Dugey One of Luckiest Players Two years a major leaguer and twice a participant in the world series divvies Thats the record of Oscar Dugey substitute lnfielder for the Phillies and a record which earns for him the distinction ot being the very luckiest youth that ever broke into baseball Dugey came up from Waco Tex in the springtime of 1P14 Josh Devore George Whitted and Beals Becker yes they have been lucky but Dugey out - lucjced every man that ever walked onto a ball field Dugey was 19 years old when he joined the Braves last spring He showed nothing startling in a baseball way but he was earnest and hardworking hardworking So Stallings decided to let him linger around Dugeys 1914 record shows that he hit for 193 in 58 games with the Braves His fielding average was under 500 Yet Dugey kept on the Braves rcster and got a big slice of the world series melon In the winter of 1914 - 1915 Stalling put through a trade with the Phillies and when he did It he grasped a chance tc unload excess baggage He gave them Difgey as the to boot part of the bargain Dugey wasnt keen about going to the Phillies but It was a case of go to the Phillies or back to the mjnors Now Dugey 13 on the roster of the National League champions Dugey who has fielded in only a mediocre manner who has batted only around 200 and has worked in only a few games will get as big a share of tha world series spoils as will Alexander Cravath Luderus and the others
