MACK SPRIM&A SURPRISE
Sticks in "Kid" Battery and Win
Third Game of Series.
5T0UNG BUSH PItOVES WINNER
Takea Ills Baptism of Fire and Comn
Off Victor by nion of Grand
. Support from IIU Ttwn
Big Men of the World's Series-Charles M. Tesreau
(Continued from Page One.)
UhoJr efforts nnd Tesreau was yanked un
Not only did Connie Maek risk a pltehor
.bf little experience on the Mao, but he
gambled like a real plunger by giving
ilush a catcher -with even lets actual ex
perience. Schang, however, had acquired
X bit of knowledge about the Giant bats
jmen by catching Chief Mender In the
(opening game and watching what the
Indian handed them. But It always will
'be remembered m the most daring thing
il manager ever pulled In a big event, to
work a kid battery against veterans of
the experience of the Now York Giants.
Schang did not catch aa good a game as
Jilt first one In the series in the minds
bf the general public, lfls throwing was
pot nearly as goo d&nd the Giants stole
h couple of bases, one of their attempts
resulting In the only error the visitors
made, but Schang faced ft different prop
osition today tli an when he was catching
Bender. The Indian holds tho runners
closer Jo .their bases, thiui .Hush could,
this afternoon, and the leads they were
abla to get made Pchnng's throws hurried
and mora worried.
Itstttlnir of the Winners,
Schang Joined the Baker colony of home
run artists by swatting a four-base drive
Into the right field stand in the eighth
Inning. U was aa nearly a dupltcato of
Baker's home run in the first game as
can, be recalled, for It cleared the con
crete wall and landed among the spec
tators In the far corner of the grand
stand back of Murray. But It will never
make aa much noise In tho records of
history as thorn of Baker, because It
ame after the game was absolutely
cinched and with the bases empty. Ills
powerful blow was made off Crandali
after Teareau had struck him out twice.
Collms again was tho hitting ntarvel of
the day, with tw singles and ft three
bagger tn five chances. Baker had to
bo content with two singles, but ho put
both'of them In timely spote, where they
drove In tallies. Eddie Murphy and Old
ring also grabbed a pair of safeties and
Mclnnls was the'bnly man of the Mack
tribe whoso bat went hungry ail day
Athletics Like "Spltters."
Even Bush cut in with a soratoh sin
gje. Eleven of Philadelphia's twelve
safrt hits wero made off Teareau. The
only one oft Old Doo Crendall was
Scbang's four-baser. Of tho five hits
icored off Bush two were scratches and
all except one were lucky. Bchaefer'a
two-bate drive down the left foul link
was tb,e .only smash that was absolutely
clean. The resonance of the Athletic
hits made It certain that a spit ball
pltehor has few terrors for them. They
have had plenty of experience with the
best of that ' style of delivery in the
American league, and seem to have
learned how to cope with the stuff that
lb weighty Giant hurler had. . FoTT. ot
them were tempted to go after tho spit
bait but bided their "tbne until they
:ou)d take a .toe hold and smash his fast
inr-fl, There was no mistaking the
tQUnd o.f tho bat and several welf meant
Irtves were nabbed by McOrawltes.
Giants Sha wStrons Front,
The Glantn presented a more, stalwart
front with, Merkle abek on first base
and able to get around fairly well In
spite of a swollen ankle. Ho proved as
weak in front of Bush's hurling as
Wilts would have done, however, and
did not get on base until ho was passed
in the seventh inning. Then McOraw
quickly lnttrpplated George Wlltss as a
Pinch runner, and later as first sacker.
McLean had a much harder time hand
ling Ttsroau'a delivery than that ot
Mnthewson the day before, and the Ath
letics took full advantage of It Only
a double steal ot third and second was
executed against Larry, and It happened
tn tho first Inplng when It .was of ,th
greatest psychological value to the vis
itors. McLean drove In the first of New
fork's runs In the fifth inning and was
replaced, by Claude Cooper, who achieved
R place In the official records of the great
aVent by stealing a base off Schang.
Doyle, who erred twice In yesterday's,
game', was the strongest factor In the
Giant defense today. Ills feature effore
was a jumping catch ot a. liner which
rpbbed llclnnla of a sure hit In the
fourth Inning, and resulted In a double
play, Tills terminated the .rally which
drove Teareau to cover ana was made
behind Crandajl, greatly assisting the
doctor In stopping that assault.
The game was played under conditions
that were as bad aa those of Tuesday
and yesterday. Heavy rain here yester
day and a drlzxle this morning made It
extremely doubtful If the scrap could be
staged at all. Not until 1 o'clock was
there much hope of pulling it off, but
the grounds were so well protected that
It was decided to take a chance as the
gates already had been open for hours.
The officials guessed correctly, for the
heavy clouds began breaking Just before
time to start play and continued to re
cede until there were patches ot clear
sky before it was over. No sun enliv
ened the wonderful picture made by the
crowd which filled every nook and corner
f the plant, but It was light enough so
that speed alone was of small terror to
the batsmen and craft had to be relied
The tutfltld was soggy and slippery
md the Infield was heavy, while the
base lines were not set to great speed.
The conditions in general were quite
equal to those of previous days. whn
the going was better under foot b'Jt the
igni was lacking to aid the batiroen.
Uaa Carrfally Prepared.
, No pitcher ever received more careful
grooming for the ultimate test than Joe
vsn was given before this game. He
was cent out to warm up alongside of
hawk4y,. another youngster of whom
Mack was willing to .gamble. Before
they had loosened up rguch. It was ap
parent that Bush, was the choice.

IJY J. XV. BIoCONAUGlIY.
The other day we discussed a pitcher
of the Giants who "had nothing on the
bah." This Is a story about a pitcher
who had nothing on the ball. Tho dif
ference Is In the quotation marks. The
story is about Big Jeff TesrcaU, the only
pitcher in the big leagues who was slgnod
on his size.
To begin at the beginning. Big Jeff Is
not his name. .He was christened Charles,
but he was not consulted at the time.
This occurred in tho village of Cape Gi
rardeau, one ot the little towns that failed
to sink Into the Mississippi at the time
of the big earthquake. The steamboats
used to stop thero before the railroads
put the steamboats out of business, so
Cape Girardeau Is now on the map only
as the. birthplace' of Charles Tesreau.
At an. early age Charles Tesreau grew
much to largo for Cape Girardeau. Thero
was ganger .of his blocking river traffic.
His 'father took, him to Frederlcktown
whlph is ,atso in the .sovereign , state of
Missouri, at the edge ot the Ozark coun
try. Thus the young Tesreau became the
northern boundary of the mountains.. .
Too Uiir f or Ball Team.
At 17 he tried to make the local ball
team, but he was disqualified on account
of his size. He Is a yard or so over six
feet now and weighs 220 pounds In condi
tion. He says he shaped up somewhat
after that fashion at 17.
Remembering- the scriptural observa
tion about a uronhet inv&rlablv rMtlnt
ihe kibosh from his own gang, young
Charles Tesreau offered his services to
the Ironton club. The manager of this
bush league outfit, having no prejudices
against bulk for Us own sake, permitted
the coming hero of the Giants to strike
out from fourteen to twenty men with
It was here in Ironton that he began to
qualify for that earlier soubriquet ot
"Bullfrog" Tesreau, a name which arose
from the fact that, In spite of his mighty
hughness, he developed great agility In
leaping lightly from league to league.
At this time he had nothing but his
splendid strength which enabled him to
throw a base ball so hard that minor
league batters could not envisage the
same In time to biff it. At Ironton he
signed a contract with the Austin club
In the Texas league and apparently for
got all about it- Bo did the Austin club.
The latter did not remember that he be
longed to them until It was announced
that he had been signed for a trial with
the St Louis Browns. Then there- .was
a big kick and Big Jeff was ordered south.
111k Jeff Vsi a Tiger.
He remained in the south until tho
league that he was connected with or
that club blew up. Considering himself
footloose and desirous of viewing the
great cities of his fatherland. Big Jeff
signed with Detroit and reported there.
Three days after he had landed Hughey
Jennings was ordered to return him to
the south. Undismayed by these repeated
interruptions in his well planned tours
of the United States Big Jeff settled down
to pitch baso ball at a place called Bhrevo-
port. It was here that McGraw first laid
eyes on him, and having laid eyes on him
he kept them so laid ever after.
Big Jeff pitched against the Giants, but
not with any astonishing success. It was

Charien M. Tesreau Born at Cape

Pitches and bats right-handed. Tes
reau mads his professional .debut In
1909. during which season he played
With Waco, Houston and Galveston.
He was then taken on by the Et
Louts Brdwns, but never given a trial,
and sent to Shreveport. Ho played
with Shreveport until purchased by
tho New York Nationals in the fall
of 1910. Ho was sent to Toronto by
Manager McGraw and played with
that - team- In 1911 until recalled by
the Giants in the 'fall: With Toronto
Tesreau ployed ' I'n "thirty-five games.
He hit 'for .200, fielded .875 and
pitched fourteen' winning games and
nine' losing ones, a winning percentage
of .609. His record since is:

not his skill as a pitcher which attracted
McGraw's- attention. Thercr wasn't any
uch thing In connection with Big Jeff.
It was his tremendous size, his good
nature and hla grit these things, and
(especially the first and last, that com
mended him to McGraw. The little leader
bf the Giants believes in hulk on the fir
ing line. It Is simple arithmetic! with
him. The bigger and stronger a pitcher
is the. longer ho will stand the strain ot
big league pltcalng that's the way Mc
Graw figures it
Took Up Spltfcall.
Wllbert Robinson looked him over at
the same time, and he and McGraw
agreed that, with all that strength and
nerve, It was simply a question of a lit
tle coaching to make a real pitcher of
Tesreau. Thus In due time he was trans
planted to the Toronto club of the East
ern league with a McGraw string on him.
At Toronto he began to learn his craft.
He experimented with the epltball, and
took to it as If he had Invented It. Ho
had been using, thts delivery only a year
wnen jonnny uvers saia ne conuuerca
htm nearly as great a spltball pitcher as
He also worked to develop, a "hook"
a curved ball, to mix up with his fast
and the "spltball." He now has alt three
along with hla grit and strength.
The answer to all of which 's that Big
Jeff Tesreau Is now one ot the best right
handers in the country, and, barring ac
cidents, he is likely to demonstrate tho
same to a noticeable extent this week..
In his resting hours back In the Ozarks
he Is popularly supposed to atrangle
bears by way of keeping his grip in form.
Other historians declare that he had
never seen a bear until Larry Doyle took
him up to the Bronx "SSoo. Tesreau him
self takes no part In the controversy.
His Job Is pitching base balls, and he de

It was known that the southern rivals

The protest has been filed with tbe Ne

Kansas protest Is one from the Kansas
Aggies' based on the same line. '
Coach Stlel'im'thls mdmlng drafted a
resolution whjcb he wilt present to the
board at its meeting tomorrow, declaring
it to be the sense of the board that if
Kansas and the Kansas Aggies persist in
pushing their protests the games between
the schools bo declared off and athletic
relations dissolved. While no official ac

known that at least three members sup

Tho lengthy Nebraska coach was much
agitated over the matter this morning.
He considers) It .extremely Inconsistent
on the part of Coach Guy bowman of
the Kansas Aggies to present a protest.
The Aggies have been traveling In Mis
souri Valley company but two seasons
and each year have played against Ross
without even a murmur. To come In the
third year with a protest looks like
"Foxy" St Ledger Moss has been pull
ing strings with Lawman.
The Jayhawkers' protest was not so
much ot .a surprise to Stiehm.
"Why should they alwaya be complain

"I don't care who they play down there.
Moss can enlist the services of eleven

Secretary Clapp of the athletic board
said ho was in favor of allowing Ross
to play. Clapp said he was in sympathy
with the southern members of the con
ference to draw the color line, but as
Ross has been allowed to play two years.
It was a rank Injustice to the burly
linesman, who Is an admittedly clean
sportsman, to discriminate now.
The protest from the Kansas Aggies
came to Stiehm yesterday from Coach
Lowman, asking that Nebraska grant
the Aggies the same courtesy shown Mis
souri last season and Insinuating that
athletic relations would be dropped if
the request was not granted. Stiehm Is
in favor of dropping them at once. The
Missouri game was an unfair example,
said Stiehm, for it was scheduled with
the understanding that the color line
would be drawn.
There Is no rule In the conference
which would permit the protest.
Kansas has not formally presented a
protest, although Assistant Coach Bond,
In conversation with Reed, asked the
board to consider the matter, as Kansas
would make a request for the color line.
