MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. APRIL 10 1936 201,000 WILL SEE MAJORS OPEN ON TUESDAY POLO GROUND TO SEE OLD BATTLE AND BEST CROWD Cincinnati, Cleveland Look for Sellouts as Leagues Open Summer Runs. NEW YORK, (.«--With capacity crowds anticipated at three oj the eight opening day games, major league club officials estimate that approximately 201,000 persons will see the games get away next Tuesday. The old feud between the Dodgers and the Giants in the Polo grounds will probably bring the largest crowd of the day. All reserved seats have been sold and it looks as if there will be 58,000 in the stands with any sort of break in the weather. The Reds-Pirates game in Cincinnati and the Tigers-Indians battle in Cleveland are the other probable sellouts. More than 25,000 reserved seats have already been sold in Cincinnati, leaving only 8,000 more to go. The capacity of the Cleveland park is 25,000. Being the nominal No. I ball tosser of the nation, President Roosevelt, after a short spring training trip in the south, will be on hand to help the Senators play host to the New York Yankees, But even this spectacle has given no evidence of a sellout. Only 20,000, or 12,000 less than capacity, are expected. One of the most interesting spectacles of the day, Connie Mack's visit with the Atliletics of the present to play against the Athletics of the past, now the Boston Red Sox figures to draw about 20,000, which is 5,000 more than the other Boston team is likely to play before in its game against the Phillies in Phila delphia. Upper Iowa to Open With Wartburg, Drop Cyclones FAYETTE--The Upper lowa-Iowi State baseball game, scheduled fo, Friday this week, has been can celed because of cold weather am the unsatisfactory condition of the "Upper Iowa diamond.

Boston Clubs to Start Three-Game City Sera BOSTON, (JP--The "million dollar" Red Sox and the renovated Bees, formerly the Braves, attracted Boston's baseball fans to National league park here. The Hub's representatives in the American and National leagues were scheduled to meet in the first of a three game inter city series. Joe Cronin planned to start Wes Ferrell, Sox pitching ace, and Danny MacFayden won the Bees' pitching assignment from Bill McKechnie. Senators, Phils to Take .

Night Game Voted Out as Forest City Squad Plans for New Season FOREST CITY--The Forest City ~.\ Collegian baseball team is being reorganized this week. There will be no night baseball this season, as the plan has been found to be too expensive. Many who played with the team last summer will join the club again this season. MAT STUNTS ARE OUT OF PROGRAM Wrestlers (Not Rasslers) See Action Here---Until Last Few Minutes of Bout. Olaf Gregerson's knee driven into Leo Alexander's stomach in the third fall of their match Thursday night spoiled the first wrestling (not 'rassling) exhibition to be seen at the armory in many a moon. Until Gregerson began roughing and resorting to Texas rule methods, the match had been a fine exhibition, wrestled at a furious pace. Alexander, former Notre Dame mat coach, won two out of three falls from the portly Dane. Through most of the match he was ahead, being too fast for Gregerson to catch. When the Dane got a hold on Alexander the Notre Dame man would break it with eel-like maneuvers, squirming and twisting himself free. Alex Plays Rough, Too. A tortuous body scissors clamped on by Alexander caused Gregerson to give up 20 minutes after the match started. Gregerson won the second fall with a headlock and body press, .the only time during the entire match that he looked impres- re. Ola$ began playing rough in the last part of the match but Alexander equaled him at that style of the mat game also, tossing the Dane out of the ring and winning after minutes with a figure four scissors. What practically amounted to an exhibition of the big man's strength saw the Cardiff Giant toy with Rollie Anderson and end the uneven match in 4 minutes. The massive Giant, appearing with a black foliage on his face, strongly resembled Man Mountain Dean in appearance. The end came in an unusual manner. Too Much to Handle. The Cardiff Giant had leaped at Anderson and missed, dazing himself as he shook the ring with his 365 pounds; Anderson quickly grasped the huge bulk and hoisted him up, apparently attempting an airplane spin, but the 365 pounds were too much for him to support and he fer to the canvas, with the pachyderm falling upon him to win by a body press. John Evko of Chicago won from John Podubny of Russia when Referee Walter Logan of Salt Lake City disqualified the Russian for continual use of the strangle hold in the opening match. The finish came in 25 minutes and the irate Podubny attacked Logan. The referee more than held his own, despite his street apparel, tossing the Russky out of the ring.

Bill Terry ... Pittsburgh .. Pie Traynor .. Brooklyn ., Casey Stengel .. Cincinnati .. Charles Dressen By L. E. SKELLKY Associated Press Sports Writer. DBS MOINES, (.T)--Those rowdy young men of St. Louis, often called the "gas house" gang, will replace the Chicago Cubs as champions of the National league. That is the opinion of 70 per cent of the Iowa sports editors who disclosed their choices for the Associated Press in a statewide poll. There were a good many "if's" connected with the selection of Frank Frisch's rough and ready boys. There were such qualifications as "it is the Cards if the Deans behave" and "the Cards will win if Frisch and Charley Gelbert go tho full route and Roy Parmelee comes through." It was generally agreed that St. Louis has a better ball club than the Cubs when everything is going well with Frisch's temperamental troupe. Five writers, however, said they believed the Cubs would repeat. They argued that Charley Grimm has a young, hustling club with plenty of strength, both regular and reserve, to nip the Cards in a tight-battle The poll disclosed that the Iowa writers were definitely off the New York Giants whom they chose last year, only to see Bill Terry's club do another late season fadeout. So poorly did the writers think the Giants' chances they named them for fourth place. Variations from the fourth place consensus were one first vote, a few third place choices and one ballot for the Giants to drop into the second division. Most of the sports editors said the Giants were getting old in several vital positions and badly needed new blood. Pittsburgh was the popular third place selection. Most of the writers declared that if the Pirates got their right kind of pitching they were certain to make it hot for the Cubs and Cards. The youthful Cincinnati Reds were voted the team most likely to finish at the top of the second division, a notch higher than in 1935. One writer gave Charley Dressen's hustling Reds a good chance to finish in the first division. Brooklyn still will be the "Daffy Dodgers" in the opinion of most of the writers. Despite Casey Stengel's efforts to cure the Dodgers of their clownish performances, they're doomed to sixth place this year. Philadelphia was awarded the seventh spot for 1936. One writer thought the Phillies might creep into fifth place and two others saw a sixth position, but the majority agreed Philadelphia could do no better than seventh. Boston, by an overwhelming vote, was named the eighth place team. James Wilson Hank Greenberg Moves to Cleanup Post for Tiger CHARLESTON, W. Va.. l.T)-- Hank Greenberg probably will be i the clean-up slot when the Tigei resume their scries with the Cincin nati Reds here. Cochrane plans t shift Al Simmons from fourth to fifth. He may try Gerald Walker in Goose Goslin's left field post. Either Don Ross or Gil English. :n- fielders. will be sent to Toledo this week or next. Al Hollingsworlh was expected to pitch for the Reds and Tommy Bridges for the Tigers. The teams were due in Cincinnati at midnight. WRESTLING By TI1K ASS(I lA NORTH BKItfiKN.
