Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June YESl we are accepting (or CHRISTMAS BOOKINGS TO HAWAII no deposit required ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Herald Sports Tangle of feet Jerry Pocza got all tangled up at second base Sunday. Locals trounce Highwood 15-4 New look for Junior Miners By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The uniform is not supposed to make the ballplayer, but you will have a hard time convincing the Lethbridge Junior Miners of that. The Miners, finally sporting their long overdue new uniforms, made only one error and pounded out 13 hits to trounce the Highwood Juniors 15-4 in a Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League game at Henderson Park Sunday. The locals were definitely not the same ballclub that made 13 errors while dropping both ends of a doubleheader to the Acme Pirates a week earlier. Over 100 fans were on hand to see the Junior Miners test out their brand new green and white uniforms, which were delayed four weeks by a manufacturer's error. Greg Hamilton's grand slam home run over the left field fence sparked an 11 run fifth inning rally which put the 'OW ABOUT LETTW YOUR UNION REPRESENTATIVE WALK "YOU 'CWlE, PLO?

Kenny Hall led the local attack with four goals while Tony Simioni had three. Darfyl McLelian and Paul Byrne each added two goals while Dave Boulton had a single counter- contest out of Highwood's reach. The Miners belted out eight hits in that frame, sending two Highwood pitchers to early showers before Mar. Lorrienda finally put a stop to the locals' batting spree. Dennis Hatt had a double and three singles in four trips to the plate for the Miners, while Min McLelian and Miles Stromsmoe each added two safeties. Stu Dow. who had pitched only five innings prior to Sunday's contest, went the distance on the mound, fanning 15 visiting batters along the way. Coach Doug Frier was very pleased with the Team's showing Sunday and was particularly excited about Dow's performance. "It looks like we've got another steady chucker to go along with Allan Korth and Jon Petrunia." he said. "Stu has had some confidence problems, but today he really did a job. HaviVg three strong pitchers will be real handy when the playoff tournament rolls around." Dennis Sakires had a double and two singles while Brian Millar managed a pair of singles for the visitors, who were able to sting Dow for hits only six times during the afternoon. The locals now sport a 5-6 season record, which they will try to improve upon when they travel to Vauxhall Tuesday for a rescheduled contest against the Jets. Then, on Thursday night, the Junior Miners will host the same Jets for their last home game of the regular season in a p.m. contest at Henderson Park.

(AP) Steady Sandra Haynie made a string of birdies in the rain Sunday to win her second Ladies Professional Golf Association championship. The 31-year-old Texan, who nursed a one-stroke lead at the outset of the final round, pulled away with birdies on three of the first four holes and finished with a par 73 at Pleasant Valley Country Club, bringing her 72-hole score to 288, four under par. It was her 31st victory on the LPGA tour, her second in a. row. She won the Medina Open a week ago in a playoff, but there was no need for extra holes this time around. Despite a faltering finish, she dominated the field, winning by two strokes over JoAnne CaKner. She had a 69 round and then three straight 73s on the links, earning and the title she first won in 1965. Mrs. Garner started the final round three strokes off the pace. However, the former five-time U.S. amateur champion was unable to do better than a 72, winding up at 290. "I bring only one game with me to each tournament, Miss Haynie said. "I go out to try to make pars, take advantage of birdie opportunities and avoid mistakes. I think a lot of times leaders try to save what they have, but I try to play the same." Sandra Palmer, who set course record of 66 in the sec- ond round, had trailed by only one stroke after 54 'holes but ran into putting trouble and took a closing 75 for third place with a 291 total. With the first-prize money. Miss Haynie boosted her life- time earnings on the LPGA tour to including this year. She trails only Kathy Whitworth among the all-time top women money winners. Miss Whitworth finished tied for seventh with 296. Sandra Post, formerly of Oakville, Ont. who beat Miss West stars whip East Whitworth in a playoff for the LPGA title here in 1968, fin- ished fourth, firing an out- standing 70 in the final round for a 293 total. Murle Breer was fifth at 294. Then came 1973 champion Mary Mills, local favorite Janie Blalock, Judy Rankin and Sue Roberts. .7 million to CAHA WINNIPEG (CP) Frank McKinnon of Carman, president of the Manitoba Amateur Hockey Association said Sunday the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) expects to realize million in draft monies from the National Hockey League and the 'World Hockey Association this year. McKinnon said about 000 will be turned over to the CAHA for administrative purposes and will be distributed to clubs where drafted players spent their last six seasons.
