Betting at the Ball Games.
No one takes serious objection to
a little unobtrusive betting at ball
games, or any where else, but the
open and flagrant breaking of the
gambling laws as practiced by some
recently at the games here should
Ih3 suppressed for the good of the
sport, if nothing else.
Back on the mainland, all the
managers of the big leagues have
taken matters into their own hands,
and have insisted that betting at
the games must be stopped. Of
course bets will be made, but the
open and boisterous betting as form
erly practiced has been squelched. It
should be stopped here, else the
game itself will loose all the flavor
of sport and also loose the patronage
of people who go there for the sake
of the sport itself, and not to be pre
sent in a gambling ring.
