Poge 24 —Wednesday, June 1, 1988 / Phillies interested in finding a position for Bowa PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Larry Bowa is wary of major-league managing after his stint with the San Diego Padres, but he's, examining other possibilities with the Philadelphia Phillies. "I don't know if 5'd ever get another chance to manage," said Bowa, a former Phillies shortstop fired Saturday after little more than a year with San Diego. "But if the opportunity was ever there, I'd really have to give it a lot of thought. "I know I wouldn't consider managing again unless I had assurances that I'd have some input in personnel decisions and after 1 had taken a long look at the organization involved." Bowa, succeeded as Padres manager by'Jack MeKeon, the club's vice president of baseball operations, said after his. firing that he had not been given enough time to rebuild the club. Under Bowa, who took over at the start of the 1987 season, San Diego was 81-127, including 16-30 this season. The day after his firing, Bowa met with Phillies president Bill Giles about job possibilities. Neither man would disclose what specific options were discussed. '.'He'd like to be back with us in some capacity and I'd like to have him back," Giles said. "I think he adds something. "I talked to him and gave him some options. He's going to think it over." Bowa compiled a .260 batting average in 16 seasons in the major leagues, including. 12 with Philadelphia. As a Phillie, Bowa was chosen for five All-Star games, three as R starter, and led National League shorlstops in fielding percentage five times, winning Gold Gloves in 1972 and 1978. Bowa also played for the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets before managing Las Vegas to the Pacific Coast League title in 1986, his only managerial experience prior to the Padres job. Bowa said Giles gave him "three or four really interesting options to consider;' and we agreed we'd talk in about a month from now." "Let me say right off, though, that one job! don't want and one job not discussed was managing the Phillies. The Phils already have an excellent manager in Lee Elia. "But the things Bill talked about are things that could be very interesting. Th«y would be possibilities to which 1 could make a commitment. I gave a lot of myself to the Phillies' organization and it gave a lot to me. And if it worked out that I cjuld make a contribution to the Phillies, that would be great. "I'm going to sit back and think things through over the next few days. I'm going to cook" out in the back yard, watch a lot of baseball games and root for the Phillies." " FSU wins title .MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Fernando Arguelles wanted his Florida Southern teammates to know what it felt like to win a national championship. 'Arguelles, the only starter left from the Mbccasins' 1985 NCAA Division II championship team, knocked in the winning run in the bottom of the 12lh inning Tuesday night as Florida Southern claimed another title with a 5-4 victory over California State-Sacramento. ^"1 wanted this one not just for myself," the senior catcher said. "I wanted it more for the guys who have never been here." Until Tuesday night, the season had not been a successful one for Arguelles. After hitting over .300 his first three years, his average had dipped to .281 heading into the championship game. "After the year 1 had, I knew the Lord was with me tonight," Arguelles said. "I felt I was due." "What can you sayV There was a guy who had struggled all year long and he came up with the big hit," said Florida Southern coach Chuck Anderson. The Moccasins, 48-10, swept through the six-team, double-elimination tournament with four straight victories, including two over Sacramento. Florida Southern has now won seven Division II baseball titles — four more than any other school. Bob LeFebre led off the 12th with a walk against Steve Schweizer, 0-4, and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Mark Chasey. Arguelles then drilled an 0-1 pitch in front of right fielder Quinn Gregory, whose throw to the plate was too late to nip LeFebre as he slid across head first. "I had gone to a lighter bat," Arguelles said. "Their pitcher was throwing the hell oQt of the ball. I just got the barrel out." ••Arguelles was almost a hero in the ninth inning. He hammered a pitch deep to center field, but Mike Ripplinger had JUSt enough room to make the catch. -"After I hit it to the wall, I had to hit something," he said. "We'd come too far." I'Sacramento, 43-21, handed Florida Southern three runs — two on wild pitches and another on an error — and cost itself a run with a bizarre play in the third inning. ^Ripplinger homered off the Scoreboard aBove the left-field wall with two men on, but was called out for passing a baserunner who had held up when the ball bounced back on the playing field. '"You can't make any mistakes against A, team as good as Florida Southern," Sacramento coach John Smith said. "It wfas a great, great game, but nobody remembers who comes in second." l!John Hudek, 12-2, picked up his second win of the tournament. He was perfect in I'A innings of relief. Jasper gets : special award ;MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. — Former Blairsville resident Ray Jasper, son of Emma Jasper of 154 South Brady St., Blairsville, and the late "Babe" Jasper, became the first inductee into the Grcentree Recreation Association's (Mount Laurel) newly-formed Hall of Fame RiayG. ^Jasper was cited for his more than 29 years of work as a volunteer \yrestling coach for the GRA. -The 47-year-old father of five daughters has coached football, soccer and Softball in addition to wrestling. ;A. 1959 graduate of Blairsville High School where he participated in football and wrestled in the 185 pSund class, Jasper left the Blairsville area in 1963. He is employed as a- truck driver and route salesman for a Philadelphia textile firm. ^Jasper's induction took place at the Mount Laurel Hilton, an event aitended by 350 persons marking the 30th anniversary of the Greentree Recreation Association. Mike Frame came out of the bullpen in the second inning for Sacramento and was brilliant, allowing only four hits and a run in nine innings of work. He had pitched only 45¥j innings entering the night, Frame was matched pitch for pitch by Moccasin reliever Tom Drell, who entered the game in the fourth and gave up just three hits and a run in 6'A innings. He struck out six and didn't walk a batter. Florida Southern scored two runs in the first against Sacramento ace Erik Bennett, who was yanked in the second when the first two batters reached base. Bennett had hurled a 3-0 shutout against Jacksonville vState in his first tournament start but wasn't effective on three days' rest. Florida Southern centerfielder Chris Leach, who was 2-for-5 Tuesday and 11- for-16 in the tournament, was named the Most Valuable Player. He was joined on the all-tournament team by teammates LeFebre, third baseman Cris Allen, second baseman Billy Miller and pitcher James Hurst. Sacramento got four players on the team: Bennett, first baseman Mike Brackins, right- c fielder Mark Gieseke and catcher Tim Taber. The other two players selected in voting by the media were shortstop Tyler Smith and designated hitter Scott Pickands, both of third-place Lewis University. . Goukas returns ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The NBA expansion franchise Orlando Magic today planned to introduce as its new coach for- mer Philadelphia 76ers coach Matt Goukas, The Orlando Sentinel reported. Magic officials scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. and did not disclose the topic, but sources told The Orlando Sentinel the gathering would be for Guokas. The Magic begin play as an NBA expansion team in 1989-90. Guokas coached the 76ers for 2'/i years before being fired in February by owner Harold Katz. He had a 119-88 record, 2ft-23 this year. Goukas reportedly was paid about $250,000 per year and has 13 months left on his Sixers contract. Sources told The Sentinel that the Magic will not begin paying Guokas until he officially begins his duties as coach in June 1989. In the interim, Guokas apparently will informally scout prospective players and perform public relations duties. Rod Thorn, NBA vice president of operations, said a controversy could develop if Guokas performs in an official capacity for the Magic while being paid entirely by the Sixers. "I would think the commissioner's office would look askance at that," Thorn said. Magic officials would not comment on details of Guokas' contract. Katz could not be reached. Guokas, 44, is regarded around the NBA as a bright coach who pays great attention to detail. A journeyman player, he played 10 years in the NBA, including 4Vz with the Sixers. He had a career scoring average of 5.8 points per game. Guokas ended his playing career in 1976 with the Kansas City Kings, who since have moved to Sacramento. He turned to broadcasting and joined the Sixers' announcing crew in 1977. In December 1981 he replaced Chuck Daly as an assistant to Sixers Coach Billy Cunningham. Daly resigned to become coach of the Detroit Pistons. Guokas became the Sixers' head coach on June 14,1985. He was hired by Pat Williams, then the Sixers' general manager and now the Magic's general manager. c YATESBORO — The Shannock Valley Sportsmen's Club will hold trap practice each Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
