They did earn a berth in the seven-game series by sound- ly defeating Cincinnati Reds in a best-of-five playoff that went the distance. But the Mets won their three games handily, 5-0. 9-2 and 7-2 in the final. The Reds came up with a pair of 2-1 triumphs. However, the fact that the Mets are in the World Series does not take away from the question should the games entitled to New York be played elsewhere? There's no question that the New York fans, such as they are. will get to see their share of the 1973 Series. It would be too much to take away from New Yorkers suffering from Met- somania their baseball insulin. Why, though, does the excitement of baseball have to border on insanity just in New York? How can Wednesday's an- tics be justified by saying they were caused by excitement. Can better than people be hypered to such an ex- tent? After the game, which saw Cincinnati players' wives and Reds' officials escorted from their seats in the stands in the ninth inning. Sparky Anderson, manager of the Reds stated "normal fans wouldn't act that way. They must have been on dope or marijuana or something. I can't imagine this happening in America." Armed with bats, or anything handy. Cincinnati players stood their ground in their dugout at the games end. ''If the cops weren't going to stop the maniacs, we were go- ing to." said Johnny Bench, Cincinnati catcher. Cincinnati players agreed on one thing, a scene such as the one Wednesday would never have taken place in Cincinnati. The Reds won the National League pennant last year and only a dozen or so fans found their way onto the field. Wednesday, it appeared more like 15.000 took to the dia- mond after the game was over. The Mets weren't in their dressing rooms when one fan uprooted first base and was headed for second. The pot began boiling during Monday's game when a fired up Pete Rose and Bud Harrelson had a wrestling match that emptied both benches and bullpens. Rose, Cincinnati sparkplug didn't like what Harrelson, New York shortstop, said to him. But words were ail they would have exchanged had other players minded their own business. But to the New York supporters Rose was the villian. Outweighing Harrelson by better than 50 pounds, he would have to pay. A whiskey bottle barely missed Rose as he stood in left field. A game winning home run Tuesday simply added sail to the New York wound. No one knows for sure if some of the fans had any thoughts about going after Rose during the post-game onslaught. You could almost bet the grocery money it went through some fans' minds. The whiskey bottle was mild in comparison to what one New York Ranger fan hurled at Gump Worsley in Madison Square Garden. Earl Ingarfield, who played with the Rangers for nearly 10 seasons, recalls a steel padlock being thrown at the Gumper during one game in which Worslev was not at his best. "If it had hit him, it would have been all over for Gump, said Ingarfield one time. Ron Taylor, who managed, the Lethbridge Lakers this past summer in the Alberta Major Baseball League, played with the Mets and was a member of the club when they pulled off the baseball miracle of 1969. "It was scary to say the least." reminisced Taylor this summer." "They just kept coming at us, pulling our uniforms, hats anything they could get their hands he said. While some went after the players to show their apprecia- tion others took to tearing apart the diamond itself. "We weren't sure we would have a ball park left when tney got finished with added Taylor. "There were chunks of turf pulled up by the roots, they even tried to tear down the backstop. It was hard to believe." It was hard to believe Wednesday and yet what will happen if the Mets win the World Series and finish the series at home0 What do you do for an encore when you already seem to have done it all? All I can say is I'm glad I'll be watching from the safety of my living room. Bowling Scores 3110 In Black Imitation Lizard Spe too me many other now styles lor tnll '73 in a complole Sire rnnqe: Jubilant A Bert Campanaris, left, and Vida Blue of the Oakland A's pour champage over each other as the A's whoop it up in the locker room Thursday after beating Baltimore Orioles in the American League playoffs. Jim Hunter was superb in the fifth and deciding game. Wanted to go distance Hunter stayed in OAKLAND (AP) pitcher Jim (Catfish) Hunter admitted. "I was getting but continued with the declaration, "there was no way I was coming out of that game." The ace right-hander of the Oakland A's hurled his club into the World Series with a five-hit shutout of Baltimore in the deciding game Thurs- day of the American League baseball playoffs. "Those last innings I wanted to keep the ball low, and Sal Bando reminded me constantly to do it. He also kept asking me if I wanted some rest, but I was in the groove and I wanted to keep right on going." Hunter said that Wednesday, with the A's four runs ahead, he hadn't figured there would be a fifth game of the playoffs But the Orioles rallied and A's manager Dick Williams had already figured that Hunter would be his hurler if the best-of-five playoff series needed the fifth game. As champagne corks popped and pitcher Vida Blue kept showering his team-mates, re- porters and photographers with the bubbly. Hunter calm- ly answered questions. Hunter, winner of two World Series games last year for the champions, won two in the playoffs and will pitch against the National League champion New York Mets in Shea Stadium next Tuesday. Williams selected K.en Holtzman, also a winner against Baltimore, to open the World Series in the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday. Blue, like Holtzman a lefthander and 20-game winner, will op- pose the Mets on Sunday. Owner Charles O. Finley gave Jlunter a big hug of con- pratuiations in the club-. 1 o'lre where revelry reigned. Vic Davalillo, the little Ve- nezuelan whose triple drove in a run in the fourth and put him in position to score, said he hit a fast ball right where he wanted it. That hit off starter Doyle Alexander virtually brought the downfall of the young Oriole right-hander. The next batter, Jesus Alou, singled and manager Earl Weaver brought his ace, Jim Palmer, on in a relief role. Manager Williams won't hold a workout today but call- ed a team meeting to go over strategy for the World Series. He had three scouts watching the New Yorkers. It appeared doubtful that the A's would have outfielder Billy North available for at least the first two games of the World Series. The centrefielder tore liga- ments in his ankle late in the regular season and missed the playoffs. "It doesn't look like we can use him Williams said. Baltimore owner Jerold C. Hoffberger came into the A's dressing room to congratulate the winners and commented: think they will do well against the Mets. This is a fine ball club. This man who pitch- ed today is outstanding." Badminton club set The Lethbridge Civic Centre Badminton Club will open their 1973-74 season at two o'clock on their home courts Sunday afternoon. Club members will hit the courts until five o'clock and will then continue play for another three hours Thursday evening starting at All old and new members are welcome to attend the club sessions. The manager hasn't yet de- cided on a lineup against Jon Matlack, the left-hander slated to start for the Mets in the first game. There was a possibility he would move Reggie Jackson from right field to centre and put a right- handed hitter in right field. Jackson, the American League leader in homers and RBI during the past season, missed last year's World Series with injuries. He's ready this time. "Getting into the World Series is a big bonus, and I'm really looking forward to it." Williams didn't appear too worried about the American League champions not being allowed to use a designated hitter in the World Series as they had during the regular season. "We've had the Ditching staff taking batting practice at home games all season." he said. Hockey for gals All members of the 1973 Lethbridge Women's Fastball League will have a chance to stay in shape over the winter by playing a little hockey. A practice will be held for all gals who wish to try their luck on the ice this Sunday at a.m. at Henderson Lake Ice Centre. Other practices will be stag- ed every second Sunday at the same time and place. If interested please call Marilyn Snedden at 328-8087. LETHBRIDQC OFFICE FURNITURBLTD. Lwrt 7th tUMt Mopping MaN PhOM (403) 321-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES A's dump Orioles, look for crown OAKLAND (AP) Hard- throwing left-hander Ken Holtzman finds himself in the same position today as he was a year to pitch the opening World Series game for Oakland Athletics against the National League champions. This time New York Mets oppose him Saturday at the Oakland Coliseum and the former Chicago Cubs' hurler says: "I pitched against them a lot of years and they gave me a lot of trouble. But I feel super about getting the chance to pitch against them again." Holtzman beat Cincinnati 3- 2 in last year's opener and in his latest outing, he went 11 innings to beat Baltimore Orioles 2-1 in the third game of the American League baseball playoffs. The Athletics, defending major league champions, wrapped up their second straight pennant Thursday as right-hander Jim Hunter blanked the Orioles 3-0 in the finale of their best-of-five playoffs. "I was getting tired, but no way I'm coming out of that ball said the 27-year- old Hunter who posted a 21-5 regular-season record and beat Baltimore twice in the playoffs. "I was just trying to keep the ball he said of his five-hit, shutout performance. "They didn't get a home run off me in two games; isn't that a During the regular season, the Orioles slammed eight homers from Hunter offerings but still he was 3-0 against them. The Athletics, who blew a 4-0 lead Wednesday and lost 5-4, took a 1-0 lead in the third inning of the decider. In the fourth with two out, Gene Tenace, the hero of the 1972 World Series, singled. Little Vic Davalillo tripled off the 375-foot sign in right centre and Jesus Alou singled him home. That was plenty of insurance for Hunter as Oakland won the series 3-2. Doyle Alexander, the Orioles' 23-year-old right- hander, started the game but left after Alou's hit with Jim Palmer making only his se- cond relief appearance in four years. Palmer shut out the Athletics the rest of the way. Manager Dick Williams ap- peared unconcerned that his club won't be able to use a designated hitter in the best- of seven World Series. The new rule, with a batter going to the plate instead of the pitcher, went into effect in the AL only this year. "We've been having the pitchers take batting practice all season when we're home." the manager said, and Hunter is considered a good batter. He hit .305 three seasons ago. HUNTER HAD IT "He got up once this year and got a hit." Williams recalled. "Holtzman was up once and drew a walk." Oakland goes into the World Series with three 20-game pitching Holtzman, 21-13, and Vida Blue, 20-9. Williams said Blue would face the Mets Sunday and Hunter would go Tuesday when the clubs play game No. 3 in New York's Shea Stadium. The Mets left New York im- mediately at the conclusion of the game in Oakland. They won the fifth game of their series against Cincinnati a day earlier because Monday's AL game was postponed by rain.

Mets busy preparing NEW YOHK (AP) with an encouraging medical report on right fielder Rusty Staub's shoulder and with their ground crew busily repairing Shea Stadium's ripped-up turf, New York Mets spent Thursday waiting for Oakland and Baltimore to settle baseball's American League title. The Mets were due to leave late Thursday for the American League champion's city, where the World Series will start Saturday. The National League cham- pions hope to have Staub available after the slugger's bruised right shoulder was reported "very much im- by Dr. Peter LaMotte, the Mets' club physician. Staub was injured Tuesday making a spectacular catch in the llth inning against Cincin- nati Reds. He sat out Wednes- day's pennant clincher, won by the Mets 7-2. That victory set off a fright- ening explosion of fan en- thusiasm, with a sea of humanity sweeping across Shea Stadium, engulfing players, police and ushers alike. Firecrackers exploded, the bases were ripped from their moorings and the field was covered with thousands of fans seeking souvenirs of the championship game. Huge tufts of grass were ripped out of both the infield and outfield and the ground crew spent Thursday beginn- ing the repair job needed to put the field in shape for next week's World Series games. There were wheelbarrels full of fresh sod and workmen with rakes were starting the repair job on dozens of gouges in both the infield and out- field. Jim Thomson, a vice presi- dent and business manager of the Mets, said that square feet of sod on the play- ing field was being replaced. The repair job will cost the club about Thomson said. Besides ripping up the grass, the crowds over-ran temporary field boxes down the first and third base lines and ripped some plywood out of the centre field fence. The ground crew repaired that damage early Thursday before going to work on the field itself. Meanwhile, New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller wired his congratulations to the Mets. "Right on to the World said the governor's telegram. "The emergence of our mir- acle Mets from the cellar to the pennant is stunning good news. Whatever else happens, the world looks a little better from New York for your fan- tastic feat."
