(£)--Casimir James (Big" Jim) Konstanty .won the National league's most valuable player award .today to become the first relief pitcher ever so ' honored. The bespectacled, rubber-armed righthander, whose great hurling in the clutch won the first flag in 35 years for the Philadelphia Phils in 1950, made a runaway of the one-sided race. There was virtually no opposition; The. .33-year-old native of Worcester, N. Y., received IS of the 24 first-place votes of a committee of the Baseball Writers'ass9ciation|o£~^ e mos i feared batters in of America. The only surprise wasjcircuit with 47 homers and at bat with a .300 mark, the "Brat" topped the loop in runs scored and bases on balls. Ennis enjoyed his best season in the majors. The Phils' power hitter smashed 31 homers and drove in .125 runs, tops irl the league. Kiner, despite a lowly .272 mark, was one White Pushing Bes t For Point Lead NEW 'YORK, Nov. 2.

It was a real Cinderella story for the veteran Konstanty, who _ hac been knocking around professional baseball' for 10 years wjth only moderate success. It wag just a few years ago that Big Jim was on - the verge of quitting the game for good after his release by the Boston 'Braves. -'Prior to that he had failed to make it with the Cincinnati Reds. Konstanty c a u g h t on with Toronto, where he first began to work for his current boss, Eddie Sawyer. "When Sawyer moved up to manage' the Phils in the summer of 1948, he wasted little time bringing up Konstanty. It turned out to be the best .move Sawyer ever made. ' .

' , · ' · ' Bentley, the Leaf's veteran cen- ter, scored two goals and drew assists on. two others as Toronto dumped the Montreal Canadiens, 5 to 3, last night before 13,757 fans at the Maple Leafs Garden. In nine games played thus far Bentley has totaled 21 points to tie Maurice (Rocket) Richard of the Canadiens for the league scoring leadership. Richard scored two goals in Canadiens' losing cause last night. , - minutes--with an effective bear hug, natch. The gorgeous hunk of beast'was Jin top shape for the get-together, '(having consumed a full case !Delaware Punch' and ripped up (several floor boards in his dressing ['room beforehand. He never gave Keene a chance. , On The Run Despite a muzzle over his mouth, leather gloves on his sharp paws and a chain around his neck (determinedly held at its far end by Trainer-Owner Billy Fox), the North Woods competitor managed to keep his opponent and Referee Ed Nowell on the run. As a -matter of fact, Keene and NoweU spent a good-part of the 15-minute match out 'of the ring. When Keene got courageous and attacked Gus, he was promptly | decked and sat on. He suffered jmat burns all over his body as he sought to escape his hairy prison. After the Black Bear, a three- year-old with plenty of class, had disposed of his Birmingham challenger, a professional wrestler, fans were invited to try their luck. Only one person accepted the invitation, but he became disheartened when he was shown the dressing room floor boards. « The evening's main event--featuring; Roger McKay and John O'Reilly--came after Gorgeous Gus' appearance, but, surprisingly enough, was not anti-climactic. As a matter of fact, it was a good professional mat exhibition by two pretty fair grapplers. McKay, whp hails from Salt Lake and is a local favorite, lost a Bitter first fall in 27 minutes when his fop finally succeeded with a hammer lock. Nine minutes later, McKay rallied with his favorite specialty, a one-legged Boston crab hold, pinning O'Reilly after a series of body, slams. The third and deciding fall was awarded to McKay in six minutes bv the referee-- O'Reilly was plavine dirty with his knees. .
