SCIENCE OF INSIDE BASEBALL

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.

The champion long distance sacrifice

a rolUr toward third, the flrrt base

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

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
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
"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.

BASE BAIL STARS MIGHTY
Men Who Command Fancy Sal
aries One Season May be Dis
carded in the Next.
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
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
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
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. Yes, Indeed,
players aro more dcllcato
daintiest bits of bric-abrac.
