Bill Madlock spoke at a Mount Zion dinner as camera clicked Cubs Don't Have to Win: Madlock Bill Madlock was the guest speaker at the Mount Zion Boys Baseball fund-raising dinner Tuesday night, and like his performance with the Chicago Cubs over the past three sea-son, the two-time National League batting champion was a smashing success. Traded to the San Francisco Giarits along with infielder Rob Sperring for outfielder Bobby Murcer, infielder Steve Onti-veros and pitcher Andy Muhls-tock, Madlock tried to explain the swap to the gathering of about 300 boys baseball boosters. "I came with something of a prepared speech," said Madlock. "But the trade rules that out." Instead the former Eisenhower High all-around athlete, turned the evening into a ouestion-answer period with the youngsters in the audience firing away with the questions. Madlock Trade Most Startling You might say the Bill Mad lock trade was the most start ling in more than 50 years. Two-time batting champions are not trade bait. Chicago Cubs fans are neces sarily upset. The way St. Louis Cardinals fans were in 1926. The Cardinals and New York Giants discussed a possible deal for Rogers Hornsby in the early winter of 1926. Hornsby, the best right-han ded hitter in baseball history. was at a peak of popularity in St. Louis. He managed the Cardinals to the 1926 pennant. The first Cardinals pennant. And the Cardin als beat the New York Yankees in the World Series. In the memorable seventh game, Hornsby called in Gro-ver Cleveland Alexander from the bullpen to replace pitcher Jesse Haines. The Yankees had the bases loaded with Tony Lazzeri at bat. Alexander struck out Lazzeri to save the 3-2 victory. Alexander supposedly was hung over at the time. After pitching a 10-2 victor y over the previous day and celebrating appropriately afterward. Alexander's history-making strikeout came in the seventh inning. He retired the Yankees in order in the eighth, then wal ked Babe Ruth in the ninth with two out. Ruth was thrown out trying to steal. Alexander was a hero. So was Hornsby. Even though Hornsby failed to win a seventh straight bat- Larose Leads Blues Over Black Hawks By The Associated Press Claude Larose scored three goals for the second time in four games and equaled his season high with No. 25, pacing the St. Louis Blues to a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Black Hawks in a National Hockey League game Tuesday night at St. Louis. The victory boosted the Blues' first-place lead in the Smythe Division to four points over Chicago. It was St. Louis' third victory in five meetings with the Black Hawks. Last Tuesday, Larose scored three goals for the fourth time in his 14 seasons against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He opened the scoring against Chi 3 vrr.jrM1, Madlock professed to be satisfied with the trade and his eagerness to play with the Giants. 'San Francisco is a beautiful city," said Bill. "How can anyone not like living there." Bill noted that the astroturf field the Giants play on should provide a few more base hits and he wasn't worried about the oftentimes chilly 'Frisco weather. Madlock's chief squawk with the Cubs was over salary. He reportedly was asking for something in the neighborhood of S200.000 a year and a multi- year contract. Bill won t confirm any figures, but he is far more concerned with the Cubs' talk about negotiating. Madlock made it clear he had some regrets over leaving the Cubs. "They (the fans) are the greatest in the world," said Bill. "I made many friends in Chicago and I'll hate leaving Bob Fallstrom 1 Sports Editw f'M0 ; Wk ting championship. His average dropped from .403 to .317, allowing Bubbles Hargrave, Cincinnati catcher, to become champ with .353. Alter all, Hornsby won the pennant and World Series. What more can you ask? Hornsby inevitablf demanded more money. He was offered a one-year contract at $50,000, so the story goes. Hornsby wanted a long-term contract. There were other problems. Hornsby and Cardinals owner Sam Breadon did not get along. There was continuous friction. The salary squabble was the final blow-up. Breadon decided to trade Hornsby. He contacted the Giants. The Giants eagerly okayed a deal which sent second baseman Frank Frisch and pitcher Jimmy Ring to St. - Louis. Frisch was a standout player. Still, the Cardinals fans raged in protest. Indignation meetings were held. Newspapers denounced Breadon. Eventually, Breadon had to disconnect his telephone to escape abuse. cago just game. 47 seconds into the At 6:47 of the second period, Larose made it 3-1 when he intercepted a pass and beat Black Hawks goalie Tony Espo-sito. Larose scored his second goal in the second period and matched his best single season output when he converted a pass from Larry Patey at 18:15. St. Louis' Bob Gassoff and Bob Murray of Chicago traded goals in the first period, as. the Blues broke to a 2-1 lead. Bernie Federko closed out the scoring for St. Louis. liWfifWlfiUniVii 4 them along with my friends here at home. "Mr. Wrigley (P.K. Wrigley, owner of the Cubs) also know what great fans the Cubs have in Chicago and throughout the state. He knows they will show for games, win or lose. That's why the Cubs will never win. Wrigley knows they don't really have to." Madlock leaves for San Francisco this morning and the Giants will hold a press conference there tonight. "I expect to sign a contract with the Giants in the next day or two," said Madlock. "I have talked with the Giants by telephone and anticipate no difficulties. In any event, I won't leave San Francisco until I'm signed." Madlock acknowledged that Murcer is a fine ball player. The Cardinals did not win the 1927 pennant, losing out by a game and a half to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Meanwhile, Hornsby hit .361 for New York. And then was traded to the Boston Braves. Frisch turned cut to be a St Louis favorite and eventually managed the 1934 pennant winners. Until now, the Hornsby deal was the most stunning deal in major league history. Shipping Bill Madlock to the Giants rates in the same category. Madlock certainly is a headline-maker. Just like Hornsby. Starting when Madlock was traded to the Chicago Cubs by the Texas Rangers for pitcher Fergie Jenkins. Madlock took over at third base for the immensely popular Ron Santo. A year later, Madlock won the All-Star game with a ninth inning hit and went on to win the National League batting championship. Last season .Madlock repeated as champ by going 4-for-4 on the final day to overtake Cincinnati's Ken Griffey. And now the stunning trade.
