And when you get Lhe chance, walch the op- ppsing pitcher and every opposing hitter. You must also listen to somebody lo learn a lot about hitting. That's B good thing to do even if you have the ability. The curve ball used to bother me. Now I hit the curve ball better than the' fast ball. That's because 1 worked on hitting curve balls.

Robinson joined Uie Indians Jfay 20 after h* had been released un- 'conditionally by Detroit earlier ia the season. He has been used mainly is a pinch hitter. Minnie Minoso say. I challenged the curve ball and, of course, when I knew it was coming I could hit it. That was in batting practice, but laler on in the American League games it paid off. In 1949, I had two dozen baseballs in Cuba. Two friends pitched to me for one month. After that the American League pitchers stopped throwing me the curve ball because I started hitting the curv« ball pretty good.
