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.
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
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.

They Clashed for Blood in Series 24 Years Ago
„ 191 k
Two of the greatest ballplayers of all time met a week or so ago at Paso Robles, Cal., where the Pirates
are in training—Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner. Left to right in the picture are George Gibson, manager of
the Pirates, and Ty and Honus.
SHADOWS of the world series
of 1909 marched across the
diamond a week or so ago at
Paso Robles, Cal., where Ty Cobb,
Honus Wagner and George Gib
son were reunited. Cobb called at
the Pirates’ training camp where
Gibson, who caught in that event
ful series, was drilling his team
for anew pennant campaign, with
the help of Wagner, now a coach,
the greatest shortstop of all time.
The Pirates finally beat De
troit in that series twenty
four years ago, largely through
the great pitching of Babe Adams,
who won three games. In that
series Wagner, held by many to
be the equal of Cobb, outshone
the Georgia Peach in every de
partment of the game. Wagner’s
series batting average of .333 was
topped only by Delehanty’s .346.
