WEDNESDAY, JULY 2!5, 1953 BI,YTHEVTT,T,E (AKK.V COURIER PAGE SEVEN Yankees Work Hard to Win NEW YORK (AP) — After his New York Yankees won 18 games in a row, Manager Casey Stengel thought he had the American League Pennant cinched. Before Completing First Full Season, VersatileO'Connell Is Pittsburgh Pro But he has learned his lesson. "Why," he said today before ^sending his team against the Cleveland Indians, "I wouldn't even I count the Indians out yet, not with I the kind of pitching they have." The Yanks bent the Tribe 4-2 last I night, but they had to work to win I it. If Stengel's men can knock down the Indians in the remaining two games of the current series, they will have taken care of one of their main threats. Then they'd only have to worry about the Chicago White sox and the Boston Red Sox. Club Looked Better "Anyway, the entire club looked better than at any time since we won a double-header from the White Sox more than a week ago," rasped the old professor. "I know now that I have two pitchers, Allie Reynolds and Whitey Ford. They both looked great against the Indians." Ford started lost night's battle and gave up five hits in 6 2-3 innings before he was rescued by Reynolds who permitted two hits the rest of the way. The super-chief of the Yanks' staff came on when Ford was tapped for two runs in the seventh. "That was a big victory for us," Stengel continued, "and I don't mind admitting that it took a load off my mind. I was plenty worried after we looked so terrible in Cleveland and Detroit on our last Western trip." Osceola Meets Parkin Tonight Another rubber game is on tap tonight at Hale Field, Osceola when the Osceola Little Leaguers play Parkin. In their last encounter at Parkin the OLL lost a 8-6 decision after having beat the Parkin nine decisively In Osceola several weeks back by a count of 16-6. Probable starters for the Osceola team will, he Ray Mann, Jr., catcher; Ed Weldon, pitcher: Jerry Hill, first base; Wayne Pierce or Mar Weiss, second base; Ray Adcock, shortstop; Jack Morse, :Mrd base; Logan Young, left field; Stan Sanders, centerfield; and Buddy Mclntyre, right field. Game time; 8:00. By MURRAY OLDERMAN NEA Staff Correspondent PITTSBURGH — (NEA) — Danny O'Connell, who has yet to play his first full season of major league baseball, already is acclaimed the finest player with the Pirates. It may be an indictment of the roster, but we prefer to consider it an accolade for the versatile young inflelder from Paterson, N J. Around the circuit, in true Stengel- ese, they talk about "that infield fella" from Pitteburph, The Pro. There's no question of identity O'Connell could piay regularly (or any other team in the majors despite the fact that Chuck Dressen was looking toward Brooklyn at Ail- Star picking time. Incidentally, the 24 - year - old Irishman is from out of the Dodgers' farm system. Like Bill Hunter, the Browns', Danny boy was surplus property after hitting -314 for St. Paul of the American Association Furillo Was Hardly Cut Out To Be Dodger, But The Arm Skines, With Little Fanfare By JOHN McCALLUM NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — A large number of Brooklyn fans — who still yearn, subconsciously or otherwise, for the daffy days of Babe Herman — perhaps will never understand the calm, business-like way Carl Anthony Furillo goes about playing baseball. Their peculiar attitude is gummed up In a statement which one of them made the other day. "Sure, Carl can play with the best of "em," said the cash customer, "but you gotta be a real Brooklyn bum to make the grade here. The trouble with Furillo is, he's too quiet, never gets mad. They'll never make a bum outta him!" When tho Cubs' Bob Rush skulled the Dodger right fielder at Ebbets Field, railblrds cried "beanball." It was suggested later best | growth above the eye, spoiling my • • • • vision. Glasses did not h'elp, but an eye operation in January has me seeing clearly again.

If Seer Branch Rickey didn't know for sure then he was going to Ghift to Pittsburgh, he must have had a premonition. As for Danny, there's still a question whether he was promoted or demoted. The question, however, doesn't ?eem to affect his oerforrn- ance. After further apprenticeship with IndianapoliK, Danny moved up to the Buccaneers in 1950 to hit .292 in 79 pames and play a slick shortstop and third base. * . • Bonus Warner, who should recognize an infielder, predicted. "Danny will develop into a great, great ball player." Danny came back thifi season from two years in the Army and promptly set about making Honus look good. He settled at third after a short whirl at second, yet his natural position Is shortfitop. He's ;uick, has great hands and a good arm. His hitting hovers around .300, with a fair sprinkling of home runs. Danny'll be around for a long time. And not always unsung. Football Stars Deflated LAFAYETTE, Ind. (IP)— Miss Marian Brown of.

"I tried that play 10 times before 'way out in front of the plate like i It Worked," he confesses, this, and your timing, swing, I Furillo set something of a high- stride, eyes — everything gets off' Jumping mark spearing Johnny Carl Furillo that pitchers in the future found deliberately throwing at batters' heads should be taken out of the game, even suspended. "What the heck," said Furillo, "they have to make a living. I don't think any pitcher actually tries to hit a man in the head. They just want to knock you down, or maybe if they really want to get you they'll try to hit you in the back, that's all." Carl Furillo is a genuine nine- inning ball player, no part-time worker. Muscular, dark-haired, agreeable, there's no side to the guy, no strut, no effort to pretend that playing in the big leagues is anything more than a job. Ask him why his batting average isn early 100 points above 1952'sl production, and he says, matter of factly: "Hitting Is a matter of timing. I was bothered last season with a and you pop up." Furillo and Pee Wee Reese are the last of the Larry MacPhail regime, are both enjoying one of their best years. Carl climbed into the Cubs' series batting .324, including 11 homers, four triples, 17 doubles and 48 runs batted in, This compared to eight homers, one triple, 18 doubles and 59 runs bati ted in all last year! Carl, 31, six-foot. 190 pounds, has been on the Dodger varsity since 1946, his .294 lifetime batting average being the seventh among active National League players. The Arm's amaizng comeback got him a spot in the All-Star Game. "A lot to having a good year is luck." says the Italiano, philosophically. "I've had my share of breaks this season. So many things have to be just right ror a good year. Above all, you've got to be mentally and physically sound." Furillo broke into organized ball as a pitcher with Pokomoke. City of the Eastern Shore League in J940, had a 2-3 record when promoted to Reading, Pa. "The Dodgers purchased the Heading franchise shortly after, me with It," explains Carl. "I've been Brooklyn property ever since."
