Sisler To Be Traded
It has been considered a certainfly
in major league circles that George
Sisler, former Michigan star and now
with tile St., Louis Browns, will be
traded to Washington in a three-cor-
nered deal with Detroit.
Waghington is not alone in its at-
tempts to secure the former Wolver-
ine, for at least three other teams

Further than this, he has been the

this stretch of time-he has conrtibu-
ted immeasurably to the morale of his
team. He has been a perfect gentle-
man at all times and an asset to the
St. Louis club.
If the Browns do trade Sisler they
are entitled to a material consider-
ation in players or money or both.
Sisler is an institution in St. Louis;
he belongs there unless some good
reason arises to the contrary.
Sisler is one of the four Big League
stars who have spent all or practical-
ly all their careers with one club.
Walter Johnson, who has just retired
to manage Newark, never pitched a
big time game except with the Wash-
ington Senators-and he spent some
years in the capital.
