CLLGE BASEBALL COACHES are moaning "raid" in agonized
tnsonce again as word comes from Ohio State University that
the Buck's star shortstop, Bob Weygandt has signed a contract to
play with the Pittsburgh Pirates' Waterloo farm club this summer.
Ohio Coach Floyd Stahl who had a great deal of grief last
season in leading his favored Buckeyes to a first division berth
in the Western Conference race is the guy who got stung this
time and he isn't taking the matter lying down.
Stahl, ignoring the too obvious fact that Ohio's baseball title
hopes for next season slipped several pegs with Weygandt's departure,
nas cried out piously that big league signing of college players will
ruin interest in college baseball.
Maybe the Buckeye mentor has a point there but I'm inclined
to believe that he's about twenty years too late in attempting to
save the popularity of college baseball.
The college game today just hasn't got the brand of appeal
necessary to keep the average fan away from the radio account of
the doings of his favorite major league team, and it is a truly rare
college ball player who can draw an extra-large audience to a game
in which he is appearing.
LOOKING AT THE SITUATION from the ball player's viewpoint
Weygandt is 26 and seeking a career in a sport which has "youth"
as its prime requisite to success.
The average Western Conference baseball team is approxi-
mately of Class B professional caliber. A majority of college teams
are no better than a Class C or D pro outfit although there are a
few who could probably make things rough for a Class A team.
But whether a college club is of A or D professional caliber is
less important than the fact that the caliber of a +-,am's competition
Thus a good college player cannot improve himself by playing
against gradually improving competition each year. He must rely
on his coach's advice for improvement and while there are some
fine college coaches around the country nobody has invented a
good substitute for actual experience yet.
If a good college player seeking a baseball career succumbs to
the lure of the majors' gold after a couple of years of playing against
a bunch of guys who are out for some good clean exercise before
settling down to an engineering job in Panama, can you blame him?
I can't but Stahl whose own job depends on keeping a firm grip
on all the good ball players he can coral does. It's all in the point
of view, I guess.

and could not be reached imme-
diately for comment as to whether
he would recognize the Charles-

CHICAGO-(A')-The St. Louis
Cardinals captured the rubber tilt
of their three-game series with
the Chicago Cubs here yesterday
when they won a 10-inning bat-
tle, 2 to 1, before a ladies day
crowd of 26,802.
Al Schoendienst singled with
one out in the tenth, took third
on another single by Marty Mar-
ion, and tallied;while Stan Musial
forced Marion. But Musial still
had to make a great play to pre-
serve the victory. Roy Smalley
singled in the Cub half, Mickey
Owen sacrificed and Bob Ramaz-
zotti lined a pinch single to right
that sent Smalley galloping home.
However, Musial's perfect throw
nailed him on a close play.
