McGraw and Mack
Veterans Among the j
Big League Pilots !
Each Will Begin Eighteenth
Tear as Manager When
1920 Season Opens. -
k By JACK VEIOCK,
International News Sports Editor.
NEW YORK, Feb. 20.—John McGraw
Connie Mack, veteran field generals
Nation#! and American leagues.
■KTIs of long standing, will commence
Kheir eighteenth year as managers when
'the baseball season opens next April.
These veterans have records that speak
more eloquently than any word picture
of their ability as pilots of winning ball
teams. MqGraw has won six National
Jgggue pennants with the Giants in his
Seventeen years as a manager and has
captured one world’s championship.
Mack’s famous Athletics —famous In
years gone by—have also annexed six
pennants under his leadership, but they
have outdistanced the Giants in the mat
ter of winning world's championships,
having pulled down three. When the bell
rings April 14 Mack and McGraw will
go out to get the jump on each other in
the matter of winning pennants. They
hold the record In modern baseball as
pennant-wlnnlnr managers and there Is
no questioning the rivalry between them.
MoGSAW STILL
Ftl4. OF FIGHT.
McGraw’s Giants were fairly out
distanced by the fast-going Reds last
season. But this is another year, and
despite rumors that he would probably
retire at the close of the 1919 season, the
coming spring will flud McGraw again
on the bench and the coaching lin?s urg
ing his team on to victory. Mack's
Athletics, composed largely of- young
f ‘layers now. will enter the coming Amer
can league race in the ‘‘dark hoss” class.
But Mack Is through selling stars. He
is going to try his hand at building np
another pennant winner.
With the exception of George Gibson
of the Pirates there will be no new
managers in the field thiß year, and a
majority of the field pilots in both
learnes are pretty well established In
tfcelr managerial berths. Hughie Jen
nings is one of the older class of man
agers. He has been serving the De
troit Tigers since 1907. r He was pre
ceded at Detroit by George Stallings,
Frank Dwyer, Ed Barrow, Bobby Lowe
and Bill Armour. The White Sox have
had a good many managers, too. Clark
Griffith. Dick Pndden, Jimmy Callahan.
Billy Sullivan, Hugh Duffy and Clarence
Rowland held the reins la Chicago prior
to Eld Gleason's appointment.
OTHER FORMER
MAJOR PILOTS. -
The Red Sox have had Jimmy Collins,
Jim McGuire, Fred Lake. Pat Donovan,
Jake Stahl, BUI Carrigan and Ed Bar
row at the wheel since the American
league came Into existence. The Cleve
land Indians have also had a good many
managers. Jim McAleer, Bill Armour,
Nap Lajoie. Jim McGuire, George Stovall,
Harry Davis, Joe Birmingham and Lee
Fobl held sway before Trls Sneaker was
appointed last July. In Washington
Clark Griffith was preceded by Jim
Manning, Tom Loftus. Jake Stahl. Joe
CantUlon and Jim MeAleer. The Yanks
have been piloted by Clark Griffith, Kid
Elberfeld. Hal Chase, Harry Wolverton.

Donovan and Miller Huggins. The

Leaders Fight Hard
KOKOMO. Ind., Feb. 20—The Kokomo
Chamber of Commerce basket team de
feated the T. M. C. A. Leaders five of
Indianapolis in a spirited game here last
night, 36 to 18. The clever passing and
floor work of the visitors overcame their
weight handicap and made the game one
of the most exciting seen here recently.
The Leaders counted first and held their
lead until late in the half, when the lo
cals overcame the margin of a 11-to-7
lead at half time. The Indianapolis
aggregation qnlckly tied things up In
the second period, but superior goal
shooting by the Kokomo quintet put
the locals In a comfortable lead late In
the half.
