At !fisl lost as long ns we have the sluggers." Connie Mock, who, at 69, still Is inaiiaelmr to stnigdle through the season with a pretty fair bull club, made that replv to the gestlon that the Cardinals' one- rim, base-stealing, eacrlllce flv victories, with ihe new not-sollvelv ball .and all, would do much to change the nature of baseball. Mr. Mack not only refuses recognize the efficacy of bunts an' bf.vthefts as the taste of the "modern" game, but he Is importing some more Qrade A sluggers to assault American League fences tiuriuit Ihe season to coma. That also, by tlie way, definitely destroys tht Idea that lie ha* any Intention of dlsmis'lnz his stars as helm; "too good" for tho rest of the league.
