The chunky, 25-year-old Califor- Jilan made his debut in the Mexican League yesterday, singling in Ihc ninth inning to give the Vera Crux Blues a fi to 4 victory over the Nuevo Laredo team to the wild cheers of some 35,000 lans at Delta Park. They immediately selected Stephens as their favorite player. Stephens' switch, from an American leaguer to a Mexican hero, came quick. Ho jumped the St. Louis Browns Saturday and joined his new teammates yesterday. In addition to his game-winning single, a sharp drive to left field, he fielded flawlessly, starling two double plays. Two other former major leaguers .figured prominently in Vera Cruz' triumph. Roberto Estalella, ex-Philadelphia Athletic player, made his fourth home run in as many games while Danny 'Jar- dclla, former New York Giant out- lieldLjr, singled home the tying run in the ninth before Stephens came to bat. Interviewed at the home of Jorge Pasquel, Mexican League president, Stephens said lie was "very happy and .regardless of what they say in St. Louis, I believe a player has the right to accept the best offer." Stephens, one of the American League's top wartime hitern and the Sparkplug of the Browns' American League championship team in 1944, faces a five-year suspension from organized ' baseball lor jumping to a so-called outlaw league.

Of coin-so, Head Coach John Barnhill correctly maintains that a football 'team can't have to many good players. But consider these boys who are among the candidates for the fullbacking assignment: John Hoffman, the former terror of Little Rock High school who led the Southwest Conference in [round-gaining last fall — his first 'ear with the Porkers; _ Tommy Donoho, erstwhile Fort imith all-slater who was a starter in the 1944 Razorback cloven ,-md hen spent most of last season on lie bench due to illness; John Shaddox, the Nashville -ligh product who made a big lame in service football anrl has lad the railbirds screaming his oraises; Buddy Jaber, Fort Smith, a prewar Razorba'ck full; Jake Davis, sparkplug of a fine 'ayctcvillc prop team before the war and a star while in the army air forces; Willis Ford, former Blytheville all-stater who developed ' further vhilc in service. They're all in the fold, ,-ilong vith other candidates, which as- nires a merry battle for the staring nod.

EARL BARBER Miami, Fla., April 1 — (UP)— The New York Giants had cause lo wonder today whether they arc becoming a farm club for the Mexican Baseball League —and Chat's not an April Fool's Day joke! Owner Horace Stoneham of the Giants, who already had lost outfielder Danny Gardella and In- ficlder Napoleon Reyes to the outlaw lop, sent three more players south-of-the-border yesterday by firing the truculant trio before they had a chance to "jump" their contracts. Although one of the players was a regular .Second Baseman George Hausmann, .Sloneham termed the loss good riddance and warned that any other players who dicker with Mexican League representatives will be fired. Stoncham's unprecedented purge came yesterday during a clubhouse meeting which the Giants' boss and manager, Mel Ot called after they learned that Salvatore Maglie, 28- year-old righthander, already had signed with Jorge Pasquel .Mexican League president, and. was preparing to desert his Giant contract. Stoneham immediately dismissed Maglie, who was brought up from Jersey City last year, and then went down the list of players to determine whether anyone else had been negotiating with the lucrative Latins. Both Hausmann and Roy Zinner man, reserve first baseman, ad milted they had been in contact with Pasquel and Sloneham iired them wilh Ihc curt statement that "you no longer arc members of the Giants." "We don't want any players on this club," Stoneham said, "who arc negoliating wilh an outlaw league when you already have signed with the Giants." Then the Giants' president took one last look around the room to see if any other players wanted to confess Mexican meandering and left the room, adding that "I wish you luck and I ho.e you get your money." Hausmann and Zimmerman then told reporters that they had agreed to terms with Pasquel but had not definitely made up their minds to quit until Stoneham's purge. "We're going to catch an airplane to Mexico City today," Hausmann said, "since that's the way the Giants want it." Hausmann, who was receiving approximately $8,000 from the Gianls, said lhal bolh he and Zimmerman, a $0,000 player, had agreed to Pasquel's offer to double their present salaries, plus a $5,000 •bonus for signing and $1,000 for i expenses. r The triple loss put a crimp in Oil's plans, although it was the Giants' manager who learned of the Mexican dealings and suggested the purge. Maglie probably won't be missed but the departure of Hausmann Zimmerman takes a good chunk from the left side of the Giants' infield. Hausmann, the Giants' regular second baseman last year when he hit .279, was considered a good bet 10 start the season at his old spot again while Zimmerman, a 32-h'ome run hitter with Newark last season, was going to be carried by the Giants as a utility player and pinch niter.
