When Jimmy Callahan was the Corsair commander the Pittsburgs got away witli tlio play twice. Pat Moran's Phillies worked the squeeze on their opponents twice, and so did Chribty Matliowson'a I�eds. Oeorge Stallings' Braves used the play once, but the Superbas, under Wllbert Robinson; the Giants, under .lohn Mc-Oraw, and the Chicago Cubs, under Fred, Mitchell, ITad no use for this scheme as a means of acquiring runs, and never once tried it. The only double squeeze of the year In 4jie National league wasiworked by the P,li!llies at Hie Polo.grounds In the sixth inning on April U", and became a xloublQ squeeze because Jeft Tesreau tninhled to the ground in picking up Oeorge Whitted's. bunt. Bancroft had scored by the time the ball reached the Now York pitclrer, and' Stock followed Davy homo when he aa\j' Tesreau jjn tlie turf-a wild throw from a .slttiiKf "jjosturo making Milton's voyage to the plate easier. Uuggihs" Cardinals were the only National league team to win games with the squeeze, gaining a victory over the Pirates on July 4 and one over the Reds on September 9.

Tliq triumphs were over \Vashlng],on, on April 19; over lloaton, on .nine 20, and 'over Detroit, on July 22, tlio three opposing batteries being Johnson and'Alnsmlth, Leonard aiid 'Phomaa and El^nike and Stallage.
