// Saints Ever Get to Show Stuff it Will Be Good Spring JIM McGLOTHLIN 'Lost Heart' GEORGE BRliNET Needs Work Angel Hurlers Unhappy With Called Strike By KEN P1VERNETZ Staff Writer It promises to be a good spring lor St. Anthony High's baseball and track squads if the Saint.- ever get a chance 10 show their stuff. Both squads have been burl by the lain of gimd practice days, as have all schools. Marty Johnson's baseball team was scheduled to open Monday at Blair Field against Poly and then play at Millikan today. "1 can count the number of «o»d practice days we've had on one hand," says Johnson. "We're usually a late-starting club, and it looks like it will be that way again this season." The Saints, who tied for the Catholic League l i t l e last year and carried eventual winner Savanna 1 1 innings before losing a second-round playoff game, need pitching help in '69, according to Johnson. "It's our big question mark right now. Plus we're in only one of two leagues that plays a two-round schedule." Three-fourths of the infield will be lettermen. Ken Yi'koyap.ia ( l i l . Ari Tavizon ts) and Marc Landry (31)) lettered in 'OS as did Mike Sdiaeper who has been moved 10 ihe outfield. Top pin-hills; prospects are Mike Crevda. John I'ntlorwoud. Boh Comer and lernll Cokcr. r.M-u'ar track cu.uh Bob Ar'iui; also displays cautious optimism. The Saints haven't won a dual meet track title in 12 years, but who knows in I960. "We do have good men for the lirst lime in more than just a couple of events. 1 like to think it's a pretty good team." !wo carryovers in mi the loss count i v loam, Joe Henderson and Chris Jones. hould rank with the league's top nulers and 2-mileis. George Chambon has hi'peluliy recovered from a bone break thai hampered his ai tivities last year. Two \ears ago he won the Catholic -i-lt) title. Stron;: field e\ent has to be the pole vault with Kent Kckholdt who has alieady cle.ncd 13-0 in practice. Rick Carlson and Mike Deimuluk both hope to clear 12-0.

It's ironic, perhaps, but the two are here, defying the strike, for completely different reasons. The Angels, naturally, don't care why, only that they're here. B r u n e t 's explanation isn't at all surprising, especially for a veteran who's pushing 34. "I can't afford to miss any training," says the Frenchman. "1 g o t t a get into shape now. The Angels have treated me great and I sure don't want to get them sore at me." To show how eager he is. Brunei was the first hurler to work at Monday's opening workout under sunny skies. McGlothlin's reasoning is altogether different. Mac says, simply, his heart isn't in the strike anymore, indicating possibly a crack in the players' stand. "1 think a lot of players are confused on this thing," the redhead said. "When we firsi started l a l k i n g strike we were aft e r a certain percentage (or the pension fund, not a set amount. Now all the talk is about a set a m o u n t . "I didn't make up my mind about reporting 10 . spring training until just a couple of days ago. At first I went along with the I h i n g (the strike) but just ... this last week changed my ., mind."

Rae scored 217 points in 10 league games for a 21.7 average. Only Holy, Lakewood and St. Anthony players will have a chance to improve season averages. All three clubs enter GIF playoff competition Friday night. two seasons for the An- , gels, also figured any de- ; lay in training would only he detrimental in the long run. "I'm not an established player, you know. Well, I haven't been established that long, anyway," he points out. "I have to start working now. If I miss three weeks, say, and don't slurt working out u n t i l March, well, there's no way 1 can open the .season. "Some guys who are making the big money can afford to stay away. They know they have a job. Not me. 1 figure I've got a job but there are an awful lot of .guys out there who are after "my job," he added, gesturing toward the Angels' four-diamond complex, which, for the moment at least, is loaded primarily with rookies and non-roster players. Brunei figures most of the players want to report to training b u t . as he says, "some are victims of circumstances, maybe, and some aren't. 1 just can't imagine anyone not wanting to be here." Then Brunei, mopping his brow after his 10-niin- ute workout on the mound, smiled and said, "You know, it's kinda f u n - ny not seeing the old pros out here." Bill Rigney, the manager, offered his opinion on Ihe first day of training. "We're going aboul this just like we always have." he said. "We're gelling ready for our first game of the spring and that's March 7 at Yuma against the Padres."
