YANKS DOMINATE ALL STAR TEAM Di Maggio Voted Higher Than Joe Medwick for an Outfield Position St. Louis, Jan. 4 (If)— Somewhere there are two members of the Baseball Writers' Association who would lenve Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees oft an all- star baseball team, and there are four writers who would pass up Joe Medwick of. the St. Louis Cardinals.

DiMaggio got 245 votes and Medwick 243. As could be expected, the World Champion Yankees dominated the learn, although the two leagues tivided evenly, with five players each. In addition to DiMagrglo, the Yanks placed Pitcher Charles Ruf- Ing, First-Baseman Lou Gehrig and Third-Baseman Bob Rolfe. The team, with the number of votes each player received for his position, although not necessarily his total vote, was: : First Base—Lou Gehrig, Yankees (229). Second Base—Charles Gehrlnger, Detroit (238). Shortstop—Dick Bartell, New York Giants (72). Third Base—Bob Rolfe, Yankees (SI). Right Field—Paul Waner, Pitta- burgh (1S2). Center Field — Joe DiMagglo, Yankees (240). Left Field—Joe Medwick, Cardinals (235). Catcher—Charles Hartnett, Chicago Cubs (135). Pitchers—Carl Hubbell, Giants (2(13), and Charles Rutting, Yankees (142). Bartell nosed out Joe Cronin of e Boston Red Sox by one vote for shortstop, while Rolfe was 1 chosen for third base over 14 other dayers. led by Harlond Clift at the St. Louis Browns with 45 votes and \rt Whitney of the Philadelphia Nationals with 36.
