Eight Pitchers Hit Midpoint Mark

NEW YORK (P) - Eight big
league pitchers are at least half-
way home on the 20-game victory
express, but some of them will
have to reverse their recent rocky
course to reach their destination.
Bud Daley of Kansas City is the
majors' top winner with 12 al-
though Ernie Broglio, a 10-game
victor for the St. Louis Cardinals,
has been gathering the most mo-
mentum lately.
Southern Pro

Others with a chance to win
20 are 11-game winners Vernon
Law of Pittsburgh, Sam Jones of
San Francisco and Larry Jackson
of St. Louis and 10-game winners
Bob Friend of Pittsburgh, Lew
Burdette of Milwaukee and Jim
Perry of Cleveland.
Broglio, who did not win his
first game until the season was a
month old, has won eight since
June 11, including his last five. He

has lost four. The 24-year-old
right-hander had a 7-12 record
last season.
Daley, credited with 40 per cent
of Kansas City's 30 triumphs, has
defeated Detroit, the Chicago
White Sox and Boston three times
each, Cleveland twice and the New
York Yankees once. He has drop-
ped five decisions. The cagy left-
hander may become the first Kan-
sas City pitcher ever to win 20

Raee-Mixed Boxing Event

Orleans boxing promoter is trying
to stage the city's first racially
mixed boxing match in more than
60 years.
Promoter Lou Messina has pre-
sented the Louisiana State Boxing
Commission with a contract call-
ing for a 10-round non-title bout
in August between lightweight
champion Joe Brown, a Houston,
Tex., Negro, and Ray Portilla of
New York.
Messina and the commission are
I awaiting a decision from the office

of Louisiana Attorney General
Jack P. F. Gremillion on the bout.
Commission chairman Ernest
Hessler, Jr., said he expected a
ruling within a' few days.
Portilla recently scored an 8-
round TKO over Brown.
The U.S. Supreme Court last
year ruled Louisiana's statute
against racially mixed athletic
events was unconstitutional. A
permanent injunction also was is-
sued restraining the state boxing
commission from prohibiting bouts
between white and Negro fighters.

ponent of expansion, favors a
nine-team' league.
Hank Greenberg of Chicago, a
member of the AL's three-man ex-
pansion committee, is convinced
there aren't enough big league
prospects to stock four new teams.
A showdown is expected when the
committees of the two leagues
meet shortly.
Favor Inter-League Play
It is known that both sides
favor inter-league play on a limit-
ed scale. That is, each club would
play one series, perhaps two, in
the other league. That, of course,
probably would necessitate an in-
crease in the number of games
played by each club, currently 154.
It's a cinch no club would agree
to giving up any of its home dates
with long time rivals.
When the big leagues expand,
New York is reasonably certain to
re-join the National League, un-
less the majors pull a surprise by
welcoming the Continental League
into their midst as a third major.
Other leading applicants for ma-
jor league status include Houston,
Toronto and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
All three are members of the Con-
tinental League. However, another
group-the Houston Buffs-head-
ed by ex-major league star Marty
Marion, is seeking to crash the
majors and may be drafted by the
National if it goes to 10 clubs.
May Move to Los Angeles
That would leave Toronto and
Minneapolis-St. Paul as the lead-
ing American League candidates.
There also is a possibility that the
American League might move into
Los Angeles. That would need ap-
proval from Walter O'Malley, head
of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
O'Malley is known to favor an
American League entry in Los An-
geles only when the Dodgers have
their own park in Chavez Ravine.
The park, however, is not expected
to be ready until 1962, at the ear-
Blueprints of the proposed new
stadium in New York calls for the
completion of the park sometime
in 1962. That wouldn't be a major
problem, however, since the new
entry in New York probably would
play either in Yankee Stadium or
at the Polo Grounds until the new
stadium is ready.
Under baseball law, if the parties
concerned fail to come to an
agreement, the matter is handed
over to an arbitration committee
and its decision is final. This could
not be the case involving the Con-
tinental League since the embryo
circuit is not under the umbrella
of organized baseball and there-
fore not subject to the major-
minor agreement.
