Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Soturday, Junt 30, 1973 Sox edge A's Bibby who? Texas asks By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Bibby family had already made its "mark in basketball through Henry's performance with New York Knicks. Then Jim Bibby went out and one-hit Kansas City Royals Fri- day night, pitching the Bibbys into the American League record book and Texas Rangers 10 a 3-0 victory. Elsewhere in the league, New York Yankees pounded Cleve- WBA says sorry to tj die champ RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The VTorld Boxing Association re- fused to sanction Friday_ a world heavyweight champion- ship fight between champion C-eorge Foreman and Joe (King) Roman scheduled for Tokyo on Sept. 1. A "formal request from the Ja- pan Boxing Commission for sanction of the Foreman-Roman bout was received Friday by William Brennan, chairman of the championship committee of the WBA which has its head- quarters here. Brennan said after a "lengthy telephone discussion Friday with WBA president Bobby Lee of Honolulu, it was decided the contest would not be in the best interests of boxing at this time as far as the WBA con- cerned." Brennan said, "Roman k not as one of the top 10 con- fenders by the although be realized Roman recently was rated by another group. He added he could not say or not this was done for convenience in making a Foreman-Roman fight pos- sible." TITLE ON LINE Brennan said that if the fight takes place and should Fore- man lose, then Foreman would no longer be the champion, and the title would be vacant. "We still wouldn't consider it a championship fight and we would match the No. l and No. 2 fighters for the title." Brennan indicated that Fore- man, should he win an unsanc- tjoned match, still would be the WBA champion. Asked then why Foreman would be stripped of his WBA title if he lost a match not sanc- t i o n e d, Brennan replied: "That's been the way it is ever since the Marquis of Queens- berry." land Indians 7-2, Baltimore Ori- oles slugged Detroit Tigers 9-2, Minnesota Twins blanked Cali- fornia Angels 4-0, Chicago White Sox edged Oakland A's 4- 3 and the Boston Red Sox-Mil- waukee Brewers game was rained out. After Fran Healy opened up the Kansas City sixty by doubl- ing off the wall in left-centre to spoil the no-hitter, Bibby kept his cool and struck out Frank Patek, tha Royals next batter. saw no sense in jumping all over the Bibby said. "I wasn't thinking about a no- hitter anyways. I figure if I'm going to get one, I'll get one." CAME CHEAP j Bibby was traded to Tsxas June 6 by St. Louis for two mi- nor leaguers, and a look at the records explains why. His record now stands at one vic- tory in the American League and one in the National. Bibby's NL victory came in a Cardinal uniform lam year after toiling since 1965 in the minors. That record caused St. Louis to ship him south where he ran into an old friend. Rangers manager Whitey Herzog. "I've known Bibby for four or five years and he has never lacked said Herzog. "I thought he was a good risk when I picked him up. I didn't give up anything and I was des- perate for pitching help. Bibby throws harder than any- body in this league except Nolan Ryan when he's on top of his game. Roy White slugged two homers and Bobby Murcer added another in New York's victory over Gaylord Perry, whose pitching was being filmed by ABC television to de- termine if the Cleveland right- hander threw more than just a baseball. SUSPECTS GREASEBALL Murcer had claimed, after Perry defeated the Yanks last Monday in Cleveland, that Gay- lord was applying an illegal substance to make the ball do tricks. Murcer, fined by the league Friday after complaining that officials hadn't the "guts" to dean up Perry's act, wasn't mollified by his homer against Gaylord Friday night. "It looked like a hanging Murcer said. The night was a total failure for the Perry family. Jim was pitching for Detroit and just about everything he sent up to the plate ended up in the stands.

Muhammad All and Wilt Chamberlain by the National Black Sports Hall of Fame on Sept. 10.

The announcement caught Ealey by surprise. He heard about it at a Ticat workout. "I didn't know anything about said the 23-year-old quarter- back. "It's the first I've heard about it." Ticat general manager Ralph Sazio said Ealey's leadership qualities had been evident to the Hamilton organization since he was a junior at Toledo. don'l care what kind of competition it was, everything is Sazio said, "Just as the pitcher is about 75 per cent of baseball, the quarter- back is the rnost important man on a football team.

He simply had to trot around the bases, as did most other National League home-run hitters Friday: Chris Speier, Johnny Bench, Gene Hi- ser, Adrian Garrett and a quin- tet of Atlanta Braves. But Pete Rose really had to hustle. "Charlie as Rose's Cincinnati team-mates call him, was at it again Friday night, living up to the nickname with a seventh-inning, inside-the- park home run that broke up a scoreless battle with San Diego. A couple of minutes later, Bench hit one of those ordinary, over-the-wall types, a three-run shot, to lock up the Reds' 4-0 victory over the Padres. In other league games, San Francisco Giants bombarded Houston Astros 14-3, Chicago Cubs downed New York Mets 4- 3 in 10 innings, Los Angeles Dodgers outlasted Atlanta Braves 12-9 in 12 innings, Pitts- burgh Pirates shut out Montreal Expos 4-0 and St. Louis Cardi- n a 1 s nipped Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 in 10 innings. TOO MANY COOKS? When Rose unloaded a shot toward right-centre field, right fielder Clarence Gaston took off in hot Jerry Mo- rales tore over from centre. "I was running, and I was gonna keep running until I saw Mm catch the Rose said of Gaston. "When I saw the ball hit the wall and carom towards centre, I knew I had at least three." Bonds bad pinch-hit only about three times in his previous major league season! before stepping into the for the Giants in the seventh inning with Houston leading 3-1. The San Francisco bomber unleashed his 20th homer of the season, a grand slam. "I hit better with somebody on he explained. "I concentrate more when I sea runners in scoring position." The Giants weren't finisbed. In the ninth inning they poured I nine runs across the end- "ing with Speier's two-run homer. HOMERS CRUCIAL Garrett homered to give Chi- cago a 2-1 lead over the Mets in the seventh inning. Then man- ager Whitey Lockman replaced him with ffiser, who proceeded to hit a game-tying homer, his first in the majors. In the bottom of the 10th, the Cubs loaded the bases and Jose Cardenal dropped the Mets deeper in the East Division cel- lar with a game-ending single to keep Chicago first in the East by eight solid games. Atlanta belted five home runs, including Hank Aaron's 20th of the season and 693rd of his career. But the Dodgers, games ahead of San Francisco in the West, had more dutch hits. "We never gave said Bill Russell, who put Los Angeles ahead to stay with a two-run single and later scampered home on Chris Cannizzaro's hit.
