   Reno Evening Gazette (Newspaper) - June 4, 1932, Reno, Nevada                               SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 1932 RENO EVENING GAZETTE PAGE ELEVEN YOUNG CHIEFTAIN OF GIANTS IS NEW YORK, June 4. The New York Giants now have tne youngest manager In the National League mit there Is little danger any of them will attempt to take advant- age of Bill Terry. The big fellow from Memphis Is only thirty-three years old but he has a mind of his own and he doesn't hesitate to speak it. He will be man- ager of the Giants, right up to the hilt. The first thing he attended to after he was notified that he had suc- ceeded John J. McGraw was to post a notice to that effect in the .club house. Then he called In the players, many of them his teammates for years, and had a thorough under- standing. "I told them that from here on they take orders from me and from nobody else. I told them I was going to tase up on some of the strict rules we've had and give them a chance to play ball for me and get out of the basement; If they can't do that there will be some changes." Terry's elevation was a complete surprise to him. He never has, strict- ly speaking, been a member of the "McGraw school." He and the vet- eran manager were known to have had their disagreements, and no later than this spring McGraw was forced to make a special trip to reconcile Terry to his 1932 contract. McGraw. however, always had ad- mired a fighter and It perhaps was only natural he should thing of the big first baseman when he decided to step down. He asked Terry about It first. "He seemed relieved when I told him I would take the Terry said. "Looked like a man who had had a forty-pound weight lifted from his head. And he was mighty nice. He said to me: 'Bill, If you ever need any help from me or want my advice, Just ask for it. But you'll have to come for me because I'm not going to try to tell you how'to run the team'.'

Although he answers to "Memphis Bill' and has made his homo there for.Jears, Terry was born at Atlanta In 1S98- 'He. has'a home in Memphis, a rambling affair, that cost its original owner some to build, but Terry didn't pay anything like that price. Mrs. Terry and the three .Children, a boy and two girls, are at Memphis now but are coming to New York shortly to spend the remainder of the season with the head of the family. Originally a left-handed pitcher. Terry had extensive experience In the minors before he finally settled with the Giants as a first baseman the latter part of 1923. He was the prop- erty of Atlanta In 1914 and 1915 but old not play. His first real appear- ance was with Shreveport of the Texas League In '16 and '17, as a combination pitcher-outfielder. From '18 to '21, the records show, he played Independent ball, coming back Into the organized fold In 1922 with To- ledo. He even managed that club for a time In '23 nnd, as he admitted to- day, "did pretty well with it." Terry was a fair hitter for the Giants from the start, but It was not until 1929 that he Joined the front rank of sluggers with an average of .372. The next year he led the league with .401 but. with the advent of the less lively ball, dropped off last sea- son to .349. Chick Hafey then of the Cardinals, beat him out for the bat- ting championship by the narrowest of margins. The last averages had him hitting .314 for the present race with eleven home runs. even more spectacular than the exploits ihat made him so feared and respected a rival. As If his terse announcement that ill health made It advisable for him to relinquish his managerial duties win for him ten National league pen- ar.ts end three world scries, finish sec- ond ten times and wind up in the second division only twice. This year McGraw brought from the California tri'.nlng camp a team he thought was one of the best he days ever managed. But for reasons still unexplained his 1932 Giants could not win. He leaves them In last, place, winners of on'.y seventeen of their first forty.games. McGraw him- self, of course, has been on the bench infrequently this year, and Bancroft has been In charge most of the time.

Gchrig's record was not the only one to fall In the wild melee. The Yankees piled up a total of fifty bases on twenty-three hits and the two clubs had a combined total of seventy-seven bases.
