Tria Speaker, have been men-jth major league business staff tloned as making up one of the' world. greatest defensive outfields in Hooper recalled that Lewis had baseball's history. And it fared a great throwing arm and few baserunners attempted to stretch hits into extra bases. He would throw the ball in to the infield with hardly any trajectory and his aim was accurate. Duffy was the greatest exponent of the running backhand catch I ever saw in the major leagues, Hooper said, as he rolled up his sleeves and started back on his payroll work. Is Former Pilot Hooper, who is due to retire from his postmaster's job In September, managed the old San Francisco Missions, in 1927. He was let out of the job after the winter meetings because he felt that William McCarthy, club president, had failed to improve the team in some trades and deals. He played in the old Mission league in this area for part of one season, then signed to become baseball coach at Princeton university. He was appointed postmaster at Capitola 24 years ago, and will reach the mandatory retirement age in September.

We dropped in on Hooper, hoping that he might provide some copy about the Milwaukee Braves' connection with the Packers. When Hooper and Lewis were teammates, more than two score years ago, they made a fast friendship that is still operating. I hear from Duffy every once in awhile, and I have a standing offer to be his guest when the Braves win the National league pennant," Hooper recalled. Crashed" Tris' Party The two men were together in 1954, when Tris Speaker was honored as he was elected to the Hall of Fame. Both Hooper and Lewis "crashed" the party, but it was a scheduled crash" that took the Santa Cruz county postmaster to Boston. In 1949 Hooper also made the trip east to see Lewis, who was being honored at a testimonial dinner. That was before the Braves left Boston for their new home in Milwaukee. Duffy was one of the most popular men in Boston and he received' gifts worth close to $10,000, his former teammate said. Lewis joined the Boston Red Sox in 1910. At the time Hooper was the regular leftfielder, but he was moved to rightfield to make a place for the new team member. The latter stuck in the lineup and batted around .290, a respectable mark in the era of the dead-ball, and the colored pitches, decorated with licorice and tobacco juice. Piloted Bees There used to be a sharp incline in leftfield, near the fence in the old Braves park and it was effectionately known as Lewis' cliff. Duffy stayed with the club until the 1916 season when he was sold to New York Yankees. He played there several seasons, was once the manager of the old Salt Lake , City Bees of the Pacific Coast, then went back to Boston, this time Containers Nip Gonzales Five 76-65 Leading all of the way.
