Niekro nailed; Tigers win, 6-4

By STEVE HERZ
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - The long ball took cen-
ter stage at Tiger Stadium last night
as the Detroit Tigers out-homered
Rickey Henderson, 3-2, for a 6-4 win
over the New York Yankees.
However, it was an ordinary base
hit by Larry Herndon that knocked in
two runs, giving the Tigers a lead they
never relinquished.

Henderson set the stage for the,
long-ball duel by opening the contest
with a solo shot off Detroit starter and\\
winner Randy O'Neal (2-1).
He lengthened the lead by scoring
Mike Pagliarulo from second base
with his longest hit of the evening - a
370-foot single off the top of the right- ,
field fence. Bobby Meacham, who ad- n
vanced to third on the hit, later scored
on a pass ball to give the Bronx Bom-
bers a 3-0 lead.
The Tigers, who were shut down by
New York starter and loser Phil 4
Niekro (7-6), unloaded on the veteran
in the fifth inning. Tom Brookens
opened the frame with a double over
third base. Lou Whitaker followed by
sending a Niekro fastball into the up- w
per deck in right field, closing the lead
to one run, 3-2.
Detroit then loaded the bases, and
with two outs Herndon drilled the
game-winner straight through the
middle, scoring Alan Trammell and
Darrell Evans.
Evans and Gibson added late solo AE f
homers, offsetting Henderson's
eighth-inning blast, which chased

Too much cheating going
on, NCAA cracks down

NEW ORLEANS (UPI) - NCAA
representatives overwhelmingly
approved sweeping legislation to
combat cheating yesterday and
vowed the proposals are just the
start of an assault on widespread
corruption in college athletics.
The proposals sailed through the
special convention with little
discussion and were approved by
the representatives from more
than 500 schools by unanimous or
near-unanimous margins.
THE LEGISLATION creates
tougher penalties for schools and
coaches that cheat - including a
ban of up to two years for some
teams - and gives university
presidents more direct control of
athletic activities.
The delegates also approved in-
creased reporting of athletic ex-
penses and academic progress by
student-athletes.
"This isn't gong to eliminate
cheating, but it's going to reduce
the temptation to cheat," said John
Toner, president of the University
of Connecticut. "It's an appeal for
everyone to run things with in-
tegrity.
VINCE DOOLEY, athletic direc-
tor and football coach of the
Georgia program currently on

probation, said the votes "send a
clear signal to the country that
athletics will be restored to the
level of integrity that they should
be."
Heated debate had been expec-
ted on some of the proposals but lit-
tle criticism was expressed during
the two-and-a-half hour session.
Most of the proposals were ap-
proved by 98 percent or more of the
delegates.
The most controversial proposal
- dividing infractions into
"major" and "secondary"
categories and subjecting repeat
violators to severe punishment -
passed easily. Schools with two
major infractions within five years
could be prevented from par-
ticipating in a sport for up to two
years.
"The presidents are heartsick
about the serious violations of
rules that are occurring and
they're determined to stop them,"
said John Ryan, president of In-
diana University and chairman of
the NCAA's Presidents Com-
mission.
"We must all anticipate a con-
tinuing effort to eliminate corrup-
tion in intercollegiate athletics."
