Tip "Smoky" Joe's the Boy "Who'll trim them "I." said Joe Wood; "I'll trim 'era "I'll trim th-am Giants.'1 E. Phair, in the Chicago Ex- arainer. Outfielder Jack Murray, of the Giants, is a bright example of what pluck and determination will do in the face of adverse hostility. Murray is today one of the idols of the Polo grounds. He is by far the best cut- fielder on his team and one of Uio very most valuable men working for McGraw. At the beginning of the present season lied Jack was a one in the estimation cf the bugs. The enthusiasts riding his neck, rough-shod, crying lustily for ins scalp. And ail because the fiery'Cd right gardener luid fallen I down in the v.brld's series with the j Athletics. In the .lamentable world's series of last fall Murray was little wcrse than In fact, if the Here's a THs Speaker Hunch Tris Speaker, the contribution of" y or his the Lone Star State to the world's Giants had won out he v.-ouk> have baseball series of 19U', may prove the' Juic.ji.ive -Nemesis of the York Giants in i tiieir ambition to become the cham- j beoii accorded a big here. Bui defe; j v.-ns embitw.-ed hy the thonght that .Murray had failed to get a single hit the harder against the youngsters who were trying to break into his preserves. If jIcGraw had entertain- ed any idea of'sacrificing "Rc-d" the notion was soon lost. Murray proved one of the best men right from the start of the year. It is doubtful if the-re is any better thrower than Jack in organized base- ball. The American league has some Speaker and Lewis of the Red Sox have deadly arms one and all; Ty Cobb is possessed of a good wing, and so Is Joe Birmingham cf the Naps. Mrtybe some of these can return thc ball to the plate from a deep field as quickly as Red Jack, hut not one of them will make as many accurate pegs in 10 trials. His deadly accuracy has made Mur- ray the terror of ail opposing base runners. Kven fast men hesitate about going from first to third on a hit-and-run play if the necessary bin- gie goes into Murray's yard.
