The tnlk then went directly tij the subject o; runs, a matter about which the Browns have been uro-ssly m-sim- fu! in the last few years. Younc Alan Strange, Ihe short- slop boughl from Hollywood, is Hie center of Hornsby.s hopes, both on the left side of the diamond where the Browns litive l>ecn weak and al Ihe plnlc. "He hit .324 in llic- Coast leafme anil lie's n young man ivlio Jifces to play ball. To succeed in this garni-,, you've sol lo play in itie day league. You know whai l mean."

But when we took Puccinelll ant! 1'epper from Rochester i ve got just what jw wanted since taking over the club this year, "I know from the Cardinals 1 chain store. And then those two players realize they're Belting a chanco with a real outfit like Hie Browns l expect them to show more than they ever did." Hornsby almost had the ca.<e won. Porty-five minutes liad passed and he had proved not only thai the Browns were a ball team, but that (hey were in tile American League. Bui wait— "And what have we got to beat?" he asked himself as we started for the elevator. ."The Red Sox spent, a lot of money, but it looks to me like ail they gol was Grove. Tnc While Sox? Take away Simmons and they are no belter ball club than we are. "Cleveland hasn't got such a hot ball team, bul lhal short park ought to help Averill this year. • * * "You know the race in the American League has been three teams, the Yanks, A's and Senators. Tire Yanks haven't helped their weak pitching staff any. as I see It. That evens them up with the second division contenders. "Mack has some good young b.ill players, but he hasn't gol as good pitching as we have. The Senators didn't look like a great team to me last year and showed it when the Giants took them. "It'.'i going to be a new kind of race this year, and the Browns have a chance to sneak through next to the rail. Don't think that I am goofy enough to pick a pennant for us, but we're going to be nobody's pushover."
