COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVB, Onslow Fired as Sox Pilot; As Shake Up Front Office Firing of Jack Onslow By JACK HAND (Associated Press Sporti Writer) as manager of the Chicago White Sox and the vigorous Bhakeup of the Philadelphia A's high command has the baseball world bumng today. Even the New York Yankee's nine-game win' streak and sizzling pace of the Brooklyn Dodders are overshadowed hy the managerial changes. <JS- Onslow's ousting came aa no sur-*- Sports Roundup HUGH FUU.EKTOK JR. NEW YORK, May 27—CD—Give a thought to the plight of Kip En- Ele, who says he detests spring football practice. . .Rip was holding spring drills at Drown when lie received ami accepted a coaching orfer from Penn state. . .Since he e. Jack's name had been on the wall since last fall because of a feud with the White Sox front office. When Onslow heard the news he «aid, "They won't second gues-s me any more. As ft" as I'm concerned Lane (General I^ane) can manage the team and Manager Frank Comiskey (V i President Charles A. Comiskey) can coach at third base — or any place eUe he desires." T h tells the story. Johnny (Red) Corriden, former Brookl y n a n (j Yankee coach and minor league pilot, was moved up from coach to manager for the rest of the senam. Eurle Steps Down The new deal at Philadelphia is more complicated. Manager and club President Connie Mack, now M, named Jimmy Dikes assistant manager and Mickey Cochrane general manager of the club. Both former Athletic greats were working tor Connie us coaches. Jack Onslow While Dykes and Cochrane moved up, Connie's sou, Earle, who has been running the club as assistant nanagcr, became chief player scout. He is to leave "immediately" In search of new talent. Both the White Sox and A's have been bitter disappointments so far. The Sox are last, 14 1(2 games behind the leaders and the A's arc sixth, 13 games out. Onslow's firing wa;n't announced until after the Sox' 2-1 loss to Cleveland. The Philadelphia changes were released before they were beaten 2-0 by the Yankees. Al Rosen's eighth-inning double ruined Onslow'x last night as Chicago manager. Rosen's hit produced both Cleveland runs to give B^bby Feller a decision over rookie Bob fcain. Casey Stengel brought In Joe Hank Bauer trlppled, Joe DIMagglo walked and Yogi Berra singled Bauer home. Hal Newhouser showed no traces of his shoulder trouble in his second route-going Job against the St. Louis Browns. Hal gave the Browns six hits, riding home with an 11-2 win. It was the first half of n scheduled twi-night doubleheader, but the second game was rained out. The Boston Red Sox mid Washington were not scheduled. Burt Shotton tried his Brooklyn relief pitcher, Jack Banta, as a starter and came up with a complete game victory, 5-1. over Boston and Johnny Sain, a six-time winner. Despite their winning spurt, the Dodgers are unable to shake off the phiHic-s who remained one game back by whipping New York, 3-2. Page for the second day in a row | Robin Roberts struck out 11 Giants when the A's threatened in the ninth. Elmer Valo singled and Ferris Fain doubled to put men on second and Ihlrd with two out.
