!4 Logonsport Pharos-Tribune Tuesday Evening, Oct. 4, 1941 Indications Points To Bitterly-Fought World Series Yankees and Dodgers Rated Evenly Matched Preacher Roe and Ed Lopat Expected to Be Starting Pitchers in First Game Wednesday. ; NEW YORK, Oct. 4—(UP)—Whew, it was close, they all say, and the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers, recovering rapidly frorti the strain of their bruising pennant battles, agreed on only one thing today: '-That the World Series opening tomorrow at Yankee Stadium figures to be just as tight. •• If it is, the issue won't be decided until the ninth inning of the seventh game, for" nothing could be closer than the Iwo pennant races were. After battling only 16 days short of six months without deciding the winners, they finally were determined in the last three hours of the 1949 majdr league Mason on Sunday. The rival pilots, Casey Stengel of the Yankees and Hurt Shotton of the Dodgers acted coy and refused to divulge any information on their series plans. But, like their players, they •greed the series was a toss-up with each one confident his club will win. "Just look at the two ball clubs," Stengel said. "And how can you pick between them? virtually c e r t a i n j laurels on the strength of being indications choices for personal awards were: | the .N'ational League "batting king Manager of the year — Casey i with a .S42 mark and playing Stengel of the Yankees. j evsi-y game for a pennant winner.

Of course, we know •we're going to win, just like we knew all season long we were going to win the American League pennant. "But we know its going to be tough—maybe cyan tougher than it •wai winning the pennant." tUmtton CmfMerft Shotton, usually pictured as a gentle, kindly man. was short ant; •nappy when it came to discussing the series, but he did go BO far as to "Probably the breaks will decide the winner—just as they did In our pennant triumph. "I said ail winter long we were going to win the pennant. We did. Now I say wj are going to win the series. We will." There was a chance that both managers would announce their starting lineups and pitchers at noon today. It was almost a sure bet that Stengel will, but no one knew just what Shotton might do. There were indications he would continue the" practice of the '.. 1947 subway series when he refused to name his starting pitcher until just before each day's game. He said he didn't want "to worry . my pitchers." ' It still figured to be atring- Preacher Roe, a left hander who won 15 games, for the Dodgers, against stocky Ed Lopat, another southpaw, for the Yankees. Lopat also registered 15 triumphs,' ; but he lost 10 while Roc dropped "but six. The stadium, where the first .•and second games of the series will be played tomorrow and Thursday, Is considered more.fa- vorable for left'handed pitchers than Ebbets Field, for the lett field fence In the home of the : Yankees is much farther than -that at Ebbets Field. On the other hand, the right field home run in the stadium Is much easier than in '•'• Brooklyn. ^ The odds still had the Yankees favorites, from Z to i down to 6 to 5. But New York bookmakers reported that thus faV there : seemed to b* more Brooklyn money showing for the short end than ther« was Yankee backing at ; f»Torite odds.

There can be no doubt that Stengel Is home free. The 58-year-old Missourian was not conceded a chance to finish better than third in the pre-season dope. But he weathered a staggering total of 70 injuries to his players with superb jockeying ot his forces—and won the pennant by beating baseball's two best pitchers in the two final days of the season. It was an inspired bit of handling, from start to finish. The honor was a long time coming for' the man with the jug-han- He led the league with 36 stolen bases and was second in hits with 203 and in runs batted in with 124. Newcombe could have been a 20- game winner if he had been with the Dodgers all season. He didn't get to make his first start until May 22 and still managed a 17 and 8 mark. His fast ball was the talk ot rival American Leaguers in the all-star game, even though he was tagged as the loser.
