That Is, he didn't know any a couple of week* ago. when he arrived. His progress has been amazing. The tall, lithe young n|ian from Caracas, venetuela, has been catch ing the eyes of the fans; here as Fopt Worth plays Dallas a series. He is a fine fielder and a fair hitter <12 hits in 52 times at bat). Wj** *• The Texas League wasn’t Carra- squel’s firpt stop. He was in spring training with the Brooklyn Dod gers squad and was shipped to Montreal. But he didn’t; get to play there. Fort Worth heeded a man and Carrasquel was sent a- long. . '] j At first Alfonso—his teammates call him Chico which, he'explains, means pal or friend—bald to get along with signs and ai bat boy who spoke Spanish. Then jnine days ago Cal Abrams came to the Cats. Cal is fnprh Brooklyn arid speaks Spanish. He not only communicates what teammates want iGhico to know bdtis helping the Venezuel an leam English.
