"Del Webb tells me in Kansas City they haven't played a home game where they could have batting or fielding practice. They've had to keep the tarpaulin on the field up to we got by game time Memorial Day all right and had some nice crowds ... It was real nice .sitting out there In Ihe .sunshine." . . . i Maybe that's the next baseball novelty—playing games in the afternoon with the sim as n big selling point.) . . . "What do you think of (hat White Sox-Washington deal?" Shag asked, and without waiting lor an answer tic continued: "They were trying nil spring to sell those two pitchers, and they were going to hold out for big prices ... So they wind up having to trade with each oilier . . .

W)—Jimmy Cannon, spurts columnist of the New York Post, said yesterday in a copyright cnlumn that Ted Williams, baseball's highest paid player, intends to ask the Boston Red Box to trade him. preferably to the Detroit Tigers. "Boston's hostile and abusive baseball fanatics probably have succeeded tn running Ted Williams out of town." Cannon wrote. "It is his hope that this is his last year with the. Hed Sox. At the end of the season. I can exclusively and positively report today Williams intends to ask the Red Sox to trade him. His choice is Detroit. Only Detroit, Cleveland, and the. Yankees could afford to employ him." Fred Corcoran, Williams' business manager, said Williams bad said nothing to him abor' a desire to be traded and as far as lie knev,- there was "nothing to it." Draws Highest Salary ' Williams reputedly receives S125,- MO annually from the Red Sox. the biggest sum ever paid a baseball player. Although Williams is leading the American League in home runs with 11. and Is second in runs batted in with 41 against 47 for Junior Stephens of the Red Sox. his batting average has slumped to .285. Cannon declared that Williams' value is so great that terms lor any sort of a trade would be prohibitive even for Detroit, Cleveland, nr the New York Yankees. "It is doubtful a player has ever been a more unpopular player with home town partisans." said Cannon. "Tiie animosity between Williams and his enemies in the stands has increased with the passage of the years. Williams blames his diminishing batting average on the recent exchange of-Insults which ended <n an apology by the mist controversial player since Ty Cofab quit the fame." , ered H hi te on the usually powerful "" In (he iiinc-gainc :e to los- up The Only One, II SYDNEY-W)_A m-w establishment has just bi-eii opened in Sydney's Central Square, ris name- Ihc one and Only r ic stall- Number Two Hranch " Chnttnnooga.
