Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Tin DAILY t BASEBALL, PUGflJSTTC AND OTHER LIVE SPORT DOPE r% .o -POR-T-S MAN! BEHIND" KAKES A FEW POINTED MARKS JffREDDIE Welsh Meets Baldwin Tonight Freddie Welsh, deposed of England, and Matty Baldwin, warrior, from Boston, provide the headline event on this weekVpuglllstlc bill, the pair being scheduled to clash in a twenty-round affair at' San Francisco, Cal., tonight. (There Is nothing: particularly attractive 111 this battle to tho average ring follower for the reason that neither principal can be considered In the 133-po.uhd title reckoning, but out on the Pacific Coast, where Welsh: Is a they are looking to. his reappearance .with considerable'.eagerness. Welsh made a big hit with the Golden Gate fans'by his clean cut work in battles against such Pnckey McFarlarid, Abe Attell, Phil Brock and George Memsic, and thpee who. saw him iu action then pro- nounced him the ring wizard of the age. Welsh Is a all right, never will be a. real factor in the championship class for the 'reason that he lacks a punch heavy enough to cash. If.he .walop 1 n keeping with his marvelous skill he would be a mighty, formidable contender for the crown, of that no doubt. So far aa Baldwin Is concerned, he" does not shape up as an equal of the Briton. Matty is a frequent starter, but the short end of the purse generally, drops In blslrecoptive mlt. Owan Moran whipped him easily and so did Jem Drlscoll. Champion Ad Wolgast showed Matty up shamefully, but us this .'bout was staged in Baldwin's hor4e town, the classic Hub, the beat Adolphus received after a clean victory was a draw decision. It will bo seen from this that Baldwin Is not a boy to be feared, so Welsh'ought to whip aim without much troubble. THCV ARE CANNED At the City League football executive meeting held last evening Heferoe Tonnant's report on the Calljes-S. O. E. game was received, in which ho reported Page and Lee for fighting, and Firth for strik- ing the referee. The two for- ,mer players were suspended for ono month and Firth until December 31, 1911.

I want to say the game has changed. These-was no hit-and-run game to speak of-at that time. Duffy and Mc- Carthy introduced this line of work n 1892. Up to that time, and by most 'layers for some time later, men ran lases as individuals, .caring little ab- ut the score at the time, simply iook- ng for stolen bases, was onie remarkable throwing by the old itcherc, the pitchers hot holding the ien as close-to the bases, and steal- ay third bsse was etsy picking. Now he shortstop will hold a man at sec nd, and the pitchers working with he infield makes It a more difficult matter. In the old days there waa no .sting iajls by the pitcher to play for the man on base. The umpires ihad :more respect for the rules and forced the: pitchers to cut out the ,L-doubt if the game ever saw a more brilliant base runner than Ty Cobb..

The great .spurt of the Quakers at first looked like just i flash in the pan, out Charley Dooin haa a lot of .pepper into their veins and if the pitching staff can stand the burden, Philadelphia fans way not have to leave their own Iowa to witness the world's championship series next fail.

Others may.steal more basei than Cobb, but the Georgia flier Is king of base runners, of the put and -pres- ent. He has the speed, a great man to get off the mark, keeps the pitchers worried and can avoid being touched with the skill of a Mike Keller. The defence against base running Is grow- n, stronger each season, until the time la not (ar distant when a player stealing 50 baaes in one season will be crowned as a wonder.

June Macleod Junior baseball' team .which -went to Plncher Creek Coronation Day after- noon, were defeated by the home team by a score of 10-0. The boys howevtr Bad a good time and ha-.o arranged with tho Plnchor Creek team to play return match in the near fatjre. Before the game was very far on it'was seen that the request of the S.O.E for a neutral .referee for this game should have been granted by the Executive owing to the fact that the championship of the.league depended upon a the two teams were practically on points This was very evident within fifteen minutes of the kick-off, when Eastern fouled Clarke badly, when tha .player had goal: It cannot be said it was deliberate, for Easton one of the cleanest.p.layers in the In. view'ot'the. fact that the same referee has awarded penalty kicks against the Sons in previous matches for simple accidental handling of the ball, a penalty kick should undoubtedly have been given in this case. The early part of the game wan taken up by the Callies pressing, and things did look a little as though tho Sons would haie something to do to keep them out, but Coles was good enough on several occasions, and it was not long before the Sons turned tho tables and put their opponents on the defensive But not for long End to end play ruled for the major portion ot the first half, but the Callies had had .lots of practice and their team work better than the Sons Consequently aberever they played the ball they nere almost suie their friends were awaiting it Not so the Sons, for all Hough at times their stood out and some pretty work was seen yet in most cases a pass was wasted and seized upon ;by the Callies. But things Here pietty eien and it was anybody's game up till neaily half time when a beautiful centre from McMurtie put the Sons in a dangerous position! as Clemenson was coming right along The veteran, Bob Chlswlck, tho Sons right hack, copped the ball, but dallied a. little too long, and Clemenson was right upon him, received the shot and in a twinkling put in a stinger, which al- though Coles made a great effort to clear gave him no chance, and the Callies But the whites were not all in by any means, .but quickly took up the of- fensive and were in tho enemy's territory In. a being called upon to extend himself, which he nobly did, oil a great shot from Capt. Holborton. After the return pf( the ball to midfleld on some pretty work by the Scots Pcarsor made e bad mlskick, whlch'Thompson quickly took advan tage of, and bulged tho English net once more with a shot that gave Coles no chance. Shortly after the kick-off Bob Chiswlck'brought down the "house" with one of his old timers, and made one of the cutest steals1 from the big Calliu centre forward that has been.seen on. the grpimd. Ciemenson didn't see the joke, and made fot Chiswick, completely forgetting football, and bringing him down with probably the worst foul seep here The crowd on.both sides In no uncertain.toner, gave therr.opinlon of this act. The; ref- eree should have given Clemenson n severs reprimand for this act, or ordered him off for ungcntlemanly conduct, which qu'ts within bio right to do, but only a frco kick was given; 4. The Sons began io think they were not getting a square deal, and realized hat it was almost impossible for them to do anything In the way of evening ip. Hut when they crossed over they made changes in the line-up which were beneficial, and began playing better foolbpH ajlogsther. In fact tho halt to the Sons' made the. acore sheet mqre even, The trouble :that subsequently arooo, should haw been avoided, and would--hr vo'been had Pago obeyed rofo.Bn'E orders and left the field' for striking Lee. But the rest of the players hiul become more or lees hea'tod, and caused the ref. to change his decision to both off. That's where the ref. waa wealc. In a" previous game, Lee wnn ordered off for assuming an. offenaive attitude after having been ghen a bad foul on more than one occasion, but the man caused the trouble allowed to remain This time Pfcge struck at Lee, who put himself in an attitude of defence, as any white man would do but on thls.occaslon.tho.offended.had to go too. TWe undoubtedly could hsvo been avoided had tho ref remained firm to his decision The subsequent action of Firth in striking the referee was a bad offence and deforced punish- ment, but if what we hear Is true, Teunant brought It upon himself by his bad language to Firth, and he can blame no one but himself. It is too bad tho game should have come to sqch an eadtftf, evpaqjajly aa there were ao many of tho fnir sex present, and it Is to be hoped that the executive will be more careful In future of the referees thej put oa the field, and so avoid any suggestion of partiality The Overseas are to be congratulated on winning their Drat away fixture.
