Birdie Tcbbctls' musclcmon us- tounded the National League when IJicy put together ;i 12-game winning streak on the road that \ras Hie league's longest in four ' years.

The former proxy says the game has gone "big business" and teams are fielding "gentlemen-businessmen" players. t 'You might say this era was ushered in by Joe DLMaggio and Bob Feller," he said. "They both came up within three years of each other and almost dominated the American league. "True, tliey drew millions lo the ball parks with their ability to hit and throw a baseball.' But it seems the players that followed them took their cue from them. Feller showed and any DiMaggio emotion. rarely Clashes with umpires were few and far between, thrown bats and gloves were a rarity. "1 believe the rules makers •re taking the color out ot baseball. This new" ruling of • batter being fined because he throws a bat Is like replacing . an umpire with an electric eye." Veeck pointed out thai club owners are not wholly to blame for the attendance decline. He said other forms of entertainment have taken their toll also.

He admitted that cures for the declining could not Veeck also said the decline has not become large enough, to be alarming yet, but the trend seems to be in that direction. "Club owners also have, to wake up and modernize their parks," he said. They have to make it easier for the fan to gel to the park and when he gets there, they have to entertain him. We did it in Cleveland with good baseball, a few clowns and some fireworks." Veeck is the man who. took a dying Indian (cam under his wing in 1916 and in 1948 brought Cleveland'. Its first pennant since 1920 and set an attendance record of 2.620,627 fans. Last year the second -pi nee Indians drew fans to home games.
