Xot that "El Pa;o" is not good enough for any baseball team that ever donned a flannel uit. But it is a pet name that is "wanted one by which the team may be affectionately called by the loving fans much as lovers call each other after the fowls of the field and the birds of the barnyard. Every team has such a name and it is now up to El Paso to get busy and find a suitable name for the boys in white. "White Sox was the term applied to the Tvhite leg horns last year but that name, adopted from the favorites of the' Chicago Amer- '.can league team, ceased to have any application when the color of the ho siery was changed in the new fall fair uniforms. liughie Fullerton, impressed by the songs and calls of the Wild Cat club at the Sox smoker, dubbed the local team the "Wild Cats" and called them that in his telegraph report of the second White Sox game here. The name "Cac tus Club" has been suggested but this is not distinctive enough as the league is known by that name. Douglas calls its pets the "Demons," Cananea. for the want of a better name, uses the words' "Copper Diggers" for its team. Bisbee is Known as the "Mucker' team, aud vlbuquerque calls its team the "Grays." It Is up to the El Paso fans to get busy and dig up a name for their club. Young as It it, the club needs to be christened, and since the team belongs to the fans, It is up to them in the role of fond and doting parents to suggest a pet name j fOT ?hf f1-nH tvliT' Tint "WorrninlfV ' for The c-liih tvIi-l- nr,t wa,-v,Mr'c tt ?!.-,? ,. u . mu.icent Cananea-Bisbee game which has a suggestion to The Herald and have It printed; see how it sounds. Corr, the catcher for the old Andreas team of four years ago. who has been with the desert league In California dur ing the past winter season, was here Tuesday on his way to join the Clinton, Iowa, team at Davenport. This team Is owned by Ted Sullivan, the veteran baseball authority, tvIio was here ahead of the White Sox. Corr will play third with the Clinton team and also as change catcher. He was signed by Sul livan because of his ability to hit, as he led the desert league In California with his hitting. The El Paso boys who have gone high er up, continue to appear in the box scores of the different teams with which they are playing. Mills and Galloway played -with the Shreveport team against San Antonio again Monday, Lamar be ing replaced by Cowan on third. Galloway failed to connect with BI1 llard's curves for a safety an Gal. has an error to his credit In the last column of the tabulated score. Mills is also credited with dropping a high fly in the story of the game, but the official scorer gave the batter a hit instead of mark ing an error against the center fielder. Mills is leading off the batting order, and is hitting the pill out to the gardeners and Is expected to put it where they "ain't as soon as he gets going good. Monday, in the fifth Mills hit a home run to deep left, scoring three runs. He also got a single. Cin cinnati did not play Tuesday and there Is no report from "Bad Hop" Wingo Anderson.

"Touching Second" by John J. Evers and Hugh S. Fullerton has appeared from the press. This is a baseball story that is supposed to put a crimp in the tome which recently appeared in print under the title of "Won in the Ninth." by Christy Mathewson. Evers, the speediest little second baseman who ever stabbed a man stealing second, and Hugh Fullerton, who was here with the Sox, are the perpetrators of the latest message to the baseball reading public. The book is touted as "Inside baseball" In the big league, and if Fullerton and Evers tell half they know of the inside game there should be reading to make one dizzy between the covers of the book.

Getting away on one" good foot and one bad one, the two big leagues have been hobbling along on first one foot and then the other, the complaint caused by too much rain and cold. May first seems to be the logical MY EST PLAY By Willie Keeler Copyright, 1910, by American Press Asso ciation. I've been asked to describe -what I think was the cleverest play that 1 ever pulled off during my long career n the diamond. Well, that certainly Is a hard one to hand me. Tou see. I've been playing many, many years and have engaged in many hundreds of hard fought games, so it is not an easy matter for me to recall what the fans say is the brainiest or most bril liant play I ever made. A majority of the fans who are not in touch with the inner workings of a baseball club fail to stop to consider that doing the unexpected on the diamond is part of the life of a professional baseball player. In fact, he has his daily task to perform and must always be on & ri&. V&A WHiXiXE KEEEiEB, VETERAN BALI. PJjjLTf TEB. the job, studying out intricate plays and ready to grasp the opportunity of fered to help his team to victory. He is like auj' head of a department in the business world. He is paid for using his brains, hands and feet in an endeavor to make his employer a win ner. There is one play that I pulled off last "summer at American League park which required the quickest kind of thinking. Detroit had runners on sec ond and third bases, and there was but one out Mclntyre lifted a long j foul fly to right field. I started after tne Dan on the dead run. I got within reach of it finally, but when the crowd was expecting me to make a great catch I suddenly dropped my hands to my side and allowed the ball to strike the ground. For a moment the crowd started to groan and then broke out into a round of applause that gradual ly spread, all over the park. Why? If I had caught that ball Stanage would have scored for third, it being too long a throw to get him at the plate. As it was foul nobody could advance. Mc Intyre then hit a liner to Demmitt. but no score resulted, and the next batter "flied" out to Elberfeld. Quick thought had saved a run. Three years ago I made exactly the same play at High lander park and .was roundly censured. The fans today know baseball. Many times 1 have been asked, "Is HE'S FIR R5ri5AiH5fW3 HE R.eFuse,S TO BS ttEMBSS OF AMY PG-C5 FOCCS THW UJU-i- fti-UOvu ahy Such CJUCfsKUY mbasii sickly M5M S He HAS COM IN CONTACT UJCTH juHiu orn& o thb FrrresT- HF RSSGeD TO-DAV MIYtuAV THTS WHAT He TOt-OU time for the opening of the s'eason, for it is seldom consistently fine baseball -weather before that time except in the haven of baseball, the south-west. No doubt president Lynch and president B. Johnson "will hasten to change the i schedule as soon as they read this, hence the nunc" Stories Of the Diamond, No. 1 baseball faster today than it was twen ty years ago?' My answer is "Yes." The game of today is faster and hard er, more scientific and more strenuous than that of long ago. The game of today requires more team work, inside ball and more cleverly executed plays. Sacrifice hitting, the double steal, the squeeze play, bunting, the hit and run .game and other strategic plays un known or unnracticed by the men of twenty years ago have worked a trans formation in basebalL Many of the old timers were the equals of or superiors to the best play-1 ers of today, but as teams they were 'deficient in a knowledge of many inno vations and discoveries which make baseball the greatest of all games. 4- 4"i"5"i'-i"5' 4i 4 & f STATISTICAL BALL.
