Amateur Commission Receives Report of Rules Committee
RULES COMMITTEE BAR
Recommends that Players Who Have Been with
Salaried Clubs in Past Two Years Be
Eliminated from Ranks.
By X. T. WOIttET.
Strongly urging the adoption of a rule
prohibiting men who have played with
3rofessional clubs In the past two years
from participating in games under the
itmateur baseball commission of the Dis
trict of Columbia, the rules committee
appointed by that body recently made its
;report last night at a meeting held at
(Spalding's store in Fourteenth street.
When President Bob Young called the
feneeting to order every available bit of
tepace was occupied by representatives
rot -various local baseball organizations
tend every league was represented offl
icially. The report of the committee, which
fvas receied and accepted, makes fle
As announce! earlier in the week ex
clusively In The Washington Herald, the
first suggestion submitted was in re
gard to the division of the leagues into
two classes. Sections A and B, at the
rbeginnlng ot the season instead of at
the end of the jear This suggestion
was made with tho idea of getting the
Itwo sections on a working basis at the
fetart of the season so that plans could
be made gradually for the plajing off of
the post-season series
Suggestion No. 2 does away with the
frule which provides for a time limit in
rwhich to try a plaver accused of ac
cepting money for plajing baseball. The
committee recommended that no time
'"be set for the trial of accused plajers,
fbut that the whole matter be left to the
discretion of the commission
In the past considerable trouble has
rbeen caused in an attempt to live up to
the rule which is now in force, which
i provides for the trial of a player within
seentj-two hours Often It has been im
posslble to get a quorum of the commis
sion together within a week, and the re
sult has been the continued -violation of
Professionals to Be Excluded.
The third suggestion made was the one
"which caused all the managers to set up
b. howl. It bars out any player who has
plavcd with a team in organized baseball
within the past two jears. Most of the
nnanagers would be hurt we-e this put into
I effect, although it is admitted to be a
Just and proper rule if Washington is to
have clean amateur baseball
The writer does not believe the rule will
(be adopted as reported, because it would
unaoupteaiv mean tne DreaKlng up of the
amateur commission into two fac -
lea-iing the balance of pow er
with the faction opposed to the rule
How eve' the line between amateurism
and professionalism is fairl and squarely
idrawn and there is no getting around the
rfact that the commission will have to go
-on record for one thing or the other
amateur or professional baseball
President Page, of the Suburban
League, expressed himself as being op
posed to the adpotlon of this rule, stat
ing that he be!ieed it would work al
hardship upon many of those players who
have left town to get a trjout with pro
fessional clubs and who may fall to
make good and will then return to Wash-
ngton To bar these men out of ama
teur baseball when they return to their
-home city would be rank injustice, ac
cording to the view of the Suburban
Xeague head, and he was backed up by
the Na Yard manager and several
others who took part in the discussion.
Provision four stipulates that only the
presidents of leagues in Section A, or
their authorized representatives, shall
vote upon matters pertaining to that
section, and that the same shall apply
to Section B This wai considered in
connection with rule 1, which pro
vides for the division of the clubs by
tho 1st of ApriL There was considerable
difference of opinion last night as to
the advisability of adopting this sug
gestion, but it will probably be carried
with a few alterations
On t law Organizations Blacklisted.
The last article of the report deals
Tilth the invitations to new leagues to
ofhliat w th the amateur commission It
provides that whenever a new league is
rorcanized the amateur commission shall
invite it to affiliate with the commission,
and if the invitation is refused, will
have the power to place the league on
the black, list, and bar out the players
from games in leagues under the com-
Capt C E Edwards, president of the
.Marquette League, advocated the adop
tion of a rule to prevent the indiscrim
inate jumping of teams from one league
to another after the leagues have been
He stated that the leagues were en
titled to protection, and that they looked
1c the amateur commission for it. This
rratter was referred to the rules com
mittee for the framing Of a suitable
rule covering the subject.
During the discussion of this amend
ment to the constltuion, a clash occurred
between the Marquette League leader
and C C Love, who is president of the
Columbia 101 Athletic Association Mr
Love thought Capt. Edwards was taking
a roundabout whack at his team, and
asked President Young for the privilege
of making an explanation, but he was
ruled out of order
Letters were read from A G Spalding
end A J Reach, sporting goods firms, re
garding the adoption of a ball or balls
to be used b the leagues affiliated with
the commission In connection with the
report of the committee on balls The
committee recommended the adoption of
both bails by tho commission, with the
leagues retaining the privilege of using
either make. The Suburban, Independ
ence, and Commercial leagues went on
( record as being opposed to the adoption
of any one ball, declaring they would
rather attend to the matter themselves.
After a lengthy discussion this was laid
, on the table and will be considered at
tbe next meeting.
Election of n board of arbitration was
,laid over until the next meeting by unani
A letter was read from the Indepen
i denee League, announcing the election
of A. W. Hoarkes as president
Applications for the position of inn-
lire In the leagues under the amateur
commission were filed by J. E. Hasa and
Bills In th hands of the) secretary were
approved for payment, and the secretary
was furnished with & list of the officials
cf all the leagues.

Team, O to L
In rather cold baseball weather, Kpisco
pal High won the first game of its season
this afternoon from Bliss Electrical
School of Washington by the score of
9 to 1.
The game was slow and uninteresting.
Episcopal High hitting the visiting pitcher
almost at will, while the three twirlers
for the home team were practically in
vincible. Withers, who started for the Episcopal
High, was hit by the first man up for a
clean single, but after this he was not
touched. Dusenberry and Cooke both
showed good speed and were only hit
Phillips, the first man up for Episcopal,
walked, stole second, and came home on
an error by Cason. In the fifth inning
Episcopal scored seven runs by bunching
hits and taking advantage of many ers
ror. Bliss scored their only run in the ninth,
when Chopin reached first by a clean
hit, stole second, and came home on
Kinsolving played the best ball for
Episcopal, both at the bat and in the
field. Chopin showed up best for Bliss,
getting two of their hits. Score:

Amateur Editor Tho Washington Herald.
Dear sir: Concerning the ru
mors circulated through the me
dium of a local paper, to the ef
fect that the contemplated Dis
trict League Is to be run as an
outlaw organization, in conflict
with the local amateur baseball
commission, I desire to state that
no such Intention has been ex
pressed, directly or Indirectly, by
the board of directors of the so
called District League.
This league Is now in the
course of organization, and in
its incomplete state, it is not in
a position to take up the matter
of joining the amateur commis

has been granted franchises, the
District League will then take
prompt action in considering the
matter of seeking admission to
the amateur commission

Trounce Georgetown Reserves In
Mvatfeat, 19 to 0.
The Naval Medical School baseball
team jesterdav defeated the Georgetown
Unlversltj Reserves on the Medicos
plajing field, to the tune of 19 to 0
The Hilltop nine had to contend with
the disadvantage of placing on a strange
diamond, and this caused them to make
thirteen errors, nearly a'J of which flg
urede In the score.
Up to the fifth Inning it was any one',
game, but in the sixth the Sailors sallev
:nto the slants of Walsh foi a triple, tw
cxubles, and two singles, putting the
game on ice After thit it was a mat
ter of quantity, and free bitting, daring
base-running, and taking advantage of
the fact that the Georgetown boys were
looking on the game a farce, kept
the runs coming over the pan
For the Medicos, Havdcn put up a
great game with his stick, driving five
men over the plate. Lawrence, at sec
ccd, played the best game in the field,
handling his fourteen chances without a
semblance of an error. For the Hill
toppers, Lamberton was the big noise
with his willow, smashing out five
safeties, all of the clean-cut variety
Martin, at third, put up a most remark
able game, having eleven assists and
three put-outs to his credit. Score.

Takes Fut.Game from Randolph-
SpecU toTho Washinjton Herald.
Manassas, Va,, March 25. The base
ball season at Eastern College was
opened here to-day under favorable
weather conditions, save for a little
northwestern wind which chilled the
spectators when the game lagged. Randolph-Macon
Academy, one of the strong
est preparatory school teams m the
State, was Eastern's first opponent, and
went down to the tune of 10 to 3.
Dr. H. TJ. Roop, president of Eastern
College, tossed the first ball for Eastern
and thus opened the season.
The game was marked by checkered
and bonehead plays on both sides, but.
considering that It was the first game
for both teams, and so early in the sea
son, nothing better could be expected.
