of Baseball Phenoms at Mobile

OB ILK, Ala.. March 29.—Two new tuiseball phenoms have l>oen entered by
th« St. Louis Krowns. Then" may be more, for one can never tell just
how far a young rookie is going to jump.
In the 1922 edition of Lee Fohi's pennant entry propping at Mobile,
Ala., there are 13 pitchers, two catchers, two infielder* and one out
fielder making their debut into major league society.
The two who already have attracted attention are Infielder Kugene
Robertson and Outfielder Cedric l>ur»t.
Robertson originally is a graduate of the corner lots of St Louis. lie
made the enormous leap from municipal baseball to the Browns in the
spring of 1919.
He tamed the entire season tinder Jimmy Burke for his experience
course and then had two seasons of minor league ball.

I feel that my victory has entitled
me to auch conakleraUon. I regard
niyaelf aa the logical contender for
the till*, deaptte my alae.
What 1* more. 1 hava hatter than
an even chance to win the title.
I have no thought Oiat 1 conld
knock liemp.wy out. That wouldn't
be my plan of battle. I would fight

»*ms. Gibbons haa a punch, but It
waa of no use to him.
I am honest when I aay that 1
feel that I can outbox I>einpeey Ic
a bout of 12 to It rounds.
There would always be the chance
nf a knockout by Dempaey of course
That would be the beat t>ct. There
waa always that chance Id my
bout with Oltihona.
1 am honest when T aay I think I
can outhox Dempaey. Of one tiling
I am positive. I would make a far
better fight than did Carpentler.
