"Whether or not baseball players will

cama up for discussion at tha
Portland Roundtable headquarter a
day or two ago. Jack Barry, former
big league outfielder, now 1n Portland
Coast League livery, believes the sug
gestion made by a Xew York doctor re
cently a very logical one.
"Certainly I think spectacles will
help a batsman," declared the popular
and versatile Barry. "This statement
may sound far-fetched now. but
member that the catching mitt.
mask and the breast and shin protect
tors are only recent products,
"A large majority of people have
some minor defect In their sight. They
may not know It. but It's a fact. I had
my eves examined two years ago for
the first time and I found I was trou
bled with astigmatism. Xow If I had a
pair of heavy rimmed glosses for use
until I reached first base whjr shouldn't
they help me?"
Barry rites that nearly every batter
h'as some favorite ball he can plug
safly nearly every time. He aska the
reason for this.
"I'll tell you why." he pointed out to
several of his teammates. "Take the
example of the man who can hit the
drop ball for a high clouting average.
His astigmatism distorts objects so
that a pitched ball looks lower than
It really Is. Hence the above result."
Patsy O'Rourke, manager of the Sac
ramento Senators, was of the mind that
pitchers would hurl the pellet straight
at a man's eyes if he wore spectacles,
but by building heavy rimmed ones,
nothing would happen even if they
were hit. and It would be no more dif
ficult to keep from getting hit in the
spectacles than from getting plunked
in the eyes.

In Byram. Sacramento southpaw.
Manager Patsy O'Rourke. of the green
socks brigade, believes he has the best
portslder in the Pacific Coast League.
He says Byram will go to the majors
this Fall without a doubt and that lie
will "walk through that bunch up
there" Just as Vean Gregg has done.
"And I'm not so sure that the Bostons
will get Byram, either." muttered the
scrappy Irish Inflelder with a recalci
trant toss of the head.
"Doesn't John I. Taylor own a con
trolling Interest in the Sacramento
Club and doesn't that give him rlrst
chance at Byram?" O'Rourke was
"Yes, Taylor gets first crack at Mm,
but he'll have to pay more than any
body else ofTers. and take It from me.
Bvram may land with Philadelphia."
replied O'Rourke. "My home is In
Philadelphia and I am out to help
Dooln and that bunch all the time.
Didn't I get Alexander, the famous
young twirler who has won 15 and
lost three this year, for Dooln from
Syracuse a year ago? You bet I did,
and I don't care whether Taylor knows
it or not."
a a a
O'Rourke believes "Sweet Six" Steen
to be the best pitcher on the Portland
Beavers' staff. He ranks him side by
side with Arrelanes as the premier
righthander in the league, giving Ar
relanes the shade, owing to his ex
perience in the major circuit. "Spider"
Baum, of the Sacramentos. and Miller,
of San FVanclsco. are O'Rourke's run-ners-up
among the right-hand throw
ers of the Coast League.
a a a
"Happy" Hogan, of the Vernon Club,
Is sweet on bow-legged players. He
gave a young Callfornlan a chance last
week simply because the lad waddled
like a Christmas goose. "The bow-legged
ones are more sturdy and their
ankles are stronger. Whenever I sign
up a youngster I look to see If his

Manager Wattelet. of the Victoria
Northwestern League ball club, is per
mitting Pitcher Blaine Thomas, his
speed-ball artist, to go East tonight
to Join the Boston Americans, notwith
standing the fact that his twirling
staff is already in a sadly crippled con
dition. There should be a league rule pre
venting such disruption of a club. Vic
toria may need the money mighty bad
ly at this stage of the game, but noth
ing tends to put the National game on
the toboggan alley quicker than mid
season bartering of players. If the
Victoria fans stand for Wattellet's ac
tion it will simply be because they do
not understand what a square deal in
the great American pnstime means.
Wattlet says he gets $3000 for
Brown, of the Vancouver club, is
guilty of a similar offense, for Jimmy
Harrison, his fleet outfielder, left Ta
coma yesterday for Pittsburg in re
sponse to frantic calls for help from
Fred Clark. Pittsburg has been finding
It tough sledding of late with Tommy
Leach far below form and a substitute,
Carey, making many blunders which
have proved costly. Harrison probably
will get into the game at the outset,

De Witt Van Court, the Ixs Angeles
boxing instructor, covered the Wolgast
Moran fight for the Times and charac
terizes the battle as the worst he ever
saw. He says both men could have
been disqvlifl3d many times for break
ing the rules.
Van Court thinks Moran made a seri
ous mistake In keeping too close to
tho Cadillac bruiser, but says Moran
Is surely a past master when It comes
to the rough stuff In the boxing game.
"He began early to use his elbows
and forearms in the clinches and then ,
tried the old gag of throwing tha
referee off his guard by complaining
of the other man.

"Constant Reader" writes in to find
out how Ty Cobb came, to sign with
Detroit. Cobb was first heard of in
104. when lie was "Hied" by the Au

Into the air while running bases,
knocking down a ball that had been
thrown to catch him. and was called
out. The next season Tyrus got an
other chance with Augusta and made
gocd. Detroit tlitn had an arrange
ment with Auerust'i whereby the latter
tearr was permitted to use Pitcher
Kddie Cicotte with the understanding
that Detroit was to set a good man at
the end of tho season. Cobb becajno

SAN FRANCISCO. July 9. How many

question in pugilistic circles.
In addition to the proposed match
with Wells, Wolgast ia considering
September matches with Packey Mc

Brown. Before the Moran-Wolgast
battle. Wolgast and Wrelsh posted J1000
each to bind a September match, this

Welsh left today for Los Angeles ta

Before Wolgast left San Francisco
he announced that he had been offered
the largest sum ever drawn by a light

Packey McFarland. under the auspices
of James Croffroth, who probably,
would stage the battle at Colma.
