DIAMOND STARS -
WELL KNOWN
Ed Walsh, star White Sox
pitcher, finds the Athletics easy
picking, but the Cleveland club
has always been hard for him to
beat. Some of his greatest pitch
ing duels have,, been against
Cleveland pitchers and he has
been on the losing side more often
than on the winning.
Doc White's Hoodoo.
Doc White, the White Sox'left
hander, has never been .very ef
fective against the Athletics, but
he is a bear opposed to Washing
ton and Detroit. White had Cobb
on Jiis staff for a couple of years
but the batting champion finally
solved his deliverv.
Eddie Plank's Hoodoo.
Eddie Plank, the veteran left
hander of the Athletics, is always
successful against the Boston
club, but usually has trouble with
the New York team.
Cy Morgan, Connie Mack's spit
bailer, is very effective against the
Cleveland club; He works twice
in each Cleveland-Athletic scries,
but seldom pitches' against Detroit.
When Detroijt plays in Cleve
land, Ty Cobb seldom hits any
where near his real form for
some, reason. When Addie Joss
was alive he preferred to have
Cobb on the Cleveland, grounds,
in a pinch, to several other De
troiters. Cobb alwa'yshits his best
in New York-and Boston.
Chief Bender's-Hoodoo.
Most teams look' a"bout the same
to the great pitcher, Bender, of
the Athletics, Although Washing
ton, the lowly; makes it interest
ing for him..? He-is probably less
effective against this-team than
he is against any other - -in the
league.
Joe Birmingham, Cleveland
outfielder, has not the reputation
of Lajoie, Cobb or Speaker, as a
hitter, yet Ed Walsh prefers to
pitch to these stars than to Bir
mingham. The ex-Cornell player
has broken up several games 'for
Walsh, which probably accounts
for the pitcher's opinion.
Tris Speaker, the sensational
Boston outfielder, seldom hits his
best in Detroit. He says the town
is his jinx. In other American
league cities Tris is not bo.thered
