$1,000,000 Willie
Mays Offer
By Roscoe L. McCrary
ST. LOUlS—(Special) When
it was revealed here this week
that St. Louis Cardinal owner
August A. Busch, Jr., had offer
ed $1,000,000 for Giants center
fielder Willie Mays, it pointed
up a pledge made by the Red
Bird president four years ago.
It was in March 1953 when
Mr. Busch first acquired the
Cardinal team from Fred Saigh.
Up to that time the National
League Club was among the few
holdouts on Negro ball players.
In answer to a query froih re
porters on the future hiring
policy of the team, Mr. Busch
had this to say:
“We hope the Cardinals will
be one of the representative
teams in the country I can
assure you our policy will be to
have all players selected on the
basis of their ability ”
Mr. Busch, who is also presi
dent of Anheuser-Busch, Inc.,
has followed that policy down
through his scouting staff and
including the numerous clubs in
the Cardinal farm system.
The Mays deal came to light
this week when it was revealed
that former general manager
Frank Lane, under prodding
from Mr. Busch, attempted to
snatch Willie in an effort to
solve the Cardinal centerfield
problem. The tran
saction was reported to have in
cluded Wally Moon among the
Red Birds and farm hands. A
$750,000 cash offer went with
the proposal.
The Giants, plagued by poor
attendance and loss of income,
were seriously> considering the
offer at one time. But when the
move to San Francisco came up,
it was quickly nullified.
Horace Stoneman, president of
the Giants, in confirming the

So they named it Signal Peak. The mine on
the mountain was called Signal Mine. An’ the
town that grew up nearby came to be called

The SIOO,OOO story of long Tom
Alston is near legend in base
ball circles. Tom was brought
from the Pacific Coast League
and became the first Negro in
a Cardinal uniform. Shortly be
fore the Alston deal, the Mound
City Press Club in St. Louis
cited Mr. Busch for:
“ Your acquisition of the St.
Louis National Baseball club, and
the true democratic philosophy
that you have brought to the
administration of the St. Louis
Cardinals, which exemplifies the
real meaning of American
sportsmanship in the great
American game.”
At present there are 37 young
Negroes in Cardinal organiza
tion, two of whom are with the
St. Louis balk club. The others
are scattered throughout the
farm system. They include:

Samuel Jones; Albany: Jessie

ed that since the polio season
