night that Wakefield had been op-
tioned to a Winston-Salem, N. C., ball
club subject to a 24-hour recall.
More About Wakefield
WE were down in the Union tap-
room discussing the trials and
trilulations of baseball players Sun-
day when one member of our party
uncorked the rumor that Dick Wake-
field was going to be sent to Mus-
kegon for .the rest of the season.
Naturally the rest of us were sur-
prised to hear the report because,
after all, baseball managers just don't
hand out $45,000 bonuses for Michi-
gan State League performers-but we
were not nearly so shocked as we
would have been a month ago.
Muskegon doesn't seem to be the
proper place for Wakefield but then
again, where are they going to send
him? Finishing the season in fourth
place ,means a lot to the Tigers and
Del Baker can't gamble with such an
uncertain fielder in the Majors; the
Bengal manager has asserted that
Wakefield isn't quite ready yet to
play a regular for Buffalo; and, ac-
cording to all reports, there's no room
for him on the Beaumont squad. The
only place where he will be able to
play regularly will be with Muskegon
or some other minor league club and
there the competition is too poor to
give Dick a real chance to learn to
play like a big leaguer.
AND SO everyone in Detroit is
wondering what Briggs and
Baker are going to do. The former
University slugger has yet to get a
hit in four trips to the plate and
his fielding today is a lot more like
Zeke Bonura's than like Terry
Moore's. There is no doubt, how-
ever, about the fact that he will
improve-the only question is
But the man least concerned about
the whole thing, we're told, is Wake-
field himself. No matter where he
plays this year and next he will still
be drawing down $5,000 per annum
and will "still have his comfortable
bonus in the bank. Wakefield can
hit and he knows it; and the future
should be able to take care of itself.
NOW that the current baseball
campaign is three-fifths over,
we've been wondering about how
many hurlers are going to wind up
the season with 20 victories. Last
year, you may remember, the only
ones to turn the trick were Bucky
Walters and Paul Derringer of the
Reds, Claude Passeau of the Cubs,
Detroit's Buck Newsom and Cleve-
land's Bobby Feller. This year Der-
ringer and Newsom are hopelessly
out of the running; Passeau, with
nine victories thus far, is almost as
badly off; Walters, with 11 triumphs,
is almost a 50-50 chance to repeat,
and with Feller, who has already won
19, the only question is whether or
not he will reach 30.
Incidentally, the only other
players to win 30 or more games
in recent times were Old Lefty
Grove in 1931 and Dizzy Dean in
OTHERS who may finish the sea-
son in the coveted 20-game cir-
cle are Whitlow Wyatt and Kirky
Higbe of the Dodgers, each of whom
has won 13; Elmer Riddle of Cin-
cinnati, who has a record of 11 vic-
tories and no 'defeats, and Lon
Warneke of the Cards, who has won
12 thus far in the campaign. Heber
Newsome of the Red Sox, Red Ruff-
ing of the Yankees and Thornton Lee
of the White Sox have each won 10
and have only an outside chance of

ACCORDING TO the latest re-
turns in the poll to select the
College All-Star team to meet the
Chicago Bears, Harmon is still No.

quarterbacks, Frutig is in fifth
place, Kromer has advanced to
23rd and Fritz has fallen to 27th.
