Chief Dodger scout Al Campanis has an interest- ,!ng theory on divorce in relation to young ballplayers. "A youngster who has a divorce in his family daring his _fonnulatrve years--from eight to about 15--usually 'doesn't have as good a chance to make it in baseball as the boy who has lived with both parents," claims Campanis. "A split home very often effects a boy's stability ',"·. and the instability later shows uf» when the boy is fighting other players to .Win a baseball job." Campanis. who has been scout* fyg more than a dozen years, has ample proof to .support his -ljirn 'I ... In the Angel press book edited by bouncing publicist Inr Kaze, the site 6f Saturday's game vs. the D o d g e r s (the National League team's home con- iest) is listed simply as ·tLos Angeles." The site of Sunday's game (in which t!he Angels are the home '^Jub) is designated as "Cha- Dressen Talking- He Likes Dodgers ~ (Continued From Page C-l) tell me he's gonna be a food,who might be available U the cat" Dodgers still feel that tuch a After pausing for a deepldeal U necessary. ireath.

Roman Mejias tripled and doubled in leading !»ez Ravine." .. ... Red Patterson's Dodger press book, on the other land. lists both games in "Dodger Stadium." (The poor tourist could get confused.) t -- The newest Dodger, Bin Skew-on, is praying that tis ex-Yankee teammate Bob Turley makes the Angel '^quad. The reason: Skowron has an apartment ia LA. and Turley would utilize it (thus paying half the costs) .when the Dodgers are on the road. ;J . . I Sudden thought I wonder if the Dodgers now Wish they had been high bidders for the services of Bob Bailey, who looks like heU be the Pittsburgh third base- iian for years to come? (If you're not aware, the Dodgers lave a big. big hole at third base right cow, with rookie Ken McMuHen and cldtimers Don Zimmer and Darjl Speo- 'eer the battling candidates. As for Tommy Davis, the Dodgers are sadly aware that even a 12-foot monster with a 20-foot wingspread and a cet ia each hand couldn't kindle his wayward throws.) :i ... Note to a certain LA. writer: You goofed when you reported that Bailey and another PiUsburghtr. Jim fagliaroni, were teammates at Wilson High. Taint so. Bailey is a beardless 20. Pagliaroni 23 ... and there's no way the twain ever met. · * * * * J MAURY WILLS DEPARTMENT: Did you realize that through all of Maury's glorious base-stealing antics last season, one startling item has been overlooked? Mauiy broke another major league mart. He played in 165 games (including the playoff}--more than any other player ia history- ' ... WiUs has endeared him self to all first and third base coaches in baseball during his off-season and training campaign lectures on base stealing. Diplomatically declares Mauiy: "It's never x coach's fault when a runner Is picked off base. No coach in the world can drag a man back to the base. Blame the player, never the coach." ... Difficult assignment department: Attempting to pack the National League winner this season! Try it yourself. The Dodgers have the most all-around talent, but have defensive weaknesses (ind maybe pitching problems). The Giants certainly will have pitching headaches. And the Cincinnati Reds have the best balanced squad. If consistency means anything, the Reds have an edge. ... Why, the National League race looks like such a · scrambled affair now that one Eastern writer even commented: "Watch out for the PhiffiesT (And he was sober, too.) ... In the other league, if you pick ar'n't the Yankees you should have your head examined. They could fan. but so could the Leaning Tower of Pisa. WHO'S THE FINEST all-around player in baseball? According to an intricate rating system employed by the Dodgers, one man stands alone: Wiffie Mays. In the Dodgers' SO-point rating system (which includes batting, throwing, running, defensive ability, attitude, desire and aid-to- team). Mays is the ONLY player to achieve 100 per cent in each category. ... Appraised of this fact in Phoenix, Giant manager ! Ahin Dark sighed: "If he could only pitch!" ... Ex-Jordanite Dick Merritt hai been switched from fuEback to tackle on the Navy football squad because the Middies lost their entire first team from tackle to tackle. During spring practice, Merritt advanced from the fourth ! to the second unit On the fourth unit now is ex-St. Anthony end Ed Merina . . . When CharEe Dressen told thij writer in Florida that "aa pitchers are flaky" he must not only have been thinking of his own Dodger gang, but likewise of the Angels. With the exception of steady Ken McBride, the Angel starting corps is something to behold. You're wel ; aware of the eccentric behavior of Messrs. Dean Chance and Bo BeEnsky, but you may cot realize that Don Lee also is a special ease. Don not only can't sleep the eight before every game he pitches, but he also develops a different ailment before game time. The last time I saw him he was a laringitis victim _ . until his first pitch when his tonsils suddenly became act he again! Rigney, Rodgers 'in Love* (Continued From Page C-l) plained Gordon. "Now he's hitting the ball where pitched." TVE ALWAYS had a slow'^r?""^; bat as a righthander," said Rodgers. "I have to do something to compensate for it ut pulling certainly wasn't e remedy." With a confidence breeded y experience. Rodgers w eans at much to the pitch- g staff as aa order from Ugney or Man? Grissom. "We've got as good a pitch- :g staff as anyone," ex ressed Rodgers, a handsome ock of granite who may orneday be named captain ' the Angels. "You can't ex- ject them to consistently xk as good as they have 5 spring. You can't pitch shutout every day. But there's not a staff in this ague which is better. All ur starters are improved and each of them has the potential of a winner." * * * · CV THE soaring sixties, a name to remember is Buck odgers. AXSCt.
