ATHLETICS SIGN VICTORIA PLAYER
In keeping with its policy outlined by the club at its inception, that of giving every encouragement to local players, Victoria Athletics, local entry in the Class “B” Western International Baseball League, yesterday signed Stan Curry, former soldier hurler to a professional contract.
Laurel Harney, Victoria manager, announced the signing of the husky 22-year-old Victoria portsider last night, but did not state the terms of the contract. The Athletics’ pilot feels that Curry has the potentialities of a good hurler, and like many more aspiring youngsters will get his chance to make good.
Curry has size and speed and a good curve ball, but lack of control may prove his stumbling block. However, we will get plenty of help in the training camp at Lewiston, Idaho, where the Victoria Athletics will undergo practically a month’s training before opening their 1946 camp at Wenatchee late in April.
