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.
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.
