The seasoned hands are, only-getting in' shape. They'll open fire ,when the real shooting begins. Harry Heilmanri, who led the American League four times in eight campaigns, j practically was an •'••AH- America .out* in his many training trips wjth the Tigers; But comfe' April 17, or whenever it was, the; pitchers couldn't get him out with; V; boomerang. . - - %,,. . Heilmann didn't — no' stickout slugger : does — worry about being short-changed in -the hit .department while warming up -for the main event. Take what they might suspect was a base knock, away from one of them in a championship game, however, and you'll hear the rquawk all the way around the league. That one counts, goes into the Records, contributed something toward where the club finishes, it's the'ljall .player's groceries. The're are, of course', spring hitters who have to be largely confined to the dugout once the pitch- ers'take command.. Pitchers and batters will tell you. they "frequently ;:loa'e their stuff and sharpness for a week or 10 days after, leaving the sunny south. They canjt. explain, .but it takes them that.--' length of time to settle down,;to the business at band. It is during this brief stretch that a youngster is likely to press. iiave -you tried laying one down?" asked his Columbia coach, Andy .Coakley. The sturdy young man destined to become the Iron Horse that afternoon .beat out two bunts to the third baseman, and promptly resumed his bombardment of the- stands. , Everybody knows .secret of hitting. timing is the Irish" Mallane Wins in First Sound By Knockout Of Nelson Union City's '-'Irish Pat" Mallane, 133, was a -first round knockout winner Saturday night in the Waterbury Sport Center. He defeated "Red Top" Nelson from Hartford in a scheduled four-round bout. Mallane is said to be the best local ring discovury In recent years. Beach Jones, 168, of Naugatu'jk, met Joe Plouffe, 169, Waterbury,- to battle to a four-round draw that included some extra-curricular action. Jones was staggered in the first round by a blow from Plouffe but the Beachcomber came baok in the second to drop the Waterbury fighter for the count of eight with a terrific right to the chin. At the end of the third they wrestled right through the bell and in the „„ ^ ,,,000 rourtn .

Y., defeated Tommy Ciarlo, Waterbury, in a mid-season on that the superior performer seeks to avoid, hastens to cue, for that's when it hurts most. Such a little thing can throw a hatter off that it is hard to detect. Naturally, the batter doesn't realize he >d doing it. He doesn't get next to himself until they start getting him out. Usually an observer can see the fault. It's like a professional golfer going to another pro. A batter can "be /striding too long or too short, swinging or stopping the bat a little too soon or too late. He can be standing too far -from or close to the plate. Stateness could be the caues, which is why rest is prescribed. •When not-lacing the. ball as he did -to- win 12 American League batting championships, Ty Cpbb had kids throw to^ him long before, batting practice."
