BROWNS GOT MIXED UP
RECORD FOR 8HORTEST PROFES
SIONAL BASEBALL CAREER.
Meat Expert From Stockyards Is Mis
taken for Young Player From De
catur Who Had Been Picked
Out by Scout Sullivan.
J. A. Blown, .Jr., a Union Stockyards
meat expert, holds the world's record
with the shortest professional baso
ball career of any player who has yet
broken Into tho major leagues, writes
I. 12. Sanborn In Chicago Tribune. It
lasted less than two minutes and ho
did not know he was going to break
in two minutes before It happened.
Previous to that Brown, Jr., was an
amateur of considerable renown In
the Armour plant, where he is em
ployed. Wishing to Inhale n little pro
fessional atmosphere from the Inside,
he obtained n loiter of Introduction to
President Comlskey from n mutual
friend and set out to spend his vaca
tion practicing with tho White Sox.
Kncountcring Acting Secretary
Grnblncr nt tho Sox offices, our hero
nsked for Comlskey, saying: "My
name's Brown," and offering the let
ter of Introduction. Without glancing
at the document, Grnblncr extended
his hand and was so glad to see Brown
that he took htm right out and intro
duced him to the Sox pilot.
"So you're Brown, eh?" was Calla
han's greeting. "Welcome to our
midst. Here, Buck, give Brown a
home uniform right away."
Although surprised at this warm
welcome, Brown thought Borne of his
stockyards admirers might have been
swelling him up to the Sox manager,
and obeyed the Injunction to get
dressed and get busy with alacrity.
He was taken In tow by Billy Sullivan
and started passing the ball with him.
"Wing a bit sort?" nsked Sullivan
after a while.
"I haven't been playing much late
ly," admitted Brown.
"You don't look as heavy as you
were," said Sullivan, while Brown's
chest expanded at the idea the Sox
veteran knew him so well.
This hnpened beforo a recent
game with Washington and Broun en
joyed his (Irst experience on the
bench In tho uniform of a major
league team enjoyed It until tho
homo half of the eighth Inning.
Ayrcs had the Sox beaten 5 to 0, and
It was Jasper's turn nt bat.
"Hit for Jasper," said Callahan, turn
ing to Brown, who gasped In amaze
ment, but thought It some new form
of the third degree, which he waB too
game to dodge. Out trotted tho meat
expert, resplendent in his clean white
suit, and struck out on thrco wild
pitches, even before the annunciator
could finish his spiel, "Brown now bat
ting for Jasper."
Wot a smile was cracked on the
bench when Brown returned and with
out a word he hustled to the club
house shed his uniform and jumped
to the Federal league where he has
since done his practicing with Johnny
Farrcll. But the joke wasn't on
Brown of 'tho stockyards.
In the stands and the press box
everywhere was heard "Brown? Who
After the game they asked Comls
key and ho turned them over to
Qrabiner, who Informed the scribes
that Brown's first name was Dclos
and that he was n swell young player
who had been going to school at De
catur, and was signed by Comlskey
last summer after Billy Sullivan had
looked him over in several games.
The way Brown had swung nt those
balls didn't rnlse the scribes' estima
tion of Sullivan as a scout, but they
didn't know, nor did any one else ex
cept J. A. Brown, Jr.
CRAWFORD A DEMON SLUGGER
Tiger's Outfielder Has Been Up Among
Hardest Hitters of American
League All Season.
Sam Crawford has been up around
the top of the batting column In the
American league nil season. A good
share of the time since tho season
started he has been at the head. Craw
ford has long been recognized as ono
of the hardest hitters In the game and
is almost as big a drawing card on tho
Detroit team as TyruB Cobb. Crawford
has done greater execution with the
stick so far this season than his rival
from Georgia. Sam came back from
his trip around the world in line condi
tion. He jumped right In banging the
ball as soon as ho reached these shores
and has kept it up ever since.
"Red Sox" Not Scrappy Enough.
Outside of Manager "BUI" Carrlgan
there isn't much fiery stuff in the Bos
ton Red Sox show. "Too peaceful to
be pennant getters," Is the verdict on
the wlnnerH of 1912.
Perdue to Cardinals,
Hub Perdue, the veteran Brave, has
been traded to St. Louis for Outfield

Dick Koblltset, New First Baseman
Several years ago ci'-lit mnungcrs In
the American Icngtie held thumbs
down on "Oavvy" Cravatn; tho out
llclder was passed along to tho Ameri
can association. The Phllllc.i picked
him up in tho hope he would continue
hitting In the National lenguo ns he
had dune In the American association.
Cravnlh met tho hopes and In tho sea
son of 101:: ho was a sensation.
Tho Boston Americans now have a
man who Imo been passed up by eight
National leumie managers. Boston Is
expecting this person to recover lost
brilliancy. If ho does Beaton will
have visions of another pennant, an
other world's ccrlcs; perhaps another
But Boston Isn't thinking that way.
Dick Hoblltzcl Is the name of tho
newcomer. HobllUcl, for years. haB
been n star in the National league.

tho fall of 1913 he was looked upon as
CHANCE WANTS HARD HITTER
Manager of New York Yankees Don't
Care for Fielder, But Is Looking
for a Pinch Hitter.
"A slugger a real man with a big
stick, that's all 1 need and that's what
I'm looking for, and you or anybody
else that will deliver such a person
either to mo personally or t. o. b. any
whoro, will receive a handsome and
costly present," said Frank Chance
the other day.
"It looks aB though thcro Is not a
real smart batsman looso anywhere,"
continued Clinnco. "My scouts havo
scoured the 'oods and tho bushes for
ono. but I can't locnto him. I wouldn't
enro If tho fellow nover had a glovo
on his hand, If ho never caught a ball
in his life, so long as he could step
up to tho plat,o and slnm out a single;
t'afs all I'd ask of him.
"Why, havo any of you fellows kept
count of the numbei of gnmes this
team has lost this oeason by one and
two-run mm elm? How many games
have we kept sewed up until one of
the closing innings, and then had tho
other club cond In a pinch hitter and
win the game for thorn?
"I think I'd almost do better by
taking lluiuoll out of tho rcgi'Ur line
up and sending him in In pinches to
bat out u fow victories. But, of
course, I have no ono to take Roy's
place In the field. But I'll land a
slugger one of these days. It may
cost a lot of money, but I'll get him,
Then watch how tho team will jump
In tho club standing after we havo an
even break to snatch u fow of these
close games out of tho fire."
Weakness with the bat has been
one big fault of the New York Ameri
rans this season. The Yankees dart
ed off with a rush and It was pre
dicted that Chance's team would be
ablo to hold the pace right through
tho seuson, but the team struck a bad
slump In Its stick work and took a big
tumble down the ladder. Roy Hart

This spring Hoblltzcl and Herzog

FOUNDER OF NEW YORK GIANTS

Fortune Made When Team Won Two
World's Championships Froir. St.
Louis Browns and Erooklyns
Loct In Fighting F.cvclt.
Once the richest and most powerful
magnate In the National league, John
B. Day, founder of the New York
baseball club, which has controlled the
Giants elnce 1SS"), now draws a small
salary fcr supervising the turnstiles
at tho polo grounds. Mr. Day's for
tune, made in 18SS and 1&9, when the
Glnnts won two world s championships
from the St. i.ouls Browns and the
Brooklyns, respectively, was swept
away in vainly fighting the 111 other
hood ic volt of 1S9J. He sacrificed oil
to remain loyal to the National league,
which without hln allcglnnco would
have been crushed In midseaFOii. In
fact, Mr. Day refused a half Inter
tst in tho Now York Brotherhood club,
together with a t2G,UUJ salary to servo
Tho sloiy of Mr. Day's ruin Is an
old oils, but his wondciful fitith In
tho ball players who thicw him down
never hns been told. At the sugges
tion of James Mutrlo Mr. Day organ
ized the old Metropolitans, who wan
the American association champion
ship In 1881. Ho leased the polo
grounds, then located at Fifth avenue
und One Hundred and Tenth street. As
tho National Icaguo was tho parent
body, Day and Mutrlo soon applied for
n franchlso to operate n New York
club. The team was nicknamed tho
GlantB In 1887, because the players In
cluded big men Buck Ewing, Roger
Connor, Tim Kecfc, Jim O'ltourkc,
Mike Slnttery and others.
During that season tho Now York
club made $100,000, while In 1888 Mr.
Day's profits were said to have been
double that amount. John M. Ward,
Gcorgo Gore, Mike Tlernnn, Mickey
Welsh, Ed Crane, Danny Richardson,
Bill Brown, Arthur Whitney, Gil Hat
field, Pat Murphy and Tltcumb were
added to tho club's roster from tlmo
to tlmo, so thnt when the pennant
was captured in 18S9 Mr. Day was
literally rolling In wealth. He nllowed
the players to pocket tho New York
club's entire shale of tho receipts.
It was during the following winter
that the Giants, with the exception of
Tlcrnan, Welsh and .Murphy, agreed to
desert Mr. Day. They had joined the
Brotherhood, which had formed a se
cret agreement with various financial
backers to organize a rival circuit
called the Plnycrs' leugue. When Mut
rlo Informed Mr. Day, there, that all
but three of tho Giants had decided
to Jump, the New York magnate re
plied: "I do not believe a word of it I I
havo treated my boys liberally and
fairly. You cannot mako me believe
that they are not real men."
It proved to be true, however, and
Mr. Day lost his fortuno.
PLAYERS IN ODD PARALLEL
Josh Devore and Beats Becker Wan

Josh Devoro is now with tho Bos

in Boston, Josh completes a strango
series of wandorlngB, which exactly

of coincidences, possibly never beforo
equaled. During tho last three sea
sons Becker, starting nt Boston, went
to New York, thenco to Cincinnati, and
filially to Philadelphia, whero ho is
now located. Devore, starting nt New
York, went to Cincinnati, thence to
Philadelphia, and finally to Boston,

Unique Pennant Situation.
Baseball haB been noted for many
odd situations which have cropped out
slnco the gamo waa made the national
pastime, but one of tho most unique
of them all is tho situation which ex
ists in tho Virginia league. In this
league two ponnnnt ruccH take place
in ono season, one ending August 1
and tho other starting July 2. In this
way, if a team wins a gumo In July,
that team getB credit tor two victories,
