In the hockey promotional film previewed yesterday at Combined Communications Corp., where it was produced for the Phoenix Hockey Club by director Mike Lee. Roadrunner announcer Mike Lange does commentary for the lively 15-minute production which shows the Runners yielding an opening goal — and then volleying a bar* rage in scenes from regular season and Patrick Cup playoff action. Roadrunner president Jim Wells said sponsor-prints soon will be available for showing at clubs and booster groups. Arrangements can be made with the hockey office for future showings, he said. Two weeks to deadline Horsemen interested in entering juveniles in the Arizona Breeders Futurity and Derby have less than two weeks to nominate runners. Turf Paradise officials noted closing date for nominations for the two stakes is July 10, also that two-year-old thoroughbreds nominated for the races will be preferred for stalls. Both races are $4.000 added events, with the 6-furlong futurity scheduled to be run Dec. 9 and the one-mile derby set for March 3,1974. One nominating fee of $30 covers both stakes, with sustaining payments totaling $150 to follow before .the Turf Paradise season opens Oct. 31. Associated Press ARLINGTON, Tex. - In the future, Arlington Stadium may be referred to as "The House That David Built." "We needed something like this to stay in business," Texas Ranger owner Bob Short said Wednesday night after his $100,000 bonus baby, David Clyde, wowed a sellout crowd of 35,698 with one-hit pitching over five innings. The Rangers Went on to defeat Minnesota, 4-3. While Clyde's major league debut wasn't a 100 per cent artistic success, it filled the stadium for the first time in two years. "Isn't it ironic that it took an 18-year-old high school pitching star to pack the house even when the debut of major league baseball two years ago wouldn't do it?" said Short. "Of course, the kid is from Texas and was perhaps the most highly-publicized draft choice in major league history." Clyde pitched nine no-hitters at Houston Westchester High School and had made headlines across the state even before he was drafted by the lowly Rangers, one of the worst teams in major league baseball. American League president Joe Cronin put it another way: "Maybe this is God's way of bringing major league baseball to Dallas-Fort Worth." The Rangers finished under 700,000 in attendance last year and were some 30,000 behind last year's pace before young David appeared on the scene. He's scheduled to pitch again Monday night against the Chicago White Sox and anyone who saw his sizzling fast ball against the Twins will certainly be tempted to plunk down some hard cash for the encore. Clyde survived some peri- •••»' On this date ! Denny McLain dealt to Atlanta ! Braves. lous moments against the Twins for his first major league victory but kept his sense of humor. After giving up his only hit — a two-run homer to Mike Adams in the second inning — Clyde set the side down in order in the third frame. He sauntered over to Ranger manager Whitey Herzog and said "You know, this is fun." In Herzog's office after the game, young David tried to nibble part of his manager's pizza and Herzog said "You can have the whole thing." Asked what he was going to do Thursday, Clyde said he was driving his car over to a television studio for an interview. "No, sir, you're going in a limousine and you aren't going to drive," said Short. The calm, 6-foot-l, 195- pound Clyde was remarkably cool under pressure as the fans cheered his every move during the game. He dropped his cap before the National Anthem — the crowd Four Arizonans in mat meet Four Arizona wrestlers have entered the Senior National AAU Greco-Roman Championships today and Saturday in Costa Mesa, Calif. The top three finishers in each weight class qualify for a final selection training camp. Representatives for the U.S. will be selected at the camp and will compete in the world meet in September at Teheran Iran.
