COCASH IS MAKING
GOOD WITH THE
DETROIT OUTFIELDER 19 THE
SURPRISE OF THE GIANT TRAIN
ING CAMP, ACCORDING TO EX
PERT SID MERCER.
By SID MERCER.
MARI.IN SPRINGS. March s—The
case of Johnnie Corush, the speedy lit
tle outfielder from Detroit, is a prac
tical demonstration of the fact thut
a minor league reputation is no guar
antee of Hteady employment In fast
company, and that, vice versa, a lack
of reputation in thVininors Is no bar
to development in avnrtjor league. Co
i ash is one of the players drafted by
the New York club last fall. Te coat
the club S7OO. As an outfielder with
.he Springfield. 111., club Cocash at
l rafted but little attention from major
league, scouts—so little that nobody
tried to buy his release. He la not a
<rent find, according to the Throe-Eye
league records, and Mctiraw might
never have picked him up Lad he not
liked the young man's actios in an
exhibition game which the Giants play
c*d at Springfield last summer.
But Cocash is making good down
here. He is relying on ability, and
not a minor league recommendation.
McGruwisa shrewd Judge of players,
lid there is no doubt that he has a
nigh opinion of the Detroit boy. Minor
league records do not go far with the
boss of the Giants. If he gets an ex
pensive player and discovers that he
has plucked a lemon he gets rid of
him. Spike Shannon cost the club a
big sum, but as soon as he deteriorat
ed his reputation did not hold a Job
Cocash looks very promising, and he
Is strictly in the scramble for a chance
to remain with the team as an extra
outfielder. What McGraw likes about
t’oeash Is his nimbleness and hia abil
ity to profit by Instruction. The little
fellow can field and run bases like a
deer, and remembers what he Is told
He may be one of those spring hitters,
hut if he keeps up his present clip he
will make the team. In the practice
game the Detroit lad is meeting the
ball squarely. In the games .of Mon
day and yesterday he made nine suc
cessive hits in as many times at bat.
and that’s going some. The cases oj
t'oeash and Herzog are somewhat sim
ilar Herzog was an unknown quanti
fy last spring H« showed unusual
ability, and when his chance came he
was not found wanting. Yet he came
to the Giants with no great minor

announced the manager of the De
troit club’s second team which will
b« known this year ns the Kittens.
- ♦ -
The biggest crowd of the week attend
ed the. Motor Moat show last evening
Tonight will be featured by the pre*-
encs of the Edgemer* and flolvay
clubs In a body.
cALL THAT’S DOING TODAY IN THE REALM OF SPORT.
HUGHIE JENNINGS wants It distinctly understood that, whatever that
veteran sage Jim McGuire may say about It. the practice of the I>*
trolt Base bull club at Sun Antonio this spring will be as open as t fie aky
and as frss as ths air. Tha gates of the park down In Texas wtll not bo
. closed villa tha Tigers ara within. Anyona who
wants to see a real, champion, big-league bait
IKCHKT PRAC'TIt'IBT team at Its work can enter and be wslcoiua.
" OT T l^ I ,™“ This d« t ' l a r| U ,on by tha boss little manager was
evoked on Information that the Cleveland Naps
+ + had barred from their park all the Mobile popu
lace, alleging that none of the secrets which McGuire was about to Impart,
were going to be flashed to ths othsr American league tumps, if otdlnaiy
precautions could prevent.
. ' Bosh!" says Height*.
"The more people we can persuade, lure, coax and lug by main force
Into the park at San Anton* the better I'll like It. 1 like to have a big crowd
out to watch practice. The presence of the people puts enthusiasm Into
the players and has a very marked effect In making the practice a dashing
success. 1 can rsinembsr my own expel lence as a player and know thut it
was so then. The brai/d of enthusiasm the Tigers turn off when the bleach
ers are well occupied, is always reminiscent of the old Baltimore Orioles In
the same conditions.
"And I'll defy the greatest tactician In the world to drop in at one of
our practices this spring, and pick out our signs.
"In the first piace, we don't take signal practice very often—none at alt
in tiie first week, probably.
"In the second place, the signs of a team aie so well veiled that very
often the players at one end of the halting order don't know the signs of
thos« at the other. If this Is the case, how is some hostile expert going to
diop In and cop the signals out?
"And. even were some spy to get a signal for one of our plays, the
chances are It would never do him any good. Each man has his own sign
for communicating with his mates ami no two aio ever alike Quite often
a man employs the same method of signaling for years without Its ever be
ing detected. That was the cas« gt Baltimore, and 1 could sit right down
now and tell the signs that were used by the combination with which I usul
to bat and run. Keeler and 1 came together in the hatting order for seven
consecutive years. Any time I saw Willie, standing out on first base, hit. fi
away at his left stocking as If It needed pulling up. you can bet your life
I'd hit at the next ball, for I knew he was going to start. When 1 wanted
to hit and wanted to give Keeler the wireless to that effect. I'd lav one
thumb lengthwise along my hat, as I faced the pitcher. Jn all those seven
years Keeler never missed that sign once, lie was away before the !>hII tell
the* pitcher's hand, and, If 1 was lucky enough to connect, he didn't stop at
second base, either
• i don't think there was ever a team that reduced the hit and run to the
science we did at Baltimore 1 remember one afternoon when, playing
against Brooklyn, we worked It for seven consecutive runs, the batsman each
tint.- out -guessing the Brooklyn Infleider who went over to cover second, and
tapping the hall through his position. I think that was a worlds record.
The Irony of fate bobs up again In the case of Detroit which tried hard
to get the National Bowling congress a year ago hut failed, only to have the
National Bowling Congress heg for the chance tills year, when the event isn t
wanted at all.
The ins ami outs of the game are well illustrated hv Harry Howell
who says of Jimmie Williams that the Infleider Is al on figuring
out inside plays.
Cleveland Is getting chesty over the fact that the Sitton brothers, one
of whom has signed with the Naps, pitched two no-hit games within a week
last ysar. Tut! Ralph Works, of the Tigers, did that all by himself lust
year and against different cluhs. too.
Here's a leaf from Sam Crawfbrd's store of baseball wisdom: No
healthy athlete Is going to reduce ills weight to any extent, without diet
ing. Work alone won't do it."
“Long-Form Contract With
Yost” is Huston's Motto
Roaecoe B. Huston, the Detroit attorney are mak
ing a strenuous campaign on his behalf for thd placing
him in the position of Graduate Director ,of AlhlW-jJjH the l nlver
slty of Michigan, vice Charles Baird, about to r*K Jm one or the
closest friends of Coach F. H. Yost, of the Wolverme football team
and flatly states that, if chosen for the position by the regents his
first and most strenuous endeavor will be to secure for the Athletic
association a long-term renewal of the contract with Mr. Yost.
Mr. Huston is steadfast In the belief that lack of material, not
any decadence In the coaching, is to. blame for Michigan s recent dis
astrous football campaigns.
“Yost is by all odds the greatest football strategist the world has
ever seen,” said Huston, in discussing the matter. "To the close stu
dent of football he lias been greater In recent years, though in de
feat, than he was In by-gone days In victory. He has done more with
his material, good or bad. than anyone else could possibly have hoped
