Which points to the conclusion that the pitchers of tliirty years ago were more sorvicGablc than tiio present crop ot hurlors or else tliR batsmen ot the present time are more difficult to deceive than 'wero the. ancient aliiggiM's like BroiUliers, Anson, Thompson, Connor and others ot that period Whatever the reason may have boon baseball history records the tact that the pitchers ot 2.'. k) 'M years Hgn did not ."jccm to thinlc they were earning tlieir by no means extravagant aalu-ricG unless lliey pitched three x>r four complete games each wnok and played in tlie outfield on the days that they wero not in the boj.-. Old-Tlmcrs Handicapped. There Is no basis for a claim that tho conditions under wlilclt the moundsrficn of old worked wero easier llian those that now prevail. On the contrary tho rules governing the delivery lo tho batter v.-cre much more trying than they now are. The greatest handicap placed on pitchers from 1,S70 to ISSti was what was known as the high and low ball rule. T'ndor thivi rule the batter could call for a liall between llie knee and the bell and the shoulder, and ihia enabled many liard hitters to insist I on the delivery of the ball at the I exact heifflt where they could host jhit. it. Uroulhcrs, Thompson, Coiuior I and others who could best hit a ball between tho knee aiul the b'3ll did torrltic execution, and Pop Anson, who prefer.-Gd a hall betwc.cn tho belt and tho shoulder, also played havoc Willi Iho pitchers. Natural Batsmen, liowever, all these men were nat-1 ural batsnun. and oven after the aho-i lit'on of tho high nnd low bail tiicy I convinued to clout the apheroiil with j tlic greatest vigor. It is qiiosiionable i if the fpfl foct distance whi-jh the 1 pUchers sto.rl from the homo plate in I the early 'SO.i was any .special advan-itapc. but in any event the high a-id j low ball overbalaneed all other con-l>plderatlons. I Tiio ,pitchfr mi.ght shoot the ball j strxught over the plate, but if it hap-pened to go below the bolt lino v;hen ! a high ball had been called for it was l^doclared a ball. Therefore the pitcher I not only wati rctjuired to send the hall over tho plate, but also at a certain I height. , H modern moundsmen were com- III!
