The Greatest Play
As Told To
Hugh S. Fullerton
Ever Saw
Outfielder Washington Americans, Former Second Baseman Detroit, Considered
One of the Smartest Men in Baseball.
4The greatest play I ever saw was
. dwible play tbat Charlie O'Leary,
Bossman and I made. I don't mind
telling it or claiming that it was the
greatest, because my part of the play
was only to start it, so I am not-making
myself oat to be he hero of it.
and retired the runner there, hut thatt
would liave given them the score and.
the game; I hadn't a chance to throw
to the plate and all I could do was to.
try for the double play, I scooped
the ball and while running snapped;
it back to second base, or rather,
toward second. CLeary was on tho
bag and the ball was at least five
feet wide. To leave the base meant
to lose the play. He fell toward the
ball, keeping one foot on the bag, and
stretching, he caught it, forcing the
runner there. "When I looked he was
polling over, -half rising, and from
that pcsition he whipped the ball
toward first base. He was almost ly
ing down when he made the throw
and tfco bn1! went wide to first, so
wide that I didn't think Rossman had
a chance to get it. Ross kept up
his end by diving outward with his
foot on the sack, and spearing the
ball with his mitt while he lay
stretched out on the ground.
I dcn't think I ever saw a play af
fect a crowd as that one did. The
people had expected the Athletics to
win out and were yelping as loudly
as they could. They yelled more
when the ball was hit. But as Ross-
man speared that ball the crowd was
as quiet as a tomb. The people just
sat and looked at each other for a
minute and then they broke loose
and yelled for five minutes. They
still were yelling when we came to
bat in the nest inning, and every time
either CLeary or Rossman turned
around they cheered, and they cheered
us all even "the Dutchman when
darkness finally ended the game.

Gossip of Games Here and

A Pittsburg paper,, in defence of
Clarke's accusation that Eason played
coward in the St. Louis game, says a
reporter informed Eason that the Cards
must have the tiest of it or else he, the
. reporter would do his umps bodily
harm, and that as a consequence Eason
"was scared suff. Great mackerel! to
think of a puny pencil pusher going
after an athlete like Eason. It is to

The play was made either in thej
fourteenth or the fifteenth inning of;
the game between Detroit and Phila-j
delphia on September SO, 1907, which
finally ended in a seventeen inning
tie by a score of 9 to 9.
That was a wonderful game in
many respects. Both teams were hit
ting hardand scoring often, but as:
often as we scored they scored the'
same number of runs. Half a dozen,
times we thought we had the game
In hand, and each time they tied it
up and we had to fight to keep them4
from winning out.
In the inning that the play was
made it looked as if the Athletics
had grabbed the game at last. They
had men on first and 4hird and one
out. I don't Tecall who was at bat,
but I think it was Harry Davis. "We:
were, of course, playing the middle'
distance, to try either for a double;
play, or for the man 'at the bat, thet
first and third basemen playing in;
and the second baseman and the;
shortstop playing middling deep Just;
Inside the line. The hall was hit be
tween me and Rossman, hit so hard
that I couldn't get squarely In front
of it; it went entirely past me so
that I had turned and was moving"

baseball. Dissatisfaction with the man
agement is assigned as the' reason.
Poor Detroit. It .is certainly doomed
to lo&e its franchise on account of non
ittendance. The vendor ot pop corn has
closed his stand and moved -to Chicago,
saying business was too poor; Seems
like Detroit will have- to retire from
major league ball. ,
A peculiar play came up in the 10th j
inning, m the Dallas-Galveston game !
last Sunday. In this inning Dallas got '
three clean hits and yet not a man j
j ing or poor base running.
Shortstop Bush, of Detroit, is said to
be the only major league player, who
takes everj- precaution against spiking
an opponent. In speaking of the matter
Bush said: "I am losing bases right
along, yet I haven't the heart to. spike,
and maybe maim a player for life. If I
went spike first Into a base they might
respect my v base running more, but I'll
take the chances."
The race in the Texas league is tho J

at present There are only 28 points dif
ference between the leader and the sev
nth team, sixth or fifth team, these
three being tied for fifth place.

his record will be in Fort Worth.
In the Sunday afternoon game, catch
er ilanquera lost his temper and rolled
the ball across the diamond slowly with
a man on base. This is poor baseball,
because had the runner been on the
lookout, he could have taken an addi
tional base.
