A new York the red sox Cleveland and Detroit Are still in the league and it will take a lot of Ball playing to push them out of the first division a Dykes pointed out. A Titi be satisfied if we eau break in there the club is in better shape generally than it was a year ago at this Tim but the misfortune of Monty Sra on. Who los a leg when blood poisoning followed a gunshot wound and absence of Jackie Hayes recuperating from a knee operation leave a couple of Tough spots to fill. Pitchers Are the no. I worry but the catching situation is no less a problem. Replacing Sewell Job Dykes is having trouble replacing Luke Sewell the regular receiver who was sold to Brooklyn. George Henna who caught 57 games last season and hit .248 appears to have first Call. Norman Schlueter Mike Tresh and Ken is i Vest of Are after the other two berths with Schlueter the less Likely to succeed. Sil vestry came up from St. Paul and a been doing a Nice Job in training. Veterans John Whitehead. Thornton Lee Bill Dietrich and John Rogney none of whom won More than 13 games last year will get most of the starting pitching assignments. Vie Frazier up from St. Paul where he won 17 and dropped 7, will be lost for some time As a result of a skill fracture received when he i was hit by a thrown Ball. Dietrich turned up with an jailing Arm year and went Ion the voluntary retirement list but looks like the goods again. Ageing Ted Lyons will Start a fair share of games but he need3 lots of rest Between assignment.

Hayes will replace Mcnair if and when his knee heals. Dykes the Handy Man himself and either Al Bejma or Mere Connors will handle the Utility roles. Bejma will probably stay. As Connors can be let out for another year. The Outfield is set with Hank Steinbacher taking care of the right Field Garden Mike Kreevich in Center and rip Radcliff in left. Steinbacher hit .331 last year to Lead the club and beat out Gerald Walker who along with John Rosenthal will he carried a Utility men. Rupert Thompson will most Likely he dropped.
