Pitcher Jack Chesbro Uncorked Wild Heave To Lose'04 Pennant When the money's down nnd the game Is for blood a manager leada with his ace. And that's the way R was when Clark Griffith sent Jack Chesbro out to beat the Boston Keel Sox .that fall afternoon in 190-1. GrllTlth wasn't running his Washington Senators then. He was managing the New York Highlanders —the same outfit that later became the Yankees. And the old Fox was close to the pennant—very close. He was down to the last day of the season. And he could win the pennant by beat- Ing the Red Sox in both end» of a doublcheader between the highlanders und the Sox that day. And if Griff's tenm didn't cop both games the sox would take the flag'homo ,to Boston. The whole pennant race had boiled down to that tense afternoon. The big prize was thereto be won or lost. And Grifllth named Jack Chesbro to pitch the llrst game. Griff knew that if he lost the first game winning the .second wouldn't help, 'He sent his best man out there to pick up the marbles. . . . Chesbro was the best pitcher in the American league that year. He was a big, sandy-complexioncd, easy-going guy. But on the Held he was tough—and he was a stayer, "t They called him Happy Jack— and lie make Griff happy during i _. that season. Ho was pretty close to being a one-man ball club. Jac-k took his rubber arm to the mound so often 'Ihat year that he set a lesiguc record for the number of complete games lie pitched —the number was 48. And while he was at i:l. he hung up a new record for victories—ihc put 41 of Uhosc Ifi'to his book while he worked -in 55 games.

This V That By DUKE KA/LAUSKAS (Sports Kilitor) A man doesn't have to be a champion to make n. splash with the fans. If he's game, j colorful, and a hard-luck fellow, he's likely to get a bigger hand thnn the chumps. And that's the kind of "a fighter that Billy Petrolic was. A boxer who never won a title, but who, even after 30-years out of the cauliflower, business, is .still A-onc with- Madison Square Garden fans. He made an appearance a month ago, the night Henry Armstrong kayocd Al Davis, nnd the fans brought clown the rafters. Petrolic —the Fargo Express—still had his old appeal. 1 The littl.e slugger, who made his llrst Garden appearance 18 years sigo. won New York's heart, when he lost the light. He was fighting Sammy Vogcl, and though he floored the Harlcmitc several times in the last tour innings, he lost the decision—and won I,ho fans hearts —they jeered and booed, but the decision stood. And Petrolic was made as far as Garden popularity counted. ' Then too, the fighting lightweight was picturesque. He was dark, ot Italian-American, descent, and he invariably stalked up to the rinjf wrapped in 'ii colorful Indian blanket. And his -monnikcr was ;.x natural — Fargo .Express. Especially after his manager, ..;i born showman, superim- .posed-. Petrolle's likeness in the headlight of the Fargo Express— .a famous train in the northwest advertising circulars. Petrolic was a lighter through and 1 through. lie had a dangerous left hook and was anxious to use it. His lights were always tense and tight. And though he never copped.a, title he beat three titleholders, ' But anyone who saw him fight, will remember the Fargo Express —a game lighter who never got the right 'break.
