WITH THE GREAT LEADERS IN BASEBALL Some of the Men Who Have Become Famous in Tandom In flic Philadelphia Ledger there is an article on some famous' baseball managers that will be of particular interest to "fans." Hugh Jennings, the manager oT the Detroit Tigers, is probably the moat widely .idvortlscd or managers. A stranger watching him coaching for tlie first, lime might suppose Jennings to by deranged. Hu from ono foot (o the other, plucking bhitlas ot grass, and emlUing ,hls famous aild other soutuls are hardly more intelligible. Yet Jen- nings Is snid Io be one of the heat' educated melt in baseball, and cer- tainly the best educated _manager of prominence. He is a graduate of Cor- nell University, ami has practised law. Mis two greatest personal chnracterls- lies, and (hose tlmt have Imd most to j do, with his success, are persistence ami cheerfulness. Ho Is nhvpya try- Ing, and never discouraged, although Ihu fti'ct that he is said to have con- ceded the pennant race to Ihe Phila- delphia team would indicate that he despaired for a moment. Neverthe- less, lie can be counted on to fight H nut to Ihe last. Jennings is a be- In the pleasant smile and the chflcrful word In dealing with his men. Connie Mack, his greatest rival In tiie American League, IK also an ex- ponent in courtesy when dealing with players. Me rarely ono In the rinjs of another. Ho is r, tniiet- spbUcli man, and his relations with his playern are paid to be almost fatherly. Mack is not a playing man- and he Is probably the only great, manager who never goes on the coaching lines. His instructions to ;tlio men are given- from tbc players' bench. As far as possible hu keeps oiit of the limelight, and has well earned the lltle of. the "diplomat, of baseball. The other extreme is well represented hy John McGraw, mana- ger of the fvew York Nationals, popu- larly known as the Giants. McOraw, off the Held, Is a humorous, affable companion. On the field he Is as near -a rowdy as the Jaw allows, and if Me- Graw's team happened to be playing in a. Slate where it was' no felony to assassinate an umpire, AlcOraw would probably-destroy one or two every game. He Is the champion umpire bailor. He Is a fighter through and and will stop at nothing to wlii a gaitic. There can be no doubt about his. courage, and he does not hesJtate to defy his own supporters and admirers in carrying out his own wishes. McGraw has linen the sub- ject of moro newspaper criticism than Icct of moro newspaper criticism lhan wouiu tm uii HB o inv man in iho big leagues, but It fees lialf-dozon plnyera In not affect him. Clarke Is said to possci A manager who is oven more bent out and reticent with tho newspaper- men and with the players. He rarely tells anybody -anything until It has happened. Like: McGraw, he would not'hesilate to. bench, (he best player on hia team to preserve discipline. player is so good to either .McGraw or Chance lhat be tfan be allowed to disobey orders. As far as the results of the .past half-dozen years count Ghnn'ce muct be reckoned the most successful leader, in baseball. Last fall iie got the worst blow in his career when his team was beaten by the younger and -more aggressive Phila- delphiang. Then It was eaid that. Chance would have to build up u new team for the present season. He made thrco or four changes, and his old machine Is going as smoothly as over before, and seems not unlikely to have an opportunity of evening old scores with the Athletics next October, Another great manager Is Fred Clarke, of -Ilia Pittsburg team, who will bo Hoen In Toronto oti Thursday. Like Chance, Clarke Is a playing man- ager, but unlike, him, he excels In every department of the game, ,inri would picked up as one of Iho best the game. las more "per- sonal tlmn any of his Cobb and Lajoie Methods Vary' bobb and Georgia Rosa and tbc Flour-de-Lis in the great con- servatory ot the two great batsmen of the game. Ono Is batting .419 and the other has slashed his way across the .400 mark. They fought, tbolr duel out alone.last year, and, with the exception of Jcc Jackson, aro far In front across the present cam- paign. Cobb. a bundle although apparently careless, keeps his active mind ami a pair of keen blue eyes upon every move the slabsroaij makes Cobb Is hitting at no wild pitches They must come over for him, or his war club It idle. Ho watches the ball up, decides after it has left the twirl er's hand whether It Is good one 01 not, and In that brief instant left, will the ball whirling upon Its way, ellliei steps in with a nervous slash or lets it drift by. He lias no system of waiting om the pitcher. If the first one Is over, the first one is likely trou hie. It isn't often that a strike'it called upon Cobb or that ho swings at one even inches from the plate His sight and judgment are" remark' able, and with' him and muscle work together so harmoniously that wonderful results are obtained. Lajoie. stolid and equally indiffer out, pays llttlo attention to the sharp shooter firing from the rifle pit. La- joie has made up his mind.before the slahman cuts loose as to -what he ir to do. There are occasions when takes his time about it, but as'a gen oral proposition he is ready to swing on the'first or second' pitched ball With his mind made up to take a crack at the next one. It make little or no difference to him, whether the ball flashes up a foot outside, a. foot inside, around the top of his bonnet or across the knees. On this account he doesn't have to wait until the bail is upon its way be- fore he has to do. This accounts mainly for the ..fact that Larry bns smached so many wild pitches to the outfield precincts of the field. If any record could be kept it would probably be ..found that over fifty per cent, ot the Frenchman's base hits have been made off shoots that would never have crossed the pan. Of the two, Larry has the cleaner, freer swing, hut Cobb the quicker judgment., Cohh's swing Is shorter moro of a quick snap, due to the fact that bis batting musctes. have not re- ceived the order to hit the hall is nearly upon him. But both In one respect carry the same that is of-hitting on a. line parallel to the "ground. Neither swings up nor down, but around Neither chops down at a drop, nor up at a fast one around the. always parallel with the ground as the bat can come. The bulk of their batting ability, against the rest of It, lies In their almost perfect timing of the swing, due to an almost perfect co-ordination of eye, mind and muscle. no waste effort, no' mad shaking of the body, productive only 'at' lunges and clumsy blows. The club conies around' sharply, but evenly. But In'Larry's case, the bat is held loosely' until the ball is pitched, the fingers tightening and gripping almost at the moment of impact. Cobb gripe tightly'as the pitcher starts his delivery; he takes ho chances of .being bis guard. And yet In the matter ot hard and mighty hitting, nellher Cobb nor La joie are upon a par-with Sam Craw [ord q0Frank Scbultc, the two great est shrehers ot the present age. Both Schulte and Crawford whip their war clubs in .more'fiercely, and use a greater 'snap of the wrist Ichillte more upon lis powerful wrist-snap than upon any other factor for-obtaining the' won- derful length to his drives.
