Bankers Who Would Like To
Buy the Boston Outfield
When a couple of bankers pet
their heads together and begin to
talk about a deal involving gay
$50.,i0i) or more, you can gamble
that they are talking about some
thJng worth while. For despite
any opinions you may have to the
contrary, bankers know the value
of "Iron men."
Two bankers were talking the
other day. Up to a certain point
they agreed. One admitted that,
to swing the deal would l>- worth
$50,000 to him. The other in
slated that to put it through ne
would have to be sighted to a
whole lot more than $50,000.
These two bankers are better
known in another profession.
One of them,, the vice president
of the Washington Park bank in
Chicago, is J. Garland Stahl, man
ager of the Boston Red Sox. The
other is a director in a Scranton,
P., bank, and is commonly known
as Hughey Jennings, manager of
the Detroit Tigers, and the only
man to win three American
league pennants in a row.
Their talk was on the Boston
outfield. Speaker, Lewis and
Hooper, the greatest aggregation
of pasture patrolmen to be found
on any team In the country.
Jennings opined that he would
QUICK, WATSON! THEY'RE

"Fork-ball" Bert Hall, recent

Is whispered, Is now under orders
to skip back to "Phllly" in the
spring to warm up with the Na
tionals, is wanted for the rest of
this season by Mr, Dusdale of tne
Seattle (Hants.
Papa Dug seea something in
the work of Hall which leads him
to believe Bert can make some
opposition Northwest league slug

THORPE WILL TRY FOR

willingly give $50,000 for the
trio. Stahl lust laughed. He
realizes that this outfield is the
real backbone of his ball club and
that it would be suicidal to part
with them for twice 950,000.
Here is Jennings' line of rea
soning. With an even break of
luck, the three ought to improve
for the next seven years. Speak
er, the oldest, is only 23 and Jen
nlngs figures that Speaker, the
biggest star of the lot, is easily
worth $25,«00, that Lewis ought
to bring about $15,000 in any
auction and Hooper about 1-10,
000.
Stahl's dope Is different. Tie
believes that bis outfield won't
give him any trouble for at least
ten more years. As for the cash
value of the players, he is really
afraid to commit himself. He
has his own private opinion, but
ing the wires, between here and
Seattle aflame with supplications
to get Hall on the phone.
Somehow Bertram has disap
peared. A few say he Jumpea
in the bay last night, though
others intimate they have infor
mation to the effeot that Bob
Brown has beat the Seattle man
ager to it and that Hall will soon
bloom forth in the style of over
alls made in Vancouver.
Hall was given the pink sflp
two weeks ago by Manager Wal

that opinion carries figures of
such startling proportions that
he doesn't care to let the public
in on his secret.
At any rate, they are three
wonderful players. All of them
fast on their feet, equipped with
superb arms. AH of them good
hitters. They have caused other
American league clubs a lot of
trouble this year, and if they get
into the world's series they are
sure to worry the Giants or Cubs
as well.
As for selling them, that is out
of the question. Of course Stahl
might be willing to talk trade,
provided that he secured in re
turn,say Ty Cobb, Joe Jackson
and Clyde Milan, with Walter
Johnson and Ed Walsh thrown in
for good measure.
Now you can figure Just how
much of a chance there is for a
swap.

TED SULLIVAN SUGGESTS
NEW BASEBALL RULE
If the baseball code was
passed up to Ted Sullivan for re
vision he would slip In an amead
ment which would meet with the
unanimous approval of the play
ers, anyhow, and which would
not be a bad thing for the game
after all. Ted's amendment
would unquestionably ameliorate
the severity of baseball in respect
to broken bones, wrenched ton;,
dons and lacerated muscles.
"I would have this amendment
put In the rules," said Sullivan.
"I would allow players to over
run second and third bags just as
they do first and home plate now.
This sliding into the bags feet
first, head first or any old way
to get there has put more good

men out of business than any
thing else. In fact, nearly all
the accidents are due to sliding
into the bags and if players were
allowed to overrun them like
they do first and the plate, it
would prevent a lot of broken
limbs. As long as a base runner
loaches either bag that ought to
i>e sufficient. When I saw Ned
Hanlon recently I suggested my
plan to him and he thought pret
ty well of it, although he was in
clined to argue that it might spoil
the beauty of the game. He
thought base sliding was one of*
the features of baseball, and if
players were allowed to overrun
the bags this feature would go
and baseball would suffer, but I
don't agree.
. Tacoma's two pitchers, "Butch"
Belford and Churchill, carried oft
the batting honors. Churchill
got one hit out of one time at nat,
giving him 1.000 per cent. Bel
ford got five hits out of six times
to the pan.
