WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 1934 American All Stars Outslug Nationals to Capture 9-7 Game HUBBELL TOPS BALL CLASSIC AS MOUND STAR Lefty Gomez Also in Form While Simmons, Gehringer, Frisch, Medwick Batting Heroes By EDWARD J.

Then every- S. v M r, rolovnri mill ,i he second annual J jattle of the all-s-t irs turned into Jnothing so much 3i the major jleague equivalent I of the married !men vs. the single ;men at the annu- -al Sunday school picnic. H. CAKi HUfcEtLL The American lenders rinally won out, 9 to 7, with a typical blasting display that blew long Lon Warneke of the Cubs right out of the box and scattered the offerings of his successor, Van Mungo of the Dodgers, all over the premises in a six run outburst in the fifth inning. The Americans then proceeded to clinch the contest, marking their second straight victory in the two year all star series, thanks to the brilliant relief pitching of young Mel Harder of the Cleveland Indians. Rarely, however, in a match of such magnitude, has the play ever degenerated so quickly and so completely from the sublime to the ridiculous as it did after Hubbell's magnificent display. GREAT SOUTHPAWS For three innings, the greatest gouthpaws in the game-HubbeU of , the world s champions, ana j-ei. Vernon Gomez, of the Yanks, locked in the pitching duel the baseball world has long been awaiting, and the honors rested entirely with the lanky screwball twister from Oklahoma. Facing the greatest hitting array ever assembled, the master fanned six men in the first two innings-five of them in a row and all they happened to be were Eabe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin, manager of the rival array. Bill Dickey, Yankee catcher, cracked him for a single to break up the succession with two out in the second, but he got his hurling rival. Gomez, which was like shooting birds on the ground after what he had just done. A trifle unsteady at the start-when he allowed Charey Gehringer of the Tigers, to open the game with a single to center that Wally Berger of the Braves, fumbled into two bases Hubbell settled down after passing Heinle Manush, of the Senators, and started on his mag- nificent parade. He gave another; walk to Babe Ruth in the third, with two out, but he got Gehrig then on an easv outfield fly. . game' slumps Hubbell marched out of the ball ' game, his three inning chore complete, with another clincher to his greatness to add to his breathtak-, ing: world scries pitching last fall. And with him went all semblance of law and older. The National leaguers, with the St. Louis Cardinal delegation touching off the fireworks, discomfited Gomez right at the start as Frankie Frisch, who used to roam these grounds in the days of John Mc-; Graw, planked a home run hi;zh in the upper tier of the right field , stands, first man to hit in the National league half of the firrt. Then after Frisch had singled and Pie Traynor, Pirate manaser, hit to center in the third. Ducky Medwick, Cards' left fielder, planked its companion in the right field stands, the second and last nomer of the day. This gave the National leaguers a i 4 to 0 Ipad as Gomez finished his ' three inning stunt, after allowing a j total of only three hits, fanning as j many, and being replaced by Red Ruffing, of the Yanks. Lon V.'ar-, neke, Cubs right hand ace, ie-: plated Hubbell. Pandemonium, not llstPd in either lineup, took possession of the sunlit, happy premises ' and the ball game turnea Into a far'asy. Before it was all over the National league had used up their en-; tire quota of players, 20, and employed one, Billy Herman, Cubs sec- 1 ond baseman, twice. The American leaguers used 15 players, only ; three of them pitchers, piled up! 14 hits to i-ii;ht for the National , Iraf-'iie. and oil hands had contrived i to turn in some of the weirdest 1 bust ball a ii:ajor league field ever saw.

Van Mungo ; came out of the bomb-proof shel- j ters and what happened to him was i almost a matter for the district attorney's office to investigate. Eefore Terr." lifted Mungo at the end of the fifth, the American leaguers had piled up six runs and were leading 8 to 4. Every one was arguir.g with Charlie Pfirman, the plate umpire, over his decision on bails and stiikes. So Foxx singled, counting one and Simmons singled, counting another. Dickey walked after Cronin popped up a foul, Averiil sent two more home with a double down the first base line, Gehringer walked, filling the bases aeain and Ruffing drove in the ps'r with a single to left. J That seemed to slow up the ball game beyond reprieve but the Na- j tional players suddenly set upon Ruffing viciously In their half of ! the f.fth, counting three runs to j Cblj Un wi'Hn nrp ri'n of on JLfi t'ia I This c-nerr.. however, pot Ruffinir ' out of their end brought Harder in, ending their chances for this day. While )!' were working on the h'.K Yankee redhead, though, they looked like American league hitters. Pepper Mai tin walked and! three straight singles in a row by Frisch, Traynor and Chuck Klein, ! who had replaced Medwick. scored two runs and brought Harder in at t a trot. Harder held the National leaguers hitlers un'il 'he r.inth while ' the American lcg jers picked up anohpr run off Dizzy Desn in the sixth on doubles by Simmons and Cronin. For a moment in the ninth there was excitement In the i trailing camp as Billy Herman, who hart replaced Frisch r.l second in the seventh after batting once for Hubbell, doubled over third base. Harder, who got credit for the victory while Van Mungo was charged with the loss, forced Traynor to pop up and got Klein for the final out on a grounder to Gehrip. The net gate receipts totaled $52,- i 982. of which some $-10,000 will go i to the ball players' benevolent fund, j Kn'iiJ"tJi1TiW" ; AL SIMMONS GOLFERS SHARE MEDAL HONORS Zell Eaton, Bob Conliff Score Low Cards in Qualifying Round Western Tourney (By United Press) TWIN HILLS COUNTRY CLUB, Oklahoma City. July 10 Zell Eaton, 1933 medalist, and Bob Conliff were tied for low-scoring honors tonight as the first 18 holes of qualifying play for the Western amateur golf tournament were completed. Each had 72, two over par. They are from Oklahoma City. Many favorites found the going rough, over the tricky, wooded course. Since a score or more cf the 166 entrants were hovering near the 80-mark it seemed like that a total of 160 for the 36 holes by tomorrow night would qualify for the championship flight. Match play will begin Thursday. The finals come Sunday. Jack Westland, Chicago was spared the two days of medal play because h is the champion. Rodney Bliss, Omaha, Neb., youth who was runner-up last year, and Leland Hamman, Waco, Texas, the new trans-Mississippi champion, appeared sure cf places near th top of the qualifying list after their rounds of 73 today. Chick Evans, Chicago, however, will have to score in the low 70's tomorrow If he is to succeed jn his attempt at a ninh championship. He took on 81 today. .. Yankee Scores Convincing Win Over Rainbow fBv United Press) NEWPORT, R. I., July 10. The Boston-owned sloop, Yankee, administered the most conclusive defeat Rainbow, Vanderbilt syndicate's hope for the America's cup defense, has received in the series so far over a 28-mile course today. Charles Francis Adams, former secretary of the navy and skipper of the Resolute which defended the cup against Shamrock V, piloted Yankee through a steady pace, building up a lead of nearly five and a half minutes at the finish. It was Yankee's second victory over Rainbow, its first since the Vanderbilt craft underwent keel repairs. Sidelights (By Axsociated Press) NEW' YORK, July 10 If all the hits the American leaguers made off Warneke in the fourth had been laid end to end, they would have reached clear over the Yankee stadium. Simmons' double traveled 414 feet, Cronin's single went 315 and Averill's triple landed 455 feet from home plate. Hubbell played no favorites in his string of six strikeouts in the first and second. After fanning Ruth and Gehrig, left-handed batters, he got Foxx, Simmons and Cronin, all right-handers, before winding up his whiffing act against Gomez, who tries to hit from the port side. Frankie Frisch's reputation as ! money player" lost no ground , when the Cardinal manager socked i Gomez's second Ditch hizh into the! right field stands for a home run. i MISSIONS WIN FROM SEALS 2-1; SOLONSBEATEN Southpaw Mitchell Triumphant In Mound Duel Against Zinn; Manager Aids Oakland (By Associated Press) SAN FRANCISCO, July 10. Clarence Mitchell, veteran southpaw spitballer, pitched the Missions to a 2 to 1 win over their local rivals, j the Seals, todav. i It was a mound duel between I Mitchell and Jimmy Zinn and i ragged fielding in the eighth inning proved disastrous for the Seals hurler. In that frame Garibaldi muffed Eckhardt's grounder while Zinn's slow fielding of Stroner's bouncer paved the way for the winning run. The Missions tallied in the see-on on hits by Eckhardt, Stroner and Fitzpatric. Joe Di Masrgio hit the ball over the left field fence for the Seals' lone run.

After Prison's homer, their next three runs came on "Ducky-Wucky" Medwick's clout into the left field stands. The sixth inning produced a triple play which, however, failed to get into the records. With one down, Averiil fanned and Cronin was caught off second, retiring the side. The ambitious National league infield, just for fun, completed the play and caught Cochrane off first for the "fourth" out of the inning. Lou Gehrig, who failed to get a hit, struck out three times and made one of the game's two errors, had a bad day from the start. I'e j drove up to the park late and was . so excited he locked his wife in the car. He had to send someout vith the keys to get her out. -: Baseball Score by Innings :- AMERICANS FIRST Gehringer hit sharply past Frisch and slid into second for a two-base hit. Manush walked.

Approximately 100 of New York city's most talented autograph grabbers had a field day today at the Polo grounds where the brightest stars of baseball were engaged in combat. Mister Henry Stover, of Ozone Park, N. Y., who wears black mustache and summertime spats, was In the forefront of the signature seekers when the day's festivities ended. Robert Meyer, 11-year-old son of a theatrical man, finished second by a rubric. A rubric is a distinguishing flourish made beneath a person's signature and Robert's rubric was provided by Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Mister Stover, however, got one baseball with 22 signatures on it, Including those of Babe Ruth, Walter Johnson, Bill Terry, Pepper Martin, Carl Hubbell, Lou Gehrig and Christy Mathewson Jr. He also obtained the only signature given out by Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia during the afternoon. It was our privilege to accompany Mister Stover on his rounds before the .baseball contest started, and to study his methods of obtaining autographs from renowned persons. The signalure-obtainers were swarming over the field when Mister Stover went into action. He got Walter Johnson to sign two base balls and one program. Carl Hub-hell grumbled about It for a while but finally signed one of the balls. Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig were cornered together. "Now," said Mister Stover, "I see that the mayor has arrived.

"How do you do," said the mayor, wondering who this person could be. "I think Tammany hall is run by crooks," said Mister Stover, "and I think it will always be run by crooks. I think you will be re-elected to office. Would you do me the favor of signing your name for me?" "Certainly," said Mayor LaGuardia. "Give me something to sign it on."

"Watch me after the game," said Mister Stover as we walked away. After the game he proved thnt he is not only an accomplished autograph-grabber. He is also a souvenir collector. He has a piece of fabric from the plane in which Coste and Bellonte flew the Atlantic. When the last out had been called, Mister Stover sped out from the grandstand. He went to the pitcher's box and scooped up a bit of dirt. Then he made the rounds of the bases, getting a little dirt from each sack. "All the stars of this game," he said after packing the dirt into a paper cup, "have trod in this dirt today. Baseball's immortals have had their feet in it. And I have 37 new signatures. Wow!"

Max Baer yelled for beer after he lifted the heavyweight boxing title from Primo Camera and so did the American league all star baseball players today after they had scored their second annual victory over a hand-picked team of National league seatelites. Using a two hand grip on his bottle of suds, Joe Cronin, the boy manager of the Washington Senators and pilot of the American league forces, took a big swallow and then launched Into a eulogy of his players. ( "The boys were real hustlers, every blooming one of them," Joe said. "They won the ball game and the manager had little to do with it. My ne regret is that I wasn't able to use every man on the squad." CLEVELAND ACE When Mel Harder, the Cleveland left hander who is serving his eighth year in the majors, arrived in the dressing room he was given a rousing ovation. "Nice work Mel," the other players chorused. Walter Johnson, once the "big train" of baseball and now manager c the Cleveland Indians, elbowed his way through the crowd around Harder and said: "You pitched like a real veteran today. I'm mighty proud of won." Cronin overheard the remark and spoke with a great deal of feeling as he gave Johnson, who coached for the Americans at first base, at least half the credit for the victory. "Walter, I owe you a great deal of thanks," Joe said. And then Cronin explained that when Johnson planned to pitch Harder against the White Sox a few days ago he pleaded with the "big train" to keep Mel fresh for the all-star game. Harder, who entered the game in the fifth inning and limited the Nationals to one hit, said he "just mixed them up, that's all." Second to the Americans' joy over their victory was their admiration for King Carl Hubbell, the Giants' southpaw nee who held them to two hits, a walk and struck out six in three Innings. HUBBEL PRAISED Here are just a few of the comments: Cronin: "He's the greatest pitch- er I ever faced. He can throw the ball through a knothole." Babe Ruth: "He's a great pitcher, you can't take that away from him. I couldn't even see the ball when he threw it." Ben Chapman: "It was worth the price of admission alone to see him strike out Ruth, Gehrig and Foxx." Lou Gehrig: "He's plenty good and tough." Next door, in the Nationals' dressing room there was almost tomblike silence in an atmosphere of gloom. Bill Terry, the Giants manager and boss of the National stars, summed it up with the remark: "It was Joe Cronin's day and he deserved it." The general feeling was that today's defeat was just a temporary setback for the Nationals and that they would make up for It In the world series. , .. ... Terry smiled only once when he poked fun at Hubbell. "It looks like you've been holding out on mc," he said. Rosenbloom Beaten Soundly by Ramage (Bv United Press) LOS ANGELES, July 10. Lee Ramage, San Diego, heavyweight, tonight erased a recent draw decision with Maxie Rosenbloom when he won a 10 round decision over the light-heavyweight champion In a non-title bout. Although the Jewish tit.list took six rounds to Ramage's four, Referee George Blake awarded Ramage the nod for his showing in the last three rounds which were his by a wide margin. Rosenbloom, slapped and peppered Ramage to take five consecutive rounds but the San Diego boxer came back strong in the eighth, ninth and tenth to catch the referee's eye. Aside from the last three rounds, Ramage was able to take only the second while Ro:innhlonm took every round through the seventh with the exception of the second. The champion obviously was disappointed at the decision. Ramage weighed 18G and Rosenbloom 181 ',:. Racing Form Shown In Trial by Cavalcade CHICAGO, July 10.
