"If you do that," this fan said, "you'll find a big majority voting for Milan." Mebbe he's right. We'll never know the result of that voting, but it we wait long enough we may be informed by Mr. Griffith what his choice will be. Meanwhile, until Mr. Griffith does speak words of constimmate wisdom, we might write a bit about Zeb Milan. whom we delight te know. Came Hero in 1907. Jesse Clyde Milan, of Linden. Tenn... was bought by the Washington club on August 28. 1907 from Wichita, In the Western Association. He had be gun playing professional baseball In 1905 with Clarksville. In the North Texas League, finishing the season with McAllister, in the Oklahoma State League. Beginning the 1904 season, the fu., ture candidate for managerial honors in the Capital was with Shawnee In the Oklahoma State League, going to Wichita in midseason. He played sixty-two games in the outfield that year with Wichita. Zeb broke into the game as a short stop. He was a thin, spindly lad in those days. How do we know all this? Zeb told us himself. He likes to hark back those days wk en he was trying to make a living on the prairies. In. dead, late years have found him win tering in Carksvile, Tex., the town which maw his debut in professional baseball. Too Lght to NI. Zeb was so small and light that his greatest weakness. was his hitting. Yes, and baserunn used -to bump him off the m= cushibn. Thit was the reason few his going to the garden, where he was datined to do his finest work as a major leaguer. A batting average of , . 3*ith Shawnee advanced- him to Wle ta and it was his hattini average of .34 in 114 games with Wichita that had much to do with hie coming to Wash ington. Playing with Cantilon and McAleer, s& flashed to the front as a flelder. It was not till Clark Oriffith Ut a winning team on the field In 112 that Milan rerlly game into his own as an all-around big league star. In 1912 Zeb was a baerunning fool. He stole tighty-eight bases and forced Ty Cobb's f of ei ry-three in 1911 into the shos. at record sur vived until 1916. when Cobb ran wild and swiped ninety-eight cushions. So far as records go, that is probably the only big league mark Zeb has ever attained. Seine Persuel Staff. Milan is happily married and has a couple of youngsters. He has his fami ily with him in Washington during the season and has a wide circle of friends. Among the players Milan. Is uni versally esteemed. He is quiet. thinks a lot before saying anything, unless it happens to be about hunting or fish ing. Then he waxes most voluble. He is considerable of a kidder, espfcially toward windbags, of which the Wash Ington club han always had its share. Toward youngsteis Milan is most considerate. We might say a lot along this line. We may may it tomorrow or the next day, giving an. insigh tinto the man better thany anything else. We have known Zeb Milan for ten year.. In all that tim.' he has ring true in big and little things. He Is a friend of the quiet kind. AEm annLs. no banners ,mnakes no idle promises, but his word is good for all he has. That's all-about* Zeb for today.
