F'AOri! SIX NKWS Out For Thin! Straight I 'C' "lie Says All American • League Teams Slrenglh- "• ened; Satisfied-With A's BY CONN1K MACK Manager, \VorId Champion rhila delphla AthlctlM I $ American Leas'JP follov.t-r- a:i ov:r the circuit hnve bi-cn lcnp!:i;; for a real race end t '.vouid not ;be surprised if they had it Hits year. j To my mind, all the (ranis have strengthened and It may turn out I that some new pow^r In! | will loom up. The- Athletics were good enough io win two Elralgh't pennants and I have not lost a bit of fnitli in I the'Skill, courage nnd fjhllmj quni-| Hies of my world cbampion-i. but! if it ftf hard to win two In n rov., i it is vastly harder to win llinvj ' straight. I I'le.isfil With Sulis j I am wholly satisfied with the regulars and reserves of our Infield, outfield and catching; departments. For the inner cordon v,'e have three wonderful understudies in Uib William 1 ;, [ Eric McNalr and Pinky His;;ms. i They were with us last year und. played so well they look ready to step into the sheer, of the. regulars when that, becomes! necessary. In addition, we have 1; acquired the veteran Phil Todt. [ R«l Sox. first >basciiuui, to toliter! our Infield. i 1 want to voice wholehearted! confidence in my Infielding rcgu-l lars, consisting of Foxx at llrst.! Bishop at second. Boley at hlmrt j nnd Dykes on third. Because of! his terrific hitting. Foxx lias a I yold mortgage on first b.ise. In' case, he is hurt. I can use Tont f or switch Dykes to first find s;n:li Higgins to third. In case of ac-' ciricnts lo liishop, McNalr would; take his place, while Williams : would fill in for Boley. j New Outllcd Tnlenl i For the first time hi many 1 years, eight outfielders will yo with iis to the training camp.' The newcomers are llsb. Johnson of Portland, brother of the !>:-! troll outfielder; Jimmy Mooie. who joined us late lost year and wlfu i did good work both in ths pen- • nant season nnd In the world scr- - ics; Royer Cramer, farmed toj PoMlanrl last year, and two minor; league youtlis named Fimicy and. Lt:..;:;. ' i The Athletics will have lil; pitchers at Fort Myors. rla., and, nine of llicni are newcomers. If: I can get some lielp from llu Kew pitchers it will mean a lot, to us. ' i The Mick Is In i For reasons I rion't Have to ; explain, - Cochrane will cntch all! of the games when he can stand j up. However, I hnve four new receivers Jn Phillips, once with Detroit; Ucvlng, oblnined recently from the Ked Sox for tlie waiver price; Palmisano of Portland Leslie of Brantford. Can. i As T sotd before, our rivals j rmc strengthened and 1 must! expect exceptionally strong op- i pcsition from Cleveland. Detroit, Washington alid New York.- It' may turn to be a five-cor-1 nercd race, as the four rival: teams I named have buttressed | all departmenUi. 1 will not ven- i lure to guess which out of these; five teams will go over for tho j basebal.l touchdown.

Cleveland was leading New York by three runs when the Yankees filled the bases. It was the Babe's turn at ,bat. Fohl sent Coumbe in to pitch with instructions to pitch only slow balls. Coumbe breezed the first slow one right through the middle and Ruth parked it over the wall. That night found Coumbe in a sleeper, bound for the bushes.
