8tarted Twirling for Fordham Collega
in 1905 and Rose Rapidly Mana
ger McGraw Once Sent Him
Back to Minors.
Dick Iludolph, star heaver of tho
Boston Braves, has been pitching for
l'l j cars, hut the passing of tlmo
doesn't seem to fenzo him.
Ho started pitching for Fordham col
lege back In 1005, and two years later
ho was on his way to stardom as u
member of tho Toronto club of tho old
Eastern league, uftcr hnvlng hnd n bit
of additional seasoning with n semi
professional club at Itutlnnd, Vt., and
with New Haven In tho Connecticut
Ills first full season with Toronto
was a busy one, for ho took part In
31 games, winning 13 and losing eight.
After that ho developed rapidly, nnd
on three occasions won mora than 20
games a season for tho Maple Leafs.
In 1011 Rudolph wns given a trial
by tho Giants, but John McOraw did
not bellevo he was ready for tho big
show and sent him back to tho Toronto
club. Thnt decision was ono of tho
mistakes McGraw has mndo In Judg
ing players, and ho has regretted It
ever since, for In 1013 Rudolph was
traded to tho Boston club, and whnt ho
has dono In tho wny of standing Na
tional lcngno batters on their heads
Is too well known to repeat here.
Rudolph wns a holdout this season
until Into In May, when ho finally camo,
to terms with tho Braves and signed
his contract. In his llrst start of the
season ho beat tho Beds, lotting Matty's
team down with ono hit, and ho proved
conclusively that ho bus lost nono of
his cunning In the box.
Early In the spring ho tried to pur
chase his reletisa from tho Braves for
$10,000, but could not put tho deal over.
Manager Stalllngs knows well what ho
