Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 8, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta r*AGE SIX THE LETHBRIBGE _____.. I DAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, 1914 BRITISH ATHLETES SAIL FOR STATES BOSTCN RED SOX WELL HANDLED WOULD GIVE ATHLETICS HOT GO Former World's Champions Haven't Much Ballast at Head of Club-Manager Carrigan Little Better Than O'Day-Infield Not. as Strong as Outheld HOLDING DOWN PESTIFEROUS JOB (By Hugh S. FuUorton). Hot Springs, Atk., April 3.~Thpie atp a dozen men in America who c-oii!ii take the is roprf^-seated in ihe trainiiiL; camp ot liic Boston Jicii Sox ami mali.e a cham-piousliip team from it. The materia! is tliere ; ra.itcrial eiioiiph to give CoRnie 31ack the battle oi his life for the highest honors oi the American League. Logically the I'eJ Sox should be a close secoml choice in the .Vnirrican League race. R^ealh' tliey ought not to be tigured seriously at all. Why ? There are two whys. nin and Carrigan. Laiinin, the new owner, is a grand fellow, game, earnest, w'illing-but he does not know �basetjall. Carrigan is a grand ieilow, a grand ball player and, with one exception (O'Day), iie is the least etfi-ciMt manager in the nxajor leagues. ; Is that too strong ? \ Mechanically the team is all right. It has suffered two hard blows. \ Woods' appendicitis has crippled the j pitching sta5 just when it was threat-| ening to become the best in the cir- ; cuit. Of course, they claim Smoky; .Joe will be as good as ever, but he | vvill not. He will be able to pitch, ' but an operation lite that sets a fellow back a year, anyhow. V.'agner | is suffering from rheumatism and is j badly crippled up by it. i The catching stafi-Cady, Corigan, | Nunamachet and Thomas - is as . stT-ong cs any in the country, well 1 iortified in every way. The outfield is the class of the league, -with Sptaker, Hooper and Lewis in excel- i leDt condition and Henriksen as a sub. The infield looks a bit wabbly. Engle is a bad first baseman. Jan-vrfn is not good enough to drive Engle off the base. Yerkes is steady, re-Icable and has a punch. Wagner is a world beater, when in shape, but a world beater with rheumatism cannot do mueji. The Red Sox ate fortunate in having grafobed Scott oi St. Paul. Gardner has developed into a whale of a third baseman. 01 the newcomers Cooney, 3 youngster, shows a lot of promise, Walsh from Worcester, is i unripe, and Wilson from Lynn, probably will drop back quickly. ' Hay Collins is in the best form he has he?n in his career, steadier and better and ready righc now. He is a great pilt-her. Beiiient i.s good. Leonard is very promising, but has a lot oi faults. Foster hardly will do, al- j tho'.igii he shown a Hash . this spring. Thi' new material does not appear ! ! to help the case nnu-l;. KadloiTi from � !^lanistee, /Ceisler, Coombe, Kcllv xu;. 'I'olson are the tryouts. ! ' J-iostou should not worry. Slahl ^ ' Won a pennant with a teain no better ; �' than this one, an-d Carrigan certainly : is an improvement upon Stahl as a ' manager if you want to figure it that; v.av. NOT SINCE 1902 The major league player ablo to manufacture six hits in a game scorns to be, like the dodo extinct. Athletes, season after season, come through with five hits in a game, but getting six safeties seems to be an impossibility. The last major leaguer to secure half a dozen hits in one game was Jimmy Williams, and he turned the trick August 25. 1S02, when he %vas one of the orphaned Baltimores, in a contest with the Chicago White Sox, tor whom Clark Griffith and Duuimy Leitner were pitching. Southampton, England. April 8,-The relay team from Oxford TJnlvorslty, whose members are to participate in the Inter-coHegiate 'our-mlle relay race at Philadelphia on April 35, left for New York today ou tho Olympic. The veBsel 1b due In New YorK on April IS. Tho team Is composed of Arnold T.S. JacUson, president of the Oxford University Athletic association, who won tho mllo race at the Olympic Oames; D. N, Oaussen, G. Sproule, an AuBtvalian, and Morari S. Taber, a Rhodes scholar from Provldeuce, R.I., who is already In America. SHAMROCKS LOOK GOOD The Shamrock Football dub held I an enthusiastic meeting in tl�e new Wesley Hall last evening, when a lot of Important preliminary business was transacted. W. Haffern was nl-ectei\ before receiving his pilot's certificate. Deane, acting against the advice ot Ilia inatructors, ascended to a height of 1200 feet. He then attempted a sharp spiral descent, during which he lost control of ht� aeroplane. Clarke Griffith three years ago was ousted as manager of the Clacianati Reds. Hank O'Day succeeded Griffith as manager of the Reds, placed the team nearer Uie coveted pennant than the Reds have been for years, and theu was canned in favor of Joe Tittker. Joe Tinker lasted tlie same length of time that Hank O'Da.v did, and this season we s6e another new pilot trylag out his luck on the job that has proven fatal. Chas. Henog is tihe man at the head of the Reds this year. Will he make the sra4e? He is up atalnat the hardest proposition In the two leagues In ti-j-ing to run a olub stKce�8fuliy and conduct it in accordance with ideas of the owners of the chib wlUial. Herzog is a former New York Giant and so far has shown rare ability !� handling his men at the training camp. COBB'S SHOULDERS ABNORMALLY LARGE Gtflfport, Miss., April 7.-The swinging of three bats during the baseball seasons-for many years has developed Ty Cobb's shoulders so that from a mere stripling he has grown to be a man with such big arms and shoulders that his tailors find him to be a very hard matt to fit. Cobb has a very big measurenfient tor his shoulders and a very small one for his waist In spite of the fact that he appears to be a normally built man, he is bard for a tailor to handle. One would;tihink that a suit could be made for ' a model of Ty Cobb's size that would fit Cobb exactly, but atKh is not Uie case. .flT AMERICAN WINS London, Ajwil 8.-Walter Kinsella of New York, the profe�aional court tennis iilayer, today beat Eustace H. MllM, the {Ebclish amateur, by three straight sets in a match at Queen'a club. SMITH A0AIN9T SMITH Jeff Smith, the hard-hUtlOK middleweight from Bayonne. NJ., who haa 'bMD in Curope fighting well during the last few months, baa been matched to fight Dave Smith, the Auitra-llan middleweight, who was knocked out bf Eddie MoOoortT, in twenty roimds iu Australia, on April lU. LOOK HERE USE SOW TO SUPPRESS RACES Norfolk, Va., April 8.-State militiamen wore held In readiness today by Govettnor Stewart to suppress the race meet at Jamestown, If Attorney-General Pollard should call for their aid. Fifteen men charged with being bookmalcerH, arrested yesterday iu a spectacular raid on tho track, wore reloosod on bail for trial later today. CLASS TO JACK DILLON That Jack Dillon cannot only heat any middleweight In the country, but any of the White Hopes, is tho opinion of Izzy Brill, discoverer ot the Hoosier "Bearcat," who is matched to meet Battling Levlnsky at Butte, Mont., on April It, for the light-heavyweight title. Brill declares that Dillou can still make the middleivelglit limit, and that Uie Hoosier fighter should be recognized as the lo8-pound champion from the fact that he haa beaten all the men In that division with tho exception of a few who are contenders for the title, and tho tew Iz7,y asserts are Mikej Gibbons and Jimmy Clabby, both of whom he says have on numerous occasions declined Dillon's game. Dillon's style of milling offsets all cleverness. His aggressive and his wonderful hitting powers would surely mean defeat for either Clubby or Gibbons, should they meet, and before these men can Ije recognized as the champions in their class they will have to beat Dillon, aays Brill. Brill believes that Jack could beat both Clabby and Gibbons in ten rounds each in the same night, and he claims that Jack wotild be glad to take both of them on for a battle and agree to stop them In twenty rounds.
