DETROIT, Oct. 17:-According to
the Detroit News Stanley Raymond
Harris will undoubtedly return as
manager of the Detroit Tigers next
year. Although he has not signed
a contract it is understood that he
has been informed that he will be
offered one within the next two
Pending an official announce-
ment from the Detroit base ball
,club offites that Harris will be re-
tained as manager there are vari-
ous rumors regarding his successor.
Among those named to succeed
Harris are Edward Trowridge Col-
lins, assistant to Cornelius McGilli-
cuddy at Philadelphia; Owen Bush,
former Detroit shortstop and who
recently resigned as manager of the
Chicago White Sox; Steve O'Neil,
former Cleveland catcher, later a
Detroit scout and at present man-
ager of the Toronto team in the
International League; Daniel Philip
Howley, manager of the Cincinnati
Reds and former Detroit coach of
pitcher4 and catchers; Clarence
Rowland, former American League
umpire and one time manager oft
a world champion Chicago White
Sox team; William (Kid) Gleason,
former manager of the White Soxt

Quarter to Defeat, Northern
With Long Pass.

team sprang an upset yesterday at

The tendency to sacrifice fielding
ability for hitting power among the
Major League Clubs has elicited a
storm of criticism from baseball
observers. This sacrifice seems to be
especially noticeable among the
first basemen of the two loops.
Very few of the Major League's
initial sackers today are good both
offensively and defensively. This is
especially true in the American
League where only Eddie Morgan
of the Cleveland Indians is a,
Dale Alexander, big first baseman
of the Tigers is a very powerful
batsman but a weak fielder. Lou
Gehrig, home-run ace of the Yan-
kees is another ball player who has
never been noted for defensive
strength. Jack Burns, rookie with
St. Louis, is good in the field but
no batsman. The veteran Lou Blue
hit better this season than he has
in several years but he slowed up
noticeably in the field.
Foxx is Poor Fielder.
Jimmy Foxx, slugging first base-
man of the Philadelphia Athletics
has never been a good fielder due
largely to the fact that he was de-
veloped originally as a catcher and
a third baseman, before being fi-
nally placed at the initial sack.
In the senior loop the rule is not
as stringent. Don Hurst of the
Philadelphia Phillies has a low de-
fensive value and Gus Suhr, former
Pacific Coast League slugger, now
on his second season with the
Pittsburgh Pirates has never reach-
ed his full hitting stride although
his work in the field has been flaw-
Harvey Hendrick, veteran jack-
of-all-positions who was traded to'
the Cincinnati Reds last season is
another slow fielder. Del Bissonette
of Brooklyn has been ill for the
past two seasons, a fact which na-
turally slowed up his work.
Bottomley Returns to Form.
Sunny Jim Bottomley, whose first
basing exhibition in the last World
Series contributed greatly to the
Cardinals' victory, is the greatest
combination of hitting and fielding
in the senior loop. His work fell
off greatly in 1930 and Jim Collins,
leading hitter at Rochester that
season was brought in by the Red
Birds. $ottomley returned to form
last year, however, and the rookie
got little chance. The Giants had
the slugging Bill Terry, another
man lacking defensive finesse. The
Braves had Earl Sheely, drafted
