defeated the Philadelphia American
league champions, seven to one, in the
first game of the world's series.
Boston's terrific hitting drove Ben

from the box in the sixth inning. It
was the first time any Athletic pitcher
had been batted from the pitching
mound In a world's series game.
Wyckoff replaced Bender, and Lapp
replaced Catcher Schang.
Rudolph pitched brilliantly. The
Athletics were helpless before his slow
ball, eight striking out. Catcher Gowdy
was Boston's batting star, making a
double, triple and single in threw

Deal, who replaced Smith at third,
hit into three of the four double plays
the Athletics made.
Gowdy's double scored Whitted with
the game's first run in the second.

The Athletics' only run came in the

Boston's last run came in the eighth.

The Boston Braves, pennant win
ners, of the National league and the
Philadelphia Athletics, champions of
the American Jeagiie, clashed today in
the first battle for the world's baseball
championship of 1914.
Some 22,000 persons saw the opening
engagement of the seven game series.
Hundreds were turned away at the
The Bostons prepared to send their
slow ball box man, Dick Rudolph, to
the pitching emplacement to shell the
Athletics out of their home defenses.
The American leaguers groomed the
Indian, Bender, to pick off the Boston
invaders with his fast ball.
"Plow ball pitching is not relished
ed by the Mack artillery of batters,
and I guess it will be Rudolph for
the fray today," remarked Manager
George Stall ings. "Still I may switch
to James or Tyler. They are all good,
you know."
The vast reaches of Shibe Park

were choked to capacity long before
game today. Three and four times the
regular seat prices were offered for
tickets, and the demand at these fig
ures exceeded the supply.
The outfield stand, seating four
thousand persons, was thrown open
at 10:50 o'clock. It was filled within
a short time and the gates were closed.
The first in line for seats in this un
reserved section had waited over 40
hours for the gates to open. Several
women had stood in line since day
break. Hundreds were on temporary
stands erected on the roofs of houses
that overlook the back field walls.
The day was warm and humid and
one suited for fast base'oall. A hot
sun burned through the menacing
clouds and there was only a slight
threat of showers. The infield and
outer gardens were dry and hard.
Betting faored the Athletics at 2 to
1 and 9 to 5 when the two teams came
on the field for practice. The pre
liminary field play was snappy. The
work of the Boston player, Deal, who
substituted at third base for Smith,
who broke his ieg this week was keen
ly watched. He displayed no fielding
faults in warming up.
There was no lack of confidence on
either ski" as to the ultimate result.
"Wo will win sure." declared Manager
StaJIings. "My team is as good as the
Athletics any waj you look at it and
we are going to hand a lot of people
a big surprise." All Mack would say
was "we will be In there to win." The
Athletic players however confidently
predicted victory.
Baseball enthusiasts from many
stations in life are here anxious to
see the opening contest. Among the
visitors are men of great wealth and
prominence and others beat their way
here on freight cars or tredged many
miles on foot. The wealthy lovers of
the sport arrived in automobiles or
parlor cars and were able to pay the
high premiums demanded by ticket
speculators for choice seats. The other
visitors joined the th-rona; which stood
around the bleacher entrance all
nisrht patiently awaiting an opportun
ity topass through the turnstiles
w hen the gates opened at 10 o'clock.
Many boys were among those who
stayed up all night. They counted on
seeing the game ad getting back
their admission fee by selling choice
seats in the bleachers to late comers.
Thousands, disappointed In not se
curing the coveted tickets of admission
joined the throng at the grounds hop
ing to buy tickets at the last moment
at reasonable prices. Some secured
standing room admissions in the grand
stand, some were in the bleachers,
some were on neighboring house tops
and many thousands contented them
selves with watching the play on elec
tric score boards in other parts of the
The previous triumphs of the Ath
letics in world's series made the local
club a strong favorite among those
who based their choice on former per
formances. Brave supporters, how
ever, pointed to the manner in which
the Bostonians had climbed from last
place to the championship of the na
tional league and declared that the
confidence gained in that race would
enable them to defeat even the White
There was very little betting, which
was accounted for by the long odds
asked by those willing to take the
Boston end. What few wagers that
were laid were placed with the Ath
letics' favorites at 2 to 1 and S to 5.
The largest bet heard of so far was
one of $500.

here and there about the playing
field snapshotting the players in ac
tion. Down near the Boston's bench a
band played enlivening airs and
dodged foul balls.
The Boston Braves were the first
to take out on the diamond for field
practice. Their work was sharp and
brilliant. Maranville was all over the
midfield section, scooping grounders to
his right and left and making throws
from every position. The crowd ap
plauded frequently.
The Athletics went out for field
practice at 1:45. Connie Mack's $100,
000 infield was soon in action. Mc
lnnis had recovered from the injury
to his hand and was back on first
base. Bender did not make his ap
pearance on the field until the Ath
letics' were practicing, when he came
from under the stand and began to
warm up with Jack Lapp.
Rudolph and Whaling and Tyler
and Gowdy worked in front of the
Boston bench.
Bender and Schang were selected
as the battery for the Athletics. Ru
dolph and Gowdy were announced as
the battery for Boston.

was an out curve which cut the plate
for a strike. Moran went out on a
high foul to Mclnnis. Evers sent up
a high fly to Collins and walked back
to the bench. Connolly took a strike
and then fouled off the next one. Con

around the neck. No runs, no hits, no
Second half Rudolph put over a
strike on Murphy. Murphy sent a
short single to center and the crowd
started to cheer. It was the second
ball pitched. Oldring sacrificed Gow
dy to Schmidt. Gowdy nearly over
threw first base. Rudolph tried to
cut the corners of the plate on Col
lins and pitched three balls. His
fourth pitch was a strike. Collins
walked, and the crowd cried to Baker
for a hit. Baker fouled out to Schmidt
and Murphy was out trying for third
on the catch, Schmidt to Deal. It
was a pretty double play. No runs,
no hit, no errors.
"First half Bender pitched three
oalls and then put over two strikes
on Whitted. Whitted walked. Schmidt
filed out to Oldring. Whitted scored
on Gowdy's hard two bagger to the
left field stand. The Boston rooters
cheered to the echo. Gowdy scored
on Maranville's single over second.
Boston hits were sharp and clean. A
double play followed. Barry took
Deal's grounder and tossed to Collins
forcing Maranville. Collins then

no errors.
