Kid Nichols was Boston's tiinger, while for the Orioles, Jofie Corbeh, Jerry Nops, Bill Hoffer, and -Morris Amole occupied the slab. Eleven solid raps, five of them dou- bles, netted the Bostons nine runs in the seventh innings, and won for them championship of 1897. To this day the enthusiasts of the Monumen- tal City, unlike those of other places, speak of the unlucky seventhh. The fourth National league com- bination to win three banners in a row was Pittsburg. The Pirates, commanded by Fred Clarke, topped the list in 1901. 1902 and 1903. The next year they, fell off badly, drop- ping to fourth position. Ahead of r.cm were the Giants, the Cubs anri the Reds. Pittsburgh 130-1 record] was .569, that of the pennant winning New York club .693. Last year the Cubs, "with Frank kc Frederick Char.tion Cbrke and Frank Leroy Chance. Each one of these-men was commander of a club that finished in front three years in succession.

Chance directing them, had the op-j portunity to become four-time win ners, and might have done so had i; rot been for Johnny Kling joining tlv hold-out bridgade.

The pacemakers of 1S94, 1S95 and 1S96 were the Baltimore Orioles, one of whom was Hughey Jennings, dis- turber of! baseball records. In 1907 the Bostons wrested the champion- shi title from the Birdlets..who made a. gallant effort to enter the ranks of the four-time winners. The. Mary- landers failed to do so, however, and when the final returns were all in the Boston team's average of victories was .705 and Baltimore .693. The 1897 destination of the pennant hinged on the result of the final sen ies played in Baltimore between the Orioles and the Beaneaters. When this set of games started on Friday, September 24, the Birdlets were on the top rung of the championship lad- der, though their advantage in the percentage column was only one point The first game between'the rivals for the lead resulted in a Boston victory by a score of 6 to i, Charley (Kid) Nichols pitching against Joe Corbett and Arlington Pound. On Satur- day, September 25, the tables were turned, the Hanlonites, with Bill Hof- .fer in the rifle pit, trimming the tribe of Selee. 6 to 3. Fred Mobedanz was Boston's gunner. The Bay Staters captured the'de- ciding game of the series, played on Monday, September 27, by a score of 'CHESTY" GETS AFTER LAST JfEAR'S MEN "Chesty" Cox, the new manager of ie Lethbridge ball team for 1910 is-' i busy.'
