Brooks is one of the best catchers in

The work of Jerry Downs,- Seal sec-

This isn't meant for an eulogy of

in the league.

Mai Barry, Oak f irst-sacker, has dis

Barry arrived at Oakland from Jersey
City well stocked with information re
garding the hospitality of Californlans
and particularly the residents of "My
city, Oakland." The first surprise in
store for Mai was the playing of Oak
land's games In San Francisco. The
hostile attitude of the Seal rooters to

game on the Coast say that Fitzgerald
would be the Ty Cobb of the Coast
League if he had a good arm. In the
opinion of many fans if Fitzgerald had
an arm they would be calling Xy Cobb
the Fitzgerald of the American League.

remforced before the week is over.

Looking Them Over.

THAT Dolly Gray, when with Wash
ington, pitched a one - hit game
during the season of 1909 against the
Chicago White Sox, yet was beaten by
the big score of t to 4? It hardly
seems possible that a pitcher could
keep the hits to a single safe wallop in
the big league and still be forced to
suffer a S-to-4 defeat, yet that is just
what happened to Gray. The cause of
the defeat under such .circumstances
was the usual trouble. lack. of control.
When Gray; was able to get the. ball
over the plate the Sox were unable to
do much with his delivery, but Gray
had more than his share of trouble lo
cating 'the plate in that game. He
gave 11 bases on balls and. mixed up
with these passes, were some boots as
well as flies to the outfield. Chicago
being able to total a half dozen runs.
The only hit was of 'the flukiest sort,
generous scoring making It a hit In
stead of an "error. Major league rec
ords reveal few such games as the one
twirled by Gray against the Sox.
That in the first inning of the game
between the New York Giants and St.
Louis Cardinals on May 13. 1911. the
Giants got away to a commanding lead
of 13 runs? That opening session was
the fattest run producing first Inning
in recent years. - Eleven years previous
the Boston Nationals scored 13 runs in
a game with St. Louis. Every Giant,
with the exception of Mathewson,
batted twice in that remarkable open
ing session. Eight clean hits were
largely responsible for most of the
runs. Included in those eight hits
were a double, a triple and a home run.
Fred Merkle. who baa figured In most
of the unusual happenings of - the
Giants, was the leading swatter, with
a double and a home run. being re
sponsible for six of the 13 runs scored.
Harry Bailee, still with the Cardinals;
Bob Harmon, since traded to Pittsburg.
and Grover Lowdermilk, who will get
another chance In fast company this
year wltU the St. Louis Browns, were
the pitchers in the swatfest.
That the season of 1908 was a very
unusual one in major league circles?
That In 1906 the Chicago Cubs won 116
games, a major league record? That
for the firsjt and only time in major
league circles a team that finished last
in batting won a pennant, the Chicago
White Sox turning the trick? That
the longest major league game was
staged. Philadelphia beating Boston 4
to 1 in a 24-lnning battle? That the
Chicago White Sox established an
American League record for games
won with 19 straight, falling one
short of tying the major league rec
ord of 20 made by Providence, of the
National League, in 1884? That the
Boston Americans, under Jimmy Col
lins, suffered 20 straight defeats early
in the-season? That later, the Boston
Nationals almost equaled the perform
ance byM ropplng 19 straight? That Ed
Walsh pitched in seven of the 19
straight wins of the White Sox be
tween August 2 and August 23? That
he pitched four shutouts and allowed
only six runs in the seven victories?
