Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE UTHBRIDGE HERAVD Sepftmber 20, 197J Alberta League drops interlocking schedule By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer There was some, good news out of Calgary Tuesday. News that made Doug Frier, manag- er of the Lellibridge Lakers of the Alberta Major Baseball League, very happy. Commissioner Russ Parker, of the six-team league, an- nounced that the Alberta group has voted to drop an interlock- ing agreement with the North- ern Saskatchewan B a s e ball League. He said the directors decided at a weekend meeting to em- ploy "utmost caution in consid- ering future expansion bids." "The general feeling seems to be the six teams prefer to work to improve upon the setup they now have." For this reason tiiej-wo-year Interlocking agreement with the Saskatchewan teams, will not be extended. "That's said Frier. "I knew it was coming up. Now we can concentrate on the bet- Patterson set, this could be it FLYING HOME Bools Day (8) of Montreal Expos flies safely to- wards home as Chicago Cubs cotcher Ken Rudolph awaits throw in third inning Tuesday at Chicago, Day scored on single Jorgensen.

Boston was hack on top of the pack today, thanks to some friendly clouds that dumped enough moisture on Fenway Park to force postponement of Tuesday night's scheduled game against Baltimore Ori- oles. The rainout meant the Red Sox couldn't lose-some- thing Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees did quite thor- oughly. Detroit, wliich had taken the lead the night before thanks to an open date on the schedule dropped a doubleheader to Cleveland Indians 3-2 and 6-4 to slip into a record place tie with Baltimore, one-half game be hind Boston. Fourth place New York lost to Milwaukee Brew ers 7-2, but with the Tigers los ing twice, the Yankees actually gained a half game on Detroif and remained 2'A games out ol 'irst place, now occupied by the Red Sox. Elsewhere, in the American league, Minnesota Twins lopped Texas Rangers 5-3, Kan- sas City Royals trimmed Cali- fornia Angels 7-2 and Chicago White Sox took Oakland Athlet- ics 8-7 in 15 innings. "I don't worry about the said Yankee man- ager Ralph Houk after watch- ing the last-place Brewers put the slug on New York. But the Scoreboard, with its news of Detroit's double defeat at Cleveland, was the only place Houk could find any solace Tuesday night. Bill Parsons throttled New York on six hits and George Scott and Johnny Briggs tagged consecutive homers for the Brewers. The loss didn't fa much for the Yankees' morale. New York still figures it has a break in the schedule with 10 of 12 re- maining games against Cleve- Lions visit Argonauts Theismann isn't ready TORONTO (CP) Normally i Joe Theismann's absence from the Toronto Argonaut lineup would be enough to send rival coaches frollicking to their pads In sheer anticipation of their next victim. Such is not the case for tonight though when the East- ern Conference Argos are host to British Columbia Lions of the Western Conference in a scheduled Canadian Football League interlocking game.

Third game of the bcst-of :even ssries will be played here Thursday night. New Westmin ster won the opening game on Sunday 13-8. Brantford opened quicklj with a 4-1 lead at one point ir he first period but New West- minster came hack to narrow the gap to 4-3 after 2 minutes. lis first tour In Toronto, Cahill vas confident Argos would be n capable hands. 'His play, execution and eadership have been said the Toronto coach. He didn't think it fair to blame the quarterback who en- countered only one bad quarter n three games. That was ttie 'inal 15 minutes against Ham- ilton when he three inter- ceptions and the Tiger-Cats won 22-18. KEYS HAS PROBLEMS B.C. coach Eagle Keys, how- ever, does have quarterbacking problems. Of the two In camp, Don Moorhead is the more ex- perienced though less spectacu- lar in Ms play'calling than new- comer Don Bunce. Bunce has hit on six touch- down passes to two for Moor- head on half as many throws, but his interception ratio one in 7.1 passes to 16.1 for Moorhead, second best in the CB'L to Edmonton Eskimo Tom Wilkinson's 25.0. One key problem Keys has faced in compiling a 1-7 record this year is the 12 new faces in the starting lineup com- plementing another 12 who are in only their second season with the Lions. "A lot of them ave going to be says Keys, "but they have to have time." Among the "good" rookies are Ron Esfay, a defensive e n d-tackle from Louisiana State, linebacker Ray Kettles frcm hack bama. land and the Brewers, the East tailenders. Of course, after what hap- pened to Detroit, the Yankees may have second thoughts over how sort a touch the Indians may be. Steve Dunning did in Detroit in the opener, cracking a home run and scattering nine hits be- fore Ed Farmer came out of the bullpen to nail down the victory. After beating Mickey Lollch in the opener, the Indians com- pleted the sweep as Graig Net- tles tagged his 17th homer of the year in the nightcap. Willie Horton accounted for three Tiger runs with a eighth inning homer. "You can't win if you don't score said man- ager Billy Martin. "And you don't score runs if you don't lit, which we didn't do." Four is Cincinnati Reds' pen- nant-winning magic number. The irrepressible Reds con- inued to roll toward the Na- ional League West pennant by beating San Francisco Giants 5- 1 Tuesday night. 'I said in the spring that we would win said Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson, 'and I still think so. I don't consider it over yet, though. We're going to have to go out and win those games." The Reds, with a juicy, _ame lead, need a combination of four victories and- Frier went on to say that he pleased with the news be- cause it will mean more games, a biggoT schedule for sure, and it should create better baseball. "I'm really chuckled the manager, "now we don't have to go back to North Bat- tleford. Lakers, on the only trip to North Battleford last got lost returning home. "It's ptretty said Frier, "to go to a baseball game and get lost In the wilds of Sas- katcheman." Frier went on to explain that he wasn't knocking the base- ball played by the 5aska_tchew- an clubs. "On tire he said. "They had some very good ball players. Maybe we can negoti- ate with a few to coma and play here next year."

(CP) Cliff Fletcher's first pet his mixed bag working on the pride anfile. "Let's face il, are few job when he assembled his new 1T professional athletes who don t Atlanta Flames for Na- he a 4-1 tional Hockey League training camp here was to instill a sense of pride in the combination of veterans and rookies. Fletcher, general manager of the new entry, and coach Ber- nie Geoffrion called a team meeting before they held a workout. "T told them they all had something to Fletcher said. "Most of them had been cul- led over for some reason o- an- now they had to show they belong in the league." That was a week ago, and now after two exhibition parries against the other new NHL en- try this York feels he's v.-in here Sunday and a 3-3 lie Monday night against the Islanders. Pride was goalie Phil Myre's problem last season and ably the basic reason why he ended with the expansion club. Drafted from Montreal, Myre year had his best training camp with the established Ca- nadiens. But he finished sitting on the bench behind Ken Pry- den, a condition that existed until Dec. 29 when he got into a and consid- ers Eily out of shape. Myre's reaction was lo sulk and ask to he traded. The Ca- nadicns complied and Isft him unprotected in the expansion draft. "Now I feel I'm part ol a Myre said. "You feel it's nice tc. know thai other people arc relying on you." The gonllcnder says he Is finding it tougli lo get in shape this year "because I was out of condition when I finished last season." He estimates he played SO NHL games in 2'A seasons with the Canadiens, TOUGH CASH' Myre says Geoffrion's camp Is one of the toughest he's been in, with two workouts a day, preceded by 20-minute exercise sessions. "We won't go out and win the Stanley Cup, but we should be able to hold our own against any team in the Myre says. "We have a lot of young players who can really skate ami that's whv it's been such a nood camp. There arc about 10 or 12 guys all fighting for posi lions." Fletcher agrees the Flames' key Is youth and speed. "We have 15 candidates try- ing out for forward positions and only Uv.-ee of them are over Fletcher says. "We don't have any super stars and we're obviously lacking in the goal- scoring department." Veteran defenceman Ron Karris, obtained from Detroit Red Wings, said the younger players have shoym plenty of speed and hustle. Ulyre agreed and noted that spirit on the club is excellent. The cornerstone of future At- lanla teams is forward Jacques Eichard, the Flames' No. 1 pick in tho amateur draft, after a strong junior career with Quebec Remparts, Richard is beginning lo feel at home at camp and has im- pressed both Geoffrion and Fletcher with Us skating.
