THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER . 1911
What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
The Cub plnyers who participated
in the recent Beries with the White
Sox received a surprise party of their
own. The letter from the National
Commission carried a cheek amount
ing to $14,947,43, the Cubs' share
of the money in the scries. The
check was not all, however. In an
other letter was the surprising news
of fines to the amount of $220 hav
ing been plastered against some of
the athletes and the P. L. himself
The assessments were the result of
Chance having piloted some of his
squad in a charge against Umpire
O'Laughlin in the ninth inning of
the first game of the scries, when
the Sox won out with a three-run
Clark Griffith says the greatest
pitcher he's seen in the National
League this season is Alexander.
"He not only has everything,"
hays the Little Fox, but he's game
to the end of it. You couldn't land
his goat with a regiment of cavalry."
Chips of the old block are making
. good in football this year. At Yale
Walter Camp Jr. is playing great
football. In fact, he was really the
sensation of a game recently, and
will undoubtedly be given a chance
to make good in the bacl. field. His
father, Walter Camp, is the dean of
football at Yale. Baker, the Prince
ton halfbuck, is the son of a former
Princeton star. The fathers of these
two youths opposed each other in
the famous Princeton -Yale game in
1881 which ended in a 0-to-0 tie.
This is the way Happy Hogan
goes after the bushers who apply to
him for a job :
'"What do you know about catch
ing?" was the formula I with which
Hogan started his catechism.
"Oh, Iknow the game, all right'
would be the answer. I am a bet
ter catcher than Brown."
Do you think you are a better
catcher than I am?" the Vernon
chief would continue-
"No. not at all," would be the
absurd answer from the candidate
for a job.
Then Hap would muse : There
must ne sometning wrong, ior crown
is a better catcher than I am, and
you say that I am a better man than
t After allowing this to sink in,
Hogan would fire some questions
concerning baseball rules at them.
. . "Take a situation like this: Three
men on the bases, in a big field, and
1 the batter strikes at a wild one after
two strikes have been called on him
The ball goes over the catcher's head
and he doesn't have a chance to get
it back. How many would score."
i Most of the candidates wag their
heads wisely and answer "four,"
forgetting that the man who struck
at that wild ball is out and would
have no chance to make the circuit
Following that query there would
be another of this order. "A man
on second, another on third and one
out. The batter sends a fly to deep
left field and the leftfielder, after
catching the ball, doubles the man
at second. In the meantime, and
before the ball has reached second
on the throw, the runner from third
had crossed the plate. Does that
About 75 per cent of the busbers
' thipk that the run doesn't count,
Hogan preceeds to pick them to
pieces and they feel like asking per
mission to retire.
