WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. FRIDAY, MAY 13. 1904.
9 THE SP0R THE DIAMOND. GREAT CONTEST IN ALL LEAGUES HolyoKe Trims the Hew Havens- Springfield Down ed by Bridgeport Meri den and Worcester Won. Holyoke, May 13. Evangelist Clan cy 'had the. revival service in charge yesterday, and the Fitzpatrick flock hauled anxious watchers of the chauips back to happiness. Score, 6 to 2. For the second time this week New Haven was -used as the chief figure in hope, raising. .After watching the de lightful dabbles Into the section of base, ball that is beyond the reach of commonplace winning teams, it would not bo hard for anyone with good health and an unbleary eye to see an otbier pennant flopping .over Massachu setts soil. Worcester is in this state, too, we believe, but that doesn't mean ahythinsr . Baseballlcally, Holj-oke imakes the blackest and biggest spat- er on the map, and if Mr Fitzpatrick can dish out .some base ball like that hown yesterday, It will take something better than bluster and raw ability to stop the champa. ( A quiet survey of the things amassed in yesterday's affair would serve to put the evidence that counts into the possession of the narrowest , student. Ilolyoke injected fire sacrifice hits and as many stolen bases into the army of efforts mustered in behalf of victory; Top-story base ball is what helps any team along the route to happiness, and the Holyoke men shipped via the Joy line, under Captain Fitzpatrick, for the j Phil Corcoran, who used to tm in Springfield a decade ago, at a time when even worse spars than have got the Pony brand upon them now, were tpastured there, was kept in the slab bing storehouse for yesterday's' game. Corcoran, who has been a Bridgeport vonder-worker, , was ready to help lalong his. new associates, but after Hol yoke has slowed its scientific side, Cor coran was willing to put the champs down as most deserving reachers for another banner.

Is there ever a time when a batter steps to the plate and attempts to bunt that some one in the crowd does not Indulge in advice? And yet sacrifice hitting is one of the prettiest and most scientific fea tures of the national game. Yesterday Bridgeport played a. distinctly bunt ing game and defeated. Springfield "in 10 innings by the score of 6 to 5. In the ninth came enthusiasm in bunches, for Hannifin hit for a triple, Tansey was hit by ia pitched ball and Flanagan leaned up against the ball for a double. Hemming was not equal, to bringing home Flanagan with the winning run and so the se&re was; tied. . Tansey's run in this Inning wag made when Gene took two bases on Joe Connor's out. Yale tried to cut Gene off at third and threw high and Gene scooted home. In the 10th Colllgnon singled and was sacrificed to second. He went to third on Clark's out Yale then hit to Ed Connor. Ed started, f orward to try for the ball in the air, but hiCd to take it on the bound. The bound was close and sharp, and Ed fumbled, al lowing Colli gnon to cross the plate. In the last of this inning Ed Con nors caught the ball on his crazy-bone and walked to first. lie was sacrificed to second, and went to third on an out, ' but Hannlfan could not bring him home, and the game was lost The core:, , , . i . . - Bridgeport.

At Hartford. "Hartford, May 13. McLean, who was troublesome last season when he was with Norwich, was in the box for Worcester and he did not have much trouble fooling the Hartford batsmen. He had a good deal of speed and fanned seven. Parkins was hit hard only in the eighth inning" and his sup port was discouraging. Cross made the most sensational stop of the day and Osteon made some clever plays on the Worcester side. x There was a mixup in . the seventh inning that delayed the game a few minutes. Rogers started off by get ting first on ' an error by Cross, Par kins caught him napping and he was put out. Aecorsini hit to Nagel and the latter threw poorly to first. In trying to reach the ball Rochford Veer ed to the north and' the base runner went into him full tilt When thadUBt had settled Aecorsini was rolling over on the bag and Rochford was on his knees. The Worcester, catcher quick ly recovered and was cheered for his pluck in continuing: Rochford was stunned momentarily .The score: . R.H.E.

Grange not only" pitched a brilliant game, but made two of the three hits for Trinity. In the first Inning a scratch hit, a single afid a home run scored tbrfc runs for Yale, In the fourth the first Trinity man tip was bit, the second bunted and reached first, the third man was hit by a pitched ball, and the bases were full. Townsend was up to the occasion and scored the first two men by a pretty single and both he and Morgan scored on Bowman's wild throw to first. Yale had a rally in the fourth and sent four men across the rubber. Yale scored three more run during the game. The playing of O'Brien at short was a feature. The score: - R.H.E.

From Pittsburg comes the story that the owner of the Pittsburg club has $25,000 to pay for a pair- of good ones. But it is stated that tho little president is willing to give $25,000. for Christy Matthewson alone, New York's great twirler. . Bar ney probably knew that even that sum could' not tempt McGraw to part with the big fellow, and just made the offer to show , sincerity in trying to put the Pirates on a championship basis. Dreyfuss, though, is apparently wor ried about the result of the National league Tace. He wants some pitchers, and wants them badly, and he names those he would like to get. They are Frank Halm of Cincinnati, Bernhard of Cleveland Mullin' of Detroit, Young of Boston, McGinnity of New York, or Cheh of St Paul. For nnv turn of thf pair Barney says he will split the $25,. 000 be would give for Matthewson. Joe Corbett has been unlucky in his pitching. ; Iu his last two games his team bas been beaten, although fewer hits were made off him than off the opposing pitcher. Mathewson has had varying success against Sj; Louis. The year he made his reputation in the National league St Louis was the team that stopped his string of victories. Once he shut St Louis out without a hit, and Wed nesday he was knocked out of the box. DREYFUSS SCOFFS AT IT. "Talk about Pittsburg having a poor team this year," said Duffy; "It is the same champion team this year that it was last. I think it can beat almost, any. team in the country, and I many games this year. It is my (Opin ion that It is playing possum and will win its fourth pennant this year." The opinion. Is not given mucn credence, and Barney Dreyfuss says that it was so absurd that it was not worth a re ply. Tliose who know a thing or two about. baseball say that there is not only no logical motive for such' an ac tion, but that It 'Would', be" impossible of execution on account of the larae number: of players that would, have to, ' be taken into the deal.' " : , OWENS SAYS NO.".' vS. ' lied Owens ds still" among the miss ing (ard is likely to be for some timei Munager O'Neill received , .two tele grams from him yesterday in which. OAvens ' said he Would not report but would play independent ball. Last night a telegram came from R. J. Gilks, manager of the Shreveport team, which read: "Have notified Ow ens to report to you. He says will rlay Independent ball first." SELECT YOUR GIGS. This is Friday, the 13lh! Oh! would you look at the scores: Giants 7, the other fellers ........ .13 New York 0, the other fellers ...... 7 Brooklyn 0, the other fellers . ....10 '.,..."'.."''.: '.,''..' ;' y: ' 2)26 " "'. - 13 Manager Hanlon and Virgil Garvin have had a quarrel, and as a result the tall pitcher has been sent home. McGinnity, Kellum, Harper, Wicker, Corrldon, Dunleavy and Thatcher are the National league : pitchers who have not lost a game. Since Mr Taylor's advent. Dough erty, Freeman, Lacha nee and Dlneen have signed 1904 contracts. They re fused to sign with Mr Killilea. Ames, the New York National pitch er, who has had a lame arm. Is want ed by McGraw, and Gus Guerrero, the rubber, has come home from St Louis to get Ames into shape as quickly as posltle. A Brooklyn enthusiast has suggest ed to. President Pulliam that the name of each plaster be strapped , on his back. About ' as feasible as Stanley Roblson's notion that pitchers be an nounced the night before they work. While Washington Is a weak organ ization, it, must not be forgotten that the absence of Pitcher Orth has han dicapped the club seriously. It now looks as if Orth would b,e unable to play for sdme time. s . Grady, once a New Yorker, has a batting average of .438 for the St Louis Cardinals; Zearfoss, once a New Yorker, an average of .500, for the same team, and Howell, once a New Yorker, an average of. .400 with the St Louis Browns. Griffith will have to sign a utility man for each position at the. rate his hospital list is v growing. However, Conroy was in uniform yesterday and may be able to resume play shortly. Thoney is active at third, but he. is not a. Conroy. Day's visit to Manchester Saturday cost him $30. He owed that amount to the Manchester association when he jumped the team three years ago, and John Smith told him he would have to settle or have trouble. So Doe fixed the thing up on account. Mirror. In the game at Springfield" Wednes day Umpire Kennedy had Hayward, the New Haven player, removed from the game because he refused to re move a glove from his hip pocket. In yesterday's game in Hartford several of the athletes carried gloves on their hips, but Kennedy did not take any notice of them. The best race for a starter in any of the leagues 4a in the Southern, where only 183 points divide the eight clube. There Are some . t orrner , Con necticut league, players down that Way. Birmingham has Duffy, who was with New Haven, and Matthews, who Was with Watertrury, while Lus key, also with sWaterbury, is playing on the Atlanta, team. There Is a difference between ; the situation In Hartford and in Spring field: While it it known and admitted here that the Hartford team is a poor one, the Springfield people cherish the" delusion that they have a good one. It was a very short time ago that Don ovan was heralded as the best short stop in the league; now he in relegated to . the rear. There was also a good deal of talk about what the team was going to do When Ed Connors joined the aggregation. He joined yesterday and his error lost the game. -Hartford Courant . The New York A mericans partook of their first whitewash yesterday, and Cleveland was the source of it; but there was a tougher happening than that in store for Manager Grif fith.: In the eighth inning Lajoie, who had a collision ; with Keeler the day before , spiked Elberfield .while sliding into second .base. The little toe of Elberfield's right foot was split open. Misfortunes never come singly. Conroy. Uhglaub, Wolfe and Elberfield have ajl ben hurt on the field lately. The local Americans have had more hard luck than any other team' this season, and have ' done exceedingly well to make such a good showirf? un der the circumstances. . with the 'Amateurs City League Held an Important Meet ing Last Night Next Gams. The City Amateur league held a meeting last night and transacted con siderable business. There ywere ru mors of protests being entered . be cause of the St Joseph and Washing ton hill game last Sunday, when the umpire stopped the game at five min-' utes to four. The . rules call for the teams, to play until 4 o'clock sharp and then if the teams are iri the middle of an Inning nd . there is a chance for the lower team to get even or win out the game must he continued until that inning is over. It being the first game the umpire who was new to the rules, decided that It was impossible to play out a full inning before 4 o'clock and therefore called the game. ' There were no protests entered, however, i'.i Bernard F. Burke resigned as um pire of the league and William T. Keaveney, the old second ba seman of the Waterbury state league team was appointed and he will umpire the two. ball games pn the lower diamond on Riverside park on Sunday, There will be three games played Sunday. The firjt one will take place at 2 o'clock on the lower diamond be tween the Brooklyns and and the Mer rlmacs and the second one at 4 o'clock between the Washington Hills and the North Ends. The third game will be played at 3 o'clock on the upper dia mond between the ,St Josephs and the Pastimes.' Manager James Thompson of the North Ends has resigned in order to devote his time to the Consolidated team of which he is one or the mana gers. President Mareau of the North End club will put a s'trong team in the .field, however, tq compete against the -other toarasl t ": " - Tt all " probability-, the - City league will arrange some Saturday games in! order to complete the schedule, and to that effect a committee is' now at work looking over the field. , ! GOOD GAME TO-MORROW. The Consolidated baseball team of ihls city will open the baseball, season here to-morrow on . the Waterbury Driving park grounds and the compet itor of the team will be the local Y. M. C. A. team. There Is much secrecy on the part of. the management of the two teams relative to the make up of the teams. The manager of the Y. M. C. A. refuses to divulge who the mem bers of the team will be 'while on the other hand the Consolidated team de cline to name their players unless the Y. M. C. A. do likewise. The Consoli dated team want this game badly be cause it will give them some prestige to start off the season with. The Y. M. C. A. , team say they will knock all thoughts of prestige out of the minds of the managers of. the Consolidated team before they are through with them. The game will be called at 3:30. ( WATERBURY IIIGn GAME. The Waterbury High school baseball team will cross bats with-the strong Danbury High school team at the Ath letic field to-morrow afternoon at 3:30. As this is the first home game for the local team there should be a large at tendance. A large number of tickets has already been sold. The local team 1s playing a first class game and as the eam from the hattingi town Is a fast one an interesting game may be expected. GOLDEN, EAGLES CHALLENGE.

THE PUGILISTS, B0XESS STILL DOING BUSINESS Kid Goodwin Wins His Bat tle in Grand Style Twin Sullivan and Hugo Fight a Fierce Draw Notes. St Lo-uis, May 13. Kid Goodwin and JackMcClelIand fought ten rounds to a draw here last night before a well filled house. Both lads showed up very cleverly and were in fine condition. Goodwin's cleveruess was very much In evidence, and for the ten rounds ht kept the hard-hitting McClelland from lauding the knockout punch all were looking for. It was thought, if the bout went the limit, Goodwin would get .the decision, but McClelland hin BcJt showed up well In this particular line, and in the seventh round opened up Goodwin'B eye with a wallop. After this kept repeatedly tapping the sore optic, and it bothered the Kid iuite a bit. In the ninth round things looked blue for McClelland, but he managed to pull through and even up toward the last. The decision was well received, as things were as even as the boys were In weight, c ' fttz Not dead. Within the next few days the pro posed bout between Jack Root and Bob Fitzsimmons will in all probability be arranged. Last Week a club in Chi cago offered a purse of $5,000 for a six round bout between Root and the Cpr nishman. Root accepted, but nothing was heard from Fltz relative to the offer until yesterday. Tne ex-champion, who is in Boston playing a week's engagement, said that he would fight Root In Chicago for the 'amount, but could not understand" why he was not notified officially about the purse. He said if the club shows him any cour tesy by doing this he might consider the battle. 'He added, however, that he. could, not think of fighting this month, as he would like to have plenty of time to do some training. Fltz has his eyes on meeting the winner of the O'Brien-McCoy boit, which Is to be held at Philadelphia 1 nxf. Karmvlnv i 'Jiight. "These two fellows say that rney are middle weights," observed Larky Bob. "Well, if so they are just the fellows I would like to have it oat with. Tommy Ryan says he is the middleweight champion He as no mare right to lay claim to this title than the man In the moon. I am the middleweigut champion, and they will have to whip me first before they can Say that they own it." . TWIN SULLIVAN DRAWS. V The sports of Indianapolis were treated to., a fine exhibition of the man ly art by Hugo Kelly of Chicago and Jack Sullivan of Boston on Wednesday night. . The men met before the Audi torium club and fought ten fast rounds, the outcome being a draw. There was not a round that the pair did not mix it up or come together. Despite this there was not a knockdown, nor much blood spilled... jSulllvn had to be cau tioned severaf Bines'" for using his el bow, but this violation of the rule was accidental and the referee overlooked .it. . , CANOLE AND. GANS. -I If Martin Canole is siiccessful iu de feating Battling Nelson of Chicago on .May 20, befere the San Francisco A. C, when theyt, clash for twenty rounds, ;he will be given a chance to meet Joe Gans during the month of July; Sev eral of the clubs have been after Gans and Britt, but., the, coast champion's coming east has put Canole In line for the light. : A - CAN THE REFEREE FIGHT? Jimmy Burke and Billy Griflin went ten rounds before the Eco club of Law rence, Mass, Wednesday night. De cision was a draw.' After the maiu event was over Joe Griflin, a brother of Billy Griffin, one Of - the principals in the main event, entered into a discus sion with Referee Hennessey; and the referee smashed Griffiu iu, the face, knocking him to the floor. Grilfln fought back and soon the club house was in pandemonium. This was the best fightof the night. ' IIERRERA BEATS LONG. Butt, .Mont, May 13. Aurelio Her rera got the decision over Louis Long in a twenty-round fight before the Montana v Athletic club.: it : was the first fight permitted' in the.,city since an order against fighting was issued by Mayor Mulling ten months ago, and 2,500 people packed the Broadway the ater. Herrera was the favorite, and a loiiof money was losfon his failure to knock Long out. The fight was tame for six rounds, but after, that it was a good go, Herrera being th aggressor. He landed as often as he wished, and never missed a blow, but seemed to have no steam. This evens up matters between the two fighters, as.Long-wou from Herrera six months ago. . OSCAR GARDNER AGAIN, Oscar Gardneiywho has been aching to get back In the ring, has finally got on a match, and the once game little fighter is duo to be seen in the squared circle before another month has gone by. Hatch Smith, the Omaha feather, will be Oscar's opponent. They will battle fifteen rounds. SHRU,BB'S GEEAT RUtf. He Covers Five Miles in World's Record Time of 24 Minutes. London, May 13. At Stamford Bridge yesterday, in the five-mile nm, Shrubb beat the record time, making it In 24 minutes. The 'best previous time was 24 minutes 40 seconds, made by J. .White. : , The performance by Shrubb yester day is probably the best of his many long distance records. He is an ama teur, while the time which he so easily disposed of was made by a profession al, Jack White,' the "Gateshead Clip per," as far back as May 11 1803. White was in this country in 1895, looking after the London A. C. inter national team. The best previous amateur, record for five miles was 24 minutes 53 3-5 seconds, by Sidney Thomas, who has competed here. The American record is 25 minutes 23 3-5 seconds. Shrubb sustained a sS of 4 minutes 48 sec onds for each 3 tie five miles. The effect produced by a good appearance is far reaching!
