Gianls "Big Four" Again To Carry Load for New Yorkers Kim'OR'8 NOTE: This Is nn- ollier of a terlr-s of articles on the bljf hagac training c:ini|is, .tm! the ^Pfbnd of hvo stories on the Oi- aiils, nV IIAKRV fiUAVSON ' Kirarls Kdllor, N'liA Service MIAMI BEACH, March 11.—The New York Giants are an old- fashioned baseball club. i They still play for Hint one nni They failed lo swing Into line with Uu lively ball, prompted most managers lo seek runs In clusters. That was one of the lato John McGraw's weak spots (luring the fag end of his career. He hn played t)i<? t'nme Die other wa so long that he couldn't chain; Am! he never could round vn pitching stall cnjwWo of riwMii off ihe opposition. The present great Giant pitch ing .staff was Just forming whpi Bill Terry took command in mid season of 1932. Pat Freddie Flm Simmons is the only one of the Big Four who saw many years o: service under McGraw. Carl Hubbell was just coming into his own when McGraw .step Jjcd down, and Hal Scliumnrhei Whom McCran- signed, hnd hn;: .time only lo reveal fine promise Leroy Parmelee came along from s t]ie s Jvinerlcan Association lo complete (lie -quartet. The Big pour members 'nave combined yjercentage during their veais with Ihe Giants of .Gil. They have won 34!) games nnd lost 222. Know Them In Their Civvies? Inseparatjle I'als Hubbell. Schumncher, Fitzslm- inons, and Pnrmalee nre Gianls In the truest sense or the name. The lost three have pitched ror no othei major league club^ nnd Hubbell had only n brief Irlnl hi Detroit before reporting to Hie Polo Grounders. Members of. the Clp Four nre firm friends, but ns different they can be. Hubbell. Hie masterful Icfl-liander. is a tall and rawboned lG5-poimdcr from an Oklahoma farm. He throws n screwball, , .. -. v;a|( Schumacher Is n 23-yenV-old collegian He Is n serious chap, handsome, and squarely set. He. weigh; ISO pounds, lie is n curve ball pitcher Irani upper New York slate. Vitzslmmons Is n roly-poly, rollicking man or 34. He weighs 105 pounds. iHciJIres only, n couple of miles, jfrora the. Santa Anita nice tiatk at Arc'a ; dia, Calif. He throws n knuckle ball. Pni melee is the son of a conn- i try doctor in Michigan, He is a loose 200 pounder. He banks on blinding speed and a slider. Once more It is these four pitchers that the. St. Louis Cnr- dinnls will lircve lo beat. Only, a minrtet like them could have: nni abled the Giants, with so' many .2CO hitlers in their litipiij); to-bal- lle the Curds mull; the last day of the '34 campaign., . Tlie Big.Four turned in 23 shutouts junl933,' and held the opposition|tot one -run on 20 occasions. That! niadjC 49 games which the New'York -club could have cop- Fed with two runs or less. »ij<in(r Sccomlary With Terry Bill Teny leans to the defensive player. Although a splendid liil- ler himself, Terry prefers lo chat nbout nn athlete's fielding, tils favorite subject is Huehle critz.

O'Doul had slumped somewhat, too, but certainly he would have been an improvement at the plate over Hank Lciber, who just then wns the All- America out. And Weinirnub. with a'battmp nverage of .351. sat there 1 <IF the club slumped. Even when he faced a desperate situation. Tony si rang along- with his best defensive men.
