stuck. His first notable work was
with Indianapolis, for which team
he won the American Association
pennant in 1908, and was sold for
the record price as a result.
Marquard was referred to as
the "biggest swindle in baseball,"
and his stock valued on a par with
a certain yellow product that
helped make Messina famous. To
day Giant fans calls him "Richard
the Lion-JIearted."
Last year Marquard was un
beatable. He established a league
record for strike-outs and shared
honors with Mathewson. Now he
has taken the place held by "Big
Six" for years in the regard of
fandom.
Marquard's great asset is his
"smoke." He has terrific speed,
which he has learned to control,
and with it an assortment of
curves such as left-handers only
ever seem to acquire.
When McGraw was heing
roasted to a nice dark brown for
keeping Marquard, he said : "I'll
keep him because I know he is
'there.' Any youngster with the
'stuff' he has needs time. When he
does come he will be a world
beater." And Marquard has
shown McGraw was right.
Marquard is fortunate in hav
ing the Giants play splendid ball
behind him. The team hits and
steals bases when he is on 'the
mound, as a glance at the statis
tical table proves. In ten games
New York has made 81 runs, 106
hits and stolen 18 bases, while
their opponents have made 25
runs and 61 hits.

Imagine the college graduate in
