OLD TIMERS CRACKED BALL
New York, Sept. 2. He ii s great
fielder, but he cannot hit The above
applies to almost all present-day
shortstops, though why it should be
true has not been aniwered. It ii not
unusual to aee a first baseman, a sec
ond baseman or a third baseman hit
in the .300 class, but for some un
known reason shortstops of today
hardly rank as fair hitters. Most of
them are so light on the attack that
they are known aa weak batsmen.
Hans Wagner, now closing his ca
reer at short for the Pirates,' has
been the one notable exception during
the last few yeara, Hana went through
seventeen consecutive aeasona in the
National class, but in his last two
seasons even Honus has fallen victim
to the light hitting germ which has
affected the shortstops. Hans fin
iihed the 1914 and 1915 season! under
.275. But this mark is high for short'
In the dave when most of the ores
ent-day managers were getting their
base ball schooling in the majors
heavy hitting shortstops were not un
common. Hugh Jennings, now with
the Tigers, hit above .300 in seven sea
sons between lnyl and 1899, and in
later yean Hughey was rated as a
heavy hitter, even though he failed
to sain membership in the select cir
cle. George Davia,' who did his best
work with the Giants and the White
Sox, was another hard hitter. Start
ing in 1893, Davit batted above the
.300 mark for nine successive seasons.
In four of these campaign! Davit bat
ted above .330. a mark which hai been
unknown to latter-day shortstops,
Wagner excepted. v
Long Cricked Pill,
Herman Long, once a star with the
old Boston Nationals, who closed his
major league career with the Detroit
Tigers s few yeara ago, wai another
ihortstop of the old school who tailed
to show any great weakness with the
stick. In four aeasona Long ranked
close to .325 with the nick, and he
wai alwavt regarded aa a dangerous
hitter while he waa able to play regu
larly. Bill uahlen batted his way into
the .300 class in three campaigns, and
in two of these he batted above ,360.
lohn M. Ward was a .300 hitter in
three campaign! and close to the mark
in many more. f.d McKean ot tne
old Cleveland Spiden wai in the le
lect circle no leu than lix times.
Tommv Corcoran, thouah not as suc
cessful as those above mentioned in
netting into the select circle, man
aged to reach the coveted clan once
and come close to it in other lea
ions. All these playera were itari in
the field and far more dangeroui with
the itick than the ihortstops of to
Joe Tinker, while never a .300 bate-
man in his Cub days, was more dan
gerous than most present-day players.
Fletcher la Beit,, J
The best .hitting shortstop of the
new school ii Art Fletcher of the
Giants.it He has been McGraw'a regu
lar in this position since 1911 and he
hat batted .319, .282, .297 and .286.
Last season Fletcher batted only .254
and this year he ii hitting about .270.
Kotrer reckinpaugh ot the Yankees.
gene, .'.ly rated aa the best defensive
shortstop in base ball, is one of the
light hitteri. Peck batted .268 in 1913,
but in no other campaign in the ma
jor league! hai he batted above ,235.
Duck Weaver ot the White box.
who hai been the regular for the past
tour years, nai not gone Deyona xi
ince he came to thdtSox, In two
campaigns he batted under .250.
Rabbit Maranville of the Braves, an
other of the great shortstop! of the
diy, has not closed a campaign with
a mark above .250. In 1912, hii firat
year with the Bravei, Maranville bat
ted ..W for a few games in the closing
days of the race. In the three inter
vening campaigna ht has batted be
tween .240 and .250.
Donie Bush of the Tigen ii another
who must be classed ai a weak bats
man. Bush joined the Tigen in 1908
and batted .294 for twenty games. He
batted ,273 in 1909, but never hai
mached that mark aince. In three
campaigna he has batted about .230.
and twice he finiahed with a mark of
about .250. . .
Barry Is Weak.
Jack Barry during hit davi in the
great Athletic infield wai the weakeit
hitter of that quartet. Once he batted
.275, but in all other canmaia-na he
hit below .265. In the last two cam
paign! be hai batted .242 and .244,
but now he is a iccond baieman.
George McBride of the Senators ii
anotnrr oi tne lame class. He is a
great fielder, but in eight consecutive
campaigns he has failed to bat above
.235. Four times he batted between
.230 and .235, and three times he has
batted below .215.
Ray Chapman of the Indians, who
was shitted recently to third base,
batted above the ordinary run of
shortstops while he held down the
position. He started with .312 for
thirty-one games in 1913. but in the
intervening campaigns he lias hit be
tween ,J80 and S7. , .
The latest crop of shortstop follow
out the rule. Everett Scott of the
Red Sox hit at a .201 clio last season.
and Lavan of the Browns batted .218
for 157 games. Bancroft of the Phil
lies, in hia Ant aeason as a major
leaguer, hit at a .254 clip. O'Mara
batted .244 for Brooklyn last season.
Now cornea Wortman of the Cubs.
They are saying the aame about him.
He ii a great fielder, but he cannot
hit If Miller Huggini would play
Roger Horniby at shortstop regu
larly the rule of weak hitting might
be smashed, but Hornsby is being
played everywhere, and there ii no
telling where he will finiih up aa a

leave for the east late this month or
early in September and will be ready
for a very busy season in the ring.
Ertle has been resting ince his re
cent victory over Johnny Ritchie of
Chicago during the democratic con
vention week at St. Louis. - .
A bout with Kid Williams, to Drove
that he can defeat the Baltimore boy
without any assistance in the form of
a foul, is the aim of the little west
erner. Ertle charges that Williams
has been none too anxious for a re
turn bout and cites as an instance
the falling through of the proposed
match last April after Mike McNulty,
his manager, had accepted terms.
promoter, offered Ertle a guarantee
of $2,500 for a bout with Williams.
Mcrtulty lost no time in accepting it.
"Go, get the Kid and the match is
on, is the remark made to Edwards
by the manager of the Minnesota
bantam. It was quite a disappoint
ment ' to Ertle that the match fell
through, and he plans to keep after
the Baltimore boy until he satisfies
fistic followers that he is Williams'
master ia the ring.
brtle writes that he would be very
pleased to meet Williams in a New
York ring, but will not let this point
interfere with a match. He is also
anxious to meet Frankie Burns, the
Jersey City bantamweight, who has
been a leading contender tor the title
for some years. It is possible that a
bout with Burns will be the first of
Ernie's coming bouts in the east.

"Gee, we sure are full up on tour
luments just now," said a Small bdy
as he gazed at the score board at
the Umaha ricld club. But the boy
was wrona. The sheets now on the
board, which record the progress of
the city tournament for women, the
kids' tournament and the Field club
junior tournament, will have to be
shifted around and space found for
anothei), which starts today.
The new tournament, which was
proposed and got under way yester
day abernoon, will be the first tour
nament of mixed doubles ever played
in Omaha. And it is going to be a
very "mixed" tournament. The nams
of the young ladies who yesterday
afternoon promised to play and the
names of those attending the dance
last evening and willing to enter are
to be placed in a hat and drawn to
pair with the men entered. Then the
"mixed pairs" will draw again for
place on the score sheet.
In the women's tournament Miss
'Catherine Krug has already won
three games and has qualified for the
semi-finals of the tournament which
will decide who is to meet Miss Addie
Fogg, the 1915 champion. In the three
matches Hiss Krug has played her
opponents have made a' total of four
james against her thirty-six. Her
vriends are pulling for her and expect
her to win the tournament and give
Miss Fogg a hard game for the cham
pionship.. In the junior singles most of the
-Cames in the third round have, been
iilayed with the following scores: C.
Mullen beat W. Best, 6-2, 6-2; Buck

Jefferson, 6-2J 6-2. Ege and Kyser
and Wilson and Adams" still have
games to play in the third round.
Dopesters on the game think that
Green has an excellent chance to run
through the lower half of the drawing
and meet Wilson, Buckingham, or
Ege in the finals. There is no chal

The "kid tournament, in which
boys from 1 to 14 years old, are eligi
ble, is complete in the first round, as
follows: Otto Nelson won by de

The only game of the second round
played by 6 o'clock last evening, was
the one in which Berekle beat Otto
Nelson, 6-3, 6-0, and thus qualified
for the semi-finals. It ia hoped that
most of the games will be played off

Gibbons Doesn't Hanker '
To Tackle Jack Dillon
New York, Sept 2. Mike Gibbons
evidently wants none of Jack Dillon.
This has been proved through an at
tempt to match the St. Paul phantom
and the Indianapolis boxer for a bout !
at St. Paul on Labor day. A St. Paul
promoter got Dillon's consent to a
the Philadelphia Xjnatch with Gibbons, and Mike's first
cunuiuuii was 11111 union mane iuv
pounds. Jack agreed to do this. When.
Gibbons had been cornered by the
promoter in order that terms might
be signed, Mike demanded a guaran
tee of $15,000 and a percentage of the
receipts. This was out of the ques
tion. Dillon wanted only $5,000. The
failure to make the match caused Dil
lon to come out with a challenge to
Gibbons, in which he offered to make
160 pounds at 3 o'clock and post a
forfeit of $2,500, for weight and ap
pearance. Southern Association.
