ABE RUTH SMASHES BALL FOR RECORD ' . - :1 aiAees Great Slugger jFor Second Day Running Knocks Out Two Home Runs t. Balie's Remarkable Slugging Biggest Factor in Again Humili , ating the Once Nonpareil of Baseball, Ty Cobb and His Tygers. Fill lan filiiimnn -'Weorirp. Hrrmnn Tltitli 1in. nnt.hlnir to do now but break, his own budinc records. Ha ha broken nil others, including- Ills own. THutJ Babe , Blurted In yesterday by mslrin thelon(;-dlstanco home run matku-ho hiulvaet the day before by cloatliitf the tltlrd ball George Datum pltahed him In .the third Inning over theijht centra Held bleachers fence fornoi dlstanco of 450 feet, a truly trcmendouM w.iOup and said to be the longest hit eves uiadu In major league Ttrcro la no mistake about trtio lljf urosr'Hcnry FabVm, groundktepcr of thol?olo Grounds, jind 1 measured It after-' the tramo, accompanied by another reporter. Tle blow, which was the sncund homo run the Habe had made otf DauA during the game', cleared tho fence about twenty fuet to the lutt of his hit of Monday, -which went ilirectly over the Tanglefoot Hlgn through the bleachers' exit ut that point. nenry Fabian's tape iiieaanro shows It Is 432 feet 3 Inches from home plae to the point where Monday's hit cleaved. The ball then loll to tho trottlid at a distance ten feet rfroni tho tenv line a total of 442 feet 3 Inches, over all. yesterday's blow, however,, hud to travel 433 fret before It cleared tho fervce,. becausu thu Inclosuro curves ouUut'rdly and tho auglu of tile arc biKeutd by the ball Is U feci 'J Indies further from homo plute. Muo.. the ball remained In tho air it reached the fourth row of leariher seats, whence It fell like .1 plummet to the clndors underneath. cxaotly fifteen feet from thu fence linn, a- total of 450 feet from the borne pl.ittiM.iid nearly eight feut longer than his '.longest" hit of Monday. I'olo Grounds ami no other majir, Jeague Held havo a hit to equal It iu'Uingth. Geoi-go Kelly's clout over the.le.rt Held bleachers wall, lluua Wagner's even longer mash about fifteen feet to tho right of 'hat and McujqJ's hit Into the left centre iloid bleachers are conceded by those who saw these hits made, although they wcr'Sever measured, to havo been shoMer. Meusel's was perhaps the; lonuvKt of the three1, approaching Babe's, hit of Monday for thu record bet Ay him then. However, long afl the Babe's hit was. nncflf probably will be a mark for n miters. Including the Babe hlm- !;hcU, to shoot at for a long ttmo, It -Is inot, according to Henry Kublaii, tno jongCBt bit evor made. Henry has statistics In h's memory from which ho exhumed yaslerday the- records of a hit made by one Ed Cartwrlght In tho year 1488 at Naw Orleans. Cartwrlght, said Henry, hit .for EuO feet off Pitcher ueorgo Wash ingtun Bradley of Savannah, whose ,namo ls sufllcleut to make tho story true. But, In achlltlon to the length of thM blow, tho day was otherwise full on glory for George Herman. It was, ,uUia3 been said, the second homemin ho .had got during tho game. It was thin fourth ho had got In two days and tho day's clouting made the fifth day in succession that he bad knocked out homers. ' Ho started last Fri day against Bagioy of Cleveland. Ho !hlti another Saturday off Mlddleton of tho Tigers, another Sunday off Suth erland and then two Monday off Ehvnke and two yesterday off Dalies dewen altogether In live days, to Hay -.nothing of hitting four in succes sion. A.1bV It was bis twenty-third four base U'ow of the season, and tho 126th of his .major league career, exceeding tho liftVlme big league record of Cac tus CrtAyath by five. And tho Babe still a comparative youngster! Incidentally, the Yankees made it, by the score- of 9 to 6, a clean sweep, four in a ran', off Ty Cobb's Tigers. Ty, who had been In somewhat of an eclipse, slammed a homer across In the sixth 'Oft Rip Collins, but there was no one on a base, while Roger Pocklupaugh was on each tltno the Babe hit his. How Babe Ruth Surpassed Own World's Home Run Record Here After slamming his two homers In tho llrst two times at bat, the Babe In tho fifth swung mightily but glanc Ingly, and grounded weokly to Dauss, making an easy out at first. Frank Baker also Ml a home run In the seventh with both Ruth and I'ipp on bases.

DIAGRAM SHOWS DISTANCE OF BABE RUTH'S RECORD HOME RUN HITS ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY. I Baker was saved an error in the i sixth by a magnificent throw by Blpp. Frank had overthrown first In his , haste to throw out HAlmann, but I'ipp I retrieved the ball from right field and I threw out Hollmann to Ward at I second. Aaron started oik: of tho snappiest, double plays of many a day In the sec ond by scooping 1 1 fuu'a ho groundor find beating Hellmann to second In time to throw out the Tiger first baseman at first. He-was spiked dur ing play but continued In tho game. Mission Bells Is Year's Best Filly THE Belmont meeting has, among other things .developed tho fact i that John II. Rossctcr of Call- I fornla and John 13. Madden of Ken tucky, both of them breedvrs, are en gaging In their legal battle for the possession of a mighty virile sire In Friar Hock, the son of Hock Sand. Several of Friar Rock's get have per- 1 formed Impressively on Metropolitan j tracks lately, but none more convinc ingly IUUI1 .tllHSlUll Di-un, IK UtlUblHUI of Sanctunry, who galloped homo In yesterday's final with nn advantage of five lengths, meanwhile proving herself one of the best fillies shown this year. Her performance was gen erally regarded as better than that of the Whitney Ally, Calamity Jane, at Jamaica, who had been counted on to take the measure of My Reverie, the Southern queen, and so decide tho filly championship of the spring sea son. Mission Bells was away none too well In yesterday's race, but quickly sprinted into tho lead, which sho could havo Increased by several mora I lengths, according to expert eyowlt ' no.sses, and she was meeting some of 1 the best of her sex nnd nge, some who , uro counted upon to accomplish great l things before the season Is over with. I Behind Mtf.slon Bells 'it th l..'sh i were two other dnughters of Friar I; In Flying Jib and Confusion, and both have shown efforts above too hi Unary. ' Flying Jib, racing as tho Rosseter second string yesterday, was bothered badly soon after the start, forced to a ' rearward position, nnd could not well find her way through the weaving 1 mass In front, while Confusion was weakly ridden by tho veteran, Kddlo ' Martin, whose efforts to drive her In I the llnal test were woefully Inconi- potent, bo that sho was an eventual trailer.
