Special Practice Handed Out to Bot
Infield and Outfield by
Georgia Peach
Augusta, 0a., March 17.-Tyrus
Cobb is not going to take his squad of
diamond stars and put them in action
before he has a chance to give them
a few of his ideas. . During the past
two days there has been -rainy weathei
and batting and fielding practice i
prevented but the Tigers have been
kept busy every minute. Yesterday'.
and today's sessions have taken up
special infield and outfield drill. Cobb
has spent most of his time with the
inner circle, showing them the ap-
proved methods of breaking up hit-
and-run plays and double steals. The
old timers, Blue, Rigney, and Jones
didn't take long to get back into the
old system and Del Pratt showed prom-
ise of being as good at it as anyone
with a few days practice. Pratt is an
open eyed player and the Peach banks
on him to help considerably in break-
ing up the base running tricks of thc
other leaguers.
Rip Collins Takes Instructions
The outfielders got their share of
practice throwing to the bases from
their positions in the garden. Cobb
wants tp avoid every chance of a cost-
ly slip' because of want of practic
in throwing in to the basemen. Rip
Collins; the new pitcher from the Red
Sox took a long lesson in throwing
the ballkto the basess, a thing he ad-
mitted he knew nothing about. Be-
fore the afternoon was over he had
good fast throw down to perfection.
If the weather is pleasant this afte-
noon as it promises to be the squad
will be divided up into sides for a
six innings game, the first scrimmage
of the season.
Hot Springs, Ark., March 17.-Both
the .Boston Americans and the Pitts-
burg Pirates took things rather easy
today owing to 'the ot weather. A
short scrimmage between the Red Sox
and their scrubs resulted in a 9-2 win
for the "varsity". A number of long
drives by Johnny Mitchell and McMI-1
lan helped the regulars to win. Mitchel
got a homer, a double, and a single
while his teammate got a triple,. a-
double, and a single. hhnke, holding
down the rubber for the first stringers
held his opponents down to five safe.
The Pirates seemed to feel the hot
weather more than the Sox did and
they limited their activities to a few
limbering up exercises. McKechni
has a crew of experienced warriors
and he would rather risk a slow start
than a chance of growing stale from
.overtraining before the season gets
well started. All of his menare out
of condition and light exercise is on
the program for them during the com-
ing week or ten days.
Intramural Items
After a hard battle with Heilbrunn
and Langlois yesterday in which their7
opponents copped the first two match-
es of the set, Sanchez and Langlois
took on Scarnachia and Langlois in
the finals for the All-campus hand-i
ball doubles championship. The
match will be played at 3 o'clock next
Saturday afternoon on the handball
