Schafer Maks Good With the
Giants; Is Promising Youngster
CaKfoniM U Expected to Be a Star Next Season With Prospects of Being
the Best Shortstop in the Profession.
By SAM CRAKE.
NKW YORK. N. Y.. Nov. 19.,
Arthur J. Sharer, the Giants'
substitute Infielder, is not only
the class of the National league cham
pions second string men. but the most
promising 3 oungster in the ranks .of
the parent organisation. The chances
are that the young Californian will be
a star next season and establish him
self as one of the best shortstops in
That he will be on the Giants' reg
ular lineup by replacing Fletcher is
almost a foresone conclusion. Ho
would have done so last year, but
when going at top speed and showing
sensational form he was suddenly
called home to Los Angeles on account
of the illness of his mother. His best
friend died while he was on his way
home, and her death was such a shock
to the young player and home boy that
he did not rejoin his club for many a
day. and when he did he was not him
self until near the close of the cham
pionship season. He was not called
on to resume his position on the team
b the sympathetic manager, McGraw.
Possesses Great Speed.
Shafer's strongest point is his
speed, that is little short of phenom
enal. It is a feature that invariably
appeals to McGraw, who wants speed.

The youngster has a splendid throw

a tossing affair.
No coach has attempted to use the

about one pass in ten succeeds and for

by getting the opposing pitcher "in the
hole." His fellow players on tne
Giants consider that Shafer has as
good an eye if not better than any
player in the business.
"He can size up a ball to within a
half inch of the plate," is what Mc
Graw said of his "find" last year.
Recommended by Saedgrass.
Shafer joined the Giants in 1949,
having been strongly recommended to
lfcGraw by Fred Snod grass, who had
seen him play in college games In
southern California. The youngster
was phenomenally list when he re
ported Ui Martin, Tex., but he could
not be made to look upon baseball as
a serious proposition. He was just a
"kid" in 1909, and he had not got over
his youthful frivolities in 1910. But
he gave such splendid promise that
Mcwaw held on to him, knowing that
he would settle down in the end.
Fred Tenney, who was a Giant when
Shafer first joined the team, as a
great admirer of the "native son," and
fully appreciated what was in the boy.
and when he became manager of the
Boston Nationals he made a deal with
McGraw for Shafer in exchange for
Shean. Shafer got wind of the trade,
and while he didn't refuse to join the
Bostons, he spoiled the deal by ac
cepting an offer to coach a Japanese
college team of baseball players. He
made a big success of it, and, not
withstanding his youth, he was com
plimented by being called "the father
of baseball in Japan."
He returned from Japan early In
1911, but refused to report to the
Giants, still fearing he would be sent
to Boston. He straightened oat matters
with the New York club, however, so
that he reported to McGraw in Marlin,
Tex, last spring.
no other attack an amazing degree of
perfection might be attained.
For three downs, nothing save in
tercepting carries a penalty. ,On no
pass is less than ten yards-made, and
on some as much as 40 or SO. With a
team that had played basketball all
Winter and had been trained on for
ward passes all season, a percentage
of one successful play in four would
seem fairly easy.
Moreover, the incessant use of this
play would put the defence up in the
air to meet it, and a monumental score

ABOUT DANISH FIGHTBRS.
Santa Rita, N. M-, Nov. 16, 1912.
Editor El Paso Herald:
A few days aea I notice an ar
ticle by Thomas S. Andrews in your
sporting edition entitled. "Battling
Nelson, the Only Durable Dane." Tour
article read: "There may be other
durable Danes, but Battling- Nelson is
the only one who has shown the goods
in the ring."
Now here I wish to correct you.
I wish to call your attention to at
least two other notable Danes who
have made their history in the Ameri
can prize ring inside the last ten years.
The first one is none other than Cy
clone Johnny Thompson. I wish you
would read Battling Nelson's book on
his battles in the prise ring and you
will find out very soon, that he calls
Mr. Thompson a countryman of his,
and he is about as durable as the
The second one I wish to call your
attention to is "Fighting Dick" Nel
son, whose right name is Richard
Christcnsen, former lightweight cham
pion, of Denmark, Norway, and Swe
den, but later of Brooklyn. N. Y., also
a great fighter, but he never made a
great record. He formerly belonged
to the Hermad Athletic club, of Copen
The reason I write this is because I
wish to give every nation and every
body what there is coming to them.
I don't notice the Irish getting much
since other nations Vent into the box

"Fighting Dick" Nelson was also
welterweight champion ror a couple of
years. Yours respectfully,

Larry Doyle did not lead the Giants
in batting last sason. but he did show
the way to the rest of his team mates
in driving in runs ability that helped
the McGrawites to many a victory and
that undoubtedly procured for him
many votes from the Chalmers jury as
being the National league's most val

the Giants last season, that being the

club batted in 50 or more runs, Johnny
Murray ranking next to Doyle, with

"Chief" Meyers fifth, with 58, and
Seals Becker sixth, with jl.
Doyle found the St. Louis and Bos
ton pitchers the easiest, and the Chi
cago pitchers the hardest, to hit last
season. The man who won the Na
tional league trophy hit at a .377 clip
in the series with St. Louis and with
Boston, while in the games with the
Cubs, he batted, only .280. Doyle's
average against the Brooklyn twirl
ers was .Mfe aginst the Pittsburg
pitchers .308, against the Cincinnati
curvers. .302 and against the Philadel

Doyle made five hits in one game
last season, procuring three, singles, a
double and a triple off Fromme, Keefe
and Fletcher, of Cincinnati, on June 5.
