Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 13, 197J THE tfTHBRIDGE HERALD Tiger Stadium teas saved, so to speak, by Oakland A's And suddenly, the robust Detroit fans were quiet TI.V men SMITH Ntw Vork Times Service DETROIT The Green Bay Packers engage the Detroit Lions at football next Monday night, and thanks to people named Blue Moon Odom, Vida Blue, Reggie Jackson and Fury (Gene) Tenace they will have a field lo play on. There were and sports- women in Tiger Sladium Thurs- day prepared lo honor the Ti- gers as champions of the Am- erican League by tearing the playpen apart in obedience to the established baseball conven- tion. They were excused from vandalism, however, the Oakland A's won the fiflh am deciding game of the pennanl playoff, 2-1, largely through th A tic- has been accepted by the Ed- be capable circular coliseum monlon Exhibition Association [trade shows EDMONTON fCP> sign for seating for hockey panics of holding large and exhibitions.

Oakland won Thursday on the strong arms of John (Blue Moon) Odom and Vida Blue )lus some questionable Tigei iielding and the running o Jackson and his replacement George Hendrick. Odom gave up ar unearned run in tbe first in in pitching a Uvo-hitter for fiv frames before getting an upse stomach. Blue finished the jo with a lightning fastball, allow iug three harmless singles picking up the save. "This club is the greatest and Ihe said Williams, who managed Oakland to a West Di- vision title last year before los- ing to Baltimore Orioles in the playoffs. "This was the biggest game of all our careers." TIGEHS DEJECTED Heads were drooped and dis- positions somber in the opposite clubhouse, where Tiger man- ager Bill Martin said of his players, who edged Boston for the East Division title: "I was pretty proud of them. They played like champions." Campaneris, suspended by league president Joe Cronin for the last three playoff games for throwing a bat at Del roil pitcher Lerrin LaGrow, joined in the Oakland post-game bed- lam hut wasn't saying much. It learned Thursday night that baseball commis- SULLY SAYS I -Ry Sullivan 1 N MORE than, one occasion I have been told, by good authority, to bet wilh my head, and not with my heart. H is a tough habit lo break. It happened again in the baseball playoffs that ended Thursday. Having a soft spot in my heart, besides the one in my head, for Detroit Tigers, 1 selected them as my American League choice. I had no choice in betting Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League. Actually, I was hoping 1 would break even in my bets. I have never been a supporter of Charles Finley, owner of the Oakland Athletics, so it was easy to say Tigers in the American League. A good bet. Sparky Anderson, who I had the privilege of meel- wg at the 1971 Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner, struck me as a fine gentleman. He had just come off a tough loss to Baltimore Orioles in the World Series in Oct. 1970. Not that it was a tough say a seven game after a great struggle. Anderson's Cin- cinnati Reds went down four-to-one in a series where the Reds had no pitching to speak of after injuries and a tough pennant battle. -A- 1 don't like lo see one team dominate things, so I was willing to let Cincinnati take the National League crown if my Tigers won the American League title. As it turned out, I ended up pulling for the wrong club, Wednesday. When Pittsburgh was leading 3-2 in the nijith inning, I was in front of the TV urging the Reds on. It worked, they won the National League berth in the World Series. Then I saw the rest of my chances go out the window when the Athletics edged the Tigers 2-1 Thursday. Oakland now meets Cincinnati in the best-of-seven World Series which opens in Cincinnati Saturday. Actually, I'm sure after the initial shock wears off, I'll find it good that the Athletics won. They haven't been in a World Series since 1D31 when they were in Philadelphia. Tigers, on Ihe other hand, won the world title in 19G8 by beating the St. Louis Card- inals. My losses, while they may sound like a lot. were very small. And for the brand of baseball in the last two days of both series, it was well worth the small financial setback.

Maybe it's to my advantage. Now the fellows who picked my pocket with their bets face the dilemma of choosing between Iheir initial two choices. I would have to say, at the inomemt, I am split in which way to go for the World Series. Anyone who can find a solid enough line between the Reds and Athletics to bet one side or the other is beyond me. Possibly I'm having my trouble because not bet- ting with my head, my heart is. out of this year's classic. What i Iliink I will clo is just sit back, enjoy the action and say may Iho bcsl team win. It may be an easy way out, but 1 liavc never tried it before. It just may be "enjoyable.
