WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 1952 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVENTEEN Schmidt Has Good Chance of Staying Up With Cardinals By RALPH RODRN Associated Pi-ess Sports Writer Willard Schmidt, a pitcher not even on the roster, looms as one of the finest righthanded pitching prospects the St. Louis Cardinals have come up with since Big Mort Cooper left the Mound City. The hard-throwing rookie right- hander has as much chance to stick as Vinegar Ben Mizell, the highly publicized lefthander. Schmidt has appeared in four games so far and hasn't yielded an earned run in 14 innings. He has allowed eight'hits, walked only four and struck out 15. The husky 22-year-old is on the Houston, Texas League roster. He won 19 and lost 14 with Omaha of the Western League in 1951. Shut Out Reds Schmidt and Left Cliff Chambers teamed up yesterday to pitch the Cards to an 11-0 four-hit victory over the Cincinnati Reds at Tampa, Fla. Schmidt allowed tsvo hits in five innings, walked three and fanned six. The Boston Braves won a brilliant 14-inning 1-0 duel from the world champion New York Yankees at St. Petersburg, Fla. Negro rookies Bill Bruton and George Crowe doubled off Joe Ostrowski with two out to br?ak up the game. Pittsburgh also grabbed an extra inning decision, nosing out the New York Giants, 3-2, in 11 innings, at San Bernardino, Calif. Bill Howerton broke up the game with a two-out, two-run pinch-hit triple. Brilliant pitching also featured the Chicago White Sox' 2-1 triumph over Cleveland at Pasada- na, Calif., and the Philadelphia Phils, 2-1 victory over the Washington Senators at Clearwater, Fla.- Houtteman Stops A's Righthander Art Houtteman, in the army last year, allowed only four hits in seven innings as the Detroit Tigers downed the Philadelphia Athletics' "A" team, 3-1, at Lakeland, Fla. Brooklyn defeated its Fort Worth Texas League farmhands, 4-1, at Vero Beach, Fla., and the Chicago Cubs trounced the St. Louis Browns, 9-3, at Burbank, Calif. Hank Sauer and Hal Jeffcoat each clouted a two-run homer to lead the Cubs to victory over the Browns. The roster of the Pittsburgh Pirates shows that 13 of the 39 men are 25 years of age or under. Seven of these are pitchers. Pat Petroski, President of the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse League, never played the game in prep school or college. HIGH HOPES —Paul Richards smiles faintly as he watches his team work out at Pasadena, Calif., no doubt highly pleased with what he sees. The Chicago White Sox manager predicts another good year for his men, says they may even cop the pennant. —NEA. Durocher Worrying About Poor Hitting PASADENA, Calif., March 19. /I 1 —Manager Leo Durocher of the New York Giants is pleased withh is pitching staff but is a bit worried over the lack of punch at the plate. Bobby Thomson is the only player hitting consistently. Thomson is banging away at a .3jjO clip. Cleanup hitter Monte" Irvin is under .200. The rest of the regulars also are below par at the plate. Raschi I^ooks Great In First Appearance CLEARWATER, Fla., March 19. /P—Vic Raschi, veteran right- hander of the New York Yankees, made his first appearance of the season yesterday and- showed no ill effects from his right knee operation last winter. The 20-game winner allowed only two hits during his five innings in a game the Yanks dropped to the Boston Braves, 1-0, in 14 frames. The 1952 harness racing season winds up Nov. 15 at Yonkers, N.Y. Long Ball Hitting Brinkopf, Sophomore Hurlers Should Lift Cellar Dwelling Cubs MESA, Ariz., March 19, K— The Chicago Cubs, in the best spring condition in years, will be counting on the long ball-hitting potential of a rookie outfielder and a flock of sophomore slab talent to pull them out of the National League cellar in 1952. Leon Brinkopf, a 25-year-old third baseman, who crashed 25 homers for Los Angeles of the Pacific Coast League last season, is being converted into an outfielder. Bob Rush, the elongated right- hander, who was the winningest Cub pitcher in 1951, with 11 victories, is believed by Cub Pitching Coach Charlie Root to be on the verge of achieving greatness. He posted a 3.79 earned run average in 37 games last year. Without very much new talent, Manager Phil Cavarrelta's main hope of making a belter showing is that he can instill more hustle into his shagy lineup of veterans and youngsters. Phil Will Fill In Cavarrelta expects to play CO to 70 games himself at first base. If Deo Fondy proves himself a major leaguer, Phil will be able to do less playing. Fondy, a good man in the field, hit .37G for Los Angeles after being sent down by the Cubs last season. The Cub infield will have plenty of experience with either Ransom Jackson or Bill Serena at third; Ihe veteran Roy Smalley at short; and the ex-Brooklyn handyman, Eddie Miksis, at second. Smalley is rapidly recovering from a bad ankle that kept him out of action most of 1951. Miksis, who hit well after being traded to the Cubs in the Andy Pafko package, will be the infield spark. Northey Could Help Don Northey, the former St. Louis Cardinal, Cincinnati Red and Philadelphia Philly, could help the Bruins if his knee holds out. Always a long ball-hitter, Northey was voluntarily retired last season for an operation on his left knee. Me says he's ready to nail down the right field berth. Hammering Hank Sauer, Bob Usher, Bob Addis, Gene Hermanski, Hal Jeffcoat, Rookie Harvey Gentry, Frank Baumhollz, Brinkopf and White Sox eastoff Jack Wallaean are all battling for garden spots. Baumholtz was a regular last year and had Ihe top batting average for outfielders—.284. In the catching department, the Cubs have the veteran Bruce Edwards, formerly of Brooklyn; John Pramesa, who was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds in the off sea-i son; and a pair of rookies, Maurice Atwell, up from Montreal, and Harry Chili, who got into nine games for the Chicagoans last season. Liken Rivefa Of Brownies To Ty Cobb Indians' 1 Al Lopez Has Doiibls About Jim's Base Stealing ttv OAVI.K TALnOT nURRANK. March 19 - .T- SpeakinR as one of (ho fairly modern Rpnorntion who did not SOP Ty Cobb nf his host and has ne»r-r understood how it was possible for a ball player to run Ihp hasps HIP way they say Ty did, we nre looking fonvnrd to the rominp spa- son with curiosity. Thp rpason is that Rogers Itorns- by says IIP has a man who is HIP closest fhinpr to a throwback to Cobb IIP has won. If you've followed tlip sports IWRPS nt nil thl* sprlne you know the plnyer—,Tlm Rlveni, a 30-yenr-olcl outfielder coining tip to the St. Louis Ttrowno from Seattle, where he helped Hornsby win n eonst leacue flajf last year with a .SiW slick- Ing; nvenrge nnd 33 stolen bases. "He's the only man since Cobb with the speed and the instinct to run a catcher nnd an infield crazy." says Hornsby. "He'll shew you base running like you never saw before." Hornsby was asked if Rivera, n six-foot, 200-pounder, would be an absolutely free agent once he reached base, free to take off like the wind aS he chose. Rajah hedged a yttle and said not exactly, that circumstances would intrude, but he said that for the most part Rivera would be permitted to write his own ticket. Al Lopez, the Cleveland man- ngor who did a lot of catching up to a few years baek, says Jim Is In for a great disappointment If he thinks he Is going to run wild In the big show, "He will find there are some arms up here like he didn't see in the coast league," Al remarked. "I'll be greatly surprised, as n matter of fact, if Rivera proves to be a better base runner than Minoso of the White Sox. There's a guy who can really go for my money." Stewart Five Sets Record In Big Win DENVER, March 19— 7P— San Francisco's defending champion Stewart Chevrolets set a new scoring record last night in leading 16 teams into today's second round of the National Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball tournament.

The Virginians scored 26 points. San Francisco's nifty debut against the team of New Mexico school fbachers and ex-college players caused tournament observers to rate the Stewarts even with Phillips and Oakland, Calif., the pro-meet co-favorites for the title. George Yardley, the 1951 tournament's most valuable player, playing with a cast on his right wrist, made only 31 points as his mates from Los Alamitos, Calif.. Naval Air Station doused Bedford, Ind., Kaler Kandy Kids, 01-71. The Navy team plavs Phillips, champion seven out of the last nine years, in one of the highlights of today's eight game schedule.
