BOX IN THE OUTFIELDERS AND

WILLIE KEELER, NEW YORK AMERICAN LEAGUE TEAM'S GREAT OUTFIELDER AND HITTER, DE
CLARES LONG RUNNING CATC HES AND SENSATIONAL LONG DISTANCE THROWS TO THE PLATE.

RIED OUT BY THE RULE MAKERS.

By W. H. Keeler,
Right Fielder and Leading Batter of the New York American League Team.
There are few men Identified with the national came who
enjoy greater reputations than Willie Keeler. He la one of the
greatest outfielders In the game, and his work In the right garden
baa been marked with sensationalism. At the bat he Is al
ways found among the first three or four sluggers throughout
the season. His opinion on the suggestion to "box In" the out
fielders, which was made by a Pacific coast magnate recently. Is
Taluable as coming from the angle of Tlslon of a great fielder
base ball man
ager on the Pa
cific coast some
time ago advo
cated a new
wrinkle to limit
the fielder in
h i s capturing
of fly balls.
From what I
have heard, this manager proposes to place the
fielder in a circumscribed position, boxing him
as n kit iiiivj auwu ca ai v; U3(U a
to define the coachers boxes,
from which position he may
not move until the ball is hit
by the batter.
In my posi
tion as an out
fielder and a
batter of some
skill, an opinion
on this question
'' concerns me in
As a batter I
would naturally like to handicap the
As a fielder I would naturally
want all the advantages possible for
the man on the grass.
But I do not agree with the man
who advocates the limitation of the
fielder's activity. Head work is as
much a part of a good outfielder's
endeavor as it is in those who play
other positions on a team.
The men behind the base lines
play for each particular batter. We
know them and occupy certain po
sitions, prior to their possible hit
ting of the ball, with re
lation to where they may
If compelled to over
look this and play for
each batter alike, it would
destroy one of the best features of base ball
the difficult running catch.
Take, for instance, Lajoie at the bat. lie is
a hard driver and long-distance hitter. If I, as
a fielder, were compelled to play close in, it
would be impossible to run back far enough to
get the ball when he hit it.
It would be a very interesting question to
find where our friend from the coast would
place these boxes in the outfield. If he put
them far out, we wouldn't get the short hits
that drop behind the base line and too far out
for the basemen to field. If they were placed
too far in, we couldn't run back to get long
hard hit drives.
Another thing that would militate against
such a proposition as this would be the diffi
culty in obeying it. The whitewash lines would
be quickly rubbed out and the umpire would
have difficulty in watching the fielder and com
pelling him to remain within the circumscribed
I am certainly not in favor of anything that
would add to the umpire's troubles. He has
enough as it is. Every player's hand is natur
ally against this unfortunate individual, and if
this scheme of boxes was adopted it would re
sult in all kinds of conflict between that offi
cial and the fielders or the batters. ,
Having to watch men on bases
when the ball is struck and then
note that the fielder does not
leave his fenced-in position until
the ball is hit would certainly
prove a Chinese puzzle to the ar-
One of the beauties
of base ball is the
long throw to the
plate. The fielder
never, if he can pos
sibly avoid it, relays
the ball on a close
play when a runner is
about to score.
If the fielder
ped to the ex
he would not
get as . many
long hits as he
now does and
that would eliminate from the game consider
able of this throwing.
From my point of view I think, when you
take into consideration the ground covered by
three men for all the directions in which a long
hit ball will take, the outfielder, as at present
working, has no pink tea of it.
There are some fans who think the outfield
er's position is a lesser one on the diamond. It
is nothing of the kind. Herman Long, the old
Dutchman whom everybody knows, once saiil
when he was playing short, that the outfielders
were only spectators anyway. But then goo l
