A few days ago the Cincinnati Reds
bunted Phil Doughlas out of a bill
The performance was interesting benotion

The cause was that once Christy
Matthewson had been bunted out of a
game himself and he never forgot it.
This season when he took charge
of the Reds at Shreveport he spent an
hour a day teaching his men to bunt. [?>
"Bunting is invaluable to a team fr
when opposed by a big pitcher," Matty
explained. "Successive bunts rat- ji
tie a big man, who has trouble hand- ,.
ling slowly hit balls down in his territory
and the coolest man in the busi- 01
ness is likely to throw away a ball a
game under those conditions." lr
Then Matty went on to explain how <ji
this was brought home to him in a
game at St. Louis a few years ago. 1
The game was engineered by Miller th
Huggins, one of the best guessers in wl
the league.
Formerly Matty had had little trou- Li

the ball game. Bunt followed bunt
and a wild throw or two told the fitory.
Matty took that experience as a lesson
and will work it out on his own
ball club. He has already started and

big National league pitchers don't feel
the sting of defeat just because of that
Miller Huggins is a great exponent
of the bunt. It made him a successful
hitter when ho was playing regularly.
Huggins was small and did not have
the strength to be a slugger but for
years he kept near the top of the list

Practically every major league manager
will admit that bunting at the
right time is the best kind of inside
baseball, yet most of them make no
attempt to teach their players the bunting
One reason for this probably Is that
players do not like to bunt. They
want to wallop the ball and it is hard
to get them out of the notion.
