Three years ago Leonard "King"
Cole was the big kick in the National
league, the idol of the hour, and his
name a houshold word. We all weie
hearing about him then, the barber
pitcher who practically won the pen
cant for the Cubs and who copped the
one game the Cubs won in the world
series that season. And then he sud
denly faded. The season following
he showed nothing of his o.d speed
and form and the Cubs let him go to
Pittsburg. Fred Clarke thought Cole
still had the stuff. But Cole looked
even poorer with Pittsburgh and he
was finally released to Columbus In
the American association. It was
last season that Cole joined Colum
bus. One of Cole's teammates at Colum
bus was a big pitcher who was in the
same boat with Cole. George Me
Quulian had pitched some beau'itul
ball for Philadelphia and Cincy, but
he. too, had slowed up in much the
same manner and had been hurried
away to the minors. However, this
season McQuillian seemed to take a
new lease of life and showed gleams
of his old-time form. In fact once
started he didn't seem to know where
to stop, and simply played hob with A.
A. batting averages. McQuillian was
the star twirler of the league. Ah:
the p'.ot thickens.
What is the connection between
Leonard Cole and George McQuillian?
you ask. Just this! McQuillan was
grabbed by Pittsburgh. Orabbed.
seized, snatched, captured, dragged
away! And in the meanwhile the
pitching of Leonard Cole had under
gone considerable Improvement. In
fact, at the time McQuillian left he
and Ccle had been about neck and
neck for the pitching honors. With
McQuillian gone. Cole remained the
only heir to his throne and immedi
ately became known as the niftiest
huner in the big minor league. All
eyes were turned on Cole, who bora
the laurels meekly, yet with an air of
gentle pride and prepossessing gen
Cole at present is busily engaged in
turning out records. He is making
all manner of records. For the past
month or so he has allowed an aver
age of only two runs to a game, win
ning eight out oft ten of hi3 games.
And not long ago at Milwaukee he
pitched a no-hit affair that brought
him to the notice of all the big league
managers. All of whom have indicat
ed an intention of trying to secure his
services. He is now being eyed by
most all of the majdr league clubs.
"King" .Cole will no doubt follow in
the footsteps of McQuillian and come
back to perform in the big show.
