"My Worst Blunder" In which big
leaguers describe first hand the
jous bonehead plays of history ,is run
ning in several ot the eastern pap srs
now. Jimmie Lavender, who jumped
k-to fame by breaking Rube Mar
quaru's winning streak, thinks the
worst blunder that can be made is to
disobey instruction from the bench.
This is his story:
The worst mistake that I recall
since I have been playing professional
ball was in thinking that the man
ager's order didn't gow hen there was
a chance to make a play. You know,
a lot of times a young player disobeys
orders when he doesn't mean to do it
at all. but makes the break because
te'lieveB tne manager would want
him to changp the play under the new
circumstances. It was that way wT.i
n e. It was a- simple little play agd
one that passed almost unnoticed ex- j
cept by the manager. It happened j
this way. There were men on ur-: j
and second bases, and no one out. ar.l I
I was pitching to Providence. We all
expected a sacrifice, and as we were
o runs to the good I figured on ?1e!l
ing the bunt to third bate. Ttn rtiaTi
aper came to me and said, "If he bunts
to you. shoot to first." I thought ne
was afraid of me making a bad play
., third. The ball was bunted toward
third base. I was on it in a secon.l
and shot to third, forcing the runner
there. I thought it was a swell ,lav.
The batter who came up hit a th-ee-bag'T
and tied the score. Some ou
hit him home, or he got there on :m
error, and we were beaten. The nii'ii
igr called me for making the piay to
third. I argued that the play was
right. Then he explained that the
hatter who made the three-base TTlt
was the man he feared most, as he
was a clean up hitter. He wanted me
to throw to first, make sure of retiring
the batter on the sacrifice, and ihcn
pass the long hitter, believing that the
srsfer play. When I threw the runner
out at third he figured on taking a

family, sent the kid out, an din aqven
months he fought thirty battles, in
eluding six and ten-round bouts with
Tommy Carey, Tommy LangdOn,
Young Brown, Leach Cross, Knockout
Brown, Young Erne and Ad Wolgast.'
The latter was the only opponent
able to score a knockdown. -
When we stop to think of what oth
er great fighters were doing at the age
of 18 we pull in a long breath. Joe

"prelims" at night; Fitzsimmons was
helping a blacksmith; Bat Nelson was

The result was a triple. If 1 had fol

it never would have been made, and
the ball that was fumbled by the . in
fielder, who was playing close, would
have resulted in a double. He had
figured it corectly and safely the first
time, and If I had obeyed orders we
would have won the game by two runs
instead of losing it by one. But regard
less of the reiult it was up to me; to
make the play the way it was tptired.

walian team of Orientals lost to tho
local United States Leaguers, 8 to 6
in a game that uncovered some bill

Chinese made a brilliant rally in their
half of the ninth which netted two
runs, three clean hits' in a row off
Joe Bradshaw threatening to topple
that popular flinger from his perch.
The rally ended when Daly snagged
a'passed third strike on Sing Hung
and threw him out at first.
Two passes and a fielder's choice
gave the Honolulu players the first
count of the game and they breezed
along until the third, when an error

The Chinese players put up a stiff
