"I have not seen the Red Sox play
this season, and have had no chanco
to study them Basins: my observa
tions on the figures, I feel confident
that the Giants will defeat the Sox,
nnd It 16 a confidonce borno of the
honest belief tbat we have the best
Ty Cobb says:
"I favor Boston's chances of whi
ning the 1912 world's series, although
I don't believe the Red Sox should
command big odds In the betttns, be
cause baseball is so uncertain that
some little turn of the game 1b liable
to make tho Giants win
j "Boston's strength lies in their won
derful attack, backed up by some star
pitchers. The floldlng of tho Red Sox
Is also very strong and all statistics
favor them over New York. The
Giants have an exceptionally stropg
team and I believe they will make a
much stronger flcht than they did In
the series of 1911. They will go into
the 1912 series knowing the ropes bet
ter, and will settle down to business
much quicker than they did last fall."
Hugh Jennings says:
"The Giants, while lacking the abil
ity of BoBton. may find that tho expe
rience In last year's series offsets Bos
ton's natural advantage. Tho finish
ing polish of a gruelling sories Is hard
to penetrate, and they may actually
rise superior and play better ball than
the Boston outfit on sheer confidence
WONT TAKE TRIP
Pittsburg, Oct. 7 The baseball fans
In Cuba will not see Marly O'Toole
working that arm of fabulous price
during the winter Fred Clarke put a
crimp into Marty's plans when he re
fused a permit for him and Bobby
Bryne to sign up with Umpire Charles
Rlgler. who is going to take a team
to Cuba early in November. Rlgler
called on Clarke and Dreyfus.
Clarke says no baseball player
should Jeopardize his futuro and the
chances of his team by going on barn
storming tours. An accident in ono
exhibition game. Clarke says, may de
stroy a player's future and hurt the
chances of his team.
"These players want to go out play
ing for a month for $350 and ex
penses." said Clarke. "Just offer one
of them ?350 a month in a contract
nnd llston to the roar."
HAD LONG RECORD
When PittBburg traded Tommy
Leach and "Lefty'rLeifleld to tho Chi
cago Cubs for Artie IIofTman and
"King" Cole, one of the greateot trios
of baseball players known In the his
tory of tho game was forever broken.
The trio was composod of Honus
Wagner, Fred Clarke and Tommy
Leach, the "Big Three." It was form
ed 13 years ago. when in tho reason of
1899 Tommy Leach, a fast boy, was
sent to play third bane for the Louls
vlllo Colonels, which team was then
on the National league circuit
For 13 years these three groat play
ers hung together electrifying tho
baseball world, winning four pennante
and one world's championship.
Probably no such trio ever played
togethor as did tho "Mighty" Wagner,
the groat leader, Clarke, and fast and
After playing together iuk Louiavillo

was cut down to eight clubs, and

the National league pennant. In 1903
Pittsburg lost in tho world's cham
pionship series to tho Boston Ameri

Clarke, at the head of tho peerless
trio, kept on and In 1909 again won
the pennant and beat Detroit for tho
Leach always bottod before Clarke,
and Clarke boforo Wagner, and many
a pitcher wont out of the game brok-on-hearted
through the hitting and
base running of the throe. Pittsburg
became known as a threo-raan team
through their great work.
Some Idea of the heart-breaking
paco lod by these men can bo had from
the fact that 6,905 times thoy hit safe
ly after coming to bat no more than
19,043 times; of these 5,905 hits tho
total bases were 8,300, and 940 were
two-baggera, 486 three-bnggero and
156 times their clouts wore good for
the whole circuit. How they rim bases
can be told no better than tie record
of 1,159 steals BhowB.
There great playerB combined han

Handle 18,330 Chancen.
Leach wound up hid gTcat Plttabupj
career agalnet 8t. Louis by sending
a fly to Bvana in right fiold but not
until he had hit two singles and a
three-baee hit, helping Marty O'Toolo
win his game. It was a flttiug end
In Pittftburg for Leach, because 22,500
fans who watched him for ycarB saw
his career In Pirate uniform come to
a glorious close.
As this multitude looked on not a.
soul knew that Wee, who was respon
sible for six of the runs In that game,
would no more drive men ahead of
him and conoh faltering Pirato run
nerfl. In 11 of the 13 years that Leach
was with Pittsburg he made over 100
nits per season, while another year
he made 92. In 1900 he was only in
46 games, making 34 lilts.
WOLGAST IS AFRAID
OF TWENTY ROUNDS
(By E. J. Gelger.)
Chicago, Oct. 7. Has Ad Wolgast
reached tho stage in his pugilistic ca
reer where he fears twenty-round
battles? Docs he find himself slip
ping, or Is it just tho country that
has made him what ho is?
Those arc the questions that local
critics are asking themselves today
as a result of the champion's recent
actions. It is well known that until
Ad hit California he was classed
among the second raters. Ho made
his start there and he finished as a
champion there Now he is slighting
tho boys who gave him his first boost
Recently Tom Jones and Jim Cof
froth got together and arranged for
a Thanks&lvlng day match, in which
the champion was to star There was
some sort of a misunderstanding and
Jones journeyed to Now Orleans to
sign his charge there. Immediately
Coffroth got busy and when he and
Jones again got on the wire. Thomas
assured him that the turkey day dale
would be filled and that he and Ad
would be in Frisco In time to get
Into shape. Since that understanding
Jones has hooked his youngster up
with Joe Mandot in- a ten-round af
fair, to be staged In or near New
Orleans He is negotiating with
Philadelphia for a six-round contest
Winnipeg wants him for a short .if- 1
fair and ono of the northern MIchi- I
gan buigs would match Ad to box at
ono of the fairs. And Jones Is go- l
Ing right ahead with these proposed !
Ho says his charge wants to fight !
four times before January 1. In a
littlo over an hour's talk hero with.
Tom not a word was mentioned about
tho Frisco affair. "What are they
doing for yon out in Los Angeles?"
waa one of the questions asked Tom.
His answer was Bhort, If not sweet"
"I really don't know."
Johnny Kllbane, ifeatherwoiht
champion, has again declined an offer
to box Charlie White, local feather
weight Billy Gibson of New York
offered the champion tho match, but
tho latter said he wasn't Just ready.
Somehow or other, Charles cannot got
Kilbane since White defeated Shu
gruo and Dundee handily.
Eddie McGooEty'B manager today
wired here, saying that he Is going
to make a desperate attempt to hook
Mike Gibbons on a wager Eddie
'knock out the St Paul sensation wllh-
I In ten rounds.
Johnny Coulon Is considering an-'
other trip to Los Angeles and San
! Francisco for matches. He has wrlt-
j ten McCarcy and Coffroth, he says.
SUGGESTS PLAN TO
Portland, Ore, Oct. 7 W W Mc
Credie, president of the Portland
baseball club, would revolutionize the
organization of baseball He would
erect a baseball structure around
each of the sixteen major league
clubs, force each club to recruit from
its own house or family, establish
; fixed salaries for tho players In every
league except the majors and elim
inate all financial operations regard
ing playei'3 except those of salaries.
"Tho trouble with baseball of to
day, particularly Niu the leagues un
der the A classification, is that many
of tho clubs cannot afford to pay
the salaries necessary to maintain a
good team," suys MsCredie.
"Baseball is badly in need of a
reorganization, with clubs usually
graded downward Many towns are '
ti'ying 10 support B and C ball which
should be suppcrtinp a D or E club,
with salaries from ?40 to $75 per
"The plan would be to effect a re
organisation, placing the towns In
leagues where thev can support the !
ball, fix a salary for every msn in,
those leagues, and build" them up 1
around the various sixteen major j
league clubs' By tho minor league
clubs being associated with tho six
teen major organizations each has a
definite field for recruiting players.
"While 1 would fix the salaries In
each club at a figure In harmony with
tho finances of the league, and would
pay each man the samo sum, the In
centive to rise, so noceBsary In tho
samo, 1b still there, for every man
has a chanco to roach tho top.
"My schemo would permit each ma
jor loagvte club to roach down through
Its chain of subordinate clubs and
pick up tho man It needs, not hold
ing it to tho A club Immediately un
der It. The A club or clubs com
prising tho last step in the ladder
would be entitled to reach downward
to the first steps If necessary and se
cure recruits with not a cent paid for
the men In any case."
