PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLR, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Carry Boston Bees' Hopes Uncovering More Wallop Is Casey Stengel's Acute Problem BY HARRY GRAYSON Sports Editor, NKA Service BRADENTON, Fin., March 10.— "That's more nms than (he club .scored all ! as I season," cracked tlie Inimitable Casey Stengel, as his 35 Boston Bees crowed the plate in single file- for newsreel men. That's Stengel's problem —scoring- runs. When lie moved to Cincinnati, wily Will McKcclinle left Casey ol Kansas City a .splendid defensive club. Right now blond Gene Moore Is the Bees' chief stinger, and this long-range left-hand hitter baited only .283 in 1937. - Stengel frankly tells you that he hasn't the slightest idea where additional punch is to came from unless Max Edward West crashes the outfield or Robert Wayne Kalilo supplants the agile Rabbit Warstler at shortstop. West and Kalile mny do. West lilt .300 in his second year with the Mission Coasters last term, and Kahle compiled a- .300 average for Indianapolis at the tender nge of 21. While he may be totally unable to solve National League slants, a. .336 average in the Cotton States League in 1936 Is further evidence that Kahle may be headed somewhere. He came up as a third baseman, but Is being drilled nt, shortstop, which position he played when he broke In with Danville In 1934. But Stengel, who was paid 518,009 last year for not managing the Brooklyn Dodgers, prefers lo talk nlxnit his pitching. The one-time laxlcab driver who studied to be ft dentist and wound up hilling world series home inns for John McQraw hopes to do a comeback ns a; manager with a staff built around Ihree amazing veterans- Jim Turner, Lou Fette, and Daniel Knowles MacFayden. Dig Up Old Hands Turner had spent 12 years in the minors and Fette nine when Jack McCallister, who once guided the Cleveland Indians, plucked them out of the American Association. But they quickly made up for lost lime by becoming National League standouts In their lirst campaign In the big show. Each bagged 20 engagements. Turner's earned run average. 2.38, was lowest In the senior circuit, and Pette wasn't far behind with 2.88. Jf this pair keeps going and the bespectacled MacFayden cnn get back in the IT-game class in which lie placed himself in I93ti, enemy swatsmiths seldom will get fat against the Bees. Scout McCallister is accountable for another oldtimer, John Niggel- ing. This right-hander's record with Kansas City and Newark was nothing about which to get excited but McCallister declares that he flashed more stuff in relief roles for the Bears than Turner and Fette showed him when he recommended their purchase. The aggregation's success with well-seasoned slingers who had been sidetracked in the minors last fall caused Bob Qufnn to bring in Milburn Shoffner after that 32- year-old left-hander had bagged 17 games for Scranton. He finished exceptionally well with the Bees. Dick Errickson. a tall ana young right-hander from the Scranton farm, is the talk of the camp Willie Weir, stocky left-hander revealed streaks of brilliance in stepping directly from college to the Bee hive in 1936, but hurt His arm last trip. The. C ] U b also has pitchers of parts in Frank Gaoler, erstwhile wisecracker of the New York Giants, Jra Hutchtnson, and John Lanning, all right-handers The Bees should obtain as good or better catching as any club In the business from Alfonso Lopez. Ray Mueller, and Johnny Riddle, up from Indianapolis. And looking to the future, they have Stanley; Andrews, a 20-year-old Lynn 1 Mass., lad who hit .299 for vllle in mi. DiMag' Should Improve The infield' Is great defensively with Elburt Fletcher at shortstop Tony Cuccinello at second, Warstler at shortstop, and Gilbert English at third, but the latter topped them all at bat laslseason with .289. Cuccinello hit .211, Fletcher .247, and Warstler .223. Joe Walsh, up from Rocky Mount with a batting mark of .296, is said to move nicely at shortstop, but he probably is a year or two away and Is in Boston having what is feared to be a trick knee treated Vince DiMaggio Is one of the slickest center-fielders in baseball and Stengel looks to see him improve his batting- mark of .255 n ow that he Is accustomed to National League ways. Roy Johnson is a potential ,330 hitler, and should improve the .277 he compiled last season. The Tacoma Indian has stolen 133 bases in the 1136 major league games that he has played in nine campaigns. Turner and Felte pitched the stlngless Bees to fifth place—just one game behind U]C Cardinals In 1437. ,„ j Tftelr. steady right arms and pitching intelligence may enable .Jim Turner Alms for 20 more [Research Al Minnesota U. | Shows Boy Athletes May "Burn Out" 11V FRANK IWSSK 1'iiilcil Press stuir Oorn-s]>oml:'i]l WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1038 . | lieu- is a. s yet not until nceiinu* \ i HI it , Information about elfrcts of ftl«- Ark-lHO Meets Ictics on Hint vital or»an.
