Eddie Collins Makes Interesting Selection Hot Corner Pastimers Are Promising Sports Sidelights Picked Up at Random T7DDIE COLLINS, part owner and business'manager of the Boston Red Sox, gives an interesting slant on how he rated the players whom he saw play during his long career in the American League and even before he took up profes sional ball when he was a collegian and a regular patron at major games. Collins has been player, manager and coach and now steps up to the executive department to endeavor to rebuild the Red Sox as well as cut in on club earnings. Asked to pick the best pastimers he ever had seen in action in the junior major circuit, Eddie chose the following well-known stars of the past and present for the different positions: Pitchers, Walter Johnson, Rube Waddell, Chief Bender and Lefty Grove; catchers, Ray Schalk and Mickey Cochrane; first base, Hal Chase; second base, Napoleon Lajoie; third base, Jimmy Collins <no kin to Eddie); short stop. Bobby Wallace; left field, Babe Ruth; center field, Al Simmons; right field, Ty Cobb. That's quite an assemblage of talent, all top flight players when at their peak. Naturally, other diamond experts would disagree with Collins in some positions, but on the whole his choice represents a powerful aggregation of all-around skill, including murderous batting and a pitch ing staff that hardly could be equalled. Fans are requested to bear in mind Eddie picked from the American league only. He never played in the National loop and confines his selections to his own league. Another thing, Collins believes the Chicago White Sox of 1919, the team fsome players) that later became the Black Sox, was tlv* best club he ever played on. He says he thinks the Hose of that year were stronger than any of the triumphant Philadelphia Athletic machines that won world championships five times. ana ana BIG LEAGUES WELL STOCKED AT THIRD BASE BUSINESS is brighter than usual at the hot corner in the major league this year. Promising third basemen are coming up in such numbers that the old custom of assigning a decaying shortstop to the job may be discontinued. Some of the youngsters are running into stiff competition from older men who have been established stars so long that it is difficult to dis place them. Cecil Travis, slugger from the Southern Association, might outhit Ossie Bluege of the Senators, but nobody is going to beat the Washington player as a fielder. Odell Hale is a whale of a prospect as a big leaguer, but he is going to find it hard to displace Willie Kamm at third base for the Cleveland Indians. Hale starred with Toledo last year. Ossie Bluege’s brother Otto, is the life of the Reds’ training camp at Tampa. Otto is getting to look more like Ossie every day, both in physical appearance and actions on the diamond. The youngster took a few lessons from his brother during the winter. Joe Morrissey is the Other third sack candidate at Cincy. Pie Traynor's job isn’t exactly threatened by young Bill Brubaker University of California star, but Bill will be kept around for a while on the strength of his bright showing in training camp with the Pirates. Jimmy Dykes of the White Sox has enthusiastic praise ior his suc cessor at the third base job with the Athletics—Frank Higgins who starred in the Pacific Coast League last year. Mack is confident Higgins will make the grade. Tlie Braves have a brilliant prospect in Dick Gyselman, also from the Coast League. If Bill McKechnie decides to accept Gyselman, a nice bundle of cash will take a transcontinental trip, and training maneuvers indicate that Gyselman is in. Bucky Harris is experimenting with one of the tallest men ever to wear an infielder’s glove, Henry Greenberg. The Jewish bov came up as a first baseman, but Harris figures he will add a valuable batting punch to the team at third. Henry is 6 feet 3%, weighs 210 but gets around fast. He is a popular new Tiger. Manager Marty McManus will hold down the third station for the Red Sox. Woody English for the Cubs, Joe Stripp for the Dodgers if he signs; Pinkie Whitney for the Phillies. Johnny Vergez or Travis Jackson for the Giants Sparky Adams or Frankie Frisch for the Cardinals Art Schaiein for the Browns and Joe Sewell or Lyn Larry for the Yankees.
