POINT OF FACT
A baseball quiz to test the ingenuity and add to the knowledge of both the casual fan and the armchair expert
Too Young
Auto War
HOT, MOTORIZED WAR FOR U.S. DOLLARS
The public seemed the one sure winner last week as a new wave of American compacts clashed with a wide variety of imported cars at New York's biggest International Automobile Show
Cubs And Coaches
Scouting Reports 1961
PITTSBURGH PIRATES
The Pirates, under tough little Danny Murtaugh, are looking for another pennant with the same lively crew—Hoak, Groat, Skinner, etc.—that won last year
MILWAUKEE BRAVES
The Braves won pennants in '57 and '58, then slipped to second after that. They are still strong and powerful, but they are beginning to live in the past
ST. LOUIS CARDINALS
Elderly Stan Musial's bat helps the Cardinal attack, but his aging legs weaken outfield defense—which typifies the Cards' problem of nonfielding hitters
LOS ANGELES DODGERS
The Los Angeles Dodgers, a team of potential superstars who haven't yet made it, are run by a superfinancier who has. They could win the pennant
SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Candlestick Park is a windy, precarious foothold for any manager, but Alvin Dark, with a few anchors to windward like Willie, hopes to lead Giants into the sun
CINCINNATI REDS
Some, including Manager Fred Hutchinson, thought the Reds were complacent last year. It won't happen again, if Hutch has his way: he's trying to recharge his lethargic team
CHICAGO CUBS
In revolt against Cubs' futility, Phil Wrigley beefed up his coaching staff, dispensed with his manager. Some live hitters and pitchers would help this team more
PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
Young men have their days, but in Philly they spell it with a "ze" at the end. Some young Phils are big leaguers, others might be some day; this will be a long year for all
NEW YORK YANKEES
Gone from the Yanks is Casey Stengel, the master manager. This year Ralph Houk, a comparative child, shall lead them. Team is strong, so it should be pleasant work
BALTIMORE ORIOLES
Paul Richards maneuvers his young Orioles with a magician's hand. In 1960 he almost came up with a pennant, but he'll be hard pressed to do as well this year
CHICAGO WHITE SOX
Bill Veeck shoots off fireworks in Comiskey Park, and his White Sox are skyrockets on the bases. But they are an old team, and their age is starting to show
CLEVELAND INDIANS
A solid first team, with Jim Piersall promising no more of last year's antics, will make the Indians tough all year long. Injuries, however, would hurt this benchless club
MINNESOTA TWINS
As the Senators last year, the Twins were one of the most improved teams in the league. Now, with the support of their enthusiastic new Minnesota fans, they may do even better
DETROIT TIGERS
The somnolent Tiger wouldn't hurt a kid pitcher—most days. Manager Bob Scheffing must get the Tiger up and roaring, but he'd have more luck if he had some infielders
BOSTON RED SOX
Williams is gone, Jensen Is back, and the question is: how much of Williams' sock can Jensen fill? Probably enough to help make Boston a better club over-all
KANSAS CITY ATHLETICS
Frank Lane has taken over at Kansas City, which means today's Athletics may be tomorrow's Senators or Tigers. The A's are bad, but they won't stand still
LOS ANGELES ANGELS
Club Owner Gene Autry has always been on the side of the Angels. Now he is trying to lead his new band in the right direction: up. It looks like a long, slow trip
WASHINGTON SENATORS
The new Senators are, unhappily, hand-me-downs from the other clubs. Washington has had a long run of poor teams, and this one upholds the tradition
