There were forty-nine cases of hit- ting safely in ten or more consecu- tive games, with Eddie RpuBh of'Cin- cinnati the leader. Roush on August 37 began a streak.of safe hitting that endured for twenty-seven successive contests and yielded 46 hits in 1M times at bat till September 22, when Charles Adami Pittsburgh stopped Housh.

It would, not be missed. Retain Forwprd Pass The forward pass is a most spec- tacular play and should be retained In the game. But the haphazard throwing aoout .of the hall by a' de- feated team whlfh has nothing to iose okiyn. There were one hundred and six shutouts scored last season, the cluhs being shut out as follows: Chicago, j six times; Boston, ten times; Brook-! lyn, St. Louis aiid Philadelphia, twelve times each; New Yqrk, thirteen times; Pittsburgh, seventeen times, and Cin- cinnati, twenty-four ,timea.

I offer the following suggestion as a solution; Allow ona forward pass tifter each first down. This would not interfere with, the play as a threat, for the "opponent-never-knows' it will be used. Tt automatical- ly would make for a scientific develop- ment of the play. It" completed for the necessary ten yards, the pass would ho used again and again. To my mind, it would make for a much higher'development of forward pass formations and would eliminate the haphazard throwing about of the "ball. U would require that a team develop other parts of, the offense to an equal standard with the pass. It would not complicate the play, would most three-base hits, 99, aud Phila- ediphia.batted out the greatest num- ber of home runs, 64. New York leads in scoring1, with GS2 runs, and. Pittsburgh is the leading base stealing club, with 181 stolen bases. Chicago leads In sacrifice hits, with 220. Two hundred and thirty-seven play- ers were used by the eight National League clubs during the. paat season.
