With minor league baseball own-'
ers in session at Toronto, mid-win-
I ter trading in players is becoming
[brisk. The biggest of the deals
I accomplished so far involves the
Detroit Tigers, who are seeking re-
inforcement after a rather disas-
trous reason in the last American
league campaign, and the Toronto
club of the International circuit.
Dale Alexander, sensational first
baseman, and Johnny Prudhomme,
star pitcher, are the chief figures
in the deal. Detroit is believed to
have parted with $100,000 and
three players to obtain these two
' f roisngyoungsters. Just what
players President Navin of the De-
troit club will send to the Leafs
are not, yet known although first
baseman Sweeney, who was a mild
sensation in the first part of the
season this spring, will be one of
them with two pitchers thrown in.

been reported as a New York Yan-

the International league, the 24-
year-old right hander has twirled
two no-hit games. Alexander is a
college man, graduating from Mil-
ligan college, Tennessee, where he
was a three sport man, starring in
football, basketball and baseball.
