Thumbnail for

the bats of the National league I
champions.
They have been hit easily, have
been wild and seemed to lack any
extra stuff when pushed into a cor
ner. Hendrix pitched seven innings
yesterday and was pitiable. He dealt
out eight passes and frequently was
forced to leave everything off the ball
in order to get it over the plate.
What this means was shown in one
inning when he stocked the bases
with franks, then had to lay one
over. It was slammed for a triple and
three runs trundled home.
Unless there is a sudden and re
markable improvement in the pitch
ing, the Cubs, when the season
starts, will be put in the ruck and
will have a big handicap to pull down
In other departments the team is
competent Despite the frequent
shifts around second base, the stuff
is present at the keystone, and that
will not be the weak portion of the
North Side armor.
Today the Cub seconds depart from
Tampa, the first stop being at Albany,
Ga., tomorrow, where a game will beA
played. The firsts, after finishing with
the Phils, will also hike in the direc
tion of home. In New Orleans Fri
day and Sunday the Cubs will play
Cleveland, and the New Orleans team
will be met Saturday and Monday.
Mulligan and Fischer were the only,
fellows doing any batting against the
Phils, who won, 8 to 7. Mulligan
poled a single, double and homer and
Fischer was good for a double and
single. Bailey pitched a. couple of
good innings For the Cubs.
Jess Willard is going to take it easy
until the middle of April, when he will
prepare for a circus trip of 40 weeks,
netting $1,000 a week. During that
time the champion will not defend
his title, but he declares he will be
ready any time after the sawdust sea
son closes.
He agrees to take on Moran for 20
rounds, or will match himself with
any other man the promoters may
ping punches. Jess still has a swelled
hand because of the finger he busted
on Frank Moran, and is nursing the
digit carefully. There will be no per
manent injury.
Commodore Barry bowlers won the
five-man event at the American
Bowling congress, Toledo, which
closed last night Their count was
2,905. The same team last year, as
the Barry Kettlers, won the title at
Peoria. This is the first time a five
man entrant has cashed twice.
Hyde Park and St Cyril schools
put on a boxing and wrestling tour
nament yesterday, the former win
ning, six bouts to three, one boxing
match resulting in a draw. The
matches in both branches of sport
were hotly and cleanly contested, the
boxers standing toe to toe and flail
ing each other. The matches were
held in Hyde Park gym.
