"• Joe McCarthy, left, congratulate Joe Cronln of (he Boston Sox on taking fl vc comecmive games from the New,York Yankees Today's SportParade \ By netsij McLemor* NEW YORK, July 11 (UP)-A careful study or the batting orders or today's nil-star affair between lie American and National'Leagues (•Yankee Stadium has 'convinced le that the'gahic will be the long- st in the history of baseball.' Under the rules each team must s retired nine times during the ame, and you..needn't try to con- fince me that there is enough iltching strength on earth to ae- omplish this in : thc space ot-one '.fter'noon. My guess .is thai the tttchers"\vin he trying to got evcry- ody'out the day after tomorrow. 'for, one am going'.prepared for long stay. My Japanese boy, Ezra, as packed me a kit containing' n eadtng lamp, a sleeping roll, twn ounds ot jerked beef, n gallon of irinking \vnlcr, a box of pemml- an, and n book for Ed Barrow in Pl>recintion of his hospitality. Tnke (he American League but- ing order, for example. It starts off with Doc Cramer mm fled Rolfe and gets increasingly detractive move clown the Inc. After Doc and Red have spun i pitcher's cars around with • u air of drives, up come Joe Di- ilaggio. Bill Dickey, Hank Grcen>erg, Joe Crontn, George Selkirk nd Joe Gordon, all of whom are as dangerous ns n professional nlfe thrower- in a hardware store. The last batter in the American neup, the "weak sister" of the cl. Is Red Runing, and he hn.s 11 ntting average that reads like--a hi Beta Kappa's grades, Paul Derringer is the National e-igne pitcher who will be called n to open ngnlnst this lineup, and c is likely to find It harder .to Swat than a lawsuit. He'll prob- bly be looking around for his awyer, wanting to enter a charge f assault and tottery against the merlcan Leaguers, before he mci- ifuily gets the Shepherd's crook rom Manager Gnbby Hnrlnelt. Bill Lee is scheduled to be the econd National League pitcliA', nd the report Is that starting locks have been placed in the vill pen to enable him to get "oft n fast start when he is called relieve Derringer. Whit Wyntt the man who will go to Lee's nid, nd Jesse Owens is reported to ave been training him In getting IT the mark with little delay. The American League pitchers ace an equally dangerous tnsk in Clicking to the National League lineup, which' packs the destructive power ot a broadside from H. M. S. Hood.. When you start working 611 ft lineup that starts with Hack nnd follows with Vaughan, Oil,: Medwlck, McCor- mlck, Mlice, Arnovich, Lombard! and Herman you had belter have a Red Cross kit close nt hand and be well skilled In the handling of n tourniquet and have answer to contusions nnd abrasions on the Up of your tongue. I ikin't know what the nll-slnr players gel for their elTorLs, but I believe It, Is eilher n watch or a ring. Whatever it- is, the pitchers should get three or four because Ihcy nrc the tables wlio have the .toughest jobs, In the three Innings lie works, an all-star .pitcher has to work his fingers to the bone putting enough stuff on the ball to keep from getting his head knocked off. Batter up! And may the better learn win. No, I tnke that back, because I'm betting on Ihe National Leaguers.
