Piersall easily will get in another Baron game to qualify him for the All-Star team That's assuming the league writers rate Piersall’s superb fielding and steady hitting (well above 400 at the moment) worthy of All-Star require-ments The question arose when it was recalled that last year Charlie Maxwell wasn’t eligible for the All-Stars because he missed more than a month because of a lame shoulder

are so near that they can't miss being eligible Milo Johnson Ralph Brick-ner Jim Atchley Howard Anderson Glenn Cox Jim Pearce — naming a faw of the better chunkers— already have passed 70 innings Hit
