MAL'GATUCK NEWS (Conn.) Saturday. June I9 t 1976-Page 9 Bowie Declares Oakland Sale By KEN ROSENBERG UP1 Sports Writer NEW YORK <UPI) - Throughout the first eight S'ears of his tenure as baseball commissioner, Bowie Kuhn represented litlle more than a figurehead, a pawn in the owners' chess game, a man accused of being afraid to make a controversial decision. That was until Friday. Kuhn issued a statement, being hailed by many as a landmark decision that could very well shake the basic foundations of baseball, when he declared void the sales by Oakland owner Charlie Finley o! Vida Blue to the Yankees for $1-5 million and Joe Rudi and Rollie Fingers to the Red Sox for ?l million each. Kuhn conceded the ruling would touch off a series of lawsuits from (he clubs and players involved but thai (he sales were "inconsistent with the best interests of baseball, the in- legrily of the game and the maintenance of public conlidence in it." At (he crux of the matter, Kuhn objected to the Yankess and Ked Sox buying contracts of star players in (he prime of their careers (or cash sums. "If such transactions now and in the future were permilted," Kuhn said, "the door would beopenedwidelothebuyingofsuccessbythe more affluent clubs, public suspicion would le aroused, traditional and sound methods of player development and acquisition would be undermined and our efforts to preserve competitive balance would be greatly impaired." Finley called Kuhn a "village idiot," then . instructed his attorney, Neal Papiano of Los Angeles, lo institute suit against Ihe commissioner and baseball in federal court Monday charging restraint of trade. "Precedent has been established for many, many years, when Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees, when Joe Cronin was sold from Washington to Boston, so many, many limes on players being sold," cited Finley, who realizes he will receive no compensation if Kuhn's decision is upheld and the players become free agents. Marvin Miller, executive director of the players association, which presently is operating without a basicagreement with the owners, called Kuhn's action "sheer insanity," and charged that he has "single- handedly plunged baseball into the biggest mess it has ever seen." "I think Ihe potential in terms of Ihe damage to the best interest of the game is tremendous," Miller warned. "At the moment, just guessing, 1 would say it's done several Ihingl - it's raised the potential for litigation \fach would lasl for years and I think il has raised the potential which perhaps other owners do nol yet understand. "He is asserting a right to end all club owners' rights with respect to all transactions. Whenever (here's a trade made, he can decide that one team did not get enough \alue and he can veto that deal." Rudi and Fingers raturned lo the A's Frida y ni ghl, working out with the cl ub before the game, but were ordered off the field and out of uniform by Finley prior to the game. The two players had been in Red Sox uniforms for one game bul did not play. Schmidt Leads Phillies By NEIL IIERSHBERG UP! Sports Writer Mike Schmidt Friday night drove in (hree runs wilh a fifth- inning home run lo lead Philadelphia to a 6-5 victory over Ihe Cincinnati Reds in a bailie of National League divisional leaders. The high spot in the contest, however, was a play by Phillies' shortstop Larry Bowa thai no one, not even Bowa himself, would believe possible. Tony Perez hit a ball that looked like as though it would go between Bowa and third baseman Schmidt. However, Bowa went deep into Ihe hole, grabbed the ball and fired to first in lime to nip Perez. The crowd of 50,635-a season record-al Philadelphia's Veterans Memorial Stadium gave Bowa a standing ovalion. The importance of the play was highlighted when the nexl baiter, George Foster, hit his second homer of the night to move Cincinnati lo within one run of Ihe Phillies. "It was the best play I've ever made," said Bowa, well known for his defensive wizardry. "I don't see how I made it myself. Perei hit it hard and I was amazed when I got there. ! never saw a standing ovation for an infielder. If that's an indicalion ol whal a World Mahaffey Open Leader DULUni.

(UPl I Nobody's going to say John Mahaffey "chickened out" ol Ihis year's U.S. Open the way thev said he did lasl year. Mahalfey, a stroke ahead of runnerup Al Geiberger going into today's third round, feels he has something to prove, especially to himself. A year ago, al the Open at Medinah, III., he overcame a • six-stroke deficit in the final round to tie Lou Graham for the 72-hole lead, then lost in an 18-hole playoff because, by his own admission, he refused lo play aggressively, to take any dation also presented him with Jean Annable, reside in Orange, ,.j lhjn | ( ,, m more ,j e | er mined the Gold Medal Award in Conn.

Cozza and his wife, Ihe former happened lasl year," said the 28-year-old Texan, who had four second-place finishes and no victories last year. "1 had the Open in my hand last year and let it get away." He shot one of only Iwo 2- under-par 68s in Friday's second round over Ihe 7,015- yard Highlands Course outside of Atlanta and, at 2-under 138, is Ihe only other golfer besides Geiberger (139) oul of a starting field of 150 under par for 38 holes. His Thursday-Friday playing partner Ben Crenshaw had Ihe other 68, which he got with a wild, scrambling round, in stark contrast to Mahaffey's steady play, and lied for third at even-par 140 with Rod Funseth and Jerry Pale. Butch Baird. Hubert Green, Lyn Lot I, Mike Morley and J.C. Snead were at 142; Tom Weiskopf, Terry Diehl and Dave Eichelberger at 143; and Jack Nicklaus, the pre-tourna- menl favorite lo become Ihe fourth man to win four U.S. Opens, was alone al 144. The mowers were lowered Thursday evening so (here were no complaints Friday about the fairway grass being too long as there was after the opening round. Mike Reid, the 21-year-old amateur from Brigham Young University, who shot a 67 Thursday for Ihe only sub-par score in the opening round, took a bath Friday. He wound up with a fat 11-over-par 81. "It's pretty depressing," confessed the slender six-footer. "H's Ihe first round I've shot competitively in the 80s in four years." Aaron Belts 750th Homer To Pace Brewers Victory In Ihe Peter J.
