Teammnlcs kidded 'him about it, but soon slopped, and not because he .shav- cd It off. The bloke could catch, Connie Mnck rate him light behind Mickey Cochmne in his all- time book. 1 Wally Seining, « stocky little fellow, was agile nnd tremendously powerful. He had strain: hands rlevelo|ied sewing covers oti Pullman mattresses in Buffalo during the off-season. Wally SchaiiB, drafted from Buffalo by Manager Mack, caught the first World Scries game he saw. World Series followed him around, lie was lii six Series— with the A's, Red Sox and Yankees. Ho was on four world championship combinations. Sehnng, now inanagtne in the minors, caught more than 1800 American League giuncs In IB years. In 1940, at 49, he caught (lie second game of double-headers nnd • night engagements and hit close to .300 In managing the Three Rivers,' Quebec, club to the Provincial league pennant. A switch hitter of Rood speed, Schang left a lifetime' big league batting average of .287. He played third base and the oulfield for the A's and in the outfield tor the Red Sox. .

Schang was thrown at by every type of pitcher — the fireball southpaw, the whiplash curve right- hander and the crenm puff variety. Balls broke in alt directions, high and low. Gnarled lingers are the evidence. '•' Schang caught, nil four of the Athletics' victories over the Gl- mils In the 1D13 World Series. and his .357 batting average hiul much to dp. with the result. The .World Series buslne.-ji be gnu to fall in Philadelphia in '14. when the miracle Braves swept the set. Manager Mack scrapped his famous combination,, it will be recalled.

What followed clinscd Nehf, smil the Yanks took It' all G-4. One of .Mite Manager Hugglns' few mistakes was the trading of Seining to the Browns in '20. Wally's eyes were reported falling but he could see well enough to hit .330 in 103 games. He was the Browns' first-string reccivei In '27-'2fl-29, and then wns traded back to [lie A's for Third mnn Snmmy Hale— just in time for another World Series! Scliiing wns raised on a farm nenr.DiiPuy, N. Y., but was a city slicker In back of the plate. "The catcher is the jockey," he explains. 'The pitcher t s the horse. A good horse will lose with a bad rider. The catcher must not let the pitcher lose his courage, confidence, control." Iron Man Schang considers Chief Bender the lop pitcher of them nil, and not because the Chippewa gave him his first hrcnk In July. 1013, when he asked Connie Mnck to "let the kid catch me." "Bender was n crabby o!d Indian," rcintes Schaug, "inn what n heart he lind, and what an arm." The same may be said of Wally Sehnng. There arc 75,533 miles of highways in the state of Colorado.
