BLmEVILLE, (ARK.) COUfUEU NEWS Clffi ti HELP KLEIN Chicago Looks To Newcomers and Former Philly's Punch for Help| EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is another of the ftrtts of stories from baseball's sprint training camp*, analyzlni the rhanres of virtous teams, to »ln the big league pen- BY F.KSKIXK JOHNSON NBA Senire Writer AVALON, Catnllna Island— Three new pHcliers with flashy records, the expectation Dial Babe Herman again will become the dangerous elouter he was not hsl sea- ton, and Chuck Klein's hard hit- ling of Hie lively ball ore the main 'points upon which Manager Charley-Grimm pins pennant-whining hopes for his Chicago Cubs. • Coming to the uid of veterans Bush. Malone, Hoot. Tinning and Warneke nre three youngsters, hardly dry behind the cars, bin with plenty on the ball. Two of these, Dick Ward and Roy Joiner, were standout liurlers In the Pacific Coast League. The third, ,BI!1 Lee, 105-pounder standing 6 feet 3, won 21 and lost but nine with Columbus tot sea- ton. • • • Ward, In ills first full season with the Los Anycles Angels, pitched 285 innings last year, took part in <3 games, won 25 and lost nine. Joiner, at 25. was the best southpaw in the Pacific Coasl League last year. With Oakland, n filth place club, he won 22 and lo^t 14. Lee, 23-year-old native of r-lp.quemtne, La., has an equally impressive record. With Columbus lust M.'ason he won 21 gnmes and lost nine. This trio should :,;'e n M of action during the summer because of their records and as Grimm says: "P. K. Wrlgley 'wants new faces and younger men on his ball club." • • • Other minor league players who have been added to the Chicago roster during the winter Includ: "three catchers, Waller Goebel, Bui Seebold- and Henry Tale; an up and coming Inflelder, Auglc Galan and George "Tuck" Stalnback, n hard-hitting outfieider obtained last year from Los Angele.s for 175,000. Seebold, best looking ol the catchers," Is !3| Galen and Slulnback have yet to celebrate their 22nd birthdays. Galan, a "turn." hitter, played second for San -Francisco Ittst sea- run. He lilt .356, and ran fit ill almost anywhere In the infield being equally at home at third or short. Stalnrjack. the platinum blond Pacific Coast favorite, played right field last year. In 187 games he hit .335, batted ill 148 runs, stole 19 bases, fielded .950 and .inaggec 264 base hits, including 41 doubles, seven triples and 19 home runs. Just where "Tuck" will fit h in the Bruin outfield remains U be seen. Klki Cuylcr, Rlggs Stcph enson and Babe Herman are back in addition to Chuck Klein, Na tional League batting king, whose purchase is expected to add th punch thai will spell the differ ence between contenders an champions for the Cubs. Hcrniii hit less than .300 for the fits time In hts major league carce lost season and he's rarin' to go. The infield stacks up Just th same as last season, with th addition of Galan. Skipper Grimii devoid of the lumbago that him down last year, and Dolp Camtlli, purchased from Sacra memo last season, will tjike car of first base. Billy Herman wi be at second, Bill Jurges at sho and Woody English and Stnnli Hack at third. Gabby Hartnett will do most the catching, aided by hoMove Gordon Phelps and either of th newcomers, Tate or Seebold. Ta is a likely looking prospect wh played with Montreal last year, where he hit .335 and fielded .919. Despite rumors to the contrary. Charley Grimm still Is "Der Kaptlnk" to the rest ol the squad. Says he: "A lot of baseball people think a big league manager ought to be a master mind with the best results from his club. and I've read In the papers that I'm going to change my tactics and become hard-boiled Charley. But that's out. If the boys gel out of condition, why they just fine themselves by shortening their baseball careers, that's all. "I'm confident thit the Cubs wlU irin the pennant. I look for most of the opposition from New York, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Boston. The Cubs arc stronger by far than last year, and everyone on the team Is In a swell frame of mind to win ball gamps.'
