Republican Mayor Fred Emery Season and Supervisor Homer fcoyd, a Democrat, will try to hit the pitch, city Manager uonaia Wolfer is the starting catcher, And in addition to the political sideshow, pre-game music and flag-raising ceremonies are plan ned. The program, to be emceed by Tom Wallace, la scheduled to begin at 7:45 p.m. . When the ball game gets under way, Jerry Juzek, a right-handed veteran of eight previous pitching seasons, will take the mound for the Cowboys. The Cowboys will show off a new ball club over the one which staggered through the Southwest International league last season. New Players Two new players arrived yesterday to swell the 1952 roster to 23. The new players are Wayne Parsons, a 6'1" , former Oregon aomi-pro player who is just out of the marine corps. For the Mar ine Recruit Depot last year, the 2'JC-pound outfielder hit, .345 and drove in 60 runs in 7G games. He may move into a starting center-field position in the Cowboys lineup tonight. The other new player Is Willie Sheelor, a lG5-pound second base man who was sent here from the St. Louis Browns' training camp at Thomasville, Ga. Sheelor formerly played with " the Chicago Red Sox semi-pro club. Leading off in the Tucson batting order will be Tony Barnett, eweet-fielding, light-hitting shortstop for the Cowboys last season. He'll be at short again tonight. Working at the other half of the double play combination will be Itookie Wayne Stockstill or Sheelor. Tony Morales, the school-teaching ball player, will come down from Eloy where he is coaching high school baseball to play first base tonight. Morales had - a good season in his pro debut last year with the Cowboys. He was' a former All-American first baseman for the University of Arizona. Veteran At Third At third base will.be the veteran Kenny Richardson, a former Pacific Coast leaguer who is in his first season with Tucson. Art Billings, a veteran of five professional seasons, will probably start behind the plate. Billings was out of ball last year, but previously played with Ponca City, Lafayette in the Evangeline league, Modesto, Cal., El Paso in the A-T in 1949 and for Wen-a tehee in the Western International in 1950. The Cowboys outfield will probably have Manager Don Jameson in right field, giant Bob Carter in left field and either Parsons or Bill Scopetone in center. Jameson, J vno piayea lor iuma last year and was one of the league's better hitters, makes his home debut tonight. Carter is the 6'3", 230-pound rookie who hit four for five Monday night and Saturday atl Star Sporte WEDNESDAY in Local Campaign; field in the 1952 home season will toss the first ball of the homered as a pinch-hitter. Scope- tone is also a veteran of many pro seasons. He has been batting in the No. 4 spot for the Cowboys. Prexy Optimistic Cluh President C. B. Richards said yesterday that he is looking forward to a draw of more than 100,000 fans this season for the Cowboys' 70 home games. We are going to have a first division ball club throughout the season," Richards said. "We will do everything possible to .keep it at top strength. Richardson also told of plans for giving away 67,000 gallons of gasoline and 70 gold watches to fans through the season. Pacific Coast Loop Results...

Campanella, who clouted three of the 11 Dodger hits against left- nanuer. warren spahn, delivered a bases-loaded single while the Dodgers were doing all of their scoring in tne fifth inning. The Dodgers came uo to that frame trailing by a run, the result of switch-hitter Sam Jethroe's right-handed four-base smash over the left field fence in the third Inning. Spahn had given up only three hits before Gil Hodges opened the fifth by drilling a single to left field. Carl Furillo followed with a hard smash that Second Baseman Billy Reed did well to knock down. Third Strike Bunt Thereupon Spahn got Roe on a third strike foul bunt and Pee Wee Reese lined out to right. Cox then scored Hodges with a single to left. Spahn loaded the bases by walking Jackie Robinson to set the stage for Campanella's game-winning single to right field. It was hit so sharply that Cox and Furillo merely had to romp across the plate. The Braves registered their second counter in the bottom of the fifth when, with two out. Earl Torgeson lashed a two-bagger into right field and Sid Gordon, fol lowed with a tingle in the same general direction. Roe had little trouble with the Tribesmen from then on. He set down the last 13 rival batters to face him.

A's, YANKS RAINED OUT PHILADELPHIA, April 15 m Shibe Park records which date back to 1925 fail to show an open ing day cancellation for the Philadelphia Athletics, but 89-year-old Connie Mack says there was one. Mack couldn't remember the date, but he was sure today's Athletics-New York Yankees opening day rainout wasn't the first here. If the weatherman cooperates. the two clubs will go through with the initial day's ceremonies to morrow. Little will be changed but the date. Mayor Joseph S. Clark will handle the first ball throwing duties. Vic Raschi still has the pitching assignment for the Yank ees and Alex Kellner is still the Athletics' nominee.
