Goodman Can't Tkrow or Run too Well or Hit Long 'Ball — But He's One-Man Bosox Club By MURRAY OLDERIIAM BOSTON — (NBA) — The boys in the dugout were watching an emaciated, hunched- over ball player loping around second base in pre-game practice. "He can't throw, he can't run much," a veteran shook his head, "and he can't hit the long ball—" "Neither could Eddie Stanky," broke in another. "Just give me nine Billy Goodmans, and I've got a ball club." It's a toss-up between the Red Sox handyman and Billy Cox of the Dodgers which is the unlikeliest looking ball player in the majors — scrawny, gawky specimens, with faultless execution of the fundamentals. Where Cox is an extraordinary glove man, Goodman is the super batsman — and handles a skillful glove besides. There's no pitch the slim North Carolinian can't hit and no position he can't play. In his five years with the Bosox he's been used successfully at every infield and outfield position. In 1949 he was the American League's best first baseman. Right now he's comfortably settled for a long stay at second base, which he inherited from retired Bobby Doerr last year. • • » Billy's vagabonding around the lineup has kept the spotlight off him — that and the effortless way line drives careen off his bat. His seeing-eye stickwork compiled a .354 mark to lead all American League hitters in 1950. As a big leaguer, Billy's averaged a smooth .311. Of all the money Tom Yawkey's expended to bring Boston a winner, none has brought better returns than the $75,000 laid out to purchase Goodman from Atlanta in 1947. With Billy just 27 years old, all the dividends aren't in yet. Spencer is the Class D Alabama- Florida league's top twirler and has an average of one strikeout per innings.
