Bresnahan May Make Hall Of Fame New York, Jan. 15 UP) Don't be surprised to see the names of Jimmy Collins and Roger Bresnahan elected to baseball's Hall of Fame after the votes in the current balloting are counted Jan. 20. Collins, famous third baseman of the '90's and early 1900s, and Bresnahan, former battery mate of the matchless Christy Mathew-son, have been just under the border line in previous polls, but stand the best chance to enter Ihe charmed circle this time. Their deaths within the past year have focused fans' attention on them and their historic diamond exploits. Collins, one of the game's greatest third sackers. and manager of the first team ever to win a world series, generally is credited with' revolutionizing third base play. He was the first to play away from the bag and the first to master the art' of defense against bunts.
