Mattie McCue is on his way back to
stardom. He came through sensa
tionally last night at -Kenosha in a
bout with Freddie Hedftn, knocking
the Chicagoan out in the second
round. McGue resembled the novice
who set this part of the country by
the ears several months ago.
He discarded all the cleverness
Tom Jones tried to teach him and
whaled into Hedlin with flying arms.
The first round was even, but it was
quickly over in the second. McCue is
about ready for the lightweight divi
sion. As he stands now he is not in
the list of first four men in that class,
but should come from now on. This
knockout will give him confidence
and he is yet a very young man.
In the three other bouts of the Ke
nosha card, Johnnie Ritchie and
Frankie Conley drew, Jimmy Murphy
outpointed Joe Sherman in a slam
bang battle, and Jack Moran scored
a decisive victory over Joe Mace.

Manager Bresnahan of the Cubs
has made a change in his infield that
at first glance appears radical But
that is only because we have become
accustomed to seeing Zimmerman at
third base and Phelan at second. In'
reality, each man should improve a
little at his new position.
Phelan is a natural third baseman.
He always played there before com
ing to the Cubs and his style of de
fense was modeled on that demanded
of a third sacker. He gets squarely
in front of the ball, for the purpose
of knocking down hard hits, but does
not cover much ground going to the
right or left That is a fatal defect
for a second baseman to have, but of
minor importance among third
His arm is strong and he will have
no trouble shooting the pill across the
diamond to Saier.
Zimeran broke into the business as
a second baseman and was convert
ed into a third base guardian through
circumstances. He has been a good
man defensively, though hardly a
fielding star. He likes to move
around too much; but -this should be
to fiis advantage around the key
stone. Zim is a noble athlete when it
comes to going to his left side and
cutting down hits with his gloved
hand. He will coyer lots of ground
next to Saier. He also skids to the
right with ease and will put the bee
