" Chase for Crawford? May Be Angle
of Chance Deal.
Sox Win on Hitting Russell Is
Nervy Evers Boots Came.
Once again the rumor is working
that Frank Chance is to trade Hal
Chase to the Tigers, and this time
the story comes "from Detroit, where
the Yanks are playing Chance is
said to be "willing to give Chase for
George Mullin and Sam Crawford.
Jennings certainly needs a first
baseman. If he was given his choice
of Chase or Crawford he would prob
ably take Hal. But public sentiment
in Detroit, where the Kansan is an
idol, holds him back. Mullin has not
pitched winning ball in Detroit this
spring, and was also dissatisfied with
bis surroundings last year."
, There is a suspicion that the trade,
if it is pulled Off, -prill be another
angle of the three-cornered deal by
which. Corriden was sent to Chicago
from Detroit by way of Cincinnati,
Tinker going, to the Reds and Chance
to the Yanks. Detroit was the goat.
All Navin got was $8,000 foe Corri
den, and he could use Red very nicely
now in his weakened infield. The
Yanks bad all the best of the deal.
Detroit has not been drawing well
this year, and the league may decide
that it would benefit tie organization
as a whole to ship Chase there. With
Chase and Cobb in the same line-up
Navin would have orie of the strong
est box office combinations in the
country. And Crawford would be
just as great an attraction in New
York as Chase. Wahoo Sam has al
ways been a willing worker, and the
same cannot be said for the Califor
nian. Both managers axe silent on the
rumored deal. JFor the good reasbn
that if it is. put through it win be on
the say so of men higher up.
Mike Murphy, the famous Univer
sity of Pennsylvania athfetic trainer,
is again seriously ill and little hope
J$ held out for his recovery.

At last fans who infest the South
Side ball park had a chance to see
the White Sox" perform as crashing
clouters". Even 'Bob Forman saw this
unusual occurrence, no peanut ped
4flers projecting in front of him.
Fourteen hits,, thirteen of them
solid smashes, were collected by Cal
lahan's crew, and all but one count
ed in the scoring. S chalk walloped a
double in the third and the Sox did
not count. In every other inning in
which they clubbed safely they scor
ed. Evidently the Hose caught the
"clean-up week" fever.
Reb Russell, the sensational young
side-wheeler picked up by the Sox In
Texas, pitched a peculiar game, dur
ing which he exhibited considerable
gameness. The first fourteen men to
face Russell went out in order, only
two "Of them arching the piU over the
Infield. The fifteenth man walked -and
the next was an easy third out
for the fifth inning. Washington had
made nothing which resembled, a hit.
