Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, June LETHBRIDGt Two newcomers Laker president Reno Lizzi is flanked by Kent Petersen, left, and Jim Dompier Story this year has been 'seven Lakers make move to fill in some gaps By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer Reno Lizzi, president of the Lethbridge Lakers, is hopeful two young Idaho baseball players will help to offset what so far has been a case of "seven disasters" in the Alberta Major Baseball League. Lakers, currently 1-5 in the seven-team league, today announced the signing of 20-year- old Kent Petersen and 19-year-old Jim Dompier both of Lewiston, Idaho. "We have had what can only be described as seven disasters thus said Lizzi. "We're hoping Petersen and Dompier will help offset our troubles." Lakers, pennant winners in the league in 1973, have been hit with injuries, and hit hard. Jim Ross, a very promising second baseman pulled a hamstring and will be out for the year in all likelihood. He has also answered a call from. the U.S. Army. Brian Hamagami has a fractured ankle and will miss four weeks at least. Two more pitchers, playing-coach Paul Sullivan and Rod Taylor are also nursing hurts. Sullivan is recovering from tendonitis while Taylor had to be hospitalized with an infection after a run in with some farm animals. Add to these Bryan Maxwell's deciding not to play this year, Marty Maxwell's expected jump to the B.C. team and Tim Negrello's injured hand and one can see what Lizzi means. But, none of the Laker executive is down in the dumps, so to speak, in particular Sullivan. He has seen all but two clubs in the league this year and feels the Lakers will be there when it counts. With all the hurts and problems the Lakers have overcome as well as the weather during training camp, the club is still very much in the thick of things. Only Calgary Giants and Jim- mies are really ahead of the locals. In the meantime, Petersen and Dompier figure to help the club immensely. Petersen. a shortstop, throws right, bats right and this past college season played with Boise State Broncos. After a 14-hour trip from Lewistown, both Petersen and Dompier like what they have seen thus far. "We jumped at the chance to play here in Canada.'' said Dompier. "For me it looked like a long summer." Dompier. a first baseman.usually, has been working at third base for the Lakers. A big guy at 6'3" indicates he will play anywhere. Ac- cording to coach Sullivan, Dompier looks at home at third. Dompier, who played with Lewis and Clark State this year, also figures to help the club at the plate. Said one of Dompier's new team- mates, "he swings a mean stick." Dompier and Petersen will be in the line-up tonight in Calgary against the Giants. Sullivan indicated he would start Al Ferchuk tonight. Ferchuk played with the Lakers last year and then moved to Red Deer. The locals open their home schedule next Tuesday evening against the Jimmies. Sullivan will probably start in that game. Lakers are concerned about the grandstand, a problem they can do nothing about. "We just hope the people will says Lizzi. For the time being, at least, Laker supporters will have to sit down the first and third baselines in bleachers. Despite a shaky start, all the injuries, and an increase in rental of Henderson Park, the Lakers, to a man, are confident there is a brighter day tomorrow.
