Trippi and Bidwill were in Chicago for the signing ceremonies Events in New York yesterday represtneo something between a double reverse and a cutoff play. Trippi, whose ability as a catapult-armed outfielder, is rivaled only by his talents as a whiz-bang halfback, was wined, dined, and almost signed by the baseball-football Yankees. L. S. MaePhail, baseball bombast of the Yankee orgaization. said: •‘First of all. we offered Trippi a cash bonus for signing. Then we guaranteed him two seasons of ba.-e ball in 1947 and 1948. and one season of football in 1947. But, having done that, we also Insisted upon the right to decide after 1947 where he should play either football ot baseball for us.” A published report, meanwhile, declared that the giant Y’ankee Stadium Corporation, headed by MaePhail. Del Webb and Dan Topping, offered Trippi a total in salary and bonuses of $105,000 to play five years of football an two years of baseball. It was stipulated, the report added, that Trippi would have to choose between baseball and football after two years. Capital In Seventh, Otters Win THE DAILY TIMES S port S FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 1947.
