ATHLETE NEVER STOLE BASE
Hub Perdue Tells Story of Life's Trag
edy, an Ambition of Fifteen
Huh Perdue, the famous Oulluttu
numdi, his eyes tear dimmed ami
Ills voire husky, recently coallded to
sorrowing friends the story of a life's
tragedy, of an umhltlnu of 15 years'
standing never yet and apparently
never to he fulfilled.
"I've been piaylng haseliall for Ifi
years and I've never stulen a bane,"
moaned tho portly boxman of the I'ell
caiis, "Surely, Huh," urged a bystander,
"In all these years you have at times
hceu on first and a runner on third
find two out, or have gotten to first
with tho enemy ahead by a flock of
runs and willing to let you steal 'round
to third jiiHt for the fun of It."
"Never, never," nnsweied the old
timer. "I'm determined to steal a baso
though. If I Imvo to slay In baseball
ten years or more or break a leg whllo
I am trying. Tho only way I could
ever find for mo to steal a baso was
to get a lantern and go out ut night,
but tho scorers won't count that kind."
JOHN WATSON IS HOPELESS
Pitcher Looked Good Last Year, but
Starts This Season Showed Noth
ing, to Connie Mack.
Connlo Mack gave John Watson up
as hopeless last week and released him
to Ilaltlmore. Watson looked pretty
good last year, but In his threo Marts
this spring showed nothing that would
encourage Mack to keep him. In his
place Mack has signed a young pitcher
named Elsonbergor, who comes from
an Independent team at Marysvllle, 1'a.

Peculiar Instance Recited
Game at Cincinnati.
Adotpho Luque, Cuban Twlrler, Given
Credit for Winning Contest Al
though Not In Lineup When
Winning Runs Scored.
Tho worthlessnesH of "won and lot"
records for pitchers Is shown In the
following Invtauce as recited by Jack
Itydcr In Cluclnuhtl Knqulrcr:
Adolpho Lu(iie, the Cuban rjght
hnnder, received credit for whining the
opening game of the season at Cin
cinnati from the Cardinals. lie pitched
only one Inning, and was not actually
In tho lineup when the whining reus
were scored, but his credit for a vic
tory in the records was in accordance
with tho rules governing tho crediting
of games to pitchers.
Luque went Into tlie game at the
start of the eighth Inning, with the
score 1! to 1 In favor of the Cardlnnls.
The state of the score at that time
eliminated ltcuthcr, who bad pitched
the first seven round, from any
chance of receiving credit Tor the
game if the lteds should win. Ilcutlier
left the contest with a loser on his
hands, and If no more runs hud been
scored by the lteds be would have
been charged with the defeat.
Luipte pitched the first half of the
eighth inning with success, shutting
out tho enemy and retiring the side In
order. In the last half of tlie inning
the lteds staged 11 batting rally and
eventually scored live runs, giving
hem the lend, (1 to -'. In the course of
this rally Luque was taken out of the
mime to lot Walter Itehg bat for him
at a critical time, and It was a base on
balls to Hehg, hutting for Luque,
which forceil over tho whining tally.
IJy the time the Inning was completed
the lteds hinl the tlctory well In hand.
Hod KHer went In and pitched the
ninth Inning, retiring the opposing bat
ters In one-two-tliree order. Hut I.ller
was not In the lineup when the lteds
went to the front, and by the time he
went to the box the lteds had the
game won with a lend of four runs.
Therefore he could not receive credit
for winning the game, which had heen
won before be was picked lo go Into
tho box. The credit therefore reverts
to Luque, who was the pitcher In
charge of the game when tho winning
round was staged.
