I. A gris some a left handed Isnit he a replied the manager the Grapefruit Lead of the world champions As though that were something out proved anything to Date ii of the Ordinary. And it is for Good southpaws suddenly have thai the Cincinnati Beds ? become As scarce As capable catchers. Lark Griffith cracked Jeu i Iff Grissom i in Quot fight for Mccarthy. Something about Washington having the finest port siders in the business which Well be True for Bow legged Joe Krakauskas and Kendall c Hase have tremendous possibilities. But right now Carl Hubbell would have to do a Complete comeback to give the majors two really High class left handers. And the other is the 40-year-old Robert Moses Grove. I it. Mob at use the equivalent of $<5,000 Philadelphia phone of who has vet to Demon Phi a Diephu athletic a Johnny Vander Moor startled the baseball world with successive no hit no run performances in 1938, but was a bust last trip. Vernon Gomez was mow form. Milnor come through Marcus Russo of the Yankees is a remarkable Prospect but Larry French of the cubs and Bob Weiland of the cardinals will Surprise if they do any better than they have in the past. Al Milnar of the indians find himself one of these Fine Days. Hut Thornton i be of the White sox Cliff Melton of the giants Howard Mills of the Browns. Fritz Ostermueller of the red sox Milburn Shoffner of the reds Vito Tami Dis and Al Hollingsworth of the dodgers Are on the mediocre Side. Other left handed hopefuls Are Lanier and Tom Sunkel of the red Birds and Macon of the Brooklyn. Clyde shoun of the cards is a Relief worker. The pirates gave Syracuse for a 8-foot 9-Inch Johnny gee. Strate he can Field a bunt in major league fashion. And this is As Good a time As any to relate that the belief that All left handers Are screw Halls is a fallacy. Possess natural advantage did you Ever Knoy a More sensible Hall player than Hubbell remember Eddie Plank lefty Gomez in t half As Daffy As he is painted. He a just a Good natured kid Basing a lot of fun and Choc Ful of class. Sure Rube Waddel Ysas left handed but bugs Raymond was right handed and he Yves As eccentric As the Rube. A left hander has a natural Ady anlage in pitching for several reasons. One is that the hitters see fewer left handers than right handers. And i recall when Charley Graham smart owner of the san Francisco club would hire any left hander who could get the Hall Over the plate. A a that a about All he has to remarked Graham. Why the shortage of left handers that a hard to figure out. Perhaps it is because mothers Are teaching the youngsters to throw As Well a seat and do everything else right handed. Sports in flume Mil Utz by Judson Bailey Amhi Ard press sports editor of baseballs Spring squirt. Lie has it is i Aud St. Louis Ltd animals Are about to 1 have a great to Xvi club race for last place in the Grapefruit league. Playing Tho Samp Brand of opponents the new York Yankees and each other the cardinals have managed to fake the lowest i Crouch in file cellar by losing seven oui of nine zanies Btu the reds have dropped six out of eight to make a Stout fight. Tiu it us it kit the Cleveland indians on the other hand have won foul and lost none of their exhibition zanies and the Detroit tigers Hae triumphed in six and dropped one. It just goes to show that the Spring struggles Ara All in fun or of least futility. In the Early innings of the Grapefruit grind a year ago the cardinals were set Ting a hot Pace for All the major league Chiba and the indians were not even threatened As cellar champions. Lot of k \ in kill i a k \ tilt a a lot of managers have been experimenting. Possibly As a re suit there seem to have been fewer Rookie a Spring sensations than in the past. Exceptions might he Belt Haas of the Brooklyn dodgers who stole Home once against the reds and hit two homers and a single i in another game and Mike Mccormick of the reds.

The National league All stars did win an exhibition game which More than 1.1,000 spectators contributed approximately 20.000 to the i finnish Relief fund to see. And i three substitutes did blend their talents to score the winning run in the ninth inning proved nothing i but in reality the game proved nothing except that the pitchers Are far ahead of the hatters in Spring raining arid that a lineup of sluggers is just another lineup when the fast ones and not the i hurlers Are snapping however the Victory was greeted gleefully by the senior circuit. For a Spring exhibition it a a corking Ball game with the big Surprise the inability of the Row on Row of siege guns in the Ameria an lineup to get much More than a loud foul they were held to five hits Rill Dickey and Frank Cros Etti getting two each and Jimmy Foxx one and none was better than a single the National leagues collected six flows.
