Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta fiAGESIX  THE LETHUHIUUIS DAIL.T HERALU FRIDAY, JULY 5,1918 "BRINGING UP FATHER' By G. Mc Manus BABE RUTH GOES TO THE SHIPYARDS Hard-Hitting Pitcher of Red Sox Takes French Leave and Causes Trouble Philadelphia, July 5.-George "Babe" Ruth, hardhitting cnitfielder of the EoBton Rt?4 Sox, has joined the Dela- The Best White Cooks in the city are at the Silver Grill.

TheSilverGrill Cor. 4th Ave. A 5th St ware River Shipbuilding league, according to members of the club. It is stated the Boston managoment will apply for an Injunction to prevent Ruth playing with any other team than the Boston Red Sex. Boston players express the opinion that Ruth will rejoin the team. SERVICE STATION HENRY J. DENN Proprietor All Makes of Batteries Chargod and Repaired 311 7th Street 8. Phone �f6 f I Who Is Ruth? Who is this Babe Ruth of the American league who specializes in knocking the ball out of the lot? Pittsburg fans would like to know. "The big baboon" rival players and managers in the Ban Johnson circuit call him-never to his face, however, although once this epithet was hurled from the coaching lines and a near riot ensued. Babe Ruth always could hit 'em, hut until this season a smart pitcher would invariably fool him. Ruth is only a big kid. He was born in Baltimore 24 years ago and sold to the Boston Americans by Jack Dunn, Baltimore manager, on July 8, 191-I; the sale price was reported to have been $2700, which is probably correct, for that's all he was worth at the time. It was not until 1915 that .Ruth took his regular turn in the box for Boston. That season he won IS games and lost seven. He's Tjeen a winner with the Rod Sox ever since.  _ . � Ed Barrow, the latest manager of the Beaneaters. had no sooner taken hold of the club than he discovered that Ruth could hit like a fiend. "I'll just play this big fellow in the outfield when he isn't pitching," said Barrow, and he did. A product of the back lots of Baltimore. Ruth was picked up by Jack Dunn and developed almost over night. He is a veritable giant, 6 feet 2 inches, weighing 200 pounds. His arms are abnormally long and his shoulders are powerful. Ho is a left-hand hitter, and once he meets a ball squarely, ail you can see is some fielder running with his back to the crowd, unless there happens to be a fence in the way, in which case the ball goes aail-ing over the garden wall. \.

Chicago Star Slammed Ball Hard for Eight Years in American League New York,-'When Joe Jackson left the White Sox to become a shipbuilder, after being placed in Class lA of the army draft, ho surprised a good many patriotic fans. But no matter why Joe left the Sox so suddenly, the tact remains that as a ball player with a punch at the bat ho was always a bearcat In the major leagues. Tyrus Cobb hit only .240 in 40 games with Detroit his first year up. That was in 1905. Since that time Cobb has never been below the .300 mark in 11 years of healthy clubbing .it the craftiest pitching in the big leagues. And Cobb promises to go on and on. Yet with all of Cobb's fereat record, this Jackson person loomed up as a worthy rival for the great Georgian, for Jackson started at a .300 clip when he first broke in as a fielder with the Cleveland Indians back in 1010. and though he played but 20 games that season, having been called back from New Orleans by Philadelphia and traded to Cleveland for Briscoe Lord, he hammered the globule to the tune of .387. . . From .tlje .beginning of the season'of 1311 until August 21, 1915. Jackson' was a member of the Cleveland club, and the figures show that ho hit Uko a pile driver. His best batting average was piled up in 1911. when he finished the season's clubbing at a .408 clip, and the same year Cobb hit .420 and heat him out in the hottest race tor a batting championship that has ever been staged in the American league. Jeckson is a natural hitter and a consistent though not a flash? fielder. Ho is fast and he just naturally goes out and gels 'em without the show or the effort that makes the work ot many fielders look brilliant. His loss to the White Sox was a hard blow, but Jackson made the^blow a little harder to bear by leaving the club with the avowed Intention-of enlisting as a shipbuilder.
