How Pitching Star Sandy Koufax
Became Earned Run Leader
BY HAROLD U. RIBALOW
(Copyright, 1963, JTA, Inc.)
Lots of honors will come to
Sandy Koufax during the win-
ter season as fans savor his ac-
complishments and talk of his
World Series achievements. But
Sandy owes his remarkable
reputation in 1963 due to his
steady, brilliant all-season effort.
Now that the official records
are in, let's look at them.
To begin with, Koufax led the
major leagues, and, of course,
his own National League, in
yielding the fewest number of
runs earned in total number of
innings pitched. He posted a 1.88
mark, the lowest in the National
League since Howie Pollett of
the St. Louis Cardinals,- finished
with 1.75 in 1943. In winning
the earned run title, Koufax did
it for the second year in a row.
Nobody has done this since
Bucky Walters managed it in
1939 and 1940 with the Cin-
Just_ to show you how well,
actually how remarkably, Sandy
pitched, here are a few com-
parisons. He gave up 68 runs in
311 innings. He won 25 games
and pitched 11 shutouts. Juan
Marichal of the Giants who also
won 25 games and had an earn-
ed run average of 2.41 (fourth
in the league), gave up 102
runs of which 86 were earned.
Koufax gave up 65 earned runs.
It was murder to get a run off
him, earned or unearned. Don
Drysdale, another stalwart, who
won 19 games, pitched 315 in-
nings, yielded 114 runs of which
93 were earned and had an
earned run record of 2.66.
And what about Whitey Ford,
the lefthander who was twice
beaten by Sandy in the World
Series? Ford stood seventh in
earned runs in the American
League with 2.74. He pitched
269 innings, gave up only 94
runs, of which 82 were earned.
Respectable, but not anywhere
close to Sandy's mark of 65
earned runs in 311 innings.
And, naturally, Sandy Koufax
stood alone as a strike out ar-

Continuing its Jewish histori-
cal publications for young peo-
ple, Kind erbuch Publishers
(1123 B'way, NY10), has issued
a second volume in the series
under the title "Our People
Through the Middle Ages."
Prepared for young readers,
and for classroom use — with
appended questions to each
chapter for students—this vol-
ume begins with the "Age of
Humanism" devoted to the story
of the Jews in Italy and Ger-
many. It continues to cover the
events that transpired in Hol-
land. Bohemia, Poland, Turkey,
England, the Germany of our
time, and the numerous events
that affected our people in all

ume refer to the humiliations
to which Jews were subject.

of the Jews, to the hopes and

sulted in the rise of false
The social classes that devel-
oped in Jewry, the emergence
of the Cabbala, the darkness
that often enveloped Jews and
the bright stars that emerged
from their midst are dealt with.
Life in the ghetto is describ-
ed to indicate the manner in
which Jews lived within walls
that separated them from the
rest of the population in the
lands in which they often had
resided for many centuries.
Spinoza's activities as well as
the legend of the fashioning of
a Golem by Rabbi Judah, Po-
land, Jewish - Polish relations
and the cultural attainments
during centuries of insecurity,
the submissions under the Ger-
mans and scores of other his-
toric occurrences are developed
in this volume which, in spite
of the brevity into which the
many subjects are consigned,
nevertheless tells an effective
story of Jewish experiences.
Of special interest is the
chapter devoted to Yiddish
and its emergence as our peo-
