Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETTTnitlDf.K....DAILY.HBBALP Friday, July 14, GOSSIP OF THE BIG BUSH TEAMS SPORTS LOCAL NINE TO GO TO RAYMOND NOW BUT RACE BETWEEN TIGERS Season More Than Half Over and Philadelphia and Detroit Have Things Going Their Way -Big League Gossip by Murname 'Boston, July passed ai tho season half over. In the Amer can League the race has already se tied down to the Athletics and tl Detroit Tigers. Both teams gone over the route aud should pla Rood ball from now on. Mack has th finest machine since the best da) of the Chicago Cubs, while Jeuuiug must Improve his infield to have an eort of a chanced Chicago is bound to be heard froi this year, as they are hitting the ba playing hard for every game, wit Chief Comiskey anxious to. give hi Chicago patronage another wiunini team.. The New York Highlander! can depend upon a fine string o pitchers and a hard hitting lot o players likely to spurt at any time but never dangerous for the big prize i The Boston Red Sox have expert mentea with their infield until ,the> have lost much of their confidence and depend too much on their greal outfield. Chicago, New York ant Boston have a look-in for the secoiu berth. The Cleveland youngsters have shown lome grand, good baseball and next season. Charley Somera will have a team that all will tip their caps to. .Washington and St. Louis will have trouble in. landing in any better'pos- Ition than they hold at present. Me- Aleer has changed his team about so often that they have lost confidence. New men seldom, enthuse a ball club after the season-'is half over.

This "year two amWtious youngsters have rather-.Upset the dope by forcing their teams into the-running'and re- fusing absolutely to be shaken ,off. Roger' Bresnalian has done wonders TUth his light St Louis team, while has .shown that he-will not fighting position. I can hardly believe that St. Louis will much longer remain in the hunt, while the Quakers will force the old- clubs to plug away the .whole route to beat them out for ,one of the positions. The Quak- ers'are a game bunch'of players and in, Dooin they have a natural leader who can think as well as play has a nice way with his men. .Cincinnati has been a great disap- pointment to Clark .Griffith, who used up more gray matter than any mana- ger in the builness hoping to land a winner without the material, and Cincy is outr of the running this sea son. Brooklyn is the same old club, looking good ontf day and very bad the next, but always a very easy mark, for the New York Giants. O.ur owu at the old South End buttle grounds have landed the last position aud will remain there to the close. That is the one sure bet in baseball this year. Clubs come here to win every game played and when they fnil leave town like a lot of disgusted fishermen.. Tenney and Kling to furnish the gray matter, there is no reason why the Boston club cannot be stren- gthened, if the stockholders will go out and give up the cash for the best of the young players. Both-Frank Chalice and Fred Clarke niust bo given credit for making a line showing this season, where their jreat teams were breaking up and new men had to be gathered in to fill in vith. With Chance, Steinfeldt and 3vers out the club it left] .loe Tinker of the old stone wall nfield, one. ot" the greatest infielders he game ever saw. Then the great iub pitcher went wrong, until Chi- ago is playing practically a new earn. In taking Wagner away from short ;eld, tlie Pirates made it plain to all! hat the team was going by the cards. Playing first must be a huge ike for 'Wagner, but where Is. the layer to take his place at short? Yet Fred Clarke keeps right on de- Jlopiug .new men, and I look for the irates to be close up at the finish. In New York McGraw has practical- a young team, with perhaps the ex- eption of that great boxman, Christy athewson.
