White Sox. His hitting in the pinch
es recently has been remarkable and
frequently he has lieaded rallies.
Roth is not yet a finished fielder.
He lacks polish and goes after balls
awkwardly frequently. But he gets
them just the same and his errors
have been very few. He is learning
to come in fast on slow hit balls and
throw to first base from a stooping

do not attempt to take advantage of
his inexperience to try bunting down
