OUTFIELDERS LEAD THE .ATTACK Are in Scranton. Pa., April !!'.-Tom Glb-kou. of St, Haul, Minn., last night won on points over Clay Turner, the ladtan boxer, the bout going the full taa rounds. the Heavy Artillerymen aaeball Offtnoivc. New York.- The outfielder is tke heavy artilleryman of baseball. Ha is the lad who ahoulderi the bnint of breaking down the fences and defences of the oppoeition. He is the ooe who must be fleet of foot m the field and on the bags, and he must pick tricky fly balls out of any old kind of a sky. In addition to this all an outfielder has to do Is to trap the short drives, pick the long ones oft the fences, hit like a pile-driver, run like a rv/in-six and throw farther and truer than I anybody eUe. Out of some sixty-odd outfielders I who earn their sinkers and coffee in the major leagues there are perhaps 16 or 20 who are good enough for any man's ball club. Rut there are among this number, outstanding stars. Every baseball fan. from the Hniall-est urchin to the oldest bleaclicrite, agrees that there is only one Ty Cobb, and that when you have said CoWi you have expressed the last word in outfielders. For 1:.' consecutive seasons Ty Cobb has hit better than M". He has always been a great fielder and base runner, and he has always ! had a strong throwing arm Rating the outfteld�rs for their value to a ball club means startijii; out with Cobb. Second among the gardeners is Tris tram Speaker, and no one will argue long over the selection of Tris as the runnerup. Speaker is the only player in bis league who ever ousted Cobb from the batting leadership since Ty budded into a star. Third place goes to Joe Jackson, consistently great as a hitter and a good, all around, seasoned player In every reipaet Fourth place In the rank, as we sen It. goes to Eddie Roush, a newfound Likewise tlie annual dues are In or der.
