Sally League Find Lets Dodgers Down With Two Hits THTJBSDAY, SEPTEMBER u, 1939 Opener Cievclana's nrclrallcr, who out- Today's Sport Parade By HENRY McLKMORK Three Children, One Birthday Cmco, cal. (UP)-Thc stcrkliss arranged it so that «-hen Mrs. Jean Besert celebrates tire birthdays ot her three daughters she can do It all on the same dny. Daughter No, 1 was boni on Aug. 25 five years "go; daughter No. 2 was b:rn on Aug. 26 two years ago, und daujh- tcr No. 3 was born (in Aug. 26 of this vcar. -' :. By onoitCiE KIIWSEY United Press stall Correspondent NEW YOHK, Sept. 14.—Deacon Dill McKechnle found his third starting pitcher lo go with Bucky Walters and Paul Derringer just iu lime. Afier the Reds had gone 19 games without anybody but Walters or Derringer pitching a victory. Gene (Junior) Thompson, (he big blond riglit-linnder who was In (lie Sally League Inst season, came through (o bcost Cincinnati's pennant stock several notches. Thompson has been flirting on the edge of arrival as a major league pitcher all season. He arrived with n bang unexpectedly yesterday when he hurled the Reds to a 3-0 shutout over the Dodgers. He gave up only two lilts—one of them a bunt beat out by Dixie Walker in the eighth mul the other a single by Johnny Hudson in (he third—and net a man reached second. Only five got as far DS first. Wo on hits, two on walks and one on Billy Wcrber's error. It was Thompson's ninth victory in his freshman year, and it presaged n brilliant future. McKechnie hns been predicting'nil along that Thompson, had the stuff "lo become a star and that all he needcd'was experience. He's v on)y 22 and it's quite n jump from the class B Sally League to a major league starter's job iiv one season. Last lime anyone except Walters or Derringer won • a game for the Reds was AHg. 21 when John Nig- gellng, the veteran rookie from Indianapolis, beat the Phillies, 7-0. Since then Walters ami Derringer have been carrying the Reds all nlcne. The Reds bent Hugh Casey, one of the Dodgers' best Ditchers. Wcr- ber's single and Goodman's double scored a run-in the first. Bergcr's 12th homer added another in the second. A hit baseman, a sacrifice, and Weber's single accounted for the third tally. The Cardinals clung to their pennant hopes by slugging out n 10-9 win over the Phillies and remaining 3 la games behind ^Ihc Reds. Joe Medwick's homer with one en in the eighth clinched the victory after the Phils had forged ahead with a two-run rally in .their half of the eighth. The Giants and Pirates broke even, New York winning the opener, 2-0, en Harry Ounibert's two hitter and Pittsburgh taking the nightcap, 7-4. Hank Lclber paced the Cubs to a 15-4 victory over the Bees slugging out two homers and l.vo singles for a perfect day at bat. Lei- bcr drove in six runs and serrecl four. Bob Feller won his 21st gnine, pitching Cleveland to a 9-4 victory over thn Yankees..He beat his closest rival. Red Ruffing, who was trying fcr his 22nd win. Ol 1 Mose Grove copped No. 14 as the Red Sox nosed out the Tigers. 1-0. He gave up only foilr hits and fanned seven. The White Sex scored a double victory over Washington, 3-1 (11 innings) and 4-2 (8 innings, .darkness). Ted Lyons outpitched Ken Chase In Ihe opener for his 13th win. Jack Knott copped the nigiit- cnp. • The Browns slugged out an 11-3 triumph over the Athletics, nHh Jack Gramer going the route while St. Louis rapped out 11 hitsj Yesterdays hero — Bob Feller, what would be your estimate of he amount of mincy contributed to the educational institutions of this country by the owners of nro- les.slonal lootball loams? Twenty cents? No, that's a little high. Ten cents? That's closer, but still a Jlltlc steep. My o»n guess wculd be three zeros. It seems (o ine (hat the pro owners should be (he heaviest contributors • to col- dege endowment;. Year after year, year after year without charging a dime f-.r the service, Ihe colleges of ihi s coimtry turn out the football players who make Die pro game pcssllile. They take in youngsters who' know nothing and for three years provide (hem with coaching, equipment, medical treatment, and then turn them over to the professional entrepreneurs. The crop of football players is as steady and undimln- Ishcd as that of potatoes. More irnp;r(ant, the colleges turn out the potential pro material already publicized. By (he time a good football player gets through callege life name fa known to every football customer In the country. This is a tremendous help lo the l)i-o promoters. No other sports business gels such a windfall. 'In baseball it takes years of careful, thoughtful, and expensive publicity to spread Ihe fame of n Gehrig, n Feller, or a DIMaggia to the far corners of the, nation. Tlie same is true in hockey, polo, tennis and all the other spirts. But the Hed Granges, the Bronko Nagur- skis, the Ernie Nevers, Ihe Whizzer Whites and the Davey O'Briens are box-office draws from the very first day. My belief is that the colleges are suckers for not making the pro promoters pay something for their ready-made material, particularly those small colleges whose eendowments arc meager and who could use a little ready cash to patch up the president's house, get the dean a new desk lamp, and hire a French professrv whose accent didn't sound as if he had acquired it as a boy in East Brooklyn. , How to get the money-?. Well, put the lostball players nnr der contract and reserve the' right to bargain for them ivlien they graduate and start eyeing .the pro Held. A college could hold out until it get a bonus. Or the colleges could enter into a working agreement with a pro team— become a sort of "farm," that is—and sell their players direct. There are any number of ways tlie colleges c;uld cash in on the players they turn out each year. • - i Of course, the pro owners might answer this by establishing 1 colleges of (heir own, where young men could major In punting, passing' blocking and Die such, Tim Jtfara' University, for example. Or Art Rooncy College. Or Dan Tapping's select, finishing school for young men weighing 195 or over. FoolbaJTNews Weekly StaHs With 1st Games PERNDALE, Mich.
