"" KLri.,..;.Jli South prep cagers notch 67-63 victory THEARIIONA.RIPUWJO Saturday, August 15,1970 69 C-Town winner By MIKE McDERMOTT MESA—"Sure hope we can start hitting the ball." That was Chris-Town coach Ken Ashley's comment before last night's American Legion state baseball championship game at Rendezvous Park. And hit they did as the Maryvafe- Bourgade crew rapped out 12 hits to topple Chandler, 9-5, and capture the state Legion crown. Chris-Town got off to a shaky start, starter Steve Ingram finishing' the frame with three walks and a hit batsman. But Chandler couldn't take advantage of Ingram's wildness. After 3% innings Chandler held a 3-1 edge, but Chris-Town exploded with a six-run outburst in the fourth. Rob Walton led off the spree with a single and was followed by Joel Godfrey's safety. Both were advanced by Gil Stafford's sacrifice bunt and Rick Messner drew an intentional walk loading the bases. Chris Harshey then walked Jim Allen forcing in Walton and was followed by Gary Hough's RBI single to deep short. Then came the biggest hit of the tournament for Chris-Town. Frank Doughty blooped a single into short center just out of the reach of the outstretched glove of the centerfielder and three runs scrambled across the plate. During the traffic jam at the plate Doughty rounded second and headed for third. Harshey picked up the loose ball and threw wildly into left field, Doughty scoring to make it 7-3. Chris-Town will now represent Arizona in the Region 7 tournament to be held at Helena, Mont., beginning Aug. 26. Chris-Town's Chuck Milo received the Most Valuable Player award and the individual sportsmanship trophy went to Chandler catcher Joe Nix.

Hinson, Stockton leading Associated Press TULSA, Okla. - Larry Hinson and Dave Stockton, a couple of outsiders, escaped with the second round lead in the PGA National Championship yesterday as Southern Hills turned into a sullen sun-seared monster that chewed up the great names of golf. Hinson, a tour sophomore, and Stockton, a non-winner for two years, matched par 140 for two trips over the rolling, 6,962-yard layout that is armed with deep, clinging rough. They played in the relative cool of the morning, long before the temperature soared into the 100-plus range. The strength-sapping heat combined with delicate pin placements and the subtili- ties of the course itself to send the giants reeling. Jack Nicklaus lost four strokes to par on a stretch of four holes and took a fat 76 for 144. U.S. Open champion Tony Jacklin staggered in with a 79 for 153 and missed the cut for the final two rounds. Arnold Palmer made a move with two front side birdies, then collapsed to a four-over-par 39 coming home for 72. At the 12th, his gasping army of fans saw the millionaire roll up his pants and go after a ball in shallow water. He finished with a double bogey six.

Prep grid stars vie today Islander lead 9 x /2 By BOB EGER Republic Sports Writer HONOLULU-"Whenever you beat these buys in their own park, you've got to figure you've put in a pretty good night's work." The man doing the talking was Bob Garibaldi, the big right hander whose pitching talent has been a big factor in the Phoenix Giants' success this season. He had just baffled Hawaii's big bats with a four-hitter as the Giants clipped the Islanders, 5-1, Thursday night to square their seven-game series at three games each. "I really felt sharp," said Garibaldi. "I think I threw harder than I have in a long time, and I was catching the corners. Plus, I got away with a few pitches I usually don't get away with against this club. "Doug Griffin, their leadoff hitter, is a good example. I usually work him in and out and up and down and change speeds on him and he hits me like he owns me. Tonight I got behind him 3-0 and threw him two straight fast balls right down the middle and he popped up the second one." Garibaldi walked just one and struck out seven as he hiked his record to 14-7 and went the distance for the 17th time. He beat Dennis Bennett (15-8),' the only man in the league who has won more games than he has. It was the Giants' second straight victory over Hawaii, matching the Islanders' longest losing streak since May 18th. They haven't lost a series since then. It narrowed Hawaii's lead to 9Ms games in the Pacific Coast League South and kept the Islanders' magic number at 13. "If we can whittle away a couple of more games on that lead we might get them pressing a little," said Phoenix manager Hank Sauer. "I don't think this is the start of a tailspin," countered Hawaii skipper Chuck Tanner. "At least I hope not. We've just had two great games pitched against us in succession." "Garibaldi did a helluva job," said Sauer, "but we've come to expect that of him. The big difference for us is the fact that some of the guys are beginning to swing the bat for us." The recent batwork of Julio Linares, Dominie Blanco and Jim McKnight has given the Giants the big shot in the arm. 1 1 1 IMl 1 1 1 W I' H e«BHW: ' Sports Editor VERNE BOATXEil More fare on hair THE CUSTOMERS ALWAYS WRITE: In your article concerning the coaches' right to show authority on length of players' hair and sideburns. . . A boy who likes long hair and doesn't want to cut it . . : Mfhy does he play football? He must just want to raise trouble for the coach and ... be trying to gain attention. A coach doesn't coach for the money, but rather for his love of the game and for young people, so why must these people only burden the coach more? We believe the basic principle upon which a good and winning football team is based is "discipline". If a coach lets one boy have long hair and another smoke or drink and yet another keep late hours, then just where can a coach teach discipline? We also know that the basic thing wrong with a lot of America's youth is the lack of respect for authority. We believe that a person can and will stand up under a lot of today's problems if he will but learn to respect authority at all times, not when it is convenient for him. We have played under two coaches who have shown authority and carried it through . . . coaches Ranee Smith and Diz Reeves. We respect these men and would do anything and everything for them. KAYLE & WILLIS HAWS Eagar, Ariz. I admire your loyalty to your coaches. But the fallacy is in Unking long hair to all the problems of the world. A young man doesn't suddenly acquire respect for authority or stop smoking or drinking just because he gets a haircut. There are plenty of fine, longhaired athletes and I'm sure they would resent any implication that they aren't jnst as dedicated or disciplined as you. * * * , Dear Sir: If you haven't anything else to do but write about the length of an athlete's hair I suggest that they transfer you to Dear Abby's column. Rush, Eaton and Pont need none of your comments ... Where and when does a coach's authority begin? Either play by the rules or turn in your suit. I suggest you turn in your pen. NICK WANIC Sportswriters have been giving unsolicited advice to coaches for years, and I suspect they will continue doing so for many more. If the issue is so unimportant, why are you making such a big deal of it? * * * Dear Sir: Hooray for you!... . . . I'm glad to finally see a writer with the guts to take the players' side against the coaches . .. FRED KING Ordinarily, I'm on the coaches' side. But I happen to believe that everyone—including athletes — have a right to wear their hair however they please. And it has absolutely nothing to do with team discipline. * * » Dear Sir: ...

So, too, are football games. And that's theory of Cortez coach Pete Altieri, one of the North mentors in today's annual North-South AH-Star grid game which climaxed the 22nd ASCA Coaching Clinic. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Lumberjack Stadium under clear skies and temperatures in the low to middle 80s. Altieri reasons that mistakes due to lack of timing could mean the difference between victory and defeat. "Neither team really has its timing down because you can't do it in such a short period," said Altieri. "Both sides have the problem — the same exact problem and that's what evens it up." This is the bane of any all-star clash from the prep ranks to the pros. "The kids are here to make it a stiff defensive game," Altieri .said, "and a lot of people see it as a defensive battle all the way. I think it will be a little more wide open." Both clubs have the personnel to break the game open at any time with the North relying on the running and passing of Central quarterback Jerry Davis. South coaches Karl Kiefer of McClintock and Wayland Harris of Florence, will look to the 9.8 speed of Eloy running back Benny Malone. Central's Ray Laing, who heads up the North staff, is expected to utilize Davis' ability to execute the triple option to keep the South defense off guard. "Fumbles will play a big part in the game," said Altieri, "along with pass interceptions. In All-Star games you just never can tell what will happen." Altieri pointed out that probably one of the best parts of the game will be missed by the majority of the fans. Citing the fact that both teams have superior interior lines, both offensively and defensively, Altieri figures the individual battles there could rival the exploits of the much heralded backs. This is a feeling shared by McClintock's Ron Cosner of the South's staff. Joining Davis in the starting North backfield will be Barton Warren of South Mountain and Richard Diller of Washington at the running backs with Jack Johnson of Round Valley at flanker. In the South backfield will be McClintock's Stan Andrews at quarter- Continued on Page 74 T 6unK , Los Angeles {Foster 8-9 and Moeller 5-5) at Chicago (HoJtzman 12-9 and"Jenkins >4-13),,2; San DTago (Wilson 0-2) at W mm$$s&, North t t • OFFENSE DP-Phoenix 1, Hawaii 1.

Arnph R Ttmii, Amm C ,-,,^. v^vik AK Baker's late clutch play is difference By HARDY PRICE Republic Sports Writer FLAGSTAFF - Don Baker stole a chapter from Jerry West's book — the one on clutch playing — and turned near disaster into victory here last night. The 5-9 Tempe graduate scored the final six points for the South, giving the Rebels a 67-63 win over the North in the Annual All-Star cage clash. The expected rout by the heavily favored Southerners failed to materialize as Greg Wolf (East), Sam Johnson (Agua Fria) and Rob Babcock (Maryvale) kept the North squad in control for much of the second half. With 52 seconds left in the game, Baker sank a driving layup to put the South up by two, 65-63. He iced the game with 12 seconds remaining with a pair of charity shots. The contest was tied five times in the final period by the Tom Bennett (Westwood) and Don Harris (Buena) coached Southern team but not until Baker turned on his afterburners were they able to go ahead. The North went ahead 47-46, with 5:22 to go in the third period and it appeared for a while that Wolf, Babcock, Johnson and company would pull off an upset. But a tenacious defense by Eloy's Larry Shorty and Catalina's Bob Harbour kept the South well within sight. George Walls, the 6-9 giant from Sal- pointe, saw limited duty with the South, getting into foul trouble early and going out of the contese with five fouls at 3:09 of the final period. Baker's go-ahead layup was pulled off against 6-4 Steve Henderson of North. "I figured I could beat him even though he is taller because I am quicker," said Baker. "But I was disappointed in my game right up to the end. I wasn't relaxed and kept on trying to push my shots all the time. I think I was too busy looking at the people around me and not the basket." Early in the third period the South pulled to a seven point margin (41-34) but could not hold it as Wolf dropped in six consecutive points and Jim Irvine (West) added a 20-footer from the side to whittle the margin to three. "Shorty saved us, I mean to tell you," said Harris. "He went to the boards when we had to have it." Bennett commented that neither team could effectively control the defensive backboards and this held the game to such a low socre — the lowest in the past eight years. "Both teams would have scored better if we would have run more," he said. "But you can't do that without controlling the boards." "We knew it was going to be a tough game," added Baker. "But we knew we were going to win it from the very beginning." Westwood's Jim McClelland scored five of his eight points in the final minute of the first half to boost the South to a 37-33 edge at intermission. Wolf, who hit seven of 17 field goals, was the leading scorer for the game with 14 points. Baker and Johnson each had 12 with Mike Sanchez (Marana) and Irvine getting 10 each to round out the double figure scoring. As a team the South hit 26 of 78 field goals and 15 of 27 free throws. The North was 25 of 84 from the field and 13 of 32 from the line. The Rebel defense, headed by Shorty and Harbour, kept the Yanks from scoring in the final 3:18 of the game. Since the reorganization of the game eight years ago the South leads the series 5-3, having won the last three. Jack Wilson, veteran Benson basketball coach, was honored at halftime for his long service to the ASCA.
