Pnge MA NEWS-HERALD, Panama City, Florida, Wednesday, March 7, J9'.- Kekich. Is Target Of All Eyes FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. (UPI) — Mike Kekich, resolutely refusing to comment on his domestic exchange with fellow Yankee pitcher Fritz Peterson, worked out methodically with his teammates Tuesday—running, throwing and shagging flies. But he was the target of all eyes, and his fellow Yankees offered varying opinions about him and the marital mess. Peterson, happily living with Kekich's wife, was not on the scene, his agent and Yankee general manager Lee MacPhail still having failed to reach agreement on his contract. The status of divorce proceedings as still not clear. Peterson and Kekich's wifo, Susan, spent the day at the beach in Fort Lauderdale after jjThey Ve Together Doing What Comes Naturally!

"I have nothing to hide," Peterson said.."We didn't kill anybody and nobody's got a deathly sickness. We're just living a little better than before. "It's not a smutty thing. If they were as happy as we are, it would be a laughing matter. We were even thinking about a double wedding. We had a wonderful relationship. "If I thought I was wrong, 1 would go back, but I don't. There were a lot of tears shed over this but we made a final agreement and I just can't go back. We don't want this to sound cheap. Our friends will still be our friends after it's over and the ones who aren't weren't worth ha v i n g as friends. Mrs. Marilym Peterson has left Kekich and has returned to her parents home in Rockford, HI., where her mother, Mrs. Arthur Monks, said: "As far as my daughter is concerned there is no swap. She has applied for a divorce but does not plan to live with Mike Kekich. Marilyn does not want a divorce and her home broken up. She is getting one only because Fritz wants one." Of her son-in-law, Mrs. Monks would only say Fritz "is not the same person he used to be. We can't understand any of his' ideas or his problems anymore." The consensus among the Yankee players was that, in the words of one of them, "it's their own damn business and as jlong as it doesn't affect their jpiching, it's strictly their baby." One Yankee, however, was obviously deeply distressed. Lindy McDaniel, a minister of the Church of Christ, observed solomnly. "It's not very good, is it? My position is pretty clear. It doesn't change for any particular situation. A Christian or a ball player always find differences in morality and that's nothing new. It's hard to separate private life from baseball life. There's always an over-lapping, to what degree only a Solomon would know." McDaniel, a relief hurler, puts out a monthly paper called "Pitch/ng for the Lord." But if McDaniel was upset for moral or religious reasons, tha majority of his teammates think they can look at the situation as a strictly private relationship between Kekich and Peterson. Thurman Munson, the catcher who handles both men when they are on the mound, said: "Everybory knows we're a bunch of crazy guys, everyman to his own. It won't bother the club on the field and it doesn't change my feelings for either one of them. But Fritz should be out here now working out. We need him." Bobby Murcer, whose on day of glory for signing a $100,000 contract Monday was overshadowed by the wife trade, admitted the news startled him. "At first I thought it was another one of their gags," Murcer admitted, "but I don't think it will affect the club -if they do their job."

Morgan Eyes Better Season STARTS TONIGHT A new cult from the Caribbean.They bring back the dead in a way too (frightening to believe. TAMPA, Fla. (UPI) Second baseman Joe Morgan and first baseman Tony Perez participated in their first workout of the Cincinnati Reds' spring training season Tuesday. Morgan, who signed a week ago, was delayed by exams at California State College, where he is majoring in physical education. i The Reds' second baseman, who signed for a reported $95,000, said he hopes to top last year, the best of his major league career. Morgan, with a .292 batting average, 16 homers and 115 walks, finished fourth among players in the National T..- n S ; balloting for the most valuable player award. CLEARWATER, Fla. (UPI) — Virtually everyone who has visited the Phillies during spring training feels they improved themselves via key winter trades, but nevertheless Philadelphia will be fortunate to finish fifth this year. New manager Danny Ozark is running a tight ship, counting on stern discipline plus the presence of veterans like Jim Lonborg and Cesar Tovar; to give the younger players a lift." Steve Carlton was the best pitcher in . baseball last season but it is unrealistic to expect that he can carry the team himself. The fact that the Phillies finished last in the NL Eas>t despite Carlton's great 1972 season speaks for itself. Strengths: Carlton, whose 27 victories represented 45.8 per cent of the Phillies' wins in 1972, should get help from Lonborg, 14-12 with a 2.83 earned run average for Milwaukee last season. Ozark believes infield defense will be much improved. Addition of Tovar from Minnesota should be a big help on offense and defense. Phillies probably will be a closer-knit team this year. Weaknesses: Heavy offensive load must be carried by Greg entftcaiies RESTAURANT & LOUNGE 4500 WESTHIGHWAY 98 MRS. GEORGEADES INVITES YOU BACK with the same gracious dining Prime Rib-Au Jus Steaks - Continental Cuisine Seafood CLOSED SUNDAY Luzinski, Willie Montanez and Deron Johnson. Club needs another catcher and pitching is shallow behind Carlton and Lonborg. Phillies look like a mini - team without enough strength in any department to stay in any kind of contentions. New faces: Winter trades brought Lonborg, Ken Brett, Earl Stephenson, Tovar, Jose Pagan and Del Unser. Ozark thinks Mike Anderson can stick as outfielder and that Mike Schmidt could win regular job at third. Dave Downs, 15-7 at Reading in 1972, could help pitching staff. Comment: New pros acquired in winter trades should make the Phillies much more respec­ table. Ozark concedes that the Phillies "were a fundamentally poor team in 1972." He is more or less starting from scratch, attempting to instill a new spirit, and that's always a bad place irom which to start. Other teams in the four-division expansion era have made unexpected moves into contention but it would take an optimist to bet the rent money that the Phillies are going to make one this year.
