Canada will train next week In Homestead, Fla., "but it's not nearly enough La courslere said in an interview "Most of the other countries will be playing in their baseball season." Canada, participating in only Its third world series, was hurt by lack of practice in last year's series. "We were as good as any club defensively" Lacoursiere said. "But our pitching and hit- ting were not as strong, an in- dication that our timing was af> fected." Another factor working against the Canadians, who fin- ished fifth In a 10-team field last year, Is that some of the top amateur players could not take time off from work or school. WANTS KELP Lacoursiere would like to see the federal government reim- burse players for time missed from work but he isn't holding out much hope. "It's like banging your head against a wall, ff the govern- ment does it for one sport, then they'll have to do it for all sports that ask." Ottawa is paying 75 per cent of the team's travelling costs. The Canadian squad will be managed by Gerry MacKay of Brandon, Man., president nf the Manitoba Baseball Association. Most of the squad was selected from players at the Canadian senior championship in Cam- rose, Alta., with others coming from the Canadian Junior championship in Quebec and some recommended by scouts. Lacoursiere said most of the teams in the series are from Latin America but squads are entered from Japan, West Ger- many and South Korea. Games will be played in Man agua and four other cities. For mat for the series hasn't been determined but Lacoursiere Blazers jump on Cheevers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Goalie Gerry Cheevers is one reason why Cleveland Crusa- ders are atop the East Division of the World Hockey Associ- ation. The former Boston Bruin net- minder in the National Hockey League had a 1.53 goals-allowed average going into Wednesday night's game against Phila- delphia Blazers. But the Blazers, In last place in the East, fired seven goals Behind Cheevers Wednesday night to down the Crusaders 7- In other games, Minnesota East with 15 points, four ahead of second-place Quebec Les Nordiques. Goalie Mike Curran, a former United States Olympic hero, stopped 41 Winnipeg shots as the Fighting Saints shut out the Jets. Curran kept the Saints in the game until Craig Falkman's goal, with five seconds left in the second period, put Min- nesota in front. George Konik and Mike Antonovich got the other Minnesota goals. Kevin Ahearn scored two goals for New England as the Whalers whipped the Cougars. lighting Saints, cellar dwellers I Ahearn, a former Boston col- in the West, shut out West Divi- sion-leading Winnipeg Jets 3-0 and New England Whalers de- eated Chicago Cougars 4-2. Philadelphia, with only one ictory in its first nine games, ;ot four goals from Danny jawson and some spectacular ;oaltending from Marcel Faille o beat Cleveland. Faille kicked out 42 shots and ,awson scored three of the ilazers' first four goals. Derek Sanderson also sorred for 'hiladelphia, boating Cheevers, iis old Boston team-mate, on a jreakaway. The seven goals allowed by Cheevers was the most scored igainst him this season. He had lot given up more than three joals in any previous pame Despite the loss, Cleveland emains in first place in the lege star, tied the score 2-2 late in the second period, and as- sisted on Tom Earl's third-pe- riod goal for New England. Then he wrapped up the victory with a backhander for his sec- ond goal of the game. would like to see two-division round-robin play with the top team or top two in each divi sion advancing to the finals ir early December. Lacoursiere picks Cuba, the defending champion, as the team to beat. "The Cuban national team is equivalent to major league teams. They play all year Scouts at the Pan-American Games said four or five o them could be playing in the majors." Although the Cubans are claS' sified as amateur, Lacoursiere compared their amateur status with that of Olympic athletes heavily subsidized by their gov- ernments. He said there's a trend to re- lax restrictions on amateurs with countries realizing "lhal the true amateur as described by the International Olympic Committee just doesn't exist anymore."

"I said the Als couldn't win more than four games and that's exactly what they've done. I said I didn't know how much Sam Bcrgcr has already oft with the franchise, but the way he was promoting it he was going to lose a lot more "But I still think it can all be lumcd around. That franchise is still a diamond in the -ough." SALE RUMORED Last week there was specula- .ion that two different U.S.- )ased groups were trying to buy the floundering franchise.
