MAY 89, Yank Jim McHale Meets Top-Ranked Scot Today in British Amateur Play By TOM OCH1LTKEE PRKSTWICK, Scotland (AP)— Big Jim McHale of Philadelphia faced R go " ob- Mays Departs for Army; 'Well Miss Him'-Durocher H> JOK HE1CH1.KK HROOKLVN M>i—Leo Duroclier was discussing one o( his favorite subjects on the New York Giant bench before yesterday's clash with the Brooklyn Dodgers— Willie May.?. "We're going to miss 'Say-Hey'4- - __ Willie a lot," the Giant manager was saying. "More than most people realize. I'd say we're going to miss him as much if not more than we do the big guy." By "the big guy" Durocher meant M o n t e irvin. who has missed all ot the season with a broken ankle suffered during spring triiiuir.g. Mays played his last game yesterday before entering the armed forces tomorrow. "That kid Is the greatest young ball player I have ever seen. r;a none." Leo continued. "He is the only one that I know of who has chance to be as great as Joe DiMaggio. Willie has the five essentials to be a truly great player, lie can run. he has a great arm, he is a tremendous outfielder, he is a good hitler and he has lots of jiower." Better Tlian Moore? Durocher turned to Diz/.y Dean, silting nearby, and addressed the former great pitcher, who is now radio sports announcer. "I believe Mays right now is a better outfielder than Terry Moore ever was," he said, "and next lo DiMaggio, he was the greatest I ever saw. What do you think, Diz?" Dean nodded in agreement. ''This kid does more things than Moore did." he said. "For one thing, he has a better arm than Moore had. For that matter. Mays has- the greatest arm I ever saw, greater than DiMag. He is faster than DiMog, too." Durocher, Dean and Moore were teammates on the St. Louis CardU nal teams of the 1330s. In Mays' absence Durocher plans to alternate Hank Thompson in centerfield against rlghthanded pitching and Chuck Dierine; against lefthanded pitching. Bob Elliott will be the every day leftfietder.
