Philadelphia at,Brooklyn. by HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NBA Service One of those crying major league owners, who professes to wonder why the Yankee run away in the American Lepgue, and the National is called another minor, and who tells the customers that he would like to do something about it but doesn't know where lo look for talent, might buy Frederick What's Going on Here, Boys? No, the gentleman in .while, is ^not atternpting:to imitate an ostrich. He happens" to be Bob Gregory, the referee, whose job it was to see that all was on .the fair and square in a wrestling match between George (K. O.) Kbverly and King Kong Kashey, heavyweights,, in Los Angeles. Charles Hutchinson from the Seattle Indians. Now, don't let hi mtell you that Freddie Hutchinson can't pitch. He already is crowding the 25-game victory mark in the Class AA Pacific, Coast League. Hutchinson, a big, strong kid, is a corking hitter, too. He swats the ball avagely and on a line. He"'d be an excellent pinch-hitter . . . another Red Ruffing in the dugout. The club urchasing him would have plenty of time to realize on its investment, for Hutchinson is only 19. He graduated from a 'Seattle high school Hutchinson has more than baseball only a few weeks ago. ability. He is one of the few ball players touched by bucks office magic. He bent the Seals in San Francisco the other night before 18,215 paying guests which was only 785 less than the record for the city at the Golden Gate established ,'Vlien the new"Seals Stadium was unveiled on opening day of 1931. So why doesn't a major league club buy Hutchinson? That is an easy question to answer. Those badly in need of pitching material simply are too cheap. Clubs with elaborate farm systems prefer to develop their own players. Used to signing youngsters before they are dry behind the ears, they dislike to admit thatan independently-owned minor league uitfit has picked up a great athlete. Of the clubs without widespread minor league affiliations, only the New York Giants and Boston Red Sox have in recent years shown any inclination of being willing to pay a worth-while price for a performer. And then, Bill Terry of the Polo Grounders, who has yet to prove himself any kind of an organizer, has waited until the last minute to turn to the needy Phillies or those wholesole dealers in players, the Cardinals and Yankees. Disappointed at the result of fabulous deals, Tom Yawkey of the Red Sox decided to develop his won. Hutchinson hasn't been sold to a big league club because his owner, Emil Sick, a brewer, asks $100,000 for his contract . . . and doesn't have to sell it. Sick undoubtedly would take less, but it is obvious that to date he has not been made a satisfactory offer. It won't belongbeforeHutchinson is in the big show. It would be unfair to keep him in the minors, but no more unfair tha nthe major league magnates' attitude toward minor league owners. Hutchinson affords the Midas touch to club owners of every Pacific Coast League city. Joe DiMaggio, in his coast days, drew fans into the parks as Hutchinson is doing now. The argument has been raised tha if owners flatly refused to peddle sucl best sellers as Hutchinson and DiMaggio, the smaller loops would prosper accordingly, and there would be no lack of attendance, an egro that stalks every keeper of auditor's books in lesser wheels. True it is that if DiMaggio were still a member of the Seals his feats would •populate ball yards of. the golden slope in goodly numbers, as the freshman Hutchinson's prowess draws large crowds wherever he appears. But what advocates of retaining minor league stars in the minors forget, and what major league owners take ad vantage,, of is. baseball-, economics. Most minor league clubs exist not Prescott to Play on Wolves Will Open 1938 Season at Home This Week-End Frescolt has this year a new field and. School "Curly Wolves" will start the state football wheel to rolling Friday night when they square off against the Amity Rams on the local field.' The game starts at 8 p. m. Frescott hs this yer new field and the brightest prospects for a winning team in the past several years. The enthusiasm of the local fans toward supporting the team is better than for a good many years past- Coaches Storey and Smith have for the past seven days been holding two workouts daily and the team is rapidly, rounding into form. The probable starting line will average approximately 183 pounds,, the starting backfield will average 162 pounds. Little is known about the strength of the OFpositiori,.but in the past Coach Thrash of the Amity High School has produced some mighty good teams 'and this year should prove no exception.

I'm glad that Emil Sick doesn't have to sell Freddie Hutchinson, arid.hope he holds out until he gets southing in the neighborhood of. the $100)000 he, asks.
