r But using Corriden .is a good thing,
feven' though the team is weakened
for the present. The youngster shows
signs of in "time budding into a good
shortstop, and he can only be
brought out by actual conflict on the
diamond. As pennant possibilities the
Cubs are through. The absence of
Bridwell cannot hurt them.
Evers hasNused .good judgment in
handling Corriden this season. Red
has sat on the bench and watched
Bridwell and the other shortstops at
work. He has absorbed a lot of the
thinking side of the game, and now,
.with the Cub race run, is the proper
time to let him put some' of his
knowledge, which is conlbined with
"good mechanical ability, into effect.
Like Butk Weaver of the' White
Sox, Gorriden has a tendency to
overrun balls hit right at him. Here
the similarity between the two local
youths ends. Corriden cannot cover
nearly as much ground as'TVeaver,
but he is far 'in ore accurate in his
throwing. Red can be tamed and
'taught to use" his speed so he won't
step on his own feet. x He looks like
a good prospect, as he has'plenty of
confidence at the plate.
