Gotham Fans Roar
When Pitcher Gives
Ruth Base on Balls
NEW YORK, May 26.—After grooving
one for Babe Ruth, that took a ride
into the upper right field stand yester
day, “Dutch'' Leonard plaved safety
first the next time with the demon slug
ger. He walked him.
The fans moaned. They “razzed - ’ Leon,
ard, called Hugh Jennings a joy killer.
New York fans are paying good money
to see Babe in his role of ball mur
derer. and they don’t like to see him
fooled.
Leonard Isn't the only pitcher walk
ing Ruth in tight places, and Ruth
isn't the only slugger being walked in
pinches.
Instead of curbing the pass, the legis
lation enacted last winter has been noth
ing but an official complaint and a lit
tle heeded at that.
It was thought that confining the
catchers activities to the limits of the
catchers’ box, the pitcher would be
forced to shoot them over. But Ray
Schalk. Steve O'Neil, Frank Snyder.
Muddy Ruel and others have been abls
to take all kinds of wild shots without
stepping over the “foul line."
“The rules against the intentional pass
have not been a success in the expected
degree,” John A. Heydler. president of
the National league, said today.
Oil, Not Resin, Is Now
Attracting Giant Jess
NEW YORK, May 25.—Jess Willard's
nose is leading him to oil, not to resin.
He's through with canvas carpets and
padded ropes.
The ble fellow, former champion of the
world, said so himself here today.
Browned like a plainsman, fat only to
the extent of 270 pounds, the huge Kan
san looks fit. Again a background of
dark tan skin, multiple gray hairs on
his temple stand out in sharp contrast.
“Eevery day since last August I have
spent from tea to fourteen hours in the
open, either in the saddle or on a buck
board, riding over the plains.
“Getting ready to come back? Never!"
In his first statement since he came to
New York on what he declares a business
trip entirely foreign to the ring he in
sisted that he is through with the fight
game.
"Fighting is a young man's game. I’m
going to make my stake in the future st
a game where age is not a handicap—at
oil propeeting. I feel sure that Fred
Fulton and I could make some good
money In a fight, but it would take long
preparation and if I devote the same
time to my other business I can get the
same returns."
