HOW CUB CATCHER PpOTECTS
HIS HANDS DURING GAME.

Veteran Player—Seldom Both-
ered With Stonebruiaea.
Jimmy Archer, as long a he ha«
been with the Chicago Cub team, has
been rather conservative about his
method of catching ao cleverly behind
the plate. U has not been because
he doea not want youngsters or other
catchera to learn hia secrets.

art of working behind the batter he la

and all the recruits who have ever
been on the team since Archer has
been on it have learned the finer
points of the work, writea Oacar C
Reichow in Chicago Daily News. He
has taught ••Hubbies" Hargrave a lot
this spring, and that youngster 1b now
one of the best prospects the Cuba
have had In some years.
In the springtime moBt catchers are
troubled with stonebruises ou their re
celvlng hands because of the tender
ness of the fleBh after a winter of Idle-
ness. Archer, when he began catch-
ing. found a scheme to avoid brulnes
uf that nature, but never revealed his
method to his teammates because he
thought they hod systems of their
own This spring, however, he ac-
quired a stonebrulse, and it is the first
one he haB had in years, and it was
due mostly to an accident.
While watching batting practise at
Cincinnati he was hit on the fingers
with a foul tip. To avoid hurting his
digits more he stuck his hand deep
into his mitt and caught the ball in
the palm of his right hand This was
contrary to his method. As he has
only an extremely thin padding on his
glove the bruise resulted and when

When the big liner docked, several |
Fed leaders were waiting at the gang-
plank to buttonhole the unsigned big j
leaguers as they came off the ship.
A Fed manager singled out Crawford
in the throng and set out to reach his
ear. Between him and Crawford sev-
eral women were standing.
The Fed magnate did not wait for a
chance to walk around them, nor did
he ask them to let him walk through
to see Crawford. No, as soon as he
; spied Crawford, he plunged into the
midst of the little group of women,
j football fashion, and with a sort of
breast-stroke swimming movement of
his arms, swept them aside and sidled
J up to Crawford to whisper something I

in his ear. But Crawford had seen
the act out of the corner of his eye.
"Don't you talk to me, you rowdy
bum!" he exclaimed as he shoved his
big right hand In the Fed's mid-section
and jammed him with a bang up
against the iron railing. Only the
fact that BO many people were pres-
ent, including Crawford's wife, pre-
vented him from showing the objec- |

manner what he thought of a man that

he catches now the pounding of the
ball into the center of his glove gives
him considnrable pain. When his
hand is well he does not insert It into
the mitt more than half way and
catches the ball practically on his fin-
ger tips, which avoids all possibility
, of getting a stonebmise, which 4s a
I source of much annoyance to catch-
Archer's way of catching the ball in
i his fingers accounts for the steadi-
ness with which he holds the ball at
the plate. As soon as the ball strikes
| the center of his huge mitt his fingers
i close tightly over it. thereby prevent-
! ing its dropping out. His trick of
using his fingers instead of the palm
i of his hands also accounts for his tin-
failing ability to catch foul fly balls.
| Fans have seen catchers go back to
1 the stand for fouls only to see them
[ strike the glove and bounce out again.
Archer seldom drops one, as his fin-
\ gers grip the ball viselike as soon as
the ball hits, no matter how difficult
The star Cub backstop did not have
an error credited to him all last sea-
son for dropping a foul fly. Like all
crnat catchers, he seems to know in-
tuitively where the ball goes after
leaving the bat. As the ball goes up
back of the plate his mask is thrown
off and he has plenty of time to got
under the ball and generally makes all
the catches look easy.
Archer was not exempt from blun-
ders last season, but they were due
♦o wild pegs to the bases. He did not!
drop a ball at the plate all the year,
which is also a point in favor of his
method of catching with the big glove.
