SCREWBALL" OF THIS -DAY
How to Pitch It Is Nu Secret, Despite Bunk Handed Out by Some
Big League Writer Ever So Often.
BY. L. 'H. GFUCGORY.
VERY now and then some
writer in the bigr leagues
"discovers" a pitcher he -ac
claims as havins: learned the secret
of Christy Matthewson's old fade
away. Columns are written and the
sensation speeds around the circuit,
the fortunate younjf hurler being
declared the hurling wonder of his
day. And so on and so on.
For example, the St. Louis Browns
have a kid left-fiandor nam, ft!
rruitt. Not long ago somebody
found out that rruitt was pitching
the fadeaway. Immediately he be-
came, in print, tile hurling ace. of
the big leagues. All kinds of
extravagant assertions were made.
It was said, for instance, that Pruitt
j "the first pitcher since Matty'-
IU Illrtl-ltl Llir- 5? I I J I lino uiim-
cult and mysterious deliver-."
All of which is mainly bunk. Pruitt
may be good, but he is not the first
pitcher since Matty to master the
fadeaway. Nor is the fadeaway so
mysterious and difficult. How to
pitc.i it is not even a secret. Under
another name it is a very common
delivery these days and while not
every pitcher who takes it up mas
ters it. plenty of them do.
The fadeaway of Matt;'s time is
nothing in the world but the "screw
ball" of today. Any number of
good pitchers throw the screw ball
and are highly effective with it.
Names? Well, Herman Pillette,
now a star with Ietroit, is one.
Suds Sutherland of the Beavers has
been pitching the screw ball for
years. It is his favorite delivery.
Lefty Leverenz of the Beavers
another. He has
screw ball. Probably
pitchers in this league use it, some
more effectively than others.
The screw ball Is a reverse curve
That is. its spin is just opposite to
the regular curve-ball spin of the
pitcher using it, and it breaks in the
direction of its spin. With a right
hander pitching, the screw ball re
volves like t'he threads of a screw.
hence the name. A right-hander's
screw ball breaks like a southpaw's
curve, and vice-versa for a left
hander. To get this reverse spin is the
difficult part of the delivery. It
requires much practice, not only to
get the spin, but to control it. But
once mastered, few pitchers have
difficulty controlling it.
Instead of leaving the hand off
the thumb side of the first two fin
gers, the wrist being snapped at the
instant of delivery, as with a curve,
the screw ball leaves the inside of
the second finger between that
finger and the third finger. Obvi
ously, its spin is exactly the reverse
of a regular curve-ball spin. It can
be thrown 'fast or slow, according
to the degree of mastery the pitcher
has over it. '
Lefty Leverenz has one of the
best screw balls in the Pacific
Coast league. He also has one of
the best curves. He picked up the
screw ball way back irf 1913. and
did it by himself, too. That was
just about the time when Matthew
son's "fadeaway" had set t'he big
leagues by the ears as a mysterious
new delivery. Leverenz says that
Matty at that time would show no
other pitchers how he threw his
fadeaway. and that he himself
learned the delivery independent of
Matty and with no idea it was
Matty's fadeaway he was experi
menting with. .
He wondered what a ball would
do if thrown from the Inside of the
first two fingers, and experimented
with It until he could control the
"I started with the St. Louis
Browns of the American league in
1913. being there in '13. '14 and "15,"
reminisced Leverenz tlje other day.
"I had a terrible time getting under
way that first year. As 1 recall
it, I lost my first five games. That
was how I first came to use the
screw ball in a game I had to
have something to break the jinx.
"I tried it first against 'Connie
Mack's Athletics, then a great
championship baseball team. Mack
had the . most remarkable aggrega
tion of signal stealers I ever have
seen on a ball club. If they couldn't
get the catcher's signs to the pitch
er they would study the pitcher and
get the sighs by observation of his
"Pete Daly, formerly with Los
Angeles in the old Coast league. Was
the worst. I got next to the fact
that Pete was standing on the first
base line and tipping off my curve
ball and my fast one to the batter
from the position of my fingers as
my hands went over my head in
winding up. He . never missed,
either. He couldn't do that on me

now. I am sure, for I have learned
to conceal the hall better, but he
was tipping the batters with deadly
accuracy exactly what I was going
to pitch, the result being that they
let my curve ball go by and stepped
into the fast one.
"Somtthing had to be done, so It
occurred to me to cross them with
my new delivery. I had been prac
ticing it for months, but without
saying much about it because I was
afraid the manager would. make me
quit it through fear it would hurt
"Anyhow, I tried it. You never
saw more amazed sluggers than the
I Athletics when the new hook came
twisting up to the platter. They
couldn't diagnose it at all. I not
only stopped their slugging, but -we
won the game. Jimmy Austin and
the other veterans on the Browns
said they had never seen a pitch
like that, so they had me show them
how to throw it. From that day
Austin has been teaching the screw
ball to every rook pitcher with the
Browns, and I don't doubt that is
how Pruitt learned the delivery."
Leverenz says the screw ball is
identically the same as Matty's
fadeaway. He says he has batted
against Matty, seen his fadeaway
and hit It and that it is the screw
ball without any difference.
"I have used the delivery so long
now that it is second nature to me."
said Lefty. "I can break it fast or
slow, using It like a fast ball or as
a change of pace as I please. Or I
can break it side-arm like a right
hander's side-arm curve or overhand
with a downward break. It used to
be thought that it was a hard de-
livery on the arm,, but I don't see
why that should be. I never have
J fe!t the slightest ill effects. When
I pitch the screw ball I take pains
to get my body into the pitch.- which
takes the strain off the elbow."
Herman Pillettes most effective
delivery last year with Portland
was a screw ball, though Herman
also has a great fast one and a
quick-breaking cum. His screw
ball had a "sinker" break on it. The
ball broke down and inside against
a right-handed batter and was ex
tremely hard to hit.
No doubt. Pillette is using the
same "sinker" screw ball delivery
at Detroit, though none of the big
league writers seems to have dis
covered it yet. When they do,
judging from their excitement over
Pruitt. they will be calling Pillette
Matthewson the Third, for he can
make his screw ball or fadeaway
if you like that better sing a tune.
Pillette learned his screw ball
from Matty himself. Big Herm was
with Cincinnati a few months while
Matty managed the Reds, and he
used to tell last year how Matty
showed him the delivery.
The lack of mystery as to the
screw ball delivery may be proved
sljll further in training camp a
yfTar ago at Santa Maria Walter Mc
Credie urged all the Beaver pitch
ers to learn the screw ball.
Walt wts enamorad of the pitch
because of the weird effects Suds
Sutherland had accomplished with
it the year before while with the
"Suds, In batting practice, used to
let the boys know when he would
pitch a screw ball," McCredie in
formed his pitchers, "yet even when
they knew it was coming- they
couldn't do much i with it. 'Every
young pitcher ought to learn how
to throw it."

and F. T. Hunter of New York. It
was in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1. 6-3.
The '.Australian and the Spanish
Davis cup pairs did not get into
action today, but a team of their

Attention in Kocuned.
The Tilden - Richards - Shimidzu -Hunter
match focused the gallery's
attention on the country's probable
Davis cup doubles combination. It
showed them in finest form. Tilden's
service fairly boomed. Richards'
angling placements sparkled, their
collaboration overlapped at times,
but always effectively. The point

UNION'S STAND IN DOUBT
Barring of Athletics of 320 Amer-
can Colleges and Other Organ
izations at Issue.

NBy Chicago Tribune Leased Wire, i
CHICAGO. A,ug. 21. A meeting
will be held in New York tomorrow ;to submit the matter of joining the
night which may result in the ath- I federation at an annual meeting,
letes of the 320 American colleges, ! but some of its leaders oppose join
of the United States army and navy, ing.
the Y. M. C. A.. Jewish welfare, the j
golf and tennis associations bing
barred from participating in the .
Olympic games to be held in Colom- I
bes stadium, France, in 1924. i
At this meeting six representa
tives of the American Olympic as-
sociation, ,five of whom are lead
ers of the Amateur Athletic Un
ion, will meet six . representatives
of . the National Amateur Athletic
federation in a final conference to
reach a basis of compromise. Un
less the Amateur Athletic union re
cedes from its stand and grants
the federation representation on the
Olympic committee, American ath
letes, save those sent by the Ama
teur Athletic union, will be barred.
l'nion'8 Stand 3iot Known.
The stand of the Amateur Athlet
ic union is unknown. Colonel A. G.
Mills, at a recent conference, .de
clared for war on the federation, and
declared that the Amateur Athlet
ic union would enlist enough may
ors, politicians and prominent men
to overshadow and wreck the fed
eration. Others who represent both
the Amateur Athletic union and the
Olympic association adopted a more
peaceful stand and finally agreed
to attend a conference to seek a
peaceful way out of the athletic

Athletic union absolutely controls
the situation so that no American
athlete can compete in the French
meet unless vouched for by his
own organization and his applica
tion must be vised by the Amateur
Athletic union. Meaning that the
Amateur Athletic union will control
absolutely and can select or bar any
American from games.
Power Xow In Kelt.
The joker was not discovered
until during the recent meeting of
the internationa. committee in Paris.
Then it was found that Frederick
V- Rubien and Gustavus Kirby,
representing the Amateur Athletic
union and the Intercollegiate Amer
ican Amateur Athletic association,
went to Europe, met with the Olym
pic committee, which knew nothing
of the threatened athletic war in
the United States, and on the plea
that it was necessary to safeguard
the games and prevent the United j
states trom sending professionals,
that every entrant have two guar
antors. Claiming to control alt
sports in the United States, the
Amateur. Athletic union claimed
that Mt must vise every entrant to
make it legal. :
Upon these representations the
Olympic committee passed" the rule.
Now the Amateur Athletic union is
in position to tell the colleges, the .
army and navy, the Y. M. C. A., the
golfers, tennis players, trap shoot
ers and all others that they must
join the Amateur Athletic union
and submit to its rule or be barred I
from Olympic competition. ' ;
The method of handling the i
French Olympic meet differs from !
that of previous Olympics. The in
ternational commission is the high
court but it can decide only such
questions as the French committet
does not decide. "The French com
mittee has no power to appoint
judges" or officials but is empowered
only to settle disputes and iuesr I
tions. Each sport js under the con- j
trol of its own federation, which '
decides upon entrants, names judges
and officials and handles its own
Meeting 1 Called.
Each federation claims control of
its own f,port so tiie Amateur Ath
lette union stepped in and an
nounced that it controlled the
United States in the same manner.
When the international commis
sion learned the facts the European
members were amazed, saying that
no one had ever disputed the state
ment that the Amateur Athletic
union was the sole power in
Further, the national federation
has learned that already the Ama
teur Athletic union powers, who
named hemselves as the controlling
force of the American Olympic as
sociation, have called a quadrennial
meeting of the association, to be
held in November. The object of
this meeting is to select the Amer
ican Olympic committee to take
charge of all American plans for the
Last January, when the protest of
other organizations compelled the
Amateur Athletic association to
yield, a meeting was held in tire New
York Athletic club to form an Amer
ican Olympic association. Hereto
fore the Anateur Athletic . union
has controlled Olympic athletics.
The system was to form a large com
mittee, holding control by claiming
votes for each, district, .and more
Votes for each sport over which it
claimed control. With these votes
it elected Its own men as an Olym
pic committee, with a few prominent
citizens and officials added to give

After the Antwerp Olympics the
protest nasi so strong the system
was altered? -but not the results.
The American Olympic association
was formed; with the Amateur Ath
letic miicn and its association hold
ing the majority of the voting pow
er. Ti:t:y formed a constitution by
which, during the second year be
fore each quadriennial Olympic, this

committee, which" is to have full
charge of all Olympic affairs and
"which is not to report to the as
sociation until after he Olympic
The November meeting is called
to select this committee, which may
mean that five Amateur Athletic
union men will be on and control
Under these circumstances the
chances of a lively meeting are
good. The National Amateur fed
eration, of which Colonel Henry P.
Breckinridge is president, 'has de
cided that the federation will not
join the'Olympic association unless
it gets equal voting power with the
Amateur Athletic union and further
to refuse to admit that the Ama
teur Athletic union is entitled to
three votes" for "each sport on the
Olympic programme, -which it con
trols." The federation denies that
the Amateur Athletic union controls
track and field, swimming, boxing,
wrestling and gymnastics in the

The federation has offered a com-
' promise, and there is a bare possi
bility . that it may offer to admit

i and field sports, providing that the
Amateur Athletic union will treat
the college athletes fairly.
