BEST CLUB NOT IN SERIES
At Least that is What Griffith of
Washington Says of Boston.
STARTED WINNING TOO LATE
Xld Not Get I p the Right Amoant
of Steam 1'ntlt Rich a Time aa
the Race Tamed Into a
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. "The best
ball club Jn the same today will not take
lart in the coming world's series. But
this club will surely be In It next year
with anything like an even break In luck,
for class will tell.
The above words were spoken by Clark
Griffith, manager of the Washington
team, the other afternoon. If Urlf had
supplemented this statement by naming
Ms own club as the strongest in the land
he would only provoke smiles. But Re
Pins the bouquet on a rival team of
his own organization, at. the same time
admitting that he cannot hoie to win a
pennant with the Washington team as it
stands today, because of its weakness
with the stick.
"The best ball club In the world today
Is in Boston," said Griffith, "and I am
not referring to the Braves, who are In
the thick of the pennant fight. I mean
the Red Sox, who have hardly a remote
chance, if any at all, to win a pennant.
Before another season has gone very far
the fans will admit that I had a proper
line on Carrigan's team In making that
ktatement. They will beat out the Ath
letics next season Just as sure as they
will beat my team out this season. Ami
right here I will say that the Athletics,
thoush I rank them as poorer than the
Red Sox now, are tn no danger of losing
the coming world's series to either Giants
or Braves, which ever team may face
"Sounds illogical, doesn't It? One may
ask why the Red Sox are not out In front
if they arc better than the Athletics. I ll
tell you why: the changes that have
made the Red Sox snch a wonderful ball
club were not made until the American
leugue race had ceased to be a race and
had turned Into a procession. With the
neent acquisitions the Red Sox are
clearly the best balanced ball club In the
"I fully estimate the strength of the
wonderful infield of the Mack men and
Wally Schang, the great catcher of the
Athletics. But Boston Is now a much
better club, all departments considered,
than the world's champions. Mack Is
weak In pitchers, though, those two wise
old birds. Plank and Bender, will be
properly fitted for the short series next
month. On the other hand, Carrlgan has
the best pitching staff in the country,
one of the best ever gathered together
on one club. Wood hss had a rather
poor year, due to appendicitis, but he Is
a wonder and he will be back next year.
Leonard Is another great pitcher, aa his
record this season lias shown. Foster,
Vean Gregg and Ray Collins are also
something abov he ordinary in plUhtng
skill. But to my mind the star of the
entire collection f have not mentioned.
This Is Shore, the youngster who was
purchased by Lannln recently from Bal
timore. He is the nearest thing to Wal
ter Johnson who has come into the ma
jors since Walter arrived and I look for
Shore to develop Into another Johnson,
lie is one of the main reasons why the
Red Sox are better than the Athletics
now and Hoblltzel Is another.
Infield More Than Half.
"The Athletic infield is more than half
the team, ranking so far ahead of other
departments in strength that there Is no
comparison. Well do I know the strength
of it. But Boston is now looming up
with a remarkable quartet of inflelders,
every one a star. I had Dick Hoblltzel
in Cincinnati and I consider him a tlO.OOO
ball player. How he ever got out of the
National league will always be a mys
tery to me. When 1 got the request for
wai.-ers I thought it was simply a feeler
for a trade, not having the least sus
picion that the National league would
let him escape. If I had realized that
he might get out I would have got in the
bidding myself. I have a fine first base
man myself and I give him credit for
making my club a 1-2-3 aggregation, but
I would have found plenty of use for
Hoblltzel. Normally Dick is a .290 hit
ter, as he showed In every campaign up
to the present while with Cincinnati. He
' is name,' always fighting, keeps In good
condition and Is a great man for a club.
He has rounded out a great Infield for
Two C'omlasj Stars.
"At second base and shortstop Carrlgan
has two of the coining stars of the pro
fession. Toung Scott, who stepred In
w hen Wagner's arm went had, k my Idea
of a remarkable ball player. He Is a bit
weak with the stick now, but he will im
prove. His fielding could hardly be Im
proved upon. At second base is Hal Jan
vrin, one of the most brilliant all-around
stars tbe game has recently developed.
He tan play anywhere on the Infield from
first to third, and now that he has a
chante to specialize at on position he
will be a star. Gardner at third is one
of those steady and reliable players who
are always doing something and doing It
well, though he is not played up aa one
of the game's great stars. He Is a good
ball player. With two youngsters full of
natural ability and Improving all the time
there are two veterans on the opposite
corners, this combination making a fine
"Now take the outfield. There Is no
well Informed fan who wilt deny that the
lioston outfield is well ahead of the Phil
adelphia gardeners for ability to cover
ground aa well as to hit. In fact, Boston
carries the best outfield In the game as
well as the best pitching staff. Speaker
and Hoopt r are wonderful outfielders;
Tris Is a great hitter and Hooper is al
ways dangerous with the bat. Lewis In
j left lacks the speed of his two partners.
but he carries a dynamic punch In that
old bat of his.
Catrhlns Staff Able.
"The catching staff of the Red Sox
may not bo the lx-st in the game when
one figures the throwing and batting as
well as the receiving, but It carries plenty
of ability. Carrlgan Is a wise fellow and
a fighter, and he has his men working
hard all the time. Cady and Thomas are
good, dependable backstoppors.
"Figure the team as a whole from back
stop to outfield and it Hands out today
as the best balanced hall club In the
country. Furthermore, It Is able to beat
the Athletics. My team has always found
the Mackmen a stumbling block, and this
beat us out of last year's pennant. But
the Red Hox have already won eleven
games from Connie's team and they have
lost only eight. Even before the recent
changes the Red Sox were able to hold
the world's champions practically even,
and now they turn around and take four
tn a row.
"It Is not to cast any reflection on
the teams in the coming series that I
say the beet team In the country Is out
or It. It Is simply to give credit where
credit is due. We all try to get the
stars and Carrlgan has picked up enough
within a few weeks to make a near-contender
loom up stronger than any other
club playing ball. His capture of Hobllt
zel was a master stroke, but the pur
chase of Shore was the kingpin move.
The trado for Gregg ought to show great
results In another year. To all this newly
acquired strength add the ability of two
sterling youngsters, full of speed and am
bition, around 'that second sack, and then
back up thia crowd with the best out
field In the game. If this entire aggre
gation of playing talent does not loom
up aa the best balanced ball club in the
game, I'll admit that I don't know a
real ball club when I see one."
Coa td n't Pick Winner.
"How about the National league race?"
Grif was asked.
'"I won't attempt to pick a winner," he
replied, "but I will state that It Is more
than emphasizing the honesty of base
ball. Here we fin on one hand Wll
bert Robinson, a friend of every Giant,
fighting tooth and nail against his old
pals, and on the other the Phillies, who
are not over strong for New York, mak
ing the Bravea go Into extra Innings
for a game that they had apparently won
with a four-run lead. Regardless of per
sonal feelings every player on the op
posing club la working his head off to
win, even though victory means nothing
to his club. It is part of the game, this
desire to win, regardless of consequences
to friends. In the American league we
find .the Athletics working for every
game, even though they have a big lead.
Their big lead has killed Interest In Phila
delphia and la costing the club thousands
of dollars, which any kind of a close
race would mean. But the players are
not letting up any In order to let their
employers reap a harvest. It is a case
of win all the time, and this honesty is
the health of base ball. It Is Inborn In
"Put a crook Into base ball, and he
would be an honest man In two years."

Amateur Iliue BaJI Players Will
Gather at Ronrke Park and
Show Themselves in Ath
By I'll A SiK HIIGLEY.
After a tough and gallant fight against
overwhelming odds, the Omaha Amateur
Base Ball association has closed Its first
season successfully. Omaha fans are also
coming to the conclusion that Omaha has
an amateur association that will soon be
equal to any of Its kind In these United
States. With this much accomplished, the
directors of the association will improve
conditions, considerably next season. The
most important thing left on the blll-of-fare
for the directors to handle before
taking their six months snooze. Us the
big field meet, which will be pulled off at
Rourke'a park, Sunday, October 4.
, Cause a Good One.
Of course, nothing similar to this meet
has ever beetn Jerked off In this town
and it is a cinch that a record breaker
crowd will be on hand to witness these
events. If the fans fall to decorate the
stands on this Cay, there will be a an
tral bunch of ball tossers. Now, fans, you
really owe it to these boys to slip them
a few Jitneys, because they have played
all teason without asking you to dig In
your Jeans, and it Is only an equitable
play on your part to reciprocate now that
the opportunity la afforded you. All you
have to do la to slip two bits over the
counter. Just the price of a couple of
gcod weeds. The field meet will start
about 180 o'clock and will last until 4
o'clock. To Instill more Interest, the as
sociation haa secured the St. Paul cham
pions to buck up against the, Omaha rag
g lorn mere.
