Fourteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Cubs' Drott Boomed for Rookie Honor NEW YORK (UP) — Manager Bob Scheffing feels his last-place Chicago Cubs could produce the National League's rookie of the year in 20-year-old pitcher Dick Drott. The right-handed Drott, who •popped into prominence when he struck out 15 Milwaukee batters on May 26, currently has a 4-6 record but Scheffing claims that is misleading. "His record easily could have been the other way around if the ball had bounced right for us in some of the games he pitched," Scheffing said. "Here is a kid who is one of the best young pitchers Major League Leaders National League Player & Club .. .G. AB R. .H.

General Manager John Quinn of the Braves disclosed he made a firm trade oifer to Giant vice- president Charles (Chub) Feeney Tuesday afternoon. He refused to name the players involved but it Faber Claims Spitball Fuss Exaggerated CHICAGO (UP) — Red Faber, who parlayed a wad of chewing gum and a mtiuthful of tobacco into 252 victories for the old Chicago White Sox, said today all this current fuss about spitballs is a lot of hogwash. "I can't figure Birdie Tebbetfs going around saying Lou Burdette sneaks in spitters," said Faber, now 66. "How can a guy sneak in a spitter? It takes at least six warrr.ups before you can throw tripled for Omaha. Indians Lose 4-2 to Cheney and Omaha INDIANAPOLIS (ITP) - Tom Cheney pitched and batted the Omaha Cardinals to a 4-2 victory over the Indianapolis Indians in an American Association baseball game here Tuesday night. The Omaha righthander limited the Indians to six hits and struck out 10. In addition, Cheney banged out three singles and drove in two runs. Catcher John Romano collected two hits for Indianapolis, one a solo homer in the ninth inning. Lefttielder Sam Mele smashed a 400-foot triple for the Indians in the second and scored on third baseman Charley Williams' infield grounder. Leftfielder Don Lassetter also ..National League — Aaro.n, was learned the 3-for-l swap out- one with any accuracy, and, be. Braves, 15;. Musial, Cards, 12;jlined above was it.

"I had Drott with Los Angeles in the Pacific Coast League last season and he was the strikeout sensation of the league," explained the Cub manager. "He struck out 15 batters in a game against San Francisco and in another game he fanned 13 men in six innings against Sacramento. Drott pitched in 185 innings for me at Los Angeles and he led the league with 184 strikeouts." Zernial, Athletics, 12; Sievers, Senatro, 12; Maxwell, Tigers, 11.

According to Scheffing, Drott j Tigers, 5-1; Schmidt, Cards, 5-1. "throws something like Clay Bryant," the former Cub pitching star, 'only he isn't as wild as Bryant was. He has a fine fast ball and a great curve; best of all, he has good pitching sense." In stomping for Drott as .his rookie of the year candidate, Scheffing said he is not overlooking the Phillies' fine array of first- year pitchers. "I know they have some good ones in Jack Sanford, Don Cardwell and Dick Farrell. I'll take Drott over all of them, though. "And you know how high the Dodgers are on Sandy Koufax, don't you? Well, in my book, Drott right now is farther advanced as a pitcher than Koufax." Because of young hurlers like Drott, Moe Drabowsky and Don Kaiser, Scheffing is convinced the Cubs' cause is far from hopeless. "Our trouble has been hitting, and not pitching," he said. "No regular on our club is hitting for the 'average he is capable of. I know Ernie Banks isn't going to keep hitting .230 all year long. And I'm pretty sure guys like Lee Walls, Dale Long and Walt Moryn will pick up their averages, too." In any case, Scheffing believes his Cubs are not an eighth-place club. sides, there isn't an ump around who couldn't spot it right off." Faber, who stuck with the Sox for 20 years, said so far as he was concerned they had no right to outlaw the pitch, in the first place. "Why pick on it and leave the curve and the slider alone?" he asked. "A spitter is as honest a pitch as any other. It's no more than a knuckle ball that's thrown fast." Fate threw Faber and the spitter together back around the turn of Bears Gain Finals Of College Tourney OMAHA, Neb (UP)-California moved into the finals bracket of the NCAA college World Series today, a solid favorite to win the national collegiate baseball title for the second time in the 11-year history of the event. - .„ The Golden Bears who routed:' 0 tnrow a curve that he had to Ruler, the Preafcness winner, will Indianapolis used three pitchers, Cards Finally Defeat Cubs In LIB Play The Schiff Shoe Store Cardinals defeated the Wolf Cubs, 4 to 1, Tuesday in the. national division of Little League baseball for the first time in three seasons.

"So I like Hogan and Saead, with Finsterwald as an outside possibility." . Vic Ghezzi, the former PGA champion, horned in to add: "Personally, I like Demaret.

But the Sox crashed in 1919—10 years ahead of the rest of the nation. Faber stayed on, unimpltcated in the great scandal. In 1934, Faber, then 45, called it quits. He allegedly was unhappy because the Sox wanted to cut his 192-3 salary of ?7,500 down to $5,000. Delay Score's Return Until After Aug. 1 CLEVELAND (UP)—Cleveland pitcher Herb Score, sidelined by a severe eye injury since May 7, will be unable to return to action until at least August 1. After an eye examination Tuesday, Score was told he must remain relatively inactive for another four weeks. The treatment was prescribed by eye specialists Dr. Charles Thomas who has treated Score since the pitcher Motor Dodgers had no mercy on the defending champion Eagles Braves, whipping them 4-0 as Mike Newton threw a 6-hitter at the champs and teammate Craig White helped out with a 2-run homer in the fifth inning.

"That long iron play and • his ability to fight that wind which whips in off Lake Erie has to favor Peter Thomson," former Open king Lew Worsham asserted. "After that, lookout for Finsler- wald and Palmer." Former PGA champion Chick ! Herbert nodded confirmation. "Tliat Thomson is my man," h» said. "After that I'll lake Snead and Finsterwald." So, with the brg one just on« day away, the consensus is Hogan. But, as usual, Old Fearless is going to have to go with Slam- min' Sammy Snead.
