WATERBURY EVENING. DEMOCRAT. THURSDAY. JULY 23, 1903.
3 THE DIAMOND. Secretary O'Roflrke's View of 7 the Vickers Case Eta -Want the Holyoke CM) to Be the Only One Punished Games . Inter fered. With By Rain Yesterday Manager Reilly Enters a Protest Meriden, July 23. While the action of the board of directors of the Con necticut baseball league was decisive In regard to the games Ira which Vick rs, a farmed pitcher, played for Hol- ? ' yoke being thrown out it is likely that the vote will 'be modified at the next meeting and the Holyoke team made the only sufferer. AS it is now,' the (New Haven team, which 'beat Vickers three games, Is an Innocent victim, ow ing to the directors' drastic vote, and loses the games the teams won. Mow ever, ' this only temporary action and will be remedied at once. -James H. O'Rourke, In a letter to the ' ' Meriden Journal, explains the vote of the meeting and gives his opinion, thus setting at rest all rumors as to the vote. Mr O'Rourke'a letter Is as follows: "According to the motion, which pre vailed -by a majority vote, all . games lit which Vickers took part are thrown out. This, includes all games, both won and lost, where Vickers appeared In the game. The facial scorer has teen notified by one to correct the Standing of all clubs on this basis. "I am Qieartlly in favor of a modifi cation of the above vote because I be lieve It to be wholly Inequitable in so far as it is a punishment upon the New ' Haven baseball club, which so splen didly won three games from Holyoke with Vickers .pitching. r r "The " more equitable proposition is to , have all the Karnes played , in Jjy Vickers forfeited to the1 non-offending club. The only club then punished would be the guilty one. to wit Hol yoke. It is my opinion this will be the .ultimate decision of the board of idirectors. But by the record as it now stands 'all the Vickers games are, thrown out" It is to be hoped that the meeting will be called soon and the correction Jnade. as the defiant stand of O'Neill end his team Is not conducive to good order in the league. i This letter from 'Secretary O'Rourke ffectuallysets at rest all the rumors iftbout the vote of the directors at the New Haven meeting. The stories printed by the 'baseball men of the New Haven Register. Holyoke Tran script and other unreliable writers are thus denied. The games are thrown out and will .stay thrown out The efforts of Oanavan O'Neill and the Register can hardly have them re-ftwarded. . '-Springfield, July 23. Hartford and Springfield played a five-inning game , In the rain yesterday afternoon. It " was raining hard in the second inning and the captains of the two teams agreed that the, game should be'called at the end of the fifth inning, the team ahead at that time winning the game. Hartford was ahead in the fifth but the Sprlngflelds batted in two runs anj won the game. Then, . when the gaem was called. Manager Reilly pro , tested, claiming that it was not raining .harder than during the previous . in- fttags, . andAe-denxanded that the game go on. The game was called, as agreed, however.

Norwich defeated H61yoke yesterday at Norwich, out pitching, outplaying and outbattlng them. McLean's pitching and bat ting and Connelly's throwing were the features. Every Holyoke man who Hartford is still trying out new play ers. Two more were tried Monday by Tom Reilly and, as usual; they didn't make good. Pat Carney has mada onlv two mis. plays In 86 chances in the Boston Na tionals' outfield and is team leader in fielding. Manager O'Rourke has six men on the suspended list. These' are: Phil Corcoran, "Red" Waller Cusick, Dougherty -and Regan. . Patrbna of. a same are entitle . tA protection "from the noisy man who oc casionally gets into the grand stand and mars the enjoyment of everybody within hearing., ; Pappalau is . turned down. Neither Tom Reilly or Roger Connor would buy the player from Worcester. Man ager Hurley of the outcasts tried to sell him but failed. There is one thing to be thankful for this' year. The robbed-by-the-umpire cry has about died out. The clanks refuse to take any more stock in it-New-York Sun. , . Pop Foster, the utility player, who was formerly with Worcester, is now to be tried for slabbing duty by tho Bridgeport team. Pop has been doing well as shortstop. "William Madden" is tne name of n new outfielder from Worcester that Tonv Reilly has added to the Hartford team., "jviaaaen" looks a whole lot like Victor Bourden who was with the Worcester team. : Besides being a first-rater in all points of the game there is a frtnzerr way about Hugh Jennings that Is con tagious, and has much to do with win. ning out in a close contest. -Providence Journal. , Fred Clay, who played in the' Phila delphia National outfield last year, has reported for work at Meriden. He is a six-footer. He slammed out three hits, on of them a triple in his first game Monday. . Terry . Rogers, Norwich's second baseman, who was overcome by the heat, about two weeks ago, has been removed to Backus hospital. He was; apparently recovering, but suffered a relapse. ' !. ' i Willis, supposed to be one of the best pitchers in the country, has woni only four of fifteen games for the Bos ton Nationals, while John Malakey, a vet, well known to the Eastern league followers, is the winning twirl er with eight wins in' fourteen game's. The New Haven Leader says that Phil Corcoran is still at New Haven, and is occupying his time driving a bargain with an independent team. 1 is said that he" will land something good in a few days at terms made to suit himself. v "I am more than pleased with the work of the team on tills trip," says Ed Hanlon, "and I am sure the cranks in Brooklyn have nothing much to kick about. I have tried hard to bolster up the pitching department, and have been perfectly willing to pay a good price to secure a first-class twirler, but up, to date I nave been unable to do so." .Worcester is knocking at the door of the Connecticut league As a sporting 'city, the Heart of the Commonwealth is good, but the ball teams for somo years past haye failed to arouse the Interest of the people. With the shortened circuit of the Connecticut league, instead of the lengthy one of the Eastern league, the game might pay. t Corcoran of Cincinnati Is the premier shortstop of the National league, with an average of .816. Dahlen of Brook lyn is second and Dunn of New York folldws. Six shortstops In the league have over .900 and six are below that mark. Aubrey of Boston is at the bot tom with .842.' Wagner is . the best base running shortstop, having pur loined 21 bases. Moran of Washington leads the shortstops of the American league in fielding with ah average of .&41. El berfield of Detroit and New York is second with .934.' Wallace of St Louis and Monte Cross are tied for third place. Parent ; is fifth in -the list. Cross has done the best base running of any of the shortstops and Parent is second In that respect. Waddell is not a rowdy, despite his "peculiar action." The ordinary pro cedure in such cases is for the offended player to approach the stand and pour out a flood of profanity sufficient to sicken all within hearing. That is not Rube' way. With all his queer ae tiongrhe possesses a , gentlemanly in stinct and a sense of right and' wrong. To his notion, the talk and abuse from the stand disturbed not only .himself, but outraged the comfort and decency of the. better grade of base ball patrons of both sexes who were sitting near. Philadelphia North American. " ' ' ; 1 ; ART OF BATTING. Charlie Hickman Talks About When i- r--.-..::1 to Hit. .: Charles Hickman, the Cleveland first baseman, la one of the hardest, freest hitters in base ball. Speaking of the art of batting, . "Hick" said: , "Curve balls are about the same as fast, straight ones fd hit if they come over the plate. I'd just as soon hit at curves as the. straight ones, and a number of fellows feel the same way. I. think the hardest ball to hit .Is the one that comes low down on the out side' corner of the plate, but the high, fast inside ball brings Its) troubles for the batters. ' A batsman is Sometimes fooled, not by the pitcher, but by him self. This happens .when, the batter makes up his mind to hit at. the next ball pitched. That takes place once in a while with the best of them., "The batter gets the idea of hitting at the next one in his head and can't get it out of his head. The result Is he lets go at the next hall, whether it suits him or not, and a likely as not strikes out or falls to hit safe.- Which showg that he has no business figuring on hitting a ball until he sees what kind of a one is coming. They say that when the ball, Is three and two on a pitcher, the advantage is with the batter, "because the pitcher has to put the next one over, but for me I'd rather have the call two. and . two. Pitchers are getting to h very tricky. They are not putting thim squarely over these days without trying to fool you by tak ing the corners, and I notice that many a. pitcher will try to curve tne nan over the plate even with three balls against him. ' " ..- -' ' "Two ajfid. two suits me better. I believe the pereentage or likelihood for making a- hit is greater when- there are. men on bases than when there are n6f say with two. on .bases nd a; hit needed. iThe pitcher Is more careful and the other fielders more careful, but, a situation , of that sorttnerves up A batsman. , There is more at stake than when nobody is on base, and, feeling the responsibility , the batter's confi dence grows accordingly." ' V .!' CASE OF GEORGE DAVIS. New York, July 23. Now that the da'mage has been done, those who tre responsible for it have come to the conclusion that after all George Davis is not-quite the valuable man for the team that they had hoped. " They also are free to confess that in the long run Babb ia the. better man for the club. Tls a great pity that they did not arr rive at that conclusion before they put the fat In the fire. Had they done so there would not have been all the ugly rumors afloat that there-have been dur ing the past few days. But it Is too late now, and theywlll have to make the best of . their mistake. But It showed one thing very-plainly, and that was that the American league was not to ber,bluffed. They are a fighting lot, and came right back, with the re sult that up to date they have had by far the better of all the arguments. But they do not , seem disposed to press the advantage,', being willing to play fair and ask for no more than their rights. These they will have, perforce, if necessary. It is a good thing for base ball that they are so well Inclined, for otherwise the war would have been a long and bitter one. . f BRIGHTON TURF GOSSIP. Aftermath of Waterboy-McChesney Fiasco--Jockey, 'Powers in Trouble. New1 York, July 23. -Turfmen were still discussing, the Waterboy-McChesney fizzle yesterday. All sotts of opin ions were advanced as to the probabil ity of a meeting between these crack horses, the prevailing idea being that they will eventually be brought to gether n a three-cornered, affair with Hermis. ' , "The, meat of the thing was Just this," said a well-known sceptic: "Smathers thought he had a, crack and came here to clean up with McChesh heyi ' The journey told on the horse, and when Hlldreth had seen Waterboy work at Sheepshead Bay on Sunday it was concluded that McChesney was up against it.". Owner Smathers declared yesterday that" when McChesney is himself he will match him against Waterboy or any other horSe in the world. He said he regretted the postponement, but that It was unavoidable. Hildreth has gone to , Chicago, and McChesney will be shipped to Saratoga to-4ay. Steeplechase Jockey T. Powers had his badge taken up at Brighton yester day. It was learned that several years ago he was ruled off the Bellaire track at Montreal and had never been reinstated;" The owner of the horse who was badly ridden by Powers came to the surface yesterday with the in formation which resulted in. a renewal of the Jockey's banishment. THE PUGILISTS. Jimmy Brigrgs Went the Limit With Young Corbett V The Champion Couldn't Land the Knockout Wallop The Break Clean Agreement Helped Brlggs Andy Craig, Gardner's Manager, Is In New York The Corbett-Jeffrles Bout Dis cussed By the Sports. Boston, July 23. Young Corbett re ceived the decision over Jimmy Briggs at'the end of their' ten-round bout at.the Tammany A. C. -last"eyening.v . With the exception of two roimdslthe cham pion had the better of the encounter, Brlgga stalling all the rest of the time in order to stay the limit. Jack Smith" was referee, and his decision was a popular one. Both men were in good condition. Briggs . forced matters , f. in the opening round and had all the bet ter of it. He landed a hard right-hand punch on Corbett's Jaw toward the end of the round, and nearly sent " him through the ropes. The Chelsea lad began the second round by fighting ag gressively, but he soon had to assume the defensive and the latter half of the round was In favor of Corbett. The latter also had the better of it in the third, fourth and fifth rounds, but in the sixth Briggs side-stepped and land ed a hard left hook on Corbett's jaw as the latter came in. Corbett c swung right and left wildly and nearly tum bled out of; the riag. "He was dazed and Briggs landed two hard body blows before the gong sounded. In the sev enth, eighth and ninth rounds Corbett had a- slight advantage, but In. the tenth Briggs ran around the ring and hung on all the time. The bout was not as fast as the previous one be tween.the pair. 'From some of ' the training camps comes the wail that Jeffries has trou ble to take off weight. Why he wants to take off weight the , wail' does not say. In fact.' most of the yawps about Jeffries's lack'Of condition may be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, in Tact, several grains. Andy Craig, backer and manager of George Gardner, arrived in New York yesterday from Chicago for the purpose of bringing about a match between Gardner and Bob Fitzsimmons. It was Craig's intention to post a forfeit of $2,500 to bind the match, but he concluded to defer this until to-day. Immediately after his arrival-, Craig looked up Jack Herman of the Interna tional A. C. of Fort Erie. Craig found Herman. Herman said his offer of a purse of $15,000 for the combat atiH holds good, and Craig promptly accept ed. Gardner did not' reach New York as expected, but Craig thinks he will get there by to-morrow night at the latest. Craig is very confident that Gardner can defeat Fitzsimmons. ' As soon as the men are matched," he said. "I will be ready to wagerany part Of $10,000 on his chances. Gardner" 1s a better man than the . general public gives him credit for." , a i ' Magistrate Breen inithe Tombs po lice court issued a summons yesterday for Norman Selby, Kid McCoy. Louis E. Thorman, through 'his lawyers, Sul livan, Goldsmith & Engel of 346 Broad way, got the summons. In court Law yer Goldsmith refused to discuss the case on the ground that McCoy might leave town if he knew that a summons was out for him. Later in the day; however, he aia that on, July 7 his Client and McCoy had been chatting to gether when Thormafl pulled out five railroad Jbohds of a thousand dollars each and said he'd like to raise some money on them. "McCoy volunteered to engineer the deal 'and took v the bonds," Mr Goldsmith went on, "but after, that my client never saw him again, although he went up to. his Broadway place at least twenty times. Recently he learned that McCoy had put up the bonds with an automobile company, as security for a $3,000 ma chine, f We only got a summons to-day. If we can't serve it to-night, we'll get a warrant to-morrow. We heard that the" Kid is going to 'take a little Eu ropean trip. In that case we will apply for extradition papers." Mr Goldsmith refused the address of his client or the name of the automobile firm that had the bonds. At the Broadway- saloon wfcch bears McCoy's name no one would admit knowing where ' McCoy was. - ' Tommy Sullivan of Brooklyn, who is now at St Louis, where he will meet Young Corbett on the 80th of this month.' in a talk on the types of sue cessful fighters, recently said: "There can be no set rule covering the build of a champion pugilist. Just take the champions in the heavyweight class lately, John L. Sullivan was splendidly developed, but was of the heavy, solid ly built type. Corbett wa3 light in comparison, and his victory seemed to put the pry, agile fellow on top., Then awkward-looking FIta bobbed up, only to go down before Jeffries, who bulkier looking than any man we have yet had as champion. - In the feather weight class Dixon was of the light, sllmly built type a beautiful-appearing man in the ring. He was put away by McGoverU, who Is a sheer mass of muscle. Then Young Corbet, another chunky and nuggety fighter puts Terry down. v We can't say that thd lanky man is' out of it. when' it comes to a fight with a compactly arranged fight er, because we have Fitz and George Gardner with us." Gardner is one of the tallest men in the ring and seems thin in proportion. We can't-sny that the bulky. man Is no good, for Jeffries Is champion. . As for the chunky men. Young Corbett represents them well enough. Boxers who, develop- any one quality to an extreme degree " often make their way to the top on this qual ity alone. Attell has .done so by his epeed, both on his feet and .at boxing, but his constant use of the footwork has made him seem very heavy In the lower story. Fitzsimmons ' was so heavy around the shoulders that he seemed overbalanced on his lanky legs, yet he owed his most important vic tories to the tremendous hitting power in those shoulders. I don't believe any one type can be laid down as the ideal man for the ring,,,.. Each build has its champions and each style of man has his own methods. The successful men of to-day may be the losers to-morrow and an entirely new type may be set UP". rmm-mJLmJ, ON THE MAT Dwyer and Jack Munroe to Meet at Glens Falls To-Night. While waiting for someone to take him on in the ring, Jack Munroe, the pugilist is going to try his skill on the mat. The big miner has arranged a match with M.

Clay ton's manager, a wealthy English book maker, was so impressed with Parker's style that he asked the latter if It was true that he (Parker) had thrown Er n$st Roeber.

Confusion of Identity in Road Race and a Disqualification. A protest that was filed by E. O. Schwab, who finished second in the twehty-flve-mile road race ou Staten Island on July 4, resulted in in investi gation that brought ibut a curious tan gle of identities. Schwab protested on the ground that the winner, who was entered as Mike Sloan of Bayonne, was not Sloane, but E. L. Meade of Bay onne. Meade is a professional rider who was suspended for one year by the N. C. A., for entering as an amateur and riding in the Irvington-Milburn' race on May 30. : The Century Road Club association, which co-operated with the Richmond County Racing association in the con duct of the race of July 4 undertook an investigation. Sloane was written to to come forward and identify him self. He made promises to nppear, but never did so, and finally Referee D. M. Adee allowed the protest of Schwab by default oh the part of Sloane to prove his identity.. This gives Schwab first prize and the other prize winners each move up one place. According to President VanDyke of the C. R. C. v A. the investigation brought out the fact that there really is a Mike Sloane, as well as an E. L. Meade at Bayonne. A man - saying that he was Sloane went to the cus todian of the prizes and claimed the winner's portion.
