the Jackmacks from the leadership, and Bridgeport seven
It's still a hot race. Today Gene McCann is likely to send

Tip To Kingdon
The home run rapped ont In
Springfield yesterday by Short
stop "Wes" Kingdon recalls a
rainy day conversation with the
player on batting this week.
Kingdon owes his big improve
ment over last year in hitting
the ball by using a heavier bat,
Ve player said. In the Pacific
oast League last season King
don used a light stick and batted
less than .200. When ho went
South with the Yankees in the
spring Babe Rath advised: King
don to use a heavier stick. King
don followed the Mambino's ad
vice and today is reaping good
results, and is chasing on the
lieela of the .300 cloutcrs in the
Ever notice Kingdon swinging
three bats while a waiting his
turn at the bat, while the other
players use only two? Thai's
the way the players got accus
tomed to using heavier batting
