BASEBALL IS SHORT OF LUSTY
YOUTH AND SUPERMAN THOUGHT
CAN'T MAKE MIDDLE-AGED STARS
Hans Wagner and Nap
tions Proving the Rule Managers Would
. Lose Jobs if Players Could Think
J A XAM,ED psychologist once Marveled that more baseball players dropped
f-out of tho big leagues while still Insldo of thirty-five than became great
flayers after this period In life, while some of the most famous men In the.
Jworld attained their greatness after reaching the fortieth milestone.
"It Is forco of habit," ho Fnld. "They grow up through the minor
leagues and Into the majors with this thought ever In their minds: When
il'm thirty-five I'll be a has-been. The result Is they become Just what they
fxpect to become has-beens."
While on the other hand, he mid. If they would Just think that they
jwould bo Just as good or better at thlrty-flvo or forty-fix e and think It hard
enough they would be.
jl This lino of reasoning falls to "follow through" In baclmll for tho
reason the physical requirements of tho sport make it essentially one for
Jthe- young and lusty and not for the middle-aged. Honus Wagner, Nap
VLaJole and a fqvv other notables arc exceptions proving rather than dls
proving the rule. The old vigor necessary to wallop the ball, round tho
-cushions and chase the fly bulls day In and day out Is nut thcic In tho aver
age man past thirty, much less thirty-five i r forty, and no sort of psychology
)n going to roduce the supeiman, regardless of what German philosophers
Jnay have to cay on the subject.

Jt, who said further: "This hlgh-brcw stJff Is all right In a way, but It won't
S'ork out In actual experience. You hav o to do the thlnKlns for tho averago
player, no matter how long ho has been ,n tho game."
.' tT SUPPOSE I ought not to complain, however," ho concluded.

Ilerzog Trades Fifiurc Up Nearly $100,000
IT MAI be bad form to mention money figures I discussing bateball
matters, but It Is d lllcult to avoid It sometimes, especially In any sort of n
'discussion or mention of trades, which aro the main article of diet of tho
winter league flock. And It is impossible to discuss tho geneial case of
tho "Where Do-We C.o-From Here" Herzog person without reference to
dollars, for the temperamental plajcr has figured in many and varied
tleals, his varied activities representing In coin equivalent almost tho sum
of $100,000. And this does not Include salaries paid him.
" "Tho Maryland grasshopper has been the cential llguro In live notable dia
mond transactions and has terved three separate terms with tho Giants and
two with Boston that Is, he goes back to the Ilravcs for a second nppearanco
following his acquisition from the Iiravci by McGraw In n trade for Ilrid
well and Goudy In 1911.
Ilerzog has been abused for lowdj tactics and temperamental weak
nesses, but the fact remains that he Is one of the most winning players tho
game has knov;n during his service of play. McGraw has been unable to
Win a pennant In Herzog's decade as a dl.imond rustler without tho services
of tho scrappy one. The Mao lander has been prominent In tho capture of
the four coming to Xcvv York during tho time mentioned. And as a money
getter Herzog has been most helpful. The fans like to f-ee n man of his ag
gressiveness and pep play tho game, even If they may at times disapprove
some features of his style of pastlmlng
Tho estimated figures and details of tho numerous llorniK deals aro as
J907 Draft price ? '50
1909 Boston gave Heals Becker, worth on market then about 8,000
1911 New York gave Brldvvell and Gowdy, worth then about 13,000
1913 Cincinnati gave Belcher, tho equivalent of 15,000
1916 New York gave Matthewson, ltoush, McKechnlo and cash, or
J.917 Boston gave Tyler, Doylo and Barnes, market value about.... 1S.000
REGARDLESS of his Inability to get along with his peppery
player, it is doubtful if McGraw would have let him get away
again at any price. Herzog himself forced tho deal by refusing
polntblanlc to play further under McGraw s management.
Minors Will Fight Hard to Stay in Game
RUMOHH regarding tho disappearance of the minor leagues tho coming
season on account of war conditions appear to be In tho same class as
one-time reports relative to tho alleged death of Maik Twain, tho samo
being branded by no less an nuthorlty than Mark himself as "grossly ex
aggerated." Word from various sections of the country is that many more
Bilnors than wero expected to do so will stago u hard fight against death
and will attempt to see through contracts, schedules and train connections
Regardless of war, wind, high water and cyclones.
It was published recently that not more than four leagues of tho lower
ranking could be expected to attempt to weather conditions tho coming
Mason. These wero named as the American Association, tho Pacific Coast
league, the Western and the Texas Leagues. Thrco others now nre re
sorted as making their usual arrangements to go forward, with the proba
bility of others at least being In on the kick-off.
i Plans to maintain play In the Eastern were decided upon a few davs
agO- A schedule of nlnetj -eight games, fourteen fewer games than last
Reason, was adopted, the jear to rim from May 22 to September 7. Every
club In the league was represented and the deliberations showed virtually
o opposition to plans for keeping the game going In New England. The
Southern League, It seems, haa not seriously considered giving up the base
ball ghost. The usual amount of pre-teason Interest Is to bo observed In
i"ho Dixie press and the teams will start with seemingly as good material
tn hand as during last season.
It Is proposed to reorganize the Central League to mako It more com
pact, but this detail already Is being considered and general plans aro
Tjelng made to start business. Moguls of this leaguo will meet with West
ern League heads In Chicago within u few days to discuss planr.
IT TAKES a good deal moio nerve for the little fellows In base
ball to attempt to fight tho situation confronting them than for
the baseball capitalists, and tho grit and nerve of tho minors are to
be greatly commended.
Indians Take Lead for Whiffing Championship
ST, LOUIS teams have not been able to claim many baseball champion
ships, but the Browns led for five straight seasons as whlffers, to be
replaced by Cleveland last ear. Indian players fanned fS0 times the last
Reason; this mark, however, being a good deal below that of any St. Louis
team of the previous five years.
Connie Mack's ball tossers acquired the reverse title In the American
"deaguo for two ears during the last half dozen, scoring the least number
of strlke-outs in 1912 and 1914. Detroit enjoyed the best record in this re
spect In 1913, whll6 the Bed Sox led the league the remaining three seasons.
Of the entire six seasons, the lowest mark was attained by tho Boston team,
vfhich struck out 474 times last year. One Bed Sox player did not fan once
during last season. This was Bader, who took part In fifteen games. His
nearest approach to a strike-out was when ho took on Chick Gandll for an
Informal boxing bout under the grand stand.
Armando Marsans, the Cuban player, carried off last season's strike-out
honors. He whiffed only nine times in 100 contests. Trls Speaker retired
via the ozone route fourteen times In 142 games. Oscar Vitt did about as
well, being turned back to the bench fourteen times in 142 games. Other
teata leaders In this respect were Eddie Collins, Stuffy Mclnnts, George
Slsler, Eddie Foster and Dick Hoblltzell.
Duffy Lewis, although a .300 hitter, led his team Iri the number of times
a. tatter was fanned. Among league regulars, Bobby. Both, of the Indians,
Jfd all comers in this respect with a high mark of seventy-three misses.
Xher club dubs In this respect were Swede Itlsberg, Harry Hellman, Boy
Orovcr, Bill Jacobson, Walter I'ipp and Mike Menoskey,
ONLY one player in the American League struck out more times
than the number of games played. Naturally this was a
pitcher, Dave Davenport, the Brown twlrler, succumbed forty-eight
times In forty-seven games,

right "dope" last night ln Its Ameri

hood of Beth Israel live at Traymore
Hall, when, with a minute to go, they
started to pass tho ball to ono another
In an attempt to '.'freeze" the ball.
This w-as the logical thing to do under
tho circumstances. It would keep the
Beth Israel five from getting tho ball,
thus preventing them from scoring
few necessary polntB. But, as Is often
the case In theso wartimes, tne Dest
of plans go wrong
The Beth Israel fans were getting
ready to leave tho hall when Swartz, the
B. B. I forward, pounced on the man
with the ball and after a Bhort scrim
mage emerged with the ball In his pos
session. After dribbling a few yards he
shot for the basket. Ills aim was true
and Beth Israel was only one point be
hind, with twenty seconds to go,
Jay Smith got the advantage of the
tap-off, with Jocko Lawrence and Doo
Newman secured possession of the ball
near the center of the floor Quickly
taking a look at the basket he sent
the ball on Its way. It was a perfect shot
and the ball dropped through) the net,

Doo Newman got the ball after the
tip-oft and kept It for the remaining

Its first win In Its last four games. This
