WHAT'S IT WORTH?
. i,,n ,,A,
With the national league pennant race heading into the final
week, it seems almost a certainty that the New York Giants will fin-
ish the season in first place. And one of the first questions that base-
ball followers will ask is "How does a team that finishes in fifth
place, 35 games out of first in 1953, capture the flag the following
year?"
Having followed the Giants day in, day out for the past three
months, I have arrived at my answer to the question. The addition of
Johnny Antonelli to the New Yorkers' pitching staff has meant a
great deal. The return to his 1952 form by reliefer Hoyt Wilhelm plus
the emergence of Mary Grissom as a bullpen ace has made a big
difference in the fortunes of this year's league leaders. The excellent
handling of the club by Manager Leo Durocher and the added bench
strength given the Giants by owner Horace Stoneham also has ac-
counted for a large part of the improvement. But if someone aske
me to pick out the one major difference between this and last year's
Giants, there would be no doubt in my mind that the answer would
t have to be . .. Willie Mays.
* s # s
Frisch Say's ..
So much praise has been heaped on the "Say-Hey kid" that it's
difficult to find new ways of describing him. Perhaps a statement
made by Frankie Frisch, (Hall of Famer, one of the greatest ball play-
ers to put on a glove, and a major league manager for a number of
years) best describes Mays. The Fordham Flash said,, "He (Mays)
fIplays by instinct. He doesn't have to think. I have seen him make
play after play on the spur of the moment that no man could have
thought out. He just reacted-and reacted right. He wasn't lucky.
You can't do that day after day and be lucky. Fellows like MayA
come along every 20 years or so, then they lose the pattern for a
while."
Mays' record is only part of the story, and an impressive recod
it is. In this his first full season in the Majors, he has more than
forty homers, over 100 runs knocked in, and is battling Duke Snider
for the National League batting crown with an average around the
.340 mark. In addition he leads the league in triples with 12 and is
up among the leaders in runs scored. Defensively he is regarded by
many as the top centerfielder in the Majors and by some as one of
the best of all-time, this despite the fact that he has been around
for less than two full years. His arm is said to be the strongest in
both leagues by just about everybody.

Psychological Lift .
But just as important to the Giants as is his fine record, is the
psychological and spiritual lift that he gives to his teammates. It's
hard to pin-point a quality such as this by the use of statistics, but
they can give some indication. When Mays came to the New Yorkers
in 1951, they were in seventh place and playing terrible baseball. The
'.ehWn 'isii8-m
Isaga of what happened the rest of the season is baseball history.
When he left the Giants to go in the service the following year, they
were in first place by 2%' games. A week later they were out of first
and didn't come close again through 1952 and 1953.
Mays returned this year and the Giants are well on their way to
the flag. Despite all the publicity he receives, his teammates to a.
man like him and Durocher adores him. He has the qualities that
make people want to be near him and he can lift you out of the dol-
drums anytime. He is the main reason that the New York Giants are
looking forward to playing in Cleveland's Municipal Stadium next
week.
