Frank is improving in his hitting and his fielding is leaving nothing to he desired. One catth"" off Shotton in Thursday's game was a gem. He traveled from deep center over into right and caught the ball as it was falling. Several other catches made by him during the present homo stay have been sparklers. And he is a fast man on the bases and, above all, an intelligent player. The Tiger combination as it now stands should win ball games. Detroit.-Although the Tigers were l beaten Z to by Washington. Thursday, the line-up Hughie Jennings put in the field was the best looking combination shown by the Tigers this year. Hughie experimented with Dyer and Jones at first base after I>resBen quit, and while both of the lads fielded well enough, they were weak with the bat. So Jennings decided to put Cobb on the initial bag for a trial. Ty has always been ambitious to play the infield and has practised handling infield grounders every day (or many seasons. Ha can handle (ha ball on Uio infield as well as many players who play on the Inner corrldon regularly. Then he is fast ind had all the other requisites needed by a first sacker. And, better otill, his presence gives the Tigers the benefit of his batting. In the meantime, while Cobb is BAD FIRE AT STROIVIE. Stromo.

For Nick, with his side-arm swing, was past master at tlie art ot catching his opponents' napping, and many ot them wore made to look foolish by his qtijck motion to first. ' It memory serves correctly, Altrock holds the record for catching men off first, i picking five in one game. ' ; Age has taken tlie speed from Nick's arm, but It has not taken the cunning from his brain, and he can still get the ball to first in time, Ty Cobb ten victim Ao his tricks. ,Ty reached first in the opening round, ot the game when Altrock made a play for Bush at second. Ty had played against the "clown" when ho was. In his prime. But a dozen years njay have caused the Tiger to forgot about the snap throw to first. So Cobb strayed oft the base, with his usual load. Nick sighted him out ot the corner of his eye and with easy grace throw the ball to Juclge. Cobb, barred from first base, started for second, where Lavan put the ball on him. Bush, who was on second when Cobb came to the bat, was also a ylc-tim of Altrock's cunning. Young had sacrificed Donlo to the middle sack, and when Cobb ,bounded to the pitcher. Bush evidently thought the play would be made at first, . But Nick slipped as ho turned to throw the ball !tnd lost the chance to get Ty.
