MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 15 J| 1936 NINE BIG LEAGUE FROSH GET ROUGH PADDLING Out of the Pressbox -By Al Mitchell- 1 RUTH-LESS DAY FOR THE first time since 'way tack in 1915 when Babe Ruth was a rookie pitcher with the Boston Red Sox the curtain was run up on the major league baseball season without the presence of the most colorful figure the game has developed. * * * IT'S SORT of shocking--this thought of a Ruth-less opening day. The big slugger, glorying in the colorful inaugural ceremonies, generally came through with one of his prodigious homerun wallops. He was always at his best on dress-up occasions. * « * THE QUESTION quite naturally comes to mind--just what type of ball player is destined to step into the role of national baseball hero? There will be an idol--you can safely bet on that. There always has been. It's part of the game. * # * WILL THIS new idol be a slugger? One whose batting feats wil pale the Babe's efforts to insignificance ? If so it will have to be a new and yet unsung hero. The crop of heavy hitters now operating in the .big leagues--the Gehrigs, the Foxx es, the Greenburgs, the Troskys, the Bergers and their like--may bea Ruth's amazing record of 60 home runs in a single season; but thai does not mean that they will be pro. claimed "another Babe Ruth' 01 make the Sultan Swat's great repu tation suffer. For one reason, the; had their chance to outshine Rutt while he was still an active player- and they failed. For another, tim is certain to magnify the Babe's he roic hatting feats. * * * THE CHANCES are the pendvi him will swing the other way an a defensive player--a great pitch er perhaps, will earn the popula acclaim. If Dizzy Dean had come along a few years later he might- well have been the man. A great pitcher with oodles of color. Dean's antics and chatter were amusing for a time but have grown a bit wearisome after too much repetition. * * * PERHAPS THE baseball public will take a great all-around ball player to its heart . . . a player of Ty Cobb's stamp. But Ty Cobbs don't come along more than once in a lifetime any more than do Babe Ruths. If Joe DiMaggio, starting his first major league campaign, lives up to the. great reputation which preceded him, he is a logical candidate for the hero role. * * * IT'S ALL a matter of conjecture. Go ahead and think about it--your guess is likely to be as good or better than mine. * * * NOBLE EXPERIMENT ONE OF those "noble experiments" in sport is about to be tossed in the discard. As I recall, it was John Bunn, former Kansas athlete and head basketball coach at Stanford during recent years, who convinced his associates in the southern division of the Pacific Coast conference they should eliminate the center jump. * * * THE STANFORD mentor was so aggressive . . - also sincere . . . in his advocacy of the "new deal" in the cage sport that all conference games in the southern sector (Continued on Pane 101 Bats Rattle in Opening Games of Major Season BE^GAZETTE Leads Cub Assault YORK SCRAP DRAWS GREATEST TO GATES BILL HERMAN National Boxscores CHICAGO--12 AB H I'O A li 0 II 0 Galnn cf Hor'iin 2b Kloln rf lartnctt c ne'arce If -inmi Ib Hack Hh V'rnckr, P Kowallk p TOTALS 45 18 27 14 BROOKLYN--5 AB H I'O A Eck'rdl rf 4 0 0 0 B'd'ray rf 1 0 1 0 Cooney Baseball Standings AMERICAN' LEAGUE W L I'et.

By ANDY CLARKE Associated Press Sports Editor The long trek down summer's' baseball lane was under way Wednesday with the batsmen marching triumphantly at the head .of the procession. The sun came down like a benediction Tuesday after rainy April weather tha.t had disrupted spring training schedules and the baseball faithful thronged eight major league ball parks to sec America's national pastime ushered in with fanfare and the crash of numerous basehits. With President Roosevelt throwing out the first ball at Washington and Babe Ruth,"the retired sultan of swat, sitting on the sidelines for the first time in many a year, some 205,000 fans, the largest aggregate crowd in five years, jammed into parks in the two major circuits. Polo Grounds Packed. The largest gathering was at the Polo Grounds in New York where 55,590 saw the Giants come from behind to defeat Brooklyn S to 5. Hal Schumacher, the pitcher who was supposed to have the Indian sign en the Dodgers, retired to the showers before his mates, riding on homers by Mel Ott and Dick Bartell, overcame the efforts of George Earnshaw. veteran Dodger hurler and went on to win in the late innings. Eamshaw banged out two hits and batted in one run, but he allowed a total of 17 clean hits.

Directory OF NORTH IOWA'S BALL TEAMS NEW BOYS GIVEN ONLY 5 HITS FOR 37 TRIES AT BAT Only One of 10 Newcomers in Starting Lineups Comes Through. By SC.'OTTV UESTON Associated 1'ress Sports Writer NEW YORK, (.·!)--Just to make them respect their ciders, members of the new freshman class in the majors were roundly paddled in Tuesday's opening baseball games. The young upstarts managed to get five hits in 37 trips at bat and .137 doesn't constitute a new all- time major league record for deadly hitting. There were 10 newcomers in the starting lineups, all with very impressive sctapbooks, but only one, Jim Darn Oglesby, the Athletics' new first baseman, made anything like a significant start. Nicks Ferrcll for Two. He got two hits in four times at bat against the Red Sox' star pitcher, Wcs Ferrcll. The other outstanding- feat was performed by a 21 year old youngster whom Frankie Frisch, in desperation, shoved in to pinch hit. He was Edwin Willis Morgan, former Miami university athlete, and he did just about as well as a man can do in one trip to the plate. He hit Lon Warneke's first pitch for a homcrun and drove in two runs. Johnny Cooney, Brooklyn's veter- i an "rookie," who was last year's outstanding hitter in the American association, also managed to get a hit.

'Harrer, a member of the 1935 high school basketball squad which won the state title at Cedar Falls by beating Grinnell in the finals, is continuing his athletic competition at Notre Dame. He was recently awarded a freshman numeral for his work as a member of the Irish frosh squad the past season. Cecil Travis singled ad Carl Reynolds slapped out a two bagger that decided the issue. Spectator Shags Ball. President Roosevelt had ridden into the park in a limousine to tos s out the first ball and start a scramble that saw an unidentified spectator, more skillful at' shagging a loose'ball than the professional players, make off with the prize. In Cleveland, Lynwood Rowe started the champion Detroit Tigers off on the right foot when he shut out the Cleveland Indians 3 to 0 before 18,200. He issued four hits, fanned six and passed none as Hank Greenberg and Al Simmons took care of the batting chores. Hank drove in two funs in the first inning with a double and Simmons, newcomer to the Tiger lair, drove in the third run with a double in the sixth. Dizzy's Best Plastered. Even Dizzy Dean had little to crow about. His fancy offerings were plastered for 14 hits in six innings as the Cubs defeated the Cards 12 to 7. Dean wasn't the only one under fire in this game, however, for the Chicago ace, Lon Warneke, also had to duck as 13 hits rang off rival bats during his seven innings of service. Billy Herman, Cubs second baseman who led the league with 57 doubles last year, .banged out three to signalize this year's defense of that honor, besides getting a homerun and a single- There were new murmunngs arour.d Boston about the shortstop- ping of Joe Cronin of the plough- share jaw. who booted two as his expensive Red Sox c-utslugged the lowly Athletics to gain a 9 to 4 verdict. Connie Mack sent in four pitchers to stop the Sax assault but they were belted for 11 hits. Another ace flinger was maltreated here, Boston's Wes Ferrell being worked for 10 hits and six passes. Derringer Leaves Box. In Cincinnati it was Paul Derringer, No. 1 hurler for the Reds, who was treated rudely. The Pirates batted him from the box in the third inning and went on to win 8 to 6. Bud Hafey, nephew of the retired Chick, hammered out the first round trip blow of the season when he leaned on one in the first inning. It was a battle of extra base hits in Chicago where the White Sox defeated the SI. Louis Browns 7 to 6. Johnny Whitchcad and Ivy Andrews were forced to abdicate the hill in this game as the Browns collected nine hits and the White Sox three more. The Phils took the first of what was expected to be a long series of falls out of the Boston Bees, 4 to 1, as Curt Davis limited the Bostonians to four safe blows. The Phillies made all of their runs off Danny MacFayden in the third. Altogether there was a total of 16-t hits, o-' which 12 were homers, in the eight games.
