BASEBALL X-RAY

July 21, 1957

Best Rookie in American League, depending upon method of selection, is either Frank Malzone (left) or Roger Maris. Malzone, a .321 hitter, spent part of two previous seasons on Red Sox roster. Cleveland's Maris, never in a big league game before this year—and therefore X-Ray's choice—has led rookies in home runs, RBIs (see also page 63).
