BliYTHKVILLE, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS ' Here's That Champion Intield no 1K5EIK5 But Waller Johnson Warns - Pitchers About Mem- f : phis Bill Jerry. ., EDITOR'S NOTE: This Is the fifth of a scries of six stories In! which Walter Johnson dlscusws: . the world series. Por 20 years one of the world's greatest pitchers, j Johnson is particularly equipped] lo comment on a series In which fine pitching promises to play a -vital part. . BY WALTER JOHNSON (As told to BUI Hrauchrr, SKA Service Sports Editor.) NEW YORK.—If this world se- lies is to be settled by battlnc power. Washington certainly will bf the winner. ! . Till 1 Nationals not only have .four men who have been hitting consistently above .300. ranging * froi'i'i Heinle Manush's .333 downt io Goslin's .303. but tlie other regulars are dangerous at the plate when aims are lo be driven in. as the season's averages indicate. In the day to day lineup of the »Kits, there are four right-handed hitters and four who hit from the opposite side., not counting ihc pitehtr—and this is the ideal balance that managers dream about. The riisht-handcd hitters are Cronin. Schulte, Bluege and Luke Sen-ell. The left-handed punch .comes from Manush, Kuhcl, Oos- lin and Myer. Bluegc and Myer are not heavy hitters, but In a pinch they are fellows T wouldn't like to see up there if I were Hie 'pitcher. Baseball writers used to kid me in the days when I wns managing the team about the club being a "sucker for a left hnnd." There were certain southpaws in the league thai we simply could not Btat. and some of them were pitchers who had very little on .the ball. Managers all around the circuit used to save their left-handed pitchers until Washington came to town. But tills year that has been changed, 'and It was Washington's ability to give the southpaws all the trouble they wanted that helped greatly to make the club a winner. _The trade with St. Louis that brought Fred Schulte to the capl- "tal helped to give Washington the ability to beat a lot of left-handed pitchers. Schulte, a rlght-hand- c.d hitter, started the season like a house afire, imd though hts batting average Sits fallen below JOO recently, It was hts hitting during \the summer that helped the club to pile up victory after victory. 'A Quiet Star j .Something should be said about j the development of young Joe Ffuhel at first base. Joe is a quiet i .wit of chap who stays out of the limelight, not attracting the publicity -certnin other stars achieve, but he has .been a mighty fine ball, pi aver this year, driving in more than 100 runs and scoring 82 himself. Besides he has led American League first, basemen in .. fielding. • . The Giants were so markedly without punch .this season that they 'became known as the "hlt- Iffs wondcrs."-Mel Ott. a lifetime .321. hitter, .slumped below JOO. Lefty OTJoul, whose major league average until this year was .301, also,'fell to below .300. ' Here's a Warning! The club ' won the .National Ltague pennant with only one consistent .300 hitter and that was Bill Terry. Having pitched to Terry in one world scries myself—In 1324—T can sny to the Washington pitchers, "lie careful!" Terry can hit all kinds of deliveries though he is a left- handed batter. 1 In the first game ot that series ht got three hits off me. one a home run. In one of the other games he got a triple on a fast till. He batted .429 in the five games in which he played. We threw him fast balls and curves and just couldn't gel him out. And at that time he was just a youngster breaking in! Terry Is counted on again this year—nine-years later—as the big punch of the Giants.' but fellows like Olt, OTJoul and Travis Jackson are lik'ely to come Jo life and start on a batting rampage any time. These men' are the uncertainties that make for world sericf surprises. Will there be such an . upset this year?
