the Best TSiir
Is no longer In his prime, so that "lets
him out," oven as to fielding. Loach
fields his .position beautifully and
throws well, but ho Is handicapped bv
lack of stature. Ills reach Is short, so.'
he covers less ground than some other
men, and his batting should bo batter.
That lets him out. Devlin does not get
the piizo because ho Is not a player
of uniform excellence. lie bus "off
days" that mar his record. When ho
Is good ho Is very, very good, but when
ho Is bud ho thinks nothing of fumbling
an easy drive and throwing tho pill out
of tho lot, Devlin's batting, however,
Is a powerful factor on many occa
sions, Devlin hi of tho highest typo of
ball playor," don't forget th.it. Ho
bristles with nervous energy, und it Is
tho nervous man who works hard,
largely through Instinct and not mere
ly becuuso If' Is necessary. Devlin Is
ono of the hardest workers in tho major

Ho throws as strongly and us iicoiirato-

Iron steps which led lo the, train shed

platform, some shouting advice and
more or less pleasant comment after
him. Some sportively Inclined per
sons offered bets In a loud voice on
his chances of catching tho "train,

of having "won mil."
