"Zach had been in the army and was not in good shape to pitch base ball, so I told him I'd give him $1,000 to finish out the season with- us. I figured he'd work himselt into obpdi tion and would be useful pitching to batters, if nothing more. There were three months to go, which mans he was to get some $333 per month. which Isn't bad for a green pitcher. ME PACES WI'. LOUIG DROWNS. "Each went to work In earnest. He's a serious chap, y'kn'ow, and was al ways ready to pitch, no matter how hot the day,. But he was far too wild to be used in a regular game until al most at the close of the season. "Finally I went scouting and George McBridt was in charge of the team when it landed in St. Louis. George decided to try out Erah. He did, too, ordering the big fellow to start the game. "Well, to make a long story short, Zach went along to beat the band, holding the Brownies helpless and was leading in the fifth, when the Browns began touching him up. George got nervous and sent in Wal. ter Johnson. Bach went to the showert and Walter finished the game in good style, giving Zach the victory. That was his one game for the year, and it went only five innings, at that. But the victory went into the records, just the same. WANTED MORE MONEY.

You've pitched five innings this year. haven't you? Now that means $200 per inning, doesn't it? Where do yeou get your kick?" "Sach grinned a bit and repeated, 'I ain't gettin' mnugh money, 'ecordbng to my way o' thinkinr. "'You come bhink next year and diow mne you can win ball gamnes and you'Ul get all you think yourself worth,' I toMd him. "Well, today Zach has a great fu ture in baseball.
