' Blooper Ball Hurler Gets Fine Offer on Heels of Stinging Loss AH 11 If NEW YORK, July 11. (UP)—, Triictl Hanks Sewell, n so-so pitcher! with a last place ball chib, was a man with a fancy price tng on his head today. At least one major league elub owner, aware of the shor.'inanshtp value of a mrm able lo sc 1 , 3' people laughing out loud at a game, came away from Tuesday's all-star classic at Boston Insisting that lie would like to have the 1'iUsbnriih hnrler on Ills chil>—whatever it might cost. VWhercver he pitches next, he'll pnck the park with that era/y blooper bail," Hie club owner said. Pans throughout the baseball 'realm sltll were bu/,xlng over tlie odd twist which made a man n hero right after he had thrown a home rim ball which produced three tallies and actually held his team up to ridlculi 1 . Under normal circumstances, such an action mi^ht have called for a still tine instead of n "praise phrase" in virtually every account that was written nbunt the 12 to 0 drubbing the Americans handed out. Sewell In the past has capitalized on the pilch because It is delivered with an clement of surprise. He had virtually abandoned it this year lie- cause it had gotten so much publicity that batters expected it and began to hit him with regularity whenever lie used It. lint in tlie 10« and IOM seasons when he won 21 names each year, he fooled many a National League slugger by mixing tlie pitch In on rare occasions with his food fast ball and sharp breaking curve. It caught batters oft b^inee. lefl them completely baffled as to how lo hit against a pitch that broke almost vertically toward the plalo. As a result, they popped up weakly foul- ed out. and sometimes missed 11 altogether looking foolish and chagrined at a toss that seemed like something out of.a school p.h'ls' soft ball game. Against Williams, however, the surprise factor was gone. Sewell had used 11 against other baiters In the Inning, Veinon Stephens having lofted a single on one of the tosses. Williams himself was served two of Mobile Trounces Atlanta Again Bears Register Wins In Four of Five Games With Crackers.
