THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1021
- SPORTS -
That much discussed tjaina between
the Makees and Mctfrydes was played
at Eleele on Sunday and contrary to
expectations, It was nn of the poor
est ,lf not the poorok gtm3 of Hip
season put up by either team. Tho
Makees were on top , and incidentlly
managed to smash MoBryde's n-eon)
of not having lost a game on their
home ground this year. Can anyone
suy that a game played by tno two
leading teams on Kauai In Ahkn the
winning team made eleven errors and
the losers nine, would bp called a good
game even In this section of tht. Ha
waiian lBlands? Applying tiction 11
of Rule 85 which says "nor can any
run be earned after the fielding sido
has failed to accept chances to re
tire the side," we find that not a
single run was earned by either team
during the game. Tilly allowed seven
Bcoring him. Tilly singled, sending
hits, struck out 5 and walked 4,
Cummings gave out six hits, walked
four and struck out but one.
The Makees opened the second In
ning by scoring five runs after two
down. With King fanning, and Rod
rigues going out, pitcher to first, Mor
ita coaxed a pass from Tilly, and
when Cummings was hit by Tilly, he
advanced to second. Morita was
caught between second and third and
was a dead out, but Spalding dropped
the ball and Morita reached third.
Doi singled but Spalding dropped the
ball and Morita reached third. Dol
singled to right and Cummings and
Morita tallied, Dol going to third when
'Gabriel overthrew the first station.
Ahana went to first for being hit by
Tilly and Hee singled, scoring Doi.
Tsunehiro tripled to left center and
Ahana and Hee scored .the batter be
ing out at the plate trying to stretch
the hit into a home run. Another three
runs were presented to them in the
fourth. Morita and Cummings got thru
on errors. Dol filed to right and Mor
ita was the victim of the hidden ball
trick. Ahana singled and scored Cum
mings. Hee hit a Babe Ruth between
Watase and J. Perriera, scoring him
self. Makee's last run came in the
sixth when Morita got on through an
error, went to third on an out and
scored on Dot's sacrifice fly.
McBryde scored two in the third.
Ed. Watase walked and went to sec
ond on a sacrifice. He was caught be
tween third and second, but Rodrl
gues threw wild. Spalding singled,
scoring him. Tilly scored, sending
Spalding to third. Antone Perriera
raised a fly to center and Spalding
scored after the catch. In the fifth
Rodrigues and Ahana presented Tilly 1
with another. Soong, Tsunehiro and
Ahana presented another run to Mc- j
Bryde in the seventh, and in the ninth
when Ahana booted Tilly's grounder
with two down, George Watase scor
ed McBryde's last run.

INDOOR BALL GAMES
The following games of lndoorball
were played last Sunday with their
All Chauffeurs, 6, vs. Lihue Store,
Lihue Hotel, 9, vs. All Chauffeurs,
Kapaia, 0, vs. Puhi, 3.
Kenneth Hee and Doi were the
fielding and batting stars of the day.
Doi got two singles and accepted a
couple of hard chances while Hee
made several hard stops and catches
and got three hits including a home
King in left field made one of the
finest Catches seen during this sea
son. Ako's drive in the fourth was
low and on a line, but King dived for
it, rolled over once and came up with
the ball clutched in his hand.
George Watase was certainly a poor
looking shortstop for McBryde, boot
ing four out of his nine chances.
Soong was accidentally struck on
the left hand by Ako's bat in the sec
ond inning, and although the blow
must have been quite painful, he
showed his gameness by sticking it
out. Incidentally, Umpire Sanborn er
red when he refused to allow Ako his
base on an interference by Soong.
Rodrigues, Ahana and Tsunehiro
were the "Btarless" fielders of the
day, making 8 errors among them
selves. We hope that these errors will
clean up their accumulated surplus so
that they will not have any to spare
As usual Tilly pitched a rather good
game, although a bit unsteady, four
walks are rather unusual for him, but
as his support was equally poor, no
doubt he let up a bit to be on a par
Doi was rather unlucky as two of
his long hits were hauled by Ako in
deep right. Had the game been played
in Kapaa, the right field fence would
have prevented the two catches, giv
ing Doi four hits in four trips to the
That the McBryde diamond la one
of the worst on Kuuai to play base
ball on was clearly demonstrated on
Sunday. The McBryde players may
be used to the bumps In the infield
and uphill playing in the outfield, but
they erred nine times to tho Makee's
Joseph Rodrigues is the peer of all
first basemen on the island today, but
taking too much for granted will not,
we are sure, bring him any additional
glory. Playing the game for the
game's sake, and not trying to settle
petty grievances will help a whole lot
to raise the standard of the game cn
Kauai. Joe is destined to be a still
better player, but his eccentricities
ought to be eliminated.
NO GAME NEXT SUNDAY
At a meeting of the Makee team
held on Saturday evening at the Ka
pa school, the members voted not to
play the All-Kauai team until after the
return from Maui. A date will be la
ter set for this game as the boys de
sire to have a rest before undertaking
the Maul trip.
MAKEE TEAM TO COMPETE
ATTHE MAUI FAIR
Arrangements have been completed
by James M. Spalding of Kealia to
send the Makee team, 1921 champ
ions Of Kauai, to compete in the In
ter island baseball series to be held
during the Maul county fair beginning
October 13. This trip is a reward to
the boys by Mr. Spalding for their
good work In winning the champion
ship two years in succession.
Players to make the trip Include
the following: Pitchers, Cummings,
Lee Shin, Tilly (of McBryde) and Mit
sumoto of Lihue; catchers, Soong,
and Fugitani; first baseihen, Holt,
Rodrigues and Souza; second base
men, Ahana, Tsunehiro; shortstop,
Bun Hee; third, K. Hee; outfielders,
Yoshlda, Morita, King, Dol, Arcia,
Palmeira and Vlveros; sub catcher, J.
Perrelra; mascot, A. Rodrigues;
scorer J. Teraoka; manager, Henry
Sheldon. Bun Hee and Yoshlda are
In Honolulu and will join the team
there. Reinforced with Tilly and Mit
sumoto on the mound, Bun Hee In
the infield and Yoshlda in the out
field, the Makees constitute a great
combination and ought to at least
break even while away.
The team sails from Nawiliwill on
Saturday, October 8, arriving in Ho
nolulu on Monday to take the "Kl
lauea'' on the same day for Lahalna.
Five days will be spent on Maul. They
leave Maui on Saturday, October 15,
and arrive back here on Tues., Octo
ber 18. It is probable that a game or
two might be arranged to be played
in Honolulu during the stop over, this
depending upon the showing made by
the team while on Maul.
A track and field team will also
compete if such events are to bo held
and applications have already been
sent to enter a Kauai team. For sprint
ters the team will consist of Bun
Hee, K. Hee, Yoshlda, Rodrigues and
Tsunehiro. The relay team with Bun
Hee, Yoshlda and K. Hee and Tsune
hiro will be a hard one to beat. For
broad Jumping and high Jumping, Har
vey Holt will shine and Joaquin Per-
reira is expected to compete in shot
putting and other weight throwing
events. . . ;
LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE
BAT PILIK1A SETTLED
American Sports Publishing Co.,
New York, Sept. 7, 1921.
W. H. Tilly,
My Dear Sir:
Your letter in regard to the bat
arrived in New York in advance of
the bat. The latter has finally reach
ed its destination after its long Jour
ney, and I have examined it thorough
ly, sawing It and separating It.
It is my impression that this bat
Is perfectly legal. I should so rule it
In case a decision were to come up
in the States on a similar point. There
Is nothing in the rule which says that
a bat may not be plugged or that It
may hot be made of two pieces of
wood or three for that matter.
The rule reads "entirely of hard
wood, except that for a distance of
13 inches the bat may be wound
The bat which you sent me is made
entirely of hardwood. The plug which
runs some distance through the bat
is as hard as the shell of the bat. If
there were metal behind the plug it
would be different and the bat might
be thrown out, but there is none. It
conforms to the four words "entirely
My Impression is that this bat is
one of several which were manufac
tured by the firm of A. G. Spalding &
Bros., as experiment. Opinion prevail
ed that more elasticity and resiliency
could be given to a bat if it were bor
ed out and a plug inserted. An ear
nest effort was made to provide even
a better bat than the Spaldlngs bad
been making, but after repeated trial
it was finally decided that the plug
did not add anything to the spring
of the wood and that It was hardly
worth while to continue along the
lines which they were trying to de-

velop as they were adding to the
process of manufacture without vis!
When I was a boy I know I often
heard that a plug of wood In a bat
was a good thing and I presume that
it was something, along this line
which resulted In the experiment.
In any event the bat which you
sent to me would pass muster. If
such a bat were used in a game I am
sure that It would not make the
slightest difference In batting.
There Is no penalty against using
an illegal bat in a game. If an um
pire were satisfied that a bat were
illegal he could Insist that it be
thrown out as he would throw a ball
which did not meet specifications. Um
pires have refused to permit players
to bat with willow bats because they
are not hardwood, although I am
doubtful at that if they were quite
In conclusion I .beg to say that my
opinion in the matter must stand as
previously noted that the bat came
within the requirements of the rules
and was perfectly legal. The plug
could not have affected the Impact of
the ball against the bat in any way.
As a matter of fact I am under the
impression that a player would be per
mitted to lighten his bat if he desired
to do so. In reality he would weaken
its fiber but I can see no objection to
it so long as no metal would be Intro
