"I was chasing him around the horise and stubbed my toe. uasn't ready to play defence, so they made me (lie designated hitter." Aging Twins' slugger Karmoa Killebrew, in town but still un- signed, is expected to be a hot candidate for the spot when the regular season begins. It had been announced by baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn that the designated hitter would be used only when two American League clubs were playing during spring training. The American League begins Ihrce-year trial of (he rule in April while (he National Leag- uers continue by the old book. There will be no designated bit- ter in the World Series or all- star games. It's not fair, playing nine men against said Bill Vir- don, manager of the Pirates. "But it doesn't really matter lhat much during spring (rain- ing." It still appears to be up m the air as to whether American Leaguers will use the desig- nated hitter against opponents from the National League dur- ing future games this spring.

A spokesman for the Twins said several American League clubs had decided tlwy would not gel a sufficient test of the new rule this spring unless they employed it against some Na- tional League teams. He said the Twins planned lo use it in all home games during the Grapefruit League season. Minnesota plays another Ameri- can League club, the New York Yankees, in a game today at Tinker Field. Has one loo nwny catchers Mauch having problems AL MCNEIL DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (CP) Manager Gene Mauch hss predicted h i s Montreal Expos will open tlie Nalional League season carrying; only two catchers to give his younger receivers a chance to play regularly at Ihe minor league baseball. When Mauch made the state- ment it was assumed he would go with veteran John Bocca- bella, who can also play first base, and sophomore Terry Humphrey. But that was before burly Barry Foote thrust himself into the fight for a major league job. Foote, only 21 and the East- ern League's all-star catcher last season with the class AA Quebec Cily Carnavals, has Jumped into the tight for a ma- jor league job, by virtue of his lively bat. Asked Tuesday about Foote's chances of dislodging either Humphrey or Boccabella, Mauch said: "We'll know Iwo weeks from now." But the Montreal manager could not disguise the pleasure in his voice when he made the remark. HAS HOPES Foote, a six-fool, three-inch, 200-pound native of Smithfieltl, N.C., is built like a football full- back. He plays baseball with confidence and what he lacks in experience, lie tries to over- come with bustle. Unlike some of the other rookies here, Foote is anxious to make the big jump to the majors this season, rather than spend another year gaming ex- perience with a minor affiliate. Karl Kuehl, the. Carnavals' manager, said it is difficult to get a clear picture of Foote's DOMTAR ASPHALT SHINGLES 210 Ib. Bdle.............
