COMMISSIONER OPENS CAMPS
Kuhn brea ks lockout
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Baseball Com-
missioner Bowie Kuhn ordered
major league spring training
camps to "get underway without
further delay" after the players
union's executive board declined
to take action yesterday on the
owners' "final" contract offer.
The executive board of the
Major League Baseball Players
Association, meeting in Tampa,
'Fla., had also urged the open-
ing of spring training camps
and the reopening of stalemated
negotiations with the owners.
"Because I think it is now
vital that spring training get
underway without further de-
lay, I have directed that all
camps be opened at the ear-
possible time," Kuhn
"While nobody is more dis-
appointed than I that we do not
have solid progress to a final
agreement, the fans are the
most important people around
and their interests now become
paramount. Opening the camps
and starting the season on time
is what they want."
Kuhn had said last week, un-
der his authority as guardian of
the best interest of baseball,
that he could step in and order
the camps opened. At that time,
he said he would intervene if
there was no progress.
The owners had announced
on Feb. 23 that the camps
would be closed indefinitely un-
til there was a new labor con-
tract or sufficient progress to-
ward reaching a new agree-
A spokesman for the com-
missioner said Kuhn had pret-
ty much made up his mind
before Miller's announcement
yesterday that the union's
executive board would decline
to take action on the owners'
areas, the spokesman felt the
camps, in one form or another,
could be opened on Thursday;
John Gaherin, chief bargain-
ing agent for the owners, has
been asked to advise the clubsj
yesterday as to the procedures'
to be followed in inviting the
players to camp.
In Tampa, the 24 elected rep-
resentatives of the major league
clubs also asked that the Fed-
eral Mediation and Conciliation
Service be brought into the ne-
The resolution strongly urged
owners to open spring training
camps, which have been closed
during the negotiating process.

Runner near death
Indiana University track star Steve Heidenreich was fighting
for his life yesterday after being struck by a car while working
out near campus late Tuesday night.
Heidenreich, described as the best mile runner in the Big Ten
Conference, was critically injured and underwent four hours of
brain surgery yesterday. The driver of the car fled after the
accident, police said.
Police said a motorist found the runner shortly before
midnight lying next to a road on the northwest edge of
Bloomington. His jaw was broken and doctors said he suf-
fered a severe skull fracture.
Heidenreich, 22, was the first Big Ten runner to clock a four-
minute indoor mile, a clocking of 4:00.0 in Chicago earlier this
year. He was also the first IU runner to break the four-minute
barrier outdoors, running a 3:58.4 last spring.
Heidenreich, a senior majoring in business, is a native of
Watertown, S.D., and co-captain of the track team.
King to go pro?
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - If the price is right, Bernard King's
career as a Tennessee basketball player may be over.
King, 6-foot-7 sophomore from New York said yesterday he
will apply for a hardship waiver, making himself eligible.for the
National Basketball Association draft.
"I definitely will consider turning pro if things are to my
liking," said King, indicating that the bonus for signing would
have to be a good one.
King won The Associated Press award as the top player in
the Southeastern Conference this season. He was a unanimous
choice for the All-SEC team and led the conference In regular
season scoring with a 25.2-point average and in rebounding with
13 a game.
He said that before he signs a pro contract he would like a
shot at the U.S. Olympic Team.
Both King and teammate Ernie Grunfeld, also a unanimous
all-SEC pick, have been invited to the Olympic tryouts. King said
that if he makes the Olympic squad, he would postpone signing
a pro contract.
"My main concern right now is to get ready for the Olym-
pics," King said. "A chance to play in the Olympics comes once
in a lifetime. That's something money can't buy."
King made it clear that just because he is applying for
hardship "doesn't mean that I will turn pro. It will depend on
many things-including money."
Scouts say King has a good chance of making it in the
Another SEC standout, Georgia's Jack Dorsey, already has
said he will apply for the hardship waiver. Like King, Dorsey is
a sophomore and made the all-SEC team.
INDIANAPOLIS - Five basketball - mad attorneys won a
court order yesterday forcing the NCAA to telecast Thursday's
Mideast Regional semi-final game between top-ranked Indiana
and No. 6 Alabama.
Marion County Superior Court Judge Michael T. Dugan
signed a temporary restraining order to prevent the NCAA
blackout of the game in central Indiana. The NCAA had said
Tuesday the game would not be telecast in Indianapolis or
Bloomington because the Midwest Regional game in Louisville
had not been sold out.
In the Midwest Regionals, Missouri plays Texas Tech
and Notre Dame plays Michigan.
The NCAA's rule specifies that a game cannot be telecast
within 120 miles of a tournament site if the game is not sold
out 48 hours beforehand.
The order was sought by the Indianapolis law firm of Buck,
Berry, Landau, Breunig and Quinn, all IU grads, as is Dugan.
The petition was filed on behalf of basketball fans in Marion
Country and the surrounding area.
