Major League Leaders
WASHINGTON (M' - Profes-
,ional sports leagues suffered a
severe setback yesterday when
the Senate Judiciary Commit-
tee killed legislation to black
out mast distant sports on cable
At issue was the right of a
cable TV system, a form of pay
television, to bring in a "dis-
:ant signal" of a sports event
without the approval of the par-
ticipating teams or leagues.
The controversial Section 111
of an 85-page copyright revision
bill would have prevented t h e
The cable TV industry cam-
paigned vigorously against it.
In the closed-door vote on the
section, Sen. Philip H. Hart, D-
Mich., was the only one of
the 16-member committee in
favor of retaining -the section.
He also was the only member to
vote in favor of a compromise
amendment he introduced.
It would have allowed cable
television systems to carry na-
tionally-televised events such as
the World Series and All-Star
games but not regional tele-
casts. It also would have pro-
tected major and minor league

NEW YORK - Frank Robinson, the superstar outfielder of
the California -Angels, and Manager Bobby Winkles admitted
yesterday they have been in a silent war - and the possibility
grew that Robinson might be traded this week.
With baseball's trading deadline on Saturday, there were re-
ports that the 38-year-old Robinson, the only player to win the
Most Valuable Player award in both the American and National
Leagues, might be headed fo rthe Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox, leading the American League East, were
known to be interested in obtaining the slugging right-handed
hitter, believing his presence at Fenway Park, with its close left
field wall, would bea major asset in their drive for a pennant.
Padres tough to beat
SAN DIEGO - Remember the glory year of the Detroit
Tigers, 1968, when it seemed that every victory was eked out
in the late innings with heroes as easy to find as beer in Cleve-
land last week.
Winning the close ones and coming from behind has become
the trademark of one ofnthe worst teams in major league history,
the San Diego Padres. The Padres, possessors of a 24-39 record
are 14-4 in one-run decisions and have come from behind in the
late innings 14 times to win.
Monday night, the Padres trailed Pittsburgh 8-0 going into the
last of the eighth inning, but four in the eighth and five in the
ninth off the inept Pirate pitchers gave San Diego a 9-8 win.
Horace Clarke, of all people, knocked home the winner.
More trade rumors
NEW YORK-The New York Mets hope to land slugger Dave
Kingman from the San Francisco Giants before Saturday's major
league baseball trading deadline.
"What I need is a right-handed power hitter who can hit 25
home runs," Manager Yogi Berra said.
