WATER-BURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, JULY 2C, 1902.
BASE BALL HEWS. : It Is Becoming So Easy to Say We Lost Yesterday." V. Springfield Improves Iler Chances On Waterbury's Errors Wretched Sup port Given Gllllgan, Who Pitched Good Ball New London Gets Two from Hartford The First One Was Forfeited for Leaving the grounds New Haven Defeats Norwich and Bridgeport Takes a .Game from Meriden. " The Springfield Union" gives th'is ac count of the game yesterday: For the first five Innings the game between Springfield and Waterbury at Hampden park yesterday was as pret ty a contest as any fan would care to see. Thomas was right on his mettle and was pitching great ball. In these five Innings he had struck out six men and had let only one walk. One good single Into right field was the sum to ' tal of Waterbury's batting." But Thomas was not the 'only one who was pitching good ball, for GI1H gan was pushing him hard for first honors. - This is only the second game Gllllgan had pitched for Waterbury, and he was anxious to make a good Bhowlng. He, too, had only , been touched up for one hit, and he was making the -batsmen fan the air to sonre extent, having four strikeouts to his credit. ' The Waterbiirys were playing like a first division team and the fans were Interested. The visitors had made the only run up to this time, and that was i made on a combination of errors by the Ponies. This one run Jbegan to look big as the game progressed. The Brassies, however, could not hold the pace and In the sixth, a dou- . ble bagger and a .close decision in fai ror of Springfield started them on the run. "Not, much damage was done, . however, until the following Inning, and then the visitors went to pieces for fair. ' Slater had all kinds of trouble at first base picking up the ball, and con tributed a couple, of errors which proved costly. Four hits were bunched right here, and they came at 6ie right time, for bunched with a stolen base, four errors, a wild pitch and a passed ball they netted five funs. ' The Brassies played like another team and not like the ' aggregation which had set so fast a pace previous ly. The team went to pieces at a single bound and lost the game. The loose playing of the visitors ap parently affected the Ponies some what for they began to get careless" and made several errors, one of which proved costly. Thomas was also touched up for several hits, and as two of them were bunched In the seventh and three in the eighth, three runs Were scored. Henry was in center field for the Ponies, and he is certainly an' Improve-1 ment over Kennedy. He has a good throwing arm and Is a fast man on bases. He hit the ball hard and gained his base twice through errors J ? although,. one . of: the balls- from his bat ! was close to being a hit. i The score; SPRINGFIELD. 1 A.B.R.IB.P.O.A. E.

Manager Harrington says he has never s released George , Henry, who Ss now playing center field for Spring field. Henry played with Waterbury for a good share of the season. He was not hitting the ball as well as he believed he could and asked Manager Harrington if he ' could try his luck elsewhere. He was told that . he might and he then went td the Nettf-i ark, teim, f coming t frotn there to Springfield. .U ManagervCorinor, on the other hand, says that Henry was giv en his release verbally .by i Manager Harrington. , Henry, turned over his uniform and left the team after be ing told that he could do so.

(The following answer Dubllshed !n the Philadelphia Public Ledger will be of interest to a number of base ball followers : "Reader-B. was f oread. and there Is no question but that he was out. It made no difference if C. did touch second base and start for third, if he reached first safely again, touching second in returning, he is safe and A: was at-liberty to return to sec ond. Both A. and C. could physically be on second at the same time, and if A. went to third C could remain on second, or, If C. went back to first. A. would be safe at second. .. It makes no difference, if one . baseVxunner does overrun another, if he gets back to the bae safely he does not force the man preceding hlnv" - ' ONEY ISLAND. : ' The traveler - from abroad Is as anxious to see Coney Island as he is to gaze upon Niagara. The westerner from the prairie plains the southerner from the cotton fields, the dowri-easter from the forests, all when they visit New York go to Coney Island first, and then ask to be shown some of the other sights. And they are right for nowhere in the wide world is there more to see in a given territory than at Coney Islandthe people's favorite festival of "fun and frolic. Without doubt one of the greatest amusement enterprises is the Gravity Steeple chase Race Course, one of the biggest winners ever known in popularity. It combines the fun of the merry-go-round, the excitement of the chutes and added to the charms of both, the zest of a genuine race appealing to the sporting blood that flows In greater or less quantities in ' the blood of every man, woman and child. A ride on the horses is a healthful stimulant that stirs the heart and clears the brain. It-.straightens out wrinkles and irons out puckers, cares and worries are forgotten,- the dashing pleasures of the moment is all In all. The above is only one of the many attractions of the Isl and that the people of Waterbury will have an opportunity of seeing if they go on the annual excursion of St Jo seph's T. A. society, Saturday, August 9. The fare being within the, reach of all; round trip. .$1.50, children' under 12 years, $1.00. This trip is by rail to Bridgeport and then a beautiful sail on the Iron steamboat Sirius to Coney Island, stopping both going and cow" ing at 31st street, New York. Tickets will be limited to the seating capacity of train, therefore it wilj be well to se cure yours early frbm any member! of the society or at the club bouse on" East JJ.8iu. street. ' WITH THE AMATEURS, f The City League Will Have No Field Day on August 2. , ; There was a meeting of the City league held last night at the rooms of the St Joseph's society and a little busi ness was transacted. - lu the first place it was decided that Inasmuch as the Washington Hills had, made ararnge ments to hold a field day on August 2 ut the Driving park, the league would give up their date and allow, the Hills i . .... io nave an open nem. There wa tonsldprnhlA fmivprsAtion regarding several postponed games and il - 1 11-. ... it was uecmeci to get tiiein out or tne way as quicKiy as possible. Some or them will be played to-morrow and the schedule is as follows: At Riverside park, Brooklyn A. O. vs St Thomas Cadets; at Watervllle, St Josephs vs ueaersons; at the Driving park, I'as times VS tilt WnnlilrxWrvn TTHTa r Saturday. Ausrusr. 10. will b the next field day of the league, and It is pro- iwseu to nave two coming good, games on that date. The managers of the J ffersons and the Pastimes have vir tually agreed to get together and play . Aa a i a . . ... on. mat postponed game on wnicn there was so much money. Efforts are being made to get the Brooklyn A. O. and the St Josephs together on the same dav. Mnnncei TVfnrlflon en -era Iib cannot get his full team out, but if he couid ne would not be afraid to faca any. team on that date. Manager Mc Kennerney wants to wager a big purse that the St Josephs can defeat the Brooklyns on that day, and there the matter rests. , There was some talk of having the Saturday games be exhibition ones, but It was the general onlnion that the. best plan would be to have them count in the standing , . . . . - The buttons am eelllnc rnnlrllv nrt those who have not purchased them - A ... . - van una tnem witn any of the man agers. The people who. witness the Sunday games should take this method of helping out the boys In the City league. Each team goes to considera ble expense and this is the means they have of paying up. The buttons only cost 25 cents and you will never miss one quarter, while many of them- will be a wonderful Jielp to the league. At a meeting of the Clover base ball club last night T. Kenney was signed for left field and Ti Hayes for right field.. They will succeed Nolan. y and Lahey who have been released. ; 11 The schedule of games In the Great er Waterbury base ball league for to morrow will be a follows: Sunshine A.

Jeffries Landed Two Blows Which Counted the Coinishman Out In the Ehjhth Round Fitzslmmons Up to That Tim Chopped Jeffries Face to Pieces It looked Like a Victory for the ) Former Champion When His Finish Came So Suddenly-Biggest Crowd that Ever Attended a Boxing Exhibition In. the West ' San Francisco, July 20. Jeffries won the fight with Fitzslmmons last night in the eighth round. The battle for the heavyweight chain plonship of the world last night be tween James J. Jeffries of Los Angeles, the champion, and Robert Fitzslmmons of New. York,1 ex-champion, excited more Interest in San ' Francisco and throughout the country than any chain plonship event since Porbett met Sulli van at New Orleans, and It drew the biggest crowd ever seen at a fight in San Francisco. . . The glamour of romance and senti ment was all about the struggle, for it was not the attempt of a young and untried man to wrest the championship belt from the veteran of the ring, but the bold effort of a man far along In years to regain from a younger, strong er and bigger antagonist the laurels that he lost three years ago. Despite the fact that Jeffries is a Callfornian arm is an unbeaten man, FItz has been more popular there since the fight arti cles were , signed. There is something about his game struggle to- recover the title of champion that has appealed to Calif omJans, , and they showed their liking and sympathy for him by the great ovation that tuey gave him, last Sunday when he , came , back from Skaggs Springs. ' v , ; : ;, , , ' Much of the money put up on lntz has also been placed out of sentiment, the same feeling that prompted many to wager on Jack Dempsey when he met .FItz at New Orleans. But among the hard-headed sports, who do not be lieve in sentiment and who judge a man strictly on form and previous per formances, very little money was placed on Fltz except on the gamble that he would last ten rounds. Many gports were rendered wary by their experience .with ' Peter Jackson several years ago. Jackson In his day was the quickest big man In the ring, with the exception of Corbett. When he came back there after his London successes he was matched against Jef fries, who was then' a hard-hitting novice, with Sharkey as his only victim n the first class.1 Jackson had dissi pated badly in London and showed the results, but in two weeks his appear ance changed, and those who saw him train declared' that he had regained all his old form. Jeffries' was the favor ite, but a large amount' of money; was put on Jackson to stay ten rounds, but he went all to pieces In1 the5 third and was knocked out before the round was half finished. It Is thig lesson . that made the San Francisco sports very shy of risking their 'coin on FItz be cause he looked well and made a fine showing in his training,, f The scene of thift championship fight was unique. Every other big ring bat tle in the last ten years has been held in the Mechanics' pavilion, a great barn of a building, but ' well adapted for fights, as there Is, a big gallery. The. Twentieth: Century 'Athletic club secured the pavilion f orslx months and ; counted on getting this fight, but they were unsuccessful In their bid. Then they turned aud demanded from the ; San Francisco Athletic club, the sue- j cessful bidders, a sum as rental for one night which would have paid their lease for half a year. The San Fran Cisco managers refused, and built an open-air pavilion at Valencia . and Fourteenth streets, 174 by 174 feet, then surrounded it with a twenty-foot fence. With the ring in the center and the four corners cut off, they had an octagonal lnclosure with "no seat more than 135 feet from the ring. All around the fence was built a tier of seats fourteen feet high,1 as in a circus, and these seats, the best In the house, were sold at $5 each. Then on the ground the other seats were laid out with two rows of boxes immediately around the ring. The box seats were $20 each and the other seats $10 and $15. Over the ring and extending eighty feet, on each of the four sides was stretched a great canvas tent. Massed about . the ring and hung on tile poles that support the tent were sixty, powerful electric lights that made the place as light as noon day. As no picture privilege was given, the fierce light from this apparatus, that proved so great a nuisance to those near the ring at the Jeffries Ruhlln fight, was not in evidence, r Fitz arrived at 8:20 o'clock with his seconds. Hank Griffin, Clark Ball. W. F. Heberly and Frank Soule. Jeffries arrived ten minutes later with his sec onds. Billy Delaney, Jack Jeffries and Joe Kennedy. ; Ned Shay, official' announcer, gave notice that tickets would be sold for a raffle for Jack Dempsey's champion ship belt, the proceeds to be devoted to the education of Dempsey's children. The preliminary was a twenty-round go between Dave Barry and Harry Foley, two local welterweights. ; Foley won In the tenth round by a knockout. After the preliminary bout, at 9:45 o'clock,' Anouncer Shay called for Alec Greggains, the matchmaker of the club, and Edward Iloman, the elub' president. ; The pair, in company with Ed Harrington, went to the dressing room of the pugilists and held a con ference.! ' Among the spectators were a large number of women, who1 manifested in tense Interest in the proceedings, which were enlivened by a battle royal be tween four darkies. . At 10 o'clock there were no signs of the principals for the main event. It was rumored that the flsrhters were holding out on the referee's nrlce for his services. Graney demanded $500. but to this amount the men were un able to agree. " " Fitzslmmons entered the ring at 8 minutes past 10 o'clock. He was greeted with tremendous cheerlne. Jeffries entered the ring a minute later chid in lonsr overcoat and sweater, and wearing a Panama hat. First .found Jeffries .assumed Ms semi-crouch., position. Both then fid dled for an opening., Jeff led with the left, but FItz pranced away nimbly." Fitz then put thQ left to Jeffrles'a eye. and followed It up with a straight Jab, Jeff then made two ineffective at tempts to reach the Cornlshman with his left, but FItz ducked deftly.

But Fitz bored in and drew first blood with a straight jab on the nose. This round was slightly in favor of Lanky Bob. Second round The crowd seemed to be with Fitzslmmons. Jeffries forced the fighting.. 116 landed a light left on Fltz's body and followed with another on the shoulder. Fitz's landed on Jef frles's jaw and cleverly ducked the counter.
