Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Wednudoy, Jung 71, 1972 -By Pal Sullivan jy, yOU know what liicy say aboul banging you hcnd against a hrick wall, it feels good when you quit, 1 dug :ny baseball glove and spikes out of (ho trunk of my car Monday when I found out (be St. Louis Cardinals would be conducting a baseball tiyout camp Saturday at Henderson Park. I don't discourage easily. The Houston Astros' Pat Gillick was nice about it when he conducted a camp last year. "You need a little work on the basic fundamen- tals of the Gillick politely told me. Then bis friend Epi Geuncro took me aside and explained they were looking for ball players and not over-age batboys. What did he know? He had never even seen snow before. Can you imagine the nerve of the guy? Coming from the jungles of South Ameri- ca and felling me I don't know ho'.v to play baseball. informed them both that I had played left out for lots of good baseball teams in my career. And so it is. On Saturday morning I plan to be front row centre with my glove and spikes when Norm Trasolme of Vancouver starts to look things over. How could a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals, trained to have an eye for talent, miss me with my purple glove, oversized spikes and paunch? Laugh all you want. At 29 years of age I'm just reaching my prime. Not only that, but I don't expect to be the oldest player on hand. Karl Sorokoski took his Cardinal batting helmet, a real one at that, out of mothballs and he plans to be there Saturday. How does this sound for a double play combina- tion? Sorokoski to Sullivan to Smith or Jones. All kidding aside though, this is a big opportunity for southern Alberta boys. I don't recall any major league teams showing an interest in Lethbridge or area when I was 16. But this Saturday Trasoline will show a definite interest in any boy 16-19 years of age who is willing to come out to the tryout camp. It used to be that if you were a good ball player, or at least thought you were, you would have to go to them. Not anymore and Saturday is an indication of better things to come. So don't forget, 10 Saturday morning join me at Henderson Lake for the one-day camp. I just might be able to show you some new tricks. Losing 164 to North Battleford Saturday evening didn't seem to bother manager Doug Frier of the Lethbridge Lakers as much as the trip home. Lakers got to North Battleford alright and when their Sunday encounter with Kindersley was post- poned due to rain the team headed home and the fun began. "We weren't drinking or said Frier Monday "but we got lost." "We went from pavement, to gravel, to dirt and then back to gravel and then back to he added. "It got so bad we didn't even know where we were." At one point in the wilds of Saskatchewan, ac- cording to Frier, the people came out and cheered. They thought they were finally going to get bus ser- vice. Narrow victory The M and K Generals came up with three runs in the top of the sixth and seventh in- nings to edge the Labor Club Athletics 6-5 in Commercial Mens" Fastball League action Tuesday night. The Athletics held a 4-0 lead after five innings of play as losing pitcher Ed Carpenter carried a no- hitter. Generals came back with eight hits in the final two in- nings to give Tom Yip, who was relieved by Kaye Elliott fa the seventh inning, the victory. Rod Morrice stroked a pair of singles while Bill Christian' son added a double for the Generals. Harry Nagata belted a home run while Tom Fillingham man- aged a double and a single for the losers. Dennis Obcrg also poked out a pair of singles in a losing cause. Meanwhile in exhibition play, the Miners' Library tagged los- ing pitcher Dennis Hydychuk for 10 hits to drop the 'Leth- bridge Hotel Juniors 8-4.

(AP) Running back Johnny Musso, Alabama's "Italian says he never thought he would spurn a National Foot- ball League offer to join a Ca- nadian club. But he did and he is delighted. "There really wasn't any comparison between the said Musso, who rejected Chi- cago Bears in favor of British Columbia Lions in Vancouver. "I got a better contract and the people treated me belter it's beautiful country and I believe there is a lot of op- portunity for a guy who goes Aquatic clinic set for weekend An aquatic instructors clinic will be held on the weekend. The clinic is a joint affair with the Alberta Red Cross Water Safety, Lethbridge Community Services department and the Department of Culture, Youth and Recreation sponsoring the two-day session. The clinic will be held Sat- urday and Sunday with regis- tration beginning at 9 a.m. on both days. Instructional lime is set for 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for moms and tofs Saturday while on Sunday the pre-schools will get instruction between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Further information can be obtained by contacting Mas Gibb at 328-9686. up there and does he added. Musso, one of Bear Bryant's finest products, Mill be per- forming for the Alabama coach for the last time Satur- day night as a member of the East team in the Coaches All- America Football Game. The nationally televised contest matches Bryant's Easterners against the Western club of Oklahoma's Chuck Fairbanks in Texas Tech's Jones Stad- ium. Musso, 5 foot 11 and 191 pounds, said until recently he never considered a pro career anywhere but the NFL. "Really and truly, that's where I always wanted to he said. "I never thought about playing any where else. But I got drafted low and then Chicago didn't make any glamorous offers by far." He said he got "a little dis- enchanted with the Bears and then began seriously consider- ing a Canadian offer. After I talked about it with them (lire after they made their offer and I saw their place and met their people and saw how they treated you, I don't even know why I thought about it so long." "There's a lot of different things up there. You can have a job or go to school and still play. It's not a full-time job like it is down here. It's not such a big thing but I may go back to school. I might go to law school and that would be a big pius for playing in Canada." Mrs. Dougbs, cheered on by her Inisbatid Country Clui) pro- fessional Mike Douglas, put tho pressure on Miss dome oil tlio opening nine holes. Mrs. Douglas came up with a solid 43, just three strokes back of Miss Home's 40. "I was cooler than a good sheet of curling ice on the back nine." joked Mrs. Douglas. She finished with, a 51 for a 95 and second place. Miss Home, while it seems she coasted to victory, was displeased with three double bogey's on the back nine. With her Tuesday triumph Miss Home stretched her win- ning mark to seven major city titles in the past four years. Her win Tuesday was her third straight Country Club Invitational honor. Add to that 'ter four straight city women's :rowns and you can see where ler domination is. Third place in the champ- ionship flight went to Helen Foss of the host club with a 95 after rounds of 47-48. Norcen Johnson of Fernic was in at 9S with scores of 45-51, good enough for fourth place. Rounding out the remainder of the championship flight were Gladys Redfern of the Country Club with a 98, Bertha Stewart of Fort Macleod 99 Doreen Ehlert of Cutbank Mont. 99 and Grace TeLford, Pincher Creek 102, Meanwhile, in the nine-hole senior event Mary Quittenbaum of the Country Club was the winner.
