George "Dolly" Lewis, former left fielder for the Boston Red Box, who
gained considerable fane for bis great batting In the tw^ world aeries against
the Phillies and the Brooklyn Nationals, Is In Unci* Sam's service. His
home rani were the talk of the country and Duffy's big black bat was always
•lamming them out daring the world'e aeries days.' No pitcher either on the
Phillies or the Dodgers would trust Duffy at the plate and did his beat to
foil him. It waan't possible to hold Duffy down, and he held the highest bat-
ting average on . the club.
Lewis, like many other big leaguers, Is now In the service, and this photo
shows him In hla uniform of a chief petty offlcer. He la stationed at Mare
laland, Cal. Lewla has played baaeball with the naval teams at Hare Island,
nnd has taken hold of the men and is lending his knowledge to building a
strong team at the station.
