Creighton concentrated its defense on Thompson, one of the prime reasons Ma'r q u e 1 1 e gained an NCAA berth with a 21-4 record and the No. 8 spot in The Associated Press rankings.

Unfortunately, it's wrapped around Jim Lonborg's valuable left knee. Lonborg, the tall right-hander who won 22 games and a Cy Young Award in Boston's dramatic surge to the 1967 American League pennant, was a surprise visitor Thursday at the Red Sox' first full-squad drill. "I just want to be on the scene with the rest of the guys," said Lonborg, who injured his knee while skiing just before Christmas and underwent surgery. He said he plans to return to Boston to have the cast removed next Tuesday and then drive back to Winter Haven, Fla,, to begin getting the knee back in shape. He is not expected to pitch until mid-May. Rain disrupted workouts for most of the Florida-based teams. But not before Minnesota Twins' Manager Cal Ermer and infielder Sandy Alomar of the Chicago White Sox were forced to the sidelines. Ermer tore a leg muscle while reaching for a thrown ball while Alomar was struck in the face by a ball and suffered a minor nosebleed, ,/>••/ -''^ ; The holdout ranks were thinned somewhat when pitcher Jim Merritt, who had a ,13-7 record, signed with the Twins and shortstop Ruben Amarp be» came the last of thf New York Yankees to come to terms* BQth received an estimated. |84,000, However, outfielder Tony OU» va yf. the Twins, third baseman Clete Boyer of the Atlanta Braves, eight Cinslnn&U Beds and three key Houston Astros still were unsigned, CEILING SPLENDOR at New York's Madison Square Garden provides functional beauty while lighting bat* ketball game played below.
