RIGNEY ROPED
Twins ick Quilici

MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL,
() - Youthful Frank Quilici
was named manager of the Min-
nesota Twins Thursday, replac-
ing Bill Rigney who was fired
by President Calvin Griffith.
The most important reason
foi making this change was
that the players weren't react-
ing on the field," Griffith told
a hastily called news confer-
ence. "Too many were too non-
chalant.
The Tw inssstio led the
America I League's West Divi-
sion early in the season, were
in third place with a 36-34
record, 9 g, ames behind first
place Oakland.
Griffith said he feared anoth-
er fifth place finish for the
Tw'ins. whcorturned, from a
road trip Wednesday after win-
ning only once in six games.
"I'm just hoping Frank will
have a little better luck the sec-
and half of the season," Griffith
said.
"I think as far as I'm con-
cerned we can have the Twins
making a little luck," said Quil-
ici, in his second year as a
Twins coach. "Something I've
learned from a lot of guys, in-
cluding Calvin and our friend
Billy Martin is that you've got
to have a lot of pride. Weve
got to get it all together."
Martin, current Detroit man-
ager, piloted the Twins to the

Rigney was not present at the
news conference. Earlier he
had told a newsman he had
spent 90 minutes with Griffith
where he learned of his dis-
missal as manager.
"CALVIN SAID we are not
selling any tickets, and he
wants to go with a local man,"
Rigney said. He then went to
the clubhouse to tell the play-
ers, who had gathered for a
practice session on Thursday.-
an open date.
The 33-year-old Quilici has
been withc the Twrins argans-
ization for 11 years. He was a
utility infielderti th the Twsc

games and hcad a lifetimec bat-
ting average o1 214. I chis best
season, 1968, he hit .245 ini 97
games.
Griffith said he had decided
definitely to make the change
only Thursday morning.
Youknow Iyeh ad a couple
sleepless nights." Griffith told
newsmen. "I decided on my
way to work that we couldn't
stand another year like last
year." The Twins finished fifth
in 1971, drawing 940,858 fans,
the first time in the 11-year his-
tory of the club that less than
