Thursday Evening, July 11, 1957. Minors Mapping Plans for Survival By LEO H. PETERSEN United Presi Sports Editor ST. LOUIS (UP) — Faced with * drastic realignment because of the possible westward movement of the _ Brooklyn Dodgers and New . York Giants, the minor leagues started mapping plan s today for survival. ' . At a three-and-a-half hour session with baseball Commissioner Ford Frick, the heads of the nation's top minor leagues started setting up -the machinery change the minor league map as the major leagues expand. While no concrete action was taken at the special session Frick jaid Wednesday that "now at least we know each other's probr lems." But he «dded he didn't have any information as to when the Dodgers will move to Los Angeles and the Giants to San Francisco. "Actually, we found we don't know where we are going," Frick declared. "Baseball over the next few years faces the problem of growing up with the country and putting its leagues on a modern basis." The Pacific Coast League, the top •minor circuit in the country, would be the most affected if the Dodgers and Giants — and they have .until -Oct. 1 to decide — should go to the West Coast. But Frick said there was no mention of specific cities as possible new sites in the league should it lose Los Angeles and San Francisco. "We discussed, about every cily in the country during the meeting," he added. He said he did 'not bring up the subject of a third major league— which he feels sure will be established in the near future—or his proposed, change in the baseball draft, which he thinks will have to be adopted if the sport is to stay outside anti-trust legislation. Baseball Bigwigs Under Fire WASTONTON OUP) — Baseball's bigwigs, already under -fire by congressional investigators for alleged monopolistic practices, today faced a possible "intimidation" charge.

The disclosure came about after Feller was prevented from holding a baseball clinic for youngsters in Brooklyn Dodger - owned Wrigley Field in Los Angeles this week. Hillings' statement brought conflicting slatomenls from all concerned, but tho congressman said that it the House Anti-Trust Subcommittee finds "substantial evidence of reprisals against Feller because of his testimony, (hen it would ask the Department of Justice to prosecute the individuals responsible."

Tlie big right hander, who won eight games and lost three in helping the Yankees gain a 2'/a- game lead over Ihe first half o[ the campaign, is hopeful that the arm "will come around" with a proper rest.. As a result, manager Casey SLengel plans to keep Grkn out of the three-game Kansas City series with the hope he'll be ready for Sunday's crileial twin- bill against' the White' Sox. at Chicago.

EDITORS' NOTE: Baseball Hall of Funer Rogers Hornsby, former manager, most valuable player, and National L e a g.u e leading hitter for six straight years, now directs Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley's Youth Foundation. But ipark Horxetiy still has hi« old zest for outspoken hot stove sessions. Here Is the way he sees this year's American League race at the mid-season mark. • • By ROGERS HORNSBY . As Told To United Press CHICAGO, Jyly 10 (UP)-I wish I didn't have to say tills but it'i going to be the New York Yankees all the way. The only ones who even can giv« them a race of it are the Chicago White Sox. Maybe -t the beginning Cleveland, Boston and Detroit had a chance — but not any longer. I don't think this is good for baseball. I think it's time somebody whipped the Yankees bloody. But who? Cleveland had the pitching. Then the Indians lost Bob Lemon and Herb Score because of injuries. That • shot them through, with, holes, Chicago Has Pitching I thought at the beginning (ihat (Detroit might come up with some 'pitching but tho Tigers just haven't shown. As for Boston, Uiat's • turned into a club of individuals. They don't pull together. The White Sox have the pitching, more or less. Billy Pierce holds up more than his share o£ tho load. But there's no hilling. The Yankees have it every way you look. Primarily, they've got the bench. When they're forced to put in a replacement the guy usually fits in so well that the team gets strengthened. It's almost a vicious circle. The way I see Hie Yonks, they're primarily a four-man club: Yogi Bcrra, Mickey Mantle, Bill Skowron nivd Gil McDougald. At least one of these four is going to come through for you every time. Usually, all four do. Theso guys aren't hot shots. They're day-in-day-out ballplayers. Yanks Have Hiltcrs With Bcrra, Mantle, Sk-owron and McDougald as mainstays, Uio rest ot the Yanks can afford to g«t hot and cold. At least one or two of the others are going to ba hot at once so the Yanks have five, six guys smashing tho ball while the other clubs have only one or two hitters. Now you take the White Sox -and the only really dependable Hitter you find is Nelson Fox. He can't carry it all by himself. What's Hie answer? I wish I know. I like the Yankees and consider Casey Stengel and George Weiss my good friemls. But I don't think it's healthy for baseball to have one club #rnb a monopoly on championships. So it's like I said. I don't caro who wins — so long as it's not the Yankees. Read the Classified Ad; FARM BUREAU OFFICER INDIANAPOLIS (DP) — Mrs. Guy E.
