HARD-HITTING GIANT WINS REGULAR JOB
Am rm mi ' "
Beals Becker, New York Nationals' Outfielder.
Beals Becker, who has long been a
utility outfielder for the Giants, has
been holding down a regular berth in
the New York outfield for some time
past. Beals is a timely batsman and
It was his good stick work that led
him to be played regularly by Man
ager McGraw. Becker was secured
by New York from the Boston Nation-

als. He has been kept on the bene
by McGraw for several seasons, b
Ing used by the leader of the Giant!
as an emergency batsman and out
fielder. Several of the clubs were,

turn behind the bat. In a recent Sun
day's game, for instance, he saved
Russell Ford a wild heave with men
on the bags, by going up in the air
a good seven feet for a high one.
Moreover, Sweeney is a willing
worker. He is always ready to
kick on a close decision, but he never
crabs after it is all over. He is al
ways smiling during the game. '
Cobb on Sta"ge Again.
Ty Cobb, baseball player extraordi
nary and retired actor, may go upon
the stage again this winter. Hef has
received an offer to become interlocu
tor of George Evans' minstrels. Evans
had Jim Corbett in this position two
years and now hopes to land a dia
mond celebrity for the job. In addi
tion, Evans is angling for the services
of Red Dooln, Mike Donlin and Christy
Mathewson, all of whom have appear
ed in vaudeville. Incidental to his
show, Evans has a baseball team and
he would back that team against all
comers if he could get Cobb, Matty,
Dooln and Donlin to join. -
