In rang' ing over a vast expanse of ground, in throwing to bases, in fielding ground balls, in going back, for long drives and in . "playing the batter" it is; now conceded that Speaker' has never had a superior and but few -equals. There has never been any fielder that could do all the thing enumerated above as well as the Indian manager, and in addition he is one of the great est batters that ever shouldered a club, a grand base runner and a capable manager. Where or when has his., equal been seen? Speaker's swatting mark now is in the shadow of the well known .400. This season has tended to present him as. a famous slugger more than as the greatest defensive outpost of all time, yet when Tris hasnt been slatmming the ball for keeps he has been sneaking back on drives in his accustomed form. In fact the 1920 season thus far has shown Tris enacting a triple role and performing a feat that re calls to older fans the days of oth er famous playing leaders who not only piloted their teams out to ward the front, but also biased the way for the league in batting and fielding. Speaker's Grand Work. Features of Speaker's 1920 work include a total of 121 hits and 71 runs in the first half of the season. during which he failed to get a hlf in only 17 games. He haepprox imated this remarkable mean dur ing the closing half or the cam paign. This once had the extreme pleasure of making five safe hits in one contest and in two other engagements ho has made four hits. Threo blows per game were made by Tris in no less than 18 battles. The Indian chief incidentally chas ed seven files to death in one game and in four others successfully pur sued six such drives.- . More commonly known feats per formed by-Tris are his pace setting for American league batsmen this season with an average well nigh .400, and his unusual total of 117 runs, either of these performances being enough to make a star of any player. Tris, however, has turned out this exceedingly high class work in addition to managing tbe Cleveland team so aa tt make it a favorite contender for the pennant right up to the closing days of the race.

J Febeh Equate Trial As for native ability: Felach re ally does- not have to concede- a thing to Speaker, for Tris' reputa tion haa been exploited ' through hia long service of 12 yean and urouga ma participation In nu morons -world's , series. Felsch, however, has. been - doing every whit as good work aa Speaker, maklna averr allowasea far THm for several months ago' the Sox star set a new world's record for chances accepted in a season, and during the present campaign he has handled more work per game than the redoubtable Indian. A big reason way Tris has achieved such renown is mat ne never has had a manager, as he is of the impetuous, daring type of player, and while Felsch is no less courageous, he Is or the nature to look to the mana ger for suggestions and orders. Analyzing the figures above, one flnda that Felsch has made eight more hits, in 10 less games than Myers and that his blows hare been worth nearly so bases more. Myers' only claim to superiority in batting Is his ability to compile triples, or which he has 26. He has made 31 sacrifices to 16 for Felsch, bat the Sox player is essentially a slugger and his place in the bat ting order gives him few opportun ities to lay 'em down. Felsch, however. Is the boy who knows how to grab the drives aimed in his general direction. On three occasions Oscar has clutched seven putouts ana on as 'many more he has subdued six high ones, He has averaged 2.90 chances per game, compared wish 2.69 for My-j ers and 2.57 for Speaker. Felsch has specialized In - stopping base runnlrs, having halted 28, or 10 more than Myers, although Myers was In nine more games than Os car, ' Oscar Steady Baiter. Felccii's batting has been mark ed by steadiness, as he relies on a regular flow of awats without loag intermissions. Figures show his greatest slump to have lasted two successive games and only four periods of depression of this kind have been suffered by him. Felsch's biggest single, collection of safeties was. four and In 12 games he ob- Myers is about 90 points below Speaker in batting and 30 shy oi Felsch's mark, thus suffering a disadvantage in comparison with his prospective rivals right off the reel. He surpasses both' In triples and sacrifices, but leads both of them in the number of base run ners thwarted by pegs from the outfield. High lights of Myers' 1920 labors include two games In which he had seven putouts, five that netted six flies and 16 games in which he made three hits. To summarize tbe center field situation, one must admit that My ers Is a highly desirable outfielder, a .300 hitter and a rare player, but be can not hit or defend his posi tion as ably as either Speaker or Felsch. In short, the middle patch In the impending world's series will be a strictly American league vantage point, no matter if it is Cleveland, or Chicago that faces Brooklyn..
