Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 LETHBRIDfiE HERALD May 1974 Hill head new junior team By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Lethbndge. baseball fans will have a new team to cheer for this season with the arrival of junior baseball on the local scene. The Lethbridge Junior Miners will participate in the south division of the new Alberta Junior Baseball League. This is the initial year of operation for the which is the first attempt at organized junior baseball in Alberta in some time. The league is for boys between the ages of 16 and 22 and so provides an intermediate level between the minor baseball network and the Alberta Major Baseball League. Former AMBL Commissioner Russ Parker has been selected to head the giving it some of the administrative experience needed for the league to be a success. The southern division will be composed of two Calgary as well as teams from High Medicine Hat and Lethbridge. The who will operate out of Henderson are managed by Ted who has been active in Lethbridge baseball cricles for several years at the Pony and Big League levels. Hill will get help from former Lethbridge Laker manager Doug Frier. Frier will hold down the coaching position with the team. The AJBL schedule opens May 24 and will run into mid-July. Following regular season there will be a round-robin tournament to decide the south division champion. The winning team will then play off against the north division champ for the Alberta Junior title and a berth in the Canadian finals. Coach Frier is excited about the arrival of this league in Lethbridge. He feels that it is a shame that boys who are finished Senior Little have in the had nowhere to play in the city unless they can make the Lakers' team. even this team will not provide opportunities for all the boys who are interested. Frier is of the opinion that Lethbridge needs a city league at the junior age level. But it is very hard to get this type of thing off the ground. parents are interested and willing to help out while their kids are playing Little League says Frier. once the boys reach a certain the interest seems to This makes the organization of a city league very difficult and deprives many boys of the opportunity to continue participation in a sport which they enjoy. real shame is that if a boy sits out for a he tends to lose interest in the game. You lose a lot of talented ballplayers this way If there are boys in Lethbridge who enjoy baseball enough to spend their spare time at and the opportunity is not they may wind up devoting free hours to less socially desirable activities Perhaps the Lethbridge Junior Miners will provide the necessary stimulus for organized baseball for 16 to 22- year olds at the local level. At any Coach Frier reports that about 35 players have been showing up for the early workouts. most of the positions are still up for grabs and all interested boys are invited to come out. Manager Hill stresses that the team is not restricted to Lethbridge city the invitation is extended to all of southern Alberta. The Miners will practice tonight and Friday at the Henderson with both workouts going at six o'clock. They will hit the field again on Sunday morning at 10 Sports of all sorts Lethbrio'ge's Len Frig moves in to help Frig looked sharp as Hawks ousted Success no surprise to Sheppard CHICAGO Gregg Sheppard can't account for his new-found scoring but it's not surprising to him that he's suddenly overshadowing more highly-regarded team- mates.
