A ork in the outfield, such as throwing
and cutting-off the long hits; doesn't
appear, even relatively as often as
fancy infield work.
There are oniy three b?tfields in the
big leagues which for ground covering,
throwing and speed in getting after
j long hits rate up to Al grade. These
are the Detroit, Chicago National and
Pittsburg outfields. Notwithstanding
Pittsburg's bumps this year Clarke,
Leach and'Wilson are three sweet gar
deners. Hoffman, Schulte and Sheck
ard are an outfield hard to improve on,
while Cobb and Craw/ord are pippins
with either McIntyre or Jones in left
classy enough to fit in nicely. Lewis,
Hooper and Speaker of the Red Sox
make a pretty nice .outfield and one
likely to get better.
The best infield in the country is
that of the Athletics-Davis, Collins.
Barry and Baker. It can hit. run
buses, and on defense is nearer to air
tight than any other present-day quar
tet. Stahl, Gardner, Wagner and Lord
are a fast four, without thu class at
all corners of the Athletics. Chance.
Evers, Tinker and Steinfeldt make a
strong cordon, but one which has a
shade less of the fire of youth bf the
Athletic four. Merkle, Doyle, Bridwell
and Devlin are a combination not as
evenly balanced in ground covering
ability as could te virhed, th? greater
ability being on the left side.
The New York Americans' infield ls
also out of balance, having a prepon
derance of ability of the right side.
Cincinnati's infield is well balanced,'
and so is that of the Phillies. Pitts-,
burg's always has lacked finish at first
base, but a hummer otherwise. Cleve
land's is stronger in the middle than
on the extremities. Brooklyn's is not
fast individually, lacks stability as a
whole, but is likely to improve. Bres
nahan has a tidy infield and one that
can cover lots of ground from first to
Take any of the present Infields and
they do not outshine bygone infields of
the Tenncy-Lowe-Long-Collins stand
ard or of the Doyle-Reltz-Jennings-Mc
Graw standard. But then those two
were in a class by themselves in their
day. As a whole the Infields of the
present rate up as high now as then.
Were ther. one 12-club league nowa
days it is probable that more high
class infields could be put ' together
than were found 15 years ago.
The old question of numbering the
players on the field so that they can be
picked out by reference to the sccre
card has come up again. Some fans
want this system introduced, claiming
that it would add to the pleasure of
witnessing a contest to be able to
glance at a huge number on the back
or chest of an athlete and then refer
to a card and pick out his name.
There is no chance, though, of aay
euch method being introduced. It ?VOL ld
oe a bit of humiliation to the players
to have to wear such pictures on their
manly forms, which is entirely unnec

that is a small matter.

STUDY WEAK POINTS
?F OPPOSING PITCHER
ROBERT WALLACE, THIRD BASE
MAN OF ST. LOUIS BROWNS,
SAYS FIRST STUDY WEAK
POINTS OF TWIRLER OF
BT ROBERT WALLACE.
(Copyright. ll'iO. by Josepn B. Bowles.)
Working together for one run at a
time, ana hitting at the weak points
in the opposing team is my idea of
how to win baseball games. To me a
baseball game, is just like a battle.
The effort should be. to attempt to
break the defenses some place, and
then attack that broken spot. The
easiest point to attack, of course, is
the pitcher and every effort of a
team should be concentrated to
weaken the pitcher.
Knowledge of a pitcher, whether he
ls wild, whether he has good control,
whether he fields bunts well, is es
sential before a game is started and
the attack should be directed at the
weak spot. Run bases on pitchers
who do not watch the bases care
fully; outguess the slow thinking
pitchers, and bunt on the bad fielders.
I believe in playing hard for one run
early in the game, "for the first run
handicaps the other team and forces
them to hit. The first run I think is
almost half the game, and one run
in* the first inning usually is worth
three later in the game.
It is nearly all a study of individ
uals, and experience helps a lot 'As
to third base, it is one of the most
difficult positions in the field to play,
ard when the other team is at bat a
third baseman is forced to do a lot of
thinking or he will lose the game.
With runners on bases the chief at
tack by the bunting, plan is directed
at third base and the baseman, play
ing less than ,90, often only 75 feet
from the batter, ls in a ticklish posi
tion: He must decide whether a cer
tain batter will bunt, or whether he
will try to draw the baseman forward
by pretending to bunt and then push
the ball hard past him. If he decides
wrong his chances of fielding a hard
pushed ball while he is running for
ward, are slim. If he gets the boll lt
is because he is lucky enough to have
it hit straight at him because while
coming forward he is enable to change
direction or to stop in time to field
such a hit A wrong guess with nen
on first and second usually means the
loss of the game.
I know through experience what al
most every batter is likely to do, but
in baseball there is nothing quite so
dangerous as thinking you know what
a man will, do because he has done
that thing many times. He ls likely
to change quickly and upset every
thing. I watch the batters carefully,
especially in situations where two or
three plays are possible, and frequent
ly can guess from the actions or posi
tion of the batter what he ls going
to try to do. He may hide his inten
tions perfectly and yet tip off his plan
through his very effort to conceal it.
A false position or an exaggerated
show of doing one thing frequently
means that the other is coming. I like
to know what the pitcher is going to
pitch to a batter in an important situ
ation. It is difficult for a third base
man to get the signals because the
catcher is covering up all the time
In order to prevent the coachers from
seeing. It is a big help to know what
ball is to be served, especially if the
pitcher is pitching inside or slow, and
giving the batter great opportunities
ter pulling the ball hard over third
base, as it gives a third baseman
time to establish an alibi or fix up a
Working with the short stop Is nee
essary, and a third baseman and
short stop must understand every in
stant which is to take balls hit be
tween them, or hit slowly. A single
mixup there will lose many games,
and the decision must be made like a

hope may help young players who ore
