Third Base Stronger So White Sox Look For Improved Season By BOH MVRKS TUCSON, Am., March 26. .!' •For 11 stirring and somewhat surprising days, Ihe Chicago White Sox held Ihe lead in Ihe pennant race in Ihe American League last year. The Sox may not hold Ihe lead so long Ihis season, but there are those with the club who profess lo believe they'll hold il when it counts -meaning (he final day. Much of the optimism is based on Ihe point that Paul Richards is Ihe manager, tactician arid brains of Ihe outfit. He worked a small miracle in setting Ihe Sox ablu/.e and into the first div isiori in his freshman year as a major league manager. With what most critics think is a stronger club, Richards in his second go-round might just up and do that much better. Aided Third lluse The principal strengthening efforts were aimed at Ihir.l base. Richards, (leneral Manager Frank Lane nnd Company came up with a star from the International League, Hector Rorlrique/, lo fill the gap. Rodrique/., now another member of the Cuban colony on the team, is a 31-year-old veteran of Latin American baseball. He fielded well, hit .'.102 and stole 26 bases for Montreal, as well as driving in f)F> runs. Richards cut. Bob Dillingcr loose yesterday and presumably is going along with Rodriquc/, with utility man Sam Denle from Hie Senators on hand to back him up. Richards catching is improved, too, with the acquisition of Sherman Lollar from the Browns to share the job with veteran Phil Musi. And bidding for attention is 19-year-old '.I. W. Porter, the big kid from Waterloo, la., and Oakland, Calif., high school. The pitching should be adequate and deep, if not star-studded. Saul Rogovin, Bill Pierce, Ken Hoi- combe, Chuck Stobbs -these names stand out. Joe Dobson. Howie Jud- son, Louie Kretlow. or possibly sui-h newcomers as Skinny Brown or Marvin (irissom from Seattle, oi- Al Wiclmar from the Browns, might be. factors. And able relief is to be expected from Luis Aloma or Harry Dorich. Infield Excellent The infield, aside from third, Is excellent. Eddie Robinson at first, Nellie Fox at second, and Chico Carrasquel at short are fixtures, ranging from Robinson's power hilling lo Fox' slashing offense and fine defense, and Carrasquel's brilliance nt short. Big gun of the outfield is the inimitable Saturnino Orestes, Arrieta Armas Minoso, or Minnie, for short. The American League "Rookie of Ihe Year" from Cuba powdered the ball for .326, second high in the league. Jim Busby and Ray Coleman have been regarded as Minoso's regular mates in the outfield, but the returns may not be all in from Al Zarilla or Eddie Stewart. The 1!)5I surprising Sox finished in fourth place, 17 games behind the Yankees. But they were first in team hitting, beating out the potent: Yankees by one percentage point and the Red Sox by four, and they were second by a close margin to Cleveland's great pitching staff in the earned-run department.
