' Dated this 14th day' of February, 11355. GERALDINE LISTON, Clerk. By DONNA SIMMONS, D. C. Guy \Valls. Atty. Ed B. Cook, Atty. ad. Litem. 2/15-22-3/1-8 !7«/L Sporis Roundup Q>^ Pitchers Don't Make Pilots NEW YORK (AP) — We've thought on it and thought on it and still do not understand for sure why big league pitchers fail to make t'.ie grade as managers after their arms play out. They can become highly valued as coaching assistants, but the No. 1 job throws them. Of the 16 pilots who will open spring drills on March 1, not a one ever sneaked over a spitball or creased a batter's skull. With the departure of Freddie Hutchlnson from the Detroit, helm during the winter the most recent experiment with a former thrower has failed, and we have a feeling'you will not see another for a long time. Few Successful Going into the 1055 campaign, the managerial lineup will include 10 former infielders, three ex. catchers and three ex-outfielders. The only pitcher we can locate who seems to have shown any real ability as a manager after he left the mound was Clark Griffith, and that was a long time back. Since then, to recall only those who come quickly to mind, such outstanding curvers as Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson, Bob S h a w k e y, FVed Fltzslmmons Bucky Walters,* Ted Lyons and Burlclgh Grlmosltook'a shot tit the main Job with signal lack of success. Mostly they found themselves fired in fairly short order. Almost invariably, the indictment has been that they didn't know how to handle men. We once asked a former catcher, since a manager, how he accounted for this failure of the hill heroes to get along with and ge't the most out of their talent. His answer was rather abrupt. .„.».:. "Too Self-Centered" "Most of them are too self- centered during their pitching days," he said. "They think they're the whole damn show and that the rest of us are there just to fill out the side. They still have this lofty attitude when they start managing. They don't know how to come down and get close to their men, "When they try to direct tactics they only display their ignorance. When they're not actually pitching most of them just lean brwk on the bench and cloze, so thcv never learn a whole lot about the inside of,the gnme,". That's the best explanation we've ever gotten, and it will have to do until a better one is offered.
