PITCHING POSES PROBLEM
Bengals attempt to roar without McLain
By The Associated Press
LAKELAND, Fla.-Mayo Smith
must know he faces a near-im-
possible task of trying to win a
pennant at .Detroit without Denny
McLain but he refused to admit it.
"With or without McLain," said
Smith, "we've got to goabout the
job of trying to win this thing.
It's a closed issue as far as my
ball players are concerned. From
here on in, it's up to Bowie Kuhn."
McLain, of course, is sweating
out an indefinite suspension for
what commissioner Kuhn called,
"involvement in 1967 bookmaking
activities and his associations at
The 31-game winning sensation
of the 1968 pennant team and 24-
9 performer on last year's second-
place team Is waiting it out at his
McLain's troubles were com-
pounded yesterday when a $50,000
damage suit was filed against him
in Kalamazoo County court.
The suit, among other things,
accuses McLain of keeping "for his
separate use" some of the rev-
enues of the company and of not
coming up with $20,000 in capital,
which, the plaintiffs charge, he
had promised to do to finance the
Denny hopes for a short sus-
pension but must realize that it
may last all year or maybe for-
Commenting on McLain's sus-
pension, manager Smith com-
mented, "Naturally, this makes our
job that much tougher.
"I told the' players and I will
tell you that we still have the
personnel to win."
HOWEVER, the personnel of
the Tigers, including McLain and
his 24 victories was only good
enough to finish second in the
American League East last season,
19 lengths behind the pennant-
winning Baltimore Orioles.
Smith's main concern is to try
to piece together a pitching staff
that can recover some, if not all,
of the 24 games lost by McLain's
Mickey Lolich, the pitching star
of the 1968 World Series triumph,
moves front and center as the big
man of, the staff.
Mike Kilkenny, a surprising late
season bloomer who spent the first
four onths in the bullpen, moves
into the reguar rotation with Earl
Wilson, Joe Niekro and possibly
The need for starters may leave
the bullpen to Tom Timmerman,
side-arming Fred Lasher and Bob
If the pitching does shape up-
and that appears to be a tall or-
der-the Tigers do have the po-
tential to cause trouble.
DICK'McAULIFFE missed half
the 1969 season due to surgery on
his right knee but manager Smith
expects him" to be back at 100 per
cent of his old self and ready to
handle second base again.
Norm Cash, 35, will get some
relief at first from Al Kaline, also
35, who will shuttle between the
outfield and the infield.
Shortstop position will be held
down by either Cesar Gutierrez or
Tom Tresh while Don Wert and
Dalton Jones are fighting it out
for the third base spot.
Four men will devide the out-
field work. Horton will be in left
and Kaline in right. Mickey Stan-
ley, a shortstop last spring, is back
in center. Northrup, recovered
from knee surgery, will play
either center or right.
CATCHER Bill Freehan's home
run and RBI production fell off
last year and he must come back
strong if the Tigers are to be at
threat. Jim Price will catch when
Freehan rests, which is seldom.
In the National League, there
was some good news and some bad
news for St. Louis Cardinal fans.
Richie Allen, baseball's bad boy,
finaly signed his 1970 contract for
an estimated $85,000.
"I'm no angel," Allen com-
But he added, "I don't think
I'm as bad as I'm made out to

tention doing those things in St.
Louis that I did in Philadelphia."
Meanwhile, St. Louis president
Gussie Busch blasted pitcher Steve
Carlton who is holding out for
"I don't care if he ever pitches
another ball for us again," the
angry Busch told a news confer-
ence after he and General Man-
ager Bing Devine met with Carl-

PITTSBURGH (/P) - The ABA,
continuing their fight for recogni-
tion by the NBA grabbed another
top pro prospect from the college
ranks yesterday. Mike. Maloy of
"Davidson formally signed a three-
year contract worth about $150,000
with the Pittsburgh Pipers of the
American Basketball Association.
The 6-f oot-7 second team All-
American signed with the Pipers
in the presence of ABA commis-
sioner Jack Dolph.
"I didn't have time to wait," the
20-year-old Maloy said. "T h e
merger talks were a big factor, but
so was the money. I'm satisfied."
Maloy, the second major college
.-star to sign with the ABA this
year, said he was never contact-
ed by a National Basketball As-
"I really didn't feel I was pres-
sured except that I didn't want
to lose money."
"This can't do anything but help'
a merger," said Dolph. "There
will be more signings - probably
"We're paying boys more now
than they're going to get later,"
Dolph added. But he wouldn't
comment on reports that merger
agreement between the two rival
leagues could be consummated
"The sincerity of both parties to
merger fs now' a fact," Dolph said.
Maloy was the Pipers' f i r s t
choice in a secret draft last year.
Last week Rick Mount of Purdue
argued to a multi-year contract
with the" Indiana Pacers for an
estimated $500,000 to $750,000. It
was learned that both Mount and
Maloy's pacts include large life in-

The 6-foot-7 center had been a
standout throughout his college
career. As a freshman, when the
Wildcats had the only unbeaten
team in their history, he had a
21.9 scoring average. As a sopho-
more, when Davidson was ranked
eighth in the nation by T h e
Associated Press, Maloy had a
15.6 average. As a junior he jump-
ed to a 24.6 average, and this sea-
son when Davidson was ranked
10th, he had a 17.4 average.
"I didn't come up here to tear
this league up in the scoring de-
partment," Maloy said. "But once
in a while I might," he smiled.
Maloy was named to the All-
Southern Conference team the last
three years, was the Charlotte In-
vitational Tournament Most Val-
uable Player for the last three
years and was chosen for the 1968
Olympic trials, but did not com-

it is believed he may soon sign,
