WEAVER AND TERRY PLAYING
FINE BALL FOR SOX
By Mark Shields
Fred McMullin is a fine fielding
third baseman and able to do his
part of the hitting, but it is doubtful
if Manager Rowland will shatter the
combination he now has working at
third base and short
Buck Weaver is playing a sterling
bit of( ball around the difficult cor

in. his direction, and the longer
throw across the diamond is to his
advantage, for Buck has a powerful
arm that is just suited to the extend

amount of ground toward short, and
this gives Terry an opportunity to
place himself nearer the second bag,
where he can cut down hits that
usually skid through that section for
safeties.
Terry, in his own territory, is a
wonder. The American league does
not boast a better fielding short
fielder than the coast youngster.

bounders when a runner is trying to
count from third is one of the out

throwing is marvelously accurate.
This fielding prowess of Terry has
long been recognized, but he was
billed as a weak hitter. Zeb isn't
smashing any fences, but his hits are
fairly frequent and a goodly propor
tion of them are made in the pinchesr
