With the baseball season getting into full swing today
Chicago and Washington started early with a game yester
daywe will venture out on the limb for a look at this
year's pennant races.
The old saying, "You can't tell the players without a
scorecard," has never been truer and not
only players, but also managers have
been shuffled.
The American league alignment in
cludes two new American League teams
In Washington and Los Angeles with the
old Senators to Minneapolis-St. Paul. Six
new managers are directing teams in
cluding the two new tems and the Chi
cago Cubs have a coaching staff with no
permanent manager.
The new managers are Ralph Houk
with the New York Yankees, Bob Schet-
fing with the Detroit Tigers, Joe Gordon at Kansas City,
Bill Rigney with the Los Angeles Angels, Mickey Vernon
with the Washington Senators and Al Dark with San

1. Yankees-Mantle and Maris and who needs more?
2. Orioles The Baby Birds will have to play as well or
better than they did last year to keep their hold on sec
ond place.
3. Indians Jimmie Dykes has the Indians in shape and
if Johnny Antonelli can find himself and Johnny Temple
and Woodie Held can escape the injury bug, the Indians
could press the leaders.
4. White Sox There is a question about how much
longer oldsters like Early Wynn and Minnie Mmoso can
go on. Age could catch up with the White Sox.
5. Twins-Minnesota club has one of the best catchers
in majors with Earl Battey and to top-flight huriera
in Camilo Pascual and Pedro Ramos. Manager Cookie
Lavagetto is hoping Ramos doesn't carry out his threat
to leave club and help In fight against Castro.
6. Red Sox-Return of Jackie Jensen and top perform
ance from rookie sensation Carl Yastrzemski will more
than make up for loss of Ted Williams.
7. Tigers-Detroit got rid of two top performers in
Harvey Kuenn and Frank Boiling. Tigers will be going
with an inexperienced infield.
8. Athletics-Addition of two teams to league wul get
Kansas City out of the American League basement.
9. Angels Power hitting of Bob Cerv, Ted Kluszew
ski and maybe Steve Bilko will push the Angels ahead
of the Washington club.
10. Senators This will probably go down as the worst
team in American League history.
1. Dodgers Best pitching staff in baseball plus top
infield and outfield. Only weakness is behind the plate.,
2. Pirates Will battle Dodgers right down to the
wire, but Pittsburgh can't expect to win as many come-

3. Braves Infield was strengthened considerably with
addition of Frank Boiling and Roy McMillan, but gap was
left in center field when Bruton was traded.
4. Giants New manager Al Dark will weld Giants into a
happier family and should make first division.
5. Cardinals Pitchers must come through again and
outfield is weak with no combination that is adequate both
at the plate and in the field.
6. Reds Good outfield, and Ed Bailey is one of best
behind the plate. If pitching comes through, Reds could be
7. Cubs With experimental coaching staff, Cubs can
expect to finish no higher than last year and will face bat

8. Phillies Will be better than last year and will give
Cubs a strong run for seventh place.
