April 1 — (A>) — The Boston Red Sox could win the pennant for optimism in any baseball league. They have been hit harder by Ihe war than any other club in the majors, yet they figure they me a cinch to finish at least second in the American League again this year. Since Ihe 1042 season closed the Red Socket's have lost their entire first siring outfield, Ted Williams, IJorninie DiMaggio and Lou Finney; the rookie shortstop sensation of the season, Johnny Pesky; and ii pair of pHeheis who combined to win 20 games, Bill Btitland ant. Broadway CMarlie Wagner. That should be sufficient to stagger any aggregation, but it ban only served to make the Bostons bounce back with new determination. The Sox were the first team to announce they were going to train at home this spring. Before Commissioner Kcnesaw Landis and the magnates established the boundary of the Potomac and Ohio rivers. Tom Vawkoy, millionaire owner of the Red Sox, had settled upon the Tufts University baseball cage in suburban Boston for the Red Sox training base. This decision was supported superbly by the players, who reported in incredibly good shape for Ihe curtailed conditioning program they will have in advance of their j American League inaugural April 21. Practice started March 22 and the club as a whole looks as good as it would have after three weeks r.f the usual leisurely processing in Florida. The result is that the team is in fine fittle for its first exhibition game day after tomorrow with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Brooklyn and feeling cocky about what is to come thereafter.
