THE CALUMET NEWS. NAP LAJOIE BETTER THAN HANS WAGNER THIS YEAR Firate Star is Notably Worried Cleveland Man is Flay ing Eis Best. "7 . BOTH ARE SLOWLY PASSING For years tho baseball fans have been pretty evenly divided us to who una the better ball player, liana Was- tr or Larrv Lajole. As these men played in different leagues, fated dif firetit pitchers, tho comparison was simply based on observation Of tho two Wngnor was perhaps the most aggressive; he certainly was th most picturesque player in the busi- both nt tho bat and in the Held and would naturally Impress the gen eral run of haseball people. Lajole always cool, playing the most ditllcult lialls with ease and seldom slipping up one of ihe most perfect throwers In the game, with u short irituial tmap of the wrist and a perfect model of grace nt the bat. There was little In his play to enthuse the spectator not familiar with the beauties of sav ing distance. .Men of Wagner" a stripe are bound to receive double the ap plause over Lajolo while playing be fore largo crowds. Wiener makes the Kim pie plays ap- near dllllcult, while Utjole was mak ing dlfllcult plays look dead easy. And both men doing phenomenal nll-round work both In the Held and at the bat, ? tuWlno. n ( hanee on the huses 1 oi.lv when the batting was light and runs scarce, while Wagner never iosi an opportunity to try to steal a base, no matter what the score was. Itoth great players, as modest as sunflowers on Cape Cod, Kf" - w.ur na tho twin klmrs of the diamond. The time comes when tho greatest of players must commence to fall off In ..i .i. Tii la Benson the crcat Wagiu r ' appears worried, while Lajole, free j from the care of management, and . . ...... ll.l'l.r loslnir i-nlll. WOl'King W HO Jinn. " a t.lnatlon. never played liner 'ball, showing the way to nil batsmen by his Kclontlllc und tremendous drives. For the first time in his life the great Wagner Is playing on the de fense at the -bat, trying to pick out only the good ones, when In the past he was willing to slash away at any thing he could reach. The time will soon roll around when this great pair will have passed Into the has-been class, nnd the genera tions to come, of both player and fan. who have not witnessed their best woik, will smile when they are men tioned as great players. GOOD BACKSTOPS SCARCE IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE flood catchers Just now are at : nremiiim in the American league IllKh class receivers are always in de mand, but there are several clubs In Itnn Johnson's organization at the present time who would part with quite a sum of Hlthy lucre to strength en that department of the game. Take the Washington club, for ln Ftunce: Manager McAleer has on: sweet backstop in Charley Street, as few men have anything on the pep pery windpaddlst of the Nationals. When Street Is in the game the club Is well fortified behind the bat. but what would happen should something muse Street's retirement? To say the least, it would bo one tough blow for the Nationals. McAleer has no other high-class catcher on his pay roll; In fact, he has only one other catcher Jack Hardy and while Jack Is ready and willing, he Is hardly of big league caliber. Hardy would bo ublo to handle the delivery of most of tho Washington pitchers fairly well, but is not able to catch Walter Johnson. St. Louis, the tall-end kids, have a very fair catcher In Jimmy Stephens. He is not at all spectacular, but de livers the goods in pretty good style. Stephens 1.4 a small chap, none too strong, nnd consequently Is not a catcher who can work every day with out Hoon showing tho effects. Jack ''Connor has two youngsters In KIM fer and Allen and, while both give promise, still .they are not to be de pended upon. With Hilly Sullivan in the game. Chicago would ho well fortlHed, but Injuries may keep Sullivan out all sea son; as a result tho White Sox fans must content themselves with the work of Iilock and Tayne. The lioston lied fiox have one excel lent catcher In Hill Carrlgan, but Dill's arm won't stand the strain of every day, although he has been doing all tho work up to date. John I. Taylor ' said to be making all kinds of ef '"rts to get a man to help out tho former IIolv Cros eolleilan. He Is hoping Jack Kllenow will fill the bill but Jack must he an uncertainty, or Mew York -would never let him get away. His arm Is said to be bad Detroit. Philadelphia. Cleveland and ?ew York arc fairly well fortified, al though the recent Illness of Clarke harts Cleveland considerably. It's a cinch that the scouts of nil f Han'n clubs are keeping close tab ?a the bu.sh league catcherst BASEBALL FORTUNES SEEN IN THE LEAGUE STANDINGS Last Year's Pennant Winners Have Fallen Behind in Almost Every League. UP TODAY, DOWN TOMORROW The fluctuating fortunes of baseball clubs la demonstrated nowhere as In the league standings. Always will conditions be me same In the old pas time. Today it's the top of the league; tomorrow second place or further down. Contrast the present standings of those teams which won pennants last year and It will be found that very few are in top place now. In the American league Detroit occupies third position. Of course this is only temporary for Jennings' Tigers. Tho Pittsburg world champions ure per forming miserably this season. At tin tall end of the llrst division they will bo found at this writing. It Is quite probable they will come up again but a second championship seems some what dubious. Louisville -finished llrst In the Ameri can association last year; the Colo nels nre last this season.
