Bob Fothergill
Robust " outfielder of the Detroit
Tigers who is leading both major
leagues in batting with a mark of .427
for 22 games. "Rhino", as he is called
by his teammates, hit safely in the
first 18 games of the season but his
string of consecutive safeties was
stopped by pitcher Tony Welzer of the
Red Sox last Sunday.
Fothergill's average has taken a
slump during the last week, having;
dropped from well over .500 to his
present standing. His nearest conipet-
itor is Ty Cobb, former 'tigeri manager
who is nov performing in the outer
