Did Not Make an Error on Cleveland Field LasfSeason. THE HOUSE OF 8ERVICE FIFTH STREET SOUTH LETHBRIDGE, ALT A. BOUT EXCITES TALK This Pair Will Meet at Vulcan April 1-Miller is an Eastern Champ When Frankie Brennan m^ets Billy Miller in a welterweight bout at Vulcan, Alln.,""on/April 1, he will not be going up against any easy pickings, for thl� m'�n Miller has quite a ring career, and knows how to handle himself in-sides the ropes. Miller has clashed with some tall steppers in Eastern Canada, the United States and the old country, and as the result of'his Wide scope of experience, .he can deal out the blows and block the passes In fine style. Before coming to Calgary Miller held the welterweight championship of eastern Canada. He tried to get a decision match with 'Andy Russell, welterweight champion of Alberta, on several occasions, but the two men failed to come together in anything other than exhibition bouts. Miller showed up to great -advantage in both o: these fights, and was fully confident that he could have wrested the title from Russell. Andy has since goAe overseas with a Calgary unit.-Calgary Herald. When it comes to fielding brilliantly and reliably, there is no infielder in the game who excells Terry Turner. Indian veteran, who has been playing shcrt field, third and second base for Cleveland since the spring of 1904. He played "3 games at second last season and was guilty of only two errors, accepting 106 chances. He played 40 games at third base and made but two errors there, accepting 99 chances. Four errors were all that were charged against him all year, he taking down an average of .980 for each position. - ' , The most unusual feature of his record is that he did not make a misnlay j on the Cleveland diamond although he was at second or third base in 24 games at League park. His fielding at home was so consistent many fans wondered if he had forgotten how to make an error. His record for the year was all the more remarkable when it is considered he was not. playing regularly. Sometimes,' when a player breaks into the game after adorning the bench for a week or month, he has to go several days before getting set. But it was not so with Turner. He slipped into one., of his old positions and fielded as sarely as though he had been In the line-up regularly. COLLINS IS HARD TO PITCH TO. B. Trowbridge Collins, otherwise known as "Eddie," i3 the hardest man to pitch to in the American league. In other words, Collins is the most conservative batsman in the junior circuit. Lnllke many batters, Collins does not take a step to the plate determined to hit a certain ball unless he has orders to do so. He makes every pitcher work the limit. He does not strike at bad balls, and for thi3 reason it takes a pitcher with good control to keep him off the bases. ; During the season of 1917 Collins drew 89 bases on balls. The- figures show that he struck out but 16 times all summer, and in addition to the many free passes he got, he stole 53 bases. This made a total of 142 bases accounted for by Collins without having hit the ball safely to get them. And this is why a player like Collins Is so much more valuable that the player who knock* lit* fence down now a*
