And both the manager of the
Yankees, American League champions,
and the chief strategist and
pait owner of the Giants, title holder*
of the Nationsl League, were
right in so far as the first game
of the 1921 world series of baseball
was concerned. * The pre-con- I
fli?C statements of the bench-generals
of the contending teams were1
B^o^ie out on the diamond of the I
historic Polo Grounds this afternoon
when, before no more than
31.000 fans, the Yankees triumphed i
decisively over the Giants in a game |
thik was more one-sided than the
3-Q score Indicates.

brightest feature of the Giants' perfonnancf.
And. at that. Mike McNally.
the Yanks' comparatively unsophisticated
third baseman. was
oH? of the outstanding stars of the
Opening Crowd a Frost.
The pre-series dope ran fairly
true to form. True, the Giants'
hoard of strategy, consisting of McGraw.
Hughey Jennings. Johnny
Evers and Capt. Dave Bancroft, put
on# over to the prognostlcators by
starting Phil Douglas when the experts
agreed Arthur Xehf, left
hander and leading pitcher of the
staff, should and would be the hurling
assignee for the opening game.
And the crowd, or lack of it. was
something of a frost, and a rebuke
to excessive charges and to the
Giants' management. which is
charged with having played into the
hands of speculators, who. In manv
Instances must have been "stuck"
tojiay with sheaves of tickets. The I
gaping holes in the upper grand-1
stand unreserved sections attested
also to the overadvertisement of the I
crash for seats and the futility I
of eleventh hour efforts to squeeze I
into Brush stadium.

with general predictions were

Our hats are off to the whole
Yankee crowd. They played a wonderful
game, displayed great teamwork,

hands and legs. And pFaying so, It
romped on to triumph over us.
It was a tough game for "Shufflin'
Phil" to lose. In eight innings
he allowed only five hits and three
f>f them were flukes. That's real
pitching. The unfortunate thing,
from our viewpoint?and also that
of Douglas?is that those Yanks
punched out those two clean drives

walloper of Ruth's in the first inning
was enough to whip us. Before
the series it was our idea that
our pitchers could stop Ruth. In

hitless. Frisch stepped up and
plunked out four hits In a row and
one of them was a triple. If a
batter makes a lot of hits In a

that is a great trick In itself,
but when a player?and a youngster

But Frisch alone could not do

playing flawless baseball.
The first game goes to the

TECH HIGH MIDGETS
WIN 2-TO-O GAME
Tech High's 135-pound eleven disposed
of the Columbia Junior High
team at Potomac Park yesterday
by the score of 21 to 0. It was
more or less of a practice game, for
both squads and a raft of substitutes
were used on each side. The
Junior High team showed a strong
defensive line, but fumbling of
punts proved costly to them.
Fullback White made Tech s first
score in the first period on an offtackle
plan and Halfback McCarthy
repeated In the second on a double
pass. Halfback Gooch made Tech's
final score in the third period. The
ball was on the Junior's 6-yard line
as the game ended.
McCarthy and Gooch showed up
well for Tech, the former turning In
some good broken-field runs.
Thelle's erratic passing at center
handicapped,- the Tech offensive. ?

BOB MEUSEL GETS
CREDIT FOR FIRST

Three-Bagger Wiped Off
Records by Failure to
RIVAL TO MERKLE
McNally's Steal of Home Not
According to Hoyle of
By A FORMER GIAMT SECRETARY
NEW YORK. Oct. 5.?In the jargon
of the game, it was a pitcher's battle.
To the Joy of the Yanks and the
Yankee chorus, it was one ace for
them in the big jackpot.
The Yanks put a large splash of
whitewash all over the National
L?eaguers and Carl Mays wielded the
brush. As a whitewasher Carl Mays
can give cards and spades and the
joker to Uncle Ephraim.
The score was 3 to 0 In Mays' favor.
Mays m'as also assisted by Mike McNally.
Mike's score was two, two stolen
bases?one of them a clean steal
home. Imagine stealing home in a
world scries, where every play is supposed
to be according to a T square
and the rules of geometry.
In addition to stealing home there
were freaks of note. It was a regular
freak show. Bob Meusel hit on^ of
the longest and cleanest three baggers
that ever was hit in a world series
or a town lot game and never got a
thing out of It because he failed to
touch first base.
Mrmel Rivals Xerkle.
It was almost as bad as Merkle In
190S. when he failed to touch second
base. Then there- is Frankie Frlsch
to be considered. They call him the
Fordham "flash." Better change that
and make It the Fordham "four aces."
In four times at bat this youngster,
who chased a football around the
Bronx only a little while ago. hit the
artistically elevated pitching of Mays
four times safely, and he was
the only Giant who did hit except
The latter lifted a drooping fly to
right in the seventh and no one could
get It because it was one of those
far-away-from-home affairs. The four

and the one of Rawlings' were all the
hita that the Giants made, and there a

and when the tall Tennesseean

had done well.
The seven hita that the Yann?
made might not always hava won
as easily as they did in the flrst game
between rival New York clubs. The
lanky spit-baller had more speed than
he gives away In the summer time,
and the swish of the ball as it cut

the first world series the Tanks
were ever in, and we're out to win.
And if we do win?and I'm confident
we will. I think the Tanks will be
invincible next year.
