Hubbell Vs.

Murderers Row' Is Lineup For Series Opener



Cardinals Are
Conceded Little
Chance To Rally
Yankees Are Expected To
Annex The World Title
Within Six Games
Opener Is Sept. 30
Giants Depend On Hurling
For Victory While Yanks
Rely On Batting Power
It will be the great left arm of
Carl Hubbell vs. Murderers Row of
the New York Yankees when the
Giants and McCarthymen clash Sept.
30 in the opener of the 1936 World
Series, the first "subway series" since
At the present writing Bill Terry's
club is out in front of the field in
the National League race by four and
one-half games and should not be
headed. Few of the experts give
the Cardinals a chance to overhaul
the Gotham nine and fewer rate the
Chicago Cubs as the team to win
the pennant.
Yanks Favored
The Ruppert Rifles who have
slugged their way through the Amer-
ican League season, without giving
quarter to anyone at any time will
probably go into the series the fa-
vorite. The Yanks as a whole are
hitting better than .300 and with the
"Iron Man," Lou Gehrig, and Bill
Dickey leading the fence busting of-
fense are expected to take the world
title in no more than six games.
Manager Terry will be depending
practically solely ,upon his hurlers
to carry the team to victory. Such
is usually the case of the National
League entry in the annual fall
classic while the American League
teams apparently possess the greater
power at the plate.
Hubbell is the one ace of the Giant
mound staff while in a supporting
role are Gu'mbert, Fitzsimmons, Ga-
bler, Coffman and Smith. Terry and
Ott lead the hitting parade and are
always feared when at the plate with
men on the sacks.
Ruffing May Open
Old Charley Ruffing may get the
call to start the opener for the Yanks
or even one of two other old timers,
"Bump" Hadley or Monte Pearson,
both of whom came to the Yanks in
last winter's trading. Malone and
Broaca are also. bound to see service
on the hill while the role that Lefty
Gomez will play cannot be predicted.
The latter has had a poor year but
is closing in great style and may find
McCarthy sending him to the hill in
one of the first two games.
The series will open in the Na-
tional League champion's park and
the first two games will, be played
there. The next three will be in
Yankee Stadium and if any more are
needed the teams will be back to the
first diamond, expected to be the
Polo Grounds.
Such is the seating capacity of
these two parks that five games on
a sellout basis will result in a new
record for receipts. The listed seat-
ing capacity for Yankee Stadium is
63,300 and of the Polo Grounds 47,400.
New York was treated to its last
nickel series 13 years ago and at that
time the Yanks defeated the Giants
four games to two.

Carl Hubbell (left) is the main hope of Manager Bill Terry in the
forthcoming World Series if the New York Giants are to take the
measure of the Yankees for the world championship. Little chance
is given the St. Louis Cardinals to beat out the Giants for the National
League pennant, but should they do so practically the entire pitching
burden will rest on Dizzy Dean, the famous and sometimes eccentric
right hander of the Frisch club.


Burt Smith Shows Promise With
Fine SandlotPitching Record

Although only known to Michigan
sport fans as a hockey player, Burt
Smith, who is also quite a pitcher,
was, up to this past season, known
to Detroit baseball fans as the "John-
ny Allen" of the sandlots.
Learning how to master his
temper, improving his curve ball
under the guidance of Coach Ray
Fisher, and being coached by bon
Ridler, well known sandlot catcher
who won All-American grid honors
while at Michigan State, have been
the main reasons why Burt has
chalked up 14 wins and three losses
for his best season during his three
years on the sandlots.
Redeems Ineligibility
A mid-semester ineligibility, which
Smith redeemed at summer school,
kept him from taking the mound for1
Michigan and deprived him of his,
Varsity letter in hockey as well as
competing in the crucial series
againstMinnesota's sextet in the
Colesium last year.
Glen Gray Garage, a team which
was considered the "dark horse" at
the start of the Triple A race, be-
came the leading threat for cham-
pionship honors after Smith won
consecutive victories over American
Bud, Karp Coal, Dr. Dix, Biggs, and
Plymouth before his support cracked
and "threw" the game to Tivoli, '35
champs who were beaten in the
tourney finals by Altweiser. Smith set
a new Triple A strikeout record in the
American Bud tilt when he fanned 18
These hurling feats caused Urban
"Red" Faber, former star pitcher for
the Chicago White Sox now serving
in the capacity of a scout, to take a
trip to Detroit to especially see Burt
in action. After watching Burt beat
Biggs and Karp Coal, Faber ap-
proached Ridler with a contract
which Smith later declined in order
to continue his studies at Michigan.
Pat Deary, scout for the Boston Red
Sox, as well as Wish Egan, Tiger

"ivory hunter," have also kept their
eye on Smith.
Played With De Soto
Playing with Chrysler De Soto in
the Industrial League, Burt has' won
nine and lost two. His five game
winning streak during which he al-
lowed a total of 17 hits or an aver-
age of 3.2 hits per game enabled the
De Soto team to enter the playoffs.
In 1934, his first year on the sand-
lots, Smith won seven and lost six
while playing with Borden Creamery
of Class A. During the 1935 season
Burt won five and lost 4 with Paris
Cleaners in the newly established
Triple A league. Smith was picked
as an alternate pitcher to accompany
Tivoli to the national tournament at
Cleveland. According to statistics
Smith has averaged 5.6 hits per game
for each year and 10.3 strikeouts for
the last three seasons.

won in the semi-final trials and also
won the National Intercollegiate title
in the event. In the Randall Island
finals he was running well until he
hit the last hurdle and fell, losing
all chance of making the team. At
the time he was running fourth, but
moving up fast and only inches out
of third place.
Stone Falls Short
Walt Stone, distance star, finished
fourth in the final trial for entries in
the 3,000-meter steeplechase, missing
the boat for Berlin by only one posi-
tion: He had qualified for the finals
by taking third in the semi-finals and
a fourth in the A.A.U. meet. Later
in the summer he proved his mettle
before several thousand New York
track fans by winning in splendid
fashion the steeplechase in the World
Labor Meet.
Bill Watson, only a sophomore, was
third in the Olympic semi-final trials
in the shot put with a heave of 48
fee, 81/8 inches and thus qualified for
the finals but, even so, did not enter.
Brelsford, Etchells Place
Two other Michigan men placed in
the national intercollegiates, Clayton
Brelsford taking fifth in the 1,500-
meters and Widmer Etchells a fifth
in the discus.
While not as impressive a list of
performances as those by athletes
from some other schools, notably Ohio
State, these marks speak well for the
success of this year's Michigan track
Ohio State loses several of its stars
while Stoller, Osgood, Brelsford and
Watson will all be back here. Stone
also has another year but as yet it
is not known whether he is return-
ing this semester. Of course, the suc-
cess of the Wolverines in the Big Ten
meets may depend largely upon the
outcome of Jesse Owens' activities.
If the Buckeye star is able to compete
as an amateur it means trouble, and
plenty of it, for the all of Ohio's op-

Williams Will Lead
Quest For Second

Straight Ball Title
A fiery, hard-hitting catcher who
did not play in a single game last
season will captain the 1937 Mich-
igan baseball team in its campaign
for a second successive Big Ten
Kimmy Williams, regular backstop
of the 1934 and 1935 seasons, is the
individual in question and in Wil-
liams Michigan .should have one of
its greatest leaders. Kimmy suf-
fered a sudden illness last February
that forced him to withdraw from
school for the semester and after
many months is now reported on
the road to recovery.
He will not come back to Ann Arbor
until the second semester this year,
remaining at his home in Katonah,
N. Y., to gain back some of the
many pounds he lost while ill.
The loss of Williams was a hard
blow to last season's team but his
shoes were ably filled ehind the
plate by John Jablonski who grad-
uated last June.
Charles Moning, a selectman at
Plymouth, Mass., was named "official
skunk catcher," in December, 1935,
owing to his expertness in the profes-
sion and was presented with a com-
plete skunk-catching outfit by Police
Chief Russell Dearborn.
