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.
