Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDOf HERALD Friday, Jun. V, The Brown Bomber thinks back Goodbye Yogi Home plate umpire Tom Gorman efeets New York manager Yogi Berra from the game after an argument over one of Gorman's calls in the seventh inning. Berra thought Duffy Dyer had tagged Pittsburgh Pirates' Al Oliver as he slid home but Gorman said no. Pirates won 2-1. Mets are at it again Berra leaves early By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS nerneraber vhen the Nev.' York Mets used to be lovable, laughable losers?

With the score 1-1 in the ninth, the Pirates had the bases loaded with nobody out when Bob Robertson hit a ground ball to second baseman Felix Mi- lan. Milan threw home to force Gene dines. Then New York catcher Duffy Dyer, trying to complete a double play to first, threw the ball into right field. Right fielder Rusty Staub, playing in close, saved a wild throw and fired the ball to sec- ond base to nip Al Oliver, who was trying to duck back to sec- ond after over running the bag. THROWS WILD Dave Cash, who started the play on second base, rounded third on Staub's throw and scored the winning run.

Houston Astros routed San Diego Padres 12-2 and Los Angeles Dodgers blanked At- lanta Braves 5-0. The Pirates, who remained last in the East with Phila- games behiqd Chicago Cubs, are at home to the Mets again tonight while the Phillies, with Steve Carlton on the mound, go against the Expos at Montreal. Other night contests include Chicago at St. Louis, Atlanta in San Diego, Cincinnati at Los Angeles and Houston at San Francisco. In ttie seventh inning of the Met s-Pirates game, Pitts- burgh's Al Oliver came home from first on Manny Sanguil- len's double and appeared to be out by three steps on the relay throw when catcher Duffy Dyer missed the tag. "The ball had me said but I really don't know if he tagged me." BERRA EJECTED New York manager Yogi Berra thought he did, and was thrown out of the game for pro- testing the "safe" call by um- pire Tom Gorman. Bob Gibson scattered hits and slugged his 23rd career home run to lead St. Louis over Montreal. Gibson's homer gave the Cardinals a 4-0 lead and their eventual winning run. Tm just lucky to get what- ever hits I said Gibson, one of the better hitting pitch- ers in the majors. Tom Bradley pitched a four- hitter and started a six-run rally in the fifth inning with a double to pace San Francisco over Cincinnati. Lee May slugged three home runs and drove in five runs to power Houston over San Diego. Dave Winfield, the Padres' rookie sensation fresh out of college, collected three hits, in- cluding a bases-empty homer in the fifth. Claude Osteen pitched a four- hit shutout and Willie Crawford cracked a home run, leading Los Angeles over Atlanta. It was Osteen's 37th career shut- out. It was a fight Louis had to win NEW YPRK (AP) it wasn't until 35 years ago to- day that Joe Louis, the Brown Bomber whose devastating fists lifted him out of a De- troit ghetto to the heavyweight title, finally felt like a cham- pion. On that night, before fans in Yankee Stadium, Louis battered former cham- pion Max Schmeling into a groggy, floundering hulk in only two minutes and four seconds of the first round. For Louis, it was vindica- tion for the humiliating de- feat Schmeling dealt him two years before when the beetle-browed German stun- ned the boxing world by knocking him out in 12 rounds. And for the American public, it was an encounter between an American and a symbol of German suprema- cy. "I won't feel like a cham- pion until I get that Schmel- Louis remarked after he won the title by knocking out James J. Braddock in eight rounds. America was recovering from the depression in 1938 and began speculating about the buildup of a German war machine which Adolf Hitler soon unleash against the world. Hitler had intimi- dated the world with quick feints. He remilitarized the Ehineland in violation of the Versailles Treaty. His swift legions had absorbed Aus- tria in an almost bloodless coup and a wave of anti-Sem- tism had united the German people in persecution of a common scapegoat. Louis was never one to be- become involved in political matters; he simply wanted revenge against Schmeling. He couldn't fully savor the glory of holding one of sport's top honors until he had de- feated the only man who had beaten him. Schmeling, interviewed re- cently in Hamburg, Ger- many, where he directs a successful soft-drink fran- chise, remembered the ef- fects of the publicity cam- paign to turn the bout into an ideological confrontation. FANS SPAT ON MAX "When I walked from my dressing room to the ring, violent demonstrations by the crowd started against the then-ruling regime in what was the Third Sch- meling, now 67 years old, said. "The Spectators identi- fied me with it. Wrongfully, but what was I to do? Over the short distance to the ring I was spat upon and had cig- arette packs and cardboard thrown at me." Louis remembered that pul- sating first round. "He tried a right to my head but it went around he said. "I left jabbed him mean and brought his guard low. I drove a right to the jaw with all I had. I put my body into it. It threw him on the ropes and his knees buck- led." Louis ripped both hands Into Schmeling's body, bring- ing a scream of agony from his opponent when one of the blows landed over a kidney. know the kidney knock was Schmel- ing said. "I was partly to blame because I turned a lit- tle into it." Schmeling moved away from the ropes and Louis then sent him to the canvas with a clubbing right to the jaw. Schmeling regained his feet at the count of three, but went down again from two lefts and a right to the chin. Schmeling was helpless as he rose on shaky legs and tried to focus blurred eyes on the muscular Louis, who eagerly waited to apply the coup de grace. Not wasting a punch, Louis cooly measured Schmeling and knocked him out with a left hook and a right to the jam. Schmeling pitched forward on his face and was counted out by referee Arthur Dono- van. "I waited two years for raf revenge and now I got Louis told a radio interview- er after the bout. Promoter Mike Jacobs tried to stage a third bout between the two in Germany was at war. Sch- meling never joined the Nazi Party and was advised by friends in the United States' not to return to Germany. "I would have stayed, but my mother and wife lived in Schmeling said. "I was worried the Nazis would do something if I didn't return. They knew I was afraid I suffered for this." Looking back at that night 35 years ago, Schmeling said, "I can tell you, that bout is still real to me. The two fights with Joe Louis left the most lasting impressions on me particularly because Joe and I are still good friends. Whenever there is a chance we get together. We've always kept up con- tact." Oakland must wonder what it takes to win By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Oakland A's put it to Chicago everywhere but on the score- board Thursday night, getting to pitcher Stan Bahnsen for 12 hits before bowing to the White Sox 2-0. The hit barrage was just two shy of the most hits ever allowed in a nine-inning shut- out. Elsewhere in the American League, Minnesota Twins and Bert Blyleven edged California Angels 1-0 on a ninth-inning pinch single by Joe Lis, New York Yankees trimmed Detroit Tigers 5-1 in a rain-shortened six-inning contest, Baltimore Orioles beat Boston Red Sox 6-3 and Cleveland Indians whacked Milwaukee Brewers 9-1. Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers were not scheduled. The White Sox, who main- tained a half-game lead over Minnesota in the West, will have 14-game winner Wilbur Wood facing the A's at Com- iskey Park today while the Twins entertain California. In other games, the Yanks meet Detroit at New York, Bal- timore is in Boston for a day- night doubleheader, Texas visits Kansas City and Milwaukee is at home to Cleveland. The A's baserunning mis- adventures began right off the bat. Bert Campaneris opened the game with a double but was trapped and run down at third on Bill North's bunt back to the mound. North reached second on the play but he couldn't stand prosperity, either, and was thrown out by catcher Ed Herrmann trying to steal third. The A's wasted two singles in the second inning and two more in the fourth. Campaneris sin- gled with one out in the fifth but was cut down by John Jeter when he tried to go to third on North's single to centre. Meanwhile, the White Sox, who had never beaten Ken Holtzman, broke through the Bourassa says yes to Japan MONTREAL (CP) Jo- celyne Bourassa, winner of the Ladies Professional Golf Association Canadian champion- ship here Monday, has accepted an invitation to play in a profes- sional-amateur tournament in Japan, Oct. 25-28. Gerry Patterson of Montreal, Miss Bourassa's business man- ager, said Thursday Jocelyne will be one of two North Ameri- can professionals taking part in the Tokai Classic at Nagoya, Japan. Miss Bourassa, a 26-year-old native of Shawinigan, Que., 75 miles northeast of Montreal, won the first prize in the Canadian event when she de- feated Judy Rankin and Sandra Haynie in a three-hole playoff for the title after the three wound up regulation 54-hole play with identical 214 scores. Oakland southpaw for both their runs in the fifth inning on dou- bles by Herrmann and Jeter and Carlos May's single. Pinch hitter Lis bounced a run-scoring single up the middle with two out in the ninth to back Blyleven's eight-hit pitch- ing and give the Twins their win over California. Thurman Munson and Felipe ALLAN YOUNG Young leaves Stampeder camp Another player left camp with Calgary Siampeders Thursday, reducing the West- ern Football Conference club's strength to 62. Allan Young, 23, an offensive guard from Montana State Uni- versity, was the seventh play- er to leave since the training camp began Sunday. He is a native of Lethbridge. Tony Perea, touted as a re- placement for retiring all-star linebacker Wayne Harris, also quit the Stampeders' training camp Thursday. Perea was the eighth rookie to quit the camp, leaving only shortly after Young departed. Coach Jim Duncan said Per- ea, a 22-year-old from Texas El Paso University, left in a con- fusing manner. "He talked with me yesterday and asked me at noon 10 assess his ability. I said I can't do that at this time because it's too early. "Then today he said the way he had it figured was that he was on the fourth team, but we only were working with three middle linebackers. Fig- that one out." The Stampeders opened their training camp Sunday and now have 61 players. U.S. EARNS SPLIT TOKYO (AP) The United States college all-star men's basketball team beat a Chinese squad 94-67 Thursday, the U.S. women lost to the Chinese 65-46. Alou tagged Detroit ace Mickey Lolich for two-run homers, help- ing the Yankees defeat the Ti- gers. It was the fourth straight victory for the Yankees, leaders in the East. The only Detroit run came on Norm Cash's sec- ond-inning homer off Pat Dob- son, the first by a Tiger player in Yankee Stadium since Sept. 4, 1971. Paul Blair drove hi three runs with a homer and single, lead- ing the Orioles over the Red Sox. George Hendrick crashed a two-run homer, his 10th in 14 games and fifth in 10 times at bat, and Buddy Bell and John Ellis added solo shots to lead Cleveland over the Brewers.
