j expression of men who had been knd

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

verdict is tiie verd'et of a united popu?

mond Is going to have real baseball
(.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

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
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?
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.
