It was Cleveland's sixth victory over the Senators. Says: GoIPi Million Dollar Wlnnir THE PUNCH SHOT Many times it is neces- sary to hit i low shot. The two most frequent occasions when you must hit under an inter- vening tree limb, or when you arc hitting into t stiff wind. Select a longer, less- lofted club you would normally use for the re- quired distance. Choke down on the grip an inch or two, play the ball in the back half of your 43 ________ stance and position yout hands ahead at address. Put most of your weight left and leave it there throughout the swing. Move the clubhead back as low as possible, even lower than usual, and don't worry about wrist- cock. That'll happen nat- urally. Move quickly through the ball with good lower-body action, and don't turn your wrists over at impact. mo Will Host Tournament EDMONTON (CP) Senior Baseball Playoffs in the south- ern and northern zones will start July 19, Ron Hayter, presi- dent of the Alberta Baseball Association, announced Wednes- day.
