BASEBALL BENCH GREAT SCHOOL
OP "GOLDEN RULE"-ALEXANDER
The Joys and Sorrows of Sanctum Sanctorum of Team
Described by Famous Phillies' Pitcher Effort
and Sincerity of Purpose Count Most
By GROVER CLEVELAND ALEXANDER
Orwte.t fla.etall rilehrr In the WgtTto;ttnt,V of the Philadelphia National. I
Frequently I nm nsked to tell what
actually linrpcna on tho players' bench
In tho comae of n, bnsebnll pnme, 1 regret
that I cannot tell.
The little exchanges
ot wit, the serious
conferences, tho oc
casional spats (for
even tho best of
friends clash occa
sionally In tho heat
of tho battle), and
the words of pralso
o r condemnation
from the manager
arc private, and
must bo kept so.
No member of n.
guards more zealously what tnUes place
In his lodgo room than docs the veteran
ballplayer the sayings and doings on tho
However, there aro a few things that I
may tell you which will prove of somo
Interest, and at tho same time I will not
be telling tales out of school.
The general Idea seems to prevail that
the ball club forms Itself Into a con
demnation body to Jump on tho player
who strikes out, mnltrs an error, or in
some way does that which he should not
do. That Is not so, ot least In the ma
jority of clubs, I am nulto sure.
If a hard-working player goes to tho
plate, takes healthy swings ut balls that
arc over and falls to hit one, he more
often gets sympathy than censure when
he reaches tho bench. A veteran will
probably say: "That's all right, my boy;
ho fooled mo on that hook the last tlmo
I was up. Wtitch him next tlmo and let
It pats. Lay for that fast one. Ho don't
put a thing on It." And tho manager
probably will give him a slap on tho back
and tell him to "go and get him the next
time up, son."
If an lnflelder goes after a hard hit
grounder and boots It or throws It wild
to first, or an outfielder misjudges a fly
ball and then drops It, ho will get sym
pathy nlno times out of ten. "We all do
It now and then, pal," some fellow will
whisper In his ear. Eveh If tho mlacuo
let In a couple- of runs and gave the op
posing team a lead, the pitcher who is
hurt most by the slip, If he's tho right
sort and has been through tho fire, prob
ably will say something to let the offen
der know that ho doesn't hold tho error
ngnlni-t him; that ho knows It was un
avpldable. Now nil that Is true of tho ball player
iho tries; who has his heart In his work
and feels liko butting his head against
the concrete wall of tho grandstand every
tlmo he falls to get a hit In n Pinch or
makes a costly error.
On the other hand, if the players on
tho bench know that one of their number
Is not trying and that he docs not worry
when ho falls to deliver, then they Jump
him In unison. You can tell pretty nearly
when a man Is playing mechanical ball
and thinking only of the let and lath.
when his pay checks aro due. And that
kind of a man doesn't deserve sympathy;
. he doesn't get It, cither.
v THE UNPARDONAHLE SIN.
' There Is one player who Is bound to
fet his bumps pretty regularly, and
Hist Is What wo call a "bonehcad." Borne
baseball .alu-.verfl - refuse 'to'keep "their1
heads up and think. They will make a
rlp-roarlng hit and then try to steal
second on tho flrst ball pitched, although
It Is evident that the catcher Is on and
Is going to call for a waste ball. That Is
one of the least of their transgressions.
Well, tho "bonehead" seems to expect
censure from IiIb mates, ns n general
rule, and ho gets It good and plenty.
The ball players figure that by pounding
at him day after day they may finally
drlvo some baseball brains Into his head.
How far they go depends upon how
much he will stand. They aro careful
SALT WATERS TEEM WITH FISH
OF ALL KINDS; BASS ARE COMING
Great Catches Made in Every Line During Last Week.
Indications for Big Season in Channel and. Striped
Bass Notes About the Anglers
By DR. S. H.
Last week was the banner season for
salt water anglers. Outside of tho surf
man, who devotes his tlmo to the eluslvo
channel bass, all varieties ot salt water
anglers have had their 'hearts gladdened
with fine catches.
The bays, inlets and slues along tho
Jersey coast are teeming with food of
all varieties. Clams, shrimp, muscles and
crabs are abundant, and mullots have
made their appearance at least three
weeks earlier than heretofore. This prom
ises an early run ot striped and chan
nel bass, as well as tho great tide-runners
or yellow-bellied weakflBh that run
as high as 10 pounds.
From the fisherman who Is satisfied
with his one-day vocation at Anglesea
or Somers Point to the scientific angler
who hits the bay with a cotton thread
and a fresh-water bass outfit all have
been well satisfied with their catches.
Likewise Is this condition true farther
north. Market fishermen along the Mas
sachusetts coast havp had the largest
catch in recent years. One day's catch
would have supplied each inhabitant of
the State of Massachusetts with a pound
Dr. Charles Bartlnei of Philadelphia, Is
dally hitting the surf fishing at the point
of bench at Ocean City and has been well
rewarded with good catches.
While fishing last week in the Egg Har
bor Inlet Warren Allen and Arthur Hop
wood, of Philadelphia, landed 86 kings
and five WueflBh In one day's outing.
W F. Lodgo, Jr., of Philadelphia, had
an exciting experience while fishing last
tteek off I0th street in the bay at Ocean
City for weakflsh. He hooked into a 75
pound cow-mouthed ray. After a severe
battle ho brought this dangerous fish to
H. A. Wlilriifleld. a veteran angler ot
Philadelphia, Is having some splendid fish
"B Jn Italnbow channel. His largest fish
for the week are 4-pound, 4H-Ptu"(1 and
6V4 pound weakflsh and a number of
smaller kings and weakflsh. Wednesday
b Piloted his friends, the Bav. M. Bonner
and Mr. Harris, of Philadelphia, for a
pleasant day's fishing. '
- Bamuel J. Ilugal, of Philadelphia, caught
a 25J4-ounce klngneh while surf fishing at
Bert Stretch, of Somers Point, knows
where to hit tho bluelteh outside. One
day last week his catch numbered SO
Wues. one of which weighed five pounds.
William J. Carrol, of Philadelphia, while
fishing off the club pier at Ocean City,
caught a weakflsh we' hlr two pounds
and three ounces.

the, yacht Helen, is having wonderful
catches of seabats and porgles at tho

not to exceed tho limit of his endurance,
for nothing will put a ball club on tho
blink quicker than a "crab" who nets
soro and starts Internal dissension.
Occasionally a veteran will pull a
bono" I have pulled several myself,
I m frco to admit. Then everybody from
the manager down to the bat boy Jumps
on him. He probably goes back at them
a little at first, but tho storm soon quiets
down and later everybody has a good
laugh about It and they kid the life out
of "' Vct w'" was guilty of the "bone."
Then thcro Is the player who always
has an nllbl. If ho Btrlkcs out, ho blames
It on the umpire, or his bat slipped or tho
sun was reflected into his eyes from a
window, or the crowd In tho bleachers In
terfered with his vision. If ho messes up
a grounder, the ball hit a pebble or took
a bad hop. The fellow with tho alibi
doesn't get away with It very long.
Another fellow who doesn't got sym
pathy is the one with that "I don't caro"
demeanor. Wo are out there working to
win ball games because we want to win
them and because tho team that wins tho
most Rets Into tho world's series. And
If a player makes, a serious bull In a tight
ku.iiu una ines 10 laugn it on, he gets
his good nnd nroner. and tho flrat nn in
Jump on htm Is tho manager, as a rule.
After my flvo seasons ns a big leaguer
I can honestly any that I don't mind the
cenauro of the manager or the men on
the bench; that Is, It doesn't make me
angry with any of them. When I mako
n bad mistake I expect to bo Jawed for
It, and I'm kicking myself so hard that
I don't mind what anybody else says to

and gets It right. Is walking to the bench,
after I have erred In some manner.
By way of Illustration, suppose thcro
Is a man on third and two out. Two
hitters are coming up who are frco
swingers nnd are likely to hit anything
you shoot up n mile. You walk them
purposely, figuring on getting' tho next
batsman, who doesn't amount to much
with the stick. But the opposing man
ager "crosses you" and puts In a pinch
batsman who slams the ball to centre
field for two bases and drives In three
runs. Say, after you have retired the
side, the walk from tho pitcher's box to
the bench Is at least CO miles. I have
walked It several times, and I am in n
position to Judge the distance rather well.
A TENSE MOMENT
You know that evory man, woman and
child In the grandstand and bleachers
who was rooting for your club Is calling
you harsh names. Those who favor the
opposing team aro guying you. You are
conscious of every step you take and tho
bench seems to get farther away all the

benches of other ball clubs, but I guess
they aro all about the same. They do
some "Jawing" when tho game Is on.
naturally, but when it Is ended tho play
ers form one happy family that Is, those
on the real clubs. Tho fellow who would
carry a bench argument with him to the
clubhouse or the hotel would not last long
with a club. If a "crab" of that typo
were permitted to go along day after day
without being curbed, he soon would put
the best ball club In tho world on the
The Phillies pull together splendidly nnd
that t. why they have Jjepn in tho -battle
all year. There are more words of praise
than of censure spoken on our bench.
From tho manager down to the bat boy,
wo can "ride" a player when ho needs It,
but when a club is fighting and doing its
best every minute, thcro is seldom oc
casion for condemnation.
To sit on a big league baseball bench
Is an education to a man. It teache'hlm
the golden rule, and it also teacl)ts him
to accept criticism or praise' -without
"losing his head." In later years my

fore Final Swing Around
Four In n row from tho Iteds Is the
aim of tho league-leading Phillies.
Whllo Mornn's men still refuse to pre
dict tho winning of tho pennant, It Is
becoming more nppnrent every dny that
tho players really feel auro that no tenm
In tho league can overhaul them, and
they hope to continue tho present winning

to bo In splendid form nnd Moran is
confident that either can trim tho Iteds,'
who havo lost a great deal of tho fight
ing spirit and ginger that was so no
ticeable In the double-header on Wed

of n mystery, as llcrzog's staff Is In bad

will try to stop the Phils. Toney has
beaten tho leaders twice this season and,
as ho has won five consecutive games,
tho Phillies are likely to havo a hard

Today's interest in the contests is far
nbovo that shown during tho early part
of the week, and one of the biggest
crowds of the week la expected to fill

St. Louis will match their skill of tho
national game with tho Indiana boys,
nnd, as both clubs have played their op
ponents to a standstill during tho whole

PENN'S FOOTBALL CHANCES AIDED
BY FINE FRESHMAN MATERIAL
Backfield, Weakest Point in Last Year's Play, Will Be
Materially Strengthened Berry and Dorizas Ex
pected to Add Power to Attack and Defense
Ten days In advance of tho begin
ning of preliminary practice, football
prospects ot tho University of Pennsyl
vania look rosy enough. How they mate
rialise will depend upon tho usual number
of "Ifs," The disposition of tho coaching
problem Is the work of the best football
brains Pennsylvania possesses, past and
If the new coaching staff fnlls, the
Quakers will not know where to turn
next. The materlnl left over from last
year, coupled with that available from
last year's freshman class, should give
n squad which for weight and ability
centals any of tho last 10 years. The
"It" hero depends upon how tho new and
tho old men, too, hnvc come through the
last year In a scholastic sense.
One of tho weaknesses of Pennsylvania's
team last year was that the backllcld was
mado up of men who for the most pnrt
were both Inexperienced and below the
average In football skill.
Nearly nil of last year's back field reg
ulnrs havo been graduated or left the
University, so that this year's hack field
will bo nlmoBt entirely new. Merrill and
Murdock nlternated nt quarterback, al
though Merrill played tho position most
of the time. Ho has been graduated.
J Of tho other backs, Avery has been grad-
uaieu nnu mouet nns nii ine university.
Rockufeller and Wray are still available,
nnd so Is Matthews, who did most of the
It Is a snfo wnger that the Quakers will
start tho back Held with a clean slate. In
which members of last year's freshman
nnd scrub elevens will havo first con
sideration. It was well known lnst year
that the freshman team, particularly ns
to tho backs, was superior to tho varsity.
First consideration undoubtedly will be
given to Howard Horry, who has all the
earmarks ot n. wonderful player.
Berry has all-nround cleverness of the
Tim Thorno type. KverythlnB he does In
an athletic sense he does extremely well.
As n member of tho scrub team last year
ho wns the best football player that
stepped on Franklin Field. Whero he
will bo tried this year has not been de
termined. He played quarterback on the
scrub team, but If Bell or Grant can make
good In this position Berry will probably
be tried out nB a halfback, where his
dodging, speed and llne-plunglng ability
can be better utilized. Berry weighs less
than 160 pounds, but he can do more with
his weight titan most men of ITS pounds.
In running through a broken field he is
the equnl of ex-Cnptaln Roy Mercer.
Both Bell and Orant, who nlternated at
quarterback on the freshman team last
year, will get a thorough try-out hero on
the varsity. Bell Is handicapped by lack
of weight, but he Is a clever field general
and an unusually promising drop kicker.
better under fire than any man on last
Both Welsh and Qulgley are well
thought of for back field positions be
cause of the work they did on the fresh
man team. Of last year's varsity backs,
Matthews and Wray look tho best. Mat
thews Is a 200-pounder and a very gooa
drop kicker. His weakness is lack or
speed and defensive play.
There were four fair ends last year.
Seelbach and Koons havo been graduated,
but Hopkins and Urquhart are still avail
able. The latter two were good men to
catch forward posses and they wero
speedy. But they were hardly In the

CITY FOR LAST SERIES
Sheehan to Hurl Against Faber.
Chicago Fans Are Pennant-Mad
CHICAGO, 111., Aug. 27.-The Athletics
arrived here this morning from St. Louis,
whero they had a dlastrous series with
the Browns. Connlo Mack was besieged
upon his arrival to tell something of tho
rumored deal In which Mclnnls goes to
tho Missouri metropolis. Tho one-time
pennant producer, however, would only
i ay that Mclnnls was at home, with his
mother, who Is ill.
Sheehan Is scheduled to do tho pitching
this afternoon in the opening game of the
series against Faber. MoAvoy and Schalk
will do the receiving.
As this series marks the final for the
Mnckmcn here this season, It is likely
that there will be a large crowd, in spite
of the lowly position of the visitors.
Local fans believe that Clnrenco nowland
will be able, at the ninth hour, to win
the necessary games to overcome the
lead of Detroit and tho Red Sox, hence
every effort will bo made to advance at
tho expense of the Athletics.

The coaches do not know whether

out again is Borle, who opened tho sea

was lack of wcght. Ho rowed last spring
and should bo heavier this fall.
At tho guards Wltherow will bo avail
