delphia Athletics yesterday fired
veteran coaches Al Simmons and

decision the club ever has made
against the wishes of Connie
The handwriting on the wall
seemed pretty plain for all base-
ball to read: The 86-year-old own-

solute boss of the American League
club he helped found.
DISMISSAL of the two coaches,
a complete surprise to them and
to Philadelphia fans, was an-
nounced as having been ordered
by the club's Board of Directors.
The directors are Mack's three
sons, Earle, Roy and Connie, Jr.;
Benjamin Macfarland, grandson
of. the late John Shibe who
founded the club with Connie,

rectors action was- "for the best
interests of the club. We decided
a change in our coaching setup
would prove beneficial to the
team. So we made the changes."

SIMMONS, at Hot Springs,
Ark., said the action was a "com-
plete surprise" to him. And Big Al
retorted that the Athletics, to
climb higher in the American
League standings, need "some new

Earle Mack has been assistant
manager to his father for near-

flatly that when (and if) he
decides to retire as manager,

for some terrible mistakes that
were made this year," Simmons

THE SQUAD held their final

on having another light drill this
afternoon upon arrival at the

It will be the fourth appear-

Michigan. In 1946 he scored
one touchdown in the 14-14 tie
of that season and the follow-
