McManus Commy's Big Hunch Came in 1906 - , -�- -'>- How Nick Came to Pitch Opener (By Ned Egan) Getting away fro7n the actual biiah Btutt for tho inomont 1 am wondering If tho baseball tans of Chicago ever heard about how it camo that Nick Altrock, groat southpaw pltcber and comedian, camo to bo selected to pilch Uio first game of tho world's series In 150G botwocn the Wiito So.x and the Cubs. This Is a atory that Frank Isbell, , ____......_......_____ ____ then with the .White Sox team do-: prised Jones, who didnU have tho Ughte in telling,'and as It Is a corHer J southpaw In.mlnd at all tor that gamo. could only get a crack at 'em." And Nick passed along- Comiskey sent down to the cir.b-houao for Klclder Jones. He seldom conferred witli his manager and.Jonos was rurprlsed at the summons. Hence lio went into the office to see the boss wonderingly. "Pitch Nick today," ordered Comls key in that deep voice of his. Nick, Nick Who?" said the sur- to my way of thinking, I am going to let the Chicago tans in on it. It Is Isbfcll's yarn, but it is too good to koep, so I'll give full credit tor it.  Sees Men as They Enter The White Sox were in tho old park at Thirty-ninth street at (he time, and during the morning ot the o))oniug day ot the series, Clinrley ' Comiskey was at tho park early, looking things over. He sat near a window, that- all of �the players passed as tliey entered tlio park tor the morn-Ine's limbering up, and Comiskey greeted each of thera as they came by. Tho I "Old Roman" had a stereotyped form of conversation tor \each of them. He was more interested In the pitchers than in any of tho other players. "Good morning Ed," he said to Walali as tho giant loomed up. "Good morning Mr. Comiskey," was the answer. - "How are you fooling today, Ed?" was the next one. . "Well. 1 guess I'll be all right," tho reply came. "I've got a little bit of a kink in here," working his flhoulder vigorously, "but I think I can warm out of that all right." ' Owens Had a Bad NIgdt Next . came Frank "Vpsilantl" Owens, and the usual greetings followed, "And how are you feeling, Frank?" Comiskey inquired. "Pretty fair, considering .the restless n.ight I had," was the reply. "I didn't sleep any too. well. . X think ray stomach ip out of order." "nqc" White was the next pHcher to appear. , : . "How are yIuclc3^.....Nick 'Altpofek; " 3Ua hat cooked ;0,y�|r',on one..Blde ot his bead ;an^, �tUo uswal gang of kids; fol-Jowlng/Wm aljong.j, " "G'ood'morning. Nick," (for him. ,;"Good, inornlng, Comanche," roared , Nick back.'at lilm, this boing what J>itlck always called tho owner ot the team. "How. do you feel today. Nick?'! ' "Oro^t; never was better in my IJfOi" was tho retort. "Sure to beat lir-U out ot that gang today If I Pitches and Wins Game "Altrock, of course," replied Comls-liey. "I never interfere with you, but this is my wish." "Are you crazy?" asked Jones, looking closely at "Comriflr." "Pelnse do as I say," returned Co miskoy, ending tho conversation. Jones was firmly convinced that Comiakey's sanity should be the sub Ject of an inquiry. But Nick pitched that aiftemoon and the White Sox beat the Cubs 2 to 1. Will Likely Box ten Rounds Here on Wednesday, March 13 Negotiations are practically completed for bringing Clonle Tait, Canadian lightweight cham-' plon and Ncal Allison, the rising young mItt-artist of Waterloo, Iowa, together here on March 13th, a week from Wednesday. .Definite word should be recelvtl . today that the date 'a.nd terms are satisfactory.

Other baseljall critics have said this and that, and there hasn't been a bouquet in tho whole wave ot comment. A Wise Move But a well-ver.iecl baseball man who knows practically about tho remarked recently (hat Mack pulled the wisest stuff ihat has been pulled all winter. Wiiy? Well, hero are a tew reasons: In the first place, the Athletics have been unpopular in i^hilly ever since they started to decline. They liavo not drawn ifllo.^ and Mack has not made any money at home.  In the second-place, several of the stars M'ack sold were dissatisfied with conditions and demanded much larger salaries than he could rightly afford to pay. Lest Players by Draft Again-tho Mackmen lost seven or eight players to the various .branches of the service, and Mack saw etghtli place staring him In the face this year with little or no chance to finish a, bit higher. Mack got to figuring, very likely, that he would do well to get rid of his dissatisfied players while he could command a big ma/ket price for them. He saw a chance to clean up, in one deal, practically twice as much money as he stood to lose on the season. With no vent to pay at Shlbe park, overhead expenses small and the chance to hold a young ball club to salaries averaging $3000, Mack saw a chance to make some money on the year througli player sales and look it. , Would Not Have Been Winner Even with tho stars ho disposed of Mack could not liave built up a winner. Baseball men in general agree to this. And it some other teams in the American league have good years he stands a chance to make a little dough on tho road. Figuring that he would lose money at home. Mack probably had a hunch that he could break nearly oven on tho season's business and have what he got tor his stars In reserve. Should he break even this year he will have lint trusty $60,000 intact. Not a bad year, what?
