Not League Loyalty, but Opinion
Formed Upon Careful Study of
Baoeball Tloers Had Hard
Luck at Start of Season.
Manager Clark Grimth of tho Wash
ington American leaguo team, In dis
cussing bneball tho other evening ex
pressed tho belief Unit the White Sox
would defeat tbo Cincinnati Reds and
Gave his reasons for his choice. It
was not leaguo loyalty In any sense,
but nn opinion based upon careful
study of baseball that tbo Washington
"To begin with," Knld Grimth, "I
have not seen tho Reds play this sea
son. I know some of tbo older men
nnd know what they can do. I do
know tbo Whlto Sox and 1 know what
they can do. I have had practical
demonstrations of whnt they can do.
Tho Whlto Sox have every essential
of n championship baseball team.
They bavo n whirlwind nttack, a won
derful defense, and every move they
make Is directed by keen baseball
"There Is no fluko about tho posi
tion of tho White Sox. It Is true that
the Tigers had n bit of tough luck In
tho start of the season, but, Just tho
same, the Chicago team Is a real,
blown-ln-tbe-glnss club. They lead the
league In hitting, base running, scor
ing runs, extra base bits and every
thing else. When they set the highest
standards In those things wo can only
conclude thnt they aro champions.
"Just take their batting order first.
Nemo I.elbold Is n lend-off man of tho
type, lie 1 bard to pitch to and has
a good eye. It the bolls uro bad he
won't take u cut at them. If they aro
in he Is ns liable to crack It for two
or three as ho Is to get a single. Then
thero Is IMdle Collins. Collins is
about the greatest occond-Mickcr that
tho game ever produced. Hn Is n
great hit-and-run man; or ho can
stand In and slug. You know a good
hit-and-run player does not 'mash tho
ball when that play Is on. Uo meets
the ball and punches It. Collins can
run the bases, too.
"Then there Is no less a person than
Buck Weaver. Ruck Is about as good
as Collins. I think he Is the greatest
third baseman In the world today,
no can go and get a ball, be can
throw, he has lino hands and Is smart.
Then comes Joe Jackson. Jackson Is
bitting .:t.n, and Is liable to bust one
clean out of the lot. Happy IVIseli Is
hitting about .'JOO now, but ho Is u
dangerous factor. Chick (laiidll Is a
hard hitter and Is plnlng wonderful
ball right now. Don't let any Mmllow
skulls tell you that Chick Is not n
"It has been Mild," continued (irlff,
"that If It were not Tor lMdlo Clcotto
and Claude Williams the So would
bo nowhere. I'eibaps that Is tight,
but you can take It from me that If It
were not for the White Sox Clcotto
and Williams might not be anywhere.
When a pitcher tan go In tlieio and
know ho has the Mirt of team that If
t'.io opposition makes three runs his
mob will make four It gives him the
heart to do big thliu.". That Is the
typo of men the White Sox are. They
nover stop fighting.
"i)efenslely the Sox are marvels,
and nothing less. I am going to tell
you something now that may surprise
joti," said Orlff earnestly "I am going
to tell you that Happy Kelt-ch Is the
greatest center fielder In bns-eball."
"Rut there Is Trls Speaker," piotest
ed tho writer.
"I know theie Is Speaker," replied
Griff. "I know nil about Speaker; ho
Is u great ball player, but ho Is not
ono whlt better than Felsrh, and I
think that Felseh Is Just a bit better
than be. Mind nu, I am talking of
defensive woik now. It Is practically
Impossible to hit a ball oor Kelsch's
