Walsh as First Baseman Connie Mack Is giving Jimmy Walsh, outfielder, a try at fltst base. It la not probable, that tho Athletics' leader la thlnklns seriously of shifting Stuffy Mc Innla to third, as soma believe, but merely pursuing lila policy of preparedness. Harry DavIh can scarcely bn expected tn step Into the broach us lip did three jears ago. Mack would hardly undertake to "make over" two players, creating two problems, when now bo faces only one developing a third baseman. Neverthe less, It should be remembered that some of the Btars of tho gume havo been made over. The most notable Is Wagner, of the Pirates. From a mediocre outllelder he became the greatest of short fielders. Danny Murphy was a product of Mack's shift. Walsh Is u promising player, so much so that after disposing of him once Mack lost little time In bringing him back to tho Athletics' fold. He has not the "reach" of Daubert or Schmidt, but li rangier than Mclnnls. He Is young. As a utility first sacker he should make good. Sherwood Magee has recovered from IiIh slight Injury, caused by a full, and h again In active practice with the Braves at Macon. Another Alclnnis? Ilunny Drier Is making; a strenuous hid for first sucker's berth for the Chicago hite Box After one practice came In Callfurnia Manager Rowland put Drier on the first souad and put Jack Kournler on the second. Ilrlef haa made a touple of home runs and wma other healthy wallops since the Sox landed In California. "Rip" Hagerman, pitcher, has Jumpel back to the Cleveland Americans. ThlS action was taken after the youth had signed a contract with Tinker to play with the Chlfeds. Hagcrman's lawjer advised the second jump. Mel Sheppard's retirement Is a distinct loss to the athletic world. His Injury last month puts him out of sports per. manently. Sheppard holds ejght world's championships and has won more than t00 merals. James' Idea of Air. James Big Bill Juniaji la now the only Brave niUwlng. Pitcher Strand reached Macon yteterday.
