GRIFFITH TAKES
ISSUE WITH BAN
New Vork. Jan 11. No less a base
ball authority than old Clark Griffith,
manager of the Washington Senators,
t;ik.s Issue with Ban Johnson on the
Change in the method of scoring av
erages of pitchers, advocated by John
son. This scheme is not a now one.
h has been agitated for several yean
and next season It will be put into ef
fect so far as tho Amerlcnn league Is
concerned, because President Johnson
has BO decreed
Instead of keeping averages of the
slabtnen according to the number of
games won and lost. Johnson says ev
ery pitcher In his league in the future
will be rated according to the num
ber of bits made off him and the num
ber of bases on balls he Issues.
Griffith was the lending pitcher of
the country' for many years and
should be regarded as one of the very
best judges of the right and wrong of
the change. He says it Is an incen
tive for a pitcher to work harder If he
Is to get credit for the victory, for G13
same reason that he will work harder
to avoid defeat.
"Give me the pitcher that is out al
ter the game and doesn't care how
many hits are being madp eery in
ning or how many earned runs are
being sent across the plate one who
is out to win. many runs or few. mnnv
hits or few," Is the way Griffith ex
presses it
