Wednesday, blasting out a 15-3 vic-
tory as Virgil Trucks became the
first American League pitcher to
win 13 games.
The one-sided triumph boosted
the third-place White Sox to within
4% games of the Indians, who
played their second straight tie
with the Boston Red Sox.
Included in the 19 hit assault
of the World Champions were four
hits apiece by MInie Minoso and
Johnny Groth. Minoso's produc-
tion included .three oubles and

self before retiring in the seventh
inning because of the heat.
INDIANS 7, RED SOX 7
BOSTON (R) - Jimmy Piersall
dashed home with the tying run
on Harry Aggania's infield out in
the sixth inning as the Boston Red
Sox fought league-leading Cleve-
land to a second straight draw, 7-7,
Wednesday in a game halted by
rain after eight inniggs.
Earlier Wednesday, at 12:57
a.m. a 16-inning struggle was
called with the score 5-5 because
of the league curfew rule. Both
games will be completely replayed
later in the season.
Cleveland had just rallied to take
a 7-6 lead when Piersall singled to
center in the sixth and went to
third on. Ted Williams' double
poked to left field.
Ray Narleski, third Indian hurl-
er, came in to replace Dave Hos-
kins. He got Agganis to hit a slow
hopper but the Tribe had only a
play at first as Hiersall crossed

The idea, while not new, but this time seriously suggested, is to
have each major league team play every club in the rival circuit a
certain number of times during the season with the outcome of the
games to count in the team standings.
While at first glance, the plan sounds like a great way to in-
crease attendance figures, especially in cities with only one major
league team, this set-up would in the long run do more to harm our
national pastime than the short run benefits would be worth.
From our point of view, the only advantage to inter-league com-
petition is the opportunity it provides to fans in one-team cities
to see all the star ballplayers. While this in itself is a worthwhile ob-
jective, the accompanying effects of such a move would end baseball
as we know it today, and would start the game over from scratch.

New Record Book *. *
N THE FIRST PLACE, the 154-game schedule, upon which all rec-
ords since the turn of the century have been based, would have to
be abandoned. Assuming that each team played every other in the
opposite league four teams a season, that would mean a total of 32
inter-league games. Assuming that the intra-league competition is
cut from 22 to 18 meetings a year, that would mean a total of 126
contests per season. Combined this totals 158 games, four more
than the current schedules demand.
Secondly, and more important, inter-league competition would
destroy the traditional rivalry which has existed between the two
leagues since the inception of the American League in 1900. The
All-Star Game and the World Series have come to be regarded as
the only tests of league superiority and a system of inter-league com-
petition would destroy much of the color and spectacle of these two

It was a much needed win after

OOKING at the question from the standpoint of increased attend-
ance, we do not feel that this increase would be a permenant
situation. While certainly fans in Detroit and Cleveland would flock
to the ballpark in droves to see Brooklyn and the Giants, I doubt
if they would come to see Pitttsburgh any more than they would to
see a weak team in their own league.
While attendance would increase for games with pennant con-
tenders, I believe that it would be accompanied by a decrease in at-
tendance with teams of weaker calibre. And what would be the draw-
ing power when two eighth place teams meet?
The idea for inter-league competition appears to be mainly. a
pump priming device to bolster the turnstile count. But like all oth-
er new-fangled ideas to attract people, this new attraction would
soon die out and baseball attendance would be back at its normal
level. The best way to increase the fan interest is to give them some-
thing to be interested in. A pennant contender usually doesn't have
too much trouble attracting paying customers.
When it comes to giving the fans an opportunity to see all the
stars, it hardly seems practical to change the entire structure of
the Major Leagues just so fans in a dozen cities can watch different
faces. Millions of people around these United States live in communi-
ties where no major league baseball exists at all, but we don't see
club owners scheduling games for these neutral cities.
It hardly seems worthwhile to ruin the stability which baseball
has built for itself in over half a century just so a few million more
fans will be able to see all the major league players in action, and
j more realistically, just so the attendance figures.will take a sudden,
but temporary, jump.
