Kiel Stephens, one it the two principals in the big' ;est slug test on last Monday's card, •vill meet Noel Lambert, v local bay. who throws plenty of gloves- and dings them fast, but without /- Aiicckout punch. FORCED : BR USHING UP SPORTS By Lauferi Doubtless the finest of alt yachts b ullt by Sir Thcinas Lipton to race for Ihe America's Cup is.Slmmicc k v , shown in a trial run off New- 4_ _^ \fflUM flPATOER Coming up "from the ruck with a tremendous rush, the ball team known as the. St. Louis Cardinals has wrought consternation In Ihe National League .'pennanl race. BuFcball_fans,. 1 A'ho for the last few months have been reading/of the "three-cornered", pennant race hx Ihe older circuit, pick up the papers thc-se days and wonder what has happened. And who • are these Cardinals? Ths Cards are a strange ball team ied by old Gabby Streel, the gent who blocked Walter Johnson's passes for years and years, in the spring, down south, tlie scribes likened the Street team to a son of old men's home. . . , Cranks Her Up He has made the old bus go. To start with, he established Gabby Street as BOSS,- spelled all the way with capitals. Gabby treats friend and foe alike. He is. stern, but he gives each and every player a fair shake. Well, there's Frisch, Frankle Frisch, second and third baseman. Sam Breadon got him from ihe Giants in the deaj for Hornsby after the 1926 season. Then there's "Sparky" Adams, second baseman and' utility infielder. The Cubs had him for r. long lime and sent him to Pittsburgh. St. Louis bought him last November. Now we come -|o Andy High, another infictder. He played fcur years with Brooklyn. Uncle Robbie sent him to. the Braves for the waiver price. He played with the Braves a couple of years. Thence to the Cards. It seems as though they all go to the Cards sooner or later. With McGraw's Compliments One of the outfielders is a young man named' George Fisher. Mike Goniales would describe him, "Good hit. No field." Knocks baseball to pieces and catches fly balls en the spine. McGraw sent him to the Cards in the spring for Clarence Mitchell. Behind the bat? Well, there's Jimmy Wilson. Caught for the Phutile Phillies for six heart-rending years. Finally Mr. Baker sent him to the Cards for Homer Peel and Virgil Davis. Pitchers? We have B. Grimes, who has been shunted all over the National League in his years and years of big league experience. We have Flint Rhem, sent up and down from the minors and the majors so rapidly and so often that he never is quite sure whether lie was to pitch tomorrow in Houston. Rochester or Cincinnati. A Couple of Regulars Of course, there arc several people on the team who have been confirmed Cardinals, practically all of their livesjuch as Douthil.Hafey Haincs and Sunny Jim Bottomley! But the others are for the most : part men who have been bumped this way and that, fmafly to land in Branch Rickey's Haven for Harassed Ivory. Around stars, such as Charley Bottomley, wise old Gabby Street Getbert. Prantie Frisch and Jim has ranged a. group of Journeymen ( tall players who may not be going ! any place in particular, but who will have, something to say about who's going. .
