Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta, May 2, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Medicine Hat club underdogs Shupe says Tigers ready and he means for anything MEDICINE HAT (CP) Tough, talented and con- troversial are the Medicine Hat Tigers who will represent the West this season in the Me- morial Cup final. Medicine Hat earned the honor by defeating Edmonton Oil Kings in the Western Divi- sios 'final of the Western Can- ada Junior Hockey League, and conquering Saskatoon Blades, Eastern Division champions, in the final., Their victory march was dot- ted with disputes. They led the league in penalty minutes and had Bob Gassoff and Jim McCrimmon tagged as hatchet- men throughout most of the leagua. During the best-of-seven final series with Saskatoon, McCrimmon and one of the owners, Rod Carey, were dis- ciplined by the league's execu- tive for their part in a brawl% Carey was asked to post a 000 bond and McCrimmon was fined far receiving a minor penalty, misconduct and game misconduct in the same game, the second of the series which Medicine Hat won in five games. The Tigers posted one of the bsst home-ice records in the league and used their advan- tage well in defeating Calgary Centennials, Edmonton and Sas- katoon in the playoffs. They fin- ished second, one point behind Edmonton, in the Western Divi- sion during the regular season, then had little difficulty witih any club in the playoffs. LOTS OF TALENT It's almost too easy to con- sider Medicine Hat as a big, tough club without over- whelming nothing could be further from the truth. Centre Tom Lysiak and right winger Lanmy McDonald were named to the WCHL all-star team and Lysiak won the league's scoring title for the second year in a row. McDonald was tMrd, Boyd Virdon didn't get to see Bonds sink his Pirates By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Manager Bill Virdon of Pitts- burgh Pirates got some bad news Tuesday night and then he got some worse news. First the bad news: Virdon was ejected by umpire Doug Harvey with the bases loaded and two out in the bottom cf the ninth inning for protesting ball- aBd-strike calls. Now the worse news: With Virdon en route to the club- Bobby Bonds slammed a three-run double that capped a seven-run explosion and lifted San Francisco Giants to a stun- ning 8-7 National League base- ball triumph over the slumping Pirates. Elsewhere in the league, Chi- cago Cubs trounced Los Angeles Aaron struggles for base hits ATLANTA (AP) Hank Aa- ron is doing what comes natu- home runs, but little of anything else. The Atlanta Braves' slugger has drilled five home runs so far in the young baseball sea- son, but has added only two other hits as he struggles at an anemic .125 pace. Manager Eddie Malhews, however, remains confident that his 39-year-old superstar, who trails Babe Ruth's all-time home run mark of 714 by just 36, will snap out of it. "There's no difference in the way he's swinging the Matthews says. "I don't know what the trouble is. He's hit the home runs but has only two other hits. He's been hitting better than that but the teams are playing a shift on him, taking away about a half-dozen hits. ONLY 7-FOR-56 Aaron's production after 20 games, prior to Tuesday night's contest against Montreal, shows seven hits in 56 at-bats. in- cluding nine runs scored and eight runs batted in. The Braves need a hot bat and Aaron could be the spark. The club has only seven vic- tories in 20 starts, dropping eight of 10 decisions to left- handed pitchers. "I don't know the Mathews says. "If Hank could get hot or anyone else for that matter. But nobody has." Mathews says Aaron "never shows emotion, but I'm sure it's bothering him inside" Asked if Aaron, who owns a .311 lifetime average after 19 major league seasons, was swinging at bad pitches, Math- ews said. "Not any more than usual. He's sitting back and get- ting walks The only place where he's slowed down, is in his running. "He's liable to snap out of it any time. If I remember right, he's a slow starter anyway. I don't even remember him get- ting off to a super start." Dodgers 9-5, Montreal Expos outslugged Atlanta Braves 9-6 despite a pair of home runs by Hank Aaron, Houston Astros blanked Philadelphia Phillies 3- 0 as Jerry Reuss outdueled Steve Carlton and San Diego Padres pounded St. Louis Cardi- nals 10-5. The New York Mets and Cincinnati Reds were not scheduled. Milwaukee's John Briggs re- membered the one hit he man- aged against Oakland's Blue Moon Odom last season. He'll also remember the two hits he walloped off the Athletics' right- hander Tuesday night. Briggs, who earlier had ex- pressed concern over his lack of runs batted in, hit a three-run triple and then belted a game- winning home run in the ninth as the Brewers defeated the A's 4-3 Tuesday night and moved into first place in the American League East. "I had been getting my hits with nobody on base or I'd wind up sending someone from first to second or something like Briggs said. "But I fig- ured it's a long season and I'd start getting some RBIs even- tually. "I think I got one hit off Odom last Briggs said. "We haven't gotten to see him very much but I saw him enough tonight." In other American League games, California Angels whip- ped Detroit Tigers 6-2, Texas Rangers edged Boston Red Sox 7-6, New York Yankees crushed Kansas City Royals 6-1 and Chi- cago White Sox beat Baltimore Orioles 6-5. Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins were rained out at Bloomington, Minn. Anderson 10th and Ed John- stone 16th, each with more than 100 points. Bob Gaseoff led the league in penalties with a record 388 min- utes, far more than the old mark of 333 set by Craig Reich- muth of Flin Flon, now a mem- ber of New York Raiders of the World Hockey Association, in the 1967-68 season. Lysiak and McDonald also es- tablished themselves as brilliant penalty killers. Partly because of their style of play, the Tigers have looked shaky defensively at times, de- spite the presence of one of three bruising brothers on the McCrimmon, a rugged 215-pounder who stands McCrimmon has attended training camp wifch Edmonton Eskimos of the Western Foot- ball Conference and is consid- ered an pro grid prospect, but he says he ex- pects to turn pro with either the National Hockey League or the WHA because hockey pays more. DEFENDS GOALIES Coach Jack Shupe, accused by rivals many times of in- structing his team to play dirty hockey, said during the final with Saskatoon that his goalten- ders. Jerry Thomas and Sam Clegg, had been unfairly ma- ligned. Clegg came from Saska- toon by way of Victoria to join the Tigers this year and has provided outstanding support for Thomas in the playoffs. Throughout the season, Shupe said his club would be more dangerous in playoffs and that's tfi'3 way it wonted out. Now, he's convinced, the Ti- gers have a chance to go all the way, although they allowed 254 goals in the regular season while scoring 348, most in the league. "Now that our goaltending is in shape, we're as good as any- he says. He accepts no suggestion that his rough-and-ready Tigers will find it difficult entering a for- eign lair during the Memorial Cup round-robin against Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Junior Hockey League and the winner of Toronto and Peterborough in the Ontario Hockey Association final. The Tigers played Russia, Czechoslovakia and the United States during the Christmas layoff in an exhibition series in the United States. They defeated the United States 3-2 but lost 5-1 to the Czechs and 12-3 to the powerful Russians. Shupe makes it clear that experience of that type has left his club ready for any- a Memorial Cup final. Argonauts can't comply Stillwagon asks for plenty TORONTO (CP) Towonto Argonauts expect all-star defen- sive tackle Jim, Stillwagon will play out his option this year and move to Green Bay Pack- ers. Stillwagon has left Toronto and is working out in Kentucky. John Bassett, chairman of the Eastern Football Conference club, said Stillwagon went to see him after negotiations with general manager John Barrow broke down. Stillwagon told Bassett that Barrow had refused to present his demands to the board of di- decision endorsed by Bassett when he heard what Stillwagon was asking.

Stillwagon also asked for 1.000 shares of Baton Broadcasting stock. Baton is the parent com- pany which controls the Bassett television, football and allied in- terests. It is listed on the To- ronto Stock Exchange and has been trading in the range. Bassett declined to discuss specific salary details, but it is understood Stilwagon wants about a year in a multi- year contract. "There is absolutely no hard feeling between me and Mr. Bassett said. "I had told the players my door was always open to members of the club who had a particular problem. He merely availed himself of that privilege. He's a fine person, and I couldn't see my way clear to meet his re- quests." WON'T TAKE CUT Bassett said he told Stillwa- gon he was fortunate in that the Argonauts do not deduct the usual 10 per cent from the salary of a man playing out his option. Bassett also said there is a strong possibility that quarter- back Joe Theismann will play out his option. "I have only an inkling of what Joe's demands Bas- sett said: "But Theismann is an aggressive, competent individ- ual. "There is a strong indication he wants to test himself in the National Football League. For that reason we may lose him after he plays out his option. "We're going to sign him if we can, but we are not pre- pared to give him an arm and a leg." Theismann is the property of Miami Dolphins in the NFL. PEOPLE ARE GOIN' T1 IT BOTHERS ME!

Pro fastball questioned SASKATOON (CP) -Teams from the newly-formed Ontario Fastball League and the West- ern Major Fastball League should be prevented from par- ticipating in the Canadian ama- teur softball championships, Bob Lacoursiere said today, j Lacoursiere, coach of Medal- lions in the Saskatoon Ssnior Men's Fastball League, said in a news release that whether Gas city mayor issues challenge MONTREAL (CP) Harry Viener, mayor of Medicine Hat, issued a challenge T u e s- day to the mayors of Toronto, Peterborough, Ont., and Quebec City to a walking race on the ice of the Montreal Forum prior to the first game of the Me- morial Cup May 7. Mayor Venier issued the chal- lenge through Gordon Juckes. executive director of the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Associ- ation. In a telegram to Juckes, Mayor Venier said: "Would you please extend a challenge on my behalf to the Mayors of Toronto or Peterborough and Quebec City and their aldermanic represen- tatives to a walking race on ice at the Forum prior to the first game May 7.

Quebec Remparts and the Ti- gers already have won entry to the Memorial Cup representing the Western Canada Hockey League and the Quebec Major Junior A Hockey League, re- spectively. The Ontario representatives will be either Peterbrough Petes or Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Association. These two teams currently are playing off in an eight-point series with Peterborough lead- ing 5-3 in the points bracket. EARNS A BERTH LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Martin J. Wygod's Settecento charged up in the final strides Tuesday for a narrow victory in the Derby Trial Stakes, possibly earning him- self a start in Saturday's 99th Kentucky Derby. teams in the two new leagues are called amateurs or profes- sionsals is "Some players obviously are receiving remuneration in var- ious forms and some of the sponsorships could certainly be classed as commercial ven- he said. "With budgets as high as a team, one has to stretch the imagination to con- clude that these individuals or companies are investing their money only because they love softball.'' Lacoursiere said the princi- ple of the two leagues was good for both players and fans but only the larger centres could operate on such a large scale. The Canadian Amateur Soft- ball Association "has the re- sponsibility to assure that the Canadian senior championship does not become a highly com- mercialized event available only to a few teams. "It would be unrealistic to expect the average senior team which operates on a budget from to to be com- petitive in such a champion- he said. "Most of the travel money is provided by a grant from, the fitness and amateur sport di- rectorate and this assistance should not be going to com- mercial enterprisers." Lacoursiere called on the CASA and the provincial fast- ball associations to make their position clear immediately so that all fans of the sport would know where they stand. Derby may be fastest LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Top speed horses like Shecky Greene and Royal and Regal and quality finishers such as Secretariat and Sham are ex- pected to make the 99th Ken- tucky Derby one of the fastest. "The way everybody is work- ing, the race will be run In close to two Lucien Laurir., the Canadian trainer of favored Secretariat said Tues- day. The Derby and Churchill Downs track record lor 1U miles is by Northern Dancer in 1964. A field of 15 three-year-olds was shaping up and if that many start, Saturday's Derby would be the richest, with 300 to the winner. SPEED HORSE DANGEROUS "With so much speed you don't know What's going to hap- said Laurin. "One of the speed horses might forget to stop." Carter Thornton, trainer of stretch-running Restless Jet, concurred: just hope one of those speed horses don't just keep go- ing. It happened with Jet Pi- lot." In 1947 Jet Pilot broke on the lead and stayed there instead of fading to win by a head over the fast-finishing Phalanx. Besides Shecky Greene and Royal and Regal, other front runners expected in the Derby field were Knightly Dawn and Angle Light owned by Ed Whittaker of Toronto. Knightly Dawn will run as part of a Sigmund Sommer- owned entry with Sham, who won the Santa Anita Derby in a sizzling for 1's miles. GOOD STRETCH RUNNER Angle Light, the front-running winner of the Wood Memorial over Sham and Secretariat, will run as part of Laurin-trained entry with Secretariat, Meadow Stable's 1972 Horse of the Year who is capable of explosive moves in the stretch.
