Jimmy Breton, since being placed
regularly at third base with the first
section of the White Sox team, has
been doing his work in toppy fashion,
and all signs point to his beginning
the season with 'the assignment be
side Buck Weaver. Breton can take
care of the job defensively, and he is
agile enough to move around the
bases speedily if he can get on.
There is the rub. In the past Bre
ton has never been celebrated as a
damager of fences, and outfielders do
not back up against the outer walls
when he comes tcthe bat. But those
who have studied the young fellow
closjly declare there has been a cer
tain element of misfortune in his- in
ability to get the pill placed safely.
In the city series with the Cubs he
failed to hit safely once, though he
played in every game. That was due
to hard luck. No one, with the possi
ble exception of Jack Pournier, hit
the ball more solid thumps in that
series than Breton. His attempts
were low, rakish smashes, but on
each occasion some infielder or out
fielder was standing in a position to
capture the sphere. The score book
shows that on two occasions Breton
stung the ball on a line at Heine
Zimmerman so hard that the big Ger
man was turned clear around. But he
clung to the pill and Breton lost a
pair of triples.
Breton is young enough to be ex
perimented with. If he can bat .250
or even .230, his defensive ability will
hold him in the game with the re
mainder of the infield capable of do
ing well in the attack.
Quinlan.the young outfielder picked
up from the coast on the training trip,
has shown all the qualifications of a
leadoff man since being attached to
the Sox. He has averaged a hit a
game, as well as a pass, and his base
stealing record is as good as that of
any man on the team. Whether he
will stick is another question, for.
