RE STEIN yester-
Ri’ day won himself
IT 'h® being
f * M the original gloom
K dispeller. With*just
one long, healthy,
solemn, swat of the
ball he cleared off
one of the darkest
J skies that ever gath-
ered over the ball
a yard in Pennant-
town, and ehanged
VQ|B up a howling band
of knocking demons
into as happy a
bunch of boosters
as ever shoved the victory wagon down
a pike. To be a real champeen spot
lighter, a fellow has to do something
really unexpected, absolutely unlooked
for a thriller from Thrillersville. Fire
stein did all of these with one swipe.
A Pretty Story.
The story 1 ’Tia a pretty one.
The Bronchos broke loose in the first
inning yesterday in a way that made
me feel like apologizing for all I had
ever said about their lacking ginger.
After Stark had gone out, Leidy drew
a walk. Mclver then bunted-one real
hard. It means something when Mac
does this. Yesterday it meant a three
bagger to deep center. Stinson eased
one of his pretty singles over second
end Mac came home. Walsh forced
Stinson at second, but broke up a dou
ble by a hard sprint. Bastian then hit
a beauty to center for two bases, scor
ing Walsh. The three runs injected a
world of ginger into the home boys and
they worked mighty pretty. A couple
of hits, a batter hit and Stark’s sacri
fice fly in the fourth brought in an
other run.
Game Looked Sweet.
With four to the good and young
Mitchell working like a veteran, the
game looked as sweet as an iced water
melon and people were just waiting for
the finish, not even a little cloud on
their horizon of joy. So, when, in the
- seventh Mclver walked and scored a
funny run, people thought it was a
great joke—we didn’t need it, but it
was fine to watch the big fellow sprint
around the bases.
Tunny, Oh Yes.
After Mac had walked, he took a
good Itad-off first and Moore flashed
the ball like a bullet to catch him. The
heave was wide and the ball took a
couple of *erooked bounces, struck a
blade of grass or something and slipped
through the wire of the grandstand into
Double Distilled

one of the boxes. If the box bad been
occupied by a buneh of Dallas rooters,
a different tale might have been told.
But it wasn't. So, when the Dalias
fielders implored that the pill might be
poked back through the wire, the ap
peal fell on deaf care, the ball reposed
safely behind the wires and Mclver
made a great attempt to break the rec
ord from second base to the plate. After
lie bad registered the ball was returned
to the diamond. It was sure funny.
In the eighth the youngster, who had
been pitching fine ball, slowed up per
ceptibly, but at that, with sharper sup
port, he shouldn’t have been in trouble.
McAvoy and Tullos started the inning
with clean hits to right. Jackson binged
a stinger down to Firestein which that
gentlemanly third baseman succeeded
in knocking out of Stark’s way, and
McAvoy scored. Connaway walked, fill
ing the bases. Maloney flew out to
Leidy. Storch hit one at Alexander,
who had replaced Walsh, that got away
from him and Miller hit safe, the whole
of which netted four runs, and left
Storch at third.
O. Drucke was then sent in to bat
for Moore and hit a fly to center. It
looked like suicide for Storch to try
to score on the chance, but he did, and,
although Cap made a fair throw to the
plate, Schan handled the ball back of
the counting station and the riwier
was called safe for tho tying run. It all
happened so quick that everybody was
Good Old Big Harry.
Big Harry tßen took the rubber,
the nifty fashion in which he wheezed
j three of the Giants—the very three who
had started the finish in the previous
inning— went a long ways toward
cheering the crowd up. It was fairly
estimated that out of the nine swings
allowed McAvoy, Tullos and Jackson
in this inning, none of the batters came
within three feet of the ball.
In San Antonio’s half of the eighth
Schan caused a momentary flutter with
a nice two-bagger, but Miller, who bat
ted for Mitchell, couldn’t quite get
enough steam on his wallop and Storch
I caught it up against the fence. It was a
' good try and a close call.
Peters, who had replaced Moore, re
tired the Brones in quick order in the
ninth, but in the tenth, after Alexander
had gone out, Bastian drew a walk and
Firestein walloped his pretty one over
the fence.
j The eighth inning gloom that settled
over the fans extended to the skies,
which began to weep, seemingly in sym
pathy. When Firestein came to tho res
cue, however, the rain stopped and it
cleared up in all quarters.

his back in three different places, on

Walsh drew an injury in the seventh
that may be a pretty bad one. Moore
broke a fast curve straight at the
husky little second baseman, and it hit
him 8n the first finger of his left hand,
fairly tearing the nail off.
A good deal of discussion was caused
by the home-run that broke up the
game, lots of fans contending that as
only one run was needed the hit should
only go for a three-bagger. It’s hard
to figure how anybody could dope it
out that way. There’s no rule that
could possibly beat a man out of a
home run that is made over the fence.
It might be possible that a player
could lose a home run hit inside the
lot, as the game would be over when the
first man crossed the plate, and the
fielders consequently would not try to
return the ball quickly. But when the
ball is put over the fence it constitutes
a home run—and the fairness of base
ball rules would not seek to beat a bat
ter out of his earned glory.

homer—it was enough. Likewise he isn’t caring whether the score was 6 to

“Peck’s Bad Boys,” a strong ama
teur team, organized recently to fly the
colors of the Peck furniture store, will
break out tomorrow in its first game,
the Jok’rs being the try-out team. The
game will be played on the Jones ave
nue diamond. H. S. Bennett, the man
ager, says the elub will take the road
as soon as a route is made up for an
extended trip. The team, which is
looked on as a fast one, will probably
line up in the initial game as follows:
C. Morales or J. O'Toole, catchers;
Flaig or Jones, pitchers; Hildebrand,
first base; Buechler, second base; Onion,
third base; Slimp, shortstop; Harris,
left field; Eggleston, center field; Mc-
Fall, right field.
Owing to a misunderstanding between
the captain and manager of the Wash
er Bros. Co. team, the game with New
Braunfels has been postponed. This
leaves the New Braunfels team without
an opponent for Sunday, and any team
in the eity who wfshes e to cross bats
with them can get busy and ring up
Ed. Staats at that town.
Sporting Editor: After repeated ef
forts we have so far failed to arrange
a game with the Jokers, and would
thank you to challenge them for us
through the sporting columns of your
paper, and oblige. Government Hill

Cincinnati, 0., June 19.—Baseball by
electric light put on as an experiment
at the Cincinnati National league
grounds last night was pronounced a
great success by President Herrmann of
the National baseball commission. Man
ager Clark Griffith and other authori
ties. Forty-five hundred persons saw
the game and the batting, base running
and throwing, they declared, was equal
to the daylight game. It was admitted
that more’ light was necessary to add
to the perfection of the team work, in
the outfield.
Tho teams that lined up were picked
nines from Cincinnati Lodge No. 5, B.
P. O. E., and a similar nine from New
port. Ky., Lodge No. 273, Cincinnati
winning, 8 to 5.

When Arlie Latham, former 4
great third baseman and come- 4
dian of the diamond, was urn- 4
piring in the O. and P. league, 4
he was accompanied by an old 4
friend to a game one day. +
“You are not as funny as 4
you used to bo,” the friend re- 4
marked to Latham, who was 4
rather quiet. 4
“Not as funny?” said La- 4
thnm. “Wait until you sec my 4
judgment on balls and strikes 4
,and you’ll say I’m funnier than 4
* ever before. ” 4

Patterson, both old-timers, have bee*
laid in the shade. The great query i*
San Antonio last night was on a simpl*
point of baseball, and many’s the ar*
gument and bet that arose from tht
Old-timers like Maloney, Fred Mosw
bach, as well as a majority of ball play*
ers, argue that the score of yesterday’4
game was 6to 6; that Firestein’s ball 4
which was hit over the fence was ai
triple. They say only one run waa
needed, and when that scored the game
terminated. The rules seem to beat
them out. Under the heading, “Extra-
Inning Games,” it states that in atiy in.
ning after the ninth the game shall ter
minate when the winning run scores.
In the rule defining the bating oG
the ball over the fence, it says the bat
ter shall be entitle dto a home run.
There are no unlesses or ifs about it. Il
he is given a home run then his score
must be counted.
However, there are hundreds of playa
in baseball that are not covered by tha
rules. This is one of them, and tha
fact that old-timers are almosf
unanimous in declaring the hit a
three-bagger and the score 6 to 5, will
probably be borne out when the mattes
is finally decided.
In the meantime, what difference
does it make?
