Washington Far A b o v e Accustomed Place and Manager Is One Reason NEW YORK, June 1. (UP)-Last year the Washington Senators finished In seventh place in the American League. In fact a spot on the .second division is nothing new to Clark tjrllfith's club. But this year the team has been in the first division for quite some lime. And the u-ny the Senators have been going they coulrl be at the top when the final average.', are tabulated. Stranger tilings have happened in Boointown, D. 0. The sudden Senator splurge causes some speculation. Anil the ,rsl spot to receive attention Ls ihc managerial post, Ossle Jilucgc, In Ills first year at the helm, is really doing a bang-up job. And that brings u.u the question as to why so ninny baseball managers in their first year on the job have made pennant contenders out of supposedly poor team. Mickey Cochrane, you may remember, won a pennant his' first year as boss of the Detroit Tigers. Bucky Harris, now manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, and Joe Cronln, both took Washington to the top (he first year they hail the reins, Beginners luck, you may say. nut don't believe that luck will win u baseball pennant. Jil probably can be attributed (o the fact that rookie managers arc s o anxious to -make good lliat they never come down en" Ihcli- toes. They're thinking, of (lie game all the time and instill heads-up busebnll Into their charge's. And at the end of the year they have a pennant. Later, perhaps, when the man- nBcr.s become veteran holsmmeii they rest on their laurels and fiji to spark a club with enough j- c , t to force it to the top. Any number of other reasons could be advanced for Initial success, some of which may be sound But if Ossie liliiege comes throu..|i lliis season Clark Griffith prubublv will hire n IICK- manager cvcrv year. It will be lite third pennant under new reins. Hut then re. member, we said If.
