THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 24. 1933 SPORTS 11 TWENTY-FIVE-CENT BASEBALL PROSPECT FOR FANS .ON' COAST By RUSSELL J. NEWLAND A«!0(latBd Pmi Sperti Writer CAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24.—Twenty-five cent baseball is coming back ^ to tho Pacific Coast League,'after a 14-year reign of higher prices, in a long discussion of the subject here yesterday, directors of the Class A. A. circuit climaxed their annual spring meeting by voting to establish minimum prices of 25 cents for the bleachers and 40 cents for the grandstands. The new ruling docs not arbitrarily fix the ticket prices except as to the niinlniums. The matter of how much to charge .will be left to the various clubs. They may retajn the same admissions in effect now, generally BO cents for bleachers and 75 cents for grandstand seats. But from the sentiment expressed*the "two-bit" bleacher seat sign that gave way to the vise hi prices after 1919 will be in place again •when the pennant chaso begins April 4. Belief that every club would swing into line for the lower prtyje scale was fexpressed on all sides. As ono director put It, "If one city has two- bit baseball, the others will also." He pointed out the fans In other cities •would quickly clamor for <i prlco reduction. Bearwald's Idea .Toe Boarwald, president of the San Francisco Missions, led the buttle for 25-cent baseball when tho club mo- Kuls convened yesterday. Officials of the San Francisco Seals, Los Angeles and Oakland clubs also favored the prlco slash from the start. Representatives of Portland, Seattle, Sacramento and Hollywood agreed a reduction was the solution to the problem of how to make the populace baseball- minded again but they were at variance on how much to reduce. After an all-day meeting, they got together on their minimum admission prices and local option plan which paved tho way for offering tho fans a chance to watch the national 'pastime at lower charges. To partly offset tho decrease In revenues, It IH believed the number of "ladles free" days will be cut down by most of the clubs. For some time the Los Angeles club has held to a policy of passing tho fannettes through tho gates at no charge four days u week. Bleacher sections probably will be enlarged. At Seals' Htadium, home of the San Francisco and Mission Clubs, thtfc bleacher accommodations are expected to be Increased from the present 2500 seating capacity to space for 7000. No construction work will bo necessary, merely a matter of decreasing. the number of grandstand seats being required. Open April 4 Aside from tho major Issue of reduced prices, the directors approved opening April 4 and closing October 1. a 20-week schedule of continuous play, Oakland and Portland hooked up in a player deal, tho Oaks trading Outfielder George Blackerby, a .300 hitter, for Meyer Chozen, young shortstop. CTiozen, a 10-year-old Los Angeles youth, picked up by Portland last year, turned In a fine fielding record. Tho directors meet again today to clean up a few details.

P.)-— Postponement of the Agua Cnllente women's winter handicap golf tournament from February 6 nnd 7 to February 14 nnd 15 was announced today. Tho shift in dates was necessitated by n change Jn plans of the women's midwinter * tournament at Los Angeles, which will bo held from February 0 to 10. Originally It had been scheduled a few days earlier. nnd around after Its Initial , movement, the right hip turns directly to the.right —meaning directly back. This Is the tinning movement. This turn is neces- iary for the reason hat It sets your >ody out of your own way. If this turning back of the right hip Is omitted, shoulder turning will be Impeded and arm action/as to swinging back and around, will bo blocked. Hence, your arms, being unable to swing freely around will lift upward. That produces the chop-swing winch Is so common among the masses of players w'ho enjoy golf, or anyhow try to. If you will stand, office, honle, or anywhere nnd withdraw your right hip as here outlined, you'll see how naturally the shoulders turn In following it. The turn into perfect golf- Ing position Is automatic If you'll simply withdraw your'right hip In this correct manner. The withdrawal also stiffens your right leg. Practice that. In many respects It Is the beginning of the good swing. Note.—Nothing perfects like practice. Practice your putting and perfect it with Mr. Morton's special putting Instruction, obtainable, free, by writing him for it care National Newspaper Service, 326 West Madison street, Chjcago.
