enough for any baseball team that ever
donned a flannel uit. But it is a pet
name that is "wanted one by which the
team may be affectionately called by
the loving fans much as lovers call each
other after the fowls of the field and
the birds of the barnyard. Every team
has such a name and it is now up to El
Paso to get busy and find a suitable
name for the boys in white. "White Sox

horns last year but that name, adopted
from the favorites of the' Chicago Amer-
'.can league team, ceased to have any
application when the color of the ho

liughie Fullerton, impressed by the
songs and calls of the Wild Cat club at
the Sox smoker, dubbed the local team
the "Wild Cats" and called them that in
his telegraph report of the second
White Sox game here. The name "Cac
tus Club" has been suggested but this
is not distinctive enough as the league
is known by that name. Douglas calls
its pets the "Demons," Cananea. for the
want of a better name, uses the words'
"Copper Diggers" for its team. Bisbee
is Known as the "Mucker' team, aud
vlbuquerque calls its team the "Grays."
It Is up to the El Paso fans to get busy
and dig up a name for their club. Young
as It it, the club needs to be christened,
and since the team belongs to the fans,

gave the batter a hit instead of mark

Mills is leading off the batting order,
and is hitting the pill out to the

I've been playing many, many years
and have engaged in many hundreds
of hard fought games, so it is not an
easy matter for me to recall what the
fans say is the brainiest or most bril
liant play I ever made. A majority
of the fans who are not in touch with
the inner workings of a baseball club
fail to stop to consider that doing
the unexpected on the diamond is part
of the life of a professional baseball
player. In fact, he has his daily task

using his brains, hands and feet in an
endeavor to make his employer a win

last "summer at American League park
which required the quickest kind of
thinking. Detroit had runners on sec

but one out Mclntyre lifted a long
j foul fly to right field. I started after
tne Dan on the dead run. I got within
reach of it finally, but when the crowd
was expecting me to make a great
catch I suddenly dropped my hands to
my side and allowed the ball to strike
the ground. For a moment the crowd
started to groan and then broke out
into a round of applause that gradual

I had caught that ball Stanage would
have scored for third, it being too long
a throw to get him at the plate. As it
was foul nobody could advance. Mc

no score resulted, and the next batter

The game of today is faster and hard

than that of long ago. The game of
today requires more team work, inside
ball and more cleverly executed plays.

squeeze play, bunting, the hit and run
