Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THi LBTMBRIDOE HttaALD Saturday, OetebW 12, 1174 ALVIN DARK CHATS WITH SPEEDY CLAUDELL AND HERB WASHINGTON Hale to Gary Player, Invin in sight of title VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) Gary Player of South Africa and Hale Irwin of the United States charged through to the final of the Pic- cadilly World Match Play golf championship- Friday. Player, winner of this year's U.S. Masters and British Open, hit a stream of great iron shots to crush American Jerry Heard 5 and 4 in his 36 hole semi final while Irwin, reigning U.S. Open champion, beat Britain's Tony Jacklin 5 and 4. A prize of is at stake in today's 36 hole final over Wentworth's yard, par 73 layout. Player, the defending champion, is aim- ing to win the title for the six- th time in 11 years. The little South African was in top form Friday as the course slowly dried out after recent rains. He went off the fairway only once all day at the 17th the first time around, when his tee shot landed just a few inches into the rough. Heard finally conceded the match at the short 32nd after hooking a three iron from the tee into the trees. Player shot a 34-34-68 in the morning, five under par. He took 36 to reacfi the turn in the afternoon, but said he would have been under par again if he had played and putted out every hole. Jacklin, the last British hope, stayed even with Irwin for the first 12 holes of the day. But the American then shook him off, shooting four birdies in the last six holes of the morning round and leading by three bogeys in the first five holes in the afternoon, while Irwin kept going with steady par figures. Irwin said his game came to after he missed a putt on the 14th and some partisan British fans cheered. "I don't understand why people have to behave that Irwin said. "It happens in the United States and it happens here. "But I guess I should thank those people, because they made me mad and got my game going." M fcSS BJiu, MIL, p.m. Meanwhile Don Bies won the prize for the day's low score of 67 and shared the lead with three other American pros and a Japan- ese after Friday's second round of the Pacific Invitational golf tournament Bies' four-under-par perfor- mance on the yard Tobu Country Club course gave, him a 36 hole .total of 140, two un- der par, and a tie with Hubert Green, Jim Simons, Bob Menne and Kosaku Shimada. Nine golfers were only one stroke back, including defending champion Masahi Jumbo Osaki, last year's runner up Bert Yancey, Bob Murphy and Gene Littler. Green shot a second round 71 and Simons a 68. Menne was in with a 69 and Shimada fired a 72. Two strokes back at 142 were Rod Curl, Bob Dickson and Tsutomu Iriye, a Japan- ese amateur. Shigeru Uchida, the first round-leader with a 67, fell four strokes off the pace after a second round 77. "I scored better yesterday but I played better said Green after putting a 71 with his opening 69 for a share of the lead. Simons said the coarse is longer than that usually found on the U.S. pro tournament trail. "But the fairway is he said. "It is easier to use long irons and woods." Yancey, who had a first round 71, missed a chance to take sole possession of the lead Friday. He was four un- der after 12 holes but bogeyed the next three holes. "My driving was bad he lamented. "That was the biggest problem for me." Only golfers at 149 or better after two rounds made the cut for the final 36 boles. Let your Blue Moon do the stepping on your Rollie Fingers A's battle on eve of World Series LOS ANGELES (AP) Oakland A's, the strangest of championship teams, are back in fighting form. On Friday, the day before the World Series opened, the A's top pitcher said he considers himself a free agent, and two other pitchers on the American League champions brawled in the clubhouse. Rollie Fingers, the ace reliever on the team which begins pursuit of its third consecutive World Series title Saturday, was taken to hospital Friday where five stitches were required to close a scalp cUt-he sustained in a clubhouse brawl with team- mate John (Blue Moon) Odom. Speaking with experience that could only come from being with the team, A's trainer Joe Homo said: "It was just a friendly scuffle. It should break the monotony." Moments later, Jim (Catfish) Hunter, the A's top pitcher, confirmed published reports that he will declare himself a free agent at the end of the Series on grounds that owner Charles O. Fihley has failed to deliver worth of his 1974 contract. Finley, who always seems to wind up in the eye of a verbal hurricane, would only say: "There's nothing to it." Earlier this year, outfielders Reggie Jackson and Bill North brawled in the clubhouse, and catcher -Ray Fosse was lost for 11 weeks when he was in- jured trying to break it up. Early in the season, players berated manager Alvin Dart in public. Third baseman Sal Bando said: "He couldn't manage a meat market." Thursday, Finley and a physician were sued for million by Mike Andrews, the second baseman Finley removed from his squad in the midst of the 1973 World Series. Finley and the doctor said the day after Andrews made two errors in an A's defeat the player was not physically fit to play. Neither player would comment-on the scrap that occurred minutes after the A's checked into Dodger Stadium for a workout, but Fingers is reported to have suffered the scalp cut when he fell against a wooden post. He was treated at nearby Lutheran Hospital. "I don't want anything to disrupt us now with the World Series Hunter said of his contract problems. He said that if he didn't want to pitch for the A's, he wouldn't be in uniform now, then added: "I wouldn't mind being a member of the A's next year." Hunter met briefly with his lawyer, Jerry Kaps- tein of Springfield, Va., prior to the workout. kapstein said Finley's failure to send to an investment company by ft deadline required in Hunter's contract constituted a breach of contract. 'Jim is a free agent now, the same as a youngster out of high hs said. "He's playing un- ilaterally of his own free will in the World Series." In addition to Hunter, Fingers and Odom, others among the less-than-happy are Vida Blue and Ken Holtzman, the other two starters the A's will use in the series. Blue, dissatisfied since a long contract holdout in 1972, says he'll be happy playing baseball only if Finley sells the A's or he is traded. Holtzman has been saying recently that he's tired of all the travel and just might retire at the end of the year. He was embittered before the season began when he turned down Finley's final contract offer, went to arbitration and lost. Los Angeles is favored win all-west Series LOS ANGELES (AP) Oakland A's started swinging at Los Angeles Dodgers today in the opening game of baseball's 71st World Series. Seeking to become only the third team ever to win three successive world titles, the American League champion A's sent left-hander Ken Holtzman, 19-17 in the regular season, against the Dodgers' right-handed fastballer, Andy Messersmith, 20-6. The Dodgers are 11-10 favor- ites to win the bestof-seven series that begins at 2 p.m. MDT, with live coverage on the CBC national television network. the series pits the veteran A's against the young, National League champion Dodgers; quiet, stern Dodger owner Walter O'Malley against the dictatorial, out- spoken Charles O. Finley; the brawling, wash-your-dirty- linen-in-public Oakland club against the harmonious, all- for-one and one-for-all Dodgers. But their aim is the same- win this series and the a-man reward that goes with it The big question mark is Oakland superstar Reggie Jackson, an uncertain starter today because of a pulled hamstring in his right leg. Jackson was a designated 'hitter in the playoffs, a posi- tion which doesn't exist in the World Series. In addition, pitcher Catfish Hunter said Finley had reneg- ed on his contract and that he would become a free agent when the series ends. "I look forward to playing the said Holtzman, who like his team-mates, wants this series but doesn't mind saying he doesn't want Finley. Holtzman, opening the series for the third straight year, said: "This is going to be our biggest test" The Dodgers have looked bad on occasion, like when they made a record five errors in a loss to Pittsburgh during the National League playoff. But they won 105 games, in- cluding the three playoff vic- brake servce guaranteed lor miles 4 wheel drum InMaH New Linings Repack From Outer Wheel Bearings Arc Linings to Drums Resurface Drums Complete brake inspection Front Disc Brakes Install New Dae Pads g Repack Front Outer Wheel Seanngg Resurface Front Rotors Complete brake mspectwn 43 47" We Guarantee (Everything ATTENTION HOCKEY TEAMS Bert Mies Cydi is the largest hockey supply in Southern Alberta TEAM DISCOUNT UP TO 45% WE CARRY: EQUIPMENT by CCM iN Ceopr SKATES by CCM, DllWt, Law Roos.

With Jimmy Wynn having his finest home runs and 108 Dodgers led the NL in homers with 139. They also hit .272, se- cond in the major leagues. "This isn't the same team I used to face in the National said Holtzman, who had a 14-5 record against the Dodgers when he pitched for Chicago Cubs. "This is a much stronger team." The Dodgers deal in power, pitching and speed, and their style closely parallels their opponents. Both teams have superlative running threats in Orioles rehire Weaver BALTIMORE (AP) Earl Weaver, who directed Baltimore Orioles to a fifth American League division ti- tle in six years, was rehired Friday for the 1975 season. Contract terms were not disclosed but Weaver is believed to have signed for an estimated representing a raise of about "Money was not an ob- Weaver said of his .negotiations with general manager J. Frank Cashen. "About 15 words were said over money. "Frank made me take a raise not a big one, but a lit- tle one although I wasn't sure I deserved one. Anyway, I'm happy. This will be my 19th year with the Baltimore organization, and they've treated me fairly all the time." "There was never any doubt in my mind that Earl would be Cashen said. "Winning five times in six years isn't too bad. "The only thing we have to do is figure out a way to beat Oakland. We gave them one hit Wednesday, and that didn't work." Cashen referred to the vic- tory by f Oakland in the final game of the American League championship series, when the A's won 2-1 while getting just one hit and beat Baltimore for the second year in a row. Since taking over the Orioles in the middle of the 1968 season, replacing Hank Bauer, Weaver has posted a .608 winning percentage with 634 victories and 408 defeats. From 1960 until the present, Weaver has managed 21 teams and has finished first or second with 19 of them. As a player, be spent his entire career in the minor leagues, mostly as a second baseman. the No. 1 and No. 2 batting positions: Dave Lopes, the Dodger leadoff batter, stole 58 bases during the season. No. 2 man Bill Buckner batted 314 and stold 31 bases. Bert Campaneris, the A's leadoff batter, had 34 steals and Bill North was the American League basesteal- ing champ, with 54. Both teams have explosive 34-5 hitters. Steve Garvey was the Dodgers' big run-producer with 111 RBI and Sal Bando led the A's with 113.- Despite the loss of John, the Dodgers boast an effective and sometimes overpowering pitching staff headed by Messersmith and Don Sutton, 19-9. Mike Marshall, who made a record 106 appearances, is the equal of any relief pitcher. The A's have three strong starters in Holtzman, Hunter and Vida Blue. Fingers heads the bullpen and probably is Marshall's equal, although he's not as active. The A's have a slight edge in defence in the outfield and in- field, but will have to be careful with the infield layout at Dodger Stadium. It is crushed brick, and baseballs leap into the outfield. "We're perfectly says Oakland coach Bobby Winkles, who predicted the series would go a full seven, games. A sellout crowd of is expected today. The second game is here Sunday with succeeding games next Tuesday, Wednes- day and Thursday in Oakland and next Saturday and Sunday in Los Angeles.
