Heroes of New York Giants I "baseball I 8 TlUTXl r h wr-r a Wit 8 -! t i ii RUSIE GREATEST SPEED MERCHANT NONE OF PRESENT DAY PITCH ERS COMPARE WITH H I IN CURVES AND , STRAIGHT ONES EQUALLY FAST. ! ' There have hcen fast pitchers by th,. dozen." veteran Jimmy Ryan, "and nil of them, in their time, liave llred that old ball across the niMHT Juat as K-cedl!y as their ftniiKth would lot them. Have you noticed, though, that Just one m.in la taken as the standard of speed, the puc with whom ull others arc com pared? Whenever you Keak of any Fpcedy Innier. what do you Bay? 'Past Amos ItUHle,' 'got as much speed as Kiifie ever had,' that Is how you will always word It. and I think, It will be that way forever. As long as great names are remembered, or base ball i the nation's panic, RuHo will re. nialn upon n pedestal as the cham pion speed merchant, the one pitcher who could send In the ball faster than HiiyoiH! else that ever lived. When you :' ''a8t " Itul." 'u don't moan It, either you only wish to show that your favorite pitcher is a very speedy boy. There Isn't anyone Hs fast as Rusle, there never was, and pt-rhaps there never iiRitln will be. "Words fall, really, to describe the Fltffd with which Ru.sie sent the ball. He was a man of great strength, great width, prodigious muscular strength, and the ability to put every ounce of his weight and sinew into the pitch. Oouplod with this, he had u set of dazzling curves, curves that almost baffled description, and which were manufactured with the surnc effort re quired to produce the speed. Viome men can throw a straight ball with great force, but have to slow up in order to develop curves. Rusle drove in n curved ball with all of his tremendous power. "Yes, Rusle was the .fastest of them all. the greatest In his way, and now he Is poor and useless, with only the memories of the past to cheer him. Rut what n star he was. and how few there are that can even half ap proach him!" GOOD PITCHERS SCARCE. Major League Clubs Refuse to Waive Claims to Several Heaven. flood pitchers are scarce and un Htdu to be obtained. All the clubs are on the lookout for winning ma terial. Whenever an American league club asks fr waivers on n pitcher the managers prick up their oars and balk. Detroit attempted to secure waivers on Works early this spring. Nothing doing. Three clubs hastened to pay l the waiver price, but Tres. Xavin deemed it best to retain Works, which proved a good move. Ronton asked for waivers on Kddle f'lcotte. Two clubs refused, including St. Louis. Hoston held tho pitcher and recently ho has shown nn Im provement. Loss than two weeks ngo Cleveland smiKht waivers on "Heine" perger. "Not If I know it," mumbled Mana ger O'Connor to himself, and he forth with put In his bid for this pitcher. Another club .did 'likewise. The re sult was that Manager McOuIre gave the matter a second thought and de cided that, inasmuch as Herger was desired by two other clubs, it would pay to keep him on Cleveland's pay roll. There Is little or no chance to get experienced pitchers. OLD TIMERS POORLY PAID. Baseball Start of Present Day Reaping Benefit of the Game's Success. Time was when Top Anson, tho old time manager and first baseman of the Chicago Nationals, was tho hlgh '"t salaried player in the business. rl was the Lajolc, Cobb und Wag nor "f the old days, but the salary he commanded, while considered, fancy Indeed by the club owners and players f those times, did not comparo with the $10.0(10 now paid tho three big stars "f the national game. Anson's stipend was $3,000 n ca "". Kelly nnd the other top notchers w,re glad to play Tor $1,400 to $1. M. whllo the large majority of the then baseball family were content with 1M0 and $1,000. Compared with today those salar '" looked like mcro pittances. Chris ty Mathewson. of tho Olants, gets "'methlng liko $10,000 per year. No b,,ly knows how much Hans Wag received but It Is in tho neighbor 1im ,,f $i2,ooo. Ty Cobb Is reputed to get around S7.r.O0) p,.r gpnson nnd Nap Lnjolo of Cleveland draws down about $9,000. Th magnates certainly have made m""fy. but they have been generous lth the men who draw the crowds by thclr g-.od playing. HUGH JENNINGS TO WED. Roranton. Pn., July 7. No matter hether the Detroit Tigers win the P'tinnnt or not. Manager Hugh Am broe Jennings will win a bride. Hugh "l be married some time In the nu 'wmn t(l mim AR'noa o'Herllo of Scrnn ,0. Roth Jennings nnd Miss O'Rcrlle ,r residents of Fernnton nnd In tho irxmpiiiR or neranton ana in me.py Prm - 'mer Jennings breaks the monotony prospective brhlec at a aaiw, GREAT MANAGERS HAVE OWN STYLES SIX MOST SUCCESSFUL BASE BALL BOSSES HAVE DIFFER ENT SCHEMES FOR GETTING RESULTS lMlTerenccs In tho disposition of the most successful baseball managers aro very marked. Some are most retiring, while others want to be in the lime light constantly. Frank Chance of the Chicago Cubs Is naturally a very quirt man. It is not his custom to be much on the coaching lines during a game, lie pre fers the comparative quiet afforded by the players' bench, und as a general thing allows his players to do most of the coaching. He directs his plans of battle from the bench. While his team Is at bat and even when playing his position of llrst base, he con tents himself with mere warnings to his pitc hers, who appear to bo "go ing up." The Cubs' leader Is an easy m in for umpires to get along with, und that la one reason why he is so seldom out of games. Chance never "calls" his players on the Held. What he has to say to them In the way of criticism Is done out of the specta tors' sight, and by so doing ho does not hurt u man's feelings. Hut Chance can cut loose some hot talk when he Is pushed. He has a team that Is as nearly a perfect baseball machine as was ever welded together, and he has It so well under control that it runs Itself. Every player apparently knows by intuition just what to do at the right time. Fred Clarke of the Pirates Is an other manager who Is of a retiring na ture naturally, but he will kick, and kick hard, when he thinks his team is getting the worst of It. He frequently runs In from left field to register nn nhloctlnn. nnd does not hesitate to order a player out of a game with some show of harshness. When mat ters are going along smoothly, though. Clarke is the easiest going fellow Im nglnable. ' He Is very reticent, how ever, when talking about himself or his players. John McOraw is n fiery spirited Irishman, nnd it is almost Impossible for him to control himself when things ui-4 . Kolug wroitg -Jlor will. JJck.. and tell his opinions of an umpire in tho most forcible manner. He directs his players on every play, simply because many of them are not the most heady plavers on earth and cannot be de pended on to carry plays through by their own volition. McOraw has been handicapped for several years In hav ing n rather mediocre team. That he i one r.f the best manauers In the business, possibly the best. Is shown by his keeping the Olants so high In the race year by year, against superior teams like the Cubs and Pirates. Hugh Jennings of the Detroit Tig ers Is n man who Is blessed with i personality that carries everything be fore It. He Is out on tho coaching lines constantly, not because he wants to be the most prominent figure In a game, but for the reason that he knows that It encourages his players and Imbues them with tho "good old pepper." Jennings Is Just as full of life and energy off the field as on and is a gentleman at all times. It Is because of his own Individual efforts Hint itm Detroit learn has won tho American league pennant three years li.md rtmnlmr. and has a chance of "copping" It again this season. Connie Mack of tho Athletics Is known as tho "human clam." Ho Is n bench manager and directs his play ers very quietly and unassumingly. Hut what Connie doesn't know about baseball from every nnglo Is not worth recording. He desires to be In the background nil the time. He wnnts his players to get all the credit that Is eolng nround. Oeoree Stnllinirs of the New York Americans Is so retiring that ho Is re presslve. almost oppressive In his re ticence. but ho has obtained good re suits and they count. These are six different types of tho six most successful managers In base ball. BENCHING RUN GETTERS. Periodically, managers of the dlf fercnt clubs In the Americnn league have n queer notion of benching the best run-getters on their team, i'e trolt fans complained about Manager Tnnlnira koonlnir Davy Jones on the bench In place of Mclntyre at a time when Jones was a prodigious run-pro dneer. Then In turn Manager Mc ifton. kent P.rowno rf il,n nimo when the hard hit ting outfielder was batting nt his best nmv Manaeer Stalling" enters lionrtllv Into the spirit of this bf,ncn Ing business by taking Lnporte out of the Highlanders' lineup, while tho i i,niiin,f nt a better r rem iiumu " ..-, clip than any member oi im ....... ti,.i rimse. nnd even nn more ' . ... ,n t)i premier first nppoi luuriy nnn himself.
