BROOKLYN (P)-Dodger Gen-
eral Manager E. J. "Buzzie" Bavasi
yesterday accused the reporters
traveling with the Brooklyn base-
ball club with "grossly exaggerat-
ing" what he called a routine club-
house session between Manager
Walter Alston and the players.
At the same, time he expressed
complete confidence in Alston and
said he would back the manager
to the limit in his real or fancied
rift with the players.
No Basis
"I am firmly convinced the fel-
lows writing these so-called dis-
sension stories have no basis for
their conclusions," Bavasi said.

"f doubt very much whether the
players actually- told them the
things that are being printed."
Bavasi was referring to quotes
attributed to unidentified Dodger
players blasting Alston for calling
them "chokeup guys" at a recent
in-between-games meeting in Mil-
waukee. Some of the player quotes
also questioned Alston's ability as
a manager.
Players Assure Bavasi
"I just got through talking with
two of our players on the tele-
phone," Bavasi said, "and both
assured me the entire incident has
been exaggsrated way out of pro-
One of the players wad Jackie
Robinson, who said there was no
formal meeting in the first place.
He explained that Alston was
just walking through the room
talking mostly to himself and, at
the same time, pointing out to the
club as a whole what he thought
it was doing wrong. He did not

criticize anybody in particular but
told them off as a whole."
Alston Denies
In Cincinnati, where the Dodgers
played the Redlegs last night, Al-
ston said he was sure he did not

call the team "gutless and choke-
up players."
"I gave them heck at the meet-
ing, though," he added.
"But, it was just a meeting that
you'll find taking place in every
clubhouse at least a half dozen
times a year. I've never criticized
any player publicly. If I did then
I feel I should be criticized."
