Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - January 12, 1954, Florence, South CarolinaPage 6 the Florence morning news Florence 8. C. Tuesday morning january 12, 1954 Phillips Esso takes City Cage opener Richards figures White sox letter than 53 club Chicago. Jan. 11 Piil Richards of the Chicago White sox adroitly sidestepped Pennant tall today but admitted his third place club of 1953 should be More flexible this season. We Are a sounder club than at and time since i be been the tall texan who arrived in Chicago for a master minding ses Sion with his staff. There s so much general improvement in the league that i Don t think any club will win 18 in a Row like the Yankees did last season. Boston can be much tougher now that Ted Williams is Back and Jackie Jensen was obtained from Washington. Washington is gradually building a club tailored for its Park. And Detroit is com ing right along. I m not going to concede any thing to Casey Stengel and the Yankees and maybe for the first time in quite a while i will have company in this respect. We be reached a Point where we Are no longer to be taken lightly by the Yankees or any other club. That Means we Are due to get the Best they have whenever we show up and in return we be got to give it All we be got from the Start to finish. I m about convinced this has got to be the White sox year or Richards is More impressed with acc Gal golfers compete at Sumter ten women will represent the Florence country club today in Sumter to play in the South Caro Lina women s Golf Assn. One Day medal play tournament at the Sun dec country club. Scheduled to compete from Flor ence Are Georgia Tallevast Jackie Hewitt lib Allen Al Lewis Lucille Elmore Kora Alderman. Charlotte Houck Cam Quantz Mary Orr and Boz Ellen Bennett. His pitching prospects than any time since he joined the sox in 1951. He praised Virgil trucks Billy Pierce Sandy Consuegra and Harry Dorish. Then he added if Bob Keegan keeps up where he left off last year he should be a starter. Mike Fornieles can t help but still just a kid. Then there s always a Chance some of our new men will like Jack Harshman 23-7 with Nashville and Don Johnson 15-12 with Toronto and several deals for infielder Cass Michaels and Willard Marshall slugging out fielder add the important flexibility. I can t say now if Michaels will play third for Richards said. I still look upon Minny Minoso As a third base Prospect instead of in the Outfield. But until Marshall joined us i was t in a Good Posi Tion to Experiment with Minoso. Now if Minoso turns out to be our third baseman i know Marshall can play left Field. If Michaels is on third Minny stays in left and i can alternate Marshall with Sam Mele in right Field and not impair Mir strength on either defense or offence. I also know Bill Wilson looks Good in Centerfield and would look better with improved hitting. Of course we also have Jim Rivera for that spot. No on can question Jim s competitive spirit.1 Richards looks for improvement in catching skills particularly tic poise of red Wilson Sherm lol Lar s aide in 1953. He s just about i set with Nellie Fox at second Fer i Ris Fain at first and Chico Carras Quel at shortstop. And i m sure Marty Marion the sox new coach can work won Ders with our infielders he is an accepted master of infield added Richards. Right now i m inclined to think that having mar Ion with us As coach could be the Best Deal we be made since we got trucks and Consuegra last Tatum again noted in Wolf pack Hunt Raleigh n.c., Jan. 11 he Mei nobers of a committee search ing for a new head football coach at North Carolina state College plan to Confer with Maryland coach Jim Tatum at Richmond va., wednesday.
