"was carried on in a low tone. It was
' not audible in the circus seats, -which
were close to first base to accommo
date the monBter crowd present to
see the double-header.
One bleacherite did throw a pop
bottle, but his control was poor. Egan
was not in danger and the offender
-was promptly arrested. Jackson's
words were not responsible for the
bottle throwing, according to witr
uesses.
This is what Johnson calls a riot
Ban is the big boss and usually re
straine'd in his language.
In reality, Birmingham's men are
conducting themselves well on the
field. Third Baseman Olson spiked
Hay Schalk in Cleveland last week,
and there were reports that it was
Intentional. But Ivan went to our
tlandy catcher yesterday before the
.game and assured him it was an un
fortunate accident and appeared to
"be genuinely sorry for the affair. Ray
-evidently didn't think the gash in his
Tmee was inflicted deliberately, for he
?net Olson more than halfway on the
friendly stuff.
In Cleveland during the Boston
series Catcher Nunamaker of the
.Red Sox is reported to have stood
on the third base coaching line and
cursed Olson with great power of
oratory. Olson kept his head until
after the game when he met Nuna
3naker under the grandstand on the
"way to the dressing rooms. They
were far away from the spectators.
Then Olson lit into Nunamaker and
gave him a decisive trimming. This
was the fight that caused so much
talk and which resulted in the par
ticipants being fined hy President
Johnson.
In Boston the Naps wore shin
guards under their stockings. Chap
man left his off the last day.
"These fellows aren't going to pull
any dirty stuff," said the Nap short
stop. "There is no reason for any
of them to spike me."
Chapman was spiked by Catcher
Carrigaa of Boston and has not play-1
ed since. Several other incidents oc
curred which were calculated to
arouse the ire of the. Naps. In spite
of thia they were under perfect con
trol. From an unprejudiced viewpoint,
Birmingham seems to have main
tained tight control over his players
under difficult conditions.
Birmy is going to confer with 41
Johnson while the Naps are in Chi- I
cago, but he said yesterday he would
not start any argument witfT Ban
over the president's criticism. Joe
Jackson will be the topic of conver
sation, as Birmy wants the suspen
sion against the Dixie flyer lifted.
Jackson has been put out of the
game three times since he has been
in the big -league. Each time Egan
was the man who set him down.
Cleveland kicked a game -to the
Sox yesterday after thumping Ed
Walsh for the lead twice. Walsh
didn't have a thing. Against a team
of real sluggers he was helpless. Five
hits and five runs were made off him
in three innings and he was lucky to
hold the score as low as he did. The
failure of Walsh to round to form is
worrying Callahan more than he will
admit. The Sox boss has been giving
vent to optimistic statements about
Walsh, but it is apparent to any ob
server that the spit king is not the
Walsh of old. His speed is not there.
He got by against St. Louis Sunday,
but the Naps are something else
again. So are about four other teams
when it comes to batting.
Ray Schalk, with a triple and two
singles, Berger with a double and sin
gle, and Mattick with a slashing dou
ble were factors in the Sox victory. -
Boots by Cleveland players either
preceded or followed each of these
hits, and the Sox had no trouble roll
ing up a big score. -The Napa did not
play fighting ball They were listless
in the field and Carisch and Lajoie'
loafed after chasing balls which es
caped them. Lajoie made a whole
season's errors in one afternoon,
booting three chances, all of them
