YANKS, BESET BY INJURIES,
IN CAME FIGHT FOR FLAG
By Mark Shields
Should the White Sox fail to take
three out of four games from the
league-leading Yankees they will be
overlooking a grand opportunity to
improve themselves in the standing
of the clubs. The Yan.is are in a bad
way and should be comparatively
easy for any team that plays bright
baseball and improves every oppor
tunity that comes its way. -
If Donovan can take his team
through the west and get back to his
home lot without losing ground he
will have performed a miracle, for
he has a club that is woefully
patched because of injuries to stars
of high degree.
His four regular outfielders Mai
sel, High, Magee and Gilhooley are
all on the hospital list High attempt
ed to play yesterday, but limped so
badly in the outfield that he had to
be lifted. A substitute is playing
third base and the pitching staff is
also on the hummer. Caldwell had
to stand the gaff yesterday because
Donovan had. no dependable man to
send to his rescue.
In the outfield1 were Rube Oldring,
a veteran who is slowing up; Mullen,
a first baseman, and Bauman, a sec
ond baseman. Even under these dif
ficulties the Yanks are furnishing in
terest to the fans through their
fighting determination and the way
they come from behind portends bet
ter things when the regulars are 0
back in harness.
Magee will be able to play here and
Maisel may also recover sufficiently
to go to work.
Reb Russell is an iron man, a will
ing horse who thrives on hard Work
and lots of it. But even the Texas
southpaw can be given too much to
do, as he plainly showed yesterday.
