Tris Speaker
Fights Gamely
Against.Death
By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND, July 11.-The count
was three and two on gravely-ill Tris
Speaker today, but baseball's im-
mortal outfielder wasn't ready to
strike out.
"I've been awfully sick but I'm go-
ing to make it," Speaker told his wife.
Hospital physicians said, however, it
would be several days before they
could determine the outcome of his
fight against pneumonia and an in-
testinal puncture which required a
major operation.
Five years ago Speaker fell 16 feet
from a porch at his home, fracturing
his skull and an arm, and suffering
facial cuts which required some 100
stitches. He refused to permit anyone

to pick him up, lurched to a lawn
chair and awaited an ambulance.
Doctors and friends despaired, but
Tris' stamina pulled him through.
Again this time "he has a marvel-
ous spirit and feels he's going to
make it," Mrs. Speaker disclosed to-
day. "He is resting comfortably and
for the first time I feel encouraged."
Speaker, now 54, is rated by many
experts as the greatest center fielder
of all time-but he started in the
minors as a right-handed pitcher.
After he broke his salary wing, he
taught himself to throw left-handed
and changed into an outfielder.
He was on three world champion-
ship teams, in 1912 and 1915 with
the Boston Red Sox and in 1920 with
the Cleveland Indians, whom he
managed to their only pennant. Tris'
lifetime batting average is .345.
"He'll be all right if his spirit and
the best of care can pull him
through," Mrs. Speaker said, "but he
felt very badly about missing that
All-Star game."
