Bout the and Ogden Friday no great Annie DeVries Sparkles As Ogden All-Stars Wallop Salt Lakers; Laugh? Yes--On The League Saturday's today made seem Detroit s outfield may have been "the laugh of the American league" in 1934, but it helped the Tigers win the pennant, and the regulars are being brought back this season. Goose Goslln, £"' , * 5 P lcndl d money player. Jo-Jo White, center, and Pete FOX, right, go and get 'cm, and know their way around the bases. Tigers To Stand Pat n OutfieldFor 1935 By HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NEA Service. NEW YORK, Feb. 7.--Mickey Cochrane admits that the Detroit Tigers could use another right- hand hitting outfielder to advantage, advantage, but does not know where to obtain one. That being the case, Cochrane has decided to do the next best thing--make the most of what he has. The ignited Irishman did a fairly good Job of that in his managerial managerial bow in 1934. "Jo-Jo White developed rapidly In the last .two months of the season. season. I am counting on the little Georgian' to start in center field, flanked by Goose Goslln and Pete Fox," says Cochrane. A great majority of baseball men could not associate an outfield composed composed of Goslln, White, Fox. Gerald Walker, and Frank Doljack with a pennant-winning outfit. Goslln, 33 and with 15 years of service behind him, had been traded by Washington for the younger Rocky Stone. White 'hit only .252 in 1033, .and Fox only .288. Walker ran bases like a chicken with its head cut off. Dol- |ack had a minor league complex. The outfield was "the laugh of o league." · Yet nil except Doljack are being jrought back for another campaign --and another pennant, In the opin- ,on of Cochrane. .. AS COCHRANE SEES IT. "While we were lucky in completing completing a season without a serious serious Injury, and were regarded as having had breaks In other ways, no other American league club has strengthened to a point where it Is an outstanding threat," explains · have liked to have landed Al Simmons, Simmons, of the White Sox. What ar ray wouldn't? There are othsr re trlevers whose presence in the lineup lineup o f . Frank Navln's aggregation would .make Its appearance in the 1935. world .series vastly more certain, certain, but even an owner with a bankroll the size of that of Tom Yawkey of the Red Sox can't buy everybody he fancies. When Cochrane concluded shopping shopping the best he could show was Suitcase Seeds, purchased from Cleveland largely because he hits right-handed. After five years In the American league there Is little else to recommend the tall Texan. HITS FROM WRONG SIDE. Unfortunately, the Tigers' outstanding outstanding recruit 'outfielder of 1935 swats the ball-from the left side of the plate. He is Chester Morgan, Morgan, who gets places in a hurry and who topped Texas league batsmen batsmen with a mark of .342. "Many do not give White and Fox full credit for their speed," asserts asserts Cochrane. "White really hnd H phenomenal year. He hit .313, figures show him to have been the most reliable baserunner in the American league; and he covered acres of ground In center field." Among them, White, Fox and Walker swiped 73 bases last season. White attempted 34 thefts and was thrown out only six times, for a percentage of .823, the best in the circuit. Bill Werber, the Boston third baseman who led In stolen bases with 40, was tossed out on 15 occasions, occasions, for a percentage of .727. Fox, who purloined 25 bases, was thumbed out 10 times, leaving him with a percentage of .714. Walker, who stole 20, failed to slide safely BOXERS PASS UP CHANGE TO FACE MAX BAER By GEORGE KIRKSEY (United Press Staff Correspondent) CHICAGO, Feb. 7.--(UP)--Echoes still were reverberating today from the punches which heavyweight champion Max Baer bounced off King Levlnsky's noggin more than a month and a half ago. The public is clamoring to see Baer In action again, and the Chicago Chicago stadium has the champion set for a 10-round no-decision bout March 4, with G-ounce gloves. But the present crop of heavyweights want no part -of Baer. They stUl can hear the thud of Baer's gloves on Levinsky's jaw, and they are running running In the other direction. Jimmy Bronson, American representative representative of Walter Neusel, German heavyweight, tentatively accepted terms for Neusel to meet Bner. The Bacr-Ncusel match fell through when Neusel cabled Bronson that he wants $50,000 to meet Baer. Baer Is willing to fight Neusel for ataut half that figure. So Neusel has been dropped as R prospective opponent. Negotiations have been reopened for Art Lasky to take the Baer match. Terms are agreeable to Lasky but he wants the bout to be at 20 rounds, knowing that 15 rounds Is the limit in Illinois. If Lasky turns down the chance to meet Baer. Lewis- and Mullen may send King Levlnsky back against the champion. Levinsky has sent word from Florida, where he is riding around in a robin's egg blue automobile as long as a block, that he Is anxious to get back in the ring ^ with Baer. "I think Baer stopped me with a lucky punch," Levinsky said, fought him 30 rounds and he never hurt me, and then I get stopped with one punch. The rest of these muggs may be afraid of Baer but I'm not." Ray Impellletcre, New York -giant, and Charley Retzlaff, who recently stopped Al Ettore in his comeback campaign, are two other prospective opponents for Baer. The rest of the leading heavyweights heavyweights are unavailable. Steve Hamas leaves soon to fight Max Schmellng In Hamburg, Germany. Primo Camera returns shortly to South America for another bout. Joe Louis, Detroit's sepia slasher, would fight Baer but the promoters want to keep him In action among the contenders until September, hoping to build him up as the outstanding challenger for a 15-round title bout with Baer in Soldiers Field. : M WILDCATS TO ETPARSONS AT SALT LAKE Weber and Westminster college cagers, traditional rivals of long standing, will meet in Salt Lake Friday and Saturday at the latter's court, while Dixie and B.
