SELF-MADE BALL MAGNATE.
Charles II Ebbets of the Brooklyn
club is a self-made baseball magnate.
When the Brooklyns, owned by Byrne!
Doyle and Abcll, played at old Wash-'
I TUB BEST IN THE CLASS
1Po.tgfor25o. CtutTT.PpjooT&Co.. Ma,m
ington park 25 years ago Ebbets was
a ticket seller and schedule maker
He made up his mind oven then lo
become the owner of the club some
day and be never stopped trying.
When the Brooklyns were consoli
dated with the rival Players' league
team at Eastern park Ebbets was
made secretary nnd when C. II. Byrne
died he was elected president. He
held that office nfter the Brooklyn
Baltimore deal was consummated "M
years ago. and gradually he bought
up the stock until today he controls
90 per cent of the club.
Somebody asked Ebbets recently if
he would sell the Brooklyn club and
ho roplied: '"If I did what would I
do to pass the time? Baseball Is :i
life study with me and I would be
lost without It "
(By James Clarkson )
Gentlemen Jimmy 1-avender of
the Cubs may toss hi. bonnet into the
arena in the presence of any pitcher
without fear of having It hooted
around. That goes .for mighty Reu
ben Marquard. the ' nineteen straight"
hero 0' the Giants.
National league enthusiasts have
beea watching Marquard these many
weoks. Rube's work has been mar
velous. Marvelous Is the word. Still
he was Iuck to keep this straight
string of wins, for he deserved to lose
nbout four of them. No knock on
Rube, Just the truth.
Now, however, folks are keeping
one eye on Mr. John LaAendcr of Mr.
Chanco's galaxy of stars, and the oth
er on Rube. There are two to watch
Instead of one.
Over on the West Side, where fans
for some time have been envious of
the South Side because it boasted
some pitchers, they are tickled almost
to death. Lavender is the favorite
color. Take notice on ladles' day next
Lavender got a late start as a sen
sation, but once started, goodness,
how that boy has pitched! He is a
"whalo" and a "bear," as the salary
fans say, all rolled into one.
June 24 Lavender hit his stride. He
lost a 1 lo 0 game that day to Frommo
of the Reds. Cincinnati counted in
tho fifth Inning. Four days later, a
Friday, he shut Pittsburg out hero
with one hit, 3 to 0. The following
Mouday he blanked them again in 12
Innings, L to 0. Vestcrday he calcl
mined the Cards, 4 to 0. Some pitch
ing! He has won but six games out
of ten this season, but he'll beat that
percentage to a certainty.
And to cap the climax he downed
tho mighty Rube Marquard and broke
what promised to be the greatest win
ning streak in major league history.
Chauce has certainly got another
wonder In this youngster who should
prove a big factor in again winning
the championship for the Cubs about
SILVER FLINT WAS
One of the greatest outfielders that
ever scampered for the sizzling long
drives was discussing catchers recent
ly. He was George' Gore, In his day
one of the fleetest fielders, heaviest
hitters, and finest ball players. Cen
torriolder ou the famous Chicago
White Stockings that under Anson
won pennant after pennant, Gore was
in a class by himself.
"Frank Flint of our team." Baid
Gore, "was the greatest catcher who
ever lived. He knew more than an
other man with the mask. He had
the greatest head of any mnn in the
business. Nobody before or since could
"Every pitcher he ever handled he
made ?t tar. Look at Fred Gold
smith and Larry Corcoran. Neither
of these men ever showed much when
they were with other clubs Once
Frank took them in hand they all de
veloped Into stars. He could make
cracks out of every pitcher who ever
took tho slab. Show mo the back
stop today who can take any pitcher
and make a marvel out of him. -1
"Goldsmith was able to pitch for i
for several years after his arm wa3
like a plate of Ice cream because he
had Flint behind the bat. Corcoran,
you know, was a slightly built man
and as cranky a the dickens.
'The White Stockings were out In
California at tho time that Hurlburt
was president o' the club Corcoran
had been heard about by our men.
but his sour disposition had queered
him with a- number of them. Hurlburt
was loath to take him. However, no
talked with Silver. 'Get him.' said
Frank, and I'll do the rest.' So Hurl
butt took Larry. Our president was
a big man physically, and about as

"The boss called Corcoran to him.
look hero" said the president, point
ing to Flint, 'that fellow Is your boss.
You do everything he asks you and
don't you disobey him, or I'll fire you
right off tho reel '
Corcoran started. He obeyed im
plicitly and everything went along
finely Larry was soon ono of the best
twirlcrs in the league. One day ho
got one of his cranky fILs on him'. Ho
wouldn't obey the signals and crossed
Silver several times. The latter took
off his mask and went into the box.
" 'Larry,' he said quietly, but his
eyes were snapping, 'you cither do
what I say or you go straight Into tho
clubhouse I don't care which you do.
Now got busy,' Larry turned around
and became reasonable.
"After the game Hurlburt was sit
ting in the grandstand. Corcoran came
out of the clubhouse, dressed and the
boss was waiting for him. He called
the pitcher to him. "Look here, Law
rence.' said the old man, 'didn't I tell
you that Frank was your boss Now,
if you let another yip out of you like
vou did today you'll be firod so quick
ly your head will swim.'
"Corcoran never bothered again. He
was only a fair twirlcr. But Frank
had him trained to the minute. Yes.
there was never a backstop ever lived
could touch Frank Flint," ended
AMOS STRUNK IS
Says the Philadelphia North Ameri
can: Amos Strunk, who for threo
seasons has been reserve outflolder
for the Athletics, Is doing fine all
around work as a regular this season
It was only a question of Strunk's
knee uiendin? for Amos to get a fixed
post with the raonarchB of baseball.
Strunk was badly Injured In 1910,
when he was afflicted with water on
tho knee. It hurt his play that season
and last year This spring Strunk re
ported to Mack without showing the
faintest trace of he old rouble. He has
outgrown the hurt and can now use
the leg with the greatest freedom.
As a result Strunk has played bril
liant ball. Always a grayhound for
speed, Strunk has been unusually fast
this year, because he doesn't have to
favor his knee any more.
While Strunk decan't rank as an ex
tremely hard hitter, he is a fair bats
man. He Is a capital performer on
tho paths, and can go from first to
third on almost anything. This makes
him a Btcaxly run-getter.
In fielding, Strunk doesn't have to
go to school to any one. He is easily
the best ground covering outfielder
the Mackmen have had since tho days
of David Fultz From the Fultz era
to the present time, no Mnck outfield
er has ever approached Amos in fleld-

WILL COBB KEEP
UP HIS AVERAGE
Will Ty Cobb be as great a hitter
with the Tigers fighting to get Into
the first division as he was with the
Tigers fighting for a pennant?
In other words, will Ty bat as well
under adverse conditions as when con"
ditlons were in his favor?
Cobb made the Tigers, and the Ti
gers made Cobb. His wonderful all
round work made his team league
champions three times. The Tigers'
three pennants came after hard, close
fights, and with a player of loss abil
ity than Cobb In his place the Tigers
would never have returned winners.
DDzens of players who were only
ordinary with losing clubs have been
big stars on winning clubs. Cobb,
great as he Is, is likely to be affected
the same way.
The Tigers, as ball teams run, are
di'e to two or three seasons of ad
versity It may be longer. Jennings
has tried ever since he became man
ager of the Tigers to develop a corps
of young pitchers without success.
These two or three Ecasons may see
Cobb's wondorful enthusiasm decrease.

Heretofore Princeton has usually

RUBE'S RECORD IS
BROKEN BY YOUTH
While statisticians of the big ring
have been hurrahing and digging
through dust In search of the heroic
accomplishments of hurlers In the
past, caused by the phenomenal work
of one Rube Marquard of the Giants,
who attained his nineteenth succes
sive victory, they have a, little record
down In Dixie which, while It was not
made in a major league, nevertheless
was under the rules nnd regulations
of organized baseball.
A glance through the records for
the 1904 baseball year, as compiled by
A G Spalding, shows whero one Bax
ter Sparks pitched 33 games for Yazoo
City in the Dolta league that year and I
21 of those games were won in sue- If
cesBlon. Sparks won 25 out of the 33 jS
games. Nine of them were shut-out fj
Sparks is a graduate of tho Unlvcr- U
slty of Mississippi and a Mississippi j2
boy He was given a tryout by Mem- ji
phis. He later pitched for Atlanta Mj
and is now pitching for Vicksburg in
