Northwest Iowa Tennis League begins Sunday CHEROKEE, Iowa - The Northwest Iowa Amateur Tennis League opens its season Sunday with three team matches, all starting at 1 p. m. Cherokee will host Humboldt, a new entry in the league replacing Storm Lake; Sheldon will be at Estherville arid Spencer at Algona. The league will close Aug. 12 with a league tournament at Estherville. DETROIT (AP) -University of Michigan Ail-American Rick Leach ignored the lure of big-money professional football and instead chose Thursday to play baseball with the Detroit Tigers. "I wasn't exactly sure going into the season what would happen," Leach said at a news conference at Tiger Stadium, Just minutes after signing. The Woverines' football quarterback and baseball outfielder had been sought after In both sports. He was drafted originally by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1975 and 1978, but chose to play football instead. The Denver Broncos chose the Flint, Mich, native In the fifth round of the National Football League player draft last month. Leach also had been offered a contract with Montreal In the Canadian Football League. "I've been following the Tigers since I was a young boy. Playing In my home state where my family and friends could see me was a big concern," Leach said, in explaining why he chose the Tigers. ' . Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Leach was signed to a one-year minor league contract with six renewal years, club vice presi-" dent William Lajole 'explained. At the end of the year, the Tigers will decide whether to renew the pact, Lajole said. Leach will leave" for Lakeland, Fla. Monday to begin -a 10-day training camp , Elk Point finally has . women's ace ELK POINT, S. D. - It took 13 long years but the Elk Point Country $ Club finally had a hole- in-one shot by a woman. :$ Paula Mclnerney of Sioux City did the trick g: Thursday on the 148- $ yard, par 3 third hole. :: She used a driver. :j: Witnesses to the first ever ace by a woman at lithe course were her ij: husband Jeff and Kate :: Slattery. j$ with other draftees, Lajole added. After camp, he said, the 22-year-old would be assigned to one of the teams within the club's farm system. In his 149 college baseball games, Leach set Michigan career records collecting 168 hits, 25 doubles, scoring 107 runs and batting in 88. But, despite the records, Leach was surprised to be picked in the first round of the major league draft. "For a guy who can't hit with power and throw too well," he laughed, "I guess I didn't do too bad." Questions kept returning to what prompted Leach to forsake a lucrative football career in favor of baseball. He and his parents refused to talk about terms, except in generalities. "Money was a big factor, but that wasn't the main thing," his father, Dick Leach explained. "If this was Rick's only concern, he probably wouldn't be here, because both Montreal and Denver would have meant a lot more (money)," his father said. His son described the signing Thursday as "like a - dream." "I'm happy to be here," he said. "I just want to play baseball for the Tigers and do a good job." But, If things don't go well, what happens at the end of the year when his contract is up? Would football be a possibility? "No, I've decided I'm going into baseball as a profession, and that's where I'm going to stay," he said. "I won't look back." 940 picked during draft NEW YORK (AP) - Major League baseball completed its summer amateur free agent draft Thursday with a total of 940 players chosen, the highest number of selections since 942 were picked in 1971.

Contract terms were not released but it was termed a mlltl-yearpact. "Though many names have been mentioned for this position, Al MacNeil is the only man I had in mind," Atlanta General Manager Cliff Fletcher said In prepared remarks. Other names mentioned included Bobby Pulford, coach of the Chicago Black Hawks; Don Cherry, recently hired as coach at Colorado; Scotty Bowman, coach of the Cana-diens, and Roger Nellson, coach at Toronto. MacNeil, 43, resigned earlier In the day .as ' Montreal's director of player personnel. - "I have known and worked with Al MacNeil for many years and have never met a man that has a more thorough grasp of the game," Fletcher said. "He has been a successful coach at every level of professional hockey and his association with Montreal enables him to bring to Atlanta a rich tradition of winning." MacNeil, who was on hand at the news conference, said, "I am delighted to have the opportunity to rejoin Cliff Fletcher and to coach a hockey team that's as strong as the Atlanta Flames. "This club Is one of the finest combinations of size, speed and talent that the NHL has to offer and with just a little more direction can be In a position to challenge for all the marbles," MacNeil said in prepared remarks. MacNeil becomes the third Atlanta coach In their seven-year history. He succeeds Fred Crelghton, who was fired recently after the Flames failed for the fourth consecu tive season to advance past the preliminary round of the NHL playoffs. Crelghton had coached the Flames for 4'4 years after succeeding Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, Atlanta's coach when the expansion club entered the league In 1972 MacNeil and Fletcher have been close friends from the days when they worked in the Canadiens' front office. Fletcher, whose Flames had four consecutive winning seasons under Crelghton, decided a coaching change was necessary after Atlanta was eliminated from the playoffs In two games by the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Flames have made the playoffs In five of their seven seasons but flopped each year In postseason play, recording only one victory in 13 games.
