Kuhn jolts Tribe over bonuses-
in pacts with McDowell, others

Freehan slips in All-Star vote
NEW YORK (P) - Catcher Ray Fosse of Cleveland closed ground
on Detroit's Bill Freehan and write-in votes moved Kansas City's Cookie "
Rojas up a notch in the second base contest during the second week of
American League All-Star balloting.
Freehan, the starting AL catcher for the past five years, leads Fosse
by just 610 votes, with a total of 64,518. Rojas, not listed in the ballot,
has received 18,869 write-in votes to move up from sixth to fifth among
the scond baseman.

NEW YORK (P) - Baseball
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn fined
the Cleveland Indians $5000 yes-
terday and invalidated "perfor-
mance bonus understandings"
between the American League
club and four of its players.
Kuhn said his investigation
showed that arrangements called
for the Indians to pay varying
amounts to first baseman Ken
Harrelson, pitcher Sam McDow-
ell, third baseman Graig Nettles
and outfielder Vada Pinson,
based on "specified levels of
performance."
The club was fined "for its
part in the arrangements" which,
Kuhn said, "violated longstand-
ing prohibitions in major league
rules against bonuses for play-

ing, pitching and batting skill."
In Cleveland, Indians Presi-
dent Gabe Paul, commenting on
Kuhn's action, said:
"The decision of the commis-
sioner has been made and there
is nothing we can do about it."
Speed freaks, see Page 7
Kuhn said the players were not
fined because he felt that taking
away their potenttal bonuses wais
enough.
He indicated that the arrange-
ments between the players and
the Indians "were also invalid be-
cause they were set forth in
separate written agreements
rather than in the players' con-
tracts."
