f AGE SIX MAY SHIFT BLYTIIEV1LLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Champions Must Train, Too Terry Expects Old Giant Shortstop To Be Back In Form ,For Season BY STUART OAMRROX Vniled Press Sports Kdltor NEW YORK IUH)—A redirii to the last Infield combination «wrt by tlie Intc John. McGraw is expected to lie made, by the world; champion New York Glnnls during the fast-approaching big league ba.^eball season. Tills combination would flni! Manager Bill Terry nt flral, Hughle Criu ai second, Travis Jackson nt shortstop, nnd Johnny Vergcz at third. The key man in the combination is Jackson, who was torc- ed out of the game last season by trouble with his legs. Reports from the south have him a vastly improved man who is handing himself well, is In fine condition, and covering plenty of fielding territory. The one man who would half to 5ee such n rornmion Is mainly Ryan, sparkplug of the Giants when they won the National League i>ennnnl and continued on 10 Hie world title. Terry, boss of the Giants, feels thai Ryan shouldn't mind taking to the bench for another season or two. "Ryan is young," Tony explains, "and his big chnnce Ls lo come Inter, providing that Jackson's legs • hold out okeli. It's obvious that it would be poor baseball lo sacrifice the power we cnn achieve by using Critz, Jackson and Verge?, to get . Ryan in at short. We need that •power too much. For one thing, we need the hitting ot Vcrgez, who made 19 homers in 1933 and was one of the most dependable scorers In the league." At first it was expected that, the uncertainty ns lo the makeup of the Giants would center around third base with Jackson nnil Verges fighting for the place. Ryan's brilliant record in the Insi race made It seem certain he was due to stay In the first lineup, although there were some baseball men wtio were willing to predict Blondy would be scn.1 downstream. This prediction was based upon the be- 'lief that his fielding mistakes came when they mattered little and upon the fact that he scarcely hit •his weight. Ryan didn't qnlle reach the 250 mark. Jackson came to the Giants from Lltile Rook ln-1924 nnd took . the place of Dave Bancroft, who .had been traded to the Boston Braves to become manager of that club. U wasn't long before Travis was regarded as the one great shortstop of the majors, and kept up the pace until 1832. when his knees began to give him trouble. KIIGHELMEErc srait iimiT, LINER!
