MUOH as we regret the colli-
sion in Washington last Monday
night in which "Hoot" Evers and Ed-
die Mayo of the Tigers were in-
jured, nevertheless we must admit
that it came as no surprise. For al-
though the accident may have been
entirely unavoidable, it's highly pro-
bable that smart ball playing would
have saved both players from the
mishap.
Too often in the many games
we have seen the Tigers play this
season there have been close calls
between runners chasing after fly
balls. And in most instances Mayo
was involved in the play. Colli-
sions can be avoided if the team
has a field captain to call for one
player to make the catch.
So far, however, Detroit has been
very lax in this respect, and several
fielders have been chasing after pop-
ups when one man should be desig-
nated to make the play. Last year
Mayo was the Tigers' "holler man"
and his booming voice could be heard
all over the field in directing the play
in this respect. This year no one
seems to be taking the responsibili-
ty.
All this leads us to believe that
the fault lies with Manager Steve
O'Neill himself. There is no deny-
ing that the Detroit club, has not
been playing smart ball to date,
and designation of an infield gen-
eral should have been one of O'-
Neill's first concerns. However, this
lapse seems to be only one of many.
We are not the first to say we
think the Tigers may be in need
of a new manager. For the past few
Major League

weeks O'Neill has been the object of
a rising amount of criticism against
his direction of the team. One need
nly to sit in the stands of Briggs
Stadium and hear the remarks of
loyal fans to realize that O'Neill
has been making too many mistakes
of late, and that his popularity is
on the wane.
TO CITE a few examples of the
causes of this criticism one need
only mention the New York series in
Detroit two weeks ago. The Bengals
dropped the opener to the Yanks and
desperately needed a victory in the
final contest. Hal Newhouser was
ready to pitch and by general con-
census wlis considered the logical
choice. But much as he needed to
win that game, O'Neill started "Stub-
by" Overmire and kept Prince Hal
ftr a night game against the lowly
White Sox.
Overmire got into trouble in the
fourth inning though leading by
one run and O'Neill called in Virgil
Trucks, noted for his blazing fast-
ball. The Yanks have always mur-
dered fastball pitching, especially
in hot weather. And the afternoon
was very miarm, and Trucks was
especially fast. lie was literally
murdered, greeted by a double and
a pair of home rus. New York
tallied eight runs in the inning
and coasted to an easy win.
Even on the base paths the Tigers
have looked very foolish at times
this sprmng, and this too can be at-
tributed airectly to bad manage-
ment. In the same New York series
the Yanks pulled a freak triple play
that still has the scribes shaking their
h( ads in wonderment. The play
stands out not as a tribute to Yankee
fielding but rather a travesty of Ti-
ger base-running, and one of those
things that can usually only hap-
pen in Brooklyn.
Besides his faulty handling of
moundsmen O'Neill has shown an
obsession for sending right-handed
batters against left-handed pitchers
and vice versa, which is a smart
policy if not carried to extremes.
Several times he has allowed this
factor to weigh against his bet-
ter judgement, and good hitters
have been kept on the bench be-
cause of their hitting from the
wrong side of the plate.
Prime example of this occurred
in the Memorial Day double-header
in St. Louis. Jimmy Outlaw got three
hits in uhe opener against left-hand-
er Sam Zoldak, but he was replaced
in the night-cap by Dick Wakefield
becase right-hander Dennie Gale-
house was on the mound for the
Browns. Wakefield was in a slump at
the time and his inability to hit cost
the Tigers the game.
Detroit fans are noted as being
the most loyal in the league as
witnessed by the record number of
cash customers who poured through
the Briggs Stadium turnstiles last
year. The fans pay to see a winner,
however. The majority will stick
by their squad when it is plagued
by injuries and a batting slump.
But they won't stand for faulty
management.
Jimmy Dykes resignation as head
man of the White Sox has caused
much speculation. 'Tiger fans have
always liked the jovial, cigar-smoking
Dykes and probably would be only
too eager to roll out the welcome
rat if he should come to Detroit.

(Continued fromn Page 1)
two singles to lead the Wolverines
in the batting department. It marked
the fourth straight game that the
Michigan center fielder has hit for
three bases.
In the third inning, singles by
Nussbaumer, Swanson and a double'
by Kell coupled with an error put the
Wolverines out in front by two runs.
The Broncos came back in their

half of the third with a single tally
on a walk, a sacrifice and the in-
jury to Robinson at second, Tom Kru-
pa scoring from second while the
Michigan shortstop was out cold on
the ground.
In the sixth Michigan added ano-
ther run to its total. Jimmy Brown
playing short for the injured Robin-
son, was hit by relief hurler Biddle
and moved to second when Weisen-
berger singled. Brown was out at
third when Roserna tried to sacri-
Tic e.
Double Steal Worked
While Bob Chappuiu was striking
out Weisenberger and Roserna worked
a double steal. Walks to Dom Tomasi
and Elmer Swanson forced in a run,
before Biddle struck out Bowman to
end the threat.
In the eighth Rosema walked, stole
second and came in to score on
Tomasi's single to right. In the last
half of the eighth Western put to-
gether three straight singles for their
final run.
Cliff Wise will e on the mound
tomorow as the Wolverines seek their
second straight victory over the No-
tre Dame nine in the last game of the
season.

Pirates' Guild
Strike Averted
PITTSBURGH, June 7-(P)-The
threatened strike by the Pittsburgh
Pirates for recognition of the Ameri-
can Baseball Guild was averted to-
night less than an hour before the
players were scheduled to take the
field against the New York Giants.
The terse announcement, "noj
strike," was made by Bob Rice, field
director of the Pirates and head of
their farm system, who had been call-
ed into a closed meeting by the
players.
Rice asserted he did not go in as
representative of the management
"but just because they asked for me."
