fielder was resourceful and threw the

Ono of tho most amusing Instnnces
of tho kind occurred In Detroit In tho
early days of tho game, when tho

there was n runner on third. A wild
pitch got past the catcher and tho
runner started for tho plate.
Bennett mndo a clutch as though ho
had stopped the ball and then mcunccd
tho runner with n pretended throw.
Back to third went tho runner, nnd
then Bennett raced to tho grandstand
wall and reaching down appeared to
pick up tho ball. Tho coachcrs howled
themselves hoarse telling tho runner
thnt the ball was lost, but Bennett
kept mnklng motions ns though to
throw to third, and tho runner danced
back and forth for nearly a minute
beforo ho finnlly realized that Bennett
did not havo the ball.
