Orioles Keep Agreement With Lewiston
LEWISTON, Idaho, Oct. 1—The Baltimore Orioles, new American League baseball team, Wednesday renewed a 1953 working agreement with the Lewiston Broncs of the Class “A” Western International League.
President James McGonigle said at the same time the St. Louis Browns recalled speedy centre-fielder Al Heist, who led the league in triples with 17 this year, and pitcher Russ Butler, who hurled a perfect no-hit, no-run game during the Broncs’ final series.
Heist set a league record as the fastest man around the bases this year, and hit .287.
The Browns said both players will be sent to San Antonio of the Class “AA” Texas League.
