Cards Held Certain to Grab Flag: Luque, 44, Is Dean of 335 Big Leaguers
Deans Figure to Win Half
Enough Games to Keep
Flag, Says Writer.
CHICAGO. March 2.—It is noted
that a New York betting com
missioner is quoting the St.
Louis Cardinals as 8-to-5
favorites for the National League
pennant. I do not see how the Gas
House boys can miss.
With no assistance from the recruits
Frankie Frisch will inspect at Braden
ton, the Cardinals still will be the
best team in their league and should
win with greater ease than in 1934.
when they did not put a clincher on
the flag until the final day of the
campaign. New York and Chicago
may annoy the Cardinals for a while,
but they do not appear to have suf
ficient strength to carry the battle
into the stretch.
The Cardinals will be a better ball
team, if only because the dazzling
Deans will be satisfied workmen Both
Diz and Daf have signed contracts
which will bring them a financial re
ward commensurate with their abilities
and Sam Breadon will have no strikes
on him this year, although opposing
batters will have plenty. The Deans
now are established as the greatest
pitchers in base ball and they will be
throwing cn behalf of that reputation
as well as the dear old Cardinals. The
brothers should be good for 50 vic
tories. and there’s half of a pennant
Gelbert Feels He’s Ready.
ST. LOUIS is certain of fine catch
ing with "Sassy" Bill Delaneey to
do the bulk of the work and
“Spud” Davis on hand to help with
odd assignments. The infield is
nifty, with “Ripper” Collins. Frisch,
Durocher and Martin, the pepper pot.
holding down the assignments. Charlie
Gelbert. the grand shortstop, who was
injured while hunting a few seasons
back, now believes he is ready for
action, and. if he can resume his place
on the team, the Cardinals will be
well protected at shortstop. Burgess
Whitehead also is a handy young
mitten for infield work and Frisch
probably will find further aid in one
or two of the youngsters brought up
from Cardinal farms.
“Apple Annie” Joe Medwiek and
Jack Rothrock are certain to hold
down the right and left field posi
tions, but there will be a red-hot tussle
for the middle garden berth. A couple
of Moore boys are coming up from
Columbus and either or both of them
may stick with the parent team. Ter
rence Moore, a 21-year-old not long
off the St. Louis sandlots, was a bril
liant performer in the American As
sociation, and. despite his limited ex
perience, may make the big league
Have Other Pitchers.
TERRENCE can hit, run, throw
and field, and nothing more ever
is asked of any man. Gene
Moore is not so sensational as Terry,
but a good, steady hand and likely to
see considerable work in the Card
line-up. Ernie Orsatti, the game little
Italian, also will bid to retain the
center field job. and. if he has recov
ered from his hurts of last Fall, will
be plenty valuable.
While the Deans are half the Card
inal pitching staff, Frisch can expect
consistent work from Bill Walker,
the tall leftie, who was going like a
forest fire last Summer until injured.
Bill had regained all of the stuff he
ever threw for the Giants and should
be a sure winner this Summer. Pat
Malone, recently of the Cubs, still is
capable and Wild Bill Hallahan has
not jerked all of the strikes from his
left arm. Frisch will round up some
other pitchers, but, even if none ma
terialize at Bradenton, he still will
have enough to do the job.
The Cardinals are a great money
team. They showed that in winning
the National League flag on a stretch
drive last year and then grabbing the
world series from Detroit. They are
perhaps the best money team since
the old Boston Red Sox or Philadel
phia Athletics of 1910-1914 and never
admit defeat until the final out is
turned. Such a crew will ride over
many obstacles, and, at this distance,
it is impossible to see how the Cards
can be blocked out of the champion

Berger, in American; Ruth
in National, Are Most
Prized Newcomers.
Associated Press Sports Writer.
CHICAGO, March 2.—A parade
in ink from the major league
base ball rosters of 1935:
“Grandpappy” of the ac
tive players: Adolfo Luque, right
handed pitching veteran of the New
York Giants. The iron-armed Cuban,
now 44 years old, is the oldest timer of
them all. He is eight months older
than his closest rival—Rabbit Maran
ville of the Boston Braves.
The ‘'kid” rookie: Phil Cavarretta,
prospective first baseman and home
run king of the Chicago Cubs. Phil,
who made his debut last September
by smashing out a home run to beat
Cincinnati, 1 to 0, won’t be 18 until
next July. Luque was 27 when Cavar
retta first saw the light of day.
Most highly prized rookies in each
league: American, Bozie Berger, an
infielder who is expected to plug up a
big hole for the Indians on their pen
nant dash; National, a young fellow
named Babe Ruth, out after a name
and his second million dollars with
the Boston Braves.
Biggest player: Jim Weaver, Pitts
burgh pitcher. Big Jim stands 6 feet
6 inches, weighs 230 pounds and can
eat three steaks at one sitting. J.
Francis Hogan of the Braves weighs
240 but is 5 inches shorter.
Ankenman Is Smallest.
THE midget—Pat Ankenman, jr.,
shortest rookie, with the world
championship Cardinals. Pat
stands 5 feet 4 inches high and weighs
only 133 pounds. He came up from
Houston of the Texas League, a club
of which his father Is president.
Starred at University of Texas for
three years. Pat is a base-stealing
fiend, so they say.
Mos£ popular name: It's now a
tough struggle between the Moores
and Browns. There are six Moores—
all in the National League—to five
Browns. Introducing the Moores: Joe
Moore, Giants: Randy Moore, Braves;
Euel and John Moore. Phillies; Eu
gene and Terry Moore, Cardinals. All
the Moores are outfielders except Euel,
a pitching prospect obtained from
Galveston. Introducing the Browns:
Mace Brown, Pittsburgh, Bob Brown,
Braves; Clint and Lloyd Brown, Cleve
land. and Walter Brown, Yankees.
All the Browns are pitchers. Then
there is another with an "e” on the
end of his name. Earle Browne, south
paw pitcher and first baseman, pur
chased by Pittsburgh from Little
Rock. If you count him, the Brown
Moore popularity race is all even at
six each.
Connie Carries On.
OLDEST manager: You’re right.
It's Connie Mack. The tall tac
tician is starting his thirty-fifth
year at the helm of the Athletics with
the youngest team in the big show.
Youngest manager: Joe Cronin of
the Boston Red Sox. Cronin is only
Youngest batter ffrom standpoint
of youth and all-around effective
ness): Paul Dean and Bill Delancey
of the Cardinals. Combined age is
44. Paul is 21, Bill is 23.
Heaviest battery: Pitcher Leslie
Munns, weight 205 pounds; Catcher E,
Gordon Phelps, weight 225 pounds.
They are Casey Stengel's food de
stroyers and heavyweights.
Largest Spring squad: Cincinnati
Reds. The Reds have 38 players on
their roster—17 pitchers. 10 infielders,
7 outfielders and four catchers. Small
est squad: St. Louis Browns and Bos
ton Braves—25 each.
Grand total of players, both leagues*
496 players—249 for the National
League: 247 for the American League.
Assortment, both leagues: 210 pitchers,

Sixth in Eight Meets.
Fleming Lands K.O.
Catholic university’s
boxing team took its sixth
victory in eight starts last
night at Brookland by
thumping Carnegie Tech, substitute
for Duquesne, 6 to 2. About 3,000
saw the matches.
The show provided four knockouts,
with Red Fleming, undefeated Card
light-heavy, scoring his seventh
knockout of the season by finishing
Dave Boyd after 1 minute and 15
seconds of the first round.
Other knockouts for the Red Birds
included a one-round slumber punch
by Angelo Restaino in the 125-pound
battle, with A1 Shapiro as the victim.
Referee Hughes stopped the bout,
thus breaking the 13-kayo Jinx which
the Cards had facing them.
Ed Thibodeau, captain of the C. U.
team, returned to winning form to
batter Bill Beall out after 1 minute
and 15 seconds of the second round.
Beall had a rapier left that caused
Thibodeau plenty of trouble in the
first heat, but a well-aimed punch in
the abdomen at the start of the sec
ond round and a left to the Jaw and
Beall folded up like an empty wallet.

Court Tilt Is Sloppy.
THE basket ball tilt undoubtedly
marked a new low in caliber
and a new high in comedy, but
despite its sloppiness, the tilt was
keenly contested.
The Johnnies, taking the floor with
four freshmen in the line-up—Ross,
Lambros, Power and Len Delisio—
assumed an 8-to-3 lead in the first
10 minutes of play, when Maryland
persistently outfumbled them. With
the injection of A1 Waters, Maryland
braced and ran up three consecutive
field goals to take a 9-to-8 lead at
the half. Waters accounted for two
of the goals, while Charley Keller
kicked in with the other.
The final 20 minutes was worse
than sloppy. Neither team could
pass nor catch passes. The shooting,
with one exception, was woeful. The
exception was Johnny Lambros, who
played a bang-up game throughout
for St. John’s.
After Bill Andorka had sent the
score to 11-8 In favor of Maryland,
starting the second half, Lambros
dropped in two double-deckers and
Len Delisio another to assume a 14
to-11 lead that never was relinquished.
It was the Terrapins’ most dismal
performance of a spotty season.

Brown won the high jump outright
for the first time in his dazzling col
lege career and then soared to a new
meet mark of 14 feet 3U inches in his
specialty, the pole vault, subsequently
falling in three attempts to negotiate
the world record height of 14 feet
5'/2 inches.

Venzke Wins Easily.
Gene Venzke. the slim University of
Pennsylvania foot racer, signalized his
first triumph in the I. C. 4-A. competi
tion by outclassing a big field in the
1,500-meter run. Venzke broke the
tape 50 yards in front of his nearest
pursuer, John Scheu of Harvard, but
his time of 3:57.6 was one-fifth sec
ond short of the meet record set last
year by Tiger Bill Bonthron.
Venzke lost his chance to hang up
a new mark by getting tangled in
the pack during the first few laps.
He finally gained command after four
circuits of the board oval and had no
competition the rest of the way.
John Meaden, a Cornell sophomore,
furnished the big surprise by coming
from behind with a brilliant finish
to take third place, 6 yards behind

yearlings last Winter.

meter run, Manhattan’s Bill Ray came
back soon afterward to register a
smashing 800 meters anchor leg In
the 3,200-meter varsity relay and car
ry his team to triumph.
Ray collapsed after breaking the
tape 5 yards in front of Hines of
Boston College.
