Springfield v-aot fflad shock yesterday when Rube Yickera waa blown off the verch he clambered onto iu his first turn wgalnst the Ponies. Score 11 to I. In giving Vickers the first lump of adness ever rolled up by Springtielii ktrugglers, the Poniea were spurred vtlong by the Holyoke moluuge of merry misplay making. Circus litera ture might put It down as a gorgeous ly stupendous aliow of the possibili ties of it championship collection oC phere-haudling stars. But the blunt er . bleacher description would be in one word suggestive ot the dump. Even if mournful Vickers wus. volley ed witli 11 vips, the seven slobbery shows of handling the ball that Mere init forth by Holyoke were bigger helpers In the run-total bloating pro cess. After having a three run lead, the J'oiiies got into the" muck when the :hauips chased the tying ruus home iu the fifth. This, gave the hopeful Holyoke inspectors of progress a chance to figure that another gam - was about to begin with neither team having the top place at the go-off. Hut Kpringfleld stumbled iinto some swats :it once and a string of the most gi gantic of the local blunders. This mess made the run trail much betrack ri bv l'onv hoofs, four stragglers get ting 'to the tablet. After this, the crowd watched on , and made com ments upon the amount of sorony that was being plied up on the defenselss . Ilube. ,., ' , - ' There was activity' in the early in nings. Umpire McLnculan was suffer ing from almost complete loss of vi sion. His lamps glimmered fearfully and the .flickering gave him oportunl " ties to entertain with some guessing efforts., Mr McLachlan is no Yaukeo at this game. There were points in the work of the-charnploifs that were good enough -to be snown Hgain. tieiue miu. played the third base with as richly effective methods as anyone could in troduce. His bunt-choking endeavors were brought 'on', with the showiest of speed and every effort counted. Bert whistle fielded beaivtirully, Fitzpat-rk-k got two of the six safeties that were wrung away from Bowler, ltube Vickers. with a home run - lift over right field fence in the ninth after tW6 were out and no one wast on the sack I circuit, got a little injection of cour acre reviver. (Jeorgft.. Hemming was leader in the brutal assault on Rube. Uijcle George i-ame up live times, sacrificed ouce and on each other occasion jabbed the ball to safety spots. One of the slashes netted an extra base and butfor the .fielding of Bertwblstle, another base ' might have been gained on another of .' the biffs. One muff of a, thrown ball tne oreacii uemg mtrouuceu: Dy, jacK Hannifin, a Holyoke boy, was the lone break of, the Ponies. Hannifin was full of speed in all sections of the pla Connor's catching was backed up by gome splendid base running. lu the ifeneral display of baseball, the Ponies surpassed the efforts put forth in the opening game here to an incalculable , extent.. .The score: t ' Springfield.

Manager Tracy tave Ramsey who was obtained from Jersey City, a trial yesterday after noon and New London hit htm safely fourteen times. A, new catcher-was also tried and he lasted seven innings. Then -the crowd yelled for King, who is on the bench most of the time, and In deferenco to the wishes of the fans King was put in the game. S Ramsey pitched under discouraging conditions, as the other pitchers have. While Manager Tracy , is on a trip to buy pitchers he would have more suc cess in winning games if he had some players who conld hit the ball Instead ,f having strikes called on them. In the fourth inning yesterday Long split the plate three times for Cross and the youngster did not offer at any of the nice ones. Ramsey 'fielded his position finely and with good support and a hit ting team back of him he wonld prob ably win his share of the games. There is not a roan on the local team who can be depended upon to hit the ball and the outlook is discouraging for the owner and manager. Mr Tracy ays be will get the right men If It H possible and he expects to land som to-day. Yesterday's game was In many pespeets a repetition of the oth tvs here this season. The Ilartfords showed but little life and many fans think they ought to be called the Parkerites, because they have so little to say, on the coach line and in the game. The score: U.H.E N.

Bridgeport jumped into a tie with Holyoke for sec ond phice in the race In the Connecticut league yesterday afternoon, when she trimmed the homeless "pick-up" aggre gation from New Haven to the tune of 0 to 2. The Bines did not have a day off. They played their -usual game, al though a trifle -weak at the bat They failed to connect with little Nichols's delivery. . The Bridgeport put ip one of the strong games they are capable of, and outplayed the visitors in the iufleld, were snappier in base running, pounded the ball harder, and, in a word, played faster ball from start to finish. .The feature of the game was the stick work of the Orators. . They Jzed np that Is. the four at the head of the hatting list did the delivery of Hannifan and hanged him for keeps and runs. Foster lined the ball for two doubles and a single, thus fatten ing up his batting average comfortably.

May 1 4. -Worcester, the In fant of the league, snuffed Meriden'a .candle at Hanover park Friday after noon early in the game, and the local players staggered through the rest of the contest Jn the hypnotic darkness which emanated from the Tighe Tec rors. A Eleven to four was the score which the blackboard In center field showed at the close of the ninth in ning, but of the terrific slugging by both tfanis and the fast fielding which cropped out at Intervals the score told nothing. The Worcester team bat as though they loved nothing better than the crack of the ball and the swish of the long grass in the far. rear. Fri day tht?y tripped to the plate as merrily as to a picnic and almost Invariably the ball with a dull, sickening thud, rapidly changed its course and sailed away over the heads of the fielders. Eighteen lilts, including a thre-bnse drfve, and four two-baggers, was the total that the blue coated collection of stars that shine in the Kittridge firma ment rang up off the Meriden pitchers' delivery.

Charley is W of the few ball players who is always willing to work and never trtos to shirk any task that is banded up to hirnl New Loudon Day. . Manager O'Neil: "Jim, I under stand that the Holyoke people say that if Bridgeport wins another ganm from them they'll disband their team." Manager O'Rourke: "I tell you what is is, Mr O'Neil. If we don't win more games from Holyoke than they do from us I'll disband my team and get out of baseball.' Springfield Repub lican. ; - Joe Connor-played It on Schincel. When a short jassed ball gave Connor a chance to move 'up a base, he went to third and got up steam on the 'way, swinging for the home plate so quickly that Schincel couldn't get the ball in time to retire him. It was a play re quiring speed and base ball brains, both of which Connor has. Springfield Fniou. ' " head . .; -.; . -'.. Tom Bannon is no longer captain of the New London team. Catcher Arm bruster is now the Whalers' captain. It is said that Bannon did not want the captaincy and the change was made yesterday. It may be so that Bannon is pleased with the change, but the didn't act like himself yester day. He was a dead rabbet, and not the live scrapper of other days, .Torn ought not to play first anyway. He isn't built for it and while be may play some good games he will play more "poor ones. New London has a fine team with a, good first baseman. Meriden Journal. , In the line of the "deadly parallel," read this from the Bridgeport Stand ard: "If Bridgeport plays the game as it should be played, New Haven ought to be well started on the road to ruin after the two games here Fri day and Saturday. Da naber's crowd has no license to trim anyone,, not even the umpire." Then cast your eye over this one, printed two paragraphs below the above: "Dauaher's New Havens will play two games In succes sion at Newfleld park Fridayand Sat urday. The team from the Elm City is playing good ball' .lust at present, and the fans will undoubtedly witness a brace of fast contests."

American league. Some years ago it was announced that Young was about ready for retirement. Hehas been usingbis fast ball so much that there waa a general im pression that he bad about worked him self out. . The following season the big twirler from Ohio made his appearance on the diamond with a new slow ball that allowed him to give his speedy de livery a rest, and he continued to pitch winning ball. Last year . Young- per formed better on the rubber than ever before in his career. All the while, how ever, he was studying some new method by which he might remain in the game a few years longer, and he confesses that he has solved the problem, and this year will see something added to his stock in trade that will make him.quite as valua ble to the Bostons as he was last .season.
