1968 - Year of the Tiger
It doesn't matter if you side with the players or the owners in the
current baseball strike, there is one thing that everyone agrees on-it is
an unfortunate situation. So in order to partially relieve the misery of
any baseball junkies going through withdrawal, throughout the
duration of the strike the Daily is providing a look back to a more
pleasant time-1968. There was no free agent compensation, no
NLRB, no court injunctions-and no strike. And for those of you
who don't remember, in 1968 the Tigers were winners, World Series
winners, in fact. Each day the Daily relates the results of the previous
evening's Tiger game-minus 13 years.

Levi leads tournament
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -
Wayne Levi overcame continuing put-
ting problems with a 4-under-par 67 and
took a one-stroke lead yesterday in the
second round of the $300,000 Anheuser-
Busch Golf Classic.
Bob Murphy, Howard Twitty and Jim
Booros, are tied at 138, one shot behind
Levi's total of 137. Twitty matched
Levi's no-bogey, 4-under-par 67, while
Murphy and Booros each recorded a
second consecutive 69.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Manager
Mayo Smith admits that Detroit is in
a rut, but he doesn't think it's deep
enough for the grave-diggers to
begin filling it on top of his Tigers
The last-place Washington
Senators smote the Tigers 6-3 last
night, giving Detroit four losses in
their last five games. The setback
sliced their first-place margin over
Baltimore to five games, just a
shade over what it was at the All-
Star break two weeks earlier.
SMITH SAID, "We're in one of
those ruts we have to battle out of,
both in hitting and pitching.
"Everybody expects you to win,
win, win. You just don't do that.
There isn't a club in baseball that
hasn't had this kind of rut happen to
them this year"
The Tigers dronned three atraight
the ninth. Hannan allowed only
seven hits and three walks while
striking out three in the eight innings
he worked as he picked up his fourth
win in six decisions.
A walk to Dick McAuliffe started
the Tigers off. Mickey Stanley
followed with a double and Jim Nor-
thrup singled in a run on an infield
out. A single by Al Kaline drove in
DETROIT'S OTHER run came in
the ninth inning when pinch-hitter
Gates Brown slammed a single off
reliever Dick Bosman to send Kaline
home with the Tigers' third and final
run. Brown has been superb in pincha
hitting duties this year, as he is 11
for 18 under such circumstances.
Detroit starter Mickey Lolich
lasted less than four innings in
picking up the loss. Lolich gave up
seven hits, five runs and two walks.
He struck out four Washington bat-
The loss dropped Detroit to 60-37
on the season.

Owner proposal outlined
NEW YORK (AP) - Here are the
details of the latest offer by major
league club owners to settle the
players' strike, as summarized yester-
day by Raymond Grebey, director of
the Player Relations Committee:
1-Ranking free agents in the upper
20 percent of performance criteria on a
two-year average to require
professional player compensation in
addition to the amateur draft choice
which has been in effect.
2-RANKING free agents in the 20 per-
cent to 30 or 35 percent performance
range to require two amateur draft
choices, one from the signing club and
one from a special draft round charged
to no specific club.
3-No added player compensation for
ranking free agents in the re-entry
draft for the second time or with 13
years of major league service.
4-A maximum of ranking free agen-
ts requiring added player compen-
sation of eight in 1981 and 10 in each of
the following years, with no carryover
for unused selections.
5-TWO AMATEUR draft choices for
ranking players above the specified
maximums of 8-10-10.
6-Two alternatives for selection of
ranking free agents. One, which is a
variation of the mediator's concept,
calls for added direct professional
player compensation, the amount
depending on the standings of the two
clubs involved, with protection lists
ranging from 23 to 27 players and in
some instances requiring only an
amateur draft choice. The other alter-
native is a selection pool arrangement
in which all clubs would participate,
with signing clubs permitted to protect
24 players and non-signing clubs 28.
7-Up to five clubs to be permitted to
exclude themselves from the pool by
declaring non-participation in the
signing of ranking free agents for three
MIAMI (AP)-Thomas "Hollywood"
Henderson drew rave reviews - in-
cluding from himself, of course - for
his Miami Dolphins debut.
"You had to be impressed with No. 56
on defense," Coach Don Shula said of
Henderson's performance Thursday in
a "rookie" scrimmage with the New
"HE WORKED 12 plays defensively
and made two or three good plays. If he
straightens himself out and stays on the
right path, he's going to be a heck of a
football player," Shula added.
The 28-year-old linebacker is trying
to salvage his National Football League
career in his Dolphins tryout. A
publicity-seeking star for the Dallas
Cowboys three years ago, Henderson
eventually wore out Coach Tom Lan-
dry's patience with his sideline antics
and was cut. He then flunked trials with
two other NFL teams.
Last year he admitted a drug abuse
problem and enrolled in a drug
"I SHOWED intestinal fortitude
today," Henderson decided. "I broke
up that screen pass that came my way.
I'm getting my old self back. I'm still
playing with a smile on my face."
Saints Coach Bum Phillips said Hen-
derson forced him to give some guidan-
ce to the three quarterbacks he used in
"After the first couple of times, I told
them that I didn't care what they
called, just as long as they didn't call it
to that side," Phillips said.
"I feel like I have my killer instinct
back," said Henderson. "I was hustling
today. The key to my success is I have
to be consistent.
Rinaldi turns pro
HASBROUK HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) -
Fourteen-year-old Kathy Rinaldi, the
youngest player ever to win a match at
Wimbledon, said yesterday she will
make her professional debut at next
month's U.S. CLay Court Champion-
ships in Indianapolis, Ind.
-Rinaldi, who passed up $12,938 in ear-
nings as an amateur, becomes the
youngest pro tennis player in history,
eclipsing the mark set by Andrea
Jaeger, now 16, by four months.
"My family and I have been thinking
about this for a couple of months," said
Rinaldi, who enters the ninth grade at
Florida's Martin County High School in
"I'm sure there will be people who
disagree with this decision. But I wan-
ted to play in the pros on a regular
basis," said the shy, blonde teenager.

Dawkins will lead a team of NBA
players against a college All-Star team
at Pioneer High School tonight at 8:00..
