Army Officers Figured Speed
In Laying Out Baseball Diamond
NATIONAL league umpire Mel
Bason recently advanced a prop
osition that the distance be
tween the bases was the fundamental
idea that made oaseball the game It is.
But It was not by accident that the
"0-foot distance between bases was
established But blBtorj of baseball
shoots that the dimensions of tne dia
mond were not guessed or supposed
at, but were th result of exact calcu
lations by Gen. Doubleday. an army
afficer, and therefore necessarily a
mathematician, and his calculations
were the result of scientific compari
son of the speed of a batted ball,
speed of a thrown ball and speed or
However, lhat Is beside the ques
t.on. The point emphasized now. is
ihat th- one and only one thing that
lias made baseball the most wonder
ful game to play and the most ab
orbing game to witness is its glorious
uncertainty, which produces such in
finite variety that no two games are
alike No game is ever lost or won
until the last man Is out, and no re
sult can ever be predicted with abso
lute or scientific certainty
This glorious uncertainty is pro
duced solely by the prescribed round
bat, which has been in vogue ever
since the game first assumed definite
form as a distinct sport. In no other
game or sport in which a ball flguree
is a bat used, and that is why all ball
games except baseball are scientific,
often to the point of tameness; and
that is also why baseball differs from
all other ball games, both from the
standpoint of player and spectator.
The contact of the round bat with the
round ball is the one thing that makes
possible the infinite variety, the limit
less chances and the element of
"luck'" that makes a game of baseball
the most uncertain thing in the world
as to result, and therefore the delight
of the public, the despair of the critic
and the abomination of the prophet.
A Little Sport; A Little Gossip
JOt DAHUUK, mayor of Omaha, set
a precedent by spreading on the
official records of the city a procla
mation urging the people to attend
:he Creighton-St Louis football game
The proclamation says in part:
"As mayor of the city of Omaha and
l lover of clean outdoor sports, I
sarnestly request the people of Omaha

Mike Doolan to replace him, he had
netter make no plans to manage the

Jack Navin is having lots of trouble

former second baseman of the Boston
Braves, is the latest to be mentioned as
i possible choice.
Miller Huggins, the crack second
ymaii of the St. Louis Nationals, has
ill but signed up to manage the Car
dinals next year. Both St. Louis and
Cincinnati were bidding for his serv
ices, but It is expected that the Car
dinals will exceed the offer of J76W
of tne Cincinnati uuo.
Nearly every player of the Chicago
University football eleven who was in
the recent game with Wisconsin, sus
tained minor injuries as a result of
hitting the line too. hard. Light prac

the team a chance to recover.
