Now I am becoming enthusiastic over them. They ·' obey all orders like true soldiers and are picking np the finer points of rowing j with remarkable speed.

MANAGERS TAKE TO SOUTHPAW HURLERS Official Averages Show Conclusively Value of Portsiders.

The records show that no less than thirty-one portstders worked 1 n the National, probably the largest number j ever gathered together under one tent · dnrinj; a sonson. ] Only R trifle over half of this number i were pitchers, 17 in all; tho rnst worked Jn the outfield or on first base, One inn linger, Fred MttchMl, could have pot nn entire sonthpnw outfield Into tiie Bold hnd hp wished to do so, vnniaros, Woltcr nnd Flack nil throwing- from the fork side. The fldvnntnjr nf !rft-hnnOed pitchers has long been well known. In the days when Thoy wro scarce they couM njsnnlly be connteri on to fool the bur- ! ters with nirvps which broke just tho ; opposite to those of the right-bunders, As the fcnmp progressed some smart batters learned .to hat loft-hundod so they would hf- especially (fYfx:tlv» against IcfNhnnilrrl pitching." Thia alao added spped Jn tbe cn?es of fast has* runners, as they gmned a couple of steps In getting away from the plot* | on a hit. A few years ago the switching of batters to meet pitchers Tvhen a southpaw \vns substlmtPd for a right- hander Tvas flffnred out. In rhe 1014 world sorle?.
