"With the coming of the baseball
season many of the major leaguers
are making predictions and prom
ises. Among the top players to
make a statement is the Chicago
Cub's powerful Hank Sauer.
Saur stated this week that he
doesn't believe that he will match
last years output of 37 homeruns
but that he will definitely be aim
ing tor driving in more runs and
becoming a better ballplayer.
Word came .out from the Cub's
training camp at Mesa, Arizona,
that Hank is not satisfied with his
early pre-season hitting.
In his first two games this year,
Saur belted one homer and came
through in the clutch of two sing
les. Hank has been taking sugges
tions from everyone in the past
few years as to bow he could im
prove bis batting eye. This year
he says that he will consider what
people have told "him but that he
will be practicing hard and find
cut bis own mistakes.
