Managers Uphold Decision of
CONTESTED GAME DECIDED
Board Hold* Meeting and Render* De?
cision in Dispute Between Baseball
Teams and the Tort Monroe Nine
Wins With the Sccre of 7 to 6.
After a two hours' session last
night, the board of managers of the
Peninsula Haseball League declined to
sustain the protest made by the North
End nine against the decisions of Um?
pire Frank J. Giachetti in the game
with Fort Monroe last Saturday, and
awarded the contest to the artillery?
men by the score of 7 to 6. Umpire
Giachetti was sustained in every de?
cision aa it was a case of the "jttdg
.?lent' of the umpire "against the
.laitns of tue pitcher and members of
ihe North End team."
Manager Nexsen, of the North End
rs, had a written protest. In which
be objected to the "balks" called by
Mr. Giachetti on Pitcher Simpson.
Mr. Nexsen contended that the pitcher
?aa merely living up to his delivery
ml that with one exception, there
>verc no "balks."
Contention of Umpire.
In answering the charges contained
n the protest. Mr. Giachetti contend?
ed thai bis oplniona were fully upheld
tiy the rules of the game and he dis
'usscd the rules at length, contend
ing that he was BSaTM out In everv
oai titular by the rules. Mr. Giachetti
iaJi he has participated in many
^arnes and has seen some of the big?
gest teams play.
Pitrbar Simpson emphatically den-(
>cd that he "balked," with the one
exception, and that exception was
when he had first told Field Umpire'
Kay field oi his intention to do ao. lie!
said he did this to see if he could
make a "balk."
During the discussion of the
balks.'' other features of the game
were discussed and Mr. Giachetti met
ihe objections with his view of what ,
actually took place. In the case of
iiemtningway getting in front of the.
third baseman, the umpire said there
are no rules to call a batter out be- i
cause of the interference of a man on
lHe coaching line. He said the ball
bit Derrish's hand before it struck i
the bat and for that reason he sent;
Derrish to first base, thus giving his
opinion ot another objection.
Mr. Rayfield who was umpiring the'
bases last Saturday, told the manag-j
ers that he could not agree with Mr. I
Giachetti and explained that the pitch
ing of Simpson was certainly not a
After some further discussion, Mr.
Mlist, ad offered a resolution that the
same be awarded to North End by the
.-core of 2 to 0. claiming that he did
so because he believed the Newport
News team was entitled toj
the game Mr. Milstead said that he did
not question the honesty of Mr.
Giachetti, but thought that the um?
pire had made a woful mistake and I
-bowed a lack of knowledge of tbej
Mr. Junken was opposed to giving
'he shipbuilders the game, declaring'
that the rulings of the umpire were
:i:lly in keeping with all the rules gov?
Capt. Darling, who is the president,'
said he thought that Simpson had at
'empted to deceive the umpire on ou?
occasion, and therefore he was unable
to say that the pitcher did not attempt
to deceive Mr. Giachetti at other
times. He thought the managers
should demand clean ball and he was
coing to vote with Mr. Junken in
sustaining Mr. Giachetti. ( apt. Darl?
ing said that the managers must be
careful in passing on protested games
?mi must atand by the umpires.
Would Eliminate Simpson.
During the discussion Manager Nex?
sen and Mr. Simpson each declared
that In the event that the decision
of Giachetti were upheld, that It will
eliminate SimpsiHi from the Penin?
sula league. Mr. Simpson said he has
been pitching nine years and that be
has always used the same delivery.
A letter was read from President
Lynch, of the National League,
sustaining the view of the play taken
by local people, but Mr. Giachetti aaid
the national league president was not
given the "balks" he complained of.
Although the meeting at times wav?
ed warm the best feeling was mani?
fested at the conclusion of the ses?
sion, as all aeemed to put personal
ohjcc?on aside when it comes to the
interest of the Peninsula league and
?he success of this season.
Umpire Giachetti assured the North
Enders that he has nothing but the
best feeling for them and tha' he
will he on band next Saturday and
will umpire Just as though nothing
had ever happened. The genera!
opinion expressed by Ike Newport
News players waa that Mr. Giachetti
is one of the fairest umpires, but that
be arms "o*T" In bis decision last Sat?
