accepting two young pitchers and
an undisclosed amount of cash
from the Montreal Expos.

Atlanta in the National League

With Los Angeles. Hofheinz said
the the settlement was worked out
after Houston rejected Wednesday
another offer by Montreal to send
Clendenon to the Astros.
The controversy, that once had
Baseball Commissioner B o w i e
Kuhn demanding and receiving a
written apology from Hofheinz,
dated back to a Jan. 22 trade in
which Houston sent outfielder
Rusty Staub to Montreal in a
straight deal for first baseman
. Clendenon visited the Astro-
dome and indicated he was pleased
with the trade but last month
abruptly asserted that business
commitments had forced him to
decide to retire from baseball.
Houston claimed the retirement
nullified the deal. Staub added
complications by saying he would
not return to the Astros. Kuhn
eventually assigned Staub and
Clendenon to Montreal and Alou
to Houston and told the two clubs
to work out satisfactory compen-
sation for Houston.
Clendenon changed liis mind
again Wednesday and signed a
two-year contract with the Expos.
Clendenon's value to the Expos
will largely come from his prowess
at the plate. The former Pitts-
burgh Pirate star once hit .299
and should find the short fences
at :the stadium in Montreal well
within his range.'His return gives
the team an additional bonus on

"That would be inappropriate
to discuss," he said. "We are
satisfied with the final results but
not with the time it took."

been sold to Montreal and that
Houston's Oklahoma City farm
club had sold another righthander,
Leo Marentette, to Montreal's

"Despite all the ramifications

--- - -- -- Moeller plans to take advantage
of. it. He feels this year's Wolver-
ines are a team capable of ful-
filling his wish.
Moeller is confident for several
reasons. "We have a great deal of
returning personnel a n d they
should be able to continue on with
last season's record. This will not
be a rebuilding year because of
our experienced players."
One of the main goals of the
new staff is to return to the great
winning tradition of Michigan
football and "last season is an ex-
cellent foundation to begin with."
After viewing the films and the
first few days of practice, Moeller
thinks there are several good pros-
pects. "None of them, obviously,
is experienced in our type of de-
fensive setup, but t h e majority
have an asset to both :themselves
and the staff, in t h e i r playing
Moeller considers this type of
experience helpful to a player, but
it is not his so 1 e criterion for
judgment. "The abilities to move
and react quickly are the m o s t
necessary qualities for a defensive
player, especially for an end." He
places these before size, b u t he
adds, "The ideal player would
naturally have size and be ableuto
move. From looking at the pros-
pects, I'm hopeful that this year
we may possibly find a player with
both these qualities."
O t h e r characteristics which
Moeller looks for in his players are
toughness a n d aggressiveness.
However he combines the ability
to be a team player with all his
standards,. "If they think about
the team first and carry out their
responsibilities in that area, they'll
be an asset to the team and a good
Moeller said that the first prac-
tice sessions have gone well and
he was pleased with the good at-
titude on the field. "I've also seen

is to overcome t h e experienced
He related that the leading
problem for the new staff is that
more time must be devoted to the
teacher-learning process t h a n a
returning staff is faced with.

The established players with
their already known skills will
provide a good base for this pro-
cess. With the eager sophomores
Moeller has coming up that are as
yet untried, the presence of the
material can be likened to pieces

Hopefully the talent pieces will
fit into the jigsaw puzzle of plays
he has prepared for them. When
