By HAUUY GIIAYSON NBA Service Sports Editor BRADENTON, Fla., March 27.— One of the more Interesting slops jn the Grapefruit beat Is Uraden- iOn, where the Boston Bees arc pre- jarinj 18-year-old Sebastian Sistl .0 start at second base. Or rather where old Tony Cuccinello Is schooling young Sibby Slsti .0 take his place. : Frank Frisch, new mjunjcr of 'the Pirates, offered Bob -Quliui W5.000 for Sisti. Frisch, who played plenty of, second base, snw Slstl .n 32 games with .Ihc Bses lust season while acting as radio announcer .. ths Bee hive. finch keen .judges as Quinn, Casey Stengel and Cuccinello declare Sistl would hit .350 In any AA league this trip. And a second sucker of his all-round capabilities hitting anywhere -near .360 would orinj an AA club n barrel of money on the open imrkct . . . $75,003 or so. It Is plain the Bees have something In Slstl, and they can use omething. SISTI CONCENTUATES ON DOUBLE VI.AY PIVOT For hours each day since Feb. 10, when they reporter! with Ihc recruits, Cuccinello has rehearsed •Sistl In making the pivot at the keystone sack on n double play. "It's n pleasure lo work with a kid like him," beams the veteran chance to Interfere with the second baseman." The quick rise of Sebastian Slsli Is remarkable. Mel Olt, and Bob Feller hadn't shaved .when they craslied: big time, but oft chased flics and Feller pitched. Freddie Lindstrom was the Giants' third baseman nt 17. Harry Hcll- maiin was playing the outfield for Detroit at 10. But few have been entrusted with such n key position ns second base at 1!). Frank Frisch was young nnd so was EOilie Collins, but both had college experience. .Slsli was found at Canlshis High School in Buffalo by Bill' Myers, head of. the ticket men at the Buffalo railroad station. Graduated hi June, 1938, he slepped dircclly to tiie Boston farm In Hartford, and aflcr further seasoning there lust season was brought Into the hive In July. He made only one error in 32 games nnrt the high : rate of double plays which prevailed before the brilliant EMe Miller broke Ihe bone above his sukle was m.ilnlaincri. With Les Scavsella ut first, base, double plnys started by Cuccinello this season will sound like a six- day bicycle race—from Ciiccincllo to Sistl to Scarsella. And wllh the stylish Miller at shortstop, the Bees can't miss knocking off their full share. Naturally. Cuccinello dislikes to leave second bnse. which he played so long. "There Is more action there," he explains. "But maybe my pins will carry me a few years IOIIRCI at third," tliroiisli four males.

On me, nave lounds. , the Welchman but Ihrec Agalnsl Galcnlo he rose . from the floor after being felled by one of the hardest hitters tha tory was obtainable In a safe sane, though dull, manner. Take the .Farr fight for example. Louis won It easily by stay- Ing nwny and Jabbing the Welchman dizzy with the best left hand In boxing. He would have been foolish to allow his vanity or (le- sire to please the crowd to drive him Into close quarters with ;i irmn who wanted nothing more than n chance to butt with his head, hit with his knees, and generally fight In an Illegal and dangerous fashion. Just remember this If Ixiuts clccls to defeat Paychek the ea»y way. If Paychek lasts the entire 15 rounds It won't necessarily mean thst Louis lias slipped and lost the ability to knock out men <>S, the calibre of Ihe near-bold lowan. Paychek Is a strong hitler, which means that he must always be given a chance against nny one with the normal quota of hands, arms and legs. Louis knows this and) may choose to never offer Jolnmy. a chance to throw the punch that made him the toast of the Corn Bell. And he can't be blamed if ho does. i Louis has known the hard an-jl hungry life, and having put it be-' hind him by means of the heavy-, weight championship, can scarce-' ly be criticized for trying to retain that championship wllh every means at his command. •WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, 1940 HOLD EVERYTHING By Clyde Lewis ' Redheads Win Over Caruthersvilie Quint CARUTHERSV1LLE, Mo,, March 27.—The All-American Redheads, nationally known girls' professional touring team, defeated the Caruth- ersvilie Independent, all-stars boys' team here 33-29. c.
