Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta May, Morgan switch cliibs Sudden Sam McDowell a Giant SCOTTSDALK, Ariz. CAP) Chicago Culis and Oakland Ath- letics, Houston Astros and Cin- cinnati Itals, Cleveland Indians and San Francisco Giants pulled off surprise trades Monday to open the winter baseball meet- ings. As quickly as one could say (Sudden Sam) McDowell, the Indians' strikeout king was de- livered to the Giants to tap off an explosive day of swapping that involved 13 players, many of thorn big names. The Indians, who had their problems with the temperamen- tal left-hander, landed right- handed ace Gaylord Perry and infieldcr Frank Duffy in one of the biggest dealing days in his- tory. "I talked to McDowell and he said: Thank you, I hope I live up to the faith you have in said San Francisco manager Charlie Fox. Eight iwnm sp.ek title LCI tourney this weekend The Lelhlrndge Collegiate In- stitute has been known to host one of the finest annual high school boy's invitational basket- ball tournament.'; in western Canada and this year should be no exception. The LCI tourney officials have gathered some, of the top high sclrcol teams from Alber- ta, Saskatchewan and northern Montana. Talent wise, the fifth annual tourney could be the best ever and it is expected that all par- ticipating teams are preparing extra hard for the two-day tournament this weekend. Jim Whilelaw, the originator of the annual tournament is more than happy with the line- up in store. "This year the participating teams are more equal front one BOWA TO ATTEND tarry Bowa of the Philadelphia Phillies is the latest guest named for the head table of the annual LDS Father and Son Banquet. latest guest Larry Bowa. outstanding young "shortstop for the Phila- delphia Phillies ol the National Baseball League, has been named to the head table of the LDS Father and Son Athletic Awards Banquet. Bowa will join Harold and Bryan Mandeville from the world of rodeo, former distance runner Jerome Platt and emcee Ron Low at the head table. The banquet is slated for Saturday, Jan. ID at the Lethbridge Com- munity College. In 1971 Bowa tied the major league record for fewest errors by a shortstop. 11, and his .387 fielding percentage was a new major league high. Lam1, in his second year in the major leamie.-. had 1B2 hits for the Phillies last season while compiling a 2.50 baiting average. He alfo participates in base- ball's anti-drug program, speaking at various high schools, warning youngsters about the dan.crrs nf drugs. Tickets for this years banquet arc available at apiece from Gough's Body Shop, Thrift-way Drugs and Dougs Musie and Sports in Lpthbridge. Rainbow event set The 16th annual Rainbow Bonspiel is set to get under way Friday evening at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Some 32 rinks from various parts of Alberta and Saskatch- ewan are slated to lake part in the three day event. Prize monev for the event totals Expected to take part in the Ijonspiel. along uitli a number of Lethbridge rinks, arc Bruce Stcwait of Calgary, a former Rainbow champion as well as the George Fink foursome of Calgary. Fink himself will not attend but the rest of his rink will take part. team to the next and individual matches should be commented Whilelaw. Whitelaw, who has a repuLi- lion of rarely being wrong on such matters, has helped bring in some of the top teams for the two-day affair. Eight teams will make a bid for the coveted title which in- clude K-G Cougars from Mon- tana, Sheldon Williams of Re- gina. Edmonton Ross Shep- pard Thunderbirds, two top Calgary teams, Raymond Com- ets, Catholic Central Cougars and the host LCI Rams. Froir Northern Montana, the Kremlin Foxes will bring up a strong contingent to defend their tourney title and are rated as the tourney favorites. COMBINE TEAMS This season the Foxes have combined with another high school in their district and will be known as the K-G Cougars. Under head coach Bob Par- sley, the K-G Cougars have add- ed three starters from the Gil- ford High School as well as a complete return of last year's championship team. From the east, coach Loren Aston of the Sheldon-Williams Spartans from R e g i n a will bring a team definitely not lacking in height. Coach Aston has at least five boys G'l" or taller and should be top notch contenders for the honors this year. In last year's competition the Spartans finished with a 17-3 record and captured two tourna- ments along with the title of league champions in their division. From "outhern Alberta, coach Dean Dahl will enter one of tile strongest teams ever to come out of the Catholic Central High School. A team consisting of veter- ans, Dahl will have no prob- lems in substituting freely. John Dudas, Lyle Gall ant, Randy Royer and" Peter Sikora to name a few, will lead the blue and white from CCHS. COMETS TOUGH Always a perennial winner at any tournament, the big red and white machine from Ray- mond will be out in full force to regain their tourney title they lost last year. The Cornels have won the, title three out of the four years running and will be coached once again by Bob Gibb. Although the Comets have lost two of their star players in Lloyd Fairbanks and Gary Wil- liams it is expected that the tradition of winning and pride will be one of their strongest attributes. Coach Hugh Tamblyn will once again lead the host LCI Rams inio action this weekend for the coveted award. A team consisting mainly of experienced players led by third year veterans Richard Andreachuk and Mark Haslam, the Hams will try to break the four-year drought this season. The Rams have been final- ists twice, but the title has eluded them on both occasions. The two Calgary teams to enter the tourney are not yet decided. The two entries will be de- dded in an elimination tour- ney early this week. Everyone else was happy. "Tile game today is and dial's what I traded said C i n c i n n a 11 i manager Sparky Anderson, whose Reds acquired quick-footed second baseman Joe Morgan from Houston. Morgan and four oilier Astros Denis Menke, pitcher Jack Billingham, outfielder Cesar Geronimo nnd minor league outfielder Ed Annbrister to the Reds for slugger Lee May, second baseman Tommy Helms laid outfielder Jimmy Stewart. Anderson didn't mind giving up the power-hitting May. "Sure, we gave up jwwer but I think this deal now gives us a chance to play the kind of base- ball I running said Anderson. "I look to Mor- gan to steal 50 bases for us this coming season." Earlier the Cubs started things by sending southpaw star Ken Holtzman to the pitching- hungry Ahtletics for outfielder Hick Monday. Oakland was forced to trade for a pitcher because of the un- certainty of injury-plagued Chuck Dobson and John (Blue Moon) Odom. In Holtzman, they receive one of baseball's leading left-handers with two career no-hitters to his credit. "He'll be tha perfect partner for Vido said Oakland manager Dick Williams. THRILLED TO LEAVE As happy as Williams was to have his new pitcher, Holtzman was just as thrilled to leave the Chicago organization. He was one of the dissidents during a period of open player rebellion against manager Leo Duroeher. "The air is cleared said Holtzman from his home in St. Louis. "I wouldn't have cared if the Cubs had traded me for two dozen eggs." Duroeher unflinchingly parted with Holtzman for a player of "Monday's quality." The em- battled manager said he would use the speedy centre fielder as a leadoff man. Monday, a member of the American League's all-star team in 1868, batted .245 last season wilb 18 home runs and 56 RBI. Holtzman fell below career standards with a 9-15 wan-lost mark last year, but notched his second major league no-hitter. There was no question that May was the most coveted player in the Astros deal with the Reds. The big first baseman hit 39 homers last year and drove in 98 runs. In Tommy Helms, the Astros get a top fielding second baseman. The McDowell-Perry deal was a swap of superstars. McDowell, despite a sub-par 13-17 season, fanned 192 batters. His 2.159 strikeouts in eight sea- sons ranks 17th on the all-time list. Pern', four years older at 33, has thrived on work through the years. His record was 16-12 last season and the big right-hander has toiled 250 innings or more each of the past six campaigns.
