He has had a tendency to ^ will leave for play lor the wrong man from the outfield now and then, and ii has hurt a little, inasmuch as he has permitted i base runners to movfe up for that rea-1 son.

"I don't think there is a. man living today in amaieiir circles tliai can boat .llinray George." remarked Pearcc speaking of the proposed Boston trip. "We are figuring on brealting the record of 2.24.20 4-5 for 2.5 miles, made by Ix)ngboal in 1907. I don't think Tom tried when he made his record. to the plate he.haa been batting hard The time which is recognized as the enough to prove that be will be a dan ,?erous man with whom to reckon in the regular season. It may be that McGrav.' Intends to use him this year in many of the games to be played, alternating at times with Becker, when the oppor- tunity looks good. In any event it is [boat was iuit txtaaded." world's record for 25 miles could have been much tauter if the Indian had been chased hard , enough. In 1908, Tom Morrisey, the Mercury A.
