Brunswick Is Sent to Caps
SEATTLE, May 8 — Rookie outfielder Gordy Brunswick has been assigned by Seattle's Coast League Rainiers to Vancouver and may turn his talents to pitching.
He is scheduled to report to Mgr. Bill Schuster of the Western International League team Friday in Yakima.
Brunswick, who played first base while at Washington State College and has been an outer gardener in pro baseball, has been throwing to the hitters in batting practice for Seattle. His speed and control prompted Mgr. Bill Sweeney to recommend that Schuster give him a chance on the mound for Vancouver.
