JIATOTtPAT. 'APRIL 15, Weatherman Halts 7 Football Games Exhibition Tilts as Teams Near Home By the Associated Prew A 'J,16 major league baseball teams had a single thought .toclay—"weather they could play their scheduled exhibition games. n- Wi cmbs we With their season openers almost upon them, the were anxious for action. Ten big league teams had been slated to phiy yesterday hut-the calendar-defying elements —snow and cold—cut their exercise to no more than a vigorous session of gin rummy or a neck-straining glance at the skies. f The New 'York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers were to have opened a three-game set at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field in what was tagged a "re-play" of last fall's world series. But snow fell for a second straight • day—almost an Inch of it. About 17,000 tickets had been sold, too. Today the world champion Yankees and Brooklyn's National League pennant holders were to try "gain, at Yankee Stadium. Other games wiped out In the "cold war" with the weatherman yesterday were: Cubs, Sox to Flay Two New York Giants vs. Cleveland »t Indianapolis; Washington at Baltimore; Cincinnati at Richmond, Ind.; Boston Red Sox at Boston Braves and Chicago Cubs vs. chic»|0 White Sox at Chicago. The Chicago clubs, figuring on making up the loss of yesterday's contest, scheduled a doubleheader at Wrigley Field tomorrow. One game was slated for today at Cum- Iskey park. Of today's nine scheduled games, all but two pitted major league clubs against each other. In Uvo others, Detroit was visiting Louls- ^'I'Ajiif the American Association an^^incinnatl was to meet Ind- lana'polis, also an American Association team. . While yesterday's diamond dev- elophients strongly resembled a weather report, the dreary day did produce several items of interest. Post In Sold Veteran Infieldcr Ken Keltner, who on Wednesday was unconditionally released by the Cleveland Indians, lost little time making a good deal for himself. Ken. from his Milwaukee home, phoned Genera! Manager Joe Cronin of the Boston Red Sox and got a job. No terms were announced. It was believed Ken would fit in mostly as > pinch-hitter and add some reserve -power to the Boston team— something it could have used more of the past couple of seasons. The Yankees sold two players outright anrt optioned two others to their Kansas City farm club. Pitcher Prank (SPEC) Shea, a 1911 star wltlv'tfie parent'club -but-a-'dis- ftppolritment since, and bonus plt- chjfcpaul Hinrlchs were sold. Op- tlrHSi were first baseman Fenton Mole and pitcher Wally Hood. - The Pittsburgh Pirates sold Ray Poat, 33-year-old righthanded pit cher, to the Baltimore Orioles o the. International League.
