At Frederick, Md., yesterday Manager Connie Mack put his Philadelphia Athletics through a stiff batting 'drill. 'Outfielder Roberto Estalella and infleldcr Hnl Peck are the latest arrivals. Catchers Bill Drcschcr. and Mike Garbark are the chief woe of Yankee Manager Joe McCarthy. Both pla>ers arc 4-F and as far as McCarthy knows— not holdouts.

There's no telling who's ;olng to be rcclassined nnd grab>ed. Tlie pitching looks pretty fair, the catching Just the opposite. The in- ieid doesn't look so hot, tlic outfleld, ". improved. Lou Boudreau spent the oil-season in the personnel dcpiirtmcnt >f a plant in., his native Harvey, II. Boudreau wears a 4-F tag, but 'our guess ls"-ns good as Roger 'ccklnpaugh's as to what they'll ay to the shortstop now that he lits left war work, and he couldn't lay In it; arid manage the Indians. The young Illinois Old Blue has bad ankles, but no mike to lean m like Frank Sinatra. In the pitching department. Jim Bagby, Allle Reynolds, Steve Gronek. Al Smith, Ed Ktieman and Unbrose Pnllca arc 4-P and, of ourse, Grandpa Joe Heving Is jvcnige.

He won 19 for Baltimore, was whlfl king of the International, averaging practically R strikeout per round for well over 200 of them. Mel Harder lias quit baseball for the duration to stick at his Job as an expediter for a rubber company. Jack Salveson and Ray Poat arc 2-B, In case you nro Interested, although the Jailer's ERA was 5.11. Pnul Calvert Is a Cuniulian citizen who can't see his hand In front of him without thick glasses. George Hooks, who spent some time with the Orioles last trip, and a young recruit from Wilkes-Barre nninccl John Uonness nrc medical dischargees. Earl Henry, who copped 1C for Wllkcs-Burrc, is 4-P. Catching Is one of two principal headaches, with Buddy Rosalr 2-B Indicating thai he will remain in n Buffalo win- plant. Jim Stelner, who batted .312 for Sacramento, is also 2-IS. George Suscc, Jim Devlin, Jim McDonnell and Henry liusxkowskl are 4-P, but the latter trio arc pea- greens.

Ken KcHner Is 2-A, bespectacled Iluss Peters 1-A. Ed Wheeler, drafted from San Diego, has been accepted by the .Army. Tlic status of Bias Monaco, obtained from Baltimore, was changed from 4-P to 2-AK It wouldn't be at all surprising If n couple of semi-professionals, Joe Deslderato of Chicago and Steve Blras of East St. Louis, wind up rounding out the inner works. Jeff Heath, back on Iwo good knees, helps the outfield, where Paul O'Dea, Pat Secrcy and Stan Benjamin, up from Baltimore, also me 4-1'.
