Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 4-THE LETHBRIDQE May Think Earlyt Think New to MM MM to tor IN HAWAI11974 ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MAIL PHONE 321-9101 Pat Sullivan The manager of the controversial Oakland Athletics of the American Baseball League is not the only thing dark about the world champions. and according to bunches of are sating away at Alvin Dark and his ball club. One apparently the major is Charles 0. Finley. Joe who once told me playing baseball for the Finley- Dwned Athletics was like having Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as your was the first of many Athletics to voice his displeasure with the way things are being run this season. The dissension ball got one has to when Finley allowed manager Dick Williams to leave. Williams was Fed up with the A's front not the players. He asked if he talk with the New York Yankees and Finley said only to abruptly change his mind. Word was reported from prior to this year's Dpening that Finley had a chance to get Williams but would have nothing to do with it. The fact that who guided the A's to back-to-back World Series titles the past two is not coming has had nothing to do with this year's troubles. besides being an outstanding baseball is a very proud young athlete. get paid very well for playing he will tell you. that's what I want to Rudi was pulled from the game in the seventh inning a victim of Finley's latest experiment a designated runner. That was the end of Rudi's patience. He wants to play nine innings of every game. When they take him out of a game for a he feels-it makes him look like half a ball player. Dark's pitching staff had three 20-game winners last year. This says Ken the only 20-game winners will be Rollie Fingers and Darold Knowles. Both Knowles and Fingers are relievers. Holtzman's beef is that he was taken from a game in the fifth inning after giving up one run. Vida who can raise enough controversy was also given the hook in the fifth inning of a after one the next day. Rumblings from Blue Moon Holtzman and Catfish Hunter would indicate the only way for an Oakland starter to finish a game would be to pitch a shutout. If that isn't there is more. There is the Battle of the Batting as the Great Shoe Revolt. Sal captain of the was upset because he had been moved to sixth in the batting order and Rudi into Bando's spot. Bando complained bitterly and the old switcheroo took place But the shoe debate has to take the cake. a self-made has signed a contract with Adidas. But superstar Reggie Jackson has a contract with the bitter rival of Adidas. Finley ordered Dark to tell the players that they would wear Adidas or be benched without pay. Apparently the only difference between the two brands of white shoes is that Adidas has three vertical stripes and Puma a horizontal wing. Management said anyone wearing Pumas would be out of uniform That explain why nothing was said last year when a few A's wore Pumas. rule management referred to regarding uniform reads All players on a team shall wear uniforms identical in style and Before the opening game of the in another unexplained acting on orders from told the players to wear any shoes they wanted. Five players took to the field in and Blue in his usual Riddells. And after Jackson went with two doubles and a Finley said he could play barefoot.

But why the Says you see brown all with a green With this kind of dissension the A's seem assured of at least a if not a World Series wouldn't you They seem to thrive on controversy.

Bruins' attitude bothers Bep no regulars show for optional practice PHILADELPHIA Coach Bep Guidolin of Boston Bruins says he is troubled by the attitude of some of his players toward their Stanley Cup final against Philadelphia Flyers. But Guidolin isn't ready to concede the cup to the West Division National Hockey League champions. The Flyers hold a 2-1 lead going into tonight's fourth game of the best of seven game that will be televised nationally in Canada by the CBC beginning at p.m. MDT. we win the hockey game we'll win the Guidolin said Monday. won't beat us again in A Boston victory here would reduce the series to a best-of- three with the fifth and seventh a seventh is the Bruins home ice. But while he was expressing his theories on what a victory in the fourth game would do for his Guidolin was visibly upset by a couple of other factors. One was the fact that none of his regulars showed up for an practice Monday after losing 4-1 to the determined Flyers here Sunday afternoon. Only 10 players and only two of centre Andre Savard and defenceman Darryl played Sunday. only guys I didn't want to see there were Orr and Guidolin said. Guidolin said that during the semi-final series against Chi- cago Black Hawks and with the Bruins trailing 2-1 in he had called a similar workout after the second Boston and all his players had shown. Guidolin also said he was upset by the current slump of all-star centre Phil Esposito against the Flyers. While he has eight goals in 13 playoff Esposito has scored only one of those against Philadelphia. Asked if he could explain his sudden Esposito has re- turned all queries with a brusque Two slowpitch matches held A pair of clubs picked up victories in Commercial Men's Slowpitch League action Monday night. In one Bock dropped Wickes Warriors 16- 11 while in the other the Lethbridge Fire Department dumped Safeway Streakers Guidolin was asked if the big centre was hurt. Only his the coach replied. The Boston coach said the Flyers went all stop Orr in Sunday's game and Phila- delphia coach Fred Shero said the Philadelphia club had ac- complished the task by leaning on the all-star defenceman. certain players don't do their job properly everything goes on one Guidolin said. if the big line is there is no way they are going to be on Boston's big line is centred by Esposito with Ken Hodge Barry Ashbee can only sit and hope PHILADELPHIA Defenceman Barry Ashbee of Philadelphia Flyers said Mon- day all he can do is wait to see if the vision in his injured right eye will return to near- normal and permit him to play in the National Hockey League again. Ashbee watched his team from the stands as they de- feated Boston Bruins 4-1 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup final. He was struck in the right eye by a puck during an April 28 semi-final game with New York Rangers. Doctors allowed him to attend Sunday's game on the condition that he be protected from being bumped or jostled by the crowd. He watched the game from the private box of Ed the Flyers' board chairman. can see out of both of the but I can't see directly in front of said the 35- year-old defenceman. just a waiting game two days it really bothered Ashbee said his injury. didn't let anybody but I lay there all day so I couldn't help but think about it. most important thing now is getting sight back in the eye.

I'm sure I'm going to play again. I'd be crazy to quit. I felt better this year than I have the last three or four years because things like the all-star team happened to me this year that never happened and Wayne Cashman on the wings. Guidolin said the Bruins must respect the opposition because the Flyers have sound coaching and a a guy who coached in the minors and was a success and his players be- lieve in him. It shows you don't need an abundance of just a bunch of guys ready to work In sharp contrast to the the Flyers held a stiff hour-long workout Monday. All the Philadelphia players were on although centre Bobby Clarke and goaltender Bernie Parent did not dress for the practice. Parent said that while he and Clarke often are excused from workouts come anyway and sometimes we have a At the annual Stanley Cup luncheon the Bruins were while the Flyers attended. Both coaches said a few words to the gathering. nice to see the Phila- delphia Flyers here was Guidolin'g wry comment. my players at the race Shero professes surprise when anyone finds it's hard to believe a so-called expansion team can be leading the series against the powerful Bruins. don't consider this team an expansion the coach said. told the players at the start of the season I didn't want to hear the word mentioned Guidolin refused to use the Flyers' home ice as an excuse for Sunday's defeat.

Heavy snow which caused widespread flooding in recent also has delayed agricultural activity and reduced spring burning. If spring rains there should be high production from nests in stubble. The conservation organization says pintails and mallards already are incubating and preliminary reports indicate a good return to the prairies. The only dry area reported is Southern Alberta but birds overflew this area to more favorable conditions in the north. In British waterfowl conditions are improved generally but nesting is slightly later than usual. Softballers need help The Lethbridge minor softball program is still in need of volunteer help. Some 200 girls have registered for the summer but only a handful of adults have expressed their interest in helping it get onto its feet. Thus the summer program will carry at least four squirt teams and two pee wee teams in north Lethbridge along with an undetermined number of teams in south Lethbridge. More help is needed to form a solid league in the 13-17 age group and if anyone is interested in coaching a bantam or midget club may do so by contacting Ms. Marilyn Snedden. Meanwhile if a county team wishes to join either the bantam or midget they should also contact Ms. Snedden as soon as possible. The league openers are tentatively slated for May 28 with games held every Tuesday and Thursday nights thereafter.
