Players threaten Aug. 6 strike
Tuesday, July 16,1
CHICAGO (AP) — While major league baseball treats itself to the All-Star Game tonight in Minneapolis, its attention will also be focused on the possibility of a players’ strike in three weeks.
There had been speculation for weeks that the players association would boycott the All-Star Game to try to force a new collective bargaining agreement with club owners. But on Monday, the union instead set an Aug. 6 strike deadttne.
“There \^1 be a strike effective with games of that date if no agreement is reached,” said Donald Fehr, acting executive director of the players association.
“The players strongly considered not playing” the All-Star Game, Fehr said. “It’s not a players’ game. It’s not a fans’ game. It is one game that goes to the owners. Of the
television revenue that flows from that game, $2,176,000 goes to player pensions, and $20 million goes to the owners, plus the owners get the gate proceeds as well.”
But, Fehr said, the union decided to go ahead with the All-Star show because it is “a game the fans enjoy and want to see played.”
In Minneapolis, Lee MacPhail, president of management’s bargaining arm, the Player Relations Committee, said he regretted the strike decision.
“We are and have been ready to collectively address the problems confronting us,” MacPhail said. “We do not want a strike. It would be a failure on both our parts and unfair to our fans.
“We will make every reasonable effort consistent with our obligation to the game and the public to reach an agreement before the
Aug. 6 deadline.”
Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth said he hoped a strike could be adverted.
“I think both sides are well represented,” Ueberroth said. “For the fans’ sake especially, I hope the negotiations will go very well.”
Marvin Miller, the former excutive director of the union who led the players’ 50-day strike four years ago, said, “In 1981, they had the belief the players would fold in six days. That wasn’t an accurate position. I hope they learned from that.”
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Jerry Reuss, an advisor to the union, said, “We set the date with the intention of forcing them to do something.
“There was discussion as to other dates but when all was said and done, we decided Aug 6 was the best collective date.”
Fehr called the strike date firm and said that progress at the negotiating table without an agreement by then probably would not prevent a walkout. “Speculation is not productive,” he said.
The players want management to maintain the traditional one-third slice of the television rights revenue for the union’s pension and benefit plan. The owners have resisted that after signing a record $1.1 billion broadcast deal far exceeding previous contracts.
The clubs also claim to be losing money, saying their books show $43 million in losses last year. The players’ analysis, however, shows profits of about $10 million.
The next bargaining session is set for Thursday in New York.

may go to Reds
ARLINGTON (AP) - Texas Rangers third baseman Buddy Bell probably will be dealt to the Cincinnati Reds today for a package of young players, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported, quoting sources close to the negotiations.
The newspaper said that the deal reportedly wasn’t finalized, but that it appeared likely that Cincinnati — Bell’s first choice all along — had emerged from an original pack of IO clubs he had agreed to be traded to, the newspaper said.
“Exactly whom the Reds would give up was unclear, but possibilities included 28-year-old outfielder Duane Walker, who had also asked to be traded, and one to three pitchers from a group of Paul O’Neill, Jeff Russell, Fred Toliver, Rob Murphy, Bob Buchanan, Jay Tibbs or Kal Daniels.” the newspaper added.
Bell, who must approve the deal before it can go through, insisted he had not yet done that but has made it clear he would be happy to go home to Cincinnati, where he was raised and still lives, the newspaper said.
“The only thing I can tell you is that there were four or five teams who w ere still interested the last time I talked to i Rangers General Manager* Tom Grieve,” Bell said from his in-season Arlington home. “I think Cincinnati lias had an interest all along.” .
Cincinnati manager Pete Rose, in Minneapolis for the All-Star Game, was playing down the likelihood the Reds would obtain the perennial Gold Glover, who asked the Rangers last week to trade him.
• He's a helluva player, but they want a lot,” Rose said at Monday’s All-Star Game workout. “You can’t bust up your team for one player. You may get one player, but you can’t give up two or three. And that’s what they ’re talking about.”
The Reds are one of several teams who have spoken to Bell’s agent. Ed Keating, to find out what it will take to renegotiate the third baseman’s contract, the Star Telegram said.
