The 3b Sports Roundup Ht'OH FUIXGKTON' JE. Bill Meyer By CAVI.E~TAI.BOT ~^~ (For HUGH FUI.I.KKTON. JH 1 NEW YORK. Aug. 7. W',—Adi manager Billy Meyer of (he Pills burgh Pirates lo the Browing crop of experts who look for the vigorous young Chillies to win hi the National League. It Is obvious lo one and all Hull Billy's own club, mired in last place. Isn't going anywhere this, so he is in position lo speak "It's going lo be a scramble," he mu.sed as he tenderly massaged a gouty fool in his hotel room, "but the olhers are going to find those kid.s mighty tough lowartis the end. They've Kot f spirit and rebound that, wins pennants. "Last time Ihcy were out our •ay they were in trouble. They had Just run into a mess of doubleheaders and Ihey were ready to be taken. Maybe if we hiid been a real good club we would have swept tile four. But Ihey just kept plus- King and sneaked out of town with an even break, "They've got those great young pitchers and they've got thai. Ions ball that'll kill you. You don't know iv'iirh one's going lo knock It oul of the park on you next. 13*1 EU- iiis is Ihcir best man right now and he's getting belter. Nn Trick Sliiff "Before Ihis year Del used lo hit al a lot of bad balls, but he's quil it. Last lime we played Ihem he made our pitchers come in Ihere with the good ones and he murdered us. amis ami that rellf pitcher of theirs, Jim Koiulanly, are going to make an awful lot of difference " What Impresses Billy most about, the whi/. kids' young pitchers—Robin Roberts. Bob Miller and Ken Church—Is that they are smart enough at a tender age to depend upon their fast balls and what baseball men call the "big curve" to win. They haven't yet been polluted with a lot of trick stuff. "A fast ball, curve and change-up are all a good pitcher needs," Meyer emphasized. "They are the foundation of good pitching. But now both leagues are loaded up with fellows who try to throw five or six different pitches, Including the slider, of course. "That slider is the worst of all It's what I call the alibi pitch. Anytime a pitcher gets Uigged good he says it was a slider that the batter just happened to get hold of. But Ihey all like to throw it, even if it. is Just a dinky curve that doesn't break more than an inch or two. I notice that Larry Jansen of the Giants has dropped the thing, and he's a better pitcher for it." Too Few- Youngster* The reason for all the trick pitching—the experimenting — i s that there are an uncommon number of elderly chunkers around today. Billy believes. Fellows approaching their mid-lhirUes are trying to get by with an assortment or stuff. He thinks that the big leagues still are feeling a shortage of young pitchers because of the last war. That is, Billy qualifies, all teams are feeling the pinch except the Phils. Outside that club, the only young pitcher who appears to have made a big Impression on him this season is Erv Palica of the Dodgers. He calls palica a "really fine pitcher with a world of stuff." The Pirates' failure to do better than they have is a bitter disappointment lo their manager. He finds it difficult to explain—promising players who "tightened up." game after game lost which should have been won. "It's loo bad." he said wearily, "because our fans have been wonderful to us. They're the best." SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION L Fct. Atlanta . ... Birmingham . Nnslivill* . .. Memphl* . ..
