Charles Farrell. the screen star and Cochrane earncil their board as sophomores by working as bus boys and washing .dishes in , the fchool cafeteria. They also were memlwrs of the boxing team. Coehrane made 10 sport.s letters, four In football, bu he failed to make the baseball tcarr until his junior year, when hi. played right field. Against.

Coclirane was In a position to do Mmt very thing as a rising Yomi!> star of the AAAAAAAA's less than two years later, but wasted no time squatting ' on steps. Mickey is too over-active both physically and mentally to do anything like that. The transformation of the Detroit club from a group of poor fifth-place players with hang-dog expressions lo an np-and-dolng and pennant-pursuing aggregation can be Iraced largely lo Its manager's inimitable ambition. • * • Cochrane, called "Kid" in college, was better known there as a football player than a baseball pluy- er. Us was a brilliant back with a Class C outlll. Mickey's first visit 10 the Yankee'Stadium, where his team- recently- iXM-fonned before 131,607 paid -admissions ,in three playing days, was-in that capacity.

Mickey was—nnd slill is—a remarkable bascnumcr for a backstop. It was with the Portland club of the Pacific Coast Leas'.ie thai Cochrane developed as a catcher, after a discouraging slart . at a position he keenly disliked. Mickey never really has been a "picture catcher"—that, is, there perhaps arc a dozen, receivers who arc more polished. But his intelligence, competitive spirit, hustle, speed, and hitting quickly established him as the mast valuable catcher in the game. Many consider him the greatest who ever played it.
