Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, June 21, 197) tHI IETHBRIDGE HERALD >Ti-Cats got off to a quick 10-0 start, but faltered The air was filled with footballs HAMILTON (CP) K you sat down and discussed in detail with Jerry Williams his througbts on Wednesday night's game with the Canadian Foot- ball League All-Stars, he'd prob- ably come up with any number of reasons why his Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats were drubbed 22-11. The score flattered the Ticats, 1972 Grey Cup champions. They were simply outgunned by the stars of eight other CFL clubs who came from an early 10-0 deficit to take command before the half. And it was apparent early in the game that the national champions are in deep trouble through the premature retire- ment of running back Dave Bu- chanan, last year's leading rusher. Canadian Norm Wesolowski didn't fill the gap, nor could veteran Dave Fleming. And newcomer Andy Hopkins lost al- most as much as he gained. The result was a passing game and quarterbacks on both teams filled Ivor Wynne Sta- dium with 85 aerials, ignoring almost entirely the ground game, much to the pleasure of John Payne, new head coach of Saskatchewan Roughriders and head man of the stars by virtue of 'Riders appearance against Hamilton in last season's na- tional final. STARS OVERWHELM Payne arrived here Tuesday and expressed some worry that his bread-and-butter carrier, George Reed, would be over- worked. As it turned out he needn't have worried. All-star quarterbacks Ron Lamb's home run sparks Miners' A two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh off the bat of right-fielder Garth Lamb BARB HORNE Tops in Calgary Barb Home is the best in Calgary Barb Home, formerly of Lethbridge, won the Calgary women's open golf champion- ship in Calgary Wednesday with a resounding 14-stroke tri- umph. Miss Horne, 22 years of age, fired a brilliant 69 Wednesday to win going away over the Oowtown's finest. Miss Horne is cunently working at Mount Royal College. She had earlier fired rounds of 74-77 to hold the lead all three days. It was also announced Wed- nesday that Miss Horne will be one of six young women who will meet a six-member British golf team in Toronto shortly. Four golfers from Ontario, one from' Saskatchewar and Miss Horne make up the Cana- dian team. Miss Horne and the other gals are all on the Mar- lene Stewart Streit scholarship fund. While in Lethbridge Miss Horne won seven major tourna- ments in her last three years including a string of three- straight city titles. gave the Lethbridge Miners a narrow 3-1 win over the Pin- cher Creek Hotel Orphans in Lethbridge Major Men's Fast- ball League action at Dave Elton Wednesday. In the other game Lethbridge Hotel North Stars blanked Labor Club Athletics 6-0. With one away and Corrido Santoni at first base following a walk, Lamb stroked his de- cisive blow to earn Garry Sim- mons the win over Darrell Lea- vitt. Leavitt, in his strongest showing of the year was tagged for two singles and a double by Larry Tratch and a double by Richard Shewchuk in taking the loss. Simmons, on the other hand, allowed just a first inning dou- ble to Alf Gorzitza and then scattered three singles in going the distance. In the second encounter both clubs came up with seven hits but the North Stars bunched theirs to score three runs in the second inning and two more in the fifth. They added a solo run in the seventh. Ron Zasadny was the win- ner over George Jackci. Zas- adny struck out eight while smashing a two-run home run in file fifth inning. Mitch Mychasiuk added three singles for the winners while Tom Seaman added a double. Harry Nagata stroked three safeties for the Athletics. Elks tourney now July 28-29 The annual Elks golf tourna- ment will now be staged July 28 and 29 at Henderson Lake Golf Club. The two-day event was rain- ed out earlier in the year and was rescheduled for July 14 and 15. But these dates were found unsuitable. August 4 and 5 were out of the question due to the Country Club invitation- al and the Waterton Lakes an- nual tournament. It is now official, barring any rain or bad weather, the Elks will go July 28-29 and are cepting entries. However, if you are already entered and plan to play at the new dates, you are still regis- tered. Lancaster of Saskatchewan and Don Jonas from Winnipeg Blue Bombers, took advantage of the game's rule that forbids blitzing .by linebackers, ex- ploited Hamilton's secondary. They combined for 53 passes, 28 of them completions, with seven going to Montreal Alouette tight end Peter Dalla Riva. The gangling 22S-pounder was continually in the clear and his performance earned him the Labatt's player-of-the-game award, a trophy supplemented by cash. "We haven't got that much of an offence admitted Ham- ilton centre Doug Mitchell. "They (the stars) knew we were going to have to throw the ball." Tony Gabriel, Ticats tight end who provided coach Williams with at least a glimmer of hope by loping through the all-star secondary with four receptions for 113 yards and Hamilton's SULLY SAYS T READ a very interest- ing item this past week that should interest a good many baseball fans. Nearing the 1973 All Star game this year in Kansas City, fans usually find them- selves drawn irresistibly to- ward every type of all star selection. In Sporting News an item was given prominent display. It intrigued me and I'm sure it will hold some fascination for you. The attention was focused on a group of deserving play- ers called "The 10 Greatest Slayers, NOT in the HALL of FAME." If nothing else, it is differ- ent from all other all star aggregations, to say the least. Both Roberts and Ford seem certain to be elected soon. Kell, who most agree is deserving, is not that sure of ever making it while Mize is running out of eligibility. All the others are at the mercy of the Old-Timers Com- mittee. Lombardi headed the list of vote-getters in the final analysis of the recent re- search. He poled 70 per cent as compared to Mize, Vau- ghan, Klein and both pitch- ers all of whom were over 50 per cent. The fact Lombardi headed the list was surprising to most but not to Arthur Daley. Lombardi was one of the most remarkable players Daley ever saw, and he has seen his share. "Pee Wee Reese was in the league for four years, before I realized he was a short- Lombardi once said. He was simply being cute. Whenever he was at bat Reese would play shallow left field because of the missile- like line drives off the bat of Lombardi. Somewhere in the archives of the game of baseball is a story how Lombardi made Leo Durocher hang up his glove forever. You can make up your own mind as to whether or not it is true. With Lombardi at bat Dur- ocher was 40 feet back on the grass as the Dodger short- stop. Lombardi swung might- ily but barely nicked the ball. It trickled toward short with Leo racing in frantically but too late even to catch the slowpoke Lombardi. "That does it, barked Leo. "When Lombardi can beat my throw, it's time for me to Pat Sullivan The list of players has been offered by the Society for American Baseball Research, ever that is after tabulating its own members. Here are their candidates for the shrine at Cooperstown along with their lifetime bat- ting averages: Johnny Mize, first base, .312; BUly Herman, second base 304; Arky Vaughan, shortstop, .318; George Kell, third base, .306. -Outfielders would include, Chuck Klein, .320; Earl Averill, .318 and Jack Wilson, .307. The catcher for this-over- the-MU, and not yet selected group would be Ernie Lom- bardi a .306 hitter while pitch- ing would be Whitey Ford, the top lefthander and Robin Roberts the righthander. Twice Lombardi won the National League batt ing crown and was always one of the most feared hitters in the game. Big Lombardi was pro- bably the slowest runner in the game which hurt consid- erably. The big guy got no leg hits. He couldn't outrun a tortoise. He didn't run, he lumbered. He was 6'3" and weighted 230 pounds. The bat looked like a huge toy in his hands. The outfielders backed up against the fences when he came to the plate and the in- fielders played well back on the grass. Because Lomlbardi was so slow, the infielders knew they could throw him out from anywhere in the ball park. quit. I'll never play again.'' He never did, either. Truth or fiction? Who knows for sure. As a matter of fact, it is on record that Durocher was later to say, "if Lombardi could have run, he'd now be in the Hall of Fame." As it was he was a great gloveman as a catcher and he could throw base runners out at second still in his crouch. Add to this the fact that he tfas the most valuable play- er in the National League in 1938, and researchers need look no further. If the list of 10 greatest NOT in the Hall of Fame has negative overtones, it really doesn't matter. It provokes in- teresting speculation and con- versation. That's always been baseball's strongpoint. I wonder if that's why Leth- bridge's Murray Mills keeps telling me he sent his glove to Cooperstown after an illus- trious career? lone touchdown, took the loss philosophically. "Look, it's early in the sea son. You can't take anything away from the all-stars. They worked our defences over pretty good. "But I honestly feel we could have made a game of it. We shouldn't have gone back to the same (pass) patterns. We should have bit (passed) short gone to some look-ins." Gabriel's completion of a 50- yard pass play with Chuck Ea- ley, Ian Sunter's convert aix 20-yard field goal sent the Ti- cats into a ifrO lead by the mark. single after the all stars had closed to within one point early in the second quar- ter rounded out the Hamilton scoring. Jim Young of British Colum- bia Lions and Dalla Riva caught touchdown passes for the stars in that same quarter. The all-stars were helped into the lead when Hamilton punter Paul McKay ran a third-down punt situation back into the" Ti- cat end zone for a two-point safety. It was the first of two safeties ordered by Williams game to give Hamilton better field posi- tions. Versatile Gerry Organ of Ot- tawa Rough Riders, who did both the punting and place kick- ing for the all-stars and addi tional duty at offensive end converted both major scores and added 43-yard and 42-yard singles. The Ticats offensive line sim- ply wasn't able to handle the all-stars' front four that in eluded Ottawa's Wayne Smith selected by his peers in the CFL Players' Association as the country's outstanding lineman John Helton of Calgary Stampe- ders, Bill Baker of Saskatche- wan and Jim Stillwagon of To ronto Argonauts. And Jerry Campbell of pt tawa, who called the defensive signals, had the linebackers playing so close to scrimmage it appeared as if the stars were playing six and seven men along the line. Helton said. "We played a four-three defence. "Some of the linebackers played up on the line, but they were dropping off for pass cov- erage."

Canadian golf pros and winner of the Alberta Open, and GaGry Bowerman of Richmond Hill, Ont., who won last week's Brit- ish Columbia Open, lead the field of 70 pros competing for the top prize money. Rafe Botts of Los Angeles, winner of the Ontario open on the first stop on the-cross-Canada tour, has not entered the Saskatche- wan tourney. Terry Kendall of Wellington, N.Z., winner of last year's Sas- katchewan Open in Saskatoon, is also expected to take a crack at the par-71 Wsacana GoGlf Cl layout. Although an amateur has never won ft tournament since the Peter Jackson Tobacco Co. took over sponsorship of the tour three years ago, highly- touted Rick Folk of Saskatoon should present a formidable challenge. The 2J-year-old Folk swept all amateur honors in the province last year and was low amateur in last year's Saskatchewan Open. He also represented the province in last year's Willing- don Cup competition. Folk may be joined in the field by Willingdon Cup team- mate Gerry Ponder, more widely known as a member of Cleveland Crusaders of the World Hockey Association. Pin- der, a Saskatoon native, has en- tered today's pro-am, but has paid an entry fee to play in a tournament in Saskatoon' this weekend. However, he could decide to forfeit his entry fee in Saska- toon and play in the 54-hole open on the Wascana course.

In another encounter the North Star Bantams and Great West Tire played to a 6-6 stale- mate. Lori Hamilton and Lorraine Dow wielded the heavy lumber for the Bantams as each poked out a triple. Dow's three-bag- ger scored two runs while Ham- ilton knocked in one. Linda McKenzie stroked a home run for Great West while Nadia Zacchiana managed a triple. Advance Lumber Jacks dumped Ducan Drifters 114 in Men's Slow Pitch Wednesday as Pat Paterson was the win- ner over Bruce Lowe.

Maxwell struck out 14 and allowed just four hits as the Indians doubled the score, 8-4, on the Twins. The loss went to Perry MacDonald. When Maxwell was at the plate, he turned on Mac- Donald for two singles which knocked in three runs. Scott Parenteau also managed two hits for the Indians. Calvin Byam stroked a dou- ble and single in a losing cause. The Canucks edged the Red Sox 8-7 at Lakeside as Ricky Moser bested Jeff Hamilton. Moser aided his own cause with three singles while team- mate Randy Baldry managed a double and single. Chester Yung started the game for the Canucks. Jim Wolfe was good for two doubles and a like number of singles in four trips to the plate for the Red Sox.

SAN DIEGO (AP) The American Basketball Associ- ation tentatively adopted a rule Wednesday allowing a player to remain in the game no matter how many fouls he commits. Commissioner Robert Carlson said the "revolutionary rule" will be tried in pre-season games and adopted for the regular season if it doesn't dis- rupt the game. Under long-standing basket- ball rules, players are benched for the rest of the game once they commit a certain number of personal in the professional leagues, five in col- lege. Norm. Drucker, the ABA's su- pervisor of officials, brought up the proposal before the rules committee at the league meet- ings here. He argued that the rule would allow fans to see star players for more of the game and eliminate the need for players in foul trouble to play half hearted defence for fear of fouling out. brother Barry each hit a run in the game.
