Marion L ikely JoBeK ey Man In Browns'Revamped Lineup (By The Associated Press) · *4lJ|y Marion, the deposed manager qf the St. Louis Cardinals and current shortstop of the St Louis Browns, could be a big help to Rogers Hornsby's gang ol yo'ungsters. Not t h a t . a n y one is t a k i n g the Brownies seriously this year. But with a fellow like- "viarion around to direct, the infield and pitchers like Ned Carver, Bob Cain, Tom Byrne and Gene Beardon, they could finish somewhere above last in the American League. Marion, though, is the key man. , He didn't play a game last year, but he thinks he'll be able to go about 100 this time if his injured leg holds up the way he thinks it will. "My leg isn't real strong yet." lie said today,' "but for the first time this spring, I'm actually enthusiastic about my chances." Well, they say spirit is contagious and Hornsby has it. So have his kids. Maybe the veterans will catch · on, too. Then the ' Brownies will win some games if they can get a little hitting.

Lazzeri. f j "I feel flattered just being r u n - ner-up to Tony," declares the balding young Sacramento manager. "I only saw Tony at the end of liis career, but I would like to think thc'it I playod nnnrly as good as he d i d . A f t e r he quit arid was running a restaurant in San Francisco, 'I used to drop in many times just to talk to Mm." Could be. Wo didn't see Lazzeri a great deal while he was at his peak. It Is difficult, though, to conceive of. him, or -any other second baseman, for .that matter, making greater plays" than Gordon did In the years he was with the Yanks and later with Cleveland. Up And Quit . ' Joe .just suddenly up and quit the big leagues^last j'ear to come out here and maiiHge. He slugged 43 home runs for Sacramento and was, according to all accounts, t h e best .-player In the Coast League. They say there was no inficlder in the'league to touch .him, nnd that is easy to believe. They serm to wonder what a player of his caliber is doing out there. The partial answer is t h n t Gordon always has teen a cowboy ut heart. He loves to wear big w h i t e hats, and back east lie couldn't rln it w i t h o u t being stared nt. On the West Coast nobody notions a n y thing, and Joe is in his clement. His biggest moment last season, they say, was when he was permitted to meet on of the leading horse opera stars in the flesh and to Hrin the la tier's equally famous trail, buddy, name of Trigger. NeWfangUd Contraei Joe has signed one of the Cnnst League's newfangled contracts which stipulates that he cannot IIP drafted back Into the mnjont. The Coast clubs nre giving no overall figures on this touchy subject, but. it is believed that there has been no concerted'rush .on the part of young players to ban themselves from the big show. Joe has no. .illusions about the -Coast . League,.*converting .itself into a third major league in "th? foreseeable future. The players, he says, simply are not here at this time, though he points out that the Coast League owners arc signing ynung players like nnd. "We were well down in the standings last year, but we rlrrw over 200,flnn," he said. "If we were in the big leagues and were up in the race, I think we might go over a half million, nnd that's all you need. "Our problem at the moment is to keep our promising young players. If we can offer them the kind of salaries they can make in Ihu big leagues they will stay out here. You can't beat the climate."
