LEAGUE (Continued From First Fage.) so wlti, reservations, luu merely an j expression of men who had been knd ly treated, and who had received piaud. ; It after plaudit at any marked i achievement. Richmond people want to win, but they have always a kindly word for th* anqillBhcd. I Heavy skies ?nd chilling winds on Tuesday, the day before the opening of the league, served but to emphasize I the Interest locally. Men who have not been In a ball park since tho good j old days when the same Ralph Soy I bold, who Is now a member of Newn i ham's "Rebs," spent his leisure mo I merits grazing peacefully In the grass , near tho fence; when .lack Chesbro, I and Sam Leover anel Kid Elberfeld ami j .lack Knor and Bill Hargrove anel Turkey Graves, to say nothing of the ? lays when Glcnti and Fergusson ami fCasIl and T?te, and other lesser lights, wore uniforms und brought glory 10 the city of seven hills, manage.l to out and watch the; game. Their verdict is tiie verd'et of a united popu? lace, or as much thereof as was able to get within the roped lines?"Rich? mond Is going to have real baseball again." (.uesncil netter Hall. Somehow or other, whether by in? tuition, or through that sixlh sense which few appreciate and none can explain, the people hereabouts seemed 10 know that there would be some? thing different offered at the new j park. U'lille generally there was an | air <if expectancy, tho fabric upon which this expectancy was built was constructed upon the belief that the new league would be just] a little aheael uf anything offered In Richmond In tho baseball line for! j many months. How well, or rather; i how true, the fun had guessed Is best told by the hundreds of pleased and exhilarate,] travelers who made tho! journey. j Not a, man. or woman either, for that matter, who visited Lee Park yes terdoy but will say that Richmond! Is going to receive major league base ball. It Isn't so much that Richmond ? won. The same opinion would hold j had Richmond tagged to the short end I of the scorv. It was that snap and} vim and at-lt-all-the-tlme spirit! shown There was no lagging. The; playeri were at the workbench all of ' tho time. They were on the job. An Inning ended meant merely another Inning to be begun. A man on base in eh nt a mini whose count would go ! to the sum total of achievement. It v ik not baseball with tin- hands only. Brains formed a more than perceptible portion of the performance, Tho oc tors in tile drama had been properly rehearsed. They didn't liuvo to stop and wonder what was their Cite. Thoy knew, and they picked up these cues In such rapid fashion that thu per? formance went as smoothly as if it had bcon staged for months Instead of mere days of preparation. Uood->iatiired Crowd. And what a good-natured crowd it was: How it smiled and then smiled some more! Not that everything was perfection. Indeed, there are many things which must ho improved at Leo Park before U will meet with either the approval of the owners or of the public. Tho ouiierg'know where the improvements n.'ist be made, and they are going to make them. Tho crowd, however, wasn't out to find fault. Maybe, after the newness of it all has worn off soi-o members of this great jostling, crowding, laughing, playful mass, may realize that the going was heavy, the grandstand net quite com? plete and many other details. Yester? day every moth, r's son of them was out to see hasel all?baseball of un? kind for which trie fan has longed and hoped and prayed; baseball of the bet? ter kind, to repeat, but for which Mr. Kan was Informed he was n?t willing to pay. This piebald statement was given the Ho yesterday; given the He In so emphatic a form that to bring It ugr.'n to life will be merely to Insult tho men and women who paid and saw what Kniest C Landgraf and Al I.ownham had done out of their con? fidence In the pcoplo of Richmond. They have paid 'he price for ball play? ers and they have secured them. That's the answer. Crowd starts Early. Long, yes. very long before the game began the crowd started on Its journey to Lee Park. At first It was a mere straggling line. Then it be? gan to grow. Zigzagging its way through the open space between the If You Get It at "KAIIN'S" I_it is Good._I We save you money on all "High-Grade" Clothing, Hats and Toggery?Why not take the time to j>?v no * visit? 7/3 C.?/tOA? the toggery shop I er- line and the gute, It looked like nothing so much as a sea of laugh? ter. Beginning In a jocular a I rain, It all ended seriously enough. The ?. .lied Suitis League had come to .stay, was the verdict, and the United I States League, so far as the Rich j inoiid and Washington clubs ure con? cerned, has the goods to make It a fixture. Too much cannot l>e said In praise ! of Krnest C. Landgrat. When the league was a-borning, antf when many laughed at him, he selected Richmond as tho one city he wanted. There were other cities he could have had; (for Instance, Cincinnati, or New York, or Cleveland, or Buffalo, or Baltimore -or many others. He picked Richmond; and when they told htm that he was foolish, that this was a hush town, that It couldn't possibly support a real ball club, lie still stuck. When they wanted to throw Richmond out of tho league, he fought for his property. Ho won, and the ball game yesterday is the result. R'chmond has cause to be proud of the showing made. Nowhero in the. league was there a belter crowd. No I where In the leuguu did the people givo a warmer welcome. No v'. hero In the league did the people put more money Into tho coffers. And nowhere in tho league, If the game yesterday is any criterion, h:ia the. , owner of the franchise brought to? gether a better ball club. Chirr Hooter Sydaor Chief Hooter Sydnor and his band of forty Started early. Up and down Hroad Street They puraded with their corps of buglers. Out to the park they came, this noble forty, and they did ' make the welk'n ring. There was j no mistaking them. They are for I R'chmond, and they made it known j in every conceivable way?with nolae i from cymbals, triangles, horns and in the good old-fash'oned way by Just yelling. Not to bo outdone, several other parties In tallyhos made, the journey, adding their welcome to the general howdy-do. When Umpire Gassmeycr called "Play ballI" overy -available seat in grandstand and bleachers had been taken, and tho crowd was roped in ao ns to prevent an overflow Into the i Held. Both managers agreed that the jguino should be played without hin-; 'drance to tho fielders. The batteries I wero announced aa Taylor and Blue | for Richmond, with Prank'Pfeifer and ,Tobln doing tho honors for Washing? ton. There was a shout ln# unison, .and Kossnlch's Band began playing j "Dixie.'' Th?;n there was more shout I |ng. Horns wero blowing, cymbals j were sounding, every possible manl- ! fcstatlon of delight was shown. The United States League season hod be? gun. Briskly and without hesitation the . Richmond "Hens" trotted to tho leid, j Hill Taylor chose a curve hall as his first offering. Into Bert Blue's big glove It came, and strike ono hnil' been L recorded ugainst Fallon, first up fur iliu visitors. Ho was out on strikes. So was Qua Dundon, whlio Adler ga\e Sox Seybold Iiis first try with a fly ball reaching nearly tu tnc fence. Not during uny other Inning were tho visi? tors dangerous. At times some vicious swata went to the outer gardens, but j O'Hare, Seybold and McFarlund were equal to the occasion. Bach of those three gathered high ones off of the fence, Seybold featuring with a one liand stab of a swat urdiuarily i_uud for the circuit. Twice tho Waahlng toniuna got a man to third, but both linn;: it was after two were out. For Richmond, the game was won in the first Inning. Prout was fooled by PfCffcr, Hoffman was out from the pitcher to first. O'Hare doubled to left, and Sox Seybold was passed. Her moM McFarlond came to thu rescue, digging up a safety, hcoring O'Hare with Hie run which won thu game. Score Srcoud Hun. The secon?] run came in the fifth. AI Newnham uncorked uno of his fa? mous twisters tu light, and scored on I'rout's neat puke to centre. other opportunities wore offered, but dan? ger was never near, and so what was the use? The game was murked by tile fast work of both clubs. As an exhibition It was marked by tho strong defensive play of both clubs. Chance after chance to score was killed by excellent work. One of the prettiest bits of work uf the game came in the sixth. Pfeffer ha<i walked and Fallon alao drew a pass. Dundon tried to advance the runners, but quick work on the part of Taylor caught Pfeffer nt third. Adler then laid down a tantallsCr In front of Hlue. It was the hit-and-run, and Fallon had passed third. Hort grabbed the leather and by a eiulek and per? fect heave caught Adler, and op tue return from Bohaiiuon, Fallon was caught n mile at the plate. Catcher Tobln, for the visitors, ha? his little finger split in the. nfth. when, with the- hit and run on. Hlue offered at a high ball, the bat catching the backstop, putting him out of the game, lloru substituted and caught t good game, grabbing one fly ball while making a somersault. Fast and snappy, with never any lagging, the game won the fans Another record crowd will be nut to-day. FROM DANVILLE Brandon Gets Charitable in Third Inning, and Roanoke * Scores Three.
