Redmen Capture Their First Metropolitan Crown With Coach Frank McGuire at the helm the Indian Nine copped the Metropolitan Collegiate Crown for the first time in SJU history. This win by the Redmen ends the long, long domination of the league by NYU who had won the Trophy for the last six consecutive years. St. John's had a league record of l2 wins and 2 losses for a percentage of .857. Tied in the second spot were NYU and CCNY with 9 victories and 5 defeats each. The Indians' season record for all games played was l6 wins with 3 losses, ,842 ball. Reading from left to right in the outfield the Indians had Tony Garin, Johnny Kaiser, Capt. of the nine, and Tommy Tolan. Garin belted the ball at a .284 clip while Capt. Kaiser earned the honor of the fourth highest Redman batting average, 338. Going deep into the hole at shortstop for the start of many double plays was Herb Rossman, slugging shortstop, who flipped to Artie West, the right half of the keystone combination, with West relaying the ball to first base where Jimmy Felton completed the DP. Third base duties were capably handled by Dick Bohner. The Redmen infield had a combined BA of .3l8. "Peanuts" Miller did the bulk of the catching while Jack Gimmler handled the rest of the work behind the bat. fsP3122Qwziffafffwzqrmyf. , , ,. . ., 55x2'1i2btfl'1V "5'7H'E'I3QZ2S.X y "' 3C:712 f'f1:23ff '11',1'E,"5f2 'WM Km, - .,., -I wmfw-vi.-Azz.. f1',,:fw.:',.- 1 if- ,. . :ww - 1- ff, ..
