Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta TTTF! LETIfltRTDflE DAILY HERALD Tuesday, 20, 1911 BIG FOOTBALL HATCH SEPT. 7TH J S FOR T S H -s FOR ONCE TY COBB HAS FAILED DATE Bennett Shield Game Now Definitely Chosen --T6 be Big Event At a well attended meeting of the football' execuiivn held last mght definite date lixed to play Hie lirst giimc ot the Shield sec- ies for tilt championship of llie 1'rc 'viiice -of .Alberta. lUilgan' Tallies will come down to I.ethbridge Saturday, Sept. 2ml to baltle with the I jlhbridgr eleven. Look forward to this game as being a hummer. Sot only -look forward to it, but also work hard to-win. This will not lie on easy task, as'Calgary has some splendid football material as shown by last. Saturday's game with the Corinthians. Hut this city has some equally good material and prac- tice must be systematic for the com- ing gan-.e. The following players are requested to turn out for practice to- night at 630 o'clock, at the Hall Park. It will be the first blast o( the coming liattU Mclntyre, Far- ris- Uannenuan, Alcoclf, Oiiswick, Brennan, Paterson, Moore, Glenn, Holberton, Oliver, C. Chis- wick, and Thompson. PIRATES MINUS HANS WAGNER MEANS PITTSBURG MINUS PEN- ANT, SAYS GRANTLAND RICE Pittsburg minus Wagner, comes fair- ly close to meaning Pittsburg minus ;i pennant, says Grantland Rice in the .New York Mail. And yet between the Cubs and Pirates we figure UIUL Pittsburg is to be more feared. For the Pirates still carry one of (he greatest pitching corps in either league, if'net tho best in the. game today. Three hard working vets in Adams, Camnitz, and Leifleld, flank- ed by three "brilliant youngsters in Steele, Ferry and O'Toole leave Clarke well fixed in this respect. But Wagner was the central figure of Pifcisburg attack as well as her defence- With the Flying Dutchman out of it'the Pirate infield slumps with ft crash. Pittsb.urg with Wagner leading the charge, has only cornered five out of 14 battles from Giant contenders. It isn't likely that Pittsburg without Wagner will enlarge this percentage to any noiable extent. Wagner was hurt in the game recently, having his ankle badly sprained.

The game was ft listless one, interest hav- ing largely died out since the pennant winners have been decided. Ford was on the mound for the Eskimos and pitched fairly gooil ball, but several bunched hits were, his undoing. lie pulled himself out of a tight box in the sixth when the bases tilted with none out. He fanned the next man at bat and then started a double play that retired the aide.

Tommy Leach, r.ov.- holding down Hans Wagner's job, says lie Is all at sea at that position, hut will try his bent. Tommy has not hung out there for 11 years. Yet Fred Clarke would rather take a chanco with the wee one man than ring in a less experienced player. Tommy's good noodle. Js pro- bably the thing that Clarke counts on most of all. LEACH NOW AT SHORT TOMMY LEACPC, "Tommy" Lencb, the veteran J'Hts- Inirg player, has now been assigned to piny the shortfield position since the. great Hans Wanner was incapacitated n result of a sprained ankle. Is a heady player, and will, no doubt, handle tlit position In his iisiml u'lcrer style. It' is said that catcher Charlie Sch- midt, ot the Tigers, has aaked Hughey Jennings to trade him off to 10010 other club.' Schmidt to play ut Cleveland and possibly some deal will be Fixed up with that for it SB whispered that owner Som- mers is willing to add him to hia staff. Jennings prefers one of the Nap pit- chers in exchange. Just who he will get no one can tell. According to Thomas McDermott, at- torney for the St. Paul baseball club, five of the best reasons in the world were advanced by Barney Droil'iss, owner of tlie Pittsburg club, why he bought Marty O'Toole and why he paid for the flame top. McDermott was prostnt when the sale for O'Toolo was made. "We were only talking about a said McDennotl, "when Dreyfuss said; 'There are five reasons why I want O'Toole and why I am willing to pay big for him: First I v I have the greatest baseball town in the second I liave toe greatest baseball park in the world v Field; third I have the great- est baseball manager in the world- Fred Clarke; fourth I have the great- est indlyidual ball player In the world Wagner; and fifth they tell roe O'Toole la going to he the great- est pitcher in the world and I want him. While the Cubs were playing in New York, president M.urphy was in- terviewed by one. of the Gotham scribes and had this to soy among other things; "Garry Herrmann wants to have Johnny Evers manage the Reds next year. It he can't get Evers, he'll take Tinker, Shc-okart or Shulte. HP. Beema to think a'Cub win make Cin- cinnati win. if we Iet> Tinker go wu 1 first get a seasoned shortitop in fill his place. U'B all up to Chance, however, for he 'is the best judge." .Toe Agier, the first basemen purchased by the Cubs, has reported to Chance.
