Pittsburgh Has Good Base Ball
Machine in South This
Spring To Make ,
By JAMES CRUSINBERRY.
Copyright. 1921, ly the Chicago Tribune.
Hot Springs, Ark., March ' 2 j.
(Special.) When Honus Wagner
decided to retire from base ball sev
eral seasons ago, he left a gaping
iiole in thc( infield of the Pittsburgh
Pirates, antl not .since that time have
the Pirates been close to a pennant,
though tlicy always were contenders
with Honus m the game
Barney Drey fuss tried various
ways of getting his team hack as
hcadliners. He tried several man
agers, a lot of pitchers and out
fielders and first basemen, and now
he has decided to get a shortstop.
Unloosing the strings of his bankx.posr, No. 53 of Grand Island won
roll and spreading out the big bills
he was able to get "Rabbit" Maiau
villu from the Boston club. Of
course, it was a trade, for Barney
Rave a couple of strong outfielders
which he could afford to spare. But
also it is whispcrcd,that it- took a
bale of cash alone With strong out-
-)4iefders. Now, however, he has a
great shortstop, and every expert is
saying he has a strong team.
Pirates Have Great Machine.
The general belief among those in
the game' is that the team that beats
out Pittsburgh this year will be the
cha'nipion. After looking over the
crew of athletes in action under the
direction of Manager George Gibson,
one feels like saying the same thing.
Pittsburgh has just about the nift
iest and sturdiest base ball niachiue
in the south this spring, and there's
no reason to think it "will not be just
as nifty and sturdy when engaged
in championship combats along in
the; season. -
Give any manage a good pitching
staff, a strong pair of infielders
around second base, and a few hitters
o( the .300 class, and he can step into
the major league and cause1 tioublc
for all of them. . Gibson has that
"everything" with such tricks'ia.-sd
true slabmcn as "Babe" Adams,
I Carlson, Cooper, Hamilton and Pou

A team that has even tivo -great plti H
ers generally gels somewhere. Cleveland

ones In Adams and Cooper. The former,
who staged a wonderful comeback a few
years ago. Is In shape right now and
looks sure of another big season.
Cooper is rated along with Jim Vaughn
southpaw. Enrl Hamilton Is anothef
lefthander who "came back" and onee
mere looks fit, and Carlson completes
a quartet of hurlers that should work
ready now for more Important work.

There are eight recruits. C. P. Glosner to

games at Birmingham. John Morrison from

Prew P.ader, a southpaw semi-pro from
New York, has shown a lot of stuff for
a 19-yesr-old kid, Jimmy Helnn, at AVIch
Ha Falls last year, is built like Jack
Dempsey and has great possibilities. Mose
Yellowhnrse, the Indian from Little nock,
who won ' 21 and lost seven, is about
ready for the majors, and Bill I.lnqulst
and George Tice are young fellows from
the semi-pro ranks.
Schmidt will again be the leading catch
er and will be assisted by Mike Wilson,
a peppery youngster from f,ehlgh university.-
Hick McCormlck, a Pittsburgh' semi
pro, is the third man. Gibson may need
help in the. catching department.
Third Base Is Uncertain.

Barnhardt. who itlH nicely at third last
