He received 10 first place votes, but his other votes were scattered down as far as sixth place. Vernon Stephens, shortstop of the pennant-winning Browns, was third with 193 votes and George Stirn-weiss, the Yanks' base-stealing champion, fourth with 129. Dick Wakerield, the Tigers' slugging outfielder, who sparked their sensational late season rise, was a bang-up fifth with 128 votes.

Thirty-four players got at least one point in the voting and among the 35. Spence, hard-hitting Senator outfielder, was the only selection from the Washington team.

Hal Newhouser Named Tops In American League NEW YORK, N. Y. rial Ncw-houser, Detroit's great left hander, has been selected as the most valuable player in the American League by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, who previously had named Martin Marion, St. Louis Cardinals' shortstop, as the top man in the National League. We can find, no fault with either selection and we are glad to note that the writers did not blindly pick a player from each pennant winning team and let it go at that. Marion, of course, was the sparkplug of the Cardinals and Newhous-er was the pitching ace of his league. To get a true slant on their value to their respective teams we need only ask ourselves this question: Where would the Cards have finished without Marion or the Tigers without Newhouser? The voting was conducted on the bases of 14 points for first place, nine for second place. On this basis, Newhouser received 236 votes from 7 firsts, 10 seconds and (I thirds.
