In addition, the 5 foot 10 mch, 160-pound veteran from Broken Bow, Okla., racked up the most strikeouts, 149, and paced the circuit in shutouts with 7 Pressing Brecheen for earned run laurels, among pitchers who completed at least 10 games, was knuckleball ace Emil "Dutch" Leonard of the Phillies with a mark of 2.51. Only 4 Nip 3 ERA Outside of Brecheen and Leonard, only 2 other pitchers wound up with earned run averages under 3 per game. They were Johnny bam, Boston Braves work-horse, with 2.60, and left-hander Johnny 1 Schmitz of the Cubs with 8.64 Sam was close behind Brecheen m the matter of individual hurling honors. The rangy, tobacco-, chewing right-hander won the most games, 84, while losing IS for a .615 percentage; pitched the most complete games, 28; worked the most innings, 316; faced the most batters, 1,313, and yielded the most hits, 297. Hardest-working relief pitcher was Harry Gumbert of Cincinnati who appeared in the most games, 61, and finished the most contests, Among pitchers who failed to hurl 10 tsomplete games, veteran Rip SewelJ, 40-year-old Pittsburgh right-hander, registered the highest won-lost percentage, .813. The figure was compiled on 13 vie-, tones and 3 losses. Sewell owned the longest winning streak in the league 8 straight games extending from July 22 until the end of the* season. M Leonard Biggest Loser • .Leonard, even with his excellent 6a ,^ ed run average, was charged with the most losses, 16, while Southpaw Johnny Vender Meer winner of 17 games, gave up the most bases on balls, 124. Larry Jansen of the Giants allowed the most runs, 125, and Murry Dickson of the Cardinals permitted the most earned, runs, Bob McCall, Chicago's hard-luck hurler, suffered the league's loner, est losing streak, 13 games, between May 15 and Sept. 22.

Last year he performed well at forward, center and guard and probably will see a lot of action at center behind Rehfeldt this season He is a bit slow afoot, but is a Hood scrapper.
