Editor "Thk Garden Island"
Having read the protest of the
Waimea Baseball Team, published
in your issue of July 30th. I will
appreciate it if you will allow me
space in vour paper to reply to
With regard to the first section
of the protest, involving a decision

steal, would say that this decision
was not mine. L was umpiring at
the plate during that inning. The
base umpire called the runner out
and any claim of blocking that
runner was.naturally up to the base
In reply to the second part of
the protest, which claims a balk
on the part of the Lihue pitcher,
I will say that several statements
contained therein are absolutely in
correct. To quote the letter: "
" With Waimea at the bat and
first base occupied, the Lijiue
oitcher deliberately and intention-

ball to the bat, but failed to do, so

side of his box, was facing first

claimed, and I immediately render

indicating that the play was not a

given immediately and clearly un
derstood, then I will ask what

members of the Waimea team to

The protest further states that

out on a field in front of 20,000

So that's the job, is it?' replied
the man of courage, and broke in

Rule 34, Section five, doej not

Any motion in delivering the

"delivered to the bat," therefore
the rule cannot apply.
Messrs. Cox and De Costa are
wrong in part of their contention
as contained in next to the last
paragraph of their letter, to wit:
We respectfully contend that
Rule 30 clearly defines the pitcher's
position, and Rule 34, Section 5
prohibits a pitcher from making a
motion to pitch the ball while not
in this position."
The rule referred to reads: Any
motion in delivering the ball etc."
It dots not say, Any motion to

stated in the letter. Therefore, as

He made no offer or attempt to
produce the book, so after a
reasonable time, I ordered him off
the field and called the ball into
play. To the best of my knowledge
he and all other members of the
Waimea team were off the diamond
when play was resumed. It was
not until the following inning that
a rule book was produced and the

rule referred to in summing up the

their point are rather slight. I
