White Sox Seem Destined to Climb Notch or Two

SAN ANTONIO. March 31—Kid
Gleason used to have a ball team
In Chicago tn&t was hard to beat.
But In the years that have passed
since Gandil and Reisberg and
Felsch and Jackson and the others
conspired to deceive, the Chicago
White Sox have fallen into decay.
Today, I watched a team here
In the rebuilding. A new team,
full of new lire and life. The Chi
cago White Sox were battling the
Giants In spring training camp,
tut for all the ardor of their
playing, this might have been the
world aeries.
"The apirit" Donie Bush told
me, "ia the best that I ever saw
on any ball club!
"This team finished next to las:
last year. They batted seventh
and fielded fourth But we have
made some very Important changes
We have added power and pitching
Give us the same defense we had
last year, or a little better, and we re
on the way up."
Smack ’Em Sinead in Left
Bush, to begin with, has added
an important slugger, a natural
hitter, in Smead Jolley, bought j
from the coast league. Jolley will
start In left, with Reynolds in
center and Watwood in right. Jol
ley batted .387 last year; Reynolds
hit .317 and Watwood .202. Besides,
there is Jim Moore, a young man
from Dallas who pounded Texas
League pitching for an average oi
.364 last season. Dave Harris, who
hit .348 for Providence and .366
for Portland last year, is another
outfield candidate. Alex Metzler.
whose hitting fell off last year, is
the holdover.
In the infield, at first base,
where we should properly begin
just to be formal. Is C. Arthur
Shires, of whom you may have
heard something betore now
Arthur bats in the American
League better than he did in the
cauliflower league, as his mark of
.312 for last year reveals. John
Clancy is tnc unaerstudv.
Cisaell Improved at Second
Bush has decided to start Cur
Kill at second, believing his play
ing will be improved there. The
expensive young man from Port
land showed improvement last
year over his first year, and looks
even better yet this season.
A fight is on for the shortstop
, Job. Hunnnefield may start. But
Bush is fond of Ernie Smith, the
i boy from Birmingham, who smack
f* ed Southern League pitchers for
a mark of .302 last year. I think
that eventually Irving Jefferies,
Dallas, will be the regular short
stop of the White Sox. He played
at both third and short last year,
had a good fielding mark, and
batted .305.
At third is another expensive
young man. Willie Kamm. who
cost $100,000 seven years ago. There
U no indication that Willie will be
displaced this year. He hasn’t earn
ed that $100 000 worth just yet,
ano Donie wants to give him every
opportunity to do so.
The pitching of Faber, Thomas.
Lyons. Young Ed Walsh and Hal
McKain is finding competition
among as nice a set of >’ounfc
\ pitchers as iren in any of the big
league camps. A big long drink
of-water of a southpaw. Cecil Pat
Caraway, looks promising Another
who seems sure to stick is Vic
Frasier from Dallas, a right-hander
’ •* ho injured his hip in practice the
other day, but is showing signs or
catching provided by Berg.
Autrv and Johnny Riddle, from
Indianapolis, the team technically
looksas though it should do better
than seventh In the American
League. _

Mickey Cochrane, sparkplug catcher
for the Philadelphia Athletics, says
there are about 20 American leag- j
uers who are always a threat when j
on base. Those most likely to try
to steal, he says, are: Yankees— \
Lazerri and Combs; Washington—j
Rice. Goslin, Myers and Bluege;
Boston—Rothrock and Barrett; Chi-:

Johnson. Of the Athletics, Coch* .
rane lists Mipler as the most danger
ous on the paths.
If Manager Bob Shawkey was be
ginning to view with alarm the fact
that his New York Yankees were
doing little hitting this spring he
should be relieved now.
Yanks Hitting
In their last two games the Yanks
have pounded out 29 hits, a fair
share of them for extra bases. Babe
Ruth pounded out four safe hits

These two teams are the leaders,
