49 DON BUDDIN, INFIELDER: Hit .292 and 18 homers as Louisville shortstop last year. Definitely a comer.
The Sox's wealth of youngsters is deep, but two who bear particular watching are Third Baseman Frank Malzone and Outfielder Marty Keough, both of whom hit better than .300 for Louisville last year.
BOARD OF STRATEGY
5 MIKE HIGGINS, MANAGER: A big silent man who was once a slugging third baseman for the A's, Tigers and Red Sox, he seldom leaves the dugout. He distinguished himself as a freshman manager last year by getting along well with Ted Williams and showing a fine, understanding hand with all the Red Sox's young players.
Coaches are MICKEY OWEN (30), JACK BURNS (31), DEL BAKER (32), and DAVE FERRISS (33).
