16 THE DAILY HOME NEWS, NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J.. FRIDAY, APRIL 2, 1948. "Shovels" Signs On the Dotted Line Kobesky. 32. a veteran of 10 seasons of professional baseball,! land five-fcet-ten, scales 200 pounds, and throws and bats righty. He Is a catcher by trade but can patrol the outergarden with the best. He succeeds Ed Buika as skipper of the club which operated last season as the New London Raiders and finished fourth in the Colonial League pennant chase. A native of Scranton, Kobesky played and managed Salisbury, Md., of the Eastern Shore League in 1940 and the following season moved up to Elmira of the Eastern League. His spectacular play and terrific hitting earned him a shot at the 'higher circuit' and in 1942 he was purchased by Buffalo of the International League. With Buffalo in '42 Big Ed played in 121 games and appeared at the dish 382 times. He batted .290 for the season and his overall record shows that he scored 52 runs, pounded out- 111 hits, Including 18 doubles, 1- triple, 19 home runs, and knocked in 78 runs. He achieved a similar record the following year and then proceeded to burn up the league In 1944. Hit 28 Home Runs In 143 games 'Shovels' batted 528 times, scored 106 runs and clipped the pill for 173 base knocks. A breakdown of the safeties shows 31 doubles, two triples and 28 ROUNDTRIPPERS. In total bases it was 286 and in runs batted In 129. (A pretty valuable man to have around the ball park.) After playing with Milwaukee in 1945 Eddie was sold to Jersey City in 1946. His career . as an active player was temporarily halted while performing for the Little Giants. Catching a game against Montreal in mid-season, Kobesky broke his hand and was forced to sit out the remainder of the campaign. The unfortunate accident happened in a peculiar manner. With one out, a man on first and Jackie Robinson, current Brook lyn Dodger sensation, at the plate the runner broke for second. Grabbing a high, inside pitch, Eddie attempted to rifle a peg to second but instead his hand came in contact with Robby's head. The ball squirted toward short, Robby fell to the ground, and Eddie wound up with a broken mitt. Eddie returned to duty last year and started ail over again with the Lincoln, Neb., team of the Western League. He is anxious to get the New Brunswick diamond array into tip-top playing shape and yester day both he and Laviano aereed that the local nine will start train ing here in town on April 7 at the juunicipal stadium. The season will open on the 27th. Open At Port Chester Put a big circle around April 28 in red ink, and mark it New Brunswick baseball!

J City Title Tilt Postponed St. Emery's Waives Forfeit Win and Will Meet John's Five Next Wednesday St. Emery's will meet the John's Busy Corner quintet 8:15 next Wednesday at the Lord Stirling gymnasium for the title in the final round of the tournament of Champions, Tom Kenncaiiy, director of the City League, announced today. The announcement came after a flurry of activity that followed the statement from John's that it would not floor a team in the City League final scheduled for last light. Instead, the John's quintet, revealed that it wouia piay in the semi-final round of the Central Jersey Invitation tournament at Asbury Park. Johns requested the City League officials to postpone the game with St. Emery s, but the petition was denied on the grounds that such an action "would create an undesirable precedent" that would encourage teams to renege on arranged City League games in the future and ask for postponements. The league official explained that it has always been the policy for teams to be informed of their league schedule in advance, with forfeits awarded if the commitments were not fulfilled. Consequently, St. Emery's was declared the winner by forfeit, but Emery's elected to waive the forfeit victory and requested that a game be arranged at , the convenience of the John's team. Only other league activity last night had the Central Cubs beating the Scorpions 29-24 at Lord Stirling. Soerplom 4 I Central Cuba (24) O. r. P.I G. F.
