EVENING LEDGER PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 191.
KING FOOTBALL MOBILIZING MANY RESERVISTS -PHILLIES IN TTO GAMES TODAY
LAST DETAIL FOR
Braves and Athletics Having
Easy Time Phillies Meet
Cubs in Double-header
Here This Afternoon.
Practically the only matter of Im
portance In the major leagues which
has been left undone Is the spinning of
the coin to decide whether the first
Barnes shall be played In Philadelphia or
In Boston. While neither the Athletics
nor the Braves have mathematically
captured the flans In their respective
IcnRUes, nothltiB short of an earth
quake can head the present leaders.
The Olants tost their last chance es
terday when they were beaten twice In
the course of four hours at the Polo
Grounds by Miller HilRKlns' band of
former contenders. During that period
of time the Braves uero evening mat
ters with the Cincinnati Beds, thus
drawing further away from tho metro
politan e-nemy. Should the New York
ers, by some strange freak of fortune,
be able to capture their Inst thirteen
games, the Braves would have to win
eight out of their final fourteen.
That the Olants have completely Inst
heart was evident In their second game
with St. Louis. The first contest was
close, but when the Olants finally lost
out, they appeared to give up nil hope
for the pennant, allowing themselves to
b shot to pieces b the shower of hits
and run? made by the St. Louis club.
Hank O'Day's much-buffeted players
will be seen again this afternoon at
Broad and Huntingdon streets. A
double-header N scheduled, to begin at
1-.10 o'clock. The heavy batting of tho
rhllllcs vesterday showed the Cubs
plainly that the Palsies are still trying
to win games.

Here's what Balrd Leonard fays:

Certain spectators appear to Imagine
that when they buy a ticket at the gate,

The players do not lend hearty support
to the idea.

BALTIMORE. Sept. "I.
Although there are accommodations for
Sji) odd horses within the gates of the
racing plant of the Maryland State Fair,
thee will be Insufficient to meet the
demand of the many horsemen who have

at Lain el Park. When new stalls for

thought that everbody could be tnkfii

TO CLASH WITH
Connie Mack Not 111 at Ease
Over Race Which Red
Sox Are Putting Up
Against His Champions.
CHICAGO, 111., Sept. 2l.-Connle Mack
will send his players to battle today with
the club which hns always given the
champions a fight. There hns never been
a time In recent years when the Mack
men were able to predict with any degree
of certainty a victory over the White Sox.
Harry Davis remarked that the chief rea
son for this wns that tho Kroun3s at
Comlskey Park had a peculiar effect on
the playing of the Athletics, first, becauso
of the soft Infield, and secondly, becauso
of the direction of tho sun with reference
to the playing; field, as It lo different from
any other diamond In the league.
Despite these things. Mack l deter
mined that his men shall win. Ho Is not
doing any vast amount of worrjliiB over
Ihe result, but he wants to got the race
over nt the earliest possible date In order
to'glve his men time to recuperate from
the season's lens strain before the aeries
Today the Athletics have a lead ot Mi
gnmes. one-hnlf of a game less than tho
advantage enjoyed by their National
League rivals from Boston. Nevertheless,
the Mackmcn feel that this Is more than
an ample distance ahead of the lied Sox.
There Is a queer argument which has
been put up In Boston referring to the
relative strength of the Tied Pox and
Athletics, The Hub followers claim that
because th Bed Sox have won the ma
jority of the gnmes plnycd against the
Athletics this year they should win the
Such an argument Is quite absurd, be
cause Boston has tried to keep her best
pitchers to work ng.ilnut the Athletics
Instead of shooting them In agnlnst somo
other club which ultimately won games.
On the other hand, Mack has made no
effort to save anything for Boston. Tho
McGllllcudlan policy Is to win by tak
ing everv game as It comes on the sched
ule, or, rnther. In trying to take every
one. After leaving Chicago the Athletics
go to St. Louis for two games. The
curtailed scries In St. Louis Is mad"
pr-sslble by the long series of five Barnes
played by the Mackmen against he
Browns on the first Western trip taken
by the champions this year.
Dean Sturgis. former Bucknell College
catcher, who has been with the Ath
letics all season until recently, is trying
out with the Pittsburgh Pirntcs. Mack
still owns the player, as he was forced
to allow him to sign a "college con
tract." which prevents the player being
sent to anv other club, either In the
minors or majors, without his own con
sent. Sturgis realized that he was not
making a great hit with Mack hence
he went to the Pirates for a tryout when
