& ••x MORMRTY OF THE TIGERS A HOME PUTE STEALER NOT A FAST MAN ON THE BASES, BUT ONE WHO 8TUDIES THE PITCHER. TVere are faster base runners than George Moriarty of tbe Detroit team, but mighty few fellows have a brain that moves more quickly. At least five times last year Moriarty pulled off the seemingly impossible feat of stealing home. In each instance he took a desperate chance and succeed ed. He did not jump wildly at the deed, but used every ounce of gray matter to make his efforts possible. Strangely enough in each game the stealing of home proved the turning point in the contest, making a Tiger victory certain. Moriarty always made a study of the pitcher when reaching first base. If he was slow in delivering the ball. George Moriarty. he was quick to take advantage oi the fact. Neither did Moriarty pass up the catchers in his base running. If he discovered that every now and then the receiver would just about toss the ball back to the pitcher, he would start the delayed steal. It's safe to say that the Tiger's thirdsack er pulled off the delayed steal as much if not more than any other man In the country. The five thefts of home made by Moriarty were due to the big lead he secured and the long swing indulged In by the pitcher preparatory to de livering the ball. Just as soon as Moriarty discovered that the pitcher was indulging in a longer wind up than usual he would start to slowly edge up to the plate, allowing the pitcher to deliver sometimes as many as four or five balls before making the dash for home. TJhe Detroit third Backer isn't slow on the paths by any means, but the celerity of his brain makes him a more dangerous man on ,the oases than .players with much r* «.i* 00 a CD O •a CD 3 3 •a a so 2 s» -o zr to CL •F* ft CD ft CO CO »fl Off, fi5 S TJ 08 CO W a Br E 2. 3 CD 0» sl -CT8 BteoSS S 3 0 ,- I 0 3 ,^1 -3H i-.

Any .time he reached third last year the umpire behind the plate set himself for a decision at the plate, as he looked for Moriarty to take the chance.

Wheh the small number of fatalities of all branches of sport in England is considered, America suffers by com parison. It is interesting to note in the recent statistics which have been given out at Oxford university, Eng land, that only two deaths have been reported from participation in college athletics at the various institutions in England. Dr. Brooks of Oxford, who made the inquiry, has tabulated his returns from those in charge of athletics at the va rious English colleges and numerous schools, and in the last 20 years there were only five deaths that could in any way be attributed to participation in athletics. Donaldson Breaks World Record.

Joe Oans says he would like to fight Wolgast. The 40-round battle was a fight be tween iron men. Nelson who always has favored the long distance, and never warmed up to a fight until 20 rounds had passed, found in the Ca dillac, Mich., boy one who could stand the punishment and improve as the battle progressed. Only once in the entire battle did Nelson have a chance of winning. It was in the twenty-second round when his right found Wolgast's chin and he sent the Michigan lad to his knees. Again he shook him up with a hard smash and it looked as if the Dane would win. Wolgast came back for more, how ever, and when the twenty-third round came, it was seen that the Battler had shot his bolt. There never has been a harder or more vicious fight in the American ring. It was a foul battle, both using their heads in butting. Nelson wants another fight and says he will reverse the decision next time. He has been fighting nearly 14 years, and Wolgast has been in the ring about four. It would seem a wise thing for Nelson to give up the game now, as he has a fortune of more than $100,000. Nelson got $12,000, and one third interest in the fight pictures for being defeated, while Wolgast pulls down only $4,750 for his share. Nel son as champion dictated the terms. Now it is Wolgast who Is in a posi tion to take the lion's share next time. The pictures should bring Nelson $25, 000 more. Each boy bet heavily on himself. San Francisco will get the Jeffries Johnson fight and I can say "I told you so." Oleason and Rlckard, the promoters, have gotten together and have come to the conclusion that the Pacific coast metropolis is the only place for the battle. Salt Lake City Is eliminated from further considera tion and all that remains to be done Is to select the site for the ring. Rich mond, the site of the Nelson-Wolgast battle, is under consideration. Jeffries is back on California soil about $CO,000 better off after his long theatrical tour.. The big fellow will go. into training in a few days on his ranch near Los Angeles. He will do some hunting in. the mountains and work principally, for his wind. Jeff's old friends around Los Angeles ex pressed great surprise wh^nfthey saw him after an absence of nearly a year. The huge abdomen that had come nat urally from easy living had disap peared, his eye was clear and he looked as if he was ready to enter the ring right now, but of course he isn't, and won't be for months. Jeffries real izes that it is going to take lots of hard work to get into the proper trim to bring the championship title back to the white race, and he will over look nothing in his efforts to do so. He is a glutton for work when in training and his assistants have rough sledding when they attempt to follow his pace. Some Interesting dope on the two battlers has been culled from the rec ords of Jeffries and Johnson by a New York expert. You will see that Jef fries is a quicker winner over the knockout route than Johnson. Jeff averaged 5 14-15 rounds to the knock out, while the colored man figured 61-3 rounds. JEFFRIES.
