H{ibAV,-.ji)LV Siri BESTS LIEIBftLLBK Key Man of Yanks Takes Place Among the Great Shortstops . liy HARKY GKAYSON E[>orls Editor, NEA Service Murderers' -row Isn't the only thing 'holding up ths New York Yankees. The nuppert nines Siave the finest fielding Infield In baseball, and Its key man Is Frank Peter Joseph Crosettl, the $75,000 beauty of 1932. Crosetti this season, has taken his place, among liie great sliort- stoi>s of the game. Croseiti jnay not have quttc the arm that was stony Jackson's when the Giant luminary so nonchalantly threw out runners aflcr fleldin* balls back of third base. The San Francisco Italian may not bo able to hanffle bad hops with quite the easy grace or Roger Peckinpiiugh, or toss the ball as light, as a feather and c'nest high In starting double plays as did the old star of the Yanks and Senators. He may lack 1 some of Hie fieldhi" flash of Leo Duiocher. But Frankie Crosettl combines enough of everything to be a standout. In these days of the lively ball, infieldcrs seldom get their hands on one hit,'more ffiian two or three steps to either side of them. But CroseUi beais the jack-rabbit pellet with uncSnny anticipation. No i'nortstop ever turned in a better job of calling the batters" shots. Where there's a ball there's Pran. kie. Yankee Shortstop Outsmarts Base Hits Hitters generally hit different pitchers ana deliveries in different directions. Crosctti has made a close study of file possibilities with the result that 'he has put a dent in the old axiom that you can't outsmart a base hit. Ciossttl throws out runners from deep short, getting trie ball away fast enough to beat out even the sprinters, when he first broke into the American League in 1932. he went much farther to 'his left than * to Ms right, but now goes both ways equally well. Crosctti, a right-handed hitter swats a long ball and does it often His average right now is .305,.and he drives in a surprising number of runs for a leadoft man. He seldom swings at a bad ball, consequently draws a high number^ of jpasses. . ...!••• 7 "Young Joe DiMaggib may' be*W inspirational force behind the Yankees who continue to show unmistakable signs that they have shaken their second-place complex, but .Crosetti is the balance ivlieel of the (machine. The Yanks would struggle along much more successfully without DiMaggio than san s cither Crosctti or his capable second basing partner, Tony Lazzsri.
