Charles "Chuck" Klein, for • many years the mainstay of the Philadelphia Phillies, and now a coach with the same club, began, his career as a first baseman with E v a n s v 111 c in the Three-Eye league. Klein, a native of Indianapolis, broke baseball with Evans- villc !n 1S27, playing first base. Scat to Fort Wayne the next season he turned to the outfield and played that position ever slnco. Ho came up to the Phils in 102S and played-for the club until November, 1933, when he was traded to the Chicago Cubs for three players and $65,000. cash. With the Phils Klein was or.c of the best batters In the league, year after year. A power hitter, the left-handed outfielder swatted 43 home runs in 1920. 10 the next year and continued at near that • pace for hlj major league career which ended last year when he played in a few games for the Phils, to which club he was traded back in 1936. Klein's batting average generally was high up in the .300's, he having compiled such marks as .3SG and .368 to win honors as National league leader. His complete major league average in 1,743 games is ,320. Ho has hit an even 300 home runs. He won many awards, including those of "most valuable player" in tho National league in ikil and again in 1032. Chuck Klein . . . slugging star Oakland Termed Dodgers Of The Pacific Coast Loop Foriland, Ore., July ]—CU P)— The Oakland Leafs of the Pacific Const leagiib coir.u up with a ncv wrinkle the other night. The Oak; trounced the Portland Beavers. I 1 to 2, and qiiii. balling in ono in niiiK with only two cuts recordoi against them. Baseball men. can't recall anything like this in years of majo and minor league ball. Tho Oak -balled, in the sixth .inning—and af- tev the second out was made thei jus.1 • nieliod • up their . Rlovos and beaded for th u field. The Be.ivers had an abscnt-tiiinded streak al the lime — they headed foi their bench. The umpires—not see inj; anything unu.sual in that pro ceduro. just stood around and waited for the Beavers to star I balling. • Nobody in• tlic park noticed the strange stur.l until sports writ el's in the press-box added things up and found that only two out.^; had boon made. They tried to tell Ihe umpires and managers — but nobody paid any attention- to t'K-ir shouts, Finally—when the Beavers had nearly finished their turn nt bat in the six I'll—the wrilcrs got their information across to one of the managers. But it loo late- to tto -a.nylhing about it. And the Oaks —with u, healthy load—didn't care : That's ..the sort ot stunt that the Brooklyn Dodgers are famous for.- .Dolph Camilli, manager of Ihe Oaks, is a former Dodger first baseman. Pirates Look Like Hitless Wonders 'Pittsburgh. July 1—CUP1—The Pittsburgh Pirates have held down second place in the National Ic.'iguc • for most of Ibis season—and they have done it with what is on paper l.hc weakest attack in. the league, Frankic FriscJi's crew is on the way to earning the hi],loss-wonder' stag -that was first draped over the Boston Braves many years ago. The Pirates have been iU the bottom of the average list for almost all of-the season. But still they've won .enough games -to keep thorn in the •second slol. behind Vile high-flying St.. Louis Cardinals. in -the home run department the Bucs can't list anyone with an impressive 'total. Babe Dahlgren, Bob Elliot, Jim Russell and Vince DiMaggio are the leading foiir- clou'ers fJr the BUCK, but. none of thorn can challenge the league leaders in that department. . Oil; the mound the Bite staff is led by Rip Scwcll. The blooper ball specialist ranks with the league's lop- pitchers, and behind him -the 'Bucs have Ma.x Butcher, and Nic iStrincoyich — two steady right handers and tho veteran Lefl.y Frit/. Oslermucllcr. That pitching :slaff ranks wit!) most of tho .league's mound crews—but it isn't. the only answer to the Pirate's 'hi}fh standing.'. The 1 real answer is .teamwork— teamwork and hustling. The Bucs 'fifjlit hard on l.hc field — they wouldn't be'working for Frankie Frisch if they didn't. They make Miei'r /hits, coutit and they're alert all the time. That's'what's keeping; the Plu-atcs up in the National -Icojjuc race. One'of ten persons in Arizona is an Indian.
