Sportier Ne BENDER AFTER LEAGUE RECORD CONNIE MACK'S STAR HEAVER WOULD TAKE AWAY HONORS NOW CLAIMED BY "WILD ' BILL" The American league pitching rec ord may rest In new hands when the season uf 1910 la Completed. "Chief" Hender has 'shown a de elre to wrest the laurebj ,from "BlU" Donovan, now holder or the league record murk In percentage of victor lea, t Hender won twenty games and ! threo up to last Thursday. Ills per rentuge of 870 him seldom been equal ed by any pitcher at this stage of the year who has performed in more than ten games. To equal Donovan's rec ord, made In 1907. Hender must ' win Ave more games and lose one. A Big Task A herculean task confronts the big Indian, but at this distance It appears that the record la at his rnercy. He has seemed to Improve as the season a vanced, .If that were possible, and Is getting Just as perfect support from his teammates as at any time In the year. The Athletics have not shown the slightest sign of weakening under the strain of having In prospect series of games with the. National leaeue c-hamolons for the world's ehamDionBhtn. and, as every knows, the support accorded a pitcher I a prime faPlor In his success. i Oolng back to ancient history, Don ovan's record stands out like a beacon light on a dark night. Only once .before in the history of baseball was his rec ord surpassed. That was by Al Spaul dlng In 187D, when plUhlng for the Hoston club . He won fifty-six games and lost seven. That looks a trifle greater than the record of Unlay. Im agine the pitchers of today pitching sixty-three games. In 1908 K.1 Walsh of the American league pitched slxty 8ix games, getting a percentage of .727. Coomba Stands Second. Bender may not obtain as great a percentage as Spuuldlng,, but with an t ordinary amount of that luck and' skill ' which ho has possesed all season he stands an excellent chance of coming close to It. "Jack" Coonrfbs actually ranks sec ond In the list of pitcher, and seems in a fair way to hold that position. Up to and including Thursday, August 25. "Jack" has won twenty-one games and lost seven. liven if Walter Johnson leunnot get a team behind him strong enough to enable him to rank among the leading pitchers that lack of support cannot him from gathering In the strike-out record. Walter has fanned 231 -opposing batsmen so far this sea son, an average of seven and a frac tion per game. JOHNSON NEEDN'T WORRY Sporting Exports Claim Kaufman la No Match for Champ. New York. Sit. 9. Sporting ex perts who returned from rhlladedphla, reeentlv unite In declaring that JacK Johnson need not worry about his title. Neither Al Kaufman, wno goi j the decision of the majority of the1 spectators, nor Bill Lang, the so-call-h1 Australian marvel, havo any li cense to fight Johnson. On their showing at Philadelphia neither man would last much more than a round, if the opinion of the local experts can he relied on. Instead of having the slowness and division that In the post character ized his actions, Kaufman, the fight sharks say. seems to have added to it. He has to set himself before deliver ing a low, and, although In four of the six rounds of the fight ho outclass ed Lang, every time he seemed to have a chance to put over a knockout punch he thought about it until Iang covert d up or got out of danger. MAY WIN EVERY SERIES . New York, Sept. 9. By winning one of the Ixbor Day games with the Highlanders, the Philadelphia Athlet ics who have the American league pennant practically cinched, brought their season's victories over the High landers to twelve, thus Insuring the big end of the series. V It i not as certain as things not ac complished can be. that the Athletes will will every series. They have al ready won the series from New York. Cleveland, Chicago and St. Iul. with 12. 13 and 15 victories respectively; have won eleven each from Boston and Washington and ten from Detroit. An other victory over Boston and Wash ington and two over letrolt will give Mack's men a clean sweep In every series. Chicago, the probable winner In the National league, will hardly fare so well, as the Cubs have won but eight games from the Tlrates and must take four of the remaining flv e11"10" t0 get a majority of victories for the sea son. Chicago has already won the New York. Brooklyn and lKwton aer ie, and. needs hut one victory e icn over Philadelphia and St. Louis to make these series safe. MICHIGAN TUTOR HAS NEW PLAYS "HURRY UP" YOST BACK ON THE JO B SOLVES THIS YEAR'S PROBLEMS ON BIG CHESS BOARD They can pull the football codo to pieces with a pitchfork, erase the chalk lines and pull down the goal post but Fielding II. Yxt will mini up smiling and fully prepared to shoot holes In the oponents of Mtchl- j gan with a lot of stuff worked out dur- j lug the summer. When thev commenced to tinker with the playing code a couple of years ago Yost beat 'em all to it by school ing liU men along the Hues of tho new game. Last year he antWliated a number of the changes, so his veterans will ho pretty well prepared for what Is coming thl:4 autumn. Vost spent a part of tho summer with Dan 'Mictlulgau down in Tennes see. They devised an ingenious con trivance for developing team work and new formations. A hoard was prepared ruled off one Inch to ten yards. Men wore represented by screws, nil carefully prepared to scale. Kurh screw took up as much room re latively as a ISO-pound athlete would on tho actual field. Then Yost and McfJuigan played chess on the football Held, studied and noiulered the net results of which are u coniolete set of new formations stiiclly In keeping with the rules as intended. . W'Jien (McOulgan eouldn t attend Yost, played xolltalio. In eon sequence of this work Yost and Mich lr;an exnect to slip over a few new things before the other coaches have completed reading tho rule book. McOulgan. who Is coach fit Vander hilt, was In Detroit Monday. Mcf.ul- gan Is a product of the old tvhool wheri 240 nounds In the lir.e was greatly to be desired, yet he docs not lung for a return to the good old days." Toothall will bo faster this year than ever." 'MOulgan fays. "There will bo more open plays, of course, and the forward pass will be employed much much more frequently than heretofore. Itemovlng the penalty for incompleted forward pass takes away the chief ob jection to that play. "Defensive men who can run and Jump will prove a vast benefit. You cannot block tho man who poos out to take the forward pass, ro an op- lonent who can leap high and oanturo the ball wkll prove of vnst benefit on defense. In this way the basket ball element will enter more than It has In tho past. "You don't want to overlook the val ue of weight In the line. Of course the premium Is now placed on speed, but a good lineman weighing 100 equally as Kpeedy as a man weighing 163 Is Just 23 pounds more valuable." HARVARD MEN IN HARNESS Football Squad Contistt of No Lets Than Twenty Candidates (More than 20 candidates for the Harvard football eleven are quartered at Oceanvllle, "Me., where Coach Haughton Is experimenting with the new rules. The Yale players will be gin Hg'ht training next Saturday. WJth In three weeks the gridiron nenson will be under way and then a lino on the rules HmmUtee's work may bo ob tained. At this time It looks as If the quarterback has been ollmlnnted as nil Important " factor In team play. Inas much as any player receiving the tall direct from tho center rush can run with It. It will not lo surprising if some of the teams abolish the quarter hack altogether ond substtituto another man of henvler build In the toackflel.L QUAKERS START TRAINING Philadelphia. Sept.

There Is a , catcher named Black wood .In the Arkansas league. Proba bly called Kbony for short. Comlskcy wanted to take back his old pitcher, Harry Suter. The lots, however, decided against him. Tommy I '.urns ha s signed to pi ly la crosse with Vancouver. He gets $1,000 per game and will take part only In the bit,- contests. Pittsburg and Boston are making a fight over Pitcher McTlguc of the Kankakee team. The matter will be referred to the national commission. Catcher Easterly of the Naps says that he would rather go back to ine minors than to keep on catching, -so he has been made over Into an out fielder by 'Manager Jim McO.ulrc. Paddy Livingstone of the Athletics says that l'.uoo .vjurquurti is ""i as any pitcher In the game at the present time. Evidently Johnny Mc Oraw does not think po, as ho uses him very little. ' Catcher Alnsworth of the Senators Is touted by the Washington scribes as a wonder. Tho new man is filling a big hole in the team Just now on ac count of the crippled condition of Charles Street. Land, catcher for the Cleveland Naps, was born on the day that (Jro ver Cleveland was Inaugurated pres ident. His name Is drover Cleveland Land. It Is very proper also that he should be with the Clevelands. There will be two Zlmmermans, both Inflelders, In the National league next season. The ono Just drafted by the Giants has been in the business longer than the ono who has been with the Cubs three seasons. Umplro Thomas Hanley, who has been umpiring In the Blue Grass league, has quit the Job and gone to work In a mill. After the uproar and excitement of tho Blue Grass a mill must seem like a quiet haven. Johnson of the Washington Sena tors mny establish a new strike-out record up the rate he Is going nt now until the end of the season. There have been few games all season when he has not struck seven or more bat ters. Kay Is to get nnother show, the Athletics having drafted him. Poor Kay Is the hardluek kid. Ho enn hit 'cm hard as hard as anyone In the big leagues, but fields like n fried egg. Worth carrying as a pinch hitter, anyhow. Johnny McGraw figures that his team w ill be HO per cent stronger next season, for tho team will then under stand each other be;ter. If he gets mother tatcher like Bresnahan he can tack on another GO per cent Philadelphia Star. Covaleskle and Klawltter, both for mer National leaguers, engaged In a fight In the clubhouse nt Birmingham the other day, and after ten minutes rtrenuous milling the bout was called a draw. Both men were bruised and scratched up. Covaleskle had been .. t ! Seek Post Season the game would ho the most apectacu- lar ever staged should the plan he carried out. The team or castons wouici inciuue the following player who are now starred with other teams: t'riger and Donohue, catchers; ?y Morgan. 'y Young, Nick Alt rock and mm STOKE MASitSS THE ART OF THROWING For years you have heard it said that George .Stone, the 'Browns' clever outfielder, who led tin leanue In bat- ling In 1907. can't thiow. Well, George never did throw very well. His throws wore never very long, overly fast, or accurate enough to win any nu d:la lor accuracy. Everyone around the cir cuit had Just taken it for granted that .Stone couldn't throw, and the players had often leniarked that It was a fclunnc such a rood all-around mar. had to be hnndieaped by a weak arm. But. after several years' n -. vice at St. Iouis, Stono woke up the oilier day In Boston and Hawed everyone that he could Ih'.ir.v m well as tlu average outlleldei. Stone had always appeared to push the ball. It traveled slowly, and If It bounced beside a man trying to score from third, the "base runner was apt to beat It to the plate. After making a "push" throw, a Tied Sox player tried to seme from third on a fly that was fairly long. Stone didn't push the ball that time. He drew his arm way 'hack and let the ball go after a long swing. Tho ftall traveled on a line straight Into Kllllfer's hands, and the youthful Brown catcher was so surprised to get the ball in that man ner that he almost missed tagging tho runner. "llow under the Ron Md you do It?" everyone asked Stone. "(m. I-JiMt got mad thinking how rotten that other throw was," said Stone. Now Stone Is expected to maxe his throws irom left field reach to the plate In handy fashion. pitching t Klawltter In practice, and crossed him on a slow one. Klawltter got mad and threw his glove In the big Polo's face. This started the trouble. Leever of Pittsburg has n batting average of .013 llel with Knetzer oi Brooklyn. Ed Reulback of Chicago has roUted Jack Pflester of his honors as lowly batsman, Boulback nverages .of.2. Pflester, mighty swinger of the willow, Is marked .107. Charley Murphy of tho Cubs says that he wants a city championship flag from the national commission as a reward for the Cubs beating the Sox last fall. The players have all been given medals, but the club has received no recognition as yet. CANTILLON LEFT HERITAGE Joe Cantlllon's regime at the head of the Washington tenm was not an artistic auceesn, nnd yet the princely salary he drew from the club was well earmd, for he left something nt tho national capital which roukl not have been bought for the money paid him. Johnson, Milan and iStreet are worth more than Cantillon ('row In salary during bis three years In Warhlngton. If they were placed on the market tomorrow this trio of players would undoubtedly bring 40.000 or $50,000 and they would b well worth It to any hall club.
