back in a Tiger uniform.
McCoy, signed as a free agent by
the Philadeluhat Athletics six years
ago, has been released unconditional-
ly by manager Connie Mack and De-
troit is ready to give him a tryout at
second base.
Manager Steve O'Neill of the Tigers
said the world champions would con-
tact McCoy immediately.
McCoy, one of 90 players taken
from the Tigers in 1940 in Landis'1
famed free agency deal, signed im-
mediately with the A's for a bonus
of $45,000. He played with Phila-
delphia in 1940 and 1941 before en-
tering the Navy.t
When Bennie returned this spring
and failed to make the grade with{

"I signed McCoy as a free agent.

leasing him unconditionally so hel

NEW YORK, March 30 -(A')-
In a fitting climax to Madison
Square Garden's greatest basket-
ball season, the country's out-
t--nding court stars staged a
thrilling game tonight for the ben-
efit of the Tribune Fresh Air Fund
with the Eastern All-Stars eking
out a 60-59 victory over the West-
ern All-Stars.
Dave Strack of Michigan, play-
ing guard for the West team,
(hopped in four field goals and a
foul shot to score nine points for
his squad. Kenny Sailors of Wy-
oming, with 16, and Bob Kurland,
Oklahoma A & M, with 13, were
high for the losers.
His victory came quickly after Halo
Hirose brought the Buckeyes the 100-
yard sprint title and Jim Consilman
had taken second place in the 200-
yard breaststroke. The furlong was
captured by Charley Keating of Cin-
cinnati, who was timed in 2:26.2, a
touch better than Consilman.
Keating and Consilman fought
each other right from the gun in the
200-yard breaststroke, but the fa-
vorite from Ohio State couldn't match
Keating's drive in the home stretch.
