McKechnie sat on H bench just oulsld?. llio rliriihoiis: at WateiTronl Park and watched his—and Jurt?e Fuclis'—ball icam ffoln? through (lie? gestures of spring training. "I've BOI lo get some base hlis. 11 said Bill, when in was asked lo describe the difficulties HUU kept the Boston club In .seventh place last year. "We nrc knocking nt .. . thi door Itist .veor, for a while. Then all "of a sudden we ran into . consecutive double-headers with : Hie . Giants und the Cardinals. • They knocked us off rmd we wont IntT a tallspin." How about Shires? Would lie baschits out of Hie creal An? All tlml Lena Blackburnc could net - out of Art was punches on ;. r.ose. . Shires Is different now. Maybe liis marriage changed him. He's working hard. Look at him over (here now. not \\ word otu of him. ; : not. u bit like tin'old stilrcs. And do you know he hit 3B\ in the .' American Association 'last year? 1 The writer knew .thai Shires hit ' Eomcthingr like thai. Urn to go on —how about Gashpnse I3ill Akei-s? Would Akcvs hit? All thai Bucky Harris could get out nf (lie Oas• •• house at Detroit was n flock of . wrong answers. 'Akers isn't hard to handle, u seems to me he has learned n KI-.-at, deal by helmr sent down (o 'Kansas City. He lilt better than ;- .330 there, you know. I'm goliiK to give him n whirl nt second base. I think he will come through for • us." •':•• Ho\v about Pinky Harerave, the former D,'.tro(c catcher? All tliat " Duchy Harris could gel out of - Pinky . was an occasional throw to (he wrong base, though Pinky did '. comb Die old apple nmv and the:i "ETiirgrnvc looks qocxl this year. ' He hit.350 for Baltimore. He'll bolster up tb* catching staff all rielii. • Maybe I could use another good catcher but you tell me where I'm suposed to look for him." . • , • * • Isn't if true that ihe other ... ; infleldcrs. tnken by nnd large, wouldn't hit the pi-omul I! they fell-en masse out of .an air- jjjime? "Well, some of (hose boys didn't hit so well last year. Rabbit Mai- nnvllle Ml off n few points. Bus.'•-.• ter Chatham wns weak with the stick, too. But this FVitz Knothc •:- we brought from Seattle—and I'm : " planning to use him at third base ; ," .300'or better In the P.-iclflc ". Coast League test year. Urtmnski, ,the boy I'm going to Hive a 3001! trial at short, didn't hit like lie .--should, but he was'new last year. 'Watt'.until he finds his way around. And/you know about the "outfield." What th? writer knew nbonl the •outfield was that thnrc was a good hitter named Wally Berger play- Ing there. And Wes Sclnilmcrlcii. he also was no stranger at thj plate. How about the others? "Well, we bought Oicar Eck- hnrdt from the Coast League, nnd he hit above ,360 out thera. II he . ''can hit something like that for : us. he'll have h 'sleatiy job. Aflet ' Red Worthington got hurt, he ' didn't seem to be, himself—not like -.he was when he came up." • • • • The pitchers had surprised ev- ; .er>-body last year. Tliat fellow Ed Brandt, (specially. "I'm not as much \vorried about the pitchers as 1 should be. 1 suppose. As it turned out. Brandt was the only pitcher we hart who won more than he tost. Of course, the records do not tell the r.tory. •We lost a lot of tough luck ball gam;s. ' "But Frankhouse broke even for lis. Take Cantwcll, Zachery. Shcr- del -and Sctbold. Th;y are eood dependable pitchers. but we couldn't get them any. runs." The recruit pitchers_ are K.Nit Greenfield, formerly of'the Giants: Bill McAfee from Newark: Walter Ertts from St. Paul; Bob Broivji from Binghamton: Frank Coleman, drafted from Raleigh, and Lre ' Mangum, drafted from New. ark. These were'- all good mlnor -- league piUlvsrs but none was a standout. Probably the best of the lot was Walter Belts, drnftc-d Irom . St. Paul, .where he won 22 last Hnr and lost 13. Did McKechnb expect a srcal deal of any of the rookie pitchers? "Well, you can't tell. But fm not worrying, as I said, much about that. r m going to try to get some base hits out of the" new- men." .
