Fla., April 11 (/p) —Babe Ruth, who admits that he's still a "mighty sick man," went out today and caught a 50-pound, six-foot, eight-inch sailfish after, a 30-minute fight. "It felt like 300." he said on his return from the excursion to the Gulf stream. This was explainable when the fish was hauled aboard the charter boat. It had thrown the hook and the wire leader had "lassoed" him around the tail. EXHIBITION BASEBALL Washing-ton (A) mo 010 000—2 6 2 Philadelphia (X) 310 003 OOx—5 9 i Masterson. Candini.

April 11 (jp)—Jackie Robinson, Negro-Brooklyn infielder, had the unique c'astinction of batting in three runs although he failed to hit safely in five trips to the plate in his major league debut today as his Dodger mates humbled the N-w York Yankees 1-1-6 m the first of a three-game week-end exhibition series. The flashy Montreal alumnus, trying desperately to answer the pleas of 24.237 Ebbets Field fans for a base knock, managed to connect solidly twice, flying out to deep left in the third and lining put to center in a wild li-run fifth inning. Each time a man scored easily from third after the catch A total of 15 Dodgers batted in the fifth, six hitting safely, three reaching base via walks and two on a pair of errors by shortstop Phil Ri/.zuto.

Avrll 32, 1947. FIVE THE Colley-See-U m OF SPORTS \Vilh all the teams in the Independent League starting their workouts prior to the opening of '.he season on May 4 word hat; j reached this column that players who have appeared on profession- teams as late as last year but who are HOW not connected in any way with a pro organization will not be allowed to participate in Independent League play this This writer has never read the by-laws or the constitution of the league, but with so many young- siers breaking into* the game and qu'te a number that an> coming out for trials hoping to pick some tine points of ihe game and improve their phiy it really seems. crazy that boys who have had! some pro experience are barred | from the league. Play in the ledependem League is expected to be better than last season and play will have to be better to attract the fans to the Rames. Several new teams have been added to the circuit which will help, but if they don't take the bars down on boys who have been out in professional baseball in other years it seems that the league will be working against its own cause. When a lormer' member of the Intei-staLe League and especially onn who is well known to sport fans in this city comes through, we are always ready to give him a pat on the hack. To fans who arc following Ralph LaPointe's bid for a berth with the Phillies, tins should be welcome news. In yes- terdjiy's game against the Washington Senators which the Phils won by a 5 to 2 score, LaPointe broke loose in the first inning when he walked and stole second atxl tallied on Ennis' single that put the Phils out front and from there ou in were never headed. Brooklyn fans had their first good look at Jackie Robinson yesterday when the Negro star appeared against the New York Yankees. He failed to get a hit but did drive in three runs. Manager Sukeforth has stated that he plans to give Robinson a thorough trial at first base and if he fails to make it, he will he used in a utility role either at second, short or third. Sukeforth feels that Robinson can play any of the infield positions and he kept him in for the full game because he wanted Jackie to get the fee] of playing in the big leagues. He would rather have Robinson get over that nervous feeling now. rather than wait for the regular season, so it looks as if Robinson 5s in until he proves that his playing is not helping the club. KmiT Brinksy, one of the most Popular outfielders ever lo <=port an Owl uniform, is working out will, the locals just to test himself ii he feels that he ca:i nuke the grade with the Williamspon team lie will report to that club otherwise he plans to return to his home in Pennsylvania and give up the (lea of playing pro ball and satisfy himself with holding down a berth with some of the semi-pro teams playing in his section of the COUH try over the weekend.-. Hrinsky had tough going during the years he served with Uncle Sum's forces overseas ant] for that reason he feels that he must test himself out and see if he can pick up where h e left off five years ago. Yesterday he was galloping around the field, running, throwing and hitting like some kid Ju^t starting out and it is the hope of every fan who watched Emil com« through in the field and at bat for t^e Owls that he will find himself ,<nd help Williamsport in their quest of a flag. Brinsky is a credit to the game and let's hope baseball does not lose him. Lawn mowers will soon replace those birds feeding stations, but anyway thanks for the co-operation during the winter months. . . . Good morning.
