PAGE TEH BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1956 No Control Keeps Bonus Baby in Cradle Baumann Still Wild; Simmons Might Be Washed Up at 26 By ED \VIUtS The Assot-iated Press It's not the Sniders and Campanulas and Musials or the WiUiamses and Dobys that give a pitcher nightmares m the spring. That will come later. , Right now. it's the threat of a sore arm, whether they re veterans like Curt Simmons or bonus kids like Frank Baumann. The spring exhibitions have been no picnic for Simmons of the Philadelphia Phillies, who at 26 may be at the end of the line because of persistent arm trouble. Nor have they been reason for optH mism for Baumann, who returned! to the Red Sox from military serv-j ice with a painful throwing motion, j Simmons, one of the Whiz Kids t who brought the Phils the National j League flag in 1950, hasn't beenj the same since returning from | service in 1952. First he trimmed j his foot- with a power mower. And j last spring, his arm went sore. • The young lefty was only 8-8 last season. :This year may be decisive. He's felt pretty good this spring, but he got that, old feeling again y e 5 t e r d a y, losing his control against the Si. Louis Cardinals. He pitched three hitless innings, then as tagged for . a run in the fourth and three in the fifth as the Cards on 8-8. Ken Boyer singled in the first, Bt. Louis run, after. Stan Musial's double, arid then doubled along! with Tom Alson in the three-hit, Jour-run fifth. Willard Schmidt as the inner, pitching shutout ball for five innings, but giving up a three-run • homer to Jim Oreen- grass in the sixth. Baumann, tvho collected a reported $125.000 from the Red Soxj before going into the service, didn't have even one good inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday. Control was his trouble too. He walked four and gave three hits as the Bucs belted him for six runs in the six*. In other games, Baltimore tied ihe score with t\vo ranch-inning runs on Owen Friends' error, then scored four in the llth on three walks, two singles and Bob Boyd's double to beat the Chicago Cubs 9-5. Brooklyn's world champion Dodgers evened their spring set at 2-aIl with the New York Yankees by beating their World Series victims 5-4 in 10 innings. Hank Bauer homered twice for the Yanks and Gil Hodges and Jackie Robinson bHsted one each for the Brooks. But it as Joe Collins' muff of Randy Jackson's double that sent the inning run home. Milawukee scored once in the first, then rolled home on a 390- loot grand slam homer by Johnny Logan in the second off Joe Nux- hail to beat the Cincinnati Red- :eg? 5-3. Kookie Earl Averill and Chico Carrascjuel, late ot the White Sox, homered as Cleveland defeated the New York Giants for the sixth t.lne in nine tries 10-5. Willie Mays hit one for the Giants, the only earned run among: the three they got in the first four frames against Bob Feller. Southpaw Art Ceccarelli allowed only two hits, walked one and fanned four in his seven innings as the Kansas City Athletics shut out Detroit's Tigers 2-0. The Chicago While Sox teed off on Washington and Ted Abernathy for nine runs in four innings and a 12-2 decision.

Littler Leads Pro Golf Pack WILMINGTON, N. C. (AP.i — The 512,500 Azalea Open golf tournament, which headed into its second round today again has demonstrated how fiercely competitive professional golf has become. PLAYING IT STRAIGHT — From this camera angle it would seem safe to assume that a dead left field pull hitter was at bat against the Phillies at Jack Russell Field in Clear water, Fla. Seemingly playing it close are, fore to back- ground, Third Baseman Willie Jones (who wa beaned earlier this week), Shortstop Granny Hamner and Center Fielder Richie Ashburn. Pull hitters defy infield shifts.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (fl. — The Kansas City Athletics broke camp and started for.home today run — 1. Manuel (L) 2.1 after winding: up their exhibition fowl for banding this summer in Canada . and the Northern United States prairies. The fowl are releasprf after being marked with leg bands which help the service study breeding and migration habits. Director John L. Farley said this marks the first time the service has planned to use special dog crews. 'Experimental use of dogs has proven that they are more economical than other techniques for capturing immature birds," Farley said. The dogs will be used primarily on young Mallards, because of the tendency of that bird to leave the water when frightened and scurry to any available brush cover. Other types of fowl are trapped by use of nets. Between 27,000 and 30,000 birds usually are banded each year. sx-uner-pr.r yeseray. ut e was only one of 41 players who ; mastered regulation figures and held onl a -stro mast held only a one-stroke lend over : three rivals, with eight othcr.s only : two back of the leadi-r. i Littler shot near Itawk'.v^ iujli — he had to— 10 keep a shor ahead of i another former National Amateur but slumped to 37 coming in to drop into the eight-man 68 bracket which also included Gardner Dickinson Jr., Panama City, Fla., pro, who last Sunday won his first "big one" at Miami Beach. another former Nutional Amateur; king.
