Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Second Straight Shutout For McGlotlilin Stottlemyre Wins Despite Control Troubles Friday, May JJ, WO THI IEIH1RID5S HERALD 9 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Yankees Mel -Stot- ttemyre allowed six hits and irtiiked 11 other Wasnington Senators Thursday. But when it was all over, none of those Washington runners had crossed home plate. The Yankees had a satisfying if bizarre 2-0 victory. In the only other American League games played Thursday night, Cleveland Indians ripped Boston Red Sox 10-7 and Detroit Tigers split a double-header with Baltimore Orioles, whining the first game 6-4 before drop- ping the nightcap 3-1. Washington loaded Hie bases on a single and two more walks in the ninth and lanky Steve Hamilton relieved. He struck out Mike Epstein and Bernle Allen to end the game. The Senators stranded 14 .base runners in all. Washington Man- ager Ted Williams said: "There is no excuse." The Yanks managed just three hits but one. of them was Danny Cater's two-run homer in UK fifth inning, accounting far both runs. Meantime in the National Lea gue Richie Allen belted a two- run, ninth inning homer Thurs day night, the first time lie has played to Philadelphia since the traded him last fall to St. Louis Cardinals. But the dropped the game 4-3 on a ninth-inning, run by Philadel- phia.

Reserve Clause Losing Battle? Flood Gets Support NEW YORK (AP) Jim Brosnan came home from work at the ball park one day in 1954 to find his wife upset. She said it was because of the steaks. Brosnan now knows it was because of the reserve clause. "Brosnan, owned by the Chi- cago Cubs organization, would travel up and down the minor league ladder five times during the 1954 season, the reserve sys- tem permitting the parent club to transfer his contract when- ever and wherever they de- cided. When he came home this par- ticular day there was a notice to pack up and move on. "My wife threatened to di- vorce the pitcher-author explained in court Tuesday as he testified in the Curt Flood euit against-baseball.. "She bad just bought two weeks of steaks to put in the freezer. She wanted to know what to do with the steaks." And, asked counsel, just to complete the record, could Brosnan say what she finally did with the steaks. Allan Ford Signs Contract REGINA (CP) Alan Ford, versatile end and punter who first joined Sas- katchewan Koughriders in 1966, has signed for Hie 1970 season and three top Canadian draft choices have signed tryout con- tracts, the Western Football Conferees club announced to- day. "She gave replied Brosnan, "to the player who re- ported in my place." The little story, which brought laughter to the courtroom, made a point for Flood's posi- tion that baseball's reserve sys- tem can influence the lives ol players in small ways as well as large. Proving that the reserve sys- tem is too restrictive as pres- ently constituted is a key to Flood's contention that the .sys- tern baseball operates is in re- straint of trade and therefore violates federal antitrust stat- utes. HELD BACK BOOK .Brosnan, who became more famous as an author than as a pitcher when he wrote The Long Season; also pointed out that re- strictive clauses in the player contract had kept him from having his work published dur- ing the playing season. Brosnan's testimony, coming as it did from a player of aver- age skills, obviously was de- signed to contrast with the testi- mony given earlier in the day by two Hall of Fame Hank Greenberg and Jackie Robinson. Citing the, reserve clause a; "obsolete and an liquate d': Greenberg.said the sport needs a change to help cement rela- tions between the players and the owners. Greenberg, who also talks from front office experience as a one-time part-owner of two different clubs, said the reserve the option re- newal "a unilateral contract in which the player has no choice but to accept terms SHOTGUN SHOOTERS The LETHBRIDGE TRAP CLUB Invites you to come out and sharpen up for the coming season.

Phone 327-1581 because he can't play else- where." Greenberg, former Detroit Ti- gers slugger, suggested the clause be eliminated and re- placed by a provision that only bound a player to a club for a certain number of years. Hobinsori, former Brooklyn Dodgers star, characterized the reserve clause as "one-sided in favor of the owners" and said if it was not modified it would lead to a strike by the players.
