Mean- has made Cobb a marvelous base Van making him hit bad ones, pulling him off his balance with a clever change of pace, are as Greek to the average young pitcher breaking into the game. Keeping runners close to the bases Is another thing the amateurs sho.uld learn. He should develop a motion that deceives the runner and catch him flat-footed. The clever major .league pitcher works -with his infield all of the time.. In a pinch, if he has good control, he i delivers the ball so the batter will' pop up an infield fly or hit a weak roller that is handled. By i pitching over the inside or the out- side corner when a batter is trying to sacrifice, the pitcher can him bunt in a desired direction and thus' force the runner. These things are; part of the education of the major leaguer, but there is no reason why ihe amateurs should not learn them. How many amateurs or semi-pro- fessionals go to first base at full speed, head up and watching the ball? The majority duck their head j and don't think of the ball. They tear! across the base never thinking oi I turning to the left to gain or 20 i feet toward second in case the ball is fumbled, or loosely handled. The bat- ter should always make the turn tow- ard second, to be in a position to continue if opportunity offers. He should size up the situation quickly. and act without hesitation. Often when the chances are even his speed causes a hurried throw and he is safe, when, had he hesitated; he would have been an easy out. The runner should always watch {he ball. Going toward second or third j the ball being returned from the out-' field, he can judge upon which side tiie infielder win receive the sphere and by 'sliding for the opposite side of the base, may avoid being touched. With a runner on, none being the batter is ordered to sacrifice. The pitcher endeavors to make him bunt along third for Instance. The instant the ball is pitched he dashes in the direction he knows the ball wiii roll.
