CLEVELAND - (JfP) - pleve-

from the baseball wars yesterday

city's history.

just exactly 25 years to the day
Stengel, then a New York Giant,
hit a home run that gave his club
a 1 to 0 triumph over the Yan-
kees in the 1923 World Series.
His salary under the two year
pact was not disclosed. The new
manager of the Yankees-the
fifth for the club in less than

three seasons-is 57 years old
and was born in Kansas City.
He managed Brooklyn for three
years, 1934 and 1936, but received
greater fame for not managing the
club in 1937 although drawing his
full salary. Both New York clubs
now are headed by former Brook-
lyn pilots, Leo Durocher coming
across the bridge to guide the New
York Giants this summer.

DURING HIS playing career

Stengel was an outfielder and his
batting average for the 14 years
was .284.
In addition to his ability as a
teacher of young players, Sten-
gel also is known as a clown. It
was he who once lifted his cap
to an umpire at home plate and
a captive sparrow flew out.
Another time, when umpires re-
fused to call a game because of
darkness, he wigwagged for a re-
lief pitcher with a flash light.

probably be a deciding factor in

Injuries, however, may pre-

Those who 'may see little or no
