Fred's first-start as a big leaguer was against the White Sox at old Qomiskey park, and this is the way he tells about it: "I was j.dst a kid and anxious to make good,- so Jimmy Collins gave me a.start at old Sox pork. I was scared stlff^arid the first inning was awful. I -was shaking with stage fright.and walkeditwo or three guys and then someone swatted one. Freddie Parent chose that time to kick couple of grounders. "The result was that when the flrft Inning was over the White Sox had. five runs and we had nothing. There was one fellow on the club at that-time who was my friend, and that was Ruck Freeman. He came in from right field after the inning and I remember just what lie said to .Timmy Collins:. ,. " 'You're not going take the kid out, are you, Jim?' he said. "[Not on your life,' an.swered Jim. "I went back and Iiad my head with me -from then on and stopped tlie White Sox., In tlie fourth inning Buck Freeman came ,\n> with one on and drove the ball over the fence. You know how old Buck could hit 'em. In the eighth inning Buck came up again with two on, and once more he poled the-ball o.ul of the lot, tying the score.
