Fisher Named Coach of the Year

VIRGIL "FIRE" TRUCKS, ace hurler for the Chicago White Sox,
gets a rubdown from Sox Trainer Eddie Froelich, in a dressing
room at Comiskey Park in Chicago. Trucks, who has won 13 and
lost 4 this season, gives much of the credit for the good show-
ing to Froelich. Virgil says the trainer cautions him to pace him-
self before the start of every game.

'M' Baseball
Mentor Led
Nine to Title,
Ray Fisher, who led his Michi-
gan team to the National Colle-
giate Baseball Championship, has
been named "Coach of the Year"
by his contemporaries.
Fisher had his greatest season
in 32 at Michigan when he turned
out a team that won 21 out of 30
games, tied Illinois for the Big Ten
title, and then went West to Oma-
ha to capture the national crown
from an overconfident University
of Texas outfit.
* . *
FISHER, who will receive his
award during next January's
NCAA meetings at Cincinnati, is
the third coach to earn such na-
tional recognition. Previous win-
ners were Jack Baer of the Uni-
versity of Oklahoma and Jack
Barry of Holy Cross.
Voting on the award was done
by mail and the results were an-
nounced by Paul Amen, who in
addition. to being Army's base-
ball :coach, is also president of
the College Baseball Coaches
Association.
Fisher is currently in Freder-
ickstown, New Brunswick, working
with that city's semi-pro team. He
has been active in summer base-
ball leagues in New England and
the Northeast for many years.

WASHINGTON-(P)-Ted Wil-
liams was released from the Ma-
rine Corps this morning and will
go to Boston to rejoin the Red
Sox, but he's a bit afraid that he
might hurt the club if he gets back
into the lineup too soon.
There's sound reason for Ted's
alarm, whether it's genuine or not.
He hasn't swung a bat in well over
a year.
* *,*
BUT, WILLIAMS said, he's eag-
er to play ball, and as soon as pos-
sible.
That could be tonight when

Stars Open Drills
With Three Absent
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - (R) -
Three key players were missing
yesterday as the College All-Stars
opened formal practices for their
game with the Detroit Lions in
Soldier Field at Chicago Aug. 14.
Those missing were Fred Brun-
ney, Ohio State defensive half-
back; Billy Reynolds, Pittsburgh
halfback, and Tom Catlin, Okla-
homa center.
CATLIN checked in Saturday,
passed his physical examination
and received equipment.
Yesterday he left camp after
breakfast. Fullback Buck Mc-
Phail, Catlin's teammate at
Oklahoma, said Catlin told him
he had to report to the Cleve-
land Browns' training camp at
Hiram (Ohio) College.

Dizzy Dean, Al Simmons Join
Hall of Fame at Coo perstown

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - (P) -
Dizzy Dean and Al Simmons, two
of baseball's former greats, were
inducted formally into the Hall
of Fame yesterday when their
plaques were dedicated by George
Trautman, president of the Na-
tional Association of Minor
Leagues, in ceremonies held in
front of the National Baseball Hall
of Fame and Museum.
They were the 63rd and 64th to
be so honored.

DEAN, colorful ace of the St.
Louis Cardinals' Gas House Gang
in the early 30s, beamed good will
as he took his accustomed place
at a microphone to acknowledge
the honors.
"It's the greatest honor I
ever received," he said. "I want
to thank the good Lord for giv-
ing me a good right arm, a
strong back and a weak mind."
And he paid a glowing tribute
to his former Cardinal and Chica-
go Cub Aiates who "stopped them
line drives and got some runs for
me.". .
SIMMONS, former Philadelphia
Athletics great, likewise spoke
about "the greatest honor ever
paid me" and then turned to heap
praise on his old boss, Connie
Mack, former Athletics' manager.
"I want to pay my respects to
the man who was responsible for
my being here today," Simmons
said.
"I also want to say a word about
my home town, a pretty darn good
town. In case you don't know it's
Milwaukee. I always thought it
was a major league city."

Standings

Boston opens a home stand
against the Chicago White Sox.
Chances are, however, Williams
won't be used for a while even as
a pinch-hitter. He isn't exactly in
top playing condition.
THE MARINE Corps reported
that Williams' separation from ac-
tive duty took place at '7:30 a.m.
(CST) at, the Naval Gun Factory
here.
A couple of signatures on the
dotted line and one of the great-
est hitters in modern times will
be free for active duty on the
baseball diamond.
Doctors at the Naval Hospital in
suburban Bethesda, Md., gave Ted
a complete bill of health yesterday
after he had undergone treatment
for nearly a month for an ear and
nose ailment he picked up as a
jet pilot in Korea.
* * *
WILLIAMS wasn't due for deac-
tivation until Oct. 1, but he re-
quested an earlier separation date
in view of the doctors' decision
that he is of no further use as a
jet pilot. His request was accepted.
Williams said he didn't think
his ailment would affect his
baseball capacities. "I guess I
can't hear as well as I used to,
but I don't think that'll bother
my ball playing," he said.
As to when he gets back in the
lineup, well, "It's up to Joe," Wil-
liams said. Joe, of course, is Joe
Cronin, general manager of the
Red Sox, currently the hottest
team in the American League.
The Sox have been playing
championship ball ever since it was
announced earlier this month that
Williams would be released by Aug.
1. It could be that news was thq
vitamin pill that stimulated the
Red Sox into a real pennant push.
