PROVE BIG HELP TD TIGERS Experts Believe General "What Doctor Ordered" For Pennant Bound Club BY 1IAKRY CJRAYSON NKA Service Sports Kdilor NEW YORK, Aug. IS.—The De-'; troll club's gamble of (10,000 or less on the 33-year-old Alvln Ciowder WHS u good one, in tlie opinion of the wise inen of baseball. ' ^ Hogcrs liornsby and Walter Johnson arc among those • who hnve an idea that the right-hander who enjoyed six successive remarkable seasons In St. Louis anil Washington may give the Tigers what, little shove they need to win the American League iieiuiant. Crowder's nge, unmistakable signs that his nrm is tired—nnd a 812.000 contract—combined to cause every club except the fron', runner to pass up the General when the Senators u-nherl for wavers on the pitcher who nvemgcd more than 20 victories for u half do/.en .campaigns. I Detroit, making money hand over 1st, could 'well afford to run the risk. If Crowder can help keep the Tigers out of a slump during the dash down the srtetch, it will nean a good $50.000 more to Frank J. Navln & Co. And that may be all the willing worker of Winslon-Salem has lo do to send Mickey Cochrune's men Into a world series, which might menn $100.000 additional to '.he owners, provided it lasted Ipngci tlinn four games.

At his current, sulary, it, probably will cost the Tigers morej :hnn $2000 to have the Washington castoff with them throughout the closing seven weeks. But if he has n fnir share nf what he has had. Crowder is "Just \vhi\l the doctor ordered" for a dub In Detroit's position. In that event, he can spell Howe, Fh|x> Marbcrry and Bridges, thus increasing their effectiveness. What pennnnt-bound array can't use another pitcher with poise when it starts pressing in that lust wild scramble? Crowder's fall from 2-! victories In 1933 to four this season can bi (raced to several things. Mrs. Crowder underwent n mn- Jor operation and was gravely ill In the spring. The Washington club .suffered nn unprecedented scries of iiijur- lies, and fell apart like the oiu-lioss shay. Crowder, who dislikes to -ose performed before small supercritical turnouts. • * + Perhaps bcinp kicked Blairs will restore some of the General's old wizardry. Certainly, if the 'ormer doughboy can't win for the hustling Detroit club, he can't win anywhere in the majors. Crowder pitched one if ills last snmcs for Washington and his Irst for Detroit against Homsby's St. Louis Browns. Tie was removed on each occasion, but showed Honisuy enough stuff to cause him to say: "I'd have taken Crowder in n minute hnd I been in Coclirauc-'s Place.
