The Hajah faces a task of winning the players lo his side, even though he Is a pretty good egg, too. '1 know Ihe Cubs have the fight hnd are capable of copping the championship," the new Cub boss told me when (lie Bruins engaged the Los Angeles club of the Coast League in a recent series. "What the final outcome will be depends largely on what kind of breaks we get, _ because Hie breaks coimi a lot In baseball. We'll be on! I fighting to make our own breaks." Hack Wilson was tile center o! : a. row in tho Cub rante shortly after the team reached Cainlina Island to open' the training period.

Last'year Heilmann was the main excuse for a fan going to see o ball game In Cincinnati, anyway. Joe Genewlch has been trying to come back. Should he regain his great form of a few seasons, ago, the Giants might win a pennant, figuring the other pitchers at their term of last y.ear. But once aii arm slips, it fs hard" to bring back.

"One of the rniiln things a club • reeds Is plenty of reserve strength," Hornsby remarked.* "We'll have an edge on sonic 'of the clubs in that respect this year. Our reserves are almost as strong P.S the regulars." • Certainly the Cubs shouldn't have anv pitching troubles this season. Practices have brought out seven right-handers and thvee southpaws who arc ready to step into n chamnionship fame anv day now. Fred Blake. Guy Bush. Pat Matone. JC5s Petty. Bob Osborner and Charley Root, all regulars last season, are back again this year.
