LeFlore, Staub fare
well in All-Star vote
By The Asociait,,l,'rle's',
NEW YORK-Boston outfielder Fred Lynn led all American
League vote-getters in the second weekly tabulation of All Star
ballots announced yesterday.
LYNN, LAST YEAR'S AL Rookie of the Year and Most Valu-
able Player, has 559,881 votes. Detroit Tiger teammates Ron
LeFlore and Rusty Staub retained their positions as second and
third highest vote-getters among AL outfielders. LeFlore has
351,786 votes, Staub has 301,021. California's Bobby Bonds is fourth
with 285,960.
Boston teammates Carl Yastrzemski and Carlton Fisk, rookie
Willie Randolph of the New York Yankees and veteran Fred
Patek of the Kansas City Royals took over the voting lead for their
positions.
YASTRZEMSKI, a five-tine All Star starter in the outfield,
took over the lead at first base with 320,842 votes, just over 9,000
ahead of Minnesota's Rod Carew, who has 311,779. Carew has
started nine straight All Star Games at second base before
switching positions this season. Mike Hargrove of Texas, last
week's leader at first base, slipped to fourth place with 219,822,
trailing Yastrzemski, Carew and Chris Chambliss of the New York
Yankees, who has 236,234.

Yankees, last week's leader. Fisk has 478,948 votes to 453,637 for
Munson, who started for the Al, last year.
RANDOLPH, the first rookie ever listed on the All Star ballot,
moved in front at second base with 369,871 to 342,260 for Bobby
Grich of Baltimore.
At shortstop, the pint-sized Patek, who has never played in
an All Star Game, moved in front with 263,178 votes to 251,638 for
Toby Harrah of Texas, last week's leader.
PATEK'S Kansas City teammate, third baseman George Brett,
holds nearly a 100,000 vote lead with 361,962 to 263,886 for runner-up
Don Money of Milwaukee.
Balloting continues through July 4 with the All Star Game set
for Philadelphia July 13.

Jazz pursue Malone

By The Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS - The New
Oleans Jazz are trying to
sidestep the draft pool of play-
ers from the American Basket-
hall Association by signing 6-
foot-11 center Moses Malone, it
v as reported yesterday.
Jazz general counsel Sheldon
Ileychock flew to Washington
today to negotiate with Ma-
lone's attorney, the New Or-
leans States-Item said.
"If we can come to a dol-
lar figure together, and we're
not that far apart, I'm going
to sign Moses. I don't think
sve are the only team that
will sign players before the
draft," Behychok was quot-
ed by the paper as saying.
Malone, who had been prop-
erty of the ABA Spirits of St.
Louis, was thrown into a draft
poul along with other ABA
players by the decision of the
National Basketball Association
not to admit Kentucky and St.
Louis (moved to Utah) from the
younger league.
But the Jazz held NBA rights
'c Malone, the 20-year-old who
was drafted out of high school
by the Utah Stars in 1974.
Beychok said he talked with
Malone's attorney, Lee Fen-
tress, last week and received a
call from Fentress shortly after
'he NBA move was announced
Thursday.
"As of this time, Malone is
free of a contract and Fen-
tress assured me he can get a
release and make him a free
agent," Beychok said.
Beychok said the signing of

Malone still would have to be
approved by the league. "I cer-
tainly don't want any litigation
from anyone by signing him,"
he said.
Bavasi named GM
TORONTO - Peter Bavasi, a
12-year veteran of major league
baseball administration, has
been named vice president and
general manager of Toronto's
franchise in the American
League.
Bavasi, 33, has been vice
president and general mana-
ger of the National League's
San Diego Padres the last
four years and has been as-
sociated with baseball most
of his life,
His father, Buzzy Bavasi,
president of the Padres, was
general manaager of the old
Montreal Royals of the Inter-
national League from 1947 to
1948.
The two - man committee,
which started looking for an
over-all boss of the operation
just four weeks ago, was made
so of Don McDougall, president
of Labatt Breweries, Lt., and
Gerry Snyder of Montreal, rep-
resenting the other major in-
vestor in the baseball opera-
tions - R. Howard Webster.
Labatt's and Webster each

own 45 per cent of the shares
in the franchise with the Ca-
nadian Imperial Bank of Com-
merce owning the other 10 per
cent.
It was announced that Bavasi
will begin his duties with the
Toronto franchise almost im-
mediately.
Ali vocal
TOKYO - Muhammad Ali
hammed it up at a press club
lunch yesterday but on one sub-
ject he was elaborately serious:
His bizarre match with Japa-
nese wrestler Antonio Inoki here
June 26 isn't rigged.
The bout, billed as the first
world martial arts champion-
ship, will gross $6.1 million for
Ali and up to $4 million for
Inoki, according to sponsors.
In great form and fine voice,
Ali told the Foreign Correspon-
dents Club of Japan he had
yearned since he was a boy to
determine which is supreme,
boxer or grappler.
Any suggestions t h a t the
match is fixed are absurd, he
said.
