11 1 H WIS - - - BASE MIL IMS 1 STRUCK OUT FOUR MEN Guy Morton of Cleveland Whiffed Quartet in One Inning. Unusual Stunt Was Performed In Game With Athletics Willie Mlt- chell Claims He Fanned Seven Brtsmen In Same Inning. Guy Morton of tho Indian was the only innjor-lcague pitcher of 1010 to strike out four men In one Inning. Tho Alnlmnm Arrow performed this tin usunt font In tho sixth frnmo of tho game of .Tunc 11 ngitlnst the Athletics, his victims being Lnwton Witt, Char ley Pick, Napoleon Lnjolc and Jack Mclnnls. Witt reached first becnuo his third strike nlo wns n wild pitch. To strike out four men In ono ses sion Is not n novelty for u innjor-lengue pitcher, though tho occurrence does not often crop up. Wllllo Mitchell, who stnrted tho season un Indian nnd finished It n Tiger, says ho once funned seven men In ono chapter, his oppo nents meanwhile gntherlng four runs. Ho claims to have done this In 1000 for Snn Antonio ngulnst Houston. Wllllo snys his catcher that day wns Dolly Stnrke, one tlmo Superha shortstop. Mitchell snys Dolly hroko tho record for pnsscd halls nnd that this was tho renson ho wns nhlo to fan seven. Tho day Morton had tho Athletics so thoroughly on his staff only .'J of tho 13 Mnckmcn who hatted against him escaped helng whiffed. They were lieu lien Oldrlng and Wily Meyer, who wcro In tho controversy from start to finish, nnd 1)111 Stellhauer, who ripped off n single when ho hatted for Jack Nnbors In tho eighth. Strunk fanned three times, I.njolo and Witt each fanned twlco and Mclnnls, Walsh, My ers, Nnbors, 1'lck nnd Seining each fanned once. Denton Young (Cy I.) prolmhly per formed n feat unequaled hy auyono when on April 0, 1000, pitching for the Guy Morton. Cardinals against tho Pirates, ho scat tered his nine strikeouts so that one cumo in every Inning. Tho feat of striking out thrco men in ono Inning was accomplished 27 times In tho American Ivnguo last season, men who did It moro than nnco being Claude Williams, Urban Fuller, Wllllo Mitchell and Walter Johnson.

Apparently helng nn amateur Is a profitable profession. Hoxers might show moro speed If they woro spiked shoes. Hoxers nro good Insurunco risks. They never tako any chances. Johnny Evers' contract with tho Bos ton Nationals expires this year. Man who Insists boxing Is u brutal sport evidently never saw u bout. Almost any golfer could dig n trench If permitted to use u mashlo. Most walkers seem to reullzo that they can nitiko better tlmo by running. Hall players do so much lighting In tho winter they're all tired out when summer comes. "A hard-hitting lighter Is nlwnys popular," writes u critic. But not with other lighters. If ball players woro lighters they'd probably kick about tho referee's de cisions Just tho same. If tho Poughkeepslo rowing raco Is shortened tho hint crow won't bo so far away at tho llulsh. When It comes to tho salary checks tho hall player has no scruples about being called a professional. There's no truth In tho report that professional ball players will support tho daylight saving movement. Calling ono a cheeso champion these days Is an honor when you consider tho prlco of cheeso at tho grocery.

Jack Murray of the New York Giants Has Most Conclctcnt Record Ellis, Bates, Snodgrass and Cravath Also Shine. Statistics show that outfielders hnck In the eighties nnd nineties shaded tho present-day outfielders In making as sists. Tho best record for tho number of assists made In one season In tho majors in recent years, or since HMM), wns stacked .up by Harry Nllcs with tho St. Louis Browns In 1000. Harry nailed 30 men from tho outfield, get ting them ut different bases. Mlko Mitchell, while playing with tho Cincinnati team, equaled the mark set by Nlles, heading off .'10 men by his power to shoot n hall from the far thest corner of the outfield with suffi cient accuracy nnd speed to get his mnn. Ty Cobb, .Too Blrinlnghnm, Tris Speaker, Joo Jnckson and Clyde Milan of Washington ull have madu espe cially good records In this direction, nnd lend their respective teams In throwing out buse-runncrs from tho re moto corners of tho outer garden. In his day Fielder Jones was a past mas ter In pegging the ball from the out field, nnd nipped many runners. In the National league since 1000 Murray of tho Giants has the most consistent record of the old league out Holders In making assists, he leading tho lcnguo In four different seasons. Ellis, who used to bo with the Cards, was good at making long throws, und Jack Murray. Imd nn uveiago of 2." n season. Thus Bates, Cravath and Snodgrass have good marks for accurate throwing from the outlleld. But the old boys back In tho hal cyon days of the eighties made somo astonishing records In throwing out base runners from nfnr off. Jimmy Fognrty of the Phillies averaged an assist from tho outlleld every third giitno ho played In. Sam Thompson of tho old Detrolts and Phillies was u mighty thrower In his day. M'FARLAND NOT COMING BACK Packey'a Recent Announcement Was Made Without Consent of His Man ager Ring Days Over. Packey McFarbind Is not going back to tho ring. Packey announced recent ly that ho wns hot on the trail of Los Packey McFarland, Dnrcy and Mlko Gibbons and would consent to perform for tho paltry sum of $2."),000. However, Packey spoko without tho consent of his manager. "My real manager has vetoed tho comeback thing," Is tho announcement from the McFailaud chicken farm near Toilet, III. "Sho says wo have enough at homo to keep mo busy without box tug again." Which, say those who know Mrs, Packey, Is sufficient proof that Me Furland's duys In tho ring nro over. MPF Lw At ' B J&y&m t' -mL9 BILLY EVANS SOLVES BASEBALL PROBLEM (Written Expressly for This Paper by the Famous American League Umpire.) JSZJDZSOZZRm m - TRIO WHO FIGURED IN PECULIAR PLAY. Failure of the fans to know what hns actually happened on tho Held Is very often the leason why the umpire gets Into trouble. If It were possible In somo way to let the crowd know the reason for this or that ruling, the umpire would usually escape hiuch of tho criticism that Is heaped on his poor head. In n game nt St. Louis between Washington nnd St. Louis, a play came up which caused the admirers of the Browns to say many unkind things about the umpire, when, ns n matter of fact, thnt official could not possibly have ruled otherwise. He wns unfortunate In having n play come up that tho fans were not wise to. hence they believed their favorites wore getting ull the worst of tho decision. In tho eighth Inning, with St. Louis enjoying n ono run lend, Washington got men on ilrst nnd third with only ono out. "Eddie" Foster, n mighty good hitter In u pinch, was tho hatter. He sent n liner through the box that looked like n suro single. "Johnny" Lnvan, dashed over, made u wonderful stop of the hit, touched second base nnd threw tho ball to tlrst In tlmo uppnrently to double up Foster. In the meantime, tho mnn from third had crossed the plate with what wns tho tiling run If there had been no double piny or If the ball had gone safe. The homo team rooters gave this man no attention, ns they figured tho double play hud ended the Inning and made tho run void. But something had happened when Foster hit tho ball that chnnged the entire complexion of the play. Catcher "Sam" Agnew, working close behind tho bnt, had touched Foster's bat Just ns ho was about to strike at the hall. Possibly the slight Interference In no way nffectcd the swing, but the umpire was forced to do tilings that displeased tho Brown rooters. What was the umpire forced to do under the conditions? Answer to Problem. The play In which the catcher tipped tho bat of tho batsman Just us he was nbout to strlko nt the ball narrows tho play down simply to u enso of interference While both players Imd apparently been retired neither was out. Tho very moment tho catcher touched tho bat of the batsman, that player was entitled to llrst base. That base being occupied, the runner was entitled to advance to second without liability to bo retired. Naturally, since few people In tho stand knew that tho catcher had Interfered, a big roar resulted when both runners who seemed to he put out were declared safe. The runner on third who had scored was, of course, sent back to that base. As Is usually the case, tho next batter followed with a double that decided the game.
