Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta B _ THl IHHBRIDOI HERAIU Tnuuelciy, !0, 1970- McLain Had Everything Going For Him In Baseball What A Difference Two Years Can Make NEW YORK (AP) Only two years ago, Demy McLain had tire world in his hands. He was baseball's brightest star. He had fame, wealth and tal- ent, and a future that promised only more of Uie same. Today, Denny McLain is sit- ting disconsolately somewhere, probably with only his head ill his hands. In six short months he had turned into baseball's bad boy. He is criticized, he is broke and IBS future is riddled with doubt. It all came to a climax Lakeshore Coach Not Impressed PORT CREDIT, Ont. (CP) Lakeshore Maple Leafs won their third straight game in the best-of-seven series for the na- tional Junior A lacrosse champi- onship Wednesday night but Uie team's general manager is a bit disappointed: "We would have liked to play a stronger Boyd Bara- gar said after his Leafs downed Bombers Troubles Increase Burnaby Cablevision 14-8 in the third game for the Minto Cup. "I like good lacrosse and I would have preferred to play a better team." The Leafs swept the first game of the series Sunday 22-6 and the second game Tuesday 25-13. Wednesday afternoon when baseball commissioner Bowie Kiilin suspended the Detroit Ti- gers pitcher for at least the re- mainder of the 5970 season. It was McLain's third suspen- sion this year, and the words "at least" give some cause to think that this one might extend even longer than the 1970 sea- son. All Kiihn would say in an- nouncing the suspension after a meeting with McLain and De- troit officials was that it was "pending further proceedings, WINNIPEG (CP) Ks Nielsen, Winnipeg Blue Boml ers' star flanker, today wa placed on the 30 day injurj list because of a disc problem in Ms neck. The Western Football Confe ence club's doctors advised es tensive treatment for the in jury which has kept the bri liant pass catcher in pain an discomfort since last season. It remained uncertain wheth er NioiSiiu will be back this season with the Bombers, cur rently in last place with win in seven games. His place probably will taken by Glen Orris in Sunday's game against Lions in Vancouver. In another development, Bex B.C the Bombers announced they havi claimed quarterback Carrol Williams who was put on waiv ers by the Lions. General manager Earl Luns ford said he doubted Williams will report and if not, he wH be placed on the club's sus- pended list. Nielsen's departure means tte Bombers now have lost both their all-star players. Mid- dle linebacker Phil Minnick, the defensive kingpin, is out for the season after a knee operation.

He said the Burnaby team has become stronger in the last two games and "we but added that he felt Uie B.C. team isn't a match for lu's players. "They should have never made it down here (to On- he said. FAULTS LEAGUE Tlie fault lies partly with the B.C. lacrosse league, he said. "They., haven't had enough competiton out there, otherwise they could have been stronger. "Their problem is that they don't protect their junior play- ers. Junior clubs in B.C. get raided by the seniors. Not here. We have protection here." Burnaby managed a 4-4 tie in the first period of the game but Lakeshore charged into a 10-5 ad in the second period. Brian McCutcheon and Robbie Patten led the Leafs with three oals each and Paul Suggate, Bill Foots and Ron McNaughton scored two apiece. Other Leafs goals came from Charlie Hen- derson and Joe Timpson. Rick Omar scored twice for he visitors and Jack Kastelein. iill Longman, Brian Bergum, Dave Taylor, John Brassington and Doug Hayes collected one goal each. Lakeshore oulshot Burnaby 55-42. Coach Clark Pulford of the said the western team's erformance was much better Jian in the first two games. "It was a more respectable ame and a more respectable core." Delminico, who coaches ha Burnaby team, said it took is players time to adjust to the arena and the style of their astern opponents. His team is used to playing a .ore "methodical, scientific he said. "But now we ire playing their ist and get the goals." which by agreement of counsel will nol take place before the end of the season." McLain slipped away without comment, and Kuhn requested Detroit officials not to talk about the suspension. SAY CARRIED GUN Kuhn did say, in his state- ment, that "certain new allega- tions have been brought to my attention, including allegations regarding M c L a i n's conduct with respect to the Detroit man- agement and information th.it on occasions McLain has car- ried a gun." It represented the final blow to the 26-year-old right-hander, who, in 1968, became the first pitcher since 1834 to win 30 games in one season. He be- came the toast of baseball, the Cy Young Award winner. Last year, he was almost as good, winning 24 games and sharing the Cy Young Award with Mike Cuellar of Baltimore Orioles as the American League's top pitcher. But then the bottom fell out when he was implicated with gamblers and suspended in the ipring until July 3. Then, on Aug. 28, he doused two Detroit iports writers with ice water, a prank, and drew 'a one-week suspension from tire Tigers. Missing all of spring training and most of the season, in his )rief period on the mound he managed only a 3-5 record with a 4.73 earned-run average.

Tarasov, who recently participated in a coaching symposium sponsored by the British Columbia Ama- teur Hockey Association in Vancouver, said he had wanted to watch the Leafs' 45-minute skating and shoot- ing session for pleasure rather than for new Meas. Instead, he answered re- porters' questions Ihroifgh the translation of iUajika Foguol, an attractive 22- year-old Russian who emi- grated to Canada tliree mouths ago.

Homeniuk, who trailed Wake- ham by two strokes after the first round of play, carded a one-under-par 67 in Wednes- day's round to tie Wakeham who had a one-over-par 69. Both had 36 hole totals of 137. In the final 18 holes, Homen- iuk had a three-stroke lead over Wakeham, carding a one-under 33 on the front nine. He finished out the round in regulation 34, picking up nine points. Wakeham finished with a 30 on the front nine. Coming home, he finished with a 33. In the playoff, Homeniuk hit the green with a four wood on his second shot while Wakeham took three shots to get on. Hom- eniuk then putted for his Wakeham two-putted to go one over par.

Wood was knocked uncon- scious. Argos' next game is Sunday, a return engagement against the Riders. Toronto won Mon- day's encounter 37-21. Referee Harry Ross, who ejected Harrington, also penal- ized the Argos 25 yards. Toronto coach Leo Cahill, after watching films of the play, said: "He did it, all right, but I've never heard of a player being ejected for hitting someone with a forearm." Eskimo officials were not im- mediately available for com- ment. As of Labor Day, the Eskimos "were virtually eliminated from the Western Football Confei ence playoffs with a record two wins and six losses." Edmonton is in fourth plac( four points behind British Co' umbia Lions who hold down th last playoff spot in the five team conference. "This is the result of a seven year rebuilding Ov erland says, adding that a shareholder uprising could be brewing in the community owned club. FACE MANY PROBLEMS "Some of the' estimated 150 shareholders are attempting obtain copies of the constitution and share lists to find out wha steps can be taken to shake up the board of directors." "There is no easy answer to what has happened to the Es- kimos. The organization has problems with directors, man- agement, coaching and play- ers." Overland quoted Al Irwin, an Eskimo end last year now prac- tising law in Toronto as saying: "Eskimos will never win until they get rid of the cancer at the top." The problems were with the concept the Eskimo board had of its responsibilities. There were two concepts community-owned club could adopt. One was best demon- strated by Calgary Stampeders which held directors' meeting infrequently and had given gen- eral manager Rogers Lehew sweeping powers. "The other concept is demori- straled by the Eskimo board which meets frequently during the season and has several com- mittees' which are activo. The result has been to reduce general manager Norm Kimball to the role of office boy." Good Crowds OTTAW (CP) As a power- house in the Eastern Football Conference, Ottawa Rough Ri- ders had trouble drawing big crowds in their home park.
