Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ Wednesday, May 20, 1970 Plaintiff Appeared Nervous As Case Opened Flood Will Call On Other Players As Witnesses ANDY CAPP Race Results NEW YORK fAP) Curt Flood's witnesses in "his suit against baseball likely will in- clude other former players, a source close to the former .St. Louis Cardinal outfielder told The Associated Press today. While the source said he was unable to divulge the names of any prospective witnesses, it is assumed that any former play- ers called in support of Flood would document their dealings in baseball within the frame- work of the controversial re- serve system, which Flood is challenging hi the case being heard in U.S. District Court here. Both the the a day off today to continue to plot their strategy for the re- sumption of proceedings Thurs- day following an opening ses- sion hi which Flood testified. The onetime e a r outfielder appeared tense on the witness stand, was admonishw by Judge Irving Ben Cooper fo not answering questions prc perly and needed a baseba' bubblegum card to refresh hi memory on his own batting av erages.

Finley, owner of Oakland Athletics of profes- sional baseball, is interested in purchasing the financially- plagued Oakland Seals of the NHL. It was Hie first official confir- mation Finley was interested in the hockey team, although it had been rumored twice earlier this month. At Tuesday's NHL meeting, Campbell said Finley had "inti- mated he'd be interested if the price is right. However, it would be improper of me to discuss any further acceptability oE any applicant." Campbell said nothing could be done, however, until after May of a California Su- perior Court hearing on a suit involving the ownership of the Seals. "The Seals will remain in Oakland next added Campbell. "You can count on that." Last, Ron Dot, Hope's Image als ran. DAILY DOUBLE: SJ4.70.

Phone 327-3958 WAS a wry smile in the corner of Pat SMmbaslu's mouth Saturday evening. The Taber Civic Centre Building Fund, of which Shimbashi is the chairman, had just seen the end of its Celebrities and Sweepstakes Dinner an event which has to be termed a success. Saturday's dinner was held in an effort to raise money for the new Civic Centre and, according to Shimbashi, it did. The 'chairman figures some will be added to the fund's bank account. While the dinner committee was probably hoping for more, a three grand profit for one night's efforts isn't too bad. After a majority of .the nearly 600 people on hand had departed, I was able to talk with Shim- bashi and when the question of how many tickets and how much money was raised was asked, it was then Shimbashi chuckled. Although he didn't come right out and say it, one gathered, from between the lines of conversa- tion, that the building fund coffers are not suffering and the dinner was just an excellent way to get a lot of people out to see the work which had been put into the new Civic Centre. If this was the case, Shimbashi and his mates were successful. They have an outstanding complex and I can get everyone who attended the dinner to attest to that. Let it be said here and now that the Taber Civic Centre is the nicest I have seen. It is truly a fantastic edifice. Nothing is left to the imagination. For jne to try and describe it as I saw it would make for long and tedious reading. What I can tell you about it is that, at present, it contains an area for hockey that will seat more than a curling rink, complete with six sheets of ice and a skating rink which can be converted into three or maybe four more sheets of curling ice. All this does not make for an impressive civic centre you may say, but consider the fact that it is all under one roof and yet completely independent of one another. While Shimbashi wanted everyone to see the arena, skating rink and curling portion of the Civic Centre, he was also ready to describe the other con- tents. With the ice surfaces the focal point of the com- plex, an auditorium will be built at one end while at the other end a golf course is in the making. Add to this a swimming pool, a baseball diamond and playground for the kids and what more can you ask for? A fantastic edifice seems like a buttered up des- cription of a.building, but it is indeed the only way to describe the Taber Civic Centre. I had a chance to talk with Scotty Munro Sat- urday night and loved every minute of it. It was my first real meeting with the gentleman who at one time piloted the Lethbridge Native Sons and it was a most enjoyable chat. only is he a pleasant conversationalist but I liked what he had to say about Len Frig. You may remember Frig from when he played with the Lethbridge Sugar Kings. According to Scotty Frig can't miss the big time. He could, and who is better to judge than Munro, play in the expansion league next season. Howie Heggedal's name popped up as well and Scotty was more than pleased with his performance in the playoffs. Heggedal was plagued with bad luck all season but was outstanding when the chips were down. It was interesting to see Munro in Taber but, according to stories, he has been a frequent visitor there since it was revealed that Estevan is looking for a new home. And I'll tell, Scotty likes what he saw in Taber. berg, former U.S. Suprcn Court Justice, did lead Floe and Marvin Miller, executi director of the Major Lcagi Baseball Players Associalio through testimony vital to plaintiffs case. Prom Flood, Goldberg elicitc the response that he decided bring suit against baseball aft being traded by St. Louis Philadelphia because "I didn think I should be traded a: treated like a piece pro erly." From Miller, G o 1 d b e r elicited the response that in h admittedly expert opinion tl reserve system "is unnecessa ily restrictive and can b modified in a manner to serv the players, the owners and U fans. But Flood was the man in th spotlight as he hunched i'onvan in the witness chair and trace his long baseball career. During that testimony made the points that he was n consulted either of the tn times he was traded in the m, jors and that his refusal to jo: the Phillies had to do with th principle of being traded wit out his consent rather than money. "I didnt want .to move m business and family to anothi part of the United States. Flood explained. He also ai swered "no" when asked b Goldberg if he would play fo another club at a higher salar if he were traded without hi consent by the Phillies. Flood, in his suit, contenc that the system operates .in re straint of trade and therefor violates federal antitrust law: His case is unique because marks the first time the meril of the reserve system are bein argued in court.
