to Qo! ers Whip White Sox in Opener 153 Tig Neivhouser Wins, 5-2, on 8-Hitter Vico Clouts Homer First Time at Bat BY JAMES ZERILLI Free Press Staff Writer CHICAGO Their rookies played like veterans. That was all the Tigers needed behind the eight-hit pitching of Hal Newhouser to beat the Chicago White Sox, 5 to 2, in the 194S opener for both clubs. George Vico, Detroit first baseman, fulfilled a rookie's dream in the third inning when he hit his first major league pitch for a home run off Starter Joe Haynes. It was a line drive that traveled 370 feet into the rightfield stands. Vico also performed like an old-time in the field. NEIL BERRY, Tiger rookie shortstop, also came out of his big league debut with a happy grin. He accepted all his fielding chances flawlessly and had a hand in a throe-run tiger ninth that hroke a 2-all deadlock for the victory. His only hit of the game drove in a run in that frame. Newhouser went all the way and the victory gave him a 16-15 lifetime advantage over the White Sox. Hal now has an edffe over every team in the American League. Included among his eight hits was a home run by Catcher Rlike Tresh, former Detroit Southeastern High athlete. Another Tiger who deserves honorable mention is Freddie Hutchinson, the pitcher who oftentimes serves as a pinch-hitter. HUTCH WAS called' upon to do his stuff in the ninth and his single sent home the run that 1 ull Page of Tictures on Back Page broke the tie. After that, the Tigers rubbed it in by picking up two more runs. Haynes had retired the Tigers in simple 1-2-3 fashion, until Vico planted his homer into the stands in the third. Detroit wasted hits by Hoot Kvers, Dick Wakefield and Vic Wertz in the fourth because Evers was caught off first when Wakefield missed a sacrifice attempt. . IN THE MEANTIME, the Chi- mx started a rebellion on several SOX HIT 'ACCORDING TO PLAN' 20 DETROIT FREE PRESS Wednesday, April 21, 1948 Skull ession Pays Dividends r n i ror pengais BY JAMES ZERILLI ' Free Pres Staff Writer CHICAGO The Detroit Tigers had a lengthy pre-game meeting before taking the field. They discussed where and how to play the Chicago White Sox batters, who are pretty good punch-hitters. It was a worthwhile confab, for the Tiger outfielders saved Hal Newhouser on many occasions. They came up with several line drives only because they happened to be playing in the right spots. This was particularly true in the eighth, when the White Sox tied the score and threatened seriously . to draw away. The last two outs of the inning were liners that Dick Wakefield took in left after short gallops. DIZ TROUT, who will pitch against the White Sox in the second game of the series Wednesday, has a 24-13 lifetime record against them. Diz Is unusually anxious to get a crack at the White Sox this season. The Tigers put him on the market last year and Chicago was one of the six teams to spurn him. "I'm glad they didn't want me," he said, "but I'm going to try hard to make 'em sorry for turning me down." MIKE TRESH, the former De-trot Southeastern High athlete, is the player Detroit just "tossed in" when it traded Gee Walker and Marvin Owen for Vernon Kennedy, Tony Piet and Fred (Dixie) Walker in 1937. Mike turned out to be the big bargain of that deal, as far as the White Sox are concerned. He has been their No. 1 catcher for nine straight years, and he rates as one of the game's top receivers. When Umpire Ed Rommel yelled "Play ball," he officially inaugurated Steve O'Neill's sixth season as Tiger manager. Ty Cobb also piloted Detroit for six years. Only man to surpass their records as Tiger pilots was Hughie Jennings, who guided Detroit for 14 years in a row, starting in 1907. JERRY SCALA, rookie center fielder, who was listed to start for Chicago but didn't because of a spike wound, would be a good stand-in for Joe DiMaggio. He even wears his pantaloons with that low look, a la DiMaggio.

In the third, Dave Philley, who made three of his team's eixht hits, started off with a double, Tresh sacrificed. But Haynes best was a roller to Newhouser and Don Kolloway was an easy third out. In the fourth, Luke Appling and Jiob Kennedy got singles. But ugain Newhouser squeezed out of trouble. IN THE FIFTH, with a man on second and two .out, Newhouser again escaped. Detroit made t 2-0 in the sixth, which the veteran Eddie Mayo started with a two-bagger. Evers sacrificed him to third. Wakefield, with two hits to his credit, then tried to pull away from an inside pitch. The ball accidentally hit his bat and the result was a bounder to short. Mayo holding third as Wakefield was being pegged out. With Vic Wertz at bat, Haynes uncorked a wild pitch. Mayo com-inr home. Then Wertz singled. IN THE SEVENTH, with two out, the 14,801 partisan fans got their first chance to stomp and r hout. Tresh caught a Newhouser pitch on the fat of his bat and ( rove into the leftfield stands. It was only Tresh's second homer of his big league career and his nrst since 1940. The Sox tied it up in the eighth pnd, in a way, Newhouser was kicky they didn't go past the Tigers. WITH ONE out, Appling got k's second hit a smash off New-houser's glove. Tony Lupien then came , through perfectly on a hit-and-. inn play. Appling went to third on the play. Then Kennedy lined to Wake-' 'icld, Appling bringing in the tying nn. When Wakefield's throw went past Catcher Bob Swift, Lupien went to second.

ROBINSON'S TRIU3IPH First Negro Admitted to Nine DBF BY BOB LATSHAW By a unanimous vote of the membership, the Detroit Amateur Baseball Federation admitted the Trojans, the first Negre team to play in the organization in its 33-year history. At. the same time, President Frank Shields ordered the application of a second Negro team, the Detroit Bruins, tabled until an investigation of the team is completed. The action came during a surprisingly quiet weekly meeting of the DBF. Shields declared that "a partial investigation showed irregularities" that must be probed further before the group could pass on the Bruins' application. Standings AMERICAN LEAGUE W L, Tct.

BBLL LAUTtENCE, manager of the Bruins, denied the allegations and pointed out that his team won the Recreation League title in Class A last year. The admission of the Trojans can be classed as a personal victory for Will Robinson, Miller High School coach. He has been the guiding force in gaining entry for the Negro team. When he first made application for a place in the Class C bracket, Robinson declared that his boys "would uphold every law of the Federation and would be a credit to the organization." Robinson's record as a successful and hard-working coach in the City high school league recom mended him highly to the officers of the DBF. HIS MOST prominent achievement has been in basketball in the prep circuit. Robinson's teams have won the city title for the last two years, and the Trojans were runnerups the previous year. After the meeting Robinson was jubilant over his victory. 'T couldn't see how they could keep our team out," Robinson said. "But when they started jockeying the entries, frankly I didn't know what would happen." Fears that the league would be far under last year's 133-team figure were dispelled by a last-minute rush of entries. Class A closed its entry with 16 teams. None will be admitted later. IN CLASS B, where 48 teams competed last year, there were 41 entries. It was moved that the bracket be limited to 40 teams. Class C had 13 in the fold and one more coming in. That group had 12 last year. Only one class showed a decrease from last year. That was Class D, where only eight teams are currently signed. There were 24 in the division in 1947. Locke Still Leads Open 67 Nets 131, 4-Shot Edge over Palmer SOUTHERN PINES, N. C (U.R) Bobby Locke, of South Africa, carded a five-under-par 67 to keep his lead at the halfwray point of the Carolinas Open golf tournament with a two-round score of 131. Locke, defending the crown he won here last year, shot a record-smashing 64 Monday, three strokes under the old mark for the par-72 Mid-Pines course. THE DAY'S BEST round was the work of Johnny Palmer, of Badin, N. C, who shot all threes and fours for a 65. It pulled him up from third to second place with a halfway tally of 135. Johnnv Bulla, plajing out of High Point, N. C, fell off with a 72. He slid to third place on a total of 141. He was second in Monday's qualifying round with a 69. Charles Farlow, Greensboro (N.C.) pro, took a 68 Tuesday for 142. Skip Alexander, playing his home course, racked up his second 72 for a 144 and a tie with Al W Hegan Clinches It with Two-Run Homer CLEVELAND UP) Bob Feller blanked the St Louis Browns with two hits as the Cleveland Indians won their opening American League game 4-0 before 73,163 fans That was a new major league opening day attendance record. Catcher Jim Hegan rapped a two-run homer for the Indians in the fourth inning. ST.

TJiat's why Manager Ted Lyons did not start him at second. Cass said he made seven hits in 36 times up and admitted he was not meeting the ball solidly. Cass revealed he was getting married in Detroit on July 10 to Miss Margaret Stieber. THE DUBIOUS distinction of being the first Tiger to hit into a double play this season went to George Kell, who paced the team's hitters in 1947. With Wakefield on first and one out, Kell drove the ball hard to third and a twin-killing resulted. Hoot Evers' running catch of Tresh's liner'saved Newhouser a lot of trouble in the fifth. None were out and one was on base at the time. ALTON BENTON, mammoth Tiger pitcher who has been out of action a month with a back injury, got his opening-day baseball via radio from his hotel bed in Detroit. . Benton, sent back to Detroit from the south 10 days ago to be placed under a doctor's care, spent three days in a hospital. Then he transferred to his hotel, where he is concentrating on the "rest" physicians ordered. Al said the trouble consists of pulled tendons in his back, plus a pressure on a nerve. He hopes to be back in uniform Friday when the Tigers open their home season. 0 s 1 l 1 3 2 11 't 3 1 1 3 4 0 O Totals 29 SI 14 Totals 31 11 27 11 aFlied otit for Znldak In (.ixth. b(j rounded oat tor Steitliens in eighth.

Head Coach and General Manager Bo McMillin announced that Mann had agreed to terms after a short conference. Mann is the fifth end and the 37th player the Lions have under contract for next season. The other flankmen are Ted Cook, Ted Cre-mer, Johnny Greene and Kelley Mote. WITH THE unbeaten Wolverines last season, Mann caught 12 passes for a gain of 302 yards. He snagged three passes that were good for touchdowns. In addition to his outstanding ability as a pass receiver, Mann was extremely valuable to Michigan on Fritz Crisler's pet end-around play. The play was worked 15 times with Mann as the ball carrier and gained 129 yards.

T , He deserves that honor? Sure he does. He s a great pitcher, n ringed competitor, a swell guy. And then there was the Tues day afternoon of May 2, 1939. Hutchinson was a 19-year-old tousle-haired kid that day when the New York Yankees came to Detroit. He was fresh from his first season in organized ball when he set a record by winning 25 games and losing seven for Seattle. v wa mm tn the Timers for a handful of players and a cash exchange estimated at $60,000. He had yet to pitch a big- league game but his back already was Dowea wim uie avaia-acne of Dress clippings that had made him the most highly touted rookie pitcher to hit the bigtime. That day ... May 2, 1939 ... is in the record books of baseball. It is in Hutchinson's personal memory book, too, but for a different reason. That was the day First Baseman Lou Gehrig bowed for the first time to the disease that finally took 't nlav that dav. For the first time in 2,130 games his name was .not in the starting Yankee line-up where it had been posted proudly and dangerously every game since june, 1S25. . Hutch in Clutch on Mound THAT DAY HOLDS OTHER memories for Hutchinson. Man ager Del Baker gave him his first taste of major-league competition in the sixth inning. He sent in Hutchinson, the 19-year-old rookie, with the bases loaded with Yankees and nobody out. What happened nearly changed the career of a pitcher who is now -universally regarded as one of the finest righthanders in the game. Tipoff came on the first batter he faced. He was Babe Dahlgren, the fill-in for the idled Gehrig. Hutch walked him with the bases loaded to force in a run. Before Baker took him out, the fabulous rookie had given up seven runs, three hits and five walks. Thene still was only one man out. Final score was a monstrous 22-7 triumph for the Yankees, a victory they still claim was a personal tribute to Lou Gehrig who sat wet-eyed on the Yankee bench for the first time in 2.130 sames. ;.-...v.v.A KtTTl . T JiJ Al 1 J J . . vvnai x cua mar. aay ajmosr. ruinea me, HUTCHINSON Hutchinson says. "And, at the same time, it made me whatever kind of a pitcher I am today. I lost my poise completely. I was scared . . . shaking . . . mentally and bodily. When I was on my way back to the minors a few days later I swore I d never collapse like that again. I never have." He Learned The Hard Way - THAT DAY WAS TYPICAL of Hutchinson's first days whereever he went on his baseball travels. The previous year he made his debut in organized ball with Seattle before a packed park in San Diego. He was highly touted then just as he was a year later when he hit the Tigers. "That time I never retired a single batter before they me out of there," Fred admits. "I walked the leadoff man, gave a double to Cedric Durst, a single to Spencer Harris and then walked the fourth and fifth batters. Boom ... it was all over." Hutchinson bounced back from this disastrous start to win 25 games that year and bounce to Detroit. After his debacle at Briggs Stadium the following year he was shipped to Toledo and once again his first start was a failure as he lost to Milwaukee. But his determination pulled him through again and he started back up the ladder the hard way. . He starred at Buffalo, came back to the Tigers, had the war take four vears out of his career and then came back again in '46 to start at a salary of $7,500 a year. That salary has been trebled now. Pitcher Fred Hutchinson finally has "arrived." That's why he has drawn the honor of pitching the home opener Friday . . . nine long years after his disastrous debut on the afternoon of May 2, 1939, when Lou Gehrig laid down his glove. .A .w ROLLS 496 AFTER 702 OPENER Augello Fails in Bid to Take All-Events Lead BY W.
