Hard.Worklng Leader of New York Yankees.
There !h no keener student In bnscbo" tlinu Miller Muggins, monngor of
tho New York American leaguo team. Ho constantly Is thinking out plays,
and tries to Implant his Ideas on the men he commands, lie Is u clever Judgo
of pitchers, and though ho always played the Inlield, ho can teach u young
pitcher moro than tho neruge retired star moundsmnn.
Not Popular With Fans.
Desplto his success here, It nevertheless Is true that Hugglns has not won
n great deal of popularity In New York, complains u New York critic. Ho has
won many acknowledgments of his ahlllty, but tho fans do not feel for him
like they do for Mctlruw or llko they did for some of his numerous predeces
sors, particularly Clark Grllllth and Bill Donovan.
Hugglns largely Is to blame for tho fact that he has not won more popu
larity In Now York. Ho discounts both popularity and publicity. Desplto tho
fact that ho Is ono of tho smartest men that ever trod on a hall Hold, and Is u
lnwyer In tho bargain, ho does not seem to realize what assets popularity and
publicity can bo to u successful manager.
Lets Huston Do Mixing.
Ho Is willing to let the congenial "Cap" Huston do all tho mixing for tho
club. Thero perhaps never was a club In which there was greater Intimacy
between tho owners and baseball writers than there Is between Buppurt and
Huston nnd tho Now York Chapter of Baseball Writers, yet on tho other hand,
few managers aro us distant from tho men who write of the exploits of their
team as Hugglns.

Manager Stallings of Boston Braves,

Manager Stallings of Boston be
lieves firmly that baseball authorities
will have, sooner or Inter, to banish
all paraflln, emery and other acces

who takes to It and keeps himself In
baseball several years longer than one

umpire can rub his hand over It and
not detect tho dust. Yet thero Is
enough thero to roughen tho ball nnd
let tho twIrleY get n grip on It.
"Ono twlrler on a winning club 1ms
to much pnrallln scnttcied about his
person that ho smells llko tho Stand

Tho catcher gets a now ball and
bounces It to tho pitcher on tho
ground. Thnt makes n rough spot and
tho pitcher smooths the sldo opposite
and you havo a curve that will out
break a spltter."

Somehow In the struggle the ball

quite satisfied that ho would make

mid then one day he saw F-ed Tenney.
Tenney was a wonder in those days,

PITCHING ARMS ARE LIABLE TO CRACK
AT ANY TIME WITH LITTLE PROVOCATION
m r& vr mi
CA-sih V ' -T nSs.
-Ti "" DffiacCvJ
Pitchers With Deranged Hurling Apparatus.
Pitching arms nro as fragile as Dres
den china. Moro than one young (ling
er nenrlng the crest of his career has
had to pop out of the pastlmlng lie
cause ho was unfortunate enough to
derange his hurling apparatus.
A fresh case bringing this thought
to mind bus been the experience of
Ford Schupp, tho brilliant New York
southsltler, who In 11)17 pitched the
Olnnts to n pennant by winning 21
games out of 28 starts and followed
this feat by blanking tho White Sox
ft to 0 In the fourth game of tho
world's series thnt fall.
Break Down of Schupp.
When tho season of 1010 opened Mc
graw thought ho bad ono of the best
pitchers In tho country, but something
happened to Schupp's arm and tho big
winner of 1017 could only pitch .13 In
nings In the whole season of 1018 nnd
was odlclally charged with ono defent
nnd not credited with nny wins.
It was thought that a long rest
would restoro the strength to
Schupp's arm, but on tho training trip
It was soon evident that tho trouble
bad not been removed, nnd while- Mc
Oraw held on to tho lefthander ho
finally traded him to St. I.ouls. This
Is rough on Schupp, who now Is Just
twenty-seven years old, and bad n big
future and n fat poy envelopo ahead
Caso of Chalmers.
Thero never was a moro pathetic
caso of a pitching career ruined by
an Injured arm than that of George
Chalmers, the former Phil. Chal
mers camo to tho Phils In the
fall of 1010 and his debut was to blank
tho Giants. In 1011 ho showed prom
ise of developing Into a star. But
something happened In tho fall of
After tho closo of the season
Chalmers went on a playing Jaunt to
Cuba with n number of other Phils.
On tho wny over whllo skylarking on
tho deck of tho steamship Chalmers
fell down a companion way. It would
have been nn ordinary accident for
anyone except u pitcher. His pitching
arm was under him as ho fell and liga
ments wero torn.
Chalmers did not pay much atten
tion to the Injury until tho following
spring when he found bo could not uso
bis nrm. Ho never was able to -pitch
many games after that and In 1015
was sent to New York only to bo re
leased shortly after tho training trip.
Put Moran decided to give him an
other chance and regained him nnd ho
won eight games and lost nine In that
season, hut he never was tho Chnlmcrs
of 1011, although onco In n whllo ho
did show strenks approximating his
frrmer grentness. Ho was soon sent
to tho minors, when still under tho
Pat Moran often said that Chalmers
would tyivo been fully ns great as
Alexander had It not been for thnt
damaging tumblo on board ship.
Joe Wood's Arm Gone.
.Too Wood of the Bed Sox was tho
master fllnger of tho American leaguo
In 1012 nnd topped a remarkable sea
sou In the championship raco by pitch
ing Boston to victory In tho lengthy
vorld series thnt year.
Tho strain of that year was eo
severe that Wood's arm gnvo way nnd
ho never was of much account to Bos
ton nfter that, in 101SJ ho won 111
games, but In 101!l could turn In only
1.1 wins, qulto u slump. Later Wood
was sold to Cleveland nnd seeing that
ho could not pitch again ho went Into
,lho outfield and started a second suc
cessful professional career, this tlmo
as n gardener. And yet Wood was
only twenty-three yenrs old when ho
hurt his arm.
