sylvania. At the end of the 1948
season, he was called up to play
with the Tigers. In 15 games, he
batted .361.
When new Tiger manager
Red Rolfe began in 1949, he sent
Joe to play with the Toledo Mud-
hens AAA ball club for more
practice. In 1950, he again was
sent up to play for Detroit, but
it wasn't until the following year
that he became the starting
catcher for the Tigers.
He played 102 games in 1951,
with a .260 batting average,
eight home runs and 37 RBIs.
Teammates Hal Newhouser,
Virgil Trucks, Johnny Groth,
Hoot Evers, George Kell and Vic
Wertz rounded out the team.
"The greatest thing about
that season was the thrill and
excitement of playing in my own
hometown, in front of my par-
ents and family," said Mr. Gins-

He remained with the Tigers
through the 1954 season. He
was traded to the Cleveland In-
dians, then Kansas City and
then to Baltimore, where he
played for five seasons. After
Baltimore, there were more
trades to Chicago and Boston.
He played until the age of 35.
When he returned home to
Detroit, he went into business
with his father. They opened a
bar near the old Dodge Main
plant in Hamtramck and called
it the Double G Bar. Later he
worked as a sales representative
for the Jack Daniels Distillery.
Today Joe Ginsberg, age 68,
resides with his wife, Donna, in
Punta Gorda Isles, Fla. He
plays golf with his old Tiger
teammate, Virgil Trucks. They
often reminisce about when
Ginsberg was the catcher for the
two no-hitters pitched by Trucks
in 1952.

Home security systems aren't
just for people with fancy jewels,
luxurious furs and expensive art
If you live alone, reside in an iso-
lated area, are away from home
frequently, or simply don't feel
safe, a security-alarm system
may be a good idea, advises one
metropolitan police department.
The purpose of any security
system is to alert you — or some-
one you choose — to possible
danger. The system's sensing de-
vice detects an intruder and sets
off a signaling device to alert the
occupant, the central security of-
fice or the police department.
There are several types of in-
truder-detector devices. These


• Magnetic contacts. These are
magnetically operated switches
on doors or windows that trigger
the alarm device when opened.
They send signals either by wire
or radio frequency and protect
entrance points only.
• Ultrasonic devices. These are
triggered when an intruder's mo-
tion disturbs high-pitched, in-
audible sound waves. These are

used only where air currents
can't set off the device.
• Infrared detectors. These
sense an intruder's body heat.
• Wireless alarms. These send
signals by radio frequency. They
are portable and need no wiring.
• Photoelectric eye. This device
sends a beam across the pro-
tected area and is triggered
when an intruder interrupts the
• Microwave detectors. They
transmit high-frequency radio
waves. Intruders change the
wave pattern and trigger the de-
vice. They cover a larger area
than ultrasonic devices and are
not affected by air currents.
• Proximity detectors. These
create a field around metal ob-
jects. An intruder approaching
the object affects the field and
triggers the device. These are
used for safes, vaults and met-
al cabinets.
• Closed-circuit TV cameras.
They watch action in a large area
and transmit the picture to a TV
monitor. The protected area
must be well lighted and the
monitors must be watched by
guards or a signaling device.
