Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGR SIX THE LETHBnipGE DAILY HERALD TUESDAY,. JUNE 4, 1918 'BRINGING UP FATHER" Efy G. McManus 5' BASEBALL BOXING RACING SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING BOYS AGAINST PRO BASEBALL From the "inside" come? sl-aight-Iromtlie-fhoiiUier advice to boys about protessional baseball, and it doesn't sound very alluring. George Sisier speaking: Si-iler of the St. Louis Browns, the man who Is racing so hotly with Ty Cobb in batting, tlie miin who lias played every position -and therefore is one of America'.s most versatile players, the only man �who stepped straight from a college diamond into a hig league and made good from the go-off. .-Vnd this is what he says, in a long nrticle on playing ball in the .lune number of the American Bay magazine: '1 have played ball almost ever since r can remember. I presume 1 j)layed more than most of the other fellows I liked it so well. Fii-K on the vacvnt lots around Ak-j ron. Ohio, and then on tlie high school diamond. I kept constantly at it. I had 110 oppoiiuniiies which are not open luinibor of the American Boy magaz-have more. Any boy who will practice.steadily and put some study and thought on i tlie game can improve greatiy. Of course natural 'ability counts for a good deal, yet it alone is not enough. It must he developed by practice and study if one is to become even an ordinarily good ballplayer. The hoy , with but ordinary ability can, if he J makes a. real,effort, often surpass the boy with tar greater ability. Hard work counts in baseball a.s in everything else, and the chap who tries to get along without it failS in the end. "I do not believe that any boy Bbould put baseball above everything else, or make an effort to attain skill In baseball his principal aim in life. Do not allow yourself to be dazzled liy the big salaries which you hear are paid to ball players. These are exceptional, and you must remember that one can not earn them for very many years. There are many positions Letter than those even in the big lea-igiies, and almost any position which Ss open to a boy of education la better In the long run than a place In the minors. The ballplayer la usually through before he js :ir>, just when most men are beginning lo accomplish something in business, and unless he has trained himself for business ov saveil a fortune he Is in a difficult position. So tht wise boy will stay in scliool .iust as long as he can and prepare | him. ? > : ? : ? ? ?

The box score, what is it? Supposedly a compilation of figures showing the work of two hall clubs engaged in a game. It Is taken as the final and conclusive proof of an argimient, the Alpha and Omega of base ball. Hut is it? Nowhere is the proof less conclusive than in the modern box scores. Fans view the box score and remark. "So and so made three hits, all of them singles.' But, the same box' score \^ould be more enlightening -if there was an additional column or so added to the present form. For in.stance. there might be a place for scratch hits, for the benefit of the reader and an "out of luck" column for the batters. Who has not' seen a game in which a batter toppetl t^o ball for a dinky, twisting,, infield hit, which looms large as a single in the figures the next day? And who has not seen some other batter take a vicious swing at the ball and drive it squarely into some fielder's hands?. \ box score tells npthing of siniilar Instances, and no matter how hard or far a ball is hit, if it is caught the batter is given no, credit. Neither does the score tell of the conditions under which a batter hits. It the count is three balls and two strikes and the pia.ver makes a hit, it is obvious that he knew that the ball would be a "cripple" and over the plate. Yet another man making a hit with the count of two strikes and no balls, receives no more credit than the first one. Then the circumstances under which a ball is batted greatly influences its chance to fall safely. Forced to Swing. On the hit-and-run play the, batter is forced to strike at a ball agreed on in advance between hint and the liifio runner. If he hits a bad pitch and places Ihe hall so that It will advance the runner, he is due more praise than he will ever get in the scores. The only thing a box indicates is an out-and-hlt safety. Often with a man on first the pitcher is forced to eliminate his wind-up. It takes but little figuring to know that It is easier to hit a twlrler who is not going Vhrough his preliminary motions. Y^et the figures in the score convey no hint of the hits made under those- conditions. Neither is a batsmen given credit when a leaden footed base runner deprives him of a sacrifice hit. When the season averages are Issuet^ nothing Is there to shov/ that the batter laid down a perfect bunt and was penalized for the lack ot alertnoas by the base runner. Agarin when a team uses both right and left-handers in the same game, nothing in the box Indicates, whether .the opposition batters, get their hits off,the southpaw or Vight'bander. It is a generally accepted faof that it is hardej- for a left handed hitter to make hits oft a 8outhpa>y. ^ Feud Act.

No. 1 hard dra-w-Ing five other players, two from what could be called Class .\ beiiig those with 20 handicap or lees and three from Class B those above a 20 handicap, making in all a six man team, the' total of the several teams handicaps to be as near equal as the draw committee can arrange. Then draw the teams against each other, letting the opposing caiiet*eore to get a prize ot one good golf ball eacii, balance lo go to Nur.slng Mission after deducting thirty cents for the imrposc ot buying some coat hooks for our borrowed club house. It would tak? about one week to get all the games played, resulting in a little keen rivalry, a little club spirit, a general inixinB up of t^ff players, which can result in nothing but pleasantness and would K'vo us a cliance to size up the year's membership. In fact one of the players on each team could be an absolutely green man. and so add. to the iincertainty ot any team having a walkaway. It could in this manner be a ^liniature drive for new niem-bors. There would be some real fun on account of the team rivalry rather than an individual playing against the whole world as is usually the case. We absoluTely refuse to accept a life membership for having given the above suggestions. and tniplomenta for the carrying out of the crop ot 1918. also came last week., The growth has becif retarded somewhat by the cold weather hut Ihe fine weather now prevailing Is just what Is needed most in this district. NOBLEFORD, Nobleford, Juno 3.-The rain stortn which broke over here on Thursday night at 8 o'clock was certainly appreciated by all. A number 'of our farmers were looking ver.v anxious in regard to weather conditiouH though the snow that we had a short time back did good, still more moisture was required. Certainly we got a hatful, for it kept on in nice showers till yesterday afternoon and now if you see a man with a big, broad smilc^on his face, why he is a farmer. The crops are looking great and everything uuw points to a good harvest. LOCAL BOYS LOSE ORION. Orion, May ;il.-The ' sharp frosts of the 25th and 2Glh took hold of the wheat which was on tlie lower .lands. Wheat on the hills mloea not appear to have been more than just touched by frost. The general opinion Is that very little damage has been done considering the Keveru frosts v.-c liavo had. .May 31 we are having a good rain mixed with hall close into town, this has been the heaviest rain of the season and from every appearance there is more to follow. This is what the flax and all crops needed and it win give the pa.stures juat the �moisture needed. The gardens wcro also in need of rain. NEryilSCAM. Nemiscam, June 3.-All seeding i."" done in this district, the frosts haye done practically no damage, hut the dry weather has retarded �onic of the grains from growing. The dry spell was broken yesterday by a good. rain, which lasted off and on for about four hours and it also rained in the night, this will d'o an awful amount of good and although the grain was not actually suffering it came in good time to help tremendously. COALDAL'E Coaldalo, June 3.-Crops here havo not advanced as rapidly as early Indications would suggest. The cold weather, frosts at night, etc., havo re. tarded progress. But this is not without its valuo in view ot the lack ot moisture. Nothing has suTferod yet. Friday's rain it has boon reported Went down threo inches, and is sufficient to eerniinatc flax and other late seeding. I'copio passing through our district say that crops here compare most favorably with those In other places. The winds have been of no benefit, and some fields have suffered considerably in this respect. MAGRATH iMagralh,) May 31..-t^Thc rain which started last night has continued in fine steady showers all day and all farmers are happy and crops never were in better shape for a bumper yield. ALlilRCES tCO.N'TINUl^I) PRO.M FRONT I'AGK) CARMANGAY. Carmangay, June 3.-The several hours' ruin last week In this district, followed by the warm weather have done wonders for the crops, which are in excellent condition.

Two Bjiseball Games Played Here Yesterday With Taber and Macleod Lethbridgo boys entertained two visiting teams on .Monday, tlic King's birthday, and split even on the day's play. In the afternoon the High School boys stacked up against the .Macleod H.S. winning by 9-8. In the evening quite a crowd assembled at the ball park when the Taber boys took a team of younger fry from the city into camp by 13-11. The High School team reaped revenge in the afternoon session fontiis 6-1 defeat adminlster;ed them at Macleod on May 24th. Macleod led till the fourth when Lethbridgo came to bat and blneled out five runs, ten men facing the pitcher. Ridpath was shooting over the slants for tho locals and was seldom in serious trouble. All the boys played well, and some snappy ball was seen. Gardner, the visiting catcher was the hero at the bat. The boys lined up as followe: Letlibridge-Hyssop rf.
