LOONS NAP RUCKER IS NEARLY THROUGH Great Southpaw Having Trouble With His Arm This Year Anwiii: the momentous base ball happenings of Itlf and certainty no ear in the annalt of the diamond drama has furnished SO many frills us has the present eOSSOn ia very liable to be the passin:; of Nap Itucker. The great OOOfgtfaa Isn't yet ready to own up that he must hang his war tOOJS in the closet, and is making one last desperate attempt to cure himself of the thing that So greatly handicap pad him last season and this year has practically put him hots de combat. "Deltoid Bursitis1 is the medical name of the affliction which has Ruckcr on the hospital list. It is an affliction of the nerves of the deltoid MUSClSi brought on by constant strain. For the last two weeks Rucker has been undergoing an heroic baking pro cess in the hopes that the muscular contraction he is suffering with will be cured. "Nap" says, "The old soup bone seems tr i.e loosening up," but the doctor will not yd allow him t throw the hall. Be vera I times in the last two years "Nap's" arm. appar ently, came around into shape, but each time he suffered a recurrence of the trouble. t f an ideal build for a pit' her, an Idea disposition, both from a mana gerial as well as a player's standpoint the big BOUthpaW at his best was MM of the greatest figures In the gam The greatest batsmen in the National league feared him, and none could boast that he ever was able to Kucker's number. Kucker Is a star pitcher as a result of an applied accident. He began his baseball career on a semi-pro team in Alpharetta, and he would probably have remained there or thereabout had It not been for the accident which come to pass when he was. with Ait- guate, (la., in the South Atlautl league, In 1906, his first whole season among tic regular baseball folk. ne day he cut loose in a manner different from what he intended. He thought he hail made a wild pitch, and was the most surprised man on the grounds when, after rising about in fast, the ball suddenly shot to the earth, and was barely caught by the catcher, the batter Winging snnu three feet or moro above it. Most pitchers would have thoimht little about the incident, but Ittpker realised thSl in some way unknown to himself he had struck a new delivery and so set to work to tin.) out w' it he had done. In a few days he learned how the high drop w' n s thrown, but it was three months before he had con trol enough and confidence enough to spring it in a game. Having assured himself that he was master of the trick, he began to csh It rlht along, and to this day It is, perfected by his major lenvue experi ence, the most remarkable and decep tive delivery in baseball when It breaks right. Hucker'a other attributes as a pitcher would nive him n standing as a major leaguer, but It Is that drop. which he does not hesitate to use when the count is two and three and men are on bases, that lias caused the fans to rank him among the greatest left-handeTl baseball has ever known. In addition to his other merits. O. N. Rucker is one of the hardest and most srlllisUJ baseball workers ntid talkers extant. He lives and dreams baseball, is always willing to hear some nee thing or tell some new story. Ills willingness was well Illus trated last year, when he took part in 41 sanies for a total of i!60 Innings. (tucker's best year was Ittl, SrhSn he won 'lz and lost is. for a percentage of .6M, with a team that had ;i wln nhsg pel outage of .4::7.

It ie a gtTgngC thing in the boxing game that a single defeat frequently will change u man's entire career and transform him from a most promising lighting machine into a ring nonentity. It often hap pens that u single defeat will not change a man much, excepting for the better, making him train mote dili gently and flghi more carefully and despcrutely. Then again a single de feat Is apt to c rnpletely ruin u man's future and put him Into the pugilistic scrap heap for all time to eoggS, Take the case of Al Kaufman, of San l'ranclsoo, as an instance of how a Single defeat will completely upset a man's future and make of him an easy l tim of all comers after that. Ony the other, night out in San Fran cisco Kaufman, after running into his fifth knockout in less than three years, announced that he was through with the game and never again would don a pair of boxing gloves. And Al at one time was the bright shining star umong the hi; fellows and conshh red about as good material for the future us any thai we had. Indeed Barney clirard, the theatrical manager, after looking A I over and associating with him to learn his character, offered him a three-year contract ut $5n.(i0o a year. Al battle such men as (Jlrnrd saw fit and to work on a regular salary, Cirard to take the profits, ,r ull over Itd.tdl that he could secure. (if coarse it didn't work out the way Otrsrd ex pe. ted, but the IneldOIll merely goes to show to what heights Kaufman had goated in the estimation of many sup posedly good rifles of the ring. The one defeat that swept Kaufman into the discard, though It was not Known that it was as severe as that at the time, was administered to the good - looking San PYanctsco boy by Jim Ptynn In a ring at Kansas City, May fi, 1911. Kaufman had been mar rod but a .ilmrt time before that and was on his honeymoon at the time. Happening into Kansas City he wis hailed by ("as Welch and indtn Sd H take the Flynn match on short notice and while practically h;i otM of COft dition. ai belle rod Jim to be easy, haing dtspossd of him previously in nine rounds in Lot Angeles. Hut Pl nn never was ensy for any of them, and In this esse, helnjf in the finest condition, he proceeded to wear Kaufman d own. finally knocking him out completely in in rounds. In rapid succession Kaufman fell b- fore ai Falser, five rounds, lost a de cision to Charley Mliler In four, was knocke.l out by Luther McCarthy, two rpunds, Kid Kenenth hi eight and Tom McMahon in a few a mds The only bright spot In his record sinc Flynn gave him his disastrous def.it wee four-round decision orer Jack Lester. Which wasn't CttCh a whale of a performance. Knrly in his career Kaufman yvas badly overmatched when they stacked h!rn up axninst Jack u'Brler.. who cut him Into ribbons in 17 rounds. But Kaufman lived through that, and up to the time that he battled Flynn the second time hud v. hipped many a Rood second rater. Al is only 2" years old now and ought to be rlRht at his 1 st instead of announcing his retirement because of successive defeats. It's t 0 had. hut it cannot be helped.
