'.., ' ;,.,/.«·,--,- ·'· · ? /By OAYLE TALWJT » of the fairly modern ftneration who did not see Ty his best and. has never understood how : it was possible for t ball player to run the bases the way they say Ty did, we are looking forward to the coming season with something more than normal curiosity. : The reason is that Rogers Hornsby says he has a man who is the closest thing to a throwback to Cobb he has seen, a fellow who will have Hornsby'i permission to run almost as he pleases, and who will prove to ic*ara, skeptics brought up in the era of ' the rabbit bail that the oiatimeri aren't just dreaming. If you've followed the sports pages at all this spring you know the player -- Jim Rivera, a 30- year-old outfielder coming up to the St. Louis Browns from Seattle, where he helped Hornsby-win a Pacific Coast League flag last year with a .352 sticking average and 33 stolen bases and just about every other honor that .wasn't nailed down. First Slnct Cobb "He's the only player in the game today I'd pay my way into the park to see," Hornshy says seriously. "He's .the only man since Cobb with the speed and the instinct to run a catcher and an infield crazy. He's a little tight now. He's been reading them clippings about himself. But wait until he settles down. He'll show you base running like you never saw before." s The Rajah continued: Maybe it doesn't make sense to you, but you'll see. Rivera will rim, and he'll get away with it. What do you think they.were using for thrdwing arms when Cobb was running?" We said we..often had wondered about that. Could Throw Good "Them catchers," Hornsby said, "could throw as good as any around today, and some of them a lot better. There was one rookie catcher. I remember, name of Idling. He told the newspaper boys that he was looking forward to seeing Cobb try to run against him. He was going to throw him out every time. Ty must ve read it. "Anyway; first time he got on base, Ty hollered, "Hey, Khng, I'm going down on the next pitch, and he did.. Slid under the throw, and Kling never was the same again." . . . . Jim, himself, doesn't know how it's going to come out, but hes looking forward to giving It a try. He hasn't been hitting well against big league pitching so far, he readily admits, but he attributes it to over-anxiousncss and feels he will settle down once he quits reaching out for the ball. "Thirty IE 2 heck of an age to be breaking into the big leagues, isn't it?" he laughs. "Maybe I'll have a few years, anyway."

Leon - Brinkopf, a 25-year-old third basement who crashed 25 homers for r, 0 s Angeles of the Pacific Coast League last season, is being converted into in outfielder. Bob Rush, the elongated rijht- lander who was the winningest Cub pitcher in 1951 wit.1 il victories, is believed by Cub pitching coach Charlie Root to be on the verge of achieving greatness. He posted a 3.7» earned run average in 37 games last year. It's up to the rest of the ,oung- sters to prove themselves. Last year's experience may bring re- Without very much new talent, Manager Phil Cavarretta's main lope of making a better showing is that he can instill more hustle into his shaky lineup of veterans and youngsters. Phil, a 36-year-old first baseman took over from Frankie Frisch It the midpoint last season. At east, he has a running start t\'s season. He .expects to play 60 to 70 games himself. If Dee Fonriy proves himself a major bajuer, Phill will be able to do less playing. Fondy, a good man in the field who hit .37B for Los Angeles after being sent down by the Cubs last season, Is getting another chance to make good. The Cub infield will have plenty of experience, with either Ransom _ _jksoir%.r ; Bill .Serena at third; the veteran Roy Smalley-at short; and the ex-Brooklyn handyman Eddie second. .
