Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 23, 1973 SB IMIUliWI IWMICi mi' 'il I 'i lllM SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan fj T CAN HAHDLY wait for Aaron to hit home run number 715 so I can Jw feels s'aif more than once that Babe Ruths rec- ord of 714 home runs would never be touched. But now, it will not onlv be touched, it wffl be eclipsed by Hammer- in Hank of the Atlanta Braves possibly this year or very early next season. This is one record I want to see broken. Aaron is one man a person can relate to. I _ never saw Babe Ruth play except in a movie and then- it was William Bendix who plajed the pail. Some records I want to see remain intact Gordie Howe's scoring records, Mau- ry Wills' base-steal mark Records such as these. I watched these things hap- pen, even if it was just on television. Aaron's charge at Ruth's more than one occasion. Does mark is described daily. You can read or hear about Aar- on's exploits continuously. One of the different slants on his record-breaking at- tempt was the one about how different pitchers would han- dle Aaron if he had 714 home runs and was looking for the 715th to break the Ruth stan- dard. Andy Messersmith of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tug McGraw of the New York Mets both said they would allow Aaron the courtesy of a fat pitch. Just like Reggie Cleveland ot the St. Louis Cardinals said "I would lay it right in there. I would let Mm know just what was com- ing." Their statements, and I be- lieve they meant them, were frowned upon by Bowie Kuhn. the commissioner of baseball. Kuhn warned that a pitch- er could be suspended if there was reason to believe he did not, to the best of his abilities, try to best Aaron. Horse feathers, Mr. Com- missioner, you're being an old stuffed shirt. In all his wisdom. Kuhn would never know if a pitcher let up on Aaron. The big guy has hit almost every kind of pitch he has faced out of the ball park on Kuhn plan to travel with the Braves as Aaron approaches 715 home runs? Will he take notes on whether or not he feels the pitchers are really trying to prevent Aaron from reaching his goal? I doubt it very much. For my money. Kuhn is simply grabbing some of the spot- light that is being focused on Aaron. the pitchers es- pecially, are cashing in on it. Take for example Guy Bush. He was the pitcher who gave up Babe Ruth's last two home runs. The thought that modern day pitchers would willingly help Aaron break Ruth's mark "is not much short of a criminal he says. If pitchers think they will profit monetarily from serv- ing up Aaron's 715th home run they are fooling them- selves feels Bush. "It's been over 35 years since Ruth hit those home runs off Bush says, "and f don't remember being in demand as a speaker. No- body has rushed up giving me endorsements and I haven't seen one dime of money." "I've never heard anything like these pitchers are say- ing. It's absolutely criminal. If this happens, I'll be ashamed I ever played the game.'' "It was the longest ball I'd ever seen'1 recalls Bush. "Ruth was just too much for Bush, in his own words, told Ruth what the pitch would be after he had grven the Babe No. 713. It was waist high, a fast me-" ball. Bush told his catcher Bush didn't serve up a fat to tell Ruth what to expect. pitch, he simply told Ruth Babe caught it on the meat what to expect. Who is he to of the bat and sent it over the tell anyone they are wrong. fence. I ask you? Hockey lost a great friend WC.IL was formed and tper- and dedicated man Thursday with the death of George Vogan of Moose Jaw. Don Pilling, the Herald's managing-editor, says Vogan "certainly put more into hoc- key than he ever got out of it." Vogan was the driving force behind the Moose Jaw Canucks of the old Western Canada Junior League. With Vogan at the helm, the Ca- nucks' organization was one of the finest in Canada. Along with the late Harper Parry and Ed Bruchet, the ated successfully for a good many years. The league produced many National Hockey League stars. Vogan handled such nota- bles as Metro Prystai, Jackie Mcleod and Larry Popiel, who is now the coach of the New York Rangers. Vogan's son Don played with the Lethbridge Maple Leafs when they won the world title in 1951. It is impossible to replace a man like Vogan who work- ed so unselfishly for hockey.

NOW SPECIALLY PRICED AT INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER PARTS and SERVICE 'Hirers mugged in Yankee Stadium Blass should have stayed in the bullpen STAFFORD DRIVE PHONE 327-3125 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Steve Blass came out of the Pittsburgh Pirates bullpen Fri- day night to start against New York Mets. But he may be back there pretty soon. Blass gave up just two big three-run second-inning double to Willie Mays and, two outs later, a home run by John Milner. Those were the only runs New York got, but they were enough to beat the Pirates 54 and keep them in the National League East Division cellar. In other games, Los Angeles Dodgers beat Cincinnati Reds 3- 2 in 10 innings, Montreal Expos defeated Philadelphia Phillies 4- 2, St. Louis Cardinals blanked Chicago Cubs 3-Ov Atlanta Biases beat San Diego Padres 7-3 and San Francisco Giants downed Houston Astros 5-1. EXPOS AT HOME The Expos are host to Phila- delphia again tonight while New York is at Pittsburgh, Houston at San Francisco, Chicago at St. Louis for single games and dou- bleheaders involving Cincinnati at Los Angeles and Atlanta at San Diego. Sunday its Philadelphia at Montreal, New York at Pitts- burgh, Chicago at St. Louis. Cincinnati at Los Angeles, At- lanta and San Diego and, the day's only twinbill, Houston at San Francisco. Blass was a 19-game winner last year. Now he's only 3-5 with a 9 51 earned-run average. Don Sutton, with two outs in the ninth inning, had Cincinnati flailing away at his pitches and Los Angeles was leading 2-0 on the strength of his three-hit, 10- strikeout performance. Then came the big Driessen's single and Johnny Bench's booming home run to tie the game. DODGERS SURVIVE Fortunately for the Dodgers, Billy Buckner came up with a big hit of his game-win- ning single in the 10th inning that gave Los Angeles its sev- enth straight victory. Mike Torrez had been having his problems, until he faced the Phils. The Expos' hurler checked them on seven hits for his first complete game of the season and his first victory since May 5. "I'm glad the win came he said. "I haven't been happy because I haven't been helping the ball club the way I feel I should have been. "This is the right time to get back on the track and help the club because I think this is go- ing to be an interesting year for our Torrez added after the Expos, a surprising second in the East, edged within four games of first place Chicago. Steve Carlton hasn't been able to get untracked this sea- son. CARLTON HAS TROUBLE "His control wasn't very Philadelphia manager Danny Ozark said. "He was struggling with his control from the start." Control wasn't bugging Reg- gie Cleveland, though. "That's the best curve ball I've had in rny the Cardinals' hurler from Swift Current, Sask., said after stifling the Cubs on three hits and striking out six of them. "I couldn't believe it. It was just dropping off the table. I'm a fastball-slider pitcher." Successive doubles by Ted Simmons and Bernie Carbo triggered the three run fifth in- ning that carried St. Louis to victory. Hank Aaron drove in two runs for the Braves against San Diego, one uf them with his 692nd career homer and 19th of the season, moving him within 22 of Babe Ruth's record 714. Detroit Tigers made it s 1 o w 1 New York's Friday evening traffic crush and an unexpected rush-hour subway ride. They made it all the way to Yankee Stadium before they got mug- ged. The perpetrator was Bobby Murcer, whose two-run double in the seventh inning capped a three-run counter rally that lifted the Yankees to a 54 vic- tory, their fifth in a row. Elsewhere in the American League, Milwaukee Brewers trounced Cleveland Indians 8-2, Oakland A's whipped Wilbur Wood and Chicago White Sox 7- 1, California Angels shaded Minnesota Twins 4-3 and Texas Rangers blanked Kansas City Royals 3-0. The Baltimore-Orioles-Boston Red Sox doubleheader was rained out. The Tigers will be able to test New York's afternoon traffic en route to Yankee Stadium today. In other games, Oakland is in Chicago, California at Min- nesota, Texas at Kansas City, Cleveland at Milwaukee and the Red Sox entertain Baltimore for two games. Four doubleheaders are slated for at Kansas City, Oakland at Chi- cago, Detroit at New York and California at two singles at Milwaukee and Baltimore in Boston. i {jftfli A day-long rain in New York let up late in the afternoon but washed out batting practice. The Tigers left their hotel at 6 p.m., an hour later than usual. The wet weather flooded nu- merous roadways and caused one of New York's more memo- rable traffic jams. By 7 o'clock, the Tigers' bus had covered only four of the six miles to Yankee Stadium. When the driver tried to find a clear street he ran into a dead end. Clearly, it was a time for leadership. "All right hand hitters follow ordered Martin, remem- bering that lefty Fritz Peterson was the Yankees' scheduled starter. They marched several Wocka to a subway and finally made it to the stadium at 10 min- utes after the scheduled atari and 10 minutes after the bus carrying the rest of the Tlgen had arrived. Amateur is told withdraiv LONDON (Reuter) An 18- year-old British tennis player said Thursday night that sev- eral piofessional stars who are boycotting Wimbledon had told him he would "be wiser" to withdraw from the world's pre- mier tournamsnt. The professionals, members of the Association of Tennis Professionals have with- drawn from Wimbledon because of a one-month ban on tourna- ment play imposed by the Inter- national Lawn Tennis Feder- ation (ILTF) on Yugoslav Nikki Pilic. John Lloyd, who is not a member of the AGP, said: "I gather they have also ap- proached several other juniors who are hoping to gei in on the game and inferred that unless we do withdraw, they could make it extremely difficult for us if we get to America and play under the ATP umbrella, because by then they will have control of the circuit." Lloyd, a member of the Brit- ish Davis Cup squad, added: "But I've wanted to play at Wiinfoledon since I was in the cot It's my life's ambi- tion and there's no way they can get me to pull out." A member of the ATP board, former British Davis Cup cap- tain John Barrett, said later: "I have spoken to John and know what he says is true. "I think it's disgraceful and I'm going to speak to (ATP president) Cliff Drysdale about it at the earliest possible oppor- tunity." Drysdale himself said it was disturbing to hear that some ATP members might be trying to influence players to withdraw their entries from the two-week tournament that starts Monday. "I intend to investigate the matter immediately, and once we establish the facts I will be taking appropriate Drysdale said. ANDY CAPP game A bench clearing, Pier Six brawl brought an abrupt halt to proceedings Friday night in a Southern Alberta Major La- crosse League game. Norm Hail of the Lethbridge Native Sens and Ron Simpson of Calgary Royals were engaged in a down-down, drag-out battle when the referees decided enough was enough. The Royals had already suf- fered a beating of a sort when the game was called at of the second period. Paced by the brilliant five- goal performance of Ken Boy- chuk. the Native Sons were leading by a comfortable 13-4 count when the proceedings were halted. Dwayne Kirchner and Ken Keenan chipped in with two goals each for the Sons while singles went to Jim Byrne, Brian Andres, Eugene Yamada and Phil Legge. Ken McDonald and Don Bauer each scored twice for t.he Roy- als. Meanwhile, in 1he Southern Alberta Junior Lacorsse League Taber scored a 9-6 triumph over Ixjthbridge.

DIAL 328-8861 Bartlett favors local sponsors A meeting that will "help to sort out what will happen in junior hockey in the city over the next couple of years" will be held at 4 p.m. July 5 in city council chambers. Community services direc- tor Bob Bartlett said Friday the meeting is being held to hear proposals from groups seeking a Junior "A" fran- chise in the city. Bartlett said he has had formal contact with two local groups already wishing to op- erate a junior hockey team here. Interest has picked up con- siderably in the top rungs of junior hockey circles the Western Canada Hockey League and the Alberta Ju- nior Hockey League since the awaMing of the 1975 Can- ada Winter Games and an- nouncement of construction of the Sportsplex. At least one outside group is known to be interested in a Lethbridge franchise in the WCHL. City council, however, has adopted a policy recommend- ed by the community ser- vices department that prior- ity be given locally owned and operated franchises. This and a willingness and ability to work with minor hockey in the city are consid- ered to be prime qualities for any group seeking ice time on city-owned facilities. In other hockey matters, Bartlett has recommended to council that the ronstruction of additional minimal artifi- cial ice arenas in the city be delayed for at least a year. Two such ice facilities had been requested earlier this year by the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association, but Bart- lett feels, given the cost at an estimated 000 and the city's number one recreational priority which is a swimming pool in North Lethbridge, they couldn't built this year. He suggests as an alterna- tive, however, that the pos- sibility of installing piping and an ice plant in a building at the Lethbridge and District Exhibition at a cost of be explored.
