The hustling Avila was hitting only .207 In the American League when the Braves purchased him from Boston, but he got off to a poor start with Baltimore, then had started to pick up after being sold to the Red Sox. He has proved in the past he can hit. In fact, in 1954 Avila won the American League batting crown with a .341 mark, slammed 15 homers, a pair of triples and 27 doubles and led the league in sacrifices with 19. At that time he was playing with Cleveland, where he spent his first 10 years in the majors from 1949 through 1958. In 1951 he hit .304 and in 1952 he was a .300 hitter. That year of 19S4 was a good one for the Veracruz native. He was named the Sporting News' outstanding player in the American League and was picked to that paper's all-star major league team. His hitting helped pace Cleveland to the American League pennant, in the All-star game of 1954, Avila was S-for-S and counted a pair of RBI. Milwaukee has tried everyone else at the second base spot. My guess would be that Avila will come closer to filling Red Schoendienst's shoes than any of the others. "I thought the trading deadline was passed," some fans have said. Others ask why, if he is such a hot shot, none of the American League clubs picked Avila uj^ first. The trading deadline is passed within the leagues. A player may go from one league to the other, however. In order for a player to switch leagues, the team owning him must get waivers. If he is claimed by another team for the waiver price, the owning team may withdraw and keep the player. In the case of a player who other teams know will be withdrawn if he is claimed, they may pass M him Just to get him out of the league. * * * * * * Lombardf Has Been Trading RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Jnljr I95» 8e«.

Blues Shade Cubans 5-3, Paige Sharp as Starter HAVERFORD, Pa. — i/P) — Ian Vermaak of South Africa scored a major .surprise .Saturday by upsetting lop-.secded Alex Olmedo, Wimbledon titleholder from Los Angeles, 6-2, 6-4, 6-2. in reaching the final round of the 60»h Pennsylvania lnwn tennis championships. A oapacity crowd of 2,.'>00 at the Morion Cricket Club saw Barry MacKny of Dayton, Ohio, fill the other place in the final round in defense of his title by winning from Ramnnnthan Krishnan, of India. 2-6. 6-4, 6-2. 6-1. MacKay, a member of the 1958 U.S. Davis Cup team, will play Vermaak, a member of the .South African Davis Cup team, for the title this afternoon. Vermaak All The Way The loss for Olmedo was his first on grass since Wimble don, and his second setback since his listless performance in losing to Abo Segal of South The Racine Blues errupted for four runs in the third inning to take a 5-3 win over Satchel Paige's Cuban Allstar team Saturday night at Horlick Athletic Field before an estimated 800 fans. According to the Allstars, the Blues were the first Wisconsin team to win over them. Paige, the Ageless One of organized baseball, pitched the first two innings, displaying a smooth and effortless style, then retired from the game. The former big leaguer, who is estimated to be some 53 years old, had no trouble in his two innings of work. He fanned four and no one got a ball out of the infield. The Blues found Paige's successor, Andy Hebra, but good in the third inning. Ed Freeman led off with a walk and Clyde Maiden bunted neatly for a safe hit. Jack Trott and Alvis Cobb then laced back-to-back doubles for three runs and Fred Bell singled to center for the fourth run of the inning. Meanwhile, Ray Arndt, on loan from Kenosha for the game, blanked the Allstars for four innings before they counted an unearned run in the fifth. He had no further trouble until the ninth when a walk, a double, a passed ball and a wild pitch scored two runs for the Cubans. Bell and Arndt copped hitting honors for the Blues, Bell getting a double and two singles in four trips to the plate and Arndt two hits in four tries. Today the Blues will meet Love Park, 111., at 2 p.m. at Horlick Athletic Field. Cuban Allilar—R Rkcinc Blue* Oratn Bay Packer head coach and general manager Vince Lombatdi has done nothing to make the board of directors S igMt their decision in hiring him last winter. He traded off illy Howton, at one time the National Football League 's best e st receiver, and got Bill Quintan, a defensive end, and Lew irpenter, an offensive halfback, in return. Ha picked up Lamar McHan from the Cardinals. He sent Marv Matuszak to Baltimore. Every deal should help the Packers. McHan Is listed as a quarterback, llhat's where he played with the Cards. It wouldn't surprise me, however. If Lombardl switched him to halfback In an effort to open Green Bay's offense. Paul Homung, who has been . playing fullback, can pass. He played quarterback for Notre Dame. McHan can pass. Bart Starr or Joe Francis, If he has had sufficient seasoning in one year, can pass from the quarterback slot. That could create a pretty potent weapon if they all got in at the same time. The Packers opened their rookie camp Thursday and vet- •rani reported Saturday. Spaaidng of pro footliall, Street and Smith's new football yearbook has a good thing to say for a Racine pro fridder. The publication analyzes San Francisco 49ers defensive backfield as noticeably weak, with the exception of Jerry Mortens. Mertens caught a lot of Roger LaBrasca (another Racine St. Catherine's alum) touchdown passes at Drake before being drafted by the 49ers as their 21st choice before the 1958 season. Most 21st choices get lopped off long before the season starts. Mertens, however, soon nailed down a starting Job aa defensive halfback and is becoming one of the best •round. Vinc9 Lombardi Wright Cops Lead with 70, 69 by Rawls MOUNT PROSPECT, 111. — — National Open champion Mickey Wright carved four strokes off par with a 70 Saturday for a 36-hole total of 145 to take the halfway lead in the $20,000 Mount Prospect Women's Open golf tournament. Pressing the 24-year-old blonde from Bonita. Calif., was Betsy Rawls with a competitive course record of 69 for 146, a total matched by Louise Suggs with her second successive 73. The 31-year-old Miss Rawls, winner of six tourneys this year, including the ladies PGA title, completely tamed the 6 , 4 2 1 - y a r d par 37-37—74 Mount Prospect course. She hit 17 greens in regulation,' had five one-putt greens, found the rough only three times and never was trapped in a 34-35— 69 effort. The old course record of 71 was set by Beverly Hanson in Wednesday's pro - a m a t e u r event. Also bettering that mark was 45-year-old Fay Crocker of Montevideo, Uruguay, the 1955 U.S. Open champion whose 70 gave her 148.

Sheboygan shortstop Jim Bielfuss belted two home runs, one a three-run job off starter Harlan Fedders to climax a six-run third inning and another three-run blast to top an eight-run seventh inning. The later clout was off Jerry Larsen. YMCA Baseball MUNIIAY 8:00 A.M.^Sou. Aoaoc-LnukoulK v>. ChlulCN 8;00 AM. -Sou. Asuoc— TinvBlem v». Pellcnns iPony Btadlum) B:45 A.M.—Sou. Assoc.—Chlclcn v«.

More of the squad 's veteran's reported, raising to 60 the number of players in camp. They skipped the heavy going but watched as the rookies banged about in line scrim- ' mage and one-on-one drills.
