Fast Little Second Baseman "Was Tower of Strength to
Infield of Boston Braves; Did Good Work Earlier in
the Season for Philadelphia Club; Work as Member
of Braves Will Be Long Eemembered by Fans.
AIN'T IT A GRAND AND GLORIOUS FEELIN'?
ASEBALL fans have not forgot
ten that memorable last naif of
the season drive that won the
National league championship for the
Boston Braves In 1914 and the lm
portant part Johnny Evers Played in
it. They also have not forgotten the
lashing the Braves gave the Athletics
in the world series that fall by tak
ing four games in a row and how
sr.lendidlv Evers oerformed.
That was E.erss first year with
the Braves after he had been let
m by the Cobs. It was not be
lieved that his presence would make

Is said that it did.
TZir Braies were slow In ac
quiring that hustling spirit that
Kvers injects Into a team, but
after the players fell Into line
the club braced and went to the
top of the heap with a spnrt
that had never before been
equalled In baseball and that
earned for George stalling the
name of "miracle man.
Because of the wonderful influ
ence Evers had in making the Braves
cnampions, he and the Phillies are
objects of much attention now.
Kvers is a member of the Philadel
nhia club, having been released to
that outfit earl in July. Now
n arly all the ees of fandom are
centered on him and the team, won
dering whether his presence will
nave the same influence on the
Phillies that it had on the Braves.
Soon after Eers joined Pat Mo
r.,n s club it dirt not appear as if
he were going to make any differ

joining the team had the opposite
ffect, as it dropped out of second
place after staging a desperate battle

That however, is not to be con

come acustomed to Evers and his
aggressive style of playing. It takes
a little time for the men to adopt his
methods, as was shown in Boston.
The Phillies. Judging from their
recent ascension, have recovered
from their slump and are on the
road to duplicate the drive that
made Stalllngs and Ever fa
.iodk. Pat Koran's club la
limbing and according to all re
ports Is playing a stronger de
fensive game than ever before.
It is said that Evers has virtually
created a new infield with his clev
erness in shifting for batters, in
breaking up hit and run plays and
in having the pitchers twirl a cer
tain way to the opponents.
This is no reflection on the ability
of Moran. It is a mark of credit
to his wisdom. He realises the
value of Evens's brains on a club
and obtained him for almost that
reason alone. The pair have been
working and planning together every
day since Evers joined the Phillies
and results are beginning to snow.
Whether tne star secona naseman can
do the came for the Phillies as he
did for Boston remains to be seen. J
It wonld not be reasonable zor one
to expect Evers to be the factor on
the Phillies' roster that he was with
the Braves, first, ne is not tne
hitter he s as in 1914.
Second. Moran does not possess

pitchers. Third, Moran has not

Compared to him Fulton is fairly
well versed In the art of handling his

how a punch should be put over and
he knows something about defending
himself against legal ring tactics. He
is big and bony and he can hit with
both hands. That's Fulton.
Because of his technical superiority

when the time comes for this meeting
there may be a great manv fistic fol

to face any more of the rough stuff
that Morris was pulling, and he was
absolutely unable to use his knowl
edge of hitting the stop the btg man
