April 3, 1930

Boston Globe headline of the day for the Boston Braves: Earl Clark Speed King of Tribesmen.

Clark, an outfielder, earned the honor as manager Bill McKechnie ended a morning workout with players, grouped by position, ran sprints. Clark won the overall title.

No times were reported. Apparently, whatever quickness possessed by Clark his teammates had little effect on the National League pennant race. The Braves went 70-84 and finished sixth, trailed only by the Reds and the typically dreadful Phillies, who were 52-102.
