"That's right," put in Simmons, as he finished his turn at the plate, "I don't like to admit I can't got a heavier stick around as fast as 1 did once, but Mike, there, seems to have the dope. That belt sure felt good." * * * To a man, the world's champion. Tigers look on Al, bought from the White Sox during the winter, as the boy who'll just about sew up Detroit's third straight American league pennant and Simmons, who is blasting the horsehide with all his former poxver, is delighted to be back with a winner and predicts he's in for another of those fence busting years he enjoyed while with the Philadelphia Athletics. He was glad to take Manager Cochranc's tip to shift from a 35 to a 33-ouncc hickory in order not to hit behind the ball. The Tigers' smart young manager has a theory that as a ball played grows older he should decrease the weight of his bats. Simmons never would. Last season he fell below the .300 mark for the first time in hi3 12 years of major league campaigning. "He ought to make a whale of a difference in our club," went on Cochrane. "Do you realize we won two pennants with only one .300 hitter in the o u t f i e l d ? Last season it was Pete Fox; the year before, Goose Goslin." Ag for Simmons, he says the present setting is perfect. "Cochrane is an old friend of mine, the prospect of being with a winner and maybe cutting in on other world's scries isn't hard to lake, and the Detroit ball park is made to order for me. "Maybe my bats were too heavy, but that wasn't all of the trouble in Chicago. I just couldn't hit in the White Sox park. "I feel differently about Detroit, I always did well there, just aa in Philadelphia." Along with the rest of the Bengals, Al picks the Tigers again, but he advises one and all to keep an eye on the New York Yankees.
