No, doubt more than a few White So.x fans have asked that question during recent years. Few people understand just why this little sorrel-topped hurler hangs on In the big league, even though he seldom works unless a game is hopelessly lost and there is a desire to rest the pitchers who work, regularly. , ' Dispel the idea thaj. Mel has about the softest job in 'the big circuit. He. earun whatever his contract calls for.' His name is seldom in a box score, but he Is one of.those tallows who is to a baH,club what a scene shifter is to a', theater. Mel does incs't of his work when the taps, are not .around, arid it you don't belieye h�J' does It well wo refer yqu to any PtUei; -veteran now on the clvib ros'ffit*'. , ' Wolfgailg ''playS-'.'-K-�*'"game in the �niorriings. WTien the Sox are at home there-lire two hours daily of strenuous drill. The heavy parf'of this program' is batting practice. Some one has to pitch' to the sluggers,-and Mel is the one. Anyone'elso ig hot satisfactory to the men. W'bltgang.lias control, has)' a big assortment of -foolers dnd the batters Icnow when tljey step up .there they are in no dangw of gettlng'soak-ed with a wild pitcht tin'd at the same time they know they-are getting some good out of looking over a pitcher who "has something." The little fellow also has his duties cut out for him after-luncheon. Not only at homo, but abrpad, he has to give the batters a workout' prior to the game -wh'enever RpVrlaiid' expects the enemy to send forth a''righthand-er.-'lf -a -left-hander .is*; the- work'"for the :otfeer fellows then.: the Sox: boss, picks'a> Sortsldor to turioup'the swatting lamps. In additjon to this Wolfgang has a soasonta .lease on the bull pens , In the various .American � league parks. It is from those remote spots that he witnesses the combats in which his mates are engaged. :  . A tew^ other things make .Wolfgang of value to his team. Ho is a natural-born ballplayer. Put hlin..on the'slab and he will give a good account of himself; but there are seven other positions he can Imndle in a pincli. The only thing he has never tried is catching and he probably could do this capably it he -wasn't, afraid of smashing a finger. He hiand'les ground and fly balls with remarkalile ease and incidentally is not ft joke hitter. Because he can do these; tjiings he is a handy man to have around in case, pf a shortage of intieldera'! or fly-chasers. Central nnd Westminster opened the Public Schools' League the other evening, and Central took the long end of the score 11 to 2. BIssett, pitching tor Central had the Northsldors eating out ot his hand, allowing a paucity' of bingles which netted only two runs, one In the first and one In the fifth. Up till the fifth Central dItJn't do anything to write home abdijt, but In the 5th and 6th they cracked the ball to all corners of the lot, annexing five in each stanza. The lineup: Central: McCambly. Johnston, Hag-oil, Oadess, Hutton, Bissett, Kessler, Kerr, McNabb. Westminster: Allen, Barkley, Norman, Grist, Patching, Golger, Taylor, llldpath, Hodenstrom.
