FIGURES DON'T TELL THE TALE Horntby Errs Often, but Covers More Ground Than Others It fielding figures told tho absoluto truth tho baseball manager would not have to cast a lamp on a pronilsiug recruit. All he would need to do would be to glimpse tho fielding figures and got the answer. The same goes for batting, hut hatting Is somewhat different from fielding, at that, and anyway 'wo were about to discuss tho fielding ot a certala player. Tho player In question Is none other than the well-known* Roger Hornsby, shortstop do luxe of the St. Louis Cards. Mr, Hornsby made more errors than any other National league shortstop except Billy Kept of tho Reds during 1917. Yot Hornsby Is rated as the greatest shortstop In tho western half of the National it not the greatest in the entire circuit. Tho secret of Itorns-by's greatness, therefore, can not bo found in the figures, if you judge him by the error column. But it you judge him fairly you will lamp the number of chances he accepted, and you'll get a different answei-. Tho groat shortstop goes after every chance, no matter where it 1.1. Many of theso he accepts, and in many cases ho is charged with an error on tlie ball that other players would never touch. That's the kind of a shortstop Hornsby is, but every one doesn't know It.
