PALM SPFUNGS^-The name Edgar Leon Kirk- j *patrick is probably the least recognized of all the ones \ pa the^Ahgel roster at this date, but anyone who has 1 'watched this pink-cheeked IS-year-o!d from Glendora ~is convinced it wBl be known prominently for many ·,;yearsto come. , ' t . : , ; . ' ' ' : ' . " ' · " . ' ' · ' -'' , jj; Under the new bonus rule. 1 Kirkpatrick must b« car- ··- ' - -,.' ried on the Angel dub this ?*^jl ' season," but' skipper BQ1 LV-.-j Rigney Isn't upset despite Ed's tender age. That boy can hit any kind of pitching anywhere. I'm convinced," lauded Rigney. "Look at what he's doing to major league pitching this spring." Look; indeed. Kirkpatrick at last glance was swatting a cool J18. ' la fact.' Kirkpatrick's brief professional career is i brilliant study in. gleaming batting averages. ^After graduating from Glendora High School last June, Ed played at San Jose and Quad Cities.'where his respective batting marks were .354 and -Ml. . ' · The only problem con- '· fronting Rigney Is where to play his beardless phenom. ; Originally a catcher (and that's how he's_ positioned on \ the rosterX Ed leaves something to be desired as a major » league receiver. He has played first base and the outfield. ·^ but thiis far has performed defensively as if he were wear- j ing a boxing glove on each hand. _' "Eventually, I've got to work him into some position," / said Rigney, "because I want that bat of his In my lineup." ; Chances are that Ktrkpatrick's bat win be in the ^1963 lineup chiefly in pinch-hitting roles, which is quite · a unique (and important) assignment for an 18-year-old. i ' , KIRKPATRICK HAS two attributes which delight ,' Rigney because they're usually impossible to find in a ,' rookie. He's accepted by the. veterans and he's as cnn- ) fident as a Willie Mays or Stan MusiaL. ', I saw an Indication of the former during a ride on the *, players' bus from Sccttsdale to Phoenix: a few days ago. · Veterans Joe Kcppe and Billy Moraa were kidding the ( pants off Kirkpa trick-rand the kid loved it In most cases, 1 ,' rookies either get the cold shoulder from veterans or snide ; remarks. ." -, In regards (o Kirkpatiick's confidence, Rigney com; l ments: "This kid goes cp to bat convinced he's going to ' . get a hit. You throw a Spahn, Drysdale or Burdette against · him and he's not a bit worried. Most rookies flinch al just · the mention of a top flight pitcher." Additionally, Kirkpatrick has so much enthusiasm ·he's actually a danger around the dugout If he should · fail to get a hit, hell slam his batting helmet in any di- \rection. Already this spring he has conked three team- ·, mates in the dugout and two in the batter 1 ! circle. v He got so keyed-up in one game that he uncorked a · roundhouse swing that caught Koppe flush in the chops. f Even though he massaged his injured face for a few 1 hours. Koppe thought the incident was funny. The kid's so excited, it's fun to watch him," ex-' ·plained Koppe, adding that he had made a point not to ·' sit next to the rookie in the dugout any more. After all, · a face can take only so many punches. Remember the name Edgar Leon Kirkpatrick. You'll hear * lot of him during the next 10-15 years. * * * STARTIJXG FACTS DEPARTMENT: During three '· years' exhibition games against the Giants in Phoenix, the ( Angels have averaged 22 runs per game! Twirl that around .'your noggin a few times. · ... The Giants were so determined to whip the Angels J this week in Phoenix that manager Ahin Dark started his ' ) entire opening day lineup against Rigney"s Cinderellas. ',The National League champions had an 0-3 record against I tie Angels and wanted to avoid a complete blanking in 'their final game.
