Earl Weaver saying he was more concerned with his players' safety than a possible forfeit in the midst of a hot three-team pennant race pulled his team off the field in the fifth inning Thursday night at Toronto and forfeited the game Baltimore was losing 4-0 The game was played in a steady drizzle since the third inning and Weaver complained to the umpires that the tarp protecting the mound in the Toronto bullpen down the left-field foul line was being held in place by bricks Ile insisted the tarp be removed and when umpire Marty Springstead refused Weaver pulled his team off Weaver met with his players in the clubhouse and said they unanimously agreed not to continue unless the tarp was removed "The players agreed to suffer the consequences" said Weaver whose Orioles stayed 214 games behind New York in the American League East but dropped into a second-place tie with Boston Boston won at New York 7-3 "I might have saved someone's career" Weaver said "There's only four feet of space between the foul line and the mound I had a guy slip out there last night and wasn't about to let it happen again" When told Weaver felt the tarp posed a threat Toronto Manager Roy Ilartsfield said: "People have stumbled over second base and it's been there for over 100 years" The last forfeit in the major leagues was in 1975 at Cleveland when Texas was awarded a game after fans stormed the field during "Beer Night" All forfeits are recorded 9-0 in the record books Weaver said he hoped that when league President Lee McPhail reviews the situation "he'll see our point of view I'm going to put it in Lee's lap" Springstead tho chief of the umpiring crew said he was in no position to demand the removal of the tarp "I told the ground crew to remove the bricks but then he (Weaver) came back out and said he refused to play unless the tarp was removed It's the same in Cleveland Detroit and Chicago When it's raining they put the tarps down" Weaver said he told Springstead to remove the tarp or mark it and make it out of play "That's what they do in Cleveland Marty had enough sense to remove the bricks I don't know why he wasn't sensible enough to get the tarp off" The mound in Baltimore's bullpen remained uncovered throughout The Orioles were warming up two pitchers at the time of the forfeit Weaver felt the bullpen mounds should have been sanded as was done to the main mound Kingman Southern Directors Vote In 2 Teams cago White Sox) and Chattanooga (Cleveland Indians changed this month from the Oakland As) Columbus (Houston Astros) was moved from the West to the East Division in an alignment with Charlotte Savannah (Atlanta Braves) Jacksonville (Kansas City Royals) and Orlando (Minn(sota Twins) The league vill continue to play a 140-game season but instead of playing each of the other tea 111S the same number of times as in the immediate past each club will play teatns in its own division 20 times and those in the other division 12 times Hitchcock said the expansion is contingent on the approval of the National Association of Professional baseball Leagues (minor league head(tuarters) but that Association President liobhy Braga') has indicated such approval Is a mere formality final four games one an emotional 13-6 defeat by Notre Dame In that contest an interception of Bass' curl-pass ended South Carolina's last-gasp drive — and triggered that season's end slump So far this year the team is unbeaten A 32-17 victory over Appalachian State and a 17-0 win against Georgia Tech are the successes creditable if not spectacular And assistant coach Dick Rader who directs the squad's offensive backfield is positive Bass will avoid the occasional errors that blemished his previous work "That was a tough year for him" comments Rader "because he was replacing Jeff Grantz the best quarterback we've ever had here I think he feels more confident now that he's established himself We've gone to the drop-back pass rather than the sprint-out we used and he's more comfortable doing that He understands better what we're trying to accomplish" Those offensive plans spring from head coach Jim Car len prosperous at West Virginia and Texas Tech before his 1975 Columbia debut He inherited Bass who was signed during Paul Dietzel's Gamecock tenure And as South Carolina enters the season's middle phase with a game Saturday against Miami Ohio Bass's objective is simple "I just want" he says "to stay healthy" And sprawled face-down on the trainer's table he adjusts the plastic ice-bags that soothe his backache an injury aggravated by a Georgia Tech tackle He moans His law is sore too He is 22 years old the son of a retired Air Force colonel a youth whose blond hair and thick eyebrows frame his sharply-chiseled face He played for a Virginia AAA championship team at Alexandria's T C Williams High School then chose South Carolina's recruiting pitch over Minnesota's He is an advertising student a water-skier a horseman His speciality is the medium-range pass especially to flanker Zion McKinney and split end Philip Logan He moans again "I didn't really want to be a quarterback" he explains "but my high school coach switched me there from the secondary" He shrugs Quarterback injuries are commonplace Defensive back injuries are rare And nearby hangs a characteristic locker-room placard: "Pain Is A State Of Mind" Ordinarily Ron Bass would laugh at that musing over the varous ironies but today his jaw was sore And he was hurting Yanks Get Kingman First base umpire Jim Evans said Weaver was informed he could protest the game and allow it to continue Weaver declined When asked why he said "Because I value the Curtis Thompson We Were Wrong In Thursday's Prep Corner the picture of Curtis Thompson of West Mecklenburg was incorrect This is his picture I Associated Press NEWPORT RI — Courageous skipper Ted Turner who had a lead of more than 10 minutes at one point saw sure victory over Australia in their second America's Cup race slip from his grasp Thursday as winds died down and neither boat could complete the course in the 512- hour time limit The race was declared no contest "If you've ever seen I I men cry" Turner said it was when they fired the gun on the committee boat and we knew time would run out" Winds began from the northnortheast at 10-15 knots in the morning but dropped to three knots or less as they shifted to the south in the afternoon Turner had a lead of 10 minutes 45 seconds at the fourth mark and 5:37 at the fifth mark but he Associated Press NEW YORK — The New York Yankees acquired slugger Dave Kingman on waivers from California Thursday just nine days after the Angels had obtained him via the same route from the San Diego Padres Kingman who has now been with four teams ths year had played in just 10 games for the Angels batting 194 with two home runs and four runs batted in He was the New York Mets' leading home run hitter in each of the previous two years but was involved in a contract dispute throughout spring training When be refused to sign the Mets traded him to San Diego Kingman who hit 37 home runs last season and 36 the year before for the Mets has 22 homers this year safety of my players I'd rather take the loss and leave here with my whole team" Hartsfield said he found it difficult to understand Weaver's decision "What has he got to gain? This way he's a loser Why not protest the game and continue on and take your chances?" Denny Doyle the last hitter in Boston's lineup delivered a bases triple in a six-run sixth inning The Yankees won the first two games of the three-game series The attendance of 55218 raised the three-game total to 164852 the largest for any three-game series in the majors since June 6-8 1958 when the Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Braves attracted 171326 at the Los Angeles Coliseum Time Limit Prevents Courageous's Victory had only 1:10 to finish the race when he rounded the fifth mark Even though winds picked up to six knots he couldn't make it "I told the guys with 20 minutes to go we wouldn't make it" said Turner "and it was a very sad time" Gary Jobson tactician aboard Courageous added: "If it takes 512 hours to go 243 miles (the distance of the course) in a I2-meter there probably shouldn't be a race any way" Courageous was within 570 yards of the finish line when the 512-hour time limit expired It was only the second time in the I26-year history of the America's Cup that a race in the final series was abandoned because of the time limit The only other time such an event occurred was Sept 22 1958 in a race between America's Columbia and Sceptre of England The New York Yacht Club said it would reschedule the second race of the series for today and both boats Indicated they would be ready The race was close through three legs with Courageous leading by 44 seconds at the third mark On the fourth leg Australia skipper Noel Robins tried to run out a wind shift he found but failed leaving Australia at a near standstill Turner who had sailed off to the south the direction in which the wind was rotating moved to a lead of 10:45 at the fourth mark That appeared to be the end of it But then began Turner's race with the clock The Courageous didn't make it Sportswaves Mischa 11 1030 pm WSOC-AM (930)—Brivms Lo!
