10 · Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, Aug. 23, 1974 FAYETTEVILLC, ARKANSAS Thinks He Can Break SB Mark Bench Says Brock "Unbelievable" CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Bench thinks Lou Brock can do «. "I honestly didn't think Maury Wills' record would be broken, but Lou's made a believer out of me," said the Cincinnati Reds All-Star catcher. "It will be truly unbelievable II he does it," tribute of Broc! said Bench in 's ibid to erase .the all-lime season stolen-base .-record. Brock is closing record that many of baseball's old guard said would remain out of reach Tor years. The St. Louis Cardinal star has BG sleals, well ahead of Wills' record pace in 1962. He needs IB steals in the remain- Ing 37 games mark. to crack the "I'm glad he's out of our' hair," said Bench. The Reds ind Cards do not meet again this regular season. Bench won the lasl outing in ,heir duel of hare-and-hounds- manship. "I got him the last two times we played St. Louis." recalled Bench. "But all told, he's got more on me than I've got on him," said the strong-armed Oklahoman. considered by many as one of the best defen- sivie catchers in history. "He's a true artist in every sense of the word," said Bench. "He's not the fastest guy in baseball, yet he developed his thing and does the most with 1." Brock leads his closest rival, U.S. Open Net Event Begins Next Week Joe Morgan of the Hods, by 35 sleals. I don't see anything slopping Lou. He's proven he's durable. The guy is 35 years old. But I don't know what's going through his mind right now. "There's a combination ol things involved. First, the Cards are in a lough pennant race, so he has to be thinking team first. Second, he has to avoid any slump. He has to get on base to sleal." said Bench. "His strength? He's so dar ing. And he's got his timing down to 'a split-second. Any time he gets that pitcher to give him a step, he's gone. Sometimes it will be in a pitcher's high kick, or some thing in the delivery," added Bench. The Fayetlcville Bulldogs vorked out under the lights [gain Thursday .night, and student assistant Rick McWhorler gave indication of what kind of practice it was.

(TIMESphoto hy K e n Good) Chicago Fire Singes Wheels 35-23 Before TV Audience YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) --' Coach Dan Boisture s a y s his Detroit Wheels "need stability and some kind of security." They also need a victory. Thursday night the Chicago 'ire saw to it thai that didn't happen for the seventh consecutive time. The Fire took advantage of he absence of star Wheels quarterback Bubba Wyche and ieat Detroit 35-23 before a national television audience but only 10,300 patrons at Rynearson Stadium here, some 35 mile miles from Detroit. The triumph was the sixth for Chicago against one loss. "This is as good a game as we've played this season," said Chicago Coach J i m Spavital, who got a superb quarterback Virgil _ame from barter and a balanced running attack from Cyril Pinder and Mark Kellar. A 90-yard kickoff return for i second-quarter touchdown by Walter Rhodes didn't hurt, ei ther. In fact, it turned a 14-8 Chicago lead into a rout and only a pair of fourth-quarter Detroit touchdowns made the score look respectable. The Wheels, plagued by skimpy crowds, a lack of money and consequently lack of top players, have been rumored headed somewhere else--perhaps Char lotee.'N.C. "I have a feeling something will happen very shortly," Bois ture said. Detroit was out of it early, perhaps as early as. four hours before the start of the game. That's when Wyche, second- leading passer in the WFL, suffered from an inflammation of a pulled back muscle and was put on the injured list.
