LOUIS (AiP) — Colorful, tough Minnie Minoso remained in serious condition with a fractured skull Saturday. His manager says "the next 48 hours will determine whether there are any complications." The 39-year-old Cuban, hampered by an injured rib muscle all season, crashed into a concrete wall in Friday night's St. Louis Cardinal-Los Angeles Dodger game. The Cardinal left fielder was chasing a fly ball When he hit the fence. He slumped to the ground, the ball under his body.

His head and face were swollen and bleeding when teammates carried him from the field. Manager Johnny Keane visited Minoso Saturday. "It looks like he'll be out for an extended period—at least a Keane 'said. month anyway, A late medical report said Minoso was listed as serious. His condition has improved over Friday night arid there is no evidence of any pressure on the brain. He is being treated at Jewish Hospital. .

All olher finals will be contested Saturday beginnng at 1:30 p.m., (CDT).
