The best baseball in Ilcrzog's car- prereDt. lie !s purely a figblcr. The short series will bring even- ounce oC effort [ronj the nervous body. At shortstop'the Giants have the C'Jge in experience, Tielding ability and hitting. Fletcbers hitting will carry over the rough spots where "H.'s- might slucnblc. Fletcher's field- ing, likewise tops that of Ihe coast graduate, mainly because he Is more certain of himself. Long Hit Spcclilist rg specializes in long hilling. Tic has been hailed a coming national Btar, but hasn't yet attained that form. It was his Rcnuisitlon, however, that supplied the championship form for the While Sox. In Duck Weaver and Heinle Hinv merman it Is difficult to reach a basis of comparison. The men are vastly different. Weaver Is undoubtedly Iho belter, faster fielder, and a faster thinker. ZlrnmcriDan's aggressiveness, bcavy bitting, and pefsoballly him an edge 'over many Inncldfcrs. Zimmerman's baiting punch, com- bined with lhat of Benny Knuff. will be Ihe main reason' for bets on the Gianls. He Is playing; Ihe host ball of liis career and Is holding his temper. Weaver Is generally conceded lo be Iho best third baseman iu the Ameri- can league. lie Is a pinch hit- ter, fair and a brilliant Holder, but given to erratic throwing. The Ourfleldc Compared KaufT, Burns and Itoberison, or Lie- bold, Kelsch and Jackson, form a trio of outfielders that would llckle Ihc heart of most any big league manager. There are a few combinations In the balls. Ills hitting will be Ifofl predom- inant factor In Lbe Giants world's series playing unless he follows In the footsteps of so many great players aud turns out a -.vorld'E series flivver. Denny and Happy Felsch form an excellent match. Each hits for about the Fame average, but Felsch IB far the belter fielder and possesses more bsachall brains. It will be Interesting lo ivalch the pErlorroanccs of theso rivals. Choice Dave Robertson has been called by John J. McGraw the greatest outfielder In the game If be cared lo put enough energy Into it. Hut Dave has failed 10 live up to this statement. A mar- velously clever fielder and a bard hit- ler, always dangerous, be hardly mea- sures up to the aWJlly of Jne Jackson, although llobertson is a much belter Gelder. Xetno Liebold and John are alternates in left OT right field for Ihe White Sox, with a possibility that Murphy might take up Ihe patrol. Lie- bold is so much better as a fielder and hitter, with far more baseball sense than Collins that critics nre often led to wonder why ho Isn't made .a regu- lar, lo leave Collins (or utility duty. 11 is probable he will get the bulk of Iho world's series duty. Liebold doesn't measure up to Burns aa a hitter, nor In general usefulness, but h about etiuiil as a fielder. Felsch (ops Ung j Jackson's superior as a fielder, but probably will hit at the same gait. The Gfant oufftcld should be an easy ,300 lulling combination for the world's scries, with fielding ability to compare favorably wllh the WnJte Soi. Kaufi in fielding, but Ihclr hit- is about equal. Robertson Inlo.lhc ronnanl flsht by Charles Com- lakey. Gantlll and llolkc at first base corn- rare closely, despite Gandll's erperi- encc ami an old reputation for heavy hiding. Like all Iho Sox of former years and present days, Garv dll's heavy liat nas been lost. He ts ttlll hitting thorn regularly and Is one of Uio gome's most dangerous plncb batsmen, but. hl3 .300 Average has cone. Holkn is the same aort of a hlttuT, but Is more youthful. Their fielding offers nothing to fnror either man. Each Is steady under fire. Henog and Colllna Cornrkarlsonn nover offered more In a wtrld series than the reipectlve raerlla of Chnrlcy Herzog, Gfant sec- ond nnd Eddie Colllnp, [be hrflllant second baieman ot Ihe Sox, A terrific htltor, speedy baacrunner, brilliant fielder, and lightning thinker, Collins stands out as Iho greatest ECC- ond baseman (he girae has ever Even now, after a period of batting depression, the former won- rler of tho old A I hi elks, li striding Inlo .300 form with a vim that holds nothing good for 1h< Olant pitchers.
