According to repbrtS'frorii'New York, hundreds of Gothamites are
giving odds on the proposition of-the Boston Red Sox defeating, the.
Giants in the world's series, the' first game.of which .will be played'on
the Polo Grounds to-niorrbw. Tust why this is so is hard tcrtell. THere

Close .study tans to reveal- a reason wny mis snoum. oe so. i ne cosion
blond boy, is a wonderful. twirler, but so is Jeft lesreau, the season's
sensation in the National League. Wood has a strong ally in Ray 'Col;
lins, but no stronger than the great and only Christy Mathewsonwho
is to be Tesreaus running mate,
uid Stahl has no better rescue man
than McGraw's tried and trusty
ICew Yorlc Well Fortle.
It will be seen. then, that while SthT
pitching tff may .be the strong er com

Tork li Jurt as strongly forUfled In the
box (or a short series.
Neither can the explanation Test with
the lnflelders. The experience, heavy
hlttlnc and superb fielding xf Stahl at
first base Is all balanced by New Yorfs
sterling doorkeeper. Merkle. Heinle
Wagner, who Is one of the greatest of
all shortstops, does not add any more
strength to the Sox Infield than does
Capt Larry Doyle to that of the Giants.
AndiHerzog and Fletcher easily match
Gardner and Terkes.
The catchers haven't anything to do
with the odds on Boston, fot- Meyers and
Wilson are enough better than Carrlgan
and Tidy to give New Tork a decided
Why, then, the odds? Answer-the
outfield Or, to be more accurate. Tris
Speaker. ., ,
The outer garden is the one section of
the Red-hosed brigade that Is unques
tionably superior to the Giants. Speaker.
Lewi?, and Hooper form the best trio
known to the pasUme. They cover more
ground on fly balls than Murray. Snod
grass, and Devore or Beckei They are
better also on ground balls, and as a
trio they are better throwers, notwith
standing that throwing is the long suit
of- the New Tork outfield.
Not In either one of the three fields are
the Giants equal toNStahl's men. Indi
vidually, the men who guard the outer
garden for the new champions are not
the best, but collectively they form the
most formidable crew
Murray lately to Shine.
Murray, the National League right
field man, compares more favorably
with his opponent than" do either Snod
grass or Devore. Murray is the pos
sessor of what is "Widely rated to be the
best throwing arm that 'is engaged in
the thrilling process of cutting down
mnnrra at the olate: but even in this.
his forte, he has only a slight "edge on
Harry Hooper. Hooper is sorne thrower
himself. American League experts give
him as high a. rating in this department
as either Cobb or Speaker. Th player
who gambles an attempt to score against
either of these men's mighty right arm
always takes a long chance.
In fielding. Hooper Is sllghUy faster,
watches batters more closely, shifts po
sitions better, and plays the game gen
erally In slightly more finished fashion
than Murray. Murray Is far in the lead
in the making of startling catches and
all sorts of sensational plays, but Hooper
performs by studious, steady work all
that Murray achieves by flashes of speed
end daring. Both are better than aver
age hitters and better than average base
runners. , ,
Murray will make a better showing In
the worWs series than Hooper. If the
two men play as they have for the past
two weeks. 'Murray has the NewTork
fans banking on him to enact a hero
role In the big show on account of the
flashy work with which he has been
thrilling -them lately. By a season -of
consistently high' class work Murray has

which he lost by going throughout the
JH1 world's' series without getting a
Duffy Lewis has a little something on
Devore as a fielder and hitter, but this
alone does not make left field a stronger
point for the Bed Sox than lor me
Giants, for the reason that Duffy Lewis.
Ktahl's man. must compete with not only
Devore's fielding, but also the batting of
that pre-eminent pinch hitter. "Mush
the Moose" McCormick, and the legs of
the ultra-fleet Tilly Shafer. Lewis hits
close to .SCO and Is a high average per
former In all departmpents or the game.
Stahl doubtless would rather have Lew-
Is than a man like Devore. with a .S50
hitter ' suhblnr for him In the pinches
and a Cobb-llke base runner subbing for
the pinch hitter.
Snodsrraaa a Poor Hitter.
Snodgrass, the New Tork center field
er, bits for less than the team average,
and Is only fair in the other depart
ments of the game. He runs bases with
a fierceness that Is. rather effective, but
he Is outclassed by that lieutenant 'Czar
of baseballdom, Tris Speaker. Speaker
ranks with the greatest and best, In
the history of the game. Next tovly
Cobb, he Is the most .natural ball play
er ana the greatest outfielder in any
league. In fielding he Is the equal of
the fleet Georgian. He Is ranked second
to Cobb In batting, being credltedwith
a percentage of about .390. and compares
favorably with the Tiger "star as a .base
.stealer. There is not a weakness that
Speaker possesses, or If there Is, It has
net been noticed since he donned a- Red
.Sox uniform four years ago." Tear by

New ,Tork.y Oct. ... Three hundred
campers gathered round flickering fires
in Eighth Avenue.- above Hundred-and-
flfty-fifth Street, just outside the Polo'
grounds, heralded the first activities, of
baseball's annual classic These -were
pn hand to begin the long vigil prior to
the opening or the ticket -sales for what
are left of the reserved seats' for .the
local games. Each hour added, hun
dreds to the motley throng and by mid
night close to. ona thousand faithful
souls were congregated without the for
'At 9 o'clock to-morrow the residua of
reservations will be disposed of in
"first come, first served" fashion. Ap
proximately 7.000 of .these tickets are to
be offered the public, or the forty cau
types of accommodations In Brush
Stadium but 8,500 representing the box
seats and the upper tier grand stand-
spaces were reserved this year. The
entire lower grand stand and the
bleachers "will 'be sold daily, prior to the
games, the same as for the regularly
scheduled contests of the league sched
ule. Many mutterings of dissatisfaction
were heard to-dy relative to ticket
sales. The scalpers were loudest In their
Imprecations. The plan, adopted this
year simply to 'cheat the speculators.
Imposes some hardships on honest pa
trons, yet It cannot fall to minimise the
Illicit traffic In pasteboards. Heretofore
there was great walling over the pros
pect of playing speculators' prices; with
this evil eventually eliminated the pub
lic still grumbles. It Is simply a New
Tork characteristic of preferring to
double the tariff rather than sabmlt to
'o Chance for Scalpers. ,
Many messenger boys outside the Polo
Grounds to-night testified to the. earnest
endeavors of the scalper" to cheat the
national commission's best laid plans.
There is absolutely no chance of any
but the comparatively few remaining re
served seats going Into undesirable
hands. And to safeguard the reserva
tions every precaution has been taken.
These reserved tickets wHl be sold from
three booths. One will contain all the
tickets for the first game, another for
the second, and the third for the third.
But two tickets will be sold to an in
dividual In any line. A purchaser leav
ing one line will be forced to form up
with the extreme end of another line.
Thus any chance of duplications will be
minimized, and no individual will be able
to purchase many tickets for the various
games even should he be able to escape
the vigilance of the plain clothes mn
who will watch for repeating.

The loss of Frits Reuter, George Ham
ilton, end George Van' Dyne, last year's
trio of star back-field men at Central,
has proven to be a bigger handicap to
the O Street eleven than was at first
expected. Capt.. King, who was used In
the backfleld a short while last fall. Is
at present playing a half, and he alone
of the backs seems able to carry the ball
with any degree of success.
Stokes. Cox. and McDonough. who have
been worked In the backfleld the majority
of the time In practice, are fair football
players, but do' not compare with the
men of last year. Coach Thomas has a
big Job on his hands to turn out a cham
pionship eleven out of the material he
has at present. Few veterans are out.
and unless the candidates for the back
fleld positions learn the rudiments of the

Thomas has one of the best quarter

Eddie's real place is on an end. but
owing to the lack- of backfleld material
he will be used In quarter. Coach
Thomas is not downcast over the poor

and weaknesses of the Giants,
which "in formation wjll probably be
of little, value to them. It usually
turns out that way.
Has Catchers Gooet.
First. I would like to consider the
base running feature of the series. Our1
manager Instructed us to follow as close
ly as possible the Giant style of attack,
which meant stealing bases with great
frequency and at unexpected times. This
aa attempted, but the Boston catchers
seldlm let us get away with anything.
Cady In particular was very clever about
watching the bases, and he seemed to be
able to tell when the man was going to
start, although we used every effort to
conceal our Intentions. It waa not
often he signed Wood to waste a ball
and then found the base runner still
rooted on first. Already I have heard
that this Is the way In which the Giants
hope to defeat Wood. It has been tipped
rff that he la inclined to be, wild, and
they figure that. If they can get men
on the bases they can worry him Into
wasting balls In the hope of catching
the runners, stealing until the batter has
l.lm in the hole. Cady bar' a steadying
Influence on this star pitcher, however,
and It was not often that the Boston
catcher got Wood Into the hole by ask
ing for a pltchout. Our attempt to run
the bases wild was a distinct failure. I
"Charlie" Wagner, the Boston short
stop. Is pne of the best men at .cov
ering ' second and touching the runner
Uiat there are In the game to-day. He
Is also very particular about the men
staying near the bag when they reach
second base and cuts In behind a run
ner with great ability and daring, block
ing his man off the base very skilfully.
He had a little conference with Frank
Baker over Snodgrass' method of slid
ing while the Red Sox were In Philadel
phia, and. if It Is the Giants' IntenUon
to keep Wagner away from the base.
they are going to have their hands and
Speaking in a general way, I should
say that the Red Spx are in excellent
shape for the big battles. They have
had enough of a rest to take the wear
and strain oft their nerves without let
ting It slow them up. I have been told
many- times by trainers that the first
thing to give way In sn athlete after a
long strain Is his eyes. That Is the rea
son teams making a hard fight for a pen
nant often slump away in batting, a phe
nomenon which fans cannot understand.
It Is slso the reason why some players
hit the ball so much harder In the early
part of the year than toward the close
of the schedule. But Stahl has rested
his men sufficiently now to let them re
cover their hitting eyes, and they appear
to have them. All the Red Sox were
stinging the ball right on the nose when
the team was In Philadelphia last week,
snd I think that they are going to hit
the Giant pitchers hard, with the possible
exception of Tesreau.
Although I have never seen Tesreau
pitch, from what other players have told
me of him. It strikes me that he has the
best chance of stopping the Red Sox.
They don't care much for a spltball
pitcher, anyway, and if he Is as good In
that series as the members of the Phlla.
delphla National League team say he has
oeen against mem recently, tne wnue
hopes of the American League may have
a great deal of trouble beattng him.
However, If he Is pitted sgalnst Wood In
the opening game, the Giants will find
It mighty hard collecting any runs at alL
I expect to see the Red Sox hit Ma
thewson and Marquard. Matty has" not
the speed which he used to possess, and
they can bat a curve-ball pitcher, espe
cially Speaker and Gardner, the two left
handed batters. If Marquard starts, I
think he will be mauled badly. The Bos
ton hitters will comb that ball he lays
over tne piste to a lare-tnee-weu. -rney
have been tipped to wait for the good
ones and get Marquard Into the hole If
possible. So long as things are going
smoothly for the ';Rube ' he Is all right,
but let him get Into the hole once, and
he Is. gone. The Boston players have
beerr'told of this flaw, and the coachers
and batters will be after Marquard from
the minute that he steps Into the box. I
don t expect to see him last half a game.
Mix a few hlta with a little conversation
and "Rube" Is gone.
.Stahl Well Off.
In my opinion. Stahl is as -well oft for
catchers aa McGraw. Carrlgan Is a fair
thrower and a fair hitter. Cady Is a
better thrower, but not quite as strong
a hitter as Meyers. The Indian Is a
wicked batter, and Is liable to break up
a same at any time with a long; wallop.
He Is the dangerous type of man for a
short series, and une who always keeps
the pitcher worried when he is at the
plate for fear he will land on one. Bit
Meyers' has not been hitting anything
lUje as well or as consistently In the
last- few .weeks as he waa In the early
part of the season, when he was passed
In practically every pinch. His name
has not been in the newspaper headlines
aa often as It waa In the spring. 1
