EL PASO HERALD i I The Greatest Play By WILBUR GOOBE. Central Figure In the Recent Sensational j.ia.uivmei uca&u& Of course I haven't been, in fast company long enough to tell much about great plays, maybe not longj enough to pretend to judge which are really w great. But I saw one in Balti xiore last season which I believe was tie greatest ever at least the great eat I ever witnessed. The play was made en the Rocb.es r grounds and by Jimmy Slagle. TbA ffcns in the big circuit know SlagleJ yerkaps better than I do 'and they Save seen bim make some wonderful plays but perhaps never one under, uch circumstances. The play camej during the early part of the season when we were fighting to keep up. close to the lead ami to hold Roches-! ttr down a bit Slagle was playing' great ball for us. You all know how fast the Rabbit was and still is.j Well, he was playing center and the game was close and exciting. There ira a lot of work for our outfield, as the Rochester bunch kept slamming away at our pitcher and mostly hit ting long flies to the outfield. The character of the grounds them selves must be taken into considera tion. The grounds aro rather strange ly 'laid out The diamond and out field are cut down to a perfect level, and tD make the outfield level part of sf hillside was scraped down, leaving a terrace around the field, which in some spots is sir feet higher than tie field Itself. Late in the game, with one out, it looked as if Rochester was going to win, although we had a run to the good and were fighting hard to hold kem back. They got Tunners on first and second before anyone was out, and Slagle came tearing forward and scooped a low line hit, holding the runners on tiieir bases. That made things look a little more com fortable until the next batter raised the ball bJgh and far to left center. Slagle had been playing deep, expect ing a long fly, or at least to prevent a long hit from going through and beating. us right there. The ball went high and on the line. There 'was a Gossip of Games Here and On Other Fields of Sport (By Ted Found. Jack Chesbro. the inventor of the7 spit ball, has been located once more since his release by the Tankees. The town of "Whitinsvllle, Mass., hav announced that It has released pitcher Chesbro as he was not up to form, "allowing 17 hits good for 31 bases in one game." "Where, for the love of Sllke, Is Whitinsville and how came Jack Chesbro, at one time .peer or pitchers, at such a place? verily, he .must have deteriorated if he allowed a bunch of independents to pound iim for 17 hits.

The rule covering this play designates that unless-it is the third strike, it is a foul, if while attempting the third strike," the batter is out. The pTbfested 'game of the Inter nationals against Globe Mills, which was thrown out, hurt one player badly and that was pitcher Salazar. The new batting averages show hjm witty a percentage of .050.

The runners held their bases an instant, saw that the ball was go ing far up on top of the terrace, and believing no one could reach it, they both started for the plate. Slagle went scooting out as fast as he could tear. He leaped, put one foot against the side of the embankment and leaped again, shooting himself upward and landing on top of the ter race. The ball was going over and straight at a big red automobile. I remember the women in the machine screeched and dodged. Just then Slagle came bounding up onto the terrace, "leaped again, stuck up both hands and grabbed that ball. The roar of the crowd warned the runners and they turned back. Slagle ran to the edge of the bank, shot the ball in, and although the runner got back to first, the one returning to second was doubled and the game was saved. (Copyright, 1911, by "fiT. G.
