LUCKY HOOKS-When Dave (Boo) Ferriss first came to the Boston
Red Sox he was given a few hooks in the corner for his "locker." Now
after winning eight consccutive games Ferriss still insists on keeping
those hooks in the corner despite repeated offe:s of lockers. lie
claims that these hooks brought himngood luck,
yHIANKI MANT11O, Daily Sports Editor
DAVE FERRISS, rookie sensation of the Boston Red Sox, and one of the
brightest pitching prospects to come up this year, again made the
sports headlines the other day when he registered his eighth victory in
eight starts against the Philadelphia Athletics, 5-2.
Although Ferriss gave up 14 hits ,he spaced them nicely and managed
to keep his unblemished record intact, and from the looks of things, the
Philadelphia ball club is the only one that has given the rookie much
trouble this year, and they seem more determined to beat him every time
that Ferriss chucks against them. In his first start of the year, Ferriss oddly
enough pitched against the Athletics, and he didn't have much control
at the beginning of the game, He threw about 14 balls with only a few
strikes sandwiched in between to the first four Mack batters. Luckily,
Connie Mack's boys were determined to swing and try for hits, and a pop-
up and double play saved Ferriss,
From then on, Dave shut them out, but after the game Connie
Mack mused that if his players had waited him out and would have
received one more walk, the rookie would have been yanked, and he
might have been jittery in his next start as a result, thus losing his
Manager Joe Cronin of the Red Sox said that lie would never pitch
Ferriss out of turn to try and draw additional fazes or to pull a game out of
the fire, as "he's too nice a guy and too good a prospect to do tricks with."
FERRISS does not specialize in strikeouts, but makes good use of a decept-
ive curve and a live fast ball, which makes it hard to hit a long ball
off him. Sometimes this works to his disadvantage, because if Tony
Cuccinello's drive had been a little longer, May 20, it would have been
caught and Dave could have chalked up a no-hit game.
Since no rookies are accorded the privilege of having lockers in the
Red Sox club house, the trainer pointed out a nail in the wall to Ferriss
when he arrived and told him to stow his gear. Today Dave could have
his pick of lockers in the club house, but he now obstinately refuses one.
Most of the players could not understand this since it is a distinct
honor, but the rookie claims that lie is superstitious. Trainer Win
Green one day 'iointed to two empty lockers that had previously been
occupied by Joe iiowm an and Rex Cecil, and tried to induce Ferriss to
take one of them, but he nodded his head no-the reason? Cecil is now
at Louisville' . hwman at Cinminatti,
A short time ago, Dave had dinner with his big boss, owner Toni Yawk-
key, in celebration of his sixth triumph, and the next morning lie told one
of his teammates that it was almost unbelievable, for it was only three
months ago that Dave was stationed at Randolph Field, Texas. He was
then a member of a football team in his camp; now the footballers are
writing fan letters to hnim.
Ferriss was not sure that he wanted to play baseball t his year when
asthma forced his release frori the service, but finally decided to give it
a whirl, for which the Red Sox executives. as well as their partisans, arec
very thankful. And to show that his success is not merely luck, Ferriss
usually pra tices 20 miIniuitCes every day on his considered weaknesses.
