FOR FEDERAL LEAGUE
t ASSOCIATED MtESS DISPATCH
CHICAGO, July 12. Although the
plans of the Federal League magnates
regarding a post season series are not
yet completed it is aparent that there
will be an effort made to holdi the
attention of the baseball fans during
the playing of the world's series be
tween the winners of the National

major leagues close their seasons on
October 7 and the Federals on Oc

plans of the new organization the
pennant winning clubs will issue an
open challenge to the leaders of the
two major organizations and if ig
nored will institute a series of their

team from the seven clubs finishing
after the pennant winner. This com
bination will play a series of seven
or nine games against the league
leaders, the contests to be held in
various cities comprising the Federal
circuit. The gate receipts will be di
vided among the playets composing
the tow teams upon a basis of 60

of the magnates adding either a sum

. NEW YORK, July 12. Batting av
erages based upon the hitting in the
two major leagues during the first
three months of the 1914 season show
that as a rule the heavy hitters of
the past two years are batting close
to form. In the National League,
Grant, Cincinnati; Crandall, New
York, and Zimmerman, Chicago, were
leading on July 1, 1912. A year later
Crandall, New York; Cravath, Phila
delphia; Hyatt, Pittsburg, and Dau
bert, Brooklyn, were closely bunched
in the race for honors. Their aver
ages on the first of July were as fol
lows: Grant .329, which gave him
fourth place among those players
who had participated in at least
twenty-five games. Crandall in the
Federal League was batting at .323
rate which puts him among the first
sven stick wielders in the new league.
Zimmerman, however, showed a slump
in his batting, being more than a
hundred points below his previous
record. Cravaith, who batted .346 in
1913 showed .311, while Hyatt like I
Zimmerman was considerably below
his 1913 form.
The average in the American
League was about the same, for
while Jackson and Cobb were going
at top speed, This Speaker and Nap
Lajoie had fallen short of their per
formances of the past two years. The

Out at the park which they built '
by the park which is near the bank
which the salt liver threw up about
a mile south, of Phoenix, they had a
peculiar game of baseball yesterday.
It took nine Phoenix and nine Mesa
players, and Homer King and "Uncle
Jim" Ormsby just 1:40 to pull that
baseball game off. (Off what? you
ask. We do not answer.) The reas
on it took one hour and forty min
utes instead of until after five
o'clock to handle those nine innings
(eight and a half is more correct),
is that the aforesaid Homer King is
applying show-man's 'methods to the
national sport as she are played in
the S. R. V. Realizing that speed is
one of the things that attract fans
to baseball games, Mr. King, and Mr.
Ormsby and Mr. P. H. Hayes, and
other fans of the ninth degree con
gregated in a box. Then they pro
ceeded to put fight into the eighteen
young men and boys who composed
the two teams. However effective
their grand stand coaching will prove,
remains to be seen, but it or some
thing had an effect yesterday. Run
ning out to the field, hustling their
turns at bat, and cutting off the se
conds ' between whiles that did the
trick. It was no stage whisper that
those "prompters" employed but the
throaty unmusical voice of the peev
Speaking of throaty and bull-puplike
voices reminds us of "Bill" Geary,
the umpire. Bill acquired a cold some
place, and then irritated it by bark
ing "ball!" and "strike!" throughout
several long games of ball. When he
enunciates the word "ball!" now, the
agitation of the air and the air drums
s exactly like that produced when
a deep voiced and not too kindly
hound says "Woof!" When Bill an
nounced the pioposition of John Hy
der to donate a "best hat in the
house" for the first home run, few
of those in the stands understood
him. Most of the fans believed he
was swearing at something or some
body. So we take the opportunity to
repeat, that John Hyder, that sterling
sport is going to pay one good set
of shingles to the man who first
makes four bases on one hit in the
new park. In our opinion it will be
a safe hat for a long time.
Bill Brady is now boosting Jess
Willard as the man who stands the
biggest chance of licking Jack John
son. His guess is about as good as
his picking Frank Moran to bring
back the top pugilistic honors to the
Marcus Catton is coming right
along. He'll be a son that even "Old
Billy" Catton would be proud to
own. Of course the mark he set at
18.1 balk line the other day will not
rock the world, for it was made in
practice not in competition. But it
shows that Phoenix has at least one
citizen, who is destined to fa mo
among the sport folk of this big
America of ours.

day. Weyand was rambling around
town in his motorcycle-mobile the
Excelsior side car with the cunning
little top. He stopped long enough
to tell us that he was going to tackle
that rocky old road next Sunday with
a two-speed motorbike, and then put-
