Hatkell Billings Hat No Trouble Winning First Game While Rufus Smith, Another Brown Recruit, Hurls Eight Innings of Nightcap. ' BY HARRY BULLION. SO far as baseball goes, Navin field won't have any attraction for fandom until next spring, when, with the oft-repeated promises, another' season will be ushered in. Yesterday, in the presence of a fair sized crowd considering the fact that nothing was at stake, the Tigers drew the lid on the 1927 cam-" paign by beating the Indians in two games, 11 to 5 and 5 to 4. What the Tigers did was, however, second in importance to the brilliant finish Harry Heilmann made pionship with AI SimniDns, Philadelphia outfielder and slugger. If the figures retain their celebrated veracity, Heilmann established himself champion of the American league for the fourth time. In nine official trips to the plate the giant right fielder of the Bengals made seven hits, two homers, three doubles and a pair of tingles. His average as the result is J94.80; Simmons, .391.37. One home run in each game fea- . tured his attack on Grant "'M a ,- ,. . 4 , Buckeye in the first and second fra- . rat, respectively. Two doubles and tafe bunt that caught Grant flat-fooled, with the home run, rewarded his efforts in the initial number, and homer, double and single were made off the delivery of the - big southpaw that Manager McCal-lister exposed to Heilmaun's fire in the second game. Heilmann is the only right-hand hitter who ever led . the American league four times. Partisan to Hellmaaa. Br a (trans coincidence, Hell-Snann has won the batting championship ot the league in odd years. His first title was gained In 1921. The next came In 192.3, the follow-Ina- championship In 192a and this one in 1927. Thli year and In l2u, Uia big; Bengal slugger was obliged to go right down to the last day t Insure his triumph. Two years Ago It was while the Tlgrera were playing their final fame In fit. Louie that he arose to the occasion and imashed hia way to the front, then topping Trls Speaker, who, having led the leu (cue for nearly two months, watched Heilmann catch and pass him while he was compelled to remain on the , bench with injuries. In keeping with hl record, Heilmann, then as now, finished the season with a tnark of .394. The fact that the Tlgere won mnue no particular difference except that , the pair of victories put them 11 over the .600 mark, which 1 better 1 by eeven Ramea than tbey did last season. Finishing In fourth pines Is a tribute to Manager Morlarty, , who lifted the Bengala two places In the standing hie first year In the capacity of a major league manager. It wti strictly a partisan crowd that turned In to bid good-bye to the Tlgera until they come up out of the south to start the next campaign six months hence; partisan for Heilmann, who awung hla club ' with vehemence that shook the en- ; my pitchers down to their toes. . 8o wrapped up In the challenge Heilmann wai making for the bat-ting title, the crowd maligned Buckeye several times with choice raspberries when It seemed that he displayed evidence of wUhlng to pass rather than pitch to the hitter. Almost Over A gala, Ot all the seven hits, only one stayed In the Infield, a bant that took Grant so much by surprike that he gaped In astonishment at 1 the rolling ball Instead of making the usual effort to field It. One of the doubles nearly took an ear off Third Baseman Uesat before It handcuffed Langford In left field. One of the home runs took flight over the left field fence, and the other dropped back of the scoreboard. Heilmann had the distance to the feDce measured again in the second . crame, but the blow, colliding no more than two feet below the top of the Intelligence bureau, stayed 1a the field. On his last trip to the plat Harry swung ao hard on a. ball that he fell down and clutched at lils right knee. Teammates helped him to hie feet and he limped to the bench. Nothing was broken but h batting streak, however. Had he bit safely then In- mm m LEN who have mental importance of QUALITY in all thing9 are very naturally attracted to NU-ROY SHOES.

PITTSBURGH. Pa Oct. . (A. P.) There is little to choose in the relative offensive and defensive strength of the Yankee and Pirate Inner cordons, although the American leaguers hold perhaps a slight, edge on form, such as It la revealed by the latest unofficial records. Where, the Bucs are strong on the left side, with Glenn Wright at short and Captain Pie Traynor at third, tli a 1'ankeea appear considerably stronger on the other side, with I.ou Uehrlg at first and Tony Lazzeri at second. Traynor and Gehrig are the out standing pair. The Pirate captain, generally rated the best third aacker in the game, has a big margin over his veteran rival, Joe Rugan, In every department of play. Gehrig, the "Hoy Hunter," also has a record of achievement, especial ly at nut, that outshines the performance of Joe Harris, but it Is largely because the Pirate veteran. after finding National league pitching more to his liking than anything he ever faced, slumped through illness.

Dugan, if his trick knee is in shape, may not be outahnne by hia rival In the field. Harris, too, If he recovers from the stomach trouble that haa been bothering him, may prove as dangerous a batsman as Gehrig, as well as reliable on the defense. Joe has a habit of getting his hits when they are needed moat. The keystone combinations are pretty well matched, although Lasserl and Mark Koenlg, the Yankee pair, boast slightly better marks than George Grantham and Wright, both st bat and afield. Lazzori la steadier than Grantham on the defense, but both are dangerous long distance clouters. Tony has hit more homers, but Grantham has walloped more doubles and triples. i Wright Timely Hitter. Koenlg and Wright are a good deal of the same type, occasionally erratic, but oiten brilliant. Wright has had four years big league experience to Koenlg's two.

Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. X. (A. P.) The Bison production department swung Into full motion today for the first time during the little world series with the Toledo Mud Hens, and as a result, 14,000 baseball fans aw the visitors get the choicest beating of the series when they landed In small end of an I to 1 score. Bullet Joe- Bush, of world's series fume, felt the full fury of the Blsen attack and was slammed from the hillock after facing four batters. Ryan shortly afterwards suffered the same fate, but Mllstead and Winner, who appeared on the scene lu4er, managed to hold the Bisons fairly well in check. The series now stands two to one In favor of the Mud Hens as th cluba prepar.e to move back to Toledo for games on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The game today was played under perfect, mid-summer weather conditions and the stands and bleachers presented a solid array of coatless and hatless fans.

Pittsburgh, Oct. !. (A. P.) Paul Waner, senior member of the fa mous "Waner act" and new batting king of the National league, today enjoyed his first day off of the entire season. It was his last chance for a layoff and he earned it, together with the other Pittsburgh regulars, by helping clinch the pennant yesterday In Cincinnati. It took the Pirates 153 of their 1S4 games to settle the flag issue and Paul didn't miss a single inning of any of them. He is the only regular on the team who has not been out at one time or another during the campaign through 111-ress or injury. A bridegroom of only a few weeks, Paul couldn't get a day off even when he was married. His brother, Lloyd, has only missed a half dosen games. i - Returning from Cincinnati today with nine other regulars, Paul said it was "Just luck" that he won this year's batting crown. But there were at least two co-workers, Coach Jewel Ens and Pitcher Ray Kramer, who proclaimed loudly their preseason predictions had been fulfilled by the elder of the "poison brothers." t Paul Is the first left handed batsman to lead the National league In eight years. Bubbles Hargrave, of Cincinnati, 1928 champion, and Rogers Hornsby, king for six previous years, both bat' from the starboard side. Ed Roush, In 1919, was the last left hander to ton the list.

TEAM'S SPIRIT IS HIGH Players Realize Strength of Rivals, But Are Confident of Final Result. Pittsburgh, Oct. I. (A. P.) The momentum that ha carried the Pittsburgh Pirates to victory In on of the closest and moat exciting races of National league history, plus the skill of a pitching corps that has performed brilliantly over the last month with few exception!, will be the deciding factors. If the Corsairs beat the New Tork Yankees In the world's serin starting Wednesday at Forbes field. This at any rate Is the opinion ot Owen (Donie) Bush, aggressive little pilot who has steered the Pirates to a pennant In his first season. There are not a few critics, even among the home town experts, who believe the Pirates '"staggered" into the pennant, that tile reaction of their hard fight will be a detriment rather than an aid and that the Yankees, anyway, pack entirely toe much punch for the National leaguers to check. Spirit Isn't Lacking; But If there Is any lack nf spirit or of confidence in the Pirates, It wasn't evident In the romatks of Bush shortly after his club had won the deciding game In Cincinnati. Neither was It noticeable in the enthusiastio band or 10 regulars who came back to Pittsburgh today, foregoing the final battle la Cincinnati. Bush and his men are not overconfident. They do not under estimate the Yankees. But neither are the Pirates awed by the fact that the - Yankees, coasting into their own pennant, are rated by many competent critics as one of the greatest teams of all time, an outfit that will unquestionably enter the series favored to win by a majority of experts. The Pirates are jaunty enough to believe that any club emerging at the top of , such a hectic pennant battle as the National league has had this year will take cars ef Itself on any field. Can Be Stopped. "The Yankee sluggers can be stopped." Bush declares. "That has been demonstrated before. Maybe we won't check them all, but ws will stop half nf their attack and slow up the rest."
