LUST till SIILI Shotton Hopes They']} But Philly Pilot Recovering From Headache that . Quaint Outfield Caused. ..EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part W ihe eerie* »t ifories on the ma. }w k»r», clubs In sprint Iraln- BY WILLIAM BRAUCHKK NBA Service Sparts tdltor ,' WINTER HAVEN, Florida,—Burl Shotton, manager of the floundering .'Phil lies, is beginning to re- cover .from his headache, '.- "If you liad been manager of ti .(cam, 1 ' Burt lokl me here the ether day. "with, an outfield that worked like mine lost year, you would liave had a headache, loo." But, wasn't this'fellow Klein a pretty fair country ball jjlayer? . "Yes. but \\f was the only man in th e outfield last year who -looked like a big leaguer. The reeli'of tlie Outfield couldn't Jleld •'irid 'couldn't hit. We won more • "pffifcs than we lost at home, hi ixWr smaller park. But when mir *•<*»! fielders got Into the big pastures of the other National League clubs^ they dlda't know how to • »c!,''and -lone hits were costly. And when my men hit long drives In the larger parks, they \ver c iisunt- ly caught. . • "Buzz Arlett looked like he would help us when he was hlt- 'tlr.g. but he couldn't cover any .ground, and when he quit hltdng we had to take him out of there. "This year. I have hopes that George Davis will help us in the outfield a. lot. I saw him several years ago wT-.en hi> was a kid fanned to Reading by the Yankees. 'He could, go arid get 'em then, but was weak with Ihe bat. Bob Cannery, president of the St Paul team, tells me that he'll hit now. That .343 batting average he had at St. Paul last year seems . to prove- that he will. Besides you can bank on what Comiery tells you about a ball player." .Besides Klein and Davis, the other outfield candidates are RUJS Scarrilt, former Red Sox flash. . rescued • from Baltimore; PreU Brlckell, who was with the Phils last year; Hal I«, former Brooklyn, recruit, who hit Ml for-Atlanta last year, and Doug Taltt, another outfielder from Atlanta, who hit ..368 last year. Now, .how about that Infield? "We have a good infield, but It ••: didn't function as well as it should have ..last year. Bartell at short and Mallon at second are youngsters and are Improving. Mallon was i-eak -on double plays when we started, with him last year, but toward the end of the season he 0!me;«long .fine.

Piakey Is'about as good a third baseman-as -you'll find anywhere. He-will'show them some good, ball SUJ year." •' •The only rookie infielder in omp is Shortstop George Knothc. from. JJew .Orleans,. who at 32 is a vete'ran of-many minor leagues .The.only addition to the catch- tag staff is M Todd from Dallas, the young man who quietly walked out to the pitching mound one day l*jt summer 'and planted on,, of Ws best Sunday punches on thc chin of the great Dizzy Dean.
