He swings ruicklv. nearly as quickly as a "char) hitter" and there is hardly nnv effort expressed in the movement. It looks easy. .Many of Klein's hoim "runs, ot course, are made in IV.e Phils' unrk \vh'ch has R short risrtil lie!:! fence Klein admits he alms, lib drives in tint direction. "Why nol?" he asked me rmc" "If I can hit 'cm over tint wall, I/ th?re any reason to try t-> hit Ir Izft'flcU? Besides I've midj pbntv of hems runs In the Gain's' Pi- mlif and Cubs' parks.

HOW THEY STAND Southern Like nearly every lett- handcdbatter, Klein has had trouble with southpaws nil his life When he came to the big leagues Burt Shotton almost despaired o' hh ability to hit bfl-handcrs Cruck seemed awkward againsi them. "I have done everything I could - tc> curs him," said Burt. "Even chance I got I drummer! into him Iho idea that lie cDuW hit southpaws Just as easily as he could comb th? rijht-handers. I have even gone out my way to give him a cHance lo face a left-hander. "Now he's got the confidence against southpaws that lie lacked when h.2 came up. He cuts Inti lhc:n wilh trc same Ireo anri eas; swing thai he us;s aja'.nsl right hinders." • • * I asked Burl about his fielding. "You see where he's playing on there, don't you?" was the replj (Klein was shifted from right ftc! to center this year.) "I woukin have him but there in the mlddl if he co-jldh't go get 'em. He wa only a lair fielder when he cam to the team, btu hs has learn: foster than anybody I ever piayc •or worked with." When Klein was purchased.
