for Nationals?Vanguard ;
Bj i.n.ici.i. t HORELA.\D.
Th?.- departure of Mike Martin
and Nick Altrock tomorrow morning ,
for Tampa, prove? the baseball ?eiaon :
is approaching. The two member? of
the Nationals will leave Baltimore ??>
morrow night at ? o'cloclt b>* boat,
arriving at Jacksonville next Stftiday
morning at 7. They will then dr
part for Tampa by train, arriving at
the camp about 3 p. m.
Krom then on both will M busy
retting the grounds ready. This *.T.
mot be so hard, for the Hotel Com
pany is already at work getting
things In shape. They have hauied !
many toads of loam to the field an'l
a steam roller haa been herd at work
the pant week. The report from there
says the grounds will be in excellent
shape, .? 11 the grass has been cu*.
s?? that when the players arrive March
1 they can start to work on a regular
baseball field. #
This was pleasant new* to Presi
dent Griffith, aa he feared that ''???
boys would not have the proper flcM
t-? play on. but since news was re
ceived tha? the diamond will have a
skin infield he feels better.
???gaa??! Leaves M-aaa.
But ten more days until the first
squad leave? under President (Jrlf- :
He will take in the first squad
about twenty people. KUerbe will
board the train at Unta. S. C. as
arrangement??, have been made to |
? have the train stop at that place to,
take on the youth. Several of the ]
men who live in the South and
West will go direct, so that all will
Ix on hand when OrM and his'
associates arrive Saturday n i-ht,
This will give the players a day of :
grace to visit the city and get ac
quainted with the burg. The next
day they will statt In on a long
iirind that will end October 2.
By the 8th of next month all of
the boys will be on hand, and then
the fun will begin, i.ritlith has his I
work ?ut out already, for under '
the many change*-? in the rules he.
as well as all managers, must train '
lh?- playcr.-?? in thr many changes. '
One of the most difficult will be the
pitch-out. This is irking to cause
mor?-' tro ubi?? than any other.
Many tin not understand th?? rule
:? ? 1 .i i ri ?Ion ?. ? ml the;. will be
fooled in the play.
This? nil.? Is \.ry strict it will
not only prevent the pitcher from
handinu a batter an intentional '
walk, but It will also prevent the
??atrher from stepping out of his
Ik?x lie fore the. ball has left the
hands of the pitcher. He must wait
until after the ball has left the
twirier'.** hands. In < ase he does it
is going to cause a how I. If a man I
is oa third and one on first and a !
double steal is ordered, of course *
Um catrher is going to try to get,
the runner going to second, and in'
his hurr> he may step out for a
fast one Should he do that, the
umpire must order the man home
with the run. and no play can be
made on him.
What a howl will go tip if (?liar- ?
it. or l'i- inieh >tepH out to get !
a fast one and the winning run is
ordered home! Poor everybody on ?
Tie Nationals' But let the play be
reversed, then what a yell of de
light and rrmarVs about bone
heads' You see. we will not have
any players on our team like that?'

extremely likely that the Belgian

The American request Is for
events of ion, ?JOO. 800 and 1.200
