? Indianapolis Sweep
The Indianapolis Indians of the American Association took the Little World
Series in four straight games from the Rochester Red Wings of the International
League. Indian Manager Kerby Farrell, a pennant winner in three leagues, is
being mentioned as possible successor to Al Lopez in Cleveland.
?Blind Love in Kansas City
Kansas City and surrounding territory, smitten deeply with major league
baseball, produced over a million paid admissions at Municipal Stadium though
the Athletics have wallowed in last place since June 26.
?Raw Ingenuity in Baltimore
In Baltimore, attendance wound up at a creditable 900,000 plus, but the 900,000
mark was passed, on a raw day, thanks to the determined ingenuity of gamblers
who bought up $2,000 worth of last-day tickets, sent kids through turnstiles
repeatedly with them, won $20,000 in bets.
Swaps is again set to run on an eastern track, in the $100,000 Washington
International at Laurel, Md. Nov. 12 ("Barring unforeseen mishaps,"
Meshach Tenney adds). Also entered are France's Macip, Australia's Prince
Cortauld. Nashua, Swaps's old rival, would have been invited but will probably
be retired to stud after the Jockey Club Gold Cup on Oct. 13.
