Gotch has made " specialty of the
toe hold, and that is why he is able
to employ it with such dire results.
It is to him what the "strangle hold"
was to "Strangler" Lewis - years
ago. The strangle hold has been
placed under the ban. and when men
like Muldoon begin to agitate against
the toe hold it is very likely to find
its way unto the discard.
Jim Jeffries started it. and now
other veterans of the fighting game
are falling in line.
Bob Fitzsimmons has given out that
he would like to come back "just
once," and try his hand with some of
the white hopes who at present in
fest the game. He has expressed a
preference for Luther McCarty.
If the records state the case cor
rectly, Fitzsimmons began his fistic
career back in New Zealand 33 years
ago. It is 23 years since he had his
first match in this country, and that
in its If entitles the Cornishman to
th long-service medal.
His first contest in America was
with Billy McCarthy at the California
Athletic club, in this city. If he boxes
Luther and makes it his farewell ap
pearance he will have had a McCarty r

Cobb drew annually $9064 for his

Sheckard should be joyful news ,
to the Cardinal fans. Manager Hug-
gins has not decided just when Sheck- I
erd will take up defensive work. It is
true that the ex-Cub is 34 years old
and on the shady side of his big league
career; but it is also true that Sheck
ard still is a ball player of great value.
He batted to the tune of .246 lasf sea- j
son, and while this doesn't sound very
hefty, the fans would do well in not
ing that he led the league in bumming
his way to first via the four-ball
route. He also ranked well near' the
top in runs scored.
Sheckard a Shrewd Fly Chaser
Sheckard is one of tbe sorewdest
fly-chasers in the game, -he draws
a salary in proportion to his ability
and that's the reason he drew a boil

now that he has Bresnahan, has too
many high-priced ball players. He
was forced to pass Sheckard up to cut
We venture another guess: That
Lee Magee will be showing on second
bast before July 1. and that Sheckard
will be doing regular duty in the out
field by that same date.
Another angle to be considered is
that Hugsins, in his first attempt as
manager, hasn't an easy job. H.-'s
