|MI Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday, Sept. 7, 1972 Repercussions may be heard By TDM SALAD1NO Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - For the first time in the history of major league baseball, a strike— but not one thrown by a pitcher—could play the key role in determining the American League champion in 1972. When the players struck last April for an Improved pension plan and stayed out 11 days, the problem set. in but wasn't considered serious until now. The AL schedule was only delayed and the games missed would not be made up, the owners decided. Rut now with less than four weeks left in the regular season, six clubs are in contention in each division and since the title goes to the club with the best percentage, the ending could be controversial, to say the least. If the clubs all finish with the same number of losses, the Detroit Tigers would win the East and the Oakland A's the West since Detroit only lost six games because of the walkout while Boston and Now York each lost seven and Baltimore eight. In the West, Oakland missed .seven and Chicago eight. Here's how it could look on Oct. 4.

It's a problem but we'll have to take our chances." Marvin Miller, executive director of the Major League Players Association, agrees the setup is "unrealistic" but as to an advantage or disadvantage to the clubs, says, "You won't really know until it's over."

(AP)— Southern Illinois University Coach Dick Towers was both pleased and disappointed following a 90-minute Saluki football scrimmage Wednesday, the final full-scale warmup preceding their Sept. 16 season opener at East Carolina. Senior fullback Thomas Thompson provided the smiles for Towers as he rushed 115 yards in seven carries and scored two touchdowns. / Towers was disappointed, however, at the quar-^ terbacking of Larry Perkins and Jim Sullivan, both of whom are vying for the job as successor to 1971 quarterback Brad Pancoast. Both QB hopefuls completed only six of 16 passes and suffered two interceptions.

Placekicker Mike Clark helped power the Dallas Cowboys to their first Super Bowl appearance ... now he's been booted off the team. Clark, whose unerring performance In clutch situations played a major role in Dallas' surviving the playoffs and playing in the Super Bowf two seasons ago, was picked up on Cowboy waivers Wednesday by the Buffalo Bills. H i s departure means Austrian Toni Fritsch, a soccer-style kicker in his second year of football, becomes the fJo.l placekicker for the National Football League champions. Fritsch Is the second youngster to push aside a veteran. Dallas dealt four-year veteran punter Ron Wiclby to the Green Bay Packers and replaced him with rookie Marv Bateman. Clark, a 10-year veteran, booted two field goals against Cleveland two years ago in he playoffs and provided Dallas with a 6-2 triumph. The Cowboys had defeated Detroit 5-0 in the first playoff game of that season on a Clark field goal and a safety. In other pro football transactions Wednesday, Pat Studstill, an 11-year veteran wide receiver and punter, was acquired by the New England Patriots on waivers from the Los Angeles Rams. Studstill, who averaged 41.4 yards per punt last season, will be used solely as a punter by New England. He spent seven seasons with Detroit and the last four with the Rams. Mike Mercer, a 10-year pro Gaudy cap is big help to A's manager By JERRY LISKA CHICAGO (AP)—Manager Dick Williams of the Oakland A's wore a gaudy Tarn O'Shanter cap for good luck, but the real luck was crammed into the booming bats of Joe Rudi, Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando and even a pinch-hitter, Don Mincher. "We came willing to settle for a half-a-pie, but now we'll go for two and try to leave here five games in front," said Williams after the A's thumped the Chicago White Sox 9-1 Wednesday. It was the opener of a vital two-game set between the two American League West title contenders which winds up tonight with Chicago's Wilbur Wood (23-12) dueling Oakland's Vida Blue (5-7). Williams came to the plate for the pregame huddle with the umpires wearing a tarn of Kelly Green striped with California gold and polar bear white. It was one of some 5,000 such Scottish caps A's owner Charles 0. Finley is using to promote his Memphis Tains of the American Basketball Association. "It brought me luck, and I may wear it again tonight," said Williams. Finley, who has his A's garbed in the same bright colors, said he wasn't sure whether he would have his players wear the tarns instead of the traditional peaked baseball caps. "The rales just say all the players have to wear the same things," said Finley. GUARANTEED INVESTMENT!
