WORLD'S SERIES IS UPPERMOST THOUGHT IN MINDS OF BASEBALL FANS
. MACK'S PITCHERS
Bender and Plank Have
Edge on Tyler, James and
Rudolph in All Depart
ments of Hurling Game.
The main difficulty Iti comparing tlic
iAtliletlcs' pitchers with those or the Nor
ton Braves Is that It Is Impossible to j
predict with ceitnltily which ones will
get Into the world's series. Naturally, If
the entire squad Is compared. It will bo
a useless comparison, as all of the eligible
pitchers arc not going to take part.
It Stalling' hmlcrs can withstand thu
terrific smashing of the Athletics, Tylur,
James and Uudolph will be the trio used.
Hut If one or more of them meets the
fate which the Giants' tossers, Demarce,
Tcsroau, Mnniuard and Crandall, met nt
the last world's scries at least one of
the second-string men will have to be
called on. Which one of his looser lights
Slalllngs would call on In case of an
emergency Is hard to say. lie might do
what Connie Mack did last season send
a youngster In. Connie llgurtd that Hush
would bo Just the man to heat the
Giants, und he was. So Stnlllngs might
conclude that "No-HIt" lleorse Davis
could turn the tide of battle. Yet the
chances are that Otto Hess or Strand
Would bo slvcn an opportunity to meet
the enemy before this other youngster j
cr any other man on the start. There- '
fore, the only thing definite that can
Ire said about the Uraves pitchers as a
whole Is that Tyler, James and Uudolph
will each be started, Inuring accidents.
When the Athletics' pitchers are con
sidered, "It Is even more dltlicult to ar
rive nt a possible conclusion. Kvety one
knows that Hender and Plank will again
bear the brunt of the tight. Hut who
will assist them, if any one. Is not known.
"Joe" Hush may be sent at them; "Bob"
Ehawkey may get his llrst world's series
chance, or "Rube" Utcssler, the most
Inexperienced of the regular twlrlcrs,
might be called upon. Shuwkey and
Bush are the most probable men to begin
one of the game outside of the two
So it narrows down to a point where
only Bender and Plank can bo compared
with P.udolph, Tyler and James. Those
Jtve men will do practically all of the
pitching In the coming world's series.
This makes It unnecessary to go Into an
extended comparison of the second string
men. There Is n saying among base
ball followers that a "club is as strong
as Its substitutes." No matter whether
thatHa true or not. it applies only to n
reason and not to a short seven-game
There nro two things that a pitcher
Heeds more than anything else experi
ence and nerve. Experience implies con
trol, because a man without control will
Mot get the chance to have much experi
ence on a major league ball club, a fact
demonstrated in the caso of Houck, for
merly of the Athletics, but now with the
Brooklyn Federals. This being the case,
look over the five men who are suro to
.work tit the world's series and noto their
major league experience.
Tyler has had four years.
Uudolph two ytars.
James two years. , i
Bender twelvu" jcars.
Plank fourteen years.
The vast difference In the experience
of the Braves' hurlcrs and the Athletics
does not end with the years they have
taken nart in mnlor 1pucii mniMiq
!-' ""'oriel's series experience counts for
uch. None of the Boston nltchers have
er been In a woild'o series. What
z'lank and Bender have dono In theo
post-season struggles Is well known to
" the public. They have proved themselves
capable of carrying; off the laurels against
the greatest pitchers in the world and
they are fit to do It again. However,
they will not likely he called on to pitch
against such a wizard as Mathowson this
time, as none of tho Braves approach
the class of the most famous hurler In
the National League.
As for the averages of 10H they have
little bearing on the mattor. In fact,
the only averages available are those
figured on the old basis of games "won"
and "lost." This method Is entirely out
of date. The new system of tlpmlng the
number of enrned runs per game, show
ing much neater the actual ability, la
the only one which Justifies a use of
figures at all. No one can have a "come
Vack" argument on this score, because
the figures to date show that as a com
blnation Bender and Plank have a hetter
percentage than their Boston rivals.
We have In a previous article at
tempted to show the futility ot figures
as k correct basis for Judging baseball
trength. This Is even more marked in
- pitching than In any other department
of play. Every fan well knows that a
pitcher may bo credited with a "win" or
a "loss," which, on its faie, looks to be
(wholly unjust, but which must ho cred
ited that way because of the fixed rules.
Take for example the records of "Joe"
Bush and "Buhe" Mnrquard last season.
'Joe" won 13 and lost 7, he allowed 3 57
earned runs per game ...aniunid won
S3 and lost to, he allowed by 2.5 earned
Tuns per game. Yet the .Uhlctlc young
eter not only went through an entire
'-jc-round same against the Giants, but
won It Maniuaid. on the other hand,
m 'l neither. This shows beyond tho
W. ,adow of a lurking doubt that to de
;nd on the pitching figures for the year
i nnmnarlnsr the nltchers for a world's
'lies Is an nnsurimy.
UlthouKh Mathewson and other com
petent pitchers may tell the Braves' pltrh
eTSlH they know about the weaknesses
ofjfthe Athletics' batsmen, It is a safe
proposition inai wnen mo series uegins
next Friday, Bender and Plank will

or Charles Albert Bender, It Is a Joke to
consider such a proposition.
If Rudolph, Tyler and James wore being
abstractly compaicd with Hender ana
Pl.iuk, it would be enough to say. If
that conclusion were reached, that the
Uraves' trio were considerably Inferior
to the Athletics' pair. But that Is not
Mitllclent In the present catc.
This brings up the following point:
Granting that the Ilcldlng of the Braves
und Athletics is going to be eciual, which
we by no menns grant, the Athletics
have a big "edge" on the Hoston club
because of their superior hitting ability.
If this is true, which we believe even
the most nrdent Hrnve rooter will admit,
the pitching dcpendables of George Stall
Ings will have to be far better than Hen
der and Plank to get nwny with as good
a game as the Athletics' duo.
This in turn means that the hurlers who
fnee the Athletics in the coming series
have a far harder fight on their hands
than they have before encountered, and If
two out of three go through a full game,
beaten or victorious, it will be a great
surprise as well as an actual or moral
triumph, whlchecr the case may be.
.Summed up, disregarding the element of
luck which may play an Important part
In so short a scries, Hender und Plank
have an "edge" on the Bravts' hurlers
which is nearly as great as they had
over the Giants last season

and at Home
in Sunday's Intaglio
An ingenious camera soldier found that Russian censorship is
not impregnable. You'll see it, page-wide, in Sunday's In
taglio the first actual photograph of the Czar's firing line in
Galicia. Submarines, artillery equipment and a full page of
shell-wrecked cathedrals complete the theatre-of-war scenes.
A page each of the Bryn Mawr Horse Show, thrills of the new
aquaplane, examples in Colonial doorways and Philadelphia
booked actresses in leading roles, together with snaps of Dr.
Martin G. Brumbaugh and some of the distinguished women
in foreign Red Cross work, make up one of the most inter
esting Intaglios ever presented.
The Sports Magazine features individual photos of every
player in an Athletic uniform and in the probable Boston
line-up. Harry Davis, in a special article, gives his idea of the
worth of a coach when a pennant is at stake. Ty Cobb dis
cusses the winning chances of the Athletics and the Braves.
George M. Young compares the playing qualities of the two
clubs, and George E. McLinn writes on "Tact Versus Force;
or, Mack Versus Stallings." Other sports are well repre
sented, too, including William H, Rocap's "Who Was Amer
ica's Greatest Welterweight?"

usual, Hoppc's inexperience nt this stylo
of the game found him at a disad
vantage. The English champion gnve the best
exhibition at the English game that he
has shown In this country. Ho had two
splendid runs, one of 202 In the nfter
noon, and topped this with ono of 221 In
the final gnme. Hoppe's best effort was a
cluster of 57 In tho evening match.
Hoppe can hardly lose the tournament
because of the fnct that tho last 1000
points are nt the American style, and
Inst night's figures left him within easy
hailing distance of his opponent.
