The Speedy Young Gardener of the Nationals, Who Is Electrifying the Fans
Stunts In tho Field. This Youngster Is In the Big
GROOM AT HIS BEST WHEN
FACING HEAVIEST HITTERS
Sam Crawford Is One of
Sir Robert's Principal
Sir Robert Groom, the elongated, at
tenuated toothpick twlrler, backed by a
hitting team, has come into his own.
He is at his best when facing tho
league's greatest hitters. Ho is now
looked upon as the second best pitcher
on tho Climbers' staff, Johnson alono
excelling the splinter pitcher.
There are at least four of the league's
mightiest sluggers who seldom cause
Groom much trouble, though they
Found and hammer and bump the offei
ngs of other pitchers to a fare-you-well.
The lank lad winds his perplex
ing curves around their wands, makes
them fish for his wide benders and
breaks their backs trying to lnnd on his
Sam Crawford, the aged slugger of
the Detroit Tigers, is Groom's principal
victim. Crawford is disgusted from the
start when he knows that Bob Is on the
mound for tho Nationals against tho
Tigers, for Sam Is veiy well aware that
another day Is going by without his
doing anything. .
Proofs Are Many.
Proofs are many of tho marvelous
power Groom holds over tho head of the
Tigers' greatest Hwatter. Even last
year, when the Nationals looked like a
representation rrom an old soldiers'
home, the long lad fooled and toypil
with Crawford as If ho were a veritable
boob from the giass lands.
This season It has been the same story,
and no man on the Held was so happy
when Groom was banished fiom the
mound In Detroit by tho umpire than
the pudgy gardener of the Tigers. He
had got rid of his worst foe nnd might
hope for a blngle or two, though ho got
Ty Cobb, tho Incomparable, Is another
of Groom's victims. Cobb is a terror
to most pitchers, particularly to those
who cannot field their positions or have
little control. When going right, Groom's
control Is excellent and ho knows what
to do with a grounder sent his way, ho
It fast or slow. Oh, yes, Ty gets hits
now and then off Groom, but he counts
them mighty lucky ones and makes no
boasts about them.
When a pitcher can go into a gamo
reasonably certain of stopping two of
his best hitting opponents his chances
for victory are more than good. There
fore, Bobby Groom does not shudder
when carded to face tho Tigers, for he
knows his ability to feazc both Cobb
and Crawford, and they're about tho
whole Tiger team with tho willow.
w Collins Is Another.
If you would see a bright diamond
star look like a bush league boob In a
single afternoon, take a look ut Eddie
Collins when forced to bat against the
winding curves and puzzling spltter
of Bob Groom. The little second baso
man of the world's champion Ath
letics Is one of the most consistent
sluggcjs In the league. He fears no
But when Collins goes up against
Groom, the odds are against his boost
ing the hitting figures that day. He
Just can't seem to get hold of the ball
with any degree of force. He gave
one of these pitiful exhibitions last
week In Philadelphia, going without
a blow all day
The best he could do was to ham
mer a hot grounder to "Buzz" Foster
for a death at flrat. Then he rolled to
Gandll and perished. His lact time up,
with Maggert standing expectantly on
third base, he stood there and looked
at a third strike dart across the pan
at an impossible angle He had been
fooled most Impressively
Ping Bodie a Joke.
Out In Chicago the South Side bugs
are always pulling for Ping Bodie to
shove tho pellet over the garden wall.
The organ grinder from Frisco does
do this occasionally, too, but never
when Bob Groom Is on tho mound
against him Then Ping curls up and
dies, slowly and gracefully.
Tho great Ping Bodie, killer of op
posing pitchers, slaughterer of the
best curves and fast ones. Is a verita
ble Joke when compelled to swing on
that slde-urm curve ball of Groom's,
lie goes out for them like a fisherman.
Even when he happens to land on one
It seldom rolls beyond the infield.
When the Climbers were In Chicago
this spring Bodie rolled four puny
little, grounders to McBrlde in a row.
He never had a chance.
Cobb, Crawford, Collins, and Bodie
make a sweet quartet of diamond

Ty Cobb Holds No Horrors
for Nationals' Effective

done my best wherever I've been. If I
can make good with the Washington
club, I'm going to hang on. If I can't,
the manager Is never going to be able
to say that I didn't try. I'm always
out there doing my best, and I don't
like to read that I didn't try to play

The Washington club should make a
pot of money this season. If Griffith

the most diosptous season In ths hls
torv of the clubi should be experienced

Washington, long tired of suppoitlng
a losing venture, will flock to see the

enough In every department, too, to be
able to hold Its own with the best clubs
In the league. During the home stays
