Stampeders Sign Pair CALGARY (CP) -Calgary Stampeders of the Western Foot- ball Conference today announc- ed the signing of two new im- wrts, quarterback Jerry Hend- erson and offensive guard Fred Alvarez. Henderson, a six-foot, 190- xmnder from Washington State Jniversity, attended the Stamp- eders' training camp in 1969 nit then had to spend six months in the United States Armed Forces. He was invited o return in 1970. Alvarez is a six-footer from Utah State University- who has ilso used his 240 pounds incbacker. Calgary now has signed 27 .ilnyers for the 1970 season, in- luding six veterans, im- and eight MD-importe. A1 It will be strengthened team against strengthened team nex Wednesday when the Leth iridge Crighton Cubs tangle with the Lethbridge Junior Min- ers in the opening game in the City Recreation Baseball League. Both the Cubs and the Miners have benefitted from the Leth- bridge Flyers and the Leth- bridge Alexandra Monarchs folding their operations. Cubs have a vastly improved pitching staff over last year's club which finished second in the league's regular seaso standings. Is 1969, the Cubs relied heav- ily on the right arm of fire- balling Greg Lazaruk. This should not be the case in 1970. Righthander Andy Shorthouse may be the biggest addition to the Cubs' mound corps. Shorthouse last season threw strikes for the Calgary Giants in the tough Alberta Major Baseball League and had a more than respectable season. Also in the Cubs' camp are a pah- of ex Flyers, Dennis King and Merv Shankland. King was the ace for the Fly- ers last season while coach Ooug Frier feels that Shanfc- land's experience should rub off on the other pitchers. John Petrunia is the other hurler attending Cub workouts and Frier will likely give him bis share of the pitching load. Frier has only five othei1 players, besides Lazaruk, from last year's team turning out for workouts. They are catcher Glenn Wyrostok, infielders Jim Campbell and Bill Persley, out- fielder Howie Heggedal and utility-man John Vaselenak. Others attending workouts are catcher Bruce Gullett, who hails from Edmonton, infield- ers Tony Sutcliffe and Athol Thomas, and infielder out- fielders Bill Kenney, Hob Rut- ton and Cal O'Brien. Frier, to say the least, is op- timistic about his club's chances of finishing on top of the eight- team league at the end of the season. Equally as opttm 1 s t i c, and rightly so, are manager Jack Kerr and coach Barry Golberg of the Miners. The Miners have also bolster- ed their pitching staff as they have added Craig Simmons, Rod Taylor, Don Hildebrand and Tim Negrello to their two holdovers, Randy Wolstoncroft and Randy Maxwell. Simmons and Taylor join the iliners from the Flyers while Hildebrand comes from Taber and Negrello was used a great deal last year by the Monarchs. Four other Flyers have join- ed the Miners' ranks which, in (self, should improve the club. Hard hitting third-baseman lob Roy heads the list while Sob Turner, who was one of be league's top outfielders and steadiest hitters last season also will help. Infielder Ron Berlando and outfielder catcher Don Diet- zen are the other two ex-Fly- ers attending workouts. Doug Yorgasonj John Moly-[ neux and Wayne Nielson have been battling it out for the catcher's job. Yorgason was the team's regular catcher last year. Other players from last year's club are Frank Gnandt, Cam Burr, Robin Ondrick, Bill Kerr, Mel Zatylny and Rick Campbell. Manager1 Jack Kerr mention- ed that he was looking more to whining the Alberta junior championship than to taking the league. However Ire also felt that the Miners were strong enough to make the playoffs and that they may even give it a run for top spot. "We've got good Kerr added. Cubs and Miners tangle at eight o'clock at Henderson Park. Othei- teams In the league the defending champion Vulcan Giants, Brooks Lions, Milk River, Enchant Red SOT and newcomers Taber and Pincber Creek.
