Another Outfielder May Join Caps
[Vancouver Province, March 28]
There should be no shortage of outfield talent available to the Vancouver Capilanos this summer.
The list of “possibles” was boosted to seven Thursday, when Seattle Rainiers of the Coast League announced they had bought Bill Cleveland, a young flychaser who’s seen pro service with San Bernadino and Tucson. A Seattle newspaper said Cleveland would probably be sent to Vancouver.
Already in line for bids for outfield spots are Edo Vanni, last year with Spokane, and a fixture for right field; Joe Scalise, who hit .331 in the Class A Central League last year; Bob Duretto, former Montgomery player scouted by Manager Bill Schuster in California, and Ed Locke, Negro pitcher, who also doubles as an outfielder and who hit .340 last season.
Also available in May will be Bob McGuire, regular leftfielder last season, and of course General Manager Bob Brown is still hoping to get Gordie Brunswick back from the Rainiers for the centrefield slot.
