THE CALUMET NEWS. lttHUHBB I BASEBALL I I ( Ool S y 1 irWTyV irtVfrSS I STANDINGS OP THE CLUBS. MUCH PRACTICE REQUIRED JO LEARN SACRIFICE HIT Jimmy Shcckard of Chicago Cubs Calls Skill One of Fine Arts of Baseball. SCIENCE OF INSIDE BASEBALL . "Sacrifice hitting la an art acquired jurfectly only afur months ad months of i.ractlce," Raid Jimmy Shcckanl of the Chlcugo Cuba recent ly to a Chlcuso critic "No player can wulk out to the plate and lay down a hunt which will advance another run mr unless ho has tried his skill along that particular line hundreds of times. Tlio big leagues today number more nuecessful sucrlflce hitters than In any nrevious season. "All this Koes to 'show the growing .,.i..iw nmone managers to bolster in, tlie 'Inside' forces of their teams Many a ball game lias been won with the aid of a chan sacrmye miugmr? n runner, or possibly two, around th base lines In advance of a heavy hit ter, who at the proper moment come-, through with the needed single." The champion long distance sacrifice story conies out of the Southern asso ciation. Hero It Is: It stems that theru was a. man on first in a particularly close game and the hatter going ui wie piuiu m-, structed to lay down a bunt. He put a rolUr toward third, the flrrt base man was drawn in and the second baseman rushed over to cover first. Tlie third sacker picked up the ball and pgged away to first. Everybody saw the ball on the way. It hit the baseman's glove, and dis appeared. When the hunt for the ball liei?an the 'first runner was hugging (second, while the batter overran first and Mumbled and fell out In right field. He quickly arose, retowhed first and nailed down to second and persuaded the other man to hustle along ahead of him home with the winning runs. The fans nnd players thought the hall was lost In the grass, and finally It was found In right field. How It got there was a mystery 'until tho man who hit the bunt explained. It ap peared that the ball bounded from the second baseman's glove up under the runner's arm as ho sprinted past the hag. The runner closed his arm down tlKht. kept on running, gave a stage fall nut In right field, and nt the pntrn- thie let the Ijall roll away from hlni Tho rlirM fielder wasn't wise to the "InsiuV play nnd no one woke up un til the hitter walked out to the right field, dug around In the high grass and . finally located the hall. BADGER CREW IS FEARED BY EASTERN COLLEGE MEN rouKhkeepsIe, N. Y., June 22. Of nl' the crews here Wisconsin seems to be the most feared. In fact, young F.d ward Ten Kyck has brought east a crew which Is generally admitted to le stronger than tho Syracuse crew which his father coaches. Wisconsin has had one race to date, that with the University of Washington at Mad ison. Wisconsin won that race easily by some four lengths, but there Is no medium of comparison to tell whether Wisconsin' a performance was good "r bad. The Wisconsin oarsmen have been noting In a most mysterious manner since their arrival. Apparently they do not want any of their rivals to see theru nt work. If tho other crews go up the river Wisconsin goes down to train. If the Padgers come upon a rival crew or coach, even when rowing trial the men stop und paddle until the enemy vanishes. To the other coaches this looks very childish, for what Wlscosln does In practice win not make the other crews row a yaru faster or slower. As one of the coaches Rb1. 1 "I never care how mysterious tnp(n',n1 lnc figure stated being entirely other crou-i net nr how much their coaches try to conceal their real strength. They nil have to show what they can do on the day of the race, Md It wouldn't help or hinder us to knoW In advance." Wisconsin has one of the lightest crews on tho river, 'their average elKht being only 164 iounds. Fur thermore, the crew Is made up almost fnilrely of new men. If Wisconsin "Mould win It would he the first Poughkeepsle victory on record for the Hadsers. At the same time a goid ninny persons who nre getting tired of the monotony caused hy Cornell's nn nal triumphs would welcome the "iRht of Wisconsin taking tho blue ribbon event of the rowing season. Hut the form nhown hy the Itadgers to date Ones not Indicate any such as tonishing result. ' AUSTRALIAN CHAMP COMING. liill Lange, the resident heavyweight champion of Australia.

IT'S THE WAY OF THE GAME Mar baseball players are certainly a mighty rlnky commodity. One year a player may show to ad vantage, look like a million dollars, cause hl.s owner to turn down all kinds of fabulous offers for his services and th following yar prove a big fall ure. While every dub owner Is In the baseball business to get tho money sun lis iiie one ambition or every owner and manager to win pennants, otherwise there would he much more trading und selling of players among the various clubs of the majors, and minors. Civic prldo often keeps an owner from rclllug one of his stars for a big sum. The fact that such sale may also bring upon hi head tho wrath of the fans plays a part as well In the baseball market. Four yeurs ago (Jeorge Stone of the St. Iiuis club had the American league In batting. Stone and hl.i big ntlek was feared by every pitcher in the Johnsonian circuit, every club owner would have been delighted buy Stone at most any old price, while the St. Louis fans simply Idol Ized their batting king. All kinds offers were made Owner Hedges, but he turned a deaf ear to them. ' Stone was expected to be the big noise the following year, but he prov ed a rank disappointment. Trouble over salary caused him to get a late start. Injuries set him back several times Just as he was getting Into his stride and all In all he had a bad year. One of the injuries to his nnkle slowed him up considerably and since then a number of hits that he used to beat out go to tho putout column. Three years ago Stone would have brought down something like $10,000, yet It's questionable If any club would pay much more for him than the draft price now. A few years ago Manager 'MeOrnw of the New York ("Slants, offered the St. Louis Nationals $10,000 for Pitch er Kargcr and was willing to throw In a couple of young pitchers to boot Owner Robinson, of the Cardinals, wanted to give. the. fans a. inner and turned down the offer without , even hesitating. Kargcr failed to show the next year, was traded to Cincinnati and tho turned loose to a minor league club. He is now with the Hoston ...ina but is nothing like the Ditcher he was a few years ago. Not so many years ago Elmer Flick Jack Powell. Lou Crlger. Terry Tur- rer. Herman Schacfcr. Ixe Tannehlll, IlllI Urndloy, F.lll Donovan and a host of other stars would have brought fnncv i.rlces were they placed on the ..Miti block of baseball. Wdle quite a few of the old boys are still valuable to have around there wouldn't be any riot should they be offered for -sale and wouldn't bring one-fifth the price they would have commanded live years neo. C.ood players are players who take long chances, nnd players who take unusual risks are of course very liable to Injury, and slight Injuries otien rum star players.
