RiiMeball writers of Ihe period became lyrical about the most famous double play rumbimilion in baseball history—Tinker to Evens lo Chance.

Frank Chance, the Peerless Leader, guided them lo four National League pennants in five years— 1UOC-01-08-10—and made Charles Webb Murphy rich. Joe Tinker, Johnny Evcrs and Chance could hit. run, field, and above everything else, think quickly in the heat of battle. They captured the public's imagination, perhaps did more than any other trio to put baseball In the more important money. NOT ON Sl'KAKING TKHMS Throughout one long spell, while they were knocking North Side fans, out into the aisle, Tinker and Evers didn't speak, but that fact did not iHerfere with their brilliance.

They appeared to be liltle more than a broomstick In his hands. He left a lifetime average of no more than .262, but was a clutch hitter, particularly effective against the great Christy Mathewson. He is especially renowned for breaking up games In which Matty appeared lo be unbeatable. Brers the Trojan was one ofi-the most distinctive players of the same.
