Alston Hopes To Slow Down
Speedy Sox Baserunners

Highlights for Unrivaled
All-Weather Elegance

By The Associated Press



CHICAGO -Los Angeles man-
ager Walter Alston doesn't expect
:to slow the "Go-Go" Chicago
White Sox down to a walk, but
,neither does he believe the fleet-
,footed American League cham-
,pions will run his Dodgers into
,the ground.
- He is convinced he has the per-
,sonnel to cope with the White
,Soxs vaunted speed.
In catcher John Roseboro, the
Dodgers have just the man who
,can keep Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox,
Jim Landis and company honest,
,Alston believes.
Strong Arm
i "A 'lot of people don't realize
;that we have as good a throwing
icatcher as there is in baseball,"

...starts today

he said. "Roseboro is as good right
now as Roy Campanella ever was
as a thrower. I think the White
Sox are going to be surprised if
they think they can take liberties
with John's arm.
"I'm not in the least under-
estimating the White Sox' speed.
Our scouts have warned us there
is plenty of run in the Sox, and
if we don't keep them glued to the
bases it could be costly. But I
think my man Roseboro is capable
of handling the challenge."
Fast Also
"I'll concede that the White Sox
are faster than we are," he said,
"but, over-all, our team speed
compares favorably with theirs.
They're not going to have the big
running advantage that everyone
thinks. They steal bases, but they
also have a couple of slow runners.
The Dodgers don't have anybody
who can be called blocks on the
Alston also indicated Larry
Sherry, 'the young right-hander
who hurled so brilliantly in relief
in the Dodgers' first playoff game
victory over the Braves Sunday,
would start the second game
against the. White Sax.
His current plans are for Don
Drysdale, his ace, to open in Los
Angeles Sunday with a left-
hander, probably Johnny Podres,
working the fourth game.

One report was that he resigned

the club was being run. Officials
said yesterday that Gehringer
simply was "not needed any more
since we have a strong baseball;
man in Bill DeWitt at the top:'
The shakeup came at a regular
meting of the board of directors.
Some members of the board had
been negotiating with DeWitt for
several months.
One of the majority stockhold-
ers, Kenyon Brown, described the
action as "the perfectly logical,
normal thing to do."
Asked what brought it about so
suddenly, Brown replied:
"The desire to have a winning
baseball team."
New Coach
The Tigers also announced the
hiring of ex-Chicago White Sox'
star Luke Appling to replace Tom-,
my Henrich as first base coach
for the 1960 season.
Appling, who played for Tiger
manager Jimmy Dykes at Chicago
from 1933-1946, is best remem-

bered for his ability to foul off
pitches until he got the pitch he

retirement as an active player in

Ex 'M' Coach, Fisher, Relates Tale
Of Famous 1919 Black Sox Scandal

Archie Moore on Sept. 21, 1955,
confirmed that he had been work-
ing out in a gymnasium at Ocala,
Fla., and had trimmed off about
20 pounds.
"Sure I've had the gloves on
hitting the bag in a gymnasium,
but I haven't sparred," Marcianb
told Mel Derrick, Miami Herald
boxing writer. "If I were making
serious moves for a comeback, I'd
be sparring, wouldn't I?"

CHICAGO - Dick Tiger, the

ended at three bouts, was unable

And when a 29-8 hurler looks as
poorly as Cicotte did, sore arm or
no, there rightfully could be room
for suspicion. The Reds took the
opener, 9-1.
More Legitimate
The second game had a more
legitimate appearance, although
the Sox, with Claude "Lefty" Wil-
liams, lost once more, 4-2. 1
Then came Fisher's one and only
Series showing.
"As far as I was concerned the
fix certainly wasn't on then," says
Fisher, looking back on his 3-0 de-'
He was only partially right. The
fix was on without any question. It
was Just that Fisher's, mound op-
ponent, Dickie Kerr, would have
nothing to do with Abe Attell and
the rest of the hoodlums.
"Kerr threw a three-hitter
against us and one of those hits
wasn't of the solidest variety," the
72-year old Fisher relates. "I got
it, just a little trickler down the
third-base line."
Trickery Backfires
It's with a sly chuckle that Fish-
er, former Michigan baseball coach
for 38 years, tells how his own
trickery cost him a run in the
"I had slippery elm hidden in
my glove that I used to rub on the
ball," he reveals. "It would make
one side rough and the pitch would
usually sink at fast ball speed.
"Well, one batter hit an easy
shot back to me. I reared back to
throw to A~rst and-whoosh-the
elm made the ball shoot up over
the first baseman's head."
Fisher saw no more action in the
Series as his mates went on to

Discovered Later
It wasn't until near the end, of
the following season that all the
facts came to light and one of the
greatest teams ever assembled be-
came reduced to a skeleton with-
out its -crooked stars.
The 1920 season was also Fish-
er's last as he chose college ball
over the pros. This decision made
him none too popular with base-
ball commissioner Judge Kenesaw
M. Landis, who even blacklisted
him for a time.
