Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 4, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, AUGUST THE f KB RIDGE DAILY HERAM1 PAGE rmn DIGEST OF RULE 51 BRINGS SOME1 FACTS TO LIGHT Here is a case that occurred in the IjOthbridgc and game between North Knox teams at the Athletic' park last Monday evening in which a scor- er was present and both teams were supposed to have, or ought to have, a copy of the line-up (it teams. C. Gillis ol" North was lost out in the 7th innings In the Kth innings Oimsworth should have hatted, followed by Lombard and A. Gillis, but Stafford who correctly should have batted after A. (.iJ.lis, went fo bat in place of llunsworth got away with it. The Herald scorer did something out of his pro- vince, called the attention nt the Knox manager to the occurrence af- ter the. innings was' concluded. The Herald reporter got "his" for not informing earlier. However, a digest of the rules will showithat the man- ager "was not on lo his job or he would have known thai he still had a sound case in the eighth or as long BASEBALL NO I-JITS.-NO RUNS, NO MAN TO REACH.'FIRST, OUT 18 Malta, Mont., Aug. a same here Saiunlay' between Chinook, 1'itcher Navarre of the Clii- uooli aub shut out the opposing1 team without a hit and without allowing1 a man to read, lirsl bane. Hlghtccu Malta hutsmen struck out. A of saletics, sandwiched wiih two stolen liases and a sacrifice, were responsible [or Chinook's four runs. .Navarre's performance was the most, remarkable hil of pitching ever .seen in north'.'rn Montana. At no time was the Chinook heaver in any climber oi slipping, and the Malta hitters were helpli'ss before his speed j anil control throughout the entire I nine frames. Malta's only clianuu to reach first came in the ninth, on a passed tiiird striKC. The ball was recovered in time to retire the runner.

All the usual ways of retiring a lialsman arc pretty well hnottn the (ic'lieral run of basebitll ilevnti-ra, ytiuiiK or old, but there arc a few which crop out only occasionally con- cerning which there is much miscon- ception not to say ilensc ignorance. One of the least understood rules in the toiie has to do with the batsman who hats out of turn. Much of this may he laid at tlie door of the rule ilst'Ii hut, it is about as plain as it can In- made. The tangle dots not of- ten arise in the big leagues, not of- tener than once a year or so, hut prairie Raines, where score cards arc unknown ami teams more or less pick- ed up, it is of more frequent occur- rence. H is the popular impression lhat a player who bats out oi turn is out, provided the mistake is discovered. [nim ami claimed before the hali has been pitched to the succeeding batsman. The man who batted out'of turn is not out, but his act automatically I puts out the man who ought to have hatted in that turn, and nothing the improper batsman docs counts in the name. Suppose D is the fourth bats- man in order and K the filth. Along in the seventh inning K goes lo hat in D's place with the bases [u.l. and lifts a home run over the frncf. 'the mistake is then discovered and called tn the umpire's attention. If the umpire knows his hook he will immediately declare f> out and send all the runners back to the bas- es which they occupied when the ball was hit. Then he will send to bat again, because, it will he his proper turn. If declaring D out made the third out the inning would end there and V noultl be first at hat in the next inning. But if the mistake was not discovered until after a ball had been pitched to. batsman regu- larly fo.l.owini; home run u-otild have to'stand and the lour which scored on it would count. Supposing 1C, hatting in D's is retired, then F. comes to bat. I''! also is batting out of turn, because i it is.properly E's tiini to, bat, you sec, and if F does-anything except get out the opposing team can call ittention to the mistake and have Ii declared out over again. This holds true until a batsman, batting out ot turn, has reached first base, when at; tention ..must be called to it before another hall is pitched or the play will stand. A lot of people seem to understand that the hatter is not out unless he makes a fair hit. On the contrary the batsman is out ii he hits the ball at all. Section 4 of rule 51 puts him out "if be bats Ihe ball illegally and rule 50 defines illegally batting the bail. Xeither says anything about fair or toul. j As peculiar as it may seem. it. is1 not considered a neutral scorer's or I the umpire's business to brini, a of this order to the attention of eith- er .side. The managers and captains of the suppu 'o he avvakc to these possibilities in base-! ball.
