a 7-6 victory4
From Wire Service Reports
PHILADELPHIA-Bake McBride's
three-run homer in the third inning
culminated a dramatic five-run
Philadelphia third inning as the under-
dog Phillies squeaked past Kansas City,
7-6, in the first game of the 1980 World
Series.
The victory, earned by rookie pitcher
Bob Walk and saved by Tug McGraw,
was the Phillies' first in World Series
action since 1915.
McGRAW, WHO entered the game in
the eighth after the second of two Willie
Mays Aikens' home runs, was superb.
The 35-year-old southpaw ended the
eighth-inning Kansas City threat by in-
ducing John Wathan to bounce into a
double play, and retired the side in or-
der in the ninth.

over KC
The Royals surged to a 4-0 lead after
two and one-half innings. Darrell Por-
ter walked to open the second and Amos
Otis then delivered a home run to left
for a 2-0 Kansas City lead. In the third,
Hal McRae singled with one out and
scored on Willie Mays Aikens' long
home run to right against Walk.
Walk's counterpart, Dennis Leonard,
retired the first seven batters' before
Larry Bowa singled into center field in
the third. Bob Boone followed with a
run-scoring double into the left field
corner.
LONNIE SMITH then singled, and
when he got trapped in a rundown, he
held off the out until Boone scored to
make it 4-2.
Leonard promptly hit Pete Rose with
a pitch and walked Mike Schmidt. The
KC righthander then laid a fastball over
the heart of the plate, and McBride
deposited the offering in the right field
seats to givePhiladelphia a 5-4 edge.
The Phillies tallied again in the fourth
against Leonard. Manny Trillo opened
the frame with a high bouncer which he
beat out for an infield hit, and advanced
to second on an errant pickoff throw.
AFTER BOWA grounded out, Boone,
a .222 hitter during the season, laced his
second big hit of the night, a double just
inside the right fieldline. The hit scored
Trillo and spelled finis for Leonard.
Royals' manager Jim Frey removed
him in favor of rookie Renie Martin.

A STUNNED Dennis Leonard can only watch as his delivery to Phillie Bake McBride sails over the right field fence for a three run
homer. The third inning blast off Royal's starting pitcher Leonard gave Philadelphia the lead 5-4.

Minnesota quarterback more than
a gopher for his coaching father

By GARY LEVY
It is fairly common these days for a
high school athlete to be playing for a
team that his father just happens to
coach.
This father and son combination is
seldom found in the college ranks.
Thus, when Bo Schembechler and Co.
travel to Minneapolis Saturday to face
Minnesota, the Wolverines will encoun-
ter a rarity in college sports-'Smokey'
Joe Salem is the Gophers' coach and his
son Tim starts at quarterback.
The 6-0, 182-pound freshman beat out
several other candidates for the star-
ting assignment in fall practice and has
led the Gophers to a 2-3 record in the
1980 season.
.According to the younger Salem, the
problems that can easily arise have
been avoided, and playing for his father
has been an enjoyable experience.
Oddly enough, his father did not at-
tempt to recruit him. The younger
Salem said he had no other choice but to
attendrMinnesota; his enrollment,
however was not a result of paternal
pressure.
"I really couldn't go anywhere else,"
explained the Gopher signal-caller, who
earned All-State honors in Arizona as a
junior and in Minnesota as a senior.
"Colleges shied away from recruiting
me because they all figured I'd be going
to the school where my father
coached."
Salem said that he doesn't think of
himself as the coach's son and neither
do his teammates.
"The way I look at it, I'm just another

player who wants to do the best I can,"
said Salem.
He also said that his father treats him
just like any other player. "He gets on
my back just as much as anybody," he
said.
Although the Salems have a
seemingly close father-son relation-
ship, and despite the fact that the senior
Salem serves as offensive co-ordinator,
the freshman said he rarely sees his
dad.
"I never see him except on the prac-

'Sometimes when I lead the offense
on to field, I have the greatest feel-
ing in the world knowing that I'm
playingfor my dad.'

tice field, in meetings, and at games,"
said Salem. "Occasionally, he'll drop
me off a package from my mom."
All prejudice aside, coach Salem said
he is pleased with his new quarter-
back's performance.
"He played well early in the year,"
said the elder Salem. "He hasn't done
anything great, but he gives us good
leadership out there. He's better than
the other ones we've got here."

Salem's stats this season have not
been overly impressive. He ranks ninth
of ten in passing efficiency in the Big
Ten (33 completions in 62 attempts for
326 yards and one touchdown), and has
thrown seven interceptions.
However, Salem said that blame for
the Gophers' losing record has not been
placed on his shoulders.
"I think I've played pretty well,"
Salem said. "The mistakes that have.
killed us are team mistakes, so you
can't put the blame on anyone."
He said the situation has yet to reach
the point where he is unable to
withstand the pressure.
"That comes when you play bad,"
said Salem. "Arid hopefully, that'll
never happen."
Thus far, as far as Salem is concer-
ned, it has been a dream come true.
"Sometimes when I lead the offense
onto the field, I have the greatest
feeling in the world knowing that I'm
playing for my dad."
