TIGER COACH SAYS CHARLIE CARR HAD

and Is positive Dottle IliHi will support him In Ills boast. Donlo was u member
of the same team, coining to Detroit that full.
Indianapolis that year sent four other players to tliu majors besides Hush
Pitchers "Hull" Durham timl "Rube" Murqiinrrt to the (Hunts; Catcher
"Paddy" Livingston to tl AthletlcH, and Jack Hayden to tint Cubs.
Howley shared the bnekstopplng Job with Livingston, and, while he claims

DAVENPORT GOOD AS ORATOR
Tall Pitcher Never Lost Opportunity
to Tell HI Mates How to Win
Dnvo Davenport, besides being the
tallest man In biiseball, possesses tho
greatest line of chatter In diamond cir
cles. Dave Is quite some talker. He
talks himself Into the reputation of be
ing the greatest clubhousu pitcher In
tho American-league, according to one
of his fellow players with the Hrowns.
It wus u Imlilt with Fielder Jones to
hold n meeting In the clubhouse Just
before going out on the Held. Fielder
would talk over with his men nbout
the weak points of the opposition and
tell tho pitcher lie Intended using
wheru to pitch to each man.
After Fielder had finished his ora
tion Dave would Immediately get on
tho "old soup box," as the players say,
and tell how lie bullied this and that
player with certain shoots. Dave sol-

broko up with the tall boy still telling
how tlio game should be played on that
It sometimes happened, however,
that Davenport would lit) sent to the
mound. The players on the bench
would eagerly watch the. tall Texan.
Ho had a habit of tossing up a slow
ball qulto often, uixl Invariably some
player on the opposing side would con
nect for a terrlllc wallop to tho fence.
The fact that Davenport was pounded
hard and yanked out of the game on a
number of occasions never canned the
big fellow to ceaso telling his team
mates how to play tho game. Dave
meant well and his teammates enjoyed
tho act Immensely.

WHEAT OF BROOKLYN
IS NATURAL BATTER
Slugger Crouches, Shifts Feet
and Kicks Up Much Dirt.
Has Decidedly Awkward Motions
While at Bat, But Is In Position to
Hit Anywhere He Is Called a
Whnt Is the dlfferenpe between form
and style? In other word", what Is
tho difference between n natural pro
pensity to do the richt thlm; In n uniirt
and the doing of that thing In nn easy
nnd graceful fashion? asks Thomas
8. Rice, baseball critic on the Drooklvn
We have discoursed upon Heinle
Zimmerman ns the naturally easy nnd
graceful hall player, and hnve given
him credit for the game. Now come
we to a distinguished athlete who Is
very much different. The same Is Zac
cheus D. Wheat, left tlelder of tho
Zimmerman would delight the golfer,
because Ztm keeps his fcot In precise
ly the theoretical position for doing
tho best work. Zach stands well up to
the plate, but has decidedly awkward
motions while there. He shifts his
feet, crouches a bit, kicks the dirt
from behind him and hits the ball
better than Zlm. How come? The ex
perts nn golf form would wag their
heads at the sight of Zach. or duck
their heads out of the way of one of
his terrlllc smashes.
Dut the graceful and easy stuff does
not fool the old-time baseball player or
manager any more than does the
nwkwnril stuff. Uncle Wllbert Rob
inson of the Drooklyn Superbas says
Wheat Is one of the most natural bat
ters he ever beheld.
"You can tell he Is a butter as soon
ns lie steps to the plate," says Uncle
Wllbert. "Zach's every movement of the
shoulders and arms Is well timed. He
may kick up some dirt and give the
grouudkeeper unnecessary labor, but us
soon as the ball starts toward him you
can see that his limbs are free. That
Is, he is In position to hit anywhere
If the occasion arises,
'Wheat Is called a free-swlnger, and,
being left-handed, has u natural ten
dency to pull to the right."
NEW COGNOMEN MUST BE IMPROVISED FOR

Leader and Prominent Red.Leg Players.
They called Pat Moran a mlraclo
iiiiiii when he piloted the Philadelphia
National league club to Its first pen
nant In 10ir, hut they must Improvise
n new cognomen for him now as man
ager of the Cincinnati Reds, for It
seems as If he Is leading that here
tofore unsuccessful team Into a chain
plonshlp. The Phillies hadn't won u pennant In
all their thirty-four years of valiant
effort, nnd Cincinnati has failed under
dozens of managers ever since they
Joined the league us n charter member
In 1870, forty-three years ago, except
In 1S8L', when they won In the Amer
ican association. If Moran succeeds
with Cincinnati as he did with Phila
delphia, he will be a super-manager,
non plus ultra, for the Reds have ru
ined more mnangers than the rest of
the league combined.
Inspires Winning Spirit.
Pat Is a most likable fellow and has
the happy faculty of getting the very
best out of his men. There are never
grievances or cliques or soreheads on
his ball club. He Inspires the old
spirit that wins. Teamwork Is his
specialty, and he Is particularly adept
at handling young pitchers, due to his
long experience as a catcher In his
ball-playing days. Such men as Reuth
er mid I'.ller of the Reds ure u testi
monial to his ability as a developer
of hurlers who are Just breaking In.
One Interesting thing about tho
present Reds Is that It Is n team of
cast-offs. Dm In that the Reds tin
not differ from other National league
clubs that recently have won pen
mints, i:cr since tho (limit champion'
ship combination of 1011, 1012 and
11)13 was broken up the vnrlous Na
tional league champions have been
tennis recruited from experienced
Has Some Star Players.
There Is real talent on tho Reds,
however, but It took a capable man
ager to bring It out. The club ha
some real stars In Rouseh, Oroh, Dnu
bert nnd Wlngo, and thero Is u lot of
hatting power In the club. Tho Reds,
however, have been badly In need of
utility material, and since tho Injury
to Left Fielder Sherwood Mngce, Rube
Dressier, a pitcher, has been plnylnB"
In the outfield.
To show how the Reds have been
picked up from nil points of the blf?
league compass It Is only necessary'
to call attention to tho fact that not
a single regular on tho Cincinnati
began his major league career with tin
Reds. There are delegates on tho1
Reds from every National league clnh
while almost all of tho American
league clubs are repiesentcd on the
Cincinnati team by former player.,

MASTER THIEF OF SIGNALS
Heine Wanner, Formerly With Boston
Red Sox, Given Credit for Belnfl
Rny Schnik, cniilier of tho IVlilto
Sox, who. "Kid" CIciiMm believes, Ima
u great deal to do with tho success of
his pitchers, has this to say about
guarding against the signal tipper:
"Heine Wagner was ono of tho most
dangerous ut this game In the league.
Wagner had to lie watched all tho time,
and he dWtuibcil me moro than tiny
other coach. Other follows who have
sharp e.es are Dill Carrigan, Chief
Dender and .Tnck Coombs."
As to studying tho batter, SchnlU
says: "I hiivo watched some wonder
ful hitters In tho American league. T
have fooled some, and have tho dope
on practically all of them. I lmvo
letecleil n weak spot In eeryono ex
