oncoming generation engaging In banc
bnll In a purely nmnteur wuy, tho
magmites will he up against It when
the time rolls nrouml to rebuild tenuis.
for there won't be enough talent avail
able to pad a crutch.
It Is reasonable to figure tftnt a
certain per cent of the, players who
hnve their John Hancocks on con
tractB now will return to the game
when pence returns to the world. Vet,
compared with the few who will come
back retaining their old-time efllclen
cy, there will bo dozens of plnycrs In
all cliiHses of leagues who will bo un
able to return to the game. Others
will not return to It because of the
fact that baseball will have lost Its
glamour for them.
Tho big stars the boys like Cobb,
Collins. Sneaker and Alexander who
Miavo been paid enormous salaries,
have laid by enough of this world s
goods to keep them for tho rest of
their days, and they are not coming
back to labor on tho diamond for
greatly reduced salaries, which arc
bound to follow tho war.
For tho same reason n goodly per
cent of tho players who up to u year
or bo ago were the coining cllglbles for
big league Jobs will pass up their base
ball aspirations for other Hues, and
the Incentive for the youngsters will
not be as great.
Unsebull will finally come back as
strong as over, of course, but It will
take time. The powers that bo hung
on ns long as they posslWy could for
this very reason. They foresaw that
ii cessation of operations would bo a
terrlllc body blow. They have said
so many times. , Thcro Is nothing that
could have happened to tho baseball
business which could huvo hurt It
During tho reconstruction period,
which Is going to Involve nearly every
country on the globe, baseball will
have to go through it reconstruction
peilod of Its own, and baseball will
weather tho tough days ahead because
the public will realize what It Is up
against and will be tolerant. ,
No game Is more red-blooded than
baseball as a sport or pastlnir In peace
ful days, and people will want plenty
of red-blooded amusement after the
war Is over. So tho magnates need
not go about hanging crepo on each
other. The future of the game Is
bright enough, and It will bo much bet
ter olT for having gone through tho
lire. This view of the basebnll situa
tion Is of courso contingent only upon
a lengthy continuation of the war.

At tho close of every bnscball

for the season Just closing Is
generally conceded to Heinle

MOST UNUSUAL FEAT

Remarl sbln Game Pinyed nt Brnm-

en co In United OUten.
Sergeant 13. L. Sweettnnu, u tncuihsr
of n Cniuullt.i ''"tachincnt now In enmp
nt llrnmshott, tamliuul, writes of a re
markublo game of ball played by two
Canodlnn otdler teams koiiio time
back and submits It as a record never
equaled In bnrebiill. Tho feat was thu
retiring of no less than 17 batters on
the same number of pitched balls. Tho
tennis playing were made up from the
Twentieth and Thirteenth Canadian re
serves and Included several players In
tho States and In Cnnndn.
Tho details of the unusual series of
outs are thus given by Sweettnnn :
"Twentieth reserves went to hat In
the first half of the (lfth lulling. Par
Ice, first mnu to bat, grounded out,
pitcher to Ilrst. O'ltegnn llled out to
second baseman, Craft grounded out,
short to first.
"Second half of fifth, Thirteenth re
serves hutting: Campbell filed out to
third base. Crowley grounded out,
third to first. Mnsscy was out, short
"Sixth Inning, Twentieth Imttlng:
Gnrnott filed out to third. Hatfield
grounded out, second to first. Heyck
out, short to first.
"Second half of sixth: Ferguson out,
pitcher to first. Lavetto out, on n fly
to second. Donnhtio out. pitcher to
"Seventh Inning: Arscnnut, O'Koofo
nnd Dulto In turn grounded out, second
"Second half of sovouth Inning:
Thorn out, short to first. Green out to
catcher on foul. Tho next man singled
nnd tho remarkable run was over, after
17 batters had hit tho Ilrst boll pitched
In turn and each hud been put out."
Swcotmnn, writing of tho strnngo
record, snys: "I never saw the llko of
It nnd probably never will again. Of
courso tho pitchers, Purlco and Fer
guson, had the batters at their mercy,
as the score of the game, which was
2 to 2 in ten tunings, will Indicate, but
that. It took soma clnssy pitching Is
shown by tho fact thut we had souio
good men in tho game.
"Ferguson, who pitched for tho
Twentieth reserves, I believe, pinyed
In tho Now nnglund lenguo and had n
tryout with Provldcnco In tho Interna
tional. He Is the best man In tho
Camp lenguo here. Mussoy was In tho
United States army for a time. Duma
had a tryout with Minneapolis soveral
years ago. Itoberts played lu the Now
York State lenguo and In the Now
lCnglnnd league. Harris played for
Akron nnd Toledo. Donohuo pinyed
with Ilrldgeport and nlso won famo ns
a boxer under tho mime of 'Kid Mc
Aullffe.' "All of theso men of tho Twentieth,
however, were not In the gnmo I wrlto
about, because some of them hnve gono
across to France, or huvo been sent
back to Canada."
