Vanni Released By Seattle Club
SEATTLE, April 17, (UP) — Edo Vanni has been given his outright release from the Seattle Rainiers of the Pacific coast baseball league.
The 30-year-old outfielder had returned to the Rainiers after two seasons with the Western International league at Spokane and Yakima. He was Yakima's top hitter in 1949.
The Rainiers still have six players to cut from the roster before April 26. They currently have 31 men on the lists, with the PCL limit 25.
Don Crough, the Edmontonian who played defence with Calgary Buffaloes the past puck campaign, left recently for Yakima, Washington to try out with the Yakima club of the Class B Western International Baseball League. One of Edmonton's outstanding junior hurlers last summer, he's regarded as a good pro prospect.
