Rocky Colavito, who late yesterday became the latest White Sox weapon, may be in right field against Johnny Podres of the Detroit Tigers in one of today’s two games. It all depends on whether then 33-year-old outfielder arrives in Chicago in time after cleaning out his locker in Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium. General Manager Ed Short

You’d have to say General Manager Jim Campbell and the disabled Al Kaline are both good hunch players with the Tigers. Campbell resisted all winter and last spring in making one of Detroit’s five outfielders available in a trade. “Why do you need five?” other negotiators demanded. “You never know what’s going to happen,” said

Street & Smith’s: The first half of the 1966 season was fun for the Astros and their new manager, Grady Hatton. At the end of June, they were riding along in fifth place, surprise team in the race.

The cellar-dwellers Kansas City Athletics and the Washington Senators met on a hot Sunday afternoon in the Nation’s Capital. The 8,519 in attendance certainly were not expecting much as the home team had been walloped 12-0 in yesterday’s affair.
