"'• v In landing Higbe, noted for his blazing .speed; President Larry MacPhail revealed that ..he. had. to outbid two other clubs, presumably the Giants and Pirates. By doing this, he blocked the efforts of the Cubs and the Reds to get the other Phillies' pitching" ace, Hugh Mulcahy. "It. was a must deal from our standpoint," MacPhail said. "Our greatest .need was a top flight pitcher, a young fellow with great stuff who could stand hard work. Higbe was the' only man who met the specifications. "The Phillies also had Mulcahy on .the market but we weren't interested in him. However, two other clubs were and the Phillies told me they wouldn't deal both Higbe and Mulcahy. So when we landed Higbe we not only got what we consider the finest young pitcher in the league but prevented any of our rivals from 'strengthening through the addition of Mulcahy." The Dodgers have been working on the Higbe. deal since .the World Series. Considerable wrangling took place between Gerry Nugent, Phils' president, and MacPhail before Dodger pitchers Vito Tamuhs and Bill Crou'JJlV and catcher Thompson Livingston were agreed upon. The deal was closed yesterday. Higbe, who won. 14 games and lost 19 last season, is regarded by most observers as the fastest pitcher -in the National League. He led the league with 137 strikeouts.
