B TWO LINCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND STAR, APRIL 23 1939 Wolcolt And Billy Brown Standouts In Drake Relays Entry List Scout Says It fH. YOUTHFUL American who " perchance is fired with the ambition to make a go of it in the spangles of a big league baseball player might find it to his advantage to scan an article authored by Paul Krichell, head scout for the New York Yankees, whose contribution is published in the May issue of a national magazine. . According to the Yankees' road agent, the candidate must measure up to certain definite requirements, two of which are most important The first is entirely physical, meaning: Can he throw far and accurately, has he speed afoot and how does he stack up as to height and weight? But the second, i-ys the' New York scout, is most essential of all, to-wit: Does he possess a "love for the game?" Right here, Mr. Krichell rinrs the bell, as It Is s truism of practically every sport that ;. without a burning yen to play ' any game, the gate to outstanding success Is barred. And to make the big- league grade, of eturse, the player must be "outstanding." Otherwise, he's a .minor leaguer. Hints to Pitchers. THE Yankee scout devotes substantial space to the requirements which pertain to outfielders, infielders. first-basemen and catchers, but the specifications which most intrigue the writer of this column deal with the pitching topic. ' In other words, a pitching candidate worthy to attract Krichell's attention must pass muster in accordance with the following demands: "I want size and weight," the scout says, "in pitching prospects. The right numbers are five-ten to six-two in height and between 180 nd 200 pounds in weight. The sine qua non, of course, is a fast ball. Everything else can be taught." You youngsters Imbued with pitching aspirations, let that "fast ball" essential sink IrL-The Yankee scout cares nothing concerning your ability to propel a puzzling curve that part of the pitching art can be taught but if the "fast ball" is lacking, you can't hope to climb the big .league mountain. High, Hard One. S" COUT KRICHELL'S "fast ball"' requirement, I fear, is slightly confusing, in that it fails to tell ;the full story. In professional baseball circles, a "fast ball" isn't a pitch in which sheer speed predominates. Actually, the successful "fast ball" flinger is one whose pitch describes a quick hop or break Shortly before the ball comes up to the batsman in his position at the home plate. ; If excessive speed and the hop are combined the quicker and wider the hop the better the pitching candidate Is on the high road to success. . , Ability to apply the necessary english or spin which accounts for the curve is only a minor detail, for, as Scout Krichell says, the young pitcher can be taught everything else but how to heave that kind of pitch described in the parlance of the sport as a "high (hard one." Right here one of the mys- teries of baseball Is involved. A I pitcher can be taught how to attain mastery of the curve, but I so skilled tutor of the diamond game can Impart to his pupil the i ability to lend excessive speed , to his pitch or to apply the Heeded hop, even though he has . the speed. The two possessions .aro speed and hop combined i are nature's gifts.

The classic is going to draw another large cast of some 2,000 track and field performers from tht south, west and midwest, but Johnson believes Brown and Wolcott will emerge as the leading Individual heroes. Providing thrills for Drake relays patrons would not be a new experience for Wolcott he held the spotlight last year when 10 records were broken but Brown, youngest member of the 1936 United States' 1936 Olympic team, will make his first . appearance here next week. Both boys are entered In the 100-yard dash field which also includes, among others, Myron Piker, Northwestern's Western conference indoor sprint champion; Robert Lewis of Ohio State and Earl Witcher, East Texas Teachers rambler. The High Hurdles. Wolcott will not be bothered by his rival in the 120-yard high hurdles. In fact, it isn't likely anyone will cause the tow-headed Rice ace" much concern in his pet event. He established a new Drake mark of :14.2 as a sophomore last ye"ar. - - . , Brown, a possibility in the high jump and the top choice in the broad jump, will not have Wolcott as a foe in those events, but they'll be members of sprint relay teams listed among the favorites. The two southern stars, however, aren't going to attract all of the attention. Here's a list of prominent events and leading entries: Two mile run: Walttr Mehl of Wisconsin, national collegiate record-holder; Qreg Rice ol Notre Dame; Forrest Bfaw of Oklahoma A. tc M.; and Bill Feller of Drake.

Out In Coffin Corner. One of the high spots of the game altho " not figuring ' in ' the scoring was Jack Vincent's 70 yard quick kick that went out of bounds on the 1 foot line, barely slipping inside the flag as it rolled out. Yale had Harvard In the hole most of the first quarter and the Blues started a scoring threat when Hopp passed to Ken Simmons for a 20 yard gain and a first down on the Crimson 14. Walt Luther snuffed out the rally by intercepting Harry's pass in the end zone for a touchback. In the second quarter Schleich blocked Don Rubottom's punt and Harvard recovered on the Yale 30 but a few moments later Blue grabbed one of George, Porter's passes out of the air and brought the ball back to the Yale 31. The two first elevens took over at the start of the third period, Vincent's long quick kick immediately putting Yale behind the eight ball. Blues Stiffer. Hopp's return punt against the wind was downed on the Yale 27 but the Blues stiffened and. took the leather on downs on their own 17.
