New York. Oct. 7. The official con
clusion of the major league schedule (
yesterday clears the decks for the
world's , championship combat. The
pennant winning clubs, the New York
Nationals and the Boston Americans,
cleaned their slate and have today to
rest up for the first of the big games
in New York tomorrow. i
The prediction made before every
world series that the crucial games will
be pitchers' battles usually proves, cor
rect. It was so last year with the ex
ception of one game and promises to
be so this year.
A championship struggle was never
approached with keener interest iu the
reliance placed upon the pitchers than
is the case this year. In Boston yes
terday they celebrated the 23rd anni
versary of the birth of Joseph Wood, a
date which has generally passed un
noticed in previous years, but on this
occasion it marks the official conclu-
i sion of a league championship rao.'
which for a great part is due to young
Wood's phenomenal pitching speed. A
fortnight ago he conpleted a run of 13
straight victories for the Boston club,
thereby equaling the American league
record set this season by Walter John
son of Washington.
The blinding speed with which Wood
winds up was one day described as
"smokey" by a Boston enthusiast and
.320 ; 't seemed so apt that the word became
j his nickname. Although one of the
younger members of the team he has
been with Boston since 19HS. He came
from Hutchinson, Kan., in 9'i7, which
was his first year in professional base
ball. He had had a record of a no-hit
game there and soon after going to
Boston his success as a big league
pitcher was assured, although Ray Col
lins was the Boston star at that time.
It was really not until this year that
Wood came into his own as the idol
of the Boston fan.
Notwithstanding that In Rube Mar
quard New York boasts a pitcher who
equalled the world's record by pitching
19 conseci live victories in the early
half of the past season, the local fol-
i lowers appear to have side tracked
both him and Mathewson. while ac
claiming young Jeff Tesroau as the
hero of the hour. Matched against the
