The major league clubs will select in inverse order of their 1971 finish in the regular phase. The Padres, who had the worst record in the National League, will be followed by Cleveland, owner of the worst record in the American League. World champion Pittsburgh will pick 23rd and American League champion Baltimore will select last. Selections in the secondary phase were determined by a draw. The Los Angeles Dodgers will pick first, followed by CI e v e I a n d, the New York Mets, Texas and San Diego. The secondary phase covers free agents selected in previous drafts but not signed. Among the highly regarded prospects expected to be picked in the regular phase are pitchers Bob Grossman of the University of Maryland; Larry Christiansen of Marys-ville, Wash.; Dick Ruthven of Fresno State College and Scott MacGregor of El Segundo, Calif.

Penguins Issue 'Protected' List For MIL Draft MONTREAL - The Penguins last night issued their "protected" player list 15 skaters and two goal tenders who cannot be drafted by expansion teams Atlanta Flames and New York Islanders in the NHL draft today. Left unprotected were goalie Les Binkley; center Bob Lei-ter; left winger Val Fonteyne, Keith McCreary, and Eddie Shack; right wingers Ken Schinkcl, along with Jean-Guy Lagace and Yvon Labre of the Hershey Bears. The protected list: Goalies Jim Rutherford and Cam Newton. Defesmen Dave Burrows, Darryl Edestrand, Sheldon Kannegiesser, Dwayne Rupp, Bryan Watson, and Larry Bignell. Centers Syl Apps, Bryan Hextall, Ron Schoch, and Rich Kessell. Left wingers Greg Polis and Steve Cardwell. Right wingers Jean Pronovost, Nick Harbaruk and Al NcDonough. Full 4-Ply Nylon Cord Tire Soeclol to Ih Post-Gaiette MONTREAL - The Buffalo Sabres took the big gamble in the National Hockey League intra-league draft here yesterday, drafting the "retired" defenseman Tim Horton from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Horton, who had been acquired by the Penguins from the New York Rangers in the same draft last year, has been reported in Montreal papers as saying that he will no longer play. He said he would devote full time to his chain of doughnut shops in Canada. Horton had made the "no play" statement when drafted by the Penguins, but later changed his mind. His salary last season was "reporetdly over $100,000," said a Penguin spokesman. Horton suffered a broken ankle early in the season, then a shoulder separation when he returned, and played only 44 games with the Penguins. The Penguins accepted the $40,000 draft price from the Sabres after rejecting the offer of rightwinger Danny Lawson. "The Sabres," explained a Penguin spokesman, "paid $40,000 for the chance that Horton would play next season." Horton, 42, will face a persuasive man in Punch Imlach, Buffalo general manager. Horton, a 20-year NHL veteran, spent 18 seasons in Toronto, most of them under Imlach. In yesterday's intra-league draft, each club could take one , player from any other club in the league. Each, club could protect 18 players in its entire system. Horton was not on the Pens' protected list. Neither were Val Fonteyne and Bob L e i t e r, among others, the Pens' spokesman said. The Pens also announced the signing of four players. Greg Polis, their first-round pick ir. the 1970 amateur draft who came on to score 30 goals to tie with Jean Pronovost as leading team scorers last season, signed a two-year contract. Sheldon Kannegiesser signed a one-year pact. The Pens also signed two from their Hershey farm club center Rick Kessell to a one-year contract, and defenseman Larry Bignell to a two-year pact. Bignell, the spokesman said, is conisdered a strong possiblity to make the team next season. thing the rock concert featuring a fellow called Carlos Santana and the Boz Scags Group. Once Fergie Jenkins finished off the Padres, 3-1, the ball field belonged to the young, some very young. The bandstand was set up in right field. The price of admission for the doubleheader was $3.50 for a 16-year-old named Mike Cooper. "I paid the money so I decided to watch the baseball game, too," Mike Cooper said. "It was kinda of a bore. When does the baseball season end?" IJig League Loser The baseball season has never really begun in this town. This is San Diego's fourth year as a National League representative. The Padres hold the all-time league record for empty seats. 1 They have failed to draw- 700,000 fans in any one season. The baseball enthusiasm in this area is 120 miles up the freeway in Los Angeles. , San Diego is beautiful country. It just isn't baseball country. Buzzie Bavasi, a successful general manager in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, may be ready to take the franchise somewhere else. The trouble is Bavasi isn't the big money man in the SD operation. He owns a piece of what little action there is. The big money man is C. Arnhold Smith, a multimillionaire whose civic pride is matched only by his wealth. Smith is a big league thinker. He 'is on his way to becoming a record big league loser. But somehow he manages to laugh every time he has to make a bank withdrawal to help the Padres. Smith, among other things, owns a national sausage business. If he loses a few million dollars in baseball, he just makes more sausages' to make up the dollar difference.

They are capable of going weeks without winning when they play their average type baseball game. They have several good young players ... the kind who might interest a baseball fan who is willing to wait patiently for the Padres to become winners. Bavasi, who does the wheeling and dealing, does his job well. He' deals older players for younger players and he figures if he keeps getting younger players he is bound to form an improved team. There is one hitch, Buzzie, baby. Those young players might rather watch a rock concert than play baseball. ON 6.00-13 BLACKVALL DUE TO FACTORY OVERSTOCKS Hew1 prices on w.iO-14 Blackwail too!

There had been some rumors of bitterness because of the demands of the Penn State star. Harris mentioned that fact while participating in the three days of drills for draftees and free agents last weekend. He insisted that he would not be the first top draft pick of the Steelers who would fail to come to terms. After yesterday's meeting, Rooney said another confab will be held in the near future. Harris returned to University Park, where he faces another fortnight of classroom work. Coach Chuck Noll was pleased with the rookie practices but admitted several of the newcomers were found lacking in grid skills and will not be invited to training camp which starts on Wednesday July 12, at St. Vincent College near Latrobe. However, he is delaying action until he views movies taken of the practices.
