Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta t - THI UTHIRIDGI HIRALD - Thursday, March II, 1971 HAD HIM BUT BAIL OOT AWAY - Kansas City Royals' catcher, Ed Kirkpatrick, |uggles ball as he attempts to put the tag on New York Doesn't like what he sees at all Mets' Tim Foli Wednesday. Foli scored after tagging up on Tommie Agee's fly to left field. Umpire Jerry Dale moves in to make the call. Kasko plans to shake up his Red Sox By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Manager Eddie Kasko has located some holes in his Boston Red Sox and he's going to start darning them today. Boston's fifth straight exhibition baseball loss-this one an 8-2 one-sided affair to Houston Astros-drained the mild-man- nered Kasko of his last bit of patience Wednesday. "1 didn't see a single encouraging note all day," he said disgustedly afterwards. "I think it's time to shake them up a little." Kasko planned a squad meeting for the Sox today. So far, the main thing the Sox have been doing is exasperating their boss. Wednesday, it was pitcher Gary Peters' turn. He was rapped for eight hits and runs in five innings by the Astros, who ran their spring record to 8-4. Denis Menke cracked three hits and Cesar Cedeno drove in three runs for Houston. While Kasko's problems mounted, Los Angeles Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds continued to get encouraging performances from two unheralded rookies. Bob Darwin's eighth-inning Some stars could play in the major leagues Japanese teams made adjustment CASA GRANDE, Ark. (AP) - Japan's Lotte Orions adjusted to the weather in Arizona, where they play against United States major league teams, but they found they were better off using their own baseballs. The Orions are one of two clubs from Tokyo doing their spring training in the U.S. this year. The other is the Giants in Florida. Lotte used National League baseballs in its opening game of the spring, but found them just slightly larger. Pitcher Masaaki Kitaru explained the seams on the Japanese variety stand a little higher. In order for the visiting hur-lers to work with the same baseballs they will use when their league season opens in Japan, the U.S. teams gave permission for them to use them on defence in the spring games. Manager Wataru Nonin said through an interpreter that this visit has been very good for his team. "The weather was completely different though," he explained. "In Japan it is much cooler at this time of year. We tried practising the usual six hours, but found we had to cut the drills down to two or three hours or the players would be exhausted." Although the Orions won only one game in their first half dozen exhibitions, some of their players1 proved impressive to observers at the Arizona and California game sites. Third baseman Michiyo Arito has drawn the most notice. Ernie Banks, the all-tune star of Chicago Cubs, for instance, declared: "He's a great one." Although the 6-foot-3 Arito hasn't hit too well in the early spring games, his work afield MEN'S CUSTOM MADE HAIR PIECES Personalized and Professional Service . . .

Warriors aid playoff cause By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS San Francisco Warriors gave Cincinnati the royal runaround to stay in the running and bring the Royals to a virtual dead end. The Warriors, fighting off San Diego Rockets for the runner-up spot and a playoff berth in the National Basketball Association's Pacific Division, took command early and dumped Cincinnati 110-92 Wednesday night. The victory kept second-place San Francisco two games ahead of San Diego, a 106-99 victor over Detroit Pistons. And with only two games each to play, the Rockets' chances to catch the Warriors were virtually extinguished. By losing, the Royals stayed two games back of idle Atlanta Hawks in the Central Division. Another Cincinnati loss or a victory by the Hawks will eliminate the Royals from post-season play. In other NBA action Baltimore Bullets overhauled Cleveland Cavaliers 113-109 and Boston Celtics held off Los Angeles Lakers 112-104 indicates he could make the grade in the U.S. major leagues. Second baseman Hiro-yuki Yamazaki and outfielder Iwai Ikebe also have been impressive. George Altman, a former Chicago Cubs player and now one of two Americans on the Lotte roster, compared the Japanese brand of baseball with that of the American major leagues. NOT ENOUGH DEPTH "There is not enough depth yet for teams' to be as good because there aren't enough players. Some of the guys could play major league baseball and play it well." Altman, now 37, went to Japan because it permitted him to extend his playing career. Manager Nonin says the com-petition against American teams will be advantageous to his club and "we'd definitely like the opportunity to come back." "We can do our training faster and that is an advantage," he asserts. "I think we will be in top condition for the start of our league play." The Orions are champions of the Pacific League. The Tokyo Giants are champions of the Central League and won the Japanese World Series a year ago. The San Francisco Giants were instrumental in having Lotte train in Arizona while Los Angeles Dodgers were the club helping bring the Tokyo Giants to Florida.

Osburn now has allowed one earned run in 14 innings. Minnesota Twins absorbed a 10-1 defeat from Baltimore Orioles but got some good news off the field when outfielder Tony Oliva signed a two-year contract for between $90,000 and $95,000 this season. Bobby Grich drove in five runs for the Orioles with a pair of doubles and an infield out. Montreal Expos won their fourth straight exhibition game and third in a row against Atlanta, battering the Braves 17-5.

Just has a cold Everything is alright with champion Frazier PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Rumors were that Joe Frazier had died or was seriously ill, but the heavyweight champ wanted everyone to know neither was true. "M a n, everything's all right. Everything's cool," Frazier said Wednesday from his hospital room in a telephone conversation to comedian Joey Bishop. The conversation was being taped for NBCs Tonight show on television. Bishop, host of the show in the absence of ailing Johnny Carson, hoped to dispel the rumors and arranged for the phone call to Frazier. Bishop asked Frazier about stories saying the fighter was very ill that he would not fight again, and that he was due for a long say in St. Luke's Hospital. "They got me scared to walk the street," said Frazier. "I've got a friendly cold." ASKS ABOUT REMATCH Bishop asked Frazier if he was going to continue fighting and would have a rematch with AM. "If he wants to fight me again, I'll give him a shot," Frazier replied. At a news briefing Wednesday, Dr. James Giuffre said of Frazier's health and the possible need to quit boxing: "Physically I see no reason for his retirement." Dr. Giuffre said Frazier's appetite had improved and he was no longer being fed intravenously as he was Tuesday NHL playing calibre drops -Campbell MONTREAL (CP) - Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, admits the playing calibre of the league has diluted considerably since the start of expansion back in the 1967-68 season, but he says it is only temporary. In an address Tuesday night to the 22nd annual National Turfgrass Convention, he said the dilution was inevitable. "You can't take half a bottle of whiskey and fill it with water and have the same drink," Campbell said. He also revealed that in 1966-67, the last year before the league expanded to 12 from six teams, the average salary was $18,226. Now with 14 teams in the league the average salary is $34,991. Under expansion, the NHL attendance climbed to six million last year compared with 3.25 million in 1966-67. He said it is true the calibre of play in the old section of the league had suffered by expansion, but by the same token the calibre in the expanded section had improved. Oliva signs KINASWEICH RESIGNS SAN DIEGO (AP) - Eugene Kinasweich, president of the Western Hockey League since 1969, submitted his resignation Wednesday in order to return to the field of education, the league's board of governors announced. two-year pact MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -Tony Oliva, two-time American League batting champion, signed a two-year contract with Minnesota Twins Wednesday calling for a reported $90,000 to $95,000 the first year. The agreement apparently will carry Oliva past the $100,000 mark for the 1972 season. Oliva, AL batting champion in 1964 and 1965, has a career batting average of .311. Oliva's signing leaves only Twins right-hander Bill Zepp, the last holdout in major league baseball.

Frazier was admitted when he came to visit the hospital's drug abuse clinic and show films of his past fights. Dr. Giuffre said Frazier spoke of pressure of 190. The physician said the J7-year-old champion's blood pressure has since dropped but is still above normal. Frazier would remain in the hospital "a minimum of a week," Dr. Giuffre said. Saints triumph first game in St. Basil's drew first blood in the City Recreation Hockey League championship final as they skated to a 4-2 victory over the Labor Club last night. The two clubs displayed some fast end to end rushes for the good size crowd gathered at the Adams Ice Centre in the first game of the best of five final series. Brian Murkin lighted the fuse for the Saints as he flipped one past Ken Brown the Labor Clubs netrninder at the 19:45 mark of the first period. Bob Balazs kept things flickering connecting for his ninth marker of the play-off series early in the second frame. Pat Holder came right back a minute and some seconds later to give the Saints a quick 3-0 edge. Jerry Heck rounded put the Saints scoring for the night at the 6:50 mark of the period and allowed his club to carry a solid 4-0 margin over their opponents. Willie Golia was brilliant in the Saints' net once again and came up with some stunning saves. Al Rowntree spoiled his shutout bid at the 11:10 mark of the final 20 minutes of play while Stan Maxwell added to the; Labor Clubs' comeback attempt Just three minutes later. During the three periods of play referees Howie Yanosik and John Kobal whistled down 11 minor penalties, six to the losing Labor Club. The second game of the final series will be run-off Sunday night at 6 p.m. at the Adams Ice Centre. Palmer wants two in a row JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Arnold Palmer, hungry as ever and buoyed by recent success, will be gunning for his second consecutive victory today in the first round of the $125,000 Greater Jacksonville open golf tournament. "Winning just makes you want to win more," said Palmer, who scored the 56th victory of his incredible career last week in the Citrus Invitational. It was his second triumph of the year, pushed him to the top of the money-winning list with more than $89,000 and re-established him as a major threat in any tournament he enters. "I'm .playing reasonably well," he said. "But I'm still not putting as well as I'd like to. I'm going to have to improve in that area if I'm to continue winning." Only a handful of the top names are missing from the field that begins the 72-hole chase for the $25,000 first prize.
