Sanboni, In tho Chicago Tribune) This being the period for picking All- American things, Including an army, It may be tinioly .to select an All- American baseball team before Uncle Sam selects some of them for bis own game.4 As usual of-late years, the picking process rc'solvcs itself into choosing the best men for their respective posi- tions in tbc American league, thon scouting for somebody in tho National circuit who can strengthen tiie lineup. Tho resulls of world's scries In tho last eight years have compolled that method of It is tho strangest thing that I can find only one place on the regular team any member of tho National league champions, In spite of tho fact Mc- outfit so completely outclassed the old leagifers as a whole. How Zim Loses Plsca Heinezim might have been picked for third base but for that classic footrace with Eddie Collins in tho late world's scries, which concerted him goat of international reputa- tion. beginning In tho foreground, as ive who' to lhe press stand look at tbo game, the picking fa easy. Scuaik and Klllifer stand in :i class by themselves. There are catchers who dp more spectacular things than either'of them. Dame Fortune mado Gowdy a hero in one world's series. Uarlden and McCarty of the Gianta can outhlt either Schalk or Killlfcr by Koveral miles, but the- White Sox had an easy' time hitting Giant pitchers, whllo McCarty was giving tho signs nnd narlden .was almost entirely out of [bo play that mada Zimmerman a national joko. For their unohtnisivo buf Invaluablo fltd to Iheir leanis Schalk and Killlfer are admitted by tho best unprejudiced judges lo be tha most desu.inlc catch- ers in Ihe'gamp1 today. They are eagle eyed, gamo to the'core, s'eMom incapacitated, yet chances when necessary. Cicotte Premier Slabman There is no questioning Ilio slale- mcnt lhat Clcotlo won the premiership of, the slab this year, Inking his work throughout tho season as a basis lor argument. Ho was aided by a team playing championship baseball most of tho tlmo, but ultched himself Inlo a high position by his own individual work. Johnson and Alexander, al- though their this season wag liolow tliat of previous sllll are two most doslrablo anil dependable pltchera, almost never requiring help lo finish their own fames and alvaya on tap to rescue a sicfe combat. They cannot be ommiltea from an all-Amer- Ican slab staff.' Picking a southpaw to round out the quartette is more ilifflcult.'bnt It eeems to me Schupp earned that position by his work as a .whole this year. Ruth, tha most valuable leit handcr In the American league, fell far below his IfllG mark In effectiveness, Hob HUB- still's arm wont1 bad, and in the other circuit Denton and Bailee, who were In the limeliglit, required considerablp help at times during the season. Sliler at. Flrtt Station At first base- Staler unquestionably reigned'supreme this year. Playing on a; weak teanv.he outbalted.by a wide margin Chase, who won the- berth last year, or GandlVwho was a. tower of strength to the While Sox, or Mc- Innls, Mack's veteran star. Sisler is not tba finished fielder that GandU.or Chaso is. It Js a mystery why be never has learne'd'to shltt'hls feet It is not a difficult thing to learn, hut possibly Sisler is tempera- mental and hfs managers have hesitat- ed to'correct hH only fault. It compels blm to lake all wide throws to the home plate dido of tho baso in an awlc- ward position and he makes difficult catches out of what Gandit makes easy plays, but Sisler almost always'jgcts them. Collins still is supreme among second basemen and amply demon- strated it this year, particularly in the world's series. No unprejudiced critic can pick a flaw in Collins' work either around tho keystone- sack, at or on lhe bases, although he has been outguessed occasionally, by antagonists warned to wafcb him more closely than any one else. Nothing can be add- ed lo whut lias been written of Collins' ability. Herzos, who might havo com- pared wlih the While Sox slar, was hurt this year and could not do him- self Justice. Harry was handicapped I by managing Iho Red Sox and fell off his previous high average. Argument at ShorUtop. Two men stand out prominently fo. tho shortstop berth. They are Chap- man and Hornshy, bolli steady, reli- able balsmen and botb good fielders. Tho Cardinal star oulbatted the Indian a small shade Uils year; bulnot enough lo overcome the proved difference in lhe pitching of lhe rival leagues. That la lo say, Chapman doubtless .would have onlbatled Hornsby by a wirier margin if they had changed leagues. Hut Chapman is a better team worker than Hornsby and is given tho place largely on that account. Thero arc many other shortstops of high class, like Scott, Fletcher, Mnranvllle, Ban- croft, IJusli, lllsberg, Weaver, and .f on, but Weaver was practically a Ihlrd baseman last season, and the other's do nol rank with either Chapman or Ilomsby in offensive strength. Third base presents quite a problem, but It looks to mo a 1I-JUL3 Ul I Tit t V- At noon lhe wlnil was reslsterins 42 to turn the Mont Blanc 3 miles an hour wards the Halifax side.
