Chicago, Oct 14 The roliowiiiE flg

ficial statistician of the American
league, are official as tar as that
league is concerned, and the National
league figures, to be announced later
by Secretary John M. Heydler, will in
all probability differ very little from
those of Mr. Howe.

continnod up to the last moment with
the terrific slugging they had shown
all season In the number of total
bases Jackson showed to the front,
while Cobb and Jackson tied at the.
numoer of hits, a remarkable coinci
dence in the fight between the two
great men. Milan and Collins of Phil
adelphia show as the best base steal
ers in the younger organization.
In the National Zimmerman ends
with about the same fat average he
has maintained all year. Bill Sweeney,
Evers and Meyers are the others of
the big four. Evors, ten year3 in the
game, slight, weak, shows remarkable
form for a year in which he was pre
dieted to be ''all in."
While the total number of stolen
bases In the parent league shows
ahead of those In the American, the
older organization docs not show men
who stick out like Collins, Milan,
Speaker and Cobb.
Joe Wood, star of the world's ser
ies, shows as the best pitcher of bis
league, with an average tho highest in
35 years, since the palmy days of Al
sprlng. Plank Is again the greatest of
left-handers, while Coombs and John
son are well up. In the national Tes
reau one of the disappointments of
the world's series, is the virtual lead
er. The figures:

Two Interested spectators were
watching a "big league" ball game in
Chicago. One was a Chicago busi-'
ness man, the other a Kansan, who
had decided to see the Chicago team
play before he returned home, says
a Chicago exchange: Drawn together
by the camaraderies spirit in the air
at all ball games they began a con-1
versation. I
"Pretty windy today, ain't It. '
friend?" voluntoered the Kansan
"Well, 1 should smile," responded I
tho Chicagonn. I
"Sorter reminds me of a ball game
back home when a young cyclone i
swept across the diamond Just "at thel
end of the game," said the Kansas
"Tell us about it," sugested the
"Flatvllle and Hcoptown were play
ing the deciding game for the league,
championship," began the Kansan.
"The game had been played to the
ninth inning, with the Ilooptown team
one run to the good, Flatvillo was
to have their last chance at bat.
"The Flatvllle players faced tho
Hooptown pitcher with grim determi
nation, for everything dopended on
their rather slim chance to make good
In that Inning. Finally one man
reached third baBe, There were two
out when 'Red' Ryan, the big catcher,
stepped to the plnte with blood in his
eye. The pitcher wound up, tho ball
shot from Jils hand, 'Red' swung on
the ball with savage fury and ran
for first base. Flatvllle rans rose up
and cheered, but their cheers turned
to groans when they saw that the ball
had popped almost straight up in the
air and the Hooptown catcher was
crouched directly beneath It as it de
scended. It seemed only an instant
when the ball would plunk safelv Into
his big mitL
Suddenly it was seen that the ball
hud hesitated in its descent and was
veering toward tho pitcher. The pitch
er then braced himself to catch the
ball. It could now be seen by the
crowd that it was going beyond tho
pitcher This takes a while to tell,
but It all happened In a minute or so.
The shortstop aud second ba&oman
both ran behind the pitcher to back
him up should the ball pass over his
head. Then the ball asaln hesitated
in Its flight as a terrific gale of wind
swept across tho fiold.
"The wind-tossed ball now sailed
over the heads of both the Bhortstop
and second baseman and the center
fielder turned and legged like mad
for deep center while tho right fielder
raced diagonally across the field be
hind Bocond base to attempt to cap
ture the still flying sphere The run
ner, who had been on third base, had
long since crossed the home plato and
'Red' was now speeding past third,
"The entire crowd was up watching
Intently tho ball, too surprised to
shout and apparently oblivious of the
galo which whJBtled around them with
Btich force as to well night carrv
thein off their fooL On and on the
bewitched ball flew, passing 50 feet
over the hoad of the panting right
fielder Just as 'Red' Ryan passed safe
ly over the home plate. The ball 3till
flew on, seemingly buoyed up by a
6trange wind pressure from beneath.
Further and further Into deep center
the centor fielder raced. Tow tho
ball seemed dropping. Every eyo was
fastened on the fast flying fielder and
the fast dropping ball. A jell went
up, 'It's going over his head.'
"At last, with the expenditure of
every ounce of strength, the speeding
fielder leaped Into the air and threw
his gloved left hand high above his
head and caught the ball, barely re
covering his balance as he came to
earth. He held the ball above his
head as evidence that the game was
over. Mingled sounds t vociferous
Joy and deep sorrow wore borno away
I upon the wind as the Hooptown fansj
rushed upon the field and carried the
hero center fielder away on their
shoulders. 'Red' Ryan stood on the
side lines with his hands on his hips
and an expression of oxtrcino wonder
ment and dejection upon his face.
" 'Deed that was some game," fin
ished the Knnsan, but the Chicago
man was already three seats away and
still beating a rapid retreat, casting
ever and anon an apprehensive glance
over his shoulder
A play enme up In a Central league
game in Springfield during the season
which caused a good deal of discus-1
slon. A batter hit the bnll over tho I
fence for a homo run. He Jogged
around the bases but failed to touch j
second as. he passed it. The over-J
sight was noticed .by the side in thel
field and the pitcher immediately call-,
ed for a new ball, which was thrown
out to him by the umoire, thus putting I
it in play. Meanwhile the batter had I
been told that he had failed to touch
second and he had turned around and,
was going back to remedy the over-'
sight when the pitcher threw the bnll
down there before he could reach the;
base. The question was whether he)
was out or noL
He was not out A baiter who hits I
the ball over tho ience is entitled to
a homo run, provided he goes through
with the formality of touching all tho
bases and the home plato. No hasty
play can be made on him In a case
of this kind. Of course, if ho had re
fused to go back and touch second ho
could be called out, but so long aa he
was going back to touch the bag it Is
Impossible to call him out by a hurried
throwlnK of a new ball into play.
Whon the ball is hit orcr the fonce It
is perfectly legal to put another ball
Into play, which is done by tho pitch
er holding it while standing In the
box, but this cannot bo done until
the man who achieved the hit has bad
a chance to do his part No hasty
action can be taken. Of course, if
the ball had not gone over the fence,
but had been In play all the tlmo,
the batter would have been out for
not touching second If the play had
not been made on him. But when the
ball goes out of bounds the only way
the batter could be retired would be
for him to rofuse to mako the circuit,
which he did not do In this case, be
ing perfectly willing to go back and
touch second when he found that ho
had missed the bag.

During tho last decade the bright,
espocial lights of the oeral seasons
have hailed from almost every posi
tion. Last yenr ho was an end, the
one, only and peerless Sam White of
Princeton, who- picked up fumbled
balls and galloped over half the field
length in scoring victories over Ynle,
Harvard nnd Dartmouth. The pre

team, tore oft open field runs of daz

end, was the sensation, his wing be
ing totally Impregnable all year and
his work in getting down under kicks

in history.
All-Round Kicker.
The season 1908 brought forth the
man considered by many the greatest
that ever played. He was a full back,
the tremendous Ted Coy of Yale, the
best all-round kicker of his year and
the most powerful line pulverizer
within memory That this year will
offer a man even closel;. comparable
with- him Is not to be expected. An
other fullback was the star of 1907.

made a field goal that beat Yale. Wal-;
