(UP) 1 —The tall guy luped back to Iliej left field fence and picked off u ll!ic drive will) all the skill of a Tris Speaker. Riding the crest of a great career. Hank Greenberi; has switched from first base lo the outfield—trip most daring experiment of the I'JMJ baseball season. Ball players who have f.l-Jirei! in two positions are rave. fiuutty Walters, a so-so third baseman, de- velrme:! into a great pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, jimmy Foxx, a iintiiriil ball player, would be a .-.tar at first base, third base or behind the pliiie. There arc a few other;,, but any maiia-jcr who takes an outstanding first bjstman -.mil switches him to Hie outfield Is taking a ions gamble. Manager Del Baker of Hie Detroit Tigers took that gamble in an attempt to make a place in his lineup for Rudy York, the belting In- rtinn «'ho may be_o-.:e of the Inrdest hitlers of the last five years. York was tried as an outfielder and a catcher, and he wasn't a ball of fire at cither job. First base seemed to bs the only phce where lie ivoul:) fit, but standing on first base for he Ti»ers was Hankus Pankiis iibert', a savage hitter, a sweet fielder—n man who was voted the most valuable player in Hie American League in 1935. During the winter Greenberg was called to Detroit. Everyone thought l was to discuss salary—Hank Is •unong the highest paid players in he name—so there was no little surprise when the announcement was made that York was the first baseman this season for the Tigers and that Greenberg was golii" to the outfield. "I'll do my best out there," Hank said. Today he is doing his best and it looks pretty good. Harry Heilmann, the great' outfielder for Detroit years ago who litul the misfortune to be overshadowed by Ty cobb. is down here and he peered out through the sun as Greenberg snagged one fly ball after another. "He'll do all right," said Hcll- mann. -He's n great ball player." Manager Baker is not the least bit worried about Greenberg and does nol believe that the switch to the outfield will adect Hank's halting eye. "Grccnbevg is a natural bal' player." Baker said. "He's the kind thht never has any trouble pickin- up new techntnue. No manager halo worry atom a man who play- ball by instinct and that's tiv- kind of a fellow Grecnbevg is." Spring training is only about a week ol.l, but everybody takes it far gnntccl thai Greenberg will make good. The basebull writers wh- choso the American and National League nli-stnr teams to play In Tampa for flic Finnish relief j'n-i on March n put Greenberg on the squad as an outfielder allhou?!- none of them had ever seen him play away from first base. Greenberg's future, obviously, r, linked with York. Bets are bjr.i made that York's fieldino will ua( be good enough and that Greei:- nt earned-run depa r tin e n t- •2.23 and 2.30. my still had business, but- I faithful customers and Read the required speed a curve as though STANDARD TIRES .Both have and break of the ball were rolling olT a table.

Charley Stanceau won only nine while dropping seven decisions tor the fitlh place Blnghamlon club nnd Ernie Uouham's record with Kansas City wasn't nearly as impressive as those of Dreucr nnd Reis. but belli have the latent ability demanded of » major league pitcher.

If he doesn't Yankee Miom.s will continue the search until !)>ry someone who will. made a clean i?) profit of a penny a glass. berg will be back on first by 4. But nobody is betting Greenberg won't turn into a class outfielder.
