Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta f - THI UTHSRIDOE HERALD - Tustday, March 9, 1971 ---- Pirates continue to sail along in exhibition play Bailey feels Expos should be much-improved ball club this year WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CP) - Bob Bailey, the last of the Expos to sign his 1971 contract, feeJs that the Montreal entry in baseball's National League should be a much improved team this season. Bailey, who wound up the 1970 season with a .287 batting average, signed his contract Feb. 26 ending a brief but stubborn holdout. Although he would not reveal the exact amount of his contract, it was estimated to be around $40,000. "Let's just say I'm glad to be back and I'm sure this club is in for a much better season," said Bailey. "As for pitching, Dan McGinn and Bill Stoneman have great potential along with finely-developing youngsters. "With the all-round improvement in the club, I would say it is not out of the question that we can finish fourth or even third." The Expos finished last in the six-team East Divsion last season. Bailey appeared in 131 games last season and used a batting splurge from July 1 to Aug. 6 to carry him to his best season in the major leagues. During that 37-day span, the Long Beach, Calif., native batted .430 and 12 of his 37 hits were ,home runs. I Along with his .287 average, he hit 28 homers and had 84 runs batted in. Bailey can play third base, first base and left field for the Expos. He replaced Coco Laboy at third base during his hot streak last year. Bailey was signed on June 16, 1961 as a bonus baby by Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League. Things never got rolling for him at Pittsburgh and in 1966 he was traded to Los Angeles Dodgers in a deal for Maury Wills. He was sold to Expos just after the expansion draft in 1968. The one-two punch of Dave Cash and Richie Hebner battered Detroit Tigers as Pittsburgh Pirates continued to flatten all comers after four days of spring training exhibition games. Hebner slammed a pair of home runs, each after Cash had singled opening up a 4-0 Pittsburgh lead after four innings and the Pirates coasted to their fourth straight win of the spring Monday, 9-3 over the Tigers. Hebner, the young hard-hitting third baseman, batted .290, in his sophomore season last year while Cash, expected to share the second base spot with veteran Bill Mazeroski this year, belted at a .316 clip last year with Pittsburgh.
