Orioles Select Catchers First Michael Ivie « · » Top Pick NEW YORK (AP- The Baltimore Orioles chose catchers aa their first selections Thursday in (he annual summer draft of baseball free agents. The division · leading Orioles also picked a catcher on the sixth round to go along with five infielders, two outfielders, three right handed pitchers and one left handed pitcher. The annual draft by major leaguebaseball clubs is restricted to high school and college graduates as well as unsigned 21.year-otds. A second round will be held Friday. The orioles chose James R. West, a 17-year-old catcher fron St Louis, Mo., as their first draft pick. Other choices, in order, were Mchael J. Satterlee, 17, Portland, Ore., catcher; Eddie Blake Jr., 17, East St. Louis, HI., pitcher; Dan Beerbower, 18, Taft, Calif., 3rd base: Ed House, 17, Birmingham, Ala., pitcher; Bon Hodges, 20, Rocky Mount, Va., catcher; Don Hickey, 20, Arlington, Va., shortstop. Also Anthony Leopaldi, 17, Bloomfield, N. J., outfielder; Tim Nordbrook, 20, Baltimore, shortstop; Bob Andrews, 17, Torrence, Calif., outfielder; Sylvester Caudle, 18, Los Angeles, outfielder; George Hutson, 20, Eicon, Ga., pitcher; George Underwood, 19, Logan, W. Va., pitcher, and Olen Bartley, 19, Lakewood, Calif., shortstop. | Michael Ivie, a'17-year-old catcher from Decatur, Ga. and Steve Dunning, the right-handed pitching ace of Stanford University, were the first two players taken Thursday* Ivie, a 6-foot-2, 198-pound receiver whose defensive ability and power potential had caught the eye of most major league scouts, went to the San Diego Padres as the No. 1 selection. The Cleveland Indians, with second choice by virtue of their last place finish in the American League in 1969, grabbed Dunning, a 6-2, 205-pounder who is regarded as nearly ready for the big time after compiling a 13-2 record at Stanford. He is 21 and thus eligible for the draft along with all June high school grads, college grads and junior college athletes. Commissioner Bowie Kuhn opened the draft meeting at a midtown hotel with a warning against tampering with other club's selections. He also told the 24 clubs they were obligated to conduct "meaningful honest- to-God negotiations with their draft choices within 15 days after they become eligible." Cautioning against any violation of the tampering rule, Commissioner Kuhn said, "Any contact with selected players (of other clubs) will be suspicious on the face of it. You have an obligation to refrain from contact in any way with a selected player. There have been indications this has not been fully complied with in the past." The summer draft of players who never have signed professional contracts was expected to result in the selection of more than 1,000 young men in the two-day period ending Friday. Some players are eligible to be signed immediately. Others must still be graduated or complete school or college eligibili- THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland FrMay, J«K », 1*7* Page B-l ty. Clubs draft in reverse order of last year's finish. Each major league team takes one pick for itself, one for a Triple A farm and one for a Double A farm. However, unlimited drafting is permitted at the Class A level. Of course the players do not belong to the teams that drafts them. The only thing involved is an exclusive negotiating right If the player decides not to sign, his name goes back into the pool for future drafting, depending on his eligibility.

See Draft B-3 Oakland Tops Orioles 4-2 OAKLAND (AP) - Home runs by Frank Fernandez and Sal Bando and a clutch relief job by Mudcat Grant gave the Oakland A*s a 4-2 victory over Baltimore Thursday night, the Orioles* fourth loss in five games. Fernandez' fifth homer, a two-run shot, capped a three- run uprising against loser Tom Phoebus, 3-4, in the fifth inning that erased a 1-0 Baltimore lead. Don Mincher, who had just singled home the tying run, was aboard when Fernandez connected. Jim Hunter, 8-5, held the Orioles to four hits through seven innings, including Frank Robin, son's run-scoring single in the third, but was routed in the eighth. Orioles Manager Earl Weaver had a simple explanation for the two Oakland victories in the three-game series. "They beat us at our own game- hitting the home run," he said. "That's what we're supposed to do. That's how the Mets beat us in the World Series." But Weaver didn't seem worried- and with little wonder. The Orioles still hold a commanding 6-game lead over the rest of the American League East. Baltimore 001 000 010-/70 Oakland 000 003 10x-490 Phoebus, Hardin (6), Leonard (7).

Siebert earned his fifth victory in seven decisions as the Red Sox made it two straight over Minnesota. Andrews, who has 10 hits in his last 14 times at bat drilled a two-run homer, his fifth, into the left field screen in the sixth, finishing Minnesota starter Jim Kaat. Conigliaro, a last minute replacement for injured brother Tony in right field, extended his hitting streak to six games by following ttith 1,1s fourth homer, long shot into the screen in walk to Eddie Leon with the bases loaded by rookie Ray Peters. Yankees, 2; Royals, 1 NEW YOKK CAP) - Horace Clarke, who broke up a no-hit bid by Kansas City left-hander Jim Rooker with a leadoff single in the ninth inning and scored the tying run, hit a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the 12th to give the New York Royals Would Pay Him $125,000 Flood's Services Vc Tigers 4; Angels 2 ied NEW YORK'(AP) - Ewing Kauffman, owner of the Kansas City Royals, testified Thursday in the Curt Flood case that he would pay the former St Louis Cardinal outfielder $100,000 to $125,000 a year and possibly more on a long-term contract to play with his team. Despite the fact, that Kauffman was called as a defense witness for baseball, the statement, drawn out under cross-examination, was considered significant to Flood's contention that the sport operates in restraint of trade within the framework of the controversial reserve system. Kauffman's statement, according to attorney Jay Topkis, also is a "way to prove dam- Touching All The Bases WITH STAN GOLDBERG Heading For The Districts TO THE SURPRISE of almost no one, Brunswick is. headed for the district baseball finals this Saturday at Frostburg State College. To the surprise of many, so is Thomas Johnson. The Railroaders were suppose to go to the finals. They have one of the strongest teams in the area and have dominated local B-C competition. They easily beat Williamsport 9-1 in first round action Wednesday. On the other hand, while TJ finished with an impressive 95 record, the Pats are not suppose to win in first round Class A-AA district action Wednesday against South Hagerstown just like the Patriot basketball team wasn't suppose to win a first round district game against Allegany. But like in basketball, the baseball team pulled an upset and beat the Tri-State champions who had defeated TJ twice earlier this year. * * » "WE DIDN'T DO anything wrong," TJ coach Joe Polce said about the South game. "It's the best game we've played and the best that Bob Stockman has pitched this year," Stockman threw a one-hitter in the five inning, rain- shortened game. TJ won 7-0. "I'll probably go again with Stockman Saturday against Allegany," Polce continued. "He only pitched five innings Wednesday and he has a strong arm." According to Polce he had a feeling TJ would win when they got on the bus for the trip to Hagerstown where the South game was played. "I didn't know what to expect because we haven't played for two weeks," he said. But when we got on that bus no one said a word and I felt we were ready." The Patriots have been an up and down club all year. They seem to play best against rough opposition. The Pats have good pitching in Stockman, Roy Angleberger and Mike Adams and good hitting in Angleberger and Snoots. They will have to be at their best against Allegany which is 13-2. "We are going up there with the idea we are going to knock them off," Polce said. "I'd just like for us to play one game like the one against South. ages*' in the $-million antitrust suit brought by Flood. The Kansas City owner's estimate of what he would pay Flood if the outfielder were free o join the Royals is significant- y higher man what Die Philadelphia Phillies offered Flood when he was acquired from the Cards in a trade. According to Flood, he was offered "a little more" than $90,000 in salary, plus $8,000 in spring training expenses, Kauffman, of course, is larred from negotiating with Flood by the reserve clause provision in the reserve system, wtich ties a player to the club that signs him until it either trades, sells or releases him. Asked if Flood is now free to sign with him, Kauffman replied: "My understanding is he is not" Kauffman earlier had testified lie would not have invested in the sport if it didn't have the reserve system and immunity un- * * * AS USUAL the soft spoken Brunswick coach Delphy Gaither was short on words as he talked about his team. He usually lets the boy's do the talking for him with bats in their hands. They've been speaking very loudly the whole season. The Railroaders, who are 12-2 on the year, carry a lusty team batting average of .316. They have two boys batting over .400 and another large crop in the 300's. But the real story of the team has been pitcher Ricky Dawson who has been as stingy with runs as a miser is with his money. The Brunswick hardier had allowed only one earned run in 41 innings for a .16 earned run average. He has struck out 88 and has dominated Monacacy Valley baseball like Frederick's Kenny Boyd did in Tri-State basketball. With all these credentials the Railroaders still could have trouble. They went to the finals last year almost as good credentials, but lost. "Despite that the boys are pretty confident now," Gaither said. "On the other hand I haven't heard a thing about Bruce. Bruce might not have heard anything about Brunswick either. But if Dawson is on the hitters come through they will know plenty by Saturday. The game begins at 1 p.m. with TJ to follow at 4 p.m. der federal antitrust laws. Also testifying was Bob Reynolds, owner of the California Angels, who insisted under cross-examination that he didnt think baseball could operate successfully. Keynolds, who also is a vice president and director of pro football's Los Angeles Bams, did so despite admitting that pro football had proposed since changing over to an option system in 1948. The Angels' executive also said, in answer to a hypothetical question revolving around California shortstop Jim Fregosi playing out his option and signing with the New York Mets, that he did not think receiving pitcher Tom Seaver in compensation "would help us materially." Under the pro football clause, a player may play out his option on the second year of his contract and then become a free agent, free to negotiate with any club. The new club must compensate the old club for his services. If a dispute over compensation arises, the commissioner is asked to award fair compensation. Reynolds cited the compensatory rule as being one of the problems "because in my view compensation in baseball would be a difficult procedure." Asked if a rule guaranteeing "fair compensation" wouldn't insure a club equal compensation, Reynolds replied, "I'm not certain it would." Near the end of his cross examination, Reynolds was asked by Topkis to assume that Fregosi, under a pro football type setr up, had played out his option and signed with the Mets. He was asked to further assume that Seaver was awarded to the Angels in compensation "Would you consider you were grievously hurt by that?" Topkis asked. ANAHEIM (AP) - Al Kaline's two-run double with two out in the eighth inning snapped a tie and boosted the Detroit Tigers to a 4-2 victory over the California Angels Thursday night. Kaline, who had an RBI single earlier, now has amassed 2,499 career hits, putting him in a third place tie on the all-time Tiger list with Harry Hielmann. The Tigers broke a 2-2 deadlock with their two-out flurry in the eighth after Angel starter Tom Murphy, 6-5, had retired 15 men in succession. The triumph went to left-han- der Les Cain, 4-2, who weathered several periods of wildness. Cain allowed eight hits, struck out three and walked five. He also hit two batters. Red Sox 5; Twins 1 BOSTON (AP) - Mike Andrews and Billy Conigliaro continued their hot hitting with homers and Carl Yastrzemski contributed three singles Thursday as the Bdston Red Sox breezed to a 5-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Veteran right-hander Sonny gles to Cesar Tovar and Rod Carew to start the game but set- tied down and allowed three hits the rest of the way. Indians, 8; Brewers, 4 MILWAUKEE (AP) - Catch- [ er Ray Fosse's three-run homer topped a 13-hit attack by the Cleveland Indians Thursday for an 8-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Phil Hennigan, who took over after the leadoff man, Tommy Harper, doubled off starter Barry Moore, was the winner. Moore left the game, complaining of a sore neck. Fosse's homer came in the sixth inning, following a double by Vada Pinson, an intentional walk and Duke Sims' single on which Pinson was thrown out at the plate. The homer was hit off John O'Donoghue, third Milwaukee pitcher. Ted Savage hit a homer for the Brewers in the fourth off Hennigan who was replaced by Dennis Higgins when the Brewers rallied in the seventh. The Indians got two in the first on singles by Ted Uhlaen- der and Pinson, a walk, Tony Horton's sacrifice fly and a Ron Woods opened the 12th with a single, the fifth hit off Rooker, 3-3. John Ellis hit into a force play, but Gene Michael's single and a walk to pinch hitter Pete Ward filled the bases. Clarke then hit the second pitch from reliever Moe Dra- bowsky to center field, scoring pinch runner Jerry Kenney. White Sox 7; Senators 3 WASHINGTON (AP) - Walt Williams hit a first pitch home run off Dick Bosnian, touching off a four-run first inning Thursday night, and the Chicago White Sox swept to a 7-3 victory over the Washington Senators. _ Chicago starter Jerry CriderT 2-2 lasted six innings with Danny Murphy taking over after Crider walked the leadoff batter in the seventh. Luis Aparicio was safe on Ed Brinkman's error following Williams* homer and Carlos May and Bill Melton followed with singles for one run. May scored on Tom McCraw's infield out and McCraw came in on Bobby Knooji's double. ~ Williams* triple and Aparicio's single accounted for a run in the second, knocking out Bosman. Long Distance May Help High Echelon In Belmont NEW YOBK (AP) - Personality has more ability but it wouldn't be surprising if his sta- blemate, High Echelon, won Saturday's Belmont Stakes. That was the opinion Thursday of trainer John Jacobs following gallops at Belmont Park by Personality, the Preakness winner, and High Echelon. "I think Personality is better cnan High Echelon at any distance," said Jacobs who has saddled the son of Hail to Keason -- Affectionately for victories in three $100,000-added races in his last four starts. But the feeling of many observers is that the added distance of the iVs-mile Belmont will help the late-closing High Echelon who ran out of track in Gilbert, Herbert Share Early Lead In Kemper inishing third in the Kentucky Derby and fourth in the Preakness and Jersey Derby. If the extra distance does put High Echelon into the winner's circle "I wouldn't be surprised," said Jacobs. The toughest rival for Personality and High Echelon, owned by Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs, John's mother, appears to be Raymond M. Curtis' My Dad George, but there is growing support for Thomas Fleming Jr's Needles n Pens. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Longshot Gibby Gilbert birdied his final hole Thursday for a six-under-par 66 and tied veteran Lionel Herbert for the first- round lead in the $150,000 Kemper Open Golf Tournament The 29-year-old Gilbert, a former club pro from Hollywood, Fla., is in his first full year on the tour. He finished seventh at Doral, his first tournament this year in February, then startled the golfing world with a victory in the tough Houston Champions International about a month ago. The 42-year-old Herbert, who scored the last of his five victories in the Florida Citrus open in 1966, had eight birdies in his sparkling round- on the Quail Hollow Country Club course, a par 72 layout with a leg-wearing length of 7,231 yards. Herbert and Gilbert held a one-stroke lead over Lou Graham, who recorded an eagle three on his final hole, the ninth, for a 67. Former Masters champion Art Wall, Tom Weiskopf, Mike Hill and Bob Lunn followed at 68, while Arnold Palmer, 58- year-old Sam Snead and Gene Littler headed the group at 69. Pre-tourney favorite Jack Nickltus had a 73. well back, and defending champion Dale Douglass took a 72. Lee Trevincr managed only a 73. Billy Casper and Gary Player are not comoeting. Herbert, who played early in the morning, had more than his opponents to worry about.
