However, if the Giants and YankeeS hook up in the world series. the ad tantage would be with the New York National League club, unless the spirit of past world series woult carry Baker to new fields of glory. In Frankie Frisch the Giants have Ohe of the real stars of the present generation. Considering Frisch's ability from every angle, battiog ability, base-running skill, fielding prowess and a winning disbosition. the writer regards the former Fordham player as the most valuable player In the National League today. Came From Fordham. , Frisch has been a star for the Giants almost from the day that he eame to the New York Nationals from tordham in mid-season of 1919. The "Fordham Flash," as New York has nicknamed the player, does equally well at third or second base, and had McGraw permitted him to remain at second there Is no doubt that he would have become the Eddie Collins of the National League. His great speed, which has made him the leading baserunner of his league, also comes into godd stead In Frisch's fielding, and his stops of balls hit behind second base are par ticularly brilliant. Frisch leads the third basing rival contenders In both fielding and hit ting. He also has made eight home runs against nine for Baker, though Frisch has taken part in considsrably more games. Larry Gardner. like Frank Baker, Is a veteran of numerous world's series wars, and if the Indians again represent the American League I* the October classic, third base will be one of Cleveland's strongest pooe Uns. As OW As Baker. Gardner Is the same age as Frank Baker, thirty-five, and In some rey spects the Vermont boy has wore better than the Maryland farmer. For one thing Larry's legs have held up much better. Larry was hitting .321 when our averages were closed, ten points be kind Frankie Friach. Like Baker, Gardner has hit three world's series home runs in four series, though his homes were not as spectacular as those hit by Baker. Larry made two against Brooklyn In successive games In 1916. though on the whole his world's series batting averages usu ally have been disappointing. Gardner's wrld series averages. which have been pW for a normal .30 hitters, were as folo s: 1913. SGants, .179; 1916, against es, .236; 191, against Brooklyn. .176; 1920. against Brooklyn. .206. Are Far Better. Frank Baker's world series marks are better: 1910, against Cubs. .409; 1911, against Giants. .375; 1918, against Giants. .460; 1914, against Braves, .260. Pittsburgh's third baseman, Clyde Barnhardt. hardly ranks with the other men under dIc ssion, though he is a splendid fielder and a player with lots of promise. However,- this is Bernhardt's frst season in the big leagues as a reg ular, and ha has still much to learn. Youngsters like Tierney and Barn bert wili be the big question marks of the world series If Pittsburgh wins the National League pennant. Statisties and figures faIl to give an accurate line on such youngsters, and their play often is a matter oif disposition. They may rise to unex pepted heights duging t50 excitement of a big series, or. on the C?ther band, in trying to do too much they may fail Ignobly. (Copyright. 1931, Al Mainre Delis.)

Galves ton's mountainous flinger. has started for Washington. He is due to report to Manager McBride by Wednesday, and Is almost oertain to be seen on the mound opposing the White Box or Tigers this week. President Griffitei did not expect Mc Grew to report for a trial with the Washington Club until next spring and was surprised to receive a tele. gram from Texas that the big'pitcher was on his pay. Needless to say, President Griffith and Manager Mc Bride were pleased at the information. McGerew is said to be taller and big ger than Bryan Harris, Connie Mack's star flinger. "Dangerous Dan" is Said to stand mix feet six inches in his l'ere tooteles. All accounts have him com ing to the big league to stay. Indeed. certain Yankee scouts predict McGrew will outshine Bryan Harris. Manager McBride will very likely start Tom Phillips and Ralph Miller in the games yet to be played here. These two newcomers are showing up the best in the morning practices be ing staged at the ball yard. Phillips has more experience than most of the rookies end looks good enough to hold his own right now. BALTIMORE SEMI-PROS CHALLENGE GIBRALTAR Gibraltar A. C..

ORIOLES BREK WORL RECORD FOR GAMES WON Baltimore Club, With 117 .Vic tories, Passes Mark Set by Cubs -in 1906. BALTIMORE, Sept. 19.-Baltimore set up a new world's record for games won in a season by winning the first of a double-header here yesterday from Reading by 10 to 0. then losing the second, 10 to 7. The victory in the first game en abled the Birds to turn in 117 games for the season and broke the record the Chicago Cubs made in the Na tional League In 1904, when they turned in 116 victories for that cam paign. Boston Red Sox hold the record for games won in the American League, having captured 101 games during the 1912 season. Langdon Cube Win. The Langdon Cube won a ten In ning game from the Brookiand In dians by the sncore of 13-1 1. Captain Thompson of the Cube starred with fine hits out of five times up, in cluding a homer and two triple. TAGING ALL THE BASES No game at Georgia avenue today. Only two more weeks of baseball before the big series begin. It i likely that the Indians and Yanks wifl determine the flag-winner when they meet in New York. -A worlds series In New York this year will be the first In one city since the Cubs and Sox played in Chipage In 1904. Judging from a few peeks at the supply, President Griffith has found a few promising young pitchers for the season of 1322.. The griffs have three games with the White lox, three with the Tigers, and one with the Mackmen before Washngton's season end. Johnny Ogden, Jack Dunn's young college twirler, has won thirty-one contests for the Baltimore Orioles this year against six defeats. Mike McNally was the hero of the Yankees' victory ever Detroit. His homer accounted for the first run and a timely sacrifie hunt put the winning run on second. The Cards, with Pfeffer working, outmaneuvered the Phillies.

For five frames Johnson and Coveleskie fought an even fight, neither having any advantage. The fun began with the sixth. It also ended with the sixth. Two were dead when Larry Gard ner, Steadity declining to grow old, whacked safely to center. Johnson appeared to ascend into the air with that bingle' and walked the next three gents. . The pass to O'Neil forced Gardner over the dish with what appeared to be the win ning run. Then Johnson came down to earth and fanned Covela.ke. Pat Goharity Appers., It was more or les glei that the Griffs came in for their whacks in the sixth. That one run threat. ened to swing the gate cleed on them. Stan Coveleslke's reputation was having Its effect. And then. showing the rapidity with which things can change In baseball, Sam Rice beat out a bounder to Larry Gardner and the fans were roaring. They sniffed what was coming. Some maid that Gardner loafed on Rice, taking his time about coming up for the peg, The Indian had to go far to his left, pick up a badly bounding hall while facing second base and then, turning, throw to first. With a fast bird like Rife ailing down the Une. it was almost an Impossilblity for. kim to get the runner. He didn't, but no blame should go to him on that account. The fans.were roaring for "Gooem GosUn to get a hit, but the rookie compormised by taking a walk, bringing up Hank Shanks. . Hank neatly sacrifled and that one Cleve land run didn't look so- big. Man ager McBride immediately yanked Donie Bush and, greatly to the fans delight, sent In Pat Gharrity. 'The slugging catcher was given an ova tion on his parade to the plate. Ghsrity Turns Trick. Coveleskie realised the difficulties of the situation and tried his best to get rid of Gharrity. He failed. Pat banged a sising grounder down the third base line outside of Gardner but inside of the bag. Over the plate came Rice and Goulin and Pat himself reached se'cond on the throw to the infield. The Griffs were ahead. Val Pichnich waited around and took four wide ones. That kept the cheering going, and it became deafen ing when Walter Johnson belted a ringle to left field. scoring Gharrity. To the surprise of everybody. Includ ing the Indians. Picinich went around to third base, reaching It with a pretty slide. Joe Judge's long fly to Wood scored Picinich with the fourth and final tally. The big Inning had been staged. The Griffs were ahead to stay. It was a perfeet day for baseball. The crowd packed the stand and leak ed out Into the field boxes. The rumored Coveleakle-Johnson duel drew all the real fans and the game was well worth seeing. Sam Rice showed several fine bursts of speed in the field. Joe Wood and Charlie Jamieson. too, captured flie after racing with incredible msed over the grass. Joe Judge turned in the most bril liant bit of fielding. It came in the third frame after Steve O'Neill had jounced a single to center. Coel--14 attempted to sacrifice and raised a puny fly toward first base. Judge was in like a flash and, with arms out stretched. just managed to corral that dropping ball. Hot dog!
