boos

or cheers

greet Denny?

DETROIT (P)-Denny McLain ends his
three-month exile today, and the main
thought on his mind is: "What kind of
reaction will there be in the park when
my name is announced."
McLain, who has been roundly booed
and cheered by Detroit fans during his
career, admitted he was apprehensive
about their response when he takes the
mound against the New York Yankees
tonight.
"I'm throwing good, my control is
sharp. There will be no problem unless
I'm so nervous I can't see home plate,"
said McLain at his Lakeland, Fla., retreat
where he has remained since being sus-
pended in April by baseball commissioner
Bowie Kuhn for what Kuhn said was
McLain's association with gamblers in
Flint, Mich., in 1967.
McLain also faces some pregame ten-
sion as he suits up with his teammates
for the first time this season.
"I never walked to the mound in my
life not expecting to win," McLain said.
"This time I especially want to do a good
job. I don't want to embarrass anyone."

He told George Kell, former Detroit
Tiger third baseman who is now a tele-
vision announcer for the Tigers, that "I
wonder what the crowd's reaction will be
toward me."
Kell said he told McLain he thought it
would be good and that 80 per cent or
more of the expected 50,000-member
audience would be cheering him on.
"Do you really think so? Boy, I hope
you're right," responded the 26-year-old
McLain, who won or tied for the Cy
Young Award as the American League's
top pitcher the last two years.
McLain, who won 55 games in the last
two seasons, has been booed in the past
by Detroiters, especially after his com-
ments criticizing the local fans were
published.
But none could be heard in 1968 on the
day he won his 31st game of the season
to achieve a modern pitching feat as he
led Detroit to the American League pen-
nant. Detroit then went on to win the
World Series.
He has said he's a professional athlete
and the boos don't affect him personally.

but he worries about the way they affect
his wife, Sharyn, and their children.
They plan to be in the stadium.
Tiger manager Mayo Smith said the
McLain may get 25 or more starts by
the end of the season and could possibly
pitch more often than every four days,
"if he feels ok."
Based on his winning percentage of
previous years, McLain could win 15
games for Detroit, which has 56 per cent
of its season left.
The Tigers have been struggling in
third place in the East Division of the
American League most of the season.
After last night's action, Detroit was
seven games behind Baltimore and four
behind New York.
The Tigers have a big series coming up
with Baltimore over the Fourth of July
weekend.
Sharyn McLain, daughter of baseball
Hall-of-Famer Lou Boudreau, said that
she and her husband and their children
planned to fly from Florida to Detroit
this morning.
McLain's been keeping most of his
plans secret.

WITH THE WHOLE WORLD watching this evening Dennis
Dale ("The Menace") McLain will return to the baseball
ways when he toes the slab against the surprising New York
Yankees. The people watching the closest, however, will be Mc-
Lain's loyal fans in the Motor City, who will be hoping that
the righthander's strong arm can carry the Tigers to a repeat
performance of the wonder year 1968.
It could happen. Back in April when I was previewing the
coming baseball season in the American League's Eastern Div-
ision, I opined that the Tigers could replace Baltimore in the
American League's Championship Series if they could stay with-
in five games of the Orioles. Before last night's action the
Tigers were seven games out of first, but there are some miti-
gating factors which continue to make Detroit a viable pennant
contender.
First, between Detroit, and Baltimore are McLain's oppon-
ents tonight the New York Yankees, who are attempting to
follow in the footsteps of the Jets, Mets, and Knicks largely on
the strength of a good bullpen, a couple of stalwart pitchers
and the hitting of Danny Cater, Roy White and Bobby Murcer.
Although the Yankees' surprise appearance in the race tends to
make the Tigers appear further out of first (they're third now
instead of second at this time last year), their presence prob-
is a boon to the Tigers, since it keeps the pennant race alive in
the minds of the players.
LAST YEAR EVERYONE had conceded the division title
to the Orioles by this time including half the Tiger players, even
if they refused to admit it to others. This year there's increased
skepticism in Baltimore's ability to capture the flag, and be-
lieving you can win is half the battle-just ask Leo Durocher or
any of his Cubs whether they expect to win their next game
against the Mets.
The second factor to take into account is that the Tigers
have been making up ground for the last few weeks rather than
falling back into the pack. Thus it can be assumed that the
Tigers have been gaining momentum, rather than losing it as
the Orioles apparently have.
Finally McLain's mere appearance on the team is bound to
spell improvement for Detroit's pitching which has proved to
be the achilles' heal of the team so far this season. There is no
denying McLain possesses a talented right arm although the
same may not be said forhis head and even if he should be
bombed tonight, within a couple of starts he should be able to
-reassume his position as the premier righthander in the Ameri-
can League.
McLAIN'S PRESENCE should also prove an aid to the rest
of the pitching staff, especially lefthander Mickey Lolich. It was
expected that Lolich would step in for McLain as the Tiger's
stopper. Instead he's been struggling to maintain a .500 record.
Apparently the lefty has had trouble adjusting to the position
of the team's ace hurler-a position he will cede back to Mc-
Lain tonight.
There are only two other problems I can forsee for the
Tigers besides the seven game deficit. One is the dissension on
the ball club, which probably will not improve by pitching
McLain on his first eligible day, thus informing him of his in-
dispensibility. The second problem is the Yankeees, who have
thoroughly convinced themselves that they are the heir appar-
ents to New York sports magic.
In any case, McLain's quick return into the baseball world,
coupled with the presence of the Yankees and a full house at
Tiger Stadium should provide enough fireworks to satisfy any
red-blooded baseball fan, but please do me a favor-don't buy
your tickets for the bleachers tonight until I get mine.

Cain's solo homer was his first
in the major leagues and helped
him win his fifth straight for a;
7-2 record. Stanley followed with
his third homer and after Dick
McAuliffe singled, Kaline blasted,
a two-run homer chasing Peter-
son, 10-4. It was Kaline's 10th.

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (P)-Pres-
ident Nixon proclaimed his Cam-
bodian operation a success yesterday,
conceded it split the American people
and promised renewed efforts toward
peace "for all of Indochina."
Nixon saluted the completion of a
withdrawal of all U.S. ground forces
on the day he set as the deadline for
this and declared:
"To the leaders of Hanoi, I say
the time has come to negotiate.
"For our part," he said, "we sfiall
renew our efforts to bring about
genuine negotiations both in Paris
and for all of Indochina."
Though noting that the unfruitful
peace talks in Paris are focusing on
Vietnam, the President threw out no
hint in a 7,000-word written state-
ment of what he had in mind by way
of seeking a larger settlement em-
bracing Laos and Cambodia.
But the administration has been
talking to a "second phase" in nego-
tiations, and a White House official
who declined to be quoted by name
told a newsman that the steps Nixon
plans on the peace front will become,
