Mickey noticed that Austin Me

when you have stolen .'!() bases
you really will have stolen .11,

WOULD PUT STOP TO
ROWDYISM ON FIELD
President Heydler Would Stamp
Out Umpire Baiting.

cient Men and Intends to Back
Them to Limit Players
Are Qlven Warning.
President Heydler of tho National
league In an Interview announced that
ho would not stand for umpire baiting
or rowdyism on the ball Held, He at
tended a game between the Cardinals
and Olants on the Polo grounds, where
It Is claimed certain Cardinal players
behaved In a disgraceful manner. Hey.
"Itasebull Is too great a game to per
mit siuh tactics as certain players
have employed In recent games to
show their dlsntlsfnctlou over deci
sions by umpires, I do not contend
that the umpires always are correct.
It would be humanly tmpoxslblu for
them always to give the light decisions,
lint It Is safe to say they aie right nine-ty-nlno
times out of a hundred. Even
If n plnyer iIITers with an umpire over
a decision It behooves lilm to recognize
the authority of the olllclal Instead of
Indulging In disorderly conduct.
"IJaseball Is a clean game. Spirit Is
essential, of course. Mlvalry makes
for faster competition. Hut spirit and
rivalry must not be mistaken for gut
tersnipe tactics smh as throwing baud
fills of dirt at umpires mid i'iiilug. as
some players have done. The fans In
the stands that Is, a big majority of
them certainly do not approve of mis
conduct such as that.
"I consider the National league um
pires a group of ellleleiit men, and In
tend to buck them to the llmll, Play
ers who persist In breaking the uiles
by misconduct on the field will he so
vorolj dealt with. Let this irve as n
warning to them."
