delphia and Brooklyn in the National.
Chuck Dressen. new Dodger Manager, put himself on the spot
bv picking Brooklyn to win the pennant. Casey Stengel, boss of
the world champion New York Yankees, also said he expected
to win again.
Paid Richards, taking over as Chicago White Sox manager,
wouldn't pick anvbodv to beat his club which finished sixth last
\ ear And Luke Sewell of Cincinnati also shied from predictions.
Bucky Harris ot \V ashingion anu
Stengel leaned toward Cleveland as
“The Team to Beat" but A1 Lopez,
new Cleveland boss, thought he
would have to beat the Yanks to
Frisch Sees Five Clul>s
Frankie Frisch of the Chicago
Cubs and Billy Southworth of the
Boston Braves figured the National
a five-club scramble with St. Louis
and Boston also involved. Most of
the others predicted a Phil-Dodger
Giant struggle.
The comments include:
American League
Casey Stengel. New York—“I
'lave good players and we have the
right attitude. They like winning
and I vcpect to win again. Cleve
land looks very good to me and
should give us the most trouble. I
Haven't seen the Red Sox but I
know they'll be tough."
Steve O'Neill, Boston—“I think
we have a good chance. It will be a
close three-club race among Cleve
land. New York, and Boston with ^
Detroit having a chance if they can i
get pitching to make up for the
joss of Houtteman. I hope we will
do better on the road.”
Lopez Gunning for Yanks
A1 Lopez, Cleveland “I'm not
too well acquainted with the league
after being away three years but I
think if we beat the Yankees we
.an win the pennant. We were six
games out of first place last year
and the difference was the 14-8
edge the Yanks had over us.”
National League
Eddie Sawyer, Philadelphia—“it
looks now as though the Phillies,
Dodgers and Giants will fight it
out. Brooklyn has the best ball
club, man for man but the pitch
ing is uncertain.
The Lip Says Dodgers
Leo Durocher, New York- "I
never predict but we had a bood
ball club last year and have been
.strengthened. Noble, Wilson, Get
tel and improved Kramer make us
stronger. Brooklyn is the club to
Chuck Dressen, Brooklyn—“I
think we’re going to win the pen
nant simply because we're the best
team. I'm not worried about my
pitching. It's better than some
think. The Giants should give us the
most competition. The Phillies also J
should be .tough. |
Blue Team Wins
In Beaver Tilt
CORVALLIS, Ore. — <JP> The
Whites beat the Blues 14-9 Satur
day in tlie first spring football
practice game at Oregon State Col
Bud Woodward went over for one
touchdown for the winners. Dave
Mann, up from the rooks, scored
the other.
A 93-yard punt return by Bill
Anderson, another ex-rook, gave
the Blues their only touchdown.
The losers picked up three more
points when Clarence Womack
.blocked a punt for a safety.
3 Webfoots
From Hurts
Coach Jim Aiken's Webfoots
went through a light workout Mon
day night, emphasizing blocking
and passing. Three men were on the
injured list although none were ser
iously hurt, and all should be back
in action soon.
In Saturday's scrimmage, full
back Ron Lyman sustained a
shoulder injury, while freshman
guard Howard Allman hurt his
knee. Fast-stepping Tom Edwards
has not scrimmaged at his halfback
post for the past week due to a
bruised toe.
Aiken hopes to gain valuable
knowledge from movies taken of
Saturday’s Hayward field ^scrim
mage. Norm Van Brocklin was also
stationed in the press box to check
plays for ineffective work.
Coach Aiken mentioned backs
Ted Anderson, who scored three
touchdowns. Tom Novikoff and
Don Sloan as having run well Satur
day. Sloan showed himself to be a
passing threat as he rifled a 30
yard southpaw toss for a touch
down off a fake end run.
Less spectacular, but equally im
portant to next year's hopes were
good performances by Left Tackle
Mike Sikorra, and Right Guard Em
mett Williams.
Aiken says he hopes to have at
the end of spring practice a nucleus
on which to add promising fresh
men wbo may come to Oregon. He
intends to stand pat with T-forma
tion plans in favor of any prospec
tive single wing because of the cur
rently favorable passing quarter
back situation. He has fast develop
ing sophomores Hal Dunham, regu
lar at the end last season, and Norm
Fenton, 1948 frosh signal-caller and
late of Aberdeen JC.
