Nationals Have First-class Buncbof Recruits, According to Record
Local Recruits Show
In Minor Leagues
Official Averages Just Made Public Indicate that
Griff Will Have Promising Material
for the Spring Try-out.
By WILLIAM PEET.
In judging of the ability of a major league recruit, very often sta
cs do not show just how good or poor the ball player really hap-
to be. Often a minor leaguer with a batting percentage ot .J4D
'll jump into the big show and hit like a house afire.
More often a .350" swatter in the bushes will collect a mark of .089
in the majors and drift back, where his club-swinging ability is again
the talk of the league.
Spalding's Official Record Book was put on the market last week
and contains the correct marks of eery plajer in organized baseball;
that is. every plaer in a league where statistics are compiled.
The writer is therefore able to
of every man drafted or purchased
agement for next season. Every one of these joungsters will go to
Charlottesville next March for a try-out, and if records count for much,
Washington will try out a better-looking bunch of youngsters than was
the case lasT spring, when it will be remembered that out of a dozen
recruits not one survived after the American League season was a
Griff will have to figure on a third baseman, and unfortunately the
recruit list does not show any regular third-sackcr, although it is just
barely possible that Jack Flynn may be given a trial on the far corner,
or even Kid Foster, of Rochester. Scott, the Youngstown crack who
last season covered short, mieht possibly fit at third.
If young Ray Morgan shows unexpected form, there wll be no
need to worry about the hot corner, but the general verdict last jear
was that he was a bit too light tor

(which we are thankful to say he la not).
there 'would be plenty of shortstop ma
terial available. The Nationals have In
Gagnler, Scott, and Foster the best short
stops In three minor leagues me west

the Ohio and Pennsylvania League, while
he only hit ,KS. he fielded -3 In 103

Gagnler, of the Lincoln Club, of the
Western League, is described as a won
derful fielder, but weak with the stick.
He and Bob Unglaub, formerly of Wash
ington, led the Western League In long
distance talking last summer according to
those who are familiar with the workings
of the circuit.
Gagnlers b-st bid for fame and a good
trial, according to the Western League
figures, lie in the fact that he played In
nearly every game scheduled. He only
swatted .2C but fielded .937.

Jack Flynn. who was drafted from St.

who spent most of his time last season

told the writer that the reason he let
riynn out was because the youngster
was too slow on bases. Clarke admitted
that Flynn could hit. The player him

knee and could not do himself Justice.

Another aspirant for first base will be

year. Up to the present the experts have
not considered Spencer seriously. The
writer has seen the youngster in action
and predicts that be will open the eyes

As a fielder. Spencer Is there both ways
from the ace. He did not set fire to the
Eastern League with his batting last
season, but drove In many a necessary
run for the Bronchos. He stands up to
the plate well, and has a free, easy mo
tion. If Spencer can hit that ball, he
will hold down the first cushion for the
Nationals this coming season.

and, with everything going properly. Doc
Gessler may play right Whether or not
Germany Schaefer Is shifted to right will
depend upon several things. In the event
of neither Flynn nor Spencer making good
at first Schafer would be the logical
man, and the wise ones predict that the
season will not be very many days old
before the Teuton will be found holding
down the first pier.
Gessler wiU have to hit better than he
did last season to make sure of his job In
right field. For left field Red Walker
and Tom Long hae perhaps the first
claim, but there Is Mattls, the Virginia
leaguer, to consider. Shanks, the fleet
footed center gardener of the Toungs
town club last year, and last but not
least Moeller. of, Rochester. Holler
played right field for Rochester, and IX
he dose not make good, everybody In the
Eastern League will wonder why.
George Moreland. former president of

he belleed Shanks would be a sensaUon
in the American League. Moreland thinks
that Shanks Is a second Ty Cobb.

Turning: Out a Championship
Aggregation This Year.
That the Georgetown Preparatory
School will this spring be represented
by one of the best nines the school has

as a wonder.
For the pitching department there are
three men of more than ordinary abili

the bulk of the pitching. He will be
ably assisted by Corbett and Phillips.
Corbett halls from the Mount St. Mary's

Charlottesville. Vs.. Jan. IX-Virginia's
basket-ball team scored a well-earned
victory over Galbiudet College, of Wash
ington, here to-night, winning out by
more accurate goal tossing, by M to Id.
The Washington team proved a far
stronger lot than had been anticipated
and fought the Virginia quint to the final
blow of the whistle. Their teamwork was
commendable, but their most glaring fault
loomed up In a tendency to take chances
at goals from difficult angles. TJnfamll
lartty with the floor was also a handicap
although the defeat of the Washington
team could hardly be attributed to this.
Vrlglnla showed a decided Improvement
In play, and the work of the 'varsity five,
who were relieved by reserves near the
end of the game, was a revelation to
their followers. Coach Lannlgan fully
realized the strength of the visiting team,
and gave nlr boys credit for a well-earned
and clean-cut victory.
Capt Kearns was again the individual
star of the contest, and tallied eight of
Virginia's twenty points. The Rlxey
brothers were also In the limelight with
fast, play both on offense and defense.
For Gallaudet Capt Arras and Rock
well, who relieved Classon at right guard
after the first period, played best The
latter were responsible for six of the ten
points accredited the visitors, all of
which were scored In the last ten min
