Rod Carew-
11-time All-Star


rales of two ex-Tigers

From Wire Service Reportss
T " wayward Tigers;
,I Fry0an and Joe Coleman, two veteran
co who together rose to the peaks of their
'os t Detroit five years ago, are back in
F1 _AN RE IRED from the game late Mon-
ay, 0h e se ight that Coleman won his first
amooe Ir h yer for the Oakland A's.
00;;;; retirement came as a surprise to
i0 s ocent employer-the Cincinnati Reds.
-.e-3ty"00-old southpaw explained that he has
:cied to desvote all of his time to his tobacco
id di; farm in Ewing, Ky.
"toe fiol oty made up my mind," he said. "I
oo't he baock.
"toe been thinking about this for quite some
\e. ty ife and the kids talked about it. It
1s ti t )o make a decision."
l' % X1AN'S DECISION was hastened earlier
0 the coer by the Reds, who demoted him to
le ife oter a rocky start. As of late, how-
oer, Frvman appeared to get untracked, win-

ning his last three starts.
After leading the Tigers to their only divisional
title ever with a 10-3 record and a 2.05 ERA in
'72, Fryman later worked for the Montreal Ex-
pos before coming to the Reds prior to the '77
campaign. He bows out with a 110-124 career
Meanwohile, former teammate Coleman, who
notched 19 wins in Tigertown in '72, pitched six
strong innings Monday night in Oakland against
the Soattle Mariners in his first start of the year.
Ttoe A's won the contest 8-1.
THE SOLID SHOWING came as a surprise to
just about everyone except the right-hander
"I fe't strong for the first six innings," he
said. "I could have gone one more inning but
soy arm was getting stiff."
After being let go by both the Tigers and the
Chicago White Sox last year, Coleman caught
on with the A's this spring. He was sent down to
the minors earlier in the year in a deal that
was later nullified and has been used sparingly
since then.

Now is the best time to get
that summerweight suit with vest, at
savings. Great-looking worn together, or
separately. , .coat, vest and pants.. .
doubles with your other slacks
and tops. Solid colors or plaids in
polyester, and polyester blends,
36-40 regular, 38-42 long.

Brute strength
wat's this? A sneak preview of the Dan Farrell hockey canp? Has Red Wing training camp
4g0fO? Negatory on both counts. In this era of hockey violence, charges that hockey players
ae "nothing but animals" may have spurred this confrontation between the Duisberg, West
rnany Bruis (light jerseys) and the Duisberg Chimpanzees (dark jerseys). Actually, the
les are engaged in a practice session for an upcoming circus act.
