The Athletics were playing the Cardinals. On the slab for the Carcis was a young isfc-hander named Bill HnHahan. I sat on the bench with 1 Gabby Street, who was then having his lirst experiences as manager of the Cards. The conversation was something like Ihis: "How is this Hallahan?" "Good pitcher, lot of stufff, an;l going to get better as he goes along." "Pretty wild, though, isn't lie?" '.Sit around antl watch him a while and you'll tec how wild he is." "Nice fast ball." "Nice fast ball? Yes. and nice everything else- All he nettls is a little confidence. He'll get that as he goes along. I told him the otrt^r day he was a. good pitcher. And that lie was going to do plenty for the Cards and for himself tills year. Told him he was going to stay in there nine innings and pitch hts own ball game. And he'll do it, too." A Great rilchcr Gabby's words have been borne out to the letter. The other day In New York. Gabby gave Sports Writer Bill orum an interview in which he repealed his words of Ihe springtime. "1 told Hallahan," said Gabby, "Ihaii I couldn't make him a great ] pitcher because he was already that. But I told him that lie was going to mate a successful manager." # * * Frlsch and Cobli Baseball . managers are ot two Echojls. Some are graduated with the degree of Doctor of Bl.nney. Others leave school with a Bach:l- cr of Bear Stories diploma. When Gabby starts talking about Second Baseman Frankic Frisch in Ihe same breath with Ty Cobb, yon hardly know to which of the schools Gabby belongs Gabby is serious about it, however. "Frankie Frisch has done everything this season," says. Gabby, "that t ever saw Ty Co'bb do. I don't Ihink there is much to choose between those two. Yen know that Frisch reminds mo of Cnbb a lot." As yon know that Is what Major Hooplc might say was ridding one's p.ibtc of a pletliorr) of syllables. Tile memory of Ty Cobb Is nothing lo fool with. liut did you ever see lhat lad Frisch leave his feat about half way bclwccn first and second and go Eliding head first into the bag In a cloud of dust? If you have, then Gabby's talk about Cobb and Frisch doesn't sound to silly. But then, of course, we would havo to cast one vote for Cobb, In any comparison of the two. Oh my, yes! Mrs. L. S. Peters' car. The wonia probably will losu her eycsigl doctors say.
