Royals offer three lifetime' contracts The Salina Journal Wednesday, April 3,1985 Page 23 NEW YORK (AP)-The Kansas City Royals will announce the signing of "lifetime" contracts that could total $250 million with as many as three key players next Tuesday, on advertising agency representing Royals co-owner Avron Fogelman said. The players reportedly are Dan Quisenberry, Willie Wilson and Frank White. Jeff toenrmn, a spokesman for the agency G.S. Schwartz in New York, said the deals would be similar to the one signed last year by third baseman George Brett and would include association with Fogelman's real estate business. Herman said it was possible only two signings would be announced Tuesday Dean Vogelaar, the Royals director of public relations, said none of the agreements were "finalized yet. Talks are not complete and don't Quisenberry White Wilson necessarily involve all three players." He said no news conference had yet been called. Published reports last month said relief pitcher Quisenberry, outfielder Wilson and infielder White all were getting close to agreement on new contracts. White apparently is the farthest away from signing. Last year, the Royals signed Brett to an eight-year, $14.24 million contract with options through 1993 and various incentives, including a $5 million loan. Agents Jim Bronner, who represents Quisenberry, and Steve Fehr, representing White, confirmed they were talking contract with the Royals. Wilson's agent, Jack Sands, was away from his Boston office Cox heads list of KW recruits Bill Cox, who signed a national football letter-of-intent with Kansas State two years ago, is one of 12 Kansans who recently signed with Kansas Wesleyan. Cox, who graduated from Salina Central in 1983, failed to complete two-a-i day drills dur-l ing his fresh-1 man season atj K-State. But' first-year KW Cox coach Jack Welch is excited about the potential of the 6-8, 295- pound lineman. "Getting a person like Bill adds immediate help to our offensive line," Welch said. "With his size, we'll be able to dominate the offensive tackle area." Cox will be immediately eligible when he enrolls at Wesleyan in the fall. And Welch said that despite sitting out the past two years, Cox is in shape and ready to play. "He's getting an opportunity to prove things to some people in Salina," Welch said. "He's wanting to get a good education in an atmosphere where he can excel. Kansas Wesleyan gives him that opportunity." Welch also expects an early contribution from Jeff Merrill, a 6-3, 235-pound linebacker from Dodge City Community College. Merrill played his prep ball at Bennington. The other signees include five players who earned All-Area honors from The Journal this past fall. Abilene's Bernie Anderson, a quarterback-safety, and Smith Center's Scott Montgomery, a fullback-nose guard, head the list. Anderson earned first-team Class 4-5A honors, while Montgomery was a first-team Class 3A selection. Also signing with the Coyotes are Logan's Steve Baugess and Shannon Schurz, who were honorable mention Eight-Man I picks, and Todd Steinle of Wilson, who was an honorable mention Eight- Man II selection. Wakefield's Jerry Ackerman, who earned all-state honors, also announced his intention to attend Wesleyan.

Sacred Heart golfers win at Ellsworth ELLSWORTH — Mike Meares paced Sacred Heart's golf team to a first-place finish in the Ellsworth Invitational Tuesday. Meares fired an 80 on the Ellsworth Country Club course to lead the Knights to a two-shot win over Claflin in the two-man competition and a 30-shot victory over Ellinwood in the six-man event. Ellinwood edged Sacred Heart by two shots in the four-man competition. Ellinwood's Blake Wells captured medalist honors with a 76. He was followed by Brent Buehler of Claflin with a 79 and Meares' 80. Sacred Heart's next meet will be April 12 when the Knights participate in the Belleville Invitational.

The Kansas City Star has reported that the deals with Quisenberry and Wilson would be for about $40 million each over a 40-year period. Fehr, speaking from his Kansas City office, confirmed that the "package involves the possibility of investments in real estate projects with Mr. Fogelman, and that's where you get the larger figures." "I gather that of the three, we're probably the farthest from having finalized documents," Fehr said of White's chances of signing a new contract. At 34 years old, White is the oldest of the three players, and his contract may be for a shorter duration. White is in the eighth year of a nine-year contract. Quisenberry is 32, is entering the third year of a four-year, $3.2 million contract, while Wilson, whose four-year deal expires after this season, is 29. Garner, Hamilton share Marymount MVP honors Harold (J.R.) Garner and Rich Hamilton were named co-Most Valuable Players for Marymount's 1984-85 basketball team during Tuesday night's postseason banquet at the Western Sizzlin Steak House. Ironically, neither Garner nor Hamilton started for the Spartans during the final half of the season. But Garner finished as Marymount's leading scorer with a 14.1 per game average, while Hamilton was the Spartans' leading reboun- der with a 7.0 average. Garner, a 6-2 senior guard from Fayetteville, N.C., was a first-team NAIA District 10 selection this past season. He scored Marymount's biggest bucket of the '84-85 campaign on Dec. 3 when he banked in a short jumper at the buzzer to lift the Spartans to a 67-66 victory over national champion Fort Hays State. Hamilton blossomed down the stretch and was perhaps the biggest reason Marymount was able to post a 21-11 record — the Spartans' 15th consecutive 20-win season. The 6-8 freshman from Philadelphia, Pa., scored 11 points per outing on 61 percent shooting from the field. Two other Spartans — seniors Curtis Smith and Gary Howard — also were honored at Tuesday night's banquet. Smith, a 6-1 forward from Newburgh, N.Y., was named Best Defensive Player. Howard, a 5-10 guard from Dighton, was selected as the Most Inspirational Player. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tony Perez, a 21-year veteran of the major leagues who played on Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" teams of the mid-1970s, was signed to a one-year contract Tuesday by the Cincinnati Reds. Perez, who turns 43 on May 14, has been in training camp with the Reds this spring as a nonroster player, but his signing was considered all but a sure thing. He rejoined the Reds in 1984 after leaving Cincinnati in 1977 to spend seven seasons with Montreal, Boston and Philadelphia. Reds Player-manager Pete Rose, who played with Perez on the "Big Red Machine" ballclubs, had said this spring that his only concern was to see that Perez could still hit. Perez likely will see most action in a pinch-hitting role — the same as last season — although he is available for duty at first base behind Rose.
