TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1968 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Jordan CITIZEN SPORTS WRITER Cabs Juggle Lineup Basketball coach Ed Nymeyer and Flowing Wells High have their second Class A state championship trophy safely secured ui the Caballeros' trophy case, but the easy-going Nymeyer still has an unanswered question. Would the Caballeros have made it with their regular-season starting lineup? Several times during the season, especially after the holidays, it appeared as though the roof had collapsed on Nymeyer's basketball powerhouse. "We'll never know, but I'm still wondering if we could have won it with our regulars," says Nymeyer, referring to the losses of starting guards, Andy Schabinger and Dick Galvez to knee surgery. After the siege of injuries, first to Schabinger and then to Galvez, Nymeyer had to discipline another regular for two weeks by benching him. About five weeks ago, Nymeyer fielded what he thought was his best five, bringing in new guards Dave Linhart and sophomore Monte Davis, moving guard Frank Galvez to forward and retaining his two inside starters, 6-foot-4 Steve Ziegler and 6-5 Bruce Cripe. "It didn't take that five too long to get going," said Nymeyer. "Our guards started scoring to complement our inside boys. We were getting the boards, running out and shooting good." But in i/he 3A-4A interdivisional tournament the weekend before last, Davis got the jitters and began playing like the sophomore that he is. Thus resulted Nymeyer's final lineup change. He moved Galvez back to guard, in place of Davis, and put Rich Hobson under the basket with Ziegler and Cripe. "Rich was doing terribly," confesses Nymeyer. "He'd get in the way on the fast break, cutting in front of Ziegler in the middle (lane)." But Hobson continued to improve. "I saw him coming about the last two weeks of the season and I knew he was ready to play -- but I never figured he'd play that well." Hobson started the 3A-4A championship game, which the Cabs won, 67-56, and also started in all three wins en route to the state championship in Veteran's Memorial Coliseum. He finished as the tournament's No. 1 scorer with 73 points and hauled in 33 rebounds to make the Class A all-tournament team as did Ziegler, who was named the honor team's captain. Figures Not Disappointing The four-day tournament wasn't such a smashing success at the turnstiles or bank, but the sponsoring Arizona Interscholastic Association isn't losing any sleep over it. "Our attendance for the final night was down 2,911 from last year," said executive secretary Hy Hendrickson. "We drew 10,572 last year and 7,661 this year. "I think the figures were outstanding," said Hendrickson. "After all, the first day (Wednesday) was restricted to small schools, none of which were from the immediate area, and I think that Saturday's finals were hurt somewhat because of the late afternoon rains and because there wasn't an area school in the Class A finals. Agua Fria brought in about 2,500 fans in the last two years when they made the finals." (Agua Fria was eliminated in the semifinals this year.) The tournament was up 1,236 in attendance and down $702 in gross receipts over last year's three-day tourney. Here are the statistics since the AIA moved the state tournament into the Coliseum: Year 1966 1967 1968 Days Attendance 2 16,731 3 21,598 4 22,834 Ed-Itorials Gross $ 8,000.00 $25,050.25 §24,347.75 The Tucson Coaches Association will hold its monthly meeting t o m o r r o w n i g h t at Sir George's Smorgasbord at 7:30. . .Sunnyside joins Salpointe as the only Tucson schools sporting baseball dugouts.

Eckert A traveling man By JIM DAWSON Assistant Sports Editor Commissioner William D. Eckert turned up in Tucson yesterday, wearing baseball's rose-colored glasses and acquainting himself with the Cleveland Indians' training facilities. Eckert, a former Air Force general who is touring spring training camps, allowed that: --After baseball's present expansion, which will populate the major leagues with 24 (earns, the next pregnancy could be 8-10 years away. Phoenix could be a top contender for a franchise by that time. --He is looking forward to a n o t h e r great American League pennant race. --Major league baseball may expand into Latin America, Canada, Japan and even Europe "in the long-term future." --He is looking forward ro a n o t h e r great National League pennant race. --He sees no need for a players' union. --Major league baseball attendance and television ratings have reached all-time highs. --There is a strong possibility World Series will begin on Saturdays and some games will be played at night, so that more "working people and school children" can see them. --Baseball brass is concerned about eliminating the yawn, or dull spot, from the game. --Arizona's weather beats Florida's, at least this week. "I'm happy to be here in this warm sunshine, with just a little breeze," said Eckert. "I've been in Florida, where it's cold and windy. I've been to Arizona many times, but this is the first time I've had an opportunity to see the clubs in training here." Eckert is impressed with Arizona as a training area and says that, with expansion, "(here may well be more clubs here in the future." He didn't say which Arizona cities are in line for spring bases, although Tempe, Yuma and Mesa have been mentioned most prominently. Eckert said he hasn't seen a feasibility study on Phoenix tis a major league baseball city, but reminded Arizona writers that "other larger cities are interested. With the growth pattern in the Southwest, though, Phoenix might be a contender for a franchise in the future." The commissioner inspected the Indians' Hi Corbett and Emil Bossard complex and c a l l e d it "exceplk.. ally good." Eckert said he doesn't see the need for a union, "and I don't think the players do. We're very pleased with the agreement the owners and players made recently. You read about strikes in other areas every day. . .I've just come from a garbage strike in New York and a teachers' strike in Florida. I'm glad we can settle our differences in baseball and have good player-owner rapport." TRIBE TOPICS - Manager Alvin Dark increased the workout tempo for the Indians yesterday, sending the ciub through a one-hour blackboard session in the clubhouse and four hours of hitting, pitching and working on out- f i e l d relays and cutoffs. . .Outfielder Vic Dava- 1 i 11 o reported yesterday, bringing the roster to full strength. Davalillo said he was detained because of visa problems. . .Pitcher Sam McDowell, who received minor injuries in an auto accident Sunday, was excused from yesterday's workouts and may remain on the sidelines until tomorrow... ; A.J.B.C.
