1968 Detroit Tigers: Pennants
wnhere pennants are due.
By DIANA ROMANCHUK
and HOWARD KOHN
It all started innocently enough. Gates Brown
popped a pinch-hit homer in the bottom of the
ninth to give the Tigers their first win on the
second day of the season.
Detroit people tell each other every spring
that this year the Tigers are going to win. They
have been repeating the ritual for 23 years. Only
the most moronic of them ever believe it.
4 "After all," they say, "Look how close they
came last year." And verily, last year was the
first time the Tigers had even come close enough
to blow a pennant.
Besides, as any good Chinese knows, this is the
Year of the Tiger.
And the Tigers' people invested in them, buy-
ing "Sock It to 'Em, Tigers" and "Denny McLain
for President" stickers from a quick-minded
wizard who lived to tell his tale.
The unbelievable thing, of course, was not that
the Tigers won but the way they won.
The Tigers trail the Orioles 5-3 with two on
and two out in the ninth. Tom Matchik (I mean
really), with two strikes on him drills a home
The Tigers lead the Red Sox 8-0. The Red Sox
tie the score 8-8. The Tigers lead the Red Sox
9-8. The Red Sox tie 9-9. The Tigers win 10-9 on
Bill Freehan's 11th-inning homer.
Gates Brown hits a 14th-inning home run in
the first game of a doubleheader, and caps a four-
run ninth-inning rally with an RBI-single in the

screaming from the stands for years was mate-
rializing . . . a bullpen (though the name of
the savior changed bi-weekly), twp-out RBI
singles instead of strikeouts, and an incredible
number of clutch plays.f
That penny McLain would win 30 games was
as much incidental as it was a product of what the
Tigers were doing.
Willie Horton singled in the ninth for the
deciding run on McLain's 30th,
And Tuesday night, the Tigers won their 37th
game in which they were tied or trailed in the
seventh inning or later. Don Wert's single in the
ninth iced it.
And the hopes and fears of all the years were
loosed in the overflow of the stands and the
raising of the American League pennant atop the
In the end the Tigers won the pennant not so
much because they scored runs but because there
were runs to be scored.

Cards, hurried down to the Red-

year-old Washburn who was. just
two years old when a Card pitcher

"This was probably my, best
game ever," the Kirkland, Wash.,
right-hander said. "I got around

Roarke rips Intramural Advisory Bo
By JIM FORRESTER
Activity among campus frater-
nities seems to be on the upswing
this year. Bob Hope and IFC Com-
mentary are efforts not usualy at-
tempted by the local Greeks. But
the move to .activate the fraterni-
ties may become most effective in
the area of athletics.
The newly appointed Intramural
Advisory Board, however, could be
a thorn in the side of IFC. The
fraternities have no representa-
tive on the. Board and feel it is
their right and that they are most.
qualified for such representation.
"Much of the IM activity takes
place in fraternities," says I F C
president 'Bob Roarke, "and the
representation should be where
the action is."
Roarke attacks the 2-2 male-fe-
male. split on the Board as over
representing the fairer sex. "The
men make for at least 75 per cent
of the IM activity, if not more,
Most of the IFC bitterness emi-
nates from the appointment to the
board of Daily sports staff mem-
ber Robin Wright. A lack of IM
'activity at the Daily and a sup-
posed lack of qualifications in
Miss Wright give rise to most of
this angry feeling.
Roarke went on to say that he
felt the Board would be ineffec-
tive j anyway.1 He cited what he
feels to be a tendency among most
committees "to do more talking
When asked about the recent
action of the Board to initiate re-.
pairs on Palmer field and pur-
chase portable sports facilities,,
Roarke said, "The actions of the
Board had been essentially decid-
, ed upon before the Board ever
met. Don Canham set what he felt
was needed to be done in front
of. the Board and they voted it
Roarke's solution is for IFC to
run as much of its- own IM pro-
giam as possible. IFC plans to
hold championships in A and 1
football, tennis and possibly golf
in the fall term. A bridge tour-
nament in conjunction with Pan-
hellenic' is also in the works.
A more promising aspect of the.
fraternity athletic program,
though, is -the organization and
conduct of football and basket-
ball for underprivileged children
of Ann Arbor.
In connection with1Community
Services, each fraternity is to
sponsor, equip and coach a team.
It is hoped that public school fa-
will be made available for
"We want to give ou men a
chance to see and understand how,
the other half lives," said Roarke.
"We want to give the fraternities
a chance to really help these peo-
The upswing in activity among
the fraternities leads Roarke to
comment that, "fraternities a r e
coming back strong at Michigan."
The work with local youth seems
to support this statement but the
attack upon the IM Advisory
Board, and the plan to work out-
side of it, may just retard t h e
effort of the fraternities to regain
the respect they had on this
campus so many years ago.
PHILADELPHIA (RP) - Villan-
ova track coach Jim Elliott said
he is filing a protest with the U.S.
Track and Field Committee over
the exclusion of miler Dave Pat-
rick from the Olympic team.
Patrick finished fourth in the
1,500 meters race at the final
Olympic track trials. Only the
first three finishers were given
But, said Elliott, "The men's
track and field committee was ir-
revocably committed to placing on
the team the winner of the Los
Angeles trials by statements made
to the press, athletes and coaches
at that time."
The 22-year-old Patrick won
that race in late June.

Today Gridde Pickings decided to interview Sewanee Coach
Shirley Majors to get the story on their game with Millsaps.
The phone company, however, had different ideas.
To call out of a University phone you must dial 9 and then your
number. This I did five times before local information finally
answered. The other four times an all nasal lady recording answered
telling me I had dialed wrong. Once, well maybe, but four times?
From local nose people I got the area code of Sewanee, Ten-
nessee. (It's 615 in, case you ever want to call there.)
From Sewanee info'rmation I was given the number of University
of the South information, which, when dialed, answered "Police!"
By this time I.didn't care if I ever reached whoever it was I was
calling in the first place.r
But if I had reached this person he most certainly would have
entered Gridde Pickings in order to win a free Cottage Inn pizza with
anything he wanted on it. Even if you aren't whoever I was calling,
you may win this culinary delight if you get your Gridde Pickings
entry to the Daily before 8 P.M. Friday Sept. 20, 1968.
