DICK RUDOLPH BEEN
PITCHING 14 YEARS
Passing of Time Doesn't Seem
to Feaze Boston Star.
Started Twirling for Fordham Collcgo
In 1905 and Rose Rapidly Mana
ger McGraw Once Sent Him
Back to Minors.
Dick Bttdolph, stnr henver of tho
Boston Braves, has been pitching for
14 years, but the passing of tlmo
doesn't seem to fouzo him.
lie started pitching for Fordham col
lege back In 1003, and two years later
ho was on his way to stardom as n
member of tho Toronto club of tho old
Eastern league, after having had n bit
of additional seasoning with n semi
professional club at Hutland, Vt., nnd
with Now Huven in tho Connecticut
Ills first full season with Toronto
was n busy one, for ho took part In
31 games, winning 111 nnd losing eight.
After that ho developed rapidly, nnd
on three occasions won moro than 20
games a season for the Mnple Leafs.
In 1011 Hudolph was given u trial
by tho Giants, but John McGraw did
not believe he was ready for tho big
show and sent him back to tho Toronto
club. That decision was ono of Uio
mistakes McGraw has made In Judg
ing players, and he has regretted It
ever since, for In 1013 Hudolph wus
traded to the Boston club, nnd what ho
has done In tho way of standing Na
tional lenguo batters on their bends
is too well known to repeat hero.
Hudolph was u holdout this season
until Into In May, when he finally cutuo
to terms with the Braves and signed
his contract. In his first start of tliu
season ho beat tho Beds, letting Matty's
team down with ono hit, nnd ho proved
conclusively that ho lias lost nono of
his cunning In tho box.
Early In tho spring ho tried to pur
chase Ills release from the Braves for
$10,000, but could not put the deal over.
