Johnny McMahon’s charges have another game coming up Friday, also with an Adams League Club, going into Biglerville to tackle the Canners. This is the last game away from home for the Squires, who entertain Hanover and Gettysburg next week. The Yellow Breeches Creek, recently stocked with trout from Craighead, near Mt. Holly Springs, to Rose Garden, was opened to fishermen this afternoon. Tom’s and Orsen’s Runs in York County will be stocked with trout Thursday and will be opened for fishing immediately. The East branch of the Codorus and Rambo Run will be stocked that day also but will be closed to fishermen for five days, opening on Monday. PITCHING: Bob G rim Boh Grim, New York Yankees, gave up just two singles in seven innings of relief against Cleveland after the Indians had knocked out two pitchers in the first inning without making an out. ----Here’s Baseball Easy Delivery Aids Control—Hubbell Hubbell’s Record (This Is the sixth of seven articles in which former major baseball league stars tell how to play the game.) By CARL HUBBELL (Written for AP Newsfeatures) Pitching is the most important factor in any baseball game. A good pitcher must have a number of qualities. However, in a boy just out of high school, we look for a kid who can throw reasonably hard and who has a free and easy motion. When a boy has this he has something to work on. Don’t worry about throwing too many different pitches. With so many games on television and radio today kids are more interested in baseball than ever. However, often they hear that one pitcher is throwing a fast ball, a curve, a slider, a sinker, a knuckleball, and a change of pace. Some kids, naturally, think they need six pitches to become successful. They try to master six pitches and as a result they master none. If you have any three good pitches that you can get over the plate you have the makings of a major leaguer. The three preferable pitches are the fast ball, curve and change of pace. I think Carl Erskine of Brooklyn has the best change-up in either league. Robin Roberts of the Phillies has a good fast ball and Sal Maglie is a good example of a curve ball pitcher at his best. He has two or three different kinds of curve ball. My tip is to watch these fellows when you get the chance. Try to use the same motion on every pitch. You've got to do this to get very far. Here are the 10 things a fellow needs to become a good pitcher: 1. A limber arm. 2. Stamina because sometimes nine innings seem like a long haul. 3. Two or three good pitches which should be practiced until you know how each will react. 4. Control. 5. Competitive courage. 6. Endurance. 7. Intelligence. 8.
