Barons Buy Spitball Heaver
PITCHER GREGORY IS \
BOUGHT FROM THE [
LEADING OTTUMYVAS I
PITCHER FRANK GREGORY
PURCHASED BY BARONS
FROM OTTUMWA CLUB
New Acquisition is a Youthful Spitball Pitcher—Will Supplant
Ray Boyd on Hurling Staff—Youngster Will Join
Birmingham Soon
Twlrler Frank Gregory, a youthful
righthander, was purchased yestyday
morning from the Ottumwa club In the
Central association by Manager Moles
worth. A sensational spltball heaver in
the Central, the chubby Baron leader
hopes that he will bolster UP the Baron
twirling staff. Satisfied that Boyd will
not find form for several days, Manager
Molesworth will replace the former star
with the youngster.
Gregory Is a towering moundsman.
weighing 185 pounds, the new acquisition
stands five feet 11 incites. He Is a young
pitcher, as he debuted in professional
ranks last season with the Ottumwa club.
So far this season, Gregory has won ID
games and has lost but four. Last year
Gregory finished a successful season and
was secured by the Cincinnati Reds and
worked in a few games. However he was
considered to he lacking In experience and
was returned for seasoning.
The purchase price was not mentioned,
but it Is understood tout the Barons part
ed with several shekels to laf:.! the young
ster. He has stated that he is willing to
play for the Barons and will heport here
either Saturday or Sunday from the Cen
tral association.
While the passing of Boyd, as a Baron,
will bo deeply be regretted by the local
fans, with whom he Is a favorite, Man
ager Molesworth could not afford to con
tinue with the impaired hurling corps.
The genial spitball heaver has been given
as fair a trial as he might desire and
his failure has broken up hopes among
the Barons. Although Boyd has never
been started by the manager, it was
deemed unwise to risk a game with the
club at t he .500 * mark. However,
Ray has been sent in as relief pitcher
in two games and was scored upon in
each game.
Should Gregory prove a winner. Bir
mingham will be in excellent condition
for a trial at the rag. Prough is twirling
the most marvelous ball in his career with
a string of 13 victories and four defeats.
Hardgrove is following closely, while Bill
Foxen 1h well above the .500 mark. While
Evans has done little on Ills last appear
ances, he sems to have, a lot of stuff.

Under a leaden heaven which frowned
and treatened, Southpaw Bill Foxen
achieved a bizarre victory over the
slumping Turtles, 3 to 2. Defeating the
rain gods. Birmingham triumphed over
the Memphii in a battle featured with
uncanny plays and weird spectacles.
Bill Foxen twirled In fine fettle, re
tiring 10 on strikes at his smoking
shoots and 1mmerging from danger
with ease. Pitted against Foxen was
Southpaw Newton, who waged a fine
battle, but “Doc” suffered from whims
of fate and was beaten.
So dim was the battle field that
twice players were struck with pegs
speeding to check runners. A triple
play added a strange air to the per
formance, while the run getting pro
clivities were levied to the lowering
skies. But despite the inclemency of
the elements, the game was interesting
and fiercely contested.
A slight drizzle developed after the
first two innings, and the clubs fo*ight
on expecting a downfall. But when four
innings had been finished, the heavens
cleared slightly and tlfe game pro
gressed on. While the heavy clouds
darkened the field, Foxen took ad
vantage of the occasions and endowed
his ball with his greatest speed, whif
fing five in the first three sessions.
Triple Play Checks Rally
With the count 3-2, Memphis threat
ened to surmount the lead In the
fourth when Schweitzer was hit and
Absteln singled. Attempting to ad
vance, Shanley rapped a short tap to
Foxen. Bill grabbed the pop up and
heaved to Carroll at first, retiring Ab
stein, while Carroll threw to Ellam and
perfected the triple play.
Perhaps the weirdness of the sur
rounding added extra strangeness to
the game, but it was unusual. In the
second Inning, McBride slid into home
and hoisted Snell into the air. In the
third, Messenger’s return to the plate
struck Foxen in the back, while New
ton suffered in the same mode from
Butler in the fourth.
After a barren first inning, Memphis
was downed in the second but Birming
ham opened operations. McBride and
McGilvray drew consecutive passes.
After Ellam had skied out to left, the
double steal sent the trio nearer the
goal. Clifton rapped gently to Abstein,
who fumbled but recovered and threw
low to the backstop. While the Tur
tle receiver gamely stood his ground,
.AleBride speeded toward home and slid
into the plate. The youthful Snell was
undermined by the dash and was lifted
into the air and toppled over. While
lie arose dazed from the fall McGilvray
scored the second run. Clifton reached
second but two successive outs re
tired the side.
Freak Play Ties Score
Venturing to retrieve the front, Snell and
Newton were struck out by Foxen*s baf
flers, but Love singled to center. Butler
followed with a crashing double to left
field. Baerwald hit between first and
second base. Messenger fielded- the Jut
and shot it toward home, but Foxen
failed to see the peg and was struck. Be
fore the straying return could be fielded,
the Turtles had crossed the platter twice
and had tied the game.
Birmingham returned from the field and
dissolved the deadlock on a similar opera
tion. With Messenger retired, McDonald
drew a pass. Pete Kniseley responded
with a resounding wallop to left and ad
vanced Mack to second. McBride ground
ed to Butler and forced Kniseley at sec
ond. Observing that Snell was off form
at pegging, McDonald darted homeward
as McBride left for second. Butler inter
cepted the peg and heaved to check Mc
Donald at the plate. But “Doc” Newton
failed to see the ball on its flight, and
was struck in the oack. Before it was
retrieved, McDonald scored.
As the skies grew lighter, the game
resolved into a pitcher’s battle. It seemed
as though the Turtles would again bal
ance the count in the fourth inning, when
the brilliant triple play was negotiated.
Schweitzer was occupying second as the
result of being hit, while Abstein’s safe
wallop bad given him access to first.
Shanley attempted to drop an advancer,
but his rap went into Foxen’s hands,
who completed the double to Carroll at
first. Ellam cried for a throw to second
and the side was retired.
Foxen allowed but a sparse single in
the remaining five innings, while Newton
twirled splendidly. Although Kniseley
doubled and McGilvray tripled to right
field, the following batsmen were baffled
by his sharp-breaking hook.

KNIGHT GAINS ANOTHER
TRIAL TO PLAY IN MAJORS
JACK KNIGHT
"Jack” Knight, sometimes a good ball player, who has been In and out
of the American League too many times to remember, Is with us once more.
The dragnet of the Yankees swept over Jersey City and Knight was bagged
for service once more with the New York Americans, probably as first base
man. Knight has played great ball this season for the Skeeters, so Manager
Chance decided to purchase him. He went West with the Yankees.
From the Angle of the Bug
Uy REUBEN A. LEWIS
W[TH the addition of Pitcher
Gregory, the Barons are ma
terially strengthened for the
pennant chase. The spit ball artist is
somewhat of an “iron man," as last
Sunday he pitched Ottumwa to a dou
ble victory. The new Baron partici
pated in over ,0 games last season,
winning 25 and losing 12. In addition
to his damp slant, Manager Moles
worth states that the youngster has a
nice burst of speed.
The Central association has for
warded several splendid players to the
Barons. Ray Boyd, the unfortunate
twirler Gregory supplants, was deliv
ered from the same circuit. Fred Dil
ger was cavorting In the Central when
Moleswortn drafted him, while Artie
Phelan was originally from thu fast lit
tle league. But the choice of the cir
cuit was Wee Willie Prough. Bill was
a star in this league, leading it the
year he was drafted by the Barons
with a fine uveiage. Clifton was also
a player in the Central ranks when he
received the call.
* * •
Carelessly letting the players loiter
in returning to and from their posi
tions, the umpires are permitting many
to partake of cold suppers. Although
President Kavunaugli issued instruc
tions to his a:biters to hurry the
games along and prevent delays, his
officials have failed to comply with the
orders. On Tuesday the game pro
gressed through two hours and 25 min
utes, while Wednesday two hours and
37 minutes were spent witnessing the
battle. Yesterday the time of the con
flict approached the two hour mark
closely.
There is no reason that the game
should take such a long time. The um
pires could add interest to the battle
by stimulating the players to play fas
ter and with hiore pepper. The de
cisions rendered by the arbiters recent
ly have evidently been off, for both
teams have registered constant com
plaints. v rnless the games are played
faster, the starting time should be ad
vanced.
* * • •
So utterly dazz’ed by the poor show
ing of his slumping Phillies was Man
ager Dooin yesterday that he shoved a.
team of substitutes Into the game to
disperse the jinx. The fall of the Phil
lies brings to mind the old truth of the
game that when once a leading team 13
overtaken it .slowly falters and cracks.
For weeks the Philadelphia club led
the sprint in the National and was
voted a favorite. But. the Giants
slowly approached the Daisies and fin
ally surmounted their lead. Then the
Phillies semed to lose confidence,
and have dropped steadily since that
time. Members of the Barons de
clare that a team loses its confidence
after being overtaken. They point to
Cincinnati last season and the Brook
lyns this X£ar.
• • •
PJver sirice Walter Johnson came Into
prominence as a pitcher, the baseball
world has wondered what it was that
generated his terrific steam. But the
mighty Walter recently measured the
length of his arms from finger tip to
finger tip and it. was found that the
measurement was 82 inches.
Wee Willie Prough stands as a rival
to the mighty Walter, for the big right
hander believes that he has a reach of
at least 80 Inches. Bob P'itzslmmons,
the fighter who is believed to have
the longest reach In pugilism, falls five
or six Inches short, of Johnson’s mark.
Amos Rusie, claimed to have been the
speediest pitcher In baseball, was a
short armed moundsman.
Although “Lll” Marcan appeared on
the coaching linen yesterday, he pre
sented a crippled battle front. The rap
on the back of his loft hand developed
Into a very sore place Wednesday
night, and as the result tie did not
venturetnto the game. It Is improbable
that he will appear this afternoon
against the Turtles.
Far more seriously injured is W alter
Mayer, who is crippled on two digittj of
his throwing hand. The peppery re
ceiver will bo unable to receive "Wee
Willie’* Prough this afternoon, and will
hardly he able to eatch before Mon
day. The thumb of the right hand is
badly swollen, while the middle linger
is still Ionised and sore.

Having turned George Mullln over
to the Montreal club of the Interna
tional league club, Flark Griffith
says he is through purchasing play
ers from other big league clubs, l^ast
year ht went out and brought Pitch
ers V*aughn from New York and Pelty
from St. Tyouis. Neither veteran did
Washington any good, both finding
their way back into the majors. This
season Griffith tried again, getting
George Mullin for $2500. From now on
Griffith will devote more attention to
tiie development of youngsters. John
son, Groom and Boehling will be
worked in order, with Gallia, Engel
and Fashion getting a try at the fourtli
game.

not a difficult contest. The German put
little fire into the game, hut made some
pretty backhand strokes. Williams on the
other hand relied on volleys and long
drives, which at first, were not strong
or well placed, but later improved mar
velously. The German won his set by
keeping the American in the back court
where there w'as no chance of volleying.
The more exciting match was that be
tween Maurice E. Me Lough l in of Han
Francisco, the American champion, and
Otto Froitzhelm. w ho is rated as the best
player in Germany. The contest for a
time seemed to be all the German’s.
Froitzhelm played brilliant tennis al
though he was suffering from a sore
hand. McLoughlin did not show his
form until the later stages.
In the beginning the Get than was able
to get many backhand strokes over with
great speed and also picked up the Amer
icans service coolly. McLoughlin showed
a streak of brilliancy in the second set,
but not until the middle of the third set
did his turn In the game come. From
then on he went ahead and with his
famous service and finely placed drives
wore his opponent down. The weather
cleared after the first match. The at
tendance was about 12tX>.
R. R. Powell, the Canadian champion,
and B. P. Schwengers, the Canadian
champion, won their matches against P.
Do Borman and A. G. Watson respectively
without the loss of a single set. Powell
winning by 6-2; 6-1 and 6-1, and Schwen
gers by 6-4; $-1. and 6-ft.,

tage and outplayed his opponent.

backhand stroke. Wllllams-took the third
game on his service, but the German cap
tured the fourth after D-juce had been
called thrice. The American Anally took
the set In the tenth after hard playing.

for him the dost, second and fourth games
of the second sei. The Afth game was
hard fought, Deuce being called four
times, Williams finally winning. Kreut
zer's service and backhand strokes cap
tured the sixth, but the American won *he
seventh easily.
