MITCHELL, THE MAN BEHIND THE BRAVES,
IS LAUDED FOR HIS WORK BY STALLINGS
New York, Nov. 25.-—Baseball fans
in Oshkosh, Painted Post, Colioos, and
other outlying precincts have heard
all about the miracles wrought by
George 8tailings. They know what
Johnny Evers has accomplished for
the Boston Braves and what Hank

it waa in Kokomo, Kankakee. Keo

Know Who Mitchell la?
Nevertheless and notwithstanding,
wo venture to assert that not one
baseball fan in ten knows who Fred
Mitchell is. Mitchcll's name appears
among the list of twenty-six Boston
players who split up nearly S76.000
tor beating the Athletics. He was
a big factor in Boston's sensational
victory, and George Stalling* says he
is entitled to ten shares of the pplce
money Instead of one.
Mitchell Is no less a mystery to the
small town f«n tiinn he is to a great
majority of' enthusiasts who saw the
Braveu perform in National league cit

needles to know who this "Mysterious
Mitchell" Is, we will tell yon. He
once worked for Connie Mack, is a
former Yankee catcher, and now has
a job for life with George Stallings,
whoso man Friday he is. Next to Kv.
ers, Stalling* gives Mitchell more
credit for molding the Braves to a
great team than- any other member
of that remarkable family.
After the third game of the world's
series Stallings was standing in the
lobby of the Hotel I'laza in Boston
receiving the congratulations of base
ball men from all over the country.
A smooth featured, swarthy, stocky
man of about 85 strolled along. He
nodded to Stallings and did not even
stop to join in the conversation.
Here's What 'Stallings Thinks.
"You fellows have a lot to say
about me," remarked Stallings to
some baseball writers, "and you have
given a lot of publicity to members
of my team, but you have all over
looked one of my stars. There he
goes. I consider Fred Mitchell the
most valuable lieutenant any man
ager ever had. His coaching of my
pitchers Is responsible as much as any
other factor for the wonderful suc
cess of the Braves. Mitchell was the
first man I hired when Jim Gaffncy
Biigasred me to manage the Bravf«

made, considering what he cost mo.*'

member of the Athletics waa the forc
ing in of the winning rim by a base
on balls in an extra innings game
with the St. Louis Browns, who gave
the Athletics a hard run for the pen
nant in 1902. Later he drifted to
Boston, and his last engagement as a
big league pitcher was with the Phil
lies. He dropped back to the minors
and became a eatehnr.
Resurrected by "Miracle Man."
When Stallings managed the Yan
kees he brought Mitchell back into
fast company as a catcher at the hill
top Fred participated in the city se
ries between the Giants and Yankees
in 1910 after Stallings was ousted.
The next season he went back to the
International league and toiled at
Rochester and Buffalo until he waa
again promoted by Stallings.
In 1912 Stallings was in charge at
Buffalo and Mitchell was his chief
aid. Stallings always gave Mitchell
credit for the great showing of the
Yankee pitchers in W10 when the
hurling staff at the Hilltop was con
sidered the best in the American lea
gue and Russell Ford was the hoad
Players Appreciate Worth.
Stallings signed a Boston contract
in the fall of 1912.
"President Gaffney told me to go
as far as I liked in building my team,"
said Stallings, "We traded and
swapped until only a few of
the old players were left. At the end
of my first season in Boston we had
a fair staff of pitcher*. Mitchell had
been on the Job. Then came the op

Made. Rudolph Great Pttchcr.
"Rudolph was a good pitcher when
he joined us, but Mitchell made him
a better one: in fact, I believe he
developed Rudolph from a good pitch
er into a great, one. He took James,
a mere boy. and taught him how to
use his stuff. You know what James
did this season. Tyler was another
who received the benefit of his coach
ing, and right now he is putting Da
vis and Strand through a process that
will make them stars next season.
"Mitchell can teach pitchers as
good a half-balk motion as I ever saw.
This season Tyler, Rudolph and
James all held runners close to first
base by using this motion. Fred help
ed James with the spit ball delivery,
taught them all the value of a good
slow ball, and impressed oh the
youngsters the value of. 'mixing 'em
"Another thing: Mitchell has been
a great help to me In preserving the
spirit of enthusiasm and team work.
He Is loyal to the club and popular
with the boys. In this series his pic
ture was not often flashed upon the
screen but just the same he was as
valuable to me as he had been during
the regular season. Fred Mitchell has
a job as long as I remain in baseball."
