Portland Figures to Be
I Weaker, While Other Clubs
Will Be Stronger
"When the season of 1913 closed the
fans were almost a unit In declaring
that Portland woald come back in
1914 and repeat beyond the question
of a doubt. These conclusions were
based on baseball dope, and there was
little chance for argument. The E'eav
ers had captured the pennant without
being put to a serious test, and it
was generally admitted that McCre
die's 1913 baseball combination was
one of the strongest that ever played
in the Coast league.
However, the chances of McCredie's
club winning next season are not as
bright as they were several months
ago. There are many reasons why the
Portland team does not look as for
midable now as it did at the end of
The northern club will hardly get
the same pitching as It did in 1913.
The loss of Big Bill James is sure to
be felt by the combination, as pitch
ers of his caliber are hard to find in
any minor league. Then, again, Mc-
Credie may lose another player. Cleve
land has the call on the Portland club
for one of its men. and if it exercises
Its option the Beavers will be further
There are three Beaver players
Manager Joe Birmingham of the Naps
has been casting glances at. They
are Outfielder Ty Lober, who proved
"tie of the best hitters in the Coast
league last season. Pitcher Zip
Hagerman and Second Baseman Bill
The Naps are well fortified with in
flelders and outfielders, and they are
likely to take Hagerman, McCredie's
big right hartder of the three.
If Hagerman is taken over by Cleve
land. Portland's pitching staff will be
shattered. James and Hagerman were
two of the best pitchers in the league,
and Portland will be greatly weak
ened by the loss of them.

On the other hand, it looks as if at
least three of the Coast league teams
will be strengthened next season. Los
Angeles surely will be stronger than
It was last year. Owner Henry Berry
realizes that he needs pitchers, and
he is out getting them. He has a
couple of good men coming, and the
Angels are certain to be stronger.
The same may be said of Hap Ho
gan's Tigers. He has landed a couple
of men that are sure to strengthen
his club. The southern clubs look
good at this writing.

The Seals should go better next
season than they went last year. The
club that represented San Francisco
at the end of the year was practi

FADEAWAY SIMPLE, BUT
FEW PITCHERS LEARN
HOW TO CONTROL IT
While I was crossing the continent with the party of world's
tourists several pitchers, especially the American leaguers in the
crowd, asked me to show them how to throw a fadeaway. Many fans
believe that the fadeaway requires some intricate prescription which
is a carefully guarded secret, like that for Russell Ford's spitball
with the double break in it. This is not so. There is no secret about
the fadeaway. Patience and control are the only requirements for it.
Since I have been in the big leagues I have tried to show many
pitchers how to get the fadeaway. Not only have I endeavored to
teach pitchers in the New York club, but also men with other teams,
and none of them have ever been able to reduce it to such a practical
condition that they dared use it in a tight place, practically the only
time it is of any value. Several pitchers have got the break on the
ball, but they never knew how or when it was going to break, so that
it was valueless. "Red" Ames used to be able to produce it once in a
while, and Louis Drucke, formerly with the New York club, came
nearest to it. He could get the ball to break with the greatest fre
quency, but he lacked control.
Three or four years ago a couple of Cincinnati pitchers were
warming up in the corner of the outfield used for that purpose at the
Polo grounds when a game was in progress, and I was out there
taking a little workout. It was toward the end of the season, and the
interest in the game being played was dead. After getting up a good
perspiration, I cut loose with two or three fadeaways.
"Let's see how you do that,'' said Gaspar, the old Red twirler,
who had been watching me from behind.
I showed him how to hold the ball, and he made several attempts
to get it. Twice the curve broke for him, but it was wide of the plate.
Keefe. also of Cincinnati at that time, joined the group.
"Show me," he said. "I'll get it."
I gave him a demonstration, and he worked on it for a time. His
results were not as promising as those obtained by Gaspar.
"I'm going to practice on it. If I could get that slow ball,
Matty," Keefe remarked, as we started for the clubhouses after the
game, "it would add two or three years to my pitching days."
Keefe knew then that he was nearing the end of his playing days,
and he went to work over that fadeaway. The next season he told me
that he had been practicing on it all winter in his home town, but he
could not get it sure enough to use it. And he is out of the big
leagues now. I would have liked to see him get it and last a little
longer. I hate to have them fade out of the big league.
THE PASSING OF PFIESTER
A pitcher that I tried very hard to teach the fadeaway to was
Pfiester, the old left hander of the Cubs. Pfiester was a great twirler
in many ways. He was not physically robust, but he had a wonderful
nerve, and it was on this almost alone that he pitched. He had fair
control, and he, too, thought that if he could get the fadeaway it
would keep him in the big league for some time longer. I showed
him how it was thrown, and he worked hard on it. But he could not
control the ball well enough ever to employ it.
It was only a short time after this that Pfiester passed out of the
me; "but I don't see how you get control of it."
It wa sonly a short time after this that Pfiester passed out of the
big league for good. The story of his passing is worth while:
Frank Chance had never been accused of much sentiment when it
comes to managing a ball club. This is nothing against him. No
•ticcessful manager has ever carried dead wood after he has found
out ft was dead wood. A lot of them are carrying it, but they don't
know it, and they are not the successful managers. I don't expect to
be kept by any ball club myself after I am not able to pull my weight.
Wall, Chance asked for waivers on Pfiester as soon as Jack began
to show signs of slipping, in spite of the fact that Pfiester had done
a good deal toward the Cubs' great success in their most fertile years
of 1906, 1907 and 1908. Jack hated to go, and asked for one more
chance. The Cubs were playing a series at the Polo grounds at the
time, and the Chicago left hander went to his manager.
"Let me work against the Giants," said Pfiester. "Give me one
"Go ahead," replied Chance, "and if you win I'll withdraw the
request for waivers."
Pfiester went into the game and tried as he never had tried
before —a game pitcher, who had done good work, fighting for a little
more baseball life. All of us on the Giants knew the circumstances,
and, in a wajv we hoped that we would lose, but, of course, fought
hard to win.
OLD TIMER FADES AWAY
The old southpaw went steady for a couple of innings. Then he
began to weaken, and we got to him hard. One hit followed another.
He lost control of the ball and passed a couple of men. It was a
veteran making his last fight, and a losing one. Finally he looked at
Chance. He knew what was coming. The old Chicago leader, then
in his prime, walked toward the pitcher's box from his place at first
base, with his mouth set and his shoulders slightly hunched, as was
his habit. He grabbed the ball out of Pfiester's hand. Chance's
methods of removing a pitcher were never very delicate, but he had
no hard words of criticism that day.
"Goodby, Jack, old boy," said Chance. "I'm sorry there wasn't
one more game in you."
Pfiester turned and walked toward the clubhouse.
I showed every one on the world's trip who was anxious to see
how the fadeaway was thrown, but none displayed any promising
signs of mastering it. It is easy to tell any one how far to throw the
fadeaway, but the knack gives the curve. I do not fear that it will
be prevalent in the American league next year, although Benz, Russell
and the rest of the White Sox pitchers know how it is done. Pitching
knowledge is a hard thing to impart.
Most twirlers have developed some particular kind of a curve
which is their specialty. As a rule, it can not be taught to others. It
fits their style of delivery best, and the fadeaway fits mine. But it took
me two years of constant practice to control it. Frequently I have tried
to explain to the best of my ability in writing how the ball is held
and released, so I won't repeat my explanation here. If seasoned
pitchers, used to the tricks of the trade, can't master it, the novice has
not much chance of learning it by correspondence.

"SQUEEGEE" WINS FAXCY
A good example of how the public

In the case of Diamond tires.
Diamond tires have been advertised
with the explanation that the tread
was built on the same principle as
that of a squeegee window cleaner,
which, as most people know, when
drawn over a window pane, wipes the
glass clean. The adaptation of this
principle to automobile tires enabled
the Diamond tires to wipe away slush,
slime, mud or other slippery road cov
erings, giving the tread a solid grip
on the pavement beneath.
The touch of human interest in
likening the tread to a "squeegee
captured popular attention. As a re
sult, dealers are almost invariably
asked for "the tires with the squeegee
tread." So it became a matter of tak
ing on a new name for Diamond tires,
and "Squeegee Tread" Is the result.
