NG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The
York Yankees' dramatic drive to
World Championship was one of
ball's most spectacular
backs, but even that pales in com-
on to Manager Bob Lemon's per-
reversal of fortunes this year..

I find myself managing in the World
Series," said Lemon, named American
League Manager of the Year yesterday
by the Associated Press.
"I feel like a man who's come from
the lowest desert to the highest moun-.
taintop. I just 'can't imagine all this
happening to me."
LEMON SAID following the Yankees'
six-game victory over the Los Angeles
Dodgers in the World Series that it
would take a while for him to fully
-realize what's happened.
He still hasn't. .
"I'm trying to get some rest, but
nothing's really hit me," he said. "I'm
not down to earth yet."

WHEN LEMON took over the'
Yankees, they trailed Boston by 10/2
games in the American League East.
Under his guidance, they caught the
Red Sox, then finally won the
harrowing one-game showdown when
the two clubs finished the season tied.
The Yankees went on to beat Kansas
City in the AL playoffs. Then, achieving
a feat unprecedented in the 75-year
history of the World Series, they boun-
ced back to win four straight games af-
ter losing the first two.
Lemon, a quiet, soft-spoken man in
marked contrast to the fiery Martin,
seemed just the balm needed by the
frequently bickering and troubled
"THE ONLY things that concerns me
is what the players do between the
white lines," said Lemon, a Hall of
Fame pitcher who won 20 games seven
times during a 13-year career with the
Cleveland Indians.
"This club will take advice. The
players do what it takes to help the

team win ball games, and that's what's
"It seems that players today in
general express themselves more, talk
more freely to the media, and
especially on this Yankee club. Dif-
ferent managers express themselves in
different ways, too," Lemon continued.
"I guess it has a lot to do with how you
were brought up, whether you're a sort
of quiet person or whether you talk a
lot. I do know you can't force your per-
sonality on somebody else, whether
you're a player or a manger. Nothing
bad has happened to me in that regard
so far, knock on wood."
LEMON SPURNS rah-rah leadership
and said he had just one formal meeting
with the Yankees, that one during his
first day on the job.
"We had a five-minute meeting and I
just told them that as far as I was con-
cerned, the season started that day and
to go out there and win some games and
have some fun."
They did.

DALLAS-First baseman Mike Hargrove was traded yesterday from
the Texas Rangers to the San Diego Padres in a deal involving outfielder
Oscar Gamble and three other players plus cash.
Hargrove, infielder Kurt Bevacqua and catcher Bill Fahey were dealt to
the Padres for outfielder Oscar Gamble, catcher Dave Roberts and an
estimated $300,000.
"They probably did a good thing to trade me to the other league,"
Hargrove said. "If they hadn't, I'd come in with a crowbar, a stick of
dynamite and a shotgun and would have eaten first base if I had to to help
beat Texas."
Hargrove, who batted .251 with seven home runs and 40 runs batted in
this season, became the latest bargaining chip in the wheeling-dealings of
team owner Brad Corbett.
Gamble, contacted in Montgomery, Ala., said he welcomed the trade
because he hits "better in the American League-because I played more
when I was over there."
"I knew it would come some day, but I'm surprised and hurt it happened
this soon," said Hargrove, the American League Rookie of the Year in 1974.
Hargrove got the official word Tuesday night during a dinner with Cor-
bett, reported the Dallas News and Dallas Times Herald.
Former Texas Rangers manager Bill Hunter had described Hargrove as
"the kind of guy you like to build a team around."
But Hunter-was axed with just one game left in the season, and now the
player he prized has been traded in an apparent economy move by the
Ranger management.
"I've had some time to get over the shock and I'm looking forward to
going there," said Hargrove. "But I didn't want to leave. I don't understand
it other than maybe the economics involved."
The Hargrove swap is the second trade for the Rangers since the end of
the season. Earlier, they dealt slugger Bobby Bonds and pitcher Len Parker
Cleveland for pitcher Jim Kern and infielder Larvell Blanks.
Lafleur staying with Habs
TORONTO-Jerry Petrie, agent for Montreal Canadiens' hockey star
Guy Lefleur, said last night Lafleur is not planning to leave the club because
of a salary dispute.
In an earlier report published in a Montreal newspaper, Petrie had been
quoted as saying that he had issued an ultimatum to the Canadiens: if
Lafleur did not have a new agreement by Wednesday night, he would sit out
future games.
Lafleur dressed and was on the ice for last night's game after Petrie told
reporters the 27-year-old right winger will remain with Montreal "until a
satisfactory conclusion is realized.''
