Yard 21 RUTH AND KELLY DISTINCTLY - OPPOSITE TYPES OF HITTERS Rutk The season's home-run monarchs to date Babe Ruth of the Yankees and George Kelly of the Giants are dis tinctly opposite types of hitters. All they have in common is the ability to land with extraordinary p"bwer, the ability to drag a bat up to the plate and a great yearning to slam the ball to realms beyond. Both get the leverage of height and a ' long reach, but in different ways. Ruth Is a left-handed, slugger ; Kelly hits from the other side of the platter. Kelly inclines more to left-fiein hit ting and Ruth to right-field hitting. Kelly is a freer hitter than Ruth, in the sense that he will hit to all fields much oftener than Ruth. He makes some home runs to right, but it Is seldom, indeed, that Ruth hits to left for a homer or otherwise. He jolts 'em to center-right often, how ever. Ruth is a freer hitter than Kelly, in the sense that he will hit all kinds, high, low, slow, fast curves oftener than Kelly. Kelly Is a wrist hitter, Ruth a long, r i RIGLER SAYS EMSLIE J ! IS RULE BOOK WIZARD i ' Bob Emslle, dean of the Na- $ 0 tional league umpires, knows the ' J rulebook better than the fellows $ 4 who made it, according to Cy ' Rlgler. He says: t "Bob knows as much about J the rules as all the rest of the 0 National league umpires put to- , gether. It is a mystery to me that he wasn't consulted last ; t winter, when they were making changes. After the commission $ 0 had made the changes, Heydler J asked Emslie for his opinion. f Bob told him that two of the J ' new rules were 'bad the dead- i 0 ball rule and the one which re- J J quires the umpire to judge whether a home run is fair or. 0 foul from where it passes out ' of sight. These are the only t 0 two rules that have been done ' away with, so far." TY COBB'S WINNING METHODS Encourages Wavering Pitchers With Cheerful Words and Consults Players Frequently. Ty Cobb is making good. as manager for Detroit. When a pitcher wavers, Cobb comes in from center field with cheerful words, calculated to allay nervousness. He holds frequent con sultations with his men on the field V. Ty Cobb. j and Is constantly on the coaching lines. Through it all he has so far preserved a managerial dignity and calmness of demeanor that augurs well for success. And he is still a wonderful batsman, fielder and base runner. 'its k I r-rv Kelly" powerful swinger with the arms and applied with such Intuitive use of the principles of applying power that he gets the benefit of every ounce of his weight more than any slugger the game has known he does this. Kelly leans well forward and Ruth does noti and Kelly's feet are further apart. He has an awkward knee ac tion, but has on advantage over Ruth in that he can wait until the ball is nearer before starting his swing. He doesn't bring the bat forward from as far back, but whips In savagely with the .wrist, and thereby, plus excellent timing, gets enormous power. Ruth's Position Easier. Ruth's feet are closer together than Kelly's, much closer, with the left foot In advance of the right. His position at the bat is the easier of the two. He holds the bat well, his arms back, with the bat vertical. Kelly has the bat pointing out backward, bat and arms lower. With his wider stance, he doesn't get as long a step forward when about to swing. MIMIKOTES The New Tork Yankees have sent Pitcher Jess Doyle to Joplin. Reb Russell is hitting hard for the Millers these days as an outfielder. According to reports the Yankees have their eyes on Knight, Brown col lege pitcher.

The Chicago White Sox are said to be trying to sign the left-hander named Williams who pitches for a team at Newcastle, Pa.

Now Catcher Dick is out for an Indefinite period with a bone broken In the right wrist. " The American league has decided to erect a memorial to Umpire Silk O'Loughlin, but the site and nature of It have not yet been settled upon. - Max Carey, who was trained to pound the pulpit in his early boyhood days, can still preach a sermon on the ball field when the umpire crosses him.

RIGGS STEPHENSON ATTRACTS ATTENTION His Play Around Keystone Sack Equals That of Veteran. Injury to Bill Wamsganss, Unassisted Triple-Play Hero of World's Se ries, Gives Youth Chance to Show Himself. From the college campus direct to the major leagues without previously having seen a professional baseball diamond is the unique record of J. Riggs Stephenson, second baseman with the world's champion Cleveland Americans. Stephenson probably is attracting as Much attention as any player in the big leagues. His play around the keystone sack equals that of a vet eran. When Bill Wamsganss, unassisted triple-play hero of the world's series last October, i sustained a fractured arm during the trip north from the spring training camp at Dallas, Mana ger Tris Speaker filled the gap with Harry -Lunte, utility infielder. A few days later Lunte wrenched his ankle and Speaker found himself without a second baseman. Stephenson, who signed with the Indians last spring, was attending the University of Alabama. He was to have joined the team when he finished J. Riggs Stephenson. his studies in June. Speaker ex plained the circumstances to the uni versity officials and his request that Stephenson be excused until May was granted. A week before his leave of absence from college expired . Stephenson learned that neither Wamsganss nor Lunte would be ready to play by May 1, and he notified Manager Speaker that he had decided to remain with tne Indians all season. He will re turn in the fall to complete his course In engineering and receive his degree in February. Stephenson is an all-around athlete, making the college baseball, football, track and basketball teams and being picked on All-Southern football, base ball and track teams. The Alabaman received a tryout with the Indians at Dallas for two weeks. This was the first profession al diamond he had ever seen. He re ported to Cleveland April 12, the day before the American league season opened. Up to this year Stephenson played shortstop on the University of Ala bama team. Sewell was the second baseman, but changed to shortstop when he joined the New Orleans Southern association team. At Speak er's suggestion Stephenson switched to second base.

Acceptance of all but seven of the American, track and field records sub mitted as world's records - has been decided on by the International Am ateur Athletic federation. FROM OBSCURITY TO FAME IN TWO MINUTES. RIDER'S FEAT iimi Jl &g Behave Yourself With Jockey Thompson Up. - Jockey C Thompson, who rode Behave Yourself to victory in the Ken tucky Derby, jumped from obscurity to fame In the brief space of two minutes four and one-fifth seconds. Until the Lexington meeting opened Thompson was unknown in the East, he having confined his riding operations to the Far West, chiefly TIa Juana. He met with considerable success in that sec tion, but his achievements there gave him little prestige, as he was pitted against very ordinary riders. When he was recommended to E. R. Bradley the latter purchased his con tract, and results show that he has no cause to regret It. nis efforts on Be nave Yourself were gilt-edged, and the manner In which he drove down to snatch the highest honor on the American turf from Jockey Lawrence Lyke was a revelation to the turfites. Last year Thompson accepted 330 mounts and won seventy-two races. BASEBALL The Pirates were the first National league club to get 300 hits this sea son. It's easy to be a successful pitcher If you go about it right, says Pol Per ritt The Yanks and Pirates have better luck as tourists than as home-town folks.

Phil Todt, after recovering from a flock of boils. Is appearing in the Tulsa line-up again. The "crime wave" continues almost without Interruption wherever the Pittsburgh Pirates go. One bright and shining light on the Fort Worth pitching staff this season is Augustus (Lefty) Johns. Charley Grimm, star first baseman of the Pittsburgh club, is leading the National league In three-base hits. v England may have a little the advan tage in golf, but a great baseball com petition would tell a different story. Jack Wilkinson, veteran player, man ager and umpire, has been added to the umpire staff of the Western asso ciation. m w The Tigers and the Indians were the first teams to score 200 runs this season. . Both clubs reached this mark on May 20. Sacramento has been giving a trial to a young pitcher hailing from Stock ton named Shea, who wears glasses when he pitches. About all the Giants need to keep Pittsburgh from winning the National league pennant is pitching. That usu ally holds true in baseball. The Joplin club has turned Pitcher Otis Lambeth back to the Kansas City club. The once clever underhander seems to have lost his arm. The only difference between Ameri can and National league balls is that one is stitched with red and black thread, the other with red and blue. ' Cliff Rest, pitcher sent to Plttsfield by the Boston Red Sox, Is living up to liis name, for he is about the best bet on the Plttsfield staff. He can hit too. George Murray, college pitcher, sup posed to join the New York Yankees when his school closed, Is pitching for an independent team in North Caro lina. " Frank Shellenback and Paul FIttery are pitching such high-class ball that the critics are predicting they will ad vance to the big show again after this season.

Neither do they know how he acquired it, although many of them may guess right. It all happened back In Inde pendence, Kan., when Owens was umpiring In the old West ern association. "Brick" has umpired since he was about able to toddle, and he made his de cisions as fearlessly against his home town team as he makes decisions now. In one of those tough decis ions Independence got the worst end of the deal and an angered fan hurled a piece of red mas onry, which struck Owens in the head. Owens, unfazed. went oil who hurled the brick also hurled at him a cognomen which has had its lasting im print on the world of baseball.
