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

Here Is the story of Cicotte on his

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
"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

you that I do not use talcum powder
or any of the other artificial aids I
have been accused of using on the
ball, but, as 1 said before, the secret
of this "shine ball" has not been material.
It has been psychological.
"The main benefits I have derived
have been from letting the other players,
who have batted against me, do
most of the talking, while I kept still
and kept on working, as I have worked
since I have been in this league."
