This Youngster Is In the Big GROOM AT HIS BEST WHEN FACING HEAVIEST HITTERS Sam Crawford Is One of Sir Robert's Principal Victims. By "SENATOR." Sir Robert Groom, the elongated, attenuated attenuated toothpick twlrler, backed by a hitting team, has come into his own. He is at his best when facing tho league's greatest hitters. Ho is now-looked now-looked upon as the second best pitcher on tho Climbers' staff, Johnson alono excelling the splinter pitcher. There are at least four of the league's mightiest sluggers who seldom cause Groom much trouble, though they Found and hammer and bump the offei-ngs offei-ngs of other pitchers to a fare-you-well. The lank lad winds his perplexing perplexing curves around their wands, makes them fish for his wide benders and breaks their backs trying to lnnd on his spltter. Sam Crawford, the aged slugger of the Detroit Tigers, is Groom's principal victim. Crawford is disgusted from the start when he knows that Bob Is on the mound for tho Nationals against tho Tigers, for Sam Is veiy well aware that another day Is going by without his doing anything. . Proofs Are Many. Proofs are many of tho marvelous power Groom holds over tho head of the Tigers' greatest Hwatter. Even last year, when the Nationals looked like a representation rrom an old soldiers' home, the long lad fooled and toypil with Crawford as If ho were a veritable boob from the giass lands. This season It has been the same story, and no man on the Held was so happy when Groom was banished fiom the mound In Detroit by tho umpire than the pudgy gardener of the Tigers. He had got rid of his worst foe nnd might hope for a blngle or two, though ho got none. Ty Cobb, tho Incomparable, Is another of Groom's victims. Cobb is a terror to most pitchers, particularly to those who cannot field their positions or have little control. When going right, Groom's control Is excellent and ho knows what to do with a grounder sent his way, ho It fast or slow. Oh, yes, Ty gets hits now and then off Groom, but he counts them mighty lucky ones and makes no boasts about them. When a pitcher can go into a gamo reasonably certain of stopping two of his best hitting opponents his chances for victory are more than good. Therefore, Therefore, Bobby Groom does not shudder when carded to face tho Tigers, for he knows his ability to feazc both Cobb and Crawford, and they're about tho whole Tiger team with tho willow. w Collins Is Another. If you would see a bright diamond star look like a bush league boob In a single afternoon, take a look ut Eddie Collins when forced to bat against the winding curves and puzzling spltter of Bob Groom. The little second baso-man baso-man of the world's champion Athletics Athletics Is one of the most consistent sluggcjs In the league. He fears no twlrler. But when Collins goes up against Groom, the odds are against his boosting boosting the hitting figures that day. He Just can't seem to get hold of the ball with any degree of force. He gave one of these pitiful exhibitions last week In Philadelphia, going without a blow all day The best he could do was to hammer hammer a hot grounder to "Buzz" Foster for a death at flrat. Then he rolled to Gandll and perished. His lact time up, with Maggert standing expectantly on third base, he stood there and looked at a third strike dart across the pan at an impossible angle He had been fooled most Impressively Ping Bodie a Joke. Out In Chicago the South Side bugs are always pulling for Ping Bodie to shove tho pellet over the garden wall. The organ grinder from Frisco does do this occasionally, too, but never when Bob Groom Is on tho mound against him Then Ping curls up and dies, slowly and gracefully. Tho great Ping Bodie, killer of opposing opposing pitchers, slaughterer of the best curves and fast ones. Is a veritable veritable Joke when compelled to swing on that slde-urm curve ball of Groom's, lie goes out for them like a fisherman. Even when he happens to land on one It seldom rolls beyond the infield. When the Climbers were In Chicago this spring Bodie rolled four puny little, grounders to McBrlde in a row. He never had a chance. Cobb, Crawford, Collins, and Bodie make a sweet quartet of diamond Among the Minors. American Association. Indianapolis, 3; Columbus, 5. Milwaukee, 5; St Paul, 4.

Ty Cobb Holds No Horrors for Nationals' Effective Twirler. sluggers.

He has their number. number. Gandil Is Sore. "Chick" Gandll Is soie. Indeed, ho is peeved and vexed. Picking up 11 weekly baseball paper, he read that Montreal sport writers are blaming him for not giving his best efforts to the Montreal club. "What do you know about that for a charge?" he asks, hotly. "Saying I quit up there In Montreal. That's about the caliber of tho wi iters up there, though, wouldn't know a hall player if they stumbled over him in a dark alley. "But that's something I've never done quit on a manager. I've always done my best wherever I've been. If I can make good with the Washington club, I'm going to hang on. If I can't, the manager Is never going to be able to say that I didn't try. I'm always out there doing my best, and I don't like to read that I didn't try to play good ball In Montreal."

The baftifball fnn rushes to tho park to see a contender. Tho Nationals havo proved this conclusively this sonson, and hope to continue showing the proof. Tho largest crowd ever drawn to ?hlb.i Park bv n Washington club piled Into the huge stands last Wednesday whtn, with all the piistlge of their teventeen straight victories, the Nationals Nationals appeared to combat the world's champion Aihlctlca. Eighteen thousan 1 fans gathered to look upon two of the lmrdcit fought baseball battles In the hIMory of tho game. But these figures were ber.ten on tlu rollowlng day, when L'2,WW tans, an on fire by the hair-raising victories of tha Mackhicn the day before, tilled every seat In tha vast structure. But they wouldn't all have been there had the "Old Fox" been leading the misfit aggregation aggregation Jlinmv McAleer toted around the clr.;iilt In 1911. They were there becuukc Griff's team hod a chance to win. Should Make Money. The Washington club should make a pot of money this season. If Griffith cin hold his club In the first dlvlaim, and It seems fair to believe he can, the most diosptous season In ths hls-torv hls-torv of the clubi should be experienced in J0'2 Indeed the heavy Indehtcdneso if the club should !i wiped out in jib time with a winning club. Washington, long tired of suppoitlng a losing venture, will flock to see the Climbers when they can win half their games. This year's team looks strong enough In every department, too, to be able to hold Its own with the best clubs In the league. During the home stays of the Nationals thn club's treasury should benefit greatly by the Increased class of the players. On the road, too, the Nationals will draw more people than ever before.

Herman Schaefer Just can't be feazed. He won't be. that's all there is to it. During one of the Philadelphia defeats defeats he went to bat for Joe Engel and .1 rooter In the upper tier Joshed him In a loud voice. "Who's the batter? Who's the batter? Who Is he? I know him, but who Is he?" he shouted. Schaefer paid no attention to his tormentor, tormentor, but cracked out a double to tho fence In center field. When the Inning was over he walked past the rooter, and, looking up at him, "There he Is, hut who Is he? I don't know him. Who Is he?" That particular fan, a pest all day until that moment, subsided thereafter. Delighted With Shanks. Howard Shanks' line work, both at bat and in the field, lias earned him a reputation In Philadelphia, even as it has oil over the frontier section of tho American League. "Where's this Shanks''" asked one fan of another within hearing of tho witter. "I came out today just to seo him. From all I've read about him, ho must be another Tv Cobb." That was the day the lad tried to knock the cement wall down In left field limning foi a foul fly, and later inn up the banking and pulled down a sure triple, and the rooter was one of the first to start the applause for tho Youngstown flyer. 1ST SUCCESSFUL; WAY BE REPEATED Canoe Races and Scull Events Prove Attractive to Spectators.
