Detroit (AP) - Slugging first
baseman Mike Ivie, who was given his
unconditional release last week by the
Houston Astros, signed a one-year con-
tract Thursday with the Detroit Tigers.
Ivie, 29, has a .274 career batting
average with 67 home runs.
The signing of the 6-foot-4, 215-pound
right-handed hitter, who has a history
of emotional problems, brings the
Tigers' roster back to the 25-man major
NEW YORK (AP)- A reputed
cocaine dealer's allegation in a taped
tonversation that one or more New
York Yankee baseball players used the
drug was dismissed by the judge in a
narcotics trial yesterday as "third-
source hearsay on top of hearsay."
Justice Burton Roberts of the state
Supreme Court in Manhattan said the
names would not be revealed in court to
keep the players from becoming
"scapegoats of rumor and gossip."
THE DEFENSE, however, said that
news stories about the tapes had
prejudiced the case of five people ac-
cused of running a cocaine ring and
asked for a mistrial. Defense attorney
Mark Landsman also said that Yankee
players might he subpoenaed to testify
to dispel any impression that "my
client had something to do with corrup-
ting a sporta figure, a hero."
Assistant district attorney Moacyr
Calhelha told the judge there was no
evidence "that any member of the
Yankees possessed or used cocaine at
Roberts, who took the mistrial motion
under advisement, promised to instruct
the jury "that the New York Yankees
are in no way involved in this particular
matter and these defendants are in no
way involved with the New York
"It is the duty of a court to protect in-
dividuals from the ruination of their
names and possible loss of prestige in a
community.... where baseball players
are considered something akin to saints
to youngsters," Roberts said.
A atatement issued by Baseball
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn'a office
said, "While the story seems to be pure
conjecture, we will naturally check it
out as we do all such stories."
