McLain, Spinks Provide
Two-Fisted Double Header

II

t was 1968 . . . the base-
ball world was being
rocked with excitement
as a young man lifted his left
leg high on the mound, reared
back and fired strike after
strike at whiffing, puzzled
batters who went back to the
dugout scratching their heads
. . . Denny McLain was king
of the hill that year . . .
reaching the super magic 30
victories in a season as he led
the Detroit Tigers to a pen-
nant and world's champion-
ship with 31 wins.
Ten years later, a Detroit
boxer whose flailing fists,
punishing body blows and in-
coming aggressiveness as-
tounded the world of fisticuffs
as he defeated Muhammed
Ali to become heavyweight
champion of the world .. .
Leon Spinks had done what
no man before him could do
. . . wrest the championship
belt from Ali's waist.
Both had made_
history in two separat sports
and eras . . . Thday, they are
working together on the same
team at Jovans inside Jac-
ques, Telegraph between 12
and 13 Mile in Bingham
Farms . . . Denny is behind
the keyboard with syn-
thesizer and digital drums,
Monday thru Friday, 5 p.m. to
10 p.m. . . . and Leon Spinks
is evening bartender, with
gray tux replacing the ring
trunks.
It's a different Denny
McLain as he goes about his
work . . . The meticulous con-
centration he once possessed
while leering in at opposing
batters is now devoted to his
music during working hours
at Jovans . . . Denny's trials
and tribulations behind him
since those baseball glory
years, he is making another
life for himself . . . living here
during the week and going to
Ft. Wayne, Indiana, where he
now resides, on Saturdays and
Sundays.
Leon Spinks found his
niche after leaving the ring
with going to bartending
school . . . He loves to con-
verse with customers and is
noted for being able to pour a
good drink of cocktail.
Jovans lounge restaurant
inside the sumptuous Jac-
ques, seats 135 . . . and
besides Denny and Leon,
boasts personable and effi-
cient waitpersons like Luan-
na O'Neil, who brought me a
delicious salmon steak and

classical French cuisine .. .
