MANY CHANGES IN
EQUIPMENT
But the Dangerous Spike is
Still Used and injures
Many Men
TEAM
'
The equipment used by baseball players
has undergone changes from time to time,
which have not kept pace with the
changes in the rules of the game. There
Is, of course, a good reason for this in the
fact that experiments necessary to arrive
at sound results are expensive, long drawn
out anti most frequently prove a source
of loss instead of gain to the Investigator,
whereas the adoption of a simple rule
may benefit the game wonderfully. A
man may be a fine player, and yet have
little originality, even In relation to those
objects which he must continually use,
and which he feels should bo Improved or
dune away with altogether.
Bresnahan must bo credtlcd with the
latest addition to baseball paraphernalia.
It took independence ami foresight to lead
the way and wear his shin and knee
guard. Willie lids appliance Interferes
slightly with the speed of the catcher in
his pursuit of foul flies, it adds to the
catcher's confidence In every other emerg
ency. and thereby really results on the
whole In quickening and strengthening the
position hack of the plate.
It is not necessary to go
history in order to explain the changes
that have taken place from the day of the
flimsy canvas and leather shoe without
any "spike" or ''piate,'^ to the present
■hen the high-class player 1s equlp
l\o ancient
timeJIM
ped with a low. lightweight shoe made of
the finest, strongest imported leather, fit
ted with hand-made ''spikes" five-eighths
of an Inch long, with knlfe-likc edges and
angles and constituting the most danger
element of the national game of the
OU8
period.
When the spike« or points of these
plates become dull the file la frequently
brought Into use by the player and the
original danger increased by carelessness
or intention. Player after player Is In
jured—often several In one game. Many a
sits on the bench or remains
valuable ma
at home for weeks and sometimes months
at a time as a result of "spiking bees."
Can a practical, comparatively safe
"spike" be designed? asks a well-known
follower of the game, who ansn'ers the
question! himself with an emphatic "yes."
He says that experiments which have
been conducted for the past six months
safer than the present design Is quite pos
slide. "I will go so far as to say that at
leasT seventy-five per cent, of the dan
ger rising from the use of to-day'» 'spikes'
be eliminated with little or no loss of
the runner's speed or surefootedness."
