There are reared players manag- ing ball clubs who still love the span- gles, and, aictious to keep in the pub- lic eye. are conspicuous on the boys. Here is Plank, his eleventh straight year doing box work for the same dob. and the winning pitcher this season.-' Great lesson in how to take care of yourself in the career of tius young man. The Quakers were playing a smooth fielding game, but shy with the stick work, and the pitch- ers, outside of Plank, were not on edge. The Quakers acted as if they were stlil affected by the great strain of lasi season, and to my way of thinking will find the going rocky until about the middle of May, com- ing around with the warm weather and the knowledge that there are other clubs in the .American League ready to take advantage of their slumps. The King Pin of the Tigers Says His Bat is Not Illegal in Shape Connie Mack Is certainly a great philosopher. The loss of games didn't bother "him in the least. "We our trousbles now, and some other dobs was his comment while in Boston. Mack has the same men and the same brain power, and while cwo or three of his boys are slowing'" up they save their distance by deep, thinking. The team simply _ i nlays ball all the time, never overlook- nots that j "j ing a Dei and taking chances at the psoper time.

Col- lins. Clarke and Chance have done i Live Wires and Choice Selections One line point of Chance's management which the fans appreciate is that the games at the West Side Park ars called promptly on tihii, which is not the case in many places. The bell is rung live minutes 'before the advertised time, which gives plenty of leeway for the "umpires to muke the announce- ments and the teams to take the field. Especially at this time of the year it is an advantage to have the games over on time and before it begins to get. dark. You Can always count on a Chicago game being started right on time, and not five or ten minutes late. Charlie Dooin, manager Philadelphia, -will spring: something new-in maj- or Isazrae circles should any of his pitchers go back on him. The little red- topped manager has found a young woman pitcher, who he declares, can hold her own -with any of the latest of the major league pitching timber. He dis- covered her on back lots of Philadelphia's northside, where she was play- ing ball with her brothers and their friends and she was striking out the boys in Mathewson style. After much inquiry Dooin discovered that the young woman's name was Corolie Beale and that she resides with her parents at .VJ-13 North TbirLy- third street- She has been playing ball for the last five years and has ac- quired a throwing arm of which any man might be proud. As a tryout for the young woman, Dooin has arranged for her to, pitch a game next Saturday against the strong cine of the Belfield Country Club. GOTCH WRESTLE Chicago, May wrestling; fans may yet see Frank Gotch. cham- pion of the world, and George Hack- enschmidt, in a bout here Labor Day. In response to Gotch's demand for 000 for training in addi- tion to the guarantee, Jack Cur ley, manager of Hackenschmidt, has agreed to give up.that much of his share of the proceeds' to get Gotch to sign up.

Duffy also alleged that Cobb is able to fatten his batting average by the use of this stick. When Tyrus was told of the claims made by the White Cox manager he laughed. "The hickory Ty uses.is filled with groves toward the end. so the ball may be caught more cleanly in trying for base is Duffy's -charge. "Billy SuHivan objected to Cobb .using that bat while we were in Detroit. He .show- ed it to Umpire Perrine, and th eumpire overruled Billy's objectf-bus; and said the bat was all right." "There are no groves In my replies Cobb. "It's like any-other bat. When I get a new stick I take chewing tobacco and rub it over the business end_of the bat.. I like to have the end rough.
