Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, May 19, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Taylor likes ivhat he sees Lakers will be ready for Tuesdays opener By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor "If you don't win the first game, you can't win them all." With that as his philosophy, Eon Taylor sets out this week- end to round his Lethbridge Lakers into shape for the open- ing of the Alberta Major Base- ball League Tuesday evening. Lakers, under Taylor, meet Calgary Giants in the lid-lifter at Henderson Park at eight c'clcek Tuesday and Taylor is looking for a quick start for his charges. "Right now, we'll concern ourselves with fielding a team for Tuesday." says Taylor. "Then we'll get down to funda- mentals." You need only to ask the big guy from Toronto via the San Diego Padres of the National Baseball League, and he will tell you, "we'll have a good, en- tertaining ball club." Taylor emphasizes hustle on his club. Despite the fact this is his first real taste of manag- ing, Taylor oozes confidence in his ability to handle the second- year Lakers. He wouldn't be here if he didn't think he could do the job. The Lakers are awaiting four players from Gonzaea Univer- sity in Spokane, Washington. There is still no word on wheth- er they will be here in time for the home opener. But that doesn't seem to concern Taylor as much as one would think. "Certainly, I would like to see them here, but I'm more than impressed with what I have seen of tne local states Taylor. Taylor gave his club the night off Friday. He worked with the club tour nights in succession and feels "they'll be just fine." The nucleus of last year's rookie Lakers is back so Taylor has talent to work with, with the likes of Rob Roy, Wayne Com- modore, pitchers Al Ferchuk and Randy Maxwell as well as Tim Negrello and Ken Naka- ma. Also imnressive has been the work of Jerry Veres. "I like his says Taylor "I think he will be alright." The Lakers have landed one of the finest hitters the Sas- katchewan Baseball Leagues ever produced in Bob Brown. With Brown, Roy and Commo- dore the Lakers have more than enough power at the plate. With the arrival of Lenn Sakata and Tom Foster both of whom are hitting well over 300 at Gonzaga, Taylor will be able to spend a great deal of his time v.it11 his pitchers. Paul Sullivan, the Lakers got from Toronto be- cause of Taylor, probably said it best when he described work- More sport on page 14 ing with Taylor would be like having your own pitching coach. While Taylor's main concern in the success of the Lakers, he also will do some scouting for the Padres, after all he says "this is now Padre Country." "I want to work with young- sters as Taylor indicated, "I'll get around to some minor baseball games and we'll set up some clinics." His time, Taylor will tell you, belongs to ball in Lethbridge and baseball couldn't be in better hands. Taylor pitched over 500 games in his 10-year major League career. In Lethbridge. he'll simply pitch batting prac- tice. The Lakers' new boss is here to manage. The Laker officials couldn't be happier. And like Taylor said Friday when asked if the baseball would be good? "Just be at the ball park, you'll see some great baseball played." f, i''- A ,'f 'w Flying high TENNIS CLOTHES RACQUETS SHOES SP ALDING GOLF CLUBS AND BALLS McGREGOB O Q_ V> a o m LU 3 O u Of to ui U CO Z LU GOTSCHNA SKI HAUS Super Summer Sale WHEN WINTER IS OVER WHAT SHOULD A SKI HAUS SELL?
