Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Friday, 27, 1974 CHRISTMAS IN DISNEYLAND to ChooM from Starting 20th PrlcM, ate.. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Phono 32I-3201 Herald- Sports Pat Sullivan A bit of everything... You may find this hard.to believe but it looks as though I have missed my guess again No one thought much about it when Cleveland Indians acquired Frank Robinson from California Angels as a designated hitter Now, according to sources close to the Cleveland scene, it would appear the Robinson may have been obtained to succeed Ken obtained to succeed Ken Aspromonte as man- ager next season Robinson's contract, a reported a year, has been renewed through 1975, a little much for a designated hitter I would think And here I thought, and almost would have bet, that Hank Aaron would become the first black manager in major league baseball... Do you know what they call a child genius these days? Any youngster who can name all the teams in professional football.. Not all the heads of players on the Philadelphia Flyers are as hard as rocks Often referred to as a gathering of cement heads, at least one of them has a soft spot Ed Van Impe suffered an 18 stitch gash on his head when he banged into the glass He isn't expected to miss any action as result of the bump You'll remember the Canada Russia series of 1972 when Paul Henderson slammed into the boards and banged his head.. Henderson still says his helmet saved him from serious injury I watched young Jerry Bancks of Calgary, at the Lethbridge Broncos tryout camp, crash into the boards much in the same fashion as Henderson and, while shaken up, was able to skate away under his own power I talked to him after and he told me he had considered leaving it on the bench because some of the other guys had done so Now what does he think7 "I'll never be caught on the ice without one again." A harness racing driver grounded by the FAA? That's right, the Federal Avia- tion Association has grounded Herve Filion and his helicopter Filion, looking for career wins, flies his copter from track to track But not anymore, now he fights the traffic... Media madness is at it again... This time it's football... Next Thursday evening the Media Turf Toughies and that's an ex- ageration if I have ever heard one will take on a team selected from the ranks of the Lethbridge Minor Football League The proceeds from the game will go to the associa- tion and according to officials of the game the referees, caretaker and city police have given freely of their time to help out the cause... Something I didn't know is that it costs nearly per evening of football action at Henderson Lake... I can recall the last Media vs Minor Football game we played I ripped a good pair of slacks, got kicked in the head and missed a touchdown by 110 yards And I wasn't 20 pounds overweight. You didn't believe me when I told you the Los Angeles Dodgers would be in the World Series this year did you? Well, tney are going to be, mark my words this time... Besides having the best record in baseball at this time, 98-58, they will be as healthy come playoff time as they have been all year It is reported, that Jim Brewer and Tommy John both are expected back in the lineup in time for post season play I feel sorry for Cincinnati Red fans to have come so close Oh well, now Pete Rose can spend all winter wondering why he didn't hit .300 again Maybe it's because he spent all his time telling everyone how the Reds would catch the Dodgers instead of concentrating on his hitting. Swim Club's best The Lethbridge Amateur Swim Club held their awards banquet recently and these happy youngsters came away with the major awards. Robbie Tietz (left) was named the club's outstanding male swimmer of last year and the 11-year-old also earned the Gordon Babick Memorial Trophy for the outstanding single performance of the year. Robbie's breaking of the Rangers could hear champagne corks, Oakland within game of division title ASSOCIATED PRESS Oakland Athletics moved to within the pop of a champagne bottle cork of their fourth con- secutive division title Thurs- day night with a 2-1 victory over Minnesota Twins. And they hope to pop it tonight. "I'm not even going to talk about the playoffs until we said As Manager, Alvin Dark. "Ken Holtzman will pitch tomorrow night (against Chicago) and then after that, if we win, we'll worry about the playoffs." The A's haven't won, but they have clinched at least a tie for the American League West Division title. Thur- sday's victory coupled with Chicago's 5-1, 7-2 doubleheader triumph over Texas took care of that. Oak- land now leads the Rangers by six games. The A's would have to lose their last five games and Texas win their last seven to force a playoff for the division championship. Elsewhere, Boston Red Sox beat Detroit Tigers 5-3 in 10 innings and Kansas City Royals swamped California Angels 10-1.

With veteran Juan Pizarro turning in eight solid innings of pitching, the Pirates muscl- ed their way into a share of first place in the East with idle St. Louis Cardinals. Each team has six games remaining. In the first inning, the Pirates scored four runs. Singles by Rennie Stennett, Manny Sanguillen and Oliver scored one run, then Stargell belted his homer into the right-field seats. The winning runs came one inning later when Stennett sin- gled again and Oliver homered for a 6-0 lead. Three more runs in the fifth, one on Stargell's single, and Oliver's second homer, in the sixth, sealed the victory. Meanwhile, in the National League West, Los Angeles Dodgers reduced their pen- nant-clinching number to two, beating San Diego Padres 5-2 in 10 innings. The second- place Cincinnati Reds kept their faint hopes alive, ripping Houston Astros 10-6. Dodgers' Ron Cey broke a 2- 2 tie in the 10th with a two-run double off the left field wall, then scored on Bill Russell's single. San Diego's Dave Win- field had sent the game into extra innings with a homer, his 19th, with one out in the ninth off Dodgers' relief ace Mike Marshall, 15-12. Despite'the Reds' victory, Cincinnati Manager Sparky Anderson said, "I can't feel very optimistic. Phone ROY MclNTOSH at 328-9271 Kino CHRYSLER DODGE JO 3rd AVI. tnd 11th St. S. 328-9271 Catfish Hunter hurled a seven-hitter for Oakland to notch his 25th victory, the most for an American League pitcher since Mickey Lolich won 25 for Detroit in. 1971. Hunter, who has lost 12, struck out seven batters and didn't walk a man Jim Kaat posted his 20th victory with a five-hitter in the opener against Texas and Jorge Orta drove in three runs. Kaat, who became the ninth 20-game winner in the American League this season, has allowed just two earned runs while winning six games in September. Jim Bibby, 19-19, failed in his bid to join the 20-win circle in the nightcap as Bill Stein and Bill Sharp drove in two runs apiece for the White Sox. Bob Montgomery sent the game into extra innings with a two-run homer in the ninth and then ended it with a two- run single in the 10th. Both of Montgomery's hits came off Tiger relief ace John Hiller. The victory kept Boston's fading East Division title hopes alive, but barely. The third-place Red Sox trail Baltimore by four games with just six to play. Hal McRae clubbed a grand slam home run and Steve Busby notched his 22nd vic- tory for Kansas City. Busby, who has lost 14, struck out eight batters and walked two. George Brett added four hits and two runs-batted-in for the Royals.

Bulldogs, Cougars set, Rams play Saturday Henderson Stadium will be the scene of the most impor- tant game thus far in the Southern Alberta High School Foot- ball League tonight at 8. The undefeated Winston Churchill Bulldogs will be up against the undefeated Catholic Central High Cougars and the winner will move into undisputed possession of first place in the league's western conference. Both Bulldog coach Pete Neufeld and Cougar mentor Dean Dahl look- for a close game. The Bulldogs have never finished first in the league and coach Neufeld feels this is the year for his club. He stressed the great spirit his boys have and pointed out that he expects his running backs to carry more of the load. "Jerry Areshenko is fit to play and when he's running well he compliments our passing coach Neufeld said. Coach Dahl is looking for a wide open contest and feels his big line and his big running backs can do the job for him. Saturday night the LCI Rams, currently in the un- familiar position of last place in the west division, will be looking for their first win of the season. The Rams will be going against the high scoring Cres- cent Heights club from Medicine Hat. Crescent Heights easi- ly won their first two games by lopsided margins over the two Hat teams. The question the Rams face is just how good is Crescent Heights. Medicine Hat teams have never won the league championship but if the high flying Crescent Heights team is for real then the Rams will have their hands full. The concensus of opinion with the Lethbridge coaches is that the Heights have a good offence but have yet to face a good' defence. The Rams proved in their 7-0 loss to the Bulldogs last week that they have a strong defence. Most footballers feel the Rams will bounce back against the Medicine Hat club and hit the win column for the first time this season. Game time for both games is 8 p m ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL St York Montreal New Los Houston San San Diego THURSDAY'S RESULTS Los Angeles 000 000 110 San Diego 010 000 001 Rau, Marshall (15-12) (7) and Ferguson, Yeager Freisleben.
