These two players have won their v^ay into the hearts of the fans, Manna because he is the best second baseman in the league, because he Is a fnst man, a good hitter and a hard worker and has done much to hold the team up. He is also one of the most popular fellowg among his team mates. Myers is a big Jolly fellow, a hard worker who gets by about as much on his headwork as he does with his arm. IS GOOD HITTER For a pitcher, he la a good hitter and one thing fans are sure of is that when Jawn Henry steps to the plate, ho is going to try to hit the ball anyway, something that several pitchers Decatur has had, never tried to do. Another Brood bark about Myers is that he knows when he Is through ana he doesn't wait for the manager to yank him as was demonstrated Friday. Chifeds Beat S'.aufeds-- Brookfeds Drop Two.

However, the fielding slump is due entire- y to the three bad games of last Sunday and Monday, when they piled up about seventeen errors and much of the batting slump is due to facing the pitchers of the top teams of the .eague. DUGGAN IS STAR. Elmer Duggan is the hero of the hatting per centage climb in the two weeks, and It Is his big gain that has a great deal to do with keeping? the team from dropping lower In batting. Duggan climbs from the .323 mark to ?, a jump of 34 points. Blitz also climbs a few points as also does Wol- day and O'Brien. Manda and Lynch have had bad drops although still hitting at a fair clip, while Berke! dropped a few points. SHANNON GAINS. Shannon also made a good gain. The team batting average is .253. and the fielding average is .960, the batting dropping two points and the fielding, three points. The averages follow: Player-- G. AB. Pot. PO A. E.
