Looks like some of those Federal
league pitchers might have possessed
something besides a fat contract and
Dave Danforth, young southpaw,
should turn in several victories for
the White Sox in the present season.
He won yesterday, but mainly
through the heroic batting efforts on
the part of his mates, assisted by
some punk fielding by the Tiger out
posts. Notwithstanding the ten hits the
Jennings people peeled from the
newcomer, he exhibited some real
goods, the outstanding feature being

all kinds of hectoring. Jennings,
Cobb and Bush, three of the best
goat betters in "the business, went
after Danforth from the first pitch.
They continually called attention

the bags, and once picked Bush off
Danforth's style is a wonderful
help to a catcher and keeps opposing
players from taking any liberties on
the sacks. He has one of the most
deceptive deliveries Been for some

anchoring baserunners to the bags.
For eight innings he repulsed
every effort of the Tigers to rattle
him and had two men out in the
ninth before the crack came. Even
then he would have been all right if
there had been better teamwork
among the Sox fielders, for the first
