Umpire Bill Slewaii, who also came from the Internnlionnl League, says Ripple was a major league outfielder and lilltor three years ago. Scouts must be blind With big 'league material ns scarce us It is. you speculate oil the possibilities of there being other nth- leles like nipple scattered around the minors. Ripple Is credited more than any other person witii bringing the Giants back to life in one of the Greatest mid-seuson drives in the history of the National League. Hippie, the m-st redheaded Ginnl outfielder of any consequence since Red. Murray of happy prewar memories didn't startle anybody in spring training. In fuel, with both Hunk Lelbcr nnd George Davis nvailable, there : was some question ns to whether the large qoung mnn from the Pennsylvania coal fields would be carried. • , It's an III Wind— The sandy outfields of southern ball parks knotted up the muscles in Ripple's legs. He didn't lilt very much niul wasn't ijlveii too ninny opportunities. Ripple was In and out of llic lineup until Aug. 4 _ more out than in. It was on Hint date that Lelber got something In his eye. Ripple substituted for the blond Arlzonlnn and Immediately launched tlie consecutive game hilling streak Hint has kept him in the lineup against, right-handed pitchers ever since. The Giants' started their big push before niople broke In ns a regular. Jimmy has starred In helping to sustain (lie move. Ripple came up a switch hitter, bill Terry advised him lo stick to The left side of . thc nlnle. Opposing riglil-handed pitchers, Ripple performs in five games out of seven. The young mnn clouts the ball on a line to nil nelds. 119 banged two home runs Into the upper left Held deck nt the Polo Grounds. Since becoming a regular' he lins .figured in nearly nil of the winning Giant rallies. He cverlasl- .Ingly Is belling In deciding runs. and driving runners from first id third.

Hippie throws lo Ihe wrong base now and Ihcn, bill he ts n splendid ouincldcr whose good speed enables him lo cover plenty of ground. He has a powerful arm. Ripple Is the rough, ready, and pleasant sorl. He Is 27 years old, nnd hails from Export, Pa, J us t outside of Pittsburgh. He traveled as far ns New York as a semiprofessional at the ngc of 15. Painls Piclare of Power Jimmy is a house painler by Irade, and attributes his powerful forearms 'to daubing while lead. Ripple hurt his shoulder when the White Sox . appeared Interested in him in 1932. The Cubs kept their eyes on him In 1933, and he hoped to laud nt Wrlgley Field by enjoying n big season in 1934. But Claude Passenu, now with Ihe Phillies, mangled his right foot in stepping on it as both atlcmpled lo cnlch the some fly in , spring training. This kept Ripple out for six weeks He relumed lo llic front line loo soon and played with his foot heavily bandaged. The result was Ibal he hit below .300 for the first time in his life, nnd llic Cubs gave up on him. Ripple laughs about clinching his place ns n Gia^t regular by cinder In Lclber's eye gave him his chance. Four days later at In --Polo Grounds he hils off Passeau. "ot two more Terry had been tipped off on Ripple, and when the sorrel-top half-way, which Ls I one of Ihe .irlnclpal reasons why Ihe Giants are not likely lo fall apart IhLs icasou aflev reversing their customary procedure by zooming from behind.
