DETROIT (A') - The Detroit
Tigers fired Manager Bill Norman
yesterday less than five minutes
after the team lost its 15th game
in 1 starts.
Jimmy Dykes, long-time major
league player, manager and coach,
was named to succeed Norman.
The 62-year-old Dykes, who has,
managed the Chicago White Sox,
Philadelphia Athletics, Baltimore
Orioles and Cincinnati Redlegs will
take over before tomorrow's dou-
bleheader here against the New
"No Criticism but.. ."
"I have no criticism of Norman
except that he couldn't pick the
club up," said General Manager
Ferrell, named general manager
just before spring training began
when John McHale left to join the
Milwaukee Braves, said the deci-
sion to fire Norman was his alone.
"I feel another manager can
jell this club,".he explained. "The
potential of the Detroit club has
not been realized. Dykes is an
experienced big league manager. I
always liked his style. He's ag-
gressive and has a big league back-
McHale said much the same
thing when Jack Tighe was fired,
and Norman named to the post
last June 10. in Boston when the
Tigers were in last place.
The Tigers brought Norman out
.of the minor leagues to take over
the club, and it wound up fifth, a'
half-game out of the first division.
Have Won Two
This season, the Tigers have ex-
perienced one of the most disas-
trous starts in the: club's 59-year
history. They lost six in a .row,
won a game, lost six more and
won their second game.
Yesterday's 15-3 defeat by the,
Washington Senators was the.
third straight in Detroit's latest
Ferrell said yesterday's outcome
was not the sole reason for Nor-
man's firing, but he made it plain
the lopsided score triggered his
decision. He said he talked with
Dykes, who has been a coach for
the Pittsburgh Pirates, by tele-
phone today shortly after the
Pittsburgh-St. Louis game at Pitts-
Norman, a 48-year-old veteran.:
of 30 minor league campaigns as
a - player, manager, coach and.
scout before he got his first shot
at a big league managerial job in
Detroit, was stunned.
The big fellow was near tears in
his tiny office just off the players'
quarters, in the Detroit clubhouse.
"I didn't quit,' gentlemen," he
said, staring at the floor. "I was
fired. I guess I'll go back home.
They'd better pay me for the rest
of the season, though."
Locked the Doors
Norman had locked the club-
house doors after this, the worst
defeat and the sloppiest perform-
ance of the season for the team
that some sports writers predicted
would give the Yankees a run for
the American League pennant.
Ferrell came to Norman's quar-
ters almost immediately and told
him: "Bill, I have a tough job to
Thus Norman bowed out after
only 326 days as a big league man-
Sixth Manager since 1952
Dykes becomes the sixth Detroit
manager in less than seven sea-
sons. Red Rolfe was fired midway
through the 1952 campaign and
since then Fred Hutchinson, Bucky
Harris, Tighe and Norman have
come and gone.
Dykes was an infielder on Connie
Mack's great Philadelphia Athletic
teams of the 1920s. He was man-
ager of the White Sox from 1934
until he was fired in May 1946.

DETROIT (P)-Bill Norman was
fired yesterday as manager of the
Detroit Tigers because the players
weren't performing as well as the
front office thought they should.
"I -felt another manager could
jell the club," said general man-
ager Rick. Ferrell after he fired
Norman and replaced him with
"I have no criticism of Norman--
he's a friend of mine-except that
he couldn't pick the club up. I
hope another manager can.
"It was just that the potential
hadn't been realized. We feel we
have a better ball club than we've
seen. For one thing our pitching
staff hasn't been up to par.
"We just have- a better team-
than the record shows. Every ball
player has hustled on every play.
Their morale isn't down."
Ferrell, new as general manager,,
said it was his decision alone to
let Norman loose.
"The owners didn't make the
decision," Ferrell said. "I did.
Only Dykes Considered
"No one but Dykes was con-
sidered as a replacement. I wanted,
aot experienced manager who was
aggressive and had a big league
When Norman became Tiger
manager last June, he had no
experience running a team in the
majors. He played a few games in
the big leagues in the early 1930s
and coached two seasons with the
St. Louis Browns. The rest of his
career was confined to the minors.
DETROIT (A)-The tailspinning
Detroit Tigers yesterday swapped,
southpaw pitcher Billy Hoeft to
the Boston Red Sox for utility
infielder Ted Lepcio and pitcher
While Detroit obviously is des-
perate to come up with a winning
combination, Hoeft, a 20-game
winner in 1956, has spent much of
the last two seasons in the man-
agerial doghouse. His, lifetime rec-
ord is 74-78.
Lepclo, who has played-every
infield position except first base,
has a big league batting average
of .247. But in Detroit's Briggs
Stadium he had a lusty .412 aver-
age over a six-game stretch last
season and won an extra-inning
game with a home run off Hoeft.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (R) - Tomy
Lee, an English .colt owned by
wealthy Texan Fred Turner, Jr.,
nosed out Sword Dancer after a
scorching stretch battle in the
Kentucky Derby yesterday.
Then the huge crowd, estimated
at. some 100,000 had to sweat out
a foul claim for 17 minutes before
the stewards flashed the red offi-
cial sign on the. infield odds board.
Tomy Lee is only the second
foreign-bred horse in history to!
win: the race. It was one of theI
most dramatic finishes ever seen
in America's most glamorous horse
Seventeen horses started in the
$163,750 race, second richest of all
Derbies, Christopher T. Chenery's
First Landing, the champion two-
year-old of 1958, finished third
behind Tomy Lee and the Brook-
meade Stable's Sword Dancer.
There was two and one quarter,
lengths between the second and
third horses, while Mrs. Jacques
Braunstein's Royal Orbit was
fourth, another length away.
Jockey Bill Boland, who won
the 1950 Derby with Middleground,
lodged two foul claims against
Tomy Lee's jockey was Willie
Shoemaker, who was involved in
the most recent Derby rhubarb
two years ago. In the 1957 Derby
Wee Willie misjudged the finish
line aboard British-bred ,Gallant
Man, and stood up momentarily
in the saddle.
This time, however, Shoemaker,
'a 25-year-old national champion
rider from El Paso, Tex., was on
the winning side. He had won the
1955 Derby when Swaps, a Cali-
fornia colt, upset Nashua,
