This club ia the lirst American League machine in some year? to win a pennant by a decisive margin, Aa srTong as the Red Sox Were, they won by only three iranies in 1916 and by or.ly two gnmes a yenr ago. The White Sox have been right or ten gnme.4 out in front for the greater part of a moath.

Like Knuckle Delivery Enunciators May Bother Giants While Playing at White Sox Park By Louis Lee Arma While watchlag the Yankees pro tect their franchi.e in the American League the other day it occurred to' us there are still a few things left ! un.ai.l in the matter of this worbl series. The Yanks naturally Miggest- . ed shinc ball. and that brought to min.l Mr. Edward Cicotte, svho will or will not play an important part in thi- aeriee, an.l bil widely cclebrated methoil of tl.-livery. 1'eople have different opiniona of j the ahme ball. We are inclined to , agree with one of the brainiest pitch crs in the business, who inform* ui that the shine ball is no more than sn extra-knucklo ball which Bflilfl an.l ^oots on the same general phvsical principle aa the "spitter." The Yan- ' Lees to a man do not believe this. They say the shine ball eomes up to the plate like a little gentleman, only ba turn siiddenly two or three back flins. disappear mysteriously and con eladfl by plucking a white rabbit out of the batter's hip pocket. The Yanks hare not beaten Cicotte since the ; Prince of PiUaa flrorfl short panta. While sympathizmg, we do not agree with the Yank-t. Grip a base ball by the first two tingers and thumb, as all pitchers do, and it is obvious, the tingers being longcr than the thumb, that when the ball is thrown it liist ileparts from the thumb, aml then rolls from the tingers. It la thia roil off the fiagera that gives the spm to the nornial pitched ball. Wftlter Johnson and Grovcr Cleveland Alexan der are the two foromost axpOBCfltfl of this whirl ball pit4h.Bg, and their' itylfl of delivery cannot be UhflOfld to cicotte'* netbod. Origin of "Spit" Ball Some patnarch of the pitching boi figured out a long time ago lf he could eliminate that roll off the tinger tips and its consenuent spin he would have Bomethtng new. That wus in the Siar plug era of tho BBtioaal pa. time, ivhen to chew in public or private was a rr.ark of hardihood and not at all a social fox pasa. It was bc;,rcely a coincidencc that jooner or later the ball would be visited arith a StBI plvg .hower. Out of such humble circum Btaaee the "spit" ball grew. i rhfl .pi.-ball ran true to the simpft law of Bhyaiea. The two fingers, 0' the ball whern the two f.ngers c'.utched, were moistened, keeping the thun b >Jry and BBBitary, and, in con tequence.'when the ball left th?; thumb it llippod an.l .liil not spin from thfl nagere. ThU gare It tha deail-bail ac tioB arhich is accomplUhed by expert biHiardiatl it ia astoni.hing how much billiarda and pitching have in common. Lelicved of its customary spin, the ball approached the plata barely revolvng or dead, and tho ..tmo-ph<-nc fnc'.ion dld the rest. It eaaaea thfl iphcroid ta dive and shoo* at . Mraordinary angles, and, 10 far ai the batter was eoneerned, tore new ' gaaa [a the Eng'ish language. Thfl knuckle ball i. the aristocratlc brother to the "spitter." His laundry il alwsys clean an.l dry. and sartorl fllly bl might have been turned out hy BrOOka Urothers, but in hU acro- j biitic instinct he is no less than a bro'her to his slattern companion If one crook- the tirst two f.ngers af hia baad an i itieki his thumb .traight rored by ?he by-laa i of tha v. i ? ra' I'nion, Hroadway I'istrict 4-11-11, one will perceive that th* tip of the thumb and the knuckles of the fingers are about eOjually distant from the palm of the hand. A ball gripped and thrown in this manner will deparf frorn thumb and fingers at the same time, which is precisely the prineiple upon which the "apitter" is predicated. It givea the same "dead," non-revolv ing action and causes the pill to shoot and dlve in eccentrlc and puzzlinK manner. Klll.ient Knuckle Ball Kddie Cicotte'g ahine ball is the knuckle ball carried out to efflciencv plus. It io naught more. Eddle kai beafl moakayiag with this delivery for the last live years, and it is reason able tO as.sume that his knucklea by tkil time are highly educated and that their techniijue is above the k.-n of tba ordiaary knuckle. Reaec his de livery or knuckb-s has been bitterly I . .1 on all sidei because perfec tion in many niatters lometimea sniat ter-i of magic. Cicotte has b.en ac euaed of using evrrythin;: from Eng llah breukfast tea to crud.' petroleim on th.- ball. Yet those balU whieh umpirai have run to -arth an.l eapt ure.l have aheWB BOthing. They have been test.d by the Xational Commis sion. Whoae taa^e in liquida is aecept ed to be that of a conneiaseur, and tho Natleaal Commish couldn't ever. disrover n trnce of th.' h'trm'ess oIi? ? ??. The akiaa hall is an extra knuckle ball, and that is all there is to it. Tho fame of knuckles has not heretofore pread beydnd piga' and braaa, and if Mr. ClCOtta has disccvere.) a new use "or a g'-nerally uncdrbgated porCon <.f tke nimtomy it arill not be the poliey of this writer to wltkhold full nnd am ple credit. While we are about it, the C.ian'.s, belag new to Comiskey park, Chicaco, shoui.l be waraed or' th" eauaciator ayatam that is in vogue in the Wind. City park.

It is th? euatota of Mr. Comiakey'a enuneiators to anr.ounce in a high pitched key the batteriea for the day. and. ns the game proirresses, any change in tlie line-up or the induction of a pir.cTi hitter is duly register.'d over the onanclator.

Yesterday they kicked off another to the Yankees 1 to 2 which makes three in n row they should have lost, barring the stranglel hold, the half-nelson and other meth od.i of persuasion they use on old man Luck. It is all very flrell for the bascball crltic to look as wi M. as a gentleinan with a Van Dyke board and tell you the Sox are kidding. He can propound the hypothesis that Mr. Ilowland haa warne.l the Sox to be careful of their shins. ankles and shoulder blades, but that doesn't lessen the fact that tho Sox have played sucker ball the last several days. Ye.terday they a.lde.l a few n-w tricks to their, aet. Wh:le it was formally announced that Joe Jackson was playing right field it became evi dent before the game had progre?sed far that this wa? an error. It seemed> that the advertising sign on tne .outh wing of the grandstand wa. actually playing right hftld, while Joe was im personating one of the painted figure-, j on the fence. In the opposit.) garden I Shano Collins was hanging up a new ' cushion carrom record uga;nst thi la.fl field fence, and flrBBB the last out waa registered he had made something like : an unfinished run of six. Gilhooley Reaches Third In ad'Jition to thex air-cooled de ! fence cut in the suburas, Catcher Lynn ! without warning aaiaod upon the sev ? aoth inning to make further unhappy I the Chicago war eorraapoodeata, who j are carrying their ho.',ors and any i thing fllfla they m:ght have abOBtthoBI ! with judicial ca!m and d:gnity. ' In tha mning Praakia Gilhooley had reached tl.ir.i !ki>.. while Joe Jackaon 1 and the Bdrertiaiag aiga in right leld , were Jebnting arhich ihould Praahie'l pop rly. At ftrst it looked a.4 though Joe arai goiag ta gat it, bal the advertising siga won aga.r.. aad Frankic hiked aroun.l to third baaa i while Joe and the fence were decid : ing which should pick up the ball. ln view of the. ImpcBdiBflj football laaaon, it aaoaaad as though Joe ought to have ? fallcn on it, or flomething. Faber. who was pitching at that | time, pushed one through t'.ai waa a j trifle high. and Lynn lat it roil off his J mitt. Quick as the ?r?ll known flash j little Frankie Gilhooley darted for 1 the plate. Lynn recovered th<! ball ' and did some dartiag himself. Ba ' .eemed to appreciate the fact that as B darter he could not cope with Mister Gilhooley or the Imtniaeat lita* ation, and consequer.'.iy he dired for* ward on what might be termed his Ka.<t Lynn and lay, with the ball in his hand, completcly covering tho pft'e. There was but one thing for little Miater Gilhooley to do, and he did it i He cautiously approached tho plate and peered down at the hostile Mr. Lynn, who was making thr.atening rlourishcs with tho ball. Between flourishes t.ve and six little Miater '. Gilhooley extended hts left foot. with dti'w it neatly and touched the plate arith h:s right toe, while Catcher Lynn continued to lie m the dirt and lig* nal some one in the laft lield bleichers with the ball. For baaoball of sup posed championship calibre it was - ar aaiflfal. Just Ordlnary I'itching Williams and Faher, who constitute ' one-half of ClarenCfl Bowlaad'fl four," pftehed far tha Box, aad there was nothing remarkabli' nbout it.
