Bcknick- ered Bobby demonstrated that fact once more as he scored nn impressive 2-up victory over U.S, Open Champion .Julius Boros of Southern Pines, N. C., in n SB-hole match play showdown.

"Concentrate on three pilches," says Spuhn, "n fust ball, a curve nnd a change-up. Trick Pitches "Knucklcrs and sliders nre fine witches to use but they're not cs- sonllnl. Besides, most pitchers can't scorn to master those trick lellvories until they're around 30 years old. "The first thing, I always' look 'or in another pitcher," explained Spahn, "Is control. That was the oiighest for me to acquire when ' began my career. "Not many fans realize that a pitcher c«n get the ball over the lalo and still bo wild, He can be vlld 'high' us we say or wild 'low. A-pitcher should know the strike ^one like he knows his first name. When Spahn faces a rival baiter for the first time, he has his own pet way of sizing him up. "Let's suppose this fellow is a cft-hnntled hitter," Spnhn clan oruled. "If he 'breaks' his left knee or shows a tendency to golf the bull, you c a n ; mark him down in your book us a low-ball hitter. Guide* to Pitcher* "But if a fellow hits off his front 'obt, the chances nre he's a hlgh- I) hitter. These guides are basically true, but you have to throw he book away with a fellow like Stan Musial, who does both anil ills high and tow pitches equally ·veil." Spahn pointed out that all of the op hurlcrs in the majors agree hat a smooth follow-through goes hand-ln-hand with low-hit effectiveness, "A pitcher should use his own style and not try to copy anyone else/' h e ' a d d e d . "He should use a c6mfoftable stance on the rubber nd he should make sure that he · getting the m a x i m u m amount of overage as he Jets the ball go. J..'Above a l l , he nhould work closely with his catcher. Neither should feel he is the boss out there. i 'ach is there to help the other and )oth of them are there to help the club." To be a consistent winner, Spahn declared, a pitcher · can't keep .browing to a batter's weakness all ,hc trTho. Power Pltchei, Too "After a while," he explained, 'a batter will overcome his weakness and you can't got h!m out that ,vay uny more. Therefore, it is mportanl to pilch to his power occasionally but m a k e sure you lave a lot more on the ball than usl your three fingers," As for picking runners off base, in art which Spahn has down pal, 10 says a pitcher has lo pick up he k n a c k for h i m s e l f . "You just don't pick a runner off y looking and throwing," ho emphasized. "You have to use good ludgmcnl and perfect timing." Sedgman to Defend U. S.
