Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 - TH8 LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, October 16, 1970 All The Clouds Roll By For The Neiv Champions World Series Bonanza For B By DICK COUCH BALTIMORE (AP) - All the clouds have rolled by for Baltimore Orioles, basking in a shower of champagne after they turned a rainy payday into a World Series bonanza. The Orioles battered Cincinnati Reds 9-3 Thursday at rain-drenched Memorial Stadium to complete a five-game blitz of baseball's 67th summit battle, pocket winners' shares of $15,COO-plus per player and rid themselves of the stigma of last year's series setback at the hands of the upstart New York Mets. "It's payday, and we had to come out to pick up our BIG DAY - Baltimore manager Earl Weaver rides on Cloud Nine in the Oriole dressing room after piloting his Orioles to the World Series title Thursday. Short Sport NEW FULLBACK EDMONTON (CP) - Edmonton Eskimos will have a new fullback when they play the Blue Bombers in Winnipeg Saturday night. The club announced Thursday that Jim Mankins will replace R. C. Gamble, who played three games for Edmonton after being picked up from Boston' Patriots of the National Football League. ? ? ? GARRETT TRADED KANSAS CITY (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs announced Thursday they have traded running back Mike Garrett to San Diego Chargers for a second-round NFL draft choice in 1971. Garrett has said he does not plan to play professional foot- ball after this season but will pursue a major league baseball career with Los Angeles Dodgers next spring. ? ? ? RECORD PURSES EDMONTON CP) - A record $1,612,8% in purses was distributed during the 1970 season to owners of thoroughbreds competing on tracks operated by the Western Canada racing Association. ? * + SHARE LEAD SYDNEY, Australia (CP-AP) - Bruce Devlin of Australia and expatriate American Ron Howell shot identical four-un-der-par 68s Thursday to share the first-round lead of the Wills Masters Open golf tournament here.

Baltimore's fourth victory in five games closed out the best- of-seven series and gave the-Orioles whopping bonuses in addition to their regular, twice-monthly pay envelopes. Moreover, it vindicated their claim to major-league supremacy after a year of attrition. "The money is a great reward but the personal satisfaction of being the best ball club means illing ^HERE is absolutely no reason to go into any great detail pin-pointing why the Baltimore Orioles rule supreme today in the field of professional baseball. The Orioles authored their own glittering conclusion to their 1970 success story by slapping down Cincinnati Reds in five games in a somewhat surprising World Series, leaving little to the imagination in rolling to what even American League critics must admit was a most impressive victory. In a nutshell, the Orioles won because, obviously, they were, in the final analysis, the best team. And they were the best team because, if you'll pardon the expression, they put it all together when the chips were down. Baltimore destroyed the National League champions with what was actually a superb, all-round performance. They battered the Reds' sore-armed pitching staff, they out-muscled the opposition with a five-game record of 10 home runs compared to five by the Reds, and led by brilliant Brooks Robinson, the incomparable one, their defence sparkled like the casino lights in downtown Las Vegas. As the old sports adage says, they came to play, and play they did in their whirlwind bid to redeem themselves for last year's setback to the Miracle Mets in the fall classic. Don't, however, be too hasty to knock the Reds. Like the Orioles of one year ago, they are a much better team than their series record indicates. They were hit hard when ailing arms nearly wrecked their pitching staff, and except for Lee May, Baltimore moundsmen rose to the occasion by silencing Cincinnati's big bats, the biggest factor of all in the Reds' march to the pennant. The Reds are young, they're tough and they're talented. In fact even though only a day has passed since the final victory, I think it's a good bet that the two teams will meet in a rematch next October. And one other thing. Is the World Series, the supposed granddaddy of all sports classics, beginning to lose some of its appeal? There were over 6,000 empty seats in the ball park for Thursday's clincher. + * * iQJME OF THE MOST interesting high school football duels in quite a spell is billed for Henderson Park tonight when Pete Neufeld's Winston Churchill Bulldogs tackle Jim Whitelaw's LCI Rams ... a loss for either club means elimination from the playoff race, and for that reason alone the game shapes up as one of those naturals ... it should be a dandy with kickoff time eight o'clock at Henderson Park . . . coming up Saturday night and Sunday afternoon at the Arena will be Lethbridge Sugar Kings' second homestand of the Alberta Junior Hockey League campaign . . . John Chapman's squad meets Red Deer Saturday night and Ponoka Sunday ... a battle for first place is already developing among Calgary Mount Royal, Red Deer and the Kings, who, actually, are off to a fine start with three wins, one loss and a tie in their first five starts . . . the office wit says the trouble with telling a good story is that it always reminds the other guy of a dull one. ? ? * With bread-and-butter man George Reed on the sidelines for likely the rest of the season with a hairline fracture of his leg, will his loss be a telling blow to Saskatchewan's chances of representing the West in the Grey Cup once again? . . . just thought I'd ask . . . After fluking a perfect four-for-four last weekend, the football picks for upcoming games are Hamilton over Ottawa and Edmonton over Winnipeg Saturday with Toronto beating Montreal and Saskatchewan toppling Calgary Sunday . . . Wednesday, it's B.C., if the Lions have recovered from that shocker in Montreal, over Winnipeg . . . Local minor hockey, as is, unfortunately, always the case, needs people to help out in this year's operations . . . parents, stand up and be counted just for a change . . . the office wit says anybody who thinks that this is a man's world probably doesn't understand a lot of other things either. Donato Paduano Records Close But Unanimous Win TORONTO (OP) - In a battle that had the crowd on its feet and cheering before the final bell, Canadian welterweight champion Donato Paduano of Montreal Thursday night took a unanimous, but close decision over Colin Fraser of Toronto in a 10-round non-title bout. There were no knockdowns and, under the eight-point must system, the referee and ons judge had it 49-43 for Paduano while the other judge called it 49-47 for the Montrealer. Paduano, fifth-ranked welter contender in the world, went in at 152V2 pounds and had pouches of flesh around the hips to show for it. Fraser was a lean and hard 147- A break-even crowd of about 5,000 saw Fraser carry the fight to Paduano from the opening bell.

"This makes up for everything," said Brooks Robinson, whose clutch hitting and sensational defensive play earned him landslide acclaim as the most valuable player in the series. "Nothing can replace winning for the first time 1966, but there's more satisfaction bouncing back to do it again." The Orioles, beaten in five games by the Mets last October, rebounded with 108 regular season wins-the last 11 in succession-then swept the American League pennant playoffs in three games and won three more from the Reds before Lee May's three-run eighth inning homer snapped the 17-game streak Wednesday. That victory kept Cincinnati alive, but the Orioles applied the death blow Thursday as Cuellar shackled the Reds on six hits. "This year, we had a little added incentive," said Paul Blair, whose nine hits matched Brooks Robinson's record-tying total for a five-game series. "We worked harder to make things go our way. "The Mets did everything they had to do to win last year -just like we did in this Series. But I don't think we played up to our capability against them." The Orioles scored two runs in the second to take the lead and added two more in the third, another in the fifth on Merv Rettenmund's homer and a final pair in the eighth. Blair and Dave Johnson led the assault against six Cincinnati pitchers with three hits apiece. "We had deep respect for the Reds but I think we caught them short on pitching," said Brooks Robinson who received a new car as the series MVP following his 9-for-21, two-homer binge. "S'ure, we used 18 pitchers in the series," said Red Manager Sparky Anderson. 'But I've got to do what the scoreboard shows. They just kept hitting us. Give Baltimore batters the credit. The Orioles banged out 50 hits in the five games. Their 10 home runs set a record for a five-game set. "Baltimore just came out hungry and whipped us," Anderson said. "I think they went out to prove something this year, and they did. They had to live all year with the fact that the Mets beat them. "I know how Earl must feel. He's on Cloud Nine. He had to eat crow last year. Now I'm eating crow." "This is just a superb ball club, an outstanding ball club," Weaver said as his players revelled in a champagne-splash-i n g, shaving cream-squirting victory party-and caravans of horn-tooting cars began clogging the downtown streets in a wild celebration of the Orioles' second world championship.

WE MADE IT-Baltimore pitching star Mik e Cuellar raises his arms in victory as he rushes to meet World Series hero Brooks Robinson following Thursday's clinching win over Cincinnati. Bulldogs Tackle Rams A Big One Tonight The battle for playoff berths in the Southern Alberta High School Football League has reached the win-or-else stage with the action continuing at Henderson Park tonight at eight o'clock. With only two games left, none of the three positions in the three-team league have been determined. That, however, will very likely change tonight as Winston Churchill Bulldogs take on the LCI Rams. Heading into tonight's key battle, Catholic Central Cougars lead with four points, the Bulldogs have three and the Rams one with the Cougars and Rams winding up regular league play next Friday- At the moment, all three teams have a crack at first place, but the loser of tonight's game will be shunted to the sidelines. In the case of the Rams, if they lost tonight and beat the Cougars in the final game they would finish with three points, not good enough to match either the Cougars or Bulldogs. Grid Awards Date Is Set MONTREAL (CP) - Canada's annual football awards pageant, at which the top overall player, top Canadian and outstanding lineman will be named, will be held in Toronto Nov- 26, two days before the Grey Cup championship game there. Hal Tingle, administrative coordinator for the awards, said tabulation of the first ballot-giving one choice in each category from each of the nine teams in the Canadian Football League - will be announced Tuesday. Result of the second ballot, which selects the best player in each category from each conference, will be announced Nov. 3. The winners are chosen by a vote of football writers and broadcasters.

A tie tonight would force the issue right down to the final game and a points for-and-against basis might have to be employed to determine the final berth. As league commissioner Bill Johnson sums it up, "it's a great way to end the schedule and set the stage for the championship final."
