The season ol 1929 had been under way only a few weeks when youthful Charley Gelbert became a regular on the Cardinal infield. He ascended to the regular berth almost entirely on Soulhworlh's Judgment. The Cord boss let out all other candidates lor the post-1 tlon and told Charley to go to il He Made the Grade During the two years as n major leaguer, young Gelbert has been classed as a fair fielder, but lacking In batting punch. In 1929 he played'146 games for the Cards, go', 134 hits for 188 total bases, hit three home runs, stole eight bases and hung up a betting average of .261. He ranked 10th in the list of 16 shortstops who played in more than 10 games, compiling a fielding record of .947. Only Jackson of th:: Giants and Maranville of the Braves accepted more chances than the Cardinal rookie. There was a decided improvement in Qelbert's play during the 1930 season, but so was there with iickson, Maranville, Wright an6 Enjlfch,. and the young Cardinal, • wit almost entirely overlooked by critics and fans alike.
