-SIS IN BIG L«[ Boy Bomber and Mis Boomb'mg Bat Young Bohemian Sancllot- ter Runs American Pitchers to Cover. . BY WILLIAM HRAIICHKK ' NBA Service Sports K'Jitor I CLEVELAND.—A big, blond Bo- I hernlan ball buster from trie eand- ! . lots'' has eonie back to his horn?! town to play witft the Indians— and his home town has become Vosmlk-riiir.dcd. ' His name Is Joe. Out In In; left field bleachers and along the side of the pavilion where thousands ol handle-bar miut:i:h? have begun to bloom this season where none grew before, the customers from Cleveland's South £ 'rise to their feet every time the blond boy makes a move—an-.l shout—"conic on Josef!" With an amazing succession o' ringing hits this boy fro:n th- snnrtlots has started Hie season a- no other rookie broke In here before. To put it mildly, the town Is crazy about t!ic boy. He .started with a tremendous rush. They kept him on HID sidelines for the opening game, fearing tin- crowd would make him nervous That was a mistake. Crowds don't make him nervous, in his first 2; times at bat lie blas'.ed a -^onr run, two triples, five doubles mil six singles. He Was. hit Fiber's sp'.t- ters and White-hill's rlartln? curve ball. He hits 'cm from around hi; - knees or across his shoulders. He -slams low balls on the outside or staging fast ones close to his shoulders. * * * .Will thc kid prove n flaso in (lie pan?

Soft! i the combative splril of baseball changing? Are the brave ol: days when a. catcher who blockc: he plate and took a chance on get ing a mouthful of spiked f??; gone forever? Following his injury the other lay. Babe Ruth propped himself u; n bed and 'spake as follows: ' "That's what you get for tryin'- b avoid hurting another player. Fifteen years ago I would have slic pikes first Into any catcher thai ricd to block me from (he plate and I'd cut him to piecss If he :idn'l. get out of my way." '-When Rulh crashed Into Charley Bdrry, Red Sox catcher, lie "gave him the hip'' Instead of th? spikes \lr. Ruth's hip Isn't what It'used 0 be evidently. Anyway, the Bafcj vas culled safe and a short tinif ater was carried -to a hospital. • * • Ye Olden Days Ruth doesn't have to go back 15 years lo find dirty work at the jlate. In the world series of 1927 between the Pirates and Yankees, . ,„,, Bob Meussl challenged "Oil" Smith. ' d age ' Ihe Pirate catcher, with "just stand anywhere near that, plate when I come In." Smith, a jockey of the old school, had .been riding Mcu.=el unmercifully. Meusel has a flaming temper, and when the remarks took on what he deemed a personal shade he resented the kidding. When tic camo to bat late In the game he turned to Smith: "If I get around to third base. I'm going to come right in. Stick around somewhere near tills plate and you'll get yours." It happened that Meusel did get around to third, and he did go in like Eichcnlaub going throuijli D paper hoop. Somehow thc ball got away from Smith, however, and the crash that Meusel planned failed to materialize. Helping the Kids. Big leaguers have changed fro:i: what they were ten years ago, li ssems to me. In thc days when Ring Lardner was writing basobal! for thc Chicago Tribune, regular: used to razz rookies unmerciful!' A rooklc'had to have a pretty thick skin (or skull) to take it. Lardue: wrote books based on actual happenings of this sort. But now, ft Is not uncommon to see regulars instructing youngsters and helping them to make the grade. Detroit this year furnishes a specific Instance. Marvin Owen, youthful shortstop, came to the Tigers this spring from Seattle. He Is a Santa Clara college boy, with four montlis of professional baseball experience, u-i; since his first appearance with D3- trolt, he has Improved remarkably He knows where to play, it appears for every batter In thc league, and comes up with ground balls near third base or back of second regularly. How come Well, If you watch Marty M~Manus. the veteran third bns:ni3n. who Is Marv's roommate, a iui Charley Gchringer. the n»;rle-,< 1 second sackcr ot thc Tigers? you ; may see the reason. Owen waters It^em. They wave him this way or | that for certain batters. Somc- | times he plays close, sometimes far : to the left, at other times to th: right. i Just a couple of regulars trying | lo help -i kid make cood.
