The Reds said t h e y were presented w i t h a proposal t h a t would in- clude a bonus and a four- year, no-cut contract in a telephone call from Herb Osmond, agent for the former Dodger righthander. Messcrsmifh becanie a free agent on a ruling by an arbitrator last December. "We have admiration for Mcssersmith's pitching ability," said Bob Howsam, elub president. "Andy is a rood athlete and would make a desirable addition to our pitching staff, but we have to operate our team on a sound basis. To sign him Angels open belated spring slate Long and short of it Oscar Gamble has come long way since Afro-wearing days with Cleveland last year and close-cropped look of all New York Yankees this season. Owner George Steinbrenner's hairless edict cost Gamble $30 for shearing. -jpwircphcn 'Discipline important to athlete' Yankee owner decrees hairy rules this season TUCSON-Tte A n g e l s belatedly open their spring training schedule t o d a y a g a i n s t Cleveland w i t h Frank Tanana, Dou Kirkwood and Gary Wheclock doing the pitching. The Indians will counter with Fritz Peterson, Pat Dobson and former DSC star Eric Raich. Nolan Ryan, who threw effortlessly in b a t t i n g practice Sunday, gets the c a l l a g a i n s t O a k l a n d Thursday in Mesa. He hasn't faced enemy hitters since Aug. 24 of last season. After facing Ryan during his 15 minute batting practice s t i n t Tuesday, Bobby Bonds was heard to remark, " I t ' s amazing. The guy is coming off an arm operation and he is seven yards faster than anyone else." The Angels are down to a s i x - d a l e schedule in Palm Springs. They open with Cleveland Friday and Saturday and host San Francisco Sunday, UCLA Monday and San Diego Tuesday and Wednesday. The "Reeses" nipped the "Resingers," 5 - 4 , Tuesday in a Itoltvlllc intra-squad contest highlighted by Bnire Bochtc's solo hoc run in a five-run ninth inning. Bonds drove in a pair of runs for (he losers with a first-inning single and received credit for two additional RBI with a sacrifice fly in the third. tinder Ihese terms is poor 1 HI si ness. "In addition," Howim said, "we cannot allow the acquisition of ono player to undermine the relationship we have wilh our o t h e r players and t h e soundness of our approach to them."

Steinbrenner, p r i n c i p a l owner of the New York Yankees. His suspension f r o m baseball lifted by commissioner Bowie Kuhn, Steinbrenner has become ' highly visible figure in his hall club's spring training camp--both on the field and off. When they arrived in the clubhouse for the first t i m e , Y a n k e e p l a y e r s found a list of regulations posted on the bulletin board. It called for no long hair, no muttonchops, no beards and no high stir- r u p s on uniform socks. The order was signed by Steinbrenner and t h e n endorsed by m a n a g e r Billy Martin. Just to prove that he was entirely behind his boss's war on hair, manager Martin shaved off his own mustache. No player was affected more by the hairy rules t h a n o u t f i e l d e r O s c a r Gamble, acquired over the w i n t e r f r o m Cleveland. Gamble owned the major leagues' most elaborate Afro--but left most of it on the floor of a local barber shop the first night he was in town. The price for the shearing was a cool $30. Other players who have dates w i t h barbers' scissors are pitchers Catfish Hunter and Sparky Lyle a n d catcher T h u r m a n Munson. Last season Munson grew a full beard, but t h a t is not acceptable under Steinbrenner's strict codes. "I'm trying to impose a certain sense of order and discipline in the ball club because I think discipline is important to t h e a t h - lete," explained Steinbrenner. The Y a n k e e s so far have responded to the hair edicts in good nature. Outfielder Lou Piniella. who h a d h i s h a i r c u t l a s t Friday, was ordered back for another trim. "I told George to paint a white line around my head," Piniella said. "I'll go to the barber and tell him to cut to the line." Steinbrenner's a p p e a r - ances in t h e clubhouse have been greeted by calls of "Ten-shun." and "At ease," and one p l a y e r posted a K.P. list for the week in a not-so subtle comment on the military atmosphere.
