RISBERG HAS NERVE DOESN'T
FALTER IN PINCH
By Mark Shields
' During yesterday's game with
Cleveland, during which the White
Sox fielding was porous on numer
ous occasions, there were some cries
from the stand for Zeb Terry when
Swede Risberg, the new shortstop,
was in difficulty.
These, of course, were changed to
yelps oPadulation for he new short
fielder when he opened the ninth in
ning with a screaming triple and
scored the only run of the game on
Eddie Collins' sacrifice fly. The hit
made Swede a hero and his fielding
mistakes were forgotten. Such is
the humor of a baseball crowd.
But previous to this hit Risberg
had showed his fitness to hold down
his job. In the seventh inning a ball
went through him wfth a man on
second. It was scored a hit, but
could have been as fairly labeled a
boot. Then in the eighth Risberg
booted another with Speaker on first
with two out and gave the Indians a
big opening.
But on the very next pitch Guisto
hit sharply and deep to short The
ball required quick and accurate
handling. All of whidh Risberg did,
retiring tne side with a rifle-like
throw to Gandil. He had forgotten
all about the previous boots. They
didn't wejgh on his mind and affect
his playing.
This is" one of the true tests of
courage and Risberg stood it as well
as a veteran of many campaigns.
Cleveland has a good ball team
this season and one that will make
its power felt before the end of the
flag hunt. Jim Scott had them puz
zled at the bat, even though his sup
port was slipshod, but the Cleveland
people were in no mood to quit They
battle with confidence and make con
siderable noise on the field
