CardsVYouth Defeated Yanks In '42 Series By BERNA7.D BRENNJCR United Trow Sport* Stuff The thousands of fans packed InLo New York's Yankee Stadium didn't quite believe it, but the St. Louis Cardinals had ono hand on the world's championship. That was back in 1942, and the day was the day at the fifth game of the world scries between the Yankees and Ihe Cards. The Redbirds needed just one more victory to carry home the championship— they'd won three of the first four games. That ddy was the climax of two long years of great baseball for Manager Billy Southworth and his speedy daredevils. In 1941 they had played I heir hearts out and finished second to the Brooklyn Dodgers by a shavcd-down whisker. Then in 1942 the Cards battled the Dodgers again. Brooklyn piled up the impressive total of H.-J victories—but this time nothing short of an army could slop the Cards. They won 100 games and the pennant. Southworth's crew of basc-path- burncsr rode Into the world series on a wave of high spirits and confidence. But baseball experts did not. concede the Cardinals' enthu siasm much chance against the •Yankees' power, Most of the stars that had helped the Yanks dominate Ihe American .league for years still wore the New York flannels. Bill Dickey crouched behind the plate—out in tho Infield Red Rplfo held down third and Phil Rizzulo played short —Joe Gordon was at second — and Joe Dl Mugglo still held down his post in. center field. Billy Southworth's lean and title hungry crew was a running; and slick fielding club. Billy had Stan Musial—his best hitter—in the oul- I'iekJ. -Marty Marlon with his scoop- shovel hands —• roamed around short. And for that fifth-game — the one that could give, the Cards the title if they won, Southworth chose his freshman pitching- slur, Johnny Bcazlcy.

Kor that fifth game, Manager Joe McCarthy of the Yanks rose to meet the challenge — he nominated bis right-handed ace. Red Kuffing. Red had a world scries record of seven victories and just one game lost. If anybody could stop tho sweeping Cardinals and keep the ! Yankee chances alive — Red way the man . The first six innings of that game was as even a battle as any ball game ever played. When they went into the seventh inning the game was all tied up at two-all. Beazley was holding bis own with Ruffing — but no more than thai. One of the Yankee runs was a homer by little 'Scooter Riz- xuto— the Yank shortstop.
