Jam 19, 194? PAGE It Slugging, Versatile Young Thomson Slves Giants Fresh Slant On Life By NEfr MILLS NBA 9iftff Corespondent ::NEW YOBk—It's easy to remem- l*f when the Giants, resting in an Uncomfortable fifth place, started .•to* Winning strekk in St. Louis that fcftrept them to first place while on .tlte road, ;-l*hfet Was when Bobby Thomson was i moved from second base to .center field. Catcher Walker Cooper Sfcys he never saw a recruit who Wfts a better judge of a fly ball. 'Thomson swats a long ball to all flf-lds. He is the nervous type at .bat—up on his toes. His heels are ii0t planted In the dirt until he sWlhgs. Me throws and runs like blazes. .< . /Although Thomson, manufactured 2$ home runs for Jersey City last season, he 1 would Have . been re- i turned to the Little Giants for an- 61'her year of seasoning had not whltey Lockman broke his ankle Irt' a 'spring exhibition game. (Now there. is littlR doubt that Tliomsoft Is lip to stay. The New York club's front office didn't- know it had Thomson tttttil'Charley"Graham, the old catcher 'Who is one of the owners of, the San Francisco club, attempted t() make a deal for him. Thomson Worked out with the Seals and played., semi-professionally in the Boy Area'while serving in the Army Air Forces, with which he put in a two- year hitch.-When Graham saw that ,tyh could not land the boy, he told Giant officials they had quite a .ballplayer. The six-foot two-inch Thomson is:-'a native of Glasgow, but was roared on Staten Island after being brought to this country by his parents When he was two. The Polo Grounders signed him while he was starring for Staten Island's Curtis High. He is also a superlative,soccer player. That was born in him. •Following graduation, and when only 18, Thomson was shipped to Bristol of the Appalachian League, ,tlien to Rocky Mount of the Bi- Statc. He batted .347 for service teams. 'Batting third, Thomson leads off for the Giants' Fearsome Foursome, Itliose following him being Mize, Marshall, and Walker Cooper. Mel Ott still seems to have Thomson in mind for second base, but. the Scotsman is a running-kid who ii^longs in the outfield. With Whi- toy- I/ockman's return in July, he should be shifted to left field. At 23 and single, the handsome Thomson is the darling of the club. .On the breezy side and lighthearted in the clubhouse but spirited i and; very serious on the field, it/was Bobby Thomson more than any; other single factor that put the of life/back into the Giants. Bobby Thomson put the breath of life back into the Giants. (•on Mot .... (rondrlch .... (Jiilf Oil ____ Houston oil .. Int lliirvostur &FKT .SO H; 17 i* u Hi . N 7 Van Am Airw 22 Panhandle I'll :i2 .
