Hap's Hirelings Forced to Go 11
Innings to Win After
noon Session
P Slip Hap Hcgan's warriors the long
end of two scores. In the morning yes
terday the Villagers found Sacramen
to easy picking, winning by an 8 to 3
margin, but after lunch it took all of
eleven innings and the best in the
locker to hand the tail enders a 1 to 0
Willett and Arellanes were the heroes
of. the post meridian fest, and it was
anybody's heat up to the time Brown
slammed out the single that sent Roy
. Brashear In wtih the only run of the
afternoon. Poor generalship deprived
the Villagers of a couple of chances to
. end it earlier, and the Senators were
not there with the club when they
pushed a man as far around as the far
corner. . .
After the teams had battled through
the first part of the ninth without a
single bell ringer, lt looked very much
like Vernon in the fading section of
the frame, and the first real excitement
of the day was on tap. The fans came
to their feet and rooted for the Villag
ers, but nothing happened and business
was continued to the eleventh.
Roy Brashear started the fireworks |
with a neat double to left. Hosp bunt- j
ed safely, putting Roy on third. Hap |
Hogan, who had horned his way into ;
the argument by batting for Fisher in
the ninth, refused the responsibility and
sent Coy in to wield the stick when it
came his turn. Coy's effort to Arella
nes forced Hosp at second, and Lind
say was killed off on a foul to Danzig. !
Then Drummond Brown proved himself
a hero by slamming out a screamer to
left center, giving Brashear a chance
to register the finish.
In the morning session home runs
were the feature, Roy Brashear and
Hosp being the swatting heroes, the
latter's fence clearing being good for
two runs. Fitzgerald and Schafer were
the opposing slabsters, and the, latter
had plenty the better of their argu
The Senators opened the game in the
first round by sending one over, mainly ,
because of Hogan. Shinn walked and j
Val Haltren was safe on a hunt. Per- j
ry dropped one in front of the plate
and Hap held the pill to watch the ;
bases fill. After Boardman had whiffed J
Heister hit to Fisher, and Shinn beat
the peg home. In the sixth the visitors
made their other two. Van Buren
Singled and perry sent him over with a \
two-sacker. On outs by Boardman and j
Heister Perry registered.
Carlisle opened hostilities for the Vil- j
lagers wtih a single and was sent on i
his way when Burrell sacrificed and \
Ross grounded to Danzig. He scored
on a wild pitch, and then Brashear
slammed one by the guarding outposts.
Brashear drew a pass at the opening
of the fourth and Hosp repeated his
fence-clearing trick for a brace of tal
lies. In the fifth, with one down, Scha
fer walked, was sent to third on Car
lisle's double, watched Burrell fan, and
then preceded Carlisle home when a
hit by Ross over short was miffed.
On a single by Schafer in the sixth
round Fisher, who had been given a
pass and watched Lindsay and Hogan
die, scared; and a pass to Burrell In
the seventh, followed by two wild
pitches and a force at second, account
ed for the other Vernon tally.

NEW YORK, Oct. 12.—Two of the
English polo players, the earl of
Rocksavage and F. A. Gill, sailed for
home recently. Both were enthusiastic
as to their season upon the fields of
this country, but especially as to the
competitions in which the Ranelagh
team had engaged during the last two
months. As the earl of Rocksavage
Put it: . i
"The last two months of polo mark
an epoch in my life. In the Americans
I have met the finest players that the
world knows In the sport, and it has
been my good fortune to witness feats
of horsemanship and mallet work that
seemed almost Incredible. As a re
sult I am only too keen to return next
March, along with the team that will
challenge for the international cup."
According to the earl of Rocksav
age, the one regret that the English
players have was that they had not
met the strong four of the Meadow
Brook club, led by Harry Payne Whit
ney that won the cup from the Britons
last year. He recalled the fact that
in the only match which Ranelagh
played against a four of Meadow
Brook in which the Americans put
forth their leading men his side had
suffered a defeat. Still, he believed
that with the twin Grenfells—Revy
and Francis—in form, and with the
[ration of the world famous cup at
stake, the Britons would be able to
hold their own.
"The winning of the. international
challenge cup by the Americans has
served to stimulate English polo as
nothing else could possibly have done,"
continued the earl. "It has brought
about the adoption of the. American
method of rating and the abolishment
of the old. form list, for which many
Englishmen had been working for some
time. Then the tactical methods of
play provided a revel: to British
lovers of the sport. The Americans in
jected new ideas Into the game, creat
ed new ways of accomplishing the old
things, and altogether have livened
tilings tip in a truly wonderful manner.
"From every aspect our visit to Am
erica has been a most successful ven
ture, although our Canadian experi
ence* were married by skirmishes with
the customs officials, so that we did
not have our own saddles, bridles and
mallets. Earl Grey presented the
Ranelagh team with a massive cup of
silver, and the Grenfells prettily re
turned the courtesy by offering a cup
through the Canadian Polo association
which will serve as an incentive toward
the development of the sport there."
As the steamer sailed the earl said
that he would not say "goodby," for he
expected to return in a few months,
and believed that the English challeng
ing team had a fair chance of retaking
the cup In the matches which are ex
pected to be held on the Meadow Brook
field the latter part of May next year.

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12— is es
timated by representatives of the na
tional commission having charge of
the distribution of seats for the first
two baseball games In the world's se
ries here next week that $70,000 has

reserved seats at advanced prices. The
national commission has taken ex
traordinary precautions to keep the
tickets out of the hands of scalpers.
Center Fielder Oldrlng of the Phila
delphia Americans may not be able to

ments in his knee were twisted in yes

and wrenched his knee badly. It was
badly swollen today, and specialists
declared they could not tell whether
the Injury would prevent Oldring from
playing until tomorrow.

Ragged Exhibition of the English
Game Presented to Fans
at Fiesta Park
Los Angeles high school Rugby team
defeated the U. 8. ('. law school team
in a ragged exhibition of the English
game at Fiesta park yesterday after
noon, 3 to 0. The tally was made in
the second half of a goal from a free
catch by Cass. The game was a strug
gle between speed and brawn, and
neither side seemed to have had a suf
ficient grounding in the game to en
able them to refrain from American
football tactics.
The law school team started the
game well, and by a series of passes
landed the ball within striking distance
of the high boys' goal line. The young
sters held their ground, however, and
the first half ended without a score, al
though the ball remained on the high
school side of the field during most of
the play. A passing series by McClure,
Mitchell and, £>orn brought the ball
within kicking distance of the lawyers'
touch line, but .Cass failed twice to
send it over.
When the two schools' changed sides,
with the wind in the favor of the fol
lowers of Blackstone, it looked like an
easy chance, but the fates decided
otherwise. 'the collegians even suc
ceeded in sending the ball over the
L. A. H. S. goal line, but no try re
sulted, the high boys saving luckily.
As a preliminary to the main event
the Harvard military school team and
the Los Angeles second squad opposed
each other. The game ended without a
score being tallied on either side.
Mow Mitchell was the referee of the
main event. The halves were of thirty
minutes' duration.
ED PASO, Tex., Oct. 12.— Juarez
Jockey club has decided to race on
Sunday again, as that day is the best
in the week for Mexican butlngs.
Monday will be an off day as far as
racing is concerned, but Senor Ter
ra/.as' will entertain horsemen at his
ranch on that day each week with a
live bird shooting tournament. An
other attraction at Juarez will be a
big club devoted exclusively to gam
bling, which will be conducted by a
man well known as a professional.
Judge-President Awards Games
to Commuters, and Oaks
Pop Into Lead
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12.—Judge
Thomas Graham, president of the Pa
ciflo Coast baseball league, decided
today that Oakland was entitled to the
three games in which Portland played
Hetling over the protest of Captain
Wolverton. Tho decision places Oak
land in th* lead for the i pennant. ..i;*
In deciding that the games be
tween Oakland and Portland, played
on September £8, 81 and 80, must bo
awarded to the former team. Judge
Graham declared that Hetling was
clearly ineligible to play with the
Portland team because 'he had played
under*contract with Spokane until
September 25. Graham further de
clared that Portland must have known
that Hetling was ploying with Spo
kane and that the defense that ho
was still under contract to the former
nine was untenable, inasmuch as a
contract Jumper should not be al
lowed to play in championship games
of the Coast league.
Graham quoted at length the rules
of the national commission govern
ing contract Jumping, which he de
clared to be applicable to the present
case. He said that the report of
Secretary Farrell of the National as
sociation of professional leagues shdwed
that Hetling signed a contract with
Spokane on September 2 to play on
that team for $250 a month.
In concluding his decision, Graham
"It Is immaterial to me who wins
the pennant; my one atm since I as
sumed the presidency of this league
has been to see that good, fair, clean
and honest baseball is played by all
our teams.
"My duty in deciding the protest
filed by Manager Wolverton is plain.
Hetling was clearly ineligible to play
with Portland, and it Is therefore or
dered that the games In which he
participated on September 28, 29 and
30, 1910, be forfeited to the Oakland

Owner of Portland Team Says In
vestigation Has Been
Unfair and Hurried
PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 12.—When
told of the decision of Judge Graham
on the protested games, Judge W. W.
McCredle, owner of the Portland
team, said:
"Portland is going to fight the case
as long as It can. Until I see the
actual decision I cannot say what
standing it will give us before the na
tional commission, but if there Is any
ground to get the case before that
body we will take it there. At any
rate, I shall appeal from the decision
of the president of the league' to the
board of directors. I cannot say that I
see any hope in that direction, but I
will give them a chance to go on
record, anyway.
"I feel that Judge Graham has not
given us fair treatment. From the
very first he has been predisposed in
favor of Oakland, and even now the
decision Is not handed down on the
original protest. Manager Wolverton
protested the games on the ground that
Hetling belonged to Spokane. That
was shown to be absolutely false, and
Judge Graham turned to digging up
evidence himself and has evolved this
contract jumper business.
"Tho whole matter has been too hur
ried. I have been sending in the evi
dence asked for as quickly as I could
gather it. I mailed another letter to
the president yesterday, and now the
decision Is out before yesterday's letter
can be considered."

Team Work the Most Important
Point in Success of the
Football Elevens
The football season is forging for
ward. Games are being played and
the daily practices are becoming
harder. As expected, the new rules
are giving coaches and captains untold
worry. Gallons of midnight oil are
being consumed in an attempt to find
evasions of the spirit of the different
clauses. The . flying tackle, forward
pass and onslde kick are receiving
more than their share of attention.
The sharps tell us that November will
see the teams proficient in the revised
style of play. So far so good.
But the early season signs promise
trouble from an unexpected source.
The first scrimmaging has uncovered
the danger signals. Will this new
game be a detriment to team play?
Result? to 'date show a possibility of
such a condition being reached. In
dividual feats have characterized the
season to date. Of course, team play
is never developed at such an early
stage in the season. But this year the
causes are different. ■
In previous campaigns coaches have
molded thier machines slowly. The
finer parts of the mechanism did not
click smothly until late October. The
absence of team play was willed by
the coaches. They wanted their prod
ucts to acquire power by degrees. This
year there is a rule in the playing
code that will have undoubtedly a det
rimental effect on team work. It Is
the clause stating that pushing or
pulling the man with the ball Is 11
Too much stress cannot be placed on
this point. "Help the runner." It has
been the keynote 'of football. success
lor years. An eleven with real team
work always had a flock of men about
the man with the ball, pulling and
hauling him along after he was in the
arms of opponents. It had a get to
gether" feature that fired the whole
team. Championship elevens "helped
the runner" better than other teams.
Already the results of thl«#Testrlc
tlon are making themselves felt. It
has shown itself in the drills at, Yale,
Princeton and Harvard as well. ,
Of course, the rule is stilling the
mass play. It was expected to. The
committee adopted it for that reason.
But It promises to have a more far
reaching effect and clog the entire of
fensive strength of a team. "Help the
runner" was the keynote of team work
on the attack, and it will require a
Tot of hard and intelligent coaching to
obtain the same results this year with
the handicap in question.
