After that it was Wlllio Mays lenving for the Army. Then Larry Janscn losing hla effectiveness and Mnglio hurting his back and Bobby Thomson mysteriously losing his fielding touch at third base. The recent return of Irvln to the lineup hns supplied some inkling of what might have been. Monte started right in to whale the ball us he did last year; but he found that his enthusiasm was lost on a set of teammates who no longer believed in themselves.

Charles City Labor Day Celebration 2 BIG DAYS OF STOCK CAR RACING Out field Tips in Play Given by Woodling By MILTON RICHMAN NEW YOUK (UP) -- Outfielcling, explains Gene Woodling of- the Yankees, is like dodging automobiles. . ; . . . , . · : · . . · · - . "U you don't get that good ump," he says, "you're licked." The best possible way an out- ielder can get. a jump on a batted ball is to watch the hitter, not he pitcher, according to Woodling. Watch the Hitter "A lot of young outfielders make he mistake of watching their pitcher all the time," he says. "I'd advise them to focus their attention on the hitter or else .hey'll be in for trouble. · "Like an infielder, an outfielder las _to figure out plays in advance particularly when there are men on base. One of the worst crimes ah outfielder can commit is throwing to the wrong base." When it comes to fielding ground sails, Woodling explains it is besl .o play it safe when the bases are empty. Have to Gamble "Get down on one knee so the ball doesn't get through you," he says, "but only when there's no one on base. When there arc run ners on base, you have no choice You have to gamble, especially i: there are runners in scoring po sillon. In cases like that, you come in on the ball like an infield er and get your throw away as soon as possible." In making throws to the plate. Woodling says, "You must hit the relay man if the ball is fieldec deep in the outfield. You can waste a strong arm by trying to make too long a throw.' 1 On fly balls that either one o Lwo outfielders can catch, the Yankees use the "call-and-answcr system. ' Yankee System "The fielder who feels- he .can make the catch yells, 'I got it!' ' Woodling explained. "He then lis tens for the fielder next to him to answer, 'Go ahead!" If h doesn't get that answer, he i stumbling around in the dark." On line drives hit near the fence Woodling says he tries to get ti the fence as soon as possible am then work his way away from i so that he knows how much room he has. Here is another tip: "Always check how the wine is-blowing .by looking at the flag, atop the ball park," the; Yankei outfielder cautions.

ANNA SCHMERTMAN, CLARA ZUMDAHL, JENNIE KOTTMAN, LETTIE DE BUHR, Owners Al Van Loh, Freeport, Illinois, Auctioneer American Association Picks Don Bollweg as Most Valuable LOUISVILLE (UP)--Don Bollweg, Kansas City first baseman, was chosen the most valuable player in the American Association Friday by the league's baseball writers from eight cities. The 30-year-old first sacker, who started in the St. Louis Cardinal farm chain 10 years ago, received votes from four of the cities in the Association. A consensus of baseball writers in each city counted as one vote in the balloting. Bollweg spent spring training with the New York Yankees, but the American League pace-setters sent him to their Triple-A Kansas City club when it appeared they had a wealth o£ first basemen. At latest compilation, Bollweg was batting .343 and the left-handed slugger had 12 home runs, 14 triples and was one of the club's leaders in runs-batted-5n. Before 1950, he had never batted .300 in his life. Following a .313 mark at Rochester in 1950, the Cards brought him up for a few games but soon sold him to Kansas City.
