Grey Cup. He plans to spend his time on a dairy farm in suburban Spruce Grove. will result in a long-term sus- pension." St. Louis pitcher Reggie Cleveland said: "The way he says it, whoever gives up that 715th is suspended for life I hope I'm not un- lucky enough to give up that homer Messersmith had said "I'll lay it right and he didn't deny it, adding that he wasn't being serious. Hennigan also didn't disclaim his earlier statements. "Everyone is in tins game for money. If it's me, I'll tell him what's coming. It will be a half- speed fastball down the middle. It will be like batting practice, I'd be a fool not to do he had said. He sang the same tune Mon- day night, only in a different key. "I'm not going to retract that other he said in Philadelphia. "I said it. but Kuhn should know how ballplay- ers joke." Tug McGraw, a Met team- mate, had agreed that being Aaron's 715th victim could be fi- nancially rewarding. Derek didn't even please his lawyer VANCOUVER (CP) With his mournful basset-hound face and basic black suit, Boston lawyer Bob Woolf resembles a prosperous Presbyterian preacher. But inside that cool Yankee exterior beats the heart of a wrestler. In't even please his lawyer Woolf says he's a square shooter CP) With Woolf is a player's agent. But the man is different from ment from Philadelphia Blaz- 300 athletes et-hound face perhaps the most successful in the popular concept of the ers of the WHA before rejoin- sport. McGraw stuck by his state- ment and then agreed with Kuhn's reaction. "I didn't feel I was mis- McGraw said. "I still say that I would give Aaron my best stuff and hope like hell he hits it out. I'm not going to lay it in there but if he does get it off me, more power to him. I don't tliink the commis- sioner would object to that. "But I think the commis- sioner is McGraw said. "It's his job to maintain re- spect for the game. When play- ers say things that put the game in a bad light, whether they mean it or not. he should take a strong stand." "What does Aaron have, 680 homers? He didn't need any fa- vors to get there and I'm sure he doesn't need any favors now." And Aaron doesn't think he'll get any. The Atlanta slugger, who has belted 691 home runs, expects just the opposite. "I've got 23 more to go and pitchers are being extra careful even right he said. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates are wal- lowing in the unaccustomed depths of fifth place in the Na- tional League East, but two other facts are still right up there with death and taxes in the ranks of sure things: the Pi- rates will beat Fergie Jenkins and Dock Ellis will beat Chi- cago Cubs. Monday night's 3-1 Pittsburgh victory gave Ellis a lifetime 11- 2 mark against the Cubs while Jenkins, of Chatham, Ont, is 9- 21 against the Pirates and has dropped eight in a row since he last beat them two years ago. just one of those things and it happens even though the personnel of the other team said Chicago man- ager Whitey Lockman. "I guess it's seme sort of mental thing. "But in Fergie's case, you have to figure the other team bears down more because it's him." Elsewhere, Los Angeles Dodg- ers trounced Atlanta Braves 13- 3. St. Louis Cardinals edged Montreal Expos 1-0 in a rain- shortened, five-inning contest, and Philadelphia Phillies out- slugged New York Mets 9-6. The Cubs are in Pittsburgh for a pair of games today while i New York is at Philadelphia, [Montreal at St. Louis, Houston in San Diego, Atlanta at Los I Angeles and Cincinnati at San I Francisco in other contests, all under the lights. HOMERS SCUTTLE FERGIE The Pirates and Cubs were tied 1-1 in the sixth inning when Richie Hcbner and Bob Rob- ertson tagged Jenkins for con- secutive home runs. Meanwhile, Ellis allowed a third-inning run and retired the last 18 Cub batters. The Mets, who went to Phila- delphia with a five-game win- ning streak, couldn't stop Ken Brett, who posted his third straight pitching victory and has homered in each of his last three starts. Brett survived a three-run homer by New York's Rusty Etaub in the first inning and drove in two runs with his homer and a sacrifice fly while Mike Schmidt knocked in three runs with a double and homer. Bill Russell drove in five runs with four singles, leading a 17- hit attack that powered the Dodgers to their rout of the Braves and increased their lead in the West Division to a full gams over San Francisco Gi- ants. Rookie Mike Tyson slammed his first major league homer, leading Rick Wise and the Car- dinals over the Expos. Tyson, hitting just .231 at game time, belted a Balor Moore pitch over the left field wall in the second inning. All-star voters like Mr. Bench NEW YORK (AP) Catcher Johnny Bench of Cincinnati Reds continues to lead the Na- tional League in votes as all-star fan balloting passed its second week Monday. He has been named on of the first ballots re- turned by the fans for the July 24 baseball contest in Kansas City against all-stars from the American League. The only change among the leaders from last week's re- turns was in the outfield, where Billy Williams of Chicago Cubs vaulted to second place behind Pete Rose of the Reds. Williams, fourth last week, replaced Bobby Bonos of San Francisco Giants who, despite a. productive week at the plate, fell from second to fourth, just 3.000 votes behind Cesar Cedeuo of Houston Astros. Joe Morgan, a third member of the Reds, continued to hold a comfortable lead at second base. AARON STILL LEADS The rest of the infield leaders consisted of Hank Aaron of At- lanta Braves at first base, Ron Santo of the Cubs at third and Chris Speier of the Giants at shortstop. Bench's closest competition for the starting catching berth is Manny Sanguillen of Pitts- burgh Pirates, who has re- ceived votes even though he has played mostly the out- field this year. Aaron leads Willie Stargell of the Pirates to among first basemen, although they have been playing the out- field this season. The balloting ends July 8 and the starting teams will be an- nounced July 16-17. Woolf is a player's agent, perhaps the most successful in the world, and much of his time is spent grappling with general managers and owners of professional sports franchises sseking lucrative contracts for his clients.

But the man is different from the popular concept of the sports agent as one concerned only with money, often at the expense of the sport. Wcolf sees the situation as a two-way street, in which the player has an obligation to the team, as well as the team to the player. Woplf's most celebrated cli- ent is Derek Sanderson, who jumped to the World Hockey Association from the then-Stan- Ie5'-Cup champion Boston Bru- ins of the National Hockey League, spent much of the" first part of the year inactive, then jumped back to the Bruins. Sanderson won a large settle- ment from Philadelphia Blaz- ers of the WHA before rejoin- ing the Boston Club, but Woolf suggests he was Isss than happy with the peregrinating Bruin. I realized that Derek wasn't doing the job for Phila- delphia, I was the first to say so." Woolf said in a Vancouver interview. get the very best deal I can for my clients, but 1 insist they give the very best in re- turn. In Derek's case, this just wasn't so. I was disappointed." He said the settlement San- derson received from the Blaz- ers wasn't as much as publi- cized.

"I believe in fully honoring a he said. "If some guy I represent comes up to me and says ha wants to renegoti- ate a contract after one year of a three-year contract because he had a good season, I won't do it. "After all, I've never heard of anyone going to a team owner after a bad season and saying, 'I'm giving you back from last year, because I didn't play very well." "I have given up clients be- cause they have wanted to cheat on a contract, or take ad- vantags of a situation. There is a moral obligation to the itself, and I insist that clients fulfil it. Any other view is both dishonest and shortsighted." The Boston lawyer believes sports contracts are somewhat inflated but hastens to add that ha has an obligation to get his clients as much money as pos- sible, given the stafe of the player market. In his new. the fan ultimate- ly pays the freight, and ticket prices can't go much higher. "Let's be realistic. After all, no one is going to pay for a ticket to a sports event." But Woolf partially blames owners. "Take baseball, for example. Tom Yawkey. the owner of Boston Red Sox, gives Carl Yastrzemski a contract for a year and gives it lots of publicity about how much he's paying his man because he's so valuable to the team. 'Well, some owner sees this and then pays his player 000 with the publicity being tTiat this player is worth more to his team than Yastrzemski is to the Bed Sox.'1 Dollar for dollar, CIL wants you to get the whitest white paint money can buy.
