SISTER,
YOU'RE THE
SKIPPER
IN
O0U'WESTER

NEW YORK (p)-George "Bird-
ie" Tebbetts, who instilled a bit
of his own inspirational hustle'
into the Cincinnati Redlegs, yes-
terday was named National League
manager-of-the-year for 1956.
The aggressive Redlegs' skipper
was an overwhelming choice of
the 207 members of the Baseball
Writers Association of America
who participated in the annual
Associated Press poll. Tebbetts re-
ceived 160 votes.
Two Games Back
The former catcher kept Cincin-
nati in the thick of National
League pennant contention until
the next-to-last day of the season.
As it was, the Redlegs finished
third-two games behind the flag-
winning Brooklyn Dodgers.
Fred Haney, who took over the
Milwaukee helm from Charley
Grimm in mid-June and also just
missed winning the pennant, was
second in the balloting with 34
votes.
Under his patient tutelage, the
Braves moved to the front only to
stumble in the final days as the
Dodgers passed them.
Brooklyn's Walter Alston, the
National League manager-of-the-
year in 1955, received six votes for
his performance this season.
Although the Dodgers eventually
won out, his demise in the voting
was reflected in his team being
a prohibitive favorite in the pre-
season evaluations.
Five Votes For Bragan
Bobby Bragan, P i t t s b u r g h's
rookie pilot, drew five votes as his
team finished seventh after a
whirlwind start. Freddie Hutchin-
son of St. Louis and Philadelphia's
Mayo Smith picked up one vote
each. The Cards wound up fourth
and the Phils fifth.
The affable Tebbetts had his
team in first place by one and one-
half games at the All-Star break.
Four days later the Redlegs fell
to second, but they stayed in con-
tention right down to the wire.
It was the first time since 1944
that Cincinnati ended up in the
first division.
Durocher May
Manage Again
NEW YORK (MP)-ank Green-
berg disclosed he had talked with
Leo Durocher about the possibility
of managing the Cleveland In-
dians next year.
TheTribergeneral manager
added he intends to meet with
Durocher, now a television execu-
tive, some time next week to re-
sume discussions.
"Durocher told me he was in-
terested in returning to baseball,"
Greenberg said. "That came as
a surprise to me since I had un-
derstood he was not interested in
baseball any more.
"I asked him whether I'd be
wasting my time talking to him
about the Cleveland managing job
and he said he'd be happy to sit
down and talk with me about it."
Greenberg emphasized that he
made no concrete offer to the for-
mer manager of the New York
Giants and said whether he would
offer the job to Leo next week de-
pends on what Leo has to say.

I-D Necessary
The Athletic Administration has
announced that students will
again be required to enter through
the Student Gates and show their
I-D cards for the Minnesota
game this Saturday.
Blue athletic cards will be re-
quired from those using spouse
tickets.
This policy will be continued
throughout the football season.

Rangers Win
NEW YORK (P)-A seldom seen
penalty shot, converted with beau-
tiful ease by Danny Lewicki in
the first period, provided the edge
for New York last night in a 3-2
victory over the champion Mon-
treal Canadiens, hoisting the
Rangers into a tie for the Na-
tional Hockey League lead with
idle Detroit.
