It was an interesting article for the fans to read, but it did aot contain, facts. One' of the features >f the story xvas that Russell Ford, he York- 'American star fliuger, did lot possess a think factory. to be verv careful how they chuck it tc the bases after making a stop. There was some talk 'a year or so ago of having the spitter abolish ed. There .isn't a chance in the world of it ever being, done. In the first place, it would be impossible to prova that a twiner was "pitching it. Every twjrler dampens the. end of his stated that Ed Sweeney, Ford's bat- tery mate, was the brains of the cou- ple. Which is altogether wrong. Sweeney is a very wise catcher, one of the shrewdest in the business, hut he does not direct The big spit-ball heaver does all the signalling and Sweeney accepts anything his partner may desire to serve up. Collins goes on and tells many oth- i er weaknesses of great twirlers. And W ,19 40 j not in a single instance is he right His article has-earned him no friends, me.
