Term "Assist" In Baseball
Means Just What It Says
Pitchers Often Are Credited With Assists Without Putting Their Hands on
the Ball.
r-r-l HE term "assist" In
I really explains itself. It means
exactly what it says. A fielder
gets an assist every time he helps or
assists in any way In the retirement
of a batter or base runner. The most
common form of assist is that which
comes when a batter hits a ground ball
to an lnflelder, who throws It to first
or any other base, with the result that
a player on the opposing side Is put
out In cases of this kind a fielder is
credited with an assist, even If the
player ,at the other end muffs the ball,
provided the batter or base runner
would have been out if the ball had
been caught '
For Instance, a batter hits a ground
er to the shortstop, who picks it up
cleanly and makes a perfect throw
to the first baseman in plenty of
time to retire the runner, but the
first baseman drops the ball and the
batter is safe.
The shortstop . cannot be robbed of
credit for his part of the play, which
was correctly performed, on account
of the failure of another fielder to
make the play properly. Therefore, the
shortstop gets an assist, though the
batter was not put out In many cases
a fielder can get a putout and an
assist on the same play.
When a base runner Is caught and
run down between the bases and the
ball Is thrown back and forth several
times before he Is finally put out,
every man who takes part in the plav ,

EW YORK, N. T., Oct. 10. In
one particular the new rules
point to a reversion to the old
school theory of attack. The addition
of one more down makes it highly
probable that the offensive team as
soon as it gains possesion of the ball,
will attempt for two downs at least to
rush. A premium has been placed upon
continued possession of the ball and
luck, which played such a large part
in the games last year, has been ma
terially abolished.

course of the rundown.
.t-jayers in uie neiu, especially pucn- i
ers. often get assists without Duttlnsr
their hands on the ball. In the case
of a batted ball every man who
touches the ball at all in anj wav
Is given an assist if tne play finally
results In a putout Quite frequentl
a ball Is hit sharply through the box
and the pitcher jnst touches It with
tips of his fingers, while the' short
stop or second baseman gets It and
throws the batter out at first The
pitcher gets an assist just the same
as if He had handled the ball cleanly.
Even if the ball hits him on the foot
or any other part of his anatomy
without touching his hands at all, he
gets an assist provided the play ends
in a putout The toti number of as
sists made by players, especially In
fielders, is a far better test of ability
than their fielding average. When a
player has a large number of assists
it shows that he is covering a great
deal of ground and is a better man
than a player who may have fewer
errors, but Is not getting to the ball
so frequently. In looking over rec
ords of shortstops and second basemen
equal number of games played Is an
excellent criterion of the value of
the player to his team.

the development of a swift attack.
Now that pushing and pulling have

"Red" John Murray, Tight-fielder of
the New York Giants, is lending large
help to the cause of Gotham In the
world's series against the Boston Red
Sox, champions of the American league.
Murray's hitting has improved lately
and the fans have begun to look to him
regularly for long distance wallops.
This, coupled with the fact that Murray
was the one man who went through
last year's Giants-Athletics scries with
out getting a single hit; makes his
friends feel that he is going to dis

a play The speed of a play depends
upon the amount of time the runner
takes to get to hit the line. Anything
which prevents the runner from con
centrating his whole attention upon
this essential is bad. The direct pass
Is bad in this respect because, instead
of removing all responsibility from
the runner by permitting the quarter
back to feed the ball to him, the run

untrue, hesitation on ne part of the

George Green Was Genuine
and Original Young Corbett
ALTHOUGH several lighters have
fought under the monaster, the
the original and genuine "Toung
Corbett" was George Green. It was 14
years ago that Green lost the welter
weight championship to Mysterious
Billy Smith, who thus proved the fal
lacy of the allegation that "they never
come back.
The oout was staged at the ionox
club in New York and went 2C
rounds Smith getting the decision.
Young 'Corbett and Mysterious Billy
had mingled at Carson City, Nov.. in
1897, on the same day the Corbett
Fltzsimmons scrap, and Green was
the victor on that occasion. Green
had made the match with no idea
that he could beat the great Billy,
his principal purpose being only to
have his expenses paid to Carson is
iraer that he might seo the lioavj
weight battle.
He trained faithfully, and was a
mighty surprised fip-ter when the ref
eree lifted his hand as victor. ' Jt was
a sad day for Green, however, as he
was a worshipper of Jim Corbett. af

tho pompadoured one went down and

of the Australian. Green was born
