Treadway's Fowl Hit That Struck Fair,:
but Was Declared Foul — When
Tammy Tucker Saw Snakes — A|
Batted Ball That Never Came Back. :
Baseball rules are supposed to covet,
every possible emergency that may
arise during a game, yet a dozen Times
a week In gome_ npol^ or cui ner of tbe
world roerc arises a situation over
which there are certain to l>c bitter
disputes ami which the umpire alone
may Judge.
Even in the big leagues these things
occur. One did on the old Eastern
park grounds at Brooklyn In a game
between Philadelphia and the Peram
The decision of the umpire was up
held by President Nick Young, al
though It still is open to dispute.
It happened that In the seventh In
ning, with two men on bases, Tread
way hit a line drive down the left
deld line. The ball beyond doubt was
going foul, for It was curving toward
the foul line rapidly. Gaffney, who
was umpiring the game, was standing
at tbe plate squinting down tbe line,
bis eye following the ball.
Suddenly a flight of pigeons swept
aleng. The ball struck one of the pi
geons, knocking It to the earth, and the
hall Itself swerved from its course and
atruck the ground a foot inside the
foul line. The Brooklyn runners raced
around the bases, but Gaffney waved
them back and declared the hit foulI
There was a long wrangle, which re- j
suited in Brooklyn protesting the'
game, but Uncle Nick upheld Gaffney.
Jiggers Donahue always had a ter
roe of all sorts of snakes, toads and
bugs, and this terror once nearly loot
Chicago a victory over Washington.
Jo* Can tl lion knew of this e version,
and whan tha Senator* opened In Cbl
eago Cantllkm spent the early aftne
noon digging fishing warms, grabs end
th* Ilk*, and he arrived at the park
with • couple of pans filled with than,
Joe welted saver*! hmtwga ■»* then,
with one of the Senators on flint, he
began sprinkling worms around th*
•nek. Jiggers did net notice It far a
minute, and. indeed, not until the
Washington player ran aff the hag te
draw the throw. The ball came low,
and Just before b* etaopad to ootch
It Jiggers saw the ground covered
with worms. He let out a yell and
Jumped a foot In the air. Ho managed
to block tbe ball, however, end ««»*
In a hurry up cal! for John to sweep
the ground around the base
All through the game Can til Ion and
l St w
his men sprinkled worms and
around Jiggers and kept him In a i
of terror, but with the aid of the broea'
he managed to frustrate his tormentor*
and escape without an error, and the
following day he appealed to the um
pire to make the Senators quit.
Tommy Tucker, however, was not M
lucky as Jiggers. He lost a game fot
Washington to Chicago once and start
ed a battle all because of a trick Bill
Dahlen and Bill Everett put up on him
Tom never did like snakes. Indeed,
he held them in abhorrence, and lu
some way Dahlen discovered thla
lYpshington was To'play Chicago that
afteimoJh, aud during the morninf
practice on the west side grounds Dah
ten and Everett discovered a small
gartersniike 'and treasured it up.
Along In the fourth inning Everett'
cracked out a bit, and as soon as h«
landed on first base Dahlen, lgnorinj
his usual custom, ran out to coach, and
a moment later he slipped the hnrmlesl
little reptile to Everett, who dropped If
Into Tucker's hip pocket. A
Tommy discovered the snake just a*
the pitcher was delivering the ball,
and, with a yelp, he deserted first
base. The shortstop gathered up the
ball on the run and started to throw t*
second, but was too late and threw
toward first Tommy was twenty feri
•ft the base, Jumping up and down anrf
hunting for something with which t*
kill that snake, and the bell went ts
the stands, and Chicago scored foot
runs In the round.
Tucker protested wildly, but tbe
pipe couldn't find anything abost
snakes In the rot® book and let It g#
at that
But possibly th® hardest decision ss
umpire ever tackled fell to tbe lot <* ,
Jack Stratton, who was umpiring »
