Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta 7.7ft TICKING ALL STAR WESTERN CANADA LEAGUE BALL TEAM 'League Contains Many Star Players Who When Playing as a Team Would Prove a Hard Aggregation to Press Selection of of the Best Nine Available The Lethbridge Daily Herald, Monday, Ang, Page 5 (By W. J. F.. in the Winnipeg Free Press.) Seeing that the western papers are getting busy with their All Star West- ern Canada league teams, in which they do not fail to pass up many o the players from their own team when making the choice, a selection from ;this end of the circuit would not b out-of the way. Well, after watchin all the teams of the league work i: games on the River Park diamond and judging from their performance here, I would pick the following ai about the best that can be gotten to gether out of the material available in the league, and to hat in tie orde named. Schaefer, Saskatoon, right "field. Kruegeir, Winnipeg, second base. Clynes, ..Calgary, left field. .Smith, Ca3gary, third base. Beatty, Winnipeg, first base, Edmonton, short stop. Moose Jaw, centre field. Lethbridge, catcher. Pitchers: Collins, Winnipeg; Dellar, Edmonton; Heinrich, Brandon, and Skeels, Regina. Spare catcher, Cooper, Brandon. Paddock, Calgary. Of course there will be many differ fro'm my selection and every reason is welcome to his or her own thoughts, but, from watching the men work dur- ing the season's play the above bunch would make a pretty hoc proposition for any -B class organization. The players-are mostly experienced in all the finer points of the game, and have the natural ability to. do the right thing at- the right moment. Many will wonder why Schaefer ig chosen for right field. Well, this gem as about the fastest, boy in the league and his ability to reach first base would make him a valuable man to lead off. Krueger covers more ground ihan any other second baseman in the league and though he is not playing that position now it is his natural place. Besides being fast he is a good hitter, clouting over the 250 mark His ability to bunt makes him a val- uable man to go ,up second on the list. Clynes earns the left field position easily, as his batting and fielding is the best in the league.

There may be a difference of opinion regarding the first baseman position. Every team in the league is gifted with star custo- dians and nearly any one of the eight would fill the position acceptably. However, after watching Beatty per- form here there is not much mistake made in' putting him on the initial sack. He is batting, around the -275 his fielding, is all that could be desired. He has more speed than any other man covering the base in the league, which makes him a more dangerous man on account of his ability to go around the sacks so fast. Spencer is Good Spencer is easily -the best short stop in the league, not only as a fielder, "but as a hitter. He can always be re- lied upon to pole out a hit nearly ev- ery game. To Crocker of Moose Jaw, falls the centre field position. He is a beautiful fielder, has an iron arm, while he is slugging 'the ball over the mark just now, so that he would be hard to beat for that position. There is a lot of do.ubt as to the catchers, Taut the experience and hitting ability of Lynch of Lethbridge seems -to give him the benefit of the doubt. Cooper of Brandon, is a splendid backstop, while Stanley of Calgary is pretty Tiard to" beat, but he is only a fair hitter and a very slow base runner. There are many good pitchers but the selection made above would stand a lot of beating. Collins deserves a place from the fact that he has been beating pretty nearly every team that he flings against. Dellar is experienced and has the goods, while Heinrich fs the best of the southpaws. Skeels, :the Indian, has proven his metal. Del Pad- dock is a valuable man as a utility player being able to play pretty near- ly any position and also a good pinch hitter. .and Lang Sim mon and Carisch. Umpire, Chill.

BURNS IS PROUD FATHER The Former Heavyweight Champion Boasts of Fine Baby Girl Seattle, Aug. Burns, the former world's heavyweight cham- pion, is receiving the congratulations of all his friends today. He is the father of a bouncing- girl baby. Many of the fistic fans that have watched his career are much dis- appointed that 'the youngster is not a boy, ibut Tommy.seems well satisfied and is wearing the proud look of a I father. Mattapoisset, Mass., Aug. ball fans are jubilant today over the possibility that when they reach the golden shore, home runs and base hits may be among the attractions there. At least that is the idea of the Rev. Julian C. Tuthill, of the Con- gregational church here, who in a sermon declared that there was no reason apparently why the great na- tional game of America should not be found in some form or another in the world to come. He >said in .part: "Heaven is tout an evolution of this world. A Christian may love a ball game, and, loving it, remain a Christian. Why, then, is it not safe to prophesy that even the game of baseball will have its place in some spiritual form in IT WOULD PAY YOU TO PACK A TRUNK with nothing else but bate, balls, rackets, clubs, fishing tackle, etc.' to take along on the family vaca- tion.

Lezie has in all probability pitched his last game for Lethbridge, not because of a disabled doubtless it is rather of the fact that his contract with the Lethbridge club expires On the 15th of this month. When Lezie signed this season it was specified in his contract that he that grain he could resume his work as buyer for a firm in Glasgow, Mont., which commences activity about the middle of Phil, says the job is a good on-e and can't let baseball interfere with it. We need pitchers right' now ant! Lezie's loss will be extremely discour aging to the team.

Going back through pugilistic his- tory you can find many instances of fighters who depend wholly upon one particular punch delivered at the cru- cial moment. Sixty years ago Tom Hyer won the championship of Ameri- ca with straight hitting from the shoulders. He punched like a batter- ing ram with either hand, and in -that way he beat down the famo.us Yankee Sullivan, who was one of the trickiest fighters -ever toed the scratch. John L. Sullivan's best blow was a righthand swing for the point of the chin. He usually rushed in with the left hand to brush aside antago- nist's defense, and then followed with a terrific right. There wasn't much sci- ence in Sullivan's tactics, but he just bored in like a wild bull and beat his opponents down by main strength. How Mitchell Fought John L. A man who was ciever enough to avoid Sullivan's right hand generally had him guessing. Charley Mitchell having a correct line on John L.'s most effective smash successfully stood him off for 39 rounds, at tbe same time dodging and ducking the big fellow's sledgehammer swings with remarkable skill. Dominick McCaffrey also balked Sullivan's attack in this way for six rounds and Kilrain, with similar tac- tics, stayed 75 rounds. Corbett's science and agility made Sullivan hit nothing but air with his famous knocko.ut blow at New Orleans. In fact, Sullivan's lack of boxing skill in that memorable battle was the cause of his downfall. He had just one punch, the right swing for the jaw and Corbett knew how to avoid it. Cor- bett's best blow was a sharp, cutting left which he drove into the face with ;reat rapidity; but he did not have enough power behind it to inflict much One Snappy A snappy lefthand wallop was Jack Dempsey's mainstay. The way he me rushing sluggers with his left was wel worth seeing. Dempsey had a gooc right hand, too, and could do a lot ol damage with it, but in practically all of his important fights he used his left with effect. Joe Gans, former light- weight champion, had a great right- hand hook which made .him famous, but at that he was a wonderful two- handed fighter. This Incident showed what a close student of the manly art Joe Gans was. He was one of the quickest thinkers that ever stood in the ring. When Dal Hawkins, in their first encounter, put Gans down with a corking left-hand smash, it looked as if the Baltimore negro was out; but Gans, weak and dazed, got up at the count of "six" and worked the right hook the jaw for a clean knockout just as Haw- dns closed in to finish him. Another reat right hook put Hawkins away in the second round. Short Nearly all of Robert Fitzsimmons' victories were due to half arm jolts on the jaw or stomach at close quarters or in breakaways. He stopped Hall, Maher, Creedon, Sharkey and others in this manner before he met Corbett for the -world's championship at Carson City. Fitz made a study of Corbett and decided that the latter's stomach was a weak spot. The Cornishman was the inventor of the "left hand which he landed on Corbett's SCENE OF THE NEXT HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHT Chicago, Aug. the place where Jack Johnson first sprang into the championship lime- light, will probably be the scene of his nest encounter -with any one who seeks heavy-weight honors. The champion announced yesterday that In all probability he would head for the antipodes next summer, following his theatrical engagement In Europe. Jack said that there would be nothing doing in this country for some time, whereas he had a number of flatter- ing offers from Hugh. Mclntosh, pro- moter, and might close a deal when he gets.to London. Mclntosh is oh ids way to the Brit- ish metropolis at present, and will re- main there until Johnson arrives. Then he will unfold his plans for a fight in England or Australia. Just who his opponent may be is the last thing the title holder can think of, but he reiterates that if Langford wants a match all' he need do is to put up sufficient money. CRANBROOK WELCOMES VICTORIOUS BALL TEAM harm. He chopped Sullivan to pieces with those left hand jabs and also dropped the ancient Mitchell with with those left hand dropped the ancient them at Jacksonville. In his battles with Sharkey, Jeffries and McCoy, Cor- bett used the left for many cleancut points, but he never had these men in trouble and was simply a boxer, not a fighter. Corbett used his right, on the defense a greater part of the time, and whenever he landed a blow wkh rt there was little or no steam be- Vl-J L.. Cranbrook, B.

Before this Corbett had outboxed Fitz- simmons with remarkable ease. Ketchel's Best Wallop Ketchel's best 'blow is a lert swing, used in conjunction with a feiat and a shift. Ic was this wallop that knocked Johnson down in the lasl. round at Colraa and raised a lump on the negro's jaw in one cf the earlier rounds. His style is awkward, and a lack of science in point of self protec- ion is a fatal weakness. If Ketchel meets Langford he will be subjected to another severe test. Langford's most effective punches are delivered at close quarters. He is a hard hitter with either hand and has knocked out nu- merous pugilists wi-th jolts that have but a few inches to the jaw Langford has a left, which he can swing or hook as the occasion re- quires; but he depends often upon a right hand swing to the neck or jaw.
