Baseball fans, take a look at the calendar. Onlv 23 davs until
action starts in the major league spring training Grapefruit League
some major league muds win start training toward tne end or
February, with pitchers and catchers getting an early start. By
March 1, all big league clubs will be working out The first spring
exhibition games are scheduled for March 8.
Spring training is always a cala affair. In the snrine. there arm
sixteen potential pennant winners. Almost every ball player feels he
is going io nave -a great year.
This year the fans' enthusiasm will be curtailed slightly by the
draft, as some of the top stars in both leagues have gone into the
armed forces. Some of the big tent favorites who will be missing
from training sites this year are Ted Williams, Don Newcombe,
Willie Mays, and Gerry Coleman.
We predict that the White Sox will aeain be the winnineest team
in the Grapefruit circuit. They usually are. Last year they didn't stop
at the end of spring training, but kept on winning until July.
Some old rivalries will be renewed this year. The New York
Giants, returning to their Arizona training base after a year in
Florida, will resume their scries with the Cleveland Indians. The
New York Yanks, again in St. Petersburg, FloriJa, after training
in Arizona last year, will renew their trad":nal series with the
St. Louis Cards.
After the spring sessions are over, sixteen malor leaeue teams
will head northward for their April 15 opening day games. Then the
races will be on. And it looks like they will be close races.
in the National league the Giants will be the favorites. The
Dodgers have been weakened by the loss of Newcombe, and some
of the Brooks are aging a bit. We doubt if they can field the
terrific club they had last year. Even though the Dodgers were
nipped in the playoffs and blew a big lead, they had an outstand

Over in the American League, the choice lies between the
Yankees, Indians, White Sox and Red Sox. Each club has "ifs" which
will mean the difference between winning and losing.
The Yanks will win if they can replace Joe DiMaggio and
Gerry Coleman, and if Mickey Mantle and Bob Cerv come through,
mu ii wey can una a aay-in-aay-out iirst naseman.
The Indians will win if they can start hitting, and if their
pitching staff, particularly Bob Feller, can turn in another nerform-
ance like last year's.
The White Sox will win If the sophomore Jinx doesn't get
Orestes Minoso, Jim Busby and manager Paul Richards, and if
pitching improves, and if they can hit with regularity all season.
The Red Sox will win if they look as good on the field as they
do on paper, and if someone can take over for Ted Williams, nnd if
Maurice McDermott doesn't have to do all the chucking for the Sox.
