Plans To Move Washington Senators
To Los Angeles Still in Talking Stage

Organization Man Tighe Signs One-Year
Pact To Succeed Harris as Tiger Pilot

LOS ANGELES (IP)-The pros-
pect of the Washington baseball
club moving to Los Angeles re-
mained in the transcontinental
talking stage yesterday.
Whether it will progress any
further is anyone's guess.
The day's developments:
Calvin Griffith, president of the
American League Senators, can-
celled a meeting scheduled in Los
Angeles Thursday with County
Board of Supervisors.
Griffith, accounts from Wash-
ington said, has to get his own
clubhouse in order before contem-
plating a shift. At least one mem-

ber of his board, H. Gabriel Mur-
phy, who owns 30 per cent of the
I club's stock, said he will go to
court if necessary to block a trans-
fer.
One-Man Gang
Supervisor Kenneth Hahn, some-
thing of a one-man gang in trying
to land a major league franchise
for Los Angeles, talked long dis-
tance to Griffith. Hahn said Grf-
fith promised to come to Los1
Angeles with his attorney "in the
middle of next week."
That would be around Oct. 24-25
and time is running' out for any
action this year. The deadline, for

a major league team to draft minor
league territory expires Oct. 31.
In Chicago, Phil K. Wrigley, who
owns the Chicago Cubs and the
Los Angeles Angels of the Pacific
Coast League, said the local fran-
chise is not for sale and "nobody
has ever mentioned buying it."
Hahn, however, said he called
Wrigley earlier Wednesday and
quoted the magnate as saying he
would not stand in the way of
major league ball coming to his
Los Angeles territory.
Also from Chicago, American
League President Will Harridge
said he was awaiting further word

DETROIT (A) - Jack Tighe,
balding and 43, yesterday was
made manager of the surging De-
troit Tigers, a job he "wanted so
bad I'd have taken it on six weeks'
contract."

thinks of himself as "fiery and
aggressive," signed a one-year con-
tract to succeed Stanley R.
"Bucky" Harris with the fifth-
place American League baseball
club.
Although no salary was revealed,
Tighe was estimated to have
signed for between $20,000 and
$25,000, a considerable cut from
Harris' $40,000 salary.
A veteran of almost 20 years
in the Detroit organization, Tighe
spent 13 seasons managing minor
league clubs. He was boosted to
Tiger first base and pitching
coach two years ago.
Walter O. (Spike) Briggs, gen-
eral manager since an 11-man
syndicate bought the Tigers last
month for 5/2 million dollars,
said the new board "felt Tighe
could lead the club into contention
for a pennant. We needed someone
to bat somebody over the head."
Mild-Mannered
Harris, a mild-mannered man
with 29 years of major league
managerial experience, often was
criticized for his lack of get-up-
and-go. He took a job as assistant
to the vice president of the Boston
Red Sox following his resignation
Sept. 27.
Tighe spoke freely of such plans
as curfews at night and calisthen-
ics in the morning.
"The first thing I expect of a
player is a little bit more effort."
he said.

Mantle, Snider
Top Sluggers
NEW YORK (?P)-Mickey Mantle,
following in the tradition of the
former New York Yankee distance-
swingers, has added a second slug-
ging championship to his already
imposing list of American League
batting laurels.
The 24-year-old switch-hitting
outfielder posted the highest slug-
ging percentage in the majors in
1956 at .705, figures compiled by
The Associated Press showed yes-
terday.
Mantle, who also won the
league's batting, home runs and
runs batted in titles, collected 376
total bases in 533 at bat'.
The National League produced a
much closer struggle with Brook-
lyn's Duke Snider edging Joe Ad-
cock of Milwaukee, .598 to .597.
Snider found the range for 324
total bases in 542 trips. Adcock ac-
cumulated 271 total bases in 454
at bats.
