Tyras Raymond Cobb -will begin his
fourteenth year as a major league
ballplayer in April. He is now in
his thirty first year. For many years
he has reigned supreme as the greatest
player in baseball. For years he
has been the super-ballplayer. He
has had so serious rivals in his many
fields of endeavor. Now and then
some star has come along and chal!

always emerged at tne top. r.ven
when Trls Speaker took the hatting
lead from him. he remained ahead In
so many other lines that his supremacy
was not questioned.
But the time has come to seriously
contemplate the day when Cobb can
no longer outdistance all his teammates.
The super-star has not yet begun
to fade but it has passed the
meridian and must gradually grow
Will there be another super-ballplayer
to step into Cobb's shoes as
the idol and wonder of all ball fans ?
Before going into this let's analyze [
the .qualities a super-ballplayer must'
He must be young. He must have
baseball brains, and be a lightning
quick thinker. He must possess a
great throwing arm and must be fast
on his feet. - He must have an accurate
batting eye.
But he must have more .than this.
He must have the ambition to push

which will not admit defeat
in. spite of obstacles. He must
have self-confidence enough to know
he is the greatest ballplayer in the
world without being egotistical about
There is one young ballplayer who
has most of these requirements and
is rapidly developing others.
George Sisler, pitcher, first baseman.
outfielder, baserunner. .350 batter,
is the future super-ballplayer. If
he retains his ambition and if he gdt
more fire into his play.
Cobb Is the most dangerous uaserunner
In baseball, not because he is
the speediest runner, but because he
has the determination to steal bases.
Cobb is the greatest hitter in baseball
not because he is the greatest natural
hitter, nor because he has the best
batting eye, but because he uses
brains and determination with Ms natural
and-'physical assets.
eGorge Sisler has everything Cobb
has physically. He is a better fielder
than Cobb. He has not yet developed
the determination and fire that has
made Cobb the most wonderful of all
ballplayers. Perhaps he will never develop
it to the extent Ty has.
But watch Sisler.
He is on Cobb's trail as a batter, as
a ba3erunner. as a collector of extra
base hits. He's the next super-ball
player if he wants to be; if be cares
to work as Cobb has worked to get
where he Is.

Factory Building- Will Not'
Interfere With Athletic
South Side Park will Hkoly be thc\
scene of many more interesting ath-1
letic events this summer. Because of ;
the construction of the large factory!
by the Interwoven Mills Company,'
which was to have begun' enwly this'
spring, it was thought that the big i
W. & J.-W. V. U. football game played
here last fall would be the final ath-1
letic eTent to he played at South Side. |
There has been quite a bit of delay 1
in the construction of the factory and
from prospects now it is very proba- j
ble that South Side Park will be open i
the entire summer^for any baseball;
and track events that might be sched-:
uled. As yet the Interwoven Company I
has taken no steps whatever toward '
the actual construction of their fac-!
tory. Evpn after the company has be-1
gun the construction of tho building }
it will be some time before it will j
interfere witb games that might be
plavsd on the mam part of the field.
The big W. V. TJ.-W. & J. football
game for nest fall is scheduled for :!
Fairmont. According to authorities : I
there is certain to be an athlectic ; j
field somewhere in Fairmont for the : j
big game, should the construction of j j
the Interwoven building at South Side |
interfere writ the game, a field in e
some other part of the town will be i
provided. It is believed, however th~t
the big 19IS football game will take
place at South Side Park.
