49 Alterations CTICAGO UP The Baseball Rides Committee moved Monday to speed up games and reduce the number of intentional bases on balls The group headed by Chicago Cubs Business Manager Jim Gal lagher made 49 changes mostly for clarification or definition The committee asked the major leagues to enforce strictly the 20 second rule on pitchers which has been in the book for years but which has rarely been enforced The rale requires pitchers to deliver tile ball within20 seconds after taking the mound if the bases are unoccupied Otherwise the pitch is an automatic ball The committee asked that third base umpires hold stopwatches on the pitchers The procedure will be under experimentation in pre season games this spring In the move to reduce the num ber of intentional bases on balls the catchers box will be reduced to a 43inch wide rectangle 17 inches wide directly behind home plate The catcher must remain with both feet in the box until after the pitcher delivers If either foot moves outside the box before the pitch it will be ruled a balk The committee also changed the rule so that each runner gets at least one base without danger of a putout in case of a balk Pre viously the batting team could take either the penalty or the play To keep teammates from gather ing near a base to confuse the defense in close plays and to pre vent a batter or runner irom hindering a following play the committee ruled that umpires may declare runners in such cases out for interference The rule covering suspended games was rewritten to provide that weather conditions take prece dence in determining whether a gameis suspended or called Thus should a game be delayed by light failure and weather later pre vents resumption it will be a than a suspended game Some rules were revised for the purpose of clarification or defini tion for example was to coach and base runner to runner If a player hits a home run breaks his leg en route to first base the new rule provides that substitute runner be permitted to complete the play Sport Parade By OSCAR FRALEY United Press Sport Writer ROCHESTER N Y lot of baseball men are hailing Willie Mays as the greatest of them all but the Say Hey kid who led the New York Giants to the world championship assessed himself to day as an incomplete player who wishes he could hit like Stan Modestly wearing the Hickok Belt awarded to him a the Professional Athlete of the Year Willie asserted that one good year doesnt make a And although he won the National League batting championship with a fat 345 average Mays insisted that Ive got to improve my hit If he doesnt he figured he could wind up as the goat of 1955 should the Giants blow the pennant Its real flattering to hear a lot of folks compare me with Mu and Ivegot to face it Im not really established I dont think you can tell until after four or five Surprises Himself Willie the 23yearold outfielder who was the sensation o last sea son confessed that Tie even himself I figured I might hit about 25 home said the man who hit and that I anight bat about 280 or But he won the National League batting crown he said because he stopped trying to hit home runs at a stage when he was far in front of Babe Ruths record pace of 1927 when the Bambino com piled his magic 60 When I was hitting those home runs the pitchers were knocking me down about three times a Willie estimated The other time I was just banging the ball into a big out So I went to Leo Durocher and told him I was just going to concentrate on getting those singles The pitchers dont bother to knock down the singles and doubles hitters so I began to get my baso hitv Aims For Versatility But I still have to improve my Willie added I have to learn how to bat against different types of pitchers and how to hit to all fields I sure wish I could hit like that In making the rubber chicken circuit Willie is asked most often about that picture catch he made in the first game of the World Series when he went back to the wall at the Polo Grounds to make an overthe shoulder catch of Vic Wertz boom ing drive Willie grinned I didnt think that was a particularly hard catch I justlooked up once and then went back to where it was goingto come down Why Ive made three or four harder catches than that The toughest was i against the Dodgers in 1S51 on a sinking line drive hit by Bobby Morgan I dove 15 feet for that one and I caught it but as I did my elbow jammed back into my stomach and knocked me Area Results ROPPS FIVE WINS GRASS Truck ers of Royal Center blasted the Grass Creek Indees in a
