PETERSBURG. Fla.—v., Yogi Berra, the most valuable player in the American League last year came up with a prediction today— hU New York Yankees are going to year win the pennant again this even without Joe DiMaggio. "We needed Joe last season," said the Yanks' catcher. "He was an inspiration and still a great player But I, believe we're going to make it without him now. Why? Because we're going to have a pitching start that isn't going to get tired. I figure we'll have seven starters.' Yogi listed Vic Raschl. Allle Reynolds. Ed Lopat, Tom Morgan, Jim McDonald, Johnny Sain and Bob Kuzava, with the notation that the last two probably would be mostly In relief. usec ' SARASOTA, Fla.—OT—Hampered by a soggy diamond so far this week, manager Lou Boudreau today hoped to put his 24 Boston Red So* pitchers to work. He fears several of them have become slightly rusty, Boudreau planned to have all of them throwing in batting practice during the remainder of the week. He"; will delay .the intra-squad practice games until Monday, when he expects all hands, including Ted Williams, will be available. Williams notified general manager Joe Cronln that he would arrive here within a few days.

Va.—The 1952 Eastern racing season opens lit 1:30 p. m. Saturday at this picturesque track. Albert J. Boyle, a former Baltimore contractor, who has worked wonders at Charles Town since as- numing the president-general manager's role in 1935. two years after the track first opened, has boosted his dally minimum purse distribution to $8,400. This means horsemen, the majority of whom are residents of Maryland, will get a chance to split up $159,600 before Laurel ushers in the campaign.

" Bob Pence, although dropping in his game-point average, is still leading the Cumberland Spas in scoring with 130 tallies in eight contests. The sharp-shooting forward suffered an off-night Sunday when the locals were out- defensed by the New York Broadway Colored Clowns, 44-36, accounting for only nine markers, and saw his per-game mark slip a full point to 16.3.

Playing-Manager Roger Day is still the dead eye of the Spas in the free throw column with 37 of his tosses finding the range out of 47 attempts. In eight contests, the locals have averaged 65.4 which also represents drop from their "high-water" mark of .70.8 two weeks ago.

National Basketball Association last year, and Hank Parker, flashy Negro forward, are the standouts for the'Army aggregation.

The lineups: Boxing Critics Believe 'Sugar 9 Over His Peak NEW YORK Ray Robinson, - (INS)- — Sugar the middleweigh and signing champion of the world has himself another pen and Ink session scheduled for tomorrow—a the mayor's house no less. Sugar Ray was invited to Mayor Vincent Impellitteri's Gracie Mansion home to affix his signature to a contract for a Heart Fund non- title fight at Madison Square Garden May 16. Mrs. Impellitteri, an executive of the fund, got the champion to agree to the idea. To Fight March 7 Robinson will meet the winner o: the March 7 Ernie Durando-Paddy Young scrap in the ten-round benefit performance. Then, the" busiest non-combat champion. will leave for San Francisco to go through at last with his scheduled title fight .with Bobo Olson on March 3.3. An aching back and his mother's illness have kepi Robinson from meeting this obligation on two or three occasions. The Middleweight king hasn't fought since last September 12 when he took back the crown by stopping Randy Turpin in the tenth round. Observers agreed a then that ;he best pound-for-pound gladiator in the ring looked a wee bit over the hill. It was a hurt and furious Robinson who lashed out in rage and embarrassment to stop the Britisher. Otherwise, Robbie was not Robbie, on that occasion. With no further bouts to use as a barometer, the charrip is now a center of controversy. Not A 'True Test' Olson isn't .regarded as a "true ;est," and it is doubtful if Rocky Graziano, slated for an April 16 crack at Ray, can fit into this cate- ;ory either. Jack Solomons, moter, has been the British pro- chasing up and down Broadway in an effort to land third Robinson-Turpin bout for London in June. He's been as successful as a guy beating a drum in a sublic library. Then there-always is Al Weill of the International Boxing Club. This lent reportedly has his heart set on i light-heavyweight June title bout between Champion Joey Maxim, and of course, Robinson. Local Angler Enters Sailfish In Tourney KEY WEST, Fla.—Edgar Collier of Cumberland, Md., (15 Valley Street) landed a 50-pound sailfish measuring seven feet, four inches, which he is entering in the Island City Fishing Tournament. The tourney is sponsored by the Key West Junior Chamber of Commerce.
