Pinch Hitter and Outfielder Comet
to Portland at Suggestion of
Jack Tlghe, Former Manager
of Seattle Team.
Ever hear of the T. R. of baseball
Tyrus Raymond Cobb? Well Portland
haa a man on tta Coast league staff
who was Just that a few years ago and
who waa unseated aa the champion
batter of the American league by till
asms Tyrus R.
We have In mind George Stone, for
mer outfielder for the St. Louie Browne,
who wee s'gned by McCredle a few daya
ngo for outfield and pinch hit purpoee.
and who, aa mint fane know led the
American league In batting In 10 with
an average of .951.
Stone haa been playing profeeelonal
baseball for 11 yeare and Are of theee
were spent with St. Louis 1UI to 190.

fered them Capron. a youngster, and
voluntered to pay half hla salary for
the string privilege. Stone asked for
hla releaaa and secured It.
"Kansas City offered me a Job but

for Elmer Koestner In the conversation
Stone started out with Omaha In the
Western league In l0t. the Bon ton Red
Hoi purchasing hint In the Kail and
turning him back to Milwaukee In the
same circuit for seasoning In 103. The
next year Stone Jumped to Joe Can

organised American Association, where
he bat tod .40. only to be recalled by
Boston In 10I.

The Nebraska swatologlst didn't re

famous trade for Jees Burkett trans
ferred him to MeAleer'a St. Louis
American camp where he waa destined
to shine for two or three seasons aa a
wonderful hitter and base runner only
to fad and falter and flicker Ilka
randla lit a choppy breeie.
The story of the wherefore of the
Burkett trsde Is Interesting. When
Burkett played left fleUl for the Cleve
land Nationala he waa the hardest hit
ting outfielder In the business. Cleva-
land secured him In 1131 from the New
"York Nationals. When tha Bt. Lou I a
Browns took the field In the baby
American league Burkett Jumped to
them and continued hla wonderful
Jess waa so fast In going to first,
however, that when he began to alow
up the fane got after him. Burkett
retaliated and during Ms final couple
nf seasona his attitude on the field
brought upon himself the nickname
"The Crab." Larry Moselle, a St. Louis
baseball man who la a Portland visi
tor, says Jesa was the crabbiest star
In- ever laid eye upon.
In 1905 when Burkett saw himself
slipping be went to TresMcnt Hedges.
of the Frowns, and suggested that ha
trad him for Stone, the Boston youth,
who he laid would soma day be a
wonderful batter. Boston bit at the
bait and proferred 12600 In addition t
the player..
Burkett'a Judgment proved pretty
correct, for"he remained with Boston
only ona aeason and then went back
to hla old lo-ra, Worcester, Mass, where
ha organised a team for the New Eng
land League and proceeded to win
four straight pennants. Htone, In the
meantime, waa knocking down the
fenres for Bt. Loul.
Stone- played under two different
managers at Ht. Louis, McAleer. now of
Boston, and O'Connor, and the closest
his team cam to a pennant was In
1201. when It remained within etrlk
ing distance until the stretch, when
the pitchers failed. He attrlbutea th
perennial lowly position of the Brown
to the plcayunish policy of the manage
ment In allowing all the other teams
to grab off the coetly promising ma

"Always give the batter the best of

Is the principle which governs Aug!
Moran's dealings with pitchers and bat

"In every gsme there are from a half
to one doxen balls which could be called
either ball or strike, and I always try
to give the batter th best of the argu

when It come to th deciding ball.
"Th pitchers will continually com

'Last aeaaon Crulkshank swatted hla

It Is probable that Crulkshank would

as when the league boasts of a plethora
of .100 batters. His low average gave

Although he boosted his average to .247

tiasse Is Sparkling.
The diamond bout was a sparkling
one, with Schwenk Just wobbly enough
to keep the crowd of 1000 fana on
edge. Four double plays, one nego
tiated by Butler unassisted, featured
the contest.
The Senatora scored two runs In the
second Inning, a single, a double and
two errors acoountlng for the talllrs.
Beaver runa In the aecond and fifth
tied the score, but the Invaders made
It 1-2 In the sixth and Increased to the
final 4-2 In the eighth. .
The spectacular work nf the game
waa furnished by Bancroft and Irnlan.
The Beaver third sacker made a won
derful atop of Sheehan's grounder In
the seventh Inning, knocked down tha
ball, chaaed It for 30 feet, and then
made a rifle-shot peg to first In time
to nip the runner. Irelan Is charged
with the only two Sacramento errors,
but he handled 11 chances faultlessly,
several of 4hem decidedly difficult, and
figured In the two double plays.
Kraeger Lets Ball Pass.
Th scoring came In thle manner:
In the aecond Inning Swain singled,
and went to second, when Krueger, for
the third time In as many days, let the
ball get through him. Miller, a good
fielder but a weak hitter, fouled out.
Lewis singled to right and Swain
scored when Doane fumbled the ball
before making a peg for the plate that
bounded the ball over Backstop Fisher's
head. Sheehan then drove a "groover"
to the fence between Krueger and
Doane. acnrlng Lewis.
Portland scored In Its section of the
second. With one gone Irelan bob
bled Butler'e grounder and the runner
stole second. Doane waa walked, and
Bill Rappe, who waa responsible for
three of the Beaver orouts, scored But
ler with a single to left Doane was
nipped at the plate when Fisher
grounded to Schwenk. and Klawltter
fouled out.
In the fifth Fisher, the first Beaver
up, drove a low one to center. Kla
wltter forced him at second, but Chad
bourne beat out a bunt to Schwenk, the
aecond time he ""slipped one over" on
the Senator heaver, and Bancroft took
first on a swinging bunt to third, fill
ing the bases. Klawltter scored on
Rodger's sacrifice fly to left field.
Kraeger Again Falls.
Irelan walked In the sixth, stole sec.

to Rodgers, and scored on Van Buren'a
drive that went for a double when
