I There is no doubt that the pitchini; was some better, for Cicotle ha.s not ] beeu so good j^s he was a year ago and tlie Yankees have been unalile lo help Mogridge to many victories, ' ffowever. the hitting is no better, tor ; i practically the same layout of hitters ; i has been doing the same punching I I and the averages are no more than j normal, in fact, some of the averages have suffered woeful sUimpB. But, these are the facts-three hit-less performances last spring, and one this year. If. as has been argued, the fans like free hitting contests, they have been well served during Has-. eOSH LEAGUERS OODINAGERS 1 New York, June 24.-When Dutcb | Leonard pitched .1. no-hit game against Detroit a few days ago, he accomplished something that was thrice' turnetl in to the records by the same ! time a year ago. On three different ; occasions, when weather conditions ' were tar less favorable, big league i pitchers a 'year ago vaulted itito the ; hall of fame with hitless victories, i Two of the efforts also were attended hy a lack of runs on the part of the hitless club. It was Eddie Cicottc. star of the world's championship White Sox, who stepped in against the St. Louis Hrowns in the first series of the year in St. Louis last spring and turned back the Fielder Jones aggregation with the minimum quantity of hits- none. .\nd a few days later along came iirnie Koob and accomplished the same thing, with the exception that Krnie got into an argument with the official scorer and almost, lost credit for the performance. Then George .Mogridge pitched his only real good game of the season when he went against the Boston Red Kox and set down that team without a hit. Whether this means that the pitch- CADDOCK ON POINTS.

Vancouvr, June 22.-President Brown, of the Vancouver baseball club to-day announced the sale of Outfielder Frank Willson to the Chicago White Sox. The price was not stated. Willson will rei)ort at the conclusion of the I'.C.I.L. season. C. Snyder and his nephew were murdered at the former's home at Grand Prairie and afterwards the liouse set on fire and the bodies cremated. There is no clue to tha- perpetrators of the deed but the provincial police are scouring the nearby country. New York. June 21.-Two bush leaguers have made .i^ood a.-; managers of big league baseball clubs within the last few years, and another is quite likely to win his spurs before the present season has become history. Clarence Rowland was accepted a long tinit' ago a.s a man of considerable brains, and proved it to everybody's satisfaction when he met and defeated John McOraw in the last world's series. .-Vnd now we come down to Hugo Bezdek, and not so very far down at that, for Bezdck the joke of Pittsburg's fans a year ago. has placed in the .National league race a baseball team that has caused no end of trouble for the leaders and has had aspirations to become the leagues leader. When it wasi'Vinnounced by Barney Droyfiis that Ihigo Bezdek has been signed to succeed Jimmy Callahan as manager of the Pirates, the baseball world pinched itself a couple of times and tried 10 turn over., Bezdek's appointment was even more astonishing than was the announcement by Clins. A. Comiskey that he had signed Clarence Rowland, for Bezdek never hiUl been a professional baseball leader, nor had he ever played professional baseball. He was simply a handloV of athletes, with more than ordinary knov.'ledge of conditioning his men. Jack Hendricks is sitting tight and working hard. He knows he has a better team than the averages indicate,'j and that, with fair luck he will have his men In the race before very long. BASEBAL RESULTS AMERICAN Won. Lost. P.C.

Washington, June 23.-Washington j bunched hits oft Perryyn two innings] defeated Piilladelphla Joe Wood's conversion into an outfielder and Itis splendid work bolh in the. field and at bat. bring,s to mind the fact that many of the game's leading outfielders and hitters started in profesatonal ball as hurlers. .Vs a rule every boy wants to be a pitcher, and many of them attempt to inalte good in the professional end of the game as hurler.^i. .Most of thein go back to the bush, but there have been a tew who were sent in other positions either by accident or thr-ough the far-slghti'duess of their managers. lohn .'ilcGraw has had most of these pltcher-outl'ieldcrs or pitcher-hitters. Roger Bresnahan came to him from Washington as a pitcher, but. was moved to the outfield for his hittingv His best work was done as catcher, but ho was fair In the outfield and also at second base; His infield experience was gained with JlcGraw's American league Balliuiore Orioles. !Mike Donlin and Cy Seymour were known as a pair of the best iiitchor thumper.s the Giants ever owned. But both pitched iu tho big leagues. Cy's wildncss detracted from his value as a hurler and Donlin never had much at the best, but how they could hit the ball. Benny Kauft was first heard of as a pitcher in West Virginia. Arthur Irwin picked Benny tip for the Yankees in inio. He saw Benny play in a dou'ble-heuder. pitching tho first game and catching the second. Giants' Ex-Pitchers. a first baseman and then an outfielder. Beals Becker, also' a former Giant, started his career as a tllnger witji Little Rock In (lie Southern Association. Harry Hooper, like Robertson, was a college pitcher, making a reputation with St. Mary's cnllegs In California. Hooper's great arm of today indicates what speed he niuat have had when he was a pitcher. Bakor and Veach. Jack Grauoy, for whom Joe Wood has been substituting, put in the best part of his minor league ,career as a pitcher. He failed in Cleveland and Columbus, but was ranked as a fair pitcher with /'ortland on the coast. He was converted lo an outfielder in 190S. Tommy C.rlftitli of tho Reds, put in four seasons as hurler without attracting attention. When he went to the outfield he was drafted the first year. Frank Baker, who third bases for Miller Hugglns in New Yoric, used to twirl lor Charley Herzog's team at Ridgely, JId. Every one knows tlmt George Sislur was nearly as good a pilclier as ho in a first sacker and beat Walter .lohnson his first year with the 'Browns. Roddy Wallace started as pitcher. So did Tommy LoacU, Joe Connolly, Harry Wolter, Bert Niohoff and many others. Bobby Veach, who generally leads the American league in hammering runs over tho plato, ciult the pitchers'' box for the outfield shortly before the Tigers bought him from Indianapolis.
