:34JLGd ,l6sbuf9Jkgji^ Wtdhesday.Juhe 20, 1973 Dan Ness Back To Prove Point ».rn i.1 ,o in CICL By JOE MOtffilSSEY (Sports Editor) " Dati-Ness doesn't Like to do tilings-Halfway. That's one reason he's back in Galesburg this summer. Tdie second baseman from LSU-New Orleans played for - tine....Galesburg Pioneers in the l.CIGp^test summer, but didn't - do -«£ good in the hit department. He thinks he can do miiGh better and is back to proWit. hit only .225 last year, but I know I can do much better than'that," Ness said. "I want to prove to people litat I can hit Tri' this league and I know I can,.'.'.. * One. of the reasons Ness is confident otf improving this sea- 'soriMsthe fact that he is a different type of hitter now. b$s% year the Pioneer infielder was trying to pull the baff"much of the time. Now he is going with the pitch and hit•ting-to the opposite field fre- ." quetiply. Dan started to hit that way this'spring at LSU when Coach Dan Ness Ron Maestri, former Peoria Pacer coach, told him that was what he would have to do if he was going anywhere professionally. Ness had a good spring at New Orleans, batting .310. His average was much higher in the earlier part of the season but dropped ofif in the end. "I was leading off before the coach put ime in the second spot, and I had to hit to the right side to advance the runnier," Ness explained. "My average dropped a little but I felt I was doing a better job for the team." Ness had some impressive staitflistics this spring. In addition to the .310 batting average, he was second on tine team in runs ba/tted in and tied for second in runs scored. Dan's biggest contribution at LSU may have come in the defensive department. He com matted only four errors in 123 chances at second base this spring. So far this year Ness is hw- ing his troubles with CICL pitch' ing, hitting safely only once hi the first 19 times at bait. "I know I'm going to start hitting," Ness insisted. "I didn't hit for about a month before I came here. I've just got to get back into .the groove. Ness is determined to concen­ trate on hitting, but he had one distracting experience before he ever reached Galesburg. He had more than $800 In personal property, including a portable television, stolen from his car. The second baseman is high on this year's Pioneer team and thinks that it will be a contender. "There are some real fine ballplayers on our team, some of the best I've ever seen,", , . _. . . Ness said. "If our pitching holds R un T „ ancl scorc< \ **** up and our hitting comes along. Cards' Bid For '.500' Foiled Again ST. LOUIS (UPI) - Steve Renko stopped the Cardinals on three hits in seven innings Tuesday night to help Montreal to a 3-1 win over St. Louis, once again blocking the Cardinals' drive • toward a .500 record. The game was scoreless until the sixth. Boots Day led off with a single, went to second on a sacrifice, to third on a we'll be real tough to beat." Ness concedes that the curren Pioneers aren't going to bo power hitting club but says it should hit for average and has good speed "Some of the players have been away from competition longer than I have," Ness explained. Ness himself can contribute to the team speed. ,As a right- handed batter he has been clocked to first at 4.0. He runs the 60-yard dash in 6.9. If determination can do it, consider it done Gordie Howe Joins Sons, Has Million-Dollar Contract HOUSTON (UPI) - Gordie •'Howe signed a $1 million contract Tuesday to join his song -,fO ,n the Houston Aeros of ...the World Hockey Association ./.and;- ^immediately issued a warning to any opposing player who-^might have ideas of • making it rough on one of his boysT? c S'Ui East Moline Race Results FIRST RACE: (4 Furlongs) — Gallant- Landing (Jf Compton) -.6.00 4.00 2.80 Flipomatic (R.

"If he gets a Howe, then he's going to hear from me," Howe said after signing a four-year pact with the Aeros, ending a two-year retirement from ac tive playing. "I won't go after them, but if I get a shot at him, I'll take it," he said. "I'll make sure the Howes will be even. Actually I hate to be even. I'd rather be one up." Howe's signing came exactly two weeks after his sons, Mark, 18, and Marty, 19, signed four- year contracts with the Aeros. Howe's contract was the third highest in WHA history, behind Bobby Hull's $2.5 million and Derek Sanderson's $1.5 million. "My only regret, and I have only one, is that I'm sorry I'm not the Gordie Howe I was 10 years ago so I could go out and fulfill what the Aeros want of me and repay them for what they're doing for me," the 45- year-old Howe said. Under the contract, Howe will play as many years as he desires and then join the team in a front office position.

Pinch Hitter XI en as Boosts Angels to Win at Chicago CHICAGO (UPI) - Pinch hitler Winston Llenas didn't want to wait and figured to "hit anything close," so he picked on Wilbur Wood's first pitch Tuesday night for a three- run homer to give the California Angels a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. Llenas, who said he accepted "my role" as a bench warmer and pinch hitter for the Angels, said "I just wanted to meet the ball and I was lucky enough to do it." His drive, reaching the lower deck in left field, was his first major league home run and came after a .single by Alan Gallagher and a pinch double by Billy Grabarkewitz to give pitcher Bill Singer his 11th win against tlu'eu defeats. | "I knew he would throw nie la knuckleball," Llenas said, J "and I looked lor it. I think {it hung. It wasn't dancing." Wood, losing for the fifth time in the last six decisions, said the pitch was "up and in," a strike. "He could have popped it up just as well as hit it out," Wood said. "Im just doing the best I can," Wood added. "The last two games they've hit three balls hard on me and we've lost both of them and we've been hitting the hell out of the ball at people." Angels Manager Brjbby Winkles praised both his pinch hitters and his pi Idler for the win. "We've had good luck with pinch hitters WJ far," lie said. "They must be hitting .270 or .280. "I stayed with Singer longer | than I wanted to, but sometimes it's important to let a guy! finish a game. Bill pitched well m hfo la^ rr |oqr stjyrtS ,.£*ceBt the last three innings, and I wanted to let him finish." The defeat, the 12th loss in the last 17 games for Chicago, knocked the Sox out of first place for the first time since | April 29, a span of 45 games. The Angeles moved within a game (i first place while the Sox dropped to second place only four percentage points of third place Oakland. The Angels - Sox series will end today with Steve Stone on the mound for Chicago against California's Nolan Hyan.
