Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saturday, May 12, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCI HERALD IS May berry can hit Twins learn their lesson By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS After 19 games, Minnesota Twins have finally learned how to pitch to John very carefully. The Kansas City slugger con- tinued to wreck the Minnesota Twins with a home run, triple and single Friday night that powered the Royals to a 6-2 American League baseball vic- tory. "I just go up there to said Mayberry, whose three runs batted in gave Mm 27 against Minnesota in the last 19 games dating back to last year. "He has a beautiful said Kansas City manager Jack McKeon after his slugger hit his ninth home run this season. "He has the chance to be the outstanding hitter in this league. In the American League's other games, Baltimore Orioles blanked New York Yankees 3-0, Fencing Qub looking for new members Mr. Michael Johson, Chan- cellor of the Lethbridge Col- legiate Institute, is the new president of th'3 Lethbridge Fencing Club.

Boston Red Sox beat Cleveland Indians 4-2, Detroit Tigers de- feated Milwaukee Brewers 6-5, Oakland A's turned back Texas Rangers 4-3 and Chicago White Sox stopped California Angels 7- 4. Mayberry knocked in a run in the first inning to give the Roy- als a 1-0 lead, started a three- run rally in the fourth with a triple aaid then struck a two-run homer in the fifth. The home run off Bert Blyle- ven was on a fastball, said the Royals slugger. After his triple to left-centre in the fourth, the Twins put on a modified shift to left when he cams up in the fifth, but it didn't matter because May- berry put the ball out of sight. Along with Mayberry's bat- ting show, Kansas City winner Bruce Dal Canton had the sup- port of four double plays. Jim Palmer pitched a three- hitter and Ellie Hendricks slugged a two-run homer as Baltimore stopped New York. Luis Tiant pitched a four-hit- ter and John Kennedy hit a two- run homer as Boston defeated Cleveland, After giving the In- dians runs in the first two in- nings on George Hendrick's sac- rifice fly and Dave Duncan's hpmsr.

WHA Blazers head for coast Cubs leading Cardinals rip Expos By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pitcher Alan Foster hadn't won a major-league baseball game in almost three years, but he mad.5 his comeback a big one Friday night. Foster, whose career faltered when he suffered torn ligamente in his shoulder in 1968, pitched a four-hatter while his St. Louis Cardinals team-mates battered five Montreal Expos pitchers in a 12-9 National League victory. In Friday's other National League games, Houston Astros defeated Cincinnati Reds 5-1, New York Mets beat Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3, Chicago Cubs edged Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 and Los Angeles Dodgers defeated San Francisco Giants 3-2. San Diego's game at Atlanta was rained out. Feeler's victory was his first complete game in the majors since July 18, 1971, and just about capped his struggle to re- turn to the majors. He'd been heralded as Los Angeles Dodgers' next super pitcher in the mid 1960s. But in 1969-70 he had a composite 13-22 record and earned-run averages of 4.37 and 4.25. So Los Angeles traded him to Cleveland, where he was 8-12 with a 4.15 ERA in 1971. Then the Indians swapped him to Cal- ifornia, and after eight games, ha found himself in the mlnori, pitching his way to an 8-8 record and a 4.25 ERA. It was during the 1972 season with Salt Lake City in the Pa- cific Coast League that Cardi- nals' personnel director Bob Kennedy got a look at him, liked what he saw and traded for him. Foster thinks the time hs spent kicking around the ma- jors and minors may helped him mature. "As a bonus baby, you think you're pretty ha said. "They have a tendency to pamper you until they find out you've got he said of the Dodgers. "You get a distorted sense ol importance. I think that might have retarded my progress. I hope IVa learned it isn't all that easy.'1 It was easy going against the in fact, that manager Red Schoer.dienst, re- ferring to the Cards' dismal 7-21 record this season, said the game was "just like going to the bank and getting a big loan without any collateral." Pattison has club, needs rink More sport 011 page 23 VANCOUVER fCP) Mil- lionaire industrialist Jim Patti- son bought himself a hockey team Friday and now all he needs is an arena. Pattison, 44, who parlayed a Vancouver automobile franchise and financial acumen into a leisure-oriented conglomerate, N e o n e x International Ltd., shelled out million to pur- chase Philadelphia Blazers of the World Hockey Association. Pattison plans to move the team to Vancouver, thus setting up head-to-head competition with the established Vancouver Canucks of the rival National Hockey League, but first he must find an arena for the team. The Pacific Coliseum, home to the Canucks, is the first choice and Pattison made the initial formal step Friday in presenting an application to lease the arena for GAMES HOCKEY SCHOOLS LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA FOR BOYS 9 -15 YEARS FULLY QUALIFIED INSTRUCTORS VIC STASIUK NHL COACH (Guest Instructor) Plus other top instructors GENERAL INFORMATION 2Vi hours ice time daily Chalk talks and instructional films Hockey game on final day schcol ecch REGISTRATION FEE PER BOY CITY OF LETHBRIDGE RESIDENTS JUNE 25th 30th 9 years to 10 years AUGUST 13th 18th 11 years to 15 years SOUTHERN ALTA.

Williams said a new PXE board would have been requii-ed to renegotiate a new lease with the Canucks in any case and Pattison said the proposal he presented for his team to lease the facility offered the PNE a better deal than they now get with the Canucks. Under the proposal, the Blaz- ers would get second choice of playing dates after the Ca- nucks. Pattison had mentioned that the team might play in Seattle if no arena could be found here, but that locale seemed doubtful, with Seattle's arena dates al- ready tied up by the Totems of the Western Hockey League, a Canucks' farm team, and the Supersonics of the National Basketball Association. Pattison said the purchase was strictly personal and wasn't tied in to his other activ- ities. For the money, lie received the franchise and 28 players al- ready under contract, along with the rights to 60 protactod players. FOR SALE 24' EMPRESS MOTOR HOME Replacement Price plus.
