HiU Donovan, old Wild Bill" of the luilcyon days when Detroit was winning pennants in the .lolinsoti circuit, is beginning to see the glimmer of tho cruwn that'fits his head. Bill is just about to. roll into fame as coach of tho Detroit pitchers. And if he does he wiir�bsolutoly! be the first pitching coast who ever has, gained tame in any more than, passing remarks. Jennings Can't Judge Pitchers. Long ago it \vas noised over the land and accepted as truth that Hughio Jennings,, wlio runs the Detroit club, simply could not judge good pitching material and could, not develop those wijflx whom he came in contact as iTgers. The men who have become stars on the Detroit team have done so because the natural ability was there; they needed no help. Coach after coach has taken his little fling with the set of flingers supported by the Tigers, and, one and all, they have failed to accomplish tlie results necesfary. vNow -Bill Donovan is trying it-the Bill Donovan who pitched the .Tigers Into their pennants in the old days. Whether Bill will get results that will show at the,top of tho list remain^ to be seen. The going ivwill be hard, and a lot ot ball games must be won to make the Tigers champions ot the American league. Need Tight Pitching. It often has be,en remarked-quite truthttilly. too-that the Detroit Tigers needed 'oaly tight pitching to enable them to win pennants. If the Tigers had been'j^'olessed with that fortunate thing-^a ^ good pitching staff-th'ere Is nii "teiling how many pennants they would have corraled in the Aiuorican. league. They probably would have 'om in a sort ot exclusive fashion. With a lineuii reading from left to right: Ty Cobb, .Bobby Veach, Harry Heilman and all the famous sluggers who haye disported themselves in Frank Navin's uniform, and a pitching staff to hold the opposition down to a minimum of, runs,-the Tigers certainly would be referred to now as the greatest tfiatn that ever played baseball. REDS WOULD KEEP MATHEWSON Is Valuable At Home-Has Sold $150,000 Worth of Bonds. That the Cincinnati club will not favor tho plan of the soldiers to release .Matty from the leadership of the Reds In order that he may go to Europe in tho interest ot baseball is tho gist of an expression made by an official of tho Cincinnati club. "We are willing to bo as far as any one In a patriotic way," snid this officer of the club, "but snap judgment should not prevail in tho matter." "In the first place .Alatty has sold $150,000 worth of Liberty bonds since we entered tlic war antl ho has sub-[ scribed personally to the amount of 10 per cent, of all ha sold. He has made speeches in various sections in the' interest of patriotic movements and stands ready to do more. "It is a fact also that almost every American soldier in France knows baseball well enough to got enjoyment out of the game. !ly all means help the game over there, but there are easier ways in which it may tTo helped without causing as much inconvenience." SPORT NOTES. The Detroit Tigers have had more games postponed on account of unfavorable weather than any other club in the majors. ^ Oscar Stanage of the Tigers will bo out ot the game for a month as a result of tho injury to his right hand, sustained in the game botwoon Detroit and St. Louis recently. Bill Kuss, tho talles/c pitcher in captivity, who last acasim was bought by tho Pittsburg Pirates for $3,000, has been signed for tho'acason to deliver for the So.Tttle Clifb in the Pacific Coast International Xioague. Ty Cobb says that tho Tigers will 'finish first or second this year. He ndd.s that his team must boat out tho White Sox. One Way of Looking At It. From New Haven comes word that tlio Yale-Harvard boat race Is to bo reduced from four miles to two njllea which probably means that it w-ill take only half tho usual time for th� lilLs to boat the Crimson.- AMERICAN ASSOCIATION Louisville 5, St. Paul 2.
