Tyrone Daily Herald. Wednesday> Jiily 20* 1988 P&ge Five Scheduling Dispute: •Syracuse In Jeonan .Hy STEVE SCHAKPER SYRACUSE, N.Y. (UPI) - The 66-year-old college football rivalry between Eastern independent Syracuse and Pehn State is ih jeopardy, because of a dispute over scheduling, athjetic directors said Tuesday. Pehn State insists on ending the present system of switching home sites each year after the current contract between the schools expires in 1990. That proposed change is not acceptable to Syracuse, said Orangemen Athletic Director Jake Crouthamel. ;'My position is that I cannot, ih all fairness to the team, the coaches and our fans, put them at a disadvantage," Crouthamel said. "It's tough enough going there and playing those folks ... once every other year." Penn State, a national power, is asking all of its opponents to switch from home-and-home series as their contracts expire, said Nittany Lions Athletic Director Jim Tarman. Boston College, Rutgers and Temple have all given Perm Stable an additional home game, Tarman said. Penn State needs two extra home games from Syracuse to accomplish its scheduling goals, he said. Although Penn State would like to continue the rivalry with Syracuse, it may not be possible financially, Tarman said. He said the Nittany Lions are asking opponents to make adjustments in scheduling so Pehn State will be guaranteed at least seven home games per season, Penn State plays its home games, in Beaver Stadium, which seats 88,370,' and grosses approximately $1 million for each game. "I'm not being critical of Penn State. I'd like to play everybody here (at the Carrier Dome) every year, too," Crouthamel said. "I'm not critical of what they're trying to accomplish." However, Crouthamel said Syracuse — which went to the Sugar Bowl last year — would drop the series after 1990 if Penn State officials do not change their demands. A contract between the schools must be signed within the next few weeks, or both universities may have difficulty filling their schedules in the early 1990s, Crouthamel said. Penn State holds a 38-22-5 edge in the series, which began in 1922. The Orangemen won last year's game 48-21 in the Carrier Dome, which seats 50,426. It was Syracuse's first victory over Penn State since 1970. The teams are scheduled to play Oct. 15 in University Park, Pa. ATLANTA (UPI) — NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle says players who use steroids this season will be subject to disciplinary action, a newspaper reported Tuesday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said in a copyright story Rozelle notified players and management in a 15-page letter sent Monday to the 28 Stargell Helping With Abused Children By IAN LOVE UPI Sports Writer . NEW YORK (UPI) — Baseball star Willie Stargell, who delighted youngsters during his 21-year career, Tuesday lent his support to a group that assists abused children. "The reason I am here is that I want to help kids that don't have the opportunity to have a clear mind to make the proper decisions they need in their growing years," he said. "I'm happy to work with this program because there is a need for support to spotlight the problem around the country." The Hall of Fame player attended a news conference to announce the start of a yearlong campaign by the National Committee for Prevention of Child Abuse and the Cigar Association of America. The campaign, "Share Your Joy," will work to educate parents and raise money to combat child abuse. Stargell will serve as honorary chairman. The Cigar Association plans to distribute pamphlets on how to avoid child abuse. Anne Conn, executive director of the NCPCA, said more than 2 million children in the United States last year were reported as victims of child abuse and neglect. She said three children die each day because of maltreatment. Stargell has been involved with charity work and his restaurant business since losing his job earlier this season as third-base coach of the Atlanta Braves. He will be in Gooperstown later this month for his induction into the Hall of Fame. Stargell played his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, leading them to World Series championships in 1971 and 1979. He retired in 1982. He will be the 200th player admitted to the hall and the 17th to reach on the first ballot. Stargell, 47, was nicknamed "Pops" with the Pirates. He has five children of his own. One of his four daughters, Precious, attended the news conference. "When I am home," Stargell said, "not a day goes by that my kids didn't go without a hug or kiss."

Rozelle said anabolic steroids have been added to the list of drugs whose use may result in disciplinary action, including suspension. Other drugs on that list are cocaine, marijuana and amphetamines. "Special mention" of steroids is needed, Rozelle wrote, because of "widespread misuse ... throughput much of the sports world, including football." NFL spokesman Joe Browne said in New York the letter — sent annually to the .players — was basically the same as last year's, the difference being the warning of possible disciplinary action against steroid users. Browne said last season was an "educational year" in that it was the first season the league instituted drug testing. Rozelle cited studies showing steroids, which artificially enhance muscular development, are harmful to a person's longterm physical arid mental health, including causing liver tumors, heart disease, hepatitis, hardening of the arteries, sterility, addicition, baldness, acne and emotional instability. "There is a growing concern that players using steroids can cause serious on-field injuries," he said. "The NFL Physicians Society delcares there are no legitimate medical purposes to prescribe steroids for NFL players." The newspaper said, according to sources, one NFL team had 10 players test positive last year for steroids during the first year of testing for the drug. Rozelle said the 1988 steroid testing policy was as follows: —A player testing positive must be tested again within four weeks. —A second positive test will result in a player undergoing a medical evaluation, which may include detoxification treatment. They would at this point be subject to disciplinary action by Rozelle, though each case will be handled on a case-by-case basis. —The league also may subject a player to "reasonable-cause" testing at any time, if they have tested positive in training camp or a pre-draft physical. —A player may be placed on the inactive non-football illness list if tests reveal complications from the taking of steriods, such as high blood pressure, rapid heart beat, hepatitis, tumors and or chemical abnormalities. "NFL players should be aware that the federal government is concerned about these drugs and that criminal prosecution has resulted from cases of improper distribution of anabolic steroids," Rozelle said. '"Thus, the user, like the user of cocaine or marijuana, is often the final link in a chain of illegal activity." The newspaper also reported Rozelle wanted to mandate a definite suspension for steroid users, but adopted the NFL drug-policy committee's advice to handle positive test results on an individual basis.

CHICAGO (UPI) — Forrrier Cubs slugger Billy Williams says he is flattered to be considered for the permanent Boston Red Sox managerial position. But, he "has not talked to anyone from the club and won't make an effort to get the job until he gets a preliminary phone call. "(Sunday) afternoon I heard about it on the radio and I went put to get a paper to rea'd about it," Williams said about the rumors. "But until Mr. (General Manager Lou) Gorman calls me I'm not going to actively seek the job." Williams is working for the Cubs in the front office this season after a couple seasons as their hitting instructor. Williams also managed an instructional league team for Chicago in the past.. "A lot of people have said I'm too nice to run a ball club," Williams said. "I know there are times when a manager has to pat a player on the back and times when you have to get on them. Players will try to take advantage of you. You can't let them." TOP TEENERS — Bald Eagle took the top spot in the Tri-County Teener Baseball League with an 11-1 record.

Redskins' Schroeder Asks To Be Traded BOSTON (UPI) — Shortstop Ed Romero, who had surgery on his right knee June 9, is expected to be activated from the 21-day disabled list. Randy Kutcher is the . likely candidate to be sent to Pawtucket of the International League. ... Bruce Hurst, who is recovering from a viral infection, will start Sunday. CARLISLE, Pa. (UPI) — Washington Redskins quarterback Jay Schroeder, demoted last season in favor of Doug Williams, has told the Super Bowl champions to trade him rather than relegating him to the bench for the 1988 season. Schroeder, a 1986 Pro Bowl selection and one of only eight quarterbacks to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season, said Tuesday he asked to be traded during a private meeting Monday night with Coach Joe Gibbs. "I wouldn't mind playing here at all. I've had a blast playing here," Schroeder said. "You've got great people around you to play with and you're always gding to play those extra games (playoff games). Who wouldn't have fun playing here? "But, then again, if you're not going to play, it's not the place to be. You'd rather start somewhere else and take your chances on getting to that same thing (the Super Bowl) with somebody else," Schroeder added. Gibbs heard the same thing from Williams at last year's training camp. "If you've got good football players and more than one at one position, somebody's going to be upset," Gibbs said Tuesday night. "If you switch this around, then Doug's going to be upset. I think it's just something you're going to have to deal with." Gibbs said a trade is unlikely. "The bottom line is we don't like doing that (a trade) and we're not going to do it unless we think it's best for the team," the coach said. "But there's always situations where if you're loaded at a position — and at quarterback we do have numbers — then something could happen." Williams, the MVP of Super Bowl XXII, has been named as the team's starter for training camp and likely will remain as the Redskins starter for the regular season opener Sept. 5 against the New York Giants. "I told therh that if it looks like I'm not going to get the opportunity to play here and there's an opportunity somewhere else, I wouldn't mind because I want to play football. And I think everybody in the same situation would want the same thing,". Schroeder'said. Schrdeder said he does not like the odds of the Redskins trading him. "The possibility is not out, but I think it's getting slimmer. I thought that if anything was going to happen, it probably would have happened right before the draft because everyone has leverage with draft picks," Schroeder said. TOKYO (UPI) — Bill Gullickson pitched a four-hitter and and Kiyoshi Nakahata singled home the winning run Tuesday, lifting the Yomiuri Giants to a 1-0 victory over the Hanshin Tigers.
