Grilfith Is argu- ing lor the abolition of the "spit 'shine "mud ball" "em- ery "tallow and overy other kind of trick pitching in which Ihe ball is "doped" in any way; "Griff bas become so exasperated In his fight against .this unfair and un- natural advantage taken by some pitchers that he has ordered all of his staff to adopt trick methods in order to force the Issue. Already Doc Ayers has proved one of the season's sensations since-he began "loading" the ball, and Griff, says that Walter Johnson is practicing with the "shiner'1 that will upset the league, t has been afraid to use it in mo through fear ot killing some- The spltba.ll, tie most common and 51 known of these, freak deliveries, been in. use for a good many ars, and Is the'only slock in trade many hurlera.

This weird 'swerving ball was the discovery-of flusa Forfl, who was with the Yenkecs several years ago. Ford used this bail for two years without discovery and might-have retained hla secret yet had. ho not conflidcd in hiETpal and catcher, Ed. Sweeney..Sweeney told before eacli pitch. He would roughen pot on the ball about Ihc size ol a dollar at a point where tho seams were farthest opart. The effect ot the'air on this rough surface as against the smooth surface was un- canny. Ford was one ot tho leading pitchers ln> baseball colely due io its unusual swervings. The" mud-ball, as used by "Doc" Ayera'of Washington, Is moro of an optical illusion than anything else. One side of-the sphere' Is stained with licorice or tobacco'juice and dirt, and the other sEde of tbc ball Is kept as ns possible. When Ibis comes up revolving, it is very hard for tho eye to Judge its flight correctly enough to hit It'squarely. The umpires usual ly throw this ball out if stained too much. Joe Finneran, of the fanks, has pot In the leg of his trousers smearcc Ith paraflne against which he rubs be ball. "This fills up the seams ball on one side, making it mooth as against the other side. fceen called the tallow-ball, 'horhiahlen uses a similar ball. Some of the- other -trick pitchers se beeswax, vaseline, tallow and uch.substances. Al Demareo and thera have their back pockets filled ith resin dust, in whlctTthey dip he ends of Ihelr fingers, thus Insur- ng a firmer grip on'the ball. Even Griffith himself was the first to use roughened the his but'was really Ig- norant, of the phengmena. 'Although the methods of doping the >all are varied; th'e principle'or-tho ihenpmena is-the" same'. The curve of.the ball Is due Inequality of air pressure on a given Bide of tbe ph'efe.

Chicago, July roughened, or whether one side of .he- ball has been smothered or 'shlneci." .The roughened side of a hall offers more resistance to the air than the smooth sldo, and consequently, the ball follows of the'least re- sis 'swerves toward the side on which tho smooth side Is re- volving. To prove this you can try this ex- periment in your own bathtub. The medium is'water instead of air. -At- tach a string to any symelrlcal object ol which one side has been rougheh- en' enough to offer resistance to the water. Pull the object along through the water by tbe string and you will see that Its course deviates toward the smooth side. However, the spit ball Is a queer ono and has ils peculiar drop from the partial vacuum formed behind the ball. The ball does not revolve anil pushes n column of1 air hcforo at the same time forming the vacuum in tho rear. In Its course it reachca a point where the difference In pres- sure is enough to affect? tho flight, I.e., decrease the momentum to cause the ball to die.
