Sox Can't Hit on Home Grounds
Phelaii a Daily Hero.
It is a time-worn excuse, but some
architectural defect in the South Side
baseball park must be responsible for
the failure of the White Sox to hit
the ball. The puzzling feature is that
visiting teams as a rule do not suffer
from the same cause.

It is a fairly safe bet that the young
ster will never burn up the league in
batting, and when a man can be a
