Baseball Needs Reserve Clause Says Commissioner Kuhn's Defence To Be Attacked NEW YORK (AP) Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn's claims that baseball cannot exist without the reserve system will be attacked in cross exami- nation today in the seventh day of Curt Flood's anti-trust suit against baseball. Jay Topkis, one of Flood's lawyers, barely got started on cross examination of the com- m i s s i o n e r Wednesday ter Kuhn had testified that the game could not continue to op- er'ate on a league basts if the re- serve system were removed. Flood, formerly a itar centre fielder with St. Louis Cardinals, balked at reporting to Philadel- phia Phillies after he was traded last winter and brought tutt lishment. One of his main tar- gets is the reserve system, a complex set of rules that prov- ide a club with the option to renew a player's contract each year. Executives of other sports have testified on the way their reserve systems operate. Foot- ball, for instance, has a clause that permits a player to play one year after his contract has expired and then become a free agent. Kuhn said the football system would be "very tad" for base- ball because he wouM be con- cerned (bout the integrity of the game and the effects on equal competition. "In our Kuhn, "and in our atat, I un not talking about football. H a player could play out his option there would be the built-in evils of tampering and behind-the- scenes negotiations that tend to shake the public confidence in the game." Kuhn said it was impossible to compare baseball and foot- ball in economic operation be- cause football has a player development system in the colleges while baseball has to support a minor league ivs- tem. He also laid he thought H was easier to replace a guard or a blocking tuckle ton t Tom Seaver or a player on Bald- more Orioles. The commissioner had found hi several alternatives to tin (vitcm pvw m previous testimony by Hall o Famer Hank GrCenherg and Marvin Miller, executive direc tor of the Major League Base- ball Players Association. Miller bad suggested the op- tion be restricted to a definite number of yean. Kuhn laid this would open the door to a player dealing with another club while still with his fint club and DOS sibte tampering. He claimed the richer teams would tend to lign the most ptayen iBd itan would pjvitate to- Hit richer team. As for MUler1) fuggeition ttw competitive might be organized, Kuhn laid: "Tha would destroy the f ami aa it oowauta." 1970 Cojcqde (5 lizel) 1970 Slaraaft (6 1970 Sportscraf 1970 Ediorw 1970 Skipper and Trailers (all 1970 Camperetles and Dog House PRICED TO SELL 1970 Fiberglas Topper Priced
