Mays: A Trade Flfure Carl Mays, one of the last of the old Iribe of underhand pitchers, passed from the big lufigues. Here was one of the most trngli; and temperamental figures In baseball the storm center of controversies that divided the American League into warring camps, and one of the chief actors in a dranm of death that almost caused his banishment from the game at the peak of his career. He was a man'of ice, nerve and wit. Some., of his remarks are classical and I one chance bit of gossip aTniost''resultcd In a baseball exposure thai might have rivaled the White Sox. scandal. The fad that a eporU writer happened lo hear the remark led to an .Investigation into the conduct of an important scries. When, the ' reporter -was colled to 'the 'stand and asked to reveal what ho knew he refused to talk. But from time to time there were unwholesome rumors about the part. Mays had played in certain important games. Has His Own War . Mays had one of the best yeara 1 Ills career in 1921 when he led he American League pitchers. De- pitc the fact thtit lie was working under a three-year contract, he el It bo known to his owners Hint le considered he was worth more noney to the Yankees than he vns being paid. Several years bc- 'ore that he had brought about i serious controversy when he reused to pitch for the Boston Kec Sox any longer, declaring he wished to be traded to the New York Yankees. It wa» with the Yankees he finally landed, too, after suspension by President Ban Johnson failed to move him. Then there was the unforUm«t< Incident of tho ilc.ith of Ray Chap man, tho Cleveland shortstop. Chapman was killed by ft ball pitched by Mays In tho heat of the peiinaiit race of 1920. A movement was started to have the 'submarine ; hurlcr banned from the game. As.we remember it, a great deal depended upon what Trls Speaker said of the affair, as . It had been charged Mays was'pur- posely "dusting off", the Cleveland batters during the game in which Clmpraan was killed. Speaker, rising 0 the occasion, declared the sad event the. result, of an accident, Mays kept on .pitching anil. Ilghl- ng.
