FULLERTON, IN DODGERS' TRAINING CAMP,
SEES A CHANCE FOR BROOKLYN
BY HUGH S. FULLERTON.
Augusta, Ga., March 9. Brooklyn
seems, at first glance, almost hopeless
as a National League pennant con
tender. The surprise is .to find' the
training camp of the Dodgers full of
hope and enthusiasm -and with a
spirit that has existed only once in
the last decade, and that for. a short
time last year.
Probing .more deeply into the
make-up, of the Dodgers, one is sur
prised to find that it has the frame
work of a pennant winning team.
Given consistent pitching, a short
stop, and Brooklyn looms up as one
of the pennant contenders. Man for
man today (with pitchers eliminat
ed), Brooklyn has a stronger team
than the Giants.
The worst fault of the Brooklyn
team b,as been the abnormal lazi
ness" of carelessness of its pitchers,
and the same fault commenced to
crop up almost before the team had
landed in its, training camp here.
Much of this was due to careless
management of Dahlen during the
last f ew years. Dahlen did rtot compel
the pitchers to .do the fielding that all
winning pitchers should do.
Shortstop looks like the weakest
spot on the team. Joe Tinker, lost by
Ebbetts' tinkering, would have made
the team look much stronger. Neither
Egan nor Cutshaw can play short,
and neither wants to try it which
