Bennie Kauff is beginning to hit
the ball solidly and frequently. Be
cause he bore a Federal league label?
Bennie was severely pannd by some
critics who saw red every time that
organization was mentioned. He did
not hit .300 and they jumped him.
Bennie never gave out a tenth of he
bunk credited to him in interviews.
Scribes with the New York team are
a unit in saying Bennie is a-regular
fellow, who knows his own short
comings and says frankly he would
like to be somewhere near as good
as Ty Cobb.
Kauff is a dandy hitter and can run
bases and- field. He is a fine ball
player and if he had a chance to ex
ercise some individuality would look
much better. The McGraw system
was never meant for a man of the
Kauff type.
John McGraw says Luther Taylor,
while bein the last deaf mute to
play in the big leagues, was not the
last "dummy." i
By Mark Shield's
UnheraTded, never mentioned in
black type, one outfielder on the
South Side is playing the most sen
sational game that section of the
city has looked at for some time. He
isn't Joe Jackson aind his name isn't
Hap Felsch is the superhuman
gent, and the ex-Milwaukee man is
doing everything any other outfielder
ever did, and doing it nearly every
day of the week. Felsch is a fine
ballplayer, one of the best garden
men in the Johnson circuit, yet little
is heard of him in the public prints.
Much space has been rfovnaH n
the marvelous fielding of John Col-
uns, yet eiscn is every bit as good
a ueienesive man as Shano and 70
points better as a batter. He can
travel to either side, come forward or"
go back after flies, and throws like
a rifle shot and with uncanny accu
racy. He is not given to the flashy
line throws that Joe Jackson exhib
its, but he bounces the ball to the in
field or any base with enough speed
and precision to stop runners.
Twice yesterday he made assists
and one broke a Cleveland rally and
left the score small enough ?to en
able the Sox to win. Another time
lie wenc aeep on a line drive and
made a great one-handed leap'ns
stab of the .ball. He poled a clean
single to count the first Sox run and
hit a bounder that resulted in the
pair that won.
This is no 'momentary flash on the
art of Felsch. He has been dOiPg
these things all season, but if you
are a newspaper and box score fan
you won't know anything about it
Hap is a clean ballplayer who takes
care of himself, regards his work se
riously and is trying every minute.
Jennings is having pitching trou
