The reconstructed Brooklyn Dodgers supplied the color, the crowd and the ceremony today for their the door, causing Greenberg to; fly to Averill and York to ground! to Lary, ending the Inning. The Tigers went hitless in the second and third, but In the fourth put on a two-run scoring party that tied the count. Greenberg opened the festivities with a triple debut berore the Flatbush home folks, but the New York Giants won the game, 3 to 2. To make the anguish of the onlookers all the more Well-wishers crowded around Schoolboy Rowe in the Tiger clubhouse after Fridays game with the Indians and gave him approving pats on the back. "That was great. Lyn," one said, and the Schoolboy agreed that it was. "On of the finest things I've ever seen," said another. And the Schoolboy agreed that it was. They sure were nice," said the Schoolboy. "They? What do you mean, they?" "Why. the fans, of course," said the Schoolboy. "I'm talking about the way they received me. Boy. I never felt so good in my life. I'd be willing to pitch my old arm oft for that kind of people." Well, anyway, the Schoolboy was pretty good, too. The Old Time Baseball Players Association staged their parade to the ball park before the game, and 16 members of the association, vho actually had played with the Tigers in other years, helped in the flag-raising ceremonies. Former Tigers in the flag raising, timing which tribute was paid to the late Frank J. Navin, included Oscar Stanage, Marty Kavanaugh, Wish Egan, Ed Egan, Bernie Bo-land, Clyde Manion, Davcy Jones, Frank Sheibeck, Bob Veach, Mike Menoaky, Bert Lerchen, Frank Fuller, Harry Leibold, Eddie Cicotte, Rob Lowe, Fred Fayne, Frank Bowerman, Miles Main and Nig Clarke.

Checked ior six innings by Luke Hamlin, the Giants scored the tying run when Hank Leiber's double scored Mel Ott in the seventh. Danning's double and Moore's single combined with Bar-tell's decisive blow to account for two more runs in the eighth. Harry Gumbert, making his first start, went the route for the Giants, but needed all his resources to escape disaster. Dolph Camilli drove in the first Dodger run with a double in the fourth, and produced the second with a towering blow over the right-field screen for his second homer of the season. Lavagetto, cleanup batter with a .688 average, was forced out of the Dodger line-up when he pulled a muscle in, his right leg.

Sometimes people ask me why I am a sports writer, and their very tone tells me that they think my business is an unimportant one and doesn't matter much in the world scheme of things. Sometimes I almost feel they're right and then again along comes an afternoon like yesterday afternoon, when the breeze is soft and the sun is warm, and the Polo Grounds is all bright and green, and Raymond Brinkerhoff experiences the thrill that comes once in a lifetime. I don't know of any business that lets a man look on human emotions more than sportswriting does.

And Denny waved two fistsfuls of roses, lillies of the valley and be scared, nervous, shaky and no good. Raymond fooled him. Loose as Hubbell, Raymond whipped 'em across the plate. The early customers in the Polo Grounds who were watching, didn't bother him a bit. A fast ball. A change of pace. A curve. Raymond threw them all up there. Before he was through, Stengel was watching him closely. So were Turner and Fette, Boston's star pitchers. And on the other side of the field, the old master Hubbell stopped his warming up to take a look, as did Terry a Gus Mancuso and others who know a natural pitching motion when they see one. Raymond came back to the dugout. Casey asked him if he could go to Boston with the Bees.

Raymond came over, and as he stood there, all elbows and knees and neck and all the other things that go to make up a boy who hasn't quite yet become a man, Casey told me about him.
