  Pacific Coast LeagueMeets to Plot Future SAN FRANCISCO (UP)  –  The turbulentPacific Coast League, up to its neck in self- built woes, meets here today in extra-specialsession to consider these cases:1  –  The draft  –  whether to continue to battleagainst it or to meekly accept the status quothat allows the major leagues to yearly selectthe cream of the PCL crop at $10,000 per man. It’s a sore spot with the Coast moguls. They remember when Oakland paid $25,000 for a player from one big league club and had himdrafted by another club for $10,000 at the endof the season.2  –  The San Francisco Seals  –  what to doabout them.The meeting was srcinally called to hear areport on the committee that met with major league representatives in the east to discuss theabolition of the draft from the PCL.However, one of the big backers for thismove was Paul I. Fagan, who now has offeredthe San Francisco PCL franchise and playersfor sale at $350,000.It also is probable that the meeting may de-velop into a hassle over president Clarence (Pants) Rowland’s handling of PCL affairs.  C.L. (Brick) Laws, president of the Oakland Acorns, says he is “thoroughly disgusted” with the way Rowland has been handling the league.

But even by their standards, SamHairston, whose 10th inning single drove in the winning run in Tuesday’s 8 -7 win over theWashington Senators, is a special case. The win was the South Siders’ seventh in a row, and propelled them into a virtual first- place tie with the Red Sox.Hairston became the first Negro signed bythe White Sox on July 31, 1950  –  as he was enroute to winning the triple crown in his fifth and final Negro League season. He wasn’t called up to the big club until late last month.He was 2-for-5 in limited duty before entering Tuesday’s game in a double switch.  He doubled and scored in the bottom of theseventh, was accorded an intentional walk inthe eighth and capped off his night with a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 10th.Reliever Luis Aloma (8-2), who failed tohold a two-run lead in the ninth, got the win.Tom Ferrick (1-2) took the loss.Ray Coleman, Eddie Robinson and OrestesMinoso homered for Chicago.

Douglas MacAr-thur was promised the job of baseball commis-sioner by unanimous vote but turned it down, itwas reported Tuesday by the Chicago Tribune.The general was not immediately availablefor comment but his aide, Maj. Gen. CourtneyWhitney, declining to confirm or deny it, said: “As far as I know the general has never  given serious thought to the baseball commis- sionership.”  The Tribune, in a Washington dispatch,quoted a baseball club owner as saying a com-mittee representing the owners had spent threehours with the general last week at his suite atthe Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Boston Red Sox manager Steve O’Neill scoffed at reports that his third baseman, VernStephens, is nearing the end of his career be-cause of a recurring leg injury.Stephens pulled a tendon Sunday, and theBoston Evening American said he may be outfor the season. The paper said there was even talk that he won’t play much more baseball.   “Stephens is definitely staying with the cluband he’ll be used as a pinch hitter until thattendon heals,” O’Neill said. “He’ll be back inthe lineup before the end of the season.”  PHILADELPHIA  –    It’s been an eventful sea- son for Stan Musial, who has tagged his 200thcareer home run, notched his 900th RBI and scored his 1,000th run.

The Man’s 32nd homer upped his RBI total to 114. His 1-for-3 effort held his average steady at .351.He leads the National League in all three TripleCrown categories.There have been but 10 Triple Crown winnerssince the turn of the century.
