Despite the fact that the Boston
team had been badly crippled by tlje
American league raids, Pat started
hi* big league career with some of
the greatest players of all time. Billy
Hamilton, great batsman and holder I
of the National League base running
record with 115 steals, played center
field and led off for the Bean teapi.
Fred Tennay, baseball's greatest first
baseman of that day, followed Billy
in the line-up.
Bobble Lowe waa at second baae
and the great Herman Long, one of
tho game's premier shortstops, cov
ered that position. Lew holds the
individual slugging record for one

Ed Delehanty. All three have hit
four homers and a single In one
Other celebrities on the Boston line
op were Gene DeMontrevllie, one of
the stars of twenty years ago; Vic
Willis, a crack right-hander, and Mai
Kittredge. a formidable catcher.
The St. T,ouls fctub which faced Bos
ton that day alao had none high-class
talent. Jesse Burkett. old "Crab"
Buckett. a famous batsman, led ofT for
the Cardinal*. He was followed by
Kmmett Heidrick, one of the most
polished outfielders of his day. Pat
Donovan managed the club a,nd play
ed right field. Later In hi* career he
managed the Senators, Dodgers and
Red Sox. without ever winning a big
league pennant. Dan MoGann, who
later played first base on McGraw s
crack champion teams of 1S04 and
100.V guarded first ba*e for St. Louis,
while old Jack Ryan was catcher.
He Was Sklflti Afcoat.
' Moran was shifted around the Bos
ton team quite a bit before he got a
chance to catch. He played
field for three games on May 15, 16
and 17. On May 21, Selee gave the
young catcher a try at an Infield po
sition and played him at third base.
The next afternoon Moran was sta
tioned at second base, and finally on
May 23 he got his first chance be
hind the hat. He wu coupled up
with Charley Plttlnger. who won an
easy victory over the Pirates by a
score of 7 toll. Pat did his bit In the
Roston victory, being credited with
seven putouts and two assists.
Moran was older than the average
rookie when he came Into the big
leagues. He was twenty-five years
old when he made his first appear
ance In a big league box score. Mo
ran was born In the. centennial year
on February 7, 1878. Pat came Into
the world via Fltchburg. Mass.. and
he has stuck to the old town ever
since. Pat has seen a lot of the out
side world In his ramble?, but he
never saw anything that convinced
him that there wa* a better place to
live in than Fltchburg.
Moran was a spindle boy in the
ntchburg cotton mills when li* first
hegan to attract attention as a town
player. He started to play ball In
1 <w>7 with the Lyons club of the New
York state League, and played there
two years. In 1R90 and 1!>00 Pat
played with Montreal of the old East
ern League.
W**M Have liWlH TBere.
The advent of the American Leugun
really started Moran In the major
leagues, though a player of Pat's abil
ity unquestionably would have landed
In the fast set sooner or later. Tho
new league took both of Selee's tegu
lar catchers. Billy Sullivan and Bill
Clarke. The former beoame the
crack catcher of the W'nite Sox.
To patch tip his depleted catching
staff Selee engaged the veteran Kit
tredge and purchased Moran from the
Montreal club. Moran got Into fifty
three games In 1IWM, and finished th?
season with a batting average of .21H
Moran remained with Boston until

Hagen, Barnes, and Brady Are
Possible Exceptions, But
Rule Holds Good. !
One often hears stories of profes
tlonal golfers who, eo rumor has It,
make i? to $10,000 annually through
club salaries, instruction,, prise money
and exhibitions. Such men as Jim
Barnes and Walter Hagen are said to
make $10,000 or more without snv
trouble, and it Is probable that Mike
Drady will join that select class this
year at Detroit It Is doubtful, how
ever. that there are many more pro
fessionals in the country coming
under that head.
Of course, Donald Ross, who is kept
busy laying out links all over the
United Stater and also serves as major
domo at Plnehurst during the season ,
there, Is given a professional rating '
officially, but can hardly be said to'
be among the general run of "pros.''
He makes more money in a twelve
month then any other man whose
sole income Is derived from the royal
and ancient game. In other words,
he has something .good to sell and he
gets a good price for his services.
Coursfc architectural work accounts
in large part for Ross' constantly In
creasing yearly revenue, but it does
not tell the whole story. Plnehurst
help/ to keep the wolf from Ross' door
quite a hit, since he is the secretary
and treasurer there.
Edward E. Babb, president of the
Boston Athletic Association, Is the
man who Is really responsible f.->r
Ross taking up course architect work.
Ross was the first open champion of ,
Massachusetts. He held two of the ,
first eight titles, his brother. Alec,
capturing the other six.

Mile. Lenglen and M. Gobert,
\ French Champions, Will
Visit This Country.
Mile. Suzanne Lenglen. the wonder
ful French girl who won the world'#
lawn tennis championship at Wim
bledon, London, and Andre H. Gobert,
the famous Frenchman who sained
the honors upon hard court In Eu
rope. are likely to 'stand as com
petitors on the American courts dur
ing ?he Coming season.
As the present International cor
respondence arranges !t. Mile. I.*ng
lan is proposing venture here
for a trial by Mrs. George W. Wight
man, the champion, for women.
Gobert is keen to visit this coun
try, as his meetings with leading
Americans during the war-time
tournaments in France have stimu
lated his interest in the game In the
United States. There Is. of course,
the additional Incentive that the^ pro
visions for Pavia Cup matches will
mak? It possible to hold a number
of the preliminary services for the
blue ribbon of the lawn tennis courts
The- offering of the International
cup for women by Mrs. Wlghtman
has aroused considerable interest
among women The acceptance of
the trophy, which Is likely to be
come as great a factor In the de
velopment of the game as th? Davis
Cup, along with its conditions, ihust
be accepted at the annual meeting
of the United States National Uwn
Tennis Association. The data for
this meeting has been set for Friday.
February 0, at the Waldorf-Astoria.
New York city.
Gobert lit actually expected to
head the French invasion when It
comes, wKlch is not likely to be
until in July. The reason for this Is
that Mile. Lenglen has expressed a
desire to Uefend h?r winning of the
championship on the turf at Wimble
don. The tournament there will be
held early In July. Gobert is also a
I'alrly regular contender at Wlmbla
bledon. so that the French players
are not likely to be due until after
the great meeting there has been de
Such an able critic of the courts as
fharles Chambers, of the Kings
County Tennis Club, who saw much
of Gobert in 1'arls last sear.on, de
clares that he Is even more of a giant
In physical proportions than Gerald
U Patterson, the Australian. There
ure followers of the game who de
clare that Gobert hits with greater
fury and tremendous pow*r ovntm
head than Maurice 15. McJ-oughlin
when the California Comet was go
ing at the top of hi* pace. Accord
ing to Chambers, the famous French
man rarely comes up to the net. He
lilts so powerfully, however ?s to dlu
courage opponents, while his ability
to bombard the side lines and to
pass at irresistible speed Is such as
to make him formidable against the
greatest of the men In Kurope.
If It is true that Low T?-ndler. the
Philadelphia lightweight, has Joined
forces with Billy Gibson, the Quaker
will be kept busy in Jersey rings In
Ihe future. Tcndler has a great rec
ord. He is one of the few good light
weights able to make 13.1 pound*
without weakening himself. As
Leonard has announced that he means
to retire at the close of the present
