RUTH AND KELLY DISTINCTLY
- OPPOSITE TYPES OF HITTERS
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,

TY COBB'S WINNING METHODS
Encourages Wavering Pitchers With
Cheerful Words and Consults
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
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
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.

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.
