NEW YORK-, Aug. 30--Who is the greatest hitter that baseball ever knew? It ss.erned to us that the best way to roUhcT out this argument was to .go in a direct line to one who was maitor at applying th« aih- ' So 1 looked up Ty Cobb, author and producer of more than 4,000 base hits. ".' ' ' No, T.v didn't 'name Cobb. He. nnmcd .Shoeless Joe Jnckson. ·'··! "I'll tell you why Jackson : le- longs on top," Cobb said. "Back · In those years we.'not" only had to swing at a dead ball but also a ball tliat was doctorcfl In every known way. We had the spit ball, the erncry ball;-"the fuzxccl-up ball--ft ball that would do a lot of -queer:-"things and. cotoic nt you with odd dips and breaks. So the good hltv'crs of that period had to choke the bat and ffo In for punch hitting. "All except Jackson. 'Joe still t o o k - h i s full swing' and he was often up there from' .380. to .410. I know I could never., have lilt above .800 with that type of swing. Only Jackson, old shoeless, joe, had the eye and ths 'smoothness and the timing to ' do that. '' "I used to wonder why he didn't strike out at-.'.least'.twice a game, tclclng a full .cut at a. ball that: flopped and ducked from the treat- j ment it got, either by emery, or | thumbnail or saliva. "Taking nothing away from . Babe Ruth, the Babe never -had to swing at a slipper or fuwed- up ball where you could lead the- league with ten or twelve 'home . runs. The trick stuff had ended before Babe moved to the. outfield in 1919. I asked Ty, managing the Western All-American Boys' team that meets Babe Ruth's Easterners, what was the greatest thrill he'got out of baseball, "On the bases," he said. "I liked to run and at times .try out a few crazy things, such as scoring from first on a single or scoring from second on a n . o u t f i s l d - fly. "The home-run ball or the bis Inning 'has cut heavily into base running, one of the best parts of the old game. Now too 1 many of them wait for a long hit to drive them home, in place of scoring- by their own. speed or wits or daring. "Baseball to me,! 1 . Cobb ' continued, -"is still the best game for the average American kid. It doesn't call for the, punishment that football or boxing demands, but it demands a .higher type ol all-around skill. Good ball players must start as'- kids. And also there is punishment enough. I've had to slide into a base on raw flesh .more : than '.once : where it didn't seem that.I had two square inches of skin left -on, either leg. "The old game keeps -you thinking. Many decisions you make are split second affairs. Others are planned weeks ahead for the right spot, I waited once for .over two months to pull a certain play on the Yankees that happened 'to win the game, I had to wait for the right setup. .. ' "This country will make n serious mistake If it doesn't encourage and hoip baseball in every known way. We need more playing fields, more opportunities for play now denied in too many places."
