Rickey Advances Formula
For Evaluatinr Bal ayers

G4anF Slaghter Cards,

IFI*S r~6-

NEW YORK (RP-Branch Rickey
has reduced the evaluation of a
whole baseball team and individu-
al player to a mathematical equa-
tion.
The general manager of the
Pittsburgh Pirates has worked out
a revolutionary formula which
shows why pennant winning teams
during the last 35 years have been
successful.
In a bylined story in Life maga-
zine, the 70-odd-year-old father of
the farm system, names his 25
greatest hitters and 12 top pitch-
ers since 1920, and attempts to
prove why through a complicated
mathematical formula.
Some Shockers
Rickey's findings are mostly ex-
pected but some are bound to be
shockers. For instance, Ty Cobb,
regarded by many as the great-
est of all batters, ranks only 23rd
according to the Rickey formula.
Babe Ruth, voted the No. 1 player
of all time in The Associated
Press half century poll several
years ago, is ranked at the top.
The formula, designed to show

what really wins games, is called
by Rickey the most disconcerting
and at the same time the most
consructive thing to come into
baseball.
96 Per Cent Correct
The formula boils down to this
-the team with the widest plus
margin in scoring runs as com-
pared to the giving up of runs
