PAGE SIX BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 7,'1959 Who's on Second? Haney Himself The View From Here C-a ^ Courier Newi Sport* Ecfitor Hell Play It from the Bench; Pirates Are Hurt BLYTHEVILLE'S BASEBALL Chickasaws play Game No. 2 tomorrow afternoon here in town. Interested fans are directed to travel to the Pony League field because that's where the game probably will be played. Manila is the opponent. » * * THERE ARE slim possibilities the game might be played at Legion Field in Walker Park, or on the new diamond which is located on the northwest corner of the BHS campus, behind the high school building. These possibilities, though, are slimmer than slim, because it's next door to impossible to ready them in two days. 1 The eame starts about 3:30. * * * BILLY SULLIVAN, slender southpaw, is scheduled to pitch for the Chicks. He was handcuffed to bed with flu last week when the Chicks went to Manila and lost, 7-3. Throwing against some college baseball players last Saturday, against boys like BOBBY JAYROE, JOE BRATCHER and JOE MELTON (all from Oklahoma), v Sullivan was artful. * * * DISTRICT THREE'S baseball tournament commences April 27, thru May 2 ... at Trumann. Sixteen teams are entered. Blytheville plays Rector at 5, Tuesday of that week. Osceola plays Leachville at 9 Monday night. Manila faces Bay Tuesday night at 9. If (he Chicks win, they return the following night at 9 to take on the winner of the Osceola- Leachville deal. * * * ED WELDON (he's an Osceola football player) was a bridegroom Sunday. The bride was MARY JANE FORD. She's from Marked Tree. * * * DEAN WAGNER, Manila's bidding and budding major leaguer, has signed a Class C contract for this year . . . but there's a possibility he might finish the season in A ball. Last summer, young Dean played Class D in Hobbs, New Mexico, It was his first year on the pro- go-round, and he led the league with 19 homers. Property of the Cardinals, Dean's spring-training in Albany, Georgia. But he doesn't know yet where he'll earn his 1959 money. Always a superior hitter and thrower, he's been shifted from third base to the outfield. * * *' JIM FISHER did a thorough job of applauding the work of his assistant JOHN KOLDUS at a luncheon last week at Hotel Noble. The occasion was a Rotary gathering honoring Blytheville High's 1958-59 basketball team. And then Koldus did a sound job of returning the kind words. "Jim is too kind," said John. "All I did to help was tug at his coattails whenever he got too excited and jumped up off the bench. "This year it might'ye seemed that .1 did more shouting from the bench . . . but as you know Jim's voice doesn't carry too well ... so whenever he had anything to say he'd tell it to me and then I'd shout it out on the floor." The Fisher-Koldus working agreement during the basketball season was a joyous — and productive association. * * * MULTIPLE THANKS to Blytheville Jaycees for their multiple generosity last night in awarding an honorary membership hi their organization to this typewriter. But really, helping to bring the St. Louis Hawks here, selling the game and reporting it, was strictly the pleasure of the viewer. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Manager Fred Haney said today he'll take over for Milwaukee Braves second baseman Red Schoendienst himself — but he'll do it from the bench. "There isn't anyone in the game who could take over out there like Red," Haney said, ' "and we don't have anyone even approaching his abilities, so I am going to do what I can from the dugout." ' ' * * . * SCHOENDIENST, under treatment for tuberculosis, won't be able to play baseball this year, doctors say. Haney has been using Felix Mantilla and Chuck Cottier to plug the gap and Milwaukee Buc Has Bum Arm recently acquired infielder Johnny O'Brien from the Philadelphia Phillies for added bench strength'. "The way it looks right now you're going to see a lot of me out on the mound this summer," Haney said. "When a pitcher is in trouble or needs help 1 am going out there and leave instructions. * * * "I DON'T WANT any of my present infielders making decisions and I have elected myself to call the shots." At present, Mantilla is Milwaukee's most logical choice to start at second base because Mel Roach will be sidelined until June or July with a bad left knee. Whiz Witt Sent Home By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer Want a new line on Pittsburgh's long lamented chances for the National League pennant? Then forget those exhibition game line-scores and cock \an ear for the medical report on George Witt's troublesome arm. The young right-hander, a pitching sensation as a rookie last season when he shrugged off arm trouble and won seven straight for the longest string of the year in the NL, was sent on to Pittsburgh Honday night for an examination y the club physician. The trouble centers in a painful elbow, which the freckle-faced redhead thinks was strained when he tried to develop a slider two years ago in the minors. The trouble popped up again Monday and Witt was forced from the mound after one inning as the Pirates finished their stay in Florida with a 2-1 victory over Kansas PLAYOFFS RESUME Lakers to Gamble ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minneapolis Lakers are ready to gamble on a baseball pitcher tonight to chill the hottest pinch hitter in pro basketball, Boston's Frank Ramsey. The teams resume the National Basketball Assn.'s best four-of- seven final playoffs in the St. Paul Auditorium with the Celtics leading two games to none. Coach Johnny Kundla of Lakers said he plans to give 6-foot-6 rookie Steve Hamilton, a long-term bench rider most of the season, a crack at stopping the sizzling Mr. Ramsey. "When they send Ramsey in to troubleshoot for. them I'll probably have Hamilton in there sooner or later," said "coach Kundla. Hamilton, who played college basketball at Morehead, Ky. t is a southpaw pitcher in the Cleveland Indians chain. He had a 17-14 record with Burlington, N.C., in the class B Carolina League last year. None of the Laker regulars has had much luck with Ramsey, the game-breaking Celtic reserve who has hit 14 of 30 shots and 49 points in 50 minutes of play against the Lakers. Unless they win this one the Lakers can kiss the series goodby Beaten twice in Boston, the} can't afford to lose a home game am still retain much hope of winning the title. Junior Bowlers Pop Poplar Bluff Red Rebels, a team composed of the top five bowlers in Delta Lanes' Saturday Junior League, defeated Poplar Bluff Sunday, 4-1.

(AP) — "Give me six months or a year in the minors and I'll be okay," said veteran Boston Red Sox pitcher Willard Nixon Monday in reply to a report he has asked for an unconditional release. "Somebody got ms wrong," Nixon said of a story from Dallas, Tex., which quoted him as saying he was quitting because of an ailing shoulder. He said he will report to the Sox at Houston, Tex., Wednesday with the expectation of being assigned to a farm club, perhaps Minneapolis of the American Assn. Nixon has been wilh Bosto since 1950.
