ited, Leonard of the Boston Red So

only fellows to go through an entire
game.

tory, defeating Drummond A. C, 5
to 4. It was the fifth victory for the
.Tigers.
Braves open on the North Side this
afternoon, playing three games.
Saturday the Giants will come to
town for a four-game .set During
the New York series McGraw and
Tinker may start Mathewson and
Miner Brown, rivals of better days,
against each other. Matty has
pitched twice tihs season, but Brown
so far has not faced a batter. A bat

be a- great drawing card.
Johnny Ertle stopped Bobbie
Burns in the fourth round at 1 St

rounds at New York, outpointing him
in every one of ten dull rounds.
By Mark Shields
The most active, energetic ball
player on the North Side at the pres
ent time is a fellow who formerly
gave Cub managers more cause for
worry than any other five men. The
man who is doing the most fight and
scrapping for every victory, the man
who is going after every break that
will give the Tinkerites some ball
games, is a fellow who formerly
went about his work in a lackadais
ical manner, interested only in his
own individual average and a pay
check twice a month.
Heinie Zimmerman is his name.
You know it! Zimmerman is the
real white-haired boy, bringing joy
to Tinker, his playmates and all the
fans who gather on the North Side
each afternoon.
' Zim is as changed as any ball
player could well be. His sole idea
seems to be the common good, and
he is willing to step aside, out of the
spotlight, in order to advance the
Cub cause. He is playing the brand
of . baseball that looms up in stand
ing of the clubs.
But don't get the Idea that Heinia
has developed into a meek, woolly
lamb. Far from it. He is showing
more fight and aggressiveness than
for several seasons, but no longer ia
his belligerency misdirected. Now it
is aimed at the opposing club, as it
should be. No longer does he con
sider it a jewel in his crown to scrap
with a left-hander of his own club.
He is fighting every play. He is
seeking to take every extra base pos
sible on every ball he hits safely. He
is running out the soft bounders to
the infield, on wihch he formerly
scorned to exert himself. He is cov
ering an acre or two of ground
around his own position. shortatoD,
