Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 IMS LETHRRInGE HFRAID Novr-mlur 9, 197' SULLY SAYS -Hy Pal Sullivan JN THE next day or so Dick Alien of Hie Chicago White Sox or Hit American Baseball League will be named the Ifl72 most valuable player in Hie league. Wednesday saw Johnny Bench receive the honor in the National League over Billy Williams of the Chicago Cubs. Earlier Ktove Girlion, who finished fifth in (lie most valuable voting, was named the NL Cy Young award winner as flic ouislancling pitcher in the league. Goylorcl Perry won the honor in the Ameri- can League. Carl ton was a unanimous choice for (lie award. He won 27 games and lost just 10. His victories amounted to -46 per cent of the total wins for the entire Philadelphia Phillies ball club as they man- aged only 59 wins all year. The surprise "'as Perry. A refugee from the Na- tional League's San Francisco Giants, Perry earned 24 wins for Ihc Cleveland Indians. Never before has a pitcher switched from one league to another and grabbed the brass ring on his first try on Ihe new and unfamiliar merry-go-round. Perry, whose brother Jim won the award as a pitcher with the Minnesota Twins in 1970, bested Wilbur Wood of the Chicago White Sox, Jim (Catfish) Hunter of the Oakland A's and Mickey Lolich of the Detroit Tigers. The batters in each league insist, however, that Perry gains high goals in slightly unorthodox fashion, a charge that he denies. "There's only one synthetic field in the Ameri- can he once explained, "and natural grass helps me because 1 keep my pitches low by throwing sinkers." snorted every baiter who ever hit against him. They may have used even stronger lan- guage for all you know. Hitters in both leagues have long accused Perry of using a pitch that is not only unsanitary but il- legal, the spitball. His slider has a downward dip, the sign erf a good spitter. Perry has been frisked, on more than one occasion by umpires looking for foreign substances, including the greasy kid stuff. He has come up clean every time. You can't ban perspiration or ordinary saliva. Oldtimers will tell you that there isn't enough mois- ture from them anyway. You have to chew slippery elm in order to load the ball just right for an effec- tive spitler. Slippery elm was widely used when the spitter was legal. Perry, like all pitchers accused of throwing the wet look pitch, tries to look innocent at all times. Once a man has been accused of throwing a spitter, he has a distinct edge on the batter who will often see things which aren't even there. A mischievous guy like Lew Burdctle used to take particular delight in throwing the third strike fast ball past former teammate and buddy, Henry Aaron, when Henry was bracing himself for the spitter that didn't come. The tall Indian righthander was new to the Amer- ican League hitters and that had to be to his ad- vantage. He also brought to the junior league a rep- utation of having flim flammed National League hit- ters with the spitball. whether that charge was de- served or otherwise, is beside the point, The seeds of doubt were implanted in the hitters and Gaylord had the psychological edge. No one, however, can lake away from him the fact that he pitched superbly for a bad ball club and won 24 games. No authority has yet demanded that all recipi- ents of the Cy Young award must first submit to a saliva test. RESERVE EARLY Colorado voters nppareiitly settled issue for entire country There is little chance 1976 Games will be in U.S. By Till! CANADIAN 1'IIESS Denver's inability to fuiril its obligations as host of the 197G Winter Olympic Games lias probably cost the United States that international sporting travaganza, a spokesman for the Denver Olympic Organizing Committee (DOOC) saici Wednesday. The voters in Colorado turned thumbs down on stale financing for the Games in a referendum vote conducted Tuesday in con- junction with the presidential ballot in the U.S. Squaw Valley, Calif., is the latest former Olympic site to offer its facilities to again enter- tain the Winter Olympics as it did in 1960. Lake Placid, N.Y., site of the 1932 Winter Games, jumped into running to be considered an al- ternate to Denver but Carl De- Temple, president of the DOOC, said the offer "is probably not too realistic." U.S. OUT OF RUNNING "The U.S. is probably out of the running." The Vancouver-Garibaldi committee, that offered to stage the 1976 Winter Games at Whis- tler Mountain only to be re- jected in favor of Denver, is also considering resubmitting its bid. Mayor Tom Campbell said, upon hearing that Colorado vot- ers had rejected funding the Denver Games, the Vancouver- Garibaldi Olympic Committee will go after the Games it the bidding is re-opened. "We'll be a little rushed for 1976 now, but we pan do Campbell said. There has been a move in re- cent years, headed by Avery Brundage, former International Olympic Committee president, to do away with the Winter Games. The new IOC president, Lord Killanin of Dublin, Ireland, said shortly after his return home from touring the 1976 Summer Games site at Montreal, he would meet Monday with his three vice-presidents to decide what future steps to take. The announcement was made through the IOC's headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. The vice-presidents conferring with Killanin will be Count Jean de Beaumont of France, Herman van Karnebeck of Holland and Willy Daume of West Germany. A number of European na- ,ions are also expected to vie for the Games, including In- nsbruck, Austria, which was host to the 1964 Winter Games. Other European cities men- tioned as possible Games' sites include Grenoble, France, which held the I960 Winter Games; Sion, Switzerland, which also bid for the 1976 ames; and Sweden which would spread the events over different areas of the a format opposed in the past by the IOC. Marc Hodler, president of Ihe .ntemalional Ski Federation, suggested that Tampere, Fin- and; Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany, might also be considered. The offer from Squaw Valley ntereets has already run into a roadblock where state Assem- blyman Eugen A. Chappie declared: "We're still trying to bail out of the mess of 1960. If someone ml up million for access, odging, law enforcement and mow removal, that would be lomething else. Otherwise, I don't want to see the county get addled with another awesome mrden." Almost all the facilities used r the I960 Winter Olympics re available in Squaw Valley, including an expanded ski area. would also be jump, a W metre speed skating required in Lake Placid, site of the Winter Games. The area offered a bid for the Games. Officials there say Ihe only facilities which would have to be built to accommodate the Games would be a 90-metre ski track, refrigerating (or a new bobsled run and housing for ath- letes and visitors. "Twenty million would do a marvelous job here as opposed to the ?100 million planned for said one Lake Placid official. But objections from the elec- torate can be expected, accord- ing to William Hurley, supervi- sor o[ the town of North Elba, where many of the sites would be located. "I don't lliink Ihe majority ot our people would approve it in a said Hurley, cit- ing the same reasons as Colora- dans rejected the Games. Vancouver officials, however, still have an offer of financial assislance from the federal gov- ernment held over from when they bid for the Games in 1968. "We already have in writing from the federal government the promise of financial assist- said Bob Hindmarch, acting president of the Vancou- ver Olympic Games Committee.

Des javelins, a chubby 185- ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES ALBERTA JUNIOR pounder from Sudbury, has had a nomadic career, brought about primarily by a broken arm in 1971. Traded to Los Angeles by Montreal in 1968 [or a couple of first round draft choices, he performed miracles for the Kings before being rescued by Chicago in February, 1970. It was while laboring with the Kings he earned the trademark, fastest glove in the west. Before he was never able to establish himself with the Hawks, a broken arm sidelined him for the rest of the 1970 sea- son and the following year he was traded to California. But the arm hadn't mended properly, he wound up back with Chicago. The NIIL nullified the goaltenders' part of the trade and was swapped back to Lho Hawks. Playing behind Tony Esposilo and Gary Smith, he playeH dily games last season and was I picked up by Islanders in the draft last June.
