IS GOING STRONG
Veteran Has Stood Strain of
Eleven Seasons With Majors.
Prediction of Various Scribes That Ho
Would Bo Displaced at Third Baso
Not Yet Fulfilled Slow In
Rounding Into Form.
After a player has stood the gaff In
the major leagues for eleven years ho
Is labeled "alt In" tho first time he
shows a sign of slipping.
This was the sort of a "rawsborry"
Imntled to Heinle Zlr.i In 1017, even In
fo ro ho Kiit himself Into tho limelight
In the world's series by chasing1 ICddle
Collins home In that now famous
Marathon of GO feet, which was
promptly pointed out as n one-reel
thriller and given the title "I'm u Fast
er Man Than You Are, Heinle Zlm."
Last fall, after the (Hants had closed
their curtailed season, various hcrlbes
v , .?' ,
. i il .l
predicted that 1011) would find some
body else filling the shoes of the great
Kim at third base for the Giants.
New York scribes led tho gang who
expertly pointed out that the grent
one was on the skids; that his legs
were growing stiff and his throwing
arm turning to glass. Then they start
ed picking (ait a soft spot for Heinle
to light. Some chose first base for him,
and the ones who were less hopeful
relegated him to right field, just as
though John Mcdrnw would think foi
half a fioeond of displacing ti cruel,
young player like Uoss Young.
Heinle kept his puce through iil
tho long winter of 1018-10, hibernating
In tho Hronx and saying nothing. Hut
when tho time rolled around for con
tracts to be signed Elm visited the
ofllccs of the (Hants, accepted terms
without a whimper, and calmly told
Mcflraw that If he had ordered a now
third baseman he'd better ciwicel the
When tho Olnnts entrained for
Gnlnesvlllo to start spring trnlnlnf!
the veteran Zim was very much In evi
dence. He got Into a uniform and
started sawing wood In his own way,
taking his tlino and working hard to
get Into shape. Klght hours' work n
day In n Jersey shipyard during part
of tho winter had not done Zimmer
man any noticeable harm, but llkf
most of tho veterans, Zlni rounds lulr
shape slowly, and, llko most athlete?
of an aggressive nature who have a
touch or two of temperament, Zlnt
didn't give a tinker's rap what any
body thought about It. "I.ettem trj
displacing mo nt third base and there'll
bo n funeral for somebody," was the
way 551m looked at It.

of the three, IMdlo Foster Is the best.
Tho others aro Wllllo Keeler nnd Hal

"Foster Is the Mimrlest batter I over

position of the batter's feet Just where
ho hopes to hit, Just as a boxer gets a

watching his opponents feet. If you
see u right-hand batter's feet set for

can pitch fast Inside, and nlno times
