thtCONCERNING THE WORLD
y. Before the curtain has been drawn
on the 1929 baseball season, let us
' look at the greatest clash of the year
the world series. This year the
strife will be between Philadelphia
in the American League and Chicago
in the National League. These teams
’ are better known to baseball fans
y as the A’s and theCubs.
This should be the greatest series
ever played, as the teams are evenly
matched in that they each have a
'J'- great pitching statf, good fielders, a
The opinion of the fans around
Mars Hill seems to favor the Cubs.
S But this is by no great margin as the
A’s have plenty of supporters.
The weater permitting, some of the
best baseball seen in the world series
^ I for many a year should be produced.
This series should be different from
recent world series because it brings
’ “' together two teams which won their
, pennants far enough in advance of
the closing day to get thoroughly

‘ fort in the big game. If both teams
■ are at the top of the batting, pitch-
ing, and fielding form they displayed
during the entire season, this series
should go the seven-game limit.
The fact that Mack’s best pitchers
are left-handers and that Chicago
consists almost entirely of right-hand-
, ed batters is an edge for McCarthy’s
Cubs. In view of the class of the
Philadelphia southpaws and a slightly
^ better Athletic defense, howeVer, this
margin should be negligible.
The writer picks the Athletics to
win in a seven-game contest. Pitching
strength should more than neutralize

power. The Cubs have not faced a

Mars Hills completed seven for

two hundred yards from scrimmage.
