Paul Des Jardien has been given his second trip to the minors by the Cleveland management As a big league pitcher Paul is a rattling good football rush. Eddie Rickenbacker must be an impatient bloke. He's just quit au tomobile racing, to become an' avia tor. According to the wise men noth ing is impossible, but what chance do you see for the Reds and Athletics tangling in the next world's series? Eddie Mahan isn't going to play professional baseball. He's going to stump for Wilson that's all. Speaking of speedy outfielders, there's Rube Oldring. "He's not as young as he used to be, yet the old boy covered the entire American league in one jump. Shakespeare's father spelled his name 16 different ways. Some of our ablest boxfighters have difficulty spelling their names one way. EDDIE COLLINS BIG FACTOR IN RECENT SOX SUCCESSES By Mark Shields With Eddie Collins batting as his r. natural ability warrants, left-handed pitchers no longer hold the same terrors for the White Sox as Eddie, like all the real stars of the game, can hit the flinging of either right or wrong handers. In the closing stages of the east ern trip, when Joe Jackson was slumping, Collins began to find the pill, and he hus been bitting consis tently ever sirifr. With this increase in batting has come a general rise in confidence onij-ie part of the South Side keystoner. When the ex-Mackman was in a slump earlier-in the season he was offering desperately at nearly every thing that was thrown. He was eager to crack out of the worst rut he had ever been in. Consequently, he was not only failing to hit, but also was not being passed as fre quently as usual, simply because he was too impatient to wait for the pitchers' liberality. Also, the heav ers held him in lower regard and did not bother to waste many bad balls. Notice flow the number of times Eddie is getting to first base because the opposing flinger fears his club. They do not pitch a good ball when it can be helped" and Eddie, confident now in his own ability, is content to wait for the right pitch. He is walk ing frequently, and every man who reaches first base is a potential run maker. FT Also, when Collins gets 'pn first base the aliens confront a man who can move around the paths with in telligence and speed, a combination that is not too frequent on the South Side. Some members of the cast have speed but lack brains, while others have the thought waves, but lack the legwork.
