Details of death threat to Brock, McBride told CHICAGO (AP) Outfielder Lou Brock of St. Louis Cardinals revealed Sunday the details of a letter received last week threatening his life and that of team-mate Bake McBride. "I've been asked a lot of questions and have avoided answering Brock said at a news conference prior to the baseball game against Chicago Cubs. "I thought a press conference, revealing all the details, would take some of the pres- sure off me." He was sure the threat had affected his play but, "to what extent I don't know." Also attending the news conference was Bing Devine, general manager of the Car- dinals, who described security details which have been taken in St. Louis, Chicago and Montreal, where the Car- dinals wind up the regular season in a three-game series beginning Monday. The letter, dated Sept. 18, had a St. Louis postmark and was received and opened by the Cardinals Sept. 20. It contained numerous racial slurs and obscene language. It said in part: "By beating out the (Pittsburgh) Pirates this year you're costing me a winnings I would have had as the result of a bet at large odds I placed on them to win back in April when they were already counted out even by the odd- smakers. 'This is no idle threat: If I think so I can assure you that neither of you will live past the third, fourth or fifth playoff game whether it be in L.A. or Cincy. "I have only a month or two to live: I have a brain the pain will my doctor advises me increase the last month to the intolerable stage: I do not intend to go through that agony: I had hoped to be able to leave my wife and children that therefore, since you damn Cardinals are taking it away from me, I've decided to take me. I'll have a revolver loaded with six shots and be in the stands close enough to get you both and save the last shot for myself as since suicide is my only way agony is not going to be mine. "I am going to follow you to St. Louis, Chicago, Montreal and L.A. and Cincy if I decide to wait until the end meanwhile you two can sweat it out wondering whether I'm going to make my move in St. wait til til Mon- treal or wait til L.A. or Cin. I'm going to let you sweat it out but I assure you I'm going to kill you both so every time you go out to the outfield you can look anxiously towards the stands for I'll be there and be sure to say goodbye to your family each morning for between now and the next two weeks or so you will have said goodbye for the last time." Devine lauded St. Louis police for the "tremendous and helpful job" and said the FBI has been on the case from the outset. He said the Chicago police have been "ex- tremely helpful" and said he assumes that the same co-operation will be received from law enforcement agencies in Canada.
