The earthquake shocks recorded
yesterday were probably the result of
the terrific mauling the White Sox
handed a baseball. In one inning they
knocked three honie rims and. scored
five runs, as many tallies as they usu

season's total of four-ply swats.
A close outfield fence helped the
long smashes, but Ping Bodie .caught
hold of one that would have been a
homer on any big league field if
Ping could keep nis feet long enough
