O wltt the UM-rrad bt TIMER 4.11?. Outfidd Talent Giants To Give Wakefield Another Chance At Big Leagues H o u s t o n , Texas-(/P)-,The Dick*Wakefield story enters a new chapter today, perhaps the last. Wakefield, baseball's' so-called "problem child," has received another opportunity to proye he belongs in the major leagues. The New York Giants, in dire straights due to the'loss of outfielder Monte Irvin with a broken ankle and the impending induction of flychaser Willie Mays, will give Wakefield a "try out." Manager Leo Durochcr said today Wakefield "will play in the outfield someplace. I don't know, I just want to look him over and see what he's got." Al Lopez, manager of the Clcve land Indians, said: "He can help the Giants, if he really wants to play." Dick was the first of the big bonus babies. He received around $55,000 and a new automobile when signed by the Detroit Tigers in 1941 while attending the University of Michigan. Wakefield started off In grand style. He led the Texas League in hitting with Beaumont in 1942 and batted .316 in his first season with Detroit in 1943. The following season found Benson, DeQueen Ace, Headed For Oklahoma De Queen, Ark.-(fl)-Buddy Bob Benson, the flashy quarterback who led De Queen High School to an undefeated season last ytar, will play his college football at the University of Oklahoma.

Keei np with the times--read the TIMES dallr. Wakefield in the Navy but he was released in mid-season and almost slugged Detroit to the 1944 pennant, belting .355 in 78 games. The potential star was called back into the Navy in 1945 but returned to Detroit in 1946 and has been a problem ever since. Detroit traded Wakefield to the Yanks. He held out in the spring and the Yanks traded him to the Chicago White Sox shortly after the start of the season. Chicago called the deal off when Wakefield demanded a $5,500 sal- ary increase but former Commissioner A. B. Chandler voided th« deal and the stormy petrel returned to the Yanks. · The Yanks finally fold him to Oakland of the Pacific Coast League. He was released by Oakland in 1951 and since has been- without a job. Geenral Manager Hank Greenberg gave the 29-year-old outfielder another chance this spring but he failed to stick. Wakefield visited Lawton of the Sooner. State League last season" with an eye to a tie-up but it did not work out.
