Zim- merman, the great third baseman ot the Giants, was born In the and Is nol ashamed of the fact He may have been at birlh. The Uroni did not amount to much then; but neither fd Zfm. They have sort 01 grown up ogelher, as it were. Xow Heinle Is proud ot the Bronx, "he Bronx is equally proud of Ilelnie. There is reason for mutual cateem. c mfgbty Zim has been the. best I11 produced In a flourishing athletic nduslry. For the Droni, be It known, ias turned out a number of high class jail players; Heinle Wagner ond Rube JldrJng1 among them. None before has had the temperament of Zimmer- man. The Bronx dotes on tempera- menl. Mr. Zimmerman of tfic Bronx is tho only major league 'player known to iandle. history who carries his private audi- ence with him. Nover a day passes, wllli (he Gfnnts alfthe Polo grounds, that this audience docs not evidence Itself In Ihe heartiest fashion. Girl and Comedian The aiidlcnco la composed of t sweet- faced JUtJe scliooJgfr) (too bashful to allow her name to be printed) and a leather-lunged comedian, Billy Day, who always alts back of third base pulls fitufT from hla scat that would double Nick AllrocVs salary. Mr. Day also comes from the Bronx. There is uo donM he la proud of the fact. Zimmerman's temperament has been somewhat subdued during his year's sojourn under tho Giant lent. Me was known as a, rough, two-handuil battler add an umpire L alter par excellence before he decided It was time-to Ewilcli scenery. Bui he may. be ex cused the temperament. KirslT the ex- cellence of his art entitled forcivcness. Ho ivaa raised tn-a school that special- ized In eccentricities. Heinle Klnierman learned his base- ball wllh the Cubs of the Peerless Leader, Frnnk Leroy Chance. There never WHS at more temperamental crowd thqn that old pennant machine. Evcrs, Tinker, llotman, Sheckard and. names lo conjure! Zimmermaii horned In on the Cub! payroll jual the time when that] Chance left the Cubs after Ihc close of Ihe 1912 season. His invlncihlcs were, on the wane before Ihe Peerless leader stepped down. Evil days were upon Uic Cubs. They degenerated rapidly inlo the chaotic slate In which Fred Mitchell found them this spring. Zimmerman a great player with a 'great club, became a aomewhal Indif- ferent player with an Indifferent tea.m. -The big fellow, la now all grace and good nature, appeared to BOUT under the form reversal his team suf- fered. He got along none too well with Johnny Evers and Joe Tinker when these former team associates were his manage] s. And his temper rented itself against every oner within earshot the umpire in particular. Zimmerman gained the reputation, ot an extremely hard man to Doubtless, after sharing tho glory of the old Cubs, Heinle Zimmerman vas dissatisfied with his surroundings when Ihe learn had become demoraliz- ed, U was no family secret thai dur- ing his last couple of seasons In Chi- cago the most prominent Brcaz citizen longed for a change of air. Nor is It any secret thai McGraw quite as nr- dcnlly longed for (bo ''services of one who was wasting a brilliant career because of dissatisfaction. It was nol until last year thai (he opportunity to secure Zimmerman presented itself. Zimmerman wag a, good ball when lie came to Xew York. He is K greal ball player now... No greater transformation JIBS ever been Been, His Chicago admirers could never re- cognize him In the peaceful puranil of Ma career al the Polo grounds. Zimmerman Is as docile as Davy Ho- bcrtson, one who would be. equal of Ty Cobb If ho had Heinle's former fire and fifclu. Heinle nercr has had a serious quarrel wllh umpires since he became a Giant." Zim will fight for Lis rights. Every good ball player docs. Some ol the greAt ones fight for more. But thtra IB no evidence of rowdyism In tU de- meanor. Ho plays came, now; plays for the team, not for the indi- vidual filory. No man on the prospective National league champions Is more vital to the club's success than, this same Heinle Zimmerman. lie has played game at third base alt season Ihc equal or which has not been seen, since the clays of Jimmy Collins. ATo inflelder covers more ground. No oilier third baseman can compare with Helnie in nclding bunts or slow rollers. And, with it all. he Is possessed ot a grace that recalls the Larry Lajoie of ten years ago. -For Klmcrman, lite Lajoie, Is a btg runn, and big men, as a rule, do uot Double up like a jack- knlle while (ravelling at lop speed. Zimmerman loilay is the best third baseman ot Ihe game, lie la one of the country's five leading players. Tlie answer Is, harmony with his surround- ings. His dearest ambition when he al his best with the Cubs, wag an opportunity to play regularly at the Polo grounds. His temperamental soul was always centered In: the Bronx and its environs, Heinle IE en- titled lo carry his private audience." BASEBALL CURE FOR SOLDIERS Can-dlan Trwpi play' After Fracas at VI my Ridge.
