PAGE «—NAPGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), TtTESPAY,JKTT. 4, 1949 Yanks, Dodgers Preparing For Series Opener Tomorrow Brooks Holds Drill In Stadium Today Weary baseball fans heaved a 4feh of relief today and settled back, for a well earned rest. That te,-until tomorrow. - The ^pennant chase that ended Sunday was XB nerve-wracking on the fans as it was the players. j That's all over.-The New Ydrk - Yankees «dged Boston by one game in the American League. •Brooklyn out-lasted St. Louis ,by the same margin. All that remains is the-* World Series which opens at Yankee Stadium tomorrow. :. T<h« Yankees, early favorites to *rin the series, worked out for a few hours yesterday r before having their picture taken. Tired, but .bietipy. Manager Casey Stengel remarked "Well, I'm satisfied with the work-out—nobody .got 'hurt." Joe IMMaggio, who asked to be tekec from the game in the ninth faming Sunday because of fatigue, looked more like his old self. '• Di ilAg still •underweight from hi> recent virus infection, was swinging powerfully. Joe said he thought his timing was getting better. No Pitchers Named Stengel refuses to name his starting pitcher for tomorrow, b\it most observers believe it will be Eddie Lopat. the southpaw who won 15 games during the season. Brooklyn Manager Burt Shotton,, who put his Dodgers through the paces this morning at Yankee Stadium, also refuses to indicate •whirti pitcher he'll open with. Shotton may start Don Newcombe on Wednesday -which would give the strong right-hander a chance to work three times if the series goes the limit. It may be Shotton will give the call to Preaohcr Roe, the slender lefty. Shotton isn't talking about his opening pitcber, but Bur.t still is praising the Phillies who lost the ft-" (fame to Brooklyn Sunday. "Why," said Shotton, "Thosa Phillies aren't more than a year or so away from winning the pennant." Stengel and Shotton. were preparing ior the series, -but another n-anager. Joe McCarthy of the Boston Red Sox, had no such worries. McCarthy returned to Boston with his team and told, a crowd of more than 1,000 fans "Why, we never 'had a reception like this when I was -with the Yankees and we were the winners." --'-. McCarthy says he doesn't know •whether hell return to his home in. Buffalo,;!^. Y., or return to New- York for the, series. At that point, Joe was ascked "How about next year, win you be back with Boston?" McCarthy replied "if you want me back, write that in your .^tory," he told.the reporters. Joe refusid to discuss Sunday's game or explain why he called on seldom used Tex Hughson in relief when he had Jack Kramer and Walt Masterson in the bullpen. "We lost" strugged McCarthy, "That's all. What more can you say. You can't take any credit away from the Yankee*. They fcustled. and .won it the hard way." The runner-up club in the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals, began the job of returning money accepted for World Series tickets. The last minute collapse of the Cardinals left the front office with the task of returning some *2,000,000 in certified checks. NHS Gridder Injured In JV Game Freshman Glenn Dansby Suffers Broken Right Leg Glenn Dansby, of 84 South Main street, a freshman tackle with the Naugatuck High school junior varsity football team, suffered a broken right leg yesterday in a game with the Seymour High JV's, at i-rench Field, Seymour. The game was won by Seymour, 12-6. .Dansby was injured in a pile-up on the first play of the third quarter. He was removed to St. Mary's hospital, Waterbury, in the Naugatuck Community ambulance, where X-rays were taken yesterday. The leg was placed in a cast today. His los^ will be greatly felt by the junior varsity squad and by the varsity. Glenn had played the whole game against the Seymour seconds and bad seen a few minutes of action with the varsity against Wilby last Saturday. Seymour pushed over a touchdown in the second and another in the third quarter to take a 120 lead over the locals. Both trys for the extra point from placement were smothered. The locals received a break in the final period, when a Seymour pass was intercepted on the Seymour 30-yard line. The Greyhounds lost six yards in three downs, but a last down pass to Clisham clicked and the speedy back went for a first down on the Seymour 12. A line play picked up one yard and then Jimmy McCann crashed over tackle for the score. The try for the extra point went wide.

Yale's gridsters are scheduled to play Columbia this Saturday' at New York. As yet. however, a ban imposed because of Polio has not been lifted.

Y. at New Haven Teachers, all on Saturday. Pressure Off The (pressure will be off when Wesleyan tangles with '.Coast Guard. The Cardinals had a'23- gam:e winning streak which dated ,back to 1942, isince ithey didn't Dla'y during the war. The strain of maintaining this record mounted with each game, but now, thanks to a 26-0 licking at the hands of Bowdoin, the Wetsmqen don't have to worry . v Nbrjmi Daniels, who hadn't lost a game aa Wosleyan's head coach, predicts: "we'll bounce back. The spirit is good and we saw several encouraging' signs Saturday." Coast Guard, which lost 'Saturday to Amherst, 27-13 may depend upon its aerial attack to keep the Cardinals off balance. It was -chiefly passes that ker-t the cadets in the game last weekend. University of Connecticut grid- sters show signs of developing a flashy offense. The Huskies' play had boen featured mostly <by lack of irr.'aKinaticm., three off-tackle smashpi'i and a. ipunt, but Saturday they opened up a bit with laterals and forwards which kept both opponents and fans on their toes. Trinity's green but energetic team, including several isoloho- mores, committed about every mistake in the book against Williams, but bounced back each time to regain the lead and finally to surge ahead. The Hilltoppers aren't expected to have much trouble against Norwich. Uniteds Down Yale Soccer Team, 5-3 The Naugatuck United soccer team won one and lost one game over the weekend.

Mace, Vigeant Fight Tonight Hartford, Oct. 4—Carey Mace and Frank Vigeant, two determined state weltereweights aiming for Vic Garden's title, tangle in a ten- rounder at the Auditorium tonight. The winner progresses in a new series to develop a challenger for the state welter title-holder, and meets Sal DiMartino at a future date. Out of that winner versus DiMartino match emerges a challenger who will battle it out with Cardell for the title. Only a Week ago DiMartino surprised with a convincing victory over Cardell and threw open wide the contest now in progress to develop a challenger. Vigeant is after a title he held until Cardell wrested it a month or so ago. Frank thought he could succesfully defend it in a bout with a foe who had been fighting steadily, while Vigeant had been out of action for six months.: He learned differently, but with another fight under his belt, a victory over Rollie Johns scored on the Pep-Compo card, Vigeant thinks he's ready again ,to contend for the title.
