ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1954 Established Jan. 13,1836. baker's dozen By LEE BAKER Rookies Give Sparkle To Early Games Baseball season is well launched now, of course, with major leaguers and high schoolers alike having several games in the books. And now it would appear that the softball campaign is also ready to move into motion once again. Earlier this week we had an announcement from Commissar Charlie Rayborn of the Alton Recreation Department that the Alton Teerfage and City Leagues would have an organizational meeting Monday. Now comes word from Leroy Emerick. ht-ad man of the Wrtod River Rec. Dept., that the Oil City is stirring in the same direc-1 tion. Managers for assorted Wood River leagues—namely, men's softball, women's softball, boys' teenage and little league — will gather at the Roundhouse Wednesday at 7:30 to organize for 1954. Little Leagues went over well in both Wood River and Roxana ]ast season with promise of being bigger and better than ever this year. It is indeed unfortunate that foot-dragging Alton has no apparent interest in developing such a program- The fair city upon the bluffs, however, is more content to provide a few diamonds for older age groups and let the little ones RO. Now last year the Maguire Signs team won the state Jaycee DEAN CALVIN baseball championship for the kids around 15 and 16. How it was accomplished we'll never know for the Jaycee program, Alton style is the nearest to an- archv we've ever seen on a field. Jaycee League Quite Wide Open We might dwell at length upon the utter lack of leadership provided for the Jaycee games but there's not time for such at the moment. Rather let it be said that it's a tribute to the kids in the league that anything at all is accomplished, let alone a state championship. The recreation program for Alton, let us say, is strictly catch-as-catch-can. The Riverside Park diamonds have been provided with new backstops this year and have been put in better shape now than ever before in rnent memory. That is on the credit side. On the debit side, we might mention that the YMCA Church League finds that only Friday evenings at Riverside can he provided for its games. The other evenings, Y Physical Director Bud Cronk has been told, arc for any kids who might want to come down for pick-up games. Some program, no? • The pride of Alton could be its softball teams. Baseball has suffered a recent horrible death when the fine Strcepcrs outfit broke up to be scattered among assorted other Southwestern Inter-City League teams. Alton was so disinterested in the Streepers and had such poor facilities that the team did its playing in East Alton, Carpenter, Hamel or whatever hamlet might be Interested. Frosh Coming Through By JOE RElCHLfiR Asnootaled PI-MS Sport* Writer The four-day old major league baseball season is still In the budding stage but it looks as if It will be a big mokie year. No club has played more than three games but already 47 first year men have seen action. A batch of others, including such highly touted freshmen like Ray Katt, Ed Bailey, Reno Bertoio, Joe Frazicr, Chuck Harmon, Arnie Portacarrero and Tom Brewer, are almost certain to get into the lineup soon. Rudy Regalado, Cleveland's spring sensation, has been used only as a pinch runner. It's hardly fair to make any comparison at this early stage of the campaign but the outstanding performances thus far have been turned in by Forrest '(Spook) Jacobs and Vic Power of the Philadelphia Athletics; Gene Baker of the Chicago Cubs; Frank Boiling and Bill Tuttle of Detroit; Bob Skinner, Curt Roberts of Pittsburgh; Bill Skowron of the New York Yankees; Hairy Agganis of the Boston Rod Sox and Wally Moon of the St. Louis Cardinals. The majority of the rookie pitchers who have had an opportunity to work so tar haven't been particularly effective. Jack Harshman, Chicago White Sox southpaw, is the only one to get a starting assignment and he failed to last through the fourth inning, Jacobs, the pint-sized second baseman who was "drafted from Brooklyn's farm system, has been impressive at bat and in the field. He's rapped six hits in nine times at bat and has handled 12 chances flawlessly. Power, the Negro outfielder wholed the American Assn. in batting with the Yankees' Kansas City farm club last year, has tnree hits in nine limes at bat. Second baseman Baker, who BATTING ORDER — Brooklyn expects this batting order to win a third consecutive pennant and beat the Yankees In the World Series, for a change. They are, left to right, Junior Oilllam, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Manager Walter Alston, Roy Cam pan oil a, Gil Hodges, Carl Furlllo, Billy Cox and the pitcher, in this case Carl Erskine. (NEA) Wood River Relays Open Tuesday at 6 WOOD RIVER — First big event on the local track and field scene comes Tuesday in the first annual Wood River Relays, starting at 6 p. m. in Memorial Stadium Willie Mays Is Human Enough, At Least Until Game Gets Started Hope Provided by City League So much for baseball. It will be dead this summer with the exception of the American Legion junior team which we assume will again receive the usual casual backing — meaning next to no backing whatsoever. On the softball front, however, which as we said before should be Alton's pride, the picture is quite cloudy. Last year the area had at least three outstanding teams, Watertower Dad's, Northside Doms and the Godfrey Young Men. Right now'at mid- April there still seems to be some question about any or all of these units being in action this summer. The Watertower Girls, certainly the best in the area, are a casualty of dissension in the ranks and will not be with us. The Dads apparently are an off- again, on-again proposition, depending mostly, it would seem, on what Fircballer Dean Calvin plans to do. "No Calvin, no Dads" would be a good guess on the situation. The Doms will probably play again, although heaven knows it's not an Alton team by a long shot. As for Godfrey, we hear nothing whatsoever. About the only bright spot is that the Alton City League teams are taking a great interest in the league this summer with several clubs planning to blossom out with full new regalia. We can only hope that the City League can live up to the promise of better things, Alton could use a break. Changed Johnny Klippsteiii To Face Cardinals Today CHICAGO S? — Johnny Klippstein, sporting a changed pitching style, makes his 1954 pitching debut lor the Chicago Cubs today against the St. Louis Cardinals. He will be opposed by Gerry Staley, who won 18 and lost 9 for the Cards last season. Klippstein, slender righthander, won 10 and lost 11 last season but has shown great promise this spring. In the last 19 exhibition innings he pitched he allowed only two runs. Johnny has undergone a general style overhauling. He has changed his grip on the ball, brings his right leg around more to improve his follow through and has added a slow curve. Meantime, the White Sox were at Cleveland lor resumption ot their competition with the Indians, who have handed the Sox two of their three straight losses in the American League. Manager Paul Richards plans to pilch either Bob Keegan (7-5 last season) or rookie Tom Flanigan. The Indian mound choice was Art Houtteman'(9-13). Both the Cubs and Sox, like the rest of the major league clubs, were idle Friday. along with shortstop Ernie Banks, form the Cubs' new double play combination, also has gotten off to a quick start. He's collected four hits in seven times at bat including a double and home run'and has driven in three runs. Banks is off to a slow start. Detroit's rookie trio of second baseman Boiling and outfielders Tuttle and Al Kaline have pleased Manager Fred Hutchinson so far. One of Boiling's three hits in three games has been a home run. He accepted 15 chances without an error, has taken part in three double play and has stolen a base. Tuttle also has three hits, a home run and a stolen base. Kaline's three hits are all singles. Skowron, who won the Yankea first base job against lefthandcd pitching with his spectacular slugging in spring exhibition games, has only two hits in 10 at bats hut one is a homer and the other a triple. Agganis, in his first start at first base for the Red Sox, walloped a triple arid single. Moon who replaced Enos Slaughter in the Cardinal outfield, has two hits in two games, a homer and double. Milwaukee's highly rated Henry Aaron, went hitless in five times at bat opening day but cracked two hits in his second game. By JIMMY BUKSLIN NEW YORK — (NEA) — Willie Mays, who must come very close to bcinj; all they say he is if the Giants are to do anything this year, started off the 1954 seal son at the Polo Grounds on a disconcerting note for those who take stock in his semi- superman billing. To begin with, Wllli" walked in- lo the Polo Grounds locker room on opening day and proceeded to hang his clothes in a very human manner The jacket to his light brown dou Willie Mays ble-breasted suit was bulging with envelopes and the pants were, slapped on a hook. The shelf of locker No. 24, which is Willie's, was in a state of disarray. Why, he'd make just an ordinary housewife mad at him. As Willie walked down the long flight of stairs which leads from the Giants' center field dressing •oom to the playing field, he mised, teeth gleaming in the iriglit sunlight, to autograph a couple of scoreboards for bleacher fans. 'Look at this," one of them said. "The guy signs the card and you can't hardly tell whether Its 'Mays' or what. I can't read his writln'. He writes just as lousy as I do." On the field, a park policeman stood in front of the clubhouse entrance and watched Willie snag some flies which were being fun- goed out by a coach standing in the infield, some 440 feet away. "He makes the whole difference this year," the gendarme noted. "The guy can do anything. I remember him here the year we won the pennant. He was * out of this world. And haven't you been seeing what the papers are saying about him? "Those guys," he said with a motion toward the distant sou ond-tier press box, "follow the club every day. They know everything. And they like Mays nearly as good as they liked Ruth. I think this guy will be another Ruth—almost." With this, Willie got set to RO after a fly. He took n quick step o his left, which wns the wrong tvay, then whirled and raced to lis right. His cap flew off, as if ho were a kid back trying out, for a high school team. He stabbed ils gloved hand across his body, nit the ball went past him and banged harshly against the bleacher wall. The noise startled the guard, who smiled. But Leo Duroohcr, something less than a bench superman last year, would do a lot more than smile if it happened In a game. In the press box, as the game began, an old-time baseball man, visiting for the day, began to talk. "You soelrvln down there," he said, pointing to Monte Irvln, the husky New "That is one strong wrists, bat, no wild York outfielder, fine hitler. Big, He controls the swinging. That's why he hits anything. He cuts down on the percentage of missing with wrist action. "But you take-Maya. He hasn't developed wrist action yet. He just swings with everything he's got. They look for him to hit .300 his year — or at least they're praying he will. Well, I cnn't soo him hitting much more than 270 or so. And he'll hit that until he develops the wrist busl- less. "That doesn't come overnight. "And this spirit business," the ;uy went on, "Listen. These nro professional ballplayers. That rah-rah sprit they sny Willie gives 'em is just a lot of non- sc-nse. These guys get paid for playing. They'll piny their heads off if it helps their paychecks. This spirit Is a lot of talk." When the conversation svns finished, and the rest of the day's doings Injected Into the thinking, you began to think that Wllllo M'ays, the funny-running No. 24 on the big playing field, was very far from being the supci<- man they say. That is, until he svon the ball game by hitting one ot the longest home runs In Polo Grounds history, an awesome shot Into the upper stands at the 425-foot murk. The entire Giant; bench was up on the steps doing a little war dance us Willie Mays ran around the bases. Basilio, Langlois Meeting/Tonight In TV Special SYRACUSE, N.Y. "ff— Carmen Basilio and Pierre Langlois, both in top fighting torm, meet tonight in a 10-round nationally televised (ABC) middleweight bout. The tricky Frenchman is a 6-5 favorite. Langlois is expected to scale 155. Basilio the No. 1 contender for Kid Gavilan's welterweight crown will weigh about 150. The 8 p.m. CST match — a return bout — shapes up like an old- fashioned grudge fight. More than 7.000 fans are expected to crowd the Syracuse War Memorial to watch the boys try to erase the ranking draw decision that marked their other meeting here last December.

Harnny settled down today to his now job fls general manager of the Philadelphia Plillllos with his employer hoping he'll inject some championship hustle into the National League club. • Humey's appointment came — in his own words — like "a bolt out of the blue." "I learned about the deal only Thursday and I cume to terms that night," said the 51-yeur-old baseball executive. Hamey had been assistant general manager of the New York Yankees since 1951 and prior to that was general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates and president of the American Association. Announcement of the Hamey selection was made Friday by Phil MOB owner Bob Carpenter. The Phils had been without a general manager since the death of Herb Pcnnock in 1948. Hamey'B salary was not disclosed but it was reported he will receive an amount equal or close to the $25,000 a year paid Pen nock. Carpenter, who has ' been han filing the general manager's chores during the last five years, made it plain Hamey will be the boss on all club personnel matters. Under Hamey the club executive setup will be the some as It was under Pcnnock, credited with a major role in building up the team ,o a National League pennant in 1950. "Since then," said Carpenter 'the Phillies have been aiming to repeat. The appointment of Roy Homey is part of that program."
