plunging, varied occasionally by a
clever forward pas.

REMARKABLE RISE OF HEIMIE WAGNER FROM HELL'S KITCHEN
TEAM TO CAPTAINCY OF VVGRLD'S CHAMPIONS, BOSTON RED SOX
.: x - v. -
J 4 .
Just howr high an ambitious Toy,
blessed with ability, can climb in ba.se
baJl, was never demonstrated more
gorcibly than by Heine Wagner, the
hustling1 little Held leader of the
Boston Red Sox.
About 15 years ago Billy Roden
bach, former amateur middleweight
boxing champion, managed and play
ed with a nine on New York's upper
west side. The team was to play a
formidable club in New Jersey and the
day before the game the third base
man went to bed, mighty sick, caus
ing dismay in the organization, for it
wasn't easy to diff up a good infielder
on .hort notice.
Rodenbach had given up hope of
making any sort of a showing In 'the
game when a friend met him and
said. "Billy, there's a kid down in
Hell's kitchen that looks like the
goods. Go take a look at him."
Rodenbach went to the historic
gTound and at 39th sL and Eleventh
av. found a game for the "champion
ship of the kitchen," in progress.
Rodenbach glued his eyes on the
third baseman of on team and was
impressed with the way the kid scoop
ed all sorts of drives and sailed .them
across to the. first baseman.
Between innings Rodenbach ap
proached the kid and asked him to
go, over to Jersey the next day to play
with his club.
"Aw, gvvan. I can't play wit vou big
guys," replied the little fellow.
"I'll take a. chance on you. Come
on and I'll shp you a half dollar."
The boy's eyes widened and he con
sented. Xext day the kid's. atoo.s and
liishtnins throw; materially helped
; Rodenbach' team win the g-ame. The
jboy became a fixture on the team and
;was a semi-pros star until he vaulted
iinto the professional game.
Last year, after one of the world's
series games between Boston and
New York, Rodenbach jumped from

his gout and shook hands with one of
the Ited Sox. After some general talk
"I suppose you have done pretty
well this season."
"Yes," answered the player, "with
my salary as player, extras for acting
as captain and my share of the world's
series, I'll clean up about $10,000."
"Good for you." said Rodenbach,
and you're earning it. It's different
from the day I slipped vou haJf a dol

"Sure," said the player laughing,
"but do you know, Billy, that 50 cents
looked as his: to me that day as a
