BECK, MOLINE PITCHER, IS
DRAFTED BY PHILADELPHIA
George Beck, the Moline youth, who
has made a rapid rise as a baseball
pitcher during the last two years, was
drafted by the Philadelphia Nationals
yesterday. It had been supposed that
either Cincinnati or the St. Louis
Browns would get him. Beck played
with the Tigers here for several years
and in the fall of 1911 had a trial
with Henderson in the Kitty league.
In 1912 he played with that club all
season and last spring he went to
Nashville, where he made a brilliant
showing. He is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. John E. Beck, 1515 Twenty-fifth
