He had a move to first huso that constantly bud the base rimners up In the air. With Walsh working and the famous Hilly Sullivan catching, the opposition seldom took many chances on tl-.n bases. As Walsh put It. ft took a lot of base hits to niake oven a single run Willi hliii pitching, three, al leant, lo use his own words. That ublUty lo hold the runners on is most essential. Is proven every year. Many recruits lireak into the majors who aeem to have plenty of speed, a good curve, and ability to field, yot are unable to stick.
