All-Star Win Is 'Must'
For National League, Ford Frick Asserts Sy the iiwwlid Pratt NEW YORK, June 30.—The Na tional League will face the Ameri-' ean League in the J6th All-Star game at Brooklyn on July 12 with one psychological edge in its favor All four of its victories have come on home fields. Irked by 11 trimmings since the classic originated in 1933 < there was none in 1945) National League President Ford Frick is detcrmt.ied to do everything he can to make this a winning year for his squad "We have got to win this game, rand it's up to you to get our greatest strength into action, "i Frick is reported to have told Bos ton Manager Billy Southworth, who will lead the National League ▲11-Stars. In the past the pilots felt they had a mandate from the fans to loiiow the vote tabulations. How ever. Frick is reported to have told 8outhworth to use his strongest lineup, after the third inning, re gardless of the poll. The fans select only 16 of the M players named on the two sides. 8outhworth and Cleveland's Lou Boudreau, who will manage the American League team, must play these selections for tl\e first three innings. They will pick their own pitchers, probably eight or nine on each side. The fans’ vote ended last mid night, but at least three starters for each team remained in doubt. The American League team will be made public July S. and the National AU-8tar combination will be announced two days later. Net receipts from the game will go to the baseball players' pension fund. On orders from Commis sioner A. B. Chandler, no player will be excused unless he is pre vented from appearing because of an injury or illness. For years it has been the prac tice of several stars to bow out of the game. Last year Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians and j Marty Marion of the St. Louis' Cardinals begged off. The site will be Ebbets Field, which was slated to have had the 1942 game. That one. however,! was switched to the more spacious Polo Grounds in New York to ac comodate a larger crowd. The park's capacity is around 35,000 seats. The game is sched uled to start at 1:30 p.m., Wash ington time. The price range will be $1 for bleacher seats, $2 and; $3 for grandstand seats. $4 for | upper box seats and $5 for lower Joge boxes. The last time the National League won was in 1944 in Pitts burgh. Incidentally, Southworth managed the winners. He also had a loser in '43. The American League won the last three, includ ing last year's 5-2 triumph in 8t. Louis. For the first time since he broke Into the majors, with the excep tion of the three years he spent In the service, the Yankees’ great Joe Di Maggio will not make the All-Star team. Plagued by an aching right heel. Di Mag made his 1949 debut only two days before the end of the voting. Leagues to Use New Men. From the looks of things each league will present at least three players, excluding pitchers, who have seen no previous All-Star action. The National will show Brook lyn's Jackie Robinson, St. Louis’ Eddie Kazak and Philadelphia’s Andy Seminick for the first time. The American will counter with Washington’s Eddie Robinson, Chicago’s Cass Michaels and New York’s Bobby Brown.
