OWNERS WANT BETTER
PITCHING NEXT YEAR
Both Major Leagues Expected
to Amend Rules,
Magnates Have Reached Conclusion
That There Is Too Much Hard
Hitting Leading Pitchers
Make Vigorous Protests.
,Tt Is understood that the major
li'igue pitching rules will be amend
im) nt the xxinler meetings of tlie clubs.
Tie goxeniors of tlie national pastime,
with few exceptions, bave arrived nt
tip conclusion that there Is too much
bmtlng and also too much run-inaklitg.
I'rotests from tenia managers and
fmn leading pitchers have poured Into
mijor league lieailipiniters ever since
thi' start of tlie pennant races to the
effect that the rules are too seven1.
't Is 11 sure thing that the 'dilnor"
mil "emery ball" have been eliminated
for nil time. Those tricky dellx cries
rie-cr should have been tolerated.
Ihit, It Is thought probable that the
ble league hoxmen who alxvays hnvo
u(d the spit hall will be allowed to
deliver It as long as they remain in
In other words, the hnn placed on
the use of the splttcr after tills season
will be raised In the cases of the
pitchers listed In that class, but nexx-
comers from tlie minors and elsexxiiere
In 1021 xxill have to depend on nnturul
The preservation of the "xvet dp
llvtry" Is favorably considered for the
reiMon that the present rule. If en
forced next year, would drive some of
the most effective pitchers out of the
profession. As many of them hnvo
only a few jears left In tin big cir
cuits It Is argued that they are entitled
to make a living until they lose their
clUclcney as a result of advancing
l'resldent Ueydler of the National
league has been ipinted In fnx'or of re
moving the restrictions on the spit ball
and to favor a new rule permitting
the pitchers to dry their hands xxith
resin to be supplied by the umpires.
Ueydler and l'resldent Johnson of the
American league have talked this mat
ter over, and It Is believed that both
will recommend changes based upon
cmiitiion sene, hut Just what chnnges
win he made Is not certainly known
nt 'I Is time.
