HOW THE BUSINESS IS CONDUCTED
alarle of th Karljr Professional Floier
Tb Present Style of Pitching
ftad Why Experts Dexsuuia .
,vw m Avar.
For some years bos ball ha been con
ducted on regular business prlnolplst, bat
not until recently have such high sslarle
been paid.' The present style of pitching '
Is responsible for the enormous salarlos '
which th "king of th profession" de
mand. The best pitcher get as much
money for working a few hour each day
during seven months many college pro-
feisors receive for their entire year's serv
ice. This has not always been the case.
Tb first real professional nine was th
famous Cincinnati Red Stockings, which
were established in 1809. Ther had been
many club throughout th coun'ry which,'
previous to this tim-), bad pa d two or
three players for their services, Just as
many of our alleged "strictly amateur"
nines do at present Tb Rod Shocking
were the first club, however, to take men
on contrao an 1 to pay every one on the
team. Harry and Geirge Wright received
the highest salaries paid in the club, and ,
neither was the regular pitcher. Said
Oeorgo Wr'g'it: "The money paid th
entire team would put a poor nine In th '
A dd to-day. My bro'her Harry was the
most expensive man in the team, and he
got $2,i 00 for being captain and playing
center fl ild. I was in my regular posltioi
at short, and drew $1,800. The catchai
came next in order, and the other mei
ranged from that sum down. Several cami "
"It would seem that floldors wore con '
sldered to be worth as much tu pltchan
and ca'rhers In those dsysf '
"That's II exactly. A club without I
strong outfl jl I was as weak then as oni
would tie now without a battery. Every mat
bad to be a player, and the pitcher wis ol
no more Importune than any other man lr
the team. ' Why, almost any one who pro
tended to be a good player could go InU
tbe box with little practice and do well.
And, then, of course, tb catchlnz wai
quite different from what It I now. A '
man who held a thrown ball wsll would gc
behind the bat In an emergency and acquil
himself very creditably. Now It yout
pitcher gives out you might as well stoi
playing; and it Is just tb same wfth the
catcher. It makes no difference how good
your other levon men are, you are no
where If the battery i "Weak."
"Were tbe Cincinnati Red Btockings
ever troubled this wayf"
"Well, we went through oar first sea
son wl.h ton men, and you can Judge for
yourself bow many ex'ra batteries ws
could hav bad. The pitcher did not try
to see how many he could strike ont,
but used his head, and showed hi skill
by changing his speed so that tb bats
men would be deceived and not hit
'the bell bard. Even It be was batted
hard it was nothing agalnit him, and no
one said he bad lost th game. Why, If
on side made six or seven run in an
Inning tb other nine was not by any
means defeated, and thought nothing of
With the changes In the style of pltob-
ing have come higher wages for th
players, until now a bss ball team
is an expensive Institution. New York
bas th two men who are paid mora
for playing ball than an others In tb
world. They are Ward and Ewing,
and each receive a little over $3,00)
for tb present season. The New York
era are called the "hfgh-prloed team,"
but several of the men are hired at low
figures, which brings down tbe total
of the salary list, and tb Chicago '
will hav to be acknowledged th
most expensive club in th League. Then
I not a cheap player In the nine, aqd
while tbe highest salary I not over $3,000,
very man I well remunerated for his
service. Corcoran Is a valuable player.'
Ha I wall awar of It himself, and his
skill In curylng the ball brings him' In $2
800 this year. Rod bourn and Galvln are
other "gilt-edged" players, both la th
work thsy do and tb reward they re
Tb salary list of tb Beaton League
Club amounts to $25,000 lo round number.
Th most valuable man, and deservedly
tb bestepsld one, I Captain MorrilL He
also holds the position of manager, and
he ba earned every cent of his $2,800.
Whitney comes next, and Is certainty roy
ally paid for th amonnt of work be ha
don this season, for whloh he receive
$2,500. Burdock and Hornung just torn
$3,000, and all th other com below this
figure. The value of several I set at
about $1,800, but th season ha mad
great Changes In the playing of some, and
tb prices will be different another year. -
It 1 Impossible to estimate how much -ba
been paid la salaries to ball-player
throughout th country. Th eight League '
club will certainly average aa much as
Boston's total, a they bar tried more '
