House-Cleaning Promised for Tigers to Cost $50,000 Groom heeds Exercise
No Matter How Strong Their Rivals' Start, Those Nervy Climbers Never Lose Heart
FRANK NAVIN TO
fflD $5010 IN
Declines to Say Who Will
Manage Team In Nine
TO BE CONTENDER
Pitchers, Infielders, and Catchers
Required To Make Perfect
Turner, 3b. x
Frank Navln, president of the Detroit
tfungaleers, is going to spend $50,000
building up his team in order to have
It a pennant contender in 1913. He con
fesses it. admits it before a -waiting
-world. He declines to say, however,
that Bill Donovan and not Hughey Jcn
Jilngs will have charge of the Tigers
next season, but says that Detroit will
lie in the race from start to finish, if
fnoney will do the deed.
'The situation regarding Manager
Jonnlngs," says Navln. "has not
changed since last spring. I do not
hold him responsible for the poor show
ing of the club this year. In my opinion
he Is a capable manager."
However, the Tigers are In tor a
thorough housecleanlng during the
coming winter. The work of the team
this year has been most disappointing
and Detroit refuses to endure a loser.
Blx or seven men are due to change
their scenes of athletic endeavor when
1918 rolls around.
"We need pitchers, . Infielders. and
outfielders," sayB Navln. "It is a dif
ficult task to get the right men, and
Jt will probably tako us some time, but
the club will make every effort to get
the right men. We count on spending
150,000 or $60,000 for new players, and
hope by so doing to make Detroit a
contender next season."
It Is expected that Del Gainer will
never again appear In a Tiger uniform.
Mis Injured wrist Is bothering him, and
ho plans to have the bone scraped In
an effort to get back Into condition.
However, neither Navln nor Jennings
bxpects to have him in the game again,
fend 'It would not be surprising to have
the crack first baseman retire from
Meanwhile, George Marlarty will held
down the first corner, proving a capa
ble successor to Gainer. However, Mo
rlarty has played bis last season In
Detroit, according to report, and will
be supplanted In 1913 by a better nltter.
The Tigers next seaBon should be a
whollv now ball club, with some chance
of staying in the float division from
start to finish.
The noor showing of Sir Robert Groom
yesterday against the Naplanders Is
credited to his lack of hard work dur
ing the last week. Manager Griffith Is
worrying not at all over Groom's condi
tion, and says that he will be back thero
winning games In a few dayB.
"Groom's Injury kept him from work
ing out." said Griffith, "and that's why
Jio didn't have anything yesterday wnen
lie started that game.
"But the showing made by Cashlon
more than pays up for Groom's fall
from grace. Cashlon never looked bet
ter In his life than he did yesterday
when he got down to work. He could
eaclly have gone through the game,
but we needed Schaofer to make a pos
sible hit with the bases filled. That's
the only reason Cashlon was taken out.
Cleveland couldn't do a thing with him.
"Cashion is going to be another Wal
ter Johnson. The boy works hard to
overcome his weaknesses and some day.
and that day is near, too. he's going
to be in there taking his turn on the
mound and winning a majority of his

FALL IN CHICAGO
Rube's" Record Broken By
Weird Noise Made By
"Rube" Marquard's record has been
made. It Is nineteen victories without a
single defeat. In Chicago the great run
of victories made bv this sensational
southpaw was brought to an end when
McGraw sent him In against Jim lav
ender, the Cub recruit. Marquard was
knocked out of the box In the sixth
Inning, and the handicap which Tesreau
took up was too great a one for him to
save Marquard's record. .
Marquard's record is a new one for
modern baseball. Had he been able to
win yesterday he would have set one
for all time, but Just as there always is
when a ball player goes down to defeat
there was a Jinx on hand which Mar
quard couldn't conquer. And what do
you think this Jinx was? An Insane
woman had escaped from the detention
house and climbed a tree outside the
ball park. From her aerial perch she
yelled and screeched at New York's
pride till he was completely beaten.
"That poor woman's shrieks affected
me more than all the yelling Inside the
park," Marquard said after he had
taken his place on tho bench.
Win From Africans
LONDON, July 11. Three Important
cricket matches were decided yester
day. England defeated the South Afri
cans In easy fashion by 174 runs. The
Australians won from a weak team rep
resenting Scotland, by a margin of 296
runs and In the great annual lntervar
slty match Cambridge defeated Oxford
by three wickets.
