CINCY REDS OBTAIN BOTTOMLEY FROM ST. LOUIS CARDS Carroll and Crabtree Are Given in Exchange Owner Sidney Weil and Branch Rickey Agree on Im portant Player Swap After AH- Night Conference; No Money Involved in Trade, Report. By United press CINCINNATI. 0., Dec. 17.—The Cincinnati Reds today obtained first baseman Jim Bottcmley from the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for pitcher Owen Carroll and outfielder Estel Crabtree, according to tele phone announcement by President Sidney Weil of the Reds from New Weil said he made the deal with Branch Rickey, vice-president and „ a " agC !i °i , th *u^ Cardinals, after an all-night conference No money was involved in the trade, Weill said. Talking It Over BY JOE WILLIAMS NEW YORK, Dec. 17.—1 t was quite a pleasant surprise. The magnates came into town promis ing a lot of trades, and, strange to relate, they made good. This looks like an augury for better days in baseball and greater respect for the promises of the magnates. However, with all the trading, I was left a bit disappointed. In the old days it was an axiom of the majors that when times were bad and popular in terest lagged, a scrambling of faces became mandatory. As the astute John McGraw put it the other day, it is hard to sell a flop in baseball, and impossible to try to sell it two seasons in a row. I was unim pressed, in par ticular, by the tremendous ef fort to strengthen the Red Sox and Williams the Reds. The White Sox handed Boston a gang of castoffs for Hal Rhyne and Eddie Durham, and the Cincinnati club managed to buy a player by the name of Blair from Los Angeles. Not so long ago the champion Cubs relieved the Reds of Babe Herman, their one and only colorful player. The technical and financial out look at Fenway park has not improved by the signing of Marty McManus, who in midseason of 1932 relieved Shano Collins of the in somnia and other grief which comes with the managership of the Red Sox. Now don’t misunderstand me about McManus. He seems to be an estimable gentleman. But the situation in Boston shouts for Babe Ruth. However, it is to be McManus again, and I doubt if the fans of the Hub will dance in the streets at any time next season. No, not even with beer back again! tt tt tt OUR baseball statisticians point with pride to the fact that, since the world series, no fewer than fourteen trades involving fifty play ers, have been made. The festival of scrambling was started by Connie Mack when he sold A1 Simmons, Mule Haas and Jimmy Dykes to the White Sox for SBO,OOO. Soon thereafter the Giants traded Bill Walker, Jim Mooney, Ethan Allen and Bob O’Farrell to the Cardinals for Ray Starr and Gus Mancuso. Then the Cubs grabbed Babe Herman from the Reds for $75,000, Lance Richbourg, Bob Smith, Ralston Hemsley and Johnny Moore. * It was with keen interest that I learned of the efforts of the Giants to beat the Bruins to Herman. It seems that Terry offered $50,000 of Charley Stoneham's cash and Freddy Lindstrom for the one-time pride of Flatbush. But Stoneham’s $50,000 did not equal Phil Wrigley’s $75,000, so the Babe passed on to Chicago. There has been a lot of criticism of Terry’s trades. The gentlemen of the press box insist that Lindstrom was given away, and that Bill Walker was a gift to Sam Breadon. There is no doubt that much of this criticism is justified. But I believe we should bear with Terry and give him a fair chance. In 1932, with the club he took over from John McGraw on June 3, Terry finished no higher than a tie for sixth place with the Cardinals. Do not lose sight of the fact that the St. Louis boys went into the race with the tag “champions of the world.” Terry believes that no matter what he does in the way of trading, the Giants can not possibly be any worse than they were last season., * • u IN contrast with the swashbuckling style of Trader Terry, we have the safety first methods of Max Carey, and the standpatism of Joe McCarthy. I must confess that I rather like the Terry manner. The trading efforts of the Dodgers left me disappointed. I believe the club should have taken a more ro bust stand. I can not get excited about Ray Benge, whom I did not rate very high when he was a lot younger, with the Cleveland club. I think the Indians sent Ray to Waco for Hudlin. True, the Dodgers did not give up a first-line player for Benge. But perhaps Carey should have taken bigger risks. He has a pitching staff composed of old-timers, and that type will not win a pennant. SLAUGHTER GETS TEST Young Stuhley Tackles Negro Slug ger in Terre Haute Scrap. By Timet Special TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Dec. 17. Young Stuhley, battling Kewanee youngster, who holds victories over Jack Kilbourne, the Australian champion. Young Terry and other middelweight stars, will tangle with Sammy (Kid) Slaughter, tough Ter re Haute Negro slugger, over the ten-round route here Monday night in the feature scrap of Bud Taylor s fistic show. Stuhley is rated' highly and will furnish Slaughter with a hard as signment. Johnny Hughes of Clin ton and Ginger Gordon of Vin cennes, junior welters, tangle in the ae mi-windup. 4 r v. LXi OttlU. • Sunny Jim Bottomley w'ill be a welcome addition to the Queen City team and will help round out the infield that Manager Ownie Bush ! is reconstructing for the 1933 cam paign. The Cardinal veteran fell off to some extent in hitting in 1932, finishing with a mark of .296, but he is figured a better hitter than | this year's averages show. In 1931 he was a close contender for the high average title of the National League, batting 348. losing out to Chick Hafey and Bill Terry by a fraction of a point. Strong on Defense It is said Bottomley was not ex actly satisfied with conditions in St. Louis this year and was mentioned prominently as the new manager of the Reds until after Bush was landed. Sunny Jim is rated a high class defensive man on the inner works and carries a good punch at the plate. He swings and throws left-handed. Bottomley’s 1932 record follows: Games, 91; at bat 311; runs, 45; hits, 92; total bases, 147; doubles, 16; triples, 3; home runs, 11; sacri fice hits, 2; stolen bases. 2; runs batted in, 48; bases on balls, 25; struck out, 32; fielding average, .9859. His age is 32. Win 10; Lost 19 Owen Carroll, righthanded pitcher used as part of the deal for Bottom ley, won ten games and lost nine teen for the Redlegs in 1932. Aver age runs earned per nine-ining game off of him was 4.50. He is 30 years old. Estel Crabtree, the slender, fly chaser who will accompany Carroll to St. Louis, batted .273 this year. He is a lefthanded hitter and throws righthanded. His age is 27. He appeared in 108 games for the Cincy aggregation in 1932. He got 110 hits in 402 times at bat and his extra base hits were 14 doubles, 9 triples and 2 home runs. He stole 2 bases and made 10 sacrifice hits.

Trade Places in Swap Sh 9m Jim Bottomley Cruising in Sports BY EDDIE ASH JOHN M'GRAW turned loose a blast the other day that moved some of the major league baseball magnates to tone down depression talk. The once great major league manager was shocked by the wave of calamity howling. He said: “There is nothing wrong with base ball. There is nothing wrong with the attitude of the fan or his sup- port of a worth while attraction. The one thing wrong with baseball is the player. • “T h e player needs to display more aggres siveness. The average p a s - nowadays fails to realize it is best for him to be on his toes. Too much soft money, luxury and things like that may be re sponsible. A ?■: .:Y. : McGraw sensible reduction in salaries may correct the present shortcomings of the player. “When Shanty Hogan of the Giants was with the Braves he did not receive much money and worked during the off-season—worked hard. He kept in trim, hard as nails. When Hogan joined the Giants he got in to the soft money and it changed him. He was of little value to the team this year—and only 26. “Another thing. Some umpires have taken a lot of fire out of naturally aggressive players by be coming too autocratic. Moreover, there have not been enough trades between clubs. I say scramble ’em up and give the fdns a change of faces. To attempt to sell a flop two years in a row is fatal.” tt tt tt Evidently the big league owners took McGraw’s word for it. The traffic in athletes in New York this week was spec tacular and put baseball in the headlines in the dead of winter. The deals started the customers in the different cities af fected wagging their tongues. In other words the stove league was set blazing all over the country. Wade Killifer, new manager of the Indianapolis club, proposed the McGraw idea of a galaxy of trades at the recent minor league meeting in Columbus, but the other A. A. pilots shook their beads. Killifer may win his point after all. tt tt st M’GRAW’S reference to an over abundance of luxury hurting the players recalls old Washington park in Indianapolis, During games the new and sporty cars of the athletes were parked back of the left-field bleachers in the clubhouse lot inside the fence and the bleacher fans grew envious and got a pain in the neck watching the boys shine up their racy machines between games of double-headers, while John Fan himself toasted on the sizzling timber and munched a nickel’s worth of peanuts. tt tt If you believe New York papers Ownie Bush has served in the capacity of a rising stock market for Owner Weil of the Cincy Reds. It is a well-known fact that the Redlegs have been hard put for that thing called money and the New York World- Telegram says the Reds received $75,000 in actual dough when Babe Herman was transferred to the Cubs. In other words Bush got five players instead of four for Herman, namely, Johnny Mo*re, Lance Richbourg, Bob Smith, Rollie Hemrley and JOE CASH.. The first four named may be second stringers, but that last guy is “tops’’ in any man’s league. Herman’s batting skill may be missed at Redland field.but Owner Weil was in a boat without oars and if Bush received seventy-five grand in the deal it was a smart gamble. The peppery Hoosier Is confident he can arrange matters to make up for at least part of Herman’s '.oss —and then there’s JOE CASH to put all the boys and club directors in a happy frame of mind LEE KEYSER, Des Moines mag nate, known as the father of night baseball, has not yet closed for the purchase of the Kansas City Blues, but apparently is on the verge. It is said he turned down the same chance two years ago. He is an optimist, however and believes amusements will be the first enter prise to recover when the depression lifts. In 1923 Kanas City drew 430,- 000 and was rated the best minor league city in the country. C. also holds the record A. A. attendance for one day, 28,973 on Aug. 28, 1927. Since 1328 Kawtown attendance has grown lean and the club is “broke.” m m The While Sox are join* to spring train at Pasadena in 1933 and Johnny Hodapp was looking forward to hit first Tisit to California. He has seen the southland with ether clubs, practicing under Florida •on and in gay New Orleans, bnt Califor nia. ah! He was spending a sweK winter just thinking of the trip to the golden west when the bad news broke Thursday and he was shunted to the Boston Bed Sox and it will be back to Florida. Join ing the White Sox when they were tail enders and joining the Red Sox now when they are in the hole led a local friend of Hodapp’s to remark that Johnny broke through a cellar wall and crawled from one basement to another.
