"Our Team Work Is Perfect. We Have the Best
Aggregation of Baseball Players Ever Gotten
Together," Asserts Leader of Boston
„. Jake Stabl, the Collage-bred Manager of the Boston Red Sox;
From a special photoghaph showing bow he looks today. ,
Especially Written tor the Times by the Manager of the Boston
Red Sox.
Tou ask me to write my Ideas about the world's series games
between the Red Sox and the Giants. I will in •■in by giving you
the reason why we won the American league pennant. The reason
First—Because every man on the Boston team was after it
from the stait.
Second—Because our team work Is perfect. No man is for
himself; every man is for the team, first, last and all the time.
Third—Because we have the best team in the American league,
and I think the best aggregation of baseball players ever gotten to
The fan may tblnk that having the best men, the rest Is easy,
but every baseball manager understands how far good fellowship
in a club will help toward making pennant winners.
I am fully in sympathy with every one of the boys and they
have always treated me like one of themselves. All through the
season our conferences have been heart-to-heart talks. Every one
of the men has not only given me the best service he could, but the
best service that he could give to any manager In the business.
Don't forget one thing. No one man on the Boston team won
the American league pennant. It was won by the Boston baseball
teaui. Of course, Joe Woods holds the record for pitching In the
American league, but if his support had not been as good as his
pitching he would not have established the splendid record he has.
Some people may say our outfield Is without a flaw and that we
shall depend upon Speaker, Hooper and Lewis to beat the Oiants.
Others may point to our batting averages when they discuss the
probability of winning the world's aeries, but I depend upon the
Red Sox's ability to PLAY BALL from the time the umpire calls
"Play" until the series ends.
Every man on the team has played his position not only with
credit, but with honor, and unieas something happens which we are
not expecting, every one of the 22 will be fit and ready for the game
of his life when we enter the world's series.
We shall go for the world's champion pennant with the same
determination and signal purpose with which we raptured the
American league pennant and If past perform mires count for any
thing, I am sure we will have two pennants Instead of one flying
over our club house next spring—at least, the Gianta will have to
go harder even than they have been going this year If they hope to
pull down the big streamer.

The showing of the Tacoma High school squad in the game
with Aberdeen Saturday was very disappointing to say the least.
That Tacoma was licked by a team which was expected to be due
for an unmerciful beating, takes the heart right out of the local
followers of the game. Aberdeen was outweighed ten pounds to
the man and was conceded little chance with the husky veterans
of the blue and gold. Tacoma men were exacted to put up a
great exhibition with the bitter taste of the Aberdeen games of two
years ago still in their nioutlu As it was Aberdeen played tiie
better game and ought to have won, even If their scores were
nearly all made on flukes, while Tacoma's were the result of
straight football.
The locals appeared off color
in many respects. In ths flret
place they were over-coafUetit.
It was not until the last Sufcrter
that they seemed to realize they
were being beaten. Coach Per
kins himself still-looked for vic
tory In the last quarter, but when
Aberdeen made the final touch
down on a fumble he turned to
the Aberdeen coach and said.
"Well, you've got ue now."
The added weight this year
seems to have taken out the dash
and fighting spirit which former
ly marked the play of the blue
and gold teams. The team did
not seem to play together; the
interference was not good and the
forwards, who were looked upon
as the strongest of the eleven,
were broken through time and
again to nail the Tacoma backs
before they could get started.
Horejs was a disappointment, not
playing to his usual standard.
"Dub" Coblentz played his usual
good game, but could not do much
in the kicking department. Two
new men in this year's line-up,
Espeland and Brazell, proved to
be among the best.

that she could play football in the

Where 50 men tackle properly

taking off a tackier; in other
words, acting as interference. It
is surprising how few varsity
players, otherwise good men,
know how to block.
Lots of players believe they
should not put themselves out of
