"Penner is only a kid, about six
feet tall and heavy," continued Walter.
"Last year was his first in the profes

or Illinois. His record was so impres

TIGERS JINX FOR RUBE EILIS
Batting Average Against Vernon In
Last Two Years Is Only .218.
Vernon or Venice, no matter what
name the Tigers go under.- has been
the -dinx club of the league for Rube
Kills, of the Los Angeles outfield trio.
For the last three years Ellis has been
slipping down the battfng average col
umn and the Tigers have caused most
of the slipping. In 1914, when Kill
batted around .320 against three of the
clubs in the league, he could bat only
.285 against Venice. And in the last
two years the Tigers have again held
him lower than any other club, Ellis
batting only .218 against Vernon in
1915 and 1916. Maggerfs .207 against
San Francisco in 1916 is the only case
where a Los Angeles outfielder has
made a poorer showing against a club
In the last three years.
The batting record of Ellis for three
years against the Tigers follows:

the most towards spoiling Ellis" record

Ping Bodle, It Is said, still seems to
be at outs with the Philadelphia Amer

the famous slugger from the San Fran
cisco Pacific Coast League club late
last season. A few months ago Ping
was Itching for a chance to get back
in the major leagues. Bodie was said
to lavs been indignant at having been
sent back to the minors by Jimmy
Callahan, who managed the Chicago
White Sox during Bodies reign In the
It is said that one of Bodie's griev
ances is the fact that Manager Mack
has not written him a letter telling
about his purchase by the Athletics.
Another one is that someone told him
that he would get only 3000 from the
Philadelphia Americans. From Phila
delphia comes the news that Manager
Mack is not worrying in the least
about any threats made by Bodie as to
his not reporting when ordered to
Connie says he 'will write Bodie in
due time and that the salary he will
get will be larger than what he has
been getting for the past two years.
Connie will not have a dissatisfied
player on his payroll. He proved this
during the past two years when he
cut loose from star players, despite the
fact he knew these stars would go to
other clubs and play first-class base
ball. One thing Connie Mack will have
on his ball club Is perfect harmony.
No players with fancied grievances are
wanted around Shibe Park. Before Ping
gives out any more Interviews on al
leged grievances he should wait until
he gets word from Connie Mack.
Perhaps though Bodie was mis
quoted. .They do say that when Ping
played with the Chicago- White Sox
the writers arranged a lot of good
yarns and saddled them on Ping. Bodie
is a dandy object for a rainy-day story.
Perhaps the San Francisco boys have
also been using Ping for rainy-day
purposes. His Pinglets lives there, and
it is from the Seal Rocks city that all
his complaints are voiced.
The Phillies were ?lsarro!n tpd last
September when they failed to get In

Fred Mitchell, the new manager, may
interest Pacific Coast fans.
Mitchell Is a nom de diamond. His
real name is Fred Yapp. When he nrst
reported to the Boston Americans
Jimmy Collins induced him to, change
his name, fearing that such Jibes as
Close your yap." etc, might drive the
youngster out of baseball.
Almost unknown to tne general run
of fans, Mitchell long nas oeen ik5
nized in baseball's inner circles as one
of the keenest students of the Na
tional nastlme in the business, stau-
Ings gave him credit for much of the
success of Bill James. Tyler and Ru
dolph in 1914 when the Boston Na
tionals won the pennant.
Before converting himseir into a
catcher, Mitchell was a pitcner wun
the Boston Red Sox and Athletics. His
experience in the box enabled him to
give valuable tips to Stallings' pitch
ers. In Stallings' absence he always
had charge of the Braves.
Mitchell was catching lor uuriaio in
the International League when Mail
ings took him to Boston in 1913.
Mitchell was born In the Aiiston
section of Boston 39 years ago. Later
the family moved, to Concord, N. H.,
where Fred played semi-professional
ball. He was twirling for the Law
rence club of the Eastern league when
Collins eot him for the Boston Sox.
Chicago traded Outfielder Joe iveny
to Stallings for Mitchell and gave a
cash bonus,- said to have been J5000.
Hank Butcher, who once tried out
with Portland and proved a flivver,
led the Western League batsmen last
year with the grandiose average of
377. About one-third tne players in
the league batted more than .300. how
ever, so Hank's feat hardly stamps him
as a Cobb or a Speaker.

Al Baum, Coast League president,
gave Louis Guisto a good boost at
Chicago recently. Prexy Als state
ment is reprinted from the Cleveland
Plain Dealer, as follows:
"Guisto," aaid Baum, "Is rally a high
class ball player. It he had reported to the
Indians as soon as he was sold there would
have been nothlnir to it. He would have
established himself in popular favor without
delay. The trouble with Louis was that he
balked too long: over the terms and re
mained out of the same for three weeks.
Then, it was more than a week after he left
Portland before he got into a uniform. From
what I hear he was many pounds overweight
