SLYTHEVILLp, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Golden Miller»a Jump Ahoad American .Loop's Leading Songster Expects His Boys To Be In Race EDITOR'S NOTE: This b Mi other of a scrips of articles from the big league training ramps, an- alyiln; the chanrrs of earh team in Ihc cominj pneninl races. BY KRSKINK JOHNSON NBA Sen-Ice Writer PASADENA, April 3.—'Hie gentleman known as Low was in on optimistic mood. Sitting on the bench under a boiling California suii he dripped perspiration and enthusiasm. Before him, 38 base- bailers of assorled sizes and varying experience, lhe largest group ever taken io a Chicago While Sox spring induing camp, cavorted noisily on lhe greensward. Said Manager Ponseca: "We will be more formidable this yenr, flml il a couple of our young pitchers come through we may be lhe surprise In wliat looks like n free- for-all pennant "scramble." » • * Thai owner Louis Comlskey Is really serious about landing in the first division for a change Is borne out by the large party on hand at the Brookslde Park training slle. here; Fonscca's genuine enlhuslasm over his club's prospects, and last, but not leasl, the honesl-to-gosh pepper displayed by the hired hands of the ensemble. The boys are oat to win. Predicting a hopeful future. Manager Ponseca citu the additions of Dig George Earnshaw, right-handed fasl ball merchant who played a prominent pitching role during the championship days of the Athletics, and Henry "Keke" Bonzura, slugging first sacker from Dallas, who may turn out lo be the year's outstanding major league find. Earnshaw was dissatisfied last year, but he comes lo lhe 1'ale Hose "100 per cent happier" and with high hopes of winning at least 20 games. Working on the same team with three old cronies and poker victims of his Athletic days. Mule Haas, Jimmy Dykes and Al Simmons, may be just what the doctor ordered for George. - Bonura is a real nnd. Despite his 205 pounds, 'he covers flrat base with almost unbelievable ease. -In the Texas League last year he fielded .994,'hit '.351 and led the league In scoring, driving in runs, homers and total bases. Boiinra, who takes a mean cut al the ball and who has hit several four bag- gers so far In spring training, should land as a regular at first, says Fonseca; who 'may see a few games there himself. 'Looking at tlie rest of the team, we find Joe Sullivan Hie only holdover on the catching staff. From Detroit has come John Pasek, from St. Louis Mervln Shea and from Topeka, Morgan .Snyder. a rookie with an impressive .319 batting average. It's a tossup, says Foaseca, whether Snyder will slick, while the others are due to be carried through the season. With the exception of Bonura, tlte infield will be dominated by- such veterans as Luke Appllng. Jimmy Dykes. Ponseca, Mlnter Hayes and Ralph Kress, red-liead- sd husky. Two rookies, Conrad Flippen, late of Arizona University, and Joe Chamberlln. with Waterloo, la., in 1933, are' out for J utility role, they are not' cxpecU ed to stick with lhe club. The pitching staff will be buill around Earnshaw, Ed 'Durham, Milton Gaston. Joe Heving, Sam Jones and Ted Lyons, all veterans. Stlne, up from San Francisco In the coast league wliere lie won 12 and lost 14; Phil Sullivan, who spent part of last season with the Pale Hose, and John Pomorski who won — and lost 1 with Montreal last year, are considered by Fonseca as the best looking of the young bulb tossers in camp. • * • When not singing "Happy Dayi Are Here Again," Manager Ponseca predicts an exciting pennant race. "I believe." says Lew, "that the American League is due for one .ol its greatest races. All of the sec ond-divlsion clubs of last season hte Red Sox, Tigers, Browns and White Sox, have strengthened atid the first division teams do not ap pear to be as strong." An interesting sidelight of th White Sox spring activities her Is the do-or-die attitude taken b big A] Simmons, baseball's seconi Highest peld player. "I'm on the .spot," says 91, "lit? no other ball player this season T've just got to have a good yea There has been so much talk aboi the White Sox shortening th fences for my benefit that if don't hit 40 home runs they'll Hiving me the bird."
