That Is. he wm calling the play.i just before Prank Me- Goire's smart, well-coached team executed them . . . "if co liege teams could play cousistejitly the way these boys have in the last few innings, they'd be about equal to Class B professional clubs." Jack commented. "But they're not consistent. There's a much bigger gap In those games it's easier for a teammate to cover up a loose's mistakes. Or it might be that college baseball players don't always get good enough training . . . Last year's national champion Southern California team, for instance, produced tour players who are making good in Class AAA. Wally Hood and Hank Workman with Newark; Tom Kipp with San Diego and Gaii Henley with Minneapolis. Three holdovers, shortstop Jim Brtde- weser, second baseman Art. Maz- maiiian nnd catcher Bruce Mc- Kelyey may be good enough lo Join them . . . Doesn't look like such a big gap there. Snead Favored As Firing Starts In National Open CHICAGO.
