By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer The verdict on Sam McDowell may not be final for a couple of months yet, but the Chicago Cubs think they see the jury coming in. McDowell, of course, is the fireballing Cleveland left-hander who was supposed to make everybody forget about Sandy Koufax. He ran into arm trouble last year and had a mediocre season. But Sunday, with the opening of the major-league baseball season just a little more than two weeks away, McDowell went six innings against the Cubs at Scottsdale, Ariz, and gave up not so much as a single " it. . .

For Gino, a native Italian, that discovery was almost as important as the one another son of Italy made in 1942. Because Gino is an all- American soccer player in a country where playing soccer is practically un- American. All that will change, he hopes, this summer when the National Professional and North American soccer leagues, backed by an estimated $20 million, expose traditionally baseball-minded American to what most of the world considers to be the No. 1 sport. * * * "Kids like Ventriglia/' observes one North American league official, "are in the right place at exactly the right time. Up until this year, being an outstanding college soccer player in this country provided about as much market value as a used Edsel."

"Right now," says Ventriglia, "my sights are set on the Pan-American and Olympic games (he's been selected to play in both)." * * * However, Al Miller, Ventriglia's coach at New Paltz, sees nothing but 'gold in them thar goals" for gregarious Gino. "He'll turn pro after the Olympics," says Miller, "and he'll have a lot of incentive during the next year. The way I see it, the better he does in the Olympics, the more of a bonus he'll be able to command. Arid he's the kind of guy who starts out tough and gets tougher as the competition gets tougher." Gino came to this country as a youngster and didn't play soccer in high school because he went to a school that didn't bother with the sport. * * * "He had some idea about going into service," recalls Miller, "and I figured he was lost: I saw Gino playing with amateur teams in the area and I knew he was terrific but he didn't show any interest in college. Then Don Smith, one of his high school coaches, got talking to him and the next thing I knew, there he was. "Now he's up for a Rhodes scholarship, which isn't bad for a kid who didn't want to go to college in the first place." Ventriglia scored five goals in his first college game. "He only played about half the game," Miller remembers, "and right away I knew we were in for four good years." * * * With the formation of two pro soccer leagues in this country, Ventriglia, now a naturalized citizen, could become the nol-so- poor-man's Joe Namalli "It is," sums up coach Miller, "a very good time to be an all-American."
