TY COBB IS SLOWING
UP, SAYS JENNINGS
Georgia Peach Is Not as Fast on
Bases as Formerly.
Last Season a Perfect Peg by Oppos
ing Backstop Had Ty by Safe
Margin Still Knows How to
Slug the Ball Hard.
And now comes nn fidnillon from
Hugh Jennings that Ty Cobb, clinm
plon batsman of tho American league,
Is "slowing up." Hero Is what the
Detroit manager says In a Scranton
"I noticed lust year for tlio first
tlmo that Cobb Is slowing up on tho
bases," Mild Jennings. "On Infield
hits that ho usually beat out or made
tho piny nt first unusually cloo Ty
was being nnllcd by a stop Inst sea
son. "I also noticed that In base steal
ing ho didn't hnvo his old speed.
When nt his best It required n per
fect throw to get Cobb stealing sec
ond, nnd oven then It was often n
glvc-nnd-tnko proposition with tho
umplro when It came to making the
decision. Yot last season a perfect
peg by tho opposing catcher usually
had Ty by n snfo margin.
"It Is only natural thnt Cobb would
begin to slow up. Any player will
nftor going through such n long and
nctlvo career as Cobb has enjoyed.
"However, he still knows how to
hit tho ball and has few superiors
In tho oiitllold, and even with Ills de
creased speed ho Is faster than a ma
jority of players. That Is why I still
consider him tho most vnlunblo player
In tho game."
