(The West Virginian's Sporting Expert.) (Copyright. 1517. by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.) What is the "shine ball?" What will it mean in the World Series? Will Eddie Cicotte be able to fool the cream of the National League with something American League players claim he has fooled 'Ban" Johnson with all thi3 season, helping the Sox to cop the American League pennant? Or?is the "shine ball" a myth? 1 am going to tell you what Eddie Cicotte says about it himself. Eddie is given credit with being the Inventor and the originator of this delivery which astute batters of the American League declare has resurrected him Srim on t 1 ?VU4 uu CO! V tti|> IU HID UUBIIBS. Here Is the story of Cicotte on his work: "Tito talk about the 'shine ball" this year has probably had a great deal to do with making one of the leading pitchers in the American League. 1 can state truthfully that the talk has done me more good than any soealled ' 'shine ball.' , "It was merely a matter of psychology. I outguessed the other fellow. "So long as the batters in the league felt that they were batting against something they knew nothing about. I had an advantage. "If you can bluff a fellow into believing yoti are better than he is, you have him 'licked' before you start. 'That Is really the success of the 'shine ball' So long as Speaker, I'hapman, Baker, Pipp and other heavy batters of the league thought I was feeding them something 'phoney.' I had something on them. It is the same proposition that beat Terry RlcGovcrn in his famous light against Young Corbett. Corbett was not the better man. but he made Mennvnnn V.inlj- Isc "I have been accused or everything but murder this year. They have said I used Talcum Powder. Licorice, and a number ot other things on the hail but they have never found a sin rlo instance in which they could really get the goods on me.
