TOMMY HOLMES lYANKS PLAY "DEAD TO A'S IN A. L. OPENER Clinical Notes On Opening Day Old' Reiser, New' Hermanski Stars Of Dodgers' Opening Day Triumph MANAGER Sl'KEY There was a baseball openln at Ebbets Field and the Dodgers won It which had the effect of temporarily moderating the furore over the Identity of the manager who ultimately must be appointed to carry on lor the suspended Leo Durocher. "How can you replace a winning manager?" jubilantly exalted Mr. Walter O'Malley, vice president, treasurer and mouthpiece of the Dodgers, as he called upon the singing Everetts McCooey and Clark to give with another duet In the press club up under the eaves of the old Flatbush orchard. The attitude was slightly different in the catacombs beneath the stands where the clubhouse Is located. Clyde Sukeforth seemed vaguely uneasy. "I wish," fervently wished the dapper MGR pro tern of the team, "that somebody would show up tomorrow morning. I'd sort of like to wind up my major league career as manager unbeaten ..." BURT SHOTTEN The latest rumors are that no 1947 manager will be named before the weekend and that the direction in which Branch Rickey says he started to look after Joe McCarthy turned him down aims at Just where Burt Shotten happens to be at the moment. This is the strangest of situations. There never was a major league managing assignment open that involved so many people who didn't want it. Mr. Shotten, for example, announced that he was all through with active big league stuff a couple of season ago when he resigned as Cleveland coach to accept a field job in the Rickey organization. He is now 62 years old which didn't prevent him from running that complicated rookie assembly line which Rickey established at Pensacola this Spring. In the early 20's when Rickey, himself, managed the Cardinals, Shotten took over on Sundays when Branch did not attend. Afterwards, he managed the Phillies for five years, which shouldn't be held against him. A smart baseball veteran, his appointment nevertheless would mean that Durocher will be skipper again when his suspension expires. ROBINSON AND SAIN This was a historic occasion. For the first time ever, an acknowledged Negro played in a major league championship game. Jackie Roosevelt Robinson played at first base until the top of the ninth when Sukey sent in Steeple Schultz to finish up. He didn't hit in his first three chances at the plate but in the seventh he played an important role. He bunted with a man on first, then had the presence of mind to be hit by the first baseman's throw. Runners wound up on second and third and Pete Reiser won the game with a double off the wall. In the clubhouse, while receiving congratulations upon his launching in the majors, Robbie was asked if Johnny Sain, the competent Boston righthander, was the best pitcher he ever faced, "Well, er-r-r," Robinson hesitated and then his white teeth showed in a flashing grin, "I've hit against Feller, you know." "But Sain has a real good curve," persisted the questioner. Robinson nodded. That Rrin flashed again. "If that isn't a good curve," he said, "I'm going to have a hard time this Summer." , SECOND THOUGHT On Doc Wendler's rubbing table, Tom Tatum, another Dodger debutant of the day was having a minor leg wound bandaged. Tatum broke into the box score as a runner for Dixie Walker in the sixth. He died on third. Clay Hopper, who manages Montreal where Tatum played last season, was saying: "I though you were going to steal home you had a whale of a lead off the bag." "I believe I could have made it," said Tatum, "when Sain took that big wind-up." "Why didn't you go?" pressed Hopper. "Well," grinned Tatum, "Maybe he would have caught me and I just happened to think how cold it is in Montreal at this time of the year." PETE AND THE INNKEEPER Rookies intrigue on opening day but old Dodger reliables brought our guys home ahead of the Braves yesterday. Reiser's seventh-inning smash against the fence (ultimately translated into three runs) was a heartwarming wallop. Joe Hatten started on the mound and didn't do badly, and Hal Gregg was the winning pitcher, avenging his defeat on opening day last season at the hands of Sain. But the pitching hero was Hugh Casey, the Innkeeper. I wonder what Durocher would have done. Gregg faltered in the ninth. The tying runs were on with one out. Both Casey and lefthanded Vic Lombard! were warmed up and the next two Boston hitters were lefthanded. But Sukey picked Casey instead of the southpaw and darned if Hughey didn't make Bama Rowell pop up, then throw a third strike past Earl Torgeson. NO SELL-OUT Maybe the 1947 Ebbets Field policy of reserving all grandstand seats on big days faces revision. Only 25,623 paid yesterday, well short of the expected sellout. There were vast patches of empty seats, particularly upstairs in left field. Here's what I think happened. Those less desirable grandstand seats aren't attractive to fans who buy tickets in advance. And other fans, who might have gambled at the last moment, were scared away by advance sale reports. Pistol's Double Knocks Out Sain,' Defeats Braves By HAROLD C. BIRR For years, under the goad ing of his late manager, Leo Durocher, President Branch iRirkpv has hpn rnnrliirtlnir a nationwide search for a man who could hit 'em up against the fence at Ebbets Field.

If the Yankees of April 15 are the men .who are going to battle the Red Sox and Tigers down the stretch for the I American League flag then things rally must be tougher than one can imagine in Boston and Detroit. It was the worst looking Yankee team ever to perform before a home gathering, such as it was, in many ;a year. One irrated cash customer j seated behind the press box j described the New York club as "the most apathetic one he has ever ;seen." The Yankees looked and acted like a team bored with the whole proceedings. Manager Bucky Harris blamed the S to 1 loss on the tight pitching of Marchildon and an inadequate defense. Perhaps it would be better to I say Joltin' Joe DiMaggio and Tommy Henrich had better hurry jup and get back into the lineup. jThe power that this Yankee team is going to need if it's going to stay up near the top is stored away in the bats of DiMaggio and Henrich. j It may be weeks before DiMaggio :gets back. "My heel feels fine," Joe 'said after the game. "It shouldn't be long before I'm able to play." Incidentally, the Jolter looks in great i shape. He says he never felt better. As for Henrich, there are two thoughts behind his absence. One lis, that his wrist is still bothering! jhim.

LOUIS GO London, April II (U.RV J a Baksi, elif Ible but apparently not very Interested In meeting heavyweight champion Joe Louis, held out today for a September title bout, but New York matchmaker Nit Rogers said his orders were to arrange it In June. Baksi, the Kulpmont, Pa., fighter, who eliminated. Bruce Woodcock of England from the heavyweight title picture with a seventh-round technical knockout last night, was to meet Rogers today to decide when the bout with . Louis will be held. Baksi, the ex-coal miner and bar room bouncer, definitely established himself as the best of the available heavies willing to go after Louis with his victory over Woodcock. Col. Eddie Eagan.New York Boxing Commissioner, gave his tacit support to a June bout, teUing Baksi that it was a "golden opportunity. i to the dish I Cliff Mapcs was released to Kansas; .V1 wouia oe Srt ;K Kto """f" " hlm lnl "-luwercutun, of Amato in the .h fitters. ir,.tn nft Knlon..
