Wllholt m.itle his plunge Into major

burned up the minors nnd won another
major league berth. This tlmo It was
tho Boston Ileil So. that gave blm the

ihunire man thu rlplit to the left sldo

IIcIiik u rl.'ht-liaiided hitter lie hail
developed his rljiht leg to carry the
support of Ids attaclc. lie had to undo
this and make his left-leg muscles do
for him what his tight had.
To change he started out to lie n
southpaw In everything he did. He
threw the hnll, chopped wood, drove
spikes ami ate with the left hand.
He winked at his traiiwfni mutton for
three years and dually received the
recognition he was after. He got on
In the majors.
Muggins In his host day wns not u
good thrower yet lie hecutne u grent
second liasemau. 1!y using his hralns
overtime he learned that standing In
u position nearer left Held than that
occupied by other second basemen
would allow him to come In on almost
every hall lilt to liN territory and get
It with his left liiind. He wns rarely
forced to go to his right on u play
and always was In n position to get
the hall to llrst.
What does the future hold for .Toe
Wllholt? Is the National more success,
fill with these comebacks than the
American, because of more careful
handling, or Is Dame Kortune ulwnys
with the senior league?
Itotish, Itlng and Kller or the lteds
all had a taste of American league life,
but they failed to clinch a berth. Who
will doubt their right to a place In
baseball stardom now? Was It care
ful mauagementV Was It plain luck?
Hill KUIefer Is another example. The
Hi-owns had Hill once, hut he failed
to stick. Joe Wllholt Is going to be
watched this season, and If he shows
the slightest signs of class such as that
which marked Ids woik at Wichita,
he will be giahhed by no less than
live National league club owners and
all of them lme promised to give him
every chance In the world.

MAINSPRING OF TEAM
IS BRAINY RECEIVER
Managers Place Too Much Im
portance on Pitching.
Catcher Corresponds to Quarterback
on Football Team, Says Larry
Lajoie In Best Position to
Although ho Is out of baseball. Lar
ry Lajoie, former star batsman of the
American league, Is having it lot of
fun watching tho major leaguo hurl
ers, trying to cut out tho freak deliv
ery, as per orders of the powers at
their big session early this year. Ln
Jole has not been heard to speak his
mind on the matter directly, but ho
did statu recently that major leaguo
managers placed entirely too much Im
portance on pitching and not enough
on tho catching department.
Tho big Frenchman says ho wants
to be thoroughly understood aa being
Jn fuvor of urst-class pitching. Uut
the catcher Is tho real mainspring
of any bnll club, after nil," said Lar
ry, "becauso ho corresponds to tho
quarter back on a football team."
Lajolo was In a reminiscent mood.
He recited somo of the wonderful
pitching accomplishments of Cy Young,
and tlitn asked how many of these
wonderful games Cy would have an
nexed had It not been for the work
of Chief Klmmcr and O'Connor. Hoth
of these receivers were of the brainy
type, and not Infrequently made It
possible for Young to work out of a
hole by tho exercise of a llttlo strategy
at the plate.
"I know pitchers must have some
thing or they can't got by," quoth Lar
ry, "but I also contend that many

kept on trying and practicing control
until he seems to have reached tho
stage where he can engrave bis namo
In the hall of fame.
What has brought about the marked
Improvement In Oescliger's work Im be
lieved to be his switch from the Phil
adelphia to the Hoston club. While
with the Phillies he was unnbte to get N
avvny successfully, although at times
ho showed signs of being as great a
pitcher as Alexander. Ho could not
master Ids speed, but la said to bavo
done bo since be Joined Genrgu Stal
Battled Twenty-Six Innings.
Oeschger is tho pitcher who battled
Leon Catloru of tho Hrooklyns 20 In
nings to n tlraw May 1. That was by
fur the greatest exhibition of twirling
he ever gave In thu National leaguo
nml was an Indication of what quality
of work ho Is capable of doing when
right. When ho completed that rec
ti! d-brcaklug battle he had completed
C." Innings of toll on tho slab, and had
allowed only two earned runs In that
tlmo against three different ball teams.
This Is not n record, but It Is almost
gootl enough to he one, and Is a feat
that few pitchers In the major leaguea
by with u creditable average If the
man catching them Is onto his busi
ness and gives them the help that lies
within his power to give them."
According to Lajoie, thu catcher 1ms
the best opportunity to get Information
on the butter. Not only can bo get
Information on the man at bat, but ho
can communicate with tho pitcher
through u code of signals. Larry says
he Would like to lmvo au expression
from some of tho star, dingers of a
few years back. "I nover sought their
opinion on this matter," he declared,
"but I would ho willing to lay u llttlo
bet that uveryono of them will give
their catcher a lot of credit for their
success." Lajoie predlcta tho umpires
will become more disgusted with tho
rules against freak pitching than tho
pitchers themselves, becauso tho In
dicator handlers will bo obliged to
watch every move of the mound man.
"Wonder what will bu next?" asked
the veteran as tho discussion drew
to u close.
