Two THE TIMES-ARGUS BARRE-MONTPELIER VT FRIDAY OCTOBER 9 1959 Dodgers World Champs By Walt Alston Is Happy Man X V By JOE REICHLER hard-bitten critics that he is high- less expected to win We wo Downing White Sox 9-3 Richest Pot Now Being Split Among Players Of Two Clubs By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (API— The Los Angeles Dodgers are the world champions of baseball today They beat the Chicago White Sox 9-3 Thursday in the sixth game of the World Series — and they did it in Chicago's Comiskey Park The Dodgers’ victory behind right-h a n d e r Larry Sherry smashed the hopes of the White Sox which had soared when the Chicago team scored a 1-0 comeback triumph Tuesday in the Los Angeles Coliseum returning the Series to their home ground The Dodgers got rid of the best in the way of pitching the Sox had to offer chasing burly Early Wynn early and sending Dick Donovan off in close pursuit It was only the second world championship in 10 tries for the Dodgers their first since shifting to Los Angeles from Brooklyn two years ago Both championship teams have been managed by Walt Alston who has led the Dodgers to three pennants in his six years This could be the richest of all series when the record $892 36504 player pool is split up A full winner’s share should be worth at least $10000 a man to the Dodgers possibly $11000 The Sox should get from $7000 to $7300 each which would be a record for a losing share This Dodger victory making them the first ever to rocket from seventh place one year to the world championship the next is the National League’s fourth in six years over the American The AL still leads in the over all standings however 35-21 The Dodgers whose two defeats were shutouts started rumbling against Wynn in the third in the finale when Duke Snider sent a 400-foot home run into the lower ieft-center-field seats with a man on Wynn the first game winner at 11-0 got as far as the fourth inning in his third start of the series The big right-hander showed quick signs of wildness He gave way when Dodger southpaw Johnny Podres walloped an RBI double to center That brought in right - hander Donovan whose brilliant relief performance in Los Angeles had saved the fifth game for the Sox This time he gave up a walk to Junior Gilliam a two-run double by Charlie Neal and a two-run homer by Wally Moon That made it a six-run inning the Dodgers’ largest ever in a series and led to a string of six Sox pitchers No 5 was Billy Pierce the experienced little southpaw There is no doubting the big man of the series At 24 Sherry proved a cool careful right-handed reliever He was in on each of the Dodgers’ four victories In all he worked 12 2-3 innings in the four games giving up eight hits and just one run while walking but two and striking out five in the series — first ever without a complete game pitcher on either club The Sox a tight defensive club that made the most of its opportunities to win its first pennant in 40 years were unsettled by the Coliseum where the white-shirted three-game crowd of 277550 provided a poor background for fielders and hitters alike But Manager A1 Lopez figured the best way to say what beat his Sox was “Sherry and Neal They were the difference” Neal the thin thumper who plays second base led both clubs with 10 hits and batted 370 He won the second game with two home runs By JOE REICHLER CHICAGO (AP) — You could never tell it by the calm manner in which he was accepting congratulations and by the serious almost solemn look on his round face that the happiest man in the Dodgers' dressing room was Walter Alston The Dodgers’ World Series success capping their pennant victory was in many ways a personal triumph for this kindly good-natured shy Ohioan who after six seasons of big league managing finally has convinced his hard-bitten critics that he is high ly capable leader “From a personal standpoint this would have to be my greatest triumph at least the most satisfying” he said slowly choosing every word "Winning the World Series with the Dodgers back in 1955 gave me a big thrill At the time it was the greatest After all it was only my second year of managing and it was the first world championship ever won by Brooklyn "But the Dodgers of ’55 were a great team They were more or less expected to win We won 20 of our first 22 games and won the pennant by some 134 games I don’t want to take anything away from either of the teams but I think this team has given me a greater kick "After all it wasn’t expected to win It started off slowly and gradually got better This was a team job pure and simple” As a manager he hit a grand slammer becoming the only one ever to capture the world championship on both coasts — Brooklyn and Los Angeles

and the Sox weren’t sad That was the summation of the two dressing rooms Thursday after the Los Angeles Dodgers had defeated the Chicago White Sox 9-3 to take the 1959 World Series four games to two Dodger utility man Don Zimmer shouted "so the Coliseum got ’em” in reference to White Sox remarks of having to play in a makeshift park in Los Angeles But the White Sox weren't taking him up on it For them the long tense season was over and I they were looking for a rest I White Sox and major league officials pushed their way into the Dodger dressing room to offer congratulations to Manager Wait Alston And Alston was smiling from ear to ear "This victory seems bigger to me right now than the 1955 championship over New York in seven games” said Alston “This was a better team effort It was the hardest working team I’ve ever had I can't single out any player as our key man But I’ll say I’ve never seen a kid so young or so good as Larry Sherry” Sherry the 24-year-old relief ace was swarmed under by well-wisher and newsmen "I had good luck they were swinging at my pitches 1 just wanted to get the batters out” were Sherry’s routine answers to routine questions Coach Chuck Dressen who was ejected from the game in the fourth inning after a hassle with Umpire Ed Hurley said: "We beat those White Sox at their own game We outran them and Lord knows we sure outhit them We were very satisfactory We just played better” After shaking off the effects of having lost the White Sox settled down and went about their business of getting home for the winter Manager Al Lopez called the loss "one of those things We lost the ones we should have won This one we were never in We had our chances in the series but just didn’t make it” Team members went around shaking hands with each other and wishing each other "a good winter” Statistics Of World Series By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS W L Pet Los Angeles (NL) 4 2 667 Chicago (AL) 2 4 333 First Game at Chicago Oct 1 Los Angeles 000 000 000- 0 8

its second football appearance on home soil in a 1 p m engagement with Rice Memorial High of Burlington tomorrow at Recreation Field Following this contest the Solons’ third and last home game of the season will be played Saturday Oct 24 when Montpelier is host to St Johnsbury Academy Rice comes into this contest with two victories against one defeat while the Solons have gained one winner and lost twice in the campaign thus far Rice toppled Rutland 18-12 and followed up with a 6-0 victory over MSJ of Rutland to stamp itself as a coming power but last Saturday was upset by a surprising Spaulding team 26-6 Montpelier after losing a 13-12 opener to Towle High of Newport N H defeated Burlington High 19-13 but as expected bowed to unbeaten BFA of St Albans last week 39-0 On the record the Little hdians of Burlington would be favored anyhow but they'll go into this contest with something to spare in the favorite's role Aside from packing more weight than Montpelier could possibily match especially In the line Rice will face a team tomorrow that could be forced to call it a season if the injury jinx doesn’t slack off the Solons After the BFA game the Solons who already had lost the services of a backfield veteran and two of four ends now find themselves without Mike Yates starting fullback who tore muscles in his hip and won't play tomorrow It suffered another back field loss in halfback Benny Brown out with a concussion sustained a few nights ago during a practice session Brown was the top ground gainer for the Solons in the BFA contest Another back Dave Doyle has been out most of the week with an ankle injury Cal Haskell who caught a touchdown pass against Towle returned yesterday after a bout with a virus infection and will see little If any action Johnny Otis a promising end has yet to play his first game since a shoulder injury put him out of action He Will suit up tomorrow but he like Haskell will be used lightly if at all Pete Colby a freshman end is also out with only Johnny Hughes around and able Terry Murray has been moved from a tackle spot to fill the gap at an end position From tackle to tackle the Solons are in pretty good shape with all hands ready to go Bob Edson is ready to go at center Bill Roya Pat Cotey and Peter Joslin at guards Allen Granger and Hughie Jones at the tackles along with George Davis Brookie Heaton and Peter Lav-in will share the quarterbacking duties Bubba Fernandez and Les Pressey at halfbacks and Miles Prentice moves out ot the line to replace the injured Mike Yates Walt Pressey and Dave Doyle if his ankle is ready will also see some action Veeck Says Sox Not To Stand Still When Trading Begins Second Game at Chicago Oct 2 Los Angeles 000 010 300—4 9 1 Chicago 200 000 010-3 8 Podres Sherry (7) and

What about me? “Who am I? I’m Veeck and nobody wanted to see a seventh game more than me SHS In Good Shape To Play Seahorses By ROGER LECOURS The Crimson Tide footballers of Spaulding High will be at Burlington’s South Park Saturday afternoon to take on the Burlington High Seahorses Kick-off time is scheduled for 2 pm in this contest which will be Spaulding’s fourth of the season The encounter should be a good test to determine whether last Saturday’s 26-7 win over Rice Memorial High of Burlington was just one of those “red hot" days or if the Tide’s inexperience has blossomed into sturdy strength The first two games of the season were lost to St Johnsbury Academy (7-0) and Rutland High (26-0) In both initial games the Tide was working against the uncertainty brought on by an inexperienced line and the still unlimbered muscles which the short pre-season period of drilling didn’t quite loosen up More over coach Steve Slayton had to experiment with his “green” players to determine where they were better suited and which combinations would work more smoothly During the week prior to the Rice game the coaches and the team merely continued to “plug away” at over-all improvement Upon the merits of the very decisive 26-7 drubbing which the Tide administered to Rice last Saturday it can definitely be said that the squad is on the way “up” The line came into its own against the Indians with each individual doing his share of the lot further than I thought we could this season “We simply hit disaster in the series We were beat They just belted us out for the count in the last game “I think we can beat any team in baseball if we can keep the ball in the park But they were hitting it over our outfielders' heads” Veeck said he anticipated a live- j ly trading season because of the new rule that eliminates waivers' RFA I A Cr'rt blocking and tackling in an un- DrA-DT J A oMG usuaj fervor The Crimson cap- Clash Under Lights italized on each mistake that Rice made by transforming the mis-ST ALBANS — BFA of St Al- cues into valuable yardage which bans will play its last home game brought them closer to the goal of the football season under the 'n®' The backfield operated without lights tonight when St Johnsbury hitches and followed its interfer-Academy invades Coote Field ence very well to garner those Thus far Ollie Dunlap and his extra yards on each play Most teammates have over - run four j striking of the over-all perform-opponents and is naturally fa- j ance was the passing and aerial vored tonight j snatching Two touchdowns were The St Johnsbury team coached ! scored on passes with a third tally by Jim Burlingame is big and j being set up by a pass play Half-has experience The Acads have won their first two games of the season by edging Spaulding 7-0 and belting Windsor 37-7 'No don't be sorry Now we j for a three-week period in Novem- Fourth Game at Los Angeles Oct 5 Chicago 000 000 400-4 10 3 Los Angeles 004 000 Olx— 5 9 0 Wynn Lown (3) Pierce (4' Staley (7) and Lollar: Craig Sherry (8) and Roseboro W— Sherry L— Staley Home runs — Chicago Lollar Los Angeles Hodges got something to shoot for next year” And so it went “I think Al Lopez did the best job of managing I’ve ever seen" j said sport-shirt Rill “We went a in one i with a ! her This means a club league can deal directly club in another league "We’re not going to stand still” he said "We hope to trade as much as we can” Mexican Soccer Team Defeats US 2-0 MEXICO CITY UP - Mexico defeated the United States 2-0 Thursday night in the first of their two amateur soccer games to decide which will get to compete in NE Football Briefs Fifth Game at Los Angeles Oct 6 Chicago 000 100 000-1 5 0 Los Angeles 000 000 000—0 9 0 Shaw Pierce 8) Donovan (8) j and Lollar Koufax Williams (8) (and Roseboro Pignatano (8) W— I Shaw L— Koufax BOSTON (AP) — Boston University will have a sophomore look when it faces West Virginia tonight in what coach Steve Sinko terms a-“must” game Losers of their first two starts the Terriers "are not that bad a team” according to Sinko “The veterans have disappointed me and the sophomores will be used more than before” Sinko said defense which has surrendered six !
