MORIARTY IS f
RUMORED NEW i
DET. MANAGER!
Ty Cobb and George Sisler
Due for Ax, Accord
ing to Railbirds.
ST. LOUIS, Mo„ Oct. 8. Jack Mo- |
Alllster, now assistant to Trls Speak
er in Cleveland, is scheduled to sup
plant George Sisler in charge of the[
St. Louis Browns next year, with',
George Moriarty, now an umpire in
the American League, coming back
to the Detroit club on which he once,
played third base, successor to Ty1
Cobb, according to well founded gos !
sip out here.
McAllister was never a big league j
star, though he saw service with the
Cleveland club as a catcher. For
five years ho has been with Speaker,
in the role of coach and general]
handy man. He has plenty of pep
and is expected to put life into the
Browns, something they have not |
hail under Sisler. It is understood '
that McAllister goes to St. Louis on
Speaker's recommendation.
Moriarty was supposed to he slated ■
to succeed Sisler in St. Louis and
not till the Griffmen landed in De-1
troit did they hear that he was book-1
ed to succeed Ty Cobb as leader of
the Tigers. Cobb is said to be con-1
(emulating retirement from baseball i
altogether, taking up the easy life |
of a land owner and realtor in !
Augusta, Ga.
Ump Not Popular
McAllister's cheerful personality
makes him popular with the players
around the American League cir
cuit, but the same cannot be said
of Moriarty. Umpires seldom are
popular with players and Moriarty
is not one of the popular few, though
really he is a fine fellow and worthy
of a trial as a big league manager.
While McAllister never achieved
fame as a big leaguer, Moriarty
ranked among the best third Hackers
ever In the American League. He
was with the New York club for;
several years and then closed his
career with Detroit playing third
base and first base. He has been an 1
umpire for more than five years,
obtaining the position on the reconi-j
mendation of Clark C. Griffith, presi-;
dent of the Washington club.
Deal Talked Of
Just what will happen to Sisler!
nobody seems to know, though there]
are many conjectures. Some rumors i
have him going to the Griffs in a!
deal involving Joe Judge. Others!
have him slated to go to Philadelphia]
in a three-cornered deal involving
the Washington club. No verifica-1
tions can he obtained as to the truth ;
of these rumors. At any rate it is,
a foregone conclusion that Sisler is!
done as manager of the Browns.:
Where he play* next year is some
thing else again.
