at direct variance with thoe lu the other.
In the American Leaguo more men felt
off in their hitting from mil than gained,
while In the National more galnedln point
than fell o(T Of batur whose records are
listed for the two, season thirty-flve In
the American Lcaguo picked up In point

there are found considerably more Igna

There are several theories to account
for thci-e conditions. One Is that the pitch
ing was better in the Amorlcan League this
year than lat. and that the pitching In the
National League the Inst season wasn't
a good a In mil Hut the question arises:
Is It that the calibre of the pitching wa
different, or that tho changes were In the
batting rather than in the pitching? To a
certain extent batting and pitching are
correlative, As the one improves the other
naturally Isn't so effective; but at the ume
time batting might improve of Itself
without the pitching being any the less
good even if not as effective.
Whether thn batting In the National
league simply became better without any
deterioration in pitching and whether
the batting in the American League simply
became weaker without any improvement
In pitching is something that the cold
figures do not entirely answer. The ques
tion can be put another way: Is the change
In the National League duo to weaker
pitching nnd no better batting, and is the
change In thn American league due to
stronger pitching thnn In inn and no weaker
batting? Tho figures don't answer this
point either. There may have been both
In each league; that is pitching not quite
so good as In mil in the National and yet
a natural Improvement In batting, and in
the Amerlcna league ncttial improvement
In pitching over 1011 and also an independent
slump in batting.
The whole question Is one which cannot
be answered satisfactorily, Thero are
always fluctuations from year to year.
Certain it Is that last spring, owing to a wet
training season which made boimen back
ward, there was a whole lot of poor pitching
in tho National League, but why not also
in the American League, in which the same
retarding coniUMniiM were encountered?
The question as 10 whether the pltclers
were better in tho American than in the
National or whether the batters were better
In the National than in the American need
not enter Into the discussion. It has no
bearing, because the llgitres are only com
parisons In each league with what was
done In that league the year before.
i'y Cobb fell oil ten points in his batting,
but thn btnallness of ms decrease, together
with the conspicuous fact that he hit over
.too each year, makes his slight slump a
mere trifle. A wholesome Improvement
was shown by Speaker, who gained fifty-six
points. Lajoie Just about held his own.
