Hr'.s a weak liitter and he plays on Hie same chili with Rudy York, the ••Tiger's murderous light-homlcd sliigner. But TeWwlts is u hustler, n scrapper and a team 111:01. Furthermore, lie is one of the Kiuartost youiiK players who have come into the American League the past two years. He had lo stick around Inst year with a bailing averaire of ,191. . Tpbbolts won't hil thai low- again. He'll improve. He won't ever lie a .300 hitter, but he'll keep working lo Improve Ills hiding im- t.ll he gels rid of lils reputation ns n cinch oul. , Tlie first, time TcbbeU'i: name broke into Ihe headlines (his year .'W'fis Hie result of a fist fight he had wllh Hen Chapman, Roston Red Sox outfielder. There was one punch in. the fight, and Tcbbclls lanu'eii it. Then Chapman clinched, Tlie incidents londlni; up to Hie fight furnished some sharp repartee ami show what kind of a Jel- Jpw Tol&iUs is. With the bases loaded aWl two out. Chapman came to tot in tho first inning. 1 "took who's up," Tcbbctls said, as lie saw Chapman coming up. .''This is a great break for us." "Shut up, you fresh Inishcv," Chapman cracked. "I'm no bushcr," replied T<-!> betts. "I've been up three years" , Tcbbelts kept talking and pretty soon the umpire yelled, "Strike three!" Chapman was furious. The "fresh bnslier" had out-talked him. Chapman came tip Inter during a Red Sox rally and Tebbelts said, "Well, Ben, here yon are to get ns out of the hole again." TelilreUs kept' up his running fire of conversation, making Chapman madder nnd mncldcr. "I ought, to punch you In the . nose, you fresh bushcr," growled Chapman. The count worked to 3 nnd 2, and Uicn Tebtictts said "Ben, I'm coins:, to give you a break. Here comes a Inst ball right over the middle." Tebetts didn't fool Chapman but the strike did, and Den went down swinging. He ivns rngiiifr mad. "I 'ought to punch you," yelled Chapman. "You won't punch me either" relorted Tcbbctls. "I'll punch you just as soon as you're ready," yelled Chapman. Tcbbctls lof.wd oil his mask and mitt, and said, "I'm ready now" lie walked up to Chapman and Hopped him. Tin,,, c i mptnan c inched, and they were separated, uut tne fight goes on to show the type of ball player Tcbbelts is. I have no grudge against Cliaii- man," Tcbbetts said later. "I tnlfc- "' . t ,°., 1 ' lm lo t"T to get his mind off hitting, nut I think he overstepped the bounds of decencv in Mine of the tilings he .said to'me.' rnals why j accepted his challenge." About York, whose' ixiweriiu hitting casts a shadow over TebbelK smarter .catching. Birdie says "I hops York is a bi B success. I'm' al! for him. Of course, I hate to be a second string catcher and the onlv ining that will keep me in the No 'the aitl,-l,«, of war were olUcially 11( :i-e|ited by Joe'Louis, shown pulling his sl s i,,,i, ln , „„ the con- trad, nnd Max Schmolin,;, as the I wo henvywolKlils s! : ;nod for Ihfir rkuuplonshlp tonic |,, y nllk ,, ( .
