PITCHERS FROM GAME
Brainy Moundsman With Good

Jesce Tannehlll, Former Red Sox
Southpaw Hurler, Says Freak
Pitching Should Be Barred
Forever From Baseball.
"Kllinlniite clieathiK pltchem from

Ten pounds lighter than when he
wus with tliu Kcd Sox buck In 1003
and 11X11, Taniiehlll was In llotttou for
the first thnu In 11 years, flu is now
forty-live years old, feels ns piod as
uhen he helped .flmmy Collins win
the pennant In llM)i.
Although now hut a coach, this for
mer star southpaw, who also could
lilt the hall home In the old days, has
many views about the pime of today
which are Interesting. Having been
a great pitcher, ho knows many angles,
and there Is no doubt but that he Is
going to help Oavvy Cravath's pitch
"I think freak deliveries should
have been barred from baseball be
fore this season. They have handi
capped the game considerable, be
causu pitchers who go into the box
With reslu In one pocket ami talcum
powder In the other, along with vas
eline or paratllii on their pants are try
ing to get b. with such methods.
"Without Mich methods to help them,
the pitchers lit the futuru will have
to be there, as wo were In thu old
dajs. Ability to pitch will have to
be shown all the time and 1 am con
lldent tlie Mime will be better.
"There Is no doubt In my mind but
that the fri.ik pitchers of today can
get along unhout their llxlngs.
"If they have a good arm and nro
smart they run get by. So far 1
have not Ik on able to work with a
freak dellw-rv pitcher, because the
1'hllllos do ncir boast of one. If there
was one on (be Mulf I would help him
to develop Into a real pitcher without
tliu tricky MiitV."

lengue, was put out of business nfter
thu season of 1015 by the Natlonnl

It Is worthy of note that tho Fed
eral League only developed four real
players, and theso nro all outllelders,
namely: Kauff, Itousch, Tobin anil
Thick, and of theso only Tobin was an
ucttial Federal league discovery and
he had to go to tho minors to bo

settles that league's claims to major
