SPOR TS OF THE DAIL Y:

4 Tigers opt for contract arbitration

By The Associated Press
Detroit Tiger infielders Lou Whitaker
and Alan Trammell along with out-
fielder Steve Kemp and pitcher Mark
Fidrych are opting for arbitration by a
mediator rather than negotiate with the
Tiger,front office.
Ex-Tiger Ron LeFlore signed a one-
year contract with his new club, the
Montreal Expos, for an undisclosed
amount. LeFlore was traded by Detroit
to Montreal for southpaw hurler Dan
Schatzeder.
AMONG THE names still on the list
were National League relief star and
Cy Young Award winner Bruce Sutter
of the Chicago Cubs, ace Pittsburgh
reliever Kent Tekulve and top Houston
relief specialist Joe Sambito.
The Oakland A's, for the fifth straight
year, had the most players filing for ar-
bitration, with 10. Detroit, Seattle and
Toronto each had five players
scheduled to go to arbitration.
Other big names on the list included
outfielder Ellis Valentine of Montreal,
shortstop Roy Smalldy of Minnesota,
third baseman Ray Knight of Cincin-
nati, and Chicago White Sox pitcher
Ken Kravec.
One star who chose to pass up ar-
bitration was St. Louis All-Star shor-
tstop Garry Templeton. He reached,
verbal agreement Monday on a one-
year contract. Templeton had
threatened to file for arbitration, but

instead accepted a contract believed to
be worth about $300,000 for the 1980
season.
THE ARBI'TRATION process calls
for the player and the team to each
submit a salary figure to an arbitrator,
who then schedules a hearing. After
both sides present their arguments, the
arbitrator selects one of the two sub-
mitted figures as the player's salary.
There is no bargaining.,
Pete Rose, association counsel for the
players association and the man in
charge of setting up the hearings, said,
"I'm in the process right now of setting
up all the arbitrations. There will be
hearings in Chicago, San Francisco and
New York, with the last one to take
place by-Feb. 23."
Players eligible to go to arbitration
are those with at least two years of ser-
vice over three seasons, and less than
six years of total service.
The teams and players can continue
to bargain toward a new contract until
they go to arbitration.
A's stay put
OAKLAND - The late afternoon
deadline for a $4 million American
League buyout of the Oakland A's lease
came and went without any action
yesterday, practically assuring another
season at the Oakland Coliseum for the
troubled baseball team.
The league had offered the money as

a way of getting Charlie Finley out of
the remaining eight years of his lease at
the Coliseum and alowing him to sell
the club to Marvin Davis of Denver.
HOWEVER, league President Lee
MacPhail had said that the city's
refusal to accept the money by yester-
day was the end of those attempts, for
this year at least.
"There's no chance of further exten-
ding the time,'MacPhail said from his
New York office.
"Wedhave no alternative but to
proceed with preparations for the A's
home opener April 10," said Coliseum
General Manager Bill Cunningham.
"I DIDN'T really think they'd meet
the deadline," Finley said in Chicago.
"so the American League will with-'
draw its buyout offer and I'll be free to
deal with other people. That would
probably kill the sale to Marvin Davis
once and for all.
"I have a couple of people who want
to buy the team and keep it in Oakland
and then there's always the possibility
that I will keep it and run it myself."
San Leandro builder Wayne Valley, a
former owner of the Oakland Raiders,
and Dr. Dave Schoenstadt of Marin
County both have talked about buying
the team recently.
"I DON'T have meetings set up with
those guys exactly, but I wouldn't be

surprised if I got together with one or
both of them this week," Finley said.
Although the buyout offer expired
yesterday afternoon, it probably
became a dead issue the night befdre
when the Oakland City Council voted 6-1
not to drop its pending lawsuit against
Finley.
Jabbar sued
LOS ANGELES - Pro basketball
star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been
sued for divorce by his wife of nine
years, Habiba, Abdul-Jabbar's lawyer
confirmed yesterday.
"He told me he had been served
papers," attorney Bob Owen said in a
telephone conversation from New
York. Owen declined to give further
details.
ABDUL-JABBAR and his wife were
married May 28, 1971 but have been
separated since October 1978. They
have two daughters, Habiba, 7, and
Sultana, 9 months; and a three-year-old
son, Kareem.
Abdul-Jabbar has been the National
Basketball Association's Most Valuable
Player five times during his 11-year pro
career. The 32-year-old center has been
with the Los Angeles Lakers for the last
five years and is the sixth-leading
scorer in the NBA this season,
averaging 25.3 points a game.
