Puddin' Head Hitting Again I n 01 d Forni PHILADELPHIA & - Willie (Puddin Head) Jones apparently knew what he was talking about in Florida this spring. Jones listened to all the talk shout the Phillies' dire need of a third baseman. He read all the Maries about his being fat, lazy and disinterested. The slow talking South Carolinian spat a liltle tobacco juice and said: "There ain't nobody going to play third base for the Phillies but Puddin' Head Jones." When the club purchased Bobby Morgan from Brooklyn, the chant went up — now the Phillies have a third baseman. •But when the season opened Tuesday in Pittsburgh, Jones was stationed on third base. Jones batted 1,000 in the opener, one single for one official at bat as the Phillies lost 4-2. Wednesday, he pounded out tour hits in five time« at bat-*three singles and a hom» run, His batting average after two games, .833. He looked like the hard hitting Jones who helped the Chillies win a pennant in 1950. not like th* flabby .?& hitter ol 1953. LaMotta Shows Little in Defeat By Billy Kilgore MIAMI BEACH, Fla. ^-Former champion Jake LaMotta gave the middleweight division no cause for alarm about his comeback as he dropped a split decision Wednesday night to unrated Billy Kilgore. Kilgore, a ham-and-egger fighl- iK for the biggest purse of his carper, seemed a bit awed by La- Motla's reputation in the early rounds, but quickly gained confidence when he found he could take the "Bronx Bull's" best blows without blinking. Then the Miamian came on with a slabbing Jpjt jab and enough Kood rights lo Jake's head and body to win the nod from referee Petey Sarron and judge Gus Jacobson. Sairon voted for Kilgore 97-95. Jacobson .gave him a 95-94 edge. Judge Carl Gardnep thought La- Motta won 98-93. Jake weighed 167',{, Kilgore Rookies Ed, Monahan of the i Philadelphia Athletics and Boh , HabenJcht of the Baltimore Orioles j studied for Jaw degrees during the I off-season.
