Rainiers May Option Tran
PALM SPRINGS Calif., Mar. 24—Redheaded second baseman Len Tran, who cut a fancy figure in the Western International league the past two seasons, may be optioned by the Seattle Rainiers to Oklahoma City of the Texas league.
General Manager Earl Sheely of the Rainiers said the deal depends upon Tran.
Sheely feels the young second sacker is ready to graduate from class B to class AA baseball after hitting .340 and .310 with the Vancouver Capilanos in 1949 and 1950.
Jim Humphries, part owner of the Oklahoma City club, put to a bid for Tran after watching him perform for the Rainiers in spring training.
