(Tampa, Florida) 23 Cincinnati Reds players show up for practice. Four key players haven't signed up. Situation assessed. Catcher Johny Bench is only player with 2-yr. contract; he's the highest paid. 3rd baseman Pete Rose and 2nd baseman, Joe Morgan, can become free agents next year if they choose. [MORGAN - says something terrible would have to happen before he'd leave his team.] All confident there'll be player-owner agreement.
