Now it's just des- ignated hitter in American League baseball and there's no more designated pinch hitter.

Len Frig, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Frig of Leth- bridge and a former stand- out with the Sugar Kings of the AJberta Junior Hocksy League, saw action in his first National H o c ke y League game Thursday.

Thej along came MacFar- lane. I may have over-reacted to his remarks but they uncalled for. Marshall had just given credit where cre- dit was due. He said that Frig showed poise in block- ing Mahovlich's shot and that the young man was in a pretty tough spot in his first NHL game. How does MacFarlane ans- "He almost gave the puck away en his first shift on the ice you'll recall.'1 Who cares unless he aclual- ly did give it away, which he didn't. If it had been a Montreal rookie who had made the play we would have seen five or six replays and MacFarlane would have expounded at great length at the excellent play. All other things, big or small, would have been forgotten. I'm sure Frig didn't hear the remark. Even if he did, it would have had little effect on him. But it did gripe me.
