Baseball a la 1959

W AS THERE EVER a season, without rhyme or reason, like that
of '59,
When laughs abounded, with mystics confounded and thrills that
tingled the spine?
'Twas an unusual season when magnates tried squeezin' in things
that had never been done;
But of greater amazement than R. Macy's basement were the two
major victories they won:
First came another All Star (big bother!) to much of the nation's
chagrin;
It was for naught as both leagues just got one loss and one lonely
win..
Then last, but not least, "'Stead of famine, we feast!" cried the
players of mediocrity,
"For its been declared one more league has been snared in which
to display our inability."
The Tigers were blue when they won only two of their earliest
seventeen games;
Then J. Dykes appeared, a man to be feared, and the Tabbies went
on without shame.
One moment of silence for 14th inning violence that ruined the
best game:ever pitched,
'Cause Harvey the Kitten, (by bad luck was he smitten) and his
sterling no-hitter was ditched.
And how about. Case whose Yanks did 'bout face and finished in
third, not.in first;
As many have said and I'll give them their head, "We wish they had
finished much worst!"+
You know what C. Stengel (who hates the word Bengal) once said at
the start of the year-.
"If my boys take not it all, blame me for the stall,"-he's eating
those words and we cheer.
You may credit Bill Veeck with the Sox' pennant trek if you don't
follow the game very much;
But for our money Lopez is the honey who sweetens the Sox' every
touch.
However the Veeck made a pretty good wreck of the staleness that
permeated the League,
And with 1,000 canned eels and Aparicio's steals, Comiskey's
crowds were "beeg, real beeg."
Gordon (that's Joe), and Lane, a bad show, were certainly a quarrel-
some twosome;
But right after the day when the Indians gave way, they suddenly
became buddies bosom.
Dying to get back but on the wrong track was Leo "the Lippy"
'Durocher;
He thought that he had a- job in the bag but his hopes just were
not kosher.
A player disarmin' was Washington's Harmon who smote the ball
far and true;
What we can't figure is his pulling the trigger with a last name
like Killebrew!
But no Joe Hardy was he, and despite his great spree, the Senators
finished dead last;
Yet they shall return, with losses to burn, Killer and the rest of
his cast.
An amazing sight to see in flight'was two baseballs side by side,
But this actually occurred, against the Red Birds, when the Cubs
were in their usual stride.
The best laid plans of Giant fans went very much astray;
They built a new park, and not as a lark, for they expected the
Series their way.
But the Dodgers and Braves, riding the waves, and playing like
two teams that click,
Are fighting it out, in manner stout, and it will stay vacant in
Candlestick.
The season's not ended, the climax suspended, and the Series is still
in the fire;
But who shall forget the thrills, laughs and sweat; of these we will
never tire.

Warren Giles of the league to con-
fer with the opposing managers.
After a long discussion they or-
dered the cover off and the warm-
ups started. The game got under
way 47 minutes late.
Only 18,297 braved the threat of
rain and ignored the unusual com-
forts of home baseball television in
the Milwaukee area. The crowd
was about 32,000 below the stand-
ing room turnout that set a new
County Stadium record Sunday
when the Braves clinched a tie.
Among the onlookers was Al
Lopez, manager of the Chicago
White Sox, the American League
champions, who will meet the win-
ner. If the Dodgers win two
straight the series will start Thurs-
day at Chicago's Comiskey Park. If
it goes three games the opener will
be Friday.
The Dodgers got to Willey for a
run in the first when Neal singled
off Bobby Avila's glove behind sec-
ond base, took second on Wally
Moon's infield out and scored on
Larker's single to right.
Milwaukee forced manager Wal-
ter Alston to give starter McDevitt
a fast hook in the second. The lit-
tle lefty got one man out and then
walked Johnny Logan on four
pitches. Successive singles by Del
Crandall and Bill Bruton drove
home Logan with the tying run.
After McDevitt threw two balls
to Willey, Alston came from the
dugout, scratching his head and
touching his cap. He waved to the
bullpen for young Sherry.
Sherry ran the count on Willey
to 3-2 before the Milwaukee pitch-
er hit a ground ball to shortstop
Maury Wills, who Juggled it *for an
error, loading the bases.
Wills came 14p with Avila's sharp
grounder in time to force Willey
at second but Crandall scored on
the play. The run, of course, was
charged to McDevitt who had put
Crandall on base.'
Cubs Name
Grimrm Pilot
CHICAGO (MP-"I'm as happy
as- a kid," said 61-year-old Charlie
Grimm yesterday- as he succeeded
Bob Scheffing as manager of the
Chicago Cubs.
The resignation of Schefflng
after three years as, skipper and
appointment of Grimm was an-
nounced by club president Phil
Wrigley; The Cubs shared fifth
place yin the National League this
season for the second straight
year.
NFL STANDINGS'

Los Angeles tied the score at- 2-2
in the third. With one out, Neal
collected his second straight single.
Moon forced Neal, but Larker's
second single, off Avila's glove,
moved Moon to second. Gil Hodges'
single past Ed Mathews drove in
Moon.
Sherry gave up two singles in the
fourth but struck out Avila to end
the threat. He walked Joe Adcock
and allowed a single by pinch-hit-
ter Lee Maye in the fifth but made
Logan ground out to end the in-
ning. He retired nine in a row un-
til Lo'gan broke through for a two-
out single in the eighth.
In the ninth, e, fine catch by
center fielder Don Depeter, Snid-
er's sub, saved the day. Demet~er
went backto the barrier, almost
hidden in the fog, to drag down
Bruton's 390-foot leadoff drive.
The Dodgers completely bottled
up the power hitters of the Braves.

Mathews was hitless in four trips,
striking out once. Hank Aaron
walked twice, grounded out and
struck out. The best Crandall could
manage was two singles.
The Dodgers, Los Angeles vari-
ety, did better than the old Brook-
lyn brand ever did in the first
game of a playoff. The Brooks lost
in two straight to St. Louis in 1946
and dropped the first to the New
York Giants in 1951 before finally
being knocked out in the third
game by Bobby Thomson's "mir-
acle" homer.
Now they go home to a tumul-,
tuous greeting at the big Coliseum
with its 250-foot left field fence
where the final game or games will
be played today and tomorrow.
And they did it without their
best hitter, Duke Snider, who was
on the bench with a damaged knee.
He was available only for pinch
hitting duty if needed.
