Philly Manager O'..eill Says
Simmons Needs Conditioning
r MILWAUKEE - OP) - There's
nothing wrong with Curt Simmons
that conditioning and better con-
trol won't cure.
* Manager Steve O'Neill of the
Philadelphia Phillies says he is
concerned about the ineffective-
ness of his star left-hander, but

tarts and has won one and lost

caught his foot in a power mower
June 4 and had half an inch of

said O'Neill. "He hasn't had time
to get back in shape. His arm tires
both in the upper arm and in the
forearm. His toe has healed com-
pletely and hasn't affected his tyre

SIMMONS says the foot doesn't
bother him. He just can't seem to
get the ball where he wants it. As
a result he has to take something1
off his fast ball to get it over, and
the batters are rapping him hard.
There was some conjecture'
a the time of the power mower
incident that Simmons might
have to alter his style to acquire
a new balancing and pivoting
technique, but O'Neill says such
has not been the case.
"Lack of condition and wildness7
is all that's wrong with Curt. He'lli
have to regain his condition thet
tough way, in game competition,"1
says O'Neill. "I don't like it, but,
there's nothing I can do about it.
It's the only way he'll get the work

SIMMONS, who had a 7-4 won
and lost record before the accident,
seems to have some kind of tough
luck almost every year.
As a bonus kid he had to learn
the ropes without minor league
experience. When he finally got

The doctor who amputated the

foot in pitching big league baseball
was considered a normal function.
