The Funniest Baseball
Play I Ever Saw-No. 3
BY LARRY GARDNER.
Third Baseman, Boston Red Sox.
The funniest thing I ever saw
on a baseball field was a pitcher
Sliding clear past third base and
spiking s coacher, and at the
same time preventing his team
from making what might have
been considered a serious error.
The play came up in a game
between the Red Sox and St.
Louis Browns. Patsy Donovan
waa our manager at the time and
he was coaching at third base.
We needed a run, and Bill
Bailey was making It bard for us
to get It. We had a runer on
second base when a long fly was
bit to right center.
Donovan signalled the runner
to come on after the catch and,
as the outfielder hauled in the
ball the runner sprinted for third,
and the center fielder threw to
nail him. It was evident that the
play was going to be a close one.
Bailey came tearing across to
back up the third baseman. Just
aa he reached the base line his
feet slipped and he fell sliding
feet high ln the air straight at
Donovan who was too interested
la the welfare of the runner to
see Bailey. Bailey slid straight
Into Donovan, spiked him and
brought him down on top of him
self. Meanwhile the runner slia
to third, the ball took a crooked
hop, got past the baseman and

bout with Champion Freddie

NEW YORK. Feb. 26—"Watch
the White Sox and the Yanks this

find them a whole lot nearer the
top than did last October. May

This was the warning given at
a recent league meeting here by
a veteran manager who has seen
seasons come and go—many more
than he cares to admit.
"For why?" he echoed. "Just
this—the Sox are due to make
things hot for the winner because
they have all the requisites of a
darned good team; and the Yanks

This Fielder Has More Friends I
Than Any Player-Who Is He?|
Here's another member of the All-Star Masked team. He's
the fifth player that we have exhibited. If you haven't entered
the contest yet, get the last four copies of The Time-, turn to tha
Spore Page, and study the pictures.
This man Is a cener fielder. He once stole 100 bases or
more in one season aad ln one other year he butted better than
.825.
He always catches them with Ids hands turned up and held
close to Ids breast. His catches while sliding forward may help
yon recall him to mind. He always was what is know as a
"dead right field hitter," although his averages show him one of
the best that ever played In the game.
He probably has more friends than any man who ever
played baseball, not excepting Kelly.
