AMERICAN LEAGUE

NEW YORK-(AP)-If Monte Ir-
vin of the New York Giants, can
maintain his National League bat-
ting supremacy he will become
only the second right-handed
swinger in over a decade to win
the league's batting championship.
Brooklyn's Jackie Robinson has
been the only right hitter to cap-
ture the crown in the past 10 sea-
sons. Robinson led the league in
1949 with .342.
IRVIN, WHO is hitting .339,
took over the top spot from St.
Louis' Red Schoendienst, who fell
to second with .333.
Irvin suffered only a slight
sprain and no fracture of his
right ankle in the game with
the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday.
6.M1' Grid Star
Ties for Lead
In GolfMeet
Tad Stanford, first-string end
on the Michigan football team last
fall, was among the four players
,who tied for the early lead yes-
terday in the local qualifying trials
for the 1953 Michigan Open Golf
Tournament.
Stanford, a Midland amateur,
booked a one over par 73. This was
matched by two other amateurs,
Rolf Westgard of Bay City, and
Charles Hegenauer of Saginaw,
and Pro Barry Laur, of Lapeer.
STANFORD, who will be a sen-
ior this fall and figures very prom-
inently in Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan's football plans, has already
won two letters in football. In ad-
dition he was a member of the
Michigan golf team which finished
second to Purdue in the Big Ten
last season.
Stanford missed spring foot-
ball practice in order to perform
with Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's
golf team, and in view of the new
rule returning football to one-
platoon, it is not "known just
how he wil fit into the Michigan
lineup.
Stanford played at left end last
year, filling in for Lowell Perry
when the star pass-catcher was
hurt. When Perry returned to the
lineup, Stanford was moved to
right end, where he performed
well on offense. He yielded his posi-
tion on defense to big Gene Knut-
son.
As a sophomore his greatest
game was played against Minne-
sota. He caught a 21-yard touch-
down pass from Don ZanFagna to
play his part in the Wolverines'
54-27 conquest of the Gophers.

MICKEY VERNON of the Wash-
ington Senators is starting to pull
away from the rest of the pack
in the American League hitting
race. The slender first baseman,
in quest of his second batting
crown, boosted his average six
points to .331.
Cleveland's Al Rosen, fourth
last week, moved into second
with a .320 mark as George Kell
of the Boston Red Sox skidded
to third at .319.
Orestes (Minnie) Minoso of the
Chicago White Sox slipped from
third to fourth with .316.

EDDIE MATHEWS of the Mil-
waukee Braves continues to top
the National League home run
derby with 36 and Brooklyn's Roy
Campanella still is the runs bat-
ted in pace-setter with 104.
Gus Zernial of the A's hit
four home runs during the week
to displace Rosen as the Ameri-
can League leader in that de-
partment with 29. Rosen has
the most RBI's, 92.
Pitching laurels in the National
League go to Milwaukee's Lew
Burdette with a 9-2. Ed Lopat of
the Yanks ranks as the American
League pitching leader with an
11-2.
Tigers May Drop
Back into Cellar
ST. LOUIS - (/P) - The Amer-
ican League basement menaced
the Detroit Tigers again today as
they prepared to open a four-game
series with the last-place St. Louis
Browns.
Arriving after an Eastern swing
that ended in three straight losses
at New York and three defeats
and a tie at Philadelphia, the
Tigers were but two and a half
games out of the cellar spot they
bequeathed to the Browns July 24.
So far this season, the Browns
have been one of the toughest
clubs in the league for Detroit.
The Tigers have won only four of
ten games with St. Louis.
Two southpaws, Billy Hoeft
and Ted Gray, were named by
Manager Fred Hutchinson to go
againstthe Brownies in today's
twi-night double-header.
Hoeft will face rookie Don Lar-
sen, and Gray either Bob Cain or
Dick Littlefield, both one-time De-
troit lefties.
The Tigers return to Detroit aft-
er the St.Louis series to start a
stand against the Chicago White
Sox with a Friday night contest.

the Polo Grounds for a three-
game series with New York.
"THE GIANTS got nothing
left," Dressen told reporters in
Cincinnati last week. "The Giants
is dead!"
It could be that Dressen was
right. The Giants surely looked{
as if they were dying, losing 121

Manager Leo Durocher hasn't,
replied to Dressen's crack con-I
cerning the Giants but Chuck's re-
marks were posted in the club
house for all to see.
The Dodgers, are flying high as
a result of nine victories in 13
games in the west.
